“Is Zahran Alloush in Amman?” by Aron Lund

by Aron Lund, editor of Syria in Crisis.

zahranAccording to rumors doing the rounds now, the Islam Army leader Mohammed Zahran Alloush has traveled to Amman to meet with foreign intelligence services and coordinate a purge of Islamic State and al-Qaeda elements in Syria.

Zahran Alloush is the most powerful rebel leader in the Damascus region. A Sunni Islamist of the salafi tendency, he is the son of a Saudi-based Syrian theologian named Abdullah Alloush. He ran into trouble with the authorities long before the uprising and was held in Seidnaia Prison until June 2011, when he was freed in an amnesty.

Upon his release, he immediately began to construct the armed faction now known as the Islam Army, which eventually grew into the most powerful militia in his hometown Douma. He now controls the Unified Command in the Eastern Ghouta, an area of satellite towns, suburbs, and farming communities on the outskirts of Damascus, which includes Douma. The Eastern Ghouta region has been under government siege for much of the uprising, turning it into an enclave; inside that enclave, Zahran Alloush is by far the most powerful leader. He is a controversial figure, however, and has been accused of silencing dissent by force.

The Unified Command and its member factions are mostly Sunni Islamists of some variety, but with considerable personal and even ideological differences between factions. Together, they have fought hard to root out the Islamic State from the Damascus region, but they have so far cooperated with al-Qaeda’s Nusra Front (which is not part of the Unified Command). The idea of starting a war with the Nusra Front would be controversial among other rebels. Many are wary of Nusra’s extremism and international agenda, but they see no urgent need for diverting resources to fighting the group, which is held in high esteem for its ability to inflict damage on Bashar al-Assad and the Islamic State alike. Being a very useful ally, it would also be a very dangerous enemy. Indeed, some rebels would probably feel inclined to support the Nusra Front rather than Alloush—which is precisely why the topic is so sensitive.

Zahran Alloush Goes to Turkey

In a surprise move, Zahran Alloush recently left his stronghold in the Douma to go to Turkey, where he has been meeting with foreign governments and other rebel leaders. According to recent reports, Abu Mohammed al-Fateh, who is the leader of another Ghouta-based Islamist group, the Ajnad al-Sham Islamic Union, has taken over after Zahran Alloush as head of the Ghouta Unified Command. I have asked two representatives of the Islam Army about this. One says it’s false and has been denied by all involved. The other says it is true but only a temporary arrangement, while Zahran is out of the country.

Whether or not he traveled on to Amman this week, Zahran Alloush’s trip abroad seems to be related to the recent Turkish-Saudi push to empower the Syrian rebels and reorganize the insurgency. A lot of things are happening at the moment, with the quietly Saudi-approved Cairo II conference for moderate opposition members slated to start in Cairo on Tuesday and another conference scheduled for after Ramadan in Riyadh. Meanwhile, President Khaled Khoja of the National Coalition—the Syrian opposition’s internationally recognized exile leadership—has ordered the dissolution of the Free Syrian Army’s Supreme Military Council, a more or less defunct exile body set up in 2012 to coordinate support to the rebellion. Something new will surely take its place. Recent reports suggest a reorganization into a two-pronged structure: the Northern Front and the Southern Front. While the insurgency in the north is a mess, albeit a successful mess, a Southern Front structure already exists, though less as an independent entity than as a label for the groups that are jointly backed and coordinated by Western and Gulf states operating out of Amman.

As these pieces start to fall into place, many suspect that Zahran is being groomed for a bigger role in the new rebel leadership structure—or at the very least, that he is independently angling for one. He may not be the most popular rebel leader in Syria, but he is surely the person most likely to grab the presidential palace if the Assad regime starts to crumble. In a recent interview with the McClatchy news agency, he tried to back away from his previous hateful rhetoric against Shia and Alawite minorities in Syria. It is hard to shake the feeling that this was aimed at making him more acceptable to Syrian and international opinion.

