Mussalaha Delegation on Syrian TV

In May, 2013, I was privileged to travel to Damascus as part of an international ‘Mussalaha’ (reconciliation) delegation, let by Nobel Peace Prize winner, Mairead Maguire, and hosted by Mother Agnes Mariam.

Few in the ‘western world’ see what it is like inside Damascus at the moment, as the western media seem to have abandoned Syria, or at least they only appear by safely ’embedding’ themselves in the forces of the attacking rebels!

Apparently CNN is still in Damascus, but CNN was radically uninterested in what ‘Mussalaha’ had to say. Syrian TV, on the other hand, was very interested, and below are a few samples.

They are all in Arabic, and yet they all bring back powerful memories for me – including that of our trip to the Umayyed Mosque in Damascus, where I had the privilege of meeting the Grand Mufti of Syria, Dr Hassoun!
