There's now a Syrian newspaper called the Syria Times which appears daily. It's not a big one (just a few pages) and - as far as international news - it tells very little: you won't know what's going on in the world for sure. However it's a great newspaper to read and learn a bit more about how Syrians perceive the West - and how differently Middle Eastern politics are perceived locally. I can't say I always subscribed to the views expressed: sometimes I did, sometimes I didn't. All the time I learned a lot about people's thoughts and feeling in the Middle East. Definitely worth reading. There's also an on-line version: see the address below.
