America and the Armenian genocide, via WWW, viewed on September 11, 2020:( the U.S. Senate joined the House of Representatives in voting overwhelmingly to recognize the Armenian genocide. Few issues have brought about any sort of bipartisan consensus in Congress recently, but this was one. In passing this resolution, Congress urged "education and public understanding of the facts of the Armenian genocide, including the American role in the humanitarian relief effort, and the relevance of the Armenian Genocide to modern-day crimes against humanity."

    • found: Britannica online, Oct. 1, 2020:Armenian Genocide (Although the expulsion and murder of hundreds of thousands of Armenians in 1915-16 was an immediate response to the crisis of World War I and not the result of a long-held plan to eliminate the Armenian people, its deeper causes go back to Muslims' resentment of Armenians' economic and political successes ... and to a growing sense on the part of Young Turk leaders and ordinary Muslims that Armenians were an alien and dangerous element within their society. Turkey has steadily refused to recognize that the events of 1915--16 constitute a genocide, even though most historians have concluded that the deportations and massacres do fit the definition of genocide)
