turkey, the armenians, and congress

The timing of the proposed resolution condemning Turkey for the 1915 atrocities the Ottoman Empire committed against the Armenians is pretty bad and hard to explain. I think Richard Cohen does a good job here on this - 1915 was awful, but it wasn't genocide. The resolution isn't helpful. And Turkey, which has much to admire, needs to allow discussion of the 1915 slaughter of the Armenians.

Considering the eastern part of Turkey is heavily influenced by radical Islam, wouldn't it be kind of a bad idea to get on their bad side?
