  1. I assume your husband is the father of your children, so maybe you should be asking 'What about our children?' Are you next going to be asking, what about my home?. Odd that given there is 'No compulsion in Religion', yet your husband, who has done nothing wrong ( you said he was a 'good man', except choosing not to convert to a religion you have chosen to convert to, which is his God given right ) is now going to loose his wife, your children and likely your home. Maybe as its who feels so strongly about this conversion, and it was your choice alone, you should not punish your good husband in such a manner, and instead leave the children with your husband, in the family home and you move out?
  2. Syrian News Hollywood Productions :lol: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_IDRNSM5xJ4 The faked up Syrian News video tries and makes it look like that he camera that was filming the big scene ( a large number of people taking part in a riot or protest ), suddenly spots and zooms in on a small wooded area where gunmen are hiding :lol: . Not continuous footage, but a break in the filming, i.e a different bit of footage added onto the original clip. In the terrorist section of the clip, here are a few questions for you. Why with the powerful zoom camera being used did the cameraman never once zoom out a bit to show the protesters these 'armed terrrorists' were supposedly shooting at, or pan the camera to the left a bit to show these protesters, and then pan back to 'armed terrorists'?. Even for a few seconds? Why when these 'armed terrorists' seemingly spot the cameraman and shoot at the cameraman is their no flinch or movement of the camera on the terrorists, so cameraman has been spotted by these 'armed terrorists' and shot at and never moves the camera an inch off target of flinches one bits?. Maybe he is Syria's Rambo :lol: I'll tell you the reason why. That scene with the 'armed terrorists' was filmed in a location well away from that protest ( probably in Assads back garden :lol: ), and the cameraman knew those 'terrorists' would not be aiming right at him ( or likely firing blanks ) , as the cameraman was Syrian soldier and the 'armed terrorists' were Syrian soldiers dressed up in terrorist clothes to try and look like terrorists!!
  3. So is a secular Ba'athist ruling dictatorship with monarchy like father to son transfer of power, and family members holding important positions :D
  4. Its more to do with public shame to family. If it goes court and father/brother/uncle etc.. are mentioned in local newspapers and media as being found guilty of abusing daughter/sister/niece etc.. it will be public knowledge around the community etc... that is a major reason why abuse is not reported. One of my female housemates when I lived in Cowley in Oxford was working in a centre supporting women who had been abused, from physical by husband, down to abuse as a child. She said although many sought help in these centres, very few were ever willing to make a police statement for family shame reasons, and some young women from 'close communities' reckoned that reporting it would also badly damage their marriage opportunities in those 'close communities'
  5. Percentage wise, the abuse by a small proportion of celibate priests, is tiny compared with the overall picture of child abuse, which usually happens in the family, by fathers, brothers, uncles. Reason why its less in Muslim community is likely due to lack of reporting, as to not bring shame on the family.
  6. Its ironic that Syria should make such a BIG flag, especially when the Zionist Israel done similar and hold the record http://www.haaretz.com/news/giant-israeli-flag-breaks-world-record-for-largest-in-world-1.233957 Syrian regime and Israeli regime have so much in common at the moment :D
  7. Did you friend care to mention whether pro-govt rallies were allowed and let march on peacefully, and anti-gov rallies allowed to do the same?. Did he travel to cities outside of Damascus?. Did he mention to you Article 8 of the Syrian constitution?. Are you saying Robert Fisk article about Syria is all lies, whereas his article about Bahrain ( that Bahrain wants to sue Independent newspaper over ) is true?
  8. Are all these countries listed in link below slaves to Russia?. Why have Russian bases in their countries? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Russian_military_bases_abroad
  9. Calling the Supreme Leader, Ministers, Majlis and Friday prayer leaders traitors?. You are a Zionist for sure!! :lol:
  10. Its a shame the Supreme Leader does not trust him to select his own Vice Presidents, to decide which Ministers he thinks are doing their job well and remove them if not, the Majlis are not happy with him on lots of issues, and Ayatollahs leading Friday prayers threaten that his wife will be made 'haram' to him if he does not do what he is told. Yeah, he will need Allah to protect him alright!!
