Washington lobby to help arm terrorists.jpg

In Washington there exists a special lobby to help arm opposition groups and terrorists in Syria.

Is this lobby funded by the very powerful AIPAC, describing itself as "America's Pro-Israel Lobby' that advocates pro-Israel policies to the Congress and Executive Branch of the United States ?

'The State Department is aware that SSG has been lobbying some members of Congress and they have been getting a good reception wherever they go,' according to a State Department official who has met with SSG officials.

Liberated Prisoner al-Makt Rejects to Give interview to the Jazeera TV

 

Sep 25, 2012
 

Quneitra, (SANA)-The Syrian liberated prisoner Sidqi al-Makt rejected to give an interview to the Qatari al-Jazeera English-spoken TV which went on Monday to the occupied Majdal Shams town to make the interview with al-Makt and prepare a special report on the occupied Syrian Golan.

"I rejected to interview al-Jazeera staff which is considered as a partner in the war against the Syrian people… it is the field arm of sedition in our homeland," al-Makt said in a statement to SANA Tuesday.

He added that al-Jazeera TV is carrying out the agendas of extremists to execute a conspiracy along with the US against the Arab nation interests and the way of resistance.

Al-Makt called on journalists who work in the Arab-spoken channels of media instigation, including al-Arabiya and al-Jazeera to resign, adding that he dismissed several times a request by the Arab-spoken al-Jazeera to make a similar interview as it represents nothing but "the sheikhdoms of petroleum".

The liberated prisoner al-Makt, the oldest liberated prisoner, spent 27 years in the Israeli occupation prisons under the pretext of resisting the occupation. He was released on August 22nd, 2012.

China Stresses Efforts to Reach Just, Peaceful Solution to Crisis in Syria 

 

Sep 27, 2012

NEW YORK, (SANA) - China urged on Wednesday the international community to continue exerting efforts for finding a solution to the crisis in Syria and to remain on the right track in this regard, warning against the repercussions of the crisis on the whole region.

The Chinese news agency XINHUA quoted Chinese Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi as saying in his speech at the Security Council's meeting on the situation in the Middle East that China as a permanent member of the Council faithfully fulfilled its obligations and acted as a positive force in the efforts to resolve the crisis in Syria in a just, peaceful and appropriate way.

He called for supporting the UN envoy to Syria Lakhaar Brahimi's efforts to play a neutral role and seriously implementing the Council's relevant resolutions, the six-point plan of former UN envoy Kofi Annan and Geneva agreement.

The Chinese Foreign Minister pointed out that the international community should stay on the right track through finding a political solution to the crisis.

"We urge all the Syrian sides to implement the Security Council's resolutions, Annan's plan and Geneva agreement and to stop violence, protect the civilians and prepare the circumstances for a Syrian-led political transition," Yang said.

He expressed his country's concern over not finding a solution to the current crisis in Syria so far, asserting that the concerns are not only over the future and destiny of Syria and its people but over realizing peace and stability in the entire Middle East.

Czech Foreign Minister: Western Countries Should Not Arm Terrorist Groups in Syria

 

Sep 27, 2012

PRAGUE, (SANA) – Czech Foreign Minister Karel Schwarzenberg stressed that the armed terrorist groups receive large amounts of money and supply from countries such as Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Turkey.

The Czech News Agency quoted Schwarzenberg in an exclusive interview with The Cable as saying that his country doesn’t think that the western countries should arm these groups.

He said that things seemed to be more difficult in Syria because ”on the opposition side, there are many different groups, with different aims, financed by different countries."

Sep 27, 2012
 

MOSCOW, SANA - Russian President Vladimir Putin said the West is now spreading chaos in Syria as it did in a lot of countries. 

" Our Western partners are creating chaos and can't stop. Having wreaked havoc in many areas, they continue the same policy in other countries, including Syria," Putin added in a meeting with residents of the Russian province of Ryazan (200 km south-east of Moscow) on Thursday.

About his position on the events in the Middle East, including Syria the Russian President said:" "Our position is to encourage change for the better in all countries. We are not imposing, especially by force, what we believe in, but we want to stimulate the internal development," said Putin.

