Sometime ago, we read in one of the WikiLeaks cables that Assad of Syria and Iran instigated the protests over the cartoons of Mohammad in Denmark. If true, and we should not discount its credibility, then the question we must ask with regard to Libya: Are Syria and Iran behind Libyan US Embassy attack?
Considering the tragedies taking place in Libya and Egypt, it makes a whole lot of sense if Syria and Iran were behind the killing of a US Ambassador because it diverts the attention away from any Arab Spring regime change by arguing that their replacements are worse. In fact, Fox News has dedicated itself to this theme already.
ASSAD IS A TERRORIST BUT NOT A REAL MUSLIM
Besides the link, the below excerpt was published by Haaretz in Israel.
Mind you, there is a big difference between Mubarak and Assad. Mubarak was a friend of the west but Assad is our worst enemy. What better way for Assad to save his skin by directing Sunni anger at the west and blaming an Israeli for making the movie? Even when more investigation showed the filmmaker is a fake and a con artist who adapted an Israeli identity just for that purpose?
What better way for Iran to shed bad light on Arab Sunnis than to put them on display on an international stage as the mad cows of the region?
IRAN CARRIES THE SWORD
What is Saudi Arabia doing meanwhile? The al-Sauds may be working the phones and their intelligence services may be pouring over their information to make sense of the puzzle. However, in the grand scheme of things, Saudi Arabia has always been reactive, and not proactive like Iran. It wears the shield and Iran carries the sword.
As for the Muslim Brotherhood, let us go on record by saying that not only this organization is a cancer, but if Iran is able to manipulate it like this, it’s also not the brightest of organizations.
We doubt if our President, who rarely attends intelligence briefings while he usually arrives at the Oval Office around 9:30am (George Bush was a 7:00 am kind of a guy), will expose the truth on this. In fact, we doubt if any of the media outlets will put the two together (The Mohammad Cartoons and the film) to point the finger at Assad or Iran. It simply does not help Obama’s elections.
Nonetheless, Assad won’t survive whether the west comes to his aid or our aid. Syrians are oblivious to these matters because theirs is a micro world aiming for the basics in human rights and liberties.
