    The editor should remove at once the comment by Postallian. Irrational and hateful mail will not help our cause more over it is simply not true and does not reflect the professional standards of this paper /web site. Postallian should appreciate our latino brothers in South America who have supported and welcomed hundreds of thousands of Armenians over the last decades. Is this how you return the favour Baron Postallian?

    Does Postallian know how many Armenian Families are related by blood to fully blooded latinos? Dose this make our in-laws sewer people ? Or does this make our off-spring “sewer kids” ? I do not think so.
    The latinos are our neighbours, colleagues ,team mates, customers, patients but moreover they are our friends and are our relatives.
