  • When the statue of the Abu Alaa Al Maarrie and that of “assad allat” was destroyed and turned into a pile of stones …. When ‪#‎Bursa‬ and ‪#‎Palmyra‬ were lost, they were not a loss to ‪#‎Syrians‬ only but the whole world lost them.. The light of civilization that lived in ‪#‎Syria‬ was a real threat to those hateful groups that insist on eliminating the enlightenment and civilization thousands of years old ..
I don’t like to stuff my articles with boring information, but I’ll just give you a hint about the catastrophe that befell the Antiquities and Museums starting with the Umayyad mosque in ‪#‎Aleppo‬ , to at Em Al Zenar church , the Old and New city in ‪#‎Homs‬ and I don’t have the right words to describe Busra and its great amphitheater , ‪#‎Ebla‬ in ‪#‎Idleb‬ and the list is too long to continue.... 90% of the militant factions that are fighting in Syria are radical religious groups .. these same groups are participating in Geneva and other conferences demanding of the right to rule in Syria.. how would they be merciful to people if they are not being merciful to stones …
Of course everything becomes clear and understandable when we remember that turkey had the best share in looting the Syrians ..a lot of Syrian Antiquities and Museums were stolen and exported to turkey to be sold there and it has became impossible to track them .. and the destruction in some of the Syrian areas is way much worse that ‪#‎Dresden‬ which was totally destroyed in ‪#‎WWII‬..
No one ever imagined that Khaled Al Asa’ad the General Director of Antiquities and Museums in Palmyra for whom Italy closed its museums and mourned , was such a threat to ‪#‎ISIS‬ and those supporting it ..
I wonder what would those monsters do if they reached old city of ‪#‎Damascus‬?
I wonder what would those monsters do if they reached Ugarite or Amrite?
Syria was moving with steady steps towards secularism.. toward a future were everyone has the right to think and believe differently .. towards a place we all share in our homeland in regardless of our believes… Alas that there will be a time when we wake up too late and our children ask us about what was once a country and the only answer we have is “ once upon a time…”

There is a great importance to the presence of the international media in the Syria, to witness what is "really" happening on the ground!
