Welcome to TADA


Welcome to our new website for Turkish Anti-Defamation Alliance.

Dear Concerned Friends,

On behalf of a new volunteer group TADA (Turkish Anti-Defamation Alliance; Turkish: İftiralara Karşı Türk Birliği, İKTB), I would like to inform you of the establishment of a platform to discuss and assemble information related to the harassment or intimidation of Turks, Turkish Americans, and friends of Turks in the U.S. stemming from accusations of Armenian “genocide.”

Such persons can be adults who, for example, may have suffered tangible damage in their professional lives, or school-aged children who may have been harassed or mocked by their peers and sustained pychological damage, or even loss of educational opportunity, due to their being of Turkish origin.

It is not necessary that a person is accused of being a descendent of alleged genocide perpatrators. An accusation of being just a “denialist” is worth cataloguing because of its impact on a potential lawsuit. Even a “dirty look” from students or the teacher is worthy of mention.

Instead of students themselves, especially in the case of young children, information coming from parents in connection with the harassment their children suffered would also be welcome.

We welcome any information that you may have to help us identify cases of material or psychological damage. Please put your story in writing and forward it to me, through e-mail or postal service, providing as much relevant information as possible.

We also encourage you to pass on this message to your friends and acquaintances who may provide such information.

In addition to assembling relevant information through this message, we are planning a Turkish Channel USA “forum” series in New York. Through this series, which will also be posted on YouTube, we will seek and convey the experiences of those Turks and Turkish Americans who come forward. We currently have seed money almost sufficient for a 1-hour show once a month for 6 months, and we hope to have additional funds to extend it to 12 months, thereby securing a 1-hour show each month for the first year.

We will endeavour to publicise our efforts through other means including the print media.

You are probably wondering what next? Should certain cases warrant, we will vet the submitted information through the assistance of an attorney and gather evidence for a potential court case. Given sufficient funds, and assuming also a legal recourse has merit, our ultimate goal is to take legal action against those individuals and establishments that perpetrate unfounded Armenian “genocide” accusations to harm individuals of Turkish origin.

We will need financial contributions toward this end.

Pending further developments, in future we may broaden the scope of our efforts to take legal action (1) against those individuals and establishments, including media, that openly and slanderously accuse, without just cause, Turks and Turkish heritage with allegations of Armenian “genocide” in public; (2) against schools that include, in a prejudicial manner, Armenian allegations of genocide in educational curricula that instigate anti-Turkish hatred, even racism, in young minds of impressionable age; and (3) against academic institutions and the media that deliberately censure the Turkish view on the 1915 events in Ottoman Anatolia, thereby denying the Turkish side its freedom of expression.

We believe that unjust Armenian accusations – which amount to defamation – have gone on too long without any legal challenge, and it is time to curb if not silence such accusations and the damage that they cause. Both the 1948 UN Convention on the Punishment and Prevention of Genocide as well as recent judicial rulings from Europe are in our favour, i.e., Armenian “genocide” is not proven. The U.S. First Amendment does not protect defamation that causes harm.

Legal challenge against Armenian “genocide” resolutions passed by parliaments of some foreign countries is outside the purview of TADA. Such efforts would undoubtedly complement TADA’s mission.

It is also a fact that, the Armenian side, fearing defeat, to date has refrained from taking its case to court to prove its “genocide” accusations. “Genocide” is a strictly legal term, and unlike Holocaust, Armenian “genocide” remains unproven in a court of law.

By this statement we are also approaching our Turkic friends, in particular our Azerbaijani cousins, and inviting them for a unified stand towards a common goal. We also encourage our Turkish friends outside the U.S. to pursue similar legal remedies against Armenian allegations in their areas.

Kind regards,

Turkish Anti-Defamation Alliance Team

1.. News.am : “Noah’s Ark” is planned to be built in Armenia, and the “Let’s Build Nationwide” Fund has been set up for this objective. The complex will be constructed on the hill overlooking Mount Ararat, as described in the Bible, The ark will remind that Armenia is the first homeland of humanity ! because, after the Great Flood, the salvation of humanity began in the Armenian World.




2. Aina.org; The U.S. decision to arm YPG has dealt a huge blow to the Turkish government’s position. Worse, it came just before President Erdoğan’s visit to the United States. Despite that, Erdoğan is still harboring hopes of convincing President Trump to reverse the decision.

The opposition has suggested that Erdoğan should have canceled the meeting with Trump.

Both are utterly unrealistic responses to such serious crises.



3. Protestant.am A mob boss in Turkey, Kürşat Yılmaz, stated that in 2005 the Gülen movement had proposed him to kill Istanbul Armenian journalist Hrant Dink. Testifying before the prosecution, Yılmaz added that the Gülen movement also wanted that he become their mob, News.am reports, referring to  Cumhuriyet (Republic)


4. Armedia.am. ; Allegations that Turkey has not done enough against the ISIL is "slander" by former U.S. President Barack Obama’s administration. President Erdoğan accuses some officials appointed by Obama of trying to influence President Donald Trump’s decisions on Syria and Iraq.

10-year-old Turkish girl Talya Özdemir becomes youngest person ever to address the UN

Talya Özdemir, a 10-year-old Turkish girl became the youngest person to address the United Nations General Assembly on the momentous occasion of the International Day of Women and Girls in Science.

Speaking at the panel titled ‘Gender, Science and Sustainable Development: The Impact of Media,’ Özdemir received a standing ovation for her speech “Girls for Girls in Science”.

“I came to share my thoughts with you on this very important day, which encourages girls like me to choose to become scientists, honors women in science and contributes to the development of the world,” she said in her opening remarks.

Özdemir stated that although the UN has many internationally important days on a range of issues from science and gender equality to social justice, she and her friends have little knowledge of these days and emphasized that it was the responsibility of governments and the UN to raise awareness about these issues.

She called on the UN and local authorities to visit schools to talk about environmental issues, science, poverty, equality, climate change and renewable energy.

Stating that it was not possible for the UN to reach its Sustainable Development Goals without scientific developments, Özdemir said that women’s and girls’ contribution was crucial in that sense.

Little Talya also touched upon the issue of refugee women and girls, saying that among them there were many scientists and urged everyone to help them pursue their careers.

Speaking to reporters after the panel, Özdemir said that she was proud of representing her country, Turkey, and all girls in her country at the UN General Assembly.

She said that there were many women working as doctors, engineers and teachers in Turkey but that women’s achievements in Turkey or other countries were never really heard of and were not talked about. She said that the media should cover more news about women in science and schools should give lessons about successful female scientists.

Özdemir also asked Peter Thomson, President of the UN General Assembly to be the first person to sign the new campaign she launched “Girls4GirlsinScience” to promote the efforts of girls in science working on sustainable development through education.
