CDS Thanks President Trump for Strikes Against Assad Regime


CDS Thanks President Trump for Strikes Against Assad Regime in Response to Chemical Weapons Attack on Civilians
Washington, DC - The Coalition for a Democratic Syria (CDS) -- a multi-ethnic, multi-sectarian coalition of six Syrian American advocacy organizations representing the Syrian American community including Syrian Christians for Peace, Syrian Emergency Task Force, Syrian American Council, United for a Free Syria, American Syriac Union, and the Association of a Free Syrians -- expresses its sincere gratitude for President Donald Trump's decisive strikes against the Assad regime in response to its massacre of civilians with chemical weapons.
In the words of President Trump, "Assad choked out the helpless with slow and painful death with so many, even babies, no child of God should ever have to deal with something like this."
We welcome the comments of President Trump and Sec. of State Tillerson calling for the international community to come together to stop the killing in Syria and remove the Assad regime.
"I want to thank you for what you've done for the American people you make us proud to be your fellow Americans for your forceful moral leadership," said Mouaz Moustafa, SETF Executive Director and Policy Advisor for CDS.

In ending this era of global inaction, this decisive move has given the Syrian people a rare gift—hope.

The Coalition for a Democratic Syria is a group of Syrian-American non-profit organizations working together to bring about a swift end to the conflict and support the establishment of peace, freedom, and democracy in Syria. CDS is a multi-ethnic, multi-confessional, non-partisan organization. CDS includes: Syrian Emergency Task Force, United for Free Syria, Syrian American Council, Syrian Christians for Peace, the Association of Free Syrians, and the American Syriac Union.
