George Galloway supports US intervention in Iraq and Syria

Galloway being confronted on the issue:

Interview where he made his comments (2:13 – 2:33) :

And here he is welcoming the regime mufti (top religious official) in a visit to Ireland. They might not be able to give visas to refugees, but the Democratic West has no problem giving visas to officials of fascist regimes.

3 airforces blitzkrieging (Regime, Russian and American) one country – all exclusively in areas that rebelled against Assad in 2011

To this guy who first challenged Galloway in a hostile arena when his fascist hypocrisy first appeared, I hope you feel avenged.

Manbij – On Demographic Change policies by YPG/SDF – Statement by Manbij Council of Revolution’s Trustees

In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

The city of Manbij and its countryside are today being subjected to critical junctures in all areas.

On the 17th March 2016 the Democratic Union Party (PYD) had declared from the city of al-Romailan the establishment of the federal partitioning system in the areas that it controls by force in North Syria, the matter which provoked waves of rejection from the revolutionaries and regional and international powers. Yet today, here are the forces of “Qasd” – the SDF (Syrian Democratic Forces) – declaring their occupation of the city of Manbij on the 12th of August 2016 with the help of the forces of the International Coalition and an eerie international silence and clear collusion which resembles a green light to the militias of “Qasd”/SDF, wherein the Assad regime and its allies attempt to conquer the will of the Syrian people in their entire ethnic and religious spectra, and subjugate their determination and pursuit for freedom and the right of common living between all Syrians.

ٍٍSubsequently, and proceeding from our values as Syrian citizens and the values of our revolution with its fundamental parameters and principles from which it was launched, including bringing the downfall of the regime and the preservation of the unity of the land and the people – we in the revolutionary institutions in Manbij and its countryside affirm the following:

1- Calling upon the wise from our sibling Kurds including civilians and politicians as well as our sibling Kurds in the Free Syrian Army, to disown”Qasd’s”/SDF’s declaration of the occupation of Manbij and rejecting this occupation and everything that follows from it from ramifications which aim to target the unity of Syria land and people.

2 – Working on a sustained basis on permanent coordination with the field forces that face “Qasd”/SDF and its occupation of Manbij. The only authority that represents us is the Free Syrian Army.

3 – The Independence Flag is the flag which groups Syrians.

4- We demand all world countries and the International Coalition and the Syrian opposition forces and human rights organisations to bear their moral and humanitarian responsibilities by not targeting civilians under the excuse of destroying ISIS and what accompanies this from a systematic policy of extermination by the gangs of the PYD through expulsion, killing , forced displacement and demographic change in Manbij (especially after its full occupation), has taken place in the villages of Al-Sheyookh and Sarryn, and is currently taking place in the villages of Shash al-Bobanah, Khaled, Al-Qashlah, Al-Sa’adeen, Khorbet-Tweiny, Mahsheyat al-Sheikh and Zamanah, all which serve as clear proof of the systematic nature of this policy.

Based on the above – we the Council of the Revolution’s Trustees in Manbij and its Countryside – civilians and soldiers and families of the martyrs and wounded and detainees, reject completely returning to Manbij whilst under the rule of the “Qasd”/SDF separatist gang, which has violated and usurped our land and plundered our possessions and assailed our honours, unless this gang exits from our land, and it will exit voluntarily or with the force of arms. And we tell our people and families: You will return to your homes dignified and honoured with your heads held high under the banner of our revolution and the leadership of the Free Syrian Army, no matter how long or short the passage of time may be. And war is a protracted debate. If “Qasd” is victorious in a battle it will not win the war, for we represent the broad people and posses the glaring right.

