Kim Kardashian praises the U.S. House of Representatives for acknowledging Armenian Genocide

On Tuesday, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a resolution to formally recognize the Armenian Genocide, which saw approximately 1.5 million Armenians killed by the Ottoman Empire in 1915. Following the 405-11 vote, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star, 39 — who has proudly embraced her Armenian heritage — praised the government for its decision in a post on her Instagram.

“Yesterday was such a huge victory for the Armenian people when the US House Of Representatives acknowledged the Armenian Genocide!”

Kim’s ties to Armenia has been especially evident as of late.

Earlier this month, her family traveled to Armenia, where Kim, Psalm, 5 months, Saint, 3½, and Chicago, 20 months, were baptized at Mother See of Holy Etchmiadzin in Vagharshapat, Armenia.

“Thank you Armenia for hosting my family and I in such a memorable trip,” she captioned the post. “So blessed to have been baptized along with my babies at Mother See of Holy Etchmiadzin, Armenia’s main cathedral which is sometimes referred to as the Vatican of the Armenian Apostolic Church. This church was built in 303 AD.”

Seems like the Turks don’t like anyone very much....now they are working on the Kurds. Ask the Balkans how they like the Turks?

Glad to see they have their priorities straight. Its not like infrastructure, medical costs and budget concerns are weighing heavily on us. When are they going to take up the pressing problem of the murder of those Christians in the Colosseum?

In his book “Innocents Abroad,” 1869, which established his reputation as a writer, Mark Twain described Syria under the Ottoman Turkish Empire: Five thousand Christians … were massacred in Damascus in 1861 by the Muslim Turks.. Narrow streets ran blood for several days, and that men, women and children were butchered indiscriminately and left to rot by hundreds all through the Christian quarter … the stench was dreadful.

All the Christians who could get away fled from the city, and the Mohammedans would not defile their hands by burying the ‘infidel dogs.’ The thirst for blood extended to the high lands of Hermon and Anti-Lebanon, and in a short time twenty-five thousand more Christians were massacred..

Mark Twain described Jerusalem under Ottoman Muslim rule: “Rags, wretchedness, poverty and dirt, those signs and symbols that indicate the presence of Moslem rule. ….

The Plague of Islam.. Islam is a disease,

I’ve really never understood these kind of things. Nothing is changed by our government “acknowledging” or not something that happened in a different country over 100 years ago. It’s a waste of time. It’s not like it’s going to suddenly wind up in history books, nobody is getting any reward, nobody is getting un-killed. Proof of the real problem in this country, we think the government matters.

So you think we should continue being a lapdog for Turkey, and Congress should continue to spend trillions for no reason?>
