    Turkey has been wiling to open all its documents for analysis together with Armenian and international scholars to determine the events of 1914-1915. However Armenians constantly reject to go over documents. They just want the world accept the terrible events which are undeniable, as genocide. History had many atrocities such as the blockade of Vienna by the Ottomans that ended with many dead civilians but these are not Genocides, they are terrible atrocities which did not have the objective of totally eliminating a race or ethnicity. In 1915 while the rebellious Armenians in the East of Turkey were brutally forced to exile, Armenians in Istanbul and Izmir were continuing to live in comfort. In fact some were even serving inside the Ottoman palace as MDs and other positions. While the atrocities to Armenians are of the highest level without investigating the actual facts and documents it is unfair to call it genocide yet.
