Each letter is individually addressed and sent to each official. 
  
I am signing this petition to show my support for the people of Kobane, a Kurdish city on the border between Turkey and Syria, who are at this moment in danger of being overrun by the terrorist organization calling themselves “The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant,” or ISIL. Already, nearly 200,000 residents of Kobane have been displaced, escaping the ISIL heavy bombardment. As your constituent, I am urging you to take immediate, decisive action to prevent the fall of the city, an event that will be catastrophic not only for the innocent civilians of Kobane and the surrounding villages, but for the long-term peace and stability of the Middle East. 

As we have seen throughout Iraq and Syria, ISIL can only be described as savages. They celebrate the acts of genocide and revel in their atrocities. They fear nothing and target innocent civilians and soldiers alike. They use rape, sexual violence, and slavery as weapons of war. They have already committed genocide of horrible proportions against the Yezidi/ Êzidi Kurds and Christians; as it stands, these communities will take generations to recover.

 UN Secretary General Calls for Action to Protect Civilians in Syria’s Kobane

UNITED NATIONS, October 7 (RIA Novosti) - UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has urged "all those with the means to do so" to protect the residents of the largely Kurdish town of Ayn al-Arab in Syria amid the assault of the Islamic State(IS), the United Nations said in a press release.

"In light of the gross and extensive violations of human rights and international humanitarian law the terrorist group has committed in areas that have fallen under its control in Syria and Iraq during its barbarous campaign, he [Ban] urgently calls on all those with the means to do so to take immediate action to protect the beleaguered civilian population of Ayn al-Arab," Monday's statement read.

Ban is "following with grave concern the ongoing offensive by ISIL [IS] on the northern Syrian town of Ayn al-Arab, which has already resulted in massive displacement of civilians, including into Turkey, and numerous death and injuries," according to the statement.

Islamic State militants have been besieging Ayn al-Arab, also known as Kobani — one of the largest towns in the Kurdish region bordering Turkey — for the last three weeks, making about 300,000 people flee their homes, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

Salih Muslim, the leader of the Syrian Kurdish party PYD, has said that Islamic State (IS) militants were likely to slaughter the residents of Kobani, unless Kurdish fighters receive the weapons, promised to them by the West.
