    No Israeli or a Jew should support the Idea of recognizing the Armenian death as a genocide, if we go back to history this claim was not proven at all on the contrary we know that many Moslem died as well during the war and don’t forget that the Armenian sided with the Russian against the Ottomans so it was a fair fight further more we don’t know what the Armenian would have done to the Turks had the Russian won the war, this is not a genocide they are not innocent victims! You can’t compare it to what the Nazi did to the Jews, we never sided with an outsiders against Germany prior of them sending the Jews to the gas chambers, Never forget the help and hospitality what the Ottoman empire bestowed on the Jews, Don’t forget Turkey was our ally prior to Erdogan, Don’t forget Turkey is a Moslem country with 70 million people with a big economy, don’t forget they are our neighbors, now look at the Armenian as an Israeli and a Jew who lives in California I can tell you from my personal experience I know the Armenian hate the Jews much more than Erdogan does if you read what the Armenian newspapers say about us they are comparing us to a puss, Armenia is not our neighbor it is a small country far away with a population of less than 2 million they have a small economy we don’t have any moral or business interest to side with them , Erdogan will not stay a prime minister for ever, nor will Ahmadinejat
