Washington (AINA) -- Congresswoman Anna Eshoo, who represents the 18th congressional district in California, has come under heavy criticism for failing to mention Assyrians and Greeks in her statement on the Turkish genocide of Assyrians,... The 18th district includes San Jose, home to 12,000 Assyrians. The Turkish Genocide of Christians occurred during World War One, between 1915 and 1918. The genocide claimed the lives of 750,000 Assyrians (75%), 1 million Greeks and 1. 5 million Armenians. The International Association of Genocide Scholars recognized the Assyrian and Greek genocides in 2007. On this day 102 years ago the world bore witness to the systematic and deliberate annihilation of 1. 5 million Armenians and other minorities... Despite efforts beginning in 1975 to formally recognize the Armenian Genocide, Congress has yet to acknowledge what took place 102 years ago. I'm proud to have consistently cosponsored the Armenian Genocide Resolution in every Congress I've served in to have formal recognition by the government of the United States, and I will not rest until we are successful. She referred to Assyrians and Greeks as "other minorities" even though when combined more were killed than Armenians. This is the second time she has refused to name the Assyrian and Greek victims of the Turkish genocide. Her 2015 statement on the 100th anniversary of the genocide also used the term "other minorities. Carlo Ganjeh, the American representative of the Assyrian Universal Alliance, a global Assyrian umbrella organization, expressed disappointment at Representative Eshoo's failure to name the Assyrians and Greeks in her statement. On April 24, 2017, I learned that the Office of Congresswoman Anna Eshoo had released a statement in support of the Armenian Genocide but had unfortunately not included any statement about the other 2 nations that were victims of the Young Turk... As you may know, these nations also faced the same regretful fate as did our Armenian brothers and sisters. In the past, the office of Congresswoman Eshoo had a policy to include these nations by name versus a generic description of them as "minorities", that potential unintentional oversight has caused a significant issue within our Assyrian American... Could you please consider making the necessary corrections to that statement and add Assyrian/Greek nations are specified. We would hate for the great work of our Congresswoman in the Assyrian community to be in any way tarnished by this potential oversight given her dedication to our Assyrian struggle, as she has been backbone of the Assyrian awareness campaign for... Rosie Malek Yonan, an Assyrian activist and author of The Crimson Field , a novel about the genocide, published an open letter on her blog to Representative Eshoo, in which she said "Assyrians may be a stateless nation, but we are not invisible. We are not nameless and we are certainly not the "other minorities" as you have callously labeled us in your April 24, 2017 statement" and "Is the Assyrian name so offensive to you that you couldn't show some semblance of respect for the Assyrians... Thea Halo, whose mother is Greek and father Assyrian, both survivors of the genocide, and who wrote a book about her mother's experience titled Not Even My Name , said the following in an email to AINA:. As a woman of Assyrian and Pontic Greek decent, I have felt proud of the fact that a fellow Assyrian had been elected to the US Congress. And I am pleased that you have taken it upon yourself to bring the Armenian Genocide to the attention of other members of Congress and call for a Resolution recognizing the Genocide. In 2007, The International Association of Genocide Scholars (IAGS) affirmed that the Assyrians and Pontian and other Asia Minor Greeks, (who had made Asia Minor their home for three and four millennia) had also suffered a genocide comparable to... I believe I speak for the many descendants of this great crime, and for those who actually lived through this crime, such as my mother, who died in 2014 at the age of 105 years, we implore you to set the.
