Armenia should counteract to all kinds of manifestations of Armenophobia

Armenia should counteract to all kinds of manifestations of xenophobia, particularly Armenophobia, Karen Vrtanesyan, member of “Initiative against Xenophobia” organization and Director of ArmenianHouse.org electronic library told journalists today. To that end, the organization intends to first of all start cooperation with similar international organization and establish contacts with RA Foreign Ministry.

Over the recent years, manifestations of xenophobia were often observed not only in Azerbaijan, Georgia, Turkey and Russia, but also in United States, Karen Vrtanesyan said, referring to the Armenian individual’s brutal murder in RF, as well as American radio reporter’s recent statement containing hints of Armenophobia.

To prevent such phenomena, the organization intends to conduct permanent monitoring and analysis so as to hold culprits accountable and organize civic pressure actions.

Karen Vrtanesyan focused on Azeri MP Ganira Pashseva’s recent statement. During the PACE session held in Strasburg, Azeri parliamentarian accused Armenian delegation of numerous crimes and stressed that such manifestations should necessarily have their consequences for Azerbaijan. In that connection, “Initiative against Xenophobia” intends to apply to RA Foreign Ministry in anticipation of getting relevant response.

What about armenian bloggers?

In my opinion we  have to pay more attention on the armenian bloggers’ capacity and skills in order to have success during the struggle with azri and turkish information war.

“The Immigrant Absorption Ministry announced on Sunday it was setting up an “army of bloggers,” to be made up of Israelis who speak a second language, to represent Israel in “anti-Zionist blogs” in English, French, Spanish and German.

The program’s first volunteer was Sandrine Pitousi, 31, from Kfar Maimon, situated five kilometers from Gaza. “I heard about the project over the radio and decided to join because I’m living in the middle of the conflict,” she said.

Before hanging up the phone prematurely following a Color Red rocket alert, Pitousi, who immigrated to Israel from France in 1993, said she had some experience with public relations from managing a production company.

“During the war, we looked for a way to contribute to the effort,” the ministry’s director general, Erez Halfon, told Haaretz. “We turned to this enormous reservoir of more than a million people with a second mother tongue.” Other languages in which bloggers are sought include Russian and Portuguese.

Halfon said volunteers who send the Absorption Ministry their contact details by e-mail, at media@moia.gov.il, will be registered according to language, and then passed on to the Foreign Ministry’s media department, whose personnel will direct the volunteers to Web sites deemed “problematic.”

Within 30 minutes of announcing the program, which was approved by the Foreign Ministry on Sunday, five volunteers were already in touch, Halfon said.”
