The Syrian Grinch!

Assad – the Grinch who stole our Christmas in Syria, not to mention our life and our freedom continues, through his minions, to pound the resilient neighborhoods, suburbs and towns of Syria. But here is the Miracle: the people are not giving up. They bury their dead, then, they take back to the streets to keep telling him to leave, because freedom is worth any price, because it’s the birth of freedom that we are indeed witnessing all over the country.

Sunday 25, 2011

Today’s death toll: 10, including 3 children. The Breakdown: 6 in Homs City, 3 children in Qraya (Qouriyeh) in Deir Ezzor Province, and 1 in Nawa in Deraa/Hauran Province. 

As the siege of Homs City continues, Syrian protesters and opposition groups call on Arab League observers to go to Homs, and the Pope calls for ending the violence in Syria.

Will Asma al-Assad take a stand or stand by her man? Comment: Just think of her as Lady Macbeth and stop asking these dumb questions!
