Ketan Gajria writes:

The Canon company’s Middle East division recently sponsored a photography competition entitled “Celebrate My City” which was open to all photographer residing in the Middle East. Participants were asked to upload one photo each for the country that he or she resides in with the theme that the picture expresses something special about that country. I submitted my photo, “The Aleppo Souq,” which was previously used on Syria Comment in a post last year. As it turned out, the photo won first prize for the Syria bracket!

that is a good article,but as I said before,it is up to Arab American to change American policy,,and oppose the Israeli lobby,by increasing our number,this will take 20-30 years,but once our number get high we will ellect senators,and congressmen who sympathize with us.
