Back To School!

Students across Syrian had their first day of school today, but it’s the entire country that needs to go back to school: the protesters to learn more of the basics of civil disobedience and acquire certain new tactical skills, the traditional opposition to relearn the dos and don’ts of political action, the silent majority to learn more about the true price of silence, the Assad loyalists to learn the rule of civility before it is too late, and the Assads themselves to learn the basic rules and etiquettes of life behind bars without eligibility for parole.

Sunday September 18, 2011

11 protesters were killed by Assad security officers, including a female high-school student in Homs City and a male child in Sanamein in Deraa/Hauran Province --- Syrian opposition members declare the establishment of a secular democratic coalition in Paris, and call for international protection for peaceful protesters --- The Jordanian Newspaper, Al-Arab Al-Youm (Arabs Today), reports in its Sunday edition that the Syrian Central Bank has conducted a number of transfers in Jordan meant to help it evade future sanctions, including changing a $400 million deposit in a major bank into Saudi Rial while keeping it in the same, bank, and withdrawing $30 million from a different bank and transporting the funds in cash to Syria.
