Egypt and Turkey Soften Positions on Syria, Benefiting Assad

editor 8 December 2016

By Anne Barnard.. BEIRUT, Lebanon — The Syrian government, flush with pivotal battlefield gains and bolstered by support from Iran and Russia, is finding itself the beneficiary of an evolving regional realignment spurred by the war in SyriaEgypt and Turkey, countries that were once vocal opponents of Syria’s president, Bashar al-Assad, have, to varying degrees, softened their positions. Egypt, the region’s most populous Sunni country and wary of Iran’s Shiite theocracy, has made its tacit, increasing support of the Syrian government public for the first time. And Turkey, a Sunni regional power, is reshaping the Syrian battlefield by edging closer to Russia and dampening its longtime support for rebels fighting Mr. Assad.

The “Other” Palestinians

editor 3 September 2016

By Khaled Abu Toameh.. Nearly 3,500 Palestinians have been killed in Syria since 2011. But because these Palestinians were killed by Arabs, and not Israelis, this fact is not news in the mainstream media or of interest to “human rights” forums. How many Western journalists have cared to inquire about the thirsty Palestinians of Yarmouk refugee camp [Photo top right], in Syria? Does anyone know that this camp has been without water supply for more than 720 days, and without electricity for the past three years? In June 2002, 112,000 Palestinians lived in Yarmouk. By the end of 2014, the population was down to less than 20,000. (more…)

Today (August 24, 2016) Major Prophecy Was Fulfilled.

editor 31 August 2016

editor 15 June 2016

By The Associated Press.. GENEVA — Wars in Iraq, Syria and Yemen have killed hundreds of thousands of people.
