Trump Says There Were ‘Good People on Both Sides’ of Armenian Genocide

Refusing to sign a bipartisan resolution condemning the 100-year-old genocide, US President Donald Trump insisted Tuesday that there were “good people on both sides” of the Armenian genocide.

“Listen, there were some very good Ottomans and there were some very bad Ottomans, believe me,” Trump said during a press conference called to discuss infrastructure legislation. “Not all the Ottomans who went there to kill the Armenians were interested in genocide. Some were just upset about what happened to Australian Archduke Frank Fernandez (sic).”

Trump also insisted that the Armenians were “no angels,” claiming that they had “really treated that Milosevic guy very poorly.”

“There were bad people on both sides and there were good people on both sides,” Trump concluded. “But I have a very good relationship with the King of Turkey [President Recep Tayyip Erdogan] and I have a very good relationship with Kanye, so it’s really best if we just stay neutral here.”

    That depends on who is really blamed for the Armenian genocide. I guess if the “Donme (Crypto) Jews were responsible then Trump would say that “there were good people on both sides”
    but if the blame is placed on Turkish Muslims then the Armenian (Christian) victims were the only good people.

    The Donme (Crypto) Jews were a powerful segment of the world Jewish population and the Zionist movement. Many became Crypto jews after Sabbatai Zevi, a 16th century self proclaimed Jewish Messiah who claimed that he was the true and last Messiah. He had a following of tens of thousands but when he tried to convince the Ottoman Sultan that he was the true Messiah the Sultan put him to a test.

    The Sultan wanted Sabbatai Zevi to die and then to resurrect like Christ did. When faced with death Sabbatai Zevi converted to Islam but secretly practiced Judaism. He became a Crypto Jew. Thousands of European Jews followed his example, traveling to Turkey, converting and secretly practicing Judaism.

    They became the Donme Jews. There was an older line that came from Spain after King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella expelled the Cryto Jews from Spain for siding with the Moors while pretending to be Catholics.

    Sabbatai Zevi had a profound influence on Zionism of the 19th century. His teachings shaped help shape Zionism. In 1916 when England and France engaged in the Sykes/Picot agreement that laid the groundwork for a future Israel, some claim the Donme Jews got rid of the Christian Armenians before they could lay claim to the holy lands as well.
