This is not true, Kurdish media, express themselves very rarely negative about minorities in Kurdistan or Armenia as a neighbor.
There is the current situation is not a single Kurdish media channel that denies the genocide or who tried to disparage the Armenians.
As a Mather of fact it has several Kurdish newspapers an open and formal policy that does not diminish or deny the genocide that took place in 1915 against the Armenians in which Kurdish groups also were involved as perpetrators.
One example is the Kurdish Herald, which has it written into their policies and guidelines that they dont publish materials includin 'denial of the Armenian Genocide, including using attributes that lessen the significance of the event " [SOURCE]

Areshev's statement is unfortunate and not true, what he is trying to achieve so he should do so by telling the truth.

To increase the income gained from the ads, the Turkish State TV (TRT) undertook new steps. According to the Turkish daily "Sabah", an ad in Kurdish will be broadcast on TRT 6, as "Veritas Medya", managing the ad business in the Turkish TRT, considers it necessary. The ads in different languages and dialects are allowed to be on TRT since 1 January. According to this, Kurdish, Armenian, Arabic and ads in other languages are possible to be broadcast only when a corresponding program in that language is on.

State University of Yerevan, Armenia
The earliest, irregular and sporadic contacts between Armenians and Kurds date back
approximately to the 11th -12th centuries AD. However, it was not until the movement of Kurds to various parts of Mesopotamia and Armenia had grown into mass migration in the first half of the 16th century that the Armenian-Kurdish relationships became active. Since that period and up until the late 1920s - prior to the Armenian genocide in the Ottoman Empire - these two peoples had been in close and constant contact. As a result, in some Western Armenian provinces a certain Armeno-Kurdish ethno-linguistic situation emerged, characterised by widespread Armenian-Kurdish bilingualism, which could not but leave obvious traces – local dialects of both languages, to some extent, influenced one another.
Judging from the existent linguistic materials, the influence of Armenian on Kurdish appears to
have been much greater as it manifests itself not only in vocabulary, but also in phonetics, and
partially, word formation. Meanwhile, the influence of Kurdish on Armenian, or, more precisely, on the Western Armenian dialects, was limited to vocabulary, and to a lesser degree as well. This can be explained by the fact that Armenian had somewhat become a sort of substrate language for the Kurmanji dialects spoken in the historical Western Armenian areas.
The Armenian-Kurdish linguistic relationships were in the form of direct contacts; they did not
affect other linguistic aspects of public life, and were exemplified only on the dialect level.
The paper presents the analysis of the Armeno-Kurdish linguistic connections, particularly the
interrelations between the Western Armenian dialects and the Kurdish dialects of the same area.

France's ex Prime Minister Michel Rochard said that he believes thatTurkey deserves its place in Europe but, on Turkey's road to acceptanceinto the EU, it has to face three major obstacles, namely the Cyprus,Kurdish and Armenian problems. Rochard said that a Cyprus solutionwill be a political decision that would greatly help Turkey move astep closer to the EU. According to a press release from Turkey'sAltogether Development Foundation (IKV), joint work has been carriedout by IKV, Yeditepe University Law School and the University ofParis X Nanterre with there aim being 'To Move on from the fears ofTurkey entering Europe'.
A conference was held in Paris on the 12 and 13 March at which the formerFrench PM made a speech in which he saidthat their main aim was to abolish customs duties between the rest ofEurope and Turkey and after a while for it, like the rest of Europe,to start using the euro. He believed that Turkey deserved a placein the EU, but that they will immediately have to face their threebiggest problems, the Cyprus, Armenian and Kurdish problems. Rochardsaid the current state of the Cyprus problem is the main cause of theset back.
Turkey has taken the right steps under the United Nationssupervision and by the Turkish Cypriots saying 'Yes' to the referendumwas also one step closer to a set solution and EU acceptance.

Notes on the Balochi Tribes of Kurdish Origin
Tuesday, March 17, 2009
Turkey committed Genocide of Armenians at the state level in 1915. Now it is committing Genocide of Kurds, President of Kurdish Council of Armenia Knyaz Hasanov said at a press conference in Yerevan Tuesday. He said Kurds are severely repressed in Turkey and put against
each other. In particular, thousands of Kurds are forcefully sent to Iraq to fight against their compatriots residing in that country.
