As I had a look on breaking news on French papers, they were all focused on IS and , moreover, they emitted doubts about the enquiry on chemicals in Ghouta and Douma.
As a French citizen and blogger, I am ashamed of it.
Meanwhile, Damascus inhabitants are seeking to leave the town, because, precisely, of these attacks.

Putin and Assad paved the way to a battle in Damascus, the Capital, and my co-citizens ignore it.
In fact, are they concerned by it? I really don’t know.
Syrian kids, who lives these bombings by Assad and Putin , feel themselves as “invisible”.
Thanks to Marc Nelson, who paint them regularly, they are not.
And, myself, I write these few lines to be their voice.
My first intention was to name this post “Save Syrian Children”.
But I feel so ashamed by these news given by the dailies of my homeland that I write this, generally, to support the Syrian Revolution.
I want to speak out and say that my co- citizens read propaganda, and are not informed of the reality of Syria.
Since months and months , Ghouta and Douma are under attack; Ghouta have been besieged since 2013.
The Islamic State is not all. Syrian kids are more important, and I am proud that the White Helmets gave them a bit of distraction , in the midst of war.
How many of my co-citizens know the Free Syrian Flag? It is the first photo.
Thanks to organizations such as the UNICEF, these kids live with a little of dignity in the middle of the ruins.
Lebanon recently restricted its right to asylum to Syrians. We are aware of this fact thanks to a Human Rights Watch Report. https://www.hrw.org/sites/default/files/report_pdf/lebanon0418_web.pdf
Until now, Lebanon was a shelter to Syrians; now, it is no more.
Even if, in the West, there are sometimes terrorist attacks by returnees of the IS, we cannot be focused only on this fact.
These “invisible”, Syrian children, live in a country where schools were bombed, and in towns bombed by the alliance Assad/Putin/ Rouhani.
Can we ignore this?
If it were OUR children, we would create a scandal!
So, I raise my voice for Syrian kids, and to support the Syrian Revolution, which resisted to Assad , the bloody lion .
If one of my co-citizen read this post, in fact, he will learn that there were TRULY chemicals in Syria, launched by Russia airplanes; that kids live amidst the war, without schools.
French President Macron signed the Safe Schools Declaration, which forbids to bomb schools; the UK signed, too.
Now, the battle is for Damascus, the Capital.
I hope it will not be A Road to Damascus, as in the Scriptures.
