The third Manar 2092
It’s with great sorrow sadness and despair that we received news of suppression of demonstrators calling for freedom and reform in Syria and the news of dozens of deaths in protests that erupted during the past two weeks.
From my position as a Tunisian citizen and my love to Syria and the Holiness of the human spirit, I invite you to reflect on the fate of this great people knowing that more than repression doesn’t only further condemn the brutality of the system but would encourage rebellion against the oppressor…
The Syrian people, like all other peoples of our Arab region, has the right to enjoy all the basic human rights denied to them since a long time, and that the bloody crackdown of peaceful demonstrations and the killing of the aspirations of the people toward freedom, dignity, participation, and reform can only be compounded by the state of tension, anger and violence ..
So, I invite you, Sir, to draw the correct lessons from what happened in Tunisia and Egypt and what is happening in Libya, Yemen and Bahrain as each attempt to contain the popular discontent by force and bullying did not result only in more bloodshed to which responsible will be held accountable to it in this world or the Hereafter.
Please condemn the aggressions against the call of the Syrian people in public that they know they have men of good conscience.
We hope, Sir, to see Syria free and for Syrian citizen to live honored and fulfilling all their rights.
The angels didn’t prostrate to Adam in vain and so the name of Islam wasn’t derived from peace just by coincidence.
We count on your understanding.
