Türk Toplumunun Değerli Üyeleri,

Ne yazıkki son hafta içinde Avustralyalı ‘sözde’ insan hakları savunucusu Geoffrey Robertson, yeni yazdığı ‘An Inconvienient Genocide’ adlı kitabını daha çok satabilmek için kanal – kanal gezip Türk toplumuna olan nefretini dile getirmektedir.

THE TURKISH-ARMENIAN DISPUTE: WHO HAS SOMETHING TO HIDE?

by Maxime Gauin *

In the context of the Perinçek v. Switzerland case, and of the forthcoming centennial of 1915, Turkey will be, once again, pressured to “face history.” However, who can contest the fact that contemporary history should be written after free studies in the relevant archives? The Ottoman and Turkish archives (prior to 1938) have been open since 1989 and the ease of access greatly increased over the last 15 years. Supporters of the “Armenian genocide” have worked in the Ottoman archives since 1991, including Ara Sarafian, Hilmar Kaiser, Garabet Moumdjian and Taner Akçam.

04.09.2014 – NSW Politician’s racist post against Turks lead to divisive comments on Facebook

ATA-A Media Release

4 September 2014

NSW Politician’s racist post against Turks lead to divisive comments on Facebook

Last week Australian Turkish Advocacy Alliance (“ATA-A”) engaged in its first ever “advocacy week” in Canberra. During the Advocacy Week, ATA-A has also held a “Friends of Turkey Reception” to where almost 20 MPs and Senators attended including the members of the Australia Turkey Inter Parliamentary Friendship Group. The hosts of the reception were the chair and the vice chair of the Parliamentary Friendship Group Mr Craig Laundy , Member for Reid and Mr Rob Mitchell, member for McEwen.

The New South Wales MLC Rev Fred Nile, otherwise known as the father of the divisive and racist “genocide motions” NSW Parliament has passed in 2013 attacked the host MPs by another bigoted Facebook post. The poorly photoshoped image titled “Armenian/Seyfo Genocide deniers should not be hosted by our politicians” shows Craig Laundy MP, Member for Reid and Rob Mitchell MP, Member for McEwen with a Turkish Flag background and the poster shows Fred Nile writing “Thinks he’s a historian, is just really a racist bigot”.

ATA-A Media Statement

on Australian Government Decision to Arm Kurdish Peshmergas

2 September 2014

ATA-A Supports the efforts by the international community to contain the terrorist threat that is ISIS.

ISIS has carried out massacres of Turkmen muslims, and holding nearly 50 Turkish consular staff hostage.

Whilst we cannot comment about the specific steps the Australian Government choses to take in fighting ISI, we urge the Australian Government to work in cooperation with its partner and ally in the region that is Republic of Turkey.
