This video is spreading throughout Facebook like fire specially in the Conservative Salafist page and it is receiving a lot of “Likes”
When I saw that video allegedly shot in El Rastan , Homs earlier I freaked out because honestly I feel that we are re-watching Afghanistan two especially with all the sectarian talk and Salafist enthusiasm aside of the American and Gulf support.
This video shot allegedly in Rastan, Homs showing a commander of FSA unit called Gassar addressing the public and claiming that there are allegedly Egyptian and Saudi Mujahedeen who joined the Free Syrian army !! Of course we do not see any Egyptians or Saudis. Side note : it seems that the area where they shot the video was liberated from El Assad regime completely.
Of course what is more disturbing than the claim of that defected army officer is how the people in that area are swearing to sacrifice him with blood and soul !!! That culture is still there !!
In past months you would find some silly rumors on twitter and Salafist FB pages that over 1000 Saudi fighter had crossed the borders and are going to liberate Syria.
Already I will not buy for one minute that the Freedom fighters of Libya “who are fighting each other now” are going to fight and win El Assad army because simply El Assad army is not Qaddafi militias nor Syria is Libya if we are going to speak about fundamental military facts even I who did no study in military academies !!!
These rumors are dangerous because El Assad regime will use them in order to prove that there are foreign parties involved in the revolution. “Ask us about foreign agents !!??”
On the other hand 12 Egyptians were arrested in Syria and the Egyptian charge d’ affairs is currently working to deport them safely to Cairo. These Egyptians were reportedly entered Syria illegally to find work according to the Egyptian ministry of foreign affairs report.
Endless to say after the horrible massacre of Karm El Zaitoun the sectarian hate between the Sunni and Alawis hit the ceiling and El Assad got what he wants. There can be sectarian cleansing literally in Syria if the wise and true patriot in this country take the lead and save this multi-sects nation. “I still have faith but from my talks with Syrians I fear that there will be a sectarian cleansing in this nation targeting Alawis than Shiites sooner or later because of the massacres in the Sunni populated areas”
Today Mouard Mowafi has headed to Saudi Arabia in an urgent visit to discuss Syria’s updates meanwhile US general Ronald Burgess , the Defense Intelligence Agency director arrived on Tuesday to Cairo and had talks with our generals. Some say that it has to do with Egyptian American relations but I will dare and say that it has to do with Egyptian American Syrian relations.
It is like Libya Déjà vu but in much more complicated context.
The United states will not intervene along with the NATO and save the Syrians now as some believe because this is the year of the elections and again there is oil in Libya and Israel said it clearly that it fear an Islamist state in Syria and it wants someone peaceful tempted like El Assad and his regime.
