Urges Israeli Government to Also Formally Recognize the Crime

“It is our moral obligation to recognize the Armenian genocide,” said committee Chair Yakov Margi at a committee meeting, reported the Times of Israel. During the meeting, Margi criticized the fact that the State of Israel does not currently recognize the 1915 genocide and urged Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein to officially do so.
