Ghouta: Sounds from hell

10 3 18

The massacres and crimes committed by the fascist Baathist regime against its own people since the outbreak of the Syrian revolution in 2011 are a disgrace to humanity. The scenes of death, destruction and demolition broadcasted from Ghouta and the pictures that speak without words, images from which we can hear the cries of infants disturbed by the horrors and crimes in the world they are surrounded by. These infants preferred to leave the world, as there is no safety and security for them in this brutal world. In these pictures, we hear the screams of bereaved mothers as they hold their shrouded children in their arms, as well as the screams of grieving men as they stand before the corpses of their children, who they have pulled from under the rubble of their homes. Their faces and clothes are draped in the dust of oppression as well as the dust of the buildings bombed by Russian planes loaded with rockets and bombs. We can hear the groans of those who are still alive and trapped under the rubble, calling for help, and the screams of the survivors as they see their skies filled with flames and clouds of smoke fill the air and everything around them.

These chilling images have not been seen before in the world. They have been caused by the most brutal and fascist regime in history. Despite this, the international conscience is absent and overlooks the acts of this regime and the situation in Ghouta, just as the hypocritical international community, which believes in double standards, was absent in the case of Aleppo, Madaya, Deir Ez-Zor and Idlib.

UN: ‘Hell on earth’ in Syria’s Eastern Ghouta must end

We witness how the international community objects and revolts when an individual act of terrorism is committed, as was the case with the Charlie Hebdo magazine. The corrupt Arab leaders, sheikhs and elites were the first to condemn this act, but they were completely silent in the face of the terrorism exercised by a state that is annihilating an entire nation.

Before I blame the West for watching........
