Is not that ironic? Israel still doesn't recognized Armenian genocide knowing it was used as blueprint for Holocaust.

First of all the Armenian Genocide was not a blueprint for the Holocaust. The Armenian Genocide had its reasons behind it. What i am trying to say is the holocaust was a genocide against the Jews that had no reasoning behind it except that the victims were not of the Christian faith.
The Armenian Genocide happened because of many factors. The first being how the Armenians aided the Russians in World War I with thousands of soldiers and also resources. This helped the Russians in deploying close to a 100,000 soldiers across the Turkish border with Russia at the time.
The second factor leading to the Armenian genocide would be how at the time the Armenians wanted independence from the Turkish Ottoman Empire and since they weren't as strong as Greece and Serbia who were former Ottoman states they chose Guerrilla warfare just like the Americans during their revolutionary war. The only difference between the Americans during the revolutionary war and the Armenians during this time was that the the Americans targeted British Troops while the Armenians raided and burned down whole villages, and killed and raped innocent women and children. These terrorist attacks lead to the death of tens of thousands of unarmed Turkish civilians.
Lastly, the Armenian genocide wasn't the death of 1.5 million people. 1.5 million people is the maximum historians have agreed upon. It is believed the death toll of the Armenian Genocide ranged from 300,000 to 1.5 million people which is nothing close to what the Armenian people did to the Turks.
