The purpose of this blog is to illustrate a perspective on the Syrian conflict that media stations like FOX News, Al-Jazeera, and CNN would never dare to show. Many have been deceived into thinking the situation in Syria is as simple as, "Bashar is killing his people." This blog disputes and challenges that claim. A lot of people do not know about the arms the protesters possess, the agenda they're trying to push, the popular support Bashar al-Assad enjoys, or who's really killing and being killed in Syria. This blog is in dedication to everyone who wishes Syria recover and that the bloodshed stop. There is one agenda for this page: to get you to think and hear about the perspective you have not been told.
A senior Syrian official says Israel has used depleted uranium in its recent airstrike against the Jamraya Research Center in the outskirts of Damascus.
The official, who was present near the attack site on Sunday morning, told Russia Today that Israel used “a new type of weapon” during the airstrike.
“When the explosion happened, it felt like an earthquake,” the official, who asked not to be named, added.
“Then a giant golden mushroom of fire appeared. This tells us that Israel used depleted uranium shells,” the Syrian official said.
“Several civilian factories and buildings were destroyed. The target was just an ordinary weapons warehouse. The bombing is an ultimatum to us,” he added.
The Syrian official also refuted the claims by Western intelligence sources that the airstrike targeted transfers of weapons from the Lebanese resistance movement Hezbollah to Syria.
Jamraya Research Center had been targeted by another Israeli airstrike back in January.
The Sunday attack came shortly after Tel Aviv confirmed that its warplanes had hit another target in Syria on Friday.
On Saturday, US President Barack Obama said the Israeli regime has the right to launch airstrikes on Syria.
Syria’s Foreign Ministry has sent letters to the United Nations and its Security Council stating that Israel’s aggression shows the link between Tel Aviv and terrorist groups operating in Syria including the al-Qaeda-linked al-Nusra Front.
Meanwhile, the anti-Syria countries including Turkey and several Arab states in the region have been mum on Tel Aviv’s acts of aggression against Syria.
A lot of you have become so sectarian when it comes to the conflict, you are directly part of the problem and in no way shape or form, should ever voice your opinion on the Syrian conflict. To simply label the conflict as a Sunni/Shia problem, is to simply label the Cold War as a war of ideologies. No respectable historian would ever say the Cold War was simply due to communism/capitalism, which is why you cannot label the Syrian conflict as that. What is happening is far more deep-rooted and troubling. What we are seeing is neocolonialism at its very finest, doing anything possible to take down the last line of defence within the Middle East.
I don’t know what angers me more, non-Syrians who support (or look over) the brutality of the regime of al-Assad, or non-Syrians who vocally support and cheer the FSA (and hate the PFLP, Leila Khaled, Hezbollah, etc. for their resistance to Israel).
It has come to my knowledge and news and pics are circulating out of Syria that are extremely disturbing. The grave and tomb of hujr ibn adi, one of the prophet’s loyal companions has been destroyed and dug up and his remains disturbed. Why do you say? Well he was a sahaba so it shouldn’t be an issue right? No the salafis of the “FSA” don’t like it because he was loyal to Ali ibn abi Talib that’s why. This is not long after the damage and partial destruction of sayida zaynab mosque, the daughter of Ali ibn abi Talib. They would have you believe that “the Shia are targeting FSA or the Syrian people” when in fact they are targeting Shia areas in Syria and historical figures in islam and artifacts belonging to all Muslims, but since they have a connection to Ali ibn abi Talib they don’t want that. Add to that they are targeting Syrians who happen to be Shia.
Saddam tried to wipe Ali’s name from memory so did every other ruthless tyrant throughput history of Iraq and the Arab world. However, imam Ali (as) is timeless, he is in the hearts and minds. The salafis have been trying to do this since the dawn of islam, but they will never be successful.
Some people just don’t fear god, because they don’t believe in him. Just like we did throughout time, we will restore your fear of Allah or The Lord will take care of that for his chosen successor imam Ali.
Aleppo, Syria, my home, is famous for its love of music. It is said that every house in the city contains at least one instrument. My anxiety over the city and the news of its destruction is intimately connected to my anxiety over the survival of our musical traditions, what we all stand to lose when shrapnel and rage reduce a cultural nexus to rubble. These days, the bombed-out residential streets are lined with the splintered wood of ouds.
The Islamic Republic of Iran, which follows the logic Islam, is opposed to any bombings and killings of innocent people, no matter if it is in Boston, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq, or Syria and condemns it. The US and other so-called human rights advocates remain silent on the massacre of innocents in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq, and Syria, but they cause a ruckus after a few blasts in the United States.
THEY BRAVE ASSAD’S BOMBS AND PROTEST TO MARK SYRIA’S INDEPENDENCE DAY. Aleppo: Apr 17, 2013 - The day is remembered for Syria’s independence from France. However today it is celebrated for the eventual independence from the Assad regime.
That was so powerful.
What I don’t get is that the majority of Aleppo not only supports the regime (70%, according to the rebels), yet the opposition feels the security to openly proclaim itself as a legitimate representative of our people (there are many groups in the opposition that are not committing atrocities, such as the PYD).
Syria has already had its Independence Day. Syria has already been free from colonialism (even if it is not currently free from authoritarianism) and imperialism. We did not struggle with our lives and our blood to be in the position we are now in, in which a colonial era flag is used by a brutal, western funded opposition to represent “hurriyeh” (freedom) and democracy. As someone who has had extended family arrested/killed and hurt by both the regime and the rebels, I can tell you that both sides will face retribution on Yawm al Qiyamah, insha’allah. But colonialism will never be accepted by the Syrian people, not will we be deceived. Syria’s independence has already come. It is time for the terrorists to go.
Also, why bother celebrating Independence Day if y’all stay using the French mandate flag? Khalsouna ba2a.
Non-Syrians should really stop talking about matters which they do not comprehend.
