Syria after Nine Years of War



Picture of destruction after war

Nine years after the start of the conflict, Syrians still suffer war effects, lack of reconstruction, and economic crisis. Depressions and serious illnesses multiply, as so many symptoms of an impossible return to normal.
The initial democratic revolution, carried by the breath of the Arab Spring, turned into a war with multiple ramifications. Undoubtedly over 500,000 dead, tens of thousands missing, arrested, tortured in regime prisons, and millions of displaced people and refugees in Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, or further afield.

The stigma of war

Today, this war is still raging in the province of Idlib, the last rebel entity in the country. But from Deraa, in the south, to Hassaké, in the northeast, the whole country continues to bear the stigma; collapsed buildings, mined fields, shut down factories, destroyed hospitals, and schools. War is everywhere, and is the first scene in the minds of people.

Food insecurity

Syrians had rationed gasoline and heating oil, and they are returning to the use of tickets for rice, sugar, oil, and tea. “A family is entitled to 4 kg of sugar per month at the subsidized price (250 LS) but must obtain supplies beyond that at the normal price (450 LS), and a small, trivial surgical operation costs three times the average salary,” says an Alepin.

Economic crisis

Elsewhere in Syria, the evidence gleaned agrees. Some of the Syrian families, who owned their homes, made some repairs. But we cannot talk much about reconstruction due to money issues.”With each military development, everything else slows down, and building priority is not even there: even in Damascus. People are mainly busy earning enough to buy their food.” Maher said, a 35 years old man living in Damascus.

Moreover, the international community with the hope imposed sanctions caused the collapse of the Syrian pound (LS). Nowadays, 1 dollar is exchanged for more than 1,200 pounds, almost three times the official rate set by the Central Bank.

The daily puzzle

A drop of water in an ocean of distress. The UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs estimates that 11.1 million Syrians (out of 17 million in total) need humanitarian assistance. About half of them are displaced people, forced to leave their homes.

Season changes, mainly Winter, and its freezing temperatures were particularly trying for them, whether they were crammed into camps, or overcrowded housing, they had no choice but to return home, to a building more or less destroyed.

A civil war with multiple ramifications

March 2011. First demonstrations in favor of democracy in Damascus, then in Deraa. Repressed by the regime, the protest turned into an armed rebellion. In July, the Free Syrian Army (ASL) was founded.

2012. The Democratic Union Party takes – with its armed wing, the People’s Protection Units (YPG) – control of the Kurdish regions.

2012 and 2013.  The rebels supported by Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, the United States, and France, seized most of the North and East. The Islamist or Salafist groups are gradually supplanting the ASL.

2014. Daesh seizes almost half of the country and proclaims the “caliphate”. The mainly Kurdish Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) take over, its capital, Rakka, supported by the international coalition on October 17, 2017.

2015. Russia enters the conflict in support of the regime. The Syrian army is victorious in Aleppo (December 2016), Homs and Deir Ez-Zor (2017), Ghouta, and Deraa (2018), while waiting for Idlib.

Russia’s Intervention and the Process of Preparing the Constitution in Syria

Russia’s relations with Western imperialists were in their worst period after the Cold War. The expectation that Hillary Clinton would win the next presidential election led most of the diplomats in the region to assume that there would be limited cooperation between Russia and the USA in the foreseeable future in Syria. Thus, Russia became a key country for the future of Syria. This made Syria dependent on Russia. For example, the Syrian government is not the only political actor that determines the extent and duration of Iran’s presence in Syria. In addition, Iran is becoming more politically and economically dependent on Russia and China to the extent that it loses its chance to compromise with the US regime.

In 2015, while military developments continued in northern Syria, Russia took steps to prepare a new constitution in Syria. On December 19, the UN Security Council called for an urgent ceasefire; then a political negotiation process took place. In this framework, Russia quietly launched a constitutional process that guarantees its “presence” in the country. let’s say that Russia supported the Syrian regime to protect its strategic interests and to try to become an important political power in the Middle East while fighting against terrorism.

Russia’s relationship with the Syrian regime

During the Syria peace talks in Astana in January 2017, the Russian government announced a draft constitution for Syria. This draft constitution has been long spoken since Vladimir Putin announced that a new constitution is critical to finding a political solution to the crisis in Syria. Almost all opposition groups strongly opposed Russia’s proposal.

 In response, Russia suggested that this draft was merely a “guide” for the peace process. According to the draft, Russia’s relationship with the Syrian regime was not only strategic but also carried an ideological content. Accordingly, Russia seemed to continue to block any Western plan to force Assad out of power. One of the most important consequences in Turkey and Saudi Arabia was directly affected by the draft-backed opposition.

