We’ve heard a lot lately about the “genocide” at Srebrenica in Bosnia, thanks to the recent decision by the Canadian Government to ban Srdja Trifkovic from Canada.
There’s another genocide — a real one — that the Islamic world and most Western governments don’t want to talk about: the genocide against Christians conducted by the Turks during and after the First World War. There were actually three overlapping genocides involved — against the Armenian minority in Turkey, against the Assyrians in what is now mostly Iraq, and against the Greeks in Thrace and Asia Minor.
We just received this press release from the Hellenic League of America about an upcoming commemoration of these genocides, which will be held next month in New York:
Media Alert: 3rd Annual Greek Genocide Commemoration
