“Statement by a group of Iranian writers and left political activists on the situation in Syria”

2013 September 12

01 Sept 2013
Reported by: Radio Koocheh

104 Iranian writers and left political activists issued an anti-war statement in which they condemned the crimes against humanity of the Bashar Asad’s regime in Syria, and the interventions of the Islamic Government of Iran and Lebanon’s Hezbollah party, as well as the supports of the United Arab Emirates and Qatar from the killings and mascaras done by the extremist groups of Qaeda, Nosra and the Islamists; while they also strongly condemned any plans by the U.S and its supporters, for the military interventions in Syria.
The full statement, a copy of which has been provided for the Radio Koocheh; is as followings:
“Finally, after thirty one months of war and conflicts between the opposition forces and the supporters of Bashar Asad’s regime, which together with the interventions of other countries marked one of the bloodiest pages of the Middle-East history; what was feared of is about to happen. The United States’ announcement on military attack to Syria, after two years of bloody conflicts between the two parties and the weakening of the people and the opposition groups; is the completion of a scenario which the west had planned from the start.
The government of the United States and its supporters, with their excuse that there are no peaceful options to end the conflicts – such as Bashar Asad and the Baath party giving up the power – announced that military intervention is the only option left. This is while the goal of this attack, also as announced; is not even the removal of Asad’s government but only to give him and the Islamic Republic of Iran a lesson.
On one hand “Syria’s National Council Unison“ and the opposition parties side by side “the – Liberation Army” with the aids of the United States and its western supporters; have gone into the streets armed with weapons. On the other, the Baath Party and Syria’s army supported by Iran’s Ghods Militia, Lebanon’s Hezbolah and “Shabiha” back army have poured fire on the innocent and unarmed people.
There is no doubt that without the supports and the direct interventions of the west, as well as those of the Islamic Republic of Iran and Russia; this war and the resulted conflicts could not have lasted for so long, and more than a hundred and thirty thousand civilians would not have been killed.
The existing situation in Syria worsened when Qaeda, Wahabis, the Salafis and Nosra united with the opposition forces backed by the West, the United Arab Emirates and Qatar. The start of the killings of the unarmed generations of Kurds, Ashouris, Nosairits (Alawites) and Turkman by these reactionary elements, forced some of the parties united with “Syria’s National Council” to leave this Council and unite with Asad’s loyalists.

The policies and interventions of the west caused the peoples’ forces such as “the National Committee for democratic change” (a coalition consisted of thirteen left parties) to lose their initiative, and therefore the mass struggle against Bashar Asad’s regime to turn into an arena for the attacks of the anti-revolutionary forces. This situation opens the way for a totalitarian and anti-humanitarian regime scenario, as seen earlier in Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya. Now the use of chemical weapons by Bashar Asad’s regime; is an excuse for the armed presence of the United States and its supporters in Syria even before the vote of the Security Council.
The main stream Medias have played an important role in showing an upside down picture of what has been actually happening in Syria. They have for instance; magnified Syria’s National Council as the only anti-government group, and they have therefore caused the left opposition parties in “the National Committee Unison” to be ignored. They have also portrayed any opposition with the western intervention and the so called humanitarian interventions of the United States in Syria; as an act of co-operation with Asad’s regime. These Medias have portrayed the issue of Syria as a civilian war, which leaves no option for an end to it but the intervention of the United States and its supporters. They have beaten on the war drums from the start!

The people of Syria and their children are killed every day, the Christians, Muslims and Kurds are massacred, and the Human Rights organization is only working to prove the need for the western armed interventions. The model which has been portrayed before this so-called humanitarian intervention, is Iraq the country which after a decade of the United States, Britain and NATO’s presence is witnessing the massacred of the innocent people, growth of insecurity, destruction of the economic structure, growth of Islamic terrorism, the continuation of massacred of Iraqi Christians, vagrancy of the people, the destruction of the urban and rural structures, racial wars and the lack of constancy.
The face of Iraq is still bloody and this is the version presented by the west announcing that the armed intervention was the only option remaining to free the people of Iraq from the dictatorships of Saddam and his Baath Party. The western Media then also had a vital role in the creation of the scenario, through supporting the United States policies and portraying an upside-down view of the truth about the situation in Iraq.
We the Iranian writers and left political activists, in support of the people of Syria and in line with their revolution:
Strongly condemn the inhumane policies of the Bashar Asad’s regime and the Baath party, and the killings of the defenseless people in Syria.
Strongly condemn the supporting acts of the Islamic dictatorial Regime of Iran of Bashar Asad’s regime in Syria.
Strongly condemn the massacres of the Kurds, Turkmen, Assyrians and Alavies of Syria by the Extremists Islamists of Qaeda, Salafis, Wahabis and Nosra.
Strongly condemn the initiation of war, and any sort of armed presence and intervention of the United States of America and its NATO supporters in Syria.
We the Iranian writers and left political activists; believe that the only solution to the current critical situation in Syria and putting an end to this human disaster, is to wholly defend and support a legitimate opposition group defending the rights of the Syrian people. Such opposition, under any name; must clearly separate its position from the Islamist forces on one hand, and the interventionist governments on the other. It should also recognize the rights of the minority religions and races, and commit to choose the best solution for the benefits of the Syrian people.
This is the only solution to end the massacres of the people and achieving constancy in Syria, as well as ending the dictatorship of the Baath Party, preventing another human disaster in the region; and therefore to help the peoples’ revolution in Syria.
