Harman letter angers Armenian activists

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREChargers go winless in AFC West with season-ending loss in Kansas CityHarman, who is a co-sponsor of the resolution, was confronted Saturday at a rally for Assembly candidate Warren Furutani by young Armenian activists chanting “Hypocrite, liar, genocide denier.” The protesters plan to appear at more events where the South Bay Democrat is scheduled to speak, said Zanku Armenian, spokesman for the Armenian National Committee of America. “We will be following her around,” Armenian said, “to the point where people are not going to want to invite her because she will be radioactive.” The controversy erupted last week, after Rep. Tom Lantos, D-San Mateo, scheduled a vote on the resolution in the House Foreign Affairs Committee. The vote is scheduled for today. On Oct. 3, Harman sent Lantos a letter urging him to reconsider. She warned that the resolution would be “destabilizing not only to Armenian-Turkish relations but also to our efforts to create stability in the greater Middle East.” HOUSE: South Bay legislator says genocide resolution she co-sponsored could destabilize the greater Mideast. By Gene Maddaus STAFF WRITER Rep. Jane Harman is facing protests and a flood of angry phone calls after urging a House committee chairman not to allow a vote on a resolution to recognize the Armenian genocide. The issue is of utmost concern to the local Armenian community. Though more than a million Armenians died at the hands of the Ottoman Turks from 1915 to 1923, the U.S. government has steadfastly refused to characterize those events as a “genocide.” Turkey, a key U.S. ally in the region, has hired lobbyists to defeat similar resolutions in the past. In the letter, Harman warned Lantos that now is “the wrong time” to consider the resolution and urged him to avoid anything that would “embarrass or isolate the Turkish leadership.” She also mentioned that she had traveled to Turkey earlier this year and met with the prime minister. The Armenian groups obtained the letter, after which Harman released it on her Web site. Harman is one of the resolution’s 226 co-sponsors, a fact that especially galls the activists. “Although she was a co-sponsor, she covertly flipped her position and in a secret manner sent a letter to Tom Lantos,” said Vache Thomassian, co-chairperson of the Armenian Youth Federation. “She went all the way to the absolute opposite end and was advocating its complete dismissal.” The activists said they knew of no other representative who had publicly endorsed the measure while privately working against it. “I was infuriated that she would change her mind that way,” said Lori Khajadourian, a member of the federation’s South Bay chapter. “To us, it seems like a betrayal.” A few dozen protesters showed up Saturday at the Furutani event in Lakewood. Harman was there to support Furutani’s campaign for the 55th District Assembly seat, but her speech was interrupted by chanting. Afterwards, she met the group in the parking lot, where she argued that her objection was about timing and not about the substance of the resolution. “I am not arguing for a second about what happened in Turkey 100 years ago,” she said in a video clip that the activists posted on YouTube. “I condemn acts of – I would use the `genocide’ word, sure I would – I’m not denying it.” She also noted that her father had fled Nazi Germany. “I come from a community where there was genocide against my people, too,” she said. “The letter I sent was about the timing of the vote and not about the grievous harm that was caused to your community.” She went on to argue that the current Turkish government is playing a helpful role in the Middle East and in Darfur. The activists were not satisfied. “I don’t think a country that denies genocide should be patted on their back for what they’re doing in Darfur,” Khajadourian said. “She shouldn’t be allowing herself to be bullied by what this country might do if they pass this resolution.” Armenian said he believed Harman had been influenced by Turkey’s lobbyists, including the firms of former House Democratic leader Dick Gephardt and former House Appropriations Chairman Bob Livingston, a Republican. Though Harman has vowed to vote against the resolution if it comes to the floor, the activists are hoping she will change her mind. Failing that, they believe she should be voted out of office. “Her hypocrisy on this issue is morally reprehensible,” Armenian said. “By signing the letter to Lantos, she may as well have been signing her resignation letter.” Furutani’s campaign manager, Sandra Sanchez, said the protest did not derail the kickoff event. “Everything was resolved very amicably,” she said, adding that Furutani supports the resolution. gene.maddaus@dailybreeze.com160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Top stories The science of false confessions transforming blood types and Brazils

