clipped from article:Ignoring the sound of gunfire encapsulates the world's reaction to the atrocities in Syria to date. As so often, leaders who have said "never again" after the last genocide do nothing to prevent the next. But perhaps their indifference won't last. The ferocity of the regime's violence has pushed the Syrian National Council, an umbrella group for much of the opposition, from calling for civil disobedience and passive resistance to begging for outside help. As Ammar Abdulhamid, a Syrian dissident, put it to me: "In the fight of tanks against bare chests, the odds are not exactly even and bravery can only get you so far." The Syrian incarnation of the "Arab Street" we used to hear so much about now wants Nato planes in the skies.

Turkey has gone from being Assad's ally to his enemy and is talking of regime-change. The French foreign minister has called for Nato troops to protect relief workers. Syrian opposition leaders are discreetly trying to persuade sympathisers in the Obama administration to support the revolution.

The motives of foreign powers are not entirely humanitarian. The reason why is best explained by Michael Weiss, a remarkable man who is worth a column in himself. He is a combative and unstoppably talkative New York intellectual with a loathing for totalitarians and their apologists in whatever form they come. Somehow, he ended up in the London offices of the Henry Jackson Society. The pro-democracy thinktank does much serious work but even its best friends would say that it is not always at the forefront of global political debate.

From this backwater, Weiss compiled a report (http://www.henryjacksonsociety.org/content.asp?pageid=35) on how American, British and French air power might combine with Turkish ground forces to create a safe haven in northern Syria, where mutinous troops from the Syrian army could build a fighting force. Nato officials have studied it, while Burhan Ghalioun, chairman of the Syrian National Council, described the report as a "crucial resource for understanding how a humanitarian intervention in Syria can still be carried out responsibly". When I asked why a weary world should bother to help the Syrians, Weiss quoted from Czeslaw Milosz's "Child of Europe", one of the greatest satires of the fascist and communist era. The supporters of dictatorship, Milosz says, must:

Learn to predict a fire with unerring precision
Then burn the house down to fulfil the prediction.

The lazy talk about the Middle East being a unified "Arab world" or a part of a unified "Muslim world" ignores the real divisions. The region is a mess of competing sectarian and ethnic interests. In Syria, they have combined to produce an apartheid state, in which Assad's Alawite Shia minority controls the police, army and intelligence agencies. The first weeks of the revolution were joyously anti-sectarian as the Syrian National Council refused to become a weapon for the avenging Sunni majority.

To beat the opposition and survive, Assad has to play his equivalent of the race card. He has to rally the support of his tribe by telling the Allawite and Christian minorities that they must unite behind him or face extermination. To make certain his prediction comes true he burns down the house just to make sure. He is organising the sectarian cleansing of Sunni neighbourhoods and trying to turn his desperate bid to hold on to power into a Sunni-Shia civil war.

As in the Spanish civil war, when Britain and France preached non-intervention while Hitler and Mussolini sent arms and men to help Franco's fascists, so the "international community" does nothing in Syria today while Iran and Hezbollah pour in Shia troops to slaughter civilians. Contrary to Syrian state propaganda, Sunni terrorists from al-Qaida are not in Syria to fight back against the regime just yet. But I cannot see them staying out for long.

Intervention to stop a regional war carries vast risks. But we should be honest about the consequences of acquiescing to Assad. A failed state and nest for terrorism will sit on the edge of the Mediterranean. Foreign mercenaries and Alawite paramilitaries will continue to massacre a largely defenceless population and the conflict may spread into Iraq, Israel, Turkey and Jordan. As the news that escapes the control of the Syrian censors reminds us every day, those who say we should do nothing also have blood on their hands.Comments will be switched on at 11am [ read more at link]

Syria's opposition join forces



clipped from video description: Uploaded by AlJazeeraEnglish on Dec 31, 2011

The two leading Syrian opposition blocs have agreed on a roadmap, in the event of a popular uprising succeeding in toppling the government of President Bashar al-Assad.

In a document signed in Cairo, the National Co-ordination Committee and the Syrian National Council, called for civilians to be protected under international law.

