The End of the Murderous Assad Regime May Be Near–
A top general in Syria defected on Friday and released video urging the army to quit killing freedom protesters and join the Free Syrian Army.

Arutz Sheva reported:

A Syrian Major-General has deserted Assad’s army along with a group of other officers and joined the rebels.

In an Arabic video clip posted on Youtube on July 29, 2011, the officer, Major-General Riad El As’ad is seen in the company of other officers, announcing the establishment of the “Free Syrian Army whose main goal will be to fight the army of oppression headed by President Bashar Assad”.

As’ad accused the Assad regime of crimes against the Syrian people and called on the officers and soldiers in the Syrian army not to aim their weapons at the people. He further called on them to join the Free Syrian Army.

The major-general warned that the Free Army will eliminate any soldier who acts to harm his own people. The present army commanders do not represent the army, he continued, they are acting for the criminal gang that controls the media and prevents the people from obtaining truthful information on what is happening.

After years of killing, tyranny, and oppression, the kingdom of silence is silent no more.

And, where has our president been? Silent.

    I hope this Syrian Revolution doesn’t end like Egypt’s. Rebel’s strong enough to overthrow the Government but too weak to stop the Sharia Law radicals waiting to fill the void.

    “The End of the Murderous Assad Regime May Be Near–”

    Be careful what you wish for, the devil you know…..

    If Assad goes, the Alawites and the Christians who kept him in power will cop it like they never copped it before.

    This Assad putz was no worse or better than Gaddafi or Saddam Hussein, but what comes after will not be better for us, trust me on that.


    odumbo will not like that…unless his mooslime brotherhood takes over then the kenyan fraud may have another potential country to rule when he is kicked out of the USA

    There is no reason to back or support any government that would turn its guns on unarmed peaceful protesting citizens. Syria is already allied with the suicidal and extreme Iranian government and has already bullied Lebanon into submission and made it a battleground. How could change be worse?

    Citing Malcom X wasn’t cool. Nor was inciting islam.

    But whatever. You can only expect so much out of that region.

    Will the American People be outraged when they learn that they are raising their debt to pay for more mussis who want to do them harm?
    Remember the USA pays a bit of money to the UN and the IMF?

    I don’t see a General who is not afraid or hear what is being reported by the propagandist. This man if you look at the video looks to be a captive who is reading a speech written by someone else look at how he looks for approval? No this is not what the jihadist would have you believe. This looks more like a soon to be mussi snuff film. To say that sunni and shia should join together against the ? Of course this man loves his country and his life. Watch it again then look at the faces and you will see fear in those who are being forced? He also says this is Dar hal harm [the land of mussi]. If you don’t know what this means ask #3 which will not be good for the Christians or any woman who likes her hair blown in the wind or pretty little sandals with bows on the toes.

    God save Syria! The western media have ignored the greatest fight for freedom—ever in the Middle East. The entire world needs to get behind the people of a country that have suffered too long under the weight of dictatorial oppression.

    We need to know much more about their intentions. Are they forming this resistance in order to implement Islamic law?

    And the most important question is are they going to make peace with Israel?

    All Muzzies are informed by the koran and the hadith.

    Regardless of which of the 4 schools of Islamic jurisprudence you may choose, EACH one of them regards the infidel, who is ANYONE who is not Muslim, as an enemy, with particularly hatred leveled at the Jews.
