Syria: Countering Sectarian Apologetics for Imperialist Sponsored Bloodshed

Syria: Countering Sectarian Apologetics for Imperialist Sponsored Bloodshed

By Jay Tharappel According to Michael Karadjis’ latest article published on the 17th of February titled ‘Assad Regime Responsible for Rise in Religious Sectarianism’, it is the secular Syrian government that is responsible for the rise in sectarianism, and not the actual bloodthirsty insurgents of all factions who have earned an international reputation for their sectarian brutality. The main theme of Karadjis’ article is his argument that the sectarian hatred endemic among most, if not all rebel factions, is primarily a predictable outgrowth of the over-representation of Alawis in the Syrian government. He refers to the Syrian state as a “family run” “Alawite regime”, which is nothing more than a lazy cliché that serves to transform the story of a complex nation and its political history into a generic caricature that ultimately serves imperial interests. There are many who support the so-called revolution who wouldn’t go this far, or who would at least balance this viewpoint with an emphasis on the heavy funding provided to the insurgency by the Saudi & Qatari regimes, or the vicious propaganda of oil-money sponsored Salafi clerics calling for Bilad ash-Sham (the Levant) to be cleansed of religious minorities. According to Karadjis these explanations are peripheral as it’s the “Alawite dominated” regime that supposedly constitutes the original source of sectarianism.

Syria’s Assad Performs Eid Adha Prayers in Damascus

Syrian president Dr. Bashar Al-Assad, and as accustomed on each occasion, performs Eid Adha prayers in Mrs. Hassiba Mosque in Dummar suburb of Damascus, the Syrian capital early today. Surrounded by citizens and received by officials, the Syrian president performed the prayers and exchanged greetings with the worshipers at the mosque, the prayer was headed and the Eid sermon was preached by Dr. Muhammad Tawfiq Ramadan al-Bouti, the son of martyr top Islam scholar Dr. Muhammad Saeed Ramadan al-Bouti and head of the Levant Scholars Union. The sermon emphasized on the greatness of Islam, the religion of knowledge and civilization, which calls for worshiping God with wisdom and good instructions and to argue with the disbelievers in a way that is the best, as the holy Quran clearly orders in Surat An-Naĥl, verse 16:125. The great religion of Islam that preaches with good rewards and ease on the people their living hardship not the opposite, as the Hadiths of prophet Muhammad peace be upon him clearly instructs. The Syrian president’s public appearing and mingling with his own people comes as continuing refutes to all of what western mainstream media and officials and their regional stooges were struggling to paint a picture of him. He’s the protector of his people and not ‘their killer’ from the real killers of the Syrians and not their protectors, the ‘humanitarian bastards’. The following video clip shows side of the prayers and the warm feelings the Syrian president exchange with his people, unlike the second part ... Read More »

Syria’s Chemical Weapons: OPCW meets on Friday

Russia prepared to participate in the transporting and destruction of Syria’s chemical weapons. The Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) is a so-called intergovernmental organisation with its headquarters in The Hague and will have an important role in the plans to put Syria’s chemical weapons under an international supervision and the following destruction of the chemical arsenals from Syria. Of course, the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) is certainly the most relevant organisation for the investigation and control of the stockpiles with chemical arms on Syrian soil.
