Kevin Sites on Syria’s bloggers – welcome to Syria

January 31st, 2006 · 7 Comments · Uncategorized

If you are a first time visitor, coming from Kevin Sites’ report…welcome.

American journalist Kevin Sites is posting his final report from Syria this week. He has spent a week in the country, filing video reports about some un-seen aspects of Syrian life: clubbing, the border, free-speech and blogging.

Although simplistic, his analysis has always been insightful and open-armed. It seems he is trying to show the world the real face of Syria. And he has done a very good job.

I will continue to support exciting journalistic experiments like Sites’. He has also filed a series of reports from Lebanon – and he’ll be travelling to a number of other ‘Hot Zones’ during his year-long expedition.

In the meantime, he’s always welcome back in Syria.

Note: he has linked to four Syrian blogs in his article on blogging – including this one. If you are a first time visitor to this site…welcome. Ayman has a comprehensive list of Syria’s blogosphere here.

    Bloggers of Syria,

    My name is David, I’m an American student at the University of Marquette. I wish to comment on a lot of the blogs i’ve been reading on your sites.

    I am truly troubled on the way some Syrians think about the US. We only receive the news about you and your respected country. NO ONE thinks that your country is a group of terrorists or primitive people. There is no great discussion about the way you people run your country nor the people in it. Quite frankly we don’t know too much about your country nor do we wish ill-will towards you.

    Being a student of foreign affairs I think that most of the bloggers are miss-informed about the way the US citizens think about Syrians. All I ever seem to read about Syrian bloggers, is that the US think Syrians are primitive people and that the US wants to take it over and spread democracy. That notion is a greatly miss-informed conception on the part of Syrain bloggers.

    You must understand the US before you critique us! We are a country of MANY diverse cultures. These cultures have many thoughts and ideas of the proper way to live life. We are not one nation, one people with a direct root to living properly! Many of us think differently and have different outlooks on life as well as other countries. YOU cannot judge us as a “whole.”

    My point is: we don’t think of trying to take over Syria and spreading Capitalism; we wish only to see the people of Syria as other countries live a equal and opportunistic, egalitarian life-style. Most people in the US want to see all countries achieve success and happiness.

    These are not just words, they are a reality. I would love further discussion with any people who would like to hold a serious and respectable conversation.

    Thank you.

    [This has been used to save the lives of Katrina/Rita/Wilma refugees]

    Suicide/impulsive depression/self-injury prevention…..[a figure of
    speech, a life preserver made up of words!!]
    Please help me END suicide & spread this eveywhere! It works, which is
    the only point!

    Read with the kind of open mind that conquers the
    “SUICIDE VACCINE”: ………..You don’t have to
    believe in God to sense that there are unseen,
    negative forces at work against the human race; vast,
    heartless, loveless and unsympathetic. (If you don’t
    believe in anything you can’t see, touch or feel,
    you’re vulnerable!
    Expand your horizon to understand that ALL of life is
    connected and has a great impact on us, whether we can
    see it or not!….like a virus,with the naked eye, for
    instance.) Fallen angels (who are JUST as real as YOU
    are, who hide behind our deceived ignorance of their
    REAL methods, who lost their “day jobs” and have
    nothing better to do than prey on us, and who are

    lled “demons”) get sheer delight in tricking humans
    into self-murder and slaughter us like slave/cattle
    daily (as well as other deadly deceptions such as
    incited, outward violence)!
    One such deception we call “suicide”. The word “angel”
    means “messenger”. The ‘Maker of All Things’ had
    designed angels to carry His thoughts and put them
    into the mind of man.
    The fallen angels can still place their thoughts
    directly into any human’s mind, in that human’s very
    own thought voice….YOUR thought voice! (Ever had an
    angry or impulsive thought, word or action that you
    knew wasn’t you? We all have!!)

    “Suicide risk” people (and others) that don’t know or
    ACCEPT that this tampering can be done to them are
    stuck thinking that was what they really wanted to do.
    In play also is the demon’s ability to incite, to
    manipulate our feelings and emotions, dragging us
    along the bottom of our lives (depression or pain of
    any sort, whether physical or emotional) and setting
    us up for a deadly trick, often through isolation,
    arrogance, never-ending boredom or impulsive behavior
    (we are most vulnerable here!).
    Also, the more self-absorbed or self-centered the
    individual is, the more susceptible they are (involve
    yourself with other’s needs as a
    defense….others-centered rather than self-centered

    LOVE is what you do for ALL others that is in their
    highest or best interest, anytime, anywhere,
    selflessly! 24/7).
    People with good fortune shining on them would hardly
    listen to a suicide thought, as out of place as it
    would be there and a noticeable implant into their
    thought process. The bad guys have thousands of lures
    that get most of us (like $$money$$…which took the
    place of Love in the USA….entertainment, sports &
    business….which took the place of Family, “soaps”
    etc., but we can be inoculated against the
    fooling trick of suicide and eradicate it now that the
    REAL source has finally been revealed! HELP to spread
    this objective truth around freely to PREVENT more
    needless deaths and tragedies, to PROTECT the human
    race, including those you love!

    “People who don’t believe that the devil walks this
    earth have not seen the things I’ve seen (terrible
    human slaughter). I believe that there is such a thing
    as true evil, and that there is true goodness.” [Dr.
    Ronald Wright:: Broward County Medical Examiner,
    Mick’s response: “I realised
    recently that if I ever caused an upset with someone –
    knowingly or unknowingly – that I would try to handle
    this upset by harming myself in an effort to placate
    the other person. This included serious physical
    damage to myself and attempted suicide. Having spotted
    this info (Suicide Vaccine), I am now no longer going
    to do it and wished to let you know this. It would be
    better for me to confront the things I have caused and
    handle them. Love Mick.”

    “The greatest trick the devil has ever pulled is
    convincing the human race that he doesn’t exist.” The
    Usual Suspects

    “Reality is something that when you stop believing in
    it, it doesn’t go away”. Philip K. Dick

    I have to agree with David.
    One of the international perceptions of the U.S. that I experienced in Greece, Turkey, Egypt, Palestine, and Iraq is that of an zealous, self-righteous, arrogant nation. Fortunately this is not a universal belief about us.
    Frankly I think this perception is a creation of our own media as our political parties vye for power by challenging each others actions.
    I am certainly not saying that we don’t have various parts of society that display those elements of character, however the predominant components of the American value system is of opportunity, freedom, humanity, and self expression.

    David you are right the US is the best country i have ever seen it is to me the promised land ,what makes this country great is the economic ,legal and politecal systems that are in this country,the American people are the most jenourous people in the wourld they are the most compationate and have the most noble intentions ,the problem is that our govonment is leading in a wrong direction to help other countries ,do you realy think that other countries do not want to improve ,the problem is our approch to helping others hitting the wrong nerve and making us hated in the wourld decreasing our exports and increasing our budget defficit,yes i am American who came from Syria so i know the misinformation that the American media tells about syria ,Syria wants to improve but does not want the Iraqi or the Aghgani style,i hope this note will assure you Syrian do not like any people more than the American people but they do not like the American policy,and that is giving you the wrong impretion.
