Yes, Ilhan sent me her statement. But I don't buy it. It's basically that time-worn distraction hand-wave that 'other people have done worse things in the world'. Rather like saying I can't complain about alleged police brutality in Minneapolis because Chinese police are so much worse. Or like a Trumper relative whose response to my rant about Trump's latest escapade is "But what about Hillary's emails?"

Genocide is wrong, and should be condemned, and whatever excuse you give for not doing so is just not good enough.
