Dear Lebanese Patriot
We ask you all to let Mr. Darryll Issa know how you understand his endeavors to support the Stalinist Syrian regime that has been oppressing the Lebanese people for the last 30 years. Let him know what he should do as a Lebanese descent to support his home land Lebanon, the occupied country. Let him also know how you perceive his odd opposition to the Lebanese Sovereignty restoration Act. We ask you to remind Mr. Issa of your expectations from him in his capacity as a USA legislature of Lebanese descent.
Read Mr. Issa's below invitation and let him know your stance. The question remains: what is the actual agenda of Mr. Issa and why he is not joining the USA campaign against the Syrian Stalinist Baathist regime.
We ask you to call Mr. Issa's office and to send him emails stating clearly your opinion in regards to his pro-Syrian actions.

I would like to encourage you or the legislative assistant responsible for foreign relations to attend. The event will be sponsored by the National US-Arab Chamber of Commerce.In wake of the U.S. attack on Iraq and the recent unveiling of the "Roadmap to Peace" between Israel and the Palestinians, it is important that the United States and Congress are well informed about our bilateral relationship with Syria. Recent events in the Middle East have raised new tensions, challenges, and opportunities across the region, including in Syria. Questions remain unanswered as to how Washington. should deal with Damascus. I invite you to engage in this discussion.
