Shahan Natalie
---------------
A Biography
---------------
Shahan Natalie (né Hagop Der Hagopian) was born in 1884, in the village of Husenik, Kharberd province, the only son of the seven-member family, along with four sisters.

He received his primary education in the local Armenian school. More than 300,000 Armenians fell victim during the 1895 to 1897 massacres in Western Armenia. At the beginning of the massacres, his father, mother’s brother, and numerous other relatives were killed. He was separated from his family during the slaughter. Hagop’s life was spared thanks to a neighboring Greek family, who hid him for several days, knowing that he too would be slaughtered. The 11-year-old orphaned wandered for three days before being reunited with the surviving members of his family. He found his mother mourning over his father’s lifeless corpse, which they dragged together and buried under a walnut tree. He would write about this event later, adding, “The living began to bury the dead.” The scene of his mother, prostrate on her husband’s body, left a deep and indelible impression on the young boy’s subconscious and conscious being.

After studying for a year at the famed Euphrates College in Kharberd, together with other orphans, he was sent to the St. James Orphanage in Constantinople, where he did not want to stay, so he himself found an Armenian rug merchant living in New York to adopt him so he cold attend the famed Berberian Academy, which he did the following year, and studied there until 1900. His teacher in the Academy was the noted pedagogue and philosopher, Reteos Berberian, out of respect for whom he chose the latter’s son’s first name, Shahan, as his own (the choice of Natalie as a surname is yet unknown to us). The young Hagop’s love of culture, art, beauty, goodness, and truth and the concept of justice were imprinted in his very being.

In 1901, he returned to his birthplace, where for three years he served on the local school’s teaching staff, at the same time studying the provincial dialect of Kharberd. This philological study earned special honor in Patriarch Izmirlian’s literary competition.

In 1904, in Kharberd, he joined the Armenian Revolutionary Federation, in whose ranks he would serve with true patriotic spirit for a quarter century. The same year, he immigrated to the United States, where for three years he worked as a laborer in a shoe factory. In 1908, after the proclamation of the Ottoman Constitution, he returned home to Husenik, where he remained barely one year. The 1909 massacres of Armenians in Cilicia drove him back into exile in America. From 1910 to 1912, he attended Boston University, where he studied literature, philosophy (particularly Plato), and theatre (particularly Shakespeare).

In 1912, he decided to return home and boarded a ship headed for Turkey. However, during that period the war had erupted in the Balkans and the Turkish passport-bearing Shahan Natalie was ejected from the ship by Greek authorities as a citizen of an enemy nation. His attempts to explain his Armenian identity proved fruitless. He was put aboard a ship leaving for the United States and was deported from the country.

An unwilling returnee to America, he undertook responsible work within the Armenian Revolutionary Federation’s United States district. He became a member of the party’s “Hairenik” monthly editorial staff and was elected a member of the party’s United States Central Committee, participating in the latter’s Executive Body.

During this period, the First World War began, providing the opportunity for the criminal Turk hand to finally and totally exterminate the Armenian people. Receiving the news of the Great Atrocity[1], like all exiles, Shahan Natalie experienced nightmarish moments of anguish and rage. And he, the orphaned boy and vengeful youth, made “his vow” not to leave the Genocide perpetrators unpunished, if the world should choose to ignore their crime.

Shahan Natalie’s doubts became reality after the War. The Ottoman military tribunal convened in Constantinople condemned to death the principal perpetrators who had been extradited to Malta by British authorities. The British placed no value whatsoever on the sentence and secretly released the enemies of Armenians and humanity.

From September 27 to the end of October 1919, the Armenian Revolutionary Federation’s 9th General Congress was convened in Yerevan. Shahan Natalie participated as the United States District delegate. On the Congress agenda was also placed the issue of retribution against those principally responsible for the Great Atrocity. Shahan Natalie experienced here the first serious embitterment of his political life, when some of the delegates deemed this policy wrong, rationalizing that the newly created Armenian Republic needed Turkey’s friendship (such justifications have proliferated today also, within the new Armenian Republic). Contrary to many of the Eastern Armenian delegates’ vociferous objections, it was decided by Armenian force to deem the Armenian nation as reconciled with the Turk monsters. It is assumed that at this meeting the Responsible Body was also organized to realize the work, whose primary motivator, planner and spirit was Shahan Natalie, with Grigor Merjanov as principal collaborator. ARF Bureau members, specifically Simon Vratsian, Ruben Ter Minasian, and Ruben Darbinian, decided to prevent Shahan Natalie’s determined efforts, but Natalie had given the verdict, which was the demand of more than one and a half million victims.

Under the most clandestine circumstances the work of eliminating the Turk executioners was organized and the preliminary steps (surveillance, arms-gathering and transport, etc.) were carried out. A “black list” of marked executioners, contained the names of approximately 200 beasts in human form.

The executioners of the Armenian people were moving freely and boldly in Berlin, Rome, Baku, Tbilisi and other city streets, and still posing a threat as they had regrouped and were planning their next move to finish the work they began and once and for all put an end to the Armenian question with their next target being the Armenian population of Nargorno-Karabagh and then subsequently Armenia, thus realizing their dream of the greater Turkish state. Some among them were enjoying local secret and overt police protection.

For Shahan Natalie, the primary target was the Armenophobe Talaat Pasha, whom Shahan called “Number One.” The mission of felling this animal was entrusted to Soghomon Tehlirian.

In the Beirut-based “Nayiri” weekly, v. 12, nos. 1-6 were published Shahan’s memoirs about Talaat’s assassination. There, Shahan revealed his orders to Tehlirian: “You blow up the skull of the Number 1 nation-murderer and you don’t try to flee. You stand there, your foot on the corpse and surrender to the police, who will come and handcuff you.” Shahan Natalie’s purpose was to turn Soghomon Tehlirian’s trial into the political trial of those responsible for the Great Tragedy, which was realized in part. However, there were those in the ARF leadership, Simon Vratsian in particular, who had two chapters deleted from Tehlirian’s memoirs – before their printing – which dealt with Shahan Natalie’s key role in the assassination of Talaat.

The fruits of Shahan Natalie’s planning mind were successive assassinations as follow:
Talaat Pasha, member of the Ittihadist triumvirate and former prime minister, 15 March 1921, Berlin. Executor, Soghomon Tehlirian.


Pipit Jivanshir Khan, former internal affairs minister of Azerbaijan, rabid pan-Turanian, organizer of Armenian massacres, 18 July 1921, Constantinople. Executor, Misak Torlakian.


Said Halim Pasha, former primer minister, 5 December 1921, Berlin. Organizer, Grigor Merjanov; executor, Arshavir Shiragian.


Behaeddin Shakir Bey, principally responsible organizer and executor of the Ittahadist “Special Committee,” 17 April 1922, Berlin. Executor, Aram Yerganian, who in 1919, Tbilisi, had slain Azeri beasts Ghasik Bekov, and the following year, Sarafov and Khan Khuysk, also in Tbilisi.


Jemal Azmi, Ittihadist Armenophobe chief, 17 April 1922, Berlin. Executive, T.; collaborator, Aram Yerganian.


Jemal Pasha, Ittihadist triumvirate member and defense minister, 25 July 1922, Tbilisi. Executors, decoys, Stepan Dzaghigian and Bedros D. Boghosian; collaborators, Zareh MelikShahnazarian of Artsakh and others.


Enver Pasha, the third member of the triumvirate, was killed in 1922 in Turkmenistan (Central Asia) when he was leading the Basmaji-Hrosakayin -Pan-Turanian movement. It is assumed that the killer of this beast was an Armenian soldier in the Red Army.


Shahan Natalie’s avengers executed also several Armenian spies and traitors, who, by denouncing their kinsmen to Turkish authorities, were responsible for their deaths.




The ARF Bureau was against these assassinations because the Bureau, ousted from the homeland, filled with anti-Soviet addiction, was playing Turkish-spirited politics, which this campaign of assassination hindered. And finally, the Bureau succeeded in silencing the sound of the explosive Armenian bullet. The Bureau, subsequently, when the assassination of Turks proved “profitable” to revitalize party ranks, did not hesitate to credit itself alone for the just assassinations organized by the Armenian Nemesis, Shahan Natalie.

After the Sovietization of Armenia, many of the Armenian Republic’s expatriate revolutionary activists did not hesitate to collaborate with Azeri and Turk Armenophobe activists to regain governmental control. This policy was contrary to Shahan Natalie’s conviction that “Over and above the Turk, the Armenian has no enemy, and Armenian revenge is just and godly.” There were deep dissensions on both sides, but not yet to the point of separation.

