Syrian Forces Kill 40 As Arab League Denounces Attack The Arab League has sent an urgent message to the Syrian government denouncing 'the continued killings of civilians'
28 October 2011
Syrian security forces opened fire on protesters following Friday afternoon prayers, killing at least 40 civilians, according to activists.
After what was one of the bloodiest days in seven months of protests, Arab ministers sent their strongest message yet calling for an end to civilian killings.
The Arab League's committee on the Syrian crisis said it had sent an "urgent message ... to the Syrian government expressing its severe discontent for the continued killing of Syrian civilians".
The committee said in a statement it had "expressed the hope that the Syrian government would take action to protect civilians".
Forces acting for President Bashar al-Assad were reported to have chased protesters and conducted house-to-house raids following the end of prayers in the central cities of Hama and Homs, which have seen an emerging armed insurgency.
One activist, Mustafa Osso, told the Associated Press that Syrian forces opened fire on as many as 2,000 people who had gathered to protest. "There was a very fierce reaction to the protests in Homs. There are many injured as well. Hospitals are having a hard time coping with the casualties," he said.

Hell, it seems like the only folks that can get way with civilian murder these days is Barack Hussein Obama and Iran. What’s the deal man?
You forget about Hamas, Hezbolla, and the PlO.
They kill 10 of their own for every one ‘Infidel’ they murder, and yet the entire world always gives them a pass.
Nah, how could I forget about the Musloom Bro-hood that easily? Our esteemed pres o'bama worships the ground they urinate on.
It’s time for pelosi to go talk to Assad again.
Pakistan is effectively controlled by the Taliban, they are just waiting until we get out of the neighborhood to grab the nukes.
WASHINGTON, April 24 (UPI) — The good news is that Taliban militants have agreed to pull out of the Buner district of Pakistan, which had put them only 60 to 70 miles from the national capital, Islamabad. The bad news is that they remain firmly established in the neighboring Swat Valley, only 100 miles from the capital.
The growing power of the extreme Islamic Taliban in Pakistan continues to confound the Obama administration, just as it did the Bush administration before it.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton blasted the Pakistani government of President Asif Ali Zardari on Wednesday for failing to confront the radical Islamic insurgents challenging it. She told the House Foreign Affairs Committee that Zardari was “basically abdicating to the Taliban.” But she and President Barack Obama don’t seem to know what to do to reverse the disintegration of Pakistan either.
Earlier this week Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., told editors and reporters at USA Today that more than three months into office, the Obama team still had not managed to come up with any coherent strategy for restoring stability to the populous Muslim, nuclear-armed power.
“Pakistan is in a moment of peril,” Kerry, the Democratic chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, told the gathering. “And I believe there is not in place yet an adequate policy or plan to deal with it.”
Inshallah! If Allah didn’t want them dead, the bullets wouldn’t hurt them.
It shows a great lack of faith for the Ummah to be upset by this, and Allah ta’Allah knows best-—pigs**t be upon him.
