From Damascus to Paris

The United States government has plausibly accused Syrian “diplomats” of surveilling, stalking, and intimidating dissidents on American soil. The French government now says Syria’s “diplomats” are doing the same thing in Paris.

Allowing agents from a pariah regime to remain in the capitals of the Western democracies despite the fact that they’re behaving abroad as they do at home is no longer useful or even decent. Banish them.
