The real reason the British government refuses to call Isis's killings genocide

Post by Guest on Sat Apr 23, 2016 8:21 am

Government is reluctant to introduce the term genocide into international politics in case it is used describe the Armenian massacres – and offends Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan

George Osborne announced at a parliamentary reception this week that the Government will increase its support for the Holocaust Educational Trust by £500,000. There will also be funding, he added, for a statue of Frank Foley, a British intelligence officer who helped thousands of Jews to escape from Nazi Germany. The Chancellor spoke of the horrors of genocide, of taking his family to see the concentration camp at Dachau last month, and praised the courage of those who had helped the refugees at a time of peril. He raised a few smiles saying that some of the money pledged “would come from fines paid by those who fixed the Libor rates – people who showed the worst of values to those who have the best of British values”.