In 1924, in Paris, the ARF’s 10th General Congress was convened. The revered Western Armenian delegate, Shahan Natalie, was elected as a new Bureau member, alongside Shavarsh Misakian and the Jewish son-in-laws [their wives were Jews], Ruben Der Minasian and Aram Jamalian. Bureau member Shahan in vain strove to change the party’s Turkish-spirited mindset, but failed, due to the trio’s opposition.

The ultimate collision of these divergent directions became inevitable. In 1925, a group of nationalistic revolutionaries applied to the Bureau to establish relationships with Soviet governments in order to try to find ways of helping the homeland. The leadership delayed the examination and response to this issue.

On 29 December 1926, the ARF Bureau, with four votes in favor and one against (Shahan) decided to join the Promethean Alliance, which declared the Turk as defender of the Caucasian people.

Shahan Natalie’s cup of patience had overflowed. The party’s internal struggle became evident in 1928. From 1920 to 1929, in Paris, “Azadamard” (Freedom Fighter) was published under the editorship of Haig Kntouni and Shahan Natalie. “Azadamard” was the expression of outrage of noble revolutionaries toward the anti-national sentiment of the leadership. Shahan Natalie defined the “Freedom Fighter” movement thus: “In Yerevan in 1919 during the Federation’s 9th General Congress, many monuments were going to be destroyed and statues were to crumble within innocent and clean souls … Before the eyes of the “Freedom Fighters, not only was the Revolutionary Federation being horribly transformed, it was also becoming an accomplice against Armenian Revolution. Not only had the Federation, in the person of its leadership, denied the Federation, but by the boorish expression of its traditional feudalism, it had assumed the right to ally itself with the Turk, to plot against Armenian Revolution.”

To forestall the probable victory of the “Freedom Fighters” at the upcoming 11th General Congress (27 March to 2 May 1929), on the eve of the meeting, the Bureau began a “cleansing campaign.” The first to be “removed”[2] from the party was Bureau member, Shahan Natalie. “Knowingly” (by his definition) having joined the ARF and unjustly separated from it, Shahan Natalie wrote about this: “With Shahan began again that which had begun with Antranig; Bureau member, Shahan, was ‘ousted’” After Shahan were successively ousted Haig Kntouni, Armenian Republic army officer Bagrevandian with his group, Glejian and Tartizian with their partisans, General Smbad, Ferrahian with his group, future “Mardgots” (Bastion)-ists Mgrdich Yeretziants, Levon Mozian, Vazgen Shoushanian, Mesrob Kouyoumjian, Levon Kevonian and many others. As a protest to this “cleansing” by the Bureau, some members of the ARF French Central Committee also resigned.

“Freedom Fight” having ceased publication, the “ousted” revolutionaries of France established “Mardgots” (Bastion), a semi-weekly newspaper, under the editorship of Mesrob Kouyoumjian and Mgrdich Yeritziants. Contrary to popular belief, Shahan Natalie did not establish or leader the “Bastion”-ist movement, because at that time he had returned to America. He learned about the movement from reading the “Mardgots” newspaper and acknowledged this Reconstructionist movement. In issues of “Mardgots” are published Shahan’s analytical articles, “Who Ousts Whom?”, “Mine and Yours”, “Curse, but Listen,” and “I Am Inexperienced.”

Generals Dro and Nzhdeh came to Paris for the purpose of defusing the disunion of the party, but they failed.

Gradually realizing their inability to control the expanding movement, the Bureau relocated its headquarters from Paris to Cairo.

However, the “Bastion”-ist movement was attacked from within. The collaboration of editor Mesrob Kouyoumjian with the Soviet Secret Service was revealed. General Smpad and Shahan Natalie went to Paris to forestall the break-up of the movement. Revolutionaries who had remained loyal to the “Bastion”-ists in 1934 established the “Western Armenian Liberation Alliance” in Paris and began to publish the “Amrots” (Fortress) weekly. “Alliance” members were relentlessly persecuted by Bureau killer bandits and by the Secret Service of foreign countries, which wanted to see the ARF as an anti-Soviet tool in their hands. Shahan Natalie relocated “Amrots” to Athens, where it was published from 1936 to 1937. ARF Bureau-hired hit men arrived there and with their bullets killed many loyal revolutionaries.

The situation in Europe within the environment of impending war and Bureau-ordered assassinations little by little eroded the “Amrots”-ist movement.[3]

At the eve of the Second World War, Shahan returned to America and, embittered toward Armenian political life, he took up community activism within the Armenian General Benevolent Union. From 1943 to 1953, he directed the Armenian General Benevolent Union’s New England District Office Secretariat.[4]

In 1958, for the first time since the Sovietization of Armenia, he visited the homeland, regaining his voice, which had begun to diminish. He experienced spiritual enrichment upon seeing the flowering of Armenia. In Dzaghgadzor, he met schoolchildren at a campground and in them he saw the promise of a new dawn for the Armenian people.

Since the 1960′s, Shahan Natalie lived almost in seclusion. He preferred to be silent rather than to talk, to remain within the confines of his home, rather than to appear in public.

Shahan Natalie has bequeathed us a rich literary legacy. Shahan’s literary talents were refined under the canopy of the Berberian Academy. He wrote verses, short stories, dramatic works, as well as national, political analyses and oratorical pages. He used the noms de plume Nemesis and Shahan (Nemesis was the goddess of “just anger,” [retributive justice], in ancient Greek mythology). In private life he used another alias, John Mahy, which he translated as “the spirit of death.”

Shahan Natalie’s published works include:

He has literary and national-political unpublished works and papers, of which «Թալէաթի Դատաստանը Պերլինի Մէջ» (The Trial of Talaat in Berlin) and his «Յուշեր» (Memoirs) have special significance.

All of Shahan Natalie’s publications (including THE TURKS AND US which the Google translation from Russian Is Available as a draft copy within this post) are out of print and hard to find. The printing facilities of the period, the small print runs, the harassment of being the “sought after” of true patriots, and the Bureau clique have worked their ruin and rendered these books unfindable remnants.

Shahan Natalie did not succeed in celebrating his hundredth birthday. The 99-year-old hero closed his eyes forever on 19 April 1983 in the morning, in his home in Watertown, Massachusetss. The funeral rites took place on 22 April in Watertown, in the St. James Armenian Church, with the Primate of the Armenian Church of North America, Archbishop Torkom Manoogian (presently the Armenian Patriarch of Jerusalem) officiating. After the reading of the eulogies, the body of the tormented hero was laid to rest in the nearby Mount Auburn Cemetery.

[1] On March 23, 1915, one month before the gathering and slaughter of the Armenian intellectuals in Constantinople, S.N. became a citizen of the United States, assuming “John Mahy” as his official name.

[2] This was the contention of the ARF. In fact, Natalie resigned the Bureau and the Federation because of his outrage at the leadership’s decision to strike a pact with Turkey in an attempt to regain possession of the Anatolian lands seized by the Turks.

[3] Shahan Natalie was one of those targeted by the ARF. An unsuccessful attempt was made on his life in Boston, in 1929. In the early years of World War II, rumors of subsequent attempts were spread in an effort to harass and disarm his adherents.

[4] In 1954, the Armenian communities in the United States celebrated the 50th Jubilee of Shahan Natalie’s community activism and literary career.

Background
--------------
Shahan Natalie was a member of the Armenian Revolutionary Federation's Bureau and the principal organizer of Operation Nemesis on behalf of the A.R.F. wherein the Turkish masterminds of the Armenian Genocide were assassinated. He later became a writer on Armenian national philosophy, and notable for his essay, The Turks and Us.

Shahan Natalie was born Hagop der Hagopian in 1884, in the village of Husenik, in the Kharberd province (modern day Elazığ Province) of the Ottoman Empire in Anatolia. He was the only son of a seven-member family, along with four sisters.

He received his primary education in the local Armenian school. At the beginning of the 1895 Hamidian massacres, his father, maternal uncle, and numerous other relatives were killed. Separate from his family during the massacre, Hagop, then 11, was taken in by a neighboring Greek family, who hid him for three days, fearing that he too would be slaughtered. He was later reuinited with the surviving members of his family.

He found his mother over his father's lifeless corpse, which they dragged together and buried under a walnut tree. He would later write about this event, adding, "The living began to bury the dead." The scene of his mother, prostrate on her husband's body, left a deep and indelible impression on the young boy.

He studied for a year at the Euphrates College in Kharberd. Along with other orphans, he was then sent to the St. James Orphanage in Constantinople. There, a wealthy Armenian rug merchant living in New York adopted him. The following year he was admitted to the Berberian Academy, where he studied until 1900.

In 1901, he returned to Kharberd, where for three years he was a teacher at the Armenian school of the St. Varvara Church. In the meantime, he studied the provincial dialect of Kharberd, earning him special honor in Patriarch Izmirlian's literary competition.

