The following sentence tells the whole story quite well:
A Knesset panel has announced its plan to hold the first official public debate on the Armenian Genocide, officials said Wednesday, in what many see as a further sign of Israel's deteriorating ties with long-time ally Turkey.I don't know what is more revolting: futzing around with the barenaked truth for so many years or "recognizing" this same truth when the political stars became aligned just so...
And of course, I can't refrain from some posturing: I am quite proud of saying this some time ago:
...start selling your principles for political convenience and be sure that at some point in time somebody will sell you down the river. For convenience.
