SAC Hails House Vote Calling for Assad War Crimes Tribunal

Published on Mar 14, 2016

March 2011, in the south of Syria, four coffins for four Syrians protesting peacefully against their government – the first to die in a conflict that has taken as many 400,000 lives.


The Syrian American Council, the largest and oldest grassroots Syrian-American organization in the United States, hailed the decision by the U.S. House of Representatives tonight to approve H. Con Res. 121 which condemned the Assad regime’s war crimes in Syria and called for President Obama to direct his Ambassador to the United Nations to promote the establishment of a War Crimes Tribunal for Syria. The resolution passed on the eve of the fifth anniversary of the Syrian revolution which began on March 15th 2011.

SAC thanks Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ) for sponsoring this resolution, as well as Rep. Ed Royce (R-CA), Rep. Eliot Engel (D-NY), Rep. Joseph Pitts (R-PA), and Rep. Erik Paulsen (R-MN) for co-sponsoring. The resolution passed resoundingly with a vote of 392 to 3. SAC urges the Senate to follow suit and move quickly to pass the measure.

The text of the resolution can be found here, and a summary can be found here. SAC would like to thank the Syrian American community and other fellow Americans for their mobilization in support of the measure.

SAC expresses its extreme disappointment with Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI), Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI), and Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) for their shameful vote against holding the Assad regime accountable for war crimes that have created the greatest humanitarian crisis since the Second World War. Although these three representatives have consistently voted against American support of the Syrian revolution, today’s vote represents a new low.

The massacre of Douma by Assad regime on Aug 16-2015 part II

It is believed by SOHR (The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights) and others that war planes fired missiles into a heavily-populated market then another when people were trying to attend to the wounded.

Activist Mazen al-Shami told The Associated Press that ‘the regime is targeting civilians to avenge’ a recent capture of a local army base by dissidents.

Since 2011, the US has repeatedly asked President Assad to step down and there are around 10m people from Syria in need of humanitarian assistance, the UN estimates.

Assad has been in power since 2000, succeeding his father who had ruled for 30 years.

European parliament accused of ‘hiding away’ proof of torture by Assad regime

The European parliament has ruled against holding a major public exhibition of photographs documenting torture and abuse in Syrian government institutions, deeming the images too provocative, “disturbing and offensive”, the Guardian has learned.

The MEPs have decided that the photographs, smuggled out of Syria at great risk by a defector from the Assad regime codenamed Caesar, may only be shown at an undetermined future date in a small conference room on the parliament’s grounds. However, few people are likely to see it there and will not be endorsed by the organisation, even though the exhibition and its horrifying images were officially hosted by the United Nations.

A diplomatic source familiar with the discussions told the Guardian: “These photos are a powerful reminder of the systematic torture and mass killings ongoing in Syria – the very least the European parliament can do is bear witness.

Syria Assad’s Genocidal Crimes

Syrian Civil War “Holocaust” – Over 250,000 killed, some 20,000 were children since 2011 uprising.

The “responsibility to protect”—known in international-relations circles as R2P—is a simple notion: Nations must protect their citizens from genocide, war crimes, crimes against humanity and ethnic cleansing, and must take action to help other nations whose governments can’t or won’t protect their peoples.

The Obama administration’s apparent distancing from R2P speaks to the tremendous challenge of mobilizing Americans—whether politicians or the public—to support action on humanitarian grounds. Saving lives is a hard sell these days.

Asked about the doctrine at her July confirmation hearing to be ambassador to the United Nations, Samantha Power said it is “less important, I think, than U.S. practice and U.S. policy, which is that when civilians are being murdered by their governments or by nonstate actors, it’s incumbent on us to look to see [what we] might do in order to ameliorate the situation.”


70th Anniversary of Holocaust

US President Barack Obama: We commemorate all of the victims of the Holocaust, pledging never to forget, and recalling the cautionary words of the author and survivor of Auschwitz Primo Levi, “It happened, therefore it can happen again. . . . It can happen anywhere.” Today we come together and commit, to the millions of murdered souls and all survivors, that it must never happen again.

Germany’s president Joachim Gauck:We say this at a time when we in Germany must work to reach a new understanding of the coexistence of different religious and cultural traditions. The community in which we all want to live will only flourish if we respect the dignity of the individual and if we live in solidarity.

Bristish PM David Cameron vows:
Holocaust Memorial Day brings people together across the world. As PM I will ensure we keep Britain’s promise to remember. Britain will “remember today, tomorrow and every generation to come”.

The Queen: We remember all those affected: those who died, those who have rebuilt their lives in Britain, and the rescuers and liberators who took great risks to assist and save their fellow human beings. Many refugees and survivors of the camps and ghettoes found a home in the United Kingdom and have given us their energy and commitment.

Francois Hollande tells French Jews: France will protect all its children – all religions and acknowledged that anti-Muslim acts have also proliferated. Your place is here, in your home.

Pope Francis: Auschwitz cries out with the pain of immense suffering and pleads for a future of respect, peace and encounter among peoples.
