Syria conflict: Head 'torn off Assad father statue'
BBC ^ | 5 May 2013 | unattributed

Posted on 05/05/2013 1:06:16 PM PDT by SunkenCiv

Amateur footage apparently showing a statue of Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad's father being attacked has been posted online.

The video, which cannot be independently verified, is said to have been filmed on Friday, and shows people cheering as the statue is decapitated.

The head is then removed, and thrown into the crowd.

These Muslims love to gather in big crowds and do stupid things. I notice no women were there, Pretty soon they will be wearing Burka’s and being stoned.

Yeah it’s great, Assad will be gone, the Christians will be killed and we will have another radical Muslim Country to deal with.

Thanks Obama. You POS.

Hafez Assad was quite the terrorist himself for decades.

This thing is going to end badly no matter which way it goes.

Assad will hang on a while yet, but Syria is turning into another Lebanon. All those Syrian Christians who, just like their neighbors, cheered in the streets when the World Trade Centers fell on 9/11, deserve what they’re going to get. The fact is, they’ll go along to get along, just as they did under Assad.

:’)

Probably to protect himself from A) being identified, and B) against whatever helmet-head hair spray the dead dic-tator used.

Time to split up the country. Can a couple of million Alawites hold together a country of 30 million?

I am not sure you are correct, so I will pass with my answer.

Not sure Christians danced in the streets after 911.

Current military situation, Assad's forces in red, the rebels in green (same color as Islam)

That's a bold statement. As always, please back it up with a source.

P.S. my best friend is a Palestinian Christian.

Assuming it ends at all, probably won’t for quite a while. Lebanon was ripped to pieces by the PLO and kept that way ever since by Syria and Iran. Now Iran will be stuck in a quagmire; Russia’s all-in, and will spend the next few years trying to figure out its own endgame, having publicly and angrily backed another loser; the various Arabian states (the rich ones) will continue to back their own factions, and the shooting, kidnapping, bombing, maiming, and killing will go on and on.

Ultimately Syria’s Muzzies are locked in a death struggle with their sworn, lifelong enemies — other Muzzies.

Or, as I’ve said many times, the nice thing about the Muzzie civil war is, everybody wins.

We’ll end up with an influx of Syrian Christian refugees, or perhaps Lebanon will. From what I’ve heard from expatriate Jordanian Christians (yes, even here in little old Grand Rapids — thanks to the many churches, it’s been a refugee-friendly town at least since the Fall of Saigon) has been no place for Christians for over fifty years.

That’s not unlikely, and nice map! One of the ongoing projects of the Muzzie world is to partition as many existing states as they can, in order to achieve an outright majority in the UN General Assembly; for the current one vote, this partitioning would result in three, plus a Druze state (the Druze are also from Islam, but are quite the oddballs). Israel would probably prefer to have a Druze state for a neighbor.

Is there a connection between the city of Hama and Hamas?

The Israeli-born Druze do serve in the IDF.

And yeah, they celebrate Christmas, don't ask me why.

We know a Palestinian “Christian” who was happy about the attacks. He’s a total jerk!