As regards the participation on Kurds in the massacre of Armenians in the Ottoman Empire, K. Hasanov said those were separate Kurds and not the whole nation.
For his part, Chairman of the Public Organization of Greeks of Armenia 'Patrida' Eduard Polatov said Greek have always been for recognition of Armenian Genocide. 'Armenians and Greek are two nations that have always been subjected to pressures in the territory of Armenia. The
purposeful genocide was against Armenians and Greeks, the real masters of today's Turkey. Instead of repenting, Turkey denies the reality', E. Polatov said.

In 2006 I started this site for a deeper understanding between the Armenian and the Kurdish people through a cultural and historical perspective.
Something that I never wrote about the two tragic genocide of Kurds and Armenians have been subjected to, as in the current situation also holds together the peoples. It is not confined to despise a genocide, but very inhumane to support it. Genocide will happen again unless the world community is doing everything in its power to prevent it.
On 16th March 1988, the city of Helebce was bombed in southern Kurdistan, over 5000 people died within hours. The city has become a symbol of genocide in South Kurdistan as assaults from there is so well documented with photography and film.
After about 20 months a total of 182,000 people had been killed, over 1 million civilians were refugees (mostly women and children) and total of 4000 villages, 250 Kurdish cities, 2000 schools and 27 Assyrian churches had been destroyed. The genocide campaign also consisted of deportations, concentration camps and in the current situation over 270 mass graves have been found.
Genocide never happens by accident. It takes time to plan and organize. There are always warning signs. Although the genocide in South Kurdistan came as a surprise to many, there were enough warning signs, both in history and in the present that a genocide threatened.
Iraq's highest court has recognized the former regime's crimes against humanity. Saddam was sentenced to death quickly and never got the blame for the genocide but have Chemical Ali sentenced to death three times for attacks. So, the perpetrators have been taken, the current administration has acknowledged it and historians write about atrocities as genocide. Why then has not the international community recognized the Anfal-campaign as a genocide?
Both Armenians and Kurds need rehabilitation in order to forgive their perpetrators, Armenians have waited over 100 years for relief from today's Turkey, in 1915 over 1.5 million people were massacred, this genocide Hitler to annihilate the Jews during World War II.
All people who are victims of genocide must be rehabilitated so as to initiate a reconciliation process.
Hesbê Evdilhemîd ev bû:
Li rojhilat ji sed mîlyonî zêdetir misilman hebûn û ger bikaribûya polîtîkayek li ser vê rastiyê saz bikira wê gavê ji bo desthilatdariyê , dê neteweperestên Tûranî yên mûxalîf jî piştgiriyê bistenda.
Ser de jî ewî, nakokî yên ku di navbera Alman û Ewropî û Ûris de hebûn baş fam kiribû û carinan bi bertîl be jî, Almanan ber bi xwe ve kişandî bû .
Her çiqas armanca bi rêxistina yekîneyên Hemîdî ne tenê qira ermeniyan be jî, ji ber şert û mercên civakî yên rojhilata împaratoriyê, wê her du gel, ji bo hesabên navxweyî, dê biketina qirika hev û du…
Hê beriya damezirandina van yekîneyên paramîlîter, hêzên emperyalîstên Ewropî ji nîyeta Sultan hayîdarbûn.