They also rejected any foreign intervention that could affect Syria's sovereignty and demanded a new constitution with a transition to democracy.

The latest development came as hundreds of thousands took to the streets across the country on Friday, aiming to demonstrate the strength of their movement to Arab League monitors checking whether Assad is implementing a pledge to halt a violent crackdown on unrest that has been raging since March.

Welcome!

In the name of God, the Most Merciful, the Most Beneficent, Peace be upon you and your entire family.

We thank you for visiting our humble website. We believe that our talents, blessings and opportunities come from a higher and mightier source.

The sometimes harsh reality of life is that there are fortunate people in one corner of the world and there are less fortunate ones on the

other end. Some are given abundance and some are given less.

Some have full access to good education and some would not even have the chance to read or touch a book.

The people we assist around the world would be very thankful for what we’re able to give them—which we could never do without your support.

Their gratitude serves as inspiration for the rest of us to step back and appreciate the abundance in our own lives.

In doing so, we at Care-A-Van find ourselves eternally grateful to have you as an ally in our fight to alleviate hunger, sickness and poverty.

What are you grateful for?

Let's all count our blessings and let us all be grateful to the endless love our Creator has been showering upon us.
May God be pleased with our efforts, multiply them in the blessing of His children, and may peace and mercy be upon us all

Care-A-Van Foundation is a nonprofit agency geared towards helping unfortunate families around the world. Initially formed to support the

Syrian refugees, we have seen the needs growing steadily every day.

Since the revolution in Syria began in March 2011, more than 6,000 innocent Syrians have been killed simply for asking for freedom. But even

more innocent men, women and especially children have been displaced by the extreme violence of the Assad regime as it tries to crush the

revolution by assaulting the cities, towns and villages of Syria.



Many of these refugees are now facing winter in refugee camps in Turkey, Lebanon and Jordan with only the things they carried with them

when they left their homes many months ago.


We who live in America are blessed beyond measure and have a history of coming to the aid of less fortunate souls

who have fallen on hard times.


We at Care-A-Van are a group of dedicated individuals who have come together to collect new clothes, blankets, toys, books and food items

to be shipped to the areas where refugees have fled seeking shelter and safety.

Many of these places are makeshift camps in host countries that were not prepared or equipped to support the unexpected influx of people.

As a part of the larger global family we can reach across the miles and embrace these precious families with gifts of love. We can keep them

warm with blankets and jackets, make them smile with toys and books, and nourish them with food items, milk, vitamins and medicines.


Charity is unlimited, and good deeds will always be rewarded tenfold.

"The parable of those who spend their way in the wealth of God is that of a grain,

out of which grows seven ears, in every ear a hundred grains."

A small grain is a charity, a morsel of rice is a charity...Even a smile is a charity...

We who are Care-A-Van Foundation are committed to providing continuous support to less fortunate families all year round.

We currently have volunteers in major cities in North America and hope to add volunteers in other cities as we go.

Won’t you share a piece of your heart and help us at Care-A-Van?

Care-A-Van Foundation will try to continue supporting the less fortunate families all year round.

Facts about Hunger

925 million people suffer from hunger and malnutrition around the world. That's more than the populations of the United States, Canada,

and the European Union.

Malnutrition affects 32.5% of children in developing countries, and not only in underdeveloped nations, but also in countries like Syria

who find themselves in the midst of a struggle with their own government that attempts to crush their revolution by denying the people their

basic needs. One out of every six infants is born with low birth weight due to under nutrition among pregnant women in developing countries.

And once again, the sometimes harsh reality is that even in the midst of revolutions such as have been happening in the Middle East,

babies continue to be born.

They are the hope for a better future for all of us. As members of the free world, as well as the greater human family to which we all belong,

will you kindly help us in providing assistance to these unfortunate children & their families?

Will you help us to build bridges between those who have and those who have not, thus making it a better world for all of us?

Do you have comments or questions on our organization?

