Enrique Ferro's insight:

After initially defending her decision to appear in a Tel Aviv University performance on Monday, Native American poet Joy Harjo now states she was too quick to speak against the academic and cultural boycott of Israel and has scheduled a visit to the West Bank. "I realize that I was defensive very quickly and probably should have waited to make any statement. I really didn't know about the boycott," Harjo wrote on Facebook early today.

Hundreds Reported Slain in Attack on Syrian Alawite Village -- News from Antiwar.com

Enrique Ferro's insight:

Such are the lies spread by the MSM scoundrels in order to promote the rebel murderers: "The most improbable of the claims, coming from foreign pro-rebel activists, is that some random pro-regime militia made up of “other Alawites” deliberately massacred a village full of Alawites for no apparent reason."

IPS – Constitutional Poll Polarises Egypt | Inter Press Service

IPS – Constitutional Poll Polarises Egypt | Inter Press Service | Global politics | Scoop.it
Constitutional Poll Polarises Egypt - This Saturday, Egyptians will head to the polls to vote on a controversial draft constitution. The referendum has divided this nation – still pulsing with the revolutionary fervour that toppled former dictator...
Enrique Ferro's insight:

“Egypt’s earlier (1971) constitution was much better than the document that will be put to a vote this Saturday,” Gaber Gad Nassar, constitutional law professor and former constituent assembly member, told IPS. “The draft charter fails to reflect the demands of last year’s popular uprising, which ended 30 years of corruption and dictatorship” under the now-deposed president Hosni Mubarak.

Foreign Policy: Why the U.S. shouldn't let the Syrian rebels win

Foreign Policy: Why the U.S. shouldn't let the Syrian rebels win | Global politics | Scoop.it
It may well be true, as recent news reports tell us, that Bashar al-Assad 's regime in Damascus, increasingly desperate in the face of an unrelenting rebel onslaught, is prepared to use chemical weapons against its own citizens.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

The most powerful elements of Syria's armed opposition would almost certainly be no friend of liberal democracy were they to seize power for themselves. Consider this: The dissidents who brought down autocratic governments in Egypt and Tunisia, even the political Islamists among them, were far more politically liberal than what we see in Syria. And look at those countries now.

Why western military intervention in Syria is coming soon: to protect Israel

Enrique Ferro's insight:

THE SUDDEN US-European concern about Syria's chemical weapons, and the growing panic over the possibility of their use by Syrian President Bashar al-Asad against his own citizens reveal an almost certain intention to intervene militarily in Syria to decisively settle the situation and overthrow the ruling regime in Damascus.
