Kim Kardashian: My family and I are incredibly proud of our heritage. My dad taught me a lot about Armenian culture, and I have a strong connection with my roots.  Every year, I honor the memory of the martyrs who were killed during the 1915 Armenian Genocide. Even though so many countries around the world recognize the Genocide, the government of Turkey still denies it.

It happened before Rwanda, Darfur, and the Holocaust. Maybe none of those other genocides would have happened if more nations had condemned the Armenian Genocide, when 1.5 million Armenians were massacred.

Some people might wonder why I’m talking about history on my blog. And that’s what I’m trying to show…it’s not history. Until this crime is resolved truthfully and fairly, the Armenian people will live with the pain of what happened to their families and the fear of what might happen again to their homeland. So out of respect for all those innocent people that died, I’m putting a spotlight on it today.

Today, thousands of Armenians will come together in Los Angeles to protest against the denial of the genocide and urge the United States government to recognize the Armenian Genocide. I hope that I can bring some attention to this today.

And, this year, April 24 falls on Easter Sunday. Armenians are the first Christian Nation in the world, and almost everyone will be in church to celebrate Easter. Even on this really happy day, we’re going to be remembering the Genocide.

There’s going to be a National Day of Prayer in churches across America to celebrate Easter and commemorate the Genocide.

My thoughts and prayers are with all my fellow Armenians on this really important day. I stand proud with you always.

    What a weirdo and a loser.....taking old folk stories and attempting to turn them into basis for genocide? You should be ashamed of yourself.

    WAY TO GO KIM! So proud to see you do the right thing... Unlike Koby Bryant of the Lakers, who seems to think that everything is always all about MONEY, MONEY, MONEY! re: His recent Turkish Airlines ad participation, 51% owned by their government who has always been on a denial campaign on the issue of the Armenian Genocide committed by their predecessors the Turks of the Ottoman Empire between 1895 and 1923. Very disappointing and frustrating! Once again Obama's speech yesterday fell short of delivering his promise and to fully call it as is was... A GENOCIDE!!! Turns out Obama’s Circle of cronies are identical to Bush's and Clinton's before that and so on! By that I mean his advisors; the same Zionists that are so powerful in this country that they manage, conduct, tutor, handle and dictate all administrations alike... The ADL, AIPAC, all the so called 'think tanks' shape and mold American politics and especially foreign policies. They always side with the Turks impeding the advancement of all Armenian issues and interests! And so it goes on; regardless of who the tenant of the White House is, D or R, Zionists and Israel will always have the advantage and will benefit. Whereas Armenians and Armenia will always suffer and be stepped all over... Even the few Jew Congressmen (Schiff, Sherman, etc…) who on the surface, seem to be fighting with vigor to advance our issues, are probably advised by the same organizations I mentioned above. Aaaaaaaah, THE BIG PICTURE… Which has been painted a long time ago! The bottom line to them all is to hold on to their seats term after term after term, in order to continue contributing towards a stronger Israel and pushing forward it’s causes. And they get re-elected by getting our ‘naïve’ Armenian votes… How? By simply showing the 'hard' work they do for us in Congress, or in so called ‘Town Hall’ gimmicks… But if anything materialized or advances as far as a major full floor vote, the same Turkey-ally-Zionist-organizations will use their vast influence and see to it that nothing in favor of Armenians will ever pass. We the Armenians have to have larger representation in Congress, that is if we are serious about accomplishing our goals, rather than relying on the Jews to ‘pretend’ to do our work and keep getting our votes, stay in power and in reality, keep pushing Jewish agendas forcefully down the throats of the oblivious American people. Less than 2% of the population of the USA are Jews, but in Congress the percentage rises to 12-15%. In order to succeed, more Armenians have to take interest in politics, PROFESSIONALLY.

