Fr. Daniel Maes, o.praem. wants to share with us his firsthand experience of the war in Syria. This exclusive interview for HM Television was recorded in Qara, Syria by the monks of the Mar Yakub Monastery.
In this program of “In the Footsteps of the Nazarene," Fr. Daniel explains how the Syrian war began, and the intense religious persecution that was unleashed. Fr. Daniel is very well aware of the political situation. He tells us his opinion about the presence of the Russian army in Syria, and insists upon the positive role played by Assad's army, which always protected the civilians. His testimony can open our eyes to the manipulations of the mass media and the lies that have been spread by the media about the war in Syria.
