"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. "

Car bomb near Damascus kills at least six: activists- The Daily Star

BEIRUT/AMMAN: An ISIS car bomb Monday in a district south of Damascus killed at least six people and possibly many more, according to the radical Sunni movement and activists.
ISIS claimed responsibility for detonating the car laden with explosives near a Syrian army checkpoint, a news agency close to the militants said. It first gave no details but later said the blast killed or injured 48 people.
Lebanese group Hezbollah's Al Manar television reported the blast had occurred at a Syrian army checkpoint and put the death toll at eight.
The British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the death toll was expected to rise because of the number of people with serious injuries.
State media located the bombing on the outskirts of Sayeda Zeinab, home to Syria's holiest Shiite Muslim shrine. The area has already been hit by two bomb attacks this year.
