3770) The Nameless One by Roger Casement

 The Nameless One by Roger Casementby Dr Pat Walsh

Roger Casement wrote ‘The Nameless One’ at the end of November, 1898. He did so outside Lagos, onboard the Gretchen Bolen, sailing to London.  It is a poem largely about the massacre of Armenians by the forces of the Sultan of Turkey, Abdul Hamid, known widely as “Abdul the Damned” in England. It is a vicious poem, couched in biblical/classical language, but its message is clear: The Sultan and his Empire is a product of Hell and should be consigned back to its place of origin. . . .

3769) Biden plays Politics with Genocide (Updated)

2021-04-24 Biden plays Politics with Genocide (updated) Dr Pat Walsh

“Each year on this day, we remember the lives of all those who died in the Ottoman-era Armenian genocide and recommit ourselves to preventing such an atrocity from ever again occurring… Today, as we mourn what was lost, let us also turn our eyes to the future – toward the world that we wish to build for our children. A world unstained by the daily evils of bigotry and intolerance, where human rights are respected, and where all people are able to pursue their lives in dignity and security… Let us renew our shared resolve to prevent future atrocities from occurring anywhere in the world. And let us pursue healing and reconciliation for all the people of the world.” President Joe Biden, 24th April 2021.

Biden did not mention any of the Turks and Kurds who died as a result of the general assault made by the Imperialist Powers on the Ottoman state in conjunction with the insurrection behind the lines by Armenian revolutionary groups, even though the death toll among these people was much higher than among those he chose to remember. Moslem Lives Don’t Matter, it seems.

3768) Video: President Biden & April 24th : Against the U.S. Constitution and People

President Biden & April 24th : Against the U.S. Constitution and the people. Recognizing the flawed Armenian narrative as genocide would be offensive to Turkey. Insulting Turkey would not contribute to improving U.S. – Turkey relations. A disappointed, dismayed and incensed Turkey may be compelled to reconsider the U.S.’s reliability as an ally and may move closer to Eurasian alliance, slowly disengaging from the U.S.’s insults, threats, sanctions, embargoes, and schemes, almost all of which are initiated by the dishonest, racist, and irritating Armenian and Greek lobbies.

Turkey is a valued NATO-member with the second largest and battle-hardened army. Turkey has been a stalwart and reliable ally of the U.S. for more than 70 years. Turks fought bravely, shoulder-to-shoulder with Americans, in Korea against communist aggression, and were awarded the U.S. Congressional medal for their valor.

Turks also fought alongside the U.S. soldiers against terrorism in Afghanistan, ethnic cleansing in Kosovo, sectarianism in Somalia, and other evil elsewhere. Turkey is strategic partner for the U.S. in the troubled Middle East, Eastern Mediterranean, Northern Africa, the Caucasus, the Balkans, and beyond. Turkey sits on arguably the single most important geography in the world.

Surrounded by three seas and strategic waterways and channels, Turkey is the most celebrated country where three continents meet; East and West hug each other; monotheists religions flourish; some 30 civilizations overlap; the earliest human settlements and innovations for millenniums take root; ancient silk routes, modern roads and waterways crisscross; today’s energy corridors find a hub; and more. The claim of genocide ignores the many armed Armenian rebellions, terrorism, treason, territorial demands, and the suffering of the Muslims, mostly Turks, at the hands of Armenian revolutionaries. What’s left is the flawed Armenian narrative with heavy doses of hearsay, forgeries, and embellishments injected into it.

When one completely ignores half the story, every conflict in History, including the U.S. Civil War, may look like a genocide. I urge you, Mr. President, to put American interests before Armenian ones and refrain from using the G word on April 24th. Don’t divide and polarize us; unite and heal us. Don’t reward dishonest and racist claim of Armenian genocide; reward research, dialogue, and peace. I make this request in the exercise my First Amendment right to petition government for a redress of grievances.
