Resistance is culture and draws world political map

Because word can be stronger than bullet and because resistance is a thinking and culture, Damascus has hosted the 3rd resistance forum in the Damascus Opera House.

The three-day forum, kicked off Sunday under the slogan 'Resistance is Culture and Belongingness',  is a retaliation for Takfiri thinking that targeted Syria and its culture, according to Deputy Minister of Culture Tawfiq al-Imam, who asserted that the participation of Arab intellectuals in the forum reflects their support for Syria in its war against terrorism. 

While member of Hezbollah's Politburo Hasan Hobbollah said that the culture of resistance represents the spirit of nation. "Lebanon's experience has proved that we have no other choice but to confront the Zionist occupation in order to liberate the occupied lands and to restore rights. The inevitable destiny of resistance is victory no matter how long it takes”.

On his part, the political analyst Dr. Mohannad al-Zaher affirmed that the axis of resistance has started to draw the world political map in accordance with national interests after the  disclosure of the reality of the so-called the' Arab spring’.

Secretary-General of the Palestinian Popular Struggle Front (PPSF) Khalid Abdul Majed asserted that Palestinian freedom fighters and heroes of Syrian Arab army defend the honest Arabs.


The Iranian Political Researcher Dr. Ali Akbar Raefi Bor said that the  axis of resistance confronts the soft war being waged by western and colonial powers , stressing the need to  develop the culture of resistance, according to the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA).

The agency reported today that the second day of the forum included two lectures on cultural resistance and the role of cinema in unveiling terrorism's crimes.

Researches, Intellectuals, directors, actors and actresses from Syria, Palestine, Iraq, Lebanon, Tunis and Iran are participating in the activities of the forum which includes films, theatrical performances, symposiums and workshops.

The forum was held by the Damascus Countryside Directorate of Culture under the patronage of Minister of Culture Mohammad al-Ahmad.
