Eilian Williams continues with his increasingly insane campaignMay 28 2010 at 8:55 PM
Response to This "petition"...
He is seriously proposing the EU and America give "only" 1.2 billion pounds sterling to some unnamed organisation (the Armenian patriarchate in Istanbul?) to rebuild 500 unnamed, congregationless, Armenian churches in Turkey! And another 1.2 billion pounds to try and convert enough Muslims to give them a congregation.

UK Prime Minister,: Massacres of Armenians and others " an appalling
crime against humanity"
David Cameron, the new UK Prime Minister has declared that "The
massacres of Armenians and others in Anatolia during and after the First
World War were an appalling crime against humanity ...., and should be
recognised as such". He made this statement through his office in a
reply to Eilian Williams on the 13th November 2007. This goes further
than any reply from the previous Labour Government. He will be called to
honour the committment that (the crime) "should be recognised as such"
by attending the Genocide Monument in Cardiff.
We are also writing to him with this suggestion:
"As the UK is such a firm supporter and ally of Turkey, the UK
government should undertake, in conjunction with Germany and the EU as
well as the US, to assume a substantial part of Turkey's liabilities for
reparations for the Crime against Humanity and Genocide of 1915-23. This
assumption would provide a quantum leap in the improvement of
Turkish-Armenian relations. Reparations would be of two forms ,
external, to the Armenian Republic, and internal, to reconstruct and
restore "Turkish" Armenia.
The initial amount of money required for this latter project would
not be great eg the re-constuction of 500 Churches/Armenian Cultural
Centres each by the UK, Germany, EU and the US,(probably only 300
million GB Pounds each for each of the four above parties)as well as a
similar amount to finance Armenian language education for the one
million Muslim and crypto-Armenians, who may be considering returning
to Christianity and overt Armenian identity given the right political
