Sheikh Arour Becomes Icon of the the Revolutionary Military Councils
The Islamic doctrine being championed by so many groups within the opposition has a major flaw: it condones interference into the beliefs and actions of any Syria to mend any wrong! This doctrine contradicts the constitutional rights and individual freedoms cherished by the civilized world. What is more, it is particularly intimidating to many non-Sunni communities of the Syrian mosaic. In my opinion. it is the key reason why the opposition has failed to unite. The Islamist groups represent a new tyranny. Rather than measuring a citizen’s rights by his devotion to al-Assad, they will measure his rights by his devotion to God and Muhammad. This is the same mentality that we hoped to overcome. It is undermining opposition unity and plunging us into a civil war without end. Both sides preaching faith in their God and nothing else.
These are my notes and remarks regarding President Mohamed Morsi’s speech on the anniversary of 6 October 1973 ,I would like to clarify that these are totally biased subjective remarks !! This is just a warning.
Here is the longest speech Morsi has said since his election as a president in June 2012.
October is global breast cancer awareness months. American Bedu readers who have followed my blog over the years know this is a very personal topic for me. For those who are newer to the blog I will recap my journey.
I have Stage IV metastatic breast cancer which means my cancer is not curable but treatable to maintain and/or slow down its growth. My initial journey with breast cancer started in June 2008 while living in Riyadh. I had always been diligent about doing monthly self breast exams and never forgot the day that I felt something that did not belong. A follow-up mammogram started me on a journey that began in Riyadh and ultimately brought me back to the United States. I continue my battle and am optimistic that I will begin a new clinical trial within two weeks.
