TO THE WORLD PUBLIC OPINION
The Uprising in Syria which started on March 2011 continues constantly. The regime of Assad tries all means to stop and crash this uprising. Thus, the country had turned into the ruins and hundreds of thousands families fled their country. While the rebels fighting against fascist practices of the regime, on the other hand some marginal groups and gangs belonging to the regime terrorise people and civilians. With these terror acts all Syrian people are affected as well as Syriac people and their religious institutions. Until today hundreds of Syriac-Greek-Maronites had been killed because of their Christian belief. Hundreds of Syriacs had been kidnapped for high amounts of ransom and when the ransom is not provided the victims are killed with barbaric ways. Business establishments and domiciles had been priority for the attacks and the gangs.
POUR L’OPINION PUBLIC MONDIALE
Le soulèvement qui a commencé en Mars 2011 en Syrie continue sans cesse. Le régime d’Assad utilise tous les moyens pour cesser le soulèvement. Par conséquent, le pays est en ruines et des milliers de familles ont du quitter leur pays. Pendant que les rebelles luttent contre les pratiques fascistes du régime, d’autres groupes marginales et les gangs liés au régime terrorise la population. Par conséquent, tous les Syriens sont affectés ainsi le peuple Syriaque et ses institutions religieuses. Jusqu’à aujourd’hui, des centaines de Syriaque- Grecque-Maronites ont été tué à cause de leur identité Chrétienne. Des centaines de Syriaques ont été kidnappé pour des rançons et des sommes très élevé et faute de provision de rançon les ravisseurs tuent leur victimes. Les établissements commerciaux et les domiciles sont prioritaires pour les gangs.
State spares 1 million lira budget for Mor Gabriel Monastery
Midyat Governor’s Office has allocated a budget of 1 million Turkish Liras for the restoration of the road leading to the Syriacs’ Mor Gabriel Monastery, a move viewed by the Syriac community as contradictory as the monastery was previously labeled an “occupier” and its lands were transferred to the Treasury.

The Unbearable Lightness of Syria Policy
Supporting Assad’s non-jihadist enemies may be our least bad option.
But deciding on something is what presidents get paid the big bucks to do. Obama is right to find the available options unappealing, but the problem remains. Declining to choose is no solution; it simply leaves it to others including those most hostile to America to call the shots.
