The following message represents the Turkish official stance regarding Armenian subjects. It is a typical collection of Turkish viewpoints marketed to the average Turkish or foreign readers. Some of the ideas are very old and some have been adjusted to the recent developments, but the spirit remains the same: denial of the Armenian rights.

With Democrats taking control of the U.S. Congress, prospects have increased that lawmakers will approve a resolution recognizing the World War I era killings of Armenians as “genocide” despite the objections of President George W. Bush.
The shift in Congress also dims the likelihood that the Bush administration can break a deadlock over the president's nominee for ambassador to
We, the regular hard-working, tax-paying, and vote-casting Turkish- Americans are wondering if you people were aware of the enormity of the deceptiveness, fraudulent, and unfounded claims displayed in front of your eyes by the Armenian caucus members and by the proponents of the powerful Armenian Lobby in the Congress of the
The constant illusory statements concerning the almost century-old allegations that the Ottoman Turks deliberately perpetrated a vile act of genocide, and ruthlessly attempted to annihilate 'one million and a half 'of their own Armenian citizens is ridiculous. This is a gross prevarication, if not an out and out lie. We, the Turkish- American citizens of this country urge you to consider for one moment the utter impossibility of their statements. Several statistics of Ottoman and foreign origin of that era attest to the fact that the entire living population of the Armenian citizens of the
At that period of 1915, the sum of Armenians living in all provinces of the Empire was recorded as 1,300.000. The census figures of ALL inhabitants of
The alleged genocide mythology with which the Armenians flood the hallowed halls of the U.S. Congress is not only mind-boggling, but it is also a thought-disturbing fact. It represents an accusation which they could neither prove nor justify.
We beseech all of you to please understand that the declaration and the inauguration of the modern
The entire world was inundated by false cries for military help and monetary assistance to be given to these very insurgents fighting against the empire. Instigated by Czar Nicholas II of
It was during this relocation phase of the civil war that many Armenians lost their lives on the front or on their movement to other Turkish provinces. Nevertheless, the Muslim Turkish casualties were four times more than the Armenians'. But the Western news organizations reported only the Armenian casualties while ignoring totally the Turkish side. Fed by the biased false reports provided by the Christian missionaries, the western world, the world at large, and especially Americans read only bogus reports of the most atrocious kind imaginable. These falsifications were emanating from the American Embassy in the Ottoman capital of
The duplicitous Armenians were determined then as they are today that they were, as a human race subject to a deliberate extermination by the Turks. However in contrast to the Jewish people, who perished during a genuine genocide in the middle part of the same 20th century, did not fire a single shot against the Nazi government, whereas the Armenians were recorded by honest historians as having killed more than half a million Turkish men, women, and children in hundreds of Turkish villages, towns, and cities of the Ottoman era. All this came to an end with the proclamation and the inauguration of the
Armenian's totally senseless propaganda is still continuing to this day. Whether they are at a high school or at any American private or state university, the minds of American students are poisoned by Armenian -leaning racist and discriminatory professors' venomous pronouncements in
No person possessing your mental capacity would be in sympathy with the cruel history of the Armenian demolition-plotters called the ASALA either. They are known as the Armenian death machine. Not only did they assassinate methodically 70 innocent Turkish diplomats and their family members between 1973 and 1989, but they have done greater harm than that by wounding the hearts and souls of the proud nation of Turks.
Today, as the 24th day of April approaches, the degree of negative propaganda and misinformation being dispensed by these small but highly vociferous people, known as Armenians, should be at least ignored if not silenced altogether by your colleagues in the Congress of the
The claims of the Armenians do not only falsify Turkish history, but the European and American history, as well. Their outrageous claims are so replete with so many fictitious statements that they can only be described as products of deluded minds.
Unfortunately, unless you the legislative lawmakers move to put a stop to their innumerable phony resolutions, damage will take root.
The truth is on
Thank you for your attention and future positive consideration for
