Israel Rolls Up Sleeves to Hit Damascus
I am actually on holiday and I have intentionally made limited access to technology, however a war has just started in my neighborhood. I felt there is a need to write. However as I mentioned in my previous blog, I will be back to regular blogging, emailing late next week.
I am not going to write about the sequence of events and how crazy to kill the civilians, I will leave that to the human rights organizations and other political parties concerned.
What I am going to write might annoy many of my readers but this is how I am seeing what is happening.
The truth is that Syria is the only country meant by Israeli war. Lebanon is the scapegoat and the prelude to the escalation that will lead at the end to hitting Syria. I hope I am wrong.
Syria’s regime has always played its cards under the table while maintaining other players on the stage to act on its behalf. The sole defender, protector and creator of the failure that’s called pan-Arabism is Syria. The project that has brought despotism, dictatorship and failed regimes to rule in the Middle East was created by this fascist regime. Time for a confrontation…
The true axes of pan-Arabism were Iraq and Egypt and Currently Syria. After the fall of Saddam Hussein, Iraq was liberated from the despotism of the project of the Pan-Arabism. Egypt, though during the past 25 years under President Honsi Mubarak was the sole defender of Syria, was saved when President Anwar Sadat signed a peace treaty that protected and stopped the bloodshed. Syria is the only regime that is maintaining the corruption and the hatred embedded in this project.
Syria has maintained strong grip on Lebanon to suck its money economically and sheltered Hizbullah figures and leaderships. Syria had never worked towards a path that should lead to peace and prosperity for its people or the neighnbouring countries. Terrorists are inflitrating to Iraq through Syria. Car bombs are exploding in Lebanon killing key figures by the Syrian intelligence as investigation reports hinted.
After the declaration of the plans for the greater Middle East, the United States made its to way Iraq and pulled Saddam Hussein from a hole in the ground. However, the United States did not plan on grabbing every dictator in the Middle East from a hole in the ground. Israel assumed an inactive role since the war on terrorism has started. It was inactive until few days. However, I always thought Israel will play its role with Syria sooner or later. The day has come. Israel p now plans to hit Damascus. The escalation is intentional. Arabs’ lack of long term strategy will help Israel play its role.
Along the history, it is well known that the Middle East was not handed from one empire to another except at least with the fall of two capitals; Baghdad was one and Damascus is coming!
The Arab propaganda media machines have already started beating the drums, glorifying the might of Hizbullah and Hamas, calling them a resistance. Well, let the Arab media play the people as usual. I am not surprised. Let’s not Aljazeera channel when it was airing the Iraqi Information minister Al Sahhaf who was saying lies all the time about how they are stopping the US army until cameras showed the US troops behind his back asking him to surrender. Dictator regimes/leaders are capable of creating out of reality heroes. That’s the only thing they can do to their people. Israel is a nuclear country. Hizbullah army is not self-sufficient. Hamas government could not pay the salaries and had to beg for money from the EU and Arab Gulf rich countries.
I am afraid Israel will finish its job regardless of who says what. The decision has been taken.
The Lebanese and the Palestinian peoples will be paying a dear price for all the failures of the leadership to establish a decent life for them. The world has started to show zero tolerance for acts that cannot interpreted by the human logic, like suicide bombing or kidnappings which are the only means that groups like Hamas and Hizbullah use to fight their enemies.
I am bitterly realistic because of the horrific nightmare that the peoples of the region are living right now.
I am afraid the Middle East region will continue to be on the roller coaster, I do not know until when…...
