"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. "

Death of Druze leader reported in Syria blast- Al-Jazeera

A car bomb blast has killed a Druze leader among others and injured dozens more in southwestern Syria, according to a monitoring group.
Friday's explosion on the outskirts of Suweida killed Sheikh Wahid al-Balous, who opposed both the Syrian government and armed groups fighting against it, the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.
A separate blast that occurred around the same time in Suweida killed and wounded dozens of people, the Syrian Observatory said.
"Sheikh Wahid al-Balous was killed in a car-bomb attack as he was driving on the outskirts of Suweida city," Rami Abdelrahman, head of the Syrian Observatory, said.
He said a second car bomb struck near the hospital in the Dahr al-Jabal neighbourhood where the wounded were being taken.
