SuÃ¨de : assassinat d'un chercheur du gÃ©nocide assyrien
Publié le :
Info Collectif VAN - www.collectifvan.org - Le Collectif VAN vous soumet cette nouvelle inquiÃ©tante : Le 11 dÃ©cembre 2007 vers 15h30, l'universitaire assyrien Fuat Deniz a Ã©tÃ© mortellement blessÃ© Ã l'UniversitÃ© de Ã–rebro en SuÃ¨de. Il a Ã©tÃ© attaquÃ© par derriÃ¨re et poignardÃ© dans le cou par un assaillant inconnu. Sa mort a Ã©tÃ© annoncÃ©e le 12 dÃ©cembre par l'HÃ´pital de l'UniversitÃ© de Ã–rebro. Ses recherches portaient sur le massacre des minoritÃ©s chrÃ©tiennes en Turquie en 1915 et spÃ©cialement sur le gÃ©nocide assyrien. Fuat Deniz devait publier son deuxiÃ¨me livre sur le sujet.
L'Ã©quivalent suÃ©dois du FBI, la police de la sÃ©curitÃ© suÃ©doise (SÃ„PO), a annoncÃ© qu'elle examinait ce cas car l'attaque pourrait avoir un motif politique. Le SÃ„PO a notÃ© que M. Fuat Deniz a consacrÃ© une grande partie de sa recherche Ã l'identitÃ© assyrienne et au gÃ©nocide des Assyriens par les Turcs. Sa thÃ¨se de doctorat portait sur : "l'OdyssÃ©e d'une MinoritÃ© : l'Exemple assyrien".
Le Dr. Fuat devait participer Ã une confÃ©rence internationale sur l'identitÃ© assyrienne et le gÃ©nocide assyrien commis par la Turquie, le vendredi 14 DÃ©cembre Ã l'UniversitÃ© de Leiden en Hollande.
Il est donc plus que probable que son assassinat soit liÃ© Ã ses recherches historiques.
Nous terminions notre Tribune Libre publiÃ©e dans le magazine France-ArmÃ©nie NÂ°307 en date du 1er dÃ©cembre 2007, par ces mots :
"Faudra-t-il attendre que lÂ’ultra-nationalisme turc tue en Europe ou aux USA pour que nos gouvernements sÂ’en inquiÃ¨tent ?"
Le 19 janvier 2007, Hrant Dink, journaliste armÃ©nien de Turquie, a Ã©tÃ© abattu Ã Istanbul.
Il n'aura mÃªme pas fallu attendre le premier anniversaire de son assassinat pour voir l'exportation de cette violence extrÃªme en Europe.

Assyrian Professor Dies From Stab Wound
Posted GMT 12-13-2007 19:58:25
Ã–rebro, Sweden (AINA) -- Dr. Fuat Deniz, a renowned lecturer and Ph.D researcher in the field of sociology at Ã–rebro University, was pronounced dead today by Ã–rebro University Hospital; Dr. Deniz was stabbed in the neck by an unknown assailant on Tuesday. The murder of a teacher during day time and in his own workplace has shocked the community in Ã–rebro, a mid size Swedish town. There are no witnesses to the stabbing and no suspect yet. Police are working to secure forensic evidence, survey the victim's daily routine and his circle of acquaintances.
Sweden's equivalent to the FBI, the Swedish security police (SÃ„PO), have announced they are looking into this case because the attack could have a political motive. SÃ„PO noted that Mr. Fuat Deniz dedicated much of his research to Assyrian identity and the Turkish genocide of Assyrians. His masters thesis, A Minority's Odyssey: the Assyrian Example, was praised for its way of describing developments in social identities among Assyrians.
The Swedish research and university minister, Lars Leijonborg, participated in the commemoration ceremony held in Ã–rebro on Thursday, expressing his sorrow for the loss of a promising teacher and researcher. "Dr. Fuat Deniz and his family came to our country to escape violence and assaults. It is a terrible tragedy that this has happened to him. He was not only a national hero for Assyrians but a role model for many in our society," said the minister with tearful eyes.
The Swedish flag in front of the Ã–rebro University was flown at half mast and hundreds of students at the university were present during the ceremony. It was revealed that Dr. Fuat was to receive the universities' "good educator" award next week. He was admired among colleagues and students, who chose him as their favorite for the award.
Dr. Fuat was to participate in an international conference on Assyrian identity and the Turkish Assyrian genocide at the University of Leiden in Holland on Friday 14 December.
Abboud Ado, vice chairman of the Assyrian federation of Sweden, expressed his feelings of sorrow and announced that all Assyrian associations in Sweden have been instructed to place a picture of Dr. Deniz and open their doors for people who want to share their grief. The Syriac Orthodox bishop of Scandinavia, Ablahad Gallo Shabo, said his death is an immense loss for Sweden and the Assyrians.
Dr. Fuats daughter celebrated her third birthday last Monday.

Assyrian professor Fuat Deniz officially declared braindead
(Updated Version) 12.Dec.2007
Written by: Besima Simsek
The Assyrian professor Fuat Deniz was seriously injured at the University of Ã–rebro around 3.30 Am on tuesday. The perpetrator stabbed him with a knife in the back of his neck. Fuat Deniz condtition is very critical and in the writing moment the Swedish police has not been able to find the responsible for this action yet.
The police has collected information about the perpetrator from witnesses and has now a description of the suspect. An observation camera in a local store has catched him on picture.
Fuat Deniz was born in the village of Kerburan, Turabdin, as the familyÂ’s eldest son. As a nine year old, the family emigrated to Sweden. Fuat Deniz performed a long trip into his university studies and academia. Sociology became his main subject, which resulted in books like Â“A life between two worldsÂ” and Â“A minorityÂ’s odyssey Â– the Assyrian exampleÂ”. As a youngster he was active in the Assyrian Youth Federation and was a diligent writer for HujÃ¥dÃ¥ Magazine.
When Â“A life between two worldsÂ” was published in the 90s, not much had been written about immigrants, especially not on Assyrians. Fuat Deniz deliberately used Assyrians as an example in his articles, books and lectures.
In a perfect world, Fuat Deniz would have chosen the name Gilgamesh for his own. Â“Gilgamesh is a pleasant person. He asks the existential questions and is a person you easily can identify with. A strong and brave personÂ”, Fuat Deniz answered a couple of years ago in an interview.
We are shocked over this evil deed. Our thoughts and blessings go to his family and relatives.