Now, a note of caution: there is no confirmation of these news yet. Instead, the most detailed version of the rumors about Zahran’s meetings in Amman comes from @mujtahidd, an anonymous account on Twitter that is dedicated to critical commentary on Saudi politics. Whoever or whatever is really behind the @mujtahidd account, it has an enormous following in Saudi Arabia and the Arab world, but there is no way of confirming these reports—so make of them what you will.

What follows is my quick translation of @mujtahidd’s tweets, which are available in the original Arabic here.


Zahran Alloush spent last week meeting with Saudi, American, and Jordanian intelligence in Amman hotels, in order to coordinate the situation against the Islamic State and the Nusra Front, and for other tasks.

The meeting with the Americans took place a week ago. He met with the Saudis two times: last Friday between 14.30 until 16.00 and on Sunday at 20.00 in the Hayat hotel in Amman.

Saudi intelligence was represented by Abu Badr, who is close to Mohammed bin Nayef. In the first meeting, Zahran Alloush was accompanied by Mohammed Alloush and Abu Ali al-Ajwa. In the second meeting, he was alone.

The goal was to coordinate the war against the Islamic State and the Nusra Front. Alloush said that the war against the Nusra Front will be more difficult to justify than the war on the Islamic State, and that they will have to help him with that.

Alloush was asked to coordinate with the Southern Front, which consists of the remains of what’s left of Jamal Maarouf’s troops and the rest of the mercenaries. A meeting was set up between Alloush and Abu Osama al-Golani, who is one of the leaders of this front.

Alloush started coordinating with the Southern Front to fight the Islamic State and the Nusra Front in Deraa and Quneitra. With the Saudis, he discussed replacing the Islam Army flag by the revolutionary flag.

The meetings were arranged by members of the Jordanian intelligence services. No fewer than ten were seen there and several of them attended the meetings.

Despite insisting on the destruction of the the Islamic State and the Nusra Front in all of Syria, the main focus was on keeping the Damascus front in his hands so that he will be able to reap the fruits even if the regime is toppled by someone else.

An interesting point is that the person known as Abu Badr asked in detail about the Muslim Brotherhood’s strength on the various fronts. It was not clear if the question was in order to push them out or to make use of them.

An observation: the meetings took place in the Hayat hotel, but Alloush is living at the Crowne Plaza. Of course, they’re all in Amman. We ask God to expose all the hypocrites.

You can tell the quality of rebel force by checking the history, credentials and the behavior of their leaders.
Alloush who bombed civilians in Damascus on many occasions is an evil uneducated thug regardless of what some thawrajiyyeh say to beautify his image, and the same can be said about most war lords in Syria toddy.
It is not enough for thawrajiyyeh to expose the pitfalls of Assad regime and his followers, they need to come up with a better alternative, some boneheads here want you to believe that Nusra (aka jayesh Fateh) and Isis are better than the regime, most people disagree and that does not make them supporters of Assad they are simply against terrorism, all Syrians should join forces to fight terrorists regardless if they support Assad or not.
Today Isis severed the heads of dozens of rebels in Aleppo and posted them on buildings !!

The viscousness of the Saudi regime’s assault against the people of Yemen is largely being ignored by western media. The Saudi regime has unleashed white phosphorous, a deadly chemical weapon, into civilian areas. The Saudi regime has bombed hospitals, schools, power plants, and other civilian infrastructure. The death toll has already surpassed 4,000 people, and is constantly rising, with the number of critically wounded nearing 10,000.


The Saudi monarchy, the autocratic repressive agent of Wall Street oil corporations in the Middle East, is seeing its attack on Yemen go very differently than was planned. Yemen is not becoming further fragmented and divided. Rather than the Ansarullah organization and their allies being crushed, many are realizing that it could soon be Saudi Arabia that falls into complete chaos.

The fact that King Salman cancelled his trip to the White House may be indicative of a higher level of confusion and disagreement behind closed doors. The US government may soon begin trying to distance itself from their Saudi puppets, as they did after the fall of Hosni Mubbarack in Egypt.

I’m forced to think of insensitive words of former US Secretary of State Rice, as I ponder the huge potential of the present moment. The situation in Yemen could really mean the birth of “a new middle east.”