Manbij siege by US-led International Coalition and SDF becoming a humanitarian catastrophe

Statement issued from the Political Committee in the City of Manbij
“No to the killing of civilians in Manbij”

With the continuation of battles between the sides of the conflict (Syrian Democratic Forces and the Daesh organisation) in the city of Manbij, and which started from 31-5-2016, the suffering of the civilian population increases day after day, whereby talking about the essential necessities for the population from food and medicine is no longer enough to balance against the ghost of death that has come to threaten the old and the women and the children who have been besieged and indeed taken by the Daesh organisation as human shields, and that as a consequence of the siege which has been imposed by the [International] Coalition forces cordoning off the city from its four directions. The Syrian Democratic Forces were able to enter to a number of the city’s neighbourhoods, the matter which has transformed the battle to street fighting which has made the civilians easy prey to all forms of death (Coalition planes – Predating snipers on roofs and inside houses – the mines that were planted by the Daesh organisation in the streets and the paths and the public places), and in the midst of this tragic reality most citizens have now become unable to find a safe haven that prevents from them [i.e. shields them from] the shells and missiles of death which they don’t know at which moment can fall above their heads, to add to that the city has [already] witnessed many cases where no one was able to recover and remove the bodies of the dead from the streets due to the fear of being abruptly killed.

The Political Committee in Manbij has already previously implored – and from the start of fighting – all sides and at their head the United States of America, and the rest of the Coalition countries, and affirmed to everyone that the strategy that has been taken up in fighting Daesh would have disastrous results on the civilian population, and at the time that the committee has affirmed its welcome in fighting Daesh and expelling it from the city except that it has pointed out repeatedly that the Coalition’s insistence on fighting in this way gives the world the impression that what approaches 200,000 individual inhabitants who are civilians are all from the Daesh organisation, and it is worth mentioning in this context that this is not the only time that heavily populated cities are liberated from the authorities of the Assad regime or Daesh but [this happens] without these disasters which do not indicate anything other than not caring about the lives of civilians and a clear indifference towards the lives of Syrians.

The political committee in the city of Manbij whilst expressing more of its sadness and concern regarding the cases of death which are reaping the civilian innocents, it at the same time calls vigorously on the international community in its entirety, and the coalition countries especially, affirming to them the duty of the entire international community to shoulder its moral and humanitarian responsibilities regarding a war imposed on isolated civilians [who are] powerless and defenceless, and almost have nothing in terms of life necessities, as well as them having no option which can enable them to eschew the death which is threatening their life. Noting that the insistence of the coalition states to ignore the humanitarian situation in the city of Manbij cannot be explained except as disregard for the totality of human values which have been guaranteed by all the canons and laws to preserve the sanctity of blood and protection of the human entity.

يان صادر عن الهيئة السياسية في مدينة منبج
(لا لقتل المدنيين في منبج)

