My Sister, Nicole Vienneau, Has Gone Missing in Syria|

I am originally Syrian but have not lived there since I was a kid. The bedouins do have a different lifestyle than the ordinary Syrians in that they are nomads. They live (or used to live) in tents in the desert and tend to sheep. Even though they may not be considered sophisticated by some Syrians, the impression is that they do not have criminal tendencies. They are just very simple people.
Because they live in the desert in harsh environment, they are known for helping each other and other people so that the favours could be returned when they are in need. I do not believe there are any tensions between them and the authorities. However, I think some of them might be a bit isolated. Someone previously commented that everyone in Syria has a satellite and gets aljazeera. Heshe was wrong..the bedouins don't! If Nicole was in trouble and they found her they probably would be helping her.

It is a girl who lived with the Syrian bedouins and loved them so much she kept returning to visit. I truly believe if Nicole was with them she would be safe.