He went on to say "We have warned that we must act with caution, without imposing by force in order not to cause chaos. And what do we see today is a chaotic condition."

Belgium is sending terrorists and weapons to Syria

terrorist.weapons1.jpg

Some weeks ago the Belgian Senator Nele Lijnen said that she intends to launch a discussion at the Belgian Senate regarding the fact that the terrorists in Syria possess weapons made in Belgium.  

But Belgium is not only responsible for sending weapons for terrorist bomb attacks in Syria.

The Belgian State Security knows that Belgian jihadists are going to Syria for organizing these bomb attacks.

The U.S. and its allies work all on the same way: They send money and weapons to the jihadists coming from their country to carry out bomb attacks in Syria.

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon who has been posted twice to the Republic of Korea embassy in Washington, D.C. and served as Director-General for American Affairs in 1990–1992, conceals these matters and talks about a 'civil war' all the time.

----------------------------

August 3th, 2012

The Belgian State Security "has not confirmed" the rumor that Belgian jihadists are fighting in Syria. Thursday, the newspapers 'Het Belang van Limburg' and 'Gazet van Antwerpen' argued the opposite: "The State Security confirmed the presence of" Belgium".

It is uncommon, that the Belgian State Security issued a statement Thursday to correct statements that were attributed to him: "The State Security (...) confirms that Syria is a destination for international Islamist fighters. But the State Security has not been confirmed (...) that there are Belgians among them. "    In short, if the Security denies to have confirmed does not mean - this is important - it can deny the information.

Originally Flemish newspapers relied on a report by Reuters, dated July 31, citing statements from "several rebel commanders in the north-west Syria," according to which "Muslims in Great Britain, Belgium and the United States had joined the Free Syrian Army (SLA)". On July 13th, Reuters pointed out a flood "of thousands of assault rifles Belgian FN FAL was in the hands of the rebels".

In its annual reports, the Belgian State Security explains how and why she follows people attracted by fighting abroad: there was attention for Iraq, then, from 2010, to the movement towards Pakistan-Afghanistan border area; Finally, most recently, to new locations: "If the Afghan-Pakistan area, more than Iraq, was still popular in 2010 with the majority of volunteers for jihad", the Belgian State Security wrote in his latest report, "some of them began to plot their way to Yemen, Somalia and the Caucasus". And Syria now? "Obviously. Where they are beaten, those who return and who actually participated in the fighting have gained knowledge on how to handle weapons, strategy and tactics of war," noted the Belgian State Security yesterday. "This is the central reason for the Belgian concern".

Iranian Foreign Ministry, SCP Condemn Terrorist Bombings in Damascus

Sep 26, 2012

TEHRAN/DAMASCUS, (SANA) – Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast condemned the two terrorist bombings which took place in Damascus on Wednesday and resulted in the martyrdom and injuring of a number of citizens.

In a statement, Mehmanparast said that the responsibility for such terrorist actions falls on the countries and sides that seek to foil internal and regional efforts to resolve the crisis in Syria through political methods and dialogue without foreign interference.

He affirmed that aggravating the security situation, escalating terrorist and military activities and foreign intervention do not help resolve the crisis in Syria at all.

While he denounced these bombings which led to the martyrdom of a reporter from Press TV and injured the director of the office of Al-Alam TV channel, Mehmanparast said that mass media is fulfilling its duties under difficult and dangerous circumstances to cover events and publish facts to raise the awareness of public opinion, stressing that the use of force cannot deter journalists from clarifying the reality of the situation in Syria to the public.

Syrian Communist Party: Damascus Terrorist Bombings Aim to Undermine Syria's Anti-Imperialist Course and the Syrians' Steadfastness

In a statement, the Syrian Communist Party (SCP) affirmed that the two terrorist bombings that targeted the General Staff building aim to undermine Syria's anti-imperialist and anti-Zionist course and the Syrians' honorable steadfastness which foiled all conspiracies.

