Al-Quds Day

The Palestinian Cause has always been one of the political constants of the Baath Arab Socialist Party throughout its history of struggle. In fact, (BASP) reflects the political nature of the Syrians where the Palestinian Cause is considered as a core issue in their national ideology.

Thus, Palestine Office was created since the birth of the Baath Party, this office was in line with  those offices which formed the organizational and struggle structure of the Baath Party.

Moreover , it is obvious that any member of the party(BASP) could not get a  full membership unless he had carried out a military operation inside the Arab occupied territories.

The Palestinian cause has always been present  in all the Baath Party conferences , because it's not just the cause of the Palestinians, but it is the most fundamental issue  of every genuine Arab who sincerely believes in this cause irrespective of his creed .

Jerusalem is a holy land owing to the existence of al-Aqsa mosque , Dome of the Rock and the Church of the Resurrection . Therefore it is considered the spiritual capital of hundreds of millions of the followers of the three heavenly  religions. Besides, Palestine is part and parcel of the history of Syria, which has been riven with division by the notorious Sykes-Picot agreement .

 Al-Quds Day is an occasion to remind those who suffered the political dementia that Jerusalem is the holy occupied land. It  should remain in the conscience of everyone. There must be sincere calls for jihad aimed at restoring all holy lands  in the Arab countries not aiming at destroying nations and instigating sedition and sectarianism.

The anniversary of al-Quds Day should be shifted from an annual ceremony into a resistant collective work devoted to unite the Arabs' goals. Thus gun should be aimed  toward the Zionist enemy who is behind the conspiracy that triggered the conflict in the Arab countries.

The Zionist enemy being pampered by the United States and some of its allies of the region, is relentlessly endeavoring to create all kinds of conflicts in the Arabic and Islamic countries .

History necessitates  all the Arab and Muslim leaders to unify their stances  to confront  the conspiracies against the Arab  societies, especially Syria. While the heroic  Syrian army is proudly waging a historic confrontation battle against the US-Zionist project which exploits the Takfiri mercenaries to destroy the region .

 Syria is honorably leading the project of the Arab resistance not only to defend its territories and principles, but also in defense of the Arab ideology from the Ocean to the Gulf.

Muslim Brotherhood in Tatters

Day after day the conspiracy' tools against Syria have been revealed to enhance the determination of steadfastness and stability to defend Syria.

Notwithstanding a fierce historic conspiracy against Syria, it served a purpose to sift  the noble-minded, chivalrous from the lousy and mean. The sublime stances will distinguish the patriotic from traitor.

The Muslim Brotherhood have historically registered a black period being far from patriotism in the Arab world which was discovered by Syrians  in the eighties of the last century.

Egyptians today discover for the second time the Muslim brotherhood collusion not to mention the former president Jamal Abdul Naser and their sinister conspiracy against him.

Terrorist acts carried out by the Muslim Brotherhood in these days are reminiscent of the heinous crimes committed by the Muslim Brotherhood during the eighties in Syria, unfolding a new Ottoman Turkish replication in which greed floats to the surface by uncovering the deep meaning of the perpetrated acts of the Muslim brotherhood which provided a covert operation to dismantling the factories or affiliated sabotage to all economic infrastructure, representing in Ottoman revenge besides killing civilians or military men in cold blood.

It transpired to the whole world that  the role of Turkish brotherhood is   linked to the Egyptian one and the Istanbul Council Muslim Brotherhood who are working hands in glove.

Arab peoples realized the fierce criminal acts of the Muslim Brotherhood  gangs in Egypt, Turkey or Syria and other countries. The upshots of their deeds will be exasperating for these bands that grabbed power in the Arab countries.

Turkish Justice Party leaders' reactions reflected the extent of the damage that has plagued  Turkey, which resulted from the impotency of the Muslim brotherhood in Egypt.

Egypt, the greatest Arab country and supporter of the Palestinian cause which has been forgotten because of the fabricated crises in the Arab countries. America and the Israeli entity are the two only beneficiaries of these created crises aiming to eliminate the Palestinian cause once and for all in compliance with the Israeli targets, fearing that the results will become more cumbersome for the United States and Israel especially when Syria will announce the great victory against terrorism, Salafists, Muslim Brotherhood and Ottomans.

 Once again, Egypt will become free from the Muslim Brotherhood and   the political subordination to the United States to move straight in the right direction as expected if matters go forward on the right path.

Syrians' Steadfastness Toppled all Conspiracies

The British Prime Minister David Cameron , had acknowledged the existence of a large number of armed extremists among the opposition groups in Syria.

" For this reason,  Britain had not decided yet whether it would arm  these groups or not ." He said.

 On the other hand , France followed the same steps of Britain in an attempt  to avoid  the great criticism received by the parliament and public opinion in these two countries. Despite the fact that these two countries have not stopped supporting the armed groups since the beginning of the crisis in Syria.

Actually, the US, the first player in Syria's crisis continued its supporting terrorism inside Syria by arming terrorists through the back door. Hence the US is not capable of finding  other dirty methods in facing the criticism from the political circles and the US public opinion.

