From our Armenian friends at No Place For Denial:

BREAKING NEWS: The Belmont Human Rights Commission voted unanimously this evening to recommend to the board of selectmen that Belmont immediately sever ties with the Anti-Defamation League. It cited the ADL’s failure to unambiguously recognize the Armenian Genocide and its continued opposition to Congressional resolutions recognizing the Genocide.

Karine Birazian, the Eastern Regional Executive Director of the Armenian National Committee of America, called me this morning to tell me the good news. I suggested the next stop should be Amnesty International.

Contact Amnesty's Northeast Office at aiusane@aiusa.org, or call them at 212-807-8400. Tell them that the ADL has disgraced human rights activism and has no business call itself an organization that combats "bigotry of all kinds" unless it unequivocally recognizes the Armenian Genocide and backs the Congressional resolution that does so.
