Dear Rep. Ocasio-Cortez :
Bahcesehir University Maritime and Global Strategies Center ( BAU MAGS ) is working in the field of international relations. In this context, we are writing to inform you about our research on the Armenian Genocide. Our research clearly shows that the Armenian Diaspora and Armenian lobbies are misleading the world public opinion with rootless tales and by doing so they are vilifying our state and our people across the world. In addition, this persistent vilification by the morphed monopoly of the Armenian Diaspora and Armenian lobbies ignores the voices of approximately 70.000 Armenian Turks, who reside in the Republic of Turkey. In this sense, we are in an endeavour to provide you with the objective facts and elucidate the claims, in order to avert the ongoing vilification.
We follow the latest updates on the recognition of genocide with deep concern. The United States Senate, known for its centuries-old and rooted understanding of the supremacy of law, uses the supposed Armenian Genocide term, let alone its recognition, when it is evident, that the so-called Armenian Genocide is a defamatory and fictitious tale.
However, not only Turkish but also foreign researcher’s studies prove that all of these claims are groundless, and contrary to the misinformation, it was the Armenian rebels who massacred the Turkish population with the aim to eliminate Anatolia from Turks.
During the same period, massacres and genocide of the Turkish population were repeatedly recorded as historical evidence. In the Eastern Anatolian Region, the Turkish massacre happened in the cities of Erzurum, Erzincan, Trabzon, Van, and many others. In the city of Van only, Armenian rebels slaughtered 22,900 Turks. The mass graves of Turks, slaughtered by the Armenian gangs were found in the cities Igdir and Kars. Moreover, an American historian Prof.Justin McCarthy, by introducing the relevant documents on the issue of 1915, denied Armenian claims on genocide. Prof.Justin McCarthy stated that approximately 1 million Turks were murdered, and he, therefore, underlined the fact that it is actually Armenian rebels who attempted genocide against Turks. As a matter of fact, as opposed to the groundless Armenian claims, based on the historical evidence, it is revealed that there was a Turkish genocide in the Eastern Anatolian Region.
According to the reports prepared by the United States of America, it was underlined that “ the claims made by Armenian historians had no factual evidence, and the documents provided are fictitious”. These reports also highlighted the Turkish genocide. The notable examples are the report of 1919, which was prepared by Lieutenant General James Guthrie Harbord, with instructions from the President of the United States of America Woodrow Wilson, as well as in the other report of 1919, brought to light by historian James McCarthy, which was prepared with the directives from the United States Congress by captain Emory H.Niles and Arthur E. Sutherland Jr.
The Republic of Turkey has recurrently made an offer to mutually open the archives and subsequently invited the researchers to examine the documents. However, this offer was denied by the supporters of the so-called Armenian Genocide. With this, it is evident that either there is no document in the archives, which will prove this so-called genocide, or there are documents that will prove the genocide, however, not Armenian but Turkish Genocide.
The historical events of the past should not be changed with the political decision. Neither should the Turkish Nation be defamed by it. We all have a moral value to not intervene in historical events, by changing the truths and facts with the political decision.
