3 Million People With Nowhere to Go

President Bashar al-Assad’s forces are about to attack Idlib, the last rebel-held province in Syria. Fear of mass slaughter is increasing.

Syria taught me that knowledge does not lead to accountability. The families who were buried under the rubble will not get justice. Those who had to start over in foreign lands and were vilified for having the temerity to want to raise their children in safety won’t either. Neither will those who drowned on the way to European shores, nor will those who were besieged and starved to within an inch of their life get justice.
