Resistant, Jerusalem is not in Homs
We the vulnerable on earth, we the poor on earth, we the ones with no strength or power, we who complain to you our weaknesses and the lack of ploy.
We the Syrians or the remains of us, displaced or exiled, dead or half alive, we the Syrians, those history never sang a song like it’s singing now…
We the Shiites, and the family of the house (Shia and Ahl Albayt), the vulnerable, and we the Sunnis, the best successors to the best ancestors (predecessors), we the straight path, the salt of the earth, the wise, the Qarmatians, the first supporters and followers.
We now are the palm tree in the desert, showered by axes… All this is happening to us….. If only we never wrote the alphabets, if only we were never there, and if only we were never here, and I fret to say if only we were never born, and I fret to say if only it wasn’t my country…
Forgive me, if a soul and hope remained in me.
نحن المستضعفين في الارض نحن المساكين في الأرض نحن الذين لاحول لهم و لا قوة نحن الذين نشكو لك ضعفنا وقلة حيلتنا … نحن السوريون أو ما تبقى منا من مهجرين او منفيين او موتى او انصاف احياء نحن السوريون الذي لم يغني التاريخ اغنية كما يغنيها الآن … نحن الشيعة وآل البيت المستضعفين ونحن السنة وخير خلف لخير سلف نحن الصراط المستقيم نحن ملح الأرض نحن العقل وآخر القرامطة وأول التابعين والانصار … نحن الآن شجرة النخيل في صحراء تنهال علينا الفؤوس … كل هذا يحصل لنا … يا ليتنا ما كتبنا الابجدية ويا ليتنا ما كنا هناك و يا ليتنا ما كنا هنا وأخاف ان أقول يا ليتنا ما ولدنا و أخاف أن أنطقها يا ليتها ما كانت بلادي..
(اغفر لي إن تبقى فيّ روح و أمل )
Outgoing head of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) in Syria on Wednesday offered a dire prognosis for the war-torn nation, saying the conflict would continue to pose risks far beyond Syria’s borders.
“If a solution is not found soon, a political solution, in Syria, the whole area, the whole region will be affected. It’s already affected. It will deteriorate even more”, Marianne Gasser told a panel discussion at Washington-based Wilson Center.
According to the UN, Syria’s civil war has left more than 80,000 people dead, displacing over four million internally, and sending approximately 1.5 million others to flee Syria’s borders into neighboring countries.
“If the fighting would stop even tomorrow it would take years to reconstruct this country, and especially even more to reconciliate [sic] the different people,” Ms Gasser said.
The now two-plus year conflict also risks a regional escalation of the fighting along sectarian lines, highlighted by a still-unfolding battle for Qusair, a Syrian town close to Lebanese border, which Syrian rebels said had seen dozens of Iranian-backed Hezbollah militants killed fighting alongside Syrian troops since Sunday.
Earlier in May, Israeli war planes in Syria hit an alleged shipment of “game-changing” weapons, advanced missiles which the Jewish state said were destined to Hezbollah in Lebanon.
And, in the deadliest spillover of violence in Turkey, the southern town of Reyhanli near the Syrian border was hit by twin car bombings on May 11 which killed 51 people, including Syrian shelter seekers. For the attacks, Turkey has blamed terrorist groups with “direct links” to the Syrian regime and intelligence.
UN’s refugee agency has said the total number of people in need of assistance in Syria has reached 8.3 million, or 38 percent of the country’s population.
