Montebello Councilman Jack Hadjinian, in a Facebook post, has resigned his board of director position on the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Youth Foundation because of what he called LA County Sheriff Alex Villanueva’s “reckless behavior.”

Hadjinian stated, “I can no longer support such a reckless leader as Sheriff Villanueva.”

“He continues to challenge the [Los Angeles County] Board of Supervisors and now has planned an event with a terrorist group known as the Azerbaijani Community.”

Hadjinian continued, “The Azeris are spreading anti-Armenian propaganda and Sheriff Villanueva is giving them a platform to further extend their lies across the county of Los Angeles. I will never compromise my principles just to carry a badge or an ID card.”

Hadjinian cited several recent examples of aggression by the Azerbaijanis against the Armenian-American community, including the July 24 vandalism at the Krouzian-Zekarian Vasbouragan Armenian School in San Francisco, where the building was spray painted with crude pro-Azerbaijani graffiti.

The incident is still under investigation and no proof has been brought forward proving it was Azerbaijanis.

Hadjinian failed to mention the incident where thousands of Armenian nationalists  just last month stormed the Consulate General of Azerbaijan in Los Angeles and attacked Azerbaijanis who were peacefully protesting Armenia’s recent provocation, which led to border clashes with Azerbaijan.

On their way to the consulate, a furious crowd of Armenians attacked  a handful of peaceful Azerbaijanis who gathered in front of the consulate. Seven Azerbaijanis were injured in the attack and four of them were hospitalized, while a Los Angeles police officer suffered a head injury and cars were vandalized.
