A Washington-based foundation has canceled a meeting with Syria's top Islamic cleric, a close ally of embattled President Bashar Assad who has vowed to unleash suicide bombers against the U.S. and Europe if the West attacks his country.
Philip Wilcox, president of the Foundation for Middle East Peace, told The Washington Times on Monday afternoon that the decision to cancel the event was taken "just now."
"We were not aware of his speech, which was at odds with the theme of the event," said Mr. Wilcox, whose group is described on its website as being devoted to fostering peace between Israel and the Palestinians.
