  1. And this is relevant because? Kim Kardashian is a celebrity for what? Come on people raise the bar, have some standards.

  2. Dear Vagharshak,
    In politics sometimes -when necessary-these also are taken advantage  of.If millions follow her in ,or on twitter, then OUR CAUSE IS BEING BROADCAST TO MILLIONS,WHICH IS A PLUS indeed!!!!
    Take care

  3. Dear Shantagioum,
    I think what Vagharshak is trying to say is there is a time and place for everything. The Armenian Genocide has no place in tabloid journalism. Just imagine organizing a dinner dance “celebrating” the Armenian Genocide, do you think this would be appropriate? I for one would not want my cause to be broadcast this way.

  4. Vagharshak and Khosrovidukht; I seem to agree with you both as the Armenian Genocide and the memory of our beloved martyrs’ memory have been for 95 years and shall remain forever in a very respectful and a solumn place in our hearts and in our memories.  And it shall never ever be cheapen ever.

  5. So, from your comments, I should understand that Kim Kardashian does not have the right to answer a denialist just because of what. She did not go on a campaign expressing an opinion, the comment came to her on her twitter and she gave that person a good answer. You may or may not agree with the way the became a celebrity, that’s her life. What are you all complaining about! 

  6. VAHN, THAT GOES TO SHOW THAT WE STILL HAVE ALONG WAY TO GO TO GRASP THAT POLITICS ARE A DIFFERENT GENRE OF INTELÑLECTUALISM.IN SHORT WE LACK THE CAPABILITY TO MAKE USE  OF THE MASS MEDIA.INDEED SHE IS NOT A ….BUT A CELEBRITY LIKE ANY OTHER AND WHAT SHE ACHIEVED-THOUGH  ON A DIFFERENT PEDESTAL OR PODIUM WAS TO A VAST  NUMBER  OF IGNORANT PEOPLE AS TO OUR CAUSE.PEOPLE WHO OTHERWISE WOULD NOT HAVE ANY IDEA WHAT THESE ARMENIANS WANT WHAT THEY HAVE SUFFERED ETC., WHICH AGAIN GOES TO SHOW THAT WE NEED COOPERATION ON ALL LEVELS .I THINK I HAVE EXPRESSED QUITE CLEARLY…FOR THOSE WHO CAN FOLLOW THE TREND OF PRESENT DAY DIPLOMACY AND ITS INTRICACIES.AN EXAMPLE?
    WHEN OUR POLITICAL PARTIES  ADVOCATED,NAY TRUMPETED RE OUR CAUSE AFTER GENOCIDE AND HAVING GATHERED SOME -VERY LITTLE-CLOUT BY JUST  THAT ADVOCACY ALL FELL  ON DEAF EARS INCLUSIVE  OF INT´L INSTANCES  U.N ETCBUT WHEN THE “khent”ARMENIAN KIDS TOOK IT TO CENTRE STAGES IT WAS BLASTED OVER WORLD T.V.´S MEDIA YOU NAME .THOUGH IT IS IN NOWAY IN ACCORDANCE WITH LAW ABIDING AND CONSERVATIVE PEOPLE AND NOT REALLY A PLAUSIBLE WAY..NEVERTHELESS THE WORLD PUBLIC OPINION-UNFORTUNATELY  AND IN EXTENSION DIPLOMACY AND   AND OFFICIALDOME -IMMEDIATELY WERE ALERTED  THAT  THE ARMENIAN  CAUSE  STILL EXISTS AND IS NOT BURIED.NONETHELESS,THEY STOPPED  IT WHEN THE NK ISSUE COMMENCED AND THEY JOINED  WITH THE FREEDOM FIGHTERS ATNK.ALSO THEY NEVER TARGETED THE PUBLIC BUT …YOU KNOW THE REWST.
    BEST TO ALL

  7. Hye, thank you Kim Kardashian.  I welcome your ‘voice’ to bring out further world awareness of so many who have not knowledge of the Turkish Genocide of the Christian Armenian nation.  As so many of us know, that most of the American medias, here in USA; even the world, omit full impact of the denials by Turks of the Ottoman Turkish mentality  and the continued Turk leaderships ongoing denials over years since the early 20th century is not fully known.  It is for the world to know, to recognize, sadly,  had the Turks been made to face their guilt, paid their reparations to the Armenians, that the cycle of Genocides shall have ended.  None of the Genocides that followed shall have been perpetrated by the despots – none of the millions since shall have been slaughtered, raped, kidnapped, placed in their churches which were set afire, victims soles of their feet were beaten until bloody – then to burst  – ala Turkish ‘mode’. indescribable cruelties… Survivors shall have not have their lives destroyed, horrendous memories to remain with them all the days of their lives.  If the Turks had been brought to justice…. then surely, all the Genocides that followed the Turkish Genocide of the Armenian nation shall not been!  Too, it should be recognized that the Sudanese today, too, are denying their Sudanese Genocide of the Darfurians – following the example of the Turkish policy of denials – sadly, Genocides continue… Hence, until the Turks are brought to justice, their guilt recognized for the destruction of an advanced peoples’ nation who had much to offer to humanity, as opposed to the example of Genocides to be the route for despots with convoluted goals to ‘steal’ nations, to steal ‘cultures’…
    The world’s civilized nations, together, should end Genocides.  The world’s civilized nations, together, shall ‘attack’ any Genocide perpetrators – whether that perpetrator is a foe or an ‘ally’ – only then. together,  shall cycle of the Genocides end on our planet. Again, thanks Kim, furthering/voicing the issue of the Genocides and our need for nations to join to prevent it continuance anywhere, anytime, by anyone.  Too, the ancient and advanced nation of the Armenians shall have been amongst the nations today who shall have offered  advances to mankind, as the nation of Armenia, even today aspires to  – rather than the mentality of destroying nations/peoples as the Turks – still in their Ottoman mentality, attack/take what they deem they deserve…Manooshag
     
     

  8. We should be proud
    That we have Armenian Celebrity
    Like Kardashian=Yeghparian
    Added to many inventors.
    Every one is birthed to imagine:
    Hence to dance, sing and write…etc
    Every one is birthed for something
    Not to insult, hit and kill. 
    Thus to recognoce every genocide.

  9. I agree with Sylva 100%. Guys don’t be so sceptic and embrace this, you might not be a fan of who she is or what she does, but she does help us in a very good way. We could use anything in a time when we need help of the whole world to recognise the Armenian Genocide!
