“Since the beginning of the peaceful demonstrations in Syria on March 15 this year, 1350 civilians have been killed. An estimated 15000 civilians have been detained, tortured or have disappeared and more than 12000 refugees have fled the country,” Christina Abraham, Civil Rights director at CAIR-Chicago, told the media in Johannesburg today.
The Overdrive invited Christina Abraham and Yaser Tabbara to help give perspective on the President’s speech from the point of view of people who are invested in the rights of the Middle Eastern people and the policy positions of the U.S.
“It [Bin Ladens’ death] brings closure for the families of 9/11, and all Americans, and hopefully brings closure on an era,” said Rehab. “I hope now we can usher in a new era that focuses more on the Arab Spring which is the reality now, and less on the so-called War on Terror.”
