Nearly a century after the Armenian genocide, these people are still being slaughtered in Syria

Nearly a century after the Armenian genocide, these people are still being slaughtered in Syria

And now, almost unmentioned in the media, their holy places are also being desecrated

 

Just over 30 years ago, I dug the bones and skulls of Armenian genocide victims out of a hillside above the Khabur River in Syria. They were young people – the teeth were not decayed – and they were just a few of the million-and-a-half Armenian Christians slaughtered in the first Holocaust of the 20th century, the deliberate, planned mass destruction of a people by the Ottoman Turks in 1915. [Ron: As usual Robert Fisk tell half the truth either through ignorance or design. Donmeh Jews in the Ottoman (Turkish) government and military were responsible for the Armenian holocaust and genocide. See eg: Kemal Ataturk was a Donmeh Sabbataen (a pretend Muslim) when the Donmehs were subverting the Ottoman Empire and instigating the Armenian Holocaust. See: http://abundanthope.net/pages/Political_Information_43/Kemal-Ataturk-was-a-Donmeh-Sabbataen-a-pretend-Muslim-when-the-Donmehs-were-subverting-the-Ottoman-Empire-and-instigating-the-Armenian-Holocaust.shtml And: The Armenian Genocide. See: http://abundanthope.net/pages/Political_Information_43/The-Armenian-Genocide.shtml And:  Deja Vu All Over Again: Israel Expected to Deny Another Jewish Genocide of Gentiles—Blames Russians for Immoral Israeli Denial. See: http://abundanthope.net/pages/Political_Information_43/Deja-Vu-All-Over-Again-Israel-Expected-to-Deny-Another-Jewish-Genocide-of-Gentiles-Blames-Russians-for-Immoral-Israeli-Denial.shtml ].

It was difficult to find these bones because the Khabur River – north of the Syrian city of Deir ez-Zour – had changed. So many were the bodies heaped in its flow that the waters moved to the east. The very river had altered its course. But Armenian friends who were with me took the remains and placed them in the crypt of the great Armenian church at Deir ez-Zour, which is dedicated to the memory of those Armenians who were killed – and shame upon the “modern” Turkish state which  still denies this Holocaust – in that industrial mass murder.

And now, almost unmentioned in the media, these ghastly killing fields have become the killing fields of a new war. Upon the bones of the dead Armenians, the Syrian conflict is being fought. And the descendants of the Armenian Christian survivors who found sanctuary in the old Syrian lands have been forced to flee again – to Lebanon, to Europe, to America. The very church in which the bones of the murdered Armenians found their supposedly final resting place has been damaged in the new war, although no one knows the culprits.

[Ron: Robert Fisk masquerades as a knowledgable journalist on Middle Eastern affairs YET he says "no one knows the culprits."! By now everyone who has spent any real effort researching the war on the Syrian people perpetrated by USrael, France, Britain, Saudia Arabia, Qatar, Turkey, Jordan and their allies, KNOWS that those countries and their Muslim mercenary death squads and paid terrorists are "the culprits". In particular the death and destrutction in Syria is perpetrated by foreign mercenaries drawn from all over the world but primarily from Saudia Arabia, Qatar, Libya, Iraq, Turkey, Jordan, Chechnya, Lebanon and Israel. And of course some greedy Syrian criminals and psychopaths are also  involved.].

Yesterday, I called Bishop Armash Nalbandian of Damascus, who told me that while the church at Deir ez-Zour was indeed damaged, the shrine remained untouched. The church itself, he said, was less important than the memory of the Armenian genocide – and it is this memory which might be destroyed. He is right. But the church – not a very beautiful building, I have to say – is nonetheless a witness, a memorial to the Holocaust of Armenians every bit as sacred as the Yad Vashem memorial to the victims of the Jewish Holocaust in Israel. [Ron: There was NO jewish Holocaust! NONE! And Robert Fisk must know that unless he is an idiot. See eg: Before and after the “Holocaust”: Jewish population numbers in 1933 and 1948 - http://abundanthope.net/pages/Political_Information_43/Before-and-after-the-Holocaust-Jewish-population-numbers-in-1933-and-1948.shtml And: Official German Record of all Prisoners in Auschwitz Concentration Camp from May of 1940 through December of 1944. See: http://abundanthope.net/pages/Political_Information_43/Official_German_Record_of_all_Prisoners_in_Auschwi_2737.shtml

And although the Israeli state, with a shame equal to the Turks, claims that the Armenian genocide was  not a genocide, Israelis themselves use  the word Shoah – Holocaust – for the Armenian killings.

