Most brutal torture and murder video

by John Mak January 2, 2013

If you are faint at heart, don't click through to watch this video. In this video, Syrian government troops round up a group of about 5 men. The men are huddled into a corner with their shirts pulled over their heads and their hands handcuffed behind them. They taunt and yell at the men for a while. They pose and take "funny" pictures and wave at the videographer. But what happnes next is horrific beyond description.

60,000 have been murdered

by John Mak January 2, 2013

As the two year anniversary of the Syrian revolution approaches, well over 60,000 Syrians have been killed at the hands of their very own government. A government that is supposed to be protecting them. Meanwhile, the entirety of the world watches, debates, discusses, and doesn't decide on anything.

Women, young and old, are being systematically raped. Children are being tortured, brutalized, and killed. Men of all ages are being detained, tortured, raped, poked, proded, and dismembered. No one is safe from this brutal regime.

As the second year anniversary approaches, we pray that this nightmare ends soon. We pray that world leaders will stop hitching their wagons to the Assad train. We pray that wisdom, justice, and humanity will prevail. 

It's time to start rebuilding Syria.

No doubts: Perpetrators of Houla massacre were Assad's military forces

by John Mak May 28, 2012

Assad's spin machine is attempting to blame the Houla Massacre on the freedom-loving demonstrators, but eye witness acounts from children survivors of the Houla Massacre have surfaced, including video interviews on Youtube, describing Assad's military and para-military forces as the perpetrators of the Houla Massacre. An older female survivor tells the same story of Assad's military going home to home and killing everything in sight. The two children survived by playing dead. The female child that survived was connected to a chest tube and stabbed in the chest as she gave her Youtube interview. The little boy that survived smeared blood on himself and played dead.

Daycare Massacre in Houle

by John Mak May 26, 2012

We thought it wouldn't and couldn't happen in the era of Youtube, Facebook, and Twitter. But the Assad regime is hellbent on broadcasting their brutal massacres to the world. Right under the UN Observers noses. Thumbing their noses and raising a fat middle finger to the world.

Female Detainee Tells about Prison Torture in Syria

by John Mak March 24, 2012

A letter written with the blood and tears of a female detainee in Syria's prison, translated by Sumayya...

We plead with the world, rescue us immediately.

How many letters have we written? Written with our groans and our tears…

We’ve sent them with the breeze, in hopes that they’d reach someone who would listen to them…

But we were unable to send our letters on paper, and so we sufficed to send our groans…

And we shrieked into the darkness of the night…

Nightmare Escape from Syria

by Sana March 14, 2012

My parents fled Syria in 1980 to escape the prevalent political persecution at the time. Their first stop as fugitives was to Jordan, where they lived in a three-bedroom apartment with two other families. Despite the instability and uncertainty in their lives, they were consumed with a profound sense of gratitude to be alive. While their circumstances were difficult, my mother often reminisces about her days in Jordan with a smile. She remembers the graciousness of her friends and the undeniable unity she felt with other Syrians who had fled from their homeland. When my mother became pregnant with me, my parents moved to Saudi Arabia where my father had found a job. For the first time since their escape, my parents no longer had to worry about affording basic necessities such as food and clothes.

Women Raped in Syria, Husband forced to watch

by John Mak March 14, 2012

A new torture and humiliation tactic being reported by Syrians, is that the women would be gang raped and the husband would be forced to watch. If he tries to look away or close his eyes, he gets beaten. This has been reported by many who have escaped. Another similar method is torturing children in front of their parents and forcing them to watch. Including, burning the children alive. As the world watches and debates.
