Lewis stated that after fully researching the matter that there is no doubt many Armenians were killed but they were not subjected to a planned and systematic genocide perpetrated by the highest Ottoman orders.
Nobody is denying Armenians died that is a fact, the problem is with determing this as a genocide, another problem is totally overlooking the fact that more Turks died in that war in which there was a revolution, a World Empire Crumbled and 20-30 states were created.
The majority of the Armenian claims are nonsense and have no historical credibility, once the surface is scratched the material is more than wobbly.
There are alot of non-Turkish historians who are now beginning to state with facts to back it up that the events cannot be called "genocide".
When the Holocoust Tribunal was carried out do you realise how much evidence there was? there was not a few suspect documents, there was not a few dubious accounts there were literally thousands upon thousands of hard-core evidence.
Infact alot of material was even rejected as it didn't meet the standards for a court of law, for example the Armenian claims of Hitlers phrases about the Armenians, that was rejected by the courts because it was a fabrication and wouldn't stand up in the court of law.
The sad part is the Armenian side totally rejects the idea that Turks suffered in the war and prior to it, millions were ethnically cleansed from the Caucauses and Balkans, this is only starting to be researched by the West after all these years.
Now we can carry on arguing here but its just going to get Serdar's thread closed like the countless other threads that have been closed.
