I forgot to put followings names, sorry for that. -Adile Nasit (The cutest actress of Turkish cinema, we lost her in 1987, Rest in Peace) -Ara Guler (The famous photographer of Turkey. We know Turkey's 1950s,1960,1970s from his shots) -Edgar Manas (The orchestral composer of the Turkish National Anthem) p.s: I am grateful if anyone can translate into Armenian, too.
I have two reasons why I made this video.
1) For diaspora Armenians and the other people to show that Armenians need not Turkish enmity or so-called "Armenian Genocide" to find their identity. Armenianship does not mean Turkish enmity and needn't be watered with the myth of "Armenian Genocide" for generations. These people in the video are all Armenians living in Turkey and have the respect of not only Turkish people but also many other foreign people. They are not the captives of Turkey as the Armenian diaspora claim and they are not marketing the sorrow of Armenians experienced in 1915 as diaspora Armenians do. They have had so big contributions to Turkey, our richness and our variety and we are all thankful to them.
2) My second reason is that I have seen many insultings by Turks to Armenians as a result of the provoking videos and claims prepared by Armenians about the so-called genocide, Turkey and Turkish people. You can get angry with what they do, but that does not give us the right to insult Armenianship or Armenian flag. Nobody can choose her/his ethnic identity when she/he was born. These people in the video are Armenians as well, have you ever thought that you can hurt these people' feelings when you insult on Armenianship or Armenian flag?
Please, be decent and show your justness with your thesis, not by insulting people and their values.
