With one hour of delay on the calendar envisaged, the chief of RA contemplated one minute in front of the Armenian Memorial of Paris, symbolized by the statue of Komitas. A spontaneous demonstration of approximately thousand people, with the cries of " votch, votch! (not, not!) did not obstruct the president who always preserved his smile.

1,000 people?!?!?! Video seems more like a few hundred. AP reports "at least 200-300," which in media speak means not more than 300. And that's from a Paris population of about 200,000 ethnic Armenians.

A, true, but bear in mind that this is just 0.1 percent of the Paris ethnic Armenian population. The Diaspora as a term is often misused. Most ethnic Armenians living abroad have nothing to do with Diaspora structures or their communities.

Wherever SS appears, the police beat people up. Talk about bad karma.

People up here: Turks proved themselves in 1915, and exposed their real faces in front of the world. If this 100% historical proof is not enough for you, you'll see another proof after opening the border.. And then, as you live in Armenia, you'd become the ones who'd leave their homes and become spyurq, and then you or your descendants will appreciate the efforts of these 100 or 1000 people ... But again, it'll be late!
