Charny added that Knesset is expected to hold hearings on the Armenian Genocide recognition. “As a whole, Knesset held a voting on hearings of the mater for the third time in Israel’s history,” he said, adding that any voting is a step forward for the Armenian Genocide recognition.

“Our opposition representatives managed to frustrate the Genocide recognition process earlier. But his time the offer on holding hearings was transferred to the committee of Education, Culture and Sports,” noted Charny.

Charny added that earlier he and his colleagues were not optimistic about the mater, but there are greater chances for success today.