The SCP said that intelligence agencies of certain regressive Arab sides, particularly Saudi Arabia and Qatar, are funding the vandalism and terrorism acts committed by armed groups in Syria, while Turkey offers full sponsorship to these groups, all while waging a rabid propaganda campaign, employing a criminal economic siege, and leveling diplomatic pressure.

The SCP pointed out that the rise in vandalism and terrorist acts, from massacres to assassinations to bombings, will not defeat the Syrians and the valiant Syrian Arab Army, and that Syria will remain invincible to all conspiracies and faithful to its resistant history.

The statement also lauded the stances of the countries and peoples who support Syria in the face of this conspiracy, saluting the sacrifices of the Syrian Arab Army and the homeland's martyrs.

Latest News Syria: Terrorists acts with western aid and weapons...

terrorist.acts.Syria1.jpgMilitary Source: Four Guards Martyred, 14 Military Members and Civilians Injured in General Staff Building Bombings

Sep 26, 2012

DAMASCUS, (SANA) The armed terrorist gangs connected with abroad have carried out two terrorist bombings on Wednesday targeting the General Staff building, an official military source said.

It pointed out that the initial investigations indicated that the two bombings in the surrounding of and inside the General Staff building are caused by two booby-trapped cars.

The source said the terrorist attack resulted in the martyrdom of four guards of wounds they sustained in the explosions and the injury of 14 civilians and military members, in addition to causing material damages to the building and a fire in some of its parts.

The source said that this terrorist act coincided with shooting random fire by some terrorists in the vicinity of the building and the neighboring streets to spread panic among the civilians, asserting that the authorities confronted the terrorists and pursued them in the surrounding area.

"Seeing this criminal act as an evidence of the bankruptcy of those who lead the war against Syria, the General Command of the Army and the Armed Forces confirms that all the military commanders and commanding officers are safe and none has been wounded or hurt and they are continuing their daily duties," the source underlined.

"This heinous crime will enhance the determination of our armed forces in confronting terrorism and crushing all those who attempt to tamper with the security of the homeland and the citizens," the source said.

Al-Zoubi: Military Staff, Radio and TV Staff Are Safe

Earlier, Information Minister Omran al-Zoubi affirmed that all members of the military command, the General Staff and the Defense Ministry are safe, dismissing the news posted on  internet and aired by some media channels as false and coming in the framework of trying to influence the morale of the Syrian people and armed forces.

In a phone call with the Syrian TV , Minister al-Zoubi also stressed that all the staff of the General Establishment of Radio and Television, located in the surrounding area of the explosions, are safe.

The Minister pointed out that the terrorist act took place in an important site but the terrorists as usual failed to achieve their goals, asserting that the aggressive project targeting Syria is integral and has its tools, means and persons, "therefore we should expect such kind of barbarian acts as we are facing a war."

"Syria is facing a battle but not only in the political sense .. we are facing a brutal aggression. Therefore, the Syrian people and the armed forces have no choice except defending their homeland," al-Zoubi said.

"The aggression will be defeated.. we are ready to face it in its foreign sense and internal tools … we will remain committed to our political stances, and dialogue should be a Syrian-Syrian one,"  he underscored.

 "There won't be a dialogue with Syria's enemies abroad nor with those who conspire against Syria with foreign sides. Nor there will be international conferences with those who are part of the conspiracy against Syria," the Minister said.

He called on all those who want the interest of the homeland "to come to the dialogue table as the agenda of discussion is open and the space is a Syrian one."

In the same context, the Information Ministry dismissed "as groundless" the news reported by some instigative websites and satellite channels on the injury of the Defense Minister or any of the Military Commanders.

The Ministry also stressed that neither the Cabinet nor any governmental institution have been exposed to any terrorist acts, asserting that such news reflect these media outlets' bankruptcy and come in the framework of the miserable psychological war waged against the Syrian people.

Syria: Complaints against Turkish government officials

Turkish MP Files Complaint against AKP Government Officials over Policy towards Syria

Sep 25, 2012

ANKARA, (SANA)- Criticism of the Justice and Development Party (AKP) government's policy towards Syria from inside Turkey reached high levels with MPs filing complaints against the government officials over its violation of the Turkish constitution and laws in its dealing with Syria.

