Summer 2005 was not a good time for Syria. It was under mounting international pressure, received mostly bad press and was the subject of a few security council resolutions. Syria was portrayed as an outlaw state and a failure.

Syrians were both frustrated and confused at the negativity. They are mostly a group of good, peaceful and generous people ... and their contributions to humanity over thousands of years prove they are creative people.

This website is an independant effort by Syrians in Montreal that hopes to improve the communication process between Syria and the rest of the world. It has taken over 1500 volunteer hours to finish.

We are happy the reaction so far shows we have a major success!

Hope you enjoy it too.
