In his Twitter account, Roni Margulies, the Jewish columnist of the Taraf daily of Turkey, wrote that they will compel the Turkish authorities to answer for the Genocide.
“Thirty-thousand people lived in [the Turkish city of] Diyarbakir in 1890. Close to ten thousand of them were Muslims, ten thousand were Armenians, and the remaining were other Christians and Jews. Then some things happened, and now everyone in Diyarbakir is Muslim. Every time I come to Diyarbakir I think about who will answer for these [past] 90-100 years.
We will force the Turkish authorities to give an account for the Genocide, forcible displacement, pain, and suffering. I did not say the state will give an account. I am saying we will compel the state to give an account for all that,” Roni Margulies wrote in his Twitter account, during his last visit to Diyarbakir.
