Truth Be Told: I am thrilled that Mr. Foxman and the national ADL saw fit to change its stance with respect to the Armenian genocide. I believe the Jewish people are a just people and the change in Mr. Foxman's and the ADL's stance is testament to this. I hope the letter I submitted last Saturday, August 18, 2007, in some small way, contributed to the orchestrated symphony crying out to justly set the record and history straight. I am hoping, too, Mr. Tarsy, former ADL New England Regional Director, will be reinstated and that, ultimately, the ADL will support the Congressional resolution now before Congress which would formally acknowledge the abominable events of the Armenian slaughter.
I am so proud to be a part of a people who are flexible in the face of truth and understand the importance of -- as the academic course headquartered in Massachusetts teaches -- facing history and ourselves. Perhaps it is so because we have had to face our own truth which so many still deny. Nations must know their murderous actions have consequences and that the dust of history, no matter how distant, will not cover them up.
