Israel should break off relations with Turkey until it recognizes Genocide, Belhassen says


In a long letter addressed to the Israeli government, former academician, specialist in eastern languages and archaeology, author of documentaries and journalist, David Andre Belhassen voiced indignation at the position of the Israeli government on the Armenian Genocide recognition issue, independent French journalist Jean Eckian told PanARMENIAN.Net.

"As son of the Hebrew people and citizen of Israeli State, faithful to the revolutionary values of the Hebrew Movement of Liberation, I call on the Israeli government to give up its policy in support of negationism of Turkish PM Erdogan and of all the Turkish leaders who preceded him. As long as Mr. Erdogan denies the crime perpetrated by the Ottoman Empire against the Armenian people, Israel State must break diplomatic relations with his government," he said.
