On October 23, 2014, the Armenian National Committee of America (ANCA) reaffirmed its endorsement of Adam Schiff, the incumbent House Representative. He is running in the California 28th District, where an estimated 23% of the registered voters are Armenian, and the ANCA claims it is entitled to ‘throw community’s electoral support behind U.S. House and Senate candidates with proven track records on Armenian American Issues.’ (see: http://www.anca.org/press_releases/press_releases.php?prid=2390).
Although the ANCA gives Adam Schiff an “A+” score for his ‘proven track record on Armenian American issues,’ it neglected to score his track record on issues regarding his support of the Syrian “moderate” opposition infested with al Qaeda and ISIS/ISIL, which have caused the death of hundreds of thousands of civilians, including Armenians in Syria.
For these reasons, we, the people of the 28th District, are asking for the immediate withdrawal of the ANCA’s endorsement of Adam Schiff. We strongly believe that it is not only wrong, but also unethical and immoral for the ANCA to ‘throw community’s electoral support’ behind a man who has put the lives of that very community’s brothers and sisters at stake in Syria by backing forces that have caused death, destruction of property and displacement of scores of civilians all over Syria.
A peaceful protest will take place on Tuesday, October 28, at 2 p.m. in front of the ANCA-WR office which is located at 104 N. Belmont St., Glendale 91206. A delegation will hand deliver a letter of protest to the ANCA. Please RSVP at https://www.facebook.com/events/863824850314813/. Please join us and make your voice heard!

Please join us at Mainstage Theater/Auditorium of the Glendale Community College, on Friday, October 24, 2014 at 7 pm, for the event “Responding to the Humanitarian Crisis in Syria and Iraq.” Please visit the Facebook Event page to RSVP.
USAID has provided around $3 billion in humanitarian aid to its implementing partners in Syria with the aim of helping the Syrian people. A lot of that aid found its way into the hands of al Qaeda and ISISI/ISIL fighters. We will be discussing how Americans can help the civilians of Syria by guiding the U.S. government and congressional representatives to make wiser decisions about U.S. aid distribution so that it does not fall into the hands of terrorists who perpetuate the war and suffering in Syria, Iraq and the surrounding countries.
Please feel free to share the flyer with any other organizations or individuals you think might find this event beneficial and interesting. For more information, please see Fact Sheet About Rep. Adam Schiff: Crisis in Syria and Middle East