Li gorî Yves Ternons, Evdilhemîd ji Professorê macarî Vambery re (bi eslê xwe cihû bû û di serayê de zarokên sultan perwerde dikir) wiha dibêje: “Yeqînî ya te bi xwedê be ezê demekî nêzik de Ermeniyan bînim rê. Dengê wan çawa tê birîn ez baş dizanim” Evdilhemîd, di sala 1863 de, Vambery dişîne Asyaya navîn û li ser rewşa gelên misilmanan pê raporan dide amadekirin.(bnr; Arminus Vambery, Bir sahte Dervişin Orta Asya Gezileri,ses yay.1993)
Navenda Alayên Hemîdi Ezirgan bû. Berpirsyar û sazûmankarê wan jî Muşîr Zekî paşayê Çerkez bû. Evdirehman Bedirxan di hejmara 28’a Kurdistanê de derheqê sazkirina van alayan de wiha dinivîse:
“Ev alayên Siwarên Hemîdî, wek hemî icraatênXunkar(Evdilhemid), bi niyetek fasid hatine danîn. Esil meqsed ji tesîsa van siwara ev e ku, weqta ku Ermenî ji zumla hukumetê gelek bêzar bin, edalet xwestin, Zekî Paşa tirsa ku Kurd jî ji zumla hukumetê xwe bidin mlê Ermeniyan û her du Milet bi tifaq dest hilînin. …Xunkar jî her divê nîfaqê bike mabeyna Milet û efradên binê destê xwe de. Loma fikra Zeki Paşa munasîb dît û da Kurda celbê xwe û ji Ermeniya dûr bike, zû tesîsa van siwara ferman kir”
Serokeşîrên Yekîneyên Hemîdiyan wek sercerdevanên îro dest datanîn ser zevî û mêrgan. Şêniyen dinên xizan û reben, yan dibûn şivan û gavanên wan an jî dibûn pale û xulam û ji wan re û nano ziko dixebitîn. Yên ku xweziliya xwe bi jiyanek azad û bi rûmet dianîn dest bi dizîyê û talanê dikirin, bi gelemperî jî ew çav berdidan malên cîranên xwe yên Ermenî. Carinan jî diziya kurdên ne hemîdi û elewiyan dikirin. Ji ber vê rewşa xiraba aborî û ewlehiyê gelek mirov ji gundan direviyan. Di sedsala 19’emîn de li Stenbolê tenê bi deh hezaran hemalê Kurd hebûn. Ger bê lêkolîn wê bê dîtin ku, koça kurdan ya girseyî ya ber bi metropolan ve, di vî sedsalê de destpêdike. Di sedsala 19’emîn de li Stenbolê tenê bi deh hezaran hemalên Kurd hebûn. Ev kurdên xizan û nezan bi hêzin ewlehiyê yên Osmaniyan û bi Çerkesan re bûn yek û êriş birin ser Ermeniyên ku li Kûmkapiya Stenbolê ji bo mafên xwe yên neteweyî xwepêşandanek lidarxistibûn. Di van bûyeran de bi sedan ermenî hatin kuştin. Dûv re Kurdên êrişkarên qehreman(!) bi barkêşiya (hemaltî) xanên Stenbolê tên xelatkirin (li pey xwepêşandana Kûpkapiyê, gelek hemalên ermenî tên seqetkirin û ev pîşe dikeve destê kurdan ( bnr; Ermenî Tabusu, Yves ternon, Belge yayınları, rûp; 116). Serekê van hemalan Zaro Axayê bi nav û deg e.
Evdirehman Bedirxan di hejmara 28’an a Kurdistanê de der heqê Hemîdiya de van gotinan dike: “çend salek e ev alay tesîs bîn,vî zemanî de mezerreta (xirabî) ewan li welat û Milet kirî, ne qabilê tarîf e. Ne Kurd û Ermenî tenê, lakîn îro Kurdistan bûye sê mil: Ermenî, Siwarên Hemîdî û Kurdên ne Hemîdî. Îro Kurdistanê de ev sê mil bûne neyarên hevdû; hevdû talan dikin, dikujin; welat bûye mezbahayek însana.Hetta gelek Kurd û Ermeniyên waqifê hal bûyin, îttifaq dikin, zulm û istibdadê hukumetê re çarekê digerin. Kurdistanê de tu qunc nema ku sed feryadên elîm jê mesmu nebit, tu der nemane ku ji xwîna masûma sor nebit. Kes ji ruhê xwe , malê xwe ne emîn e…”

For the medieval arab authors it is a specific geographical complex inhabited by
Armenians and Kurds. According to Ibn Hawqal (10th century), the master (Sâhib)
of Zûzân was al-Dayrânî, probably Deranik, the armenian king of Vaspurakan
between the lake of Van and Mount Ararat (Ibn Hawqal, vol. 2/348).
