An unsurprising headline: Turkey blames Jews for genocide bill. It seems that the Jews are going to be blamed for the Armenian genocide one way or the other. Armenians blame Jews and Israel for NOT supporting their claim, historically justified, that Turkey committed genocide against the Armenians in WW I. Turks blame the Jews and Israel for not doing doing enough to stop the US congressional resolution on the Armenian genocide. "Everyone" knows after all, that the Elders of Zion and the "Tel Aviv Government" control the United States, right? So everything the US does must be the fault of the Jews. Supporters of Turkey's position also like to point out that ambassador Morgenthau, who did much to make Americans aware of the massacre, was a "Zionist."
Add to this the ineptitude of the ADL, which reversed its position and managed to alienate both the Turks and the Armenians. And add to all of that, inevitably, an anti-Semitic fantasy that has been circulating for some years, claiming that the Jews actually committed the genocide! A long document circulating on the Web claims that Talaat Pasha who comitted the massacre, Mustapha Kemal Ataturk, who is blamed for it (though he had nothing to do with it) were Jewish. The same document informs us that Adolf Hitler was a "Zionist."
Taken together, it is thus easy to understand how "the Jews," who actually had nothing to do either with the massacre of the Armenians or the Turkish suppression of it, are inevitably blamed for it.
