Lesbian Syrian pro-democracy blogger Amina Abdallah kidnapped?

Please consider writing a letter to the Syrian Embassy to protest the forced disappearance of a young gay prodemocracy blogger in Syria. A sample letter is pasted below.

The Syrian prodemocracy movement has continued nonviolent protests for months despite a horrible campaign of violent reactions from the government. It would be helpful for the movement as a whole if there was a strong response to this kidnapping.

From the Washington Post - "A young Syrian-American teacher who has been blogging about the Middle East uprisings and what it’s like to be gay in Syria has been kidnapped, according to her family...Amina Abdallah was often outspoken in her criticism of the government on her blog “A Gay Girl in Damascus.” http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/blogpost/post/gay-girl-in-damascus-syrian-blogger-allegedly-kidnapped/2011/06/07/AGIhp1KH_blog.html

Here is her blog address http://damascusgaygirl.blogspot.com

Your Excellency [here you can add the name of the ambassador, if it is known to you],

I am writing this letter to express my deepest concern regarding the situation of Amina Abdullah Arraf, a Syrian blogger who has been kidnapped in Damascus on June 6th. Since then, her family was not informed about her whereabouts, the charges against her or her medical condition.

The Syrian regime must immediately and unconditionally release Amina Arraf if, as appears to be the case, she is held solely for the peaceful exercise of her freedom of expression, association and assembly.

I am deeply concerned that Amina Arraf may have been subjected to enforced disappearance. I urge the Syrian authorities to disclose her whereabouts immediately. I call on the Syrian authorities to ensure that Amina Arraf is protected from torture and any other ill-treatment. She must be granted immediate and regular access to her family, lawyers and adequate medical care.

Yours truly, [Your name]
