On April 23, Turkish prime minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan offered condolences to the descendents of victims of the genocide of Armenian by Turk forces lead by Domeh (Crypto Jew Young Turk) officers during the First World War.
“The incidents of the First World War are our shared pain. It is our hope and belief that the peoples of an ancient and unique geography, who share similar customs and manners will be able to talk to each other about the past with maturity and to remember together their losses in a decent manner. And it is with this hope and belief that we wish that the Armenians who lost their lives in the context of the early 20th century rest in peace, and we convey our condolences to their grandchildren,” said Erdogan in a statement.
On April 23, David Harris, executive director of American Jewish Committee since 1990, issued a commemorative address on the 99th anniversary of Armenian genocide. He compared it with Rwandan genocide, whose mastermind, Rwandan president Paul Kagame is currently Israel’s African ally and has been honored by every major Jewish group in the US. Harris also demanded Turkey to accept responsibility for the WW I genocide.
“In a month of solemn remembrance of the atrocities of the last century – from the 20th anniversary of the start of Rwandan genocide to the annual commemoration in Israel and United States of the Holocaust - we pause in mournful tribute to the memories of the estimated 1.5 million victims of Meda Yeghern (Great Calamity) of Armenians, committed in the final years of Ottoman Empire,” said Harris.
The US ambassador in Armenia, John A. Heffern (Jewish) visited the Memorial to Armenian Genocide and laid flowers. Later, talking to reporters he said that he was honoring the victims on behalf of Barack Obana and John Kerry (a Crypto-Jew). The US president has so far avoided calling the mass-death of Armenian as “genocide” or “Holocaust”.
April 24, 2014 marks the 99th anniversary of the Armenian tragedy.
Turkish official story is that nearly 50,000 Armenian perished during the relocation of population along the Turkish-Russian border. Armenian sources claim that nearly 1.5 million Armenian Christians were murdered by Turk forces. Read more here.
In response to Turkish threat to expose the truth behind the WW I tragedy, both Turkish Jewish community leaders and Israel lobby groups in the United States campaigned against designation of Armenian mass killing as “genocide” or “Holocaust”. Abraham Foxman of ADL claimed in October 2007 that Armenian sufferings “tantamount to genocide”, but not Holocaust which is reserved for the sufferings of Jewish people only. However, since 2010, after Ankara’s criticism of the Zionist entity, the organized Jewry in United States dropped its campaign against Congress recognition of Armenian tragedy as “genocide” as follow-up to French parliament earlier.