After the removal of all obstacles in the Congress about arming terrorists in Syria , the US has been entrusted the task of the implementation of its dirty goals against Syria to its  proxy in the region ,« Al Saud». Undoubtedly, Al Saud are very proud of their choice by the US master for this task considering that as a victory for them.

As for the US's main ally, "Zionist entity", it is doing a" good " job assigned to it in protecting the terrorists in the south of Syria and supporting them logistically .

Hence, the militants in the occupied Golan directed their weapons to Syrians  , they received the military and medical support from the Israeli occupation.

And after those mercenaries complete their mission in killing the Syrians, they  flee to the Israeli patrols, as if they were to meet their brothers, not the occupiers of our land, Syria.
It seems clearly that the US is no longer willing to work for a political process to resolve the crisis in Syria . As usual the US is exploiting the international and political situation especially the ongoing in Syria for its interests. Hence its foreign minister Kerry, shuttled the region to conclude a political deal to end the Palestinian cause in a way that satisfies Israel and with the blessing of a League which was once called an Arab League.

Syria was facing a multi-faced  war that never happened to any country in the world . The most influential is that economic war which is negatively affecting the livelihood of the Syrian citizen. But thanks to the Syrian Government which exerted great efforts to create economical and financial balance that guarantees a decent living for Syrians in this difficult circumstances.

But our hero Syrian Arab army made its best in defending  our beloved  homeland . The Syrian people scorn those mercenaries who betrayed their homeland and asked for the external intervention in return for their material gains. What is the future that awaits them? They do not get but humiliation and shame.

West war crimes in Syria exposed

There was a time during the 30-month covert dirty war on Syria when the Western governments and mainstream media would make a clamor over reported massacres.

Now, despicably, these governments and media just ignore such atrocities. Why? Because it is increasingly clear that the groups committing these crimes against thousands of Syrian civilians are the foreign-backed mercenaries, whom the Western media and their governments have tried to lionize as “rebels” fighting for “democratic freedom”, wrote Finian Cunningham, a prominent editor, writer and  expert in international affairs.

Cunningham added in his article, published by Press TV, That charade is rapidly disintegrating, exposing not just criminal Western governments sponsoring the violence against civilians, but an entire media industry that is also guilty of war crimes through its willful complicity.

This is not mere hyperbole. To disseminate false information and lies about conflict - under the guise of independent news - is to be complicit in covering up war crimes. You can hardly get more serious misconduct than to tell lies about crimes against humanity.

These toxic lies and propaganda are now being exposed as the Western-backed plot to subvert the sovereign state of Syria unravels; this unraveling is accentuated by the West’s death squads becoming even more unhinged as they stare at looming defeat at the hands of the Syrian army.

The latest massacre occurred in the town of Khan al-Assal in the northern province of Aleppo. Some 150 people, mostly civilians, were reportedly slaughtered in cold blood. Many of the victims were shot in the head execution-style. The groups claiming responsibility are the al-Qaeda-linked al-Nusra Front and Ansar al Khalifa.

Reliable sources say that the killers tried to cover up their barbaric crimes by mutilating the corpses and burning the remains. Only days before this orgy of murder, the same groups are believed to have massacred at least seven civilians in the town of Maqbara in the province of Hasakah.

Elsewhere, as the Syrian national army makes searing advances against the militants, it is apparent from the identities of the dead that the majority of these fighters are foreigners, from Saudi Arabia, Libya, Jordan, Turkey, as well as from the US and Europe, including Britain, France and Germany.

Just last week, it was reported that Saudi Arabia bought $50 million-worth of heavy arms from Israel to supply this foreign network in its endeavor to terrorize the people of Syria into submission.

Already, the US, Britain and France have stumped up over $200 million which they claim is provided to “the Syrian opposition” in the form of “non-lethal aid”.

This is just cynical semantics to cover up the fact that the Western governments and their regional Turk, Arab and Israeli proxies are sponsoring genocide in Syria.

Over the weekend as the mass murders in Khan al-Assal and Maqbara emerged there was a telling silence in the Western media. A cursory glance at outlets such as New York Times, Washington Post, Voice of America, the Guardian, BBC, France 24, Deutsche Welle, Reuters, among others, showed no or negligible reports on the atrocities.

A notable exception was the London-based Financial Times, which headlined: “Syria opposition condemns rebel attack”. The FT tried to obfuscate the mass murder of civilians by claiming that “extremist rebels” had executed captured Syrian army soldiers and by giving prominence to condemnation of the “abuses” by the exile non-entity group, the Syrian National Coalition.

Similar Western silence followed another massacre last month in the village of Hatlah in the eastern province of Deir al-Zour. In mid-June, more than 60 mainly Shia inhabitants were slaughtered again by Western-backed foreign militants. Most of the victims were women and children. Syrian government appeals for international condemnation at the United Nations were ignored.

Contrast this void in Western government and media reaction to earlier massacres. In May and June 2012, the Western media went viral with reports of mass killings in the villages of Houla and Qubair where some 108 and 78 inhabitants were murdered, many of them with throats slit.

