XIII World Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates, Warsaw, Poland Oct 2l-23, 2013

Dear Friends,

In May, 2013 I led a 16-person peace delegation to Syria at the invitation of Mussalaha National Movement.

What we witnessed inside Syria was not being fairly depicted in the international media, which was not reporting gross violations of international and humanitarian international laws by foreign countries and fighters that are waging a proxy war for the purpose of regime change and geo-strategic benefits. We would remind those foreign governments that are training and funding foreign fighters that it is illegal under the United Nations Charter to arm forces to topple elected governments.   During our visit we witnessed a civilian population that was, and still is, suffering the invasion of thousands of foreign fighters from many countries, who are fuelling insecurity, death, chaos, and destruction everywhere.