I’m reminded of Sheikh Muhammad al-Yacoubi’s calm warning about the potential for anarchy, and reminder that fighters who are now with or against the regime must be able to find jobs and recognize that violence is not a profession.

ALAN said:

The new saudi king Salman and his brother (minister of defense) have decided to follow a (much) more aggressive foreign policy. And that has led to flare up of violence in Iraq (Ramadi) and Syria (Palmyra).
ISIS receives a lot of money from individuals in the Gulf states, as well.
The goal of ISIS is conquering Damascus and then violence will spill over into Jordan and Lebanon.
It seems, that all the interest groups in Washington DC are still fighting each other what the US foreign policy for the Middle East should be. US influence grew in the what a fine mess the US left behind
The Saud clan would need an actual desire for that and It’s as easy for the Saudis to manipulate the US. The Saudis are perfectly free to run their own foreign policy, and they do, and the US is unable to disengage. The Saudi militaristic foreign policy is likely to prove catastrophic in the long run.


the U.S. propaganda machine is working hard on three points. The first is to depict the Syrian government as no longer supported by its people and to sow doubt about its alliances with Iran and Russia. With the new support coming now that line is temporarily inoperable but will be revived when convenient.
The second propaganda stunt is to deny that Jabhat al-Nusra is a real operative part of Al-Qeada with the long-term aim to attack the “west”. This claim is necessary to justify further U.S. support to the Nusra led campaigns in Idleb and elsewhere. There were rumors about al-Nusra rejecting al-Qaeda and attempts to invent some internal strife about the question. An AlJazeerah Arabic softball interview with Nusra chief Jolani was arranged to soften its image. But Jolani did not perform as AlJazeerah sponsor Qatar expected. He again declared full allegiance to al-Qaeda central and his obedience to al-Qeada chief Ayman al-Zawahiri. Nusra is thereby not “al-Qaeda aligned” or “al-Qaeda linked” or an “al-Qaeda franchise”. Jabhat al-Nusra is al-Qaeda. Jolani left no doubt about it.
The third and most stupid propaganda claim is an alleged cooperation of the Syrian government with the Islamic State. “Look, we planned this big operation against Assad in Aleppo and Assad bombed us. The next day the Islamic State attacked us and Assad did not bomb them. See, he did not help us. He must be with the Islamic State.” Some stupidity really has no bounds. Here is how well the Syrian army and the Islamic State really “cooperate”

Buyers remorse is starting to surface in pro rebels media after thawrajiyyeh realized that it is not enough to fill the internet with pre packaged videos and slogans glorifying the ” great revolution” and demonizing Syrians who disagree with them. Many people were eager to see Assad regime go but did not sign off on a bad deal that replaces Assad with Turkish / GCC pimps, Nusra and Isis terrorists and their step children. What was written in late 2011 is still true today:
Hatred and vengeance is not a strategy and can not sustain a revolution, and violence is not a solution it is a problem by itself. people expect their lives to improve when they rise up against a bad regime, most Syrians today refer to the pre 2011 era as ” the good old days”, if that is not a failure of this uprising I do not know what failure is.
An intifada led by sheikhs and financed by the GCC can not bring freedom and justice. You can not make chicken soup out of chicken poop.

Jokes aside I do tend to agree that the militarization of the revolution ended up giving Assad the upper hand and enough cover to demolish Syria into smithereens. Assad 2uw na7re2 al balad is a policy that is to this today being implemented with full force.

What Syria needs and I believe this will be a daunting achievement but if it can be achieved it will save Syria, is to empower a third force not with weapons but with money to feed, house and educate Syrians so that they can help rebuild Syria. We need doctors, engineers, and psychologists more than ever, and if we help educate the refugee children with these invaluable knowledge. Syria today might be lost, but tomorrow brings us a new day.

I think the situation is much more complicated. People are genuinely conflicted over who to support.

The regime destroyed most of the moderate opposition. Since most of them were unarmed protestors, it was relatively easy.

Now the armed opposition is almost entirely salafi, an ideology that historically doesn’t sit well with most Syrians.

