200 young Catholics of the Syriac Patriarchate of Antioch spent the day talking with their country’s president, Bashar al-Assad, who came to visit their Catholic youth camp held at the Monastery of Saint Thomas in Saidnaya, near Damascus, on 4th July.

President al-Assad, is known throughout the Middle East for his fervent protection of the Christians who, alongside many of their Moslem countrymen, are still under fierce attack from Western-supported Wahhabi-Salafists belonging to ISIS, al-Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood. The president was presented with an ornate copy of Holy Scripture.