    Dear Kardeshian 3 Is it just a coincidence that while Armenian population is continually decreasing due to external migration of the workless countrymen, the diaspora Armenians are living in high standarts in Europe and USA and wealthy? And is it not interesting that instead of providing financial help for their countrymen, they spend huge amounts of money to keep Turkish hatred alive and aggravate enmity against Turkey and every kind of thing that has even any little relationship with a Turk? Is it not amusing that it is this enemy Turkey and the Turks who provided work for more than 100 000 illegal workers of Armenia who entered Turkey up till now, unlike the wealthy diaspora Armenians who are in deep love with their country and countrymen? Therefore, it is inevitable to remember Churchill’s saying: ‘If a dispute arises between ‘today’ and ‘yesterday’, we lose ‘tomorrow’. The Armenians and the Armenian diaspora, unfortunately are not aware that they are losing their ‘tomorrow’. In a novel of a Turkish novelist Selim İleri, a character says: ‘I killed you, while I was trying to present you my endless love’. The Armenians and Armenia are slowly killing themselves, while they are trying to express their endless love towards themselves and their grandparents, unfortunately including you dear Kardeshian. ….Moreover, those who support the Armenians in their inability to move forward from 1915 are in close cooperation with them to lose their tomorrow and share the crime of this ordinary murder stemming from a confusion of love and hatred. Unfortunately being American politicians ..

    Dear Kardeshian, cont 2 It is apparent that each one of the above event is a subject of a novel, a cinema or a documentary film or an essay. However, why are they not the Turks but the Armenians who prefer to mourn for the events of 90 years ago continually, through novels, films, memories etc and spend extreme effort to keep these memories alive, as if they have rehappened every new day’s morning? And why do the Turks not foster hatred towards the nations or people who make business cooperations with the Armenians and Armenia but why is it the Armenians who get angry with and foster hatred towards the people who make business cooperations with the Turks and Turkey? It is not surprising that the Armenians fiercefully reject suggestions of Turkey to discuss these events in Joint Commissions made up of Armenian, Turkish historians and historians from other countries. Because they fear even of having a look at these events from other perspectives and therefore losing the freedom of their imagination to consider them. They seem to have liked the label of ‘a victim’ and do not want to lose it; or do not want to realize that the Turks were also victims; victims of the Armenians!

    as an armenian girl, i don't care what people say about kim kardashian and that she's famous for no reason, i love her because she honestly represents the beauty of armenian women and she clearly does know about her history. she has a strong family, and i'm glad to know she really isn't a bimbo. i admire her, i've written multiple papers in high school and now in college on the genocide, and i am glad that someone like her can bring attention to an important issue. i know is was almost one hundred years ago, but if it is not resolved by then, the armenian people in the united states, canada, and all over the world will react in uproar until turkey admits the truth. they literally SKIP teaching what happened in the year of 1915 when teaching history, hence leaving out an important part of history that needs to be resolved. POWER TO YA KIM <3

    Good for you Kim for standing up for your peaples rights. The only reason United States does not recognise the Armenian GENOCIDE is because Turkey is an important military base for them. So much for human right America ! Sam

    Kim, you're awesome! This does a great job explaining the relevance of the denial to us all today, and what a crime the Turkish government is committing.

    Thank you Kim for standing up for your beliefs and putting that spotlight on such an important issue. It is so sad that people feel that because this happened in the early part of last century that we must simply forgive and forget. That is another part of genocide, a white genocide that helps erase the memory of all the atrocities. To this day Turkey prevails as a country which denies human rights. And "hey" since when is deportation humane? Please read some books, it may clear up your blurred mind. Happy Easter Kim.

    Maybe your an idiot ^ and if it happened to your god damn country or religion you would be writing the same thing as Kim.

  • hey

    maybe the Turkish government denies it because it didn't happen. those people died from hard conditions while they were being deported.

    God blesses those, who use their given blessings to bring good and do good to the world. We are very proud of you and this just cements your status. If more of the many super famous armenians... ''Mr Agassi''..embraced their heritage and were proud of it, it may help to shine more light on this issue and bring it to a resolution....All the best and happy Easter to your entire family!
