It’s time for Speaker Pelosi (D-Calif.) to buckle down and help lock in the 218 votes needed to pass the Armenian Genocide Resolution. The atrocities that occurred during World War I must be given their proper historical due. If we fail to remember the past, we are destined to repeat it. As America fights radical Islam in Iraq, we need to remember the lessons of the first genocide.

Speaker Pelosi has been a strong supporter of passing this important legislation for years. The Armenian people, and people committed to human rights everywhere, need her to stand strong and deliver on this one.
