Sterio Comments on Plain Dealer Editorial Regarding Democracy, Syria, and the Arab Spring

The Cleveland Plain Dealer published C|M|LAW Professor Milena Sterio’s letter to the editor, today, in response to an Opinion Editorial by Tony George, Bloom is Off Arab Spring, published last Friday.  George’s editorial concerned Democracy, Syria, and the Arab Spring.  Sterio challenges George’s assertion that the practice of Islam and the establishment of Democracy are inherently incompatible.  She argues that the United States must continue, through diplomacy,  to encourage democracy in the Middle East and must embrace the duly elected leaders, whomever they may turn out to be,  because that is what democracy means.
