Why Won’t The Turks Admit What They Did in the Armenian Genocide?
In this wide-ranging discussion “On the Porch” with Buddy and John, film director Yervand Kochar discusses the genocide committed by the Turks against Armenians.
It’d bad enough that the Turks won’t come clean about the real nature of what they did . . . or acknowledge the horrifying truth of the numbers . . . or return any of the property that was stolen . . .
But to time Muslim celebrations to coincide with and overshadow solemn Armenian events marking this genocide . . . to fly airplanes with messages denying the genocide over those Armenian events . . . well, it tells you what you need to know about Turkey’s attitude towards their victims.
