Arabs, Beware the “Small States” Option

Mideast Shuffle

This article can also be read in Turkish here.

At the heart of all politics lies cold, hard opportunism. New circumstances, changed alliances and unexpected events will always conspire to alter one’s calculations to benefit a core agenda.

In the Middle East today, those calculations are being adjusted with a frequency unseen for decades.

In Egypt and Syria, for instance, popular sentiment is genuinely divided on where alliances and interests lie. Half of Egyptians seem convinced that deposed President Muhammad Morsi is the resident US-Israeli stooge, while the other half believe it is Egypt’s military that is carrying out those foreign agendas.

In Syria the same can be said for Syrians conflicted on whether President Bashar al-Assad or the external-based Syrian National Council (SNC) most benefits Israeli and American hegemonic interests in the region.

But Egyptians and Syrians, who point alternating fingers at Islamists or the state as being tools…

The Dead Angle -by Manuel Ochsenreiter

The Dead Angle -by Manuel Ochsenreiter

The #Syrian_city of #Sednaya, center of Christian pilgrimage and where to the present day, both Muslim and Christian pilgrims come to commemorate the feast day of “Our Lady of Sednaya”, doesn´t appear very often in Western media; almost never. Sednaya is not sexy at all to western journalists. They don´t find there what they are looking for: No “rebels”, nobody complains about the “evil regime” in Damascus, people there talk about peace instead of war. The beautiful #old_monastery built on the rocks of the mountain looks from afar like a fortress. At the first glance Sednaya might be a theme for journalists of tourist magazines or #religious_media. But it is not. Sednaya is the dead angle of a #bloody_war.

When I visited Sednaya a couple of days ago I had my camera and my voice recorder with me. It was not a “touristic tour” at all. I spoke to the people of Sednaya who are at the same time full of hospitality but are hardened and embittered by their experiences of the war that shows its ugly face through shells, mortars, kidnappings, and killings. Sednaya is somehow a “besieged city” surrounded by nests of the so-called “rebels”. The road to Sednaya from Damascus is heavily guarded by the Syrian army. I went to Sednaya via that road with some good friends accompanied by armed escort to the city.

I spoke to those who never appear in western media because their stories do not fit to the storyline of war lies. I also spoke to the men who are insulted in Western media as “Shabiha” and “regime profiteers” because they risk their lives with a gun in their hand every day and every night at the city checkpoints to protect the civilians. They organize themselves in local committees to keep the war outside their city. I met a doctor who treats patients during the day and serves at a checkpoint after sunset with an AK-47 assault rifle. His comrade, a wiry and sun tanned elder man, showed me his scar on his chest from a heart operation, but insists to do his duty as a member of the citizen militia of Sednaya. One of the heads of the committee lost his automotive parts and accessories shop in a suburb of Damascus. Now he protects his city against the aggressors. With a smile on his face he told me that he will of course open his shop again when the war is over. Young men from Sednaya joined the committee to protect their neighborhood.

I met a man in the hospital of Sednaya who was attacked by terrorists while working in the field. His brother died. The attackers came with a motor cycle and opened fire on the two brothers. I spoke to man who was kidnapped by terrorists. His story was heartbreaking. He was for more than three weeks in the hands of a criminal gang that views itself as “armed opposition”, the friends of the West. He was kidnapped for a ransom, nothing else.

I was in the abandoned “Restaurant Paradise” of Sednaya that used to be full of life before the war. Now the walls are full of holes from attacks. “Rebels” were firing at the restaurant from the mountains. The traces of this war in the city itself are clearly visible. Sometimes a mortar falls in Sednaya. Sometimes it kills, sometimes the people are lucky and just a balcony is damaged. Even the old monastery was already attacked by those who claim they fight for “freedom and democracy”.

The war against Sednaya is somehow symbolic. It shows exactly the bloody border between barbarism and civilization. While old and young men defend their hometown full of unique cultural and historical wealth with guns, the West delivers modern arms to those who want to destroy all this. The West supports the barbarism in its fight against civilization and claims that this is for a “good cause”. Indeed, all these stories from the Syrian war are not sexy enough for the mainstream media. This is why Sednaya is in the dead angle.

