On Sectarianism

Qusayr is hardly a victory for a regime whose record is stained by the blood of close to 100,000 Syrians. A major concern for many Syrians remains the threats posed to the fabric of Syrian society before and especially after Qusayr. Perhaps this concern prompted poet and filmmaker Hala Mohammad to write "On Sectarianism" 
On Sectarianism:
Syrians pray for Syrians daily,
they long for each other;
the murderers tormented us,
tormented Syria,
bloodied our lives,
but failed to drive us apart.
Syria, I trust you
(From the Facebook of Hala Mohammed)
