Dear Alexander,

You are always welcome in Syria.

According to Kuwait Times, I regret the unprofessionality and irresopnsibility of some mass media in Gulf region. It is obvious that such news has no relevence to reality and can not be said either by me or by any other Syrian officials. Needless to say that no other mass media has paid attention to such false statements that might pup up every now and then .

All the best,

Bouthaina Shaaban

Dr. Bouthaina,

I was a real pleasure meeting you last week, thank you again for hosting us in Damascus and for letting me travel to Daraa.

As I’m sure you’ve seen, there are some comments attributed to you in the Kuwait Times today that I wanted to ask you about. Is this true? Could you expand a little on what it is you have?


Kuwait Times:

Meanwhile, the Syrian President's advisor Buthaina Shaaban has allegedly threatened to expose sex tapes involving rulers from Gulf countries. Shaaban briefed a delegation from the Syrian community residing in region after a meeting was held with Bashar Al-Asad. The advisor reportedly said, "officials from Gulf countries will be shown what 'trump' cards we have after we release their sex tapes to internet websites.”

Mr. Rami Rustum Esquire
The authenticity, I was very gentle and the contents of the feelings of a sincere love of the homeland and driven to seek his service. The joy was great to meet you here in Syria and trust you and your precious our community in the United States.
We may actually be proud of the children of our country from people like you who are still failing hearts of love and longing to their home country despite the distance and concerns in the Diaspora.
I am confident that our country will emerge from this crisis stronger than before thanks to the efforts of the loyal sons of sons like you, whether at home or observing a pure scientific Zamathm honorable abroad.
Thank you for your interest and sincerity I wish you success, God willing.

HE Dr. Shaaban respectable
Greetings,
Here the most important points discussed in the meeting with the Turkish ambassador on Sunday, July 3, 2011
First, Refugees was emphasized by us as a problematic issue it is useful to make Ankara's efforts to Hlhaltha. He said: The Turkish government has not given refugee status of the Syrians "refugee" to now to cut the road to international interventions, but they will provide aid to them as long as they are. He believes that a number of them will soon return to their country because of the hostile attitude of the state in Syria. It was clear that "Turkey does not want to internationalize the issue of Syrian citizens who are on the Turkish territory in order not to disturb Damascus," but added that this crisis is "the crisis number one" for Turkey today is believed to be solved will not be easy in the near future.
As was addressed by the smuggling of weapons. He said: that weapons smuggling because of a request from inside Syria. The proposal was the possibility of cooperation to prevent the smuggling of arms and Ankara to make additional efforts in this context. He also admitted that the weapons actually come to Syria through Turkish territory, but without the consent of the Turkish government. Effort in this area should be bilateral or internal pressure Turkey to control the border without the full cooperation of the Syrian border security agencies.
Second, the "Muslim Brotherhood": we confirmed the importance of not insisting on Turkey to open a dialogue with the Syrian "brothers" because the Syrians are very sensitive. He said: For Turkey, it believes that a dialogue with a "Brotherhood" will strengthen the Islamic moderation, otherwise the Islamist underground will live and work secretly against Syria. Turkey does not want to strengthen the organization of the brothers, but you want to adjust their activities inside and outside Syria, and brought into the national dialogue to serve Syrian interests.
Third, the Turkish model: we should not insist on the Turkish government the "Turkish model" because the Syrians want their own model. It was also emphasized by us of the need not to make public statements explain in Syria as a superstructure.
The visit of Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu:
He suggested to the Minister Davutoglu to Damascus to come before the meeting of the consultative dialogue. There is a difficulty because Erdogan's government needs to adopt and become a government statement to the Government of normal and not a caretaker.
Mostly Turkish minister will come to Damascus after the consultative meeting, within the limits of any mid-month.
Turkish Ambassador intends to arrange a dinner meeting at his house for officials, opponents and independent, which is proposed to include: Dr. Shaaban, Michel Kilo, Hussein Awdat, Louay Hussein, Riad Seif, Sami Moubayed, Ibrahim Hamidi.
Writing in the Turkish press:
Enthusiasm for the idea to write Sami in Turkish press, to express the Syrian position, and uncle of the need to maintain strategic Syrian-Turkish relations without preconditions, but the Turkish language, where articles will be translated by the Turkish Embassy in Damascus.