The authordoesn’t mention any trace of kurdish presence in that region where christians make
up a great part of the local population. Three hundred years later Yâqût in the Mu’jam
al-Buldân writes about Zûzân : « This is a region located in the center of the
armenian mountains between Akhlât, Azerbaydjan, Diyâr Bakr and Mosul. Its inhabitants are Armenians (ahluhâ arman ) ; there are also some groups of Kurds (wa fîhâ tawâ’if min al-akrâd ). Ibn al-Athîr (d. 1233) (Yâqût al-Hamawî, « zûzân ») at the same period writes : Zûzân is a vast region located on the eastern border of the Tigris river in the region of Jazîrat Ibn ‘Umar. It starts at a distance covered in two halshs-00350118, version 1 - 5 Jan 2009 days from Mosul, extend to the boundaries of Khilât and ends in Azerbaydjan until the district of Salmâs.

Alevit Because I am and we are in our area had no mosque, I have in my childhood with admiration the ruins of the Armenian churches considered. Although the walls of the churches were haggard, remained domes on the pillars on which the wonderful images to be seen. My birthplace was in the Kurdish language "Kizilkilise" Red Church. But like all the Kurdish name was also in Kizilkilise Turkish Nazimiye umbenannt.Meine childhood was shaped by two events. For one, this was the Dersim massacre that is still very fresh and very painful, since it took place and in 1937/38 to 70,000 Kurds by the Turkish army were killed. The second was the Armenian Genocide, adopted by the Turkish army in the years 1915-16 has been carried out and where both one and half million Armenians as well as half a million Assyrians were exterminated.
In the winter months, I have received from the people in my place of birth often heard these two events. We cried to the painful plight of the Armenian neighbors. To Anatolia a people, one nation, one state, a Sunni faith to allow the Turkish regime would clearly only the Armenians and Assyrians from the world, then the Kurds.
General Kazim Karabekir, against the Armenian and Assyrian peoples in the war, said: "Bu yandan zo zo lari, dönünce de lo lo isini Larin bitirecegiz." That means we are to the east during the invasion, the Armenians, on the way back to exterminate the Kurds.
Thus, I would say quite clearly that there is always a strategic state ideology of Turkey was only the Christian peoples, Armenians, Assyrians, and Greeks from Turkey and Turkey is a Islamic state to make, then the remaining non-Turkish people the Kurds with their genocide and Ethnozid out of the way to create.
To implement this policy, the Turkish rulers of the people always played off against one another, deep hatred and large gaps between the peoples caused the hostility who are. Therefore, the Kurdish feudal lords of this Turkish policy is a very welcome tool and that it is today.
Therefore, the Turkish regime in Nordkurdistan some Sunni tribes, which immediately upon Armenians and Assyrians living in Mesopotamia, used for their cause. This Aschirets (strains) were only in the field Van, Urfa, Agri, Bingol and Mus, and they have been called Hasenen, Cibran, Zirkan, Sipkan, Zilan, Milan Aschirets etc. These are only a minority of Kurds, the regime has neither the Cooperation with Alevi Kurds still ezidischen and many other Sunni Kurds can get.
These were Aschirets sharply against Christians and they have made on behalf of the Turkish state and Islam were killed. We, the Kurds see that today's massacre of Armenians as a disgrace for the Kurdish people. I am ashamed that the Kurds their neighbors in this way have barbarically killed.
In the shadow of World War I. The Turks under Enver Pasha, Talat and Cemal with the approval and knowledge of Germany, the Christenpogrom in Anatolia and Mesopotamia before the eyes of the world organized. It was the first genocide in human history, precisely planned and had been carried out.
But we must also consider other side of the coin. These rags Brigades, which Turkey from 36 Kurdish tribes had recruited, according to the massacre of the Christian peoples, and also against Alevi ezidische (not Muslim) are Kurds. The regiments were exclusively from the Sunni tribes in Nordkurdistan formed.
