IN DAMASCUS ARTISAN AREA: "NONE OF THIS WOULD BE POSSIBLE IF THE TERRORISTS RULED"




Walking with a friend, Lulwa, through what was a khan (inn) in the past, now an area for traditional and new crafts. She makes the apt point: were Damascus under the rule of what the west called "rebels", al-Qaeda and co-terrorists, none of this would be possible.

This is the Syrian culture that existed prior to the war on Syria, and the culture that continues to exist, in spite of everything the West and Gulf/Israeli/Turkish allies have done to destroy Syria