مع استمرار المعارك بين طرفي النزاع ( قوات سورية الديمقراطية وتنظيم داعش)في مدينة منبج، والتي بدأت منذ 31 – 5 – 2016 ،تزداد معاناة السكان المدنيين يوما بعد يوم، إذ لم يعد الحديث عن الاحتياجات الضرورية للسكان من غذاء ودواء كافياً في موازاة شبح الموت الذي بات يهدد الشيوخ والنساء والأطفال الذين حوصروا بل اتخذهم تنظيم داعش دروعاً بشرياً وذلك نتيجة للحصار الذي فرضته قوات التحالف وطوّقت المدينة من جهاتها الأربع. لقد تمكّنت قوات سورية الديمقراطية من الدخول إلى عدد من أحياء المدينة، الأمر الذي حوّل المعركة إلى قتال شوارع مما جعل المدنيين عرضة سهلة لكافة أشكال الموت( طائرات التحالف – قناصات المتربصين على الأسطحة وداخل البيوت – الألغام التي زرعها تنظيم داعش في الشوارع والطرقات والاماكن العامة)،وفي ظل هذا الواقع المأسوي بات معظم المواطنين لا يجدون مأوى آمناً يقيهم قذائف الموت الذي لا يعرفون أية لحظة يمكن أن يحلّ فوق رؤوسهم،إضافة إلى أن المدينة شهدت حالات عديدة لم يتمكن فيها أحد من انتشال جثث الموتى من الشوارع بسبب الخوف من القتل المباغت. لقد سبق وناشدت الهيئة السياسية في منبج – ومنذ بدء القتال – كافة الأطراف وعلى رأسها الولايات المتحدة الأمريكية وباقي دول التحالف، وأكدت للجميع بأن الاستراتيجية التي تم اعتمادها في قتال داعش سوف تكون لها نتائج كارثية على السكان المدنيين،وفي الوقت الذي أكدت فيه الهيئة بترحيبها بقتال تنظيم داعش وطرده من المدينة إلا أنها نوّهت مراراً على أن إصرار قوات التحالف على القتال بهذه الطريقة يوحي للعالم بأن ما يقارب ( 200000 ) نسمة من المدنيين وكأنهم جميعا من تنظيم داعش،ومن الجدير ذكره في هذا السياق أنه ليست هذه هي المرة الوحيدة التي تتحرر فيها مدنٌ آهلة بالسكان من سلطات نظام الأسد أو داعش لكن بدون هذه الكوارث التي لا تدل سوى على عدم اكتراث بحياة المدنيين ولامبالاة واضحة تجاه حياة السوريين. إن الهيئة السياسية في مدينة منبج إذ تبدي مزيد حزنها وقلقها حيال حالات الموت التي تحصد المدنيين الأبرياء، فإنها في الوقت ذاته تطالب بشدّة المجتمع الدولي كافة ، ودول التحالف على وجه الخصوص، مؤكّدة على وجوب تحمّل المجتمع الدولي كافة مسؤولياته الأخلاقية والإنسانية حيال حرب مفروضة على مدنيين عُزّل لا حول لهم ولا قوة، وقد باتوا لا يملكون من مقوّمات الحياة شيئاً، فضلاً عن عدم امتلاكهم لأي خيار يمكّنهم من تحاشي الموت الذي يهدد حياتهم. علماً أن إصرار دول التحالف على تجاهل الحالة الإنسانية في مدينة منبج لا يمكن تفسيره إلا كونه تجاهلاً لمجمل القيم الإنسانية التي كفلتها كل الشرائع والقوانين للحفاظ على حرمة استباحة الدم وحماية الكائن البشري.

SDF and US-led Coalition siege tightens on Manbij – Humanitarian disaster warned

[Committee Logo]
Syrian Arab Republic
The General Political Committee for the City of Manbij and its Countryside

Statement issued from the Political Committee in the City of Manbij and its Countryside

“Save the rest from the siege”

Since late May 2016 the city of Manbij has been subject to a hateful siege as a result of the occurring confrontation between the Democratic Union Party PYD represented in its military wing “People’s Protection Units” backed by the forces of the International Coalition, and the “Daesh” organisation which occupies the city of Manbij since the beginning of the year of 2014, whereby the People’s Protection Units is besieging the city from its four directions [sides], whilst the Daesh organisation is not allowing civilians to leave the city, the matter which has increased in the suffering of the civilian population whose numbers reach approximately 250,000 individuals, as well as the prevailing atmosphere of fear of death which is threatening them from everywhere as a result of the mines and [planted] bombs and the snipers and the plane shells [all of] which reach them from every direction, and so their suffering becomes multiplied in light of the loss of most of the causes of life from the city, whereby to add to the severe scarcity of water and electricity most of the other life staples are almost completely absent such as baby milk and medicine and other nutritional supplies and vegetables and combustibles [fuels], the matter that forewarns of a humanitarian disaster which is on the verge of ravaging the lives of thousands of citizens.

As we also direct [a call] to all the Human Rights and Humanitarian bodies and organisations and scream to every live conscience in the world to contribute to the lifting of the death and the suffering from this city which has been afflicted by an assembled siege [put together] whose scope is the increase of suffering day after day.

The Political Committee in the city of Manbij and its countryside directs [a call] to all the governmental agencies in the international community and in particular the governments participating in the Coalition forces and asserts to them that your interests which you seek to achieve in this war has victims and these are the deaths of defenceless civilian citizens and not terrorists, and at the time which you proclaim fighting the terrorism of Daesh you are in this method and with these followed [adopted] mechanisms only participating in terrorism towards the rights of the citizens which is not any less insulting to human dignity than the terrorism of Daesh.

We are calling everyone to immediate action and to work for the entry of the necessary substances for citizens such as food and medicine and fuel, as we also call call upon everyone to take every form of pressure on the combating sides to neutralise [safeguard] the civilians from the ghost of death which they face.

