Events in Turkey from the last week or two are still just unrest and not an uprising but social media is being applied in a crafty way, the agenda is not regime change but rather to create a need for a distraction by the government, and Syria is the most likely distraction.
This would likely create a civil war in turkey which would attract Muslims from abroad wishing to Free Turkey from NATO
Both Mursi and Erdogan are uncompromising
Regarding Egypt breaking off relations with Syria, Mursi is following a script from his paymasters, he had no choice, and neither Neither Iran nor Russia have reacted

June 10, 2013
Press TV has conducted an interview with Michel Chossudovsky, Center for Research on Globalization, Montreal, on the back of UN concern for the Syrian war spilling over into other countries.
The following is an approximate transcript of the interview.
Press TV: The UN is warning of an explosion in the Middle East if the war on Syria continues. The question is what has the UN itself done to prevent the war from exacerbating?
Chossudovsky: First of all, that statement was made by the head of the United Nations High Commission for Refugees. And the statement says that if the fighting doesn’t stop… the fighting is going to stop because the terrorists have been defeated
And essentially if Western powers put a moratorium on their support to these al-Qaeda affiliated rebels, the war is over – at least, the ground war is over. Recent developments suggest and confirm that the country is under the control of the Syrian government. The rebel forces have been defeated in al-Qusayr and they’ve also been defeated in other parts of the country.
The question of humanitarian aid has to be, from my standpoint, addressed because, who are the protagonists for humanitarian aid, so-called humanitarian aid? Precisely the countries, which supported these rebel terrorists.
And I think what we should be raising at this stage is that it is well established that this war was waged by the United States, NATO and Israel with the support of the [Persian] Gulf states Qatar and Saudi Arabia in particular and that under international law what is now required is war reparations.
So I would say let us put the humanitarian dimension aside and focus on the billions and billions of dollars of war reparations, which are due to the Syrian government as a result of the legal support of these terrorist formations in Syria, which constitute essentially the ground forces – the foot soldiers of the Western military alliance.
Press TV: The recent victory in Qusayr and the recent revelation that Israeli-made weapons were seized from Syrian insurgents – What impact will this have on the dynamics of the conflict?
Chossudovsky: We’ve known from day one that Israel has supported al-Qaeda. And we also know that Israel has channeled weapons and logistic support to the rebels in the areas surrounding the occupied areas of the Golan Heights and in fact Israel even established a hospital facility for the al-Qaeda rebels and was bussing them back and forth, taking the wounded to the hospital and then sending them back to the war theatre.
Israel was involved in acts of aggression against a sovereign state together with NATO, particularly Turkey, Britain, France, the United States. French and British Special Forces, SAS forces, MI6 and CIA agents were involved – We know it because it’s documented. Who is training the rebels in chemical weapons? The Western military alliance.
Minister Laurent Fabius of France comes out – and it’s the typical sort of weapons of mass destruction saga accusing the government of using chemical weapons against civilians when in fact CNN confirms that Western forces are training the rebels in the use of chemical weapons; when the Turkish police arrests al-Qaeda rebels – it just happened a week or so ago.
So we know that all this is fabrications whereby the Western military alliance is accusing the government of committing atrocities, which they themselves have committed.
What we must now tackle at an intentional level is war reparations. The war is over unless of course the West decides to continue this war e.g. with a no-fly zone. That would be an extremely dangerous option at this stage because Syria has an advanced air defense system.
The S-300 is in place; it has been building up over the past 18 months; there are other elements of air defense; and it would be very unwise for the Western military alliance to impose a no-fly zone, which would immediately be subject to some kind of response.
So that is the background. This war has reached a point of transition if there is no intervention on the part of the Western military alliance, the war is over.

In the course of its investigation into the Reyhanlı bombings (11 May 2013), the Turkish police conducted on Monday, 27 May 2013, a series of raids on the homes of Al-Nusra Front militants in Adana and Mersin. 12 suspects were arrested.
2 kg of sarin gas were found.
The Al-Nusra Front is the Levantine branch of Al-Qaida. The militants were preparing to use the sarin gas inside both Turkey and Syria. Sarin gas is a chemical weapon banned by the United Nations in 1991.
This discovery comes as the French daily Le Monde, in its edition dated May 28, published a five-part report by Jean-Philippe Rémy and Laurent Van Der Stockton “certifying” the use of gas by the Army Syrian Arab against the “rebellion” in Jobar (district of Damascus).
The report is a carbon copy of the one carried out in Homs, more than one year ago by the same newspaper, which was translated into the main European languages and published by all major outlets in NATO member states. The report contains several absurdities: journalists describe a chemical warfare at the heart of the capital supposed to affect only “opponents“; the people show diverse symptoms, but no convulsions; and photos illustrating the first installment point to an eye treatment which is incongruous with for poison gas (which penetrates the skin and is not a tear gas). This piece of propaganda was disseminated and widely relayed on the eve of the lifting of the EU embargo on sending weapons to armed groups in Syria.

