Protest to Stop Turkey's Role in Attacking Kessab, Syria

Shocking as it may seem, the report of this attack did not appear in the New York Times nor did it appear in the Wall Street Journal!

"Protest to Stop Turkey's Role in Attacking Kessab
Friday, March 28, 2014 2-4PM

The AYF, along with various religious and political groups, has organized a protest in front of the Turkish Consulate in order to put a stop to Turkey's role in the attacks against Armenian civilians. Buses will be provided from St. Mary's Church in Glendale (500 S. Central Ave.) promptly at 1pm. For more details and questions, please call (818) 507-1933.

The last few days have been a tumultuous, heavy burden for the Armenian Community due to the atrocities that have occurred in Kessab, Syria. The armed incursion in Kessab began on Friday, March 21, with rebels associated with Al-Qaeda's al-Nusra Front, Sham al-Islam and Ansar al-Sham crossing the Turkish border and attacking the Armenian civilian population of Kessab.

  1. The events in the Crimea and Kessab are connected. Tyrants never sleep and are most vigorous when others do. With the USA committed to a retrenchment and a downsizing of the military, and the many years of misusing its own military, the time became ripe for the tyrants to focus their one eye after that which they have lusted. With the Russians, it is power and land and people. With the Turks, it is a bloodlust that has never been sated.
