Alevi Kurds = Armenians ?

Prof. Dr. Yusuf Halaçoglu from TTK (Turkish Historical Society) has stated
that "Kurds are actually Turkmen and that the Alevi Kurds are actually

Yusuf Halaçoglu is the leading genocide denier in Turkey

"I do not speak without evidence. Some may prefer
making noisy arguments, but I do not make statements
without conducting studies. Professors bury their
heads in the sand."

Halacoglu also claims that many Turks became Kurds
due to the feudal structure of Ottoman society in the
16th century. Alevis, too, harshly reacted to
Halacoglu's remarks that `Alevi Kurds are actually Armenians.'

Yusuf Halaçoglu says that many Armenians identified
themselves as `Kurdish Alevis' in an attempt to save
themselves from the genocide, or as he self says the forced
migration of Armenians in 1915 to avoid a genocide label
on the nation.

This was found on the TTK´s homepage:
"Turkey should fight against this unjust and
biased legislation and try to prevent the genocide
label from being attached to the nation. Otherwise,
those Turkish children who read in textbooks that
their ancestors were murderers will suffer an
inferiority complex and will become asocial in the
countries in which they live."

Some of the Turkish security experts had claimed
that the PKK party is an Armenian terrorism and it
has been strong in the Armenian donmes region.

Halacoglu together with the American Prof. Justin McCarthy is the
front figures in the genocide denial movement.

the truth is most armenians who survived the genocide were sheltered by kurdish Alevi's, hence to live on further took up that identity. alevis are very tolerable against other religions and actually never got on with the ottomons or the current state. halacoglu is a racist scholar who belives in blood supremacy of turks and in his little mind trying to separate kurds with muslim beliefs, and actually uses the term armenian as a deregulatory word. thats the truth turks are thought to hate armenians and some even claim armenians committed a genocide on turks! oh well this is turkey !
