It is hypocritical of any organization devoted to “intolerance around the world” to welcome normalizing of relations of any kind with the Republic of Turkey. Turkey has more reporters in jail than Iran, China or Eritria – so much for one of “the region’s only two democracies”. If this weren’t enough, the foundation of the Republic of Turkey is the genocide, under guise of a world war, of a million and a half Armenian men, women, children, and further, the codified dispossession of their wealth, property, and the organized destruction of any vestiges of their 2,500 year old culture. Turkey continues to deny it murdered a nation. According to the renowned historian, scholar and expert specializing in Holocaust, Genocide studies and racism, Yair Auron , “Germany used the fact that committers of the Armenian Genocide remained to be unpunished, so it is necessary to recognize and condemn Armenian Genocide, in order to avoid such phenomenon in future". It should be noted that comments on this declaration were closed on B’nai B’rith’s web site. In fact, none appeared allowed.
