Sylvain Tesson, a free writer who talks about Syria

Unbelievable ! Le Figaro has decided to diversify its sources and analyzes of the war in Syria! Confined for seven years in the politically correct, with a few exceptions, our daily well-thought gives the floor to Sylvain Tesson. This unconventional writer-traveler rolled his hump in Siberia, in the footsteps of the escapees of the gulag, along the Berezina, in search of the Great Army, on the shore of Lake Baikal, in silence and solitude. And even in France, “on the black roads” of rural life, condemned by globalization.

And our writer-traveler, once again, does not disappoint us.

He surveyed Syria where he saw Damascus, Palmyra, Aleppo, Homs. He stopped at Maaloula, the martyred Christian village. He bivouacked at Crac des Chevaliers, the most beautiful castle of the Crusades. This is an opportunity to restore the truth. While the Western media was silencing us that the “rebels” (a convenient name to avoid calling them Islamists) had conquered the Crac, he questions the conservative, Hazem Hanna: “Eight hundred terrorists occupied the Crac. Tunisians, Chechens, Algerians, arrived from Lebanon. It was a platform for access to Homs, as in the days of the Crusades! They were killed in hand-to-hand combat. “

Of course, when you listen to the Syrians themselves and not the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (OSDH), it is different.

In Palmyra, he contemplated the destruction of the terrorists of the Islamic State, recalling opportunely they merely applied the 59th verse of the 18th Sura.

The Russians recaptured the “Pearl of the Desert”, gave a symbolic concert in the ancient theater and Sylvain Tesson observes that “the Western powers could not be content to applaud Vladimir Putin and his orchestra. NATO was forced to become more involved in the fight against the Islamic State. “

He could have added that it was also an opportunity for Americans to illegally occupy one-third of Syria, but do not be too greedy.

Above all, Sylvain Tesson gives us the precious testimony of the Greek-Melkite archbishop of Aleppo, Monseigneur Jeanbart: “I have six [reconstruction] projects in progress. The monastery of St. Basil is already raised. I want to go fast. For the example. Exiles make a mistake for themselves to stay in Europe. Exile is not a solution for anyone. “

As Tesson finely observes, how can it be explained that the West today has instituted “a mystic of displacement” ? “It is more celebrated than the ethics of the resistance or the Ulyssian aesthetic of the return … Jacques Julliard said that the immigrant had become the substitute proletarian for a political class that no longer interested small people. “

The wind has turned. No offense to Laurent Fabius, Front al-Nosra did not do “a good job” and will be defeated. No offense to Donald Trump, “the animal” Bachar is still in place.

And contrary to what the journalistic doxa says, it is civilization that has won.
