Expatriates

 Arab Syrian emigrants who, once they know that you came from Syria, they would, spontaneously, rush to stop you, and ask you about their homeland when I reached Allentown, the capital of Pennsylvania, I started to feel relaxed and at home. People gladly came to welcome me with warm zeal until I felt as if I were in Damascus. I asked my companion, “Who are these people?” “Those are Syrians, Lebanese, and Palestinians. The majority of people in this town are from Syria, Lebanon and Palestine. They came in here more than a century ago, settled here and gave the place the name: “Amar Al-Hosn ò (after a village in Homs, adjacent to the Crac des Chevaliers).

March in Paris to Voice Support for Syria's Battle against Terrorism

PARIS-Members of the Syrian community in Paris on Sunday organized a massive march to voice their support for the Syrian state and army in the confrontation of the armed terrorist groups and to stress their rejection of foreign intervention in Syria's internal affairs.

Arab, French and other foreign participants joined the march to express solidarity with Syrian people in the face of the global war waged on Syria.

The march started from St. Michel square in Paris and toured the city's streets leading to Pantheon square where participants gathered carrying the Syrian flag and pictures of President Bashar Al-Assad to affirm their solidarity with Syria and the Syrian army's battle against terrorism.

The marchers condemned foreign intervention in Syria's affairs through the support provided by some countries to the armed terrorist groups killing the Syrian people and destroying its economy and infrastructure.

A group of those calling themselves "opposition" attacked the marchers, a matter that required intervention by the French police to stop attackers and send them away from the march.
