The Shameful Silence of the Arab World About the Crimes of the Syrian Regime

Most Arab States and Arab media have chosen to remain silent about the brutal crackdown by the Syrian regime against unarmed civilian protesters. The international stance has been disappointing but the shameful Arab silence is baffling. The impotent Arab League had given the green light for the no-fly zone over Libya and supported the UN Security Council Resolution 1973 which called for the protection of civilians in Libya. Yet the same Arab League has not taken any steps to protect the civilians in Syria. The Arab League's silence is interpreted by many as backing a murderous regime and giving it the green light to continue with its brutal abuse of the Syrian people.

I wonder Where's Hamid Dabashi or George Galloway and other "citizens of the world" to express their Outrage in Solidarity to the oppressed 'Masses' of Syria or Libya ? Guess these 'Edward Said' Wannabes have too much in stake to dare admit bluntly "Keh Goh Khordeem" ...