Dr. Shaaban,

Good morning,

My name is Angela Fahdi holder of a diploma in civil engineering of Aleppo where I taught during 15 years at the Faculty of civil engineering of Aleppo, at present I work at the Faculty of the higher education and postdoctorales at the University of Montreal in the sector of the scholarship where I manage scholarships for the international and Canadian students who are registered on a program of master's degree or Ph. D. at the University of Montreal. I am married to Wahid Jean Mardenli awarded a diploma by the Faculty of Medicine of Aleppo and holder of Ph. D. in paediatrics from France and student at the University of Montreal. Wahid is an only son his father died for a long time and he has a religious sister Leila Mardenli who was rewarded by the first Lady Asmaa Alassad on the occasion of the Mother's Day two years ago, because Leila takes care of the orphanage of the Roman Catholic Church in Aleppo for years.

Since January 19th, 2011 we live a nightmare, I do not have any news of my husband Wahid, he was arrested in Aleppo then transferred in Damascus with 16 doctors. There is a few days somebody calls me to announce that all other doctors are freed except Wahid and if I want that he is freed released I have to pay!!!!

I know nobody whom I can address, there is a big mistake (we live in Canada since 2007), I ask you Dr Shaba to intervene to remove the injustice that we undergo and to end our nightmare.

Respectful regards from Montreal.

Dear Bob,

Thank you so much for your kind and warm message which I relayed to H. E the President. I do feel proud to be your friend and I know how much the president enjoys your company and appreciates your friendship. Your message came at a time that Syria is getting out of the tunnel. HE the president will address the Syrian People tomorrow and today millions of Syrians went out on the streets in most towns to say: NO to sectarianism, and YES to Syria, but during these difficult days we were able to discover our true and lasting friends and allow me to say you are top on the list.

I hope that you and your family will visit us in the near future and I shall let you know when Ronnie Kasrils will be here as I would love both of you to meet.
My very best wishes to Elaine, Shane and Tess with my warm regards to you,

Importance: High



March 25, 2011

Dear Dr. Bouthaina,
I have been very moved by the time I spent with you and with President Assad.
I take the many insights from our conversations and combine them with first hand perspective I gained from my time spent at Umayyad mosque, the souk, the coffee shops and even the hammam. I leave Syria with a profound sense of connection and a desire to share my understanding with influential friends in the United States and around the world.
The Syria that I spent last week in does not resemble the sensationalist images that are endlessly played and replayed by the international media. Of course there are demonstrations and things that need to be changed, but is the relevant story that thousands of people are demonstrating? Or is it that in a country of approximately 21 million people that less than 1 out of 1000 are participating? The scintillating picture for TV is the mob scene, but the informed perspective is the statistic.
My first hand understanding, without the distorting filters of the media or the haze of distance, compels me to speak out about what I have seen and heard and especially how different my experience has been from the images I have seen on TV.
I feel privileged to consider you and President Assad as friends. As friends, we all find ourselves in a moment of history that requires people of real commitment to stand up and speak loudly in support of constructive change and engagement. History teaches that to be ahead of the curve is to lead the change. I am confident that the change will come in as thoughtful and as prompt a manner as the complex situation allows.
What is important now is for committed friends to be vocal in their support of President Assad’s leadership. After all, real friends stand up and speak the truth when it matters most. I will take my first hand understanding into the world and argue loudly and convincingly that President Assad, far from being the problem, is actually the most critical part of the solution.
Syria’s moment of inspiration and quantum leap forward is at hand. Being ahead of the curve is critical. I stand ready to help in any way, at any time, and in any place.

With respect, your friend,
Bobby Sager

P.S. Dearest Dr. Bouthaina, Please feel free to share this note with President Assad if you feel it is appropriate. If at any time you want to talk to me directly, my personal mobile is +1 857-544-3671.

Been detected recently about the balance of President Bashar al-Assad found that a score close to 24 million heart Syrian Bashar al-Assad love spring, and was also detected that it is impossible to freeze this balance because it is not in Switzerland, it is in the hearts of the Syrians.
Love that cherished. Syrian President Bashar al-Assad is the love has no limits, love can not be shaken because it is fixed and rooted in the hearts of the Syrians, because they stem from the heart of originality displayed by the people, because Mr. President in the eyes of the Syrians is the hope, and in their hearts, please, and on the their lips prayer, and the pride and their front Alhmokh.
This balance can not win no matter how it plots Vmahbh Syrians to Mr. President a stronger and larger than that expect to receive their own hatred.
24 million center, unified, coherent, pulsing with love, loyalty, and determination of men, this is the balance Nebaha by the United, and we are every day more than willing to pay this balance forward to bypass all the indicators and all measures to keep the title that we carry in our hearts and our souls and our blood is the title of one written blood (Mnhpk).

Dear Dr. Radi:
Thank you for your email.
I wish you too a happy Adha.

