Armenian Facebook members such as Hrag Pailian have engaged in a campaign to shut down the ability of Turks to form groups on Facebook they object to as in the example below:

Hrag Pailian (University of Toronto) has been Petitioning Anti-Armenian Genocide Groups.
Here's his description of the petition:

This is an official petition aimed at The Facebook administrators to delete and further disallow groups falsifying information by denying the Armenian Genocide and to put a hault to the volumes of racist propoganda that are being spread...it is the same as neo nazi propaganda against the holocaust

Upon entry into this group I urge you to notify your peers of this group's existence, and join us in upholding human rights by petitioning anti-armenian genocide groups AND REPORTING THIS GROUP TO FACEBOOK ADMINISTRATORS...that is the only way we can have these groups removed

Note: This Group Reserves The Right To Delete Any Posts Debating The Genocide...it has not been created to question its existence


The group "Greatest Leader of ALL Time: ATATURK” was shut down twice this week and now Armenians have shut down "Armenian Genocide is a Huge Lie." which was the largest one and targeted by the Armenians. Please help us end this racist harassment and abuse of Facebook by doing the following:

I am writing concerning the group called “Armenian Genocide is a Huge Lie” with 16.000+ Members Recently, Facebook sent the following email to an admin for that group located at : http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=2211373447

Re: Armenian Genocide Huge lie
"Hello, A group that you are an administrator for has been removed because it violated our Terms of Use. Among other things, groups that are hateful, threatening, or obscene are not allowed. We also take down groups that attack an individual or group, or advertise a product or service. Continued misuse of Facebook's features could result in your account being disabled. If you have any questions or concerns, you can visit our FAQ page at http://www.facebook.com/help.php?page=34. The Facebook Team"

Twice this week Facebook shut down another group led by Turks all over the world entitled “Greatest Leader of ALL Time: ATATURK,” which has over 140,000 members. Members who complained were told the group was shut down in error. Now, another Facebook group led by Turks with over 16,000 members called “Armenian Genocide is a Huge Lie” has been shut down, this time for allegedly being “hateful, threatening or obscene.”

Ironically, the only posts to the “Huge Lie” group that have been "hateful, threatening or obscene" since its inception, have almost exclusively been made by Armenians who leave vicious hateful and racist remarks about Turks. Huge Lie Admins are instructed to delete all hateful racist posts as soon as they are identified, including any such post by Turks. Civility is required of all participants.

The only groups on Facebook concerning this historical controversy (Armenian genocide claims) that allow open and free debate are those established by Turks. If you look at groups established by Armenians, you will see they prohibit the expression of views contrary to their own and expel anyone who dares to challenge their opinions.

In contrast, Huge Lie encouraged robust and intellectual civilized debate, often including citations to academic sources. The debates there were, and are, designed to educate and create a dialogue. I challenge you to identify any posts in the Armenian Genocide is a Huge Lie group that are obscene, hateful or that attack an individual or group that have been posted by anyone who is an Admin or plays a leading role in the group.

Then I urge you to look at posts by Armenians such as Lastic Paboudjian (a fake profile as this name translates to “Rubber Shoe” in Turkish), Ardashes Deliveryboyan (another fake profile that relentlessly spammed the group) and Shant Palanjian (a real profile, but someone who initially spammed the group and then settled on posting racist remarks)—three of the most recent Armenian Facebook members to join Huge Lie merely to spam the group, and/or leave obscene and hateful racist posts about Turks.

Turks in charge of the group have patiently dealt with Armenian members like these because the group’s purpose is to engage both sides in civilized dialogue about a highly controversial historical event—this has even extended to encouraging those who first spam the group or leave hateful racist remarks to participate on a more rational level, which surprisingly, some have chosen to do. That is the goal of the Huge Lie group, not to silence people, but to encourage much needed dialogue.

It is abundantly clear that this week Armenians have used Facebook to harass and shut down the ability of Turkish Facebook members to engage in dialogue about any subject Armenians don’t want Turks to discuss.

