To the Editor:

After decades of lobbying by  the Turkish government propaganda machine that distorted the historic facts of the first Genocide of the twentieth century–the 1915 Genocide perpetrated by The Ottoman Turks  where 1.5 million innocent Armenian civilians perished–finally Joe Biden President of the United states of America  in a statement on April 24,2021 affirmed that it was a GENOCIDE.

While President Biden’s statement is not legally binding, nevertheless  it is a major step forward  and a huge victory for all Armenians around the globe, thanks to the efforts  of all  the Armenian National committees around the world.

Hopefully, now  England, Australia, New Zeeland, Israel and some other countries  will follow suit, and call it what it was GENOCIDE.

In 1991 while the celebrations of the Independence of the Republic of Armenia were being held in Montreal, Quebec, seated beside me was one of the invited guests of one of the Slavic countries: I will never forget his comments. “You think the problems of your country are over now?  They are just starting”

What a true statement indeed.

It all depends now on how the rest of the world will react into bringing a final permanent solution, and put pressure on Today’s government of Turkey to admit the crime of GENOCIDE  perpetrated by their forefathers.
