The Syrian American Council (SAC) urges the Arab League to stop providing the Syrian regime more time to continue its crimes against the Syrian people.

The Syrian American Council (SAC) urges the Arab League to stop providing the Syrian regime more time to continue its crimes against the Syrian people. The Syrian regime continues killing peaceful demonstrators and civilians instead of complying with the Arab League demands.

The Arab League monitors appear incapable of stopping the Syrian regime’s brutal crackdown or reporting accurate events from Syria. The lack of action by the Arab League has created the feeling that it is a partner of the Syrian regime in its crimes against the Syrian people.

The monitors have failed to stop the killing in Syria. The regime hasn’t released the thousands of protesters incarcerated as it had agreed; it hasn’t withdrawn its army from the cities and continues to prevent foreign journalists to enter the country.

“We do not believe that the Arab League observers are capable of putting an end to the regime’s violent crackdown against peaceful demonstrators. The events during the past two weeks and history have shown that criminals and brutal dictators will not stop their crimes unless a credible power intervenes. The Arab League should have the courage to admit its failure in this mission instead of continuing to watch Assad’s slaughtering of the Syrian people,” said SAC President Talal Sunbulli.

SAC urges the Arab League to refer the Syria file to the UN Security Council to implement measures, including the establishment of safety zones and humanitarian corridors, to stop the Syrian regime’s crimes and to protect civilians demanding freedom, democracy and dignity.

The Syrian American Council (SAC) was founded in 2005 to mobilize Syrian Americans to strengthen civil society in Syria, to promote friendly relations between the Syrian and American peoples, to engage civic and governmental organizations to advance civil liberties, human dignity and democracy in Syria. The organization has represented Syrian Americans to the U.S. State Department, Congress, and in international meetings and councils.
