The Families of Qardaha; Hizbullah Fighters Killed in Syria; Iran’s Currency Collapses from Sanctions

Chroniques du délitement. 2 / Règlement de comptes à Qardaha, antre de la famille Al Assad

Selon les informations disponibles, une altercation est donc intervenue, vendredi 28 septembre, dans un café de Qardaha, entre des membres des familles Al Assad et Chalich, d’une part, et des familles Al Khayyer, Othman et Abboud, de l’autre. Le “seigneur de la montagne” n’a pas supporté d’entendre un membre de la famille Al Khayyer dénoncer à haute voix la gestion calamiteuse du pays par son cousin, le chef de l’Etat, et réclamer le départ de Bachar Al Assad. Son incompétence avait déjà détruit et ruiné la Syrie. Elle risquait de provoquer le désastre et la mort jusque dans sa ville natale. Fidèle à sa réputation, Mohammed Al Assad a aussitôt sorti son pistolet et tiré sur l’impudent qui tenait de tels propos. Mais il a manqué sa cible et l’autre, plus adroit, l’a grièvement blessé par un tir de riposte. S’est ensuivi un affrontement généralisé qui a provoqué plusieurs morts et blessés dans les deux camps…..

Le Monde has put together what is known about the fighting in Qardaha.

The Al-Khayyer, Othman and Abboud families, who it is believed fought with the Assad family, are well respected within the Alawite community. They have produced many lawyers, engineers and doctors, unlike some of the other families of Qardaha.

Dr Abdel-Aziz Al Khayyer, who is featured in this le Monde article was married to my mother-in-law’s cousin, Mona al-Ahmad. He fled Syria after Hafiz al-Assad’s police accused him of being “too Communist”, a catch-all accusation that was used to condemn many critics of the regime. Because the regime could not imprison Abdelaziz al-Khayyer, they arrested his wife, Mona, to try to induce him to give himself up and to dissuade others from dissent. He never did give himself up, and Mona remained imprisoned for many years.

She was tortured in prison and became paranoid and disturbed. When she was finally released, my mother-in-law along with others tried to help Mona get medical help for her paranoia. Mona believed that relatives were out to get her. Her son, Majd, had to be taken care of by his grandmother, who was a strong woman and succeeded in getting herself educated. Her sister, my wife’s grandmother, was married off at the age of 13, and remained illiterate for the rest of her days despite her daughters’ encouragement to return to school. All of her 10 children got advanced degrees and made something of themselves. The story of Mona’s torture and unjustified imprisonment has festered in the family for decades, causing tensions between different branches of the family and much sadness and guilt among those who were unable to help. Unfortunately, every Syrian family has a similar story tucked away – some have many.

Syria’s Kurds prepare for life after Assad
By Loveday Morris in al-Hassaka, Syria, FT

… At a party youth rally in Derik, the speaker rouses the crowd with a message from Mr Ocalan to the Syrian Kurds, which he says was given to a lawyer on a recent prison visit.

“You must not be with Assad, you must not be with the opposition, you must be the third power in Syria,” he quotes Mr Ocalan as saying. “You must prepare 15,000 soldiers to protect the Kurdish areas. If you don’t take this strategy you will be crushed . . .  Every young Kurd must prepare themselves to join up and protect their motherland.”…

Kurds – largely concentrated in the country’s north-east, which holds a significant portion of Syria’s limited but vital oil reserves – have been quietly preparing for a post-Assad future, opening police stations, courts and local councils that they hope will form the foundations of an autonomous region.

The proliferation of newly hung Kurdish flags and signs in the mother tongue in al-Hassaka province give the impression of liberation after years of rule under the Ba’ath party, which expropriated land in Kurdish areas, suppressed expressions of Kurdish identity and arrested thousands of Kurdish activists, especially after riots shook the Kurdish areas in 2004.

But the effort at self-governance is taking place while the regime troops maintain a presence in many of the region’s towns and cities, appearing to turn a blind eye to what would have previously been an unthinkable threat to its power.

Mr Turkmani points to a building a few hundred metres away, where the two-starred Syrian state flag flutters overhead.

“Bashar’s police station,” he says. “They just play cards all day. They have nothing to do.”…

Note from a Syrian friend:

The way Syria has been maltreating its Kurdish citizens is a disgrace. In an a-la-Iraq configuration, Syria’s Kurds should have autonomy. The name of the country should drop the word “Arab” to become the Republic of Syria, which was the name before the racist Baath Party stole power in 1963.

