Prof Justin McCarthy
“Prejudice, Deception, and the Armenian Question”

For those who study the troubled history of relations between Turks and Armenians,
the question naturally arises, “How could so many have been so wrong?” Why did Europeans
and Americans at the time, and still today, believe a story of persecution that is demonstrably wrong?
The answer lies in ignorance, prejudice, and deception. Ignorance made politicians and
editors, then and today, believe whatever fit their prejudices. And prejudice caused them
to ignore the facts before them. Instead, they accepted the often deliberate falsehoods
spread by Armenian rebels and their supporters. This presentation offers examples of
the deceptions that lie behind what is commonly believed of the Armenian Question.
