The campaign “President Obama - please don’t use the term "genocide" has already involved hundreds of Turks and Azeris as well as their friends in DC.

“We ask Mr. President to not use "genocide" or its Armenian language equivalent "Mets Yeghern" in the April 24 proclamation. Unlike many other tragedies and massacres, the Armenian allegations of genocide are hotly contested and have been rejected by US federal courts, as well as never accepted by the UN courts”, say the letters.

“Moreover, in that tragic period of history, thousands of Turks and other Muslims have violently died in the hands of Armenian military”, the authors remind.

“Indeed, according to Ottoman archives, some 523,000 Turks were massacred by Armenian military in the period 1910-1922. Unfortunately, massacres of Turks and the suffering by Turks and other Muslims of the region are not well known and never acknowledged in any proclamation. The Turkic-Americans are almost one million people, who also have hopes of change of such one-sided attitude towards the suffering of their ancestors”.