MP Hurşit Güneş from the Republican People's Party (CHP) filed to the Public Prosecution a complaint against the Turkish Prime Minister, Foreign Minister, Defense Minister and Interior Minister, in addition to the Governor of Iskenderun city.

Cumhuriyet newspaper quoted Güneş as saying in a press conference at the CHP HQ that the Turkish government is training gunmen in the Turkish territories, transferring weapons into Syria and providing all forms of aid and support to armed members fighting in Syria.

Güneş presented during the conference photos of Syrian opposition members carrying weapons in Istanbul and pictures of camps where gunmen are being trained in Turkey.

The MP stressed that the AKP government breached Article 92 of the Turkish constitution by deploying foreign military forces on Turkish territory without the Turkish Parliament's approval, saying that this deployment and the interference in the Syrian internal affairs in a way that endangers Turkey's security is a violation of the laws.

Turkish Admiral: Turkish Government Plays the Agent in the War against Syria

For his part, former commander of Turkish Naval Academy, Admiral Turker Erturk, stressed that the US and Israel are behind the events taking place in Syria, considering that the AKP government is playing the agent and tool in the immoral war launched against Syria.

In an article published by the Turkish Aydinlik newspaper, Adm. Erturk said the Turkish territories have turned into a terrorism base with the aim to create the conditions to pave the way for military intervention in Syria and undermine the coexistence through stirring sedition among the Syrian people.

He wondered at Turkey's help to the imperialists despite the obvious fact that fragmenting Syria would lead to the fragmenting of Turkey and inflaming the whole region.

Adm. Erturk said all the illegal practices and measures taken by the Turkish government are in the service of the "Great Middle East" project of the US and Israel.

Aleppo ,Homs, Damascus City, Idlib, Damascus, Latakia, Deir Ez Zor, Quneitra
Dara, Raqqa, Hama, Suwieda, Hassake, Tartus.

Brief Political History of Syria

Damascus Came under Muslim rule in A.D.636. and it became the capital of Omayyad Empire from A.D. 661 to A.D. 750, when the Abbasid caliphate was established at Baghdad, Iraq. Later, around 1260 it became a provincial capital of Mameluke Empire. It was largely destroyed in 1400 by Tamerlane, the Mongol conqueror, who removed many of its craftsmen to Samarkand. Rebuilt, it continued to serve as a capital until 1516. In 1517, it fell under Ottoman rule. They remained for the next 400 years, except for a brief occupation by Ibrahim Pasha of Egypt from 1832 to 1840. In 1920, an independent Arab kingdom of Syria was established under king Faysal of the Hashemite family. His rule ended after few months, following the clash between Syrian forces and regular French forces at the battle of Maysalun. French troops occupied Syria later that year after the league of Nations put Syrian under the French mandate. With the fall of France in 1940, Syria came under the control of the Vichy Government until the British and Free French occupied the country in July 1941. Continuing pressure from Syrian nationalist groups forced the French to evacuate their troops in April 1946, leaving the country in the hands of a republican government that had been formed during the mandate.

Independence to 1970

Although rapid economic development followed the declaration of independence of April 17, 1946, Syrian politics from independence through the late 1960s was marked by upheaval. A series of military coups, begun in 1949, undermined civilian rule and led to army colonel Adib Shishakli's seizure of power in 1951. President Shishakli overthrown power in a 1954 coup and deported to Brazil. continued political maneuvering supported by competing factions in the military eventually brought Arab nationalist and socialist elements to power. 
Syria's political instability during the years after the 1954 coup, the parallelism of Syrian and Egyptian policies, and the appeal of Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser's leadership in the wake of the 1956 Suez crisis created support in Syria for union with Egypt. On February 1, 1958, the two countries merged to create the United Arab Republic, and all Syrian political parties ceased overt activities.
The union was not a success, however. Following a military coup on September 28, 1961, Syria seceded, re-establishing itself as the Syrian Arab Republic. Instability characterized the next 18 months. Later on March 8, 1963, Al Ba'ath Party took over, which had been active in Syria and other Arab countries since the late 1940s.

