Syria's Assad 'plans to escape to Russia'– (al Jizz)

Former aide to Syrian president, who defected in September, says he was privy to many of the regime’s secrets.

Al Jazeera is pushing sunni propaganda. Assad is hanging on; and it looks like he’s getting on top of it, despite the western media writing him off.

Turkey is not only home to more than 100,000 Syrian civilian refugees, but also high ranking defectors.

Abdullah al-Omar says he was one of the staff members in the Media Office of Bashar al-Assad, Syria’s president. He was privy to many of the secrets of the adminstration until his defection last September.

In an interview with Al Jazeera’s Anita McNaught in Antakya, southern Turkey, Omar claimed the Assad regime knows it cannot hold onto power and has already made plans to escape to Russia.

Syria accuses U.S., France of arming, funding “terrorists”

Everyone knows that the Assad regime is evil, and therefore the rebel groups must be wonderful, and that al-Moualem must be lying — right? “Syria Accuses US, France of Arming, Funding ‘Terrorists,'” by Michelle Nichols and Louis Charbonneau forReuters, October 7:

Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Moualem told the U.N. General Assembly that outside calls for President Bashar al-Assad to step down were a “blatant interference in the domestic affairs of Syria, and the unity of its people and its sovereignty.”

Earlier on Monday, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon met with Moualem and strongly criticized the Syrian government for killings, rights abuses, aerial and artillery attacks, and expressed frustration that the conflict was worsening.

Speaking on the final day of the annual gathering of the 193-nation assembly, Moualem said that Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, the United States, and France “clearly induce and support terrorism in Syria with money, weapons and foreign fighters.”

“Under the pretext of concepts such as the ‘Responsibility to Protect,’ drums of war are beaten, and sedition and unrest are spreading and damaging the structure of national societies,” Moualem said.

He was referring to a concept about governments’ responsibility to protect civilians that has become increasingly popular in Western diplomatic and academic circles. The concept was used to justify last year’s military intervention in Libya.

“Worst of all is to see permanent members of the Security Council, who launched wars under the pretext of combating terrorism, now support terrorism in my country,” Moualem said….

    What do you think will happen to the minorities that live in Syria at the moment? It will be just like Libya, Tunisia and other enlightened and free liberated countries.

    Lesser of the evil is picked, these leaders may not like the West but the alternative is much worse.
