Sunday, 03 February 2013 00:46

Dear Pax Turcica members and friends,

We kindly ask you to register and sign the White House petition calling President Obama to commemorate the 21st anniversary of the Khojaly Massacre with a Presidential message.

On the night of February 25-26, 1992, Armenian forces, supported by Russia’s 366th motorized infantry regiment, occupied the Azerbaijani town of Khojaly and brutally massacred its fleeing residents. 613 civilians including 106 women, 63 children and 70 elders were tortured to death in a freezing cold, up to 2,000 were reported missing.

This will only take less than a minute of your time, but will help recognize the horrific war crime committed by Armenian forces against the innocent Azerbaijani Turkic civilians.

On the Upcoming Presidential Elections
Wednesday, 31 October 2012 17:13

Several of our members asked us for our recommendations for the November 6 Election. TurkishPAC’s articles of incorporation states that “The Corporation shall not concern itself with the political issues that are inherent to the internal and/or international political operations of the USA or Turkish Governments, otherwise not related to the defense of the Turkish Heritage”. We must therefore base our recommendations only to issues that are  related to the defense of the Turkish Heritage.

Based on the above, we recommend that you consider voting for the politicians who are members of the Congressional Turkish Caucus and supported by TurkishPAC. Names and districts of the Turkish Congressional Caucus members are provided below:

Honorable Culberson's Letter
Thursday, 03 March 2011 19:23

 

TurkishPAC received a letter from the USA Congressional District 7 Representative Honorable John Culberson on February 24, 2011, which states that he fully supports our opposition to the Congressional Armenian Genocide Resolutions and declares that he plans to vote against such resolutions if they come to the house floor. Honorable Culberson wrote that

"[b]etween 1915 and 1923, brutal fighting took place between Armenian and Ottoman Turks over the future of Anatolia. While Armenian authorities allege that up to 1.5 million Armenians were killed and another 500,000 were forcibly removed in ethnic cleansing, this view is not universally shared by scholars. Nearly a hundred years have passed since these alleged crimes took place, yet they still create significant controversy. Since this is a divisive historical question, experts should debate the merits of the genocide designation, not members of the United States House of Representatives. Furthermore, since Turkey is a close friend of the United States and an important ally in the Global War on Terror, there is no reason to unnecessarily provoke the emotions of the Turkish Public.
