I continue to be surprised at the lack of information the west receives about Syria–at how the propaganda has made some people believe Syria should be taken down.

I receive hate mail whenever I write something positive about Syria, which I have done the last few days. But I realize that its because of what western media has fed people.

If you only watch five or ten minutes of this interview with Asmaa al-Assad, First Lady of Syria, you will learn so much about what Syria is fighting for and that it is not some backward, evil place.
