SAF/NE Demonstration in Boston
The Syrian American Forum New England chapter organized a demonstration at the City Hall Plaza in Boston, MA today to condemn the barbaric attacks of the so-called "ISIS" on the Syrian Assyrians in northeast Syria.
In light of the recent attacks by the so-called ISIS against Syrian Assyrian villages in northeast Syria, which adds to the long list of criminal activities by terrorists who spare no ethnic or religious group, we started this petition that aims to:
1- Save Syrians from terrorism
2- Take the debate back to the root issue: finding a political solution to the Syrian crisis.
The Historical Syrian Assyrian Community Is the Latest Victim
Save Syrians... Stop Enabling Militants

Syrian American Forum
I call on the administration and the congress to immediately halt all support to the armed militants in Syria. President Obama said he is acting to “degrade and ultimately destroy” the so-called ISIS. Any effort to achieve this result rests on cooperation with the Syrian government and ultimately on a political solution to the strife of the Syrian people.
Only days ago, while American and other air raids were conducted as part of the U.S. led campaign against the so-called ISIS, terrorists financed, enabled and supported by U.S. allies launched a barbaric assault against civilians in Syria.
In the latest episode of these crimes, the so-called ISIS targeted the historic Assyrian Christian community in northeast Syria. The so-called ISIS committed these senseless acts of terror where dozens of Syrians were killed, hundreds were abducted and countless families uprooted from their communities to escape the onslaught. The terrorists confiscated homes and properties and burned churches. While the crimes of the so-called ISIS transcend all ethnic and religious communities, this latest crime is especially horrific because it is targeting the rich and diverse fabric of Syria.
The so-called ISIS is a terrorist organization that not only threatens the Middle East stability but also the U.S. interests and national security. It has benefited from support the U.S. and its allies provided to other militants in Syria. All the while, the U.S. and allies in the region and beyond remain fixated on calling many of them “moderates”. The so-called ISIS would not have existed and flourished had it not been for the support and enabling of NATO and non-NATO allies of the U.S. The majority of this support found its way to the organizations designated by the U.S. and the U.N. as terrorists.
It is high time to save Syrian lives. It is high time to save Syria.
SAF Condemns Recent ISIS Crimes
For immediate release
Feb 25, 2015
In one of its latest barbaric assaults on the citizens of Syria, terrorists from the so-called ISIS targeted the historic community of Assyrian Christians in northeast Syria.
In these senseless acts of terror, scores of Syrians were killed and hundreds were abducted. In addition, more than 700 Assyrian families were uprooted from their communities to escape the onslaught and took refuge in local churches in al-Hasakah and Qamishli. The ISIS terrorists confiscated homes and properties and burned churches.
This latest crime is especially horrific because it is targeting the rich and diverse fabric of Syria. While the crimes of ISIS transcend all ethnic and religious communities, attacking small and defenseless communities causes irreversible damage to Syria and humanity.
The Syrian American Forum (SAF) condemns this latest attack in the strongest terms and calls on the United States and the international community to work side-by-side with the Syrian authorities to degrade and ultimately destroy this terror organization.
