It was really a surprise… he astonished me. Actually he shocked me. I know this face, very well, I know this smile, which hides 20 million Syrian behind!. I recognized him…. The Syrian President, Bashar Al-assad.
I saw his face a lot , but it’s the first time to see him on Facebook. Yes ….the Syrian President on Facebook, I think he is new there, since he has only 6 friends, I hope he is not fake. I hope he accept me as a “friend”. he might know that I don’t like him. But I do want to talk to him. I want to ask him at first; how he succeeded to bypass the Internet censorship in Syria and access to Facebook (Facebook is blocked in Syria since November 2007). Perhaps I’m able to help him by provide Proxy links if he promised that he will keep it secret. I would like to ask him about hundreds of blocked websites? and why there are tens of prisoners arrested for online comments? and why my blog is bolcked in Syria??
I want to ask him a little bit about Sednaya Military prison riot, what’s happened there, is my brother Omar Al-abdallah (and the 7 students group) still alive?, whose died there, and when he is going to allow prisoners family visiting again (it been a year since the riot with no news about the detainees).
I would like to talk with him also about Damascus Declaration’s group prisoner, (My father and other 11 political prisoners) what does he think about them? and why they are in jail? Why he hates them?. He probably reading news, and knows every one of them.
I would like to discuses the corruptions in the Syrian government with him, I know that He knows every thing, as he is the president, but he may NOT know that his cousin Rami Makhlouf is the biggest thief around the world, and he is stealing the Syrian people’s money.
I want to inform Al-assad about my feeling, as a Syrian living in exile; a “citizen” who can’t visit his home country, or even see his family.
Mr. President, it’s really hard to be an expatriate (I don’t wish you that). I want to visit my family, I would like to stand beside my mother (she is in hospital currently and your Excellency had arrested her husband and her other son). There are thousands just like me, dreaming of coming back home, visit their families without getting arrested in the airport.
I will ask him lots of questions, about the state security court, why it’s still working? About torture in prisons, how many prisoner died last year, and who’s responsible about their die??
I want to ask him about unemployment for 40% of the Syrian people. I would like to ask him about 20 million miserable Syrian, all their faults that he is the president.
