The Armenian, Greek and Assyrian Genocide is one of the most understudied events of the last century. The picture that people have of Islamo/Christian harmony under the Ottoman Empire is false. Muslim treated minorities worse then our Jim Crowe era. Yet we have a plethora of ignorant leftist talking about colonialism. Islamo colonialism is still a problem today and any notion of indigenous people in Israel that clings to fake indigenous ethnicities is a joke. Arabs invaded the area and never were indigenous but leftist like to invent facts.
The book recounts the American ambassadors attempts to save the Armenians. The German embassy did zero to aid the Armenians and there is considerable evidence that its local representatives supported the genocide.
There is a minor comedic subplot in that the Germans sent one of 167's favorite types of Jooooooooos to reason with Morgenthau. The German embassy sent a clown by the name Dr Nossig to talk to Morgenthau. This was a conversation between a Jew (Morgenthau) and a Joooooooo (Nossig). Nossig tells Morgenthau that the Ottomans would be happy to settle Jews in Israel as long as they gave up their zionist schemes.The notion that Jews should have a right to run their own affairs in lands they are indegenous must have gone over this clowns head.
The Germans were upset that their silence in the massacre of the Armenians was becoming known in the Western press. The Germans blamed the messenger rather then the inhuman policies they often endorsed. Morgenthau stood his ground and did whatever he could.
The book is a short excursion into a larger topic that should be studied. The comedy of the left in making a colonial oppresive people as the ultimate victims is readily apparent to anyone who has picked up a book. Muslims have zero claim to victim status or to point the finger at anyone. Any examination of their history of colonialism and brutality reveals the curent charges from the left to be absurd. The far left likes to reinvent history but Islamo oprsession and colonialism remain facts.
