West aims to isolate, quarantine Syria, not liberate it

The aim of the international community now is not to liberate Syria but to isolate it and quarantine the contagion, according to the Guardian’s Simon Tisdall.

“The fact that the US and Britain have looked on as a second UN peace mission by Lakhdar Brahimi runs into the sand (the first, led by Kofi Annan, collapsed last year), the fact that no substantive pressure has been put on Russia’s Vladimir Putin to drop his Syrian diplomatic protection racket, the fact that military intervention is publicly and noisily ruled out and the fact that no concerted international humanitarian relief effort has been mounted to assist Syrian refugees in Turkey, Lebanon and Jordan all point to one conclusion: that the west is not serious about enforcing Assad’s demise. It is a message that Assad has undoubtedly heard.”

Tisdall added in his article ” Why Assad may yet claim victory” :

“Israel’s decision to build border defences across the Golan and Turkey’s deployment of Patriot missiles along its border symbolise this shifting reality. The aim now is not to liberate Syria but to isolate it and quarantine it and to contain the contagion.

It is time the likes of ( President Barack ) Obama and ( Prime Minister ) William Hague admitted this reality and started dealing with what is, rather than what might have been, Tisdall concluded.

    Russia , china, Iran , America, and its allies have made their statements by their actions and are now evidently against the rebels. This is what will make this a very special and miraculous victory for the rebels. inshallah . Having Patience now brothers ans sisters is for the long term benefit of the umma and your souls , this revolution needed to happen. I urge all our brothers and sisters in islam to support the uprisings against the tyrants, for your own sakes, as Allahs plan will not fail. The enemies of Islam have made their intentions clear.

      The biggest enemies of Islam are Muslims themselves. Make no mistake of that. Every war orchestrated in the middle east has always had Muslims killing Muslims.

        It wasnot long ago that you said sunnis denounce the prophets family. I did not answer you as it was not worthy of a reply. These lies lead to conflicts and emotional responses. Harsh words can start wars. We always send the blessings to the prophets family at least 10times a day in our regular prayers. , While I regularly hear shia curse the prophets companions about ten times a day. The same companions that funded the spread of islam during and after the prophets life,  The prophet cherished their support. if you curse them , you curse the prophet,  i am not sure what religion you are or if you pray,  but we seem to have one common enemy . The Zionists terrorist state.” Assad family gave the golan heights to this enemy and never fired one shot in retaliation. They kill our brothers and sisters daily while Assad ignores them for decades. it is time for change.  Divided we will never win. i  dont  support any arab dictators, and i do support freedom of expression if it doesnt promote hatred between people. Asshead started this war by killing  unarmed protestors. How can you support this. Are going to be part of the problem or part of the solution.

          If I recall I said that most Sunni’s denounce the prophets family. However if I said all of them I apologise. As for it being a lie, you need to understand that this is information that I have extracted from various Sunni Muslims through various debates. It is true, Sunni’s do send their blessings to the prophets family (PBUH) at least 10 times a day in their regular prayers, however which family are they talking about. I have read a secret Sunni book where it says, Omar ibn al-Khattab is God, and it puts Abu Bakar, Osman and Aisha ahead of the Prophet and his family (PBUH). It also curses Banu Hashem. Who was Banu Hashem, the decedents of the Prophet (PBUH). There has been wrong done from both Sunni and Shiites in terms of cursing one another. As for what religion I am, I am nor Sunni or Shiite. I am Muslim with one belief. There is only one God and Muhammad is his messenger. And the Koran is the true holy book of man kind.

        The biggest enemies of Islam is not Muslims FME, its the lack of education. Look around, Africa and the ME have the most illiterate masses on earth, if there isn’t a dictator ruling a country, then there is war. Simple as that!

        • FreetheME

          I agree with you to a point. Education is a big contributing factor. However these dictators you are speaking of all speak in the name of Islam. And Muslim people in general because of a particular leader, would kill his or hers father or mother.