I would like also to share with you the attached letter and see what you think of such a project.
I already told them to keep their contact exclusively with Damascus University as it is the party concerned with such issue.
Could you please let me know of your opinion about such a project, especially given the fact that the Catalonian Region in Spain has some separatist aspirations.
Best Wishes,
Dr. Bouthaina Shaaban
Political and media advisor at the Syrian Presidency

Dear Emma,
Thank you for your email regarding the appeal to ban (FGM). I highly commend your efforts with all the other participants to get to worldwide ban on such a phenomenon which should not take place anywhere in the world in the 21st century.
However such an issue is does not exist in our country. And therefore I think it would be more effective if you have the votes of those who are most affected by this practice.
I wish you all success in such an honest undertaking.
Best Regards,

Dr. Bouthaina Shaaban

Your Excellency dear Ambassador and honourable lady Dr Shaaban,

Assalam o Aleukum.
Thank you for your beautiful reply. I knew that I could rely on you and the last Arab country in this historic endeavour.
Given the shortness of the time (we leave London Casablanca Doha on September 18th, and these three columns joined by big contingents from Turkey Jordan and Lebanon hope to sail from Latakia aboard the Mavi Marmara between October 5-7th) can I respectfully request that you task officials in Damascus and and Latakia to make contact with my comrades in advance of your arrival back to Syria?
I remind you they are Kevin Ovenden kevin.ovenden@gmail.com and Dr Zaher Birawi zkb2002@hotmail.com
This would be very helpful to us.
I hope you are enjoying your travels and have a safe journey back to Damascus.
With all my good wishes,
Yours fraternally
George Galloway
VivaPalestinaArabia







Your Excellency:



RAMADAN KARIM!



As you will remember, I had previously mentioned to you that I am sponsoring the costs of researching and printing a report on the Golan Heights to be done by ADC of Washington DC (American-Arab Antidiscrimination Committee) and sent you on April 19th a copy of their preliminary proposal.



The report will be sent to:



· White House

· State Department

· Congress

· U.S. and International media, Arab-American media

· Church groups and Peace and Justice Organizations and Activists

· Library of Congress/Congressional Research Service

· Middle East Studies Departments at Universities

· ADC Members and Chapters



and posted on the ADC website.



Now they have sent their final draft, enclosed please find same for your perusal. I realize that you personally have very limited spare time, but perhaps you could have one of your expert staff take a careful look and let me know soonest (by latest August 20th as they will start publication on August 25th) if any changes should be made.



I look forward to hearing from you and remain



With best personal regards

Dear George
Thank you very much for your email which I was delighted to receive. God bless your amazing efforts and I will be honored to be part and parcel of it and to be the catalyst for my country too. I am now abroad for about 10 days and expected to be back in Syria on August 24. If we can touch base then and get further details about what is really required and from whom in more details you will find me happy to put my time and energy to help with this most important cause of the Twenty Firtst Century. I hope you are following my writings in Counter Punch. Take care and God bless you and your efforts.
As ever

Dear Mr. Hamdan,

Thank you for your email.

With regard to your request for hosting one of your summits in Syria, the normal procedure would be for your organization to kindly write to the Syrian embassy in Washington, which in turn would inform the Syrian Foreign Ministry to consider your request.

We appreciate your interest in having such summits in Syria and would love to see that happen.

We also referred your letter to the office of the first lady regarding the mentioned award.

Best wishes

Bouthaina Shaaban

Your Excellency Minister Walid al Muallem

I am writing to brief you on the forthcoming visit to Damascus (5- 9 January 2009) of an American Delegation from the Center of the Study of the Presidency under the auspices of the British Syrian Society . The objectives of this visit are primarily focused on initiating a dialogue with the US so as to foster warmer relations and to demonstrate a Syrian commitment to the reform programme lead by H.E. President Bashar al Assad. These objectives also aim to identify collaborative opportunitive in the Health, Education and Science sectors in Syria.

There will be three working groups (WGs) each will be Co Chaired by a Syrian and an American member of the two delegations. These WGs will deal separately with Scientific, Healthcare and Education issues.

In my capacity as a healthcare professional I identified a few topics for discussion for the Healthcare Working Group that could include: The Healthcare System; private and public; accreditation and affiliation; continuous proficiency development CPD and continuous medical education CME; nursing and technical revamp, students and staff exchange programme. It is also important to focus on human resources and infrastructure. We will also raise awareness of the effects of the embargo and high politics on all of the above. The proposals on Education and Science are forthcoming.

The programme (attached) includes three meetings of these WGs (also attached) and three plenary sessions for general discussion and in the final plenary session we will discuss the findings of the WGs in order to reach a common ground for recommendations.

I hope the information provided will be of help to you and I will endeavour to up-date you with any progress.