Elena E Basta:
La città siriana di Sednaya, centro di pellegrinaggio cristiano e dove al giorno d’oggi, pellegrini sia musulmani che cristiani arrivano per commemorare il giorno festivo della “Donna di Sednaya”, non appare molto spesso sui media occidentali; praticamente mai. Sednaya non è attraente per i giornalisti occidentali. Del resto qui non trovano quello che cercano: non ci sono ribelli, nessuno si lagna del “regime demonizzato”di Damasco. La gente qua parla della pace invece della guerra. L’affascinante ed antico monastero costruito sulle roccie della montagna visto da lontano assomiglia ad una fortezza. Al primo sguardo Sednaya potrebbe essere un tema per giornalisti di una rivista turistica o di mete per religiosi. Ma non lo è. Sednaya è l’angolo morto di una guerra sanguinosa.
Quando visitai Sednaya un paio di giorni fà io avevo con me la mia mia fotocamera ed il mio registratore. Il mio non fu per fu per niente un tour turistico. Parlai con gli abitanti di Sednaya che sono allo stesso tempo molto ospitali e temprati dalle loro esperienze di guerra, che trapela in tutta la sua bruttezza da bossoli, mortai, rapimenti, violenze ed omicidi. Sednaya e’ in un certo senso una “citta’ sotto assedio” circondata da nugoli di cosiddetti “ribelli”. La strada per Sednaya da Damasco e’ controllata dall’esercito Siriano. Mi recai a Sednaya attraverso quella strada con alcuni buoni amici ed accompagnato da una scorta armata.
Ho parlato con coloro che non appaiono mai sui media occidentali perché le loro storie non si addicono alla “storyline” della guerra delle menzogne. Ho anche parlato con gli uomini che vengono insultati sui media occidentali come “Shabiha” e “speculatori di regime” perché rischiano la propria vita con un’arma fra le braccia ogni singolo giorno ed ogni singola notte. Ai checkpoint delle citta’ per proteggere i civili. Loro si organizzano autonomamente in comitati locali per mantenere la guerra fuori dai centri abitati. Ho incontrato un medico che They organize themselves in local committees to keep the war outside their city. I met a doctor who cura i propri pazienti durante il giorno e serve ai checkpoint dopo il tramonto con un AK-47 da assalto. Il suo compagno, un duro ed abbronzato anziano signore mi ha mostrato la la sua cicatrice sul petto, ricordo di un’operazione al cuore, ma insiste a prestare servizio come membro della milizia civile di Sednaya. Uno dei capi del comitato ha perso il suo negozio di ricambi auto che aveva nei sobborghi di Damasco. Ora protegge la sua citta’ contro gli aggressori. Con un sorriso sul viso mi ha detto che riaprira’ certamente il suo negozio di nuovo, quando la guerra’ sara’ finita. Giovani ragazzi di Sednaya si sono aggiunti al comitato per proteggere I loro vicini.
Ho incontrato un uomo all’ospedale di Sednaya che e’ stato attacccato dai terroristi mentre lavorava nel suo campo. Suo fratello e’ morto. Gli assassini erano arrivati su una motocicletta ed hanno iniziato a sparare sui due fratelli. Ho parlato con un uomo che fu rapito dai terroristi. La sua storia e’ stata straziante. E’ stato piu’ di tre settimane nelle mani di una banda criminale che si figura come “opposizione armata”, gli amici dell’occidente. Era stato rapito per riscatto, nulla di piu’.

