We are one

January 14th, 2009 · 3 Comments · Uncategorized

The Syrian blogosphere has become one. I don’t mean that in the usual ‘campaigning’ way. I mean, we all sound the same.

We have lost our identity, our unique styles, our idiosyncrasies. We just have one focus: Gaza.

Almost every single post I have read is in some way linked to the massacre. Others are dealing with it in their own way, and not posting at all. We are all for Gaza.

We don’t need some joint ‘letter’, some ‘group’, we just are. We are all for Gaza.

I’ll tell you how I noticed this. I was reading a new blog I’d found, called Souvenirs and Scars and I realised, I couldn’t tell too much about her personality (not from the recent posts anyway). We are all for Gaza.

And yes, you may have noticed the contrast between this post and the previous one. It is deliberate but not planned.

    You are absolutely right. An astute observation.

    “United we stand, divided we fall.” Truer words were never spoken. Too right about the incongruence between this and your last post. Thank God for small mercies!

    While we may be united as one cause now, I only pray that once this is over we will continue to act as one unit. God willing.
