    President Peres is right when he stated that ADL has its own policy. For that I cannot critize or blame him. ADL, should have thought and alalysized before accepting the Armenian claim that the events of 1915 were "genocide". "Genocide" is a well defined crime in the UN Convention on Genocide. The Ottoman Government did not issued any order to annihilate the Armenian population of the state. The Armenians were only re-located to places from where they couldn't assist the invading Russian armies. In this process some Armenians unfortunaately have lost their lives. But, what about the Muslim population of the Ottoman state who have lost their lives in terrorist activities undertaken by the Armenians? On the other hand, ADL should not have taken revenge over the current policy of the present Turkish Government by depicting the the 1915 events as "genocide". Descring the 1915 events as "genocide" deprives the word of its meaning. Respectfully, Candan Azer