In March 2019, the Syrian regime announced that the constitution should emphasize the country’s sovereignty. It is clear that a new constitution as a “political solution” is one of the main issues of Syria as well as the imperialists and their representatives in the Middle East.

Is There Any Hope for Peace in Syria?

Like the communists of a country whose role we have described above in the Syrian tragedy, we want to underline several points for long-term peace in Syria and a wider region.

The main security threat in our region is NATO, the USA, and the forces that insist to cooperate with them. When all imperialists and occupying forces withdraw from this region, with the removal of their troops and paramilitary forces, peace in Syria will only take place. All foreign bases belonging to the imperialist countries in the region should be closed. Open or confidential, all imperialist agreements must be terminated. An egalitarian system based on the expropriation of assets and central planning should be established.

It is equally vital that peace in Syria should be established on a secular basis, without any superiority of any ethnic or religious group over others.

Only the Syrian people can decide on the future of Syria, and this right belongs only to them.

To the peoples of the world: Israel is Carrying out a holocaust against Palestinian families



Israel is carrying out a holocaust against Palestinian families.

Yes, Israel is not sending Palestinians to gas chambers. But Israel is bringing Auschwitz and Mauthhausen to Palestinian homes, neighborhood, hospitals and mosques.

The title of this brief article is not a hyperbole or a dramatic overstatement meant to attract attention or gain sympathy. It is rather a reflection of reality.

Indeed, if a holocaust is about annihilating people, especially civilians and Palestinian families, the Israeli army, the Wehrmacht of our time, has been exterminating entire Palestinian families-the father, the mother and all the children.

We are not speaking about one isolated incident or a few incidents where one stray missile hit a home inadvertently or children killed as a result of collateral damage.

We are rather talking about carrying out a real holocaust against Palestinian families, an official policy endorsed and pursued by the government of Israel to wipe out numerous Palestinian households for the purpose of bringing the Palestinians to their knees.

This is Israel’s way of wreaking shock and awe on the defenseless and helpless Palestinians.

So far, more than 25 thousand entire Gaza households have been targeted by Israeli bombing. More than 12 thousands have been killed half of them are children and women.

Just imagine your own family being annihilated by a missile launched from high altitude. This nightmare has effectively become a routine experience in Gaza.

Israel today is emulating the Nazis and other criminal offenders throughout history. Don’t invoke the mantra of anti-Semitism. In the final analysis, when Jews think, behave and act like the Nazis thought, behaved and acted, they (the Jews) become Nazis themselves, pure and simple.

Yes, I do recognize there are many kind-hearted Jews who reject this Nazi-like savagery. None the less, we must call the spade a spade. These atrocities are being enthusiastically supported by the vast majority of Israelis, including ordinary people, intellectuals and rabbis. Israel-2023 does have much in common with Nazi-Germany. Claiming otherwise would be both dishonest and malicious.

Real holocaust

Israel, a notorious professional liar whose agents control western media outlets from Sydney to California, is misleading the international community as to what is really happening in the Gaza Strip.

A regional military superpower thanks to unrestricted American backing and support, Israel is simply waging a war of extermination against a thoroughly persecuted people whose only “crime” is its enduring vigor and longing for freedom from the shackles of Talmudic Jewish Nazism, a Satanic ideology which views all humanity-save Jews-as animals whose lives have absolutely no sanctity.

There is no doubt that the ongoing Israeli rampage of murder and terror is an expression of that genocidal Talmudic mentality. It is a mindset that is even more nefarious than the Nazi ideology.

We Palestinians have been at the receiving end of Jewish criminality and murderousness for several decades. We know it too well and need no one to give us lectures on “Israel’s civility and humanity”

In the final analysis, a country that murders thousands of children and other innocent civilians rather knowingly and deliberately in order to create deterrence is neither civilized nor humane. It is tantamount to fornicating with truth to call Israel humane and civilized.

The truth of the matter is that Israel is a diabolical Judeo-Nazi entity that has much in common with the Third Rich.

Yes, Israel is not sending Palestinians to gas chambers. But Israel is bringing Auschwitz to Palestinian homes, neighborhoods and streets. Israel is carrying out a real holocaust against innocent Palestinian families.

This is not really a war. War is fought between armies. The Palestinians don’t have an army, or navy or air force. The Palestinians simply can not protect their own children from overwhelming barbarianism, played out in full view of the entire world.