Breaking news! CNN reports Obama is set to announce Syria has crossed the red line for military intervention by using chemical weapons to kill hundreds of civilians in Syria.
Details are just coming in but the news means the United States will now be launching military action against Syria as Obama has previously promised the use of Chemical weapons in Syria would be a “game changing” red line.
According the the reports from US intelligence officials given just moments ago to congress in a secret closed door meeting, the Syria government has been using Sarin gas.

After concluding that the Syrian government has used chemical weapons against the country’s insurgency, thus crossing a ‘red line,’ the Obama administration has decided to start sending arms to anti-Assad rebels for the first time, officials say.
Editor’s note: be sure to check out our articles showing evidence of the U.S. aiding the arming of Syrian rebels and even sending arms to Syrian rebels as early as June last year
An internal memorandum circulating within the Obama administration has assessed that chemical weapons, most likely the nerve gas sarin, were used multiple times in battle against the Syrian rebels.
The “intelligence community assesses that the Assad regime has used chemical weapons on a small scale against the opposition multiple times in the last year,” according to that memo, as cited by The New York Times.
President Obama has authorized to release of at least some US arms for Syria’s rebels as part of new military and political aid measures, according to a source who spoke with Reuters.
White House officials speculated over evidence that nerve gas had been used as of April, but that evidence is now being called “definitive” – with Congressional sources describing the conclusion as crossing the “red line” for US military intervention or backing as previously defined by the president.
“The president has made a decision about providing more support to the opposition, that will involve providing direct support to the (Supreme Military Council), that includes military support,” Deputy National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes told reporters on a conference call on Thursday.
“This is going to be different in both scope and scale in terms of what we are providing to the SMC than what we have provided before,” he adds.
According to officials who spoke with the Wall Street Journal on Thursday, the US military is currently considering a proposal for arming factions of the Syrian insurgency – as well as establishing a limited no-fly zone over the country to be enforced from nearby Jordanian territory.
That no-fly zone could stretch for up to 25 miles into Syrian territory, and would be set up in a bid to train and equip rebel forces and protect refugees, officials said.

Sad news from the Syrian capital Damascus. At least 14 people have been killed by two bomb attacks carried out by the foreign-backed militants and jihadists, often called “Free Syrian Army” (FSA) or “democratic innocent people just defending themselves” by Western mass media. So according to the facts on ground in Syria since over two years, some might wish these European states some of these “democratic freedom-lovers” due the situation that their media and politicians love these militants so much.
The two bomb attacks in the Syrian capital Damascus were carried out near a police station after other explosive devices blew off near the known Marjeh Square in the central area of the Syrian capital Damascus. According to the Syrian Al-Ikhbariya television station, not only (at least) 14 people died due to the next terrorist attack in the Syrian capital, but also some 31 innocent Syrians were injured in this incident today.
Although there is so far no group which has claimed the responsibility for this terrorist attack in the capital of Syria, it seems logical that the foreign-backed militants and jihadists are behind such acts of pure terrorism against the innocent citizens of the Syrian capital. Thus, that the Syrian television channel Al-Ikhbariya has soon blamed the US-backed terrorists within Syria is not very far fetched, but logical.
After all the successful operations of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in recent weeks, for example in al-Qusayr and the countryside of al-Qusayr near the border to Lebanon and the recent successful operations in the largest Syrian city Aleppo and the northern region of Syria, these next car bombs and acts of terror against the Syrian citizens of the capital Damascus can be taken as a cruel revenge and a last attempt of these foreign-backed militants and Islamists to spread fear in the capital. It is possible that these armed thugs wanted to give a sign that they are still able to carry out such horrible attacks against civilians in the capital of Syria.
While this horrible sign by these uneducated thugs and al-Qaeda fanatics is sure bad in terms of that there is not yet a real level of security implemented by the Syrian government even in the capital of the country, this cruel sign just boosts the morale of the resistance against this sectarian terrorism and the proxy war by foreign nations, including Arab traitors in Jordan, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia and Qatar, who are just working hand in hand with the Israeli regime and the American regime of terrorism, covered by mass media and politicians as the “world police” and “suppliers of democracy”. My ass.
Already some days ago, on June 8, at least eight people were killed in a car bomb blast in Al-Adawiya neighborhood of city of Homs. According to the reports, also some innocent Syrians were injured in this blast.
As mentioned, these recent horrible acts of terrorism came as the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) took control of the last militant bastion near the strategic town of al-Qusayr (al-Qusayyr) also in the province of the Syrian city of Homs and located near the Syrian border to Lebanon.