Who's responsible for terrorist attacks and the suffering of the Syrian people ?

Obama signed a secret order authorizing U.S. support for Syrian terrorists seeking to depose Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his government.  Obama’s order, approved earlier this year and known as an intelligence “finding,” broadly permits the CIA and other U.S. agencies to provide support that could help the terrorists oust Assad.  C.I.A. officers are operating secretly in southern Turkey. The weapons, including automatic rifles, rocket-propelled grenades, ammunition and some antitank weapons, are being funneled mostly across the Turkish border by way of a shadowy network of intermediaries including Syria’s Muslim Brotherhood and paid for by Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar. The United States is setting up joint military, intelligence and medical working teams with Israel, Turkey and Jordan.

British Foreign Secretary William Hague said Britain would step up its support for the armed groups in Syria, providing them with an additional £5 million (US$7.8 million). The money is used for bomb attacks in Syria.

Belgian weapons and jihadists in Syria

August 3, 2012

The Belgian State Security "has not confirmed" the rumor that Belgian jihadists are fighting in Syria. Thursday, the newspapers 'Het Belang van Limburg' and 'Gazet van Antwerpen' argued the opposite: "The State Security confirmed the presence of" Belgium".

It is uncommon, that the Belgian State Security issued a statement Thursday to correct statements that were attributed to him: "The State Security (...) confirms that Syria is a destination for international Islamist fighters. But the State Security has not been confirmed (...) that there are Belgians among them. "    In short, if the Security denies to have confirmed does not mean - this is important - it can deny the information.

Originally Flemish newspapers relied on a report by Reuters, dated July 31, citing statements from "several rebel commanders in the north-west Syria," according to which "Muslims in Great Britain, Belgium and the United States had joined the Free Syrian Army (SLA)". On July 13th, Reuters pointed out a flood "of thousands of assault rifles Belgian FN FAL was in the hands of the rebels".

In its annual reports, the Belgian State Security explains how and why she follows people attracted by fighting abroad: there was attention for Iraq, then, from 2010, to the movement towards Pakistan-Afghanistan border area; Finally, most recently, to new locations: "If the Afghan-Pakistan area, more than Iraq, was still popular in 2010 with the majority of volunteers for jihad", the Belgian State Security wrote in his latest report, "some of them began to plot their way to Yemen, Somalia and the Caucasus". And Syria now? "Obviously. Where they are beaten, those who return and who actually participated in the fighting have gained knowledge on how to handle weapons, strategy and tactics of war," noted the Belgian State Security yesterday. "This is the central reason for the Belgian concern".

Who's responsible for terrorist attacks and the suffering of the Syrian people ?

Obama signed a secret order authorizing U.S. support for Syrian terrorists seeking to depose Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his government.  Obama’s order, approved earlier this year and known as an intelligence “finding,” broadly permits the CIA and other U.S. agencies to provide support that could help the terrorists oust Assad.  C.I.A. officers are operating secretly in southern Turkey. The weapons, including automatic rifles, rocket-propelled grenades, ammunition and some antitank weapons, are being funneled mostly across the Turkish border by way of a shadowy network of intermediaries including Syria’s Muslim Brotherhood and paid for by Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar. The United States is setting up joint military, intelligence and medical working teams with Israel, Turkey and Jordan.

British Foreign Secretary William Hague said Britain would step up its support for the armed groups in Syria, providing them with an additional £5 million (US$7.8 million). The money is used for bomb attacks in Syria.

Middle East Peace Process: Syrian terrorists in Jordan and Lebanon

erdogan.friend.of.Israel.jpg

The Middle East Peace Process

Sep 22, 2012

The Syrian terrorists said Saturday they 'moved their command center from Turkey to Syria with the aim of uniting rebels and speeding up the fall of President Bashar Assad's regime'.

The terrorists still have to rely on Turkey as a rear base for supplies and reinforcements.

The Turkish military deployed three howitzers and an anti-aircraft gun near Tal Abyad, a Turkish-Syrian border, the Turkish news agency Dogan reported. Dogan video showed at least three large military trucks towing the guns along a highway.

