SYRIAN REFUGEES IN CAMPS ON TURKISH BORDER: WE BELIEVE IN GOD, WE WILL WIN IN THE END……..

 

The ones who ‘win’ are the ones who are the last ones left standing after the bullets or stamina runs out.

I don’t see anyone ‘winning’, the society as a whole stands to lose no matter which way you look, they’ll just be stuck with whatever totalitarianism and submit, it’s the Islamic way.

’We believe in God and we will win in the end’

GAZIANTEP, Turkey – Scores of displaced refugees outside the small town of Kilis along the Syria-Turkey border discussed in late September their desire to oust President Bashar Assad, Israel’s role in the unfolding conflict and a post-Assad Syria.

As part of The Jerusalem Post’s ongoing coverage of the Syrian civil war, the viewpoints of Syrian refugees play a front-and-center role. (Many of those mentioned in this report cannot be identified because of possible retaliation against family members in Syria.) “We hope to pull the regime down,” said Ziad, whose body was riddled with bullet wounds. Two Syrian men served as his human crutches; he cannot walk without their help.

Ziad lost family members in the conflict.

The regime’s security apparatus arrested him for hoisting a “revolutionary flag” against Assad’s regime. He explained that he was tortured by the Shabiha – Assad’s sadistic street thugs – who “hit his limbs with a hammer.” He showed his disfigured index finger, the top part having been sliced off during his imprisonment.

Ziad is affiliated with the Free Syrian Army. Despite the enormous toll of war on his body – and the destruction of his family and existence – he remains remarkably confident. “The rebels are stronger. They have something to fight for. I do not care if they cut my hands, fingers. Other people will fight against them.”

He added, “We believe in God and we will in the end.”