 

In Aleppo, an Armenian church has been vandalised by the Free Syrian Army, the “good” rebels fighting Bashar al-Assad’s regime, [Ron: The USraeli organised mercenary Death Squads and terrorists in Syria are NOT fighting Bashar al-Assad’s regime, they are attaking the Syrian people!] funded and armed by the Americans as well as the Gulf Sunni Arabs. [Ron: ALL opposition fighters in Syria are TERRORISTS and NONE of their deeds are  "good" since they seek to destroy Syria and its people in order to plunder the nation.].

But in Raqqa, the only regional capital to be totally captured by the opposition in Syria, Salafist fighters trashed the Armenian Catholic Church of the Martyrs and set fire to its furnishings. And – God spare us the thought – many hundreds of Turkish fighters, descendants of the same Turks who tried to destroy the Armenian race in 1915, have now joined the al-Qa’ida-affiliated fighters who attacked the Armenian church. The cross on top of the clock tower was destroyed, to be replaced by the flag of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.

Nor is that all. On 11 November, when the world honoured the dead of the Great War, which did not give the Armenians the state they deserved, a mortar shell fell outside the Holy Translators Armenian National School in Damascus and two other shells fell on school buses. Hovhannes Atokanian and Vanessa Bedros, both Armenian schoolchildren, died. A day later, a bus load of Armenians travelling from Beirut to Aleppo were robbed at gunpoint. Two days later, Kevork Bogasian was killed by a mortar shell in Aleppo. The Armenian death toll in Syria is a mere 65; but I suppose we might make that 1,500,065. More than a hundred Armenians have been kidnapped. The Armenians, of course, like many other Christians in Syria, do not support the revolution against the Assad regime – although they could hardly be called Assad supporters.

Two years from now, they will commemorate the 100th anniversary of their Holocaust. I have met many survivors, all now dead. But the Turkish state, supporting the present revolution in Syria, will be memorialising its victory at Gallipoli that same year, a heroic battle in which Mustafa Kemal Ataturk saved his country from Allied occupation. Armenians also fought in that battle – in the uniform of the Turkish army, of course – but I will wager as many dollars as you want that they will not be remembered in 2015 by the Turkish state which was so soon to destroy their families.

Hitchhikers’ guide to  bad old Iran

While we all bask in the glow of happy relations with Iran, it might be well to read – in four months’ time, unless their publishers have the common sense to bring it forward – a remarkable book by Shane Bauer, Josh Fattal and Sarah Shourd.

They – and you may not remember this – were the hitchhikers who “strayed” into Iran in 2009 from Iraqi Kurdistan. Sarah (pictured below with Shane) was released first and she called me on the phone to talk about her fiancé, Shane, and to ask if The Independent could help secure the two men’s release. We published some of Shane’s journalism – I made a point of telling the Iranian ambassador in Beirut to read it – and, with or without The Independent’s help, they were both released. I was delighted.

They had been arrested during the presidency of the lunatic Ahmadinejad, and it’s clear from their book that they were lured over the border by Iranian frontier guards. One of them eventually emailed Sarah that this was the case. [Ron: Robert Fisk's shill status is obvious when he describes Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as a lunatic. THAT tells you that the rest of this story is also bullshit. Sarah's "story" is just that - a story which almost certainly bears NO relationship to the facts.].

But their incarceration, their vicious solitary confinement – a form of torture if ever there was one – and their relations, not just with their fellow condemned prisoners but with their guards, is a remarkable story.

[Ron: Gosh I'll be glad when journalistic whores like Robert Fisk no longer get to spread their lying opinions in the global media. Even if these Amerikkans "hikers" were not spies, which seems unlikely, Iran had every right to "incarcerate"and interrogate them as USraelis are consrtantly organising terrorists and others to enter Iran to seek to destabilise that nation and replace its govermnent as they did with Mohammad Mossadegh in 1953 and Ayatollah Khomeini in 1979. The same cannot be said of David Hicks, Mandouh Habib, Dr Aafia Siddiqui and thousands of other civilians kidnapped, incarcerated and brutally tortured by the CIA and other Amerikkans in Bagram, Guantanamo, Al Garib and dozens of other sercret prisons around the world].

Sarah quickly worked out, back in freedom, that the US government was not their natural friend; there are some sharp words about the “peacemaker” Dennis Ross.  A good book – which I rarely say – and it’s called A Sliver of Light.  A Fisk read. [Ron: ie a waste of time! More lies in the sea of lies in which we are forced to live.].
