Turkish massacre of the Armenians (letter)


by Bill Webster

News Weekly, March 12, 2005
Sir,

Thanks to News Weekly and R.J. Stove for coverage of the Turkish massacre of the Armenians (News Weekly, February 26, 2005). After reading a booklet found in an old chest of my grandmother's, An Auction of Souls by Aurora Mardiganian - who went through the trials losing her family, but eventually, with assistance, escaping to America - I remarked to my wife that I doubted I would ever be the same.

Mardiganian recalled numerous Turkish atrocities, including "tossing babes from bayonet to bayonet, rolling pregnant women down a hillside and bayoneting them at the bottom, raping women and then killing them because the perpetrators had been defiled by the infidel women, and endless killing for the sake of killing."

Whilst keeping an open Christian mind, I now tend to at least cock one eye when I hear that "Islam wouldn't hurt an ant."

The genocide of the Armenians is a story that deserves to be heard. We are rightly regularly reminded of the Jewish Holocaust. Why not the Armenian Holocaust (and the Soviet Holocaust – some 34 million plus)? Turkey needs to cleanse its soul of these atrocities, before it takes its rightful place among nations.

Bill Webster,
Holland Park, Qld
