Sadness Of Syria

One can only cry for the beloved country of Syria in these times of violence and oppression. The world was prepared to offer support for those being murdered by President Bashar al-Assad, but Russia and China vetoed any attempt at action in the UN Security Council. Naturally, two nations which are essentially under the control of authoritarian folk refused to allow action against an authoritarian ruler. Even as they issued their veto, guns in Syria were being replaced by mortar shells and hundreds were now dead.

Death is now the common event in Syria. Those who dare expressing ideas for their rights are killed. It would be wonderful if hundreds of imams from the Middle East marched into Syria in the name of their religion, but we doubt if that event will ever occur. Where are demonstrations in support for Syria in Muslim nations is the real question? Of course, if some newspaper printed a cartoon depicting Mohammad, they would be in the streets.
