SYRIAN AMERICAN FORUM TOUR DE FORCE AS AMBASSADOR JAAFARI LAYS OUT THE WAR CRIMES; GRAND MUFTI HASSOON AND DEPUTY PATRIARCH LOUQAA CHAMPION TOLERANCE AND FRATERNITY; NEWS AND COMMENTARY

It was to start at 4:00 p.m. but because Dr. Jaafari’s travel connections delayed him, the affair did not start until 5:30 p.m. after Dr. Jaafari had landed and passed through the usual post-9-11 unpleasantness’s. Luckily, many friends were in attendance so I wasn’t left to doze off in the lobby of the Burton Manor.

There were 4 speakers.  The first speech was delivered by Ousama Seblani, Editor in Chief of the Arab-American News (Sada Al-Watan).  It was meant to be rousing and the audience clapped numerous times to the triumphant and adulatory cadences depicting the courageous Syrian Army, people and, of course, President Bashar Al-Assad.

The second speaker was piped in from Damascus through Skype.  He was the Patriarchal Vicar Archibishop of Saydnaaya, His Eminence Louka Al-Khouri.  His speech was imbued with deep affection for the Syrian people and even deeper understanding of the travails to which they were being subjected in this day.  He discussed the situation in Ma’loolaa, the kidnapped nuns in Yabrood and the on-going SAA operation in ‘Adraa Workers’ Residences.  Incidentally, the audience was mixed with many Sunnis, Shi’is and Christians from Lebanon, Syria and Palestine.

On a split screen, we then had the chance to listen to a true champion of religious tolerance, His Eminence, the Grand Mufti of Syria,  Al-Shaykh Ahmad Badreddeen Hassoon.  In the tradition of laureled Sufis like our beloved Shaykh Al-Bouti who was murdered by terrorists this year while conducting classes at the Al-Iman Mosque, Shaykh Hassoon exuded understanding and fraternity.  He exhorted all Syrians to remember their country and to work hard to help it during these most troubling of times.

After some questions from the audience directed at the two clergymen, Dr. Jaafari took the floor and gave a preliminary talk about the situation at the U.N. and the overall atmosphere in the shadow of the upcoming conference in Switzerland.  He made some important points before he opened the floor for questions.

One point I believe will be of importance to readers is the unprecedented number of documented facts concerning foreign involvement in Syria’s internal affairs.  Dr. Jaafari brought a sample of over 500 separate memoranda directed to Secretary General Ban by him and his staff on the number of foreign terrorists either killed or in custody in Syria.  The lists were substantial and included not only the names of the rodents, but, the names of their fathers and mothers among other relevant details.  The fact that there were over 500 separate communications with the SG was made all the more remarkable by Jaafari’s assertion that most ambassadors to the U.N. don’t send more than 5 memos to the SG during any 5 years of their tenure.  It was clear to SyrPer that the Syrian government was setting up a legal case against the criminals in Riyadh, Doha, Washington D.C., Paris, Amman, Ankara and London,, inter alia.

Dr. Jaafari spoke for some time.  It was his intention not to address the audience in a long-winded way so as to introduce a “Town Hall” format.  However, in the tradition of his ancestors and mine, he still could not but expatiate at length about a sundry list of issues before the floor was opened up for audience participation.  It was worth it, nonetheless.

I think this was a tour de force for the Syrian-American Forum.  The appearance in Los Angeles was evidently very successful and so it was here in the Detroit area.  It has become clear to me from the statistics we provide and the facts coming from personages like the ambassador and the two clergymen, that we are winning and more quickly than you think.  ZAF

DAYR EL-ZOR:

A risibly inept operation by ISIS at the military airbase just southwest of Dayr El-Zor went oh-so-awfully wrong when the approach was picked up by local informants before the rodents got within 25 miles of the base.  It was glorious.  NDF were called in from the city to buttress the defenses.

The base commandant ordered all aircraft either inside reinforced hangars or into the air to handle the developing situation.  When Syria’s MiG23s identified the rodent group as ISIS (their flags gave it all away) and their number, (around 200), they strafed them pitilessly.  The number dead is now at 38 and rising.  No names, yet.

I’ll try to get the detailed news to you tomorrow morning.  

TO ALL MY READERS:  HAPPY NEW YEAR AND VICTORY IN ALL OF NATURAL SYRIA.  MAY THE ZIONIST BE DRIVEN FROM THE LAND.  ZAF
