Oz-Rita found this interesting interview, which she translated what she felt was the most interesting segments.
Below are her editorial notes on this clip:
Bassam Tahhan is a professor of Arabic literature, French sociologist and geopolitics of Syrian origin (Christian).
He taught courses in the most prestigious academic institutions in France and the world and is still teaching at the Henry IV, one of the most prestigious Lycées in Paris.
In this interview given to TV Liberté which will shock he gives his view of the situation in Syria.
Professor Bassam Tahhan used to be a high profile/high output commentator on French Media until he started criticising the Foreign Policy, specifically with regard to Syria. He is now basically shunned by all main TV stations and TVL is rather courageous broadcasting his views. In another part of this interview (not translated) he says that the TV station FRANCE 24 has even spelled it out for him: we will not receive you again.