Sudanese Chief of Arab Observers in Syria Slammed by Rights Groups | Middle East | English

Sudanese Chief of Arab Observers in Syria Slammed by Rights Groups | Middle East | English

clipped from article:Human rights groups and Syrian opposition activists are outraged that a Sudanese general from a nation with a checkered human rights record is heading an Arab league mission to measure Syria's crackdown on dissent.

The critics say General Mohamed Ahmed Mustafa al-Dabi's actions as a military commander and intelligence chief during Sudan's recent conflicts make him unfit for the Arab League post.

About 60 League-sanctioned observers are in Syria to check the government of President Bashar al-Assad's compliance with pledges to end the crackdown on dissent and release political detainees.

Some media reports say a few dozen of them come from Sudan, a nation highly criticized by human rights groups for its record of violence against government dissenters during years of civil unrest.

Al-Dabi, 63, is a key figure in President Omar al-Bashir's Sudanese government. Al-Bashir is wanted by the International Criminal Court for war crimes allegedly committed in western Sudan's Darfur region.

"The Arab League's decision to appoint as the head of the observer mission a Sudanese general on whose watch severe human rights violations were committed in Sudan risks undermining the League's efforts so far and seriously calls into question the mission's credibility," Amnesty International said in a statement this week

Syria's main opposition group, the Syrian National Council, is closely watching al-Dabi's moves. SNC advisor Ausama Monajed told VOA the group is "seriously considering" asking the Arab League to replace al-Dabi, but not just yet.

"We will wait to see if there is any indication that the monitoring mission will submit a report [on the situation in Syria] that is somewhat biased towards the Assad government," he said. An Arab League official defended the choice of al-Dabi to the Associated Press, saying he enjoyed the support of all 22 members.

But Al-Dabi has long been intertwined with the Sudanese leadership.

After two decades as a Sudanese army officer, al-Dabi backed the 1989 coup that brought Mr. Bashir to power and was rewarded with the post of head of military intelligence that year.

Officers opposed to Bashir's takeover attempted their own coup in 1990, but Bashir loyalists foiled the plot and executed more than 20 alleged conspirators.

Magdi Gizouli, a Sudan analyst at the Rift Valley Institute, says that opposition activists blame al-Dabi for the executions.

Al-Dabi switched roles in 1995 to serve as chief of Sudan's foreign spy agency. He returned to the military in 1996 to oversee operations against an insurgency in what was then southern Sudan.

Adeeb Yousif, a Sudanese human rights activist based in San Francisco, said al-Dabi was a front-line commander in Khartoum's civil war against southern rebels of the Sudan People's Liberation Army.

"He was a very tough person, he did not have any mercy in killing innocent civilians," Yousif said. [ read more at link ]

Arab League observers wouldn't restrain a regime determined to use violence to hang on to power - CSMonitor.com- CSMonitor.com

The Arab League observer mission in Syria is likely to fail - CSMonitor.com

clipped from article:he dispatch of about 50 unarmed Arab League observers to Syria earlier this week has failed to quell the country's mounting violence. Syrian activists reported that at least 32 people were killed across the country today, with the worst violence just outside Damascus.

n that incident, Syrian government security forces opened fire on protesters, sparking an hour of fighting that involved army defectors who have taken up arms against President Bashar al-Assad. The cities of Homs, Hama, and Daraa all witnessed killings.

That the observer mission is failing is hardly surprising. Mr. Assad has used extreme violence against his citizens to hold on to power for over six months now, and more recently, protesters have been fighting back. The Free Syrian Army, a group fighting against the regime, has taken responsibility for attacks on army convoys and military outposts in recent weeks, and appears to be gaining support. Some are warning that Syria could slide into civil war if the violence continues. By some measures, it's already there. At least 5,000 people have been killed so far, according to the United Nations, and there are now daily violent clashes over the question of who should run the country. [ read more at link]

Syria forces fire ‘nail bombs’ as masses protest

Syria forces fire ‘nail bombs’ as masses protest

Syrian forces were accused of firing nail bombs to disperse protesters as tens of thousands flooded the streets across the country in a bid to make their voices heard by Arab monitors.

clipped from article:

Activists urged the Arab monitors, who this week started a mission to oversee an Arab League plan to end the bloodshed, to do more to protect civilians from regime forces which they said killed another 25 civilians on Friday.