This means that the young Turkish regime (Ittihat Terakki) in order to divide working towards the Kurds, according to the principle of "divide and rule" policy, better off against them. This was between Sunni and Alevi Kurds up continued today, causing enmity insurmountable.
The Hamidiye regiments were village guards as of today against the Kurds instrumentalised. Through the formation of such regiments was also the emergence of consciousness prevented Kurdish independence. This fact does not matter whether Armenians or Assyrians or Kurds but against itself, remains a blot on the Kurdish history.
Those Bandit, of Kurdish origin, yesterday Armenian villages attacked and killed people, now holds nothing back in order to kill his peers. Without doubt, one might wonder whether someone because others want it, can kill people?
Yes, the history of mankind is full of such happenings. Only about 50 years ago was the German fascism, the Jewish people to destroy industrial nature. This opinion after the victims were to blame! It relies on the Hitler Kemalists, those masters of genocide against the Armenians and Assyrians, and said about: The Kemalists have massacred the Armenians, the world has been seen. If I massacre the Jews, who will do something about that?
On this basis, he took the second largest genocide of the twentieth century.
The Turkish state is now the Kurds to their fellow countrymen to fight. As before, the Brigades were Hamidiye today to light Korucu-founded village guards gangs, whose number amounts to over 100,000. They are fighting against the Kurdish liberation movement, the guerrillas, who also are Kurds, and for freedom and prosperity and to fight all kinds of sacrifices, and in the mountains for their lives.
The mentality which yesterday massacred Armenians and Assyrians, Kurds can now massacre.
The Kurds in Dersim, despite pressure from the Turks, the Armenians who lived in their area, but not delivered protected. This protection of the Armenians were the Kurds of Dersim expensive later on, since the submission of Dersim in the year 1937/38 a punitive expedition of the Turkish state was.
Turkey is a multi-ethnic state. There live Turks, Kurds, Armenians, Assyrians and other minorities. Although Turkey internatonalen almost all agreements and
- The Universal Declaration of Human Rights
- The European Convention on the Conservation of Human Rights
- The CSCE Final Act, in the equal rights of peoples and their right to self-determination and for all the right to education in their mother tongue is recognized, had signed, they are daily violated human rights. And she wants with this witness in the EU.
The Armenian people was through the policy of Turkey in Anatolia exterminated. We, the Kurds want to share with our neighbors, Armenians, Assyrians and Turks live together peacefully. We want a country in which the sound of the church bell and the call of the muezzin are side by side.
We are no longer the Kurds, the tool of Turkey and their Christian neighbors eradicated. We are ashamed of us and would therefore do everything well.

Sonra insanlık için uğursuz yıllar geliyor. I.Dünya Savaşı başlıyor. Almanya, Türkiye’yi saflarında tutmak için, İstanbul’daki Sultan’a “Kutsal Cihad” açtırır. Ve bugün bazı bilim adamları iddia eder ki; Kutsal Cihad plan ve programı, Berlin’de son detaylarına kadar hazırlanıp İttihat ve Terakki paşaları Talat, Enver ve Cemal’e verilir.
Siz Ermeni doktor, tüccar, sarraf, sanatçı, fabrikatör, yani burjuvazi zengin hayat sürdürürken, bir gün kapınıza asker ve polis dayandı. Önce genç erkekleri toplayıp askere aldılar, sonra çoluk, cocuk, kadın, erkek, yaşlı genç yola düşürüldünüz. Nereye gideceğinizi bile bilemeden, binler, on binler, yüz binler İstanbul, İzmir, Ege ve tekmil Anadolu’dan yola çıkarıldınız.
Yozgat ve Çorum tarafından geçirilen kafilelere, Türk köylüleri saldırırken, Türk askeri üç maymunu oynadı. Kestiler Ermenileri, biçtiler, altın dişten, bileziğe velhasıl ne varsa öldürerek aldılar. Aylarca sürdü yürüyüş, ne yıkandılar, ne yediler. Kafile doğuya giderken, ya Türk köylüsünün katliamı, ya da insan gücünün sonuna gelindiğinden sayı giderek azaldı.
