/PanARMENIAN.Net/ Western journalists are not ready to tell the truth
about the Armenian Genocide of 1915 perpetrated by the Ottoman Empire,
The Independent’s journalist Robert Fisk stated in his lecture at
the American University in Yerevan. He said Turkey managed to thrust
his viewpoint on the world community saying that during Ward War I
Armenians were deported, since they could launch a civil war in the
"After the assassination of Hrant Dink I was reading world
press. Reuters had prepared a material from Trabzon, which included
everything besides the true motivations of that murder. It read about
social causes, that the youth has guns at hand and so forth.
Moreover, The New York Times constantly tells about "good relations
between Armenian and Turks in the Ottoman Empire". Everybody is well
aware that this is not the truth. But nevertheless, what is written
it becomes a viewpoint," Fisk said.
Robert Fisk, a world-famous journalist and writer, author of a book
on the Middle East and correspondent at The Independent, has written a
book entitled "The Great War of Civilizations", where he has devoted a
separate chapter to the Armenian Genocide under "The First Holocaust"
title. In his book Fisk brings historical documents, interviews with
those who have survived massacres of Armenians and settled in Lebanon
and Syria. The book has been already translated into Turkish but has
not come into the market yet.
