Revue de Presse - Death threats to Istanbul Armenians
Publié le : 21-05-2007
A letter written in the Turkish language, sent to schools and to several Istanbul based Armenian institutions, is of death threat for the Armenians which would not conform "to the Turkish official version of the facts concerning the Armenian Genocide. They will be regarded as accomplices and traitors, and will be eliminated,” the letter read. This letter with many spelling mistakes was transmitted by an Armenian school from Istanbul to French association of fight against negationism "Collectif VAN,” independent correspondent Jean Eckian informs from Paris.
It ends in these words: "The Last Warning and Ultimatum … …exclamations 'We are all Armenians, we are all Hrant Dink' are examples of extreme chauvinism and summons for revolution. Do not forget that except Armenian citizens of Turkey, there are also Armenians from Armenia on our land, and they count over 100 thousand. Both their addresses and their workplaces are well known. Henceforth we hope to see our Armenian citizens as advocates of truth. "The one which does not take a favourable position for this paradisiacal fatherland must be eliminated."
And finally it takes again a Mustafa Kemal Ataturk’s formula, which says, “When it acts of the fatherland, the remainder is only one detail.” This mail is signed by a certain Temel Malatyali.