Kürdistan’a girişleri de utanç vericiydi. Bugünün korucuları olan o zamanın “Hamidiye Alayları”, çapulcu şerefsizler, bazı Kürt aşiretlerinden devşirilen katiller saldırdılar, Van’da, Kemah’ta ve başka yerlerde Sultan ve İslam Halifesi adına katlettiler. Bunlar utancımızdır. İnsan olduğuna inanan her Kürt utanır bu çapulcu eşkıyaların yaptıklarından.
Kimi bir buçuk milyon, kimi az veya çok gördü bu sayıyı. Ama Türk devleti tarihte ilk planlı programlı katliama imazısını attı. Suriye çöllerine sürülenler koleradan öldüler. Dünya seyretti. Katliam savaşın gölgesinde yapıldı. Aynen Dersim gibi. Dersimliler Ermenileri nispeten korumuşlardı. Ermeniler Alevi olmuş, komşusu Kürtler gibi yaşıyordu. Kemalist devlet: “Sen misin bana Ermeniyi teslim etmeyen?” dediği için Dersim’den öfkesini 70.000 kişi katlederek aldı.
Komşumuz Ermeniler nerede? Kivramız semerci Hüsnü, Agop arkadaşımız? Bir halkı bu şekilde tarih sahnesinden silmek hangi kitaba sığar? Kur’an’da var mı bu insafsızlık? Türk devleti Osmanlıyla övünüyor, ünleniyor, ama Ermeni katliamını görmüyor? Üstelik mağdur, maktul Ermeniyi suçlu yapıyor.
Ben çocukken bizim oralarda Ermeni kiliseleri vardı, hamamları, mezbahaları vardı. Kiliseler yerlebir edildi. Ermeni ve Kürt isimler Türkçeleştirildi. Kızılkilise, Nazımiye yapıldı, Hakis Yayladere ve benim Türkçesini bilmediğim Xarik, Markasor vb ne yapıldılar, bilmiyorum.
Alman faşizmi, Türklerin Ermeni katliamını kendisine örnek aldı. Türkiye, savaşların gölgesinde önce Hıristiyan halkları ortadan kaldırdı, sonra mızrağın ucunu Kürtlere çevirdi. Böylece aldılar mazlumun ahını, öldürdüler milyonları. General Kazım Karabekir: “Giderken zo zo’ları, dönerken lo lo’ları temizleyeceğiz.”dedi. Gerçekten de önce Ermeniler, ardından Kürtler geldi. Bu ahı alanlar rahat edecekler mi? Milyonlarca Ermeninin ahı aheste aheste çıkmaz mı? Almanya katlettiği Yahudi halkından defalarca özür diledi. Türkiye ise, bu katliamı bir türlü kabul etmek istemiyor. Katilin haklılığı gibi bir davranış içindedir. Bir de katliamcı paşalarını onore ediyor. İttihat ve Terakki’nin Türk İslam sentezi bugün daha da katmerli sürdürülüyor.
Oysa Ermeniler topraklarında yaşayıp işinde gücünde olsalardı, ticaret, tarım ve endüstride ileri olan bu halk, Anadolu halklarına ışık tutacak onları aydınlatabilecekti. Gözü dönmüş Türk İslam sentezciler bunu göremezdi. Üstelik Türkiye; faşist, ırkçı Türk-İslam sentezini Kemalizm ile bütünleştirirken, dünyaya entegre olma olanağını da kaybediyor. 90 yıl önce Anadolu ve Mezopotamyadan Ermeni insanının çığlıkları yükseldi. En azından insan olan bu çığlığa saygılı olur. İzmir’de yaşayan Ermeni doktor, İstanbul’da sarraf, Bursa’da tüccar, Afyon’da manifaturacı, hatta Türk ordusunda subay, sanatçı, kültür insanı, dünyayı Türklerden daha iyi algılayan bu insanlar Ermeni oldukları için katledildiler. Bir buçuk milyon çığlık, rahatsız etmez mi sizi? O halde ne yaptınız? www.haydar-isik.com
