(CNN)It’s not easy to defuse a crisis complicated by tens of thousands of foreign fighters, many affiliated with ISIS, over 100,000 Iranian-sponsored militiamen, and the armies and intelligence agencies of myriad states. Nor can the horrific humanitarian crises plaguing many Syrian refugee and internally displaced persons camps, where aid gets siphoned off and manipulated by the Assad regime, be easily managed. One trembles to hear every few days of children freezing to death and parents burning themselves or killing their children out of humiliation, poverty, and hunger.
Score-settling between Iran and Israel, Turkey and the Gulf, and the US and Russia stands to come at an inestimable cost for Syrian civilians.

On January 9, the Brookings Doha Center hosted a policy discussion where speakers Moaz Al-Khatib, Daniel Byman, and Louay Safi explored the current status of the complex Syrian conflict, the options for the new Trump administration, and the roles being played by an ever expanding list of actors.
Yesterday, Mr. Mouaz al-Khatib, the President of Our Syria Movement and one of the Syrian opposition’s most influential leaders, sent a letter to Russian President Vladimir Putin regarding Russia’s intervention in Syria and the diplomatic talks in Vienna. Khatib demanded an end to Russian bombardments of civilians and delineated the terms of a political solution that would be acceptable to the Syrian people. Khatib further expressed his willingness to work with any parties to the conflict interested in a solution along these lines, including members of the Assad regime. The full text of his letter is below.

(Washington D.C.) – “The Syrian regime in its current form will continue to be a source of instability and conflict for the Syrian people,” says Sheikh Mouaz Al-Khatib, the founding president of the Syrian National Coalition, “and the region will see no stability while it remains in power.”
Khatib, a former Imam at the Umayyad Mosque in Damascus, shared his insights on the dynamics of Syria’s four-year-old conflict at an event co-hosted by The Middle East Institute (MEI) and the Center for the Study of Islam and Democracy on March 19, 2015. In a public presentation followed by a conversation with MEI Senior Fellow Robert Ford, Khatib set out his vision for the country’s path to political reconciliation. Continue reading →
In the name of God, the Merciful,
To the patient and proud people of Syria,
Our people have endured the tragedy of the era for four painful years now. The yearning to monopolize power caused grievances and atrocities that claimed the lives of hundreds of thousands of Syrians, including many women and children. It filled prisons with many more hundreds of thousands, and similar numbers suffering from injuries and disabilities. Continue reading →
