Kim Kardashian Channels Inner Bride While Honoring Genocide Survivors (PHOTOS)

Kim KardashianKim Kardashian seems to be everywhere all at once. She's been back and forth to Paris several times in preparation for her wedding with Kanye West later this month, Monday night she was in NYC for the Met Gala, and by Tuesday, she was back in LA for a USC SHOAH Foundation event.

The foundation is dedicated to remembering and honoring victims of genocide, and Kim tweeted a picture with the caption, "Honored to be at the USC SHOAH Foundation event to support Armenian genocide testimonies. I'm sitting next to the most inspiring 100 year old Armenian genocide survivor."

The Kardashians have long been outspoken on the atrocities of Armenian genocide, so obvs Kim wasn't going to miss making an appearance, but what's a girl to do when she doesn't have time to do things like practice walking in a train before her wedding day?

Wear one to the event, of course. Kim looked positively bridal in an all white ensemble of a Balmain blazer, Alexander McQueen top, and Lanvin skirt.

Oh my gosh, I know it's blurry, but that skirt is absolutely to die for! It drapes just perfectly, is interesting without being overdone ... I haven't really cared one way or another up until now who designs Kim's wedding dress, but now I'm hoping the Lanvin rumors are true.

In all seriousness, I think it's fantastic that she took time out of her busy schedule to go to this event. Genocide is a terrible crime against humanity, and every story needs to be remembered and retold.

What do you think of Kim's appearance at the USC SHOAH Foundation event?

KK believes in a myth. Genocide is a long-discredited political claim. Most recently, the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) refuted it in its Dec 17, 2013 verdict on Perincek vs Switzerland that "[t]he existence of a 'genocide', which was a precisely defined legal concept, was not easy to prove". The ECHR "doubted that there could be a general consensus… given that historical research was, by definition, open to discussion and a matter of debate, without necessarily giving rise to final conclusions or to the assertion of objective and absolute truths". Thus, the ECHR created a legal precedent of inadmissibility of any comparison

between the Holocaust and the Armenian claims; the latter lacks what the former clearly has: concrete historical facts, clear legal basis, and existence of the "acts had been found by an international court to be clearly established". Wartime tragedy and suffering engulfed all the peoples of the area during WWI, not just the Armenians. Besides, Armenians were never totally blameless, innocent bystanders, as they deceptively claim. My father's entire family was killed by the Armenian gangs and I do not find my pain in the deceptive and fallacious Armenian narrative; neither can miilions of Turks today. Armenians conveniently ignore the many Armenian rebellions, countless acts of terrorism, treason, greedy territorial demands and the immense Turkish suffering they caused before, during and after WWI.