  11. Great article by Robert Fisk in the Independent on Syria http://www.independent.co.uk/opinion/commentators/fisk/robert-fisk-the-people-vs-the-president-2294383.html Robert Fisk: The people vs the president Syria in turmoil as resistance turns to insurrection Syria's revolt against the rule of President Bashar al-Assad is turning into an armed insurrection, with previously peaceful demonstrators taking up arms to fight their own army and the "shabiha" – meaning "the ghosts", in English – of Alawi militiamen who have been killing and torturing those resisting the regime's rule. Even more serious for Assad's still-powerful supporters, there is growing evidence that individual Syrian soldiers are revolting against his forces. The whole edifice of Assad's Alawi dictatorship is now in the gravest of danger. In 1980, Assad's father, Hafez, faced an armed uprising in the central city of Hama, which was put down by the Special Forces of Hafez's brother Rifaat – who is currently living, for the benefit of war crimes investigators, in central London – at a cost of up to 20,000 lives. But the armed revolt today is now spreading across all of Syria, a far-mightier crisis and one infinitely more difficult to suppress. No wonder Syrian state television has been showing the funerals of up to 120 members of the security services from just one location, the northern town of Jisr al-Shughour. The first evidence of civilians turning to weapons to defend their families came from Deraa, the city where the bloody story of the Syrian uprising first began after intelligence officers arrested and tortured to death a 13-year-old boy. Syrians arriving in Beirut told me the male citizens of Deraa had grown tired of following the example of peaceful Tunisian and Egyptian protesters – an understandable emotion since people in those countries suffered nothing like the brutal suppression meted out by Assad's soldiers and militiamen – and were now sometimes "shooting back" for the sake of "dignity" and to protect their wives and children. Bashar and his cynical brother Maher – the present-day equivalent of the outrageous Rifaat – may now be gambling on the old dictator's saw that their regime must be defended against armed Islamists supported by al-Qa'ida, a lie which was perpetrated by Muammar Gaddafi and the now-exiled leaders Ali Abdullah Saleh of Yemen and Ben Ali of Tunisia and Hosni Mubarak of Egypt and the still-on-the-throne al-Khalifas of Bahrain. The few al-Qa'ida cells in the Arab world may wish this to be true, but the Arab revolt is about the one phenomenon in the Middle East uncontaminated by "Islamism". Only the Israelis and the Americans may be tempted to believe otherwise. Al Jazeera television yesterday aired extraordinary footage of a junior Syrian officer calling upon his comrades to refuse to continue massacring civilians in Syria. Identified as Lt Abdul-Razak Tlas, from the town of Rastan, he said he had joined the army "to fight the Israeli enemy", but found himself witnessing a massacre of his own people in the town of Sanamein. "After what we've seen from crimes in Deraa and all over Syria, I am unable to continue with the Syrian Arab army," he announced. "I urge the army, and I say: 'Is the army here to steal and protect the Assad family?' I call upon all honourable officers to tell their soldiers about the real picture, use your conscience... if you are not honourable, stay with Assad." Differentiating rumour from fact in Syria is getting easier by the week. More Syrians are reaching the safety of Lebanon and Turkey to tell their individual stories of torture and cruelty in security police barracks and in plain-clothes police cells. Some are still using the telephone from Syria itself – one to describe explosions in Jisr al-Shughour and of bodies being tossed into the river from which the town takes its name. For well over a month, I have been watching Syrian television's nightly news and at least half the broadcasts have included funerals of dead soldiers. Now Syria itself declares that 120 have been killed in one incident, an incredible loss for an army that was supposed to instill horror into the minds of the country's protesters. But then the supposedly invincible Syrian army often showed itself woefully unable to suppress Lebanese militias during the country's 1975-90 civil war. An entire battalion of Syrian Special Forces troops was driven out of east Beirut, for example, by a ragtag group of Christian militias who would have been crushed by any serious professional army. If you wish to destroy unarmed civilians, you shoot them down in the street and then shoot down the funeral mourners and then shoot down the mourners of the dead mourners – which is exactly what Assad's gunmen have been doing – but when the resistors shoot back, the Syrian army has shown a quite different response: torture for their prisoners and fear in the face of the enemy. But if the armed insurrection takes hold, then it is also the 11 per cent Alawi community – once the frontier force of the French mandate against the Sunnis and now the prop of Assad against the poorer Sunnis – which is at threat. So appalled is the Assad regime at its enemies that it has been encouraging Palestinians to try to cross the frontier wire on Israeli-occupied Golan. The Israelis say this is to divert world attention from the massacres in Syria – and they are absolutely right. The Damascus government's Tishrin newspaper has been suggesting that 600,000 Palestinians may soon try to "go home" to the lands of Palestine from which the Israelis drove them in 1948, a nightmare the Israelis would prefer not to think about – but not as great a nightmare as that now facing the people and their oppressors in Syria itself.
