BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:45 A.M.) – The rebel forces in the Dara’a Governorate have made it clear to the Syrian government that they are not interested in reconciliation, despite recent attempts to convince these opposition groups to lay down their arms.

According to a military source in Dara’a, the rebel forces have now begun targeting peace delegations in southern Syria, while also intimidating locals that seek to reconcile with the government.

The source specifically mentioned a new attack by the rebels that was carried out on Friday.

The rebel forces carried out an ambush against a peace delegation in the Dara’a Governorate town of East Ghariyah; this resulted in the death of all three passengers.

In response to this rebel ambush, the Syrian government began heavily shelling the rebel positions in eastern Dara’a, while pulling back several peace delegations in the area.

Amin al-Husseini (Muslim Brotherhood leader for Palestine, Arafat’s uncle, Nazi propagandist, real founder of Fatah, Waffen SS general), when he became grand mufti of Jerusalem in 1921, began to assassinate all those who wanted to live in peace with settlers… Then blamed the Jews for all these murders.
Same tactics here : murdering the pacifists.
These rascals must be trampled under foot before any others!
If their dynamics work, you’re in for the same s**t as Arab-Palestinians are doing in Israel happening in South-Syria for decades.

I’m starting to understand why everyone’s so happy lately, at least I think I do. The Druze must have come to some sort of mutually beneficial arrangement with Assad that allows them some form of limited autonomy [something they’ve always wanted] and the Russians are going to guarantee their security. The upcoming SAA operations in Darra will probably be coordinated with the Druze militias and focus on removing the other rebel factions from Darra altogether. The Druze have been under constant threat from Isis as well as other Muslim groups, and Israel will be very happy to do anything at… Read more »

No I’m not Druze or any other religion, but I do believe in God. I didn’t say independence, I said limited self autonomy, there’s a big difference. I’d like my own state to have more say in what goes on in National politics, why wouldn’t I want the same for anyone else. I can justify the Druze having more independence from central government, but I can also justify everyone else having more independence from their own central governments everywhere too. “Iranian back forces were pulled out in deal for cooperation of rebel supporting countries in Daraa” The Dwarf king of… Read more »

Druzes have their own religion, they’re not Muslim.
Actually, their prophet is Jethro, Moses’ father in law.
Druzes had an autonomous area under French mandate.

They are Muslim and one of the very earliest branches of the faith. They seem different to other Muslims because they were influenced in their early days by the ancient Greeks and their philosophical ideologies which they incorporated into their own religion.
The Druze are more like Jews or Christians than other Muslims but they are Muslim.

You need to read the wiki more often and with 8 likes for you’re totally retarded comment so do a few of you’re fans[personally I think you have 8 separate accounts]. The Druze have been invited by Israel for decades to join them and become a part of greater Israel, there is no other group of people in the whole world that have a better relationship with Israel, not even the US. They visit, study and live in Israel, and historically have always had the friendliest relations for the last 4 or 5 centuries. Yes the Jews have been around… Read more »
