Seems rude not to remember the Armenian genocide

They dont want to remember any Christians that have experienced many genocides because it destroys their narrative that Christians are evil and have never been persecuted

When a state full of god-less bastards start promoting a religion, you know the game is on.

Armenia was literally the first Christian nation. Their king was converted and he made all his subjects Christian. Well before Constantine did it to Rome

They were genocided because the empire was falling apart. The Ottoman Empire was called the sick man or Europe, the origin of the term. The rulers knew this and in an effort to hold everything together they targeted religious minorities to try and wipe them out. The Armenians were notoriously stubborn

So we're the Lebanese/phonecians but the Armenians got the bulk of the hit

Admitting it was a genocide means discussing why it was done. It's not good for the current narrative being pushed to highlight what a Muslim majority does to a Christian minority that wants to retain its own culture. Might have those pesky Europeans putting 2+2 together and looking at demographics stats and realizing "holy shit this will be bad"

Probably has something to do with the ((("Young Turks"))) actually being Jewish....

This. Why don't people understand that socialism leads to government control?

No shit.

The Armenians are pretty cool. They're the only worthwhile people in Western Asia.
