Germany votes to call Armenian genocide a “genocide” so TURKEY RECALLS AMBASSADOR

Victor LaszloRebel Commentator

In a near unanimous decision, the German parliament voted to declare the genocide of the Christian Armenians by the Muslim Turks a genocide with one abstention and one opposed.

The Turks have already recalled their ambassador to Germany. 

The basics on the story:

Turkey recalls its ambassador as German vote to recognise Armenian genocide throws EU-Turkey deal into doubt

Germany’s parliament on Thursday voted to recognise the 1915 massacre of 1.5m Armenians by Ottoman forces as genocide, to the undisguised fury of the Turkish government, which swiftly recalled its ambassador. 

The landmark decision came despite fears it could jeopardise the EU’s fragile migrant deal with Turkey, which has already threatened to tear up the agreement and send hundreds of thousands of asylum-seekers to Europe.

The Armenians however, are understandably thrilled:

A delegation of Armenians, who were present during the German Bundestag's vote to recognise the killing of hundreds of thousands of Armenians and other Christian minorities in the Ottoman Empire as a genocide, could be seen celebrating the decision by unfurling the Armenian flag inside the Reichstag in Berlin, Thursday.

Turkey outraged by the vote. "It will not be without consequences":

Before the vote took place, German TV news did this report on German-Turkish relations and Merkel's planned absence from the vote.

This is a developing story with serious potential consequences. Erdogan will react. Please check back often for updates.

Why is it so hard, for leftist dictator to call a cat a cat, why avoiding the evidence of history, Erdogan is so pathetic , another Muslim liar.

I think they want something over around Armenia

The timing of this is still questionable. This will give Merkel a free pass, because the right thing was done, at the wrong time, and allows her to finish off Germany with the mass invasion coming from Turkey!

I also am glad they did, it was undeniable, but political shaping is probably involved

Outraged for the truth to finally be championed?

Send the rapefugees across the border erdogan – if the krauts have any balls they will organize a greeting of chain guns and flame throwers

One NATO ally threatening another, I guess we’ll eventually have to pick sides.
I’m ready to vote right now…

A class action suite for one hundred and forty billion dollars sounds jus about right

Monsters like Erdogan never like to be told that they’re monsters! I just question the timing. Why did it take so long to declare this genocide?

It’s about time the world recognize the genocide with this vote it gives the survivors and relative the right to sue the Turkish government in German courts

Erdogan is supposed to be the anti-Christ. He is going to declare himself god in the future. Does anyone else find it odd that this is only being declared genocide now? I think the bee keepers in Germany, have just destroyed the nest, and now it will get even more dangerous in Germany. I pray that all the good Germans get out of the country now, while you still can.

the world will be absolutely devastated if turkey…oh wait…nobody gives a shit about these scuzzy-fuzzy muzzies. I wouldn’t piss on a turk to save their life if they were on fire.