It later transpired that the Houla and Qubair massacres were the work of the Western-backed foreign militants. But Western media did not follow-up with corrective reporting. This is the conduct of a propaganda ministry, not independent journalism.

The same propaganda formula of sensationalist headlines and innuendo, with minimal evidence, was repeated in subsequent massacres, such as in Tremseh in July 2012, or the bomb attack on Aleppo University in January this year in which more than 80 were killed. Also in that same month, more than 100 bodies were fished out of the Queiq River in the Bustan al-Qasr district of Aleppo - all of those victims with gunshot wounds to the head. Never mind that the district was under the control of foreign militants, the Western media continued their campaign of innuendo that it was the Syrian state forces that carried out the executions.

The Syrian government has consistently alleged that all these mass killings are the work of Western-backed militants. This sickening terrorist methodology concatenates with the Takfiri mentality of killing everyone who is deemed to be an infidel - Sunni, Shia, Alawite, Christian, non-believer alike, who does not subscribe to their fundamentalist twisted theology.

It is entirely in keeping that Western governments and Wahhabi Arab despots sponsor such groups given the long history of collusion between these protagonists, going back to the creation of al-Qaeda by Western military intelligence in Afghanistan during the 1980s to fight the then Soviet-backed government in Kabul.

The indiscriminate murder of civilians in wholesale massacres by Western-backed death squads operating in Syria to overthrow the Syrian government is also consistent with the countless no-warning car bombs that have ripped through markets, streets, hospitals and schools all across Syria. Days before the latest slaughter in Khan al-Assal, a car bomb killed at least 10 in the Jaramana district of the capital, Damascus.

A few months earlier, another deadly bomb attack also targeted Jaramana, killing more than 30. The district is a mixed community of Muslim, Christian and Druze, which is largely supportive of the government. As with the many other massacres in Syria, the aim is to terrorize the civilian population, to sow sectarianism and to coerce the populace to relinquish support for the government.

As the foreign criminal conspiracy to force regime change in Syria flounders - with the turning point being the Syrian army victory in Qusayr early last month - the Western-sponsored terrorists are resorting to more and more desperate methods. This depravity was manifested yet again in the slaughter of civilians in Khan al-Assal and Maqbara. Tragically and despicably, we can expect more such atrocities in the coming weeks and months as the Western criminal conspiracy suffers more defeats.

But what is truly remarkable is how the Western governments and their propaganda machine, known euphemistically as the mainstream news media, are ignoring these latest massacres. That is because their vile game is up. They can no longer dissimulate on the reality of who is carrying out these massacres and how it is all part of a criminal genocidal campaign directed from Washington, London and Paris. That is why they are feigning to ignore such atrocities. To look into them honestly would uncover the ugly face of Western imperialism and the unconscionable role played all along by so-called Western news media.

Meanwhile, proper journalistic services like Press TV that are reporting the reality of what the Western governments are really doing in Syria via their death squads are being banned from satellite networks controlled by Western authorities.

Indeed, a very real extension of this censorship is how Press TV correspondent Maya Nasser was murdered last September by Western-backed death squads in Damascus for the very reason that he was helping to uncover the truth about what is being inflicted on Syria. Assassination is just an extreme act of censorship, as the Irish playwright George Bernard Shaw once noted.

Western government and media silence over the latest massacres in Syria is not just a matter of indifference or sloppy journalism. It is indicative of their complicity in the covert genocidal war on Syria.

Memories from Baghdad

When we arrived to the Iraqi capital Baghdad we felt the nice and fresh perfume of history everywhere. Each stone , each corner in this city said: you are welcome not to your second but to your  first home.

The dreams capital Baghdad decided to challenge death , so it opened the life’s  book to show others wonderful chapters in this book.

The sun wakes up early to say to Tigris: good morning my favorite river , can I wash my face by your silver water ? The river’s answer is very clear : don’t ask me because you do not need an invitation when you enter your house. The quite river shakes its head , and the sun knows that it has invitation to visit it all the times.

We saw Baghdad museum and we greeted all the statues there because we thought they are real persons not just statues.

The American forces occupied Iraq for ten years and they tried to destroy the Iraqi civilization , but they forgot  that the rose of life is stronger than the cartridge of death.

We heard from our friends in Iraq many stories telling us how the American dirty invasion tried to create sectarian conflicts among the Iraqi social spectra, but it failed because the solid Iraqi society succeeded to win the battle and the American plans had gone with the wind.

Everything was wonderful in this kind Arab country , but the most wonderful thing was the emotion of Iraqi people for Syria.

We have read in their eyes how much they love the sky, the desert, the sea and the mountains of Syria.

They told us that we should be too careful to protect their country Syria , and they told us that Iraq and Syria are one country , one body.

They advised us to recognize the American game; this game has one goal to see the Arab world immersed in confusion, anarchy and civil wars.

 They said: You think that the American glass has sweet taste but in fact it is very bitter , please don’t drink from the same glass.

We left Baghdad with our memories as the life in our hearts for a long time and perhaps forever.
