I know it sounds strange but according to some turkish sources

http://www.haberturk.com/dunya/haber/549510-gerard-depardieu-ankara-soykirimi-taniyacak 

That is what Gerard Depardieu said "Turkey has  launched the process of recognizing Armenian Genocide".

I am not sure if it will be in the form of "recognizing it" but something has to be done in this issue.

I tried to write about it in my column (http://www.turkishclass.com/columns/thehandsom/2010/06/25/armenian-question-iv-final-)

...So in my opinion, as far as the Armenian problem is concerned, I think we are approaching a culminating moment. I think that this issue won’t be a problem anymore in the coming years. (Obviously, we could not persuade the world with our thesis. Year after year, the number of countries accepting the event of 1915 as a genocide is increasing..) 

I think there are some people in the Foreign Ministry who see that this is not a way in which we can continue. Something has to change. Something has to change because of the constant burden of humiliation the foreign ministry personnel face in  first hand.

Who cares what Gerard Depardieu said?

If you seriously believe that Turky will do it, you should go get your head examined.

Of course him being fat, old and french nothing to do with it..

Possibly he has some Armenian friends and he is talking about the subject with no serious knowledge..

However, the stress in my post was nothing to do with him being fat and French..

Why do I sense that the problem has little to do with who said it but with where he stands on the issue lol If G. Depardieu stated he doesn´t believe in the genocide, I doubt Turks would question his opinion or knowledge on the subject. Ha! I´ll even risk saying that his weigh would stop being important in this case {#emotions_dlg.rolleyes}
