YEREVAN (YERKIR) - U.S. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), a longtime supporter of Armenian American issues who is expected to become Speaker if the Democrats win a majority in the House this November, pledged today to support Armenian Genocide legislation next year during in the 110th session of Congress.
In a statement released to Harut Sassounian, Publisher of the California Courier, Congresswoman Pelosi stated that: "I have supported legislation, including H.Res.316, that would properly acknowledge the Armenian Genocide. It is imperative that the United States recognize this atrocity and move to renew our commitment to eliminate genocide whenever and wherever it exists.

Unless it is in Iraq or anywhere else those yuckie evil Republicans want to go.
She probably thinks "Armenian" refers to the perpetrators.
Then she will propose Reparations for all .......
This is a question for history, not a vote in the Senate and House.
Miss Nancy has some Armenians in her district I think.
Exactly. The Iraqis could be genocided all their enemies want and it wouldn't move the Rats to action.
No offense to the Armenians (I am opposed to genocide wherever and to whomever it occurs), but, really, Nancy, in the hierarchy of things going wrong in the world today, you choose to make your stand on Armenia?
Somehow this reminds me of one of Bubba's state of the union addresses where he talked about things such as SCHOOL UNIFORMS. I kid you not. This was what had captured the attention and earnest analysis of the most powerful man in the free world.
Yeah, great, another country to rebuild...
What the Turks did in Armenia, I think, is pretty much condemned by all as one of the darkest things in human history.
ANC LEADS COMMUNITY IN COMMEMORATING AND SEEKING JUSTICE FOR ARMENIAN GENOCIDE VICTIMS
ANC Officials Speak at Record Number of Events in Colorado, Nevada, Texas, Arizona and Dozens of other Commemorative Programs in California
Los Angeles, CA - The Armenian Genocide and its continued denial are crimes against humanity. With this simple message, ANC officials and chapters launched a new round of activism this April 24th at dozens of events that were held across the Western United States.
From Colorado, Nevada, Texas, Arizona, to the cities of San Francisco, Sacramento, San Diego, Pasadena and Los Angeles, ANC officials either organized or spoke at events marking the 88th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide. The ANC also took on the role of securing media coverage for many of these events.
"I am proud of the ANC activists and community members who worked so hard this year to ensure that the murder of 1.5 million Armenian Christians in 1915 is never forgotten," explained ANCA-WR Chairman Raffi Hamparian. "The Turkish Lobby and its allies should know that the ANC and our dedicated supporters are determined to fight their immoral campaign to deny the Armenian Genocide," he added.
No, I mean financial reparations here in the states for "any victims of past abuse". Something like 100K per person.
Great. In another 80 years, the Dems can propose recognition of the Rwandan genocide.
Good, so that means you support our removal of the genocidal Saddam Hussein.
Otherwise,if not, you are a LIAR.
Agreed. So where do we go from here, Nancy?
I want Nancy Pelosi to shut up... She makes me want chocolate and NOT in a good way.
Oh yeah, I remember now. In that case they are slaughtering Christians. And we all know, in the liberal mind Christians are expendable, or at the least 2/3 of a person.
No surprise. Lots of Armenians in California and the SF area.
OK Nancy...how about the genocide that occurs here in the name of "women's rights"?
True, and in no way diminishing the facts, but the sad irony here for geopolitics today is that Nancy Pelosi is willing to stand up for those long ago oppressed, but unwilling to do squat---and, in fact, willing to completely undermine the efforts of those who do want to stand up for freedom today.
Also, there is the sad irony that the leader of the Cut-n-Run Democrats actually has the gall to preach that we, the good and decent people of America, need to commit ourselves to opposing genocide. As if.