With my kindest regards

FAWAZ AKHRAS

PS. Sahar and I would like to take this opportunity to offer you and your family our warmest wishes for a healthy, happy and prosperous New Year full of joy and successes.

Dear Bouthaina,



I have heard from Hrair Balian, President Carter's representative, and
Nabil Kuzbari regarding their meetings with you. I know you are
traveling to Great Britain as well as Vienna over the next week, so I
know that, as usual, you are very busy.



Hrair told me that President Bashar and President Carter's walk along a
small segment of the Syrian Cultural Walking Trail (SCWT) in Maalula
should be coordinated through the Ministry of Tourism. When a member of
our team contacted the Ministry, it had no knowledge about the visit by
President Carter or the walk. We will try to inform them of everything
that we know of to this point. As we discussed in our last meeting
together on October 20th, we have been less than satisfied with the
assistance of the Ministry of Tourism, although we consider it to be a
friendly and necessary partner in all of this. As I told you, the
Ministry has not even replied to our e-mails or helped us arrange our
past visits to begin to establish the SCWT. If this lack of help
continues in this way, I do not think the December event will be a
success for anyone. However, I have every hope that the Ministry of
Tourism will be more forthcoming, cooperative, and efficient in helping
us make the most of this unique and important event. Anything your
office can do to ensure this would be very much appreciated.



We really, really NEED as soon as possible your comments/action
regarding the following questions, because there is still ambiguity
surrounding some very important details about the planned walk:



1) We need confirmation that the short walk of the two presidents
will, indeed, occur in Maalula.

2) We need confirmation that this walk will, as requested by
President Carter, occur on the morning of Sunday, December 14; if this
can not happen at this time and another time has been chosen by
President Bashar, we need to know as soon as possible in order to
adequately plan other events associated with the walk.

3) We need to know whether or not we can officially invite Prince
al-Waleed bin Talal to the event (he has given indication that he would
like to come, but he would have to be invited). I believe Nabil Kuzbari
will be handing you a list of our desired invitees to the walk and
associated events for your approval (I will also send you an e-mail of
the list).

4) We need to know what the role of the Ministry of Tourism is in
all of this since we only received this information second-hand through
President Carter's representative. Does the Ministry have the authority
to authorize events we are planning as well as invited guests?

5) How do we coordinate regional and global media for this event?
Through your office or the Ministry of Tourism?

6) We are checking with President Carter if he could make a brief
appearance at the dinner Nabil Kuzbari would like to host on the night
of the 13th or 14th associated with the walk. If President Carter can
make a brief appearance, would President Bashar also like to do so?

7) Finally, we need permission to organize a small youth walk
(about 20-30 young adults/children ranging from 16-25 years old or so).
The participants would gather at Deir Mar Musa and be led by Father
Frans Vanderlugt, who, as you probably know, runs a center at Al Ard and
has led numerous such walks for kids for years; indeed, Fares Kallas
told us he went on one of Father Frans' walks, and he is also a good
friend of Yasser Hourieh. In the short amount of time between now and
December 14, Father Frans is the only one who has the knowledge and
infrastructure in place to organize this walk quickly. The participants
will probably go by bus to Yabrud to begin a day long, 10-12 mile walk
to Maalula on December 13th, arriving in Maalula on the 14th in time to
greet the two presidents at Mar Sarkis and walk with the two presidents
down the siq in the canyon toward the town. The SCWT is in many ways
about the youth; they are our future, so this would be very appropriate
for this event. BUT, we need permission from you or some relevant
authority to do this. By the way, my 18-year old son, Michael, will
most likely be going on this walk and meet me at Maalula, and as he has
done in the past, also say hello to President Bashar, who asked about
Michael when we met on October 19.



Bouthaina, WE REALLY NEED A NOTE FROM YOU TO THE MINISTRY OF TOURISM
STRONGLY URGING THEIR COOPERATION AND HAVING AUTHORIZATION TO PLAN THIS
EVENT ACCORDINGLY. WE REALLY NEED OUR TEAM ON THE GROUND LED BY MR.
DANIEL ADAMSON AND OSAMA AL-NOURI TO HAVE THE FREEDOM TO PLAN THIS EVENT
AND MAKE DECISIONS AND NOT WAIT FOR PERMISSION FOR EVERY LITTLE THING
FROM THE MINISTRY OF TOURISM. The Ministry of Tourism is our friend,
but they have been so slow to respond, react, and engage in everything
we have done to this point that we do not have a lot of confidence.



Thank you, Bouthaina, for your time and attention to this. I would
very, very much appreciate a response to this e-mail.



