آل اسد المسلح بسلاح الجيش السوري تتمرجل على شعب أعزل
Daraa is a dusty small town in the Southeastern corner of Syria. Until very recently, its only claim to fame was it being mentioned in the diaries of the legendary Lawrence of Arabia. In the last few days the derelict town has become the center of the anti-Assad demonstrations in Syria. Some people, the exact number of which is not known, were killed; many others were jailed. The rioters destroyed the statue of former President Hafiz Assad and the office of Syria's cell phone company, owned by Rami Makhlouf, Bashar Assad's maternal cousin. The regime counter-attack is led by elements of the Presidential Guard, commanded by Maher Assad, the younger brother of Bashar.
While all this happening, the town and the region of the Houran, of which it is the capital, suffer from a severe shortage of water. Little wonder, that the poverty-stricken Houranis finally raised the banner of rebellion, reacting to a situation which is common throughout Syria, and not only in their own region.
Let's start with water. Syria is on the verge of a catastrophic water crisis, caused by years of drought and total neglect by the government of the water sources. Over a million starving and thirsty peasants, mainly Kurds from the North-east of Syria, but also Sunnis from the Houran and Druze from the neighboring Jabal region were forced to abandon their traditional way of life and migrated to the metropolitan areas, particularly the Capital, Damascus. This is a time-bomb that is waiting to explode, and the Houran riots are just the beginning. The traditionally belligerent Kurdish population of the Jazeera region are next in line, and possibly also the urban Kurdish population of Damascus, Aleppo and Hamah.
For years the Syrian regime was warned that the water problem is potentially explosive, but the pride and ineptitude of the government prevented any serious effort to deal with the situation. Overall the Syrian economy has taken a free fall for many years, the inevitable result of failed Socialist policies, as well as rampant corruption. Corruption in Syria is endemic and closely-related to the ruling Assad clan, as well as to a group of other families which have played a leading role in the regimes of both Assad presidents. The Tlas family is a case in mind. Mustafa Tlas was the Minister of Defense for almost 40 years. His family is rumored to accumulate many millions of dollars in a country as poor as Syria. On top of all, the Assad family controls enormous amount of wealth, and Rami Makhlouf mentioned above, is the businessman-in-chief of the family, much the same as Gamal Mubarak was under his disgraced father.
The Assad clan has been plagued for many years by internal dissent, the details of which could provide for more than one soap opera, that will overshadow a series like Dynasty and Dallas. Bashar's uncle, Rifa't Assad was the executioner-in-chief of the regime, until he fell out with Hafiz and was exiled. His lifestyle in Europe proves that he was never too far from the state coffers. Maher Assad, a cowardly murderer and an assassin who is entrusted with the task of putting down the current rebellion, is reputed to have a short fuse. In one famous incident, he shot and injured his brother-in-law, Assef Shawkat who is married to his sister bitch Bushra, and himself one of the regime's assassins....and the CEO of the odious White House Murder INC, in the Levant....since January 24th 2002.....
Still, in an emergency, the clan closes ranks and acts together to defend the power and the wealth. It is a typical reaction of regimes like that. The Kaddafi clan in Libya and the Saddam Hussein in Iraq, are other notable examples. The history of the Assad Presidents clearly indicates that the Libyan carnage will be dwarfed by what will unfold in Syria , when the regime will be pushed with its back to the wall.
That is going to happen rather sooner than later, as the combination of economic deprivation, the ever-existing confessional hatreds and the resentment to the Assad clan will push many more desperate Syrians to the streets and with it to the inevitable blood-letting. According to reliable sources, the military already used choppers against the protesters In Daraa.
And the longer Gaddafi clings to power there, the more committed the regime here becomes to following the Libyan model, sources in Damascus said.
“The problem is that the regime has been committing crimes for decades, so they can’t reform and open up — it is impossible,” said the student, referring to the combined five decades of rule by father and son Hafez and Bashar al-Assad. “If they do, then everyone will see their crimes — the disappearances, the theft, all of it. So they’ll fight to the end.”
He added: “Bashar is much worse than Gaddafi — and crazier. Don’t be fooled by the doctor thing (the president is a former eye doctor). He’s willing to do anything.”
So, what about a no-fly zone in Syria?
I, for one, do not hold my breath. Syria, as we know, is just a marginal oil producer....and a founding partner of the infamous White House Murder INC, in the Levant dating back to the 1970s.....
Beware the fox in sheep clothing just as much as the dictator who suddenly puts on the mantle of reform and democracy...., like Syria's little dictator and chief assassin of the infamous White House Murder INC,....
Someone should point to Bashar Assad that Mubarak agreed with the demonstrators and offered to meet their demands and so did Saleh of Yemen. One is out and the other is on his way. How can the same regime who was arguing a few days ago that they were immune from demonstrations and instability because they and the people are one suddenly decide that protestors are right and that there is no need for the emergency laws. Doesn’t anyone in the Syrian regime recognize the clear contradictions of pretending to be advocates for change and democracy? What a bunch of imbeciles. There is only one thing that dictators and oppressors can do and that is to admit their mistakes and leave instead of pretending to be part of the solution to a problem that they have created. Change is coming to Syria and the best that Bashar Assad can do is to move out of the way, before he ends up like Ceausescu.....
Why hasn’t Bashar Assad, the pussycat, given a speech yet?
** It’s been a week, baby! **
Because he is a pussycat, a figure head, a fig leaf and a puppet. His only claim to fame are the barbaric assassinations between January 24th 2002 and Feb. 12th 2008, through the odious White House Murder INC,… together with Asef Shawkat’s goons.
