Palestinians for Syria

21/01/12 is the Global Day Of Rage For Syria

A peaceful revolution…a revolution against foreign intervention…a revolution against sectarianism and factions.This is the revolution of the Syrian people we know.

For ten months now the Syrian people have marched towards freedom and we have no doubt that they will achieve their liberation. For this reason we see it as a duty to warn them of the dangers of foreign intervention and to express our support for their peaceful revolution against sectarianism and factions.

For ten months the Syrian people have marched steadily towards freedom, despite the criminal oppression of Bashar al-Assad’s regime which uses weapons against its own people, instead of using them to liberate their occupied land, and despite the disagreements among their representatives whom the people gave trust in.

For ten months the Syrian people have marched towards freedom as martyr after martyr is sacrificed, which has only strengthened their resolve and steadfastness to continue their march.

 

For ten months the Syrian people have marched towards freedom as the world analyzes the meanings behind slogans raised in protests, and satellite channels have garnered more viewers with the increase in bloodshed and murders. The media sells to its viewers talks of a conspiracy or of a civil war, and many powers, sells us their support to freedom or democracy in the Middle East, when they never did. We are confident that these plots will fail and be crushed under the feet of the Syrian Arab People.

Ten months and we have avoided watching the disfigured bodies and the brave women who do not fear facing the live ammunition. Ten months and we chose which channel to hear from about the news of 30, 70, 100 martyrs of Syria, which made us ashamed from our miserable show of solidarity, as at the end of every day dozens of families lose their sons and daughters, with seemingly no one to share their pain with.

We, Palestinian activists and bloggers, on the Global Day of Rage for Syrian Revolution, stress our support for the brave revolutionary Syrians. We strongly reject manipulating the Palestinian cause as a cover under which the Syrian martyrs’ bodies are brushed under and stamped upon by Bashar al-Assad’s regime. It is true we must think logically about the dynamics of the Syrian revolution, but we must put the overwrought analyses aside, because the cost is the blood of our Syrian brothers and sisters. We reiterate our support for the peaceful Syrian revolution and its rejection of foreign intervention amidst the threats of sectarianism, as without our solidarity and faith we have no right in theorizing and preaching to the Syrians who are being murdered one after the other.

We all are Syria

The Assad crime organization

Many of us have watched the Sopranos or the Godfather and were entertained by them, in Damascus the situation is the same but it’s less entertaining, we see them everyday but instead we call the head of the family there the president or the ophthalmologist. Don’t let that fool you the Assad family is a crime organization in many different aspects and they are no different than the Sopranos or the Corleone families, but for four decades they owned something no typical crime organization has owned before: A state.

Kim Jung Il and Gaddafi are also heads of crime organizations, and they own states too, but their states are not described as stable. Bashar Al-Assad is the second generation to run the family business, coming from an alawite minority the Syrian regime won’t leave easily. Syria produces 400,000 oil barrels per day 28 thousand of that is for exporting this brings to the family  millions of dollars per day, and that is something no crime organization dreamed about. The family itself is considered unstable and we can look back to 1983 when Hafiz Al-Assad suffered a heart attack and left his brother Rifaat in charge, but Rifaat a failed attempted to take power through a coup d’etat which resulted in his exile. Another fracture in the Syrian regime  is when Abdul Halim Khaddam resigned and claimed that the Syrian regime sent threats to Rafiq Al-Hariri who was assassinated in 2005.

Khaddam who was once the most powerful Sunni politician in the Syrian regime has left Syria for exile and now heads the National Salvation Front in Syria from exile, accused the Syrian government of assassinating a top Hezbollah fugitive “for Israels sake.”

The history of the Assad family in crushing any opposition can be traced back to the 1980s when the regime crushed the Muslim Brotherhood in the city of Hama, they did not leave it at that, they also crushed the innocent civilians of the city, and who ever supported or as much as sympathized with the organization was killed or declared missing, the massacre’s casualties who are counted in the thousands and in the tens of thousands are a proof that the regime wouldn’t hesitate for one second to mercilessly crush any opposition but this time it’s not Hama, it’s Daraa.

The current operations in Daraa are the regime’s response to any ideas of change or reforms, and that the regime won’t think twice before killing anyone involved or even uninvolved in the freedom demanding protests.

But no tyrants lasted for ever, even Hitler who has the blood of millions on his hands didn’t survive, Syria will return to be the glory of the Arab world thanks to the 15th of March youth.

Bashar Al-Assad won't last

Gaddafi played all his cards in one go

The king of kings? Or the king of capital punishment?

Today in Gaddafi’s speech, he played all his cards in one go. He threatened the people with violence (as if violence was not used until now),  then he started talking about conspiracy theories, that this revolution is organized by foreign intelligence agencies (Westernand Arab ones). We believe that Gaddafi is trying a psychological warfare agaist the people, by warning them of a possible civil war at one time, then of radical Islam at another. Everyone can notice that Gaddafi is trembling and shaking, one of these signs is the not so well staged speech.

Gaddafi pretended to be talking to the Libyan crowds, and calling them to be stop clapping so he can continue his speech, funny thing is that we couldn’t hear anyone clapping or chanting, and the cameraman didn’t even bother to give us a glance at these crowds. Another thing we noticed a side from his hilarious figure, his shaking hands, drinking water every once in a while, and the excessive repeating of subjects, especially when he claimed that the revolutionaries were drug addicted youth encouraged by the mentioned above foreign intelligence agencies and radical Islam. Gaddafi who is known for his wild imagination said these “hateful elements” were trying to convert “the great” Libya into a copycat of Afghanistan. He also tried to justify his actions against the Libyans with what Boris Yeltsin the late Russian president did when the Russian Duma went on strike.

One of the evidences that Gaddafi is far from being sane, his endless talk about himself being “the true revolutionary”, mentioning capital punishment around fifty times and on various issues most of these crimes are specially designed to protect this failing regime and prevent anything that has to do with human rights, calling Libya the leader of the nations and continents starting from Asia and ending in Latin America, and his talk about himself being a Libyan war hero, patriot, and the caring leader.

It is crystal clear that regime is one step away from falling with Col. Gaddafi and his sons on board, and we wish to express our great support to the Libyan revolution, and also our deepest condolences to the families of those who fell in this revolution.
