Mass. Sued for Citing Armenian 'Genocide' by Turks
by Anthony Brooks
Weekend Edition - Sunday, November 20, 2005 • A federal lawsuit against the Massachusetts Department of Education accuses the state of "censorship and political interference" for using the word "genocide" in its high school curriculum to describe the slaughter of hundreds of thousands of Armenians in Turkey during World War I. Plaintiffs in the suit say that designation is up for debate - but opponents say the evidence of genocide is clear.
"Evidently, this article references prior demands by Armenians, for settlements, and omissions of genocide, from the Turks...
Presuming that the facts of this article can be substantiated (with respect to the objection to the reference of "genocide") it, once again, should remind us that the greatest threat to our freedom and liberties is the courting of censorship.
There are numerous cases pending today, in our crowded courts, at which represent requests to suppress and alter our archives of our history.
Another censorship issue:
The lawsuits to remove, "IN GOD WE TRUST" as written into our Constitution, currency, and other historical documents... These attempts to over-turn the archrivals of history and refute the principals of our Founding Fathers, become an aggressive attack on our great nation.
To censor and invalidate our Freedoms, will NOT keep this country strong.
"Freedom of the People shall prevail.".....M. B.
