Denial of Genocide: The Force of Evil

Dear Editors,
Re: Globe Editorial, “A Genocide Not to Be Denied”
According to the Jewish Telegraphic Agency (4/23/07, “Turks want genocide commission”), Mr. Foxman and the
ADL are actively lobbying against the Armenian genocide recognition
legislation in the Congress (HR 106) and the Senate (SR 106), including the
presentation of letters from the dhimmi Jewish community of Turkey complemented
by,  “their own [i.e., the ADL’s] statement opposing the bill.” This morally
bankrupt denial of the Armenian genocide abets the exploitation of beleaguered
Turkish Jews—whose two main Istanbul synagogues were bombed in November, 2003 by
indigenous Turkish jihadist groups—as dhmmi “lobbyists” for the government of
Since 1950, both the Turkish press and Islamic
literature have steadily increased their output of theological Islamic
Antisemitism—founded upon core anti-Jewish motifs in the Koran, hadith, and
sira. This theologically-based anti-Jewish animus grew steadily in stridency,
and during the 1970s through 1990s, was melded into anti-Zionist and anti-Israel
invective Turkey’s burgeoning fundamentalist
Islamic movement.
The Armenian genocide denial “strategy” of Mr. Foxman
and the ADL has “succeeded”, perversely, in further isolating Jews, while
failing, abysmally, to alter a virulently Antisemitic Turkish religious (i.e.,
Islamic), and secular culture—the latter perhaps best exemplified by the wildly
popular, and most expensive film ever made in Turkey, “Valley of the Wolves”
(released February, 2006) which features an American Jewish doctor dismembering
Iraqis supposedly murdered by American soldiers in order to harvest their organs
for Jewish markets. Prime Minister Erdogan not only failed to condemn the film,
he justified its production and popularity. This is the same Mr. Erdogan who in
1974, then serving as president of the Istanbul Youth Group of the Islamic
fundamentalist National Salvation Party wrote, directed, and played the leading
role in a theatrical play entitled Maskomya, staged throughout
Turkey during the 1970s.
Mas-Kom-Ya was a compound acronym for “Masons-Communists-Yahudi [Jews]”,
and the play focused on the evil, conspiratorial nature of these three entities
whose common denominator was Judaism.
As a Jew, I find the actions by Mr. Foxman and the
ADL morally repugnant, ignorant, and particularly inappropriate for an
organization geared to reducing, as opposed to abetting and fomenting further
