Libya weaponry somehow finds its way into Syria.
Egypt and Syria – ‘.. Saudi Arabia and Qatar on the other hand are the source of the funds with which the arms deals are being sealed with Lebanese and Turkish markets to smuggle weapons into Syria. These are the same funds with which the mercenaries are being bought, while the involvement of Bandar Bin Sultan and the Saudi institution of takfir led by Sheikh Saleh al-Louhaydan at the level of the Syrian events is no longer a secret to anyone. In that same context, the presence of Adnan al-Ar’our and his satellite channel in Riyadh constitutes in itself proof for the role of conspiracy and sabotage played by Saudi Arabia in Syria. Had Qatar and Saudi Arabia truly wanted to end the violence in the country, they would have discontinued their funding of the armed activities and pulled the hands of the Lebanese March 14 forces from the Syrian domestic arena as they did via the 2008 Doha accord.’

BBC balanced reporting – Frank ”Goebbels” Gardner at it Again
Wonderful bit of balanced reporting from the BBC’s Frank Gardner. He said of Bahrain at 5.42pm on BBC News:
“The Shiite majority does suffer discrimination, but the rest of the population is getting fed up with the continual disruption and demonstrations.”
I remember similar arguments during apartheid:
“The black majority does suffer discrimination, but the rest of the population is getting fed up with the continual disruption and demonstrations.”
Doesn’t sound so good, does it? Anyway, here is to the BBC and keeping the interests of those troublemaking majorities firmly in the context of the much more important comfort of their oppressors.
He then explained that the oppression of opposition in Bahrain could not in the least be compared to the oppression of opposition in Syria, because in Bahrain the government had promised reform.
