    Two days ago, the Turks and Armenians signed an agreement re-establishing diplomatic relations. They not only have tried but have established a mutually recognized diplomatic path to dealing with past wrongs. There remain issues to be dealt with, but this just highlights Israeli intransigence even more. Meanwhile, Israel lies and throws tantrums, doing everything it can to delay or prevent peace, refusing to recognize that the Palestinians have any rights at all. The world must intervene with Israel because, unlike Turkey, it's making no effort to deal with the issues itself. All of the Zionist Apologists, who apparently pay little attention to atrocities and conflicts they talk so much about, need to find something else to whine about. It's nonsense to say that Israel can engage in war crimes because Turkey did it, but it's even more ludicrous when the Turks and Armenians are working together while Israel continue to occupy Palestine.
