The Swedish parliament recently passed a resolution recognizing the deaths of
hundreds of thousands of Armenians by the Ottoman Empire (now the nation state
of Turkey) in 1915 and 1916. The Turkish government has protested the action by
Sweden as well as the United States in recent days through official protests and
by calling off this year’s meeting of the American-Turkish Council. Additionally,
on March 17, 2010, Turkey’s Prime Minister threatened to deport 100,000
Armenians back to their homeland.
Coinciding with their government’s protests, Turkish hackers have defaced
over 600 Swedish websites since March 1st according to the Zone-h.org archive.
