Who’s listening?

February 24th, 2007 · 2 Comments · Uncategorized

Are they the only ones who’ll listen? Apart from an extremist who wants to make Syria a religious state, and the former deputy of a man he calls a thug (the deputy with the blood of 10,000 people from Hama on his hands). Beggars can’t be choosers, I guess.

    I read notes of Ammar Abdelhamid who considers himselfe to be secular and liberal , i found him to be able to forgive Khadam with all his coruption only because he is Sunni while blaming Bashar Asad for things he has nothing to do with just because he is an Alawat, that is not a Syrian leader ,that is a sunni leader who does not belong in Syria ,it also seems that mr Abdelhamid was offerd to help when Bashar became president as he was his schoolmate but he elected exile , many of us if given the opportionety to help they will jump at the chance to help Syria , like what they say in the US when the president calls you for public service you should not refuse but apparently Americans love their country more than Syrian opposition leaders .

    I once asked Ammar about the platform of the Syrian opposition and their plans for the economy legal reform and the kind of politecal reform they suggest and a way to avoid religous or sectarian voting , that was monthes ago , I am still waiting. They have no plans beyond (WE are Better ).How can the Syrian people support people while not knowing where these people are going to lead them the examples of Iraq ,Lebanon and Egypt are hard to swallow as examples.

    I now think of people such as Abdelhamid as rebels without a clue. His blog waxes lyrical and I’m sure strikes a cord with people in the West who have no idea what life in Syria is like. He’s pretentious, unrepresentative of Syrians and (at least for me) he’s just too Americanised with that ridiculous pony tail. Lenin would recognise people like him as “useful idiots”. It looks like the Americans think so too.
