Syrian opposition: Anti-Israel rioters paid $1,000
Ynet News ^ | 6/5/11 | Staff

Protestors for hire? Demonstrators along the Syria-Israel border were paid thousands of dollars by President Bashar Assad's regime to take part in Sunday's riots, Syrian opposition activists charge. Israeli officials later reinforced the claims, accusing the Syrian regime of encouraging protests along the northern border. Sunday’s riots were an attempt "to divert attention away from the massacre in Syria,” one official charged. "The Syrians will be held accountable for these events.” (Snip) Opposition activists noted that such tactics were previously used by Iraqi tyrant Saddam Hussein when the Ba'ath Party leader offered a $25,000 reward to the families of Palestinians

Sure. Rent-a-mobs are quite common in Third World hellholes, and even in some civilized countries like India and the United States of America.

Old Roman technique used in 1st Century BC —to destroy the Republic and create a dictatorship. When Pompey would go out to give a speech....a political opponent would bribe the masses to yell, call him vulgar names, shut him up, etc. It was a time of assassinations and no Just Law. All laws were to enrich the elite who made them....no balance of power and they would make up rules
whenever it benefited the officials. Poor got poorer and the rich got richer...as Thatcher was so good at pointing out the problems in a Marxist and corrupt political systems.

.It is the Marxist/Alinsky tactic. It is mob rule and Acorn-unions-feminist groups-homosexual groups are all Marxist agitators who what to destroy Truth.

I would not be surprised to learn that the Romans didn't invent it, either. In any case, it's SOP for thugs, tyrants, and those who wish to become tyrants. It's a form of terrorism. That Assad is using this tactic is no surprise.

A bullet only costs a few cents. The Israelis are getting a good deal and lots of target practice. Assad is getting rid of his crazies/unreliables, an old Red Chinese trick from their Civil War and the Korean War.

You couldn’t make up this stuff if you tried.

A win-win-win-win situation?

Israel gets rid of enemies. Assad gets rid of enemies. The families get rid of losers that they don’t want anyways. The families get more money than they could have earned by working. What’s not to like?

Divert attention? Surely not the MSM’s attention. They never paid it any.
