As in past years, UN workers, Tourists and average day New Yorkers were welcomed at Ralph Bunche Park by placards of reproduced American newspaper accounts of the Greek Genocide and enlarged photos of Enver Pasha and Mustafa Kemal

Across from the United Nations, they assembled. Greek American Community Leaders, American Scholars, and American Activists to remember the victims of the Greek, Armenian, and Assyrian Genocides perpetrated by Turkey from 1914 till 1923. The 3rd Annual Greek Genocide Commemoration was sponsored by Panthracian Union of America Orpheus and supported by the Hellenic League of America, HLA. This year's event, as always, was held on April 6th the Pan-Hellenic Memorial Day for the Genocide of Thracian Hellenism, which is in remembrance of Black Easter in 1914.

As in past years, UN workers, Tourists and average day New Yorkers were welcomed at Ralph Bunche Park by placards of reproduced American newspaper accounts of the Greek Genocide and enlarged photos of Enver Pasha and Mustafa Kemal. Those who took interested in the commemoration received an educational pamphlet about the Greek Genocide produced by the Hellenic League of America, HLA. For the second year in a role the event was commenced by the reading of the ancient Orphic Hymn Thanatos by Georgia Nomikos. This year's Master of Ceremonies was past President of Panthracian Union of America Orpheus Ioannis Fidanakis.

Fidanakis began the event by thanking those in attendance and acknowledging such notable attendees as Bill Theodosakis. Theodosakis has been organizing a Greek Genocide Memorial at Three Hierarchs Church in Brooklyn since the 90s. After which Fidanakis read a statement from Greek MP Dionysia-Theodora Avgerinopoulou who supported the event. Fidanakis made public afterwards of his intentions to draft a letter with the support of the Panthracian Union of America Orpheus to be submitted to the Greek Parliament to raise the question of April 6th official recognition as the day of remembrance for the Genocide of Thracian Hellenism, as the Greek Government did for May 19th in remembrance of the Genocide of Pontian Hellenism back in 1994 and September 14th for Genocide of Asia Minor Hellenism in 1998.

Speakers this year included such Greek American Community leaders as, Dimitris Molohides the President of the Pan Pontian Federation of USA and Canada and William Samonides the President of the Asia Minor Hellenic American Society, as well as Elias Tsekerides the President of the Federation of Hellenic Societies of Greater New York. In a powerful speech, President Tsekerides, call upon the United States Government to Act now in keeping their promise to recognize the Armenian Genocide, but also to include all the Christian victims, Assyrians, Pontian Greeks, Anatolian Greeks and Thracian Greeks.

At one point during President Tsekerides speech he stated The Thracian Genocide, like all other Genocides was a systematic torture, massacre and ethnic cleansing of several millions Hellenes (Greeks) perpetrated by the Turks throughout historic THRACE, an area that includes Constantinople (now called Istanbul by the Turks), Eastern Thrace, and the islands of Imvros and Tenedos. During the Byzantine Empire era, Thrace was regarded as an important center of Hellenism. As a result of the conquest of Constantinople there was slaughtering, plundering and flight by the Thracians towards Western Europe and the Balkan countries, as well as forcible islamification for those who remained. Among the people that were forced to change faith the phenomenon of crypto-Christianity was noticed, a phenomenon that is also prevalent in current times.
The true star of the commemoration, however, was Jewish-American Activist and Author Pamela Geller. Geller truly stole the moment with an electrifying speech, in which she muses How can we possibly address a problem if we are afraid to diagnose the problem and say what it is? Hitler himself said it was the template of the Armenian, Greek and Assyrian Genocides that formulated his plan for the Jews during World War Two. Geller continued to publically ask why the Islamic World has not been made to make amends for such a horrible crimes against humanity, while other countries like Germany have for its past crimes.

Geller commended the efforts of organizers to raise awareness of the Greek Genocide and at one point in her speech stated that people need to see the pictures of the Armenian Genocide, people need to see the picture of the Assyrian Genocide, people need to know what happen. It is Genocide, and when Ab Foxman of the ADL says it shouldn't be a Genocide, Shame on you! You of all people, who know up close and personal what a Genocide is. Geller who has made numerous appearances on network television is the Editor and Publisher of the popular Blog Atlas Shrugs, Executive Director of FDI/SIOA and the author of the book The Post-American Presidency, the Obama Administration's War on America.

EDITOR'S NOTE
It's very embarrassing that Greek people suffer again, this time not by the Turkish government, but by the Greek government! October 18 confirmed that the Greek government, not the Turkish government, is the enemy of the Greek people! Marilizardist Papandreou of Graecokleptocracy crossed the Rubicon on October 18, 2010, when his Merciless Marilizard destroyed a distinguished professor and dissident blogger, in order to appease Premier Erdogan of Turkey! That�s why the Global Tax Revolt declared October 18 as the International Day Against Cybercop Brutality. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/globaltaxrevolt

The impunity of the 300 Graecokleptocrats of the Grand Brothel on Syntagma Square is the most freakish thing on Earth. Even though they looted many billion euros in kickbacks and churning, not a single Graecokleptocrat has ever gone to jail! They are protected by the parliamentary immunity, and nobody can touch them, no matter what. Moreover, they have the nerve to jail dissident bloggers. It�s a long way from the 300 Spartans of Leonidas! Allons enfants de la Grece!
