ADL’s Armenian Genocide Recognition Sends Powerful Statement…to Israel

by Dahlia Scheindlin 
The Anti-Defamation League, American Jewry’s foremost civil rights organization, has made a powerful statement recognizing the Armenian genocide by the crumbling Ottoman regime in the early 20th century. Last Friday, CEO Jonathan Greenblatt posted a blog on the organization’s website in which he stated:
“What hap­pened in the Ottoman Empire to the Arme­ni­ans begin­ning in 1915 was geno­cide.” He reviewed the methods, from death marches to tor­ture, mas­sacre and starvation, and then restated the point: “What hap­pened to the Armen­ian peo­ple was unequiv­o­cally genocide.”http://lobelog.com/adls-armenian-genocide-recognition-sends-powerful-statement-to-israel/#more-34236