Indeed, the acts of Armenian Facebook members who have engaged in this campaign are in and of themselves hateful, racist and threatening. The clear message is that Armenians have the power to, and will, shut down the ability of Turks to discuss anything Armenians object to. And, Armenians have used Facebook as their vehicle for that threatening message.

I expect that Facebook will, in a measure of good faith, revive the Huge Lie group and take steps to ensure that this type of blatant racist harassment of Turkic Facebook members and abuse of Facebook will cease.

Thank you for your attention to this matter.

Facebook Stifles Debate
Michael van der Galien on December 8, 2007

It never ceases to amaze me just how dedicated the Armenian lobby is to stifle all debate about the so-called genocide and to ensure that no one ever hears the Turkish side of the story. I have written many articles at the old blog about this so-called genocide, questioning the Armenian claims and pointing out that the Armenian militias themselves killed many tens of thousands of innocent Muslim Turks, all based on an ideology of hatred and Christian supremacy. These aren’t my opinions, they’re well established facts as documented by Bernard Lewis, Andrew Mango, Herbert J. Shaw, Heath Lowry, Norman Stone, Justin McCarthy, and many many more.

The latest move by the lobby - not all Armenians living abroad, but a very passionate and terrorizing few - has been to pressure Facebook into deleting (pro-)Turkish groups. Facebook - more dedicated to please Armenians than to the freedom of speech and historical truth - has decided to give in. Earlier this week the website shut down the Turkish group on Atatürk twice. This group’s name is: “Greatest Leader of ALL Time: Atatürk.”

Before that Facebook shut down the group “Armenian Genocide is a Huge Lie.”

Now, agree or disagree with the Turkish position, stifling debate by forcing a website to close down groups isn’t very American, nor very Democratic. Unlike what the Armenian lobby would like you to believe there are two sides to this story and many experts believe that what happened wasn’t genocide. If we want to find out what happened, we need more debate not less.

The Atatürk group has some 140,000 members. As I understand it, it’s up again, but it seems to be in the constant threat of being shut down. The Armenian Genocide group has 16,000 members. Well, had.

As one of the active members of this group wrote to me in an e-mail, Facebook has shut the group down because it had received complaints that the group was “hateful, threatening or obscene.” The irony is, of course, that the only hateful, threatening and obscene comments were ones left by Armenians. The Turks themselves don’t engage in bigotry. They cite, like I have done, academical sources to back up their claims, whereas the Armenian nationalists rely on hatred, bigotry and disinformation.

If Facebook wants to have any credibility left, it should stop giving in to pressure from Armenian pressure groups.

Here is a link if you want to complain to Facebook for acting unAmerican and undemocratic. For some of my articles on the so-called genocide go here.

The are no doubt getting help from within Facebook. As the administrators of facebook have been reluctant on closing groups that are actually offensive.

There seems to be a priority on these Turkish groups as so it seems.

Let’s not forget this sort of thing has happened before. When an employee of Yahoo.com changed the city of Istanbul to Konstantinopolis on a weather report. Now someone with the same dogmatic character is trying silence Turkish groups across facebook..

How is a group called "Greatest Leader of ALL Time: Ataturk" offensive? Am I missing something.

It seems Facebook operates with a double standard. They shut down the Turkish groups discussing genocide claims because THAT is offensive (as is talking about Ataturk apparently), but the Facebook group called "Criminal Turkey"– that one is A-OK.

Does racism get any more explicit than that?

Sammie: the one called Turkey is a liar isn’t a problem either, seemingly. I saw, indeed, more than one offensive group. But they weren’t Turkish groups, they were Armenian hate groups.

As usual.

O, yes, well, they’re talking about Turks. That’s perfectly fine of course.

And, yes, it is. I hope that many people have contacted Facebook, complained and have returned the favor to the merry Armenian lobbyists.

Note that one group calls itself the Dashnaks: mass murderers of innocent Muslims. That’s the equivalent of Germans calling themselves Nazis.

