3452) We Petition The Obama Administration To: Support Turkish - Armenian Reconciliation

Support US policy on Turkish-Armenian reconciliation, which includes a Joint Historic Commission to study whether genocide occurred. More than 4,000,000 Turks and 600,000 Armenians perished or were displaced in WWI. The Scandinavian, Indian, Malta, and Istanbul tribunals did not find anyone guilty of genocide. The UN thrice declined to apply the term to the events. Six US resolutions have passed, referring to massacres, not genocide, while seven failed for mischaracterizing the events as genocide. Recently, the Supreme Court backed a 9th Circuit decision finding unconstitutional a California law that declared the Armenian case genocide. Last month, Europe’s top court held there is no expert consensus on the events of 1915. It is time to replace antagonism with a compassionate dialogue.
