Hypocritical Jewish Organizations and the Armenian Genocide
by David Boyajian
“It’s all about the Benjamins [$100 bills], baby,” Tweeted Congresswoman Ilhan Omar in February. She was the accusing super-wealthy AIPAC (American Israel Public Affairs Committee) of bribing Congress into supporting Israel.
AIPAC, ADL (Anti-Defamation League), AJC (American Jewish Committee), B’nai B’rith, and Congress condemned Omar as anti-Jewish.
2,153 persons at JewsWithIlhan.org, however, defended her.
AIPAC can’t legally donate to politicians. Its Congressional Club members, however, must do so. AIPAC members ‘bundle’ individual political contributions. Some AIPAC officials head political action committees (PACs) which back candidates. And an AIPAC affiliate flies Congresspersons to Israel.
After Israel, the Jewish organizations’ imperative is the Holocaust.
They’ve steered Holocaust legislation — regarding commemorations, education, monuments, museums, reparations, and war crimes — through Congress, state and foreign legislatures, and the U.N.
America has special Holocaust and Anti-Semitism envoys.
Diminishing/denying the Holocaust is a crime in many European countries.
Yet leading Jewish organizations have long diminished/denied the 1915—23 genocide Turkey committed against 1.5 million Christian Armenians on their ancient homeland.
Also, AIPAC, ADL, AJC, B’nai B’rith, and JINSA (Jewish Institute for National Security of America) have colluded with Turkey to defeat Armenian Genocide resolutions in Congress. Demanding Holocaust legislation while thwarting recognition of another genocide is hypocrisy and moral bankruptcy.
“The Holocaust,” says Israeli journalist Yossi Melman, “is often an instrument of policy, not a moral compass.”
Turkish-Israeli-American Jewish collusion
Beginning in or before the 1980s, Turkey sought help against critics, including Armenian and Greek Americans, of its human rights abuses. Turkey’s then-ally Israel enlisted Jewish American organizations into defending Turkey. Jewish/Israeli/Turkish media have penned millions of words confirming this.
JINSA’s Yola Habif Johnston confessed in 2006 that AIPAC, AJC, B’nai B’rith, and her organization “have been working with the Turks” for more than 15 years. “The Jewish lobby has quite actively supported Turkey to prevent the so-called Armenian genocide resolution from passing.” ADL was similarly guilty.
