In NY Times Letter, Artsakh Rep. Responds to Baku’s Propaganda

The New York Times on Thursday published a letter by the Representative of the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic to the US, Robert Avetisyan, who was responding to a letter by Azerbaijan’s Ambassador to the US in the same publication, which perpetuated Baku’s military propaganda.

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

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:

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.

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.
