Even Armenians are targets of racial bigotry in America today

Two Armenian teens flying a flag on their car in Los Angeles were shot at during the anniversary commemoration of the Armenian Holocaust on Tuesday:
Two Armenian-American teenagers were allegedly shot at on Tuesday evening — the 103-year anniversary of the Armenian genocide — while driving on the 14 Freeway in Santa Clarita in what the driver claims was a hate crime.

Harry Nalbandyan, 19, said he and his 17-year-old sister Christina were on their way home from their uncle’s birthday party around 11:30 p.m. when the driver of a silver Honda CRV came up behind their car, flashed its headlights, rolled down his window and started shooting at them.

According to the local CBS affiliate in Los Angeles, their truck was hit at least eight times by 45-caliber rounds that were lodged in the car’s seat and head rest.

“We’re lucky we’re live,” Harry told CBS. “He kept shooting. This guy just wanted to finish it off; get one of us killed.”

He said he believes they were targeted because of a large Armenian flag he had draped on the back of his truck to mark the 103-year anniversary of the Armenian genocide, when 1.5 million Armenians were killed by Ottoman Turks in 1915.
This is horrific, and it proves Armenians are as much a target as Jews are. It's also entirely possible it was an Islamofascist who attacked the pair. Let's hope they're okay after this terrible experience.
