Armenian Genocide, was a deliberate attempt to destroy the Armenian people and, thus, an act of genocide.
The Armenian Holocaust, was the Ottoman government's systematic extermination of 1.5 million Armenians, mostly citizens within the Ottoman Empire.
Armenians were the first to adopt Christianity as a national religion, by tradition in 301 AD.
And this is one of the reasons that led the Turkish Muslims to commit genocide against the Armenian people.
Almost 30 countries have now officially classified the mass murder of Armenians as “genocide" but the United States is not among them.
For years, the Armenian community in America has petitioned the government to officially recognize the genocide. U.S.
100 years ago, the first genocide of the 20th century began. On that date, the Islamic Turks commenced their campaign of deportation, murder and starvation against Christian Armenians. We should remember the repeated failure of the world community to act against genocide, and contemplate what we can do to stop genocide from occurring on our watch.
Will Donald Trump have the guts to call the Armenian genocide what it was?