Sono stato nel ristorante abbandonato “#Paradiso” della citta’ di Sednaya che era stato pieno di vita prima della guerra. Ora sui suoi muri e’ pieno di fori di proiettile, memori degli attacchi subiti. I “Ribelli” hanno sparato al ristorante dalle montagne circostanti.
Le tracce di questa Guerra sono chiaramente visibili in citta’. A volte cade un mortaio a Sednaya. A volte e’ mortale, a volte le persone sono fortunate danneggia solo un balcone. Persino il vecchio monastero e’ stato attaccato da coloro che si proclamano combattenti per “a liberta’ e la democrazia”.
La Guerra contro Sednaya e’ in un certo senso simbolica. Fa vedere esattamente il sanguinoso confine fra barbarie e civilizzazione. Mentre vecchi e giovani difendono la loro citta’ natale piena di valenza storica e culturale con le armi, l’Occidente manda altre armi, piu’ moderne, per distruggere tutto cio’. L’Occidente supporta le barbarie nella sua guerra contro la #civilta’ e proclama che lo fa per una “giusta causa”.
Ma tutti questi racconti di guerra Siriana non sono sufficientemente attraenti per i media di tendenza. Questo e’ il motivo perche’ Sednaya e’ nell’angolo della morte.

President Al-Assad’s surprise visit with our Armed Forces in Daria today, to celebrate the 68th Anniversary of the Syrian Arab Army …

President Bashar al-Assad expressed confidence in victory over the aggression targeting Syria thanks to the sacrifices and heroism of the Syrian army.

Addressing the Syrian army and armed forces on the occasion of the 68 anniversary of the Army Foundation Day in a speech published by Jaysh al-Shaab (Army of the People) magazine, President al-Assad saluted the Syrian army ”who is protecting the homeland’s dignity and honor,” lauding its unequalled valor in confronting terrorism.

President al-Assad emphasized the army’s role in safeguarding the cultural identity of the Arab nation and Syria, hailing the mutual bond of confidence between the army and people in what constituted ”the secret of our legendary steadfastness.”

“You have shown the whole world that pressure and conspiracies, no matter how tough and varied, will only make you even more determined to confront challenges, and emphasized that there are sacred principles in Syria based on the interests of the Syrian people and their national and pan-Arab goals,” President al-Assad said.

”Had we in Syria not been confident of victory, we would not have been able to remain steadfast and resist the agression for over two years,” President al-Assad affirmed.

President al-Assad saluted the souls of martyrs and their families and the Syrian people all over Syria.

“Motto-ul armatei siriene a fost intotdeauna”‪#‎Patrie‬ … ‪#‎Onoare‬ … ‪#‎Onestitate‬ iar aici se apără cinstit patria și onoarea acesteia,” a afirmat Domnul ‪#‎Presedinte‬ ‪#‎Bashar_al_Assad‬ in vizita sa la ‪#‎Daraya‬.
“Dușmanul nu a putut ucide mândria și curajul sirian , în ciuda tuturor eforturilor sale … pentru că el a găsit o ‪#‎armată‬ ce nu cunoaște înfrângerea și frica …”

Syrian army’s day-1st of August 2013

Syrian army's day-1st of August 2013

3ashet Suria al Assad!

‪#‎President_Bashar_al_Assad‬ stressed Thursday that the enemy, despite all of its attempts and those standing behind it, has failed to kill the pride and courage of the Syrians as it found itself faced with an army that knows no defeat nor fear.

During inspecting a unit of the armed forces in ‪#‎Daraya‬ city in ‪#‎Damascus‬ Countryside on the occasion of the Syrian Arab Army’s Day, marked on August 1st of every year, President al-‪#‎Assad‬ said the Syrian army has spread fear in the terrorists’ hearts and has protected the homeland and is still doing so.

He added that history will record what the Syrian army members are doing today as the whole world are now talking about the Syrian Arab Army.

“Your motto has always been ‘Homeland…Honor…Honesty’, and here you are honestly defending the homeland and its honor,” President al-Assad said.

Deputy Commander-in-Chief of the Army and Armed Forces and Minister of Defense, Gen. Fahd Jassem al-Freij, on Thursday extended a salute to the brave members of the Syrian Arab Army, stressing that the Syrian army is fighting terrorism on behalf of the whole world.

“We have been confident from the very beginning in the ability to achieve victory; otherwise Syria would have not held its ground,” said Gen. al-Fraeij in a phone call with the Syrian Television on the 68th anniversary of the foundation of the Syrian Arab Army.

The Minister said Syria is not only engaged in a war against terrorism and terrorists, but it is in confrontation with Arab and regional ruling systems and is fighting terrorism on behalf of the entire world.

