/PanARMENIAN.Net/ "If Turkish authorities continue their attacks
of famous Turkish writer Orhan Pamuk due to his recognition of
the Armenian Genocide of 1915, many of us - those, who support
Turkey - will have to change their attitude toward that country,"
stated European Parliament member, British Laborite Denis MacShane,
reported RFE/RL referring to the Independent (UK). The other day
Turkish prosecution brought a charge against Pamuk, who stated a
few months before that Turks in their time had killed a million of
Armenians. In Denis MacShane's words, "it is a painful strike for
the UK and all politicians, who support Turkey."
