Is the Armenian nation heading towards moral bankruptcy?

“Trafficking is directly proportional to the level of corruption in Armenia. The fact that Diaspora organizations and churches have done little or nothing to stop trafficking and help trafficked victims is proof of their moral bankruptcy
-harry


The comment above came in response to my prior log announcing the release of the second edition of Desert Nights, our book/DVD documenting the trafficking of Armenian women/children to the United Arab Emirates and forced into prostitution by their captors.

It’s been well over a year since the release of our findings and as of now any viable steps to counter this epidemic have not been done by anyone.

I’ve spread the word until I'm blue in the face to numerous international organizations, spoke and continue to speak at public gatherings and until now have seen NO serious efforts or special programs that have been of help to any of the victims, though many people have vowed their support and interest in helping.

When the comment that Harry made was posted, it hit home. What I had been trying to understand became clearer and also explains why there is not a flood of concerned and morally responsible people taking up the cause. They know what’s going on, but their moral fortitude is not powerful enough to push them into action.

Trafficking is a difficult subject to come to terms with since it is so culturally incorrect for us, is something that people don’t want to face, so ignoring it has been easy for most. It’s not their problem until their wife, daughter or grand-daughter is a victim, but then it’s too late.

So while our Armenian girls, some as young as 14 years old (they could be even younger, though I don't have any documentation though heard there is) are being held hostage in the UAE, Turkey, Spain, Egypt, Russia and Los Angeles, being forced to have unthinkable sex with stinky, disease infested animals, who are morally bankrupt, ask yourself if you too are just as bankrupt as they are by doing nothing, thus just as guilty of this crime against humanity being committed to our sisters that we have turned our backs to during their greatest time of need.

Is the Armenian nation morally bankrupt? All the indicators are sadly pointing to YES at this time.

Are you up to the challenge to do something and prove your morality? I sure hope so, though I don’t expect much from the Diaspora anymore, since they have failed the most important challenges God has given them up until now.

Freedom and independence for any nation comes with a price. If we are not willing to pay that price, the Armenian nation as we all dream of will never be realized. Today there is no “free and independent” Armenia, though with a little bit of sacrifice and morality from all of us, the Armenian nation can become something we all will be proud of.

If you are interested in getting involved and being a part of the solution, drop me an e-mail (ara_manoogian@yahoo.com) as to what you feel you can do to help out and I’ll try to plug you into the overall solution.

Please pass this message on if you agree with what is stated above and pray for the salvation of our people.
