LETTERS: Urge Mass. Gov. Patrick to Drop Judicial Nominee

LETTERS: Urge Mass. Gov. Patrick to Drop Judicial Nominee

Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick has blundered in nominating Joseph S. Berman to be a Superior Court judge. Mr. Berman is a long-time member of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) and has been a National Commissioner of that organization since 2006.

LETTERS: Mirror Mirror On The Wall

LETTERS: Mirror Mirror On The Wall

This year, the Armenian people turned the corner on an outdated tradition in which their voices are not heard, their will is not registered, and their sacrifices are not recognized.

LETTERS: Save an Armenian Gampr

LETTERS: Save an Armenian Gampr

There are many things that come to mind when you think of Armenia – but the Gampr is probably not at the top of your list.

LETTER: No Media Coverage During Presidential Visit

LETTER: No Media Coverage During Presidential Visit

During the period from September 18 to 24 I was anxiously looking at every page of the LA Times to see any article about the 20-th anniversary of Armenia’s independence. Unfortunately there was NOT A .SINGLE WORD ABOUT ARMENIA.

LETTERS: Postal Stamp for Genocide Cenntenial

LETTERS: Postal Stamp for Genocide Cenntenial

With the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide coming up in the year 2015, I thought it would be appropriate for all Armenian organizations and church groups to unite in getting the US Postal Service to issue a US commemorative stamp on the Armenian Genocide of 1915-1923.

LETTER: Kay Mouradian on Medicare Fraud

LETTER: Kay Mouradian on Medicare Fraud

Recently the FBI arrested 52 in an Armenian crime syndicate that stole nearly $160 million in fake claims to Medicare and I could feel my blood beginning to boil…for two reasons:

First, these kinds of actions increase endangering the stability of the Medicare program that is vital in maintaining the health of senior citizens who otherwise could not afford health insurance and second, that Armenians, my brethren, would dare put this kind of a stain on the Armenian community.

LETTER: On the Getty Lawsuit

LETTER: On the Getty Lawsuit

The Western Prelacy of the Armenian Apostolic Church of America filed last week a suit against the J. Paul Getty Museum, claiming the institution illegally bought seven pages from a sacred Bible. As an individual of Armenian descent and an art professional, I feel accountability for input in the case of the Western Prelacy’s claim against the J. Paul Getty Museum.

Schiff and the Genocide

Schiff and the Genocide

I applaud Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Pasadena, with his new campaign to collect and document some of the tragic stories from Armenian genocide survivors who came to America and to include those accounts in the U.S. Congressional Record. For the last 25 years Turkey has continually denied that its intention was to exterminate its Armenian population during World War I and with its well funded lobby has successfully influenced many of our representatives.

LETTER: Obama Recognizes the Armenian Genocide

LETTER:  Obama Recognizes the Armenian Genocide

In a situation where we are insisting on semantic precision from the president, Asbarez Post’s article title “Obama refuses to recognize the Armenian Genocide” is at best erroneous, and quite honestly, hypocritical.

LETTER: Who Benefits from Open Borders?

LETTER: Who Benefits from Open Borders?

When dealing with bad or dangerous choices in making decisions, our elders would say: “Which end of the cane am I supposed to hold when both ends are in filth?” How well does that saying apply to the choices we are faced today for making decisions.

To the Editor: A Shameful Dispute

To the Editor: A Shameful Dispute

The dispute between Diasporan Armenians and the Republic of Armenia about the fate of our homeland and people is shameful and has reached a dangerous level of discourse.

Letter: Upcoming Elections

Letter: Upcoming Elections

I think there’s a tidal wave coming that’s going to engulf the Armenian community in the United States, but don’t worry, it’s not going to drown us, it’s going to lift all our boats. Danny Tarkanian (R) was in Watertown on Sunday evening, December 13, for a fundraiser to support his campaign for the Nevada seat in the U.S. Senate now occupied by Harry Reid (D). Because of his track record and platform, I helped the sponsors.

Letter: Lesson from the Mass. Senate Race

Letter: Lesson from the Mass. Senate Race

I hope that the primary overriding lesson we learn from the election of Scott Brown as the replacement senator from Massachusetts is that the electorate may finally have wised up and decided that, like an uncut melon, an elected official in a new office is an unknown quantity. He looks and acts clean cut, honest and sincere but so does every candidate for office, from class president, sophomore year in high school to country President, USA.
