The ADL, Ahmadinejad and Turkey

Christopher Jon Bjerknes

Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in his Own Words

Yet, the ADL asks Armenians to treat Turkey's "overtures [. . .] to convene a joint commission" seriously, while Turkey really does deny the Armenian Holocaust. See:

The ADL has some explaining to do.
