BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:30 P.M.) – Turkish Vice President Fuat Oktay told a number historians in Ankara, today, that there was no Armenian Genocide that took place in 1915.

Oktay told the gathering of historians that Turkey does not respect the decisions of certain governments that recognize the events from 1915.

“We do not respect the decisions of the parliaments that bow before the Armenian diaspora and ban Turkish views,” Oktay said, as quoted by the Hurriyet Daily.

“Despite all efforts, those who aimed to defame our history by using the events of 1915 did not reach their goals,” Oktay said, stressing that efforts “to smear Turkey have failed.”

“The slander campaigns, which intensified particularly before 2015, have been pushed back with our country’s stance and the efforts of our official institutions, such as the Turkish Historical Society,” he told the 18th Turkish History Congress at the Beştepe National Congress and Culture Center.

Fuat Oktay is like a Fascist WHO claims that Auschwitz never existed. Several international historical societies and committees investigated the Turkish claims of innocence. Those Turkish claims are wrong. Between 1915 and 1923 the Turks “sanitized” the whole Christian population of Anatolia and not just the Armenian’s. p.s. For centuries the Turks have committed genocides on the Balkans. Lead by Sultans and as self elected leaders of the Sunni Muslim Ummah the Turkish send ghazi who created a bad reputation for all Muslims. For centuries Turkish war crimes and genocides were proverbial on all the Balkan and even into South… Read more »

Oh, we should not offend fascists… Just giving them what they deserve : the bullet they’d love to offer us.
I doubt Hitler learnt a lot : most of the shït he spoke about came from Rudolf Hess. And there were serious influences from Muhammad too.
Nazislamism is not new : early Muslim Brotherhood leaders like nefarious Hassan al-Bana (Tariq Ramadan gran-dad) and infamous Hajj Amin al-Husseini (Arafat’s uncle) were already allies to the Nazis.

Buhaha, there was not only an Armenian genocide : Greeks, Assyrians, etc, were genocided too… Enver pasha and his triumvirat did far worst…
Moreover, this wasn’t performed by the late Turkish republic.
The neo-Ottoman empire and EnvErdogan-Pasha seem have problems to admit the crimes of the former Ottoman Empire.

Eternal glory to Hagop Melkoumian and his Red Army Armenian battalion (they punished Enver Pasha), Soghomon Tehlirian (punished Talaat Pasha), Stepan Dzaghigian, Artashes Gevorgyan, and Petros Ter Poghosyan (punished Djemal Pasha).
May the names of Enver, Talaat and Djemal be cursed forever.
