Turkey enraged at Vatican for Pope’s remarks on Armenian Genocide


Uh, Armenians are upset about the jihad slaughter of millions of Armenians. This Islamic denial of their historic bloodlust and their subsequent bullying is pure supremacism. Savage.

Do Muslims expect the sanction of their victims?

The Armenian genocide took place under Turkey’s Islamic Ottoman
Empire, during and after WWI. "Out of an approximate population of two
million, some 1.5 million Armenians died. If early 20th
century Turkey had the apparatuses and technology to execute in
mass—such as 1940s Germany’s gas chambers—the entire Armenian population
may well have been annihilated. Most objective American historians who have studied the question unequivocally agree that it was a deliberate, calculated genocide." (more here)

Turkey has reacted angrily to the Vatican following a statement from
Pope Francis describing the mass killings of Armenians during World War
I as “the first genocide of the twentieth century” during a meeting
with a delegation led by Patriarch of Cilicia of Armenian Catholics on
June 3.

“The Turkish Foreign Ministry delivered Turkey’s views on the issue and expressed disappointment to the embassy in Ankara and Vatican in Rome,” a Turkish diplomat told the Hürriyet Daily News on June 7.

Francis described the mass killings of Armenians during World War I as
“the first genocide of the 20th century” during a meeting with a
delegation led by Patriarch of Cilicia of Armenian Catholics on June 3.

pope met with members of the delegation and when one of them said that
she was a descendant of genocide victims, he replied, “The first
genocide of the 20th Century was that of the Armenians,” reiterating his
earlier recognition of the mass killings as “Armenian Genocide” while
he was the head of the Catholic Church in Buenos Aires as a cardinal.

2006, during events marking the 91st anniversary of the killings in
Buenos Aires, he had urged Turkey to recognize “the genocide” as the
“gravest crime of Ottoman Turkey against the Armenian people and the
entire humanity.”

Commenting on the issue, Armenian Apostolic
Church Diocese of Gougark Bishop Sebouh Chuljyan Primate said, “The pope
is speaking out a historical truth. Turkey needs to see the pains and
should face the genocide,” he told the Hürriyet Daily News, adding that
the archives of the Vatican may be opened to investigate the issue

The director of the Armenian National Committee of
South America, Alfonso Tabakian, explained that this was the first such
statement from the pontiff since being elevated to pope and leader of
the Roman Catholic Church.

Tabakian called the statement “very
important since his words transcend any state or religion,” according to
the Armenian weekly website.
