Belatedly –but better late than never–, Israeli Jews are beginning to acknowledge the extermination of over 1 million Armenians at the hands of the Ottoman Turks in 1915-18. At a Tel Aviv demonstration Monday night, they event went so far as to compare the events to the sacrosanct Holocaust:
WHAT ABOUT THE PALESTINAN HOLOCAUST?
Cynics are claiming, though, that those Jews never gave a damn for the Armenians and nor do they now, and that they’re just using them to bash Turkey for its support of the Gaza flotilla.
But this is antisemitic, since the demonstrators have also called for the resignation of their own president, Shimon Peres, over his 2001 denial of the Armenian genocide.