In 1904, he joined the Armenian Revolutionary Federation in Kharberd, and immigrated to the United States, where he worked for three years as a laborer in a shoe factory.

In 1908, after the proclamation of the Young Turk Revolution, he returned to his home in Husenik. His stay was short-lived, however, as the 1909 Adana massacre drove him into exile in America.

From 1910 to 1912, Shahan attended Boston University, where he studied literature, philosophy, and theater. In 1912, he decided to return home in the Ottoman Empire, but on his way there, he was sent back to the U.S. when Greek authorities would not let him through, considering him a citizen of an enemy nation.

During this period, the First World War began, providing the opportunity for the criminal Turk hand to finally and totally exterminate the Armenian people. Receiving the news of the Great Atrocity(2), like all exiles, Shahan Natalie experienced nightmarish moments of anguish and rage.

Shahan Natalie's purpose was to turn Soghomon Tehlirian's trial into the political trial of those responsible for the Great Tragedy, which was realized in part. However, there were those in the ARF leadership, Simon Vratsian in particular, who had two chapters deleted from Tehlirian's memoirs - before their printing - which dealt with Shahan Natalie's key role in the assassination of Talaat.


Back in the U.S., Natalie became active within the ranks of the Armenian Revolutionary Federation. He was on the editorial staff of the party's Hairenik newspaper, and was elected to the party's United States Central Committee. He became a United States citizen on March 23, 1915, assuming "John Mahy" as his official name.

Why He Was Expelled From ARF

WHY Sahan Natali was expelled from the ranks of the ARF in 1929 ?




As the head of the MARDGOTSAGAN the NEMESIS group that was planning the assasinations of 200 Turkish high ranking x-Ittihad members... when the ARF were kicked out of Armenian in 1921 they joined the BROMITE committee along side by side Mustafa Kemal

The Bromite committee forced the ARF to stop the assasinations of the x-Ittihad members, and they did, Shahan Natali oppsed the idea and chalenged the Bureau and later was expelled from the ranks of the ARF. Look at the TROSHAG issue of 1929.

After moving to USA, Shahan Natali joined the ranks of AGBU and ADL where he served the Armenian community of NY and Boston till the day he died.

---

The ARF Bureau was against these assassinations because the Bureau, ousted from the homeland, filled with anti-Soviet addiction, was playing Turkish-spirited politics, which this campaign of assassination hindered. And finally, the Bureau succeeded in silencing the sound of the explosive Armenian bullet. The Bureau, subsequently, when the assassination of Turks proved "profitable" to revitalize party ranks, did not hesitate to credit itself alone for the just assassinations organized by the Armenian Nemesis, Shahan Natalie.

After the Sovietization of Armenia, many of the Armenian Republic's expatriate revolutionary activists did not hesitate to collaborate with Azeri and Turk Armenophobe activists to regain governmental control. This policy was contrary to Shahan Natalie's conviction that "Over and above the Turk, the Armenian has no enemy, and Armenian revenge is just and godly." There were deep dissensions on both sides, but not yet to the point of separation.

In 1924, in Paris, the ARF's 10th General Congress was convened. The revered Western Armenian delegate, Shahan Natalie, was elected as a new Bureau member, alongside Shavarsh Misakian and the Jewish son-in-laws [their wives were Jews], Ruben Der Minasian and Aram Jamalian. Bureau member Shahan in vain strove to change the party's Turkish-spirited mindset, but failed, due to the trio's opposition.

The ultimate collision of these divergent directions became inevitable. In 1925, a group of nationalistic revolutionaries applied to the Bureau to establish relationships with Soviet governments in order to try to find ways of helping the homeland. The leadership delayed the examination and response to this issue.

On 29 December 1926, the ARF Bureau, with four votes in favor and one against (Shahan) decided to join the Promethean Alliance, which declared the Turk as defender of the Caucasian people.

Shahan Natalie's cup of patience had overflowed. The party's internal struggle became evident in 1928. From 1920 to 1929, in Paris, "Azadamard" (Freedom Fighter) was published under the editorship of Haig Kntouni and Shahan Natalie. "Azadamard" was the expression of outrage of noble revolutionaries toward the anti-national sentiment of the leadership. Shahan Natalie defined the "Freedom Fighter" movement thus: "In Yerevan in 1919 during the Federation's 9th General Congress, many monuments were going to be destroyed and statues were to crumble within innocent and clean souls ... Before the eyes of the "Freedom Fighters, not only was the Revolutionary Federation being horribly transformed, it was also becoming an accomplice against Armenian Revolution. Not only had the Federation, in the person of its leadership, denied the Federation, but by the boorish expression of its traditional feudalism, it had assumed the right to ally itself with the Turk, to plot against Armenian Revolution."

To forestall the probable victory of the "Freedom Fighters" at the upcoming 11th General Congress (27 March to 2 May 1929), on the eve of the meeting, the Bureau began a "cleansing campaign." The first to be "removed"(3) from the party was Bureau member, Shahan Natalie. "Knowingly" (by his definition) having joined the ARF and unjustly separated from it, Shahan Natalie wrote about this: "With Shahan began again that which had begun with Antranig; Bureau member, Shahan, was 'ousted'" After Shahan were successively ousted Haig Kntouni, Armenian Republic army officer Bagrevandian with his group, Glejian and Tartizian with their partisans, General Smbad, Ferrahian with his group, future "Mardgots" (Bastion)-ists Mgrdich Yeretziants, Levon Mozian, Vazgen Shoushanian, Mesrob Kouyoumjian, Levon Kevonian and many others. As a protest to this "cleansing" by the Bureau, some members of the ARF French Central Committee also resigned.

"Freedom Fight" having ceased publication, the "ousted" revolutionaries of France established "Mardgots" (Bastion), a semi-weekly newspaper, under the editorship of Mesrob Kouyoumjian and Mgrdich Yeritziants. Contrary to popular belief, Shahan Natalie did not establish or leader the "Bastion"-ist movement, because at that time he had returned to America. He learned about the movement from reading the "Mardgots" newspaper and acknowledged this Reconstructionist movement. In issues of "Mardgots" are published Shahan's analytical articles, "Who Ousts Whom?", "Mine and Yours", "Curse, but Listen," and "I Am Inexperienced."

Generals Dro and Nzhdeh came to Paris for the purpose of defusing the disunion of the party, but they failed.

Gradually realizing their inability to control the expanding movement, the Bureau relocated its headquarters from Paris to Cairo.

However, the "Bastion"-ist movement was attacked from within. The collaboration of editor Mesrob Kouyoumjian with the Soviet Secret Service was revealed. General Smpad and Shahan Natalie went to Paris to forestall the break-up of the movement. Revolutionaries who had remained loyal to the "Bastion"-ists in 1934 established the "Western Armenian Liberation Alliance" in Paris and began to publish the "Amrots" (Fortress) weekly. "Alliance" members were relentlessly persecuted by Bureau killer bandits and by the Secret Service of foreign countries, which wanted to see the ARF as an anti-Soviet tool in their hands. Shahan Natalie relocated "Amrots" to Athens, where it was published from 1936 to 1937. ARF Bureau-hired hit men arrived there and with their bullets killed many loyal revolutionaries.

The situation in Europe within the environment of impending war and Bureau-ordered assassinations little by little eroded the "Amrots"-ist movement.(4)

At the eve of the Second World War, Shahan returned to America and, embittered toward Armenian political life, he took up community activism within the Armenian General Benevolent Union. From 1943 to 1953, he directed the Armenian General Benevolent Union's New England District Office Secretariat.(5)

In 1958, for the first time since the Sovietization of Armenia, he visited the homeland, regaining his voice, which had begun to diminish. He experienced spiritual enrichment upon seeing the flowering of Armenia. In Dzaghgadzor, he met schoolchildren at a campground and in them he saw the promise of a new dawn for the Armenian people.
Since the 1960's, Shahan Natalie lived almost in seclusion. He preferred to be silent rather than to talk, to remain within the confines of his home, rather than to appear in public.