Assad didn’t just give away the Golan Heights, they were taken by force before he was 1 and a half years old. Syria did re-take 30% of the Golan Heights in Yom Kippur and that was under the direction of Assad’s father his 3 year in office. And Again the UK France and America all backed Israel. The annexing was in 1981 many other things happening those years like the Iran Iraq War the post Iranian revolution, Reagan /Bush Sr in the White House etc Assad became president in 2000 WAY after these problems like Golan had been established.. more
Think fighting Assad can be anti-Israel too just cause you want it to be? You’re a pawn you’re following Israel policy papers which even stated that they could get a bunch of you pawns to act exactly how you’re acting.

Russia’s Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said on Tuesday that Moscow has a contract for the delivery of S-300 missiles (in picture) to Syria and sees the deal as a key deterrent against foreign invasion in that country. File photo
In an angry reaction to the lifting of a European Union (EU) embargo on arms for Syrian rebels, Russia has reaffirmed plans to supply advanced air defence missiles to the Syrian government forces.
Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov accused the EU of “throwing fuel on the fire” by letting its Syria arms embargo expire.
Mr. Ryabkov told an urgently called press conference on Tuesday that Russia would not scrap its contract to supply Syria with S-300 long-range air defence systems despite “signals” from Western capitals.
“We see no reason to review our stance,” he said, adding S-300 would be useful in deterring “hotheads” from internationalising the conflict in Syria.
Earlier, an official had said Moscow would refrain from supplying S-300 to Syria. Mr. Ryabkov stressed that Moscow was “disappointed” by the EU decision, which “harmed” the prospects of an international peace conference jointly proposed by Russia and the U.S.

The EU has agreed to lift the Syrian arms embargo.The UK and France led the effort which has now opened the door to lethal aid flowing into the hands of the Syrian rebels. The UK aid agency Oxfam has warned of “devastating consequences” if more arms are sent into Syria. Anti-war activist Richard Becker says the arms embargo never stopped western supporters of the opposition. And Soraya Sepahpour-Ulrich, an independent researcher and writer, says Washington is not entirely sincere when it calls for peace talks.

Head of Hezbollah Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah says the Lebanese resistance movement will continue to support the Syrian government against U-S-backed extremism. During a celebration to mark the 13th anniversary of the withdrawal of Israeli occupation forces from Lebanon, the leader of the resistance also gave clear reasons as to why Hezbollah is fighting alongside the Syrian Army in the battle of Qusayr. Nasrallah considered Hezbollah’s contribution as an action to protect Lebanon and Syria with their various sects. The venue of the event was filled with loud cheers when Sayyed Nasrallah promised a victory against extremists like the victories of 2000 and 2006 against Israel.

The daughter of Qatari ruler Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani has censured Doha’s support for the militants in Syria.
In a message she posted on Twitter, Sheikha Hind bint Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani stated that the backing of the militants was a ‘scandal in the history of Qatar.’
She also denounced the atrocities committed by the militants and said the armed groups had committed crimes against the Syrian people – an apparent reference to a gruesome video recently published on the Internet.
The video shows a cannibal militant in Syria cutting an organ of a Syrian soldier out of his chest and biting into it.
The Qatari princess also slammed the intervention of militants from Saudi Arabia in Syria and their ‘execution of Syrian citizens.’
Turmoil has gripped Syria since March 2011, and many people, including large numbers of Syrian security forces, have been killed in the unrest.
Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said on May 18 that militants from 29 different countries were fighting against the government in different parts of the country.
In January, Prince Turki al-Faisal, former Saudi spy chief, called for sending heavy weaponry to the militants in Syria.

At least 28 people were killed and 250 wounded in weeklong clashes between Sunni and Alawite Muslims in Tripoli, Lebanon, according to security officials. The violence is another sign of the Syrian conflict spilling over to Lebanon.
Last night, four Sunnis and one Alawite died in clashes, the Daily Star reported. The casualties raised this week’s death toll to 28.
Fierce fighting has raged in Tripoli since last Sunday, with assailants firing rocket-propelled grenades, mortars and machine guns. The violence is seen as a spillover from the recently intensified fighting between rebels and government forces in Qusayr, Syria, near the border with Lebanon.
Most of the clashes in Tripoli were between residents of the Sunni-majority Bab el-Tebbaneh district and the Alawite-majority Jabal Mohsen district. A third party in the conflict is the Lebanese Army, which has so far failed to quell the unrest.
Although the clashes subsided in the morning, the area is still reportedly controlled by snipers.
The week-long conflict brought life to a halt in Tripoli, home to 500,000 residents, with schools and shops closed because of the violence.
This is not the first time Tripoli has witnessed an outbreak of violence between Sunnis supporting the Syrian rebels and pro-regime Alawites, the religious branch of Shia Islam to which Syrian President Bashar Assad belongs. The Lebanese Army deployed in the city last October to broker a ceasefire.

