More Arab spring cleaning.
Obama and Hillary Clinton want these people to be running the ‘new’ Syria. In the Arab world, there is no such thing as ‘a good guy.’ It is always a choice between two or more evils.
A video posted on YouTube to the LiveLeaks website appears to show Islamists throwing a man to his death after forcing him from a third-floor window in Syria.
According to the site, the cameraman says, “This is what happens to all traitors who support the police or Shabbiha [Syrian government militia.]” The man, identified as Abu Wael Rashid, screams, “In God’s name, don’t!” as he is forced out of the window.
The video was shot last week at a block of flats in Nabk, 80 kilimetres north of Damascus. Both sides in the Syrian conflict have been condemned by human rights organizations for abuses, including torture
Assad loyalists shown with mustaches half-shaven off in humiliating video
Youtube clip features pro-regime men forced to sing praises of Free Syrian Army.
Times of Israel – A video uploaded to YouTube this week purports to show captured members of Syrian President Bashar Assad’s shabiha militia, with their mustaches half-shaven off, chanting “Allah bless the Free [Syrian] Army.”
The enforced shaving of the ostensible Assad loyalists, a mark of disgrace and humiliation in Arab culture, presumably took place after they were captured by Free Syrian Army forces.
It was not clear under what circumstances the pro-regime men were captured, nor could the authenticity of the video’s contents be confirmed.
The incident would hardly be the first case of retaliatory humiliation by either side in the Syrian conflict. Numerous videos uploaded to YouTube over the 16-month uprising against Assad have purported to show one side or the other mutilating or defiling the bodies of their opponents.
