Here’s a chance for all my Syrian and American friends to make a difference. If you didn’t see this video, watch it. This is an interview conducted by Wolf Blitzer. He is interviewing Bouthaina Shaaban, an advisor to President Bashar Al Assad of Syria. If you are Syrian, and you agree with what she says, or if you are American and you think that the United States government shouldn’t be using our tax dollars to fund Al Qaeda and other terrorists in Syria, send an email to Wolf Blitzer and tell him. Ms. Shaaban gave an excellent interview in English and was clear about what is happening in Syria and about what would be helpful to the Syrian people. You might also look for a Facebook link to Wolf Blitzer. It felt good to hear her say these things on an American news channel. You will notice that she is saying what Syrians have been saying from the beginning of this conflict.
