Genocide to pull Georgian Armenians together2011-04-13 12:55
For the second time Georgian Armenians appealed to the country' government asking to admit the genocide committed against them in the Ottoman Empire. They do not cherish much hope for Tbilisi's positive decision but Armenian political experts believe this step to help consolidate the community. Georgians are not so afraid of domestic destabilization, of which preparation they suspect Armenians, as to spoil relationship with the Turkic Turkey and Azerbaijan.
The issue of admitting the genocide against Armenians was raised in the Georgian parliament last year. That time, deputies simply waved it away and took on studying quite a different historical period: the times when the Caucasus was conquered by Russian Empire, of which Georgia was a part, by the way, and the fate of the Georgian nations. Two hundred years later, the Georgians felt deep compassion for those Circassians and Adygeis who had to flee from the Caucasus as Turkish nationals or who were killed during military actions. As the Georgian researchers believe, it all speaks for the imperial genocide that must be urgently admitted before the Olympics 2014 in Sochi.
But when the Armenians provide historical proof of how they were killed on a national basis and evicted from the Ottoman Empire, destined to famine and death on their way, Georgian historians justify Ankara by saying that the Armenians were the "fifth column" and Turkey treated them as potential traitors in the First World War. According to Guram Murkhulia's earnest conviction, even if the Armenians were punished in the Ottoman Empire, the blame lies fully with Moscow. Sure, it was Russian Empire that drew on Armenians to stir up rebellions in Turkey, promising to endow them with the conquered lands, as a professor of an unreal educational institution asserts.
The version of Russia's guilt in the genocide against Armenians in the Ottoman Empire has not been added by official Tbilisi to its armoury but if the parliament responds to the Georgian Armenians' appeal, the resolution will most probably be anti-Russian like the rest of the products of this body with the pro-Saakashvili majority.
