3568) How Good Hearted People Were Brain Washed To Donate To Aid Christianity

Commentary by Sukru Server Aya

We have at hand some fifteen “News Bulletin” of the “American Committee for Armenian and Syrian Relief”, which by August 6, 1918 Congress incorporated the committee as the Near East Relief ,n official approval of the NER’s efforts to organize food.

In the August Posting # 3567, I had commented only on the most important of these Bulletins. Now I would like to “round up these Bulletins” with very short notes about their contents. In principle I am not for or against “decent missionaries of their faiths”! I was lucky to be educated by some of these honorable missionaries, quite a number of which rest in Istanbul Protestant Cemeteries and for which I had organized in the past memorial visits and church ceremonies with graduate friends. I think that readers enlightened by sufficient knowledge and intelligence, will detest the sufferings and blood baths made in the name of GOD (the merciful or revengeful)? It suffices to see what is going on today by Islamist fanatics, or remember other cases of the Thirty Years Wars, or myth of Catholic Pope Joan or Protestant Jim Jones and the end of his People’s Temple and followers!

. . .

Unfortunately Religious leaders, rather than speaking peace, compassion and logic, they recklessly make speeches and declarations on historical subjects which are not their proficiency nor authority or business.
and note the solidarity of Catholics (Pope), German Protestant Priest (President) and the Armenian Gregorian Patriarch.)

To have a better look in the subject of the “Armenian Genocide – Braveries – Relief Works and consequences”, see

This Doctorate thesis has sentences such as: […the Armenians captured American imaginations… U.S. cultural and political elites took up the humanitarian cause in the name of their “Christian” citizenship… with solemn vows of the American Christian’s duty to protect the poor, starving Armenians… it was the sacred duty of Christian civilization to save Armenia…Fundraisers and relief workers claimed that America’s relief efforts would transform the Holy Land because Armenians would be redeemed as they were modernized and Americanized.]

Ref 02: Vol. II, November 1918, No. 6: Call of Chairman James Barton for $ 30 million. Dramatization of Armenians; 600 US magazines have offered free space for articles on Armenia. Ambassador Morgenthau’s article in “November Good Housekeeping” magazine describing massacres and deportations! (Note: Morgenthau was in service from Nov. 1913 to Feb. 1, 1916. He had taken a trip to Egypt and Palestine for one month with Lord Bryce; otherwise he never went out of Istanbul, saw no massacres or deportations; he did not even visit one Christian Church or museums. His book “Ambassador Morgenthau’s Story” has been directly belied by his own hand written Diary released lately. Reference to “photo-play produced to enlist sympathy to show extensively in 50 cities” Further down see some of the Posters prepared by NER and Morgenthau and see the magnitude of lies to the contributors who were indoctrinated to give more and more.)
