    It’s about time someone has given him some credit. He’s arguably the greatest politician in Syria’s modern history, and the most fanatic believer in democracy and freedom.

    I wonder if he will give the lecture in Arabic or English?

    his grand sons became arm dealers in 1970s and 1980s, and as result of that many became homeless, orphans and widows in Lebanon, Iraq, Syria, Iran … etc.
