Turkey’s Armenian Genocide denial policy hurts its standing in the eyes of the world community

Lessons of History: The Question of Armenian Genocide
Hellenic News of America

Dr. Christos Evangeliou is Professor presents some very interesting political commentary in this article. Here’s one excerpt:

In this light present day Turkey, which is supposed to be secular and democratic, should not be offended if other States judge it politically correct and prudent to recognize the atrocities perpetrated by the Ottoman Empire against the Armenians as genocide. The Republic of Turkey perhaps should do the same for its own good. In fact, it would have been better for the image of Turkey and its aspiration of joining the European Union, if it had done so some time ago. Instead of this sensible policy, Turkey threatens the United States with strategic penalties to prevent the resolution on Armenian genocide from reaching the House of Representatives. This is very strange behavior of a NATO ally.