Having overthrown the Governments in Iraq in 2003 and Libya in 2011, the U.S. government has sought to topple the Syrian government during the past two years. The CIA has been the coordinating agency for massive weapons shipments from Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey to armed groups fighting to topple the Syrian government.
The conflict in Syria that began more than two years ago was fueled by a wide range of grievances, some legitimate, some reactionary. But the armed rebellion inside the country is today inextricably bound to imperialism and the most reactionary regimes in the Arab world. Its aim is to destroy a secular, nationalist government that U.S. leaders view as an obstacle to their goal of dominating the entire Middle East.
The United States, Britain, France, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar have been funneling vast quantities of arms, money and supplies to the Syrian opposition, and training thousands of anti-government fighters in Turkey, Jordan and elsewhere. On May 5, Israel heavily bombed an area close to the capital, Damascus.
Israeli air strikes on May 5 near Damascus (right)
Harsh economic sanctions have been imposed on Syria. The United States and its allies have waged a worldwide campaign to isolate and demonize the Syrian government.
Outside support has sustained the opposition, but not brought it victory. Thus, the leaders of the U.S.-organized “National Coalition of Opposition and Revolutionary Forces” and the “Free Syrian Army” have been making repeated and urgent appeals for more direct imperialist intervention, including an air war against their own country. Those appeals have become even more urgent due to losses suffered by the splintered opposition forces in recent weeks.
“Friends of Syria”: another face of imperialism
Stepping up the imperialist-led campaign, on May 22, the so-called “Friends of Syria” met in Amman, Jordan. Led by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, the other “Friends” at the meeting were the foreign ministers of Britain, France, Germany, Italy, Turkey, Egypt, Jordan, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar and Saudi Arabia.
The open aim of the “Friends” is the overthrow of existing government in Syria. Its concluding statement speaks of “supporting the legitimate rights of the Syrian people” and “a new Syrian constitution with equal rights for all.”
This supposed concern for “human rights” in Syria is nothing but the crassest cynicism.
Saudi Arabia, Qatar, UAE and Jordan are all police-state, absolute monarchies, sustained in power by U.S. support. Saudi Arabia has never had an election, women are forbidden to drive cars and public beheadings are a frequent occurrence. Britain and France are the former colonizing powers in the region, striving to retain their influence today. Germany and Italy shared in the colonial division of Africa; half the population of Libya died under Italian rule during World War II. Turkey has long repressed the Kurdish population inside its borders, as well as unions, leftist parties and other progressive organizations. The Egyptian government is suppressing the opposition as it seeks to consolidate its power.
As the dominant world power over the past 70 years, the United States has carried out genocidal wars from Korea to Vietnam to Iraq, leaving tens of millions dead, wounded and displaced. In addition, U.S. military and intelligence forces have intervened hundreds of times in countries around the world, and today the United States maintains more than 900 military bases on every continent. Death by U.S. drone is today a regular and terrorizing feature of life for people in Pakistan, Afghanistan and Yemen.
The “Friends” are in reality a criminal gang who have no concern whatsoever for the interests of the people of Syria – or any people anywhere, for that matter.
Say no to U.S./NATO and Israeli intervention
An international peace conference on Syria has been jointly proposed by Russia and the United States, and is tentatively set to take place in Geneva, Switzerland, in June. It is not clear yet whether it will actually take place.
Regarding the proposed conference, the “Friends of Syria” statement ended by threatening, “[U]ntil such a time as the Geneva meeting produces a transitional government, they [the “Friends”] will further increase their support for the opposition and take all other steps as necessary.” By “transitional government,” the “Friends” mean one absent the present leadership. In other words, until there is “regime change,” they will escalate the war.
The anti-war movement in the United States has a duty to unequivocally oppose all forms of intervention by the United States, the other imperialists and their clients, and to support the right of the Syrian people to determine their own future, free from imperialist intervention.

People gather at the site of a rocket attack in Beirut, Lebanon, May 26, 2013.
Two rockets have hit the southern district of Zahyieh in Lebanon’s capital, Beirut, Press TV reports.
Several people were wounded in the incident that took place on Sunday, according to Lebanese security sources. Some vehicles and homes were also damaged.
The security sources said 107-mm rockets were used in the attack.
There has been no claim of responsibility for the rocket attack so far.
Lebanon’s caretaker Interior Minister Marwan Charbel, who visited at the site of the rocket attack, said it was an “act of sabotage.”
“The rockets were fired from a secluded area, southeast of the scene of the incident,” he stated.
“I believe this was an act of sabotage,” Charbel added, when asked about the motive for the attack. “I hope what is happening in Syria will not happen in Lebanon.”
The rocket incident in Beirut comes amid recent clashes between supporters and opponents of the Syrian government in Lebanon’s northern city of Tripoli, which have led to the death of more than two dozen people.
