FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Arab League Monitors are only bringing more deaths to the Syrian people by diverting attention from Assad’s killing machine in the streets of Syria
Another 150 have died while farcical monitors give Assad a free pass by taking up what little bandwidth existed for Syria
PHOENIX (January 6, 2012) – Dr. M. Zuhdi Jasser, a devout Muslim and the co-founder of the SaveSyria Now! issued the following statement regarding the Arab League monitors in Syria:
“Another week has gone by with the west abdicating its leadership role in Syria to a group of hapless monitors from the Arab League. While the media has regaled us almost daily with stories of attacks on these monitors, the real story of the struggle for the freedom of the Syrian people continues with another 150 dead in the streets.
Bashar Al-Assad is playing the free world as fools by standing in front of our media and agreeing to terms with the cabal of tyrants to end the violence, while in reality he continues to crush opposition beneath his boot. The protesters in the street know that settlement is not an option. Stepping out of the streets with Assad in power may as well be a death warrant for them.
The Arab League’s mission is beyond a farce. It is an inhumane travesty of global proportions run by a Sudanese agent of a genocidal regime whose President is wanted for war crimes committed in his own nation. The monitors have been told where to go by Assad’s drivers and used primitive means of documentation if any at all. They are autocrats trying to save face for themselves while their fellow autocrat Bashar Assad is finding himself closer and closer to the end of his tyrannical rule. The so called monitors have only afforded the Assad regime more time and sucked the bandwidth away from legitimate coverage of the atrocities that Bashar Assad has committed on his own people.
Instead of appeasing conferences with the OIC in Washington where America apologizes for OIC hyperbole over so called western islamophobia and tries to restrict free speech, the West must put an end to this farce, by demanding that Assad let UN observers and international media into the country to document his crimes. The United States must push harder on every front for the removal of Assad and step forward as a champion of freedom for the brutalized people of Syria and the free world.”
