John McCain rages at a delegation of church officials requesting protection for Syria’s Christians from jihadi rebels

With momentum building, just weeks before the March 9th “Stop the Christian Genocide in Syria” protest Senator John McCain has, figuratively speaking, spit in the face of innocent Antiochian Greeks experiencing horrors on a biblical scale at the hands of Islamist extremists.

A delegation of Syrian Christian Church Officials touring Washington in hopes of finding a peaceful solution to the Syrian conflict, were shocked when the Senator pulled a temper tantrum and walked out on the delegation, which was made up of Armenian, Assyrian, Roum, and other Christian officials.

Harut Sassounian: Senator McCain Offends Visiting Syrian Church Leaders

Sen. John McCain is a prime example of how U.S. officials so often have misjudged overseas crises, believing that the best way to bring democracy to a country is through massive US bombing and invasion.

The Arizona Senator has been highly critical of Pres. Obama’s ‘arm the rebels strategy,’ urging a more direct US military intervention in Syria. Sen. McCain does not seem to understand that toppling Pres. Bashar Al-Assad would result in more deaths and destruction, and turn Syria into a major hub of international terrorism. Over 30,000 Islamic Jihadists from dozens of countries currently are fighting the Syrian government and each another — surely, not to bring democracy to Syria!

In fact, the former Republican presidential candidate is so obsessed with beating the drums of war that reportedly he behaved in an ill-tempered and discourteous manner with a group of high-ranking Christian Syrian leaders, just because they were not advocating violent regime change. The church delegation had come to Washington last month seeking a peaceful resolution to the Syrian conflict and protection for Christians numbering around two million — 10% of the country’s population.

The visiting Church leaders included Bishop Armash Nalbandian, Primate of the Armenian Apostolic Church of Damascus, and representatives of the Presbyterian, Evangelical, Syrian Orthodox, and Greek Orthodox churches of Syria. The delegation met with members of Congress, State Department officials, U.S., NGO’s, academics, religious leaders, and members of the media.

The Syrian clergymen were gratified with their Washington visit, except for their unpleasant encounter with Sen. McCain, as described by Judicial Watch:

“Hell-bent on arming opposition forces in Syria — despite strong evidence that they’re run by Islamic terrorists — John McCain displayed behavior unbecoming of a United States Senator during a recent meeting with Syrian Christian leaders touring Capitol Hill.… Senator McCain, an Arizona Republican, evidently doesn’t want to hear negative stories about the rebels he’s working to arm. So he stormed out of a closed-door meeting with the Syrian clergy officials last week…. McCain marched into the committee room yelling, according to a high-level source that attended the meeting, and quickly stormed out. ‘He was incredibly rude,’ the source told Judicial Watch…. Following the shameful tantrum, McCain reentered the room and sat briefly, but refused to make eye contact with the participants, instead ignoring them by looking down at what appeared to be random papers.”

Action Alert

This outrageous and undignified behavior of a US Senator in the face of ongoing Genocide in the 21st century is unacceptable. With Roum and Assyrian spiritual leaders still missing, and atrocities coming closer and closer to Roum region of Wadi al-Nasara (“Valley of Christians”) the time of action is NOW! It is Senators, like Mr. McCain, who have continued to push for war in Syria, and aid to the very terrorists who are exterminating our brethren in Syria.

Due to the complete lack of respect by Senator McCain; We, the Daimones of Collective Hellenism call on outraged Greeks to make their voices be heard! Senator McCain is an anti-Greek, and must be held accountable for his childish behavior.
