26 03 2008 - Jewish Organzations of San Fransisco support Armenian Genocide Recognition
Jean Eckian / Independent correspondent
The Jewish Community Relations Council of San Francisco, the Peninsula, Marin, Sonoma, and Alameda Counties (JCRC) has re-iterated its previous support for official recognition of the Armenian Genocide.

The organization overwhelmingly approved a policy statement re-issuing a 1989 letterto Armenian community leader Bishop Aris Shirvanian, expressing support for the Armenian Genocide resolution pending in the U.S. Senate at that time. Senate Joint Resolution 212 sought to designate April 24th as a national day of remembrance of the Armenian Genocide.

« The JCRC's policy statement is welcome and encouraging, especially at this time of intensified denial of the Armenian Genocide by Turkey and the U.S. administration's willingness to support Turkey's dangerous policy of denial, » said Bay Area ANC Chairperson, Roxanne Makasdjian.

« The JCRC's position reflects the broad majority of opinions we've encountered by members of Jewish-American organizations, and we hope this action will act as a moral beacon for Jewish American organizations in Washington, DC », she conclued.

The JCRC represents more than 80 Jewish organizations across the Bay Area of San Fransisco.
