Schiff Condemns ‘Al Qaeda Affiliated’ Attacks on Kessab

Rep. Adam Schiff

WASHINGTON—Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA) on Thursday released a statement on the attacks by Al Qaeda-affiliated terrorists against Kessab Armenians and Christians.

“The vicious attacks by al Qaeda affiliated terrorists against Armenians and other Christians in the Syrian town of Kessab in northern Syria are beyond appalling. These attacks, which reportedly originated in Turkey, reflect the depth of the depravity to which the conflict in Syria has fallen. I have been in touch with the State Department and have been assured that we are working with Armenian, Syrian and Turkish officials to determine exactly what happened and how to prevent further acts of such barbarity,” said Schiff.

“The Syrian civil war has been a disaster for all of Syria’s people, but especially vulnerable minority populations. I have been working on multiple fronts to help Syrian Christians, including working to secure humanitarian parole for Syrians with approved immigrant petitions and to ensure that humanitarian relief is distributed to all of Syria’s citizens,” concluded Schiff’s statement.

    Imagine … you leave your home with your cloths… in this century…
    Imagine … Imagine …and let us feel with everyone who left …
    Imagine there are godless people on this earth still they do what they want to do…
    They never feel with others… like the Seljuk-Turks…
    Who know how to close communication with world’s nation …
    Thus…can do anything on earth …
    Can kill, confiscate, rape ,deny, lie …
    Imagine and feel you are in their place …
    Without food, without cloths, without bath for days…
    Waiting others to give bread…!
    Imagine and feel with humans like us who passed so many genocides …
    and new one arrived to act in the same way…in this advance century
    Imagine how can you help… What can you do…!!!
    To teach those barbaric so- called remnant of Ottoman’s race…
    Who are close alai to the most Democratic Congress named the USA…!!!
    Helping them to continue their savageness…
    To kill innocent people …burn their homes and temples …and curse their faith…
    And be proud for what they did…
    Please read in the news papers what they say…
    and how proud they are with their inhumanity…
    Can you be a friend with such a cruel genes…!!!
