57 medical centers & hospitals have been targeted by Syrian & Russian bombers since February 2019. Do the so-called socialists who support Syrian & Russian bombing of civilians & hospitals have any ready quotes from Lenin, Marx, or Engels that they think will cover these war crimes? Or are Lenin, Marx, & Engels waiting to fry those fat ‘socialist’ asses in hell when they go knocking on the pearly gates? Not even the dead like having their ideas misrepresented to serve war & fascism.

There are many gruesome photos from the bombing of Idlib showing small children dismembered by barrel bombs, the oil barrels with explosives & shrapnel being dropped by Syrian & Russian bombers. They’re too gruesome & disrespectful to post even to counter the rabid propagandists who would claim the children are terrorists or ‘crisis actors’ trained to play dead by the White Helmets.

So we post this appeal from a child in Idlib that wherever we are we make a placard, rally, post protests on social media, or in some way show our support for the civilians of Idlib in the monstrous bombing campaign against them.

Stop the bombing! Stop the war against the Syrian Arab Spring uprising.

There are protests today against Syrian & Russian bombing of Idlib, Hama, & Aleppo taking place in Paris, London, Ankara, Berlin, Washington DC, Sao Paulo, Dublin, Brussels, Amsterdam, Geneva, Sarajevo, Skopje, Tirana, Srinagar, & of course they continue in Idlib.

Stop the bombing! Stop the war against the Syrian Arab Spring uprising!

“People of Syria have our unconditional solidarity, as do all people suffering under tyrannical regimes.

“Let us all show support to the people of besieged Idlib (Syria) with our messages of love and solidarity.”

–Tweeted this morning by Jammu Kashmir Coalition of Civil Society (JKCCS)

Just who are we to believe in the propaganda war against the Syrian Arab Spring? The Assad regime & its stable of Leni Riefenstahl wannabes who claim Syria, Russia, & Iran are only engaged in bombing & killing “al-Qaeda Salafi-jihadi terrorists”? Or thousands of Syrian civilians, many internally displaced or in diaspora, protesting against the bombing of civilians & demanding the ouster of the Assad dictatorship?

Assadists & their guppies claim (& one of them dared claim on my wall) that Abdul Baset al-Sarout ‘cut off the head of a Palestinian child & took a photo & video celebrating it; that the child begged him to shoot him rather than cut his head off but al-Sarout & his friends insisted on beheading’. But thousands of Syrians in diaspora & those protesting the bombing in Idlib, Hama, & Aleppo are coming out in the streets while Syrian & Russian bombs rain down to honor the contributions of Abdul Baset al-Sarout to the Arab Spring against the Assad dictatorship. Only the politically corrupt would listen to the deranged vituperations of propagandists over the voices of the oppressed.

We honor Abdul Baset al-Sarout. May he Rest In Peace.

Concerning Iran’s alleged attack on the Japanese oil tankers: for Assadists, if all else fails in their analytical skills, “Mossad did it.” Because of course, to Assadists & other anti-Semites, Jews are behind all the evils in the world. The UAE & Saudis, now engaged in over four years of bombing Yemen to smithereens, are incapable of such treachery on their own? Shame on those who can’t see through this hatred for Jews & Arabs.

Physicians for Human Rights documented 573 attacks on health facilities in Syria since 2011. Syrian & Russian forces account for 516 of those attacks. At least 890 medical professionals have been killed in Syria between 2011 & 2018. There isn’t much point to calling out these attacks as illegal under international law when those laws are unenforceable & when they are only one among hundreds of human rights crimes that are the very nature of war.

Internally displaced Syrians are protesting in the Aleppo countryside today demanding Syrian & Russian bombing cease, the downfall of the Assad regime, & rejecting another phony ‘truce’ Russia just signed but continues to ignore. In this placard, they honor Abdul Baset al-Sarout who was killed on June 8th in a confrontation with the Syrian army.

It’s been repeatedly reported that Syrian & Russian bombers are targeting those cities in Idlib, Hama, & Aleppo most prominent in the Arab Spring uprising & which have put up the stiffest political resistance to the Assad dictatorship. So it is an act of extreme courage & defiance that these protesters would go public rather than hide in bunkers or flee for their lives.

Stop the bombing! Stand with the people of Idlib, Hama, & Aleppo!
