He has a problem, and YOU have problem

HIS one is that Arab politics at times are exceedingly slow and takes times, and
YOUR one is that you, typical Israeli but quite like the Greeks, are impatient by nature.

Ever wondered what makes Jewish and Greek businessmen best of the world so very often ? But while Greece, whenever broke, clearly is on the European continent, Israel is right in the midst of the Arab World, and so in the centre of an area where some developments get on overnight but the more typical ones are most exceedingly slow.

And so it looks as if the play of Dr Assad (he learnt it while in London, to drink tea and wait ) may play off. It of course is far too early to tell. My bet still is 70% against the worthy Doctor, but his score gets up by the day

Dr Assad is playing for time. He knows from history that leaders who simply streched matters out sufficiently profit from the simple fact that opposing folks have to work to get their living ... and that compromise offers may find some ground

And he is right - As you can see, 800+ deaths have so far yet to get a reaction.

But somehow I think that the English doctor and his lovely wife will be residing elsewhere by the of the year.

Stretching things out and playing for time?

I love watching old movies here is one by Omar Amiralay who was prominent in Damascus Spring 2000? He died in February of this year. Everyday Life in a Syrian village 1976

those who died in Tunisia, Egypt, Yemen, Bahrain and Syria did it for their freedom not for some price. It's not a mercantile transaction.
The population stood up against the power that was oppressing them......So now don't forget that israel is oppressing as well arab population. What if the arab-revolt-tsunami spills over israel?

You are mixing up 2 different situations.
I do not see that the Syrians that rightly (but at a high price) stand up against the power that is oppressing them suddenly decided to take a day off & protest against Israel instead.
It was a cheap stunt by the Syrian leadership to divert attention & from your comments it seems to have worked.

1) you do not see. It's right. It was not syrians who tried/crossed the border with Golan. It's palestinian refugees who claim their right of return to the stolen land and houses. Not syrians.

2) It seems that israeli gov. propaganda works very well on you.

enjoy your day

But then what does he know

Is this the same Mr. Vertigo who said "I discuss Syria but not with you and here." ? What made you change your mind ?
The people who crossed the border throwing stones and chanting "Death to Israel" were born in Syria, so did their parents. They are not Refugees.

Some even tried to claim asylum in Israel.

So those who were on the egyptian, lebanese, jordanian borders are all manipulated by Assad. The only thing is that syrian army did not prevent palestinian refugees to demonstrate.
Again it was not syrian people who crossed the border (seen on all international/arabic media).
Your bloger is in the US and has for sure access to information but...his blog is an analysis not facts. But for sure I will stop reading your posts and just focus on his blog as you only do copy/paste

They have been trying the "Tsunami" your so looking forward to, since 48!

In fact even before that.
See The Riots http://www.campsci.com/iguide/chevron.htm

Was the latter also justified due to your "Israeli Oppression"?
