Via Daily Mail:
Turkey has reacted with fury after French MPs passed a bill that would make it a crime in France to deny that mass killing of Armenians in 1915 by Ottoman Turks was genocide.Why would Turkey care about French law? There is no way Turkey would react this way unless it disagrees with the reality of its past. That should be cause for great concern.
The Turkish ambassador in Paris, Tahsin Burcuoglu, has been recalled in protest after the bill sailed through the National Assembly with a large majority this afternoon.
Ankara had also promised 'grave consequences' in terms of political, economic and military assistance between the two countries if the legislation went ahead.
In fact, Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan referred to the bill as 'racist.' I guess that means that holocaust denial should be considered 'tolerance.'
That is certainly a new low for the race card being played.
