The Islamic supremacists haven't infiltrated as deeply as they thought. "Turkey, a key Muslim ally of the United States, angrily withdrew its U.S. ambassador Thursday after a congressional committee approved a resolution branding the World War I-era killing of Armenians a genocide."
Turkey threatens ............What? Another genocide? I guess as long as Turkey was pretending to be secular, we pretended it wasn't genocide. But now that Turkey has returned to the dark side, we don't have to lie for jihadis anymore.
The committee's vote is difficult for an Islamophilic Obama. He campaigned on the promise that he would officially recognize the Armenian deaths as a genocide. As with all his other promises, Obama lied and the administration reversed course, as Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton acknowledged Thursday.
She said the United States supports a Swiss effort to resolve the historical dispute.
"We think that is the appropriate way to manage the problems that have stood in the way of normalization between the two countries," Clinton said.
Clinton said that the Obama administration is concerned the resolution could harm the talks between Turkey and Armenia.
"We do not believe that the full Congress will or should act upon that resolution and we have made that clear to all the parties involved," she said.
Man, what an empty vassal that harridan has become.
I might add, there were no news stories on this. The USA Today article is the only one. And it is a giant story.

House panel confirms measure calling WWI-era killing of Armenians genocide, over Turkey's protests USA Today hat tip DianeUPDATE: Let us not forget the other Christian minorities who were massacred in the same way and for the same reason. Approximately 250,000 Assyrian-Chaldeans were massacred, as well as 250,000 Greeks. Countless others were forcibly converted to Islam and "turkified," especially the young girls. Another thing we should remember about this period is that Greece itself was occupied by the Ottoman empire for centuries, as well as Bulgaria and so on, and this process has been going on for centuries. These nations were only freed because of WWI and the collapse of the Ottoman empire. This is a history we must not forget.
Turkey, a key Muslim ally of the United States, angrily withdrew its U.S. ambassador Thursday after a congressional committee approved a resolution branding the World War I-era killing of Armenians a genocide.
The House Foreign Affairs Committee endorsed the resolution, which Turkey sees as a historical affront, over the objections of President Barack Obama. The 23-22 vote sends the measure to the full House, where prospects for passage are uncertain.
"Turkey will not be responsible for the negative results that this event may lead to."
Historians estimate that up to 1.5 million Armenians were killed by Ottoman Turks around the time of World War I, an event widely viewed by scholars as the first genocide of the 20th century. Turkey denies that the deaths constituted genocide, saying the toll has been inflated and those killed were victims of civil war and unrest.
The reconciliation agreement reached in October between Turkey and Armenia calls for a panel to discuss "the historical dimension" of the killings. Turkey says U.S. lawmakers should stay out of the issue.
The committee's vote is awkward for Obama, who pledged as a presidential candidate to recognize the Armenian deaths as a genocide. The administration reversed course, as Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton acknowledged Thursday.
