@Charles_Lister   Making refugees destroy their own homes = utterly revolting. Although it’s clearly strained by the « host » burden, #Lebanon should be ashamed. Recent Lebanese security officials I’ve spoken to made it clear: #Syria‘s refugees *will* be leaving #Lebanon, one way or another.

– Le tourisme en Syrie, vecteur de propagande (2/3) : un circuit pour la mémoire. Le circuit proposé par l’agence Clio témoigne malgré lui des crimes de guerre et crimes contre l’humanité commis notamment par le régime de Bachar Al-Assad.

Catherine Coquio Faire détruire des posts fb pour stopper la circulation virale internationale d’images d’un rite funéraire, empêcher de se joindre au deuil d’une icône populaire de la révolution syrienne : derniers services dans la panoplie du négationnisme pro-assad, dont on a vu il y a peu qu’elle passait aussi par de nouveaux réseaux académiques. Plusieurs de mes amis syriens ont vu leurs posts relatifs à Abdel Basset détruits hier et avant hier. Celui ci a toujours fait peur au régime, à cause de son immense popularité d’enfant de famille pauvre devenu footballeur puis chanteur en même temps que combattant aux pieds nus cheveux longs. Avoir exterminé cette famille ne suffit pas. Comme toujours il faut tuer deux fois.
