Our best photos from Syria
If Syria is a rogue nation of terror crusaders, then I want to be one, too. In none of my travels have I seen such massive mismatch between a nation’s character and how the Western media portrays it.
Syria is a nation of kindness. Hospitality is a sacred duty. If a visitor does not feel welcome, it’s seen as a collective failure. It’s impossible to feel lost, confused, or ignored in Syria; a willing helper is always the closest person.
And Syrians like everyone. Unlike many in the West, they know how to separate politics from personal. As people who have lived under repressive regimes themselves, they know that governments doesn’t always represent their people.
