The foundation of this blog was cemented by the Assassination of Hrant Dink on 19.01.07. I was listening to Setrak Setrakian’s rendition of Arno Babajanian’s composition, Elegy. So
moved by Hrant’s shortened life by the virtue of speaking his mind that I wrote the poem, ‘Without You’ with Hrant's family in mind. The subject matter of the recognition of the ‘Genocide of the Armenians in 1915,’ is very much at the heart and the minds of Armenian's Internationally.

If you feel it would be appropriate, please include a link to my Blog from your Site. I would like my Blog to be as eclectic as possible and include material from as many and different sources so long as it is relevant to my subject matter.
This well-established Blog is worth visiting on a regular basis for a wealth of information of interest to Armenian nationals and to the Armenian Diaspora world-wide.

By Appo JabarianExecutive Publisher/Managing EditorUSA Armenian Life Magazine
For many decades now, instead of taking the shortest route to settling the Armenian Question fairly and wisely, Turkey has opted for all kinds of deceptive tactics to defraud Armenians of their right to justice regarding the Armenian Genocide; lost homelands in Western Armenia and Cilicia; and illegally confiscated real and personal properties of the victims.
One such practice in deception is the ongoing efforts by Ankara to hold yet another dishonest "dialogue" with "soft" or "sensible" Armenians.
It’s interesting that the timing for the said "outreach" almost always coincides with the days running up to April 24 of a particular year.
This year has been no exception. In a follow-up on the pursuit of this long-standing stratagem, plans
