The killings go on and on in Syria, each day a dozen or so human beings are killed because President Bashar al-Assad does not wish to relinquish any of his power. US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton termed the slaughter of over 6,000 people in Syria a crime against humanity. But, tanks, artillery and soldiers equipped with automatic weapons enter homes, kill people, and the main reaction is indifference or words from the Muslim world.
President Moncef Marzouki of Tunisia offered asylum to Assad and promised he could reside safely in his nation. Tunisians support efforts of Syrians to gain power and end the authoritarian regime of Assad. Oh well, over in Afghanistan they are angry about burning holy books. Unfortunately, destroying the lives of fellow Muslims does not rank as high in their view as burning a holy book.