Lebanon's army said Syrian terrorists attacked one of its positions in the mountain town of Arsal and that its forces drove the terrorists away without causing casualties.

On Syria's border with Jordan, Syrian terrorists assaulted a Syrian air defense base and were pushed back. A Jordanian government minister said Jordanian border guards captured several gunmen on the Jordanian side.

The fighting in and around the Syrian border town of Nasib continued until dawn Saturday, Jordan's state-run news agency Petra said.

The problems with Syrian terrorists in Jordan and Lebanon and Syria are part of the so called 'Middle East Peace Process Project'.

Information about this project can be found at The Washington Institute for Near East Policy. The Washington Institute was founded in 1985 with the goal of 'helping advance U.S. interests in the Middle East'...

Lebanese President Michel Sleiman.jpgLebanese President Affirms Need to Control Borders... Lebanese Army: FSA Militia Members Attacked Army Center in Ersal

Sep 22, 2012

BEIRUT, (SANA) – Lebanese President Michel Sleiman affirmed the need to control the Lebanese-Syrian borders and not allowing the establishment of a so-called buffer zone in Lebanon or making it a base, passage or staging area for smuggling weapons and militants.

In a statement issued by the Presidential Palace on Saturday, Sleiman called on the Lebanese people – particularly in border areas – to support the Lebanese army's efforts to secure the borders, lauding the Lebanese army's work to protect Lebanese territories in Arsal area, adding that this is part of the efforts to keep Lebanon neutral to others' conflicts in the region.

Lebanese Army: Big Numbers of FSA Militia Members Attacked Army Center in Ersal

Earlier  on Saturday, the Lebanese Army said that big numbers of gunmen affiliated to the so-called "Free Syrian Army'' militias attacked a center for the Lebanese army in Ersal area, but no casualties were reported.

The army said in a statement that ''It is the second time in less than a week that members affiliated to the so-called 'Free Syrian Army' militias entered the Lebanese territories in Ersal area, attacking overnight a center for the Lebanese army,'' adding that no casualties were reported in the attack.

The statement said that reinforcements were called in to the area and chased the gunmen who fled after the attack to the mountains and border towns and villages.

The statement said that the Lebanese army won't tolerate using the Lebanese territories to involve Lebanon in the internal events of neighboring countries, renewing resolve to protect the Lebanese territories and respond to any attack.

A source in the Lebanese army denied news that Lebanese soldiers were detained by gunmen in Ersal.

Suez Crisis: Speech by President Gamal Abdel Nasser

nasser-photo.jpgSpeech by President Gamal Abdel Nasser of the United Arab Republic

15 September 1956

In these decisive days in the history of mankind, these days in which truth struggles to have itself recognized in international chaos where powers of evil domination and imperialism have prevailed, Egypt stands firmly to preserve her sovereignty. Your country stands solidly and staunchly to preserve her dignity against imperialistic schemes of a number of nations who have uncovered their desires for domination and supremacy.

In these days and in such circumstances Egypt has resolved to show the world that when small nations decide to preserve their sovereignty, they will do that all right and that when these small nations are fully determined to defend their rights and maintain their dignity, they will undoubtedly succeed in achieving their ends. . . .

I am speaking in the name of every Egyptian Arab and in the name of all free countries and of all those who believe in liberty and are ready to defend it. I am speaking in the name of principles proclaimed by these countries in the Atlantic Charter. But they are now violating these principles and it has become our lot to shoulder the responsibility of reaffirming and establishing them anew. . . .

We have tried by all possible means to cooperate with those countries which claim to assist smaller nations and which promised to collaborate with us but they demanded their fees in advance. This we refused so they started to fight with us. They said they will pay toward building the High Dam and then they withdrew their offer and cast doubts on the Egyptian economy. Are we to declaim [disclaim?] our sovereign right? Egypt insists her sovereignty must remain intact and refuses to give up any part of that sovereignty for the sake of money.

Egypt nationalized the Egyptian Suez Canal company. When Egypt granted the concession to de Lesseps it was stated in the concession between the Egyptian Government and the Egyptian company that the company of the Suez Canal is an Egyptian company subject to Egyptian authority. Egypt nationalized this Egyptian company and declared freedom of navigation will be preserved.

