Syrian Refugees: “We Want Netanyahu to Take Bashar Assad and Kill Him.”


Alternative headline: Peace Arrives in Middle East as Sunnis and Shiites Discover They Hate Each Other More Than They Hate Jews

Mohammed and Fatima Alskka fled the embattled Syrian city of Homs seven months ago and today live in Pasadena, Maryland. They were taking a stroll in the Monday afternoon sun, pushing a stroller along 17th Street, stopping to take the occasional picture with their newborn, Khaled.

When they passed by the mini-demonstration they had no idea what the protesters were yelling about.

They were informed that the Israeli prime minister was visiting the White House, and a surprised smile appeared on their faces. “Tell him we say ‘Hi,’” Mohammed, 30, said.

“We want Netanyahu to take Bashar Assad and kill him,” chimed in his wife, Fatima, as she held her son, “because he killed a lot of my people.”

Not Netanyahu’s job, but apparently with Obama and Cameron out of it, they’ll take anyone to pinch hit. Even Netanyahu.

“You know what Bashar and his friends say?” Mohammed asked, in halting English. “You don’t like Bashar, you like Israel.” He and his wife loathe Assad, he took pains to stress, but that does not mean they are spies for Israel.

For all the understandable revulsion at Assad, why the greetings for Israel’s prime minister?

“Israelis don’t kill anyone in Syria,” Fatima said, placing Khaled back in his stroller, as he had started getting antsy. She’d heard reports about the Jewish state treating wounded Syrian civilians in its hospitals, and wasn’t entirely sure of their veracity, she said, “but we know Israel doesn’t kill any Syrians. Bashar killed my family.”

The couple was pretty much unfazed about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, saying it had caused “just” 2,000 deaths, while the Syrian civil war had killed “more than 200,000” people in less than three years.

Well yes. Maybe they can explain that to someone at the UN. Incidentally the Palestinian Arab death toll in Syria appears to have hit 1,597.

“They always said, ‘Israel not a friend, Israel not a friend.’ But Israel never made any problem with anybody,” Mohammed asserted.

The same is true for the US, Fatima added.

Growing up in Syria, they were constantly taught that Americans are evil. But now, after she and her husband entered the country on a tourist visa — and have started a process to be recognized as refugees — she had changed her mind.

She had only one word for American hospitality, she said: “Wow.”

Saudi Arabia only accepted very few Syrian refugees, but the Americans are entirely different, she said gratefully.

Unfortunately yes. Americans are entirely different.

    One of the problems with Muslim refugees is that they bring that dreaded Islamic baggage with them….

  • hrwolfe

    No, No this would not be American exceptionalism in any way shape or form is it? I wonder if they would assimilate or seek to tear down what offered them help and hope.

  • Gee

    Muslims need to solve their own problems. It is neither Israel’s job nor desire to have anything at all to do with Syria

    • Veracious_one

      or Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Iran, Iraq, Chad , Yemen, Somalia, or any other Muslim Country….Israel loves peace and freedom…Muslims don’t…

    Our embassies turn away persecuted Christians and other persecuted non-Muslims and instead import many millions of Muslims.

    Look at the Christian woman in the pic. She has been partially scalped by US backed Muslims and is bent over in great agony. Does anyone know if this woman is still alive? SYRIA: When they aren’t beheading them, Obama-backed al-Qaeda rebels are humiliating the Christians

    The deteriorating situation in Syria
    is rapidly spiraling out of control and creating a hell for Syrian
    Christians, far worse anything the mainstream US media are reporting, or
    the Obama Regime is acknowledging. Below, a Christian woman is tied to a
    pillar in Aleppo by an al-Qaeda linked gang and left with a note
    encouraging bypassers to spit on her….

    I hope the comment I just posted a minute ago will get posted!

    Under Assad, Christians lived in safety in Syria. Christians are now under massive attack. God help them!

      But does safety include persecution? Are you safe when you’re a persecuted minority in an islamic state? You should qualify that statement and say that Christians were relatively safer under Assad.

      • LindaRivera

        Corrrect. Christians were relatively much safer under Assad.

        • Freeway1996

          Christians, who are a substantial 3 million in Syria, are given many opportunities under Assad’s government. If Assad goes, Syria’s secular system that WORKS will collapse. Anyone who doesn’t adhere to the extremist Sunni doctrine will be persecuted and murdered. Just look at Iraq.

          • LindaRivera

            Innocents are much, much safer under SECULAR governments.

            The wicked U.S. leaders’ goal is the destabilization of countries and the replacement of governments with hardline Muslim terrorists and full sharia law.

            Obama is a Sunni Muslim and is Muslim Brotherhood. Obama’s George Soros administration is creating death, destruction and dreadful suffering in country after country.

    The Syrian “refugees”–or more accurately, defeated jihadists–may want Israel to kill Bashar al-Assad, but I don’t see how that would be in Israel’s interest. A Sunni victory in Syria would put Israel in the same position as the Kingdom of Jerusalem after Saladin forcibly converted Egypt from Shiite to Sunni and unified it with Syria. The last thing Israel needs is a unified enemy. The more Sunni-Shiite strife, the better–it may even sour some Muslims on Islam altogether. Just keep the “refugees” out of Western countries.

    Many Muslims, notably Alawites and Shiites are being murdered by Sunni extremists. We need to take out the Wahhabi/Salafi ideology and the best way is to hit their financial backers in Saudi Terror Arabia.