CHAGALL NATALIE / Nemesis /

/ 1884, Kharberd - 1983, Boston /


Step name Natalie / Ter-Akopian Hagop / to our great shame, and unfortunately, little or no known simple Armenian. The enlightened part of our people know him mainly as a foreign-Armenian writer and poet, great, I must say. And few know that the operation of "Nemesis" for the destruction of Turkish criminals, the main organizers and perpetrators of genocide, on behalf of the ARF Bureau designed and carried out under his direction that the Soghomon Teyliryanom, Misaki Torlakyanom, Aram Erkanyanom and others stood it was he - Natalie Shagan . Shagan Natalie is one of the brightest and the best political minds of our people, perhaps, the most sensible, and therefore particularly valuable to us. Revenge is not blinded him. Throughout his life, by all available means struggling with the eternal enemy of our - a Turk, he left, perhaps the most sober analysis of our relations with him, his strengths and weaknesses, ruthless and instructive analysis of the causes of our defeat. His work "Turkizm from Ankara to Baku and the Turkish orientation", a great article "The Turks we are. Revaluation", for all his polemic with his comrades to fight and set reminestsentsy, now, can, and partly obsolete, are not only a brilliant example of the Armenian journalistic thought, geopolitical thinking, but utterly relevant as well as during its writing. Our relations with the Turks, by Natalie Shagan, must proceed from the following realities: 1. In order to successfully confront the Turks in carrying out their evil designs, the Armenians should be just as cruel and merciless to him and destroy his enemy as ruthless. For someone who relies on force and violence, can only fall back to the same and even greater force and violence. 2. The Turks were able to become a nation, because over the centuries has consistently and ruthlessly destroyed all those people who stood in their way. 3. We, the Armenians claimed the title of the nation, but did not succeed in creating it, because guided by universal, humanitarian values and could not apply to arms Turk. We have not had the courage or wisdom to destroy their enemies. 4. If the Turks had hoped only on their own strength, we chose to reach out to others, hoping for his release by proxy. It is no wonder that we are always deceived, if need be using for their own purposes. In his knighthood idotskom we were at war with their men, soldiers, as nesmyshlenye children threw stones at their tree to knock down one or two leaves. They killed our women and children - our future, our people. We cut the branches of their tree - it was spreading, and they cut our roots - it dried up

. Step name Natalie is next to the names and Nzhde Draw. His name, his legacy is as sacred to us. In 1961, the year of Shagan Natalie only once visited the Soviet Armenia. His ashes are still in exile. The proposed article was written and published in 1928 in Athens. Translated by the publication of: Natalie Shagan "The Turks we are." Yerevan, the Armenian national movement Publishing, 1992 reissue of her work with "Turkizm from Ankara to Baku and the Turkish orientation" today is an urgent need for strategic interests of the Armenian nation and state.

TURKS AND US (Rare Copy - Draft Only - Translated via Google From Russian and may have errors)

/ Rethink /

I

Everywhere and every hour, in dozens of newspapers, hundreds of meetings we read and hear the same thing: "In all our woes to blame others." Take Russia - even a child in the cradle Lobanovskoye heard: "We need to Armenia without Armenians". And Britain, whose ships can not go on Mount Ararat? And Germany, which for the life of one soldier, the most expensive of the Armenian people ...? But France, Italy, America ...? That - a lie? No! All - true, all true. But it is also true, however, that the cause of our troubles is not the point. None of us - not newspaper editors or party leaders nor the people have not asked our never: "And if there is a tragedy of our Armenians, guilt"? Our complaints against fate, indifference to others without requiring an answer in themselves - this is the greatest tragedy of the Armenian people. ... .... The cornerstone of the Armenian political life - external and internal - is still the idea that all the favorable facts interpreted in our favor, all negative - in favor of the Turks. "I hope that in doing so, we are one. And - this is why all our ills. Turks stupid Armenian-wise, the Turks - the ignorant, the Armenian - is formed, the Turks - an anarchist, an Armenian - artisan, the Turkish poor, Armenian - rich ... to what Turk diplomat, but the Armenian ... - and, consequently. Cypriots lost; and Armenian will to live. The worst crime in our political history has made the man who first uttered this phrase, and so accustomed us to it, which in a different way we look at things already and we can not. Our goal, in spite of our hatred Turks and fair sense of revenge - to show their advantage over us. For the first cause of all our defeats in the underestimation of the enemy, in fact, in recognition of his only weaknesses. The phrase "Know the enemy weaknesses, to know where to strike" is incomplete and often dangerous right . Complete it: "Find out and power behind them." Stop looking at the Turk from the height of the Eiffel Tower, and scoff at the height of its minaret. Eifel - the French, but we must look at the Turkish minaret with a cupola of our half-ruined church to understand that and this height is sufficient to break up the death. evidenced by the bones of our fallen. The Turks, we must look with the Armenian point of view.


II

The war with the Armenians by the Turks was imminent. Our whole history is more than substantiate the validity and the inevitability of our struggle. And we got to fight. And accept that defeat. Admission of defeat does not diminish the heroism of our feed. Why then are we lost? There are whole volumes of explanation to external causes. Russian betrayed us. The British sold. French our weapons and our blood having won Cilicia, then dropped us in front of the unarmed Turkish scimitar. The Italians were armed with the Turks to expel the Greeks from Izmir and burned us with the whole city. Americans lulled us to sweet speeches and exchanged us for a few wells with oil. This is all well known. We will talk about something else. For, in our opinion, not only in this - the reason for our defeat. They played a tragic role, but the first and main reason - to ourselves. What we wanted to achieve in this war? - To be free, to be masters of their work, to live with honor and develop in line with our national values. Do not we first introduced the Turks with the slogans. They have yet to reach its goal of Greeks, Serbs, Bulgarians and Romanians. Turks understood the meaning of the struggle for existence has become a struggle, and its existence as well. No matter which side justice; important is the fact of the struggle. Our history is full of bloody evidence that a victory for justice does not suffice. And from the first day of our struggle, we have only slogans balkantsev - meanwhile you should have been taken - the Armenian. It is true that they had the same enemy - the Turks, but it is also true that they were Greeks, Serbs, Bulgarians, Romanians, we - Armenians, they were in Europe - we are in Asia. We have not considered these two fatal circumstances, and this fact played a crucial role in our defeat. This is not to deny or disparage the role of our freedom fighters, but do not talk about it so as to perpetuate the futility of bloodshed already, and one that has yet to be shed in the struggle for Armenia. However, if our fathers justify their lack of experience, we, their children are far more guilty of that, not only failed to correct their mistake, but instead drove her to the tragedy. This is our first mistake is that our fathers started, we have continued, bringing up the tragedy, and still continue to repeat the same slogans, the same ideas or illiteracy, learned nothing of the rivers of blood, or deliberately instilling false ideas. And we see that for the error in the first place in the answer ourselves, we Armenians. Our second fatal mistake of failing to understand that if the Turks as a result of uprisings and wars of liberation of the Greeks, Serbs, Bulgarians and Romanians have lost vast territories and millions of people, and they learned a lot. And they learned a terrible thing for us, which became their main weapon in the war with us. They realized that the Balkans are in Europe and for all its barbarity and savagery they will not let unruly cut from the root. They lost because they fought with the rebels, with defending and hiding their villages and towns, but (regardless of his desire to even) with no population, not the people. Armenians and Armenia, however, were in Asia, means that not only the front was good for the Turks, but also learning from their defeats, they have changed their strategy and arms control. Knowing that meant a lot to fight and win. If not in our hands was to change the theater of operations, it is in our hands was found with a weapon and an enemy that much would change in our position. And the war began.


