Human Shields to protect Syria against a possible war on Damascus.
The Human Shield Campaign has already called on all the anti-war campaigners and activists to support the prevention of a gruesome war against Syria and even people from the West already travelled to Syria in order to support the human shields campaign to protect the country against American bombs.
While Syrian citizens and especially athletes and artists have launched the “Over our Dead Bodies” campaign to protect possible US targets in and around the Syrian capital against an American bombardment that will bomb Syria back to the Middle Ages, also foreign activists and the Human Shields campaign, known from the times of the Iraq war, have launched similar campaigns to protect the Arab country with their own bodies against a possible US-led airstrike on Syria.
Now, there is also a new campaign in the Egyptian capital Cairo that is similar to the human shields campaign and should support the participators of the human shields campaign in Syria. The campaign in Egypt is called “Here is Damascus from Cairo” and was launched to motivate the youths of Egyptian to travel to Syria and to participate in the human shield protests to protect the Arab country against a possible US-led war.
Further, the Egyptian youths should go to Syria and join the human shields campaigns there to express their support for Syria in the face of the increased possibility of a US-led military strike against Damascus.
According to the coordinator of the “Here is Damascus from Cairo” campaign, Mr. Ibrahim al-Jaoushi, they are “conjuring the soul of the martyr Joul Jammal who came from Syria to save the Egyptian city of Port Said during the tripartite aggression on Egypt in 1956.”
Ibrahim al-Jayoushi, the responsible coordinator behind the call in Egypt to join the human shields campaign in Syria in order to prevent another baseless and senseless war on a country in the Middle East, also said in a recent interview that they will travel to Syria “as the defenders of its lands.” However, he almost seem to regret that the Egyptian youths are not the first who go to Syria in order to form human shields against US bombs.
Of course, he does not really regret it. The more people participate in this probably dangerous action in case the US really starts its war on Syria, although it’s actually more an Israeli-Saudi war against Damascus, the better it is. But as stated, the formation of human shields against a bombardments of any military force and to protect a certain area or a country such as Syria is dangerous.
The coordinator in the Egyptian capital Cairo, Ibrahim al-Jayoushi, explained in his statements about the “Here is Damascus from Cairo” campaign, that they are not the first to do so as there are youths from Italy who preceded us in heading there and forming human shields.”
And not only people from Italy went already to Syria to join the formations of human shields against the possible US-led bombardment of the Arab country, but also people from other Western countries are already in Syria or on their way – or plan it to join the human shields campaign, mainly in the Syrian capital, Damascus, of course.
Beside the coordinator of the Egyptian campaign to motivate the youths of the North African country to join the human shields in Syria, also the media spokesman for the campaign in Egypt, Mr. Hisham Habareer, made same statements about the campaign and the US war plans against Damascus.
The media spokesman of the “Here is Damascus from Cairo” campaign in Egypt said that they are trying to do the right thing, the thing that they “have failed to do in 2003 during the US invasion of Baghdad.” Hisham Habareer added to the statement that they call upon all the Arab youth to preserve the Arab soil and to protect Syria from any US-Western desecration.
