Below is a letter in response to this article by The Independent's Robert Fisk

I found myself obliged to write a response to Mr. Fisk’s article of 29 September 2013 titled “Khaled Mahjoub: The man with President Assad’s ear” due to the false accusation which put my family and me under direct threat from armed fanatic groups operating globally.

My response will be stated in facts and nothing but facts:

When you “look someone in the eyes” this is a signal of honesty and truth, and not interrogation skills as described by Mr. Fisk.

I met him with great pleasure and admiration, as one of the most objective and professional journalists in the region and I am still wondering why “me looking in his eyes” made him nervous.

The most dangerous part of his article was his false conclusion that I met the French-Algerian terrorist to find out about what he told him during their closed meeting. He made it worse by accusing that I am reporting this meeting to the President.

Needless to say, the President of Syria does not need a civil activist like me to assist him. Syria, despite continuous attempts for three years to become a failing state, it is still a country with operating institutions.

He framed me as a dangerous man and interrogator, whereas I am a civil society activist. Pointing at me in this negative way made me a potential target to the fundamental groups, like the one with whom the French-Algerian terrorist was associated.

Well, Mr Fisk, I met the French-Algerian person on December 7, 2012 – a few days after you met him - during an interview with the BBC, which you will find in the link below and not as an interrogator.

Please watch the proof:

Unfortunately, I find myself obliged to hold Mr Fisk personally, and The Independent, responsible for putting my family and me in danger of being targets for any fanatic group, in addition to all kind of damages and risks.

As a civil activist and socio-economic developer, I have been working in parallel on two objectives.

The first: Reconciliation:

The second: empowering the middle-class society with zero-carbon footprint development programs. So please watch my accomplishments and judge me from the outcome of my work and not from illusionary conclusions.

Please watch both links:

Conclusion: I work for the enlargement of the Syrian secular middle-class society by stopping the bloodshed with the power of reconciliation and low-carbon green socio-economical development. Leading to a better tomorrow for all Syrians.

It is also important note the following points:

Syrian Sufism:

The hard examples of the current living Syrian Soufizem – that Mr Fisk is denying - are the forgiveness of the Grand Mufti and the Minister of Reconciliation to the killers of their sons.

2000 years ago from Straight Street in Damascus, Saint Paul sent his first letter to spread the loving doctrine of Christianity.

Almost four trillion dollars plus hundreds of thousands of Americans, Iraqis, Afghans, British and others have been killed, injured mentally and physically, plus millions of refugees and still the conflict continues, with no one winning.

The reason of this continuous dilemma is the missing engine of (Syrian Soufizem ideology vs. the Salafi Wahabi Jihadi ideology).

Yes the Syrian Islamic Soufizem is the curing ideology engine, empowering it will save many citizens of the world from the fast growing self powered sleeping cells like the one of Boston.

Today’s terror attack will need no more than an ideology and kitchen tools, proof can be seen below:

Finally, let's focus on what will make a safer today and a better tomorrow for all.

Reserving all my rights,

Khaled Mahjoub
