The better way of learning about a person is to find out how he sees himself and what impression he made on people around. This can be applied to the definite nation.

In this respect, the article “Worthy successors of traitor fathers” already presented opinions of great people, who lived in different places and at different times, about Armenians. In addition to the study, the article offered opinions of Armenian thinkers and researchers about Armenians themselves so that Armenians did not fall under impression that it is biased. The study has three major areas:  national self-knowledge, vision into the history and self-appraisal.

Many Armenian researchers try to prove that Armenians possess high spirituality. However, not all Armenians share this opinion[1].  Famous Armenian poet Yegishe Charenz confessed that hypocrisy shows up in their mother's womb. Famous poet and writer Ovanes Tumanian regretfully wrote that “true salvation must begin from inside because we are ill from inside.” [2]

On the activity of the Armenian church, N. S. Vartaletov noted that armed with the Christian flag, this church at all times destroyed peoples of the historic Albania and Karabakh as its integral part, and skillfully adapting to the historical situation served Sefevids then the Russian Empire just as it did Byzantine Empire, Iranian Sassanids, Arabic caliphs and Mongols[3].

Famous historian, expert in Armenian studies Patkanov complains that Armenians never played a special role in the history of humanity.

Armenians were always poor owners of lands where they dwelled and they skillfully cringed before the strongest, selling their friends[4].

The Armenians` view about the history is well known. They got used to say proudly that they have an ancient history and culture and established “the Great Armenian” empire in the history from sea to the sea. The point is that the number of historians who claim that Armenians falsified the history is estimated at hundreds, probably even thousands.  

Eminent historian Auguste Carrier writes that it would be naïve to believe in information of Armenian historians because the majority of them are just a fiction. D. Morgan writers about Armenians, “We can see how historians of this country, and know very well how their clericals connect the roots of their nation with traditions of the Holy Scripture, and how they confuse legends and sources in order to bring them to the  Hayk family.” [5]

Famous European historian F. Makler for his part wrote that historians know very well that Armenia, that is geographical area, which bore this name from time immemorial, has never been a place of permanent residence of the Armenian people[6].

Armenians admit it themselves too. Academician Manuk Abegian noted that there are no tangible evidences about where the roots of the Armenian people, how, when, at what time, where from and in what ways they came her[7].

Armenian historian Pastermadjian challenges the fact the Armenian chronicles date the birth of Hayk and his people in Armenia back to 2200 BC and give the list of the spiritual leaders and the kings, who succeeded each other till 800 BC. He added that the modern science does not confirm this legend.

Famous historian Aykazian admits that “the first Armenian dynasty is consisted of not historic personalities but those taken from tales. Moses of Chorene is not a historian of the 5th century but a historian- falsifier who lived in the 7th century”[8].

Gevork Aslan recommended Armenians to acknowledge that Moses of Chorene took these stories from Syrian tales or he heard them from Hurufites wandering in Armenia and skillfully put them into his own compositions. He used the historical sources of Syria and Iran. He misappropriated the extracts from the wars of Jews of Jasenkhen, from the history of Euzeben church and Malales[9].

Touching upon his history, Basmadjian underlines that “The origin, history of Armenia and Armenians are very dark. This territory from ancient times was conquered by the emigrants from plains of the Pamirs and Indikush. Armenians, like Romans, Greeks, Persians and all nations have their mythical heroes. The national historians, having no details, evident sources, replaced them with characters from fairy tales”.

The best answer to Armenians and their western patrons came from famous expert Levon Dabegyan. He claims that the Armenians are indeed obliged to the Turks for their national existence. He acknowledges that if they remained among the Byzantines or other Europeans, the Armenian name could be just survived only in history books.

It is said that justice of a just man and tyranny of a tyrant can be found out when he gets an opportunity and will. From this point of view, everyone knows about massacre and inconceivable atrocities committed by Armenians both in Anatolia and Caucasus. Armenians recognize these atrocities themselves.

And in his article of 1936, A. Lalayan says that representatives of dashnaks gathered many armed groups in the Turkish territory plagued by war and brutally slashed women, children, elders and the disabled[10].

In his memoirs, Armenian Oganes Apresian wrote, “When everything subsided I saw Shusha again. Nothing else left in the Turkic block besides a heap of stones. All houses were burnt down and their owners were killed. The same thing happened in the Turkish block in Khankendi… In Baku Armenians seized the big city of petroleum with the assistance of Englishmen and killed 25 thousand people.”[11]

The book “For the sake of cross”[12] by Daid Kheriyan issued in 2000 in Beirut and the book “Revival of our spirit’ by Zori Balayan published in 1996[13] narrate on “special heroism” the Armenian people showed in Khojaly. Every line of the book tells about how much pleasure they derive from killing Azerbaijani children.

It is not accidental that an Armenian sniper killed a nine-year-old Azerbaijani child a year ago. Indeed, special “heroism”, “brave heart”, “will”, “courage” are needed to hit the child from a sniper rifle. This feature is peculiar to Armenians only who almost elevated themselves to the level of the “God-chosen nation.”
