Request from a visitor to Damascus

My name is Antony Loewenstein and I'm an Australian about to hit Damascus. I'm keen to meet Syrian bloggers. Can you help?

My website is: antonyloewenstein.com

My email: antloew (at) gmail.com

Look forward to hearing from you.

Best wishes,


Thanks for this.
I'd love to meet you, Sasa.
Could you please email me with your details?
THanks so much.


Hey Lowenstein, do all Aussies a favour and head over to Gaza instead.


What makes you say that? Who are you? Why do you feel the need to be so disprespectful to Syria's visitors? I just hope that you - Anon - are not Syrian, because you are a spot on the country.

Your views, thankfully, do not represent the welcome that foreigners get in Syria. We should be grateful that they want to learn more, and experience Syria, instead of making rude comments like that.

Anon, why don't you go to Gaza?
