They argue that the Armenians were an enemy force and that their slaughter was a necessary war measure, but the real reason that Turkey still denies it is most likely because they want to avoid paying reparations and being publicly shamed. The Armenian genocide has been thoroughly studied and documented by genocide scholars and the historical record is most definitely unambiguous. Only in 1997 did the International Association of Genocide Scholars declare unanimously that the Turkish massacres of over one million Armenians was a crime of genocide. Many other countries have decided to public declare that the Armenian massacres by the Turks was a genocide, namely France, Russia, etc., but the United States have yet join. The reason that the United States is so reluctant to publicly acknowledged this genocide is because they have a huge airbase in Turkey that they desperately need for their wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The Turks felt that the Armenians would betray them while Emperor Qianlong wanted to punish the rebellion by Prince Amursana of the Dzungar. Both genocides also ended with the significant loss of one’s population. Finally, they both share the fact that they are considered forgotten. We should learn from others’ pasts so we can learn to not make the same mistakes. Everyone must try to remember these horrible events, because if we chose to ignore that they ever happened, they could happen
To What Extent was Ariel Sharon Responsible for the Sabra and Shatila Massacre? Abstract This essay will discuss the extent to which Ariel Sharon was responsible for the Sabra and Shatila massacre. The massacre occurred during the 1982 Lebanon War, or Operation Peace for Galilee as Israel called it. The essay will concentrate on the different factors that could have caused this massacre, including Ariel Sharon’s position during the Lebanon War. In order to write such an essay, its investigation will introduce the topic by discussing the situation in Lebanon before 1982, during the civil war, and the causes for Israel’s early involvement in the Lebanon War.
That massacre sparked the idea for tighter gun laws. These are the types of actions that we would see occur in the world if we chose to forget all the bad memories of society. Do you remember the atrocities of the first and second world war? What if you never learnt about these heinous acts of cruelty? We would continually see more large wars occurring because society would decide that the mistakes made in the past aren’t worth remembering.
However, the Armenian Genocide has been declared a “genocide” only in 29 countries around the world and outlawed by just 4, while major world powers, such as the USA and the UK, refuse to use this term. The nation responsible for the Armenian massacres has obtained a policy of denial and prohibits the use of the term “genocide”. The European Court of Human Rights recently stated that the denial of the Armenian genocide by a Turkish representative is a “valid opinion” and persecuting him for his opinion would be a “violation of his human rights”. These two crimes against humanity are treated in a differently, but they still significantly resemble each other. The Holocaust and the Armenian Genocide are similar, because they happened under very similar circumstances: they both resulted because of a nation’s governmental policies supporting the supremacy of a sole race, both utilized effective national propaganda, and both characterized with using especially brutal methods to demolish the targeted
Therefore, it is partly the extremists fault in a case where they intentionally killed people to get justice, because no one, not even a criminals deserve to be killed in an extremely harsh way. But when they were forced to do so, its “do or die” scenario, its barely the person’s
Perhaps this lack of clear image and empathy is the main reason why many leaders in Europe do not accept refugees from Syria. They see them as potential security threats that would bring radical Islam into the heart of Europe. However, these Syrian refugees are mostly innocent in the first place as they themselves are the ones escaping the terrorists. There are practically no logical reasons for them to commit terroristic crimes. It is indeed true that one of the suspects of the recent Paris Attack was a Syrian Refugee, but we cannot truly generalize people just because one person out of thousands and millions has done something unforgivable.
As a result, when Ender had been the commander of the troops that wiped them out, humans rejoiced. However, the catch is that Ender had been manipulated into committing this act of genocide. He did not even know he was killing the buggers; however, people like John Kessel want to blame him. John Kessel wrote the article, “Creating the Innocent Killer,” which talks about how Ender committed genocide and came out not only hands clean, but also a hero. Kessel also blames and attacks Orson Scott Card for putting Ender in a situation to “trick” people into thinking that Ender is innocent by putting him in situations to look like the victim.
Also, she may have friends and family who would suffer immensely due to her death, though the above is not mentioned in the movie. Looking at all the above bad effects of the killing, it can be inferred that this is morally wrong from the consequential viewpoint. 4 The non-consequentialist view is that Judah arranging for a hit man itself
New provisions should be inserted in the Protection of Human Rights Act, 1993 which empowers the Human Rights Commissions to grant compensation or even immediate interim relief to the victims or members of their family, for violations of Human Rights. 15.
