This is truly pathetic.
A prominent US Jewish advocacy group has retracted its decision to call the mass killings of Armenians under the Ottoman Empire a genocide, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Friday.
“Although independent scholars may have reached a consensus about the genocide, in an effort to help accomplish the reconciliation (between Turkey and Armenia) there is room for further dispassionate scholarly examination of the details of those dark and terrible days,” the second statement read.
Just imagine the outrage that would erupt if someone were to suggested there was room for further dispassionate scholarly examination of the details of the Holocaust. Perhaps there will also be some declaration that recognising the Armenian genocide is anti-Semitic.
