To The Minorities of Syria: Meet Your Protector

To The Minorities of Syria: Meet Your Protector

An imaginary memo on Syria
Did We Reach the Limit of Syrian Tragedy?
How Four Years of Civil War Has Destroyed Syria

The Assad regime has arrested Youssef Abdelke, a prominent artist whose work has adorned the walls of the British Museum and L’institut du Monde Arabe located in Paris. To the minorities of Syria, we say: Meet your protector, the psychopath Baschar al-Assad.

His wife, Hala Alabdalla, herself a filmmaker, began a Facebook Page to free her husband who was born in 1951. Abdelke was arrested with two others at a checkpoint in Tartus on Thursday.

Before he was arrested, he told Reuters at a gallery in Beirut where dozens of his works were on display:

“I think all the works in one way or another try to express the concerns and emotions of the ordinary Syrian citizen amid this huge river of blood.”

Abdelke is a Syrian Christian.

His art has been quite expressive of the Syrian civil war and its tragedy on the Syrian people; He also is a member of the Syrian opposition against the Assad regime.

The Syrian minorities deserve better than to be deceived by a con man and a psychopath named Baschar al-Assad who claims to be their protector when in fact he is as much their butcher and their tormentor.