III

We repeat: the war was inevitable. We had to fight with their bare hands, teeth, if they wanted to live like human beings. We fought more than a hero, because they wanted to live like human beings. We were worthy of it more than anyone else under the sun. Memory of the fallen in this war is sacred to us, but let's see what and how we fought in that terrible war. Unlike the enemy, the army we had. It is not our fault. Against self-loading rifles and cannons have been shompolnye gun. The best we could get. We had no trained officers, the son of an Armenian, son of stone dzhanfidai was our commander. We had no opportunity to learn. Read now morale that would have had to wait in such a case, so ignorantly deny that the Turks could not wait: delay for them meant the loss of both Armenians and Armenia, and that the Turks knew very well. Not guns, not self-loading rifles and army defeated our feed their shompolnymi guns, no matter how great was their role in this war. Take the newspaper over the past half a century and you read only, to our great sorrow that the Turkish government carved and cut peaceful Armenian peasants, Armenian children and the elderly, it is the people. Forty years we've seen it and fill the world with our lamentations to the fact that the name is associated today with the Armenian nation destroyed by, timid hare, and, at best - to beg the Armenian orphans. Forty years we spent in this nightmare, but do not understand the slogan of a Turk. That is our biggest tragedy, and there's someone else's fault, because we had to anticipate it. Not lost our rifles rifles, and our slogan - Turkey. "Death to Armenians" - is the slogan of a Turk. "The death of Sultan Pasha, the governor, the regime" - that's our motto. Browse through the history of our struggle: Armenian wins out in the war against individuals and even modes. Turks, however, even vanquished as an individual, will always win as a nation. Our mistake, our worst mistake was that we did not see this, we were not at war with the Turk by him and his weapon and it is - a crime against our very physical existence of our people. So we were doomed, regardless of everything and everyone to lose. Because of the impact of the Armenian people, we have answered a blow to the individual Turks. We need to recognize their national and political defeat and our responsibility for this defeat. And stop talking in vain about the armies and guns, for the dead, no matter how holy they either do not reconcile with the fact that the two-legged beasts trample on their graves. Worthless our talents scattered around the world, for their house and belongings - in the hands of robbers. That is the verdict of the world. Could we use the same weapons, and when the Turks killed all Armenians, we could do the same thing, destroying all the Turks indiscriminate sex and age? YES. MAY. Could and should have. All the Pharisees, we say: Either false knighthood: "Fear not, badges, Armenian feed with women is not at war," and cases where the feed hmbapet put to death, raising his hand to the woman and child - posturing. Or could - features, large and small, was more than enough - and kill women and children and the elderly, and unarmed - but did not. A must have - in response to the policy Abdulgamidov, who sought to destroy the Armenian people, not the Armenian rebels. We should have and were obliged to do so. But we have the carnage in Cilicia, in Adana, answered only by hanging a few butchers - is the blood of 20,000 Armenians. Should have and could make it in time of war, wherever could get .. And to get to and Arzrum Erznka. If not in our hands to stop the bloody Bolshevism and our retreat because it is in our hands was not allowed to hit us in the back left in these parts not only the Asker, and old men, women and children. Let no one tell us that there was the Russian government and punish us with death. Yes, individuals can and put to death, but we're talking about people, and people are not punished, but punished the Turks. Those who said that we could not do it, he is guilty and wants to hide his guilt. We will not argue to no avail. We affirm and believe that - could and could on its own. Because we know that could do it in Baku, where the owners were and where we have collected tens of thousands of Turks in the barracks, and - of criminal gentleman! - Was assigned to guard the doors to protect them from Armenian fair retribution. And was saved, saved his life, and they thank stained with blood the streets of Baku 25 000 Armenians. We could, and were required to do so in the occupied Turkish lands to the Turkish nation has been unable to produce Kemal and Kemalism. Could do for themselves, without anyone's participation. But we limited ourselves to just arrest hundreds of scoundrels, and - of criminal naivete! - Handed them over to England, then to forget that she did not spit in our blood, releasing them from Malta, and we - passing it the criminals. Finally, we could, and were required to prevent the emergence of Kemal and Kemalism, when they were sitting in Istanbul, Izmir, Cilicia, and reached for our hands to the depths of the province. And if we did not take advantage of the equitable the weapons the enemy has used against us for forty years and announced Kemal and Kemalism chimera mimicking popugayski Lord Cecil, let's take it and declare that the Lord before we Cecil liability for what the Turks have become stronger and betrayed Izmir fire with all its inhabitants. All of the above does not remove the guilt of the European powers, but only fairly allocates responsibility. You can write - and it is already written - thousands of volumes used to declare that the Turks and beasts, criminals, robbers - it will all be true - but this does not detract from the fact that they are of Armenian-Turkish war came more intelligent, shrewd and farsighted bilee and in terms of national policy and plan, because the Armenians, regardless of external circumstances, it did not know and did not want to use a weapon of victory. We were defeated because they had to endure it.


IV

Only once, once in forty years Armenian massacres showed a real weapon of nation-building. And it was a cleansing of Armenia within its borders, which, whoever that may say, occurred during the Republic of Armenia, only through this action, the Armenians now constitute a majority on the ground that, even a Bolshevik, but as Armenia and the Armenians on it - a nation . In political terms, the nation and the homeland means homogeneous majority population in a particular area. Everything else is essentially no difference. That is why, in our opinion, Armenia Armenization is more important than the proclamation of statehood. Our statement is not belittling or denying the role of the battles of Sarykamish and Sardarapat, but only our belief that the creation of a state cleansing Zangibasara was more important step. It's amazing that we still are afraid to admit it openly, and defiling our loss of the only certainly useful to the nation action. Is not that we were accused and charged so far, even Dashnaks, members of the ruling government party? For all their accusations have one answer: "Read the history of nations." We can say, "Then, then, the Turks are right? Why do we blame them, if we believe their behavior is correct?" We respond to all these thinkers: Yes, the Turks went on the right track creation of the Turkish nation, and all protests, all references to the world and people just laugh cause if the nation can not defend itself. Protested and the Turks, but there was something that happened when we only once came true. And because the Turks are much smarter, much more correct understanding of politics, that's enough to say that our similar steps annoy the Turks. Them in that we learn nothing. This is what we should learn from them to create a nation. Unfortunately, over forty years, only once we have shown that the lesson learned by us is correct. Unfortunately, we do not deepen our knowledge in the field of nation-building. Again, we must state that all our statements are only a cover for sheltering the main thing: we could, but did not want, did not want to do it. We do know that - we could, but do not want to. Sure, all the slogans of the world proletariat faces a clear and blatant desire to create the Turks of the Turkish nation for us - the repetition of past mistakes, the destruction of individuals in response to the massacre of the people, for which we will pay for the slaughter and destruction of the remnants of the Armenians in the future. We who survived these horrors themselves, saw it with my own eyes, at least we should draw from all correct conclusions. To live and survive, we must keep pace with reality, to accept the rules of the game and play by the same way. Death is always the same, no matter how it begins: in bed or in a battle of bullets. Our preaching the Gospel before the Turks did not guarantee us life and only announce our agreement to die peacefully. Before you teach the Turks, we have much to learn from them how to build a nation.


V

Do people die? Yes. History of a witness. All nations that have no homeland, condemned to death because there is no people without a homeland and no country without people. However, with a surprising tenacity in his self-deception of our national leaders, referring to the history list dead people, invariably adding that here we are, by contrast, will not die. The basis for this persistent delusion two provisions: a) that the life of the Armenian people last millennium, and b) of a fixed belief that people can not destroy the force. It is not true and that, and more. Goals of life is not proof of immortality. Our knowledge of killing does not deny the violent death. Will not go down in history: it among the many causes of death for people not very critical - of violent death. Let every Armenian ask myself: if our people died a violent death and dying is today, every day, ezhechesno or not? Today it is no Turkish Armenia, no Armenians in Turkey. Scattered light from the Diaspora, no matter what we write, no matter how tschilis doomed to death. Snooze to stop the empty disputes: our statement does not deny the importance of efforts, but only emphasizes their uselessness. We are starting slowly to understand that all our efforts are useless, that teach the Armenian language Armenian baby, born in France, America or even in Syria, not strength drawer and storage of stone and earth homeland does not mean to make him an Armenian in the political sense of the words. Says American Armenian Armenian to the bone, engaged and living national problems, Dashnaks, the father of a 24-year-old son, received higher education: "All my soul, all the pain I put in the education of his son Armenian, Armenian trained, did everything to make it up patriot. often spoke of his dream: - Gevorg, that's when we go to Armenia ... and that's - I have nothing to do there - somehow he broke me, not letting finish. - I am an American. " I have long thought, with tears in his eyes, if I can persuade him to travel to Armenia, as ..., and, finally, is it true my claim. My son wants to be one hundred percent American, wants to be equal with them, he believes that time spent studying them in Armenian, it could be used more usefully for themselves. He is now generally ceased to speak and read in Armenian, interest in the life of the Armenians. And he does it deliberately. "That's the reality, whether we like it or not. That's how we'll melt away, day after day until it ceased to exist as a people. In France, a little earlier, in Syria, a little later, but the result is the same. What is the difference between America and Turkey? America does not need a scimitar, it has a lot of other ways. And we have become accustomed, made peace with our death, consoled her "peaceful" outcome. Let us not forget that we are reconciled with death. Turkey has no opportunity of America , its culture, but as Americans, Turks have learned well the science of creating a nation. non-existent culture they replace the scimitar, they do not care what they are called "criminals." And we the face of this tragedy continues to assert that it is not dying out, consoled the slogan "the people not destroy. "The fact, however, is that millions of dying out, and no endorsement and our optimism can not change this horrible fact. The desire to live more than enough - we must be able to live, live to master science. It is clear that we are talking about people's lives and homeland, and not the individual, and in this science have accumulated centuries of experience in the Turks and the Turks are much more capable than the new and better at it than we, Armenians, and - if not come down from the old path leading into oblivion again .. We will not explain the reasons - they do not change the facts. We have to learn to see the facts, to see how the Turks created a nation and homeland, and we die as a nation and motherland, it certainly does not raise our fathers, but will give us the will to live. If we find the will to learn from the Turks and this even today in our abilities, we also understand that the reason many foreign intrigues, to do with us other nations - in ourselves. And do not ask for more at every opportunity - why Britain and France to protect the Turkish Cypriots and help. We must finally understand that in politics only to the law and forget about justice. Because, finally, that fairness is a relative concept: it is unfair to us, is valid for others. Bitterly conscious of it to us. bitterly aware that Abdulgamidov, cutting Thousands of people, destroying entire regions, and forcibly forcing us to become Turkish-speaking, that the Young Turks, massacring millions, sequencing their established Turkish nation and proved that fully mastered this science. Yes, we bitterly aware that the 20th century declared that I lived - he must die. And we stand in the front row of those who give life to others at the cost of his death. Every day, every hour we see this motto in action, and all want to understand it. nesmyshlenye As children, we throw stones at the Turkish tree knocking off individual leaves, while they cut the trunk with an ax Armenian. And then declare that the Turks will be lost, and Armenian survive .... Unfortunately, the truth is that people are dying. Yesterday it was the other day - it's our turn. We dying out, not because we are few, but because they have no sense of science to survive. And this is - in our conscience, our own, and not someone else's, fault.


