The TV show broadcast live on AMGA, is stuffed with lots of facts and figures about the Syrian crisis that the Western mainstream media stubbornly skirts. Steve Stokes, who is running for Congress in the 28th District, California, presented his platform, discussed the Syrian crisis and the U.S. involvement, during the show, on Thursday, October 30, 2014. Rep. Adam Schiff, his contender, declined the invitation.
Some of the top contributors to Adam Schiff are Pro-Israel entities and the Defense sector, according to OpenSecrets.org. In contrast to his assurances that he welcomes his constituents to meet with him, Adam Schiff has been avoiding a group of his constituents who would like to discuss the Syrian crisis with him. He recently had his staff remove all of Ara Manoogian’s comments from his Facebook page and posted a comment that reads: “Reminder: as this is an official government account, no campaigning is permitted.”
On ABC TV Live with Vrej Agajanian, Johnni Achi, a member of Arab Americans for Syria group, shares information about the Syrian conflict that is largely avoided by the mainstream media.
Ara Manoogian, Harout Bronozian, and Irena Varjabedian staged a protest in front of the headquarters of the Armenian National Committee of America Western Region, in Glendale, CA, demanding the withdrawal of its endorsement of Rep. Adam Schiff over his stance on the Syrian issue, particularly his support of the opposition forces that are notorious for defecting to the ISIS/ISIL.

The Islamic militant group ISIS, formerly known as Al-Qaeda in Iraq, and recently rebranded as the so called Islamic State, is the stuff of nightmares. They are ruthless, fanatical, killers, on a mission, and that mission is to wipe out anyone and everyone, from any religion or belief system and to impose Shari’ah law. The mass executions, beheadings and even crucifixions that they are committing as they work towards this goal are flaunted like badges of pride, video taped and uploaded for the whole world to see. This is the new face of evil.
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.

As a senior member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, which is charged with the oversight of the U.S. Intelligence Community, Congressman Adam Schiff shares the responsibility for erroneous intelligence that has dragged the U.S. into numerous military interventions in the Middle East and surrounding areas.
On Sept. 17, 2014, Congressman Adam Schiff authorized the Secretary of Defense to provide training, equipment, supplies, and other assistance to “appropriately vetted” Syrian opposition groups and individuals for the following purposes:
• To defend the Syrian people from attacks by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL)
• To protect the United States, its allies, and the Syrian people from terrorist threats in Syria; and
• To promote the conditions for a negotiated settlement to end the conflict in Syria)
After a visit to Syria, Adam Schiff announced, on Washington Journal, on Feb. 17, 2005, that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad was not a ‘positive presence’ in the Middle East. Today, the moderate Syrian opposition, for Schiff, appears to be a tool in harmony with his animosity and desire of overthrowing the democratically elected president of a sovereign nation. Despite ample evidence that it was the jihadists, with Turkey’s help, who used sarin gas against civilians in Syria to put the blame on Assad and, thus, cause U.S. military intervention in Syria (See “The Red Line and the Rat Line“ by Pulitzer-prize winning journalist Seymour M. Hersh, Apr. 17, 2014), Schiff continues accusing the Syrian president of ‘gassing his own people’ (“Intel Dem: Airstrike in Syria Won‘t Work,” Sept. 5, 2014)

In October 2013, Human Rights Watch (HRW) published a report titled “You Can Still See Their Blood” that documented the atrocities committed by extremist groups, such as the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) and Jaish al-Muhajireen wal-Ansar, against civilians in Latakia, Syria.
WASHINGTON — With reports indicating that forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar Assad are gaining ground in that country’s brutal civil war, moderate Syrian rebels have told a visiting journalist that the United States is arranging their training in Qatar.
