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.
