The purpose of this blog is to illustrate a perspective on the Syrian conflict that media stations like FOX News, Al-Jazeera, and CNN would never dare to show. Many have been deceived into thinking the situation in Syria is as simple as, "Bashar is killing his people." This blog disputes and challenges that claim. A lot of people do not know about the arms the protesters possess, the agenda they're trying to push, the popular support Bashar al-Assad enjoys, or who's really killing and being killed in Syria. This blog is in dedication to everyone who wishes Syria recover and that the bloodshed stop. There is one agenda for this page: to get you to think and hear about the perspective you have not been told.
Syria has a long history of peaceful coexistence among diverse religious and ethnic communities. But with ongoing violence in the country, more and more people fear this pillar of secularist regimes might end up crumbling. RT’s Maria Finoshina traveled to one of the last resorts of peace and stability in the country — the village of Maaloula. It is the only place in the world where Aramaic — the language believed to have been spoken by Christ — is still used as a living language.
“We used to live in peace - Muslims and Christians - of course we’re afraid people from outside the city and this country may come and destroy this unity. Assad became more than just the head of State. He’s a kind of international symbol of this fight for our life.”