Yes, there have been projectiles fired on Jewish colonies from the Gaza Strip, but these projectiles are essentially innocuous from the military view point as evident from the nearly zero casualties incurred by Israelis.

Indeed, when there is one dead on one side and 300 on the other side, including 50 children and babies, in addition thousands of maimed civilians and swathes of pornographic destruction of property, we are not really talking about war, even an asymmetrical war. We are actually talking about a real massacre, a massacre that is reminiscent of the time when the Nazis ganged up on European Jewry 70 years ago.

This very real massacre, holocaust, wouldn’t have been carried out had it not been for the flaccidity and leniency and silence displayed in Israel’s face by the bulk of the international community.

This is not to mention the connivance, collusion and conspiratorial roles played by several criminal states and governments, including the United States, a majority of European governments and especially the whore-like Sissi regime in Cairo which is shamelessly and brazenly siding with Israel against the Palestinian people.

But never mind, another massacre, another blitzkrieg, another conspiracy won’t finish our people off. It is our kismet that we must die in order to survive.

But those in Washington and London and Cairo who are watching rather passively, probably gleefully, as our children are being incinerated and murdered at the hands of the children, grand children and great-grand children of the holocaust, will one day pay the price for their murderous complicity and ignominy.

We will not forgive or forget.

Israel: A criminal state par excellance



Israel: a criminal state par excellance

In its exaggerated self-infatuation and excessive narcissism, Israel, a criminal state par excellence, often claims it is light upon mankind.

Zionist Jews, who falsely claim allegiance to the prophetic traditions of ancient Israel, are actually mostly atheists.

In fact, Zionism has more in common with the most infamous paragons of evil throughout history than with such Hebrew luminaries as the Prophet Moses, Aaron, Jacob, Joseph, David, and Solomon.

Indeed, ever since its misbegotten birth in 1948, a birth fraught with crimes against humanity, Israel’s modus operandi has been an uninterrupted series of atrocities, oppression, persecution, inequity, and racism.

Thus, Israel, A criminal state par excellence, is also a great falsifier of truth, history by claiming a higher moral ground vis-à-vis the Palestinians, its largely-unwept victims who are still crying to the seventh heaven for justice.

Israel is already starving and tormenting 1.6 million Gazans, denying them food, clean water, and other necessities of life. The 17-year draconian siege is apparently meant to punish Gazans for electing Hamas which simply refuses to recognize Israel for religious and moral reasons. The international community  sought to overlook Israel’s  real crimes against humanity inflicted repeatedly  on  some two million helpless Palestinians languishing under a N-a-z-i-like siege imposed and maintained by Israel.

Israel portrays herself as a beacon of light in a sea of dictatorship, tyranny, and oppression,

What Israel, a criminal state par Excellance, refuses to tell the world, however, is the fact that the Jewish state through its ubiquitous tentacles in America, Europe and elsewhere to enable, shield, sustain, and support tyrannical regimes in the region such as the Sissi police state in Egypt, the feudal regimes in Saudi Arabia, UAE and Bahrain.

Israel, a notorious professional liar whose agents control western media outlets from Sydney to California, is misleading the international community as to what is really happening in Jerusalem and in the Gaza Strip.

Israel, ruled by supremacist and megalomaniac Jews who think that no country or entity under the sun has a right to criticize Israel’s appalling maltreatment of the Palestinians, believes it has an unending free season on its victims.

Those are the Nazi-minded ideologues who are indoctrinated in Talmudic Jewish supremacy and who believe that the non-Jews lives have no sanctity , those are the Talmudic thugs who believe that the Palestinians must either be expelled or massacred .

As to its victims, Israel seeks always to demonize and dehumanize them so that the world will react indifferently if not callously when Israel murders them, expels them from their homes, steals their land and property as well as demolish their homes, a nearly daily callous practice the state of the Jews carries out in the West Bank.

Israel was born in sin. It will always be a sinful state, no matter what we read in the New York Times and the Washington Post or what we see on CNN and Fox News.

World passively watching as Israel perpetrates open-ended massacre in Gaza



The Israeli army, which can be called the Jewish Wehrmacht given its Nazi-like behavior, continues to pound the Gaza Strip from ground, sea and air. According to sources in Gaza, virtually all targets hit so far are civilians.

As many as 3500 Palestinians, virtually all of them civilians, have been reported killed so far. Thousands others were injured, many sustaining life-threatening wounds.

The scenes of mutilated and maimed children, some of whose bodies are seen protruding through the rubble of their homes, destroyed by missiles fired by American-supplied F-16 fighter jets, seem to verify the view that Israel is targeting Palestinian civilians in Gaza knowingly and deliberately.

