See my exchange with Robert Naiman below.
He hasn't responded.
Before I post this on Facebook, does anyone know how he's been on Syria in
general?

Perhaps it's unintended, or perhaps I'm misreading you, but the implication
of your remark, Robert, is to imply that those poor benighted Mohammedans
are too stupid or backward to organize against war.
Maybe if the gringo left weren't such ardent advocates of
Assad/Rouhani/Putin warmaking, and had shown a little solidarity with the
Syrian Revolution, then some of its component parts wouldn't HAVE to beg
Obama for help.
Again, if I've misinterpreted your comment, sorry.

Looks like we could use some peace organizing in the Muslim-American
community...

D.C, 10/8/15) *- Leaders of the nation's leading Syrian-American and Muslim
advocacy organizations today met with top-ranking White House officials to
express concerns over Russia's recent airstrikes in Syria that resulted in
the killings of civilians and destruction of civilian infrastructure.

At the White House meeting, the leadership discussed the ramifications of
the recent bombings and suggested policy recommendations for the protection
of civilians and the resettlement of more refugees.

The meeting was followed by a news conference in front of the* Russian
embassy in Washington, D.C.*, at which the leadership also hand-delivered a
letter addressed to the Russian ambassador urging Russian President Putin
to rethink his military strategy in Syria.

During the news conference, *CAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad*
said: "American inaction is giving the green light to Russia to meddle in
the Middle East. This will only prolong the life of a dictatorship and play
into the hands of ISIS. It will reignite extremes on both sides."

(Washington Post)

*In the letter delivered to the embassy, the Syrian-American and Muslim
leadership stated:*

"The ongoing Russian military intervention in Syria is not in Russia's
short or long-term interest in the Middle East. Russia will be perceived,
and is being perceived, by the majority of Syrians, Arabs and Muslims, as a
foreign military power that is helping a brutal regime to massacre its
people.

"The current approach in Syria will only lead to more refugees, more
terrorism, and more death. . .Russia should use its influence to stop the
massacres committed by the Syrian government and to press for a
representative and pluralistic government in Syria as a core foundation for
any effort to combat terrorism."

In an op-ed published yesterday, Syrian American Medical Society (SAMS)
Board Member Zaher Sahloul and MPAC President Salam Al-Marayati cautioned
that the current conflict could also escalate into a perceived religious
war.
