Two days ago the world was warned:
“Malik Hanna, an official of the Syriac Cross in Qamishli, said: “We, as Christians and Syriacs have been exposed for a hundred years to the massacres by the Ottoman Turks, as the same mentality exists now.” Hanna explained that Christians will be the initial target of the Turkish state, as it did in Afrin region, where churches were targeted in the first place…” (Chamoun-NPA Syria, Oct. 7, 2019)
Qamishli is in Syria along the border with Turkey. Christians and Christianity are being exterminated in the Middle East and no one cares. Trump pretended to care, before he was elected, which makes his betrayal even greater. Even in India, Christian Dalits (untouchables) are lynched by Hindus and almost no one raises their voices, because they are poor.
From North Syria Press Agency, October 7, 2019:
“Christians of Qamishli denounce the Turkish threats: “Our churches are in danger”
Most updates are by twitter, so we put some twitter feeds here. The media constantly calls Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), who have been fighting Islamic State (ISIS), “Kurdish fighters”. They are and were US allies against terrorism, but Trump abandonned them to be slaughtered, as Turkey invades. The Syrian Democratic Council-Forces includes Arabs, Kurds, Syriac, Assyrians, Turkmen and Armenians, as explained in their statement: https://miningawareness.wordpress.com/2019/10/07/syrian-democratic-council-statement-about-the-us-withdrawal-decision/ It includes Christians, who are especially in danger and endangered not only here, but throughout the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). Even in India, Christian untouchables are lynched by Hindus, and almost no one says anything. Syriac Military MFS reports that Christians were killed, immediately after Turkey invaded. Christians are paying dearly for Trump’s betrayal. Turkey’s Erdogan aims to recreate the Ottoman Islamic Caliphate-Empire. This also seems to be a combination of genocide and land grab – kill the people and/or make them refugees; steal their homes and land and perhaps put new settlers on the stolen land. What’s more, there is a lot of oil in this region.
