On Twitter today, there were not the massacres of nowadays in Syria which were evoked, but those committed by Bachar Al Assad’s father, Hafiz.The goal was evident: to show that Syrians live under an hereditary dictatorship, and that Bachar crimes are in the path of his father’s ones.
Recalling Hama, in 1982, a town absolutely exterminated by Hafiz, because of a rebellion under the direction of the Muslim Brotherhoods, they put in evidence that Bachar, murdering a whole city, acts like his father.The massacre of Hama is not known by everyone in the West; it is by specialists of the Middle-East.
In the aim to make the population live in silence and terror, Hafiz made an example in the repression of this revolt: corpses were , as it is a tradition in Arab dictatorships, put in front of the doors, so that families find them, but with marks of torture, particularly in the eyes and the mouth.
Don’t see , don’t speak: this was the awful message given to the population.
Hafiz erased a whole city : it was the more cruel gesture of an Arab dictator.He preceded those of 1988 in Iran.
In 1982, Syria was part of the War of Lebanon; on Twitter, today, an activist who wanted to show the continuity between the 80th and now uploaded a video, an archive of the 80th, where the Hezbollah explains that , with Iran, it will invade both Lebanon and Syria.
The goal was to establish an Islamic Republic in Iran: we’ve seen the results…
Today, Iranian opponents joined Syrian Revolutionaries, of course.Iran is with Russia and Bachar Al Assad , and the Hezbollah is playing the role of the Islamism.
As for the victims , between 2011 and 2017, they are killed by chemicals.The number is so growing that now the Syrian Network for Human Rights publish a monthly report, not an annual one: in January,in only one month, more than 781 children were killed., most by chemicals.
Towns after towns, Bachar makes now what made his father in 1982: first, Homs, then Deraa, Aleppo, and now Wadi Barada.
But Revolutionaries are organized : they have proofs of Bachar Al Assad’s massacres.They want a commission on War Crimes to be opened ; it they are recognized, they have proofs of a genocide.