Motives are always difficult to ascertain, and again, declaring that someone’s motives was this or that is a matter of speculation.

Still, it’s difficult to understand the example of Zahran Alloush without attributing a motive. A salafi, he was released by the regime at a key point early in the uprising. Improbably key timing. Why release the extremists while filling the prisons with the moderates? It is unlikely that it was because of a shortage of prison cells.

Then there is the story of humanitarians like Razan Zeitouneh. She was kidnapped in rebel territory in 2013. No one claims credit, but she has essentially “disappeared”. She was a strong voice for moderation and a critic of both the government and some of the opposition, but it is unlikely that it was the government that captured her. Morely likely, though he denies it, it was Alloush or some other rebels or less likely just a criminal venture to get ransom.

It is a conundrum. But it does not make most people “closet shabbihas”, just people who have run out of options and don’t know where to turn for help. People just get to pick which of the evils they prefer.

I, for one, am glad that Erdogan received a slap on his face. In the past years he has been acting as a popular arrogant dictator. The results show that Turkey remains a strong democracy, stronger than any leader. They also show that most people, anywhere in the world, do not want to be ruled by a dictator, and do not want to be ruled by religion.

All Sunnis working for the regimr should take notice A sunni general bludgeoned to death over iran contro by foot soldiers and now two sunni commanders executed by the Persians…. A fate well deserved for traitors…

“More recently, Iran reportedly executed three Sunni commanders after taking over the fight in northwest Syria after key losses to rebels.

This slow-motion collapse of the Syrian military and a reliance upon foreign support has led to an abandonment by the Syrian state of areas deemed non-vital to the continuation of the Assad regime. Largely, these forces are now based in Damascus, Homs, and the Alawite stronghold of the Syrian coast from where Assad draws most of his support.

“Of course they are overstretched and weakened. … I think they are reassessing their own strategy,” an unnamed diplomat in Syria told the WSJ. “It’s a matter of surviving. I don’t think the Syrian regime has the ability to think long term.””

Don’t pin your hopes on the Russkies or the Persians. The Ayatollah will sell Bashar down the river to get a deal with the West. And Putin doesn’t have the reach.

It’s over. And it’s Bashar’s own fault. All this started with a few teenagers and some graffiti in Dara’a back in 2011. The Police could have paddled their behinds, given them a stern lecture about showing respect for the President. But no. They pulled out their fingernails and toenails and beat the holy hell out of them. All for a little spray paint.

And Bashar never apologized…

“The Syrian Coalition held the second consultation meeting with representatives of the Syrian rebel factions today in Istanbul to discuss plans for the formation of a joint military command and demands for reforming the Syrian Coalition. The conferees also discussed issuing a joint document to act as a basis for laying out a comprehensive vision for the future of Syria.

“The participants emphasized the integrity of Syria’s territory and the unity of its people, and stressed that rebel fighters will keep fighting until the Assad regime is overthrown and all its allied sectarian militias are expelled from all Syria’s territory and all the displaced people return to their homes.

“Moreover, they agree that the political and military opposition must build on the latest rebel gains and the deteriorating situation of regime forces, stressing the need to build trust among military and political parties and the transition from opposition mentality to the mentality of state-building to present a real alternative for the Assad regime.” (Source: Syrian Coalition)

Here’s more detail on the Idlib shootout between Nusra and the Druze:

“…I follow some JaF users on twitter and what I could understand is what happened was not because of sectarian reasons, rather, it was because of disagreement between one of the villagers and JaN fighters. A number of Druze villages in Idlib are under the control of JaN. The villagers agreed with JaN on a number items including the delivery of the houses that belong to the “Shabiha of Bashar” for the displaced civilians from other villages to live in. This condition was accepted by the villagers except for a person who refused to give up the house of his brother who works with the SAA as an officer. So, this man sat on the roof of the house with his weapon and warned JaN fighters (two of them were present) from approaching. One of JaN went to the house after leaving his weapon outside to talk to the man. Then, a group of armed villagers came and killed the fighter in the house. The other fighter then opened fire on them killing between 5 to 7 of them. The village right now is under the control of JaN and the case was referred to the court…’

The wisdom of druze people is being challenged. Joumblatt is pushing their partners in Souweida to leave the regime side. The vast majority of druzes in Souweida are against following Assad strategy of ¨Assad or Nothing¨.

