I sure wish that these immigrants wouldn't come here and bring their old tribal conflicts with them! Come here, become an American and get offer stuff that happened to your great grandmothers.

What a shame. Attacks on churches. What's next the people. Turkey committed the Armenian Genocide and is responsible for breeding these vandals.

I think that whoever did paint the Turkish flag on the wall of the church was obviously trying to provoke more anger from the Armenians. Many of my friends are Armenian and through recent talks with them they have felt less resenment towards Turks, but with events like this occuring it is hard to forgive and forget.

You need to get yourself educated with the world history before you place any comments.

PS: Take a look at articles in this week's and last week's Daily News and see how many fraud and drug arrests are from folks of Armenian decent.

Here's one from today:
Credit card skimmers arrested in two gas station heists...Armenians

Yeah, a real great group of people...I shed zero tears.

I'm educated in world history, and I don't see any problem with INS's statement. Perhaps you should offer correction if you see a misake. Otherwise, your words are empty rhetoric and baseless ad hominem attack.

The fact is, this supposed "genocide" happened a century back in history and there is a lot of debate as to what actually happened. I also agree with INS that immigrants need to get over old conflicts that do nothing but divide people. If you want to fight over old history -- go back to your old country and do it there.

Flush YOUR knowledege of world history down the toilet and start from the begining, especially the genocide that took place in 1915.

I guess you enjoy the fact that Turkey has bought out all of America's politicians. You have a personal biased against Armenians and its evident in the way you're posting your moronic messages. This is not a 'tribal conflict' and you calling that one makes you an uneducated moron. I guess the Jews bought their 'tribal conflict' to America when the Holocaust happened, right? That's why all of America recognizes and educates the masses about it today? Your lack of education on this event coupled with your distaste for Armenians clearly puts you on the side of Islamic Extremism. I would rather die a thousand times than to see Turkey bitch-slap America the way it does over this issue. Bend over, I'm sure Turkey would love to rape this country's integrity and its because of idiots like you that they get to spit in America's face every time we say something they don't like. You should be ashamed of yourself.

That's exactly why I said you need to educate yourself with world history! Obviously you need to check your archives from the 1915 era and then make a decision. Whether you recognize it or not, it's your prerogative. An average american doesn't know where France is on the world map to know the world history. My advice to you: Educate yourself!

I'll pit my education against yours any day of the week, princess. I know what went down in 1915, and as I said, you need to get over what happened to your great grandmother. Nobody cares what happened to Armenians nearly 100 years ago and the facts are disputed. Were you alive back then? LOL

The other commenter is right on, go back to your own country if you want argue about old political conflicts in history. You especially should leave since you have such a low opinion of Americans. My impression is that your native kids back home need an "educated" person like you.*smirk*

BTW, most Americans know there's not much need to find France on a map because France is a washed up failure and insignificant in world politics today. My bet is you can't even find Armenia or the USA on map. So get get an education! LOL

First of all, you're an idiot for generalizing. I'm an Armenian American and I would die for this country a thousand times before I let it get slapped around by some self-conscious country half way around the world. You could care less about the integrity of America and the values of truth and justice that all of our vets fought for. Stop trying to undermine everything that happened in 1915. If you were educated on the issue, you wouldn't even suggest that the 'facts are disputed' because the facts are explicit for all to see. You've got a simple bias that's coupled with your blatant disregard for history and lack of sensitivity on issues regarding genocide. You're a prejudice prick.

I'm sure this is the same person that posted the original comment about your donations. You're a bigot, plain and simple.
