Turkish denial of the Armenian Genocide

Amazing. Turkey has recalled its ambassador to the US after lawmakers labelled the massacre of a million or more Armenians in 1915-1917 as genocide. The Turks can keep denying what is a documented fact.

Isn't it amazing? Apparently facts don't mean anything to them. Tell that to the survivors that are still alive today to tell their stories of what they saw happened to their families.

V, it is. Very tragic.

I read and knew about it many years ago and was astounded.

Later, I managed to catch Eyogan's 'Ararat'. Very moving. Of course it is a movie but it did illustrate a systematic deportation and massacre of the civilian populations.


I know that the Armenian dispora is not well-known or as well documented as the Jewish.

One of the oldest churches in Singapore is actually an Armenian Church.

The more startling thing is that the Turks are still in denial.

And now they are moving against the Kurds.

When will the Americans and the world ever learn about Islam?
