#Thread on Trump, Pompeo and Pence's irresponsible banalization of the words "Genocide" and "Holocaust" at the State of the Union address (#SOTU) , the #WarsawSummit and #MSC2019.
1) Raphael Lemkin, known as the father of the Genocide Convention, rejected the terms "Barbarity", "Mass murder", "Denationalization", "Germanization", "Magyarization" and many others to depict Hitler's attempt to annihilate the Jewish population.
2) He wanted a word that would - according to @AmbPower44 in her book "A Problem from Hell" - "connote a practice so horrid and so irreparable that the very utterance of the word would galvanize all who heard it". To Lemkin words mattered. So he came up with the word "Genocide".

1/2-Even if the criminal regime in #Iran wanted to, couldn't have done a better job than what @FinancialTimes has done through its @JamesShotter,@_evonhuber& @Najmeh_Tehran to demonize Iran's main opposition,&try to rescue the regime,that's at the brink of being overthrown.
2/2-It's astonishing to see how @FT has become a mouthpiece for the ayatollahs against anyone that speaks the truth about a criminal regime that has brought nothing but destruction, poverty, mass executions &terrorism. Why @Najmeh_Tehran &others have totally shut up about these?
Wittingly or unwittingly bashing #MEK,the main opposition to the criminal regime under whatever justification,is complicity in their crimes, including 120000 MEK activists being slaughtered for standing to the religious dictatorship ruling.Stop the shameful business.#WarsawSummit
