Kassem Eid, who survived the August 2013 chemical gas attack in Syria where more than 1400 people were killed, shares his horrrible experience after the attack, what he calls “judgement day”. He was declared died and thrown in with other bodies but friends noticed his movement and he was saved. In this video Kassem Eid expresses his gratitude to President Trump for his missile strike of a Syrian airbase and he explains what it is that Syrians really want.
“I cried out of joy. I thanked God. I don’t know. I was overwhelmed. We’ve been asking for protection. We’ve been asking for consequences for more than six years I cried out of joy. I thanked god. I don’t know. I was overwhelmed. We’ve been asking for protection. We’ve been asking for consequences for more than six years and today for the first time it happened, for the very first time we see Assad held accountable just for once, held accountable for his crimes against humanity. I was overwhelmed. I felt grateful for President Trump. I felt grateful for the United States.”
“With all due respect, with all due respect, I didn’t see each and every person who was demonstrating after the travel ban. I didn’t see you three days ago when people were gassed to death, when civilians were gassed to death. I didn’t see you in 2013 when 1,400 people were gassed to death. I didn’t see you raising your voice against President Obama’s inaction in Syria that led us refugees, that made us refugees get kicked out of Syria. If you really care about refugees, if you really care about helping us, please, help us stay in our in our country. We don’t want to come to the United States, we want to stay in our country. This is hypocrisy If you really care help us stay in our country We don’t want to become refugees want to stay in our country. Help us establish safe zones. Help us stay safe in our country and if you just give me a few seconds just to tell President Trump once again, please sir, what you did was amazing. What you did was a powerful message of hope for a lot of people inside and outside of Syria, please don’t stop on this, please help Syrians stay in their country, please establish safe zones, please take out Assads air forces so they won’t be able to commit more atrocities using traditional weapons. 500,000 people were killed with traditional weapons. Just so people can know what we have suffered the last 6 years.
