TURKS OF USA ARE NOT DETERMINED. SOME OF THEM DEFEND KERRY
26 Oct 04
The Armenian community of America will not give its vote George W. Bush
as that will mean to boost him in his anti-Genocide acknowledgment
stance and to justify his broken promise. It doesnÃ¢[email protected]~Yt seem strange,
from this point of view, that the traditional Armenian parties, mainly
Liberal Democratic Party, defend John Kerry and call on voting for him.
It seemed that this fact and John KerryÃ¢[email protected]~Ys years-old activity for
Armenian Genocide acknowledgment will make the Turkish community of
America decide for Bush. Though Kerry is not popular among Turk voters
for his determination as regards Genocide acknowledgment, BushÃ¢[email protected]~Ys
administration is also seen as destructive for the ongoing Iraqi war
and problems within the US economy.
To put it simply, the Turks are not yet determined, contrary to the
suppositions. Some of them defend Kerry saying that all previous
candidates gave suchlike promises to Armenians but none of them kept
his promise because Turkey is AmericaÃ¢[email protected]~Ys key ally. The other part
of Turkish community thinks that Bush has already learnt on his own
mistakes and is going to vote for him.
Having informed about all these, Turkish Sabah notes that the Turkish
community of America is not united as to whom to vote for.
