Timing is everything

Two Armenian-Americans have sued the Turkish government in California for the Armenian genocide of nearly a century ago.

The suit seeks class action status on behalf of all Armenians and Turkish citizens "who were deprived of their citizenship, brutally deported, (and) had their property seized" by the Turkish government.

Hmmm. Here’s the law firm. I imagine they’re preparing a Nakba lawsuit as we speak. (thanks to Reem Mokhtar)