Once again, wonderful one-sided reporting rules the day here. While to my knowledge Michael has never even stepped foot within the confines of the former "Armenian Genocide is a Huge Lie" (which, whether you think it was genocide or not I think we can all agree chalking up the idea that many innocent Armenians were killed in 1915 to a ‘huge lie’ is inaccurate if not insulting) I debated there for over a year. Yes I even made friends there so I am not demonizing the Turks at the group but to portray this incident as "The irony is, of course, that the only hateful, threatening and obscene comments were ones left by Armenians." is another FoxNews-esque treatment of the situation. I don’t agree with it being shut down but acting like the only hateful people there were the Armenian middle schoolers who’d drop by when you clearly don’t even know anything about it is ridiculous. You also neglect the fact that the pro-Armenian Genocide exists group has come under constant attack from delightful human beings whose facebook names have included wonderful notions like "ArmenianKurd F*cker" and I’ve received quite a few death threats just for being a member. I don’t take those seriously of course but your constant desire to make this out to be a conflict between Armenians (of whom almost all are evil lying people) and Turks (all of whom are virtuous) is juvenile. If you want a serious blog I suggest a more neutral position.

Just because you can pick out one hateful transaction by an Armenian that was found there does not mean there were many unfair assaults on me for being Armenian as well. If you want more information I bet I could even get one of my friends, a Turkish administrator of the late-AGHL, to cooberate my claims of being the victim of Turkish hate at that group on numerous occassions. This is not to say the group was bad and needed to be shut down itself but that hate exists throughout the internet and on both sides and for you to constantly spin this into a bad Armenians vs. good Turks portrayal is laughable and you should recognize that.

Please Paul. Stop the rhetoric. I know what you’re doing, you happily continue to do it on every website that mentions the Armenian so-called genocide. And… I’m objective in so far that those who take an objective look at this can only reach one conclusion: it wasn’t a genocide and the Armenians committed some happy ethnic cleansing of their own.

Which they’re still doing in Azerbeijan (working on article about Armenia’s mistreatment of Muslims there).

And death treats?
- possible
- but I think you’re lying

"Turkish hate" - please. The real bigotry is coming from the Armenian side. I just deleted a comment at the old blog by one Suzan who referred to Turks as "barbarians."

You’ve got a somewhat different style, but it’s very… useful to read how you act.

My experience with the Turkish side of the debate has been such that I believe that if anyone were caught even hinting at a desire to threaten an Armenian they would be disowned. This is not to say that no Turk could make a threat; anyone of any ethnic group could make a threat. But the atmosphere on the Turkish side of the debate is just not an atmosphere in which such an individual could reasonably be expected to originate or thrive.

On the Armenian Side, however, there is a history of terrorism with the "civilian wing" not only failing to distance themselves appropriately and promptly from such conduct but actually, in many instances, supporting it morally or even financially. Furthermore, now that there are online forums it’s easy to see that a not insignificant percentage of the posts from the Armenian side contain hateful references to Turks. I was born and raised in this culture so I know a slur when I see it and no one is going to tell me otherwise. So even if I didn’t know personally Turks who have been threatened ( and it so happens that I do) I wouldn’t have any problem believing that reports of threats coming from the Armenian side are real. The first step to solving a problem is recognizing that the problem exists; the Armenian Community needs to take this first step and take it promptly and decisively.

Clearly, something very wrong is going on at Facebook.

"And death treats?

Real mature. Go ahead and call your commentators a liar. I’ve already heard enough about my alleged misdeeds here, yet you’re the one mistreating me. You seem to trust me, then you should believe me. If you don’t that’s your business but coming out calling me a liar is ridiculous. I’ve gotten them. One said he wished he could come kill my whole family. Another said if I stepped foot in my ancestral village I’d get my "head cut".

One seems to think that someone writing a political blog would be savvy in the ways of the world, but your notion that there’s no hate on the Turkish side but that the Armenian side is just saturated with it is sickening. Sure there’s a lot of hate from some Armenians, but you constantly try to make that a hallmark of Armenian life and seem almost incapable of thinking anything bad about Turks. I’m the one who has been a member of AGHL for a year now, not you, stop telling me what has and hasn’t gone on there and who is and isn’t full of hatred- the answer of which is not everyone at huge lie and not everyone who is Armenian.