VI

The Turks - the nation or not? Need to be blinded by the idiocy of hatred and revenge, not to recognize that its existence had the same Turkish national identity that now. And, in spite of all our dreams and statistical calculations, the loss of huge territories, the Turks just now become a nation. We must accept that without the artisans, merchants, farmers, the wealth of the Ottoman Empire, Turks, and now cooking in its own juice, rushed to meet Paul and Ankara today more than ever a nation. How? We are all Armenians, we know - what! In the first place and most of all killing, cutting, and then - assimilating minorities. Only yesterday they were trying to dissolve in itself, oturechit, do the Turks in language and psychology. Have achieved little, because the piece was too large and their stomach is not accustomed to digest this. But to deny - is not to see the Turkish-speaking Armenians who have been around, few of which still retain the Armenian spirit, and with most of the lost language of the soul. And now the Turks, armed with knowledge of creating a nation, already shattered bones and inedible before devouring the meat already. And not far is the day when we shall see the eyes of former Armenians, not only speaking, but also think and feel in Turkish. And our efforts? Again, we are like children, throwing stones at someone else's tree, when cut their own. How vain and ridiculous their efforts! Finally, if our efforts to pursue political, national goals, what they are worth when divorced from its roots instead of the Turkish Armenians go to the English, French or German, do not tell and do not feel the Armenians. Should I try for a person to be switched to Turkish, but did not speak Armenian. Revenge for the sake of revenge is valuable to us. But we can not even compensate for the loss of language that holy feeling. Not clear that French-speaking or English-speaking Armenian something worse, or Turkish-speaking luchsche. We do not think anyone will return to the Armenian language Armenian after 10 years of living in France. And we've already come to terms with it. Instinctively feel that resistance is futile. Most of its budget to allocate Turkish internal affairs, ie, the creation of the nation, which means the grave for all others. Armenians spend their minuscule to what you want, but do not dig the trench for a simple self-defense. Could we, the Turkish Armenians, yesterday, even without the state becoming a nation relying on our strength, our land and stones? Yes, a thousand times - yes! Can we strive to do so even today? Yes, but only as long as vividly generation that had experienced the blood and carnage, yet still holds its ground and stone .. Here's what we do not understand do not understand, and the worst - do not want to understand. Fortunately, there are still a handful of Armenians living in the life-giving earth, and draws from it his strength. And do not care what color the land, which is called today Armenia, it is enough that her Armenians live. Language is distorted, and manners - disfigured, color - strange ... and yet it is the only place where even the Armenian-offender is the political value. How can you deny that even the Turks - the criminal, Ambala, is a citizen of his country and of great political value, than in foreign lands adjoin the talented Armenian. That is why only this part of our nation can be considered as a nation. And what do we see there? - Same! What talk of brotherhood and friendship which tremulous, the Turkish-Armenian amsheriystvo ..!. Yes, it stops revenge and bloodshed. Turk - an Armenian brother! ... You have to be a little diplomat, to not even show the mind, to pretend the other, to deceive the Turk. The first - perverted minds. Second - politics. And most importantly - believe, believe ourselves that the smarter, smarter, more inventive, more diplomatic, politic Turks that they could trick him. And this is also to blame others?

Can Turkish-Armenian friendship? Today - NO! Approver or otherwise does not know who the Turks, or did not know who he is. Or rather, does not know either one or the other. To our misfortune, the Armenians are many who, naively hoping to deceive the Turks, think and act accordingly. If for the Armenian Bolsheviks had no other fault, the mere fact that they are united with the Turks, to the elbow stained their hands and today the Armenian blood in the name of friendship with the Turks destroy the nation, enough so that their crime was not forgiven. The belief that friendship with the Turks, save us, hope this friendship to deceive the Turks - a new crime, but it will be payback for the death of our people. Not only the Armenian Bolsheviks advocated for this friendship. From politicians and believe themselves to be very different coloring from the clerics to Dashnaktsakans, and not just from them alone, in various places, from the K-field to the America we hear that they consider themselves to be big-time diplomacy and cunning than Turks large, and hope to beat them. Between the Bolsheviks and these figures there is no fundamental difference, except that the Bolsheviks might say: "The consequences of this policy, we will test themselves with the Armenian people as live in one country." However, we should not interest transferred or future troubles or problems of one or more persons, especially those who have not seen, but clearly sees the light of Turkish scimitar above his head, and good, if limited to one massacre. Unfortunately, the fact that such people are often able to escape retribution, paying the same always and inevitably people. It is our belief that those who pin their hopes to the Turkish-Armenian friendship, consciously or otherwise, are the enemies of the Armenians. The responsibility for the inevitable carnage that sooner or later this will be followed, shall we, Armenians, regardless of external forces. Armenian Bolshevik so excited, "comrade" Kemalist, he did not see who warmed to his chest. He's a friend Turkish proletarians, which considers a victim of the class enemy. He's a friend Kemal, in a political sense, although it believes its class-alien and endeavor to deceive him. What people think foreign Armenians supporting this policy? In terms of ideological, in fact, they have the same beliefs about the Turkish proletariat. However, they are afraid to utter the name of a Turk, ostensibly protecting the interests of the proletariat. That fear is enough to prove that these people can not speak for those who know the Turks. In terms of policy they have the same aspiration - to deceive the Turks. But they are afraid to call again avoid the Turk in his name and hide under the guise of "Committee of the Caucasian peoples." Know that this is - Kemalist committee and is charged at him the same man-eaters, armenoedy that in public, fraternizing with the Bolsheviks, and behind them are secret negotiations with their opponents. Consequently, neither in principle nor in the mode of action no difference between them. The difference between us and them: we do not believe in friendship with the Turks, and do not claim to be able to deceive them. Consequently, these and other enemies, we believe the Armenians. Just one act of blatant arrogance, and others - under the mask of cowardice. Dare to ask: If the Turkish-Armenian friendship can save lives and give him an Armenian world, it is already more than realized by the Bolsheviks, officially, at the state level and endorsed by the Russian press. Why do I need one more attempt in a different direction? In order to give the Turks even more assurance of our sincerity, or for treatment in the same faith? In reality, however, is much worse. The Bolsheviks take Turkish friendship - with Armenia under Russian protection. Nebolsheviki accept Turkish friendship - with Armenia under Turkish auspices. The words "Caucasian peoples" invented only to deceive the Armenians. According to these nebolshevikov, Turks are more sincere in his friendship with Armenians, than Russian. rather, less mendacious than the Russian. So, tomorrow, in the gentle arms of Armenia Turkish friendship will be more peaceful and prosperous than it is today. So, at least, as a response to fraud in the form of "Peoples of the Caucasus", which tomorrow and Dagestani Azerbaijani Turks and the Georgians will be more to protect Armenia - in the name of the Turkish friendship. Or - yes, or - no!. And we, that is very good, a hundred times better, every drop of our blood, at the genetic level, know what the Turks declare publicly, openly, that there is no Turkish-Armenian friendship, no, no and can not be! No, because if it would bring an Armenian life, the Turks will - death. This is not the Turks, we should learn. And totally unnatural to someone in the name of any friendship chose death to live the other, even more so - the enemies. If this friendship is life giving to the Turks, it is fatal to us, Armenians. Here is the truth that we learned at the cost of our yesterday's and today's death agony, the Turks have learned, the truth that the architects of the Turkish-Armenian friendship today do not understand, and tomorrow will understand the price of the final destruction of the Armenians. We are absolutely convinced that the Turkish-Armenian friendship, whether in the Bolshevik, Bolshevik is understood, will become a hell for the Armenians. Moreover, we shout in the face of this treacherous for our people illiterate, that the Armenian Bolsheviks - Agents Turks hide his shameless face of a red mask; nebolshevik same anti-Bolsheviks, or Armenian - conductor and advocate the same policy, except that the cowardly cover your head with a handkerchief Caucasian. They do so consciously or not - is not fundamentally change. Crimes, past and future, under the cover of this policy has no justification. Even Armenian sages engaged in unraveling knots Armenian-Turkish relations, but only now have begun to notice with horror a network woven by the Turks during these 50 years, and hide their heads in the sand not to see her lethal for us. And Vanity deceive the Turks beat them in the diplomatic field, with behind the terrible Armenian political illiteracy could only call laughing, had they not been so diabolically disastrous for us with their consequences. And nakinets, the last thing: why do not we give up these claims and do not accept the fact that the Turks in the political arena far ahead? None of our guilt, is nothing to be ashamed of us. Should be ashamed that they themselves deceive ourselves. Policy science is much more subtle than all the others, its universities - public life. Putting century who studied at the university and has experienced all the blood more ignorant than the Turks and Armenians trying to outdo him in this regard we are like the illiterate shepherd, who gives lessons etymology of the diploma linguist. If we still do not understand that the village head Turks are more skilled and well versed in politics than the largest Armenian diplomats have been because the public thought of him flesh and blood, regardless of him, when we finally stop blaming for our backwardness and ignorance on the other, if we even realize it today, we will understand a very important thing for us: the lessons we have shed blood for centuries. And those lessons even to some extent make up for not depending on us the lack of diplomacy. And the consequence will be that of friendship, we will see a Turk our certain death, that we will avoid this friendship, and the only reliable signs which would be the chain on our hands raised over our heads, ax and a zoo cage, that finally we will have to look for way to survive until they gain control of the art of politics at last. Armenians can to experiment with different peoples policy, even if always be deceived, to anyone, but not with the Turk. From the first we, burning from its mistakes, further into the great wisdom - the more we rely on others, the less we shall have the right to their responsibility for the us, the less we hope - the more we will have this right. Turk also brings us nothing but death.


