They tell us Turkey is changing for the better.
- Turkish Penal Code Article 301 re "insulting Turkishness" remains in force - Ankara not only denies the Genocide, it has intensified its anti-Armenian propaganda campaign - Ankara continues its chock hold on Armenia by blockading that tiny, landlocked country, and demanding that we hand over Armenian Artsakh to usurper Azeris.
TURKISH FOREIGN MINISTRY BLAMES "HOSTILE INTERFERENCE" FROM ARMENIAN PRESSURE GROUPS IN ARGENTINA FOR ERDOGAN'S TRIP CANCELLATION
|BBC Sunday, 30 May 2010 16:06 UK - Mr Erdogan had been due to meet President Cristina Kirchner on Monday. Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has cancelled the Argentina leg of his tour of Latin America.|
It comes after city officials in Buenos Aires called off an event inaugurating a monument to the revered founder of modern Turkey, Mustafa Kemal Ataturk.
The Turkish Foreign Ministry blamed "hostile" interference from Armenian pressure groups in Argentina.
Turkey and Armenia remain in a long-running row over the 1915 mass killing of Armenians by the Ottoman Turks.
Armenian groups want Turkey to recognise the killings as genocide -Argentina is one of several countries to have done so.
President Cristina Kirchner is reported to have telephoned Mr Erdogan to express her understanding of his position, but to explain that the central government could not reverse the city government's decision.
Mr Erdogan had been due to meet Ms Kirchner on Monday but will now travel directly to Chile for the next leg of the tour.

Letters from students learning Armenian
With the end of the Armenian language courses organised by the Ministry of Education and Culture, I would like to take this opportunity to express my sincere thanks to Ministry's department organising these lessons, for the opportunity given to me and others who wished to learn the Armenian language.
Also I'd like to thank the Armenian Representative in the House of Parliament Mr Vartkes Mahdessian and our teacher Mrs Tonia Arajian, without their help we wouldn't have these lessons.
My mother is of Armenian descent and I always wanted to learn my mother's language and get acquainted with Armenian culture to which I partly belong.
Thank you very much, Marlen Shahinian Evstathiou - Nicosia
Having completed the first class of Armenian language lessons at the Adult Education Centre of Ayios Demetrios, ge papakim shnorhavorel arjanabadiv Bedagan Nergayiatsoutsitche, Diar Vartkes Mahdessiane, mer ousoutsitche, Digin Tonia Aradjiane, yev Gertoutian & Mshagouyti Nakhararoutiune ays tasseroun hamar. These classes (the first of many, I hope!) have provided me with a solid foundation to continue and pursue the expansion of my Armenian vocabulary and knowledge of grammar, so as to eventually be able to read and speak more fluent Armenian. Armenian is not only a beautiful and ancient-old language, but is also a "logical" and a very expressive language as well. Our teacher has given us her best to get a grasp of the language, and hopefully the second year of classes will enable us to become more Hayakhos than we are today. At the same time, I have personally tried to promote knowledge of the Gibrahay kaghout amongst my tassengerner, because the language cannot be without the community, as the community should not be without the language. And perhaps the most moving part for me was the vgayagan (diploma) we received in the last lesson! Polorin pari amar!

Dear Gibrahayer subscribers,It is laughable to hear the Government of Turkey describe Monday’s raid by Israeli commandos on the so-called ‘Freedom Flotilla’ in which nine ‘peace activists’, including four Turks, were killed as a “bloody massacre”. If the death of four Turks who set upon the Israeli commandos with knives and clubs, and shot at them after seizing their pistols, is a “bloody massacre”, then the chilling atrocities committed on Armenians by Turks surely amount to the genocide which they are described as but persistently denied by Turkey.
On behalf of Rozana Baghdassarian's family, I would like to extend my thanks to all those who have called, asked about her well-being and assisted her in any way possible.
We are currently waiting for good news from her, after she was urgently ambulanced to Israel, due to serious complications of her condition.
We are all praying for you Rozana.
Louise Aynedjian - firstname.lastname@example.org
Again you are my (this time I should say our) hope.
I know you must be very busy, but I know you will do your best to help us a bunch of old Melkoniantziner.
We are looking desperately for our classmates of 1956 graduates.
We are planning to have a reunion before most of us are gone. The boys and girls of other classes who remember us, the graduates of 1956, are expected to be at the reunion on the Armenian Heritage Cruise from 21-28 January, 2011.

''There is no need to mince words in the face of this atrocity: Israel has committed piracy, barbarism and state terrorism. It has proven that it is a rogue state.'' - look who's talking! Turkey conveniently forgets it's own crimes.
This whole fiasco is for Turkey to make itself look good, it's all premeditated in order to destabilise the region, i wouldn't believe a word coming out of Turkish media or politician on this or any other matter. They have a history of deception, cunning and bullying... not to mention crimes against humanity which they still deny! And if Turkey is so self-righteous about the Israel blockade, why don't they criticise themselves for their own blockade of Armenia.
