Hitler decided to take up the Holocaust as he was sure no one would remember about it, as was in the case of the Armenians, Knesset MP Dov Hanin (Hadash) said.

Knesset holds hearings on the 1915 Armenian Genocide, IzRus informs. Dov Hanin claims that numbers and security issues may be arguable, however, death of hundreds of thousands of Armenians forced to deportation to Syrian deserts is a fact. Earlier the Speaker Reuven Rivlin said that Israel has an obligation to remember the murder of more than a million Armenians at the hands of the Turks more than a hundred years ago.

Besides, he also said that the issue should not be turned into an attack on the Turkish government. To note, the discussion is held on the threshold of the State Comptroller Micha Lindenstraussr’s releasing a report on Israel’s interception of Turkish Mavi Marmara ships.
