Huh, but you haven’t publish any of the other mass protests, the ones against him. Erdolf is being appeased by the Ba’athist AMN?

I begin to ask myself if that’s it. Wait a little : he vowed to take Damascus only 3 months ago before Lavrov told him to shut up. Look at all armoured thing he’s packing at the border. If they think it’s only to f**k the Kurds, they got it all wrong.
Nevertheless, isn’t it pitiful having had some countries like Iraq, Syria and Egypt led by pan-Arabists while they aren’t populated by Arabs and their cultural roots worth much better?

The symbol of islamofascist leadership…
And a good fascist is a dead fascist.

D’you know your ‘razul’ prophetised the future of Islam?
“Islam was initiated as something strange, and it would revert to its (old position) of being strange, and it would concentrate between the two mosques (Mecca and Medina).”
– Sahih Muslim, Book 1, Hadith n°270.
