#Syria : Rola El Khash’s message to Syrian mother, 11.9.12
My message is for the Pro Syrian Regime:
I believe no mother would send her son to kill, but you are sending your sons to kill, you are helping the regime to kill the people. I wish you stand in solidarity, we are one, the people, we have the same fate. Regimes go and people remain. No regime in the world remains at the end, it will go! We are one people, and we will live together. I wish you take a strong position against this regime, STOP sending our children to kill! Our brothers must not fight each other! What is happening in Syria is that brothers are killing each other. A mother can’t accept that brothers kill each other! My words are for mothers, I know the suffering of a mother who loses her son (tears in her eyes) the Syrian people are killing each other, this is not acceptable! We are losing our sons for a seat (bashar)! Please think of what I said deeply, that we are losing our sons and our country for a seat (bashar), for the sake of a person who refuses to step down. That person is no longer our president, since the first drop of blood that fell in Syria. He got to the presidency in an illegitimate way and you know that very well. I ask you to be one, just with your people, we ALL have one fate!
