The New Anatolian
Oct 17 2006

The majority of French people are against the Armenian bill that was
passed by the French Parliament last week introducing prison terms
and fines for those who question the genocide claims, a new public
opinion poll found.

According to an Internet poll, 68 percent of French people oppose the
bill while only 26 percent support it. Just 6 percent of participants
in the poll declined to comment on the controversial measure.

While those opposing the bill thinks it serves Armenian interests,
some stated that it could create danger for Armenians living in Turkey.
