Please Tell Us The Truth

AZG Armenian Daily

Everyday, different newspapers present us with different versions of
the talks and negotiations held between the Leaders of our country with
those of Azerbaijan and Turkey, yet most articles are contradicted by
the negotiating parties; every day the Madrid Principles are mentioned
and either refuted or agreed by the reporters , yet no one can tell
us what – exactly – these principles are ; everyday the setting-up
of a joint committee to analyse the documents of the genocide is
reported and criticised, yet the authorities deny that agreement ;
and a map route for the opening of the borders between Armenia and
Turkey is supposed to have been drawn yet no one has seen it and no
one can describe it .

Where is the truth?

Is the Armenian Media reporting rumours and hear-says or is it engaged
in serious journalism , to inform accurately the reader about the
real facts and not using the opportunity to present the political
views of the party who enjoys their support.

Politicians , analysts , scholars , dignitaries , even school teachers
or actors are interviewed and their opinions reported daily and at
great lengths , yet the views of His Holiness , Catholicos Karekin
II , Catholicos of all Armenians , are not made known to the people
of Armenia and its children in the Diaspora.

His Holiness represents the stability and continuity of Armenia ,
the spiritual leadership in decisions of politics and defence and
the ultimate moral sanctuary and comfort whom we need every day in
our lives and more so in cases of war , despair, calamity or crucial
destiny-shaping decisions.

Decisions which have to be taken now when Armenia is at this
cross-roads and which will affect , irrevocably and forever , the lives
of every man , woman and child in our Motherland and its Diaspora.

We want to know.

“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
