French Senate to vote on Armenian genocide bill

The French Senate is expected to vote Monday on controversial legislation that would criminalize any public denial of what the bill calls the Armenian genocide in Ottoman Turkey last century.

Turkey has expressed anger over the bill - passed last month by the French National Assembly, the lower house of Parliament - and relations between the two governments have deteriorated over the matter.

The Republic of Armenia has hailed the French move.

  3. Bayer Pharmaceuticals Giant

    Bayer AG is more gulty of genocide. Not only did they get busted ny the DEA and CDC knowingly distributin pharmaceuticals laced with HIV, after President Obama ordered the DEA to stand-down, Nayer began distributing those same tainted meds to France and other countries. Bayer AG ran their own personal corporate concentration camp where they experimented on thousands of jewish women and children. To this very day, Bayer's world headquarters are on top of a mass jewish graveyard. And Bayer AG has not paid even one penny in reparations, and steadfastly refuse to allow the dead bodies to be given a proper funeral. Buy Bayer, support genocide.
