Dear, Mr. Khoja and SNC.

Your Propaganda towards Russia and the Claims that it has targeted more innocent civilians then the so called western airstrikes in Syria is rather is almost comical in nature.

Since the western airstrikes in Syria had begin two years ago just what had the Western forces being targeting? dud targets? deserted Vehicles? and abandoned buildings with no fighters fleeing the area? please do tell the Western public. On just how the effective the western coalition airstrikes had being in Syria for the two years now… Surely now if the west did care so much about Syria’s historical past.

The destruction of palmyra would have being easily prevented. America has failed to provide any evidence that Russia has targeted civilians.

And about the Free Syrian Army just who are the moderates again? if the FSA share the same values as ISIS and the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood that does not make you a moderate.

Russia cares about Syria’s state and its people then the west who are responsible for the current chaos in the middle east.

Dear, Mr. Khoja:

Very soon Russia, Iran, the Syrian Arab Army, Hizballah, China and Belarus (latest addition to the CSTO coalition in Syria) will see to it that your terrorist friends in the FSA, al-Qaeda and ISIS will beg for mercy and pray for death rather than face the consequences of their crimes against humanity.

You and your gang of treasonous henchmen have destroyed Syria and caused the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Syrians in the service of NATO and Israel. God willing, your violent demise will be next, you filthy rodent.

Dear Ambassador Ghadian and Ambassador Jalabi:

Saw your letter in NYT today, and would like to invite one of you as speaker at Columbia University conference, 7 October. Could not find your e-mail on your web site. Security?

See below for info, and please get back to me soonest — we are organizing this as a “flash” event!

Refugees and Migrants on the Move: the Moment of Truth for the EU and the Middle East?

Conference at Columbia University’s School of Public and International Affairs

Wednesday, 7 October 2015, 6:30 to 9:30

Panel I – 6:30 to 7:45
Refugees and migrants are pouring into Europe with ever increasing numbers, and the fault lines in the EU’s architecture are coming to the fore. Moral values collide with practical concerns, while public opinion fluctuates between compassion and fierce hostility. Will these centrifugal forces tear the EU apart and undo the Schengen agreement? Will the immigration debate reopen the discussion whether the concept of “Europe” is merely an artificial post-WWII construct forced down the voters’ throat? How are nationalism and human rights mediated in the current crisis?
Invite: EU representative, German PR?, Hungarian PR?, prominent academic – SIPA to moderate

Panel II – 8:00 to 9:15
As Europe dithers and the rest of the world keeps its distance, three countries carry the burden of hosting some four million refugees: Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey. Is that sustainable? Can rich countries refuse to share their burden, and leave UNHCR with only one third of the resources it seeks, without aggravating the crisis? How do these host countries cope, and how are their internal politics affected? How do regional proxy wars feed on the humanitarian catastrophe? What are the proposals to resolve this crisis which is destroying families, wasting human capital, and setting the Middle East back for a generation or more?
Invite: Major Syria and host country PRs, UNHCR rep, HRW speaker – SIPA to moderate
Reception – 9:15 to 9:45

Best regards,

Dirk Salomons
Director, Humanitarian Affairs Track, SIPA, Columbia University, DS 2002@columbia.edu

Deir Ezzor city is witnessing an aggressive siege done by both of the Syrian regime and ISIS against the families of Deir Ezzor, after what Deir Ezzor city has suffered during four years of the Syrian revolution from destruction which has reached all the cities and villages of Deir Ezzor and after there was a martyr, a detainee, an injured or a refugee in every family of Deir Ezzor city.
Due to the neglection of the situation by every political figures of the Syrian revolution, and especially the one called “Ryad Al-Hassan” representative of the local councils in Deir Ezzor city since 2012 and until now. In “the National coalition of the revolution forces and the opposition” ever since he was chosen for the first time by a narrow circle to represent in the National council.

His contribution in supporting battalions and organizations to gain allegances without turning back to any revolutionary leaderships in Deir Ezzor city at that time as well as supporting branch local councils directly without the knowledge of the Deir Ezzor province’s local council, and at the end continuing to neglect Deir Ezzor despite the current besiege and everything that’s happened to it from destruction, displacement and detainment, and continuing to support military branches and organizations that have joined and still are among ISIS ranks, and they have been a major contributor in the besiege of the city and the maniac acts in Deir Ezzor suburbs.

We are the signers of Deir Ezzor province and the members of former local councils and executive offices and Civil Society parties, revolutionary parties and democratic gatherings, media institutions and educational gatherings, we ask the Syrian revolution institutions, above which is “the Coalition” to lay “Ryad Al-Hasan” off as a representative of Deir Ezzor city’s local councils, Secretary of the political institute and the ambassador of the Coalition in Libia, all because of:

1- Neglecting Deir Ezzor city, which is currently under the control of both, “ISIS” and the heart of international terrorism, “Bashar Al-Assad’s” regime, this neglection which has become obvious in the last period despite “Ryad’s” claims that he’d represented Deir Ezzor city and its councils.

2- The previously mentioned “Ryad Al-Hassan”‘s support to military gathering which has contributed as of late with Deir Ezzor city’s besieging and joined ISIS ranks which forms a clear violation of the values and principles of freedom and equality, which we tried to uphold ever since March 2011 and his clear contribution in strengthening the extremist parties inside the city.

3- His obsecure arrival (Without a local selection by Deir Ezzor city families) to the positions of the National Coalition and his contribution in conflict uprising between the revolution parties inside Deir Ezzor city by fueling parties and gatherings instead of others.

4- Ryad Al-Hassan couldn’t accomplish anything on the province’s level during the long period of representing its local councils at the time when more than 350 thousand people of Deir Ezzor city is still under the aggressive besiege implied by ISIS and Al-Assad, while Ryad hasn’t done any speech or report asking the International Community to intervene.

We demand his dismissal from the National Coalition of revolutionary forces and opposition’s offices and all the political, relief and revolutionary service institutions, and hold him accountable and bring him forth to the court for what he’d done against all he’s supposed to be a guardian to..

Theodore John Levin’s demand that the Syrian democratic resistance commit now to a specific future political line regarding Israel is very unfair. The Syrian people are now facing a brutal, despotic regime of historic proportions. Freeing their country from that tyranny is priority number one. When that day arrives, as it will inevitably, surely the new leadership of Syria will be open to the ideas of those who have worked and supported it in the dark days of its struggle against the dictatorship. As a Jew committed to justice for all the people of the Middle East, I cannot honestly ask for more. Solidarity speaks for itself.

I would be very interested to know-if-or when Assad is eventually overthrown-or deposed-would the SNC-be willing to eventually recognize the Jewish state of Israel-as both Egypt, Jordan & some Arab Gulf states have done-assuming if & when a full Israeli-Palestinian peace settlement-is eventually arrived at & agreed on-assuming if both Israel & the Palestinians-are willing to learn from the overall success of the Northern Ireland peace process-as a whole-as I hear that the SNC aim to turn Syria into-a full-scale democracy-& which is also similar to the aims of the Libyan transnational council. Please do let me know what the SNC,s policy
is , regarding future Syrian recognition of Israel, as such.
