Thank you for endorsing the petition Justice Against Violence.
You may have noticed the statement of Armenian intellectuals who responded to the Turkish intellectuals' "I Apologize". It is probably an insignificant step forward during these murky days when there is so much at stake. Naturally, we can't forget the expressions of "friendship and brotherhood" by the Young Turks a century ago. It culminated in the Genocide of the Armenians.
Is the statement of the Armenian Intellectuals a matter of courteousy or looking beyond while remaining vigilant.
I would kindly ask you to have a look at the poll that appears on the right hand side of the home page of www.keghart.com I shall be using the data collected - along others - to write a brief note in Keghart.com touching upon the Turkish intellectuals' on-line statement, the measured response of the Armenian intellectuals, Hrant Dink's message and what we should be looking for.
It is kindly requested that you have a look at the poll and cast your choice if you have not already done so. Similarly have a look at the Statement of the Armenian Intellectuals.