And if you want to be reminded of the fact that non-Armenians are capable of hate, just drop by the facebook group "There’s no place for Armenians in the World!" It’s just one of many gems out there to prove there are two sides to your alleged "Only Armenians are capable of hate" fallacy.

LOL Paul. You link to an Azeri facebook thread and act as if its Turkish. Who’s the dishonest one here huh? Perhaps you should point out that the Azeris and Armenians are at war with each other because the Armenians cowardly invaded Azerbeidjan in 1992 and occupy 20% of Azerbeidjani lands since then?

And have driven 1 million Muslims off their homes, and put them into camps.

Perhaps you should mention that?

Yes, you are dishonest. Not a bit. But very, very much.

December 11, 2007 @ 1:44 pm CET

I thought Turks and Azeris were brothers? Does that somehow make it right for Azeris to advocate the mass extinction of the Armenian people and call them all Nazis?
I thought Armenians and Turks fought a civil war according to you in 1915 which Armenians obviously lost. Does that give them the right to be equally as hateful towards Turks because they lost a war? Why is it ok for Azeris to hate Armenians but not ok for Armenians to hate Turks or Azeris? Since when is hate towards an entire people irregardless of individual personalities, views, or differences acceptable? There’s no arguing with you because you stubbornly refuse to see your own double-standards, this is ridiculous.

12
Michael van der Galien
December 11, 2007 @ 1:54 pm CET

O see! Implying that it are the Turks who run the Facebook group is quite alright since Turks and Azeris are both Muslim!

Yeah, that makes sense Paul, if you’re Armenian. Well, if you’re a dishonest Armenian that is.
There’s no arguing with you because you stubbornly refuse to see your own double-standards, this is ridiculous.

I’m truly laughing my ass off. Yes, Paul, I’m very hypocritical, am I not? After all, we’re talking about Turks and Armenians and you quickly focus on Azeris without informing the reader that they are Azeris, instead you pretend they’re Turk!

And - those Azeris have every right to be angry with Armenia. They shouldn’t hate, but they’re right to be angry. Unlike what you and the Armenian government want to make it look like there was not a civil war going on in Azerbeijan. Instead, the Armenian government armed some Armenians in Azerbeijan - as the Russians did during World War I with Armenians living in the Ottoman Empire - and then invaded en masse.

As usual, because Armenia wanted to dominate other peoples and other countries. Just like your rogue state did after World War I when it attacked Azerbeijan and Georgia. Luckily, Armenia lost both wars because they were better at terrorism than war.

Meanwhile, your Armenia is still occupying Azerbeijan - 20% of the country occupied, 1 million Muslims driven from their homes. If my country was for 20% occupied by Germans who then pushed off the Dutch people and would force them to live in camps, you can bet your butt on it that I would be angry with Germans.

Note: this is still going on. Armenia is still occupying lands that aren’t hers.

As the Armenian Church, state and nationalists always want of course. First they want lands in Turkey that aren’t and have never been theirs, then they want lands in Azerbeijan that aren’t and have never been theirs, then they want lands in Georgia that aren’t and have never been theirs, then they want land again from Azerbeijan, lands that aren’t and have never been from Armenia.

"This is ridiculous." - Then don’t comment. Since you do, I’ll simply continue to expose Armenia’s policy today, the strategies and lies of the Armenian lobby, etc.

What we have here is another example of the misleading nature of information provided by the Armenian side. The facebook group "There’s no place for Armenians in the World" is a group of Azeris - not Turks arguing the "genocide" issue. While it’s true that Azeris are ethnically and linguistically related to the Turks, they are a distinct culture living in a separate and distinct country. That country has been involved in a prolonged, bitter War with Armenia and that’s what the facebook group is about.
It’s misleading to cite this facebook group as an example of Turkish Hatred in the "genocide" debate. This is exactly the type of total disregard for the truth that has become such a typical tactic used by the Armenian side. Then when Michael points this out he is accused of insinuating that it’s "right for Azeris to advocate the mass extinction of the Armenian people and call them all Nazis". This is clearly a completely unwarranted, unjustified, and insulting accusation! Unfortunately it is all too typical of the type of tactic being used by the Armenian side against anyone who dares to challenge their lying claims.
We absolutely condemn the hatred visible in that facebook group but again it is related to the war between the Azeris and Armenians - not to the "genocide" debate and the group is clearly labeled as an Azeri group - not Turkish.