VIII

Without denying any guilt at all strange, or their responsibility for our tragedy, twice, thrice repeat, the more we connect their hopes with others' uncles, whoever they were, the less we have the right to talk about liability, and vice versa. In understanding this very important principle of the Turks were much smarter than us, Armenians. In applying this principle - one of the main reasons for their victory and our defeat. Because this principle, regardless of everything, not only did the Turks are of value in the eyes of the outside world, but also made possible the birth of his unborn Mustafa Kemal. Is it possible to ever compare even the greatest tragedy of the Turks from the smallest of our tragedy? Nevertheless, the fact that they were able to produce Mustafa Kemal, who created the Turkish nation - a fact. We are not at all doubt the fruitfulness of the life-giving womb of the Armenian people, because it would question not only the negation of life-giving and purifying power of suffering, but also a denial of life of our heroes, who would have done honor to any nation. Andranik was never a hero in less than Kemal. And yet, when one made a Qadi, a saint, another we, Armenians, unable to assess even a tenth of its merits. Revered, showed to his grave in keeping with his greatness deserves, but we did not notice that it proved more backwardness and criminal Armenian. Andranik not dead, it's we killed him. This tells us the coffin with his ashes, but our desire to create a nation been so blind and deaf that we have not seen and not heard him. Say more: Andranik himself, in turn, as an Armenian, I realized that he would be killed in the day when a soldier shot her for the destruction of the Turks, at that time, as Kemalists decorated chest winning his soldiers massacred Armenian women and children . Retribution for violating the law is inevitable. And in his comprehension of the Armenian Turk behind as well as from A. Kemal. No matter how great may be the responsibility and the machinations of others, no matter how fruitful was the Armenian womb, we had to lose and lost because they did not understand the law. We were afraid that others - strangers and call us animals. The Turk was not afraid of this definition, which knows the price is good. We prayed constantly repeated: "All who take the sword shall perish by the sword." Turks welcomed his God and his sword drawn, from which flowed the Armenian blood. Continue on ... All this - the expression of our perception or misunderstanding LAW. What we do today, though now we understand this law? We repeat that yesterday was the cause of our defeat. In the eternal hope of another of his uncle, we only cry when it turns out that he does not want to forget their pain and gain, suffer with us, our sorrow for the pain and gain. Yes, they have a lot of guilt in front of us. Yes, they are, regardless of our strengths and opportunities related to us by a thousand ties. But the stranger is always an outsider, he is not Armenian. He really looks at things and is willing to pay for them as much as they stand. No wonder, and resent the fact that they gave the Turks and give Lausanne to Geneva, and to us - a penny. Yes, we now stand so much, and therefore must accept at least today, that regardless of any external speculation, we as a commodity in the political market, failed to appoint a real price. Understanding this does not deny payment of the powerful, but only lip line and a bit rough demo of our own values assigned to us by the price itself. How many could we have done but did not even appreciate that in the eyes of the powerful according to our suffering. Who kept us by the hand, not allowing to punish the murderers? Who has weakened our spirit without giving avenge our blood shed? Lied to all those who point to external causes. Cheaters all those nods to the other. WE, WE, and only we cut off our hands, our spirits are humiliated and were just middlemen for the sale of Armenian blood, and now we go from house to house, letting out cries of mercy and asking for a charity. We have become beggars beggar-refugees in all countries of the world. This is our price. And most do not give us much we did not cry. We lament that in our bones, scattered in the sands of the desert, give no more than the cost of the sand. We are offended that the snake crawling in the desert, is more expensive in their eyes that give beast for at least the price of his skin. Pay the seller, not a beggar with tearful eyes looking at this auction. What makes us different today from this beggar? Would we be today the inhabitants of this cemetery, though savage and flown into a rage with us would think we would bid. Or we could be? Could, but did not want to, because no sense of brutal law: that we were not supposed to be Turks. Can not find today. Still waiting for that other, others will appreciate us more than we value ourselves. And the only console themselves with that one day the Turks would be in our position. Yes, the day when the Turks down to our level, give him as much. Of course, this is for us to hope. But hope is not saved. The most important thing is that we hope to implement this and whether we have the right to wait until others do it for us? Turks are very well aware of the rules of the trade and costly requests for themselves. Each time the first signs of crisis, the weakening of their position or failures he makes on the sale of a diamond crown, a jug of gold or well with oil. And we know that he will sell it with great profits for yourself. And we are again in the role of a beggar with her tearful request, because it failed to chop off the hand of the merchant in the eyes of the world and sold well to burn the oil. It is true that a lot of buyers, and how many wells. But even a single action has a value, a sign of understanding of the law, and this understanding we should deepen that must find a buyer - if there is a seller, must, therefore, that there was no salesman. The seller, the Turks, but, unfortunately, exist. It is because we let this happen. The fact that we were obliged to do, we have left to do someone else's, themes, and satisfied. What we did yesterday, so act today. Were defeated yesterday, will have to be defeated tomorrow. Because we have so much standing.


IX

Therefore, we have become today's wandering tribe, the Turks - in the nation. So today the Turks to spare us a piece of the tent, and a piece of bread and he has few seats in the Palais des Nations, Geneva. Want it any other way? The Turks know the law and knew that this would happen. They were right. And no one and nothing can change that law. Some of us, ignoramuses and disgusting cowards and did not realize taught respectful reception of representatives rushti / Kurdish tribe / in Geneva during the massacre of Kurds in the sepulchral silence during the massacres of the Armenian. Once again I repeat: we do not deny nor the machinations of others, or our hopes for their assistance, but only emphasize the fact of Armenian literacy, then, that we still do not understand that everything connected with us in the first place we should be concerned, all this we are responsible. The Kurds have understood it. Incidentally, a word of the Kurds as an alien. The Kurds, in our opinion, is as foreign to us, like everyone else. Yes, they cut the same scimitar, they have the same pain, and that advantage now tomorrow they will inevitably lead to our destruction and the need for war with us. The future will prove us right, if you will live and see. Their neighborhood and community tragedy does not negate their foreignness. Foreignness at least to the extent that they did not die for our struggle. Just like everyone else. Kurd fighting, killing and dying for their freedom. What we are entitled to expect from the Kurds and their struggle of what to expect and have not received from a Russian, an Englishman, a Frenchman? What we have right tomorrow, after winning the Kurds hope to get them to our desired? If the Kurds would be free, and it will happen sooner or later, the first thing it must be for the freedom of himself, because he thinks himself worthy of freedom. On the first day after the goal - we should have a good grasp this - he will forget us, will try to turn us into the Kurds, and neither our preaching nor our teachings will not help, because he sees a nation formed and how they survive. Our only consolation will again be something that will be destroyed by the Turks and more taken away from them more territory. By itself, this is a positive fact, but he did not give us. Only enjoy someone else's victories particularly unworthy for us, Armenians, as does finding the right. What is bad and destructive for the Turks, horoshop for us anyway. Loss of Mesopotamia to benefit us, as well as Syria. As well as the loss of Kurdistan. Well all that is the collapse of Turkey, but this is our salvation. The most terrible will happen if nedezhde the harm caused by other Turks - the British, the Italians or the Kurds, we do not do what we can do. And we can do many, many, independently of all others who can and will do everything possible without our help, not our desires and teachings. Because they are smarter than us and know that we do for them is just as strange and alien - is always a stranger. Finally, apart from the iron laws of politics is a mysterious and sacred spiritual condition. Can we talk about the courage of those who their revenge for the millions of martyrs to satisfy Kurdish victory or someone else? Glad to see the enemy defeated, but throw the enemy with his own hand - that's higher spiritual satisfaction, which is called the courage of the spirit. There is no doubt that tomorrow we will be deceived and Kurds as well as to all appearances, they were smarter and better educated us in building the nation. The very fact that the Kurds were treated with the Turks as they once treated us, and treated with the Kurds, killing their women and children and destroying their villages and cities is enough to give advantage illiterate Kurdish highlanders and believe in success its liberation struggle. We are also applying for training the Kurds themselves have much to learn from them. In our opinion, have no right to claim any more, get more, even from a Kurd, all those who hope to obtain from him the right to political and national life .. The only one who will never betray you - you yourself, your strength .. The deeper this conviction, the less likely a betrayal of an outsider. And nothing - no small number, no weakness can not shake this Act. Is not life itself says that this is the law, even within our means, we understand less, not only Turks, but even the Kurds.

