Commemorating the Greek Genocide

We’ve heard a lot lately about the “genocide” at Srebrenica in Bosnia, thanks to the recent decision by the Canadian Government to ban Srdja Trifkovic from Canada.

There’s another genocide — a real one — that the Islamic world and most Western governments don’t want to talk about: the genocide against Christians conducted by the Turks during and after the First World War. There were actually three overlapping genocides involved — against the Armenian minority in Turkey, against the Assyrians in what is now mostly Iraq, and against the Greeks in Thrace and Asia Minor.

Η βαθειά κρίση τής Ομογένειας και οι επιλογές ανθρώπων που υπηρετούν αυτούς τούς θεσμούς.

Γράφει η Σεβαστή Μπούρα- Μπούτου

Τελευταία έπεσε στα χέρια μου μια χαρτολαδόκολα που το A.H.I American Hellenic Institute περιέφερε σε κάποιες Πολιτείες, ζητώντας όσο πιο πολλούς πελάτες, πιο ευγενικά συνυπογράφοντες, για να δοθεί η τελευταία χαριστική βολή στο Μακεδονικό, με τον λεγόμενο γεωγραφικό προσδιορισμό τού ονόματος τού ψευδοκράτους.

Για να κάνω το σχόλιο πιο κατανοητό, η νέα διοίκηση τού παραπάνω Οργανισμού, που μας είχε αφήσει κάποιες καλές αναμνήσεις με την στάση τού Ρωσίδη, έχει αλλάξει την πολιτική της τόσο παράξενα που αναρωτιόμαστε, κάποιοι από εμάς, τι ρόλο παίζει και θα παίξει το λεγόμενο A.H.I από εδώ και εμπρός στην υπεράσπιση τών Εθνικών μας θεμάτων και ιδιαίτερα τού όλο και πιο περιπλεκόμενου προβλήματος από το Σκοπιανό στο Μακεδονικό.

HELLENES WRITE TO AHI : “GEOGRAPHICAL QUALIFIER” FOR MACEDONIA?

For Immediate Release: July 11, 2009

NEW YORK—The Hellenic League of America (HLA) alerts the community about support for the false historical revisionist “geographical qualifier” for Macedonia. Several statements by the American Hellenic Institute AHI –one of the oldest establishment institutions purporting to support Hellenism in America – indicate AHI support for legislation supporting the “geographical qualifier” for Macedonia in Congress. This expresses a split between historical truth and community opinion and the false historical revisionism supported by the Greek political establishment or Greek ruling class in Greece, and its lobbies or allies in Washington DC.

Letters to the Editor

The Washington Times

3600 New York Avenue, NE

Washington, DC 20002

To the Editor:

Ivica Bocevski neglected to clarify the legacy of the so-called name dispute, as reported in The Washington Times recently («No names, please,» Embassy Row, World, June 12). The country Mr. Bocevski hails from is a state that was part of the former Yugoslavia, an artificial political construct that waged war on Greece during the immediate aftermath of World War II.
