I have seen numerous reports in the Turkish media, and media throughout the Middle East, that Abraham Foxman of the ADL sent a letter to Turkish Premier Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Friday and reversed his position that the Armenian genocide was a genocide, apparently now claiming it was not a genocide. I have been waiting for the ADL to either confirm or deny these widely circulated press reports, but have not been able to find anything yet. Has the ADL posted the entire letter on the internet? If not, why not? If so, where? Has the ADL indeed denied that the genocide was a genocide? Has the ADL confirmed or denied these reports?
I have found the following news reports, among many others, but eagerly wait to see a copy of the letter straight from the Foxman's mouth, and a full explanation from Foxman as to the meaning of his letter:
Note the completely different tone Foxman's letter, as quoted, has towards the Turks, than his grudging and resentful press releases concerning the Armenians. Why, you'd almost think Foxman had offended the false Jewish messiah Shabbatai Zevi, or his heir to the Jewish throne.
