What Do You Know About Syria
So tell me:
It’s been five years of a brutal war and almost every day the international media has carried some Syrian related story, from revolution to refugee and while most of Europe is now cowering under its bed in fear what can you really tell me about Syria and its brutalized population?
For a future blog post I would like to try and paint a picture of Syria before the war but with your help and contribution:
Did you have the chance to visit Syria?
Are you Syrian or have friends and family who have or are living there?
What do you think Syria was like as a country before the conflict?
Do you know where it is?
Please post your thoughts, your questions and experiences, I would like to avoid turning this is into another place of conflict so let’s not get bogged down in the political whys and wherefores, for those wishing for more in depth information on any such issues I am happy to provide links and sources so just drop me a line.
My Damascus Diary blog posts offer some insights and I promise to update and organize this more professionally shortly:
Meet The Syrians is also an ongoing project that will introduce some of my Syrian friends:
Looking forward to your contributions.
