The Armenians call it their holocaust - the 1915 forced deportation and massacre of more than a million Armenians by the Turks. But the Turks and our own government have refused to call it genoc

There is no doubt that the Turks carried out genocide against the Armenian people they are still in denial of this crime because they are ashamed of what they did.This is was a war crime no different from that committed by the Nazis during World War II.It should never be forgotten.

Noted - it is very concerning that the Turkish government doesn't seem to want to acknowledge this dark chapter in their history. Without honest reflection, the underlying cultural factors that allowed the incidents to occur will remain unaddressed, making it possible for the entire episode to recur.

It may be shame....it may be the refusal of an Islamic government to consider the rights of "infidels." Remember the controversy in Denmark, when free speech/a simple cartoon was declared an "insult" to Islam?

I know for a fact that the Turks committed genocide against the Armenians. My husbands great grandparents escaped to America after finding their two sons hanging on meat hooks. His uncle was forced to watch his entire family shot to death before they shot him because he refused to tell them where guns were hidden (one of the daughters watched thishappen as she hid in a barn. It is recorded in a book written about the massacre). The irony of that is the Turkish morons were standing on the very spot where the guns were buried.. He will never be able to trace his geneology because the Turks destroyed all of the Armenian records. Shame on anyone who denies that this happened.

They're in a tricky position...someone needs to help them find a way to apologize. It'll be interesting to see what happens.
