Political blackmail

This paragraph from today’s NYT tells you one reason that Howard Berman and others pushed through the resolution on the Armenian genocide:

Turkish analysts have expressed concern that newly strained Israeli-Turkish relations would hurt their country’s case among Israel’s allies in the House [i.e., the Israel lobby] during wrangling over whether to move the resolution forward.

But Abraham H. Foxman, national director of the Anti-Defamation League, said that he believed the fears were misplaced and that a more salient factor in halting the resolution might instead be Turkey’s throwing its support behind new sanctions on Iran that are being pushed by the United States.
