To the Editor:
   If it is Mr. Friedman's intent to extol the multiculturalism of Syria, why does he offer us the example of Antakya? Antakya is in Turkey.  We all know that--despite the expulsion of the Greeks and persecutions of Armenians and Kurds--Turkey is a multiethnic nation. But what is this supposed to teach us about Syria? That the modern national borders are arbitrary? Has Thomas L. Friedman achieved such august stature as a pundit that no editor dares tell him that he's making no sense?
