Obama and global intifada
By Prof. Mazin Qumsiyeh


Before we talk about democracy in Syria, we must respect the fact that
the vast majority of people on earth insist that Western governments
respect their own citizens’ will instead of trying to smother them or
shape them with propaganda or bypass them to serve the Israel lobby.
Before we talk about democracy in Syria, we must end apartheid in
Israel, and end the repressive regimes supported by the US especially
those in the oil producing Arab countries.  Perhaps this is the reason
gulf states are pouring billions to fund murderers in the so called
“Syrian rebels” (most of them turn out to be mercenaries).  It is the
same reason that Netanyahu and Obama are both very nervous.  When the
US/Israel program of liquidating the Palestinian cause and destroying
Syria fails (and it will), all bets are off.  People stand up to
tyranny and stand up for human rights and that is why governments (US,
Israeli, Saudi Arabia, Turkey etc) are starting to panic.  They do
have good reason to worry because people power is coming and each of
us must be part of it.  We ask you to join the global intifada which
will liberate oppressors and oppressed alike and create a better world
for all.
