Haytham Al-Manna`

This courageous fighter for human rights is a model opposition figure, by my standards.  This courageous Syrian dissident is a model dissident, by my standards.  He has been largely ignored by the New York Times because he is fiercely opposed to Israel and foreign intervention in Syria.  He has been ignored although his brother has been killed by Syrian troops.  Today, the New York Times discovered him but only because he criticized the lousy head of the Arab monitoring team.
