Great Syrians

After legendary Syrian movie producer Moustapha Akkad tragically lost his life in the Amman bombings, one Syria News Wire reader suggested we pay tribute to other great Syrians while they're still alive.

Here, you can mention all of the great Syrians, or people of Syrian origin, around the world. In the arts, entertainment, sport, music...

Just click on the comments link...

One great Syrian is Syria,s ambasador DR Mustapha and that is his web sihttp://imad_moustapha.blogs.com/my_weblog/te

Ok.. hmm a famous Syrian of an earlier period is Queen Zenobia of Palmyra (3d century AD), who led a series of military campaigns against the Romans in order to reopen trade routes!

That's all i can think of!
