Today mark the 100th year of the Armenian Genocide. It was the first Genocide of the 20th Century and certainly not the last. Turkey still have not acknowledge their national sin. In fact the headlines read “German President Enrages Turkey by Referring to 1915 Armenian ‘Genocide’” over at Times Magazine website. I wished the American President would have the moral courage as German President Joachim Gauck. For all the activism Google has for all kinds of Leftist causes, they can’t even have a Doodle to commemorate this sobering occasion.
I can’t help but to think how sad it is that a hundred years later the region seems to be repeating itself with the rise of Neo-Ottomanism in Turkey, an ongoing genocide against religious/ethnic minorities and persecution of Christians in Iraq and Syria by Islamic forces.
