\nA barrel which is fashioned by hammering 2 strips of metal together around a mandrel. They were expensive when they were in vogue 125 years ago but they are weak and unwanted now.
Answer . Damascus is a method of making laminated barrels. A series of wires is braided and hammer-welded to create a distinctive pattern of loops and swirls. Well-made Damascus barrels were the best available before modern steel and many well-maintained 100-year-old Damascus guns are still bein…g used. On the other hand if the gun has not been properly cared for, hidden rust pockets may have compromised the barrels and cause a dramatic failure. If you are tempted to fire an old shotgun, have it inspected by a qualified gunsmith first. ( Full Answer )

Don't take this as gospel on this subject, but this is my understanding. Damascus is a name of steel, made originally in (unexpectedly) a city named Damascus. Damascus steel was supposedly created by a combination of folding two different types of steel together, and folding the two steels over a…nd over again, creating many layers that combined the properties of the two used steels. This steel was supposedly the strongest steel ever known; it was legendary. The secret was the supposed combination of the iron and carbon which created small tubes of reinforced carbon bonded with the ferrous iron, creating exceptionally tough steel in which the long tubes would be able to bend without breaking, creating exceptionally strong (and therefore very sharp and hard) steel but without sacrificing the flexibility of the weapon so it was not brittle. The technique of creating Damascus steel has been lost for centuries; I know that sound like a load of crap, but we seriously have no idea what happened to the creation technique. People may claim that we now have found a way to "recreate" damascus steel, but it's merely an imitation. We are guessing how and why the steel was both so strong and flexible, and that's kinda where we're at. A damascus gun is a gun which has parts made of damascus, most frequently the barrel. It is also an uncommon slang term; a "damascus" gun is sometimes used as a way to describe a gun which is match-grade or just functions extraordinarily well. It could also be used to describe a piece which has been heavily modified to improve on its quality. ( Full Answer )
Damascus is the capital city of Syria. History of Damascus datesback to 965 BC when Ezron the King of Aram-Zobah conqueredDamascus. However, carbon dating has place the oldest artifacts inthe area to around 6300 BC.
A Damascus blade is actually a historical creation from about 2000 years ago. The city, Damascus, was the birthplace of this type of steel. It is particularly known for the water-marked pattern and the extraordinary toughness. Under a microscope, there are tiny ridges, or saw-teeth, which are formed… by forging in a coal fire. The flexibility of the knife allows it to cut even when it feels dull to the touch. ( Full Answer )
That it is the oldest capital on Earth . Although Antioch is currently part of Turkey, Antioch wasconsidered part of Syria, which is the city that Christianitystarted in. the first alphabet
22.5 million people live there, it seems safe for them. Certainly no more dangerous than many places. Not Currently(2012), but I was there a couple years ago and everything seemed fine. However they are crazy drivers so prepare yourself for that if you are going.

6000 years EDIT: This is incorrect. Syria has been called Syria since 10,000 B.C. Syria used to be larger than it currently is, but it divided into multiple countries. Source: I am Syrian.
No, Syria is an independent country. Turkey is the country that boarders Syria from the north.
I might be way off here but I guess you are talking about in relation to Damascus Steel? This is a form of steel made in Persia and north India and traded westwards. It was most often bought by Europeans in Damascus in modern day Syria so the name comes from there. Damascus Brass by extension wou…ld be super pure strong brass from Damascus. In short there isn't such a thing as "Damascus brass" in the same way as Steel. However Brass objects made in such a way as to mimic the "watered" appearance of Damascus Steel might be named as such or indeed anything made in Syria of brass could be called such. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I concur.

That would depend on the direction. Saul was traveling to Damascus to further his persecutions of Christians, when he encountered a meeting with the risen Jesus Christ who asked him why he was persecuting Him. After some dialog, Paul was stricken with blindness for a number of days. Afterwords, hi…s name was changed from Saul, to Paul. (this is of course a condensed version, look into the New Testament for further inquiry). ( Full Answer )

