Dear Turkey: Genocide Is What Genocide Is


Uploaded by infolivetvenglish on Dec 26, 2011
The Foreign Ministry warned that Israel's possible recognition of the Armenian genocide, could lead to the serious deterioration of Israel's ties with Turkey.
A Knesset committee discussed the possibility of setting a memorial day for the Armenian genocide by the Turkish people nearly 100 years ago, marking a first in Israeli history. Several MKs expressed support for the move, saying that Israel, as a nation of the Jewish people who have experienced genocide, cannot ignore genocides in other countries. However, the recognition of the Armenian genocide has long been a sensitive diplomatic issue due to the implications it has on Israel's relationship with Turkey, which denies it.
