    Whatever became of the French law criminalizing the denial of the Armenian Genocide? Is that still against the French Constitution unlike the same law that criminalizes the denial of the Jewish Holocaust? Is the French Constitution biased against Armenians or is it flawed?

    If you believed Sarkozy, ? You would also believe Hollande. Two rascal politicians cut from the same threadbare cloth. There will be no criminal of fence to deny our genocide. There is only one criminality, and we know what that is.
