Biden officially recognizes Armenian genocide in Ottoman Empire

Biden became the first US president in 40 years to publicly recognize the actions of the Ottoman Empire at the beginning of the 20th century as genocide

US President Joe Biden officially recognized the Armenian genocide in the Ottoman Empire. This is stated in a message published on the White House website.

“Each year on this day, we remember the lives of all those who died in the Ottoman-era Armenian genocide and recommit ourselves to preventing such an atrocity from ever again occurring,” the message says.

According to it, the Armenians who eventually fled to the United States made a significant contribution to the development of the United States.

“The American people honor all Armenians who died as a result of the genocide that began 106 years ago,” Biden concluded.

The day before, Bloomberg reported that US President Joe Biden announced his intention to recognize the Armenian Genocide in a conversation with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Then the publication noted that Biden could become the first US president in 40 years to publicly recognize the actions of the Ottoman Empire at the beginning of the 20th century as genocide.

According to historians, up to 1.5 million Armenians were killed in the Ottoman Empire during the First World War. Turkey denies that the killing of Armenians during the war is genocide. Ankara considers what happened in 1915 to be an event that could have happened to any community in a war.

On June 2, 2016, the Armenian genocide was recognized by Germany, then Turkey recalled its ambassador in response. And in February 2018, the Dutch parliament adopted a resolution recognizing the massacres of 1.5 million Armenians in the Ottoman Empire in 1915-16 as genocide.

  • That’s going to piss Turkey off, but what about a bigger genocide in Holodomor? Come on Biden, time to piss off Putler too.

      I can’t understand why so many countries have a difficult time recognizing the Holodomor to be a genocide. Are they all scared crapless of the perpetrator?

    • I believe its already done boss: Interesting too that this resolution includes Duranty’s lies. Sir Scradge will enjoy that.

      H. Res. 356
      In the House of Representatives, U.S.,
      October 20, 2003.
      Whereas 2003 marks the 70th anniversary of the height of the famine in Ukraine that was deliberately initiated and enforced by the Soviet regime through the seizure of grain and the blockade of food shipments into the affected areas, as well as by forcibly preventing the starving population from leaving the region, for the purposes of eliminating resistance to the forced collectivization of agriculture and destroying Ukraine’s national identity;
      Whereas this man-made famine resulted in the deaths of at least 5,000,000 men, women, and children in Ukraine and an estimated 1–2 million people in other regions;
      Whereas the famine took place in the most productive agricultural area of the former Soviet Union while foodstocks throughout the country remained sufficient to prevent the famine and while the Soviet regime continued to export large quantities of grain;
      Whereas many Western observers with first-hand knowledge of the famine, including The New York Times correspondent Walter Duranty, who was awarded a Pulitzer Prize in 1932 for his reporting from the Soviet Union, knowingly and deliberately falsified their reports to cover up and refute evidence of the famine in order to suppress criticism of the Soviet regime;
      2
      •HRES 356 EH
      Whereas Western observers and scholars who reported accurately on the existence of the famine were subjected to disparagement and criticism in the West for their reporting of the famine;
      Whereas the Soviet regime and many scholars in the West continued to deny the existence of the famine until the collapse of the Soviet regime in 1991 resulted in many of its archives being made accessible, thereby making possible the documentation of the premeditated nature of the famine and its harsh enforcement;
      Whereas the final report of the United States Government’s
      Commission on the Ukraine Famine, established on December 13, 1985, concluded that the victims were ‘‘starved to death in a man-made famine’’ and that ‘‘Joseph Stalin and those around him committed genocide against Ukrainians in 1932–1933’’; and
      Whereas, although the Ukraine famine was one of the greatest losses of human life in the 20th century, it remains insufficiently known in the United States and in the world: Now, therefore, be it Resolved, That it is the sense of the House of Representatives that—
      (1) the millions of victims of the man-made famine
      that occurred in Ukraine in 1932–1933 should be solemnly remembered and honored in the 70th year marking the height of the famine;
      (2) this man-made famine was designed and implemented by the Soviet regime as a deliberate act of terror and mass murder against the Ukrainian people;
      3
      •HRES 356 EH
      (3) the decision of the Government of Ukraine and the Verkhovna Rada (the Ukrainian parliament) to give official recognition to the famine and its victims, as well as their efforts to secure greater international awareness and understanding of the famine, should be supported;
      and
      (4) the official recognition of the famine by the Government of Ukraine and the Verkhovna Rada represents a significant step in the reestablishment of Ukraine’s national identity, the elimination of the legacy of the Soviet dictatorship, and the advancement of efforts to establish a democratic and free Ukraine that is fully integrated into the Western community of nations.
      Attest:
      Clerk.

    • There are sadly very few countries that recognise the Holodomor for what it is: systematic, deliberate, planned genocide of Ukrainians. As far as I know, they are Australia, Canada, Colombia, Ecuador, Estonia, Georgia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Mexico, Paraguay, Peru, Poland, Portugal, Ukraine, USA, Vatican City.
      That is piss poor, given that there are 190 countries.
      Similarly, there has been no official recognition of the genocide of the Yazidis. These entirely peaceful people have been around for longer even than the Jews, yet there are not even one million of them left in the world and they still don’t have their original ancient homeland back. There should be at least 25 million of them.
      Their own historians record numerous genocidal attacks since the advent of the evil desert ‘prophet’. The latest of many was committed by those demonic proxies of the Muslim Brotherhood; isis, in Iraq and Syria. Apart from mass murder of the men, the women were tortured, raped and ‘converted’ to the evil ‘religion’ of isis. Many committed suicide rather than live in the hell that was inflicted upon them.
      The putinazi occupiers of Donbas and Crimea are a chip off the same block as isis.

      • What annoys me, the Holocaust is rightly recognised as genocide, were Hitler tried to destroy the Jewish race. Yet when Stalin tried to destroy the Ukrainian race, and country, (more than once) the world is disinterested.

        • Russians get away with fucking everything. Anti-semitism was rife in the Russian empire in the late 19th century. Then came the The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, which purported to chronicle a non-existent international Jewish conspiracy. This caused endless pogroms with an unknown number of deaths and many millions fleeing to America, Britain and elsewhere. Worse, it was the direct inspiration for the demonic ideology of Hitler. Yet no condemnation of Russia for this ever comes from Israel, which has now been colonised by huge numbers of Russian atheist fifth columnists and fake Jews.

        • Also worth noting is the fact that the Armenian genocide also was inflicted on the Yazidis in Turkey. Survivors fled to Georgia and Armenia, which is why there are substantial Yazidi communities today in Georgia and Armenia.
