Assads Mörderregime „letzte Festung arabischer Würde“

Ein neues Bonmot eines Kaders der sogenannten „Palästinasolidarität“ kam durch den Hackerangriff auf Postfächer des syrischen Regimes zu Tage. Der britische Oberguru von Flotilla und anderen Geschmacklosigkeiten schmierte dem Mörder Assad Honig ums Maul und baute auf seine Unterstützung im Kampf gegen Israel. Was sagen Inge Höger, Norman Paech und Co.? Ach ja, die sehen ja eine internationale Verschwörung gegen Assad am Werk. Wie konnte ich das nur vergessen.

Derweil in Syrien:

Hier Auszüge aus einem Exklusivartikel der Haaretz:
Galloway has for many years carried on close contacts with dictators and extremist elements in the Arab world. In the late 1990s, he was closely linked with Iraqi president Saddam Hussein, the Assad regime in Syria, Hamas in Gaza and the Iranian regime. In July 2011, at a time when Assad was perpetrating massacres of his own people, Galloway was interviewed on Hezbollah’s al-Manar network, where he heaped praises on the Syrian president. „Bashar Assad wants reform and change, to realize the aspirations of his people,“ he said in the interview, which was quoted in the official Syrian news agency Sana. „They are trying to pressure Syria and President Assad because of the good things that he did, such as supporting Palestinian and Lebanese resistance and rejecting to surrender to Israel.“ […]

On August 11, 2010, Galloway wrote to Bashar Assad’s media adviser, Bouthaina Shaaban, who is considered to be one of the closest aides to the Syrian president. In an email message that bore the subject heading „IMPORTANT – private and confidential,“ Galloway asked Shaaban for Syrian help in organizing the aid flotilla to Gaza. „I am writing once again to ask for Syria’s co-operation although I do not doubt it for one moment. Syria is as I have often said is the last castle of Arab dignity,“ Galloway noted. „This convoy sets out simulataneously [sic] on September 18th 2010 from London, from Casablanca and from the Gulf. The London and Gulf columns of vehicles would like to converge on Latakia and sail from there to Al Arish.“ Galloway listed the organizations that would be taking part in the flotilla, including IHH, the Turkish group that organized the flotilla to Gaza in May 2010. „It is intended that the vehicles and passengers should sail to Al Arish on board the Mavi Marmara, which as you know is owned by IHH,“ he wrote. „If His Excellency the President Bashar al Asad and his government can accept this proposal in principle perhaps you could nominate partner organisation(s) and individuals with whom my colleagues could liaise about the practical details?“ […]

Three days later, Shaaban sent an emailed response to Galloway in which she expressed enthusiasm for the idea. „God bless your amazing efforts and I will be honored to be part and parcel of it and to be the catalyst for my country too,“ she wrote. „You will find me happy to put my time and energy to help with this most important cause of the Twenty First Century.“

Galloway responded in another email, in which he wrote, „I knew that I could rely on you and the last Arab country in this historic endeavour. Can I respectfully request that you task officials in Damascus and Latakia to make contact with my comrades in advance of your arrival back to Syria?“