But the imperialists became angry. Britain and France said Egypt grabbed the Suez Canal as if it were part of France or Britain. The British Foreign Secretary forgot that only two years ago he signed an agreement stating the Suez Canal is an integral part of Egypt.

Egypt declared she was ready to negotiate. But as soon as negotiations began threats and intimidations started. . . .

Eden stated in the House of Commons there shall be no discrimination between states using the canal. We on our part reaffirm that and declare there is no discrimination between canal users. He also said Egypt shall not be allowed to succeed because that would spell success for Arab nationalism and would be against their policy, which aims at the protection of Israel.

Today they are speaking of a new association whose main objective would be to rob Egypt of the canal and deprive her of rightful canal dues. Suggestions made by Eden in the House of Commons which have been backed by France and the United States are a clear violation of the 1888 convention, since it is impossible to have two bodies organizing navigation in the canal. . . .

By stating that by succeeding, Abdel Nasser would weaken Britain : s stand against Arab nationalism, Eden is in fact admitting his real objective is not Abdel Nasser as such but rather to defeat Arab nationalism and crush its cause. Eden speaks and finds his own answer. A month ago he let out the cry that be was after Abdel Nasser. Today the Egyptian people are fully conscious of their sovereign rights and Arab nationalism is fully awakened to its new destiny....

Those who attack Egypt will never leave Egypt alive. We shall fight a regular war, a total war, a guerrilla war. Those who attack Egypt will soon realize they brought disaster upon themselves. He who attacks Egypt attacks tile whole Arab world. They say in their papers the -whole thing will be over in forty-eight hours. They do not know how strong we really are.

We believe in international law. But we will never submit. We shall show the world bow a small country can stand in the face of great powers threatening with armed might. Egypt might be a small power but she is great inasmuch as she has faith in her power and convictions. I feel quite certain every Egyptian shares the same convictions as I do and believes in everything I am stressing now.

We shall defend our freedom and independence to the last drop of our blood. This is the stanch feeling of every Egyptian. The whole Arab nation will stand by us in our common fight against aggression and domination. Free peoples, too, people who are really free will stand by us and support us against the forces of tyranny….

9.11 and the CNN-effect

9-11-4.jpgCNN Cable News

CNN Cable News Network, commonly referred to by its initialism CNN, is a major news cable television network founded in 1980 by Ted Turner. The network is now owned by Time Warner; the news network is a division of the Turner Broadcasting System. CNN introduced the idea of 24-hour television news coverage, celebrating its 25th anniversary on June 1, 2005.

In terms of cumulative (Cume) Nielsen ratings or "unique viewers", CNN rates as America's number one cable news source. While the news network has numerous affiliates, CNN primarily broadcasts from its headquarters at the CNN Center in Atlanta, the Time Warner Center in New York City, and studios in Washington, DC. As of December 2004, the network is available in 88.2 million U.S. households and more than 890,000 American hotel rooms. The U.S version of their broadcast is also shown in Canada. Globally, CNN airs through CNN International and has combined branded networks and services that are available to more than 1.5 billion people in over 212 countries and territories.

The Gulf War

The first Persian Gulf War in 1991 was a watershed event for CNN that catapulted the network past the "big three" American networks for the first time in its history, largely due to an unprecedented, historical scoop: CNN was the only news outlet with the ability to communicate outside Iraq during the initial hours of the American bombing campaign, with live reports from the al-Rashid Hotel in Baghdad by reporters Bernard Shaw, John Holliman, and Peter Arnett.

The Gulf War experience brought CNN some much sought-after legitimacy and made household names of previously obscure (and infamously low-paid) reporters. Many of these reporters now comprise CNN's "old guard." Bernard Shaw became CNN's chief anchor until his retirement in 2001. Others include then-Pentagon correspondent Wolf Blitzer (now host of The Situation Room and Late Edition with Wolf Blitzer) and international correspondent Christiane Amanpour. Amanpour's presence in Iraq was caricatured by actress Nora Dunn as the ruthless reporter "Adriana Cruz" in the film Three Kings (1999). Time Warner later produced a television movie, Live from Baghdad, about the network's coverage of the first Gulf War, which aired on HBO.