first_imgOn any given day, hospitals across the United States burn through some 16,500 liters (35,000 pints) of donated blood for emergency surgeries, scheduled operations, and routine transfusions. But recipients can’t take just any blood: For a transfusion to be successful, the patient and donor blood types must be compatible. Now, researchers analyzing bacteria in the human gut have discovered that microbes there produce two enzymes that can convert the common type A into a more universally accepted type.Brazilian government accused of suppressing data that would call its war on drugs into questionIs Brazil experiencing a drug epidemic? The answer to that question has spiraled into a legal battle between scientists and government officials over the release of a national drug use survey done by the renowned Oswaldo Cruz Foundation in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Researchers familiar with the study accuse government officials of suppressing publication of the survey because it contradicts a political assertion that drug abuse is a growing and widespread problem in Brazil.Watch an ant rip apart a spiderweb to rescue a siblingAnts are famous for putting themselves at risk for the wellbeing of their colony, but desert harvester ants are especially heroic. New research suggests the insects charge into spiderwebs to rescue their ensnared nestmates, sometimes ripping the silk apart to free them.Spotted for the first time: a fish holding its breath underwaterLike us, fish need oxygen to survive. But to breathe, most pull oxygen-containing water into their mouths and pump it through their gill chambers before expelling it out of their gill slits. Now, for the first time, scientists have seen fish “holding” that breath, some for up to 4 minutes at a time.

That’s in part because standard interrogation techniques place suspects under psychological stresses from which a confession can seem like the only escape. Now, psychologists and other scientists studying interrogation methods and false confessions are placing more scrutiny on a piece of evidence once held as irrefutable in a court of law.Type A blood converted to universal donor blood with help from bacterial enzymes Country * Afghanistan Aland Islands Albania Algeria Andorra Angola Anguilla Antarctica Antigua and Barbuda Argentina Armenia Aruba Australia Austria Azerbaijan Bahamas Bahrain Bangladesh Barbados Belarus Belgium Belize Benin Bermuda Bhutan Bolivia, Plurinational State of Bonaire, Sint Eustatius and Saba Bosnia and Herzegovina Botswana Bouvet Island Brazil British Indian Ocean Territory Brunei Darussalam Bulgaria Burkina Faso Burundi Cambodia Cameroon Canada Cape Verde Cayman Islands Central African Republic Chad Chile China Christmas Island Cocos (Keeling) Islands Colombia Comoros Congo Congo, the Democratic Republic of the Cook Islands Costa Rica Cote d’Ivoire Croatia Cuba Curaçao Cyprus Czech Republic Denmark Djibouti Dominica Dominican Republic Ecuador Egypt El Salvador Equatorial Guinea Eritrea Estonia Ethiopia Falkland Islands (Malvinas) Faroe Islands Fiji Finland France French Guiana French Polynesia French Southern Territories Gabon Gambia Georgia Germany Ghana Gibraltar Greece Greenland Grenada Guadeloupe Guatemala Guernsey Guinea Guinea-Bissau Guyana Haiti Heard Island and McDonald Islands Holy See (Vatican City State) Honduras Hungary Iceland India Indonesia Iran, Islamic Republic of Iraq Ireland Isle of Man Israel Italy Jamaica Japan Jersey Jordan Kazakhstan Kenya Kiribati Korea, Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, Republic of Kuwait Kyrgyzstan Lao People’s Democratic Republic Latvia Lebanon Lesotho Liberia Libyan Arab Jamahiriya Liechtenstein Lithuania Luxembourg Macao Macedonia, the former Yugoslav Republic of Madagascar Malawi Malaysia Maldives Mali Malta Martinique Mauritania Mauritius Mayotte Mexico Moldova, Republic of Monaco Mongolia Montenegro Montserrat Morocco Mozambique Myanmar Namibia Nauru Nepal Netherlands New Caledonia New Zealand Nicaragua Niger Nigeria Niue Norfolk Island Norway Oman Pakistan Palestine Panama Papua New Guinea Paraguay Peru Philippines Pitcairn Poland Portugal Qatar Reunion Romania Russian Federation Rwanda Saint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da Cunha Saint Kitts and Nevis Saint Lucia Saint Martin (French part) Saint Pierre and Miquelon Saint Vincent and the Grenadines Samoa San Marino Sao Tome and Principe Saudi Arabia Senegal Serbia Seychelles Sierra Leone Singapore Sint Maarten (Dutch part) Slovakia Slovenia Solomon Islands Somalia South Africa South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands South Sudan Spain Sri Lanka Sudan Suriname Svalbard and Jan Mayen Swaziland Sweden Switzerland Syrian Arab Republic Taiwan Tajikistan Tanzania, United Republic of Thailand Timor-Leste Togo Tokelau Tonga Trinidad and Tobago Tunisia Turkey Turkmenistan Turks and Caicos Islands Tuvalu Uganda Ukraine United Arab Emirates United Kingdom United States Uruguay Uzbekistan Vanuatu Venezuela, Bolivarian Republic of Vietnam Virgin Islands, British Wallis and Futuna Western Sahara Yemen Zambia Zimbabwe (left to right): DREW GURIAN; ISTOCK.COM/ARINDAM GHOSH; FABIO TEIXEIRA/AFP/GETTY IMAGES Email Click to view the privacy policy.
