The deadly racism of the ‘anti-racist’ liberal imperialist - article by Neil Clark

When it comes to hypocrisy, the pro-war Western ‘liberal’ is in a class of his own. While professing opposition to racism, the pro-war liberal is cheerleader for the most dangerous and deadly form of racism in the world today - contemporary US/Western imperialism. Article by Neil Clark, first published at https://www.rt.com/op-edge/362533-racism-war-west-imperialist/

A racism that is scarcely reported, but which has laid waste to entire countries and killed millions - and which now threatens to drag us into potentially catastrophic military confrontation with Russia.

Palestinian statement supports Syrian Army and condemns foreign intervention and fighters - see inside

"We do not pretend to tell Syrians what is right for Syria, just as Syria has respected the Palestinian right to liberate Palestine since the time of the Nakba. However, we declare that the enemies of Syria are the enemies of Palestine, and those who bear arms against the Syrian people and the Syrian army – regardless of their names and affiliations – are mere pawns that serve Israel and its project to divide and control the Arab region. The people who abduct, murder and slaughter in Syria are the enemies of the Arab nation, just like Israel, with which they share goals and criminal nature."

Candobetter.net Editor, Sheila Newman: The statement published in full in this article (which the reader may wish to sign) is the result of an international effort by many individuals to try to help stop the destruction of Syria and the creation of more refugees and stateless persons. It supports the Syrian government and expresses solidarity with the Syrian people. It identifies imperialist forces, including Israel, as trying to divide and reconquer the Arab nations. My understanding is that this statement arose in part out of the fact that Syria has resettled many Palestinians where other states refused, but that political opportunism has caused some Palestinian factions to undermine Syria. I am running this statement because it is anti-war and helps to define the position of Syria in contrast to the deforming lens that Australian and other European Press and governments apply continually. I do not support any anti-Jewish sentiment, but I acknowledge Israel's role in this problem, along with the roles of United States, NATO and Australia. Peace.

Friends of Syria or Friends of the Imperialist New World Order?

by Stephen Gowans. Originally published on Global Research on 1 November 2013 as Friends of Syria or Friends of Imperialism?. This article includes main points.
"Friends of Syria" would deny Syrians the right to choose this man to be their President.

The Friends of Syria—an 11 country coalition ranged against the Syrian government—favors what it calls a "democratic" transition in Damascus. There are multiple problems with this.

The coalition says that the current president, Bashar al-Assad, must have "no role in Syria." How odd that an ostensibly democracy-promoting coalition should dictate to Syrians who it is who can't be president of their country, rather than democratically leaving the question up to Syrians themselves.
