Dear Mr. Dippies,
We are a group concerned British Turkish citizens, distressed by the contents of your public web site on :
/holocaust_remembrance_2004_-_armenian_genocide.htm which seems to be prepared by an organisation calling themselves the United Human Rights Organisations http://www.unitedhumanrights.org/ (a mischievously close call to the United Nations Human Rights Organisation). . .
Whilst it seems a lop sided story telling of events is carefully choreographed, there is no mention therein that these same alleged victims have murdered 521,000 innocent Turks in that same period; in the midst of preparations for World War 1. Indeed, we would mention with equal force that there is a serious claim of Ottoman Armenian treachery and high treason. Therefore, our objection is to a raw propaganda allowed on your public site, without due concern for the suffering and cold blooded murders of the Turks by these so called genocide victims.. In any event, would it not have been appropriate to seek the story of the Turkish side before your site was prepared? even to check if some of the pictures displayed therein might have been of those Turkish victims instead?
We hope that you shall take appropriate action to redress the grossly unfair action your Council has taken. Equally, we hope that the suffering and the genocide of the Ottoman Turkish side shall be given the same exposure in your site, or reference to both sides shall be removed in total.
Looking forward to your early response.
