Turkish World Bulletin: American Muslims warn Obama: don’t say genocide

The U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations said that characterizing the events of 1915 as genocide without proper investigation by independent historians will damage the efforts aimed at achieving reconciliation between Turks and Armenians.

The US Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO) the largest umbrella group of mainstream Muslim American organizations is aware of the painful history of over 30 nations fighting for over 4 years and the loss of over 37 million lives in World War I, including those of the Armenians.

As April 24 comes near, we share the pain suffered by Armenians during this period. We also believe that any acknowledgment by religious or political leaders of the tragedy that befell Armenians should be balanced, constructive and must also recognize Turkish and Muslim suffering…

    Independent historians have been investigating for a century and have repeatedly confirmed the atrocity that dare not speak its name.

    • It seems to have remained a secret only to the Turks.

    “American Muslims warn Obama: Don’t say genocide”.

    Well, one can bet that Obama will never say the word “genocide”.

      I agree. He won’t offend Muslims.

    They keep blaming WW1, but the Armenian Genocide began with the Hamidian Massacres of 1894 long before WW1.

    Today Muslims are engaged in a genocide of all non-Muslims. How successful must they be to be given proper credit for their Islam inspired deeds?

    The Mohammedans are back to illustrating stupidity as an aspiration. Unfortunately, their only achievement is failure.

    The only way Obama will ever mention genocide is when White Christians are supposed to have committed it.

      Well we’re always on our high horse, we need someone to break the fall.

    Muslim logic. “Don’t say genocide or we’ll kill you”.