Civilians plead with Syrian fighters – al-Jazeera

Residents of al-Raqqa, known as ‘hotel’ of the revolution, tell combatants to spare them as rebels plan to take city.

More than 500,000 people are estimated to have fled to the northern city of al-Raqqa over the year-and-a-half long conflict in Syria.

That influx of internally displaced Syrians has doubled al-Raqqa’s population.

Now, as opposition fighters say they plan to take the city from the forces of Bashar al-Assad, the Syrian president, civilians are pleading with the fighters to spare them the violence that would ensue.

http://www.alarabiya.net/articles/2012/10/03/241541.html

Never think for a moment that this ‘mongolian’ barbaric regime of thugs and monsters will spare a single town or city of Syria as it knows full well that it is nothing but an occupation band of usurpers and outlawed criminals that do not belong in the Syrian landscape. They are remnants of the Mongolian invaders assissted by the heretic mullahs and their hizbillati thugs that wrecked havoc on the land of Syria 1000 years ago in a manner not much different than what we see today.

On the other hand the effect of Iranistani currency meltdown is having its toll in many parts of Iranistan. Southern provinces are experiencing general strikes of businesses that are protesting the deteriorating situation which they find becoming unbearable. These strikes took place in Bushehr, Pars, as well as the Arab majority and oil producing province of Arabistan.

Tehran money exchangers are now refusing trading because of mullah government attempts to lay the blame on them for the currency meltdown. The mullahs, of course, are aware of the impact of the currency meltdown on the general population which look at the mullahs as the source of corruption and the class which stole the wealth and impoverished the vast majority of Iranians.

27 killed, over 70 injured in three blasts that rocked Aleppo
http://rt.com/news/aleppo-blast-government-center-553/
Syrian state TV reports of three powerful explosions in downtown Aleppo, the financial hub and largest city of the country. Reportedly the blasts were caused by car bombs that terrorists delivered to the city’s main square.
Syrian officials report 27 fatalities and 72 injured in Aleppo terror act.
The London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says that activists on the ground report of dozens of casualties, most of them military servicemen.
The Saadallah al-Jabri square in central Aleppo where the explosions took place is currently controlled by government forces. A military club is located nearby and might have been one of the targets of the attack.
Terror acts like this are not common in Aleppo. The first one happened in February, when two suicide car bombers attacked security compounds in Aleppo’s industrial center killing 28 people. Since then, there have only been two similar attacks.

حزب العمال يهدد بتحويل اسطنبول إلى حمص وتركيا تخضع وتسمح بزيارة اوجلان..
يخضع زعيم حزب العمال الكردستاني عبد الله اوجلان لإقامة جبرية منفردة ومعزولة عن العالم منذ عام تقريبا في سجن في جزيرة (إيمرالي) قرب اسطنبول، وحتى أيام قليلة رفضت السلطات التركية كل الطلبات التي تقدم بها محاموه والمنظمات الحقوقية العالمية لزيارة زعيم الأكراد في تركيا ومعرفة أوضاعه الصحية واستمرت أنقرة في موقفها الرافض حتى ما قبل أسبوعين من الان عندما سرت إشاعة تقول بوفاة اوجلان في سجنه بسبب مرض وجراء سنوات السجن والتعذيب .

الأمور أخذت منحى تصعيديا منذ أسبوعين عندما هدد حزب العمال الكردستاني بتحويل اسطنبول إلى حمص ثانية في حال لم تسمح السلطات التركية للجنة مستقلة بزيارة اوجلان في سجنه للتأكد انه ما زال على قيد الحياة، وقد ترافق هذا التهديد مع تصاعد في العمليات العسكرية لحزب العمال في مناطق تركية متفرقة واشتداد المواجهات في جبال قنديل، ما جعل تركيا تتراجع عن موقفها المتصلب وتسمح بالزيارة.

مصادر قيادية رفيعة في حزب العمال الكردستاني أكدت لي أن وفدا من اللجنة الدولية لمناهضة التعذيب زار قائد الشعب الكردي حسب توصيفها نهاية الأسبوع الماضي وان الوفد أكد لهم أن اوجلان حي يرزق في سجنه وصحته لا بأس بها ، مضيفةً أرسلنا للأتراك رسائل مع الوسيط الأمريكي الذي كان بيننا في مفاوضات اوسلو وقلنا لهم بوضوح سوف ندمر الموسم السياحي في تركيا وأنتم تعرفون قدرتنا على تنفيذ تهديدنا و تحويل اسطنبول إلى حمص ثانية (في إشارة إلى مدينة حمص في سوريا).

