    Tomorrow, October 9, marks the 50th anniversary of the execution of Che Guevara in Bolivia. Interestingly, the postal service in the south of Irteland have brought out a one-euro stamp with the iconic picture of Che to mark the 50th anniversary:

    October 5, meanwhile, marked the 40th anniversary of the murder of Seamus Costello, a kind of Irish Che. At the time of his murder, Seamus was president of the Bray trade union council and chief-of-staff of an armed workers’ organisation.

    Justifying the regime’s genocide being carried out against the Syrian people, New Zealand’s little Lord Haw Haws continue to keep parroting the regime’s propaganda that the Syrian war is a Western invasion, and not a civil war. The regime’s own soldiers put lie to this bullshit.

    Q: How do you reconcile your identity as a Druze, a Syrian and a Suwayda resident?

    We in Suwayda follow the noble slogan raised by the leader of the Great Syrian Revolution in 1925, Sultan Pasha al-Atrash: “Religion is for God, the homeland is for all.”

    We do not choose sectarianism but the war in Syria has forced us to lean in that direction on some matters.

    I assure you, if the war in Syria had been with an external foe, you would see the people of Suwayda at the forefront, as was the case in the past. But since it’s a civil, sectarian war, we’re staying out of it.

    Q: You described the war as sectarian. Can you elaborate?

    Yes, it certainly is, and it’s not only [my] feelings—it’s a tangible reality. I saw it clearly while taking part in combat operations, especially when I was in Aleppo.
