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.
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.
Based on the comments of some readers of my article “Questionable Economic Results Do Not Provide Justification For Signing The Turkey-Armenia Protocols”, Asbarez January 8, I would like to make two clarification.
Dear Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian, Ambassador Tatoul Markarian, General Consul Grigor Hovhannissian, I would like to express my concern regarding the Turkish Armenian protocols.
I write in regard to the recent posting in Asbarez.com and its characterization of my position on the Armenian Genocide and related legislation. While it is certainly true that you are entitled to your own views – and to support those you choose for public office – you are not entitled to your own facts.
In recent years the Azeris have intensified their efforts by publishing propaganda books which fakes the history of the Caucasus region. One such book is “Les Monuments d’Azerbaijan Ouest” The Monuments of Western Azerbaijan by Aziz Alakbarli. By Western Azerbaijan the author means historical Armenia; by Eastern Azerbaijan they mean the present Republic Of Azerbaijan.
I wept when I read “Struggle for the Fate of a Nation” (Asbarez 6/1/09 Allen Yekikian). My father was one of those volunteers who fought in the Battle of Gharakilisé for the salvation of our people.
ver since I read Harut Sassounian’s April 24-25 commentary entitled “Think Tank Report on Armenia: You get What You Pay For” I have been extremely upset and angry. Why and how come we are still such a fair game for the Powers to be? Especially now, that we have a government of Armenia, so to speak.
