Megiah lehem, serves them rights also serves the muslims in Egypt, Libyia, Turkey and all over the world right. It serves the Greeks and all the Europeans who are living in poverty right. They are all being paid back for the atrocities they have committed over the centuries

7. 7 million in poverty
MK Ultra ,   Camaguey, Cuba   (06.20.11)
Look at that, even Syria has less poor people than the US. But that's probably because they know better than to give upwards of 3+ billion of its taxpayer bucks to Israel
8. funny if not sad
Israel Israeli ,   Tel Aviv   (06.20.11)
It would be funny if not sad. Most of the Arab people suffers in real poverty and misery. The only way to help them would be to ensure a strong and safe Israel, and force the corrupt leaders to work with Israel. Instead, the world tries to weaken Israel and gives money to the least deserving group of Arabs, the "Palestinians".
9. Peace and Prosperity

This speech by President Assad is welcome. Syria is quite a large nation in local terms. It's per capita GDP of $5500 is too low. The total combined GDP of Israel, Gaza, Judea and Samaria/The West Bank, Syria, Jordan, Egypt and Lebanon is only $1.6 Trillion. The reasons for the protests are numerous. Israel needs a good neighbour to its north east. No outside forces should be attempting to destabilize the country. Beware the downwardly spiralling vortex of chaos. Syria should not become another Libya. President Assad has a different make up to Qaddafi. The deaths are a tragedy. The violence must come to an end. Israelis should not wish enmity on the Syrian people. The Middle East is meant to be a place of stability, order, benevolence and expansiveness. Prayers for Syria.
