Marcos Aguinis publishes article that is the result of his investigations prompted by the IRWF

“Let’s be clear.  This is not about Jews forcibly converted by the Christians in Armenia, but about Armenian Christians forcibly converted to Islam.  And just as many Jews in 15th Century Spain did not accept forced conversion and clandestinely maintained their true heritage (these were the original “marranos”), we now have Turkish Armenians attempting the same heroic deeds.  I first heard about this from the Raoul Wallenberg Foundation and then set about to find more information that I could share with you.”
