Hey people, Erdogan’s Turkey is our key ally and longterm NATO partner in the region. What I said as senator, I can’t repeat as responsible president of the United States. You understand … and the 1,5 million victims at the hand of the Ottoman Turks?

How has Middle East policy worked out for you in Libya and Syria … de destabilization has caused tens of thousands of deaths after the overthrow of Libyan dictator Gaddafi. The mess created by western allies, Turkey, Jordan and the Gulf states in Syria has caused more than 200,000 deaths and millions of refugees and a multitude of displaced persons. The hypocrisy of European “leaders” is just astounding and morally corrupt. None will attend the commemoration of the Armenian bloodbath for the sake of upsetting NATO partner Turke

Hillary Clinton supports adoption of Armenian genocide resolution; pledges to recognize Armenian genocide as president

    “Our common morality and our nation’s credibility as a voice or human rights challenge us to ensure that the Armenian Genocide be recognized and remembered by the Congress and the President of the United States.” — Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-NY)

WASHINGTON, DC – Democratic Presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton, in a forceful statement shared today with the Armenian National Committee of America (ANCA), called for Congressional passage of the Armenian Genocide Resolution and pledged that, as President, she will recognize the Armenian Genocide.

 “Armenian Americans from across the United States welcome Hillary Clinton’s strong support for the adoption of the Armenian Genocide Resolution, and her pledge to recognize the Armenian Genocide as President of the United States,” said ANCA Executive Director Aram Hamparian. “Hillary Clinton’s statement, which reflects her consistent track record of support in public office, speaks powerfully to our community’s deeply held concerns regarding the recognition of the Armenian Genocide, the expansion of the U.S.-Armenia relationship, and a fair and democratic resolution of the Nagorno Karabagh conflict.”

 As a Senator, Hillary Clinton has, since 2002, has cosponsored successive Armenian Genocide resolutions. She joined Senate colleagues in cosigning letters to President Bush in 2005 and 2006 urging him to recognize the Armenian Genocide.

International Court of Justice – Advisory opinion of May 28th, 1951

I.  The Genocide Convention

     The Genocide Convention resulted from the inhuman and barbarous practices which prevailed in certain countries prior to and during World War II, when entire religious, racial and national minority groups were threatened with and subjected to deliberate extermination. The practice of genocide has occurred throughout human history. The Roman persecution of the Christians, the Turkish massacres of Armenians, the extermination of millions of Jews and Poles by the Nazis are outstanding examples of the crime of genocide. This was the background when the General Assembly of the United Nations considered the problem of genocide. Not once, but twice, that body declared unanimously that the practice of genocide is criminal under international law and that States ought to take steps to prevent and punish genocide.

     In 1946 the First General Assembly declared by Resolution 96 (I) that genocide was a crime under international law and entrusted to the Economic and Social Council the task of drafting a convention on the subject. An Ad Hoc Committee on Genocide was constituted by the Economic and Social Council for this purpose.

     A Convention drawn up by that Committee and amended by the General Assembly was unanimously approved by the General Assembly in Paris on December 9, 1948.
