Oak Lawn doctor a voice for victims in Syria
"People forget that this all began in 2013 when the Syrian people launched a revolution to oust Assad on social media. The vast majority of the people there have the same values as the people here in America. They want the same things. They want to operate businesses, they want to feel safe in their homes, they want freedom.
What's going on there amounts to a genocide. It's important that people who can do something do what they can to stop it.
It's psychological warfare of a sort. After one such attack, which killed three people, 50 percent of the people who lived in the area moved. That's the goal.
We all need to help them. All of the people in the world. Humanitarian aid is no longer enough. That's the message we need people to hear."
