Syria has been having it's share of western orchestrated "protests" I have covered them a number of times. I won't rehash, click the label at the bottom for background.
Western orchestrated protests get all the attention, and everything else is ignored.
The upheaval in Syria is raising concern among some of the estimated 100,000 Druze who live in Israel. (Golan Heights- Occupied territory)
Many consider themselves Syrian, and call for the return of the Golan Heights to Syria - a piece of land that Israel captured from Syria in the 1967 Arab-Israeli war.
A rally in support of Syrian leader Bashar Al-Assad - on the Israeli side of the demilitarized zone.
It is one of several that have been held on the Golan Heights since the start of Syria's uprising.
Supporting Syria's government is important to residents like Ghandi Al-Kahlouni. He was a young boy when Israel captured this land. He says he has never stopped being a Syrian. "It is true that we are under Israeli occupation but we are part of the Syrian homeland and what happens in the homeland happens to us," he said.
Ignore the pro-Israel spin. What else can one expect from msm? Only they would spin a continuing occupation as a positive.
Here are the facts. These people are occupied. They are Syrians and wish to go back to being part of Syria. No spin is going to change that.
They are protesting in support of Syria.
I wonder how Israel feels about that? Perhaps they should go in and slaughter a bunch of them, like in Palestine. Given their penchant for "freedom & democracy"?
