Roberto Saviano is not the only writer to have been threatened with death for having written a book. Even in Genoa we have a case of this kind. It is true that the Neapolitan journalist, by its own admission, had not fully evaluated the consequences of the publication of his book "Gomorra". And later, only after it was discovered at his own expense that the price of success was sacrificing life, escorted 24 hours on 24, with the constant fear of ending up one day in the gun sights of a Camorra. In Liguria, on the other hand, we have another writer who, working always in history, never thought to arouse a reaction of the type Saviano only for having addressed the plight of a people occurred As long ago as 1915 in that of Turkey: the massacre of one and a half million Armenians in Anatolia. According to the Convention on the Rights of the United Nations, the extermination 'is considered as the first genocide of the twentieth century. " And it is precisely on this the facts established by several historical sources, the journalist-writer Genovese Alberto Rosselli wrote the book "The Armenian Holocaust ', published by Editions Solfanelli of Chieti. The book, 96 pages in small format at a cost of 7.50 euro, will be the testimony of how the plan to dispose of an entire people, not only was the product of the policy of the 'self-styled progressive party of the Young Turks, but drew its deep roots of old and never quite sopite contrasts between the majority Muslim turkish-Kurdish and Armenian Christian minority. " Rosselli, a good historical chronicler, merely reporting what happened during those terrible years. He says, for example, that the extermination of Christians Anatolian has already been recognized by the government of Israel in 1994, the parliaments Russian, Bulgarian and Cyprus in 1995, the Vatican and the European Parliament in 2000. Facts, then, and certainly no particular mystery revealed. Only a thorough and extensive reconstruction of historical events that led Europe to impose "the recognition of the genocide from Ankara" as a condition indibile for the integration of Turkey into the EU. "The book - tells Rosselli - came out in 2007. Dopo alcuni mesi cominciai a ricevere a casa telefonate minacciose, sia nei mie riguardi, sia verso mia moglie. After some months I began to receive threatening phone calls at home, both in my concerns, both my wife. We always different voices saying that we were the bastards, that would have killed us and so forth. It also followed calls to the same tone messages via e-mail. It seems that the calls are from abroad, as well as e-mail. The point is that these gentlemen know perfectly reveal my moves and those of my wife. I know that even a dog and named. And that can mean only one thing from one year I monitor closely ". The situation that has frightened most Rosselli took place Saturday September 27, that is the day when a Anguillara Sabazia, a pleasant town on Lake Bracciano, in Lazio, was receiving the Arche International Literary Prize, for his book "The Armenian Holocaust '. The year before had won the same award for the essay "On Turkey and Europe." That afternoon, while he was in a hotel in the area, a voice with a foreign accent called him on the phone room and once again has threatened to death, covering insults. The last time he received these threats was Sunday October 26, on his cellphone while he was traveling in Palazzo Tursi to participate in the debate organized by Senator Henry Musso (PDL) on the project of Mayor Marta Vincenzi to build a mosque in Genoa . But what he says about both shocking Rosselli's book because its author is threatened with death by international terrorists? Nothing that has not been found in history. For example, tells of when, already in the biennium 1894-1896 Ottoman militias, flanked by Kurdish ones, Rasera 2500 villages to the ground wiping Armenian people around 300mila men, women, old people and children. Also in 1896 the Sultan Abdul Hamid ordered what has gone down in history as the "massacre of Urfa. The militia forced the sultan 3mila Armenians around terrified to take refuge in the local cathedral, which then gave the fire, causing the deaths of all the faithful. Not content, rapirono also 100 thousand women and forced an equal number of Christians to convert to Islam. But the real genocide, says Rosselli, was designed in 1913 when the Central Committee of the Young Turks' planned genocide through the development of an efficient tool paramilitary, the Special Organization (OS), coordinated by two doctors, Nazim and Shakir. " In a speech on 25 March 1915, Dr. Nazim, executive secretary of the committee, said: "The Jemiet (Assembly) decided to save the motherland by the ambitions of this evil race (Armenians) and to take cargo to erase this stain that obscures the Ottoman history. The Jemiet, unable to forget all the blows and the old bitterness, then decided to destroy all the Armenians living in Turkey, left without even a live, and in this regard was given to the government broad freedom of action. " The first slaughter occurred on April 24 l915 when 500 representatives of Armenian Movement were imprisoned and strangled with wire. In a report in 1917 the official German doctor Hans Stoffels reported to have observed in Mosul (northern Iraq) Armenians entire villages with thousands of decomposing bodies. - precedentement "Children - says - previously . and raped, tortured and sodomizes in ways more horrible. " Then they invented 'the combustion useful': Armenian prisoners were thrown alive into the boilers of locomotives to provide additional energy to the media. The final extermination, always tells Rosselli, occurred in 1922 in Smyrna, when the new Republican regime of Kemal Ataturk, who continued to deny the massacre, had killed about 100 thousand civil Greeks and Armenians.
