Edelstein calls for Knesset to recognize Armenian genocide

The Knesset must do the moral thing and recognize the Armenian genocide, Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein said at a Knesset Education, Culture and Sport Committee meeting Wednesday.

"I visited one of the Armenian memorial sites and it is very hard to ignore what I saw there," Edelstein recounted. "I expect that I and the Knesset behave appropriately so that we can make decisions according to the moral standards of a democratic state."

The Knesset Speaker explained that many governments do not recognize the atrocity, while their parliaments clearly do.