في نفس السياق قالت مصادر كردية مقربة من حزب العمال الكردستاني أن مفاوضات أوسلو بين الحزب وتركيا انتهت إلى الفشل، وأضافت أن هذه المفاوضات أتت بواسطة أمريكية وذلك في محاولة من جانب الولايات المتحدة وتركيا لتحييد الأكراد بسبب الوضع في سوريا وسعي الطرفين لإسقاط النظام في دمشق، وأضافت المصادر الكردية المطلعة أن اردوغان وحكومته لم يكونوا في وارد تقديم أي تنازل، وكانت هذه المفاوضات عبارة عن مناورة سياسية لكسب الوقت وتحييد الأكراد على جانبي الحدود حيث يتواجد أكثر من ثلاثمائة قرية وبلدة كردية في الجانب التركي فقط، مضيفة أن الوفد التركي تكلم فقط عن حزب الاتحاد الديمقراطي السوري المتواجد في (غرب كردستان).هذا تعبير يطلقه الأكراد على مناطقهم في سوريا على الحدود مع تركيا خصوصا في منطقة عفرين الجبلية حيث يتواجد عدة آلاف من المقاتلين التابعين للحزب الديمقراطي السوري يقول الأتراك أنهم مدعومين من قوات من لواء اومانوس الكردي وهو قوات النخبة في حزب العمال الكردستاني بينما تنفي اوساط حزب الاتحاد هذا الكلام التركي.

أوساط دبلوماسية غربية تقول أن حزب الاتحاد الديمقراطي هو السبب الأساس في هدوء الأوضاع الأمنية في شمال سوريا وبفضله ما زالت السلطات السورية تبسط سيادتها على هذه المنطقة حيث يتمتع الحزب بنفوذ كبير بين الكرد وهذا ما تسعى واشنطن وأنقرة لتغييره بهدف سحب الورقة الكردية من دمشق، ولهذا السبب تحديدا دفعت انقرة باتجاه انتخاب (عبد الباسط سيدا) وهو كردي رئيسا للمجلس الوطني السوري، غير أن هذه المناورة لم تحصد نتائج تذكر على الأرض، وقد أتت بعد فشل مفاوضات اوسلو وبعد تصعيد حربي بين الطرفين في أكثر من منطقة كردية في تركيا، وقد أتى مؤتمر القاهرة للمعارضة السورية ليقضي على كل المناورات في هذا الملف حيث انسحبت الوفود التركية من المؤتمر على وقع خلافات كبيرة مع المجلس الوطني السوري وجماعة الإخوان المسلمين بينما كان (عبد الباسط سيدا) في موقف لا يحسد عليه جراء انسحاب الكرد تحت وقع اللكمات والشتائم المتبادلة مع أعضاء في المجلس الوطني وجماعة الإخوان المسلمين. وقد أكد صالح مسلم رئيس حزب الاتحاد الديمقراطي الشخصية الكردية الأبرز في المعارضة السورية أن الأكراد انسحبوا بعدما رفض المجلس الوطني والإخوان المسلمون الاعتراف بالشعب الكردي فقلنا لهم نحن أيضا لن نعترف بكم طالما لا تعترفون بنا وقررنا الانسحاب، فقالوا لنا نؤجل هذه القضية إلى اجتماع مقبل فكان جوابنا أننا قررنا الانسحاب من هذا المؤتمر، بينما يقول (هيثم مناع) رئيس هيئة التنسيق في المهجر انه حاول التوسط في القضية ولكنه اصطدم بعقبات وهو سجل موقفا متضامنا مع الأكراد. من جهته رامي عبد الرحمن رئيس المرصد السوري لحقوق الإنسان يقول أن عمار القربي وبسام الديري يقفان وراء افتعال المشاكل في المؤتمر بسبب رفضهما أي فقرة تعترف بالأكراد أما الأخيران فيحملان المجلس ومن ورائه تركيا المسؤولية الكاملة عن فشل الاجتماع وانسحابهما منه.

