Syrian Drama TV channel launches

April 9th, 2009 · 33 Comments · Media

picture-1The long awaited Syrian Drama channel has finally launched. Although someone forgot to take the ‘test transmission’ label off the screen.

At first, it will only broadcast Syrian made productions. There has been a long discussion about whether to show drama from around the Arab World, or whether this should be a celebration of Syrian drama.

But the focus isn’t just on Syria. There will be a series about Arab comedy – from Syria, Egypt and across the Arab World.

There will also be a focus on award winning drama, with a regular one-hour slot for films which have received global recognition.

And for expatriates, many series are going to be translated into English, French and Spanish.

Syrian Drama is now available across the world (ArabSat, Hotbird Europe and Galaxy in North/South America). But Egyptian-owned NileSat is refusing to carry the channel.

    The Syrian people must have civic rights to freedom of expression.
    Remember:neither a dictator and the army can not kill the voice of Freedom!!
    Only cowards and thugs shoot at civilians, a brave and honorable soldiers protect civilians.

    Syrian soldier,Syrian officer,Syrian politician,Syrian people:REMEMBER WHO YOU ARE!!
    Walter William Safar poet


    Demonic fires blaze in the eye of the stone palace,
    and me,
    I only stand in the dark beneath the sky
    that reaches its invisible hands
    out towards scores of nameless graves.
    For callous dictator Assad,
    they are but nameless graves
    upon which no one’s tear fell.
    They were silently and swiftly buried into the black soil,
    without speeches and tears,
    without too many imprints
    on the black soil.
    (They say that everyone’s life is worth attention,
    and that the dark truth is that only death equally appreciates each life)
    And while they treacherously, silently and swiftly
    dug a new nameless grave,
    only death was faithfully listening to the crickets
    feverishly spluttering away in the dark
    to honor the dead child.
    In the hazy grave lies the child,
    like a shadow of many dreams,
    and the raindrop,
    brought from the honorable mountain
    by the honorable wind,
    softly and timidly trembles
    on the dead poet’s white face,
    like an angel’s tear.
    And dictator, tycoons and thugs
    are sitting in the golden loges now,
    ghastly and faithfully acting:
    the righteous, the charitable, the Believers,
    crying their copper voices
    out into Global silence,
    like a copper bell,
    and the dead child
    now waits for one tear
    in a nameless grave.

    ©Walter William Safar


    Tell me FREEDOM…

    Oh…tell me Hope

    Does your hot breath

    Travel the cold mountain,

    -where the solitary scream

    strays through the pestiferous fog-

    Tell me,golden FREEDOM

    Tell me hope

    How can I descend

    Into the mild valley

    Where Your wings

    Chase away

    The fog

    Towards the white heavenly fields

    Where yours wings

    Chase away the screm

    Oh the Life

    Did our acquaintance

    Turn into

    An everlasting friendship


    Golden hope

    My friend!…

    My Life!

    Is what I drink from your spirit…

    From yours spirit-

    Howdy would you mind letting me know which hosting company you’re working with? I’ve loaded your
    blog in 3 different browsers and I must say this blog
    loads a lot quicker then most. Can you recommend a
    good internet hosting provider at a reasonable price?
    Many thanks, I appreciate it!

    2 to 7 0, which is invented to be the blood and nutrient resource
    to the teeth. One of these options is to use dental
    implants to replace missing teeth, signs of periodontal disease.

    When you ignore your teeth, gums and the surrounding teeth.

    In 2010, we paid $60 for a full mouth periodontal evaluation, including X-rays, to screen for
    periodontal disease. Started in 1979, Careington originated with
    two dentists who wanted to see best at home teeth whitening offered to the public.
