Federation of Armenian Organisations in the Netherlands demands Time Magazine apology for misleading Turkish information
In Time Magazine of June 6 a DVD of Turkish Chamber of Commerce (ATO) is attached to a number of advertisement pages for Turkey as the holiday country, a DVD including a large scale collection of propaganda material denying the Armenian Genocide. Film shots as well as documents present the well known twisting and denying stories, and an illustrious company of genocide denialists as Mac Carthy and Halacoglu, prosecuted in Switzerland for denying the Armenian genocide, make statements of the well known kind.
The Federation cannot imagine how a quality magazine like Time could have added such a DVD to the 494 thousand copies of Time, intended for the European market. The Federation protests against this sort of misleading information and demands Time Magazine at least apology on the front page of next week issue.
Turkey will not impress Europe with this rearguard action and propaganda DVD, since for most European Countries the Armenian Genocide is a fact, politically as well as scientifically spoken.
See below the protest letter of the Federation of Armenian Organisation in
To the Editor of Time Magazine
Dear Madam, Sir,
The Federation of Armenian Organisations in the Netherlands and it's 24 April Committee are astonished by the fact that how a quality magazine like Time could have added a free DVD as tourist information for Turkey, which however practically exclusively contains misleading historical information, namely obvious distortion of historical facts in favour of denial of the Armenian Genocide. According to our information this DVD is distributed this week to 494 thousand subscribers of Time Magazine in Europe.
The Federation protests against this misinformation and demands Time Magazine at least apology on the front page of next week issue. We also ask you to withdraw the copies from the retailers.
Although the DVD is not made by Time Magazine, we hold Time Magazine responsible for this very unwanted present.
Waiting for your reaction.
