"Still again the hue and cry was raised in Europe and America that the soulless Turk, always the Turk, only the Turk, was the guilty one. Armenian agitators, Armenian jacks-in-office, Armenian revolutionary committees provoking the Turks to retaliate on their offenders in order to force the intervention of the Great powers—these political mischief makers go scot-free while the ever vilified Osmanli is pilloried before the world as a monster of iniquity and a demon incarnate.
The Anatolian halil Halid, who was born and bred in Asia Minor and who spend many years in England, commenting on the matters under consideration, pertinently asks, "Did the humanitarian British public know these? No; it does not care to know anything which might be favorable to the Turks. Have the political journals of this country—Britain—mentioned the facts I have stated? Of course not, because—to speak plainly—they know that in the Armenian pie there were the fingers of some of their own politicians." And those that are well informed know the reason of Britain's attitude toward Turkey, for they know that "since 1829, when the Greeks obtained their independence, England's Near East policy has been remorselessly aimed at the demolition of the Turkish Empire and the destruction of Ottoman sovereignty.
Does France, the first nation of Europe to form an alliance with the sublime Porte, know these things? She does, but, at the present time, it suits her purpose to feign ignorance of them and to follow the policy of England in her dealings with those whom she has professed …
It is also evident that, so long as present conditions persist, sporadic massacres like those provoked by the Armenians in Cilicia and Constantinople are inevitable."
 Pierre Loti tells of a French consul in Asia Minor who barely escaped assassination at the hands of an Armenian agitator who, when questioned regarding his attempt on the life of the functionary, coolly replied: "I did this in order that the turks might be accused of it and in the hope that the French would rise up against them after the murder of their consul."

"An Armenian Revolutionary party is causing great evil and suffering to the ministry work...It is a secret organization managed with great skill and deceit known only in the East. ... they have the strongest hopes of preparing the way for Russia's entrance into Asia Minor to take possession. ... [they] will watch their opportunity to kill Turks and Khurds, will set fire to their villages, and then make their escape into the villages. The enraged Moslems will then rise and fall upon the defenseless Armenians and slaughter them with such barbarities that Russia will enter, in the name of humanity and Christian civilization, to take possession. ... When I denounced the scheme ... [he said Europe] will listen to our cry when it goes up in the shreik of our wives and children.... [this party is of Russian origin]...

Dodd's book is quoting a letter by Cyrus Hamlin published in: The Congregationalist, December 23, 1893; this letter was also quoted in "Foreign Relations of the United States," 1895, Part II, pp. 1415f.
"Armenian Agitation.—the Armenian revolutionists in Constantinople resorted again, in August, to those method of violent agitation which on former occasions brought down summary vengeance upon many of their innocent compatriots; but fortunately the disturbances on this occasion were promptly quelled without resulting in a renewal of massacre. … as if to indicate a hopeful case for those Armenians who seek to forward their appeals for reform by legitimate, instead of violent and anarchistic methods, the sultan conferred upon Mgr. Ormanian, the Armenian patriarch, the special champion of the more moderate faction, the decoration of the grand cordon of the Order of Osmanie. … the sultan had ordered the formation of a travelling commission, consisting of two Mahometans, two Gregorian Armenians, one Catholic Armenian, and one Greek, charged to visit the Armenian vilayets which were the chief sufferers in the late troubles. The commission is to raise subscriptions for rebuilding the Armenian schools, churches, and monasteries destroyed during the disturbances, and also to establishes orphanages. … Severe disturbances were reported in early August from the vilayet of van and neighboring regions on the frontier between Persia and Turkish Armenia. They seem to have been due to Armenian agitators ….."

A widespread Armenian revolutionary conspiracy was therefore organized and subsidized in Russia, and even patronised by the Russian Ambassador at Constantinople. The aims of this most barbarous and wicked plot were made public some time before its denouement. …
A very shrewd and able correspondent of Reuter's Agency, who traveled throughout the Armenian districts of Asia Minor, wrote in March 1894:--The plan of the Armenian revolutionists was to provoke by the atrocities upon Mussulmans such cruelty, atrocity, outrage, butchery that Christian humanity would rise in wrath. It will be the helpless women and children who will suffer most. The revolutionary leaders know that it will be so; in fact, they count upon it as the chief factor in their success.
The same correspondent wrote the remarkable prediction that the 'chief attack will be made in the city of Constantinople itself, and that the brunt of the fighting will be borne by the Armenian residents therein.'
These prophecies, written in March 1894, were literally fulfilled in Sassun in July and August, 1894, and in Constantinople on September 30th, 1895.
…before any real atrocities to any appreciable extent had taken place—cannot be explained merely on the ground of journalistic anxiety to satisfy an unwholesome popular craving. It was the result of a carefully planned and organized propaganda, whose agents were in some cases mercenary, in others innocent through willing victim of deceit. All of the stories and many of the telegrams originally came form the same persons and locality, and from the same organization, viz., from a group of ingenious Armenian conspirators who were mostly inside the Russian frontier, between Karoungan and Tiflis. Some of these conspirators were on Turkish territory in and around Erzeroum itself. …"