He stressed that the armed forces, on their day, renew their pledge to continue to go all the way until restoring security and stability to all parts of the homeland and getting it rid of the evils of international terrorism.

He added that the Syrian army is the honest guarantor of the Arabs’ just causes after the enemies have succeeded in weakening other Arab armies.

“Our destiny in Syria is to be steadfast and to remain the beacon and the model to all those who want to know about legendary steadfastness,” the Minister said, stressing that Syria will continue to be the defender of the Arabs and the Arab honor and identity.

He noted that the power of the Syrian army has always been and continues to be the top preoccupation of Syria’s enemies, particularly the Zionist entity that has usurped Palestine, who are seeking to target this army.

“Yet, despite all the support and funds, the enemy has failed and its mercenaries have failed too and their dreams were destroyed thanks to our army’s steadfastness,” Gen. al-Freij stressed.

He added that the Syrian army has carried the pan-Arab responsibility on its shoulder for decades and offered a lot of blood and men in defense of its convictions and people, which did not please the enemies “to whom we say: Our army will continue to teach lessons in patriotism, and no one will be able to break it as it will continue to chase the terrorists wherever they are.”

He pointed out that the Israeli enemy has tried to stay behind the front seeking to weaken Syria through its agents on the ground who soon started to be vanquished, which promoted a direct aggression by the enemy to help its terrorists to hold their ground.

The Minister said that the mask fell off the face of the Zionist enemy as its role in the aggression on Syria has been exposed, with all the indications of its involvement through its blatant attacks and support for the terrorist groups are now seen by the whole world.

Gen. al-Freij said that although the price that has been paid in the war against the homeland is expensive, but it is still much less than what was planned for Syria, adding that Syria has realized from the start that the price for preserving dignity is very high, but at the same time it has been confident in the ability to achieve victory.

The Minister lauded the successes and great achievements of the Syrian soldiers which have amazed the whole world.

He explained that confronting imported terrorism is an open process that exceeds the conventional war and guerrilla and street warfare to reach various types of information, intelligence, psychological and media warfare “in which the Syrian soldier has proved being psychologically and morally immune and capable of facing dangers and threats with composure, a high sense of self-confidence and an ability to achieve victory.”

He affirmed that the most dangerous and difficult at this stage has been overcome, adding however that “as long as the flow of and support to the gunmen continue by many countries , the Syrian Arab army can’t lag in performing its constitutional and national duties.”

The Syrian army, Gen. al-Freij reiterated, will continue to hunt the terrorists wherever they are in defense of the security of the homeland and citizens.

“On its day, the army affirms that its compass remains one and the same, its watchful eye is still the same and its rifle has not lost and will never lose its aim regardless of the varied masks of the enemies,” he added.

The Minister congratulated President Bashar al-Assad, the armed forces members and the Syrian people on this day, expressing his great pride in being a member of “this great army with its history, achievements and heroism.”

Le président al-Assad : L’ennemi n’avait pas pu liquider la ‪#‎dignité‬ ni le courage des ‪#‎Syriens‬ en dépit de toutes ses tentatives

01 Août 2013

Banlieue de Damas / Le président Bachar al-Assad, ‪#‎commandant_en_chef_de_l_armée‬ et des forces armées, a affirmé que ce que fait actuellement l’armée arabe syrienne sera enregistré dans l’histoire et que tout le monde parle de cette armée dont le slogan était toujours “Patrie, Honneur et Fidélité”, soulignant que l’armée arabe syrienne défend actuellement la patrie et son honneur en toute fidélité.

Se rendant aujourd’hui à #Daraya dans la banlieue de ‪#‎Damas‬ où il a visité une unité de l’armée à l’occasion de l’anniversaire de la fondation de l’armée arabe syrienne, le président al-Assad a fait savoir que l’ennemi n’avait pas pu liquider la dignité et le courage des Syriens en dépit de toutes ses tentatives et de celles des parties qui le soutiennent, car il a trouvé une armée qui ne connaît point la défaite ni la peur, une armée qui a semé la panique dans les cœurs des ‪#‎terroristes‬, protégé et protège toujours la ‪#‎patrie