The difference between us and the Turks underlined by the fact that when we speak - they operate. The most unfortunate fact that speaking and writing became for us a self-sustaining employment. To prevent all disputes in advance on this subject, for example, never denied that and do not deny the force of a speech platform, and the printed word. To each his own place. But we are missing something very important: that the pen and it derives its strength in his right hand. That's what the Turks have learned and use much better than us, Armenians. And if we add to this the fact that the people living life of the state and the revolutionary people aspiring for liberation, these methods are fundamentally different, then become meaningless objections, that the Turks have more opportunities for our own, and even more pronounced will be the futility of our scribbling and our speeches. How many years have we cry and shout: we were deceived. Armenia promised not kept his word. They promised a national homeland - had been deceived. Arman question turned into a refugee problem. Even the Russian steppes to our regret. Nansen program was considered too. Argentina offer. Send to Peru. Liars, scoundrels ... I ask all who read it? Who will understand, even if it reads? If even understand who does not ridicule us for it? If all this is written for the Armenians, Armenians, and as everybody knows. And all the screaming and crying will not change anything. If we did this to show everyone what we have learned that this was the price paid for our ignorance, then it would make sense. If all of this we have learned a rigorous and merciless sentence ourselves - that we are more and hope for themselves just yourself - then our media would justify its existence. We are forced to wash the bloody tears, and we try to keep others wiped our tears, claiming that these other liars, scoundrels and rogues and never utrut our tears. Turks drown us in our blood, and then begin to justify their behavior, convinced that in politics the truth is on the side of the one who first makes and then just hold up. Enough. It's a shame. One bullet louder than a thousand editorials and speeches., Refusing to act, on the case, we are reconciled with his death. A single shot to the head of the criminal Muhtar Bey much convincing and compelling would have decided in Lausanne in our favor and it would cost thousands more pamphlets, written during these decades.

We have not yet realized that aside from making his state the Turks pursue the real goal of total annihilation of the Armenians in Turkey, that one man, one Muhtar Bey may one day bring to naught all our years of effort. If 150 000 Armenians can not speak the language of one bullet, then our blood is worth only the coin. Let him at least once and Armenians would be a criminal, let him become a barbarian and a beast. Why we still do not understand that a criminal and a murderer better than a homeless bum? Their blood is not exchanged, they are treated with dignity and respect. Or are we in a false crying and complaints of our position, or we do not understand it. Who have nothing to lose and nothing to be afraid of and. Armenian has nothing to lose. But unfortunately, we are still afraid. And while this is so, we'll cry or weep, we will send in Peru and even further, because we deserve it because they are self appointed such a price.


XI

Even this fleeting sketch of the facts sufficient to identify and highlight our responsibility for what happened to us, he never denied, however, and the responsibility of others, and, most importantly, shows us the danger of obsolescence and future use of the already rusty, though rendered a their service weapons, whose use at the time when misconduct has been, now - a crime. We want to state publicly that in our inevitable war for existence, a war with the Turkish criminal seeking to destroy our nation to a man, we, Armenians, and become unwitting accomplices to the crime, if we cling to old methods of struggle, and our leaders - conscious accomplices, if they continue to stay with outdated weapons and useless methods of struggle. Our old weapons - pevolver, bomb, although it may still be useful at times, hopelessly out of date. Our old methods - a hope for other nations, peoples, or insurgents, no matter how useful in the fight against our greatest enemy and the present - a Turk, was and will always be alien, so - do not cease to disappoint and betray us. We repeat that this does not imply impairing or nullifying their greater or lesser value, and said to only that we stop hoping for whoever it was and took his war of their own means, always situated at hand and so fail-proof, so we not talking and thinking about the war, because if you have not yet thought of - committing a crime and acted. Terrible plan mortal enemy, and our battle with him did not prove that there is no hope for the struggle and even pobedu.Tak announce those who are either in fear of sitting with folded hands in prayer and waiting for death, or feed us with new slogans and policies do not irritate not resist the enemy in the hope of his mercy. But just as we are not afraid to speak out about our struggle, and not afraid to declare that the Armenian people have already gone through that point, after which has the full right to use the words of Cardinal Mercier, Belgium: "Once during the war right Armenians have been crushed, no one dares to accuse them of is that they all despise the people of this right. " We must accept also that all those false philosophising, which only mask the idleness and false warnings and fears reveal our weapon. Declare that Armenians have the right to use all available weapons and shout it in the face of the world does not mean its demonstration. Accept and even to declare the Armenian people, nor that the Armenian army, no guns, no planes can not beat the Turk does not mean to give the Turks the mystery of our weapons, and thus empower their knowledge of Armenian, weaknesses, strengths of the enemy, forbid him to waste his strength in empty, and mobilize them to create such weapons, which makes up for our shortcomings. So, no matter how sweet was the picture of our heart and mission of the Armenian planes bombing their nests Enkyuri crime, we must recognize that it is not important and not the main means and the weapons we have. We have no planes, and planes would be - no airports, airfields would be - a Turkish aircraft bomb them enough for all our beautiful dreams soared into the air. I say this so that we soberly assess their strength and used them in time and place. Glory to the human mind and the power of science. Why are we afraid, and fear alone, we, the Armenians, to invent, develop and use such weapons if the whole world is now busy with it? How much worth all the screaming and moaning of the world since the first "inhumane" gas attack the Germans? The Germans lack their strength up for weapons and that it was "inhuman", has become as a human weapon in the war as a rifle, and today the number and type of gas weapons is not a number. Armenian "humane" idea, however, despite the millions of victims still clinging to life, roams from document to document that the whole world except for us long ago threw in the trash. Oh, our naive attempts to teach the whole world! Is not there today funds pledged in the world of "inhumane"? And we are still in naive, thinking that tomorrow, when will a new war, this weapon will not be used. That's because the Bolsheviks were doing experiments on the creation of new bombs as with poisonous gases, and infectious diseases. And about this and speak and write every day. We are not only not so naive to believe that this experience of the Bolsheviks tomorrow will raise the noise is not a little more German, and that the Bolsheviks did not announce more barbarous Germans, but we have the courage to declare that he who lulls our minds out of date or preaching humanity fraud diverts our thoughts from the vengeful quest and create more than inhumane weapons, the worst offender, and our main adversary in this war of liberation. No one, no people, no nation has more sacred rights to such ideas, which we Armenians. Scrub that anyone anywhere has never been so brutally destroy, loyal, cut, no one is in our situation. And no one, no nation or people are not humiliated, not so relaxed and has an urgent need to compensate for its weakness even in the most inhumane weapons. This right is justified by the sanctity of our sacrifice and sacredness of our struggle. We can not forget the millions of martyrs, and therefore must be true warriors in our war. After that, no matter how horrible a war for our existence, it not only can not break our hands, but on the contrary, will give the sanctity of our momentous struggle, and this time we really spit in the face of the Pharisees, the world stood on the corpses of our enemies. If we give up really unfounded hope and believe in the possibility and reality of the victory, which I have no doubt, and will bring to us, "inhumanity" - a sober view of things, it will be the supreme law, the only way to turn in people, nation, and CREATE STATE. Only in the inhumanity we can beat our enemy. This vevru we must confess, and in this respect to our war for existence, which, along with the machinations of vsyakomi and hostility against us and still TIME. Woe to him who does not understand that! Because he will be defeated
