FROM A LOVING ZIONIST... Open letter to the Syrian opposition https://now.mmedia.me/lb/en/commentaryanalysis/open-letter-to-the-syrian-opposition-from-an-american-supporter
The world is astonished by your sacrifices, your courage and your
strength in your struggle against Assad. But the regime in Damascus that
is now at work slaughtering your loved ones has employed the same means
against your neighbors and others for 40 years. You overcame your fears
of Assad’s depredations when they came for you, but when it was others
that the regime targeted for death, you said nothing. Or did you approve
of it?The regime waged acts of terror for 40 years against every country on
your borders – Jordan, Turkey, Lebanon, Iraq, Palestine, Israel – other
regional states, and us, against our family and friends. During the
Iraq war, Assad turned your capital’s airport into a transit hub for
foreign militants who sought to kill American troops fighting against
extremists – Sunni and Shiite – so that Iraqis might have a better life.I know what you said when Hezbollah dragged Lebanon to war in the
summer of 2006, costing your neighbor billions of dollars worth of
damage, as well as thousands of lives. I was in Damascus the second week
of the war and watched you celebrate Hezbollah’s war against the
Zionists, and Assad’s supporting role, too. If they were fighting the
Jews, you believed, they were in the right. You were played for fools.
For 40 years the regime sold you on the notion that the great enemy was
the Zionist entity, which permitted the Assads to rule and kept the
Syrian state unified. But the reason you cannot live together now in
peace, the reason Syria is at war, is because you were held together by
hatred of someone else, Israel, the Jews.Have you not noticed yet that it all hangs on the same thread? The
hateful language the regime used about Israelis, Jews, is the same
extermination-ist rhetoric driving their war against Sunnis, against
you. You, says Assad, are “foreign terrorists.” The Jews, said the
regime, are a colonialist export, foreign to the region. They must be
destroyed, driven into the sea, exterminated – the same plans he now has
in store for you. Assad’s war against you shows that the Arab war
against Israel is simply another aspect of a regional dynamic – the
inability to accept and live with the other, whether they are Sunnis,
Alawites, Shiite, Druze, Christians, Jews, or for that matter Americans.
[[[[[[[We need an account from you, especially those of us, like me, who
support your cause.]]]]]]]] If we hesitate to say we are your friends, it is
because we do not know who you are, where you are going, or where you
have been for the last 40 years, when the regime that now hunts you like
animals was killing all the rest of us.
