Where the rubber meets the air in academia:
“The fight in Syria is an extension of the fight for freedom regionally and worldwide. It cannot be divorced from the struggles of the Bahrainis, Egyptians, Tunisians, Libyans, Yemenis, and other peoples who have revolted against oppression and authoritarianism as well as against those seeking to usurp or destroy the uprisings and divert them for their own agendas. It is connected to the Palestinians’ struggle for freedom, dignity and equality.”
I’m all for freedom for the Syrian people. That’s not happening. The uprising is largely in the hands of the crazies and funded by crazies from the gulf, Lebanon and NATO and no doubt Israel.
Notice how the Palestinians in this paragraph are not fighting “oppression and authoritarianism” but rather their “struggle for freedom, dignity and equality” is somehow connected to an uprising led by religious wackos, funded and armed by other religious wackos and NATO – and possibly Israel.
I’m going over to the Angry Arab’s page right now to see if he has posted anything on this.
Rats, didn’t find anything. But I did find that he linked to this article that teaches us that if you say “In sha’a Allah” that is a red flag. Good fucking grief.
