A Message to Obama from Bashar al-Assad

“Obama drew that line, and Obama can draw lines himself and his country, not for other countries. We have our red lines, like our sovereignty, our independence, while if you want to talk about world red lines, the United States used depleted Uranium in Iraq, Israel used White Phosphorous in Gaza, and nobody said anything. What about redlines? We don’t see redlines. It’s political red lines”. – Bashar al-Assad.

Children in the Middle East

I heard you hated your life… Wishing you were dead…wanting to run away… Or sticking a gun to your head…cutting yourself so you can ease your “pain” ever thought of the children in the Middle-East and how their lives will never be the same?You complain that life isn’t fair while you have a family…home…and people who love you… While babies in Syria are being blown to pieces… Kids in Palestine are being shot in every angle… Families lost… And forever broken… You complain life sucks but you never enjoyed the moment…

You cry  over the person who broke your heart… While children in the Middle-East cry over their parents grave…Someone who is forever lost…Wishing it was them that God had taken away…

Disobey your parents… Roll your eyes and call them names… Others in the world are making the best of every moment they have with their parents by their side.. While others who are less fortunate cry over their parents remains… “Oh daddy…why?… Why are you dead? Please God, take me instead… Bring back my dad for my mother and her kids”…
You cry over a scratch on your arm and think its the end… What about those missing limbs? You want to leave your home because you’re sick of life… How about those new borns who never got to enjoy a minute of their new life…these are the children of the Middle-East… All their lives spent on the streets… Losing their loved ones and being buried alive. Oh if you could only hear the things they cry about at night… “Mommy… Don’t leave me… What am I going to do?…. Daddy is already in heaven… Now i’m losing you too?”…. He broke down into tears and looked up in the sky… Angels came down to earth and gave his mother the wings to fly… And she flew away… Far into the sky…
