Saving Syria Planet

Syria Planet, the feed for every Syrian blog on the internet, is being taken down in one week.

A lack of resources is being blamed. But this can't happen. Syria Planet has held the Syria blogosphere together since the days when there were just a handful of blogs. Taking it down would destroy the Syrian blogosphere's public space.

And re-creating it would take a very long time. No-one - other than SyPlanet - has a decent list of every Syrian blog.

Let's save Syria Planet.

I would be happy to host this resource on my server for free. Can you please send me the contact information for those who administer it?

Thanks Sasa for this post. It would be a shame to lose such a great site.

Like Yaman I also couldn't find contact info of the administrators.

I got some experience with drupal and can help out. email me at

safahat_chamiyeh at yahoo dot com dot au


Yazan should have an idea about whom to contact.

يعني ازا ما انحجب من الحكومة ، بتحجبو انتو؟

روؤو شوي لا تسكرو


It would be a shame if Syrian Planet shuts down. For those who have not figured it out Ayman Hourieh, a fellow Ladkani I believe, is the administrator. His technical blog address is: http://aymanh.com/syria-planet
