This man is my grandparent’s neighbour in Homs.
That bookcase behind him is filled with rare, ancient books including things he’s written (all worth 20+ million)..
He told my grandpa, “Everyone’s worried about their houses, I spent the past 16 months staring death in the eye to protect my bookcase”
Might I add, he’s always been in the opposition. He’s always hated the government. But he calls the FSA a bunch of “thieves, bandits and drug users who don’t give a shit about Syria”
