Jumblat Condemns Jarmana Bombing, Urges Syria's Druze to Join Revolt

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Progressive Socialist Party leader MP Walid Jumblat condemned on Thursday the bombing that targeted the Jarmana town in Syria on Wednesday, saying that it is aimed at stirring sectarian tensions in the country.

He therefore urged in a statement Syria's “Druze population to join the Syrian rebels who are marking in blood heroic battles against oppression on a daily basis.”

“Their failure to join the rebels does not fall in line with their heroic stances during the great Syrian revolt that overthrew the French mandate,” he added.

“Jarmana has been used as a scene of terrorism that seeks to end the Syrian revolt and maintain fear among the people,” he continued.

Jumblat offered his condolences over the lives that were lost and saluted the sides that refused to get dragged into the “Syrian regime's trap to create strife.”

Simultaneous car bombings killed more than 50 people and left a trail of destruction in Jarmana a town near Syria's capital Damascus on Wednesday.

The explosives-packed cars were detonated at daybreak in a pro-regime neighborhood of the mainly Christian and Druze town.

Jumblatt is urging Syrian Druze to arm because there will be no security as Syria descends into chaos.

It will be those that organize and arm themselves that have a seat at the table once the dust settles.

The salafists have already set up provisional Islamic governments in Aleppo and Homs ...

From the BBC

"Syria Islamist fighters in Aleppo reject new opposition"

"Islamist rebel groups in the Syrian city of Aleppo say they reject the new Western-backed opposition coalition.

In an internet video, they denounced what they called "the conspiratorial project" and said they intend to establish an "Islamist state" in Syria."

And so what if they want to create an Islamist state? They're a minority anyways. Hizbocrap officially wants to create a state that follows Iran in Lebanon but that's not gonna happen...

Jumblatt urges the Druze community to fight Hezbollah and the Shabi7a in Syria.
What's next I wonder?

Andre: I wish that your predictions materialize! However, the druze are scared to fight ha anywhere! Although, they have been provoked, and tried, in Aaley (2008), and Bkaata, recently...The druze only specialties are to pick on, or slain Lebanese Christians!
