The ferocity of death in Syria increases with each passing day. At times one is left bewildered at the desire of President Bashar al-Assad to murder at will the citizens of his own nation. Syrian human rights activist, Hadi Abdallah reported about a massacre of women and children in the villages of Karm el-Zaytoun and Ali-Adwiyeh. The bodies of 26 women and 21 children lay on the ground. “Some of the children had been hit with blunt objects on their head, one little girl had been mutilated and some women were raped and then killed.”
The silence of imams is deafening. They are so busy running around worrying about cartoons rather than gathering in a march into Syria to defend the dying people of that land. We are all Syrians until this bloodshed ends.
