GODDESSES OF MYTH: Ararat

Origin: Turkish/Armenian

Ararat is a goddess in the Caucasus region, specifically Turkey and Armenia.

Bullshit. You know how much I love Ararat, but to make up stories and say it was a goddess, is just retarded.  Turks came into Armenia in the 10th century, when Armenia was already Christian. How can they share this supposed “goddess”

DON’T BE SO GULLIBLE.

Մեծ Եղեռնի Նահատակաց Յուշահամալիր
Armenian Genocide Martyrs’ Memorial Church

Armenian church complex dedicated to the memory of the victims of the Armenian Genocide.

Located in the Deir ez-Zor desert of Syria that has been described by many as the Armenian auschwitz. Deir ez-Zor was designated as the final point of the Armenian refugees who were driven out from their lands into a long death march within the Syrian desert. Deir ez-Zor became the witness of the annihilation of the remaining refugees who were forced by the Ottoman Turks to death marches. Those major killing centres in the region, became to be known as Deir ez-Zor Camps where according to several sources, 400,000 Armenians were killed. 

It was the then Catholicos of the Great house of Cilicia, His Holiness Karekin II who led the construction. The complex served as a church, museum, monument and archive center. It held many important books, publications and documentary photos from the Armenian Genocide. Around the base column, the remnants of the martyrs’ bones that have been dug out from the Syrian desert are put to act as a witness of the death marches. Every year on 24’th of April, tens of thousands of people gather to commemorate the 3,5 million Armenians, Assyrians and Greeks that perished.

On 21 September 2014, Al Mayadeen TV reported that the church complex was completly destroyed by the jihadists of the The Islamic State. Commonly called ISIS or IS.

IS also brutally butchered people Muslims and some Armenians by beheadings, shootings and other vile forms of execution. Many religious leaders and politicians have condemned the horrible acts of IS in Deir ez-Zor. Turkey on the other hand remains silent and does not condemn this act, which is suprising as Turkey is fast to condemn acts by IS and wishes to be seen as a saviour of the refugees. Even though it’s been prooven by several sources and even confirmed by IS it self that they enjoy a great stream of support and trade with Turkey. Vigen Sargsyan head of the president staff of Armenia has stated that if Turkey is not behind the Deir ez-Zor church explosion, it should condemn it. Armenian diplomat Eduard Nalbandyan called out the international community to cut the Islamic State’s sources of supply, support, and financing, and eradicate what he referred to as a disease that “threatened civilized mankind.”” This is not the first time this type vandalism is targeted towards Armenian churches in the region. Similar acts have been targeted towards ancient Assyrian churches and ancient statues and monuments.

Apparently that video was old and Dez Zor church was indeed destroyed. It’s still unclear who destroyed it. IS? or was IS hiding in the church and it was bombed by the US or Syrian government forces. Either way you can clearly see that the area around it is destroyed as well and it would be wishful to think that we were somehow going to escape the chaos.

Sayat-Nova- Աշխարհումս իմն դուն իս

Modern version by Reincarnation


Lyrics

Յիս քու ղիմեթը չի՞մ գիդի՝
Ջավահիր քարի նըման իս.
Տեսնողին Մեջլում կու շինիս,
Լեյլու դիդարի նըման իս։

Աշխարումըս իմը դուն իս,
Բեմուրվաթ իս, մուրվաթ չունիս.
Պըռոշնիրըդ նաբաթ ունիս,
Ղանդ ու շաքարի նըման իս։

Դադա պիտի՝ թարիփդ ասե,
Ակռեքըդ յաղութ-ալմաս է,
Ռանգըդ փըռանգի ատլաս է,
Զար ղալամքարի նըման իս։

Մազիրըդ նըման ռեհանի,
Դուն ուրիշ խիալ մի՛ անի,
Ռահմ արա, հոքիս մի՛ հանի,
Մուրվաթով յարի նըման իս։

Վո՜ւնց դիմանամ էսչափ չարին,
Աճկեմես կաթում է արին.
Սայաթ Նովա, նազլու յարին՝
Գընած նոքարի նըման իս։ 
Yes qo ghimete chim gidi
Javahir kari nman is.

Armenian Genocide Memorial Church in Der Zor doesn’t look destroyed to me. It looks very much damaged, but if you’ve seen pictures of Syria in the last few years, this is nothing. Whole cities have been raised razed to the ground.

Let’s hope Syrians can kick the foreign extremists out of their country soon and start rebuilding.
