    Its now legal to fund terrorism?

    Oh, Sunni extremists promising ethnic cleansing suddenly become "activists" when they are killing Shi'ites that happen to be in a country America doesn't like.

    The Great Syrian Revolution and the Hypocrisy of World´s and Rich Arab Gulf-Countries
    Is it possible that the whole world in general and the rich Gulf countries in particular have nothing to offer except declarations and condemnations against this murderous regime of Assad who continuous to kill and slaughter women children and peaceful civilians with Russian war planes and helicopters and the world are watching. The rich gulf countries they only watch on TV how the brave Syrian people are slaughtered but send nothing more than really words nothing substantial to be counted for. The brave Syrian Army and the civilians would need medical help, food and anti-warplanes weapons that these countries can easily send to them instead of declarations and only talks in conferences in big nice air-conditioned halls while more than 2 million Syrians are being displaced and/or sent to the Jordan desert, Turkey or Lebanon.
    While Russia and Iran send real weapons, war-planes and rockets to kill the civilians in Syria the whole world and the so-called Arab-league countries send only declarations. The ex-president of the Syrian National Assembly (Mr. Ghaliune) has declared that they have received in all some 15 million dollars from all rich Gulf countries: what a shame!...
    We hear on the other hand of princes and Shaikhs from the these rich Gulf countries who buy for themselves private jet-planes and luxury yachts for hundreds of millions of dollars while see children and women being raped and killed by the Assad Syrian regular army and their Shabbiha or witness children in Yemen under all levels of poverty eating nothing but desert´s sands. The whole world seems to have lost all senses of humanity or consciousness or ethics. All the free thinking and peace loving people of this World need to do everything in their power to help and send all possible funds and medical help to support the Syrian civilians. But also those who can and in a position of power should try every possible way to send Assad and his generals together with Mr. Putin and Mr. Lavrov who are supporting him and assisting him in his crime against humanity by killing the great innocent people of Syria to the International world´s war-crimes Tribune.
