Where’s the Flotilla to Syria?

Pages: 1 2

Israel lives in a tough neighborhood – just recently in Syria security forces shot and killed 12 factory workers returning home from work in a bus near the town of Qusayr, marking the third massacre reported from Syria in the last week — including the execution-style murder of 13 men near the eastern city of Deir Elzour and the house-to-house killings of 108 people, mostly children and women, in the township of Houla in Homs province.

There’s been an uprising against President Bashar Assad for the better part of a year – and the silence has been absolutely deafening from the many supposedly concerned about peace in the Middle East and human rights organizations. We have heard so much about the desperate need for “aid” flotillas to the poor people of Gaza – but where are those organizations today? The great peace folks of the Middle East, including Peter Beinart – where are you?

Such silence even though so many have been butchered? Could one imagine the media and Public Relations outcry if the IDF fired upon a funeral? There’s a sickening double standard against Israel – and a complete lack of understanding of the barbarians which surround Israel.

A simple Google search for “Syrian flotilla” will show that an Iranian flotilla arrived that is providing training to Iran’s navy, as joint training exercises have been conducted between Iran and Syria.  A large Russian naval flotilla was also stationed in a Syrian port last month as a show of solidarity by Russia to President Bashar al-Assad of Syria.

    There's a different kind of double-standard at play here…

    I broke bread with my liberal brothers over the weekend and to my surprise, both are apparently advocates of intervention in Syria. The surprise stems from the fact that both were previously strident opponents of the regime-change in Iraq. What is so different – I mused to myself – between Bush trying to remove Saddam's boot from the neck of the Iraqi people and Obama trying to remove Assad's boot from the neck of the Syrian people? Apparently, it is the fact that the former policy emanated from a hated entity – Bush – while the latter policy emanates from a beloved one, Obama.

    I asked them: "Do we really want to facilitate the Muslim Brotherhood conquest of Syria?"

    "They're killing children"…was the response.

    Well, if THAT's the rational, why aren't my bros advocating invasion of North Korea, Sudan, Zimbabwe and elsewhere? Surely, children are being killed in THESE hellholes!

    We need to stay the hell out of Syria and let the chips there fall where they may. A prolonged Civil war may just keep the Arab/Muslim world preoccupied.

    Burn a koran , or fling one across the room and you get the murderous barbarians to riot burn down buildings and kill people , SLAUGHTER 13000 or so , men women and children , and muslims sit there one hand scratching their heads , the other scratching their asssses .

  • Amused

    …and YES , stay the hell out of Syria …economic isloation will take its course . But someone needs to buy a roll of duct tape for Sen. McCain .

    Mr. Torossian should stick to hyping up his small PR company. As a political analyst, his credentials are nil. The insurgency in Syria is being fomented by the United States, Israel, Saudi Arabia and Al Qaeda together. That is quite different from the nationalistic ambitions of the Palestinians, and people know the difference.

    • stern

      Quite right. The Syrians are killing each other. The Palestinians are killing Jews.

    I didn't have to read the article, the title said it all.
    Just where are all the bleeding hearts crying over the poor oppressed Syrians.
    Israel closes a checkpoint & their front & center, Syria murders 1000's of its own people & they cower in obscurity, knowing that if they dare enter enter the country & challenge the regime they would get a bullet between the eyes.
    The hypocracy of the leftist mindset in so bent, I'm surprised they don't just walk in circles.
    C'mon you gutless bastards, jump on your boats to Syria, it will be easy if you dream there Jew's.

      why are you so concerned about the leftists? Why are you not concerned about the Syrians getting killed every day? Why not spend you energy to organize a flotilla?

    Hi , The article "http://ghadry.com/2011/04/24/where-is-your-syrian-humanitarian-flotilla-erdogan"

    is completely scrubbed from the web even the google cashe is 'unavailable'.

  • Zionista

    Wait! They'll get around to it as soon as they have their anti-war demos just like they did when President Bush was in office.

  • Ron Karsh, Tel Aviv

    if Ronn is so concerned about the Syrians, he should simply start his own flotilla. But he isn't concerned that people are getting slaughtered in Syria. Not even a little bit. The article reflects a primitive, low and small-village mind.

    I cannot recall when in all the previous years of my live if ever a good word has been said about Syria. Syria is just going through a normal phase of killing each other in between their efforts to kill Jews. With any luck they may be preventing their ability to kill Jews for years to come.

    Ronn Torossian is probably Armenian, like myself, so I am shocked that he would implicitly call for the Muslim Brotherhood dominated so-called Syrian opposition to come to power. Armenians in Syria are deathly afraid that Assad will fall, that the Muslim Brotherhood and Salafis will come to power and institute their 'reign of terror'. Sure, Assad is not a nice guy, but he has been good for the Armenians and other Christians in Syria and others. Since Torossian is with a PR firm he probably knows that many of the reports in the US media about Syrian government killings were actually done by the Syrian (terrorist) opposition. The MB and Salafis know how to manipulate the Western media, like they did in the Balkans (remember Ruder-Finn, laughing in an interview how they used PR in the US to convince Jews in the US of Serb genocide while the Ruder-Finn clients were mass murdering Jews, Serbs, Roma, and others). While the MB and Salafis bomb and kill Christians in Syria Torossian supports the enemies of the Armenians in Syria.
