The Syrian bloodbath - An Israeli response

This Ongoing War..
16 February '13..

We're not Arabs. So it may sound jarring, even condescending, if we express outrage and pain at the ongoing Arab-on-Arab carnage. Arabs are proud people, and from experience we know they have an acute sensitivity to what they perceive as patronization on the part of non-Arabs.

Still it's way beyond shocking to see how little is being done by Arabs in the face of the latest Arab-on-Arab slaughter going on day after day in Syria.

Saudis say Syria death toll may be 90,000: Kerry

AFP February 14, 2013 | US Secretary of State John Kerry said on Thursday the death toll in Syria may have reached 90,000, citing figures given to him by his Saudi counterpart Prince Saud al-Faisal... The figure is much higher than estimates given this week by UN rights chief Navi Pillay who said the death toll from the civil war was “nearing 70,000... Estimates say more then 750,000 people have fled the country, while a further 2.5 million are displaced internally.”

It may be jarring, as well, for readers of the Lebanese newspaper An-Nahar to see what is being doing to Syrians today by the hated Israelis. The following report is appearing these evening in a number of Arab venues.