Hence, Hilary Clinton, John Kerry, Arlen Specter, Netanyahou, Sarkozy and the stupid Europeans will offer an umbrella of protection to this criminal gang in Damascus. Pathetic hypocrites rule the day, and CIA/MOSSAD/MI6/DGSE/BND/GIDs are their favorite tools of oppression, and extra-judicial cowardly assassinations in the Levant and the World over....
Look at this GEM from Israeli media today….
Washington, Israel, Turkey and Iran all have great reasons to want Bashar Assad to remain at the helm – he’s seen as a safety valve…. and a prime mover and shaker in the Infamous White House Murder Machinations INC,…in the Levant since 2000.
That says it all…Birds of the same feather flock together…Pathetic hypocrites despite ALL the daily rhetoric about Freedom and Democracy and other crap....
More from the Israeli Media today:
Washington is, therefore, willing to agree to Bashar Assad’s continued rule in exchange for some compromises with the protesters, or even their suppression with a “reasonable” amount of force….That is the GEM and the Consensus of the Israeli Media today….Pathetic indeed.
Assad’s most trusted allies are in Israel…. Time and again it’s been proven whenever the Assad regime is in trouble the Israeli government rushes to its rescue… A regime with history of supporting CIA/MOSSAD renditions and the infamous White House Murder INC, in the Levant….inside and outside Syria and frustrating the efforts of a credible peace in the region should not be considered a potential partner for peace… For Israelis who enjoy the fruits of democracy yet continue to defy logic by counting on ruthless dictators rather than the side of rising democracies for true partners of peace is a pitiful situation indeed…. Israel helped Iran during the Iran-Iraq war by selling arms to Iran when everyone was helping Iraq… Destroying Iraq’s nuclear reactor ensured that Iraq could not use nukes against Iran… Israel also helped Hamas develop as a counter to Fatah and the PA…
Divide and Conquer is still the strategy…and the outcome will be hundreds of Tribes with Flags from MENA To Africa to China…. Is this the strategy to stop the (Oumma) Nation preached by many Muslim scholars…with the new Egypt from Morocco to China a new alliance is needed between Hezbollah , IRAN, Israel, Assad and Washington … They might agree with the Kissinger strategy but a sure war is likely to be the outcome between Sunni and Shia…
Syria is the kind of place that makes Hosni Mubarak’s Egypt look like a benevolent dictatorship… Nothing speaks of this as much as the story of Tal Al Malouhi, then a 17-year-old girl arrested in December 2009 in relation to prose and poetry about local affairs. After 14 months (during which she wasn’t allowed to take her high school graduation tests) of persistent demands from family and human rights groups for her release, Tal was put on private trial in the Higher State Security Court where she was convicted of espionage and leaking state sensitive information and sentenced to five years… Such is the ruthlessness and paranoia of the Syrian criminal system. Many believe that in addition to the regional unrest and Syria’s deteriorating economic conditions, it was Tal’s sentencing, which took place in mid- February that ignited protests there….
Knowledgeable people in Syria say the regime is now divided between the coward Bashar Assad , who would prefer to conciliate and co-opt, and his brother Maher al-Assad, commander of the Republican Guard, and brother-in-law Asef Shawkat, head of military intelligence, who want to keep firing….killing, maiming, assassinating people, exactly as they did through the prism of the Infamous White House Murder INC, since 2002. They are doing both: releasing political prisoners and promising an end to the emergency law under which the Ba’ath party has ruled Syria since 1963; and shooting demonstrators….
Hence, a Palace Coup D’état in Damascus is not to be excluded….
After Republican Guards entered Deraa last week, demonstrators taunted Maher al-Assad, their commander: “Maher, you coward, send your troops to liberate the Golan….”
Many Syrians have seen through the hollow rhetoric of their Crypto-Zionist Assad, and the spider’s web of crony capitalism and utter corruption…. They have been burning down not only Ba’ath party offices but local outlets of businesses owned by Rami Makhlouf, cousin to the Assads and billionaire beneficiary of their infamous rule.
Inspired by their Arab cousins, and inflamed by the insolence of the regime’s repression, they are losing their fear…
Good luck to the Syrian people.
موارنة لبنان! لا مسيحييه

خصوصاً الاشرفية قصفها و حاصرها لمدة ٩٠ يوم
و رفض اسقبال رئيس الجمهورية انذاك الياس

لماذا لم تتحرك المجنزرات والدبابات والمدرعات لضرب إسرائيل عندما حلّقت طائراتها فوق قصر الرئاسة في اللاذقية؟ لماذا لم يتحرك الجيش باتجاه إسرائيل عندما دمّرت طائراتها مواقع عسكرية قرب دير الزور؟ كيف يمكن توصيف هذا التناقض «المريب»؟
كيف يمكن تصديق من يتهيّب تحرير جبهة الجولان المحتلة منذ خمسين عاماً، ولا يطلق على إسرائيل رصاصة واحدة؟ هل يمكن الدفاع عن ممارسات هكذا نظام أو تبرير سوء أفعاله إلا من أبواق مأجورة ومأمورة؟
من عدّل الدستور السوري في أقل من ربع ساعة واحدة، لتوريث الحكم؟ لماذا تأخر النظام عشر سنين عن رفع قانون الطوارئ، ورفع الظلم عن المظلومين، ثم لا يزال يستخدم أسطوانة «المؤامرة» و»المندسّين»، ليبرّر أفعاله ضد شعبه، ثم يخرج الشبيحة والقناصة لقمع الشعب وقتله علناً؟
