Dear Compatriots, Relatives, Sisters and Brothers,
Once again, the Armenian people are in turbulent waters. Armenia and the Diaspora have been hit hard with the COVID-19 pandemic. In particular, the Armenian community in Lebanon is faced with extreme hardship. The ongoing political and economic challenges are unprecedented. The Armenian Revolutionary Federation (ARF) Eastern Region Central Committee is calling on our communities to take action.
The Armenian community in Lebanon is in dire need of help. It is our moral obligation to lend a hand to our brothers and sisters. Our monetary contribution will lessen the heavy burden under which the Lebanese Armenians are crumbling. With your contribution, you will reassure them that we stand together in this time of need.
We lent a hand when our compatriots in Syria needed help during the Syrian war. We lent a hand when our compatriots in Artsakh needed help. We should do the same today for the Armenian community in Lebanon.
Let’s help our brothers and sisters in Lebanon. They need our help today more than ever. Give generously to the community that is one of the pillars of our Diaspora. Now, it is our turn to return the favor.
I just read the following statement of the Armenian Foreign Minister.
“As the model citizens of the country, the Lebanese Armenians share the achievements and hardships of life in this country on equal terms with others. Any manifestation of xenophobia is very worrying and is directed primarily against the entire Lebanese society. We are sure that the whole Lebanese society will be tough against any such manifestations,”
Were Armenians not model citizens of Turkey, of Syria, of Iraq? What good did that do? Can’t we see what is coming?
Exactly!!!! When I tell the Armenians that they have to get out of Muslim countries, they attack me as if I’m insulting them. How can they be so blind? History will repeat itself. Look at all the signs. Armenians need to get out of Muslim countries now! We need to raise funds to relocate them to Armenia, the way we did for those in Kessab who are living happily in Armenia now
The article needs context. What is happening in Lebanon
The pillar of the Armenian diaspora today is Armenia itself.I think all Armenian organizations should help the Armenians of Lebanon to go to Armenia and strengthen Armenia. There s no use in staying in Lebanon, the civil wars will never end in Lebanon. Sooner or later Lebanon will fall, lets not waist our money in Lebanon. Use the money to help the Armenians to move to Armenia.
