Bush urged to recognize Armenian genocide

A Jewish member of the U.S. Congress opposed the nomination of a new ambassador to Armenia and urged the Bush administration to recognize the Armenian genocide.

Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) wrote Wednesday to President Bush that ambassador-designate Richard Hoagland’s “denial of the Armenian genocide and lack of compassion for the suffering of the Armenian people makes him unfit to represent American interests in Yerevan.”

The U.S. government has never recognized the 1915-1920 atrocities, when Turks slaughtered about 1.5 million Armenians, as genocide.

Some say the killing was not organized and occurred in the context of Turkish-Armenian fighting, making it less than genocide.