“We urge you to make a clear distinction between the assassin and the victim,” activists of the Syrian Revolution 2011 said on their Facebook page.

“Our revolution which was launched nine months ago is peaceful,” they said.

The United Nations said it expects Syrian authorities to grant unfettered access to the hard-won Arab observer mission which they only agreed to after weeks of prevarication.

“It is critical that the observer mission be given unhindered access and full cooperation by the government of Syria, and that its independence and impartiality be fully preserved,” UN spokesman Martin Nesirky said.

According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, monitors visited Idlib, Hama, Daraa and the Homs neighbourhood of Baba Amro on Friday.

State television said they also went to Hama and spoke to wounded people in a government hospital.

The mission has been the focus of controversy, with some opposition members unhappy with the choice of veteran Sudanese military intelligence officer General Mohammed Ahmed Mustafa al-Dabi to head it.

Dabi this week ruffled feathers by saying Syrian authorities were so far cooperating with the mission and by describing his visit to Homs as “good.”

“The observers must remain in the cities they visit to protect civilians,” said prominent human rights lawyer Haytham Maleh, who is a member of the main opposition umbrella group, the Syrian National Council.

Speaking to Arab news channels, Maleh said the Arab League must increase the number of monitors to ensure they can verify Assad’s regime is implementing all the terms of the bloc’s plan to end the violence.

These include the withdrawal of troops from all towns and cities that have been the focus of disturbances, protecting civilians, and the release of detainees, as well as opening a dialogue with the opposition.

Around 66 monitors are currently in Syria but there are plans to deploy between 150 and 200 observers.

Reporters Without Borders said the mission must visit journalists and bloggers being held by the regime and, in a statement, provided a “non-exhaustive” list of some 15 journalists it believes are in detention.

The media rights group said it was relieved by the reported release of a blogger who had been held since October 14, but said the observers must “interview those who have been freed after months in detention or else this mission will be just a sham.”

Friday’s dead included at least 23 civilians killed as security forces opened fire to disperse protesters, and two more killed along with two army deserters n an ambush by government troops, a watchdog said.

Huge demonstrations rocked northwestern Idlib province and Douma, a Damascus suburb where protesters clashed with security forces who fired “nail bombs” to disperse them, the Observatory said.

At least 24 protesters were hurt when security forces fired “nail bombs to disperse tens of thousands of demonstrators in Douma,” the Britain-based watchdog said, adding that protesters “hurled stones” in retaliation.

The report could not be independently verified.

Security forces also fired “stun grenades and tear gas” in Douma as 60,000-70,000 demonstrators headed to city hall, which the Arab observers visited on Thursday.

It was the “biggest” demonstration in the restive suburb since the uprising began in March, the Observatory said. [read more at link]

Eye On The World: Assad's Forces Kill 12 as Arab League Monitors Look on | #CriticalAnalyst

clipped from article: BEIRUT (Reuters) - Syrian security forces, undaunted by the presence of Arab League observers, have killed at least 12 protesters as hundreds of thousands demonstrated against the government of President Bashar al-Assad, opposition activists said.

Five members of the security forces were also killed in a shooting in the city of Homs, the British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said Friday.

Assad, 46, has signed up to an Arab League plan for a verifiable withdrawal of his troops and heavy weaponry from towns and cities, where they have been trying to crush protests that have raged since March.

But the presence of Arab League monitors in hotspots across Syria since Monday has, if anything, energised the protesters, while provoking scepticism in Western countries.

Demonstrators determined to show the scale of their movement to the monitors threw rocks at security forces in the Damascus suburb of Douma, where troops tear-gassed the chanting crowds.

Five people were shot dead in the city of Hama and five in the city of Deraa as crowds braved army and police, the Observatory reported, adding that at least two dozen people had been injured in Douma.

Five members of the security forces were also killed in a shooting in the city of Homs, the British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said Friday.

