Are gypsies from armenia?
No. The Romani (who often labelled incorrectly as Gypsies) are originally from the Afghanistan/Pakistan region, not Armenia. However, they passed through Armenia on their way to Europe.

The term "gypsy" has several overlapping meanings. Initially the word was used to refer to the Romani people, who first appeared in England around the beginning of the 16th century. Although in certain contexts the word is still used to describe the Romani, it also describes those in English-sp…eaking countries who live a lifestyle similar to that of the Romani, or as a translation of equivalent words in other languages.

Gypsies are a tribe of Indian people from the Punjab and Rajasthan region, who migrated to Europe a few centuries ago. The still keep the Indian culture and music alive in every country they go in their style of playing, dancing and singing. At one time it was mistakenly thought they were of Egypt…ian origin; hence the name "gypsies" which they regard as insulting. In some parts of Eastern and central Europe, Roma and only Roma were allowed to be kept, bought and sold as slaves - for example in parts of the Austrian Empire and the Balkans. Linguistic and genetic information leads scientists to believe that the origin of gypsies, or Roma (Romanies) lies in northern India and that they migrated to Europe in the late Middle Ages. ______ Gypsy is a slang word for Roma. Please click on the Related Links to read about the history and origins of the Roma. The Dom peoples of North Africa, the Middle East, and Central Asia are also referred to as 'gypsies' and may have a connection with the Roma. ______ The Gypsies, more properly known as Rom or Romani, are a group of people that emigrated from India (possibly in the modern Indian state of Rajasthanto) no earlier than the 11th century. The name is applied to other non-Rom peoples who are itinerant trades people. The name Gypsy is believed to originate as a corruption of "Egyptians" the supposed origin of the Rom. ______ In the late Middle Ages, Rroma migrated from India (as proven by the fact that their language, Rromani, is directly descended from Sanskrit). Upon their arrival in Europe, it was believed for some reason that they came from Egypt, which is where the crude exonym "Gypsy" comes from. Rroma endured centuries of persecution in Europe. The reason they were for a long time nomadic was not through any choice of their own but because of legislation that stopped them from living anywhere permanently. You might be confused by all the stereotypes out there. Bear in mind: Rroma are people. Just like you and me. Living ordinary lives in an ordinary world. Don't judge or assume before you meet, and let individual people, not racisms inherited by society, color your opinions. (MORE)

Under Nazi Germany, anyone who didn't fit into the social normality's of society was targeted and sent to concentration camps. This included Jews, homosexuals, communists, those with disabilities and gypsies. The main reason was because these groups were easy targets. They were easy to identify, wer…e a minority and unconventional within the society. It also fit in with Hitler's desire to create a Germany made up of the perfect "Aryan Race". In his eyes anyone who didn't fit this description was inferior, but at the bottom of the racial hierarchy was Jews, Black people and Gypsies. He considered them a corrupting force within society that must be destroyed. (MORE)

Armenia today has the economy which is growing and developing. Area disagreement holds up economic growth. In addition, Armenia has no access to sea ports difficult because the border with Turkey is closed. In 2010, it was confirmed that Turkey will keep the border closed for the predictable future …after the Turkey-Armenia normalization progression collapsed. However, Armenia turned out to be a member of the WTO (World Trade Organization). The nation is making substantial progress in privatizing possession of what used to be State Owned industries under the former Soviet system. Armenia's economy suffered especially after the great impact that the 1988 earthquake brought. Armenia today is still largely dependent upon international donors and Diaspora Armenian groups, which donating aid is used for the development of the affected regions. It should be also added that after a massive 14.4 % decline in 2009, the economy appeared to modestly improving in the first 2 quarters of 2010, recording 5.4 and 7.6% real GDP growth on an annual basis. The GDP went up by 2.8 % in the period January to September 2010 compared to the same period in 2009; on the face of it, seems to point out that the worst of the crisis may finish. Armenia today has exports remained resource-dependent, mainly because the non-resource-intensive sectors were considerably less aggressive. There was a 43.9 % increase in general exports during the January to September period. During 2003-2007, the AMD valued sharply against the U.S. dollar by around 45%, mainly due to important increase in discharges, growth of exports in complete terms, the de-dollarization of the economy, and weakening of the dollar in international markets. Today Armenia is greatly dependent on import of energy fuel, generally from Russia. The Armenia Nuclear Power Plant (ANPP) at Metsamor supplies around 40% of electricity production for the nation, and hydro and thermal stations provide approximately 30% each. Armenia today imports most of its natural gas from Russia, which provided major reductions to Armenia until 2009. The Russian import gas price rose from $110 to $154 per thousand cubic meters in April 2009, and increased further to $180 in April 2010. Today Georgia is the main way of importing nearly all of Armenian refined petroleum products. The result of the recent conflict between Russia and Georgia was in periodic disruptions of fuel and food imports, and highlighted Armenia's susceptibility to this solitary transit corridor. Armenia has deal with to decrease poverty, overcome inflation, steady its currency, and privatize most small and medium sized projects. www.Arm3A.org - Production and Export Support Association (MORE)

