Muslims of Liberated Saraqeb, Syria, put up Christmas Tree for Local Christians

Muslims of Syrian town of Saraqeb put up Christmas tree for local Christians.

The young man who is being interviewed stresses the unity of all Syrians, whether Muslim, Christian, Druze, etc.

The Syrian revolutionaries took it at the beginning of November. It was subsequently the site of the execution of captured Syrian army troops. Last spring, the Syrian military was also accused of war crimes in Saraqeb.

  1. This is nice to see. But religious tolerance is/was widespread under Assad. If anything, if the “free Syrian army” takes reign, scenes like this will be remnants of the past.

  2. That is very kind to do for others. This world does not need, hate and violence. I am very weary of seeing innocent people killed. I am tired of seeing children, with no arms or legs. I am tired of seeing dead people lying in streets.

    Muhammad so I was told, was a very wise, gentile, kind prophet, very tolerant of others. Many Muslim people have said this to me. Muhammad was a teacher to his people and, that is what he taught.

  3. Well that’s a most wonderful thing, and boy did I need to see that.

    Wopila!

    (Thank you in Lakota. And to you, too, Oui, and Egyptian123)

    We see you.

  4. a nice gesture,,but could someone interpret the graffiti(s) on the wall behind this production??????
    really curious to see what the “mood” of this community is.

    • Kenbro, to the right of the tree (when facing it) it says “O’ green Syria, you are green” as in beautiful. To the left of the tree, in the smaller green font it says “Syria is for everyone (for all)”; the red font is too fancy I can’t read it.

      Generally all the graffiti seems positive and uplifting.
