Syrian-American Christians are rallying in support of Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad outside the U.S. Capitol, and protesting an American intervention in Syria. A brief dispatch from Dave:

More than 200 Syrian-Americans, most of them from a community in Allentown, PA, marched as close as they could go to the Capitol today to protest any bombing of their mother country.

Quotes from protesters and more context to come shortly.
