Death continues in Syria as hundreds more civilians are killed and their bodies dumped in local mosques. Land mines are being placed along border areas in order to blow up those fleeing massacres in their towns. At least 8,000 are dead and the toll daily increases. Meanwhile, Russia insists on continuing to provide the murderous regime of President Bashar al-Assad with more and more weapons. Deputy Defense Minister, Anatoly Antonov joyfully defended his nation’s program of aid. “Russian enjoys good and strong military technical cooperation with Syria and we see no reason today to reconsider it. Russian-Syrian cooperation is perfectly legitimate.”
Legitimate yes, morally, no. Russia has no interest in ending slaughter of the innocent since it makes money from death and destruction. We call upon all Muslim nations of the world to cease any form of trade with Russia!
