A friend just brought to my attention the following news item.
A Jewish Member of the British Parliament named Robert Halfon has just proposed a motion to indict Rifaat al-Assad who lives comfortably in London. For those who do not know Rifaat, he is named the Butcher of Hama for killing over 30,000 of its citizens in February 1982 after two weeks of incessant shelling. Sounds familiar? One Assad is the butcher of Hama and his nephews are the butchers of Homs.
Somehow, somewhere, Syrians must have angered Zeus.
Mr. Halfon seems to be the only one so far to sponsor this motion. No surprise there because Syrians are in the midst of living the ultimate lip service era in the history of mankind. Everyone wants our safety but no one is willing to lift a finger to effectively demolish the Assad regime responsible for our permanent non-safety.
The item is worthy if you juxtaposed it against the Arab League protecting Omar al-Bachir of Sudan, another butcher on a large scale.
At what point are corrupt practices of a group of nations become a clear and present danger on other societies is the question of the century. Until then, we Arabs have no choice but to break this monopoly on our societies by Arab progenies ruling with absolute cronyism.
