Senator blasts Australia's failure to recognize Armenian Genocide
259004.jpg
August 16, 2018 - 10:29 AMT

PanARMENIAN.Net - Momentum to recognise the Armenian Genocide continued to build in Australia's Federal Parliament, with high-profile Senator Eric Abetz rising in the Upper House to express his "hope that Australia will be in the vanguard of this just endeavour to obtain recognition and reparation for the plight of the world's Armenian peoples, as our forebears were 100 years ago in providing food, support and practical assistance", reported the Armenian National Committee of Australia (ANC-AU).

In a powerful speech by the former Leader of the Government in the Senate and Minister, which also covered human rights abuses suffered by Lithuanians, Senator Abetz did not mince his words.

"Arrests, imprisonment, rape, death marches, subjugation of children—you name it—were all part and parcel of the Armenian genocide," said the Senator representing Tasmania in the Federal Parliament. "This documented brutality and the eyewitness accounts have been ignored for far too long."

Senator Abetz went on to address the fact that Australia was yet to recognise the Armenian Genocide.

"Eyewitness accounts were brought to us by our very own Australian servicemen who were there at that time, as were the war reporters, over 100 years ago," he said. "Potentially, sensitivities by authorities relating to the Gallipoli Peninsula may have quietened that which should have been a loud voice of condemnation of deliberate, orchestrated, official policy in 1915, which saw the removal of the Armenians from the Ottoman Empire."

"I'm a firm believer that justice ultimately prevails and I, therefore, believe that justice will ultimately come the way of the Armenian people. But I am also reminded that justice delayed is justice denied," Senator Abetz added.

"After 103 years, the delay, the denial and the disingenuous excuses need to be expunged in favour of acceptance, acknowledgement and apology. It is my hope that Australia will be in the vanguard of this just endeavour to obtain recognition and reparation for the plight of the world's Armenian peoples, as our forebears were 100 years ago in providing food, support and practical assistance."

ANC-AU Executive Director Haig Kayserian, who recently met with Senator Abetz as part of a delegation following the historic House of Representatives' debate unanimously favouring Australia's recognition of the Armenian Genocide, through the prism of the country's first major international humanitarian relief effort which aided thousands of survivors in 1915.

"We thank Senator Abetz for his moral leadership and righteous stance on justice for the Armenian Genocide," Kayserian said. "We look forward to the day that the Australian Foreign Ministry's position on the Armenian Genocide is similarly such moral leadership, and not one that appeases denial of the Armenian Genocide and Australia’s own of historical connection to the Armenian Genocide and humanitarian aid."

Earlier in August, the Green Party called on New Zealand's Parliament to officially recognize the Genocide. Green MP Gareth Huges plans to put forward a corresponding motion in Parliament.

Whether Merkel says word “genocide” during her visit to Armenia. Turkey concerned

German Chancellor Angela Merkel will arrive on an official visit to Armenia on August 24-25.

According to Turkish media reports, Turkey is concerned over the fact that the German Chancellor will visit the Armenian Genocide memorial complex for victims of the Armenian Genocide and will possible say the word “genocide.”

Angela Merkel will meet with Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan in Yerevan on August 24 to discuss bilateral relations after political changes. Chancellor will lay a wreath at the Armenian Genocide memorial complex.

To note, on June 2, 2016, the German Bundestag (the Federal Assembly) adopted the Armenian Genocide resolution. However, after the Turkish allegations about possible escalation of relations with Turkey, the Merkel’s government announced that it had to respect the Bundestag’s decision, underlining that the German government would not make any statement on that resolution.

Jailed Turkish novelist working on Armenian Genocide book
 
Ahmet-Altan-620x300.jpg

Turkish and novelist Ahmet Altan, who was jailed last February and sentenced to life imprisonment for their alleged involvement in a 2016 coup attempt, is working on the untitled final volume of his Ottoman Quartet series, Publisher Weekly reports.

The final volume of the Ottoman Quartet is set in 1915 and “tells the tales of the Battle of Gallipoli and the Armenian Genocide.”

The Ottoman Quartet, launched in 1998 with the publication of Like a Sword Wound, was always intended to be a longterm project. “I planned this as a tetralogy to show the cultural diversification and inner conflicts within a family as the years passed, while at the same time telling the story of the step-by-step collapse of an empire. Such novels take time to write, because one needs to do serious historical research.”

Altan is already well-known for his public statements about the genocide, a subject so taboo in Turkey that anyone who mentions it risks jail for “insulting Turkishness.”

“I think the best narration of the dark and bloody face of history is found in literature,” he said. “Literature doesn’t only give us the historical truth, it also enables us to form emotional linkage to what happened in history, it enables us to carry inside the marks of the events of the past. The mental tremor one feels while reading the feelings of a woman watching her child being killed is more profound than one’s reaction to the factual statement that ‘one million people were killed.’ The former helps you much better appreciate the truth of it all.”
