The House just passed a historic resolution co-sponsored by Tulsi Gabbard, recognizing the Armenian genocide. It’s such a shame that she was called away for National Guard service and wasn’t in DC for this vote. But while preparing for duty, she sent out a message warning about a revival of what led to the Armenian genocide to begin with.
Erdogan has been helping ISIS/AQ for years. He has denied this but is now openly using militias of "former" ISIS/AQ terrorists, exposing him for what he really is: a radical Islamist megalomaniac who wants to establish a caliphate with himself as the Caliph — the supreme ruler. pic.twitter.com/AQ5zb6Hp08

Many are reporting this as “a blow to Erdogan” as if it was done just to spite him. But this issue about so much more, and it is something that Tulsi has put a lot of her heart into.
Tulsi is endorsed by USA Armenian Life Magazine, for all the work she has done for the people of Armenia and other countries that were devastated by the extremism of the Ottoman Empire.
The Central Asian country called a trip by the Hawaii representative and other members of Congress to Armenia and Artsakh a “provocation.” Read more about how Tulsi Gabbard snuck into a warzone to learn the truth.
In a statement released on September 27th (2017), Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard called the United States’ lack of formal recognition and condemnation of the Armenian Genocide “unconscionable”. Read more about her call for diplomatic resolution to the ongoing conflict of the Republic’s independence.
Passing House Resolution 220 would have been a critical piece of legislation in her multi-faceted approach to achieving peace, improving our relationships with other countries, fostering economic opportunities for the future, and sharing the aloha spirit with people around the world.
It resolved: That it is the sense of the House of Representatives that the United States, in seeking to prevent war crimes, crimes against humanity, and genocide against Christians, Yezidis, Muslims, Kurds, and other vulnerable religious and ethnic groups in the Middle East, should draw upon relevant lessons of the United States Government, civil society, and humanitarian response to the Armenian Genocide, Seyfo, and the broader genocidal campaign by the Ottoman Empire against Armenians, Assyrians, Chaldeans, Syriacs, Greeks, Pontians and other Christians upon their biblical era homelands.
Legislation that was finally approved by Congress ( HR 296 ) focused on the Armenian genocide alone. It was also co-sponsored by Tulsi, and resolved to: Commemorate the Armenian Genocide through official recognition and remembrance; reject efforts to enlist, engage, or otherwise associate the United States Government with denial of the Armenian Genocide or any other genocide; and encourage education and public understanding of the facts of the Armenian Genocide, including the United States role in the humanitarian relief effort, and the relevance of the Armenian Genocide to modern-day crimes against humanity.
When she returned to DC, she called upon the Senate to pass a resolution of their own.