Israeli leaders and military officials are openly gloating over the high death toll among Palestinian civilians. They blame Hamas for the orgy of killing. However, virtually all Palestinians don’t buy the Israeli logice.

As we all know, this is not the first time Israel indulges in such war crimes.

Israel has always been a regular perpetrator of war crimes . Indeed, one would exaggerate very little by arguing that Israel itself is a war crime or a crime against humanity.

I am not going to spend time refuting Israeli hasbara lies, blaming Hamas for the latest conflagration. Having been a vigilant observer of Israeli behavior for several decade , I can honestly argue that honesty and Israel can not really be used in the same sentence. Israel and honesty are an eternal oxymoron.

Read Also: The Myth of Israeli Democracy

As always, Israel violated the uneasy truce reached through Egyptian mediation in 2002. Israeli leaders, proceeding from the Talmudic ideology which views all non-Jews as lesser human beings or virtual animals, don’t feel bound by agreements or treaties reached with “Goyem.

People in the west, long duped and brainwashed by Zionist propaganda, may raise they eyebrows when reading these words. But we who live with these Judeo-Nazis and have been at the receiving end of their murderousness and evilness know better.

We don’t need and won’t accept lectures about the “humanity and civility” of the N-a-z-i-s of our time.

Hamas and other Palestinian resistance groups in Gaza don’t constitute an existential threat to Israel, which has one of the strongest military machines in the world.

Read Also: Hamas: A convenient red herring for Jewish Nazism

In fact, the claim that Gaza is threatening Israel is infinitely ridiculous. The thoroughly-starved and hermetically blockaded Gazans have a hard time feeding their children, let alone pose any meaningful threat to the N-a-z-i Germany of our time, a pugnacious state that more or less tightly controls the most powerful country under the sun, the United States.

It is sad and lamentable that a country of 320 million has allowed itself to be enslaved by Zionist pressure groups, hell-bent on prostituting America and eviscerating it of any semblance of morality for Israel’s sake.

Palestinians have resist Jewish terror

But the Palestinians can not take their very survival for granted. They can’t rely on the so-called international community to shield them against Jewish N-a-z-i-s-m.

Indeed, if the Palestinians don’t defend themselves, who is going to defend them? Obama? Merkel? Or Puten?

Hence, the valiant Palestinian determination to put up a semblance of resistance to the Jewish Wehrmacht. The Israeli assault on Gaza is not an assault on Hamas; It is rather a nefarious aggression against the entire Palestinian people. It is intended to break our people’s will to resist Israeli Nazism. Pure and simple.

To put the matter in a nutshell, the Palestinians in Gaza are simply defending themselves against an overwhelming evil force that is hell bent on ethnically cleansing them and stealing their motherland. Our fighters don’t fire their home-made missiles on Israel because they want to spill Jewish blood. They do it because this is the only means they possess to deter a cannibalistic enemy that can only feel good if and when it spills Palestinian blood.

Besides, the problem with Israel didn’t begin last week or last year.

Just remember that many of the people being now bombarded and murdered by the Jewish Wehrmacht are actually children, grand children and great grand children of the original Palestinian refugees that Israel massacred or brutally expelled out of their homes when the evil state was created in Palestine in 1948.

Hence, the Palestinians in Gaza can not really be terrorists if only because they were never the initiator of violence and terror. The Palestinians were living peaceably in their towns and villages, mostly leading a simple pastoral life until waves of Khazari Jews, who had no real connection with the ancient Israelites, invaded Palestine with the aid of Western countries, especially the evil empire, the United Kingdome.

Yes, it was Britain that put the venomous Jewish snake in the bed of the Palestinian child. Britain, as Noam Chomsky wisely said, can not claim innocence or argue that it didn’t know the snake was so poisonous.

Gaza Massacre: Surviving by dying

Today, Palestinians are sacrificing their lives for their freedom, dignity and survival. This is what they have always been doing from time immemorial. We are very much children of martyrs who were themselves children of martyrs. We survived despite a harsh history of plots and conspiracies that aimed to eradicate us as a people from the face of earth.

We in Gaza will survive the latest Israeli blitz as well

However, the world community ought to feel ashamed for watching the Nazi Germany of our time gang up on a defenseless people in Gaza whose only crime is that it is not part of “the holy tribe,”

This conspicuously immoral world , which doesn’t respect any modicum of respect, will surely have a precarious future. It will face ultimate demise.