If Souweida takes the decision then Assad is a dead man.

The revolution that created modern Syria started in the druze lands 1920´s, the start of a modern Syria may start in Jabal Druze too (or Jabal Al Arab as Assad named it).

An agreement among FSA and Druze Leaders is possible.

2- Guarantee that every Syrian (with clean criminal record) is allowed to run for next presidency
3- Guarantee the security of every member of the current regime from all backgrounds
4- Guarantee the investments, real-estates and ownerships of every member of the current regime
5- Guarantee the security of minorities land and regions, and allowing a form of federal control
6- Guarantee the cleansing of Nusra and all other terrorist groups
7- Guarantee surrendering weapons and personals to government after finishing fighting the terrorist groups
8- Guarantee that all the rebuilding contracts are going through one newly established entity called the “Syrian Sovereign Fund” SSF

Bashar alAssad , a Batta in Asma’s eyes. A boy in the eyes of the world. Hehe

The 52nd Brigade was the second best unit of the Assad army. An elite force, consisting of infantry, artillery and armored elements — a well-resourced -trained -motivated Alawite unit. It was stationed around the town of Dara’a, in the southeast of Syria, close to the Syria-Jordan and Syria-Israel borders, controlling the southern roads to Damascus. This is a region whose population is mostly tribal Sunni Muslim and Druze. The brigade is no more, as after only eight hours of fighting, the 1st army of the rebels destroyed it, and in the process 400 Alawite soldiers were killed, with many more injured. This is a resounding defeat for the regime; one which leads to some important questions: What is happening with the once powerful Syrian army, built to be a strategic match to Israel’s army? What are the implications for the Alawite community; and above all, how is Iran connected with all that?

Put bluntly, Bashar Assad is no more the real ruler of what is, even nominally, under his control; no more than 20 percent of his territory. He is the messenger boy of the Iranian regime.

It is not just the pro regime people who lied to their audience, it is now clear that pro rebel TV and internet jihadists have lied from day one about events on the ground and the true nature of the rebel forces and their ideology.It took a couple of years for the average outsider to figure things out but most people, thawrajiyyeh aside, are ready to admit that the war in Syria is mostly between Ikhwanji-Alqaeda type rebel groups and troops loyal to Assad and his regime, the so-called FSA only exists on facebook and on blogs like this one.
The conflict has an obvious sectarian nature, there is no presence for any shia or alawites in rebel held areas, however millions of sunnis still reside, have moved or are still moving to areas controlled by the regime.
The next time you see a thawraji claiming that the rebel force now is not an islamist jihadist movement tell him or her that you can lie to some people for a period of time but you can not lie to all people all the time.
Even in Daraa, Swaidaa and Qnaitra, most of the fighters attacking cities and military checkpoints are members of Nusra/alqaeda (and their step children brigades), there is no national rebel force in Syria today, that is why the Druze in Swaidaa will not listen to Junblat and others who are trying to beautify the pig with the black flag !!

Assad was able to come back after most of his enemies wrote his obituary in 2012 and started appointing people for top positions in what they called “revolutionary government”, the same thing is happening again except that it is more serious now and less likely that a united Syria will emerge ftom the rubble especially after the resurgence of Nusra and Isis who will not allow a civilian government in any area under their control.
Unless you are an ikhwanji, Alqaeda supporter, GCC, Tutkish or Israeli political pimp you should be very suspicious of what is being cooked for the old country even if you want Assad and the Syrian army to be defeated.
I doubt that Iran and Russia will let Islamist rebels rule Syria even if they consent to Assad departure or a semi partition of Syria, Syria is too important for one side to enjoy a decisive victory or suffer a total defeat.
The likely winners will likely include Israel and the multiple war lords but you, my Syrian friends, will only have your memories and the joy of counting the dead bodies on the other side.

