Syria’s Jihad against Denmark

Syria is playing dirty now. On Friday, demonstrators in Damascus set ablaze embassies of Denmark and Norway over a September 2005 publication of the caricatures in Jyllands-Posten. First time to hear of protests in Syria, this is a nice joke to begin the day. Syrians living under the oppressive regime of Al Assad are protesting, what an atmosphere of freedom! They are not of course protesting against the injustices of the regime but Denmark that published cartoons seven months ago for prophet Muhammed. Isn’t it a bit late? Let me tell you also that the Egyptian newspaper “Al Fagr”, which means Dawn in English, published the same cartoons a month ago and no one protested in Egypt.

On Sunday, in Lebanon, known to be a playground for the Syrian intelligence, protestors torched the Danish embassy in Beirut. Again, the fingerprints of Syria are clear. Over the past year, Syria executed a series of deadly attacks against anti-Syria Lebanese figures in Lebanon that took the lives of Former President Rafik Al Hariri and Journalist Samir Kasir.

Iran’s regime, Syria’s best friend, was differed to the U.N. Security Council on Saturday, so it is the perfect time to play dirty. When Lebanon asked for its independence, Syria killed former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafil Al Hariri. When Iraq won its freedom and now on its way to restore a democracy process, Syria started helping foreign insurgency through its borders on Iraq’s soil, so now it is to time to react in favor of Syria’s best friend, Iran, by trying to cause disability to Lebanon.

In Lebanon, on Sunday demonstrators did not torch the Danish embassy only but also armed with stones and sticks, damaged police and fire vehicles and threw stones at a Maronite Catholic church in the wealthy Ashrafieh area — a Christian neighborhood where the Danish Embassy is located. Is there an explanation for attacking Lebanese Christian citizens except that yesterday’s protests were meant for another ulterior motive?

The U.S. has been playing down the cartoons saga, but it stepped in on Sunday to warn Syria and hold it responsible for protecting the embassies.

The Syrian Dream is continuing…

Yes it is a shame...

But, in a dictatorship like syria, These very same ppl will take to the streets to attack opposition figures... it's not about Denmark, and I doubt it's about Islam!!

Danish embassy CAN and WILL be rebuilt again, but the damage to the Syrian image outside and to Syrians, that'll take years to heal... that's the worst part of this.. for me as a Syrian.

Again, it is a shame...

if u're intersted u can check my blog for responses from the Syrian Blogsphere to such events... I find it my duty to help erase the trauma of this...

good day

I am glad the interior minister decided not to open fire in this particular case. The building can be rebuilt and no human lives other than the demonstrators themselves were at stake.

And now that we are speaking of conspiracies, there is an interesting piece of fact, that I learned today.

When Iran finds itself in the eye of the storm regarding its nuclear program, which, of all countries, will be chairing the U.N. body? Denmark!

Are you trying to say that you are happy that the Danish government has still not apologized to Muslims all over the world ? Even though it has hurt each and every true Muslim's feelings?
It is a shame that people have stopped thinking about other's.

Why should the government of Denmark apologize? They have no control over what newspapers in their country publish!
