Turkey taught its first class on "discrimination" to Turkish schoolchildren and Abe Foxman was there to congratulate Erdogan a couple of weeks ago. I read the article in a Turkish newspaper. Turkey is going ahead step by step in its democratization program to treat minorities well. Teaching about discrimination was part of it. I am sorry about the rift between Abe Foxman and the Armenians in Boston. He and the Jews suffered a little in Turkey when they discussed the Armenian genocide; ultranationalists are still a danger there. Aznavour asked the diaspora to accept what the Armenian govt. wants in Armenia; I think together with Turkey they can solve their problems. I am really optimistic that it is right to keep these relations and that things will go well.
