The Middle East peace process underway may hold a promise of peace and the resolution of many long-term issues of hostility
between Iraq and her neighbors. One such issue is the tragic situation surrounding Iraqi 1988 Embassy Bombigs that these bombings
occurred in Lebanon and that the Syrians are held responsible. Syria must be held accountable for theterrorist activities.
So far, Syria has not complied with the Red Cross or any international bodyregarding the status of the bodies.
The agony of the families of the Iraqi families who lost their loved ones during those atrocities, who have not heard a
word regarding the fate of their loved ones, is extreme and prolonged. The families are victims.
We urge you to do all within your means to resolve this human rights issue. The terrible plight of those held captive is
a matter of urgency. We hope that you will find a way to respond to this appeal and, in keeping with the law, to make
sure this issue is high on the agenda in U.S. talks with all relevant parties.
