"And I have found both freedom and safety in my madness, the freedom of loneliness and the safety from being understood, for those who understand us enslave something in us. But let me not be too proud of my safety. Even a Thief in a jail is safe from another thief. "

Muslim clergymen in Damascus and countryside: Presidential vote a milestone in Syria's history- SANA

Damascus, (SANA) A massive meeting brought together Sunday a crowd of Islamic scholars from Damascus and its countryside who gathered to voice support for Syria's presidential elections slated for June 3, urging all citizens to go to the ballet boxes.

The meeting saw the participation of directors of Islamic education institutes and high schools, Quran teaching institutes, Islamic Sharia Education Faculty, the Higher al-Sham Institute for Islamic Sharia Sciences and Arabic Language at al-Othman Mosque in Damascus.

The participants called for developing a reformative progressive project with clear visions and goals based on "a real democratic shura (consultation) instead of the fake democracy" promoted by the West.

Sheikh Hussam-Eddin Farfour, the general supervisor of the Islamic al-Fath Complex, slammed the Western democracy "which has turned Sharon into a hero of peace."
