TurkishPAC received a letter from the USA Congressional District 7 Representative Honorable John Culberson on February 24, 2011, which states that he fully supports our opposition to the Congressional Armenian Genocide Resolutions and declares that he plans to vote against such resolutions if they come to the house floor. Honorable Culberson wrote that

"[b]etween 1915 and 1923, brutal fighting took place between Armenian and Ottoman Turks over the future of Anatolia. While Armenian authorities allege that up to 1.5 million Armenians were killed and another 500,000 were forcibly removed in ethnic cleansing, this view is not universally shared by scholars. Nearly a hundred years have passed since these alleged crimes took place, yet they still create significant controversy. Since this is a divisive historical question, experts should debate the merits of the genocide designation, not members of the United States House of Representatives. Furthermore, since Turkey is a close friend of the United States and an important ally in the Global War on Terror, there is no reason to unnecessarily provoke the emotions of the Turkish Public.

On March 17, Representative Adam Schiff introduced H.Res. 252, the Affirmation of the United States Record on the Armenian Genocide Resolution. I will oppose this resolution should it come to the House floor for a vote. I thank you for contacting me on this important issue and will continue to keep your thoughts in mind.

Thank you for entrusting me to represent you in the United States Congress. Please visit my website at www.culberson.house.gov."

Our continuing support of Honorable Culberson and tireless efforts in expressing our concerns about false and unjustifiable Armenian genocide allegations helped convince him to vote against such resolutions.
 
We urge you to contact your congressional representatives and Senators (http://www.govtrack.us/congress/findyourreps.xpd) and make efforts to convince them of your position on this issue. If you reside in Texas Congressional District 7, please call or send an email to Honorable John Culberson, thanking him for supporting us.
