Several opposition MKs have submitted a bill Tuesday to officially recognize the Armenian Genocide and hold a memorial day for it every April 24. The bill was submitted by Shas MKs Ya'acov Margi, Haim Biton and Moshe Arbel alongside Likud MKs Yuli Edelstein, Israel Katz and Yoav Kish. This is not the fist time an attempt has been made in the Knesset for Israel to officially recognize the Armenian Genocide. In 2018, Meretz MK Tamar Zandberg proposed a bill to recognize the massacre as genocide, but the bill was canceled due to government resistance. In 2019, a number of high-profile members of Knesset like Yair Lapid and Gideon Sa’ar voiced support for the move, but again it did not proceed due to little government support.

That will definitely chap the hide of Turkey's President Erdogan who has been trying to bury that piece of history and he goes on temper tantrums raging against those who mention it.

The word "genocide" was invented because nobody had a word to describe the horrific carnage that the Turks did to the Armenians. They wanted to wipe them out and take their land.

Later it was also used to describe Hitler's attempt to completely wipe out the Jews.

But it was first used to describe the Turkish attempt to completely erase every last Armenian.

It's a very real part of Turkish history, and unlike the Germans, Erdogan wants to erase history, not learn from it.
