Israel Burns Palestine

Today in Turkey, crowds of demonstrators took to the streets, many holding plackards reading "Israel Burns Palestine", to protest Israel's attempts to topple the democratically elected Palestinian government by collectively punishing Palestinians.

Meanwhile, Turkey's President Ahmet Necdet Sezer visits the Holocaust Museum in Israel; here you can see him solemnly looking at the names of Nazi Holocaust victims.

When, President Ahmet Necdet Sezer, will Ankara dedicate a memorial to the Armenian victims killed in the first holocaust of the 20th century?
