Adam Schiff

In a letter to the President of the United States, Congressman Adam Schiff urges President Obama to acknowledge the Armenian Genocide and call the genocide what it is – genocide. The Congressman writes:

As a Senator, you spoke of the massacres of Armenians at the hands of the Ottoman government as genocide, a view shared by the overwhelming majority of historians, including some notable Turkish historians. The Armenian Genocide has also been recognized by many local and state governments here in the United States and by many governments around the world.

I urge you to acknowledge the Armenian Genocide in your statement this year, to call genocide, genocide, and to stand with the ever-dwindling number of survivors, as well as the descendants of those who were lost, and who must otherwise continue to suffer the indignity, injury and pain of denial.”
