Syria: Another pipeline explosion near al-Rastan

While the Arab League observer mission in Syria is debated in the West and also by the Arab League member states in an upcoming meeting within Cairo, Egypt, as explained here, there has been another explosion of a gas pipeline in Syria. Yesterday near the Syrian town of al-Rastan, another gas pipeline has been blown up in the air – a truly terrorist act.

This attack on a gas pipeline near the Syrian town of Homs was the fourth attack on a pipeline in this region. It is understandable that the so-called Syrian “opposition” based in Istanbul, Turkey, blames the Syrian government for these attacks. But it is just not logical that the Syrian government is responsible for these acts of terror against gas pipelines.


It is hardly understandable why the government or government troops should do this. No doubt, this is not the first false accusation and statement by the questionable members of the so-called “Syrian National Council” (SNC) based in Istanbul. We remember their hypocritically and false statements about the horrible act of terrorism within the Syrian capital Damascus – just one day before the holy feast of Christmas.

Although these members of the dubious “Syrian National Council” (SNC) abroad tries to find declarations why the Syrian government is responsible for those acts of terrorism and gas pipeline explosions, it is really hardly to believe. They say that the Syrian government orchestrated those attacks themselves to represent the religious extremism within Syria and to thus bind the Syrians to their government in these hard days.

On the one hand, these accusations have to be strongly put into questions. On the other hand – if the Muslim Brotherhood is still known as terrorist organization within some Western countries, how can members of such a questionable organization blame religious extremism of others? We recall members of the “Syrian National Council” (SNC) are also members of the Muslim Brotherhood or even Salafits (Salafiyha). It is a fact.

The Syrian public wants protection and above all they want to have reforms and that the Syrian government implements “good” reforms. Then, when gas and oil pipelines are constantly blown up by the Government, the Syrian public would rather be pushed away from their government and starting to blame them without hesitation. So it is really questionable and seems just to be another “propaganda lie” by members of the “Syrian National Council” (SNC) based in Istanbul, Turkey.

Not to mention the dubious and questionable “Syrian Observatory for Human Rights” based in London. A one-man Muslim Brotherhood-show based in the heart of London. Being a Londoner, we would truly be scared.

It is also a fact that there are armed gangs and religious fanatics within Syria and that the so-called “Free Syrian Army” (FSA) should be not celebrated as liberators and “peace-bringers”, but should be viewed as what their armed and violent members are:

They are partly a bunch of renegades who want profit from the situation within Syria and hope to gain more power in future. Some also rape and kill women. They choose their victims also by their religion, ethnics or just by their opinions. There is no question about their targeting on civilians as also, of course, on Syrian soldiers, security forces and police men.

This “Free Syrian Army” is a mix of different interests and criminal as also religious motivations. There are also “normal” criminal people who take their chance to gain more power or to profit through the actual situation and lawless districts within some areas of Syrian cities.

That they are also responsible for acts of sabotage is not really far-fetched, but somehow logical. It applies not only gas and oil pipelines but also bridges and access roads.

This new explosions on the gas pipeline near the Syrian town of al-Rastan are responsible for the upcoming cuts – the electricity could be off for a longer time now.

The Arab League (AL) observers were led to this place near al-Rastan to get a picture of these acts of terror by those Western-backed “rebels” in Syria.

It is not clear what will come out in the end by this observer mission in Syria. We have to wait for a final result of the observers, of course. Or maybe the members of this Arab League (AL) observer mission are withdrawn after the next weekend and the upcoming meeting of the Arab League and Arab Parliament within the Egyptian capital Cairo.

Also the head of this observer mission, al-Dabi, will be a part of this meeting in Cairo. Hopefully a positive meeting of the Arab League and Arab Parliament – without violence next door as it happened the last time there.

The fact is that the West continuously rails against the Syrian government, as in past years already. The propaganda war against the Syrian government and president Bashar al-Assad is still going at full speed. The final question remains:

Will the West dare the last step against Syria or not.
