Turkish intellectual Taner Akcam, who has recognized the Armenian Genocide, has released a book entitled “forceful Islamization of the Armenian”. Silence Denial and Assimilation”. As armenPress reports, the book is available at all bookstores in Turkey.
“I referred to the Ottoman Turkish archives and tried to present the history of the forceful islamization of the Armenian,” Akcam mentioned. according to Him, the book shows that the forceful Islamization was not a result of Islamic fanaticism, but the result of the policy on forcefully gathering and assimilating children and forcing young girls to marry. “These weren’t the direct actions, but one of the elements required for perpetration of the Armenian Genocide,”the Turkish historian emphasized.
