Syrians' suffering fails to strike a chord in Europe

Syrian civil defence volunteers, known as the White Helmets, rescue a boy from the rubble following an attack on the Bab al-Nairab neighbourhood of Aleppo on November 24, 2016As the bombs rain down on the besieged city of Aleppo the scenes of suffering are horrific, yet the Syrian war fails to move people to protest in the way that the US intervention in Iraq or the siege of Sarajevo did. In Paris’ traditional place of protest, Place de la Republique, demonstrators spelled out “Free Syria” in candles last Friday as forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad increased their control of rebel-held areas of Aleppo. This is a cause which people should rally around,” said one of the participants, Ahmad Darkazanli, who originally comes from Aleppo but has lived in France for half a century.
