  1. Very Good Interview

    Babikian demonstrates a thorough and detailed knowledge of the issues.  I would have liked to have heard a reference to Lemkin and how he was inspired by what happened to Armenians, in the reference to historical analysis  But I think that Aris was just pressed for time.

    Congratulations on a job well done.

  2. We owe a debt of gratitude to
    We owe a debt of gratitude to Aris Babikian for truthfully, concisely and eloquently reporting about the facts surrounding the Armenian Genocide.

    While it was unfortunate that the interviewer was instructed (or chose) to raise the sorts of questions that denialists rhetorically ask (and even went so far as to thank Aris "for presenting his side of the story"), Aris seized the opportunity to dispel of long-held and hurtful Turkish myths with elegance, maturity, and dignity.

    Abriss, Aris.

  3. Aris Babikian
    I am proud to know that in Canada we have such people as Aris Babikian who have such detailed knowedge of the Armenian history. Today, after this interview, I feel I know more about what happened to Armenians, both my parents were servivors of the Genocide.
    I also want to thank Steve Paikin for the eloquent way he was addressing his interview.

    1. My goodness!
      My goodness ladies, aren’t you exagerating it a little?  Aris did a good job, but I have seen other Armenians who have represented the Armenian case much better than what he did.  With due respect, I am surprised to see that the Armenian community in Toronto (or Ottawa perhaps?) is not capable of producing a better representative…
