Onesidezero's Guitarist Comments on Bush

Los Angeles based ONESIDEZERO guitarist, Levon Sultanian, has commented on the Bush administration’s recommendation to Congress to reject legislation that would declare the World War I-era killings of hundreds of thousands of Armenians as genocide.

“Genocide still exists. We saw it in Rwanda (1994) and we see it in Darfur today. The only thing worse is when a mass killing of a nation is NOT RECOGNIZED as a GENOCIDE, like the Armenian Genocide,” says Sultanian. “The Bush Administration is worried that the passing of the Armenian Resolution and recognizing the mass killings in 1915 of 1.5 million Armenians will badly damage the American-Turkish relations and U.S. interests in the Middle East (Iraq and Afghanistan). How distorted is our government’s priorities? Are financial stakes more important than recognizing and acknowledging injustice against humanity? The Armenian Genocide happened; it is a reality in the history of mankind. Honest Turks like Orhan Pamuk, Nobel Peace Prize winner, acknowledge the Armenian Genocide and had the balls to ask that all Turks accept this dark historic reality.”
