Plea from Syrian-American doctor

August 3rd, 2013
02:15 PM ET

Editor's note: The following is a message sent to CNN's Amanpour by Zaher Sahloul, a Syrian-American doctor who has appeared on the program in the past.

"More than 70% of [Homs'] inhabitants are forced out and the rest are being squeezed. There are daily shelling of the largest neighborhood (Alwaar) where most of the previously displaced people went to. The population of Homs including my family feel desperate.

"This is of course part of the larger picture of Genocide in Syria, but no one is talking about it except for your program. The public should know that this [is] the first Genocide in the Twenty First Century and the worst since Rowanda [sic]. You should also be critical of the silence of our administration and the international community. The UN has the Responsibility to Protect the Syrian people and they are not discharging their legal duty.

"In spite of the daily war crimes, crimes against humanity and indiscriminate shelling of civilians by long range Ballistic surface to surface missiles (first in the history by a regime against its people), there is outrage.

"Only 15% of the American people are paying attention to what is happening in Syria due to the poor and inconsistent media coverage.!!"

    You speak the truth! The Civil War in Syria is a genocide, and reportedly over 100,000 people have lost their lives. I have read that 20 percent of the population are now refugees.

    The people are going to have to settle down & fight the military.

    The same thing will happen in Syria as happened during the revolt against the Shah; the troops firing on the civilians ended their support of the Shah & flipped sides when a good percentage of the military had lost friends & relatives due to military shootings.

    The military is shooting their own families, ths won't last much longer.

    After Afghanistan and Iraq and economic challenges at home, the United States is understandably reluctant to intervene forcefully in Syria, but it can surely do more to help save civilian lives. Hardly anything can be expected from the United Nations.

    In a video interview done yesterday, Riad Al-Asad, the head of the FSA (or maybe now the former head of FSA after they tried to eliminate him with a bomb), revealed the truth about the so called the Free Syrian Army (mostly Al-Qaeda foreign Jihadists) and the Syrian National Coalition which is the Western and Wahhabi "Syrian opposition" hand-picked by the USA/Saudi Arabia. Here are some of what he said:

    http://www.youtube.COM/watch?v=YjQEuv3FQaI

    – The Syrian opposition suffers from fragmentation and disperse among the gunmen and its forces committed a lot of mistakes on the ground and abuses of the civilian population.
    – The FSA lost a lot during the past year. He said: "We have witnessed remarkable progress of the Syrian army in many areas and the reason for this is the weakness of the opposition and the chaos in their ranks. This has led some of defected officers to defect back to the Syrian Army".
    – He said: "it became a mess because of the selective distribution of arms and money and we now have Islamic emirates inside Syria headed by warlords."
    – He accused the opposition abroad of stealing funds that they received in the name of the FSA in order to serve their personal interests.
    – He criticized the political opposition at home and abroad, said: "The Syrian opposition was completely substandard and failed the Syrian people and do not have a presence in the Syrian interior .. And the fact that they are the worst opposition in history. "
    – The opposition decision to receive funds, arms and aid from Arab and Western countries has had a deep impact in the formation of loyalties and affiliations to these sponsored countries instead of forming loyalties to the Syrian people.
    – He also stated that the Syrian people went out in demonstration against the the external opposition and their forces (i.e. FSA and Al-Qaeda) and this has been concealed by the media.

    This so-called doctor should buy a dictionary to understand the meaning of genocide. What a crap. Everytime the syrian army recontrol a city or territory we hear some......talking about genocide. Considering that 80% of the syrian army is sunni this is a total joke. I'm very disappointed by Ms Amampour I thought she was a professionnel in her field. To all of you who have no clue about what is going on in Syria you should get your information from other sources than american outlets.

    Is it really the Syrian Army shelling innocent people in Homs?

    Personally, I doubt it.

    Don't think the excitement consuming caffeine. Unless you have a medical problem that shows normally, a cup of coffee on a daily basis will not be bad for you. It may even be the best thing. Talk to your medical professional if you're uncertain if caffeine ingestion can be something you have to be engaging in.
