Leaders said on the bravery of Syrian people…

For invaders of Syria and occupiers of its lands:

The founder of Saudi Arabia monarchy, King Abdul Aziz Al Saud said:

“Syria does not need men. Syria’s men are the most steadfast…”

Fidel Castro said:

“The French are fools: They occupied a country with people who never lose patience and never weaken…”

Dictator Saddam Hussein of Iraq: “In every Syrian blood drop is born a Mujahed

Kissinger said: “There will never be found a more courageous, hardworking, and steadfast men outside of Syria…”

Hitler said: “Give me a Syrian soldier with a German weapon and I will let Europe crawl on its fingers…”

The bloody Omayyad governor of Basra, Al Hajaj bin Youssef said:

“Never be tempted to believe that the people in Syria (Ahel Al Sham) are patient or weakly: If they support you they will make you king, and if they revolt against you they end up chopping your head… Be warned of three:

1.”Stay clear from the Syrian women: they’ll eat you as a lioness devours its victims

2. Never try to invade their land: The rocks of its mountains will fight you

3. Don’t obstruct their religion, otherwise they’ll burn your worldly wealth

The French philosopher Ernest Renan said: “I have two nations. Syria is my motherland”

Note 1: Since antiquity, almost all war-type empires invaded Syria. Due to its topography, it is easy to invade inland Syria via the plains, but the mountainous regions have been spared, where minority sects have taken refuge from frequent persecutions. It is easy to invade Syria, but in order to retain it, all invaders were forced to give the people self-autonomy.

Note 2: The Crusaders never attempted to occupy any city in inland Syria: They were satisfied with the coastal cities.

Note 3: The Arab armies that vanquished Byzantium and the Persian Sassanian empires were mostly composed of Syrian soldiers. During the Omayyad dynasty, with Damascus as Capital, the Arabic empire expanded all the way to north Africa.

Note 4: It is when the Capital was moved to Baghdad during the Abbasid dynasty that the Arabic empire started its decline by relying on other nations soldiers. It was no longer an Arabic empire, but a Moslem empire. The saying that “Syria is the heart of the Arab world” should be taken very literally.

Note 5: It is Syria educated and urban people who started the cultural trend in the Arabic empire and developed the Arabic language to become the language of sciences, math and medicine.

Note 6: It is the Syrian support for the Caliphs that defeated the frequent minority revolts against the central power, regardless of the location of the capital of the Arabic empire

Note 7: Israel knows that it’s main nemesis is the Syrian people. As long as the Syrians regard Israel as a foreign implanted State, Israel has no chance to survive.

Note 8: The Arabic text

Very happy I am; very lucky, indeed!  

Note:  This article is extracted from the epilogue of “Thus Spoken the Killer” by Nasri Sayegh; the epilogue is entitled “Fuck it”

 

Very happy the individual who emerges from a civil war with a simple insult on barricades; who received just a slap, a box, or a vengeful wait on barricades.

 

Very happy who escaped a civil war and was robbed a bundle of bread or his car trunk was vandalized.

 

Very happy whose wife’s body was just checked by fretful fingers, who was threatened to be beaten but was spared a beating, or by death or by kidnapping but these threats never materialized.

 

Very happy who was warned to vacate his house and obeyed gladly.  Very happy who was just fired from a job on confessional basis but survived a civil war.

 

Terribly lucky that you were kidnapped or made prisoner and returned safe and sound to your family.

 

Terribly lucky that you were estimated of any value for prisoner exchange, or because you were utterly worthless to waste a bullet in your head.

 

Terribly lucky that a bomb went off or a car explosion spared you of shrapnel.

Awfully lucky that you kept your property intact by bribing the appropriate leader.

Awfully lucky that only one of the members of your family was injured.

 

How lucky you were that a family lived in your vacated property and kept it decently maintained.

 

How lucky that you were out with your family when a missile hit your home.

 

How lucky that you found someone to whisk you out of a dangerous zone or you were a foreign national and were shipped out safely with your compatriots in identity paper.

 

You should have been grateful that you were allowed to be handed the body of a relative and that you managed to give him a proper burial.

 

How courageous you were when you demanded to know the name of the killer.

 

You must have been one of the rare courageous men to have just asked that you personal rights for freedom be respected, that embezzlements by militias are not part of human rights.

 

Thank your God that you escaped alive with an intact passport and a current visa, or valuable document to your properties, of cherished photos and souvenirs of those who died to safeguard “freedom, honor, and self autonomy”.

 

You have to be thankful a thousand times that you survived to re-experience another civil was as a meek sheep.

 

(Fuck it all; there are no grounds to be happy or thankful to have survived a civil war where no party even won the war!  With no winner there is no renewal)
