"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. "

Kurdish leader expects Raqqa to join federal system in Syria- Al-Masdar News

BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:58 P.M.) – The northern Syrian city of Raqqa is expected to join a decentralized system of government being set up by Syrian Kurdish groups and their allies once it is captured from ISIS, a leading Kurdish politician told Reuters on Monday.
The U.S.-backed and Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), are closing in on the ISIS de facto capital of Raqqa.
Saleh Muslim, the co-chair of the Syrian Kurdish PYD party, claimed it would be up to the people of Raqqa to decide their future once the city is purged of ISIS, but he thinks the city will join the “democratic federal” system, Reuters reported.