Five people were shot dead in the city of Hama and five in the city of Deraa as crowds braved army and police, the Observatory reported, adding that at least two dozen people had been injured in Douma.

"We are determined to show them (the monitors) we exist. Whether or not there's bloodshed is not important," an activist named Abu Khaled said by phone from the northern city of Idlib.

Most foreign media are banned from Syria and witness reports and videos are hard to verify.

An opposition supporter named Manhal said thousands had tried to reach the main square of Idlib to start a sit-in but failed "because the security forces are firing a lot of tear gas and a few rounds of live fire."

"People hoped the presence of monitors will prevent fierce attacks. I believe we have partial protection, I don't think they would use live fire on us in front of the monitors."

The Observatory said security forces had shot dead two people and wounded 37 in Idlib province.

SEA OF PROTESTERS

Amateur video from Idlib showed monitors in white baseball caps and yellow safety vests wading through a sea of protesters.

Some rushed at the observers, trying to shout over the thousands chanting "The people want to liberate the country!." [ read more at link]

Jordan Directions Syrian activists slam Arab League mission head | international

clip from article:Lt. Gen. Mohamed Ahmed Mustafa al-Dabi is the head of the Arab League monitoring mission to Syria.
STORY HIGHLIGHTS Al-Dabi is accused of "turning a blind eye" to Darfur The ICC has issued warrants for some Sudanese, including the president The Arab League monitoring team arrived in Syria this week

(CNN) -- The selection of a Sudanese military commander to head the Arab League monitoring mission in Syria is a "farce" because of his government's actions in the embattled Darfur region, a Syrian opposition group said Wednesday.

Lt. Gen. Mohamed Ahmed Mustafa al-Dabi has been named to chair the monitoring mission, designed to see whether the Bashar al-Assad regime is taking appropriate measures to end more than nine months of civil strife across the country. Al-Dabi and his monitoring team arrived in the Syrian city of Homs on Tuesday, and the observers were fanning out to other trouble spots Wednesday -- Idlib, Daraa and Hama.

The objections to al-Dabi's presence appeared in a statement from the Doctors Local Committee in Damascus. The remarks showed up in a post on the website of the Local Coordinating Committees of Syria, a major opposition activist network. CNN has not yet been able to get a reaction from the Arab League or Sudan, a league member.

"The appointment of al-Dabi taints the Arab League's efforts and characterizes it as nothing more than a political farce, causing little help but much harm to the situation in Syria. We call for a fair, independent observer mission to be allowed full and unrestricted access to all areas of Syria. It would be more appropriate, in our view, in the circumstances of the current conflict, for the United Nations to be mandated to conduct the monitoring mission," the statement said.

NOW Lebanon -‘World should bomb #Syria’

Lebanon news - NOW Lebanon -‘World should bomb Syria’

clip from article: Iran has played a key role in assisting Assad. Both Rahim and Amar tell of Iranian-speaking snipers who do not speak Arabic being deployed across Damascus and helping in repressing the protests. Rahim adds that other Arab world protests, in Tunisia, Egypt, Bahrain and Libya inspired Syrian’s citizens.

“Social networks played a key role for us too,” he says. “We were able to call or protests and convey messages. Yet then the terrible oppression started. In a protest held on March 15, authorities detained a group of 13 or 14 year-old boys who chanted against the regime and another boy who wrote on a wall ‘Assad go home.’ They were thrown into prison and when their fathers came to release them, members of the secret police told them: ‘If you want your children, bring your women in their place.

“Some of the children were eventually released and others were not. Among those who remained in prison was the boy who drew the graffiti. Two months later, they sent his mutilated body to his parents. He underwent severe abuse; his fingernails were pulled out before he was beaten to death. They told the parents: ‘That’s what happens to those who write a slogan against the leader.’ The parents photographed the body and sent us the images.”

Women raped, children killed - The testimonials include reports by husbands whose wives were raped in front of them by security agents and by brothers who say their sisters were raped as a form of revenge. There are many testimonials by parents about their children being sexually abused and dozens of horrific photos of mutilated and dismembered bodies.

