“This picture was taken during Representative Wexler’s (pro) Israel, anti-Iran speech, I stood up & waived a peace sign & yelled we want peace now. Received lots of love from fellow Democrats” -My friend and community member, Basim Elkarra
In 2009, Syrian government arrested 17 year old Tal Al-Molouhy for posting “anti-government” sentiments on her blog. Later she was charged for spying for the USA for a post where she asks US President Barack Obama to do more in support of the Palestinean cause.
Today, now 19 years old, Al-Molouhy was taken to court in blindfolded and in chains to receive a 5 year sentence.
This is NOT acceptable!! Please sign this online petition to help voice your solidarity with Al-Molouhy and demand her release!
More information on Al-Molouhy’s case will be posted here as well as via Twitter.
