SOURIA YA HABIBATI...YA 3YUNI.......YA RO7 ALBI..WHY THEY DID THIS BARBARIC AND BRUTAL ACTS TO YOU.? I WAS ALMOST CRYING IN A SILENT WAY, JUST MEDITATING OVER THE FUTUR OF MY LAND, MY BELOVED LAND ALTHOUGH I HAVEN'T BEEN THERE FOR MORE THAN 30 YEARS, BUT STILL VIVID IN MY HEART. THIS BARBARIAN ISRAELIS SHOULD LEAVE SYRIA ALONE, GIVE US BACK THE GOLAN HIGHTS, AND STAY AWAY FROM US. WHY THEY DON'T ATTACK KUWAIT FOR EXAMPLE AND TAKE THEIR OIL..??? SAUDI ARABIA, QATAR, EMIRATES, ETC.....WHY ALWAYS LEBANON, SYRIA, PALESTINE, WHY....WHY.....? I BELIEVE THEY MUST PAY DAMAGES FOR THE SYRIAN GOVERNMENT FOR SUCH A BARBARIC ACT, AND CLEAN THE MINES THEY LEFT BEHIND. SHAME ON YOU ISRAELIS. THEY WILL NEVER BE ANY FEELINGS BETWEEN US (SYRIANS AND ISRAELIS) I DIDN'T SAY BETWEEN ARABS, BECAUSE ARABS FROM THE GULF REGION ARE TRAITORS, ALL OF THEM WITH THE EXCEPTION OF IRAN OF COURSE. GOD BLESS SYRIA, MY LOVE, MY BIGGEST LOVE ON EARTH. I LOVE YOU SO MUCH DEAR LAND.

wie kann so eine wunderbares Land so einsam und zerstört sein, so leer und ängstlich.... zur Hölle Israel

Other than the vegetation, the place hasn't changed much since I was stationed at Camp Bolivar in 1975. Truly, an example of greed and cynical exploitation: Israel-"If we can't have it, you can't have it."
Syria-"Hey if we desecrate the graveyards, maybe the world will also blame that on Israel."

New Book by Namit Arora

  • The Lottery of Birth reveals Namit Arora to be one of our finest critics. In a raucous public sphere marked by blame and recrimination, these essays announce a bracing sensibility, as compassionate as it is curious, intelligent and nuanced.” —Pankaj Mishra