An expert team of the UN’s Human Rights Commission in Geneva recently published a report asserting that since the protests started and through November, Syrian security forces detained some 100,000 people and killed more than 5,000, including at least 256 children. Some of them were tortured beforehand, both physically and sexually. The report contains difficult photos and videos. For example, a soldier shooting a two-year-old girl to death and telling the parents: “She should die now instead of growing up to be a protestor.”

However, Amar says the figures he possesses are much higher. “I estimate that nearly 15,000 protestors were killed so far. The report does not take into account people who were buried in backyards or those who disappeared.”

Rights Group Says Syria Hid Prisoners Ahead of Observer Visit | War & Peace in the Middle East

clip from article:The Observatory confirmed amateur video showing troops also fired live ammunition on demonstrators in Homs. It said six people were killed in the city Tuesday, among 15 protest-related deaths nationwide.

The activists said violence continued Wednesday, with army defectors killing at least four government soldiers and wounding 12 others in Daraa province.

The United States on Tuesday condemned the recent violence in Syria, saying the government’s actions go against its agreement with the Arab League. The State Department said Tuesday that if Syria continues to ignore the Arab League’s efforts, the international community will consider other ways to protect civilians.

Rights groups have questioned whether monitors can work independently and if the relatively small number of observers will render the mission ineffective. Initially 500 monitors were to have entered Syria, but now only 150 are likely to be allowed into the country.

Middle East analyst Jonathan Adelman of the University of Denver says the Arab League is hoping to push Assad away from fighting and into negotiations, but that the size of the observer mission is too small.

“It’s also simply not backed up by what really would get Bashar [al-] Assad to do something, which is the threat of foreign military intervention which we saw in Libya for example. But without that I think he’s going to play with them as long as he can,” said Adelman.

Fifty observers and 10 other Arab League officials arrived in the capital, Damascus, on Monday. The Arab League says the monitors also will visit several other Syrian cities, including Idlib, Hama and Daraa.

Syrian authorities agreed to the Arab League observers under international pressure and threats of Arab sanctions. The plan requires Syrian authorities to give the monitors freedom of movement everywhere except sensitive military sites. [read more at link]

Syria Detainees Hidden From Aran League Monitors: Human Rights Watch

clip from article: BEIRUT — Human Rights Watch is accusing Syrian authorities of hiding hundreds of detainees from Arab League monitors now in the country.

The New York-based international watchdog says the detainees have been transferred to off-limits military sites and urged the observers to insist on full access to all sites used for detention.

A group of Arab observers kicked off their one month mission in Syria with a visit to the flashpoint central city of Homs on Tuesday. Syrian officials have said the team will have unrestricted access to trouble spots but will not be allowed to visit sensitive military sites.

The Human Rights Watch report issued late Tuesday echoes charges made by Syrian opposition members that thousands of detainees were being transferred to military sites ahead of the observers' visit. [ read more at link]

Doubts raised over Syrian monitors - RTÉ News

clip from article:

The choice of a Sudanese general to head an Arab League mission in Syria has alarmed activists, who say Sudan's own defiance of a war crimes tribunal means the monitors are unlikely to recommend strong action against Syria's Bashar al-Assad.

The Arab League says Lieutenant-General Mustafa al-Dabi brings vital military and diplomatic expertise to its unprecedented mission to verify that Mr Assad is complying with a deal to end Syria's crackdown on protesters.

But some critics of Khartoum say it is all but impossible to imagine a Sudanese general ever recommending strong outside intervention, much less an international tribunal, to respond to human rights abuses in a fellow Arab state.

Eric Reeves, a professor at Smith College in Massachusetts, who studies Sudan and has written strong criticisms of its government, said the choice of a Sudanese general was a sign the Arab League might not want its monitors to produce findings that would force it to take stronger action.

"There is a broader question of why you would pick someone to lead this investigation.when he is part of an army that is guilty of precisely the sort of crimes that are being investigated in Syria," Mr Reeves said. [ read more at link]

THIS IS A BREAKING NEWS UPDATE. Check back soon for further information. AP's earlier story is below.

