      That’s appreciable that the world is kind on April 23 and 24 to commemorate the Armenian Genocide. But, How many years kindness and….. The Armenian Nation wants the whole world
      without any hesitation accept the century first Genocide, crime against humanity. Force the Turkish Government to apologize for their inhuman act of the past and accept that crime against humanity. then, the time will flip the pages of the history.

    They will stop by Armenia and say “the Genocide was a great loss for Armenians worldwide, we respect you blah blah”. Then they will stop by Azerbaboonjan and say “you are a great secular Muslim democracy blah blah”. Then they will stop by in Kiev and say “America stands with the new government, we are all Ukrainians blah blah”.

    Then these reptiles will slither back to the US to rubber stamp the next 3 billion dollar aid package to Israel and get ready to lick AIPAC’s feet. Class dismissed.
