Read & Download بوابات أرض العدم ç PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free review بوابات أرض العدم 'May beone of the first political classics of the 21st century' ObserverSamar Yazbek was well known in her native Syria as a writer and a journalist but in 2011 she fell foul of the Assad regime and was forced to fleeSince then determined to bear witness to the suffering of her people she bravely revisited her homeland by sueezing through a hole in the fence on the Turkish bo. I ve become very aware of ueues The ueue at the ATM to withdraw money the ueue at the bakery to buy fresh bread and pastries the ueue at the supermarket check out to pay for food and drink the ueue to get into the cinema to see the latest film the ueue to board an aeroplane to see the world People me included complain in ueues always looking around to see if there s a faster one or if there s an official we can badger to open another check in or check out desk We look at our watches and stress about being late for some super important moment in our lives forgetting that the ueue we are standing in is itself a privileged moment one to be savoured instead of whinged about We are after all about to eat drink and be merry and yet we habitually wear grim faces our mouths turning down often than up So yes I ve become a little critical of my own complacency lately and reading this book about some of what went on in Syria in 20122013 has increased my discomfort The Crossing tells of journalist Samar Yazbe s several clandestine crossings from Turkey into the war zone of Syria after she d been declared persona non grata by the Assad regime in 2011 and been forced into exileThe book is not an easy read and not only because it is about war The early sections are fragmentary simply a series of anecdotes related by the people Yazbe stayed with in the towns and villages she visited anecdotes that do however give us a picture of what life is like for those who can t afford to pay the the price reuired to exit the country or those who have decided to stay because they are part of one of the many groups opposing the Assad regime the spouses sisters mothers aunts of the fighters The anecdotes run into each other without much pause for comment and the book seems as ragged and chaotic as the lives the author is bearing witness to lives constantly battered by barrel bombs and sniper fire Eventually I grew accustomed to this lack of a thematic structure but by then the author had found one and the second half of the book is clear cut composed of almost formal interviews with various battalion leaders interspersed with background information on the origin and history of their groups and the degree of their specific religious affiliations The author put her own life and that of her companions in danger again and again to approach the frontline and record these fighters testimonies I found her both brave and foolhardy by turns but incredibly lucky too as bombs exploded in her path again and againAt the time Yazbe is writing about 20122013 many of the groups opposing the Assad regime come under the banner of the Free Army This army is composed of the battalions and brigades which emerged in each individual rebel town when the revolution began in 2011 According to the people from the Free Army whom she interviewed they themselves are caught between Assad s Forces and fundamentalist factions composed mostly of non Syrians who have been sent into their country to fight against Assad and who are both feared and resented by native Syrian fighters Yazbe seems to have had less opportunity to interview the representatives of the non Syrian groups She makes it clear that as a woman she would not have been able to approach or interview the fundamentalist ones such as Nusra Front allied to al uaeda or the group known as Daesh a self proclaimed caliphate controlling areas in Syria and Ira and the most feared of the foreign groups She also didn t interview any of the Shabiha the armed militant supporters of Assad s regime However towards the end of her third sojourn she did manage to interview a Syrian commander of Ahrar al Sham a militant group rumoured to have ties to Muslim Brotherhood though he refused to look in her direction and spoke only to her male companion He like the others interviewed had nothing encouraging to say about any peaceful outcome in the foreseeable futureSince I finished this book the Russians have entered the war in support of Assad supposedly to help him fight the Daesh groups Hearing that the Russians are also targeting the Free Army fighters in their already bombed out towns and villages makes me despair for the Syrian women and children who can t afford to leave their country to join the ranks of compatriots ueuing endlessly at and borders across Europe and the Middle East

Read & Download بوابات أرض العدم ç PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free review بوابات أرض العدم Rder In The Crossing she testifies to the appalling reality that is Syria today From the first innocent demonstrations for democracy through the beginnings of the Free Syrian Army to the arrival of ISIS she offers remarkable snapshots of soldiers children ordinary men and women simply trying to stay aliveSome of these stories are of hardship and brutality that is hard to bear. Heartbreaking I have no words that could do justice describing the horrors that have happened in Syria A beautiful country with an ancient history it got thrown into ruins in the blink of an eye While I cannot claim to know the whole story or even decide who is in the right all I can say is that I felt guilt sadness anger frustration helplessness disgust and horror when I read Samar s descriptions of the plight of Syrians All they wanted was peace and to live their lives but instead all they know now is bloodshed and death I feel silly to even think reading Samar s words and shedding tears could bring me closer to the pain those embroiled in the conflict feel My empathy if anything is shamefully temporary as I have not experienced the wretchedness of a life like this first hand If anything her account has made me feel blessed for living in a safe country free of war At the same time I feel helpless for having no ability to stop or change anything happening to this once glorious country My heart goes out to all Syrians and while I know this won t mean much or even anything at all my prayers are with you and I hope you ll know peace as I do in your homeland one day The Longest Afternoon you and I hope Glory Goals and Greed you ll know peace as I do in Spoken From the Front 2 your homeland one day
