With a huge capital city full of Middle Eastern tourists and refugees, I don't even have a clue whether that guy was Syrian or not. And you know what? It doesn't matter. Cos spooky assholes can be found in every country. I am just a cynic. I was quoting the Bible, not discussing if every word inside is absolute truth or not. Fact is, the Bible was written a very long time ago, and it does mention a particular street in Damascus. The conversion of Saul was a very important part of and for the New Testament. And it is written. Doesn't matter if it just said "Straight Street in Damascus" cos that sounded better than, say, "in a sorry old hut in a ditch on the way from X to Damascus". It is written, and it is what ppl believe. And it was written almost 2000 years ago. That alone is awe-inspiring. That Damascus is so old and was so important even back then.

The thing is, every Israeli who wants to go to Syria would have to resort to deceit like that, I assume (considering that an Israeli visa would have rendered my Syrian visa null and void...), no matter whether he simply wished to go an a holiday, report positively or report negatively on Syria. Just saying. Hm, a beduin in Latakia, preferably on the beach.... ;) Well, if I had seen Beduins I'd have taken pictures as well. Putting them into context might be a good idea then though. (And 29 sounds rather a lot as well.) But like my sister said, if you travel to far places, you take pictures of the things you do not see at home. Like, say, Beduins and mosques. There aren't any true mosques in Germany. Oh, there are apartment buildings with "Camii" signs hanging outside. But a "true" mosque is an impressive building with a minaret, just like churches are impressive buildings with bell/clock towers. So of course I took pictures of the Omayyad Mosque! And pictures of falafel. I'll have to wait till August again to actually go and buy falafel when there'll be a booth selling them at the medieval market a town in the vicinity has. Or I would have to make my own again, but that was quite some work (although they tasted very good, even if I say so myself). And don't forget that these Damascus posts are about a holiday I made. No matter the reasons why I chose Syria for that, in the end I was there to hang out with a friend, have fun and gather new experiences. That is what I am writing about. I'm a bit quirky, so my posts will be quirky. They're just there to tell my online (and indeed real life) friends (and possibly the odd stranger) about what I saw and experienced there. Hopefully while doing that they'll also be somewhat entertaining. Oh, today's hate doesn't only focus on Syria, ppl have become rather paranoid towards Muslims in general, no matter where they live. Ppl can be so short-sighted and prejudiced. "either with us or against us" - now you're starting to sound like Mr Bush. Just my little joke. You see, before the Iraq war that is exactly what he told the German (and French) politicians when they refused to support him. Well, no, I am living in a rather safe little country, but please don't presume what I care about or not. I don't think a war on Syrian soil is that imminent though (if you mean from the direction of the US). Bush won't be president for long anymore, and I doubt the next one will even want to keep the troups in Iraq for long. Bush really got burned with his war on Iraq, and a huge group of the American public wants their troops to come home, no matter how many Iraqi lives that might cost in the end. So I don't think anyone will feel the urge to launch an attack against Syria. The president who did that would <b>really</b> piss off the American public for good. Yeeees, Syria let a lot of Iraqi refugees in, just like Jordan. And these countries were left alone to deal with the flood of refugees by all the rich western countries, I am ashamed to say, my own country amongst them. But Iraqis are not always getting treated well in neither Syria nor Jordan, if truth be told. And these days a lot of them get forced to go back to Iraq. You see, the Caesar that gets mentioned in my posts is not the resurrected Roman Emperor but an Iraqi blogger whom I came to meet in Damascus, as we had become rather close friends over the net. And - believe it or not - I was already caring about what was happening in Iraq and to Iraqis before I came to personally know some through blogging. I just do care if bad things happen somewhere on this world. You are presuming again. I do not want to see mosques abolished, quite on the contrary, I wish my fellow countrymen would stop spinning Islamist conspiracy theories every time someone wants to build a real mosque (with minaret and all the trimmings) in one of our major cities. It's pathetic, the mud-slinging they will stoop to. I don't know about the courage of going to Syria. Returning and passing German customs sure took some more courage. ;) They seemed to be highly suspicious of a lone traveller returning from the Axil of Evil.

When he hadn’t shown up by 9:40 we thought of Saturday and left. Shortly after that Caesar got a call from the dude, and we walked back. Fortunately it didn’t take him very long to fix what had been wrong, whatever exactly that had been. Seemed to have been some problem with the wiring. What a boring day, eh? Here’s a pic to darken brighten it up: (Syrians do not keep their promises: Iraqis who fled their country because they did not want to face up to the neo-crusaders are, what a magnanimous character Caesar is, how cynical he should have this name) it passed your attention that MAYBE Syrians cant just go into your house (you being a foreigner) because MAYBE someone in the SMI was keeping an eye on you. Does the SMI have a reason to keep an eye on you? And a good one too. And the taxi accident my dear unwitting lady shows you exactly that maybe taxi drivers (SMI recruits) were passing information: where does she go? Who does she meet? At what time does she exactly go bed, oh, and, you will love this: does she have a cold or a hot shower? Another foreigner writing about my people and the only people who met here are themselves foreigners: what an experience: next year I am due in Spain: hopefully, I will get to make acquaintance with lots of Germans!

He ran into Amer, who promised that the “cleaning lady” would come at 9:30 to fix the tv problems. When he hadn’t shown up by 9:40 we thought of Saturday and left.
Shortly after that Caesar got a call from the dude, and we walked back. Fortunately it didn’t take him very long to fix what had been wrong, whatever exactly that had been. Seemed to have been some problem with the wiring.
What a boring day, eh? Here’s a pic to darken brighten it up: (Syrians do not keep their promises: Iraqis who fled their country because they did not want to face up to the neo-crusaders are, what a magnanimous character Caesar is, how cynical he should have this name) it passed your attention that MAYBE Syrians cant just go into your house (you being a foreigner) because MAYBE someone in the SMI was keeping an eye on you. Does the SMI have a reason to keep an eye on you? And a good one too. And the taxi accident my dear unwitting lady shows you exactly that maybe taxi drivers (SMI recruits) were passing information: where does she go? Who does she meet? At what time does she exactly go bed, oh, and, you will love this: does she have a cold or a hot shower?

Well, maybe Caesar should acquire the loan of an internet connection and speak up against us evil women. ;)

Yeah, I saw your friends over at the Kid’s. But - annoying as they are - they are at least logical. They don’t like you for some reason and post filth. They’re being consistent.
They don’t pretend to try and get friendly with you after all (he even apologized again in an email that day when talking seemed to get through to him), only to come back next day with even worse abuse.

This Syrian dude is just way weird… He sent me an email this morning full of derogatory crap against Iraqis (and me - and a few more veiled threats), and how they should have put them into camps at the border. But of course he isn’t…. what did he say? “i am not a muslim-fascist” Well, maybe not an Islamo-fascist (I think that’s what he meant), but his anti-Iraqi rant was sure showing some strong fascist tendencies.
