It doesn’t pay off to be a peeping tom in Syrian.  This poor guy seems to be shot for filming a scene of complete horror nearby. The sounds emanating from houses is incredibly distressing and we need to pay attention to Syria now. If there ever was proof the Jan ArabSpring was a false start this is horrific evidence.

In response to Assad’s speech, the streets of Hama produced a dabke (line dance and song) to voice their anger and revolutionary spirit.  The singer “Ibrahim Qashoush” was reported to be killed in Hama on 3 July 2011 by regime. Sad news indeed..  This hopefully be the last dance for Bashar Al-Assad. http://blog.foreignpolicy.com/posts/2011/07/08/is_this_the_anthem_for_the_syrian_revolution

According to my sources the Syrian Press attache to the Syrian Embassy of the United States has left his job in the last few hours. This surprising news comes after Hilary Clinton finally lays down the law and tells Assad hes “not indispensable.” We shall see in the next coming hours if stepping down of the Syrian Press representative is a turning point. These are last few tweets from  http://twitter.com/#!/USEmbassySyria (Syrian tweeter feed from their Embassy in the US) But doesn’t reveal too much in indicating more resignations (um defections anyone?)
