Syria Releases U.S. Citizen After Lebanese Mediation

Support SouthFront

Syrian authorities have released a U.S. citizen after a Lebanese mediation, Lebanese security officials told Reuters on July 26.

The security officials did not reveal the name of the released American, who was reportedly handed over to his family. However, they noted that he is not Austin Tice, a freelance journalist who went missing in Syrian in 2012.

“Lebanon has worked on mediating through General Abbas Ibrahim to release an American and he was handed over to his family already. The American is not Tice because it is not known where he is,” Reuters quoted one of the officials as saying.

Syrian sources identified the released American as Sam Goodwin. According to the sources, Goodwin was arrested in the northern Syrian city of Qamishli last May.

Telegraph’s Middle East correspondent Josie Ensor didn’t confirm the identity of the released American. However, she confirmed that he was captured in northeastern Syria last May. The journalist claimed that he was a tourist “trying to check off every country in the world.”

Last April, U.S. special envoy for hostage affairs Robert O’Brien said that Washington could improve its relations with the Damascus government and restore public communications, if the Syrian authorities release missing Tice.

While the fate of Tice remains unknown, the release of Goodwin could help de-escalate the tension between Damascus and Washington.

Copy this and use it every time you run into one of those PARASITIC HASBARAT-TROLLS:

Taken from UNZ Review, article, “Use of TERMITE by Louis Farrakahn was exactly right” – “Arthur Koestler, (a person of the Jewish Faith –My, Freespirit emphasis ) is quoting from Maurice Maeterlinck’s Life of the Termites in order to establish in his readers’ minds a salient political point. Not only does Koestler find the termite to be the most accurate metaphor for society’s decay, but his other book, The Thirteenth Tribe, debunks the claim by the white Caucasian Ashkenazi Jews that they are Jews at all! His careful, scholarly, and historically accurate 1976 study found that the white people we think of as Jews—the Netanyahus, the Jonathan Greenblatts, the Alan Dershowitzes and the rest of them—are imposters with no genetic connection to the holy land or holy people of the Bible; they are not even Semites! Koestler
 proves that their Caucasian tribal ancestors converted to Judaism sometime in the 8th century. So the charge of “anti-Semitism” constantly leveled at Blacks and their leaders has no actual meaning at all.” https://www.unz.com/article…

A Nation can survive its Fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive Treason from within. An Enemy at the Gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his Banner openly. But the Traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his Sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the Traitor appears not a Traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his Victims, and he wears their Face and their Arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the Soul of a Nation, he works Secretly and Unknown in the Night to Undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body Politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is Less to Fear…
