SYRIA: SURRENDER OR RESISTANCE ? -By Daniel Mabsout

Where sectarianism failed,
secularism might work, especially
that Syria seems to have been taken
into Russian custody. From the Axis
of the Resistance to the Russian
Umbrella a big step has been made
and certainly a step that is not in
favor of the armed Resistance .The
truth is that the World Order had
more than one trick in his bag
regarding Syria and, for some
reasons, Syria could not continue to
fight this war the way it started
fighting it on behalf of the Axis of
the Resistance, and as part of this
Axis. Maybe Syria was not qualified
– from the beginning- for this kind of
challenge that requires a social
solidarity and a real consensus
around the government and the rule
and other things as well that were
missing.
For this reason, as we say in Arabic,
“the wind blew contrary to where the
vessel was heading.” The winds blew
the other way and the Syrian Spring
came late and is just starting and
this means that Syria who will soon
attend Geneva 2- without the
presence of Iran – will not open
soon the Golan Heights in front of
the freedom fighters. It will rather
regain the trust of the World Order
and will continue- like before- to
play on political contradictions to
find its place on the world plateau,
a place that it will try its best to
keep and that seems to have the
priority over any other place.
Syria has won this war no doubt but
has failed in reaping the fruits of its
victory for the benefit of the Axis of
the Resistance for which it bravely
fought and much sacrificed, but it
was not in the cards that Syria
invests in such a victory .
The particularity of the Arab Spring
– whether in Syria or in Egypt or
elsewhere – is that it works on
consecrating a certain status quo , it
does not seek to change but seeks
rather to make any favorable change
in the right direction not only
impossible but also unwanted and
undesired . This way , after all the
plight it went through and which is
not over yet , Syria will remain the
same, with the difference that it
might not – for a long time – seek
any favorable significant change in
the right direction ..
We salute Syria, its people and its
army and we think that no sacrifice
is wasted that is offered to a
righteous cause. The choice is
always there and the road is open
and the Golan Heights could be
liberated the same way Lebanon was
liberated…The path of the
Resistance is hard but that of
surrender is harder…
