From the Syrian American Forum:
The Syrian American Forum (SAF), the Michigan Emergency Committee Against War and Injustice (MECAWI) and SyrianPerspective.blogspot.com invite you to attend a Rally to express your rejection of the US military intervention in Syria.
The Obama administration’s decision to provide lethal support, after a long time provision of financial and material support, to militants in Syria does not amount to prevention of violence. It only prolongs the killing, destruction and suffering of the Syrian people. Even more to the contrary, such support could very well amount to support of terrorism in Syria and beyond. Those same terrorist groups the Obama administration and its allies have supported in order to overthrow a legitimate U.N. member state are responsible for killing innocent school children and other civilians, car bombings in residential areas, destruction of churches and mosques, and targeting spiritual leaders and religious freedoms:
-Kidnap two prominent Bishops and murdering many others
-Behead popular Imams of a mosque in Aleppo, Baniyas and other towns.
-Murder the top Islamic scholar in Damascus.
We can all remember 9/11. Arming militants in Syria is a long-term threat to our US national security.. By arming “rebels” in Syria we will have stained our hands with the blood of innocents.
Our community and supporters are demanding that the administration:
-Stop every kind of lethal and non-lethal support to armed elements and terrorists in Syria. This could very well amount to supporting the same terrorists we claim to fight elsewhere as in Mali.
-No to military intervention in Syria. Any US role should be directed at supporting dialogue and a political solution by Syrians, for Syrians, based on the Geneva Declaration of June 2012.
-Exert all kinds of pressure on friends and allies to immediately halt their support to these groups while directing them toward support for a political process.
Rally to be held on JUNE 30th, 2013 at 6pm in front of Dearborn City Hall at 13615 Michigan Avenue, Dearborn, Michigan
