Armenian genocide: time to face the truth

The House Foreign Affairs Committee passed the measure 27-21 Wednesday evening, even though President Bush and key figures lobbied hard against it.
Ignoring history does no good to anyone, and maybe it is time for Israel to follow this example. Who knows, eventually Turks themselves might follow suit and face the truth.
Turks strongly reject the genocide label, insisting there was no organized campaign against the Armenians and that many Turks also died in the chaos and violence of the period.
Many Germans died too, and we have enough Holocaust deniers as it is...
