  1. Robin,

    The arab world is falling apart and the leader you put up with for so long because he only killed Jews (through Hezbollah), is now killing your own helpless people. Tables are turned. I hate to tell you I told you so, but I told you so.

    So now your in a quandry because you want to resist Israel and Assad at the same time? Boy, you ARE an idealist!

    Better hurry up habibi, 9 months isn’t a long time!

    • dont know what you mean by nine months. i don’t think assad ever really resisted israel, but hizbullah did, and i supported it. i still would. there’s a difference, you see, between resisting occupation and apartheid and siding with a tyrant against a revolutionary people. i continue to oppose arab dictatorships and i continue to oppose zionist occupation and apartheid. no contradiction there.
