So, I see that Dear Raed is back.  Do people think this is real or not?

Not sure if it's true or not, but it sounds real to me. He sounds like a real person, at least. From a fake, you'd expect the writer to be onesided. You'd expect sensational stories, and he could have written some.

But this person doesn't seem to be like that. He has his moodswings, today he likes the Americans, tomorrow he may not. Today he's happy, tomorrow he worries about something. And, he's not afraid to criticise all parties in the conflict, no matter what their country or religion.

That makes him sound like a real human, not a propaganda trick or something like that.

I agree, actually. I am also glad to see him writing again, as there was a long time when he was not posting and I was worried for him, whoever he is.
