Turkish Journalist Concerned Over Turkish Official’s Forthcoming Vis


Feb 5 2010

Barcın Yinanc, correspondent of the Referans newspaper (Turkey),
published an article on tension over the RA Constitutional Court/s
verdict between Armenia and Turkey.

The reporter reminds the readers that Ferudin Siniroglu, Advisor to
the Turkish Foreign Office, is to go to Switzerland to present his
country’s concern over the verdict.

The Turkish journalist points out a most interesting fact: denying the
Armenian Genocide is a penal act in Switzerland. Barcın Yinanc’s
version of the Turkish official’s visit is as follows: Ferudin
Siniroglu arrives in Switzerland and asked about the aim of his visit.

He is likely to answer that, according to the RA Constitutional
Court’s verdict, a subcommittee of historians to be formed under the
protocols has no right to discuss the fact of the Armenian Genocide —
this fact is not a topic for discussions for Armenians. The Turkish
side, which holds the opposite opinion, is ready for discussions.

Thousands of Swiss citizens hear Sirinoglu saying that, and a public
prosecutor decides to institute criminal proceedings against him for
denying the Armenian Genocide.

“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
