Arab League of Ewes and Treason

Unfortunately, the so-called League of Arab states  has been deformed into a cheap tool in the hands of anti-Arab imperial and colonial forces. Since the beginning of the crisis in Syria, this League was literally kidnapped by Qatar and Saudi Arabia whether by a carrot or a stick, in a destructive dirty role against every form of supposed Arab solidarity .

The Syrian Arab Republic, a founding member of the League with a glorious central and pivotal role in Arab solidarity, joined action and serious cooperation was the target of every sinister move by the League in implementation for anti-Syria interests and dictations.

Syria, given its historic and national role, did expect from the League a national political approach in dealing with the crisis in Syria. Unexpectedly this League worked against the sovereignty , unity and dependence of Syria and took a series of illegal and dangerous decisions  against Syria and in flagrant violation of the League charter, principles and objectives. Thus,  after the illegal suspension of Syria's membership in the League, the League adopted resolution number 7595 dated March 6, 2013 calling on Syrian opposition to form an executive  body to occupy the Syrian seat in the League. This resolution does violate in letter and spirit the League charter, where article 2  of the charter calls for cooperation and safeguarding of the independence and sovereignty  of Arab member States. Further article 8 of the charter calls for respect among member states with a pledge that no member state would carry a measure  as to change a regime in another.

The League of Arab States, founded by the British as to divide and rule, has been transformed during the crisis in Syria, and as Dr. Bashar al-Jafaari, Syria's Permanent Representative to the UN, has recently clearly stated, into a "Dismembering"  Gulf  body controlled by petrodollars , Islamist ,  Wahhabi, takfiri   and jihadi fundamentalism". This League did  try to provoke the  UN Security Council against  Syria, causing the  collapse of the defensive lines on which the Arab and Islamic nations were built over decades and centuries.

 Actually, the ongoing in  Syria is indeed a  grave mistake and a big disadvantage of the League, particularly Qatar, the trouble maker which spared no efforts to kidnap today's Arab Summit, for the sole purpose of weakening and dismembering Syria. "you can lead a horse to a spring, but you can't force him to drink'; the Qatari and Saudi petrodollars can pay for some persons of a Syrian origin, but can never compel more than 20 million Syrians to abandon their morals, dignity, Syrianity, secularity nor their elected and dignified leadership. Doha's summit is but much ado about nothing as were more than  18 ministerial  Arab conferences to undermine the Syrian position. A league led by the ewes, sponsoring extremism and terrorism, calling for foreign military intervention in Syria, is but an example for treason, hatred and fratricide.

Preacher of Amity, Love and True Islam

The late Preacher Sheikh Mohamad Saed Al-Bouti was the man of peace, fraternity, true Islam, and the voice of reason. He stood firm and steadfast in preaching the true sublime meanings of religion for God's sake and never ever for any other purposes. The preacher was indeed the voice of reason, patriotism and justice; he defended to the last breathe and drop of his blood the noble causes of his homeland, religion, and convictions. Thus, his presence in the world of pre-fabricated and ready-made verdicts and fatwas issued by sheikhs of royal courts, foreign intelligence bodies and some Arab regimes was a unique exception. This made of our beloved late preacher the target for a heinous terrorist suicidal attack along with tens of worshipers inside al-Iman Mosque. The ignorant forces of darkness wanted to silence his voice of reason; Allâh, however, ''will not allow except that His Light should be perfected even though the Kâfirûn (disbelievers) hate (it).  

The late preacher, on June 15, 2000, in an eulogy word following the untimely demise of the late President Hafez Al-Assad, the builder of modern Syria, said that the Syrian people learned from their great late leader wisdom, highness, peace and not to abandon their rights, addressing  lieutenant general Dr. Bashar Al-Assad , asserting to H.E. that '' Responsibilities are heavy but God will help you. I congratulate the Syria people that they will not transfer from this umbrella into a burning sun but will remain within shady shadows,"

The time moves on and 13 years later of sincere and honest  preaching of the true sublime meanings of true Islam, President Bashar Al-Assad addresses a touching telegram of condolences over the passing away of the martyred preacher of goodness and blessings, describing him as the '' real man who expressed the real voice of Islam" and as '' one of the great figures in Syria and the entire Islamic world, who carried along the real message of Islam, as the  voice of Islam and the light of faith" in the face of "the forces of darkness  and the takfiri extremist thinking."

Actually, the Syrians, not to mention every true believer worldwide, were relieved when President Al-Assad made a promise in his telegram that the blood of our great Preacher and martyrs ''will not go in vain'', pledging that we would ever adhere to our late Preacher's  thought against the takfiri thinking until we purge Syria from it. The Syrians will ever remain faithful to your teachings  while your corpse resides nearby Salah Eddine Monument and your soul blessed with martyrs.

Our late Preacher was indeed, as Information Minister Omran al-Zou'bi declared, ''an incomparable man with all standards and meanings. The Syrians' real response is but to be the more of  commitment to the national dialogue, fraternity, love  and amity among themselves. ''Think not of those who are killed in the Way of Allâh as dead. Nay, they are alive, with their Lord, and they have provision.''