Note: Don't listen to those Assad supporters, because they're out there to brainwash others to support this bloodthristy dictator. Be objective and find the truth. Its cause is a long and pitiful tragedy. Syria was created as a byproduct of Ottoman Turkish and French occupation. When the French ki…cked the Turks out of Syria after WWI, the French started to intergrate several religious and ethnic communities (Sunnis, Alawites, Christians, Druzes, Kurds) under their control, creating a nation called "Syria". The French does not trust the Sunni Muslim majority and hence they installed their colonial army officers with Alawite, Druze, and Christian troops. This is where Bashar al-Assad's father, Hafez al-Assad started his military career. When the French finally gave Syria independence in 1946, it was established as a Western-style parliamentary republic, with a powerful parliament, prime minister, and a figurehead president. However the government itself is elected by majority Sunni Muslims. Those who are not Sunnis resented this new parliamentary republic system. Syria's minorities started to support the rising new Arab Socialist Baath Party, where the Baath Party preached religious and ethnic equality (however, when they come to power in 1963, they act as hypocrites and started sidelining Sunni Muslims). The parliamentary republic reached a dead end when Syria signed with Nasser's Egypt to become united into one country under the United Arab Republic. However, Syria's religious minorities feared that they'll be marginalized under Nasser, so they end up launching a military coup under the political arm of the Baath Party and seized power in 1963. The Baath Party becomes the sole legal political party in Syria--hence ending the parliamentary democratic system and starting the dictatorship era of Syria. The Baath Party, despite united under a common goal of uniting all of Syria's religious communities, was ideologically divided in Cold-War style politics. The Baath Party back then was under Salah Jadid, who represent the pro-Soviet faction of the Baath Party. Salah Jadid's opposition was the Baath Party's pragmatist faction, led by defense minister Hafez al-Assad. The two sides started to break out openly when Salah Jadid assisted the Black September guerrillas of the Yasser Arafat's PLO to overthrow the Jordanian monarchy of King Hussein so that Arafat can seize control of Jordan and become part of Greater Palestine. Hafez al-Assad himself did not want to overthrow the Jordanian monarchy, as he only wants to protect Palestinians from the Jordanian army only. Conflicts arose between the two sides, leading for the Jordanian army to kick the PLO and all the Palestinians out to Lebanon. That conflict itself led to the Hafez al-Assad's coup d'etat in 1970 and ousted Salah Jadid and his supporters from the government and declare himself Syria's president. Under Assad's rule, he continues to commit to the Baath Party's ideological commitment towards secularism and religious equality, as he begins building Syria's military and security structures to withstand internal and domestic threats to the Baath's power in the fear of a Sunni Islamist takeover---with the support of his own Alawite base, as well as on Christians and Druzes. When these threats started to occur with the Muslim Brotherhood uprising in Hama, he mercilessly suppressed the uprising using bombs, airplanes and tanks, killing and slaughtering every civilian that existed in Hama in 1982 as a punishment for creating the Islamist uprising. The world ignored that event as though it didn't happened. Assad also started a pervasive cult of personality as a Arab Nationalist warrior-type figure, showing himself fighting against Israel in the Six-Day War and all the subsequent wars. His anti-Israeli credentials did brought him a big support for his regime. Hafez al-Assad remains president until his death in 2000. When his death came, the rubber-stamp Syrian parliament amended the Syrian constitution on the presidential age-limit to allow his son, Bashar, to become president. Under Bashar's rule, he continued many of his father's policies, however, Bashar started to privatize sectors of the Syrian economy, allowing limited private investment and free markets into the country. However, Bashar created crony capitalism by placing his relatives or his supporters to run as CEO's. He ignored and neglected the management of everyday economic problems such as unemployment, inflation, poverty, etc...and marginalized the countryside as well. When the Arab Spring came, protests started to spread across Syria and this is what created the Syrian Uprising. Bashar is no different from his father in using the same military tactics to suppress protests and the opposition in merciless, bloody way. Like Father, Like Son. Despite the brutality and threat of genocide in that country, Bashar still has a relatively strong support from Syria's minority population, as the uprising started to get sectarianized with the opposition becoming more and more Sunni-dominated. That's what makes him different from Ben Ali, Mubarak, Gaddafi, and Ali Saleh. While those four dictators have no cover from the international community, Bashar still has a political cover from his allies, Iran, Russia, and China to portray Bashar as a good-guy facing the "so-called Sunni extremists".

They could and they perceived that doing this was their duty aspious Muslims. Historically, there was the "Right to Conquest" which was apervasive idea in political thought. The idea was that it wasnatural for any country or state to grow and control more territoryas it grew stronger. This allowed …weaker states to dissolve inplace of ones that were better run, a bureaucratic version of"survival of the fittest". The "Right to Conquest" prevailed as thedominant theory of nation-building until the mid-1800s when peoplestarted bringing up the concept of self-sovereignty and ethnicnationalism, which held the idea that people should governthemselves even if they are not the most powerful in the world.This view of state sovereignty has become dominant today and theRight to Conquest is seen as incorrect. Since the Caliphates existed well within the Right to ConquestPeriod, the Caliphs did not have to assert a reason to conquerneighboring territories in Southwest Asia. It was their naturalprerogative.

A: Acts of the Apostles, by an unknown author but traditionallyattributed to Luke, Paul began to preach Christianity in thesynagogues, until the Jews took counsel to kill him. The discipleshelped him escape the wrath of the Jews by lowering him down by thewall in a basket (Acts 9:20-25). In Paul's… own version of events (2 Corinthians 11:32-33), the pagangovernor of Damascus sought to arrest Paul, but he escaped thesoldiers by being lowered in a basket from a window by the wall.There can not have been two separate occasions in which Paulescaped from Damascus by the same means, and there are soundreasons to believe that Paul's own account is historically true.
