I lived in Syria for six years. I have lived in America for the past 12. I have been working for Islamic Relief in Turkey for the past few months to help refugees through the winter months. Please make donations to Syria in terms of nonperishable food, powdered milk, diapers, childrens clothes, shoes and women's personal items. Please don't send weapons. Every one has enough.
The growing problems the Levant, north Africa and the middle east are beyond the understanding of the current administration and its supporters. They do not fully understand the complexities involved. Further meddling just makes things tougher for a positive outcome.
Next year at this time Egypt will be in the same situation. This unfortunately is just the beginning.