BEIRUT (AP) — Tens of thousands of defiant Syrian protesters thronged the streets of Homs Tuesday, calling for the execution of President Bashar Assad shortly after his army pulled its tanks back and allowed Arab League monitors in for the first time to the city at the heart of the anti-government uprising.

The pullback was the first sign the regime was complying with the League's plan to end the 9-month-old crackdown on mostly unarmed and peaceful protesters.

Yet amateur video released by activists showed forces firing on protesters even while the monitors were inside the city. One of the observers walked with an elderly man who pointed with his cane to a fresh pool of blood on the street that he said had been shed by his son, killed a day earlier.

The man, wearing a red-and-white checkered headdress, then called for the monitor to walk ahead to "see the blood of my second son" also killed in the onslaught.

"Where is justice? Where are the Arabs?" the old man shouted in pain. [ read more at link]

Independent: Assad accused of hiding tanks to appease observers

clip from article:The tanks that have terrorised the bullet-pocked, rubble-strewn streets of Homs were seen pulling out of its most restive neighbourhoods yesterday – but they are unlikely to have gone far.

Eleven tanks and other military vehicles were seen withdrawing from Baba Amr, the district that has borne the brunt of the army's bloody crackdown over the past few days, just ahead of the arrival of Arab League monitors.

However, human rights groups said the vehicles had not gone far, remaining hidden in government buildings and warehouses. "There's nothing to say they have left Homs. They will be back on the streets as soon as the observers have left," said Wissam Tarif, head of the human rights group Insan.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, described the withdrawal as a "show" which "proves the regime's continuation in deception".

Syrian Opposition Asks Arab League to Stop Homs Violence - Businessweek

Syrian Opposition Asks Arab League to Stop Homs Violence - Businessweek

clip from article: Dec. 26 (Bloomberg) -- Syrian opposition leaders said the government is carrying out a full-scale assault on the city of Homs and urged the Arab League to intervene.

Army tank shells demolished 20 homes in one district of the city, killing about 45 people and wounding 245 people in the past five days, Al Arabiya reported, citing activists. The Arab League denied a report by the television channel that President Bashar al-Assad’s security forces wounded a member of its delegation in Syria, according to Egypt’s state-run Middle East News Agency.

The Syrian National Council, an umbrella opposition movement, said in a statement yesterday that 4,000 Syrian soldiers were massing at the city. Burhan Ghalioun, leader of the organization seeking to topple Assad, told Al Arabiya today that government forces are “annihilating” civilians in Homs.

“Residents are calling for help and warning of the imminent danger they face if the Arab League does not immediately send its observers there,” the council said.

Ambassadors to Syria should visit the city to witness “the crimes” carried out by the Assad’s security forces, Ghalioun told Al Arabiya. France asked Arab League monitors to visit Homs today, Agence France-Presse reported. [read more at link]

Frantic Syrians: 'They are slaughtering us' - Pittsburgh Tribune-Review

clip from article: The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a British-based activist group, said security forces killed 15 people across the country yesterday, six of them in Homs. An activist network said 34 had been killed on Monday.

Some protesters shouted "We want international protection" in a video posted on YouTube apparently showing an encounter with the monitors. Some residents argued and pleaded with them to go farther into the Baba Amr quarter, where clashes have been especially fierce.

There was the sound of gunfire after a resident yelled at one monitor to repeat what he had just told his headquarters.

"You were telling the head of the mission that you cannot cross to the second street because of the gunfire. Why don't you say it to us?" the man shouted, grabbing the unidentified monitor by his jacket.

Gunshots crackled nearby as two monitors and two men wearing orange vests stood amid a crowd of residents, one begging the team to "come and see; they are slaughtering us, I swear."

The head of the mission said the first visit was "very good."

"I am returning to Damascus for meetings, and I will return tomorrow to Homs," Sudanese Gen. Mustafa Dabi said. "The team is staying in Homs. Today was very good, and all sides were responsive."

Activist reports just before the monitors arrived said that as many as a dozen tanks were seen leaving Baba Amr and that others were being hidden to fashion an impression of relative normality in the city while observers were around.
