In 1956 French and British fighter jets attacked Egypt during the Arab-Israeli war that year. One of their aims was to silence the Cairo radio broadcasts; and they did so successfully. However, as soon as Cairo went silent, the Damascus broadcasts from Syria announced, “From Damascus…. This is Cairo!” This gesture was a demonstration of solidarity made by Syria in support of that silenced voice.

This is a status being posted on  today in solidarity with the approximately 20 Million Syrians whose voices have been silenced due to the Assad regime’s decision to disconnect the country from the Internet.

From Pakistan….. This is Damascus!
