Bashar al-Jafari

The UN permanent envoy in the UN Bashar al-Jafari said, “There is a hysterical obsess to target Syria and not to collaborate with Six Points’ plan”.

Al-Jafari added that violence cannot stop in Syria as long as some countries are still intervening in the internal Syrian business.
Al-Jafari wondered, “Why do some insist on working outside the UN and the Security Council?”.
Al-Jafari pointed that the real help for Syria depends on fixing the suffering’s reasons, especially the terrorism that the armed groups commit.

The American led invasion of Iraq led to the demise of all non-Muslim minorities because the brutal reality of Sunni Islamic terrorism meant that they were easy targets. Similarly, Muslims also fled their homes and homeland in vast numbers in order to escape radical Sunni Islamic terrorist movements. Many of these refugees fled to different parts of Iraq and to other nations. Syria figured prominently for many refugees fleeing the “political vacuum” in Iraq which led to sectarianism, terrorism, chaos, and a complete breakdown of society.

In Syria the dual forces of important conservative Sunni Islamic dominated nations and leading Western powers, are conspiring together in order to further their respective agendas. Therefore, both forces have unleashed terrorism and sectarianism against the central government of Syria once a “political vacuum” emerged throughout the region. This combined Western and Sunni Islamic force is manipulating events in order to further their respective geopolitical objectives.

For Saudi Arabia and Qatar both nations are still smarting over the rise of powerful Shia political Continue reading

A political analyst says Zionists are pursuing a three-track strategy of “labyrinthine madness” to topple the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and destroy Syria.

“A politically incorrect wave of labyrinthine madness is casting its heavy shadow over Syria as the country is being surrounded left and right by Zionist plots thickening beyond control,” wrote Dr. Ismail Salami, author and political commentator, in an article published on the Global Researchwebsite.

Pointing to the activities of such Zionist heavyweights as Haim Saban, “an Egyptian born Israeli-American media mogul…and self-described as ‘a one-issue man’ with Israel being ‘his issue’,” he explained how Tel Aviv and its agents are working to unseat Assad.

“Israel is following a tripartite plot in order to topple Bashar Assad and destroy Syria under the guidance of [such figures as] Haim Saban: Continue reading

Israel smuggling weapons to Syria through Iraqi Kurdistan, sources say

Israeli airplanes are smuggling weapons into Syria through Iraq’s Kurdistan region, Syrian sources toldPress TV.

According to the sources, Israel sends weapons to Iraqi Kurdistan, which are then smuggled into Syria with financial assistance from Qatar.

Iraqi Kurdistan Regional Government President Massoud Barzani has facilitated the operations of illegal Israeli firms in the region.

Barzani also refused to hand over fugitive Iraqi Vice President Tariq al-Hashemi, who is accused of involvement in terrorist attacks, to the Iraqi government and helped him flee from the country.

Hashemi, who is accused of running a terror squad in Iraq, flew to Turkey on April 10 after visiting Qatar and Saudi Arabia on the third leg of what he called an “official visit” to regional countries. He still resides in Turkey.

Meanwhile, the Syrian sources said that Washington has trained 400 al-Qaeda militants in European countries. They are then reportedly transferred to Syria to carry out acts of violence.

The unrest in Syria began in March 2011, with demonstrations being held both against and in support of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s government.

The West and the Syrian opposition accuse the government of killing protesters, but Damascus blames “outlaws, saboteurs, and armed terrorist groups” for the unrest, insisting that it is being orchestrated from abroad.
