A Christian Syrian PM, head of Parliament and UN representative: Late Fares Khouri فـــارس الــخــوري

Khouri sat in the seat of the French mandated power representative at the UN in 1947 who got furious. Khouri replied: I sat on your seat for barely 5 minutes and you are frustrated. How do you think we feel of your 25 years occupation of Syria?”

As General Gouro entered Damascus with his army, he proclaimed that the French are there to protect the Christians. Khouri entered the Omayyad Mosque and declared: If the French says they are here to protect us, I now declare There is No God but Allah”

شخصية سورية ترفع لها القبعة..

الأستاذ الجامعي الذي قبّل يدَ تلميذه المُلَوّثة بالفحم

هو رئيس مجلس الأمن الدولي عام1947 وأول ممثل دائم لسوريا في الأمم المتحدة ، كان وزير اً للمالية والداخلية والمعارف وترأس المجلس النيابي ومجلس الوزراء ،وهو المدافع الشرس في الأمم المتحدة عن إستقلال سوريا عن فرنسا وحادثة جلوسه الشهيرة مكان المندوب الفرنسي الذي استشاط غيظا منه حتى رد عليه ذالك الرد التاريخي : إنك لم تتحمل ان اجلس على طاولتك لنصف ساعة كيف تقبل ان تجلس جيوشك في بلدنا مايزيد عن خمس وعشرون عاماً … ونال اثرها على قرار استقلال سوريا وخروج الانتداب الفرنسي

و يوم أبلغه الجنرال غورو أن فرنسا جاءت إلى سورية لحماية مسيحيي الشرق، فما كان منه إلا أن قصد الجامع الأموي في يوم جمعة وصعد إلى منبره, وقال:

“إذا كانت فرنسا تدعي أنها احتلت سورية لحمايتنا نحن المسيحيين من المسلمين، فأنا كمسيحي من هذا المنبر أشهد أن لا إله إلا الله”

فأقبل عليه مصلو الجامع الأموي وحملوه على الأكتاف وخرجوا به إلى أحياء دمشق القديمة في مشهد وطني تذكرته دمشق طويلا وخرج أهالي دمشق المسيحيين يومها في مظاهرات حاشدة ملأت دمشق وهم يهتفون لا إله إلا الله ….

لم يكونوا مسلمين ولا مسيحيين ولكن كل أبناء الوطن, ان موقف فارس الخوري الرافض للاحتلال الفرنسي واتخاذ حماية اقلية او طائفه ذريعة للتدخلات الخارجية

وهو مؤسس معهد الحقوق العربي ،وساهم في تأسيس المجمع العلمي العربي ،ولكن الأغرب في مسيرته أنه أستلم مهمة وزير الأوقاف الإسلامية ،حيث دافع عنه النائب عبد الحميد الطبّاع آنذاك قائلاً :

“إننا نؤمن بك على أوقافنا ،أكثر مما نؤمن أنفسنا “

وفي إحدى محاضراته التي كان يلقيها في جامعة دمشق ،دخل طالبٌ متأخراً عن المحاضرة ،فسأله عن سبب تأخره ، ولكن الطالب ارتبك وتقدّم من المنصّة ليشرح للأستاذ بأن سبب تأخره ،هو أنه يشتغل فحّاما في الليل ليحضر المحاضرات في النهار ..عندها أمسك الأستاذ بيد الطالب وقبلها أمام الطلبة !

إنه الرمز السوري المضيئ ، إنه انموذج للانسان المسؤول والساعي الى خدمة المجتمع الانساني بمعزل عن دينه :

انه فـــارس الــخــوري

Notes and tidbits posted on FB and Twitter. Part 147

Note: I take notes of books I read and comment on events and edit sentences that fit my style. I pay attention to researched documentaries and serious links I receive. The page is long and growing like crazy, and the sections I post contains a month-old events that are worth refreshing your memory.

Trump akhad fesse’ (behind whipped). 128 countries slapped his ass pretty well. 9 of USA “colonies” voted against the UN resolution, Pretty lame alliances

Again, why US administration didn’t challenge Israel to conduct a referendum on Jerusalem before the pronouncement in the face of world community position? Simple: It is the US Evangelical Zionists who wanted it. (Something to do with Second Coming?)

Our existential enemies are the Evangelical Zionists who are spreading Jewish myths, every which way and manners

Most of the days (1971-75) I ended up attending conferences, political party meetings, joining regular demonstrations and marches by university students, sit-ins, hunger strikes on the street in front of the education ministry (I tried once for half a day), fleeing police tanks and water hoses, or just walking all around Beirut circulating where the “movable fairs” crossed my path, gathering of people chanting slogans against the sectarian and mercantile political system, the defeatist government, not responding to the frequent bombardment of Israel in south Lebanon...

The citizens (mostly Moslem Chiaa) in the south (1970-75), after each Israeli incursion in Lebanon, flocked to the suburbs of Beirut, mainly in Dahieh, and labelled the “Red belt of poverty

Let’s be focused: Until the Evangelical Zionists in US Senate and Congress rescind the 1995 law on Jerusalem, there should be No let-off of the various Intifadas in Palestine and everywhere else. Every week, on successive Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.

38 countries abstained of voting on a UN resolution that didn’t even mention an independent Palestinian State? Shi mouzri. ba3d fi shoghol kteer

La survie de la region (Palestine, Lebanon and Jordan) depend des fleuves et des sources d’eau: mont Hermon (Jabal el Cheikh)

Imagine un corps, mirroir d’une identite’ honnie. Ma grand-mere se souvient de tous les humiliations depuis 1936 en Palestine. Elle a vu ses parents changer de domicile plusieurs fois, avec des bagages bien plus restreint au fil des evenements.

Trop d’intelligence innee’ qui se develop avec chaque boulversement: De la rationalite’ froide et efficace.

What JESUS Didn’t SAY? And what Mohammad didn’t say either…

Jim Palmer posted this November 22, 2013



15 things Jesus Didn’t Say:

1. “For God was so disgusted with the world and you that he gave his one and only Son.”

2. “I have come to bring you a new religion.”

3. “By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you have correct theology.”

4. “If anyone would come after me, let him disparage all other religions and their followers.”

5. If you love me, you will regularly attend a church of your choice… within reason.”

6. “Blessed are the tithers for they shall be called the children of God.”

7. “Thy kingdom come, thy will be done in Heaven after the earth goes up in flames and destroyed.”

8. “You have heard it said, ‘Love your neighbor,’ which means the people with whom you attend church and relate to in your Christian sub-culture.

9. “In my Father’s house there are a limited number of rooms. But no worries, there is plenty of room in Hell.”

10. “The kingdom of God has come!… Well, not exactly. I mean, not completely. Let’s face it, the really-real kingdom comes after we die. Hang in there. It won’t be long.”

11. “And you will know the truth and the truth will make you superior to all the other simpletons who never learned Greek, Latin, Aramaic or Hebrew.”

12 “You are the light of the world… well… in a sinful-filthy-scum kind of way.”

13. “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you a checklist of things to do and not do in order to remain in God’s favor.”

14. “For God so loved the world… you know like theoretically… as in, God loves the big ‘W’-world. But when it come to you specifically, that are quite a few things that would need to change for God to actually and specifically love… or even like… YOU.”

15. “He appeared to his disciples over a period of 40 days and spoke about how to incorporate his life and teaching as a 501(c)3, and go into all the earth to build mega-churches in his name.”
