A Christian aid group, Frontier Alliance International (FAI), was preparing to host an event at the Trump Hotel in Washington, D.C., to pray for the Kurds in Syria when the hotel suddenly canceled it. The reasons for the cancellation by the hotel are currently unknown. Recently, President Trump had pulled the U.S. military out of northern Syria, allowing Turkey to invade the area targeting Kurdish forces. The fighting has prompted a flood of Kurds in Syria to leave — causing a political headache for the president, who has been accused by Republicans and Democrats alike of abandoning U.S. allies in the region.Two of the group’s leaders, Joel Richardson and Dalton Thomas, for FAI’s event, “A Night Of Prayer for the Kurds,” posted a video explaining their decision to host the event at the Trump Hotel. In addition to explaining the event’s purpose of support for the Kurdish people, they expressed their concern over the Trump Administration’s recent decision to pull the American military out of Syria. They shared that their event was a “protest in meekness” while also saying that they respect the office and rank of the President. Thomas also went on to include that they wanted their event to be productive and not critical, saying that it’s easy to be a critic and very difficult to be productive. Thomas also stated this was part of a bigger picture to answer the question–how to help Kurdish suffering that has gone on for decades.