December 11, 2007 @ 7:34 pm CET

Well there was a hate group made by Turks as well but I reported it and now it’s gone- I think. It compared Armenians to gnomes and consisted of rants about how evil they were. Most of what we see now is the flavor of the minute which hasn’t gotten around to being deleted yet and is not representative of the complete body of hateful people on any side of any arguement that makes up the internet.
And the photo gallery at Huge Lie itself contains plenty of pictures and slogans which amount to borderline if not completely hateful, and certainly disrespectful, things along with virtriolic comments. I don’t see what I or anyone is trying to prove by any of this- I’m merely trying to point out that there are hateful people on all sides and your notion that only Armenians are hateful on facebook is ridiculous.

Tendency of the Armenians to violence (whether verbal or physical violence) is not new. Note the following facts:The Armenians established outlaw terrorist organizations ASALA, JCAG (Justice Commandos for Armenian Genocide) and ARA (Armenian Revolutionary Army). Because of their activities, 70 people died (39 of whom being innocent Turkish diplomats); 524 people were wounded; 105 were pledged. These organizations performed 208 bombing activities during 1975-1986 also. What did the American Armenians do when Armenian Yanıkyan, who murdered the Turkish diplomats Mehmet Baydar ile Bahadır Demir in Santa Barbara, California and surrendered the police (and inspired the formation of ASALA afterwards) ? The Armenians gathered around the district and SALUTED the murderer!!The Armenian criminal of Orly Airport massacre, Karapetyan, a member of ASALA, who was set free from prison and returned to Armenia in May 2001, was welcomed by the then Armenian prime minister A.Margaryan and the Armenian people who applauded him. A. Margaryan told that he appreciated this hero’s service for his country. Armenian Yerivan municipality provided work and house for him (for a MURDERER). Mourad Topalian who was sentenced to 36 months in prison for complicity in conspiracy to bomb the Turkish mission at the United Nations had previously been the chief of the Armenian National Committee of America. The Armenians firebombed the house of historian Stanford J Shaw just because he declared that ‘Armenian genocide did not occur’, in 1977. Additionally, the Armenians murdered their own Chairman of Assembly Karen Demirciyan and prime minister Vazgen Sarkisyan, in the Armenian parliament building, in 1999.

Excuse me, but have the Turks from Turkey or the Azeris shut down any legitimate blog group at Facebook hosted by Armenians?

That’s the relevant question, not whether people leave nasty messages. There will always be people who don’t exercise good judgment. But, has there ever been an organized effort to silence Armenians’ right to free speech by Turks on Facebook? Clearly there is some effort being exercised to silence Turks and not just on issues relating to genocide claims.

I am member of this facebook group and if Turkish people post bad language it is erased like Armenian bad language. Some bad language posts are put on Wall of Shame discussion-includes Armenians and Turks, many more Armenians than Turks.

Turks don’t try to shut up Armenians at this group. There is free speech for everyone at this group. Armenian groups do not allow free speech to debate genocide claims, they have "shut up and accept policy." It is Armenian 301.

Unfortunately, the uneducated will always root for those who play to their emotions; which the Armenians do so very well. For the layman who will undoubtedly not look into an issue such as the so-called Armenian genocide in depth, their judgments will always be made where emotion > facts.

It truly is sad that a great group like the Ataturk one was deleted with no intensive research of its contents/members for no reason other than the amount of reports it received from the Armenians as being "offensive."