What’s worse, dirty Zionists or ISIS or FSA? I’m guessing were not at the top of the list because Assad helped Israel so much by keeping the Syrian – Israel border so quiet for such a long time. If you see the good Doctor, please give him a huge “shukran” from this Zionist.

The war now is not about Assad, he can leave tomorrow and very few things will change because most of Syria toddy is occupied by jihadists and hired guns who pledge allegiance to foreign countries. Many of us did not want this war to start and warned that the country will be destroyed and the dream of freedom and democracy will be replaced by the nightmares of destruction and misery.
Israel now wants the international community to approve its annexation of the Golan and is in bed with members of the Syrian opposition and Islamist rebels who go to Israel to treat their “wounds”.
Opposing Assad is one thing but selling Syria to Israel and turkey is another, only an ikhwanji fool would prefer Nusra over a secular government, that government does not have to include Assad, he should not have been crowned in 2000 and he should have resigned in 2011.

There’s our boy Jammie again with his “Joke yourself not.” Such a sweet kid. Don’t you just want to take him home to meet Mom and Dad?

On a more serious note, Ghufran’s posts on this board, especially the last two, should be required reading. He’s a true patriot and he calls a spade a spade. I, for one, salute him…

You didn’t answer my question. It was quite straightforward. Seems to me Assad:

1.) Sold Syria to Israel by protecting the border

2.) Destroyed Syria, by keeping the people down, being against the We $t, and letting foreign fighters in.

Real life may sometimes be stranger than fiction, but never stranger than mythology. So someone who appears rarely on a blog is not necessarily the “mahdi” of the blog.

Beside if you want to strip all officials and their family members from the second citizenship then you need to process millions of applications ya habib. We always thought ahead and prepared for dark coming days, and almost all officals Alawite/Sunnah send their spouses to give birth in Canada or USA to gain the citizenship. See it’s a choice.

I am surprised that all of the wives have delivered in Canada or the US; I would have thought they would have preferred to deliver in Iran or Russia or perhaps North Korea. 🙂

But of course, if you dig a little they like to be in countries where the rule of law is the norm yet they have never allowed for the same for 99.99% of Syrians to have.

They also like to have apartments in Austria with which they established a relationship after the Austrians deployed UN troops on the Golan and this is where Bassil put in his fortune and was “married” after he died so that taxes could be reduced when it was time to withdraw and dispose of the inheritance.

The problem with the recent posts is that once again a troll is distracting from the debate:
1. The regime is not going to survive in its current form
2. The regime is not capable of maintaining even the security house of cards any longer
3. The regime is asking for a negotiated settlement and try to buy a little more time
4. The regime is withdrawing to areas that it can defend or so it thinks but the reality is that it can only defend if massive support is provided from the outside.
5. The regime has run out of options to bring in money and men to defend it
6. The regime by adopting a policy of burning the country it does not control has left the people no choice but to fight to the end as they have nothing to lose any longer
7. The regime can no longer deter its neighbors by exporting problems to Jordan, Lebanon, or Turkey and least of all in Iraq where he lost the border
8. The regime can no longer pretend to defend the minorities as it is clearly stating that it will defend one minority only and within that minority a single clan/family
9. The efforts of organizing the opposition now are not to finish the regime more quickly but to insure that IS does not take advantage of the collapse and establish a presence in Damascus.

So my dear Syrian Hamster do not pay attention to distractions; and read carefully how the minorities are the first to abandon their Syrian identity as we see Arslan and Wahab in Lebanon and Jumblatt as well talk of Druze regardless of their being Lebanese or Syrian. One more time it is proof beyond doubt that the Syrian Arab National identity that we were led to believe existed was nothing more than a screen to insure that the regime remains in the hands of a mafia clan within a minority that is eternally victimized in its mind of centuries of Ibn T’s oppression by intrinsically evil subhuman Sunnis; those that are of two categories: the ones that are corrupt and we use them to steal and destroy and those that we kill and imprison and torture.

