“Escape from Syria”, a suggestive title, apparently as a warning or a description of what millions of people have begun to do as the revolution became the first civil war, then war by proxy between Saudis and Iranians, and finally the carnage in which Daesh imposes its law. In reality the admonition that this work wants to give to a distracted public, afraid and tired of Syria is exactly the opposite: woe to think that they can escape the reflection that the Syrian events impose.