الصراع الكردي التركي مستمر بشكل عنيف عسكريا وسياسيا ورغم جميع المناورات التركية ابتداء من مؤتمر اوسلو وصولا لتعيين عبد الباسط سيدا رئيسا للمجلس الوطني، ما زالت تركيا تتخذ موقفا معاديا للشعب الكردي في عموم المنطقة والعالم يقول ناشط كردي مقيم في أوروبا، مضيفا أننا نشترك مع سوريا في عداء اردوغان وحكومته لنا ونحن قدمنا للجانب السوري مطالبنا السياسية المشروعة في سوريا وتباطؤ النظام في تلبيتها لن يفيده ويفيدنا في مواجهة تركيا، نحن حليف سياسي وعسكري قوي و مهم استراتيجيا لسوريا وحلفائها في مواجهة أطماع تركيا في سوريا والمنطقة، فليأخذ النظام السوري قرارا جريئا في مطالبنا المحقة يختم الناشط الكردي كلامه..
——————————————–
أمريكا تطلب اتصالاً مع الوفد السوري عبر لافروف، ودمشق: سنسلح كل كردي بصاروخ
طلب الوفد الأمريكي المشارك في اجتماعات الدورة السابعة والستين للجمعية العامة للأمم المتحدة اتصالا مع الوفد السوري المشارك في الدورة وذلك عبر وزير الخارجية الروسي سيرغي لافروف. وقالت مصادر عربية في فرنسا لموقع المنار أن الولايات المتحدة أرادت بحث قضية سلاح الدمار الشامل الذي تمتلكه سوريا، وحسب المصادر المذكورة أعطى السوريون تطمينات بضمانة روسيا أن السلاح الكيماوي والسلاح الجرثومي لن يستخدم بأية حال من الأحوال في الداخل السوري وفي الصراع القائم حاليا بين الدولة السورية والمعارضة المسلحة التي تدعمها الولايات المتحدة مباشرة وعبر حلفائها العرب و الأتراك في المنطقة.

المصادر العربية قالت أن الوفد السوري أكد أن هذه الأسلحة مؤمنة وبعيدة عن الخطر ولن يتم استعمالها إلا في حال تعرض سوريا لتدخل عسكري خارجي. في تلك الحال فقط سوف تعتبر الدول المحرضة والمشاركة في أي عدوان على دمشق هدفا مشروعا للصواريخ السورية المحملة برؤوس كيماوية وجرثومية ومنها دول في الجوار السوري دون تحديد أية دول. غير أن المصدر العربي أشار إلى ان تركيا و”إسرائيل” هدفان ثابتان للصواريخ السورية الغير تقليدية في حال تعرض الجمهورية العربية السورية لتدخل عسكري خارجي كما طلب أمير قطر في الأمم المتحدة وتبعه أمين عام جامعة الدول العربية نبيل العربي في المطلب على عادة العربي منذ توليه منصب الأمانة العامة للجامعة بدعم خليجي.

في نفس السياق قالت مصادر كردية سورية مقربة من حزب العمال الكردستاني ومن حزب الاتحاد الديمقراطي الكردي في سوريا والذي يعتبر الفرع السوري لحزب العمال الكردستاني أن سوريا أرسلت لتركيا رسالة قالت فيها أن التدخل التركي في سوريا الذي وصل إلى حد التدخل العسكري المباشر على الحدود وفي إدلب يوف يدفع سوريا إلى تسليح كل كردي في تركيا وفي سوريا بصاروخ ، وأضاف المصدر الكردي أن هناك توجها جديا لدى النظام في سوريا لتسليح المقاتلين الأكراد بأسلحة ثقيلة وحديثة من ضمنها صواريخ كورنيت التي يحتاجها الأكراد في حربهم ضد تركيا و التي سوف تغير وجه الصراع في جبال قنديل في حال حصل عليها مقاتلو حزب العمال الكردستاني، فضلا عن معدات ومدافع هاون وأسلحة كثيرة يطلبها الكردستاني .

If the Iranian opposition is able to convince more than 50% of the Iranians that the Islamic regime must go, so be it.
Until now , unfortunately this is very far from the reality. This is why the green revolution organized by the educated elite but not followed by the mass aborted. In addition a country rarely goes through multiple ‘revolutions’ within a couple of decades. They go to “evolution”, a slower but less traumatic process.

The average iranians are not blaming the government as they know that sanctions imposed by the West because of Israel and its fear of Iran are the main culprit of their economical hardship.

http://www.nytimes.com/2012/10/03/world/africa/us-said-to-be-preparing-potential-targets-tied-to-libya-attack.html?_r=2&

WASHINGTON — The United States is laying the groundwork for operations to kill or capture militants implicated in the deadly attack on a diplomatic mission in Libya, senior military and counterterrorism officials said Tuesday, as the weak Libyan government appears unable to arrest or even question fighters involved in the assault.

The preparations underscore the bind confronting the White House over the Benghazi attack. Mr. Obama has vowed to bring the killers to justice, and in the final weeks of the presidential campaign Republicans have hammered the administration over the possible intelligence failures that preceded the attack — including a new accusation that repeated requests for strengthened security in Benghazi had been rejected.
