The Israelis prefer "Turkish Cash" rather than tell the truth about the Armenian Genocide?

Reader comment on item: An Israeli Apology to Turkey
in response to reader comment: Israel has discredited itself

What Turkish cash would that be? I am deeply disgusted by the Israeli apology to Erdogan and the Turks and I would like to see Israel fully acknowledge the Armenian Genocide but to say Israel is being paid money not to do so is an outright lie and I suspect you know that. Israel depends heavily on Turkish cooperation regarding Iran (which is a threat to Israel's very existence) and Turkish cooperation on matters of terrorism and intelligence. Armenians, who were beloved by Hitler and who returned the affection, have yet to step up to the plate and condemn terrorism against Israel and the Jews. The world, unfortunately is not perfect. But to insist on model behavior by Israel and not by anyone else (including Armenians) is hypocritical and stinks of bigotry. The Armenians of today are no less capable and responsible for standing up for what is right than the Israelis. It is about time that they did.
