    And yet, if you talk refugee numbers to the US, it is surprisingly low for those two groups compared to other middle eastern sects.

    I think the number of Assyrian Christian refugees admitted to the US in 2016 was something like less than 1% of the total number of Syrian refugees admitted. And, that is the discussion I believe we should have.


    This 45 minute documentary is on Netflix right now about some of the Westerners fighting with the YPG. Pretty interesting. There were quite a few women fighting with them as well.

    I think that a couple of Americans and British volunteers have been killed fighting with the YPG within in the last year and maybe one very recently. And, I think there was an article with interviews about some westerners becoming angry and disillusioned with the YPG that was printed within the last couple of years. I know that the YPG has been involved with the Kurds but I wonder if there are any groups involved with the Assyrian Christians.

    While many of us have a personal definition of domestic terrorism, the US Patriot Act actually defines the term. Interesting that the Patriot Act also expanded the civil forfeiture law to cover assets of those involved in domestic terrorism.

    https://www.aclu.org/other/how-usa-p...stic-terrorism




    Section 802 of the USA PATRIOT Act (Pub. L. No. 107-52) expanded the definition of terrorism to cover ""domestic,"" as opposed to international, terrorism. A person engages in domestic terrorism if they do an act ""dangerous to human life"" that is a violation of the criminal laws of a state or the United States, if the act appears to be intended to: (i) intimidate or coerce a civilian population; (ii) influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or (iii) to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination or kidnapping.

    The civil asset forfeiture power of the United States government is awesome. The government can seize and/or freeze the assets on the mere assertion that there is probable cause to believe that the assets were involved in domestic terrorism. The assets are seized before a person is given a hearing, and often without notice. In order to permanently forfeit the assets, the government must go before a court, but at a civil hearing, the time between seizure and forfeiture can sometimes be months;
