Syrian opposition moves to Amman - or Khaddam's latest fantasy?

Highly respected gossip-rag As-Siyassah reports that "its sources" are saying Syria's opposition figures are moving to Jordan and Lebanon.

So is this really happening? And can we expect announcements from the newly 'free' opposition leaders in the next few days. I predict not.

Why not?

As-Siyassah. That's reason enough. It publishes wish-lists and fantasies as fact. Rarely, if ever, does it retract its mistakes. And it can publish entire news stories without quoting a single named source. It has all the journalistic credence of Hello magazine. So, no, I doubt we'll be seeing Mohammed Habash in Books@Cafe on Jebl Amman anytime soon.

But there is a second reason - As-Siyassah hints that their 'source' might be Khaddam. Is it? And if so, why wouldn't Khaddam go public - it's not like he's scared of doing that.

Anyway, if they are to be believed, former government members are leaving Damascus to ignite a war - "two explosions for every explosion and two assassinations for every assassination," we are told.

I wonder if the recent fabrication about training and providing arms to the Palestanians is a preload to providing a base to the Syrian opposition to attack Syria under Arab cover ,if that is the case i call on Syria to fight back the traiters in Jordan.

الامن السوري يعتقل احوازيين مقيمين في دمشق

علم مكتبنا ان الامن السياسي السوري اعتقل صباح الخميس الحادي عشر من الشهر الجاري عددا من الأحوازيين المقيمين في دمشق دون ان يعلن عن سبب اعتقال هؤلاء الأشخاص . و أكدت المصادر ان من بين المعتقلين 1- طاهر علي مزرعة 2- جمال عبيداوي 3- موسى سواري 4- وعيسى الموسوي وآخرون.

يذكران عددا من المعتقلين هم طلاب في جامعة دمشق وقد سبق اعتقالهم في مايو آيار من العام الماضي وأفرج عنهم بعد تدخل منظمات حقوق الإنسان السورية والعربية والمفوضية العليا لشؤون اللاجئين في دمشق حيث يحضى بعض المعتقلين بحمايتها.

هذا وقد ناشد كاظم حمد الفرحاني الناطق باسم حزب النهضة العربي الأحوازي دمشق بالإفراج عن المعتقلين . مؤكدا على حسن التعامل الأخوي الذي لقيه الأحوازيون على الدوام من قبل السلطات السورية مشيدا بالمواقف القومية السورية من القضية الأحوازية مذكرا بان الجامعة السورية تعد الجامعة العربية الوحيدة التي ماتزال أبوابها مفتوحة أمام الطلبة الأحوازيين الذي حرموا من التعلم بلغتهم العربية في ظل سلطات الاغتصاب الفارسي .
