When Homeland Calls Sons Must Answer

Meeting the needs of the homeland's prosperity, security and stability is a natural, logical and national duty of all who live on its lands.

One of the most urgent need of our homeland today is dialogue, so whatever our political orientations or social backgrounds are, we, as citizens of this homeland need to join efforts to ensure a healthy environment and a suitable ground for making this dialogue a success and fruitful.

The homeland, adores unity, seeks coexistence and respects tolerance, amity and cooperation among its citizens. It rejects fragmentation attempts and renounces all who are connected with foreign agenda's. However, the question is would sons of the homeland be honest enough to respond positively to its calls so as its bleeding wounds are cured?

What is sure is that a wide range of Syrians are convinced that the potentials of the homeland and the blood of its sons could be saved to the main battle with Israel, the homeland's sole enemy.

Therefore, it is time for all to stop the bloodshed in Syria, go back to the right track and unify efforts to defend the homeland, preserve the unity of its land and maintain its social cohesion and state of coexistence among all components and spectra of the Syrian society. All are invited now to contribute to enriching dialogues and consultative meetings which pave the way for comprehensive national dialogue that restores security and stability to the homeland. All must also contribute to rebuilding Syria on new bases under the umbrella of the homeland, the guarantor of its citizens' rights.

No need to remind of facts or repeat the talk about the common interest shared by all the Syrians. No need also to review the homeland's firm principles as they have become evident. What is the most urgent now is to mobilize the Syrians' efforts and work together for a better and a stronger Syria.
