"When asked about the resurgent interest in the region after ISIS’ consolidation, Moustafa was ambivalent. There was bitterness at having been ignored about the growing islamist threat and the recognition that routing al-Qaeda from Syria is now more difficult than it would have been in 2012, as well as appreciation that Syria continues to be in Americans’ minds.
Moustafa dubbed the war, “Obama’s Rwanda,” underlining the failure of the Obama administration to act while Kalin made a much stronger comparison. Kalin says that any doubts she had about the necessity of this film were taken away when a Syrian woman asked her, “Have they forgotten us? Are we human?”, words she says echo that of her grandfather who had been imprisoned in Auschwitz."