John Kerry blames the Syrian rebellion for Assad’s airstrikes

2 months ago John Kerry came out with his ‘admissions’ of long established on the ground US policy in Syria, a gluttony of statements clarifying the 4-year long so-called “muddled” US position (I never believed it has been) sending a signal that the US was essentially declaring “fun’s over, time to wrap up”. Saying that the regime was not the target of “regime-change” (this reality was well-known of course long before Kerry’s statements for those who were not Assad apologists and who closely followed the Syrian conflict, as US actions on the ground spoke for themselves), rebels should fight alongside the fascist colonial Syrian Army against ISIS, declaring that all sides had “bad guys” and there were “good guys” on the Syrian regime’s side as well, and ‘coincidentally’ “revealing for the first time” that he had obtained a signature from (the dove) Assad in 2010 promising normalisation of ties with Israel before all the trouble broke out.

In a recent Syria donors conference held in London, Kerry continued to reveal his true colours:

“US Secretary of State John Kerry told Syrian aid workers, hours after the Geneva peace talks fell apart, that the country should expect another three months of bombing that would “decimate” the opposition.

During a conversation on the sidelines of this week’s Syria donor conference in London, sources say Kerry blamed the Syrian opposition for leaving the talks and paving the way for a joint offensive by the Syrian government and Russia on Aleppo.

“‘He said, ‘Don’t blame me – go and blame your opposition,’” one of the aid workers, who asked to remain anonymous to protect her organisation, told Middle East Eye.

 

The report goes on to state

“A third MEE source who claims to have served as a liaison between the Syrian and American governments over the past six months said Kerry had passed the message on to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in October that the US did not want him to be removed.

Instead, the source claims, Kerry insisted that Assad should stop using barrel bombs, which terrify civilian populations.

The source claimed that Kerry said if Assad stopped the barrel bombs, Kerry could “sell the story” to the public, the source said.”

[Note: the report went on to make mention of the well-known US “Train and Equip” programme /Division 30 “fiasco”. So much has been written on this and yet such a simple fact is so shockingly absent from all reporting about the programme, including by outlets you’d expect better from like Al-Jazeera: the programme stipulated that recruits sign a declaration not to fight Assad and only to fight ISIS – which was why so few recruits joined it, not because of the ridiculous, orientalist and frankly racist notion that all Syrians who don’t represent Assad’s core fighting minorities are “Islamic extremists” (though Tony Blair is the latest to add his voice to the chorus of those who’d have you think so, in a study perhaps as arbitrary and ridiculous (if not more) than his WMD dossier – in which he notably echoed George Galloway in calling the Assad regime a “castle” standing out against dangerous Jihadis, in more and more evidence of the Red-Brown (Left-Right) Western Assadist agreement on Syria – Blair should probably apply for membership of Stop the War Coalition now)]

13/12/2015: Massacre in Douma دوما تباد

14/12/2015..

After Russia’s jets missiled the rebel area repeatedly, Assad’s jets followed it up to attack the Syrian Civil Defence rescuers (“double-tap” bombing).

“Stories beyond expression”

According to Syrian Network (not Observatory) for Human Rights, monitoring group on the ground. Note that Syrian Armed opposition groups are ranked higher than Russians, ISIS, unidentified, Kurds, and Nusra (which makes sense due to their size and duration of fighting) so please lets not mention bias. For more statistics over types of casualties, see https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.937032056388808.1073741840.607756062649744&type=3

According to the Violations Documentation Centre – who only draw up statistics from casualties with verified names (hence the much lower death toll). The founder of the VDC as well as three other of its activists (the “Douma 4“: Razan Zaitouneh, Samira Khalil, Wael Hamadeh, and Nazem Hammadi) were kidnapped allegedly by a rebel faction, not the regime – so again, lets not have allegations of “pro-rebel” bias.

 

The Syrian genocide continues whilst Assad is propped up as a “transitional” leader, whilst the world diplomats state that “he must stay“, whilst US continues its tap-drip weapons embargo policy of handicapping the Syrian resistance, and the Arab states’ cowardly obligement.
