'My personal view,' he said, 'is that No Place For Hate is not credible as long as the ADL is unable to unequivocally recognize the genocide.'...The MMA's decision to do so yesterday will send a 'clear message' to communities that still welcome the program, said Sharistan Melkonian, chairwoman of the Armenian National Committee of Eastern Massachusetts."