"Well there was a hate group made by Turks as well but I reported it and now it’s gone- I think. It compared Armenians to gnomes and consisted of rants about how evil they were. "

Gnomes, eh? Boy, Michael, these comments are full of gems. At least gnomes is creative, unlike the Armenian standard fare of calling Turks Mongolians, which in any event is inaccurate. So what is it about Mongolians Armenians don’t like anyway? Mongolians live in Mongolia and are Chinese citizens as far as I know.

The real point here is that hate only produces more hate. At some point people have to stop, and if one side tries to stifle debate about a hotly disputed topic and calls people names, they will generate responses in kind.

Remarkably, there are all kinds of names Armenians call Turks, and no one calls them on it for the childish and ridiculous tactic that it is. They call them "denialists," "anti-Armenian" and say that "they are killing Armenians again." All of this just reminds me of the school yard–"you are a denialist!" "no I’m not." "yes you are" "I know you are, but what am I?" ad nauseum. They even run after Congressional representatives who were against H.R. 106 shouting the same things.

It’s just schoolyard bullying, juvenile and ridiculous. It is not academic, does not address the facts or the documents. Yet, it’s a tactic embraced by the Armenian diaspora as a whole. It’s bizarre.

Shut down of Ataturk and Armenian genocide is a Huge Lie group are other indicators how Armenian lies go around the world very easily. You silence one side and let the other side speak. What would you expect! If Turks speak for themselves in any area, I give ten more years fro Armenian lies. Hikmet Sami Türk, who was a former Turkish diplomat, was speaking in a TV programme and he said, "I have been to a lot of alleged Armenian genocide discussions in European countries, we were allowed to speak our thesis once and it was in Belgium. Result: The decision did not happen as Armenians wanted at the end of the meeting and many Europeans left the room with a lot of questions in their minds. But I remember that they all came there to advise Turkey to recognize so-called Armenian Genocide."

Armenian propagandists have been trying for years to shut down Turkish-sided websites in order to show a 1-sided view to the world. Some hosting companies who have Armenian workers will actually shut down these sites because of their nationalistic agenda. While Armenian propaganda sites talk about the horrors of the Armenian Genocide with gruesome pictures and pictures of monuments, Turkish sites usually have articles and content directly debating and disproving the Armenian Genocide Theory. Many sites provide evidence, supporting evidence, and provide a conclusion and the user has to decide whether the conclusion is accurate based on the evidence. I have personally met many people around the world that have later changed their mind about the issue after talking to Turks because he found that the Armenians were less convincing and had no evidence of a genocide.

Nowadays, it seems Armenian propagandists are targeting wikipedia and facebook groups. Many Turkish groups that have no intentions to even attack Armenians have been closed simply because they belong to Turks. Armenians try their best to be administrators at these sites so that they may have the power to continue their nationalistic agenda. They have closed facebook groups that have opposing views to the Armenian Genocide Theory, while groups that support the Armenian Genocide Theory are not removed even though they seem to be a hate fest for Armenians and others who hate Turks.

There are groups such as "Boycott Turkey" in Facebook which claim the Turks not only committed genocide to Armenians but to almost every minority in the planet, apparently Turks are an evil race of monsters. Other groups like "Keep Turkey out of EU" and some of them with racist titles against Turks are still standing. It is extremely funny how the Armenians never think with an open-mind. If they thought with an open-mind they would debate and openly argue the Armenian Genocide Theory, before claiming that it is a "fact". If they were open-minded they wouldn't care about opposing views just like the Turks, because if they are right, what do they have to fear?

What they fear is that average people around the world who are not historians and who have not studied the issue will one day figure out that the Armenians are creating all this hate as a nationalistic goal to force Turkey to pay reparations to poor Armenia, open up the borders, and give land such as their beloved Mountain Ararat back to Armenia. If someone believes this to be an untrue claim, just look at pictures of protests where they hold up signs like "Eastern Turkey IS Western Armenia", or when they make public meetings about how they will "integrate erzurum, van, kars, adana.." and other cities back into Armenian infrastructure and Armenian economy. They haven't even proven the genocide, and yet they are already discussing how they will split the spoils of war.
