A safe haven..

The FT's Roula Khalaf was reporting on how Syrian border guards were eager to help people crossing from Lebanon escaping the Israeli bombings. Similarly, the American invasion of Iraq and subsequent breakdown of the security situation led many Iraqis to flee to Syria for safety.

Kudo's for the Syrian government for providing a safe haven for our fellow Arabs. It only underlines how in the end of the day, all we have is each other. The UN, America and the rest of the West are about as concerned about the Arab world as a scientist is to a frog he is dissecting.
