“Peace in Syria is long overdue. The conflict is in its fifth year and going unabated. Terrorism is on the rise, extremists are recruited all over the world, including in the U.S. Some are from here, our town of Boston. It is high time the administration acknowledges that its Syria policy has to change.
The Syrian American Forum (SAF), a national non-for-profit organization seeking peace in Syria, urges the Obama administration to exercise all in its power to help bring an end to this bloody conflict. The armed elements committing hideous crimes against civilians and minorities are mostly groups listed by the administration as “terrorist organizations”, such as ISIS, AlNusra, and others.
While the administration launched a direct war against ISIS, it should be noted here that this war against the so-called ISIS will not succeed unless coordinated with the countries in the region that are the real victims of its atrocities. The recent nuclear agreement with Iran should open the door for future cooperation in this battle.
The so-called ISIS did not emerge from a mirage. It is a result of the policies of the U.S. and its allies, such as Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar. Whether by turning a blind eye to its growth, or through arming, financing and enabling by our allies, the administration bears some direct responsibility for some of what is going on in Syria.
We call on you to join us Saturday July 25, 2015 at 1pm in Copley Square to help send a message to Washington that the Syrian people deserve peace.“