  12. Well its shows it works both ways. Mubarak and his inner circle were corrupt billionaires that was pro-Israel and pro-West, so that is why the West supported him and Iran/Leb/Hez wanted him gone. Assad and his inner cirlce are corrupt billionaires that are pro-Iran, pro-Leb/Hez, and probably actually quite neutral action wise regarding Israel. So that is why the West would like him gone and Iran/Leb/Hez want him to stay. Mubarak and Assad, character/person wise and actions wise ( killing protesters ) are no different, its just who they are allied with that determines who supports them and who does not. Assad could be a gay atheist and Iran/Hez would still sing his praises. The reason why there is no real alternative in Syria, and we keep hearing that as a reason why Assad must stay is totally the fault of the Assad regime and nobody else, as they have made any form of poitical opposition illegal, and will no doubt continue to do so, as that always give people a reason to say, "What will happen if the regime falls?, too many unknowns etc...."
  13. Good to see Noah's Nothing still Noah's Nothing :lol: . Take for example "Today, Syria's Baathists serve Muslims" It mainly serves and helped create the Billionaire extended Assad family, who seems to hold all the top jobs in Syria. In particular the corrupt cousin Rami Makhlouf whose wealth would even make Mubarak look like a pauper. When applying for lucrative contracts or jobs from Syrian government, all that counts is the field that say 'Are you a relative of Assad' Yes or No. Here is what Assads cousin Rami Makhlouf has to say about Syria and Israel. http://previous.presstv.ir/detail.aspx?id=179391&sectionid=351020206 "If there is no stability here, there's no way there will be stability in Israel; no way; and nobody can guarantee what will happen after, God forbid, anything happens to this regime,” So the stability of Israel is linked to the corrupt Assad regime staying in power. Yeah, its no wonder Noah's Nothing supports the regime :lol: Yeah, look on a 'Shia' forum about the overthrow of a dictator that has been very friendly towards 'Shia' Iran and 'Shia' Hezbollah, and wonder why they dont support the overthrow of that dictator Assad. Hmmm.. cant imagine why, let me think on that a bit longer :lol: I support the people of Bahrain against their dictator, but show how the sometimes false news stories regarding what crimes Bahrain are doing are fine, but if a false news story appears from Syria ( where foreign reporters and journalists are banned ), its all zionist made up lies. What blatant double standards!!
  14. Assad and his corrupt billionaire extended family regime have made no effort to get back the Golan heights by force. They are happy sitting back comfortably in their palaces and dont want to rock the boat, when they all have it so good. Yeah, Israel is really terrified of Assad :lol: so much so they sent some jets into Syria to destroy a building ( its purpose yet to be fully identified ) and Assads forces did not retaliate but he just sent his envoys to cry at the UN security council about it. Israel are quaking in their boots about Syria LOL :lol:
