Seeking tolerance, compassion

As an Armenian born in Canada, I am proud of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights on its insistence to recognize the Armenian genocide as just that, a genocide (CMHR won't flip on Armenian genocide, April 8).

I am also disappointed in Turkish Ambassador Tuncay Babali's rhetoric. It is raw diplomatic bribery.

It's time to take the blinders off so that Turks and Armenians can hopefully coexist as neighbours and produce generations of tolerance and compassion.

I am a Canadian citizen of both Armenian and Palestinian ancestry. I applaud the CMHR for acknowledging the Armenian massacre.

On the other hand, I wish there would also be some acknowledgement of the loss of thousands of Palestinian lives as a direct result of the Middle East conflict. I have witnessed first-hand their loss of homes and properties, loss of freedom of movement, non-recognition of their aspirations and, for many to this day, their living in the misery of refugee camps.
