Armenian Genocide 2.0

Silence over mass Christian murder continues

October 19, 2020  0

Escalating conflict between Armenia and Muslim-majority rival Azerbaijan has resulted in the shelling of an Armenian cathedral.

The renewal of hostilities against Armenia, despite a 1994 cease-fire with Azerbaijan, has been aided by Turkish military resources, as well as Islamic terrorist manpower from Syria.

The bloodshed comes as Turkey is escalating maritime claims against Greece and increasing rhetoric from Turkish President Recep Erdoğan praising past Muslim conquests and heroes.

Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan has this to say of the conflict, "It is an existential threat. So the whole problem is if the armed forces of Azerbaijan succeed, it will mean a genocide of the Armenians in Nagorno-Karabakh."

The last time Azerbaijan violated the cease-fire came in 2016, mere hours after the country's president met with then-U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry.

The strife comes against the backdrop of the 1915 Armenian Genocide, in which up to a million and a half Christians were murdered by Muslim Turks.

Even today, the slaughter is not recognized as genocide by most countries — owing to political pressure from Turkey.

Russia stepped in to stop the violence and renew the temporary truce, but hostilities recommenced almost immediately.

Archbishop Anoushavan Tanielian wants the Western world to remain informed of the crisis: "Unfortunately, Azerbaijan is supported, helped and even manipulated, if it is possible to use this term, by the Republic of Turkey," he said.

A total of 710 Armenian soldiers have been killed so far, along with 60 civilians.

Before launching his slaughter of the Polish people, Hitler boldly claimed there would be no objection to the act because, "Who, after all, speaks today of the annihilation of the Armenians?"

Today, Armenian Christians are praying for the silence over Jihadi terrorism to end.
