    Default Syrians Call for 'Day of Rage'...

    Syrians Call for 'Day of Rage' on Facebook and Twitter
    Syrians are organizing campaigns on Facebook and Twitter that call for a "day of rage" in Damascus this week, taking inspiration from Egypt and Tunisia in using social networking sites to rally their followers for sweeping political reforms.

    Like Egypt and Tunisia, Syria suffers from corruption, poverty and unemployment. All three nations have seen subsidy cuts on staples like bread and oil. Syria's authoritarian president has resisted calls for political freedoms and jailed critics of his regime.

    The main Syrian protest page on Facebook is urging people to protest in Damascus on Feb. 4 and 5 for "a day of rage." It says the goal is to "end the state of emergency in Syria and end corruption."

    The number of people who have joined Facebook and Twitter pages calling for protests on Friday and Saturday is still relatively small, and some are believed to live outside the country.

    President Bashar Assad said in an interview published Monday that his nation is immune from the kind of unrest roiling Tunisia and Egypt.

    He was quoted in the Wall Street Journal as acknowledging that the events signaled a "new era" in the Middle East. But he said Syria, which has gradually shed its socialist past in favor of the free market in recent years, was insulated from the upheaval because he understood his people's needs and has united them in common cause against Israel.

    Social networking sites were integral to rallying protesters in Tunisia and Egypt.

    Facebook is banned in Syria, which makes organizing more difficult — even though many Syrians manage to access the social networking site anyway. More than 2,500 people have joined the page calling for protests on Feb. 4-5, with another 850 joining a page in favor of President Assad.

    Assad, a 45-year-old British-trained eye doctor, inherited power from his father, Hafez, in 2000, after three decades of authoritarian rule.

    He has since moved slowly to lift Soviet-style economic restrictions, letting in foreign banks, throwing the doors open to imports and empowering the private sector.

    But Assad has not matched liberal economics with political reforms and critics of the regime are routinely locked up, drawing an outcry from international human rights groups.

    He is seen by many Arabs, however, as one of the few leaders in the region willing to stand up to arch enemy Israel. And his support for Palestinian and Lebanese militant groups opposed to the Jewish state as well as his opposition to the U.S. invasion of Iraq has won him more support among his people than other Arab rulers.(AP)

    Oh please, give me a break! Where did they get this piece of news from? When was the last time that Bachar El Assad fired a bullet towards the Israelis in the Golan area or any other area? Israel targeted a whole Syrian area under the pretext of nuclear facilities and yet Bachar Al Assad didn't say a word.

    This is cunning.

    Nothing is gonna happen in Syria.Nothing happens in a state where its regime is feared and needed by Israel,Arabs,Iran and rest of the world.The Syrian regime managed to build for himself a geo-political status in the region where its sudden disappearance might cause a regional inbalance.

    Not just that. I went on a day trip to Syria over the holiday season to visit a friend of the family and I noticed Syrians in a general sense are extremely lazy.

    Syrians Call For Facebook Revolution



    February 2, 2011
    Following the recent revolutions in Tunisia and Egypt, Syrians have launched a number of Facebook pages calling for change in Syria and organising protest events.
    One group, entitled “The Day of Syrian Rage” and with some 200 members, called for a “popular movement against injustice, corruption and tyranny by the Syrian authorities” through peaceful protest in different cities around the country and in front of Syrian embassies worldwide on February 5.
    Another group, supported by some 150 Facebook, was formed under the title “An invitation to walk [taking] the approach of Tunisia and Egypt in the quest for freedom and democracy” and also named February 5 the day of action.
    Yet another group called for a peaceful protest in front of the Syrian parliament on the same day.
    The Facebook groups include demands for everything from constitutional change to ending the state of emergency and even the departure of the regime itself.
    One page, with 250 members, called for a peaceful protest in main square of Aleppo on February 25, focusing on local demands such as helping residents find work in their city.
    However, a human rights activist told Damascus Bureau, “Most people who call for those protests are opponents outside Syria, who do not have the popular ground or the ability to communicate with different segments of the Syrians, in addition to the high expectations of demands they call for.
    “Facebook use is still not prevalent among many Syrians, and so far limited to a small group of them compared to census numbers, and even to the Syrians who use the Internet in general,” he added.
    But the activist added that that “the Facebook revolutions which started in other countries will not stay away from Syria, and that what is happening may be the start of the ability of the Syrians to organise themselves and their protest activities across the arena of Facebook and the virtual world.”
    Meanwhile, a pro-regime page with some 130 members was set up calling for marches in support of the Syrian regime and its president on the same date as the “ Day of Rage” in Damascus, Latakia and Hasaka.
    Pro-regime activists also left messages on the walls of the protest groups. One wrote, “We have one god, one people and one leader,” while another warned those who called for protest, “We love President Bashar [al Assad] and are ready to sacrifice our lives for him.”
    Other messages expressed fear over lawlessness and looting in Egypt during the current protests.
    Another event with some 200 members was listed for February 10.
