    22 Oct 2014 | 10:28 am
    Special for the Armenian Weekly On June 6, ISIS forces captured the Iraqi city of Mosul. The Islamist forces, outnumbered 15 to 1, overran the city, forcing Iraqi national army soldiers to abandon their weapons and flee.

The weapons they captured from the Iraqi Army included American-supplied guns and helicopters. The entire battle took less than a week and displaced thousands of people and left the city of Mosul empty of Christians. ISIS continued to loot…

    It might seem a bit early to wrap up discussion of elections, but with just over two weeks to go, many people will already be casting their votes by mail, so the information has to get out there. You’ll find quite an eclectic mix of recommendations below, which might even lead to a smirk or chuckle. First, I want to mention Armenians running for office in parts of the country that don’t necessarily have significant Armenian constituencies. They deserve recognition, though I can’t advocate a vote for or against them since time constraints preclude being able to really look at their…

    21 Oct 2014 | 8:43 am
    By Avediq Isahakian Translated by Tatul Sonentz (Note: read the first surah here.) Like an enormous, ominous black bird, the awesome night spreads its two endless wings, And both descended on the caravan, the road, and the infinite fields, like an awning.   And from horizon to distant horizon, the skies filled with clouds in darkest distress, The stars and the moon no longer gleamed; it seemed like blackness ensconced darkness.   And the mighty winds wildly raced, like an untamed, unbridled stampede of stallions, Conjuring currents, raising and mixing with the clouds earth and dust…

    15:36, October 22, 2014By Vrej Haroutounian As I sit to write this article in my office in Yerevan, my mind wanders away a few hundred kilometers to the desert lands encompassing Syria, Iraq and Turkey. Seemingly, I am dumbfounded at the lack of change over the span of a century and atcertain patterns thathave adapted themselves into the regionalebb and flow. This brings to light the question of the purported advancement that mankind has experienced in the 21st century and our tendency to constantly boast of it. Walking down the streets of Yerevan, I am witness to people conducting their…

    According to the Caucasus Barometer 2013, 55% of Armenians support Armenia’s joining the Eurasian Economic Union. According to the Caucasus Barometer 2013, 55% of Armenians support Armenia’s joining the Eurasian Economic Union. More importantly, only 13% are against it. PS: I trust the Caucasus Barometer and their data. The only problem with this chart is this — I’m pretty sure the 55% of Armenians, plus the 11% who said they don’t know, in reality have a very vague understanding of what the membership in EEU will mean for the country’s future.
