Israel Selling Drones Enable Genocide
The Armenians were the victims of a major genocide 100 years ago that has even been
called the “Armenian Shoah” by some Israeli scholars, including from Bar Ilan University.
A great deal of their national and cultural ethos continues to focus passionately on the
memory of that genocide (does that sound familiar to us Jews?). For many years now, we
Israelis – whether led by Labor or Likud – have insulted and hurt the Armenian people by
failing to recognize their genocide officially and formally. Would we ourselves tolerate
another government – say the US or England – refusing to recognize the Holocaust because
of their realpolitik interest with the perpetrator government? One senior Armenian official
has written several of us in Israel to express his deep pain as well as indignation, not

also at our thick military trade alliance with the Azeris, a Turkic people who adhere to
Turkey’s bizarre and fascist tradition of rewriting history and denying the Armenian Genocide.
