Syd Walker, an Australian anti-Israel activist, has stated that Israel is responsible for the civil unrest in Syria, although he has failed to provide any basis for this charge (Read here.) Walker writes:
To understand why President Assad of Syria is under sustained attack, read this from 2010.
He then links to an AP article describing a meeting between Assad and Hugo Chavez during which Chavez accused Israel of committing genocide. According to Walker, the popular uprising of Syrians -- their belated Arab Spring which is now being suppressed in the most brutal manner by the Syrian regime with the help of their Iranian allies -- is nothing more than an Israeli attack on Assad for his anti-Zionism.
What a pathetic defense of real Syrian crimes against humanity in the name of promoting a belief in illusory Israeli ones!