The native Armenian name for the country is Hayk'. The name in the Middle Ages was extended to Hayastan, by addition of the Iranian suffix -stan (land). The name has traditionally been derived from Hayk (ÕÕ¡ÕµÕ¯), the legendary patriarch of the Armenians and a great-great-grandson of Noah, …who according to Moses of Chorene defeated the Babylonian king Bel in 2492 BC, and established his nation in the Ararat region. The further origin of the name is uncertain. The exonym Armenia is attested in the Old Persian Behistun inscription (515 BC) as Armina ( ). Ancient Greek ÎÏÎ¼ÎÎ½Î¹Î¿Î¹ "Armenians" is mentioned by Hecataeus of Miletus (476 BC). Xenophon, a Greek general serving in some of the Persian expeditions, describes many aspects of Armenian village life and hospitality. He relates that the people spoke a language that to his ear sounded like the language of the Persians. According to the histories of both Moses of Chorene and Michael Chamich, Armenia derives from the name of Aram, a lineal descendent of Hayk. (MORE)

Armenia is located on the continent of Asia, is referred to in several instances in the bible as the near east (NOT middle east!) and her most famous Mt. Ararat is also mentioned several times as her ancient name of Urartu. Armenia is half way between Asia and Europe and Armenians are referred to as… Indo-Europeans, as is the Armenian language. Sometimes they are referred to as Eurasian as well. Armenia joined the EU in the mid 1990's and are part of the United Nations. Ancient Armenia's borders were the caspian sea, the black sea and the mediterranean sea. Ottoman Turks reduced Armenia's borders as a result of the Armenian Genocide to less than 20% of her original borders, and Turkey enclosed our beloved Mt Ararat within it's borders. Many of Armenia's ancient churches were destroyed by the muslim turks and to defy Russia, they placed a large portion of muslims to the east of armenia and gave them this land as Azerbaijan in 1920, encouraging them to destroy what was left of any remnants of Armenia, rename the cities and create new history on our ancient land.

Their music is a blend of synthetic pop/rock and acoustic soft rock: much of their overall sound has abeen based around sounds of the 1970's and 1980…'s, with contemporary flavours and aspects. lthough much in their 2012 album has moved in a more reggae direction. The pair have been extremely popular as a result mainly of their Internet exposure - more particularly through MySpace [They go under "Gypsy & the Cat" specifically], and their subsequent introduction via Triple J radio station.

Yes gypsies steal. Everyone steals stuff. I am pretty sure not all gypsies steal, but gypsies that I see at my work (its not the place where you're going to find the richest most well-off people) will steal anything they can if they get the chance. They teach their kids to steal stuff from our shop …and they are no older than 5. They are like any other race, some of them are nice some of them are a holes. It is also true that most of them (the ones I see) are illiterate. They also steal from the government by scamming welfare systems or any other government programs that are set up to help people, mostly by collecting from many different states. In my opinion I don't think they are as bad as the ones in Europe that will go out of their way to steal from you, but they will if they get the chance (MORE)

True Gypsies, such as Romany Gypsies, are not in the least offended. However, as with many words, it is the use and connotations that lend offence. In addition there is the growth of the 'politically correct' faction that feel their opinions should override everyone else. Though language is dy…namic to a certain extent, and words do take on different meanings, it remains the way in which the word is intended that is the largest factor in their use. Yes, but only some leaders of the Gypsies community (and stupid clerks of the very stupid European Union) was offended. Etymologically and historically this attitude is not normal. The Romanian word is Å£igan - probably of Greek origin. All the Romanians and many Å¢igans consider the term Rrom (for Gypsy) ridiculous and as an offence for the Romanian people. (MORE)

Many years ago, Armenia was much larger than it is today, but when the Armenian Genocide happened in 1915 much of Armenia was taken over by turkey! Armenia is now about 1/3 of its size than it was before the genocide! Thanks to Turkey, many people died on that day and and innocent country with only …soldiers and no army was taken over including our beloved and famous mountain, Ararat! But we Armenians never give up on hope! We believe that one day through God, everyone will recognized by people all over the world. (MORE)
