Alliance of Civilizations gaining visibility -- tonight on MY PERSPECTIVE talk about Turkey/Armenians
This is interesting. Javier Solana appears to have structured early moves on the "Alliance of Civilizations" through Prime Ministers Zapatero of Spain and Erdogan of Turkey. In the early 1900s Turkey waged war on its Christian Armenian population and 1.5 million Armenians upwards perished. Others had to flee. Hitler reportedly was inspired to conduct his holocaust operations against the Jews by the Armenian genocide precedent.
Turkey has repeatedly tried to suppress awareness of that early religious and ethnic genocide. Embarrassingly to Alliance of Civilizations, Erdogan has threatened retaliation by deportation of Armenians lucky enough to remain alive and still living in Turkey. Tonight, my friend author an retired teacher Virginia Haroutunian, the daughter of an Armenian genocide survivor will discuss that event, the effect it had on her family, and her feelings about Turkey's current actions. She is the author of ORPHAN IN THE SAND about those experiences.. We will be on MY PERSPECTIVE internet radio TONIGHT, MAY 6, 2010 at www.themicroeffect.com. There are also satellite radio connections, which you can find by going to that website. Plan to join us tonight by listening and joining us in the chatroom.