ISIS Colonel Was Trained By Blackwater And U.S. State Department For 11 Years
If you need more proof that the U.S. government doesn’t have a strategy to deal with ISIS, here it is. It doesn’t get much more blatant than this. The group has captured billions of dollars in American-supplied military equipment, is expanding its territory despite the western world bombing it, and recently leaked documents prove the U.S. predicted — even encouraged — the creation on ISIS. All the while, U.S. trained fighters continue to join the ranks of the ‘Islamic State,’ using weapons that American taxpayers paid for, against other forces equipped with U.S. financed military equipment.

In Denmark, they’re getting tired of all the smelly Muslims wandering around, mucking up neighborhoods with their keffiyahs and their hijabs and their AK47s. The anti-immigration vote is gaining traction. And the Danes are doing provocative stuff, like in a few days, there’s gonna be a Mohammed cartoon fest and the guest of honor will be that crazy lady from the shootout in Texas.

Anyway, the immigrants are finding out that Denmark is not such a friendly place after all. So these Syrians are staging a hunger strike in Copenhagen in protest >>> http://www.thelocal.dk/20150611/syrian-refugees-stage-hunger-strikes-in-denmark

I invite you to retweet and show solidarity with the children of Syria

‘We are the child’: the anti-Assad slogan spreading across the Middle East
BBC Trending

A man evacuates a child from a building following a reported barrel bomb attack in Aleppo last month. Other pictures of child victims of barrel bombs – most too graphic to show here – have been circulating on social media
People across the Arab world have been expressing solidarity with child victims of barrel bomb attacks in Syria – and opposing President Assad – with the hashtag “we are the child, you are the barrel”.

The use of barrel bombs has escalated in recent days in Aleppo, according to the UN. Pictures that claim to show what the weapons do to child victims (which we haven’t been able to verify – and which are mostly too graphic to show or link to) have started spreading on social media networks, under an Arabic hashtag which translates as: “we are the child, you are the barrel”.
And the tag gives an insight into the broad coalition of individuals who now oppose Assad in the region.
One of the first people to tweet the hashtag was Mahmoud Owaimer. As a Palestinian living in Gaza, Mahmoud told BBC Trending that the suffering of Syrians reminds him of the recent war with Israel and the shelling of Gaza. “What hurts is that we’ve seen the war in Syria going on for four years and we can’t see any end to it. It would move anyone, wherever they are, to want to speak out.

Unlike the Syrian rebels that you treat and arm? Who do you think you’re fooling?

Is Hamas “protecting” your border too?

And where are the actual news, like the massacre of 20 Druze, instead of worthless rumours about this and that Wahabite caveman?

Druze in Swaida and their spiritual leadership dealt a blow to islamist rebels, Israel and Junblat when they decided to defend Thalaa air base and the outskirts of Swaida thus siding with the Syrian army.
Rebels tweeters accuse Druze of abandoning the “revolution” and supporting Assad and “promised” that Druze in Syria will regret this decision. Regardless of where you stand on the Syrian war issue, you have to be a fool to expect Druze to support the terrorists of Nusra et al after Druze watched the actions of Islamist rebels which were in sharp contradiction of opposition Taqiyyah-practicing internet blabbers propaganda, the latest achievement of “moderate rebels” was the slaughter of 3 dozen Druze civilians in Idleb.

Druzes believe themselves inspired by God for their eternal survival and realm but everything has a limit. This Assad assassin regime has it too. Druzes of Syria are derailed and will suffer extreme disaster if they are not able to leave Assad alone. Worse even, in case Assad succeds, druze will be responsible for the consequences. Junblatt is the most brilliant druze figure and he has spoken loud and clear.

All druze personalities in Sweida are rural, peasant and religious people with a limited skope of global politics.

Most of them still believe in magic, esotherics rituals and future predictions. This is not because of the druze faith, this is due to alientation they have suffered for the last 150 years.

Worse even, Sweida is fully infiltrated by Assad agents and totally corrupted by clientelism. The mental disruption of corruption is spread among all state officials in Sweida too. This makes things more difficult for Sweida to make a change. Sweida rest in peace.
