Talk about a deliberate attempt to tread on Passover:
Within Burbank schools, April will now be recognized as the Armenian Genocide of 1915 Commemoration Month, following a resolution that school board member Armond Aghakhanian introduced last Thursday.
The Burbank school board passed the item with a 3-2 vote, after hearing multiple students and adults encourage its passage on April 21, a few days ahead of April 24, which marked 101 years since the beginning of the genocide.
A genocide that will apparently never end.
Why April, why this event and not others (like Germany 1933-1945), and why the whole entire month?
We congratulate the two board members who abstained from voting for this silly, discriminatory idea. They should have shown some balls though and voted against it.
We can, together, recognize these atrocities and recognize the lives of the people killed systematically by the Turkish government,” [student] Dermendjian said, adding that the resolution’s passage would entail “a courageous step taken by our board” to help Burbank residents understand the history of the genocide and empower educators and students to learn more about it.
“Through this, we can stop the denial of the Armenian Genocide,” he said.
Who’s denying it? We’re just sick of hearing about it all the time. Get a frigging life.
It’s interesting that you never hear Jews carrying on about the extermination of those six million in Europe. Just why is that?
The sick, morbid jealousy and competition going on here is appalling. It’s also terrifically creepy and unhealthy for these kids’ heads to be constantly filled with the tribal hatreds of a century ago and more.
And yes, the timing of it all is indeed a deliberate attempt to step on the Jewish recognitions of the same season — including that of the German Holocaust.
