    Czech Senate Adopts Resolution Condemning Armenian Genocide

    MAY 21, 2020

    The Czech Senate condemned the crimes against humanity committed by Nazis during WW2 and the Armenian genocide in the Ottoman Empire 105 years ago in a resolution on Wednesday, Ceske Noviny reports.

    “At its plenary session on May 20, the Senate of the Czech Republic unanimously adopted a resolution on the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II and the atrocities committed against humanity during the two world wars, including the condemnation of the Armenian Genocide,” the statement noted.

    The resolution was presented by Senate Vice-President Milan Štěch.

    In April 2017 the Chamber of Deputies of the Czech Parliament approved a resolution, condemning the genocide of Armenians and other religious and national minorities in the Ottoman Empire during the First World War.

    About the Armenian Genocide

    The Armenian Genocide (also known as the Armenian Holocaust) was the systematic mass murder and expulsion of 1.5 million ethnic Armenians carried out in Turkey and adjoining regions by the Ottoman government between 1914 and 1923.

    The starting date is conventionally held to be 24 April 1915, the day that Ottoman authorities rounded up, arrested, and deported from Constantinople (now Istanbul) to the region of Angora (Ankara), 235 to 270 Armenian intellectuals and community leaders, the majority of whom were eventually murdered.

    In early 1915, the Young Turk regime rounded up hundreds of Armenians and hanged many of them in the streets of Istanbul, before beginning the genocidal deportation of most of the Armenian population to the desert, in which up to a million died or were murdered en route.

    The Armenian Genocide is recognized by many countries, particularly by Uruguay, Russia, France, Lithuania, the lower house of the Italian Parliament, the Parliament of the United States, Luxembourg, Austria, Chile, Greece, Cyprus, Argentina, Belgium, Wales, National Council of Switzerland, Chamber of Commons of Canadian Parliament and Seym of Poland.

    It was a mistake to sign the Treaty of Alexandropol, we should have met with our Azerbaijani bros at the border and expelled the Armenians from the region.

    But that's just my opinion.

    Funny how they treat the Armenian Genocide and the Holocaust as the same.

    When they are both different in every way possible. The jews did not lead an armed rebellion for an independant state also to enlarge their territory they did not commit treason against their own state or collarborate with the allies invading Germany.

    Before people start pulling off the stunt of how Ataturk inspired the Nazis. By the way the Nazis were inspired by many things like Martin Luther, colonialism and eugenics also social darwinism.

    Our independance war was to protect our homeland not go around executing other races or ethnic groups and engaging in superiority garbage.

    If Czechs do something - keep in mind they were told to do so by "someone else". Just a few weeks ago those cockroaches removed the monument to Marshall Konev, who is the liberator of Czechoslovakia and one of the reason those scums exist to this days. They can not do anything without the master's approval.
