Visitation dates set for troubled Glendale cemetery

A Los Angeles County Superior Court judge has approved a public visitation schedule for troubled Grand View Memorial Park in Glendale, which has been closed since 2006 after state inspectors discovered improperly buried remains at the cemetery.

Attorneys representing plaintiffs in a class-action lawsuit against the cemetery’s owners won a $3.87-million settlement late last year, an agreement that also was approved Tuesday by Superior Court Judge Anthony Mohr.

The visitation schedule essentially mirrors that of the same period last year, with allowances for Armenian Genocide commemoration, Good Friday, Mother’s Day and other holidays.

The Glendale News-Press has all the details.

Armenian genocide is a long discredited, biased, and political claim. According to 1948 UN Convention, intent must be proven after due process at a competent tribunal for a genocide verdict to stand. No such tribunal (a la Nuremberg) was convened and no genocide verdict exists. Insisting on a non-exisiting label, purely based on a racist and dishonest version of history, boils down to lynching. When the six T's of the Turkish-Armenian conflict are all truthfully considered, it will be obvious that it was a inter-communal warfare fought by Christian and Muslim irregulars. Turth should not be a fodder to newpaper ratings, political support, or other such benefits.