Take care and be well,



Your friend,



David



P.S. I am copying Mr. Tyler Norris, the Executive Director of our
organization with this e-mail. You met with him on one of our trips to
Damascus, and I believe his son played with your child on one occasion,
and I am copying Mr. Daniel Adamson, our organization's Director of Path
Development and our lead on the ground for this event-he is in Beirut.

about the youth; they are our future, so this would be very appropriate
for this event. BUT, we need permission from you or some relevant
authority to do this. By the way, my 18-year old son, Michael, will
most likely be going on this walk and meet me at Maalula, and as he has
done in the past, also say hello to President Bashar, who asked about
Michael when we met on October 19.



Bouthaina, WE REALLY NEED A NOTE FROM YOU TO THE MINISTRY OF TOURISM
STRONGLY URGING THEIR COOPERATION AND HAVING AUTHORIZATION TO PLAN THIS
EVENT ACCORDINGLY. WE REALLY NEED OUR TEAM ON THE GROUND LED BY MR.
DANIEL ADAMSON AND OSAMA AL-NOURI TO HAVE THE FREEDOM TO PLAN THIS EVENT
AND MAKE DECISIONS AND NOT WAIT FOR PERMISSION FOR EVERY LITTLE THING
FROM THE MINISTRY OF TOURISM. The Ministry of Tourism is our friend,
but they have been so slow to respond, react, and engage in everything
we have done to this point that we do not have a lot of confidence.



Thank you, Bouthaina, for your time and attention to this. I would
very, very much appreciate a response to this e-mail.



Take care and be well,



Your friend,



David



P.S. I am copying Mr. Tyler Norris, the Executive Director of our
organization with this e-mail. You met with him on one of our trips to
Damascus, and I believe his son played with your child on one occasion,
and I am copying Mr. Daniel Adamson, our organization's Director of Path
Development and our lead on the ground for this event-he is in Beirut.

Date: November 13, 2008

HIGH PRIORITY – CONFIDENTIAL

Your Excellency,

I trust this letter finds you and your family well. It was a delight to see you again this summer when there with my family.

Thanks to the support which we have received from you and your Ministry, and from the President of Syria His Excellency Bashar al-Assad -- we are able to report strong progress in developing the Syrian Cultural Walking Trail. You have likely reviewed our detailed report from our combined-staff’s field work in September.

At a private meeting on October 19, 2008 between Dr. David Lesch and President Bashar Al Assad -- President Al Assad has confirmed with President Jimmy Carter, that they will inaugurate the Syrian Cultural Walking Trail by walking together into the historic town of Maalula. This event has now been scheduled to take place on the morning of December 14th 2008. A dinner for special guests is to be held the evening of Dec 14 (or on the 13th to provide for the President’s prospective attendance) the at the Four Seasons -- generously hosted by our mutual friend, Mr. Nabil Kuzbari.

Attached are important documents related to this inaugural event – promoting Syria’s legacy of harmony as an example to the world.

- Letter to the HE the Minister

- Event overview

- DRAFT International invite list

- DRAFT Syrian invite list

- A media plan will be forthcoming

We write you to assure you are well-informed of this opportunity, and per the direction of the President’s office, to request the active assistance of the Ministry of Tourism in making this a complete success. As ever, we are grateful for your counsel and leadership.

Kind regards,

Tyler Norris

Dear Dr. Bouthaina,



As always, it was a great pleasure to visit with you in Damascus. I am
so very pleased that you are in your new position. It bodes well for
President Bashar and the country as a whole.



Regarding President Carter's visit in December, you will soon receive an
e-mail from a member of President Carter's team, Hrair Balian, with whom
I just spoke. He will then follow up with a phone call to you to begin
to plan the visit. It looks to be a truly wonderful event, but I will
let Hrair talk to you about it.



I also wish you the best of luck in finding some funding for the
PR/communication firm we spoke about so that we can have the adequate
mechanism to prepare coverage for the event in December, but also to
improve the US-Syrian relationship at a crucial time before the next
administration comes into office, to improve the image of Syria and
President Bashar in the United States, and help with other forms of
cooperation. As I mentioned, this group's fee is US $150,000 per month.
Although it envisions at least a two year relationship, it can do a
6-month contract to be paid in two segments: US $450,000 upon the
signing of a contract, and then another $450,000 half way through the
six months. So in an immediate sense, only $450,000 is needed up front.
It can do six-month contracts after that as well based on satisfactory
results. Hopefully something can be done over the next couple of weeks
to activate the process. This is all part of the Syrian Cultural
Walking Trail's attempts to provide the proper coverage for the December
event.



Take care, and I look forward to seeing you again in December. I will
definitely be attending the event.



Best,



David