Turkey, Qatar Terrorism Supporters Should be Held Accountable

Tens of Syrians were killed or wounded in a terrorist chemical missile attack against Khan Al-Asal in Aleppo Countryside. Actually, and as Minister of Information, Omran al-Zoubi, declared, the countries which have been arming the opposition are responsible for this massacre.

'' The governments of Turkish Premier Recep Tayyip Erdogan and  Qatar bear legal, moral and humanitarian responsibility   for the crime perpetrated  by the terrorists in Khan al-Asal, and indeed ''international community and countries that finance , arm train and shelter terrorists, should be held accountable for   this heinous  crime,'' said Minister al-Zoubi, asserting that the Syria government  is entitled to act according to the rules of international law and appeal  to international and regional organizations to  prosecute and lodge complaints against  the countries which supplied the foreign-backed terrorists with  internationally prohibited weapons.

 Earlier, a political analyst, Randy Short, said that the people of Turkey are against war in Syria and oppose the involvement of the Turkish government in the ongoing crisis in their neighbouring state.

''The Turkish people as well as intellectuals and human rights activists have realized that the Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s government is violating international principles by aiding the militants in Syria.'' Short said in a recent interview with Press TV.

''Right now their head of state as well as Saudi Arabia and Qatar, which are attacking the people in Syria, are war criminals and they need to be treated as such and so the people of Turkey are to be commended that they are showing solidarity with the heroic people of Syria who do not want to be a proxy state under the thumb of the imperialist powers,” the analyst added.

On his part, Kemal Kilicdaroglu, the leader of Turkey’s main opposition party described, in statements to Turkey's Sky TV, as “grave mistake” the policy of Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan toward Syria.

Kilicdaroglu, the leader of the Republican People's Party (CHP), said more Syrians are being killed as a result of Ankara’s financial and military support for the Syrian opposition.

Meanwhile, Vice- President of the Turkish workers Party, Bulent  Assen Oglu,  reiterated  that the government of Erdogan does support terrorism in Syria and pushes its nose in the domestic Syrian affairs.

The foreign-backed terrorists' heinous crimes against the Syrians cannot be stopped without pressing the states that back terrorism in Syria to stop their dirty games and their arming, training, dispatching and sheltering of these terrorists.

Dialogue the Way Out

The ongoing efforts exerted by the Syrian Government aim mainly  at the implementation of the executive plan of the political program for the political solution for the crisis in Syria, not to mention the measures taken to stand up to the challenges imposed by the crisis..

This very plan enjoys the support of the majority of the Syrians, who are interested in restoring the stability and security to their motherland, Syria. The majority wants  reform, construction and building against every form of terrorism, destruction and unrest.

Almost every delegation, party and organization, who were received by the special committee for executing the political program, chaired by Premiere  Wael  al_Halqi, voiced support to the program and to the dialogue among the Syrians to emerge out victories from the crisis. The special committee has held so far more than thirty meetings with representatives of different spectra of the Syrian society, intellectuals, parties and organizations. The meetings were cordial, open, frank and fruitful. Syria's welfare, will being, reconciliation and interests were the second to none priority by all. Stress was laid on the need to fight foreign backed terrorism and defeat it, and to achieve victory against colonial and greedy forces of darkness. The remarkable achievements of the Syrian hero army were highly lauded and appreciated .

The discussions, according to the news circulated and reported, were serious and constructive. The viewpoints exchanged, varied and different at times , were identical as far as the main issues of concern: Syria is above all and for all Syrians. Hopefully by the end of March, Syria's long awaited for dialogue conference would yield what Syria, the cradle of civilization, and Syrians merit and deserve. After all it's the majority of the Syrian's free choice and ballot boxes in commitment to the path of the real builders of modern Syria.

Colonial Powers… Where to?

Syria's destiny has ever been to defend itself, sacrifice and vanquish. The ongoing battle for dialogue, reconciliation on one hand and for combating terrorists on the other is on until the world's colonial, greedy, and satellite ewes stop their arming, sheltering and training of killers and terrorists. If the Syrians, Army and civilians, aren't to defend Syria, do they deserve even their identity?

The fierce attacks by colonial powers, especially France and UK, and flagrant violations of every international law have been escalated with French President Francois Hollande and British Premier, David Cameron's recent calls on Europe's leaders to lift an arms embargo on Syria and supply the already armed to teeth multinational terrorists with the more of killing and destruction means.

However, there are still some voices of reason inside the EU, who realistically oppose the more of arms smugglings and supplies to the terrorists, mostly al-Qaeda affiliated groups. Thus, Austrian Foreign Minister Michael Spindelegger warned against the British Government's call for arming the Syrian opposition, as transgressing EU agreements, asserting that "The British approach to arm the Syrian opposition or train gunmen in Jordan or any neighboring country to Syria could lead to a rapid Britain's violation of the EU agreements". In tandem, German FM, Guido Westerwelle, warned that the supply of weapons to opposition would but break the more of fires.

Would the anti-Syria warmongers resort to reason and support the ongoing tireless efforts for political solution for the crisis in Syria? And to what extent would they seriously consider Minister Sergei Lavrov's warnings that arming the Syrian opposition would be against international law, and seriously too consider Minister Lavrov's  concerns about the presence of takfiri extremists and terrorists in Syria?
