* Armenian lobby hits back with the news magazine Time’s help

– Time magazine on Friday released a 52-minute documentary by French
director Laurence Jourdan on the so-called Armenian `genocide.’

With a full-page advertisement by `a coalition of Armenian Groups,’
the DVD also includes a 46-minute interview with Dr. Yves Ternon on
the so-called Armenian `genocide.’ The DVD and the advertisement have
been paid for by Time, according to European Armenian Federation. The
Armenian socities have huge budgets to be spent against the Turkish
interests overseas.

Delighted with Time’s reaction, the Armenian lobby announced that
Michael Elliot, the director of Time International, had said Time had
decided to call the 1915 events a genocide and called on all editors
and correspondents to describe 1915 only as a genocide.

Time’s decision to distribute the DVD came after a CD made by the
Turkish Ankara Chamber of Commerce last year was distributed by Time.
According to the European Armenian Federation, Time decided to
correct this mistake and agreed to financially back and distribute
the documentary.

The distribution of 550,000 copies with the European edition of Time
comes in the wake of the assassination of Turkish-Armenian journalist
Hrant Dink. In addition, while a French bill criminalizing the
rejection of the so-called Armenian genocide is awaiting the Senate

There are serious allegations in the one-page advertisement, which
are considered to be baseless by Ankara.

More than 520.000 Muslims were massacred by the armed Armenian groups
during the First World War and Armenians never accepted the mass

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
