It’s about damn time.
He should, though I suspect he won’t. Anyways, Lithuania already did the right thing.
if “W” wouldn’t recognize the armenian holocaust, obama isn’t going to recognize any christian holocaust. besides, isis and fundamentalist islam kills more mooslims than christians. they kill everyone.
In a speech on October 10th 2007, George W. Bush explicitly urged a ‘NO’ on H. Res 106, The Armenian Genocide Resolution.
During this season of Advent, Christians in the United States and
around the world are preparing to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ.
At this time, those of us fortunate enough to live in countries that
honor the birthright of all people to practice their faith freely give
thanks for that blessing. Michelle and I are also ever-mindful that
many of our fellow Christians do not enjoy that right, and hold
especially close to our hearts and minds those who have been driven from
their ancient homelands by unspeakable violence and persecution.
In some areas of the Middle East where church bells have rung for
centuries on Christmas Day, this year they will be silent; this silence
bears tragic witness to the brutal atrocities committed against these
communities by ISIL.
We join with people around the world in praying for God’s protection
for persecuted Christians and those of other faiths, as well as for
those brave men and women engaged in our military, diplomatic, and
humanitarian efforts to alleviate their suffering and restore stability,
security, and hope to their nations. As the old Christmas carol
The Wrong shall fail,
The Right prevail,
With peace on earth, good-will to men.
“our military, diplomatic, and humanitarian efforts to alleviate their suffering and restore stability, security, and hope to their nations.”
Quite the euphemism for the American policy of drawing out a brutal Syrian civil war which is rapidly extinguishing the Christian presence in that country.