The CNN effect

Coverage of the first Gulf War and other crises of the early 1990s (particularly the infamous "Black Hawk Down" Battle of Mogadishu) led officials at the Pentagon to coin the term "the CNN effect" to describe the perceived impact of real time, 24-hour news coverage on the decision-making processes of the American government.

CNN claims to be the first network to have broken news of the September 11 attacks. Anchor Carol Lin was on the air to deliver the first public report of the event. She broke into a commercial at 8:49 a.m. ET and said:

'This just in. You are looking at obviously a very disturbing live shot there. That is the World Trade Center, and we have unconfirmed reports this morning that a plane has crashed into one of the towers of the World Trade Center. CNN Center right now is just beginning to work on this story, obviously calling our sources and trying to figure out exactly what happened, but clearly something relatively devastating happening this morning there on the south end of the island of Manhattan'.

War against Syria: The Syrian Golan

Golan.Syrian families evacuating the Golan Heights during the 1967 War.jpg

The Syrian Golan is a region in southwest Syria which was occupied on June 5, 1967 by Israeli forces. The Golan's overall land mass is 1,860 square kilometers, which is approximately 1 percent of Syria's total area, about 1,500 square kilometers remains under Israeli occupation. Before this Israeli occupation, the Golan was home to over 140,000 Syrians, most of whom were driven out of their homeland and into Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) status. Till this day, almost 40 years later, the Syrian inhabitants of the Golan are still unable to return to their homes, towns and cities. Today these Syrians exceed 500,000 people. Some Syrians remained in the Occupied Syrian Golan and continue to live in small villages amounting to approximately 20,000 Syrians. Most of the Syrian cities, towns and villages in the Golan were destroyed by Israeli occupation forces, who in turn have built over 40 illegal settlements despite all international condemnation. Israel continues not only to occupy the Syrian Golan but to also destroy its ancient ruins and geopolitical atmosphere for the sole purpose of cleansing the Golan of its Syrian people and their history.

In October 1973 during the October War, Syria attempted to liberate its Golan from Israeli occupation. Syria succeeded after the disengagement agreements to regain a strip of territory that included the main city and capital of the Golan, Quneitra. When Quneitraian citizens returned to their liberated homes, they were traumatized and stunned to find that every home, building, Mosque and Church in the city had been deliberately demolished by Israeli bulldozers and dynamite. Even the city's graves had been dug and robbed by the Israelis, all just days before the Israeli withdrawal, as documented by the BBC and others. The city remains destroyed as living proof of Israeli aggression towards civilians. On December 14, 1981, Israel annexed, the Occupied Syrian Golan; the international community responded with Security Council Resolution 497 (1981), which unanimously called this move, “null and void” and not one country has legitimized it. Since then, every year the U.N. passes General Assembly resolution titled “The Occupied Syrian Golan” which reaffirms the illegality of the Israeli occupation and annexation...

In 1991, peace talks between Syria and Israel started at the Madrid Conference in which the return of the Syrian Golan was a central topic. However, negotiations came to a dead-end due to Israel 's refusal to withdraw completely from the Syrian Golan. To this day, Israel refuses to implement U.N. Security Council Resolutions 242 (1967) and 338 (1973); which call for the complete withdrawal from all the Arab territories occupied in 1967, including the Occupied Syrian Golan; as well as Security Council Resolution 479 (1981), which confirms the illegality of Israel 's annexation of the Golan. Syrians continue to wait for the murderous and illegal occupation of their land to come to an end. Syrian diplomacy has launched many calls in order to resume peace talks. Syrian President, Bashar Al-Assad, has sent several messages in this regard. However, the provocative visit of former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon to the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem , which sparked the 2000 Palestinian Uprising, the U.S. invasion of Iraq in 2003, along with Israeli aggression against the Palestinians and Lebanon in 2006 has widened the gap and complicated the picture.
