A Letter to Tennessee Senators


Greetings Senator,

As an American, but more importantly as an Eastern Orthodox Christian, I am absolutely outraged by the atrocities that are being committed by the Syrian rebels, who are actively and purposely killing Syrian Christians.

I am outraged by the atrocious lies that you guys in the government and the media feed the American People in this country about the involvement of the U.S. with Syria. The U.S. government is actively supporting terrorism. The Syrian Rebels are tied to Al Qaeda, but yet our President and Senate leaders, like John McCain, find it is perfectly acceptable to talk out both sides of their mouths; what I mean by this is they on one hand condemn Al Qaeda and terrorism, but actively support those who carry it out by giving them money and weapons. This is called hypocrisy, Senator. And it needs to end! 

I do not appreciate the attempted genocide of Christians in Syria, sir! I do not appreciate my government being actively involved in such evil while the media remains silent and the American people remain ignorant of the government’s actions.

Just this week “The armed rebels affiliated to the Free Syrian Army (FSA) raided the Christian-populated al-Duvair village in Reef (outskirts of) Homs near the border with Lebanon today and massacred all its civilian residents, including women and children.”

This IS NOT ACCEPTABLE behavior should not be supported nor participated in by the U.S. government. 

I do not appreciate that our tax money is going to fund the killing of those who profess Christ, to topple governments that we do not like, to incite violence and hatred, to murder innocent people, and to support terrorist who will then betray us and seek to come after us.

Our direct involvement in the toppling of regimes in this hostile part of the world is what has lead to the events of 9-11. Ron Paul, and now Rand Paul, have spoken very clearly on what our own CIA calls blowback. Our actions in these parts of the world have consequences, sir.

So as an American, for whom you work, I ask you, no, I tell you, please bring American support of, and involvement in, terrorism to an end. Do not stand by and dress this up in diplomatic language and legal jargon. I ask you as an American Senator to voice the concerns of those being killed in Syria to your fellow Senators and to the President. I ask you to speak out in the Senate about the actions of our government and how they have negative consequences. I ask you to bring to an end the support, whether it be monetary or military, of the Syrian Rebels.

This is not right, sir. This is not right. So above all else, I ask you to do the right thing, which in our government today is very unheard of indeed.

To all my Christian friends, even non-Christians too, Ron Paul once said, “Once you have knowledge [about something] you have an obligation to do something about it!” I plead with you, get knowledge of this situation. I plead with you to write, call, or email your leaders and let them know that America does not stand for the values and atrocious behavior its government is currently adhering to and carrying out. Please do not read this and sit around doing nothing. Voice your concern. Above all else, pray!
