Israeli politicians afraid of Turkey’s reaction to Armenian Genocide recognition

PanARMENIAN.Net - Head of the Jewish community of Armenia Rimma Varzhapetyan said that Israeli politicians know what will follow the Armenian Genocide recognition.

“It will affect Israel’s economy and security,” Varzhapetyan told a press conference in Yerevan.

According to her, the Jewish nation recognizes the Armenian Genocide, as it has also experienced the tragedy of genocide.

“In our opinion, Israel should recognize the Armenian Genocide as a state, but there is policy. Jews residing in Armenia were indignant over awarding the Iranian President in Armenia. But I repeat once again that it is policy. And Turkey is important for Israel as much as Iran for Armenia,” Varzhapetyan said, adding that, in her opinion, Israel may recognize the Armenian Genocide by its 100th anniversary.
