Regarding "Waiting for the denial to end", Ha'Aretz, April 17, 2005: While reading this article I almost thought that Ha'Aretz is deliberately helping those who try to deny or play down the scale and character of the Armenian genocide. Why else would the caption of a picture accompanying the article say "The bodies of Armenians slain by the Turks. Men, women and children were said to be killed."? As far as I am aware, few historians dispute the occurence of the murder of 1.5-2.5 million Armenians in the years 1915-1918 in the Turkish part of the Ottoman Empire, or refuse to acknowledge that men, women and children were among the victims of those massacres.
