In the first two weeks of Ramadan, 1,262 Syrians were killed. The news didn’t make headlines and people were not agitated. This makes us wonder if what’s happening in Cairo killed the Syrian revolution or if the latter is fading into the background like what happened with Iraq after explosions that kill hundreds every day became normal.
Syria is not equal to Egypt
This development [in Egypt] will place Syria in the shadows, and it will grant Bashar al-Assad’s regime and his allies the opportunity to commit more genocide crimes in the dark.Abdulrahman al-Rashed
The truth is there is a huge difference between the two cases. No one can deny that some Egyptians see that the current Egyptian opposition, that is the Muslim Brotherhood, has a cause and popular support. Those who reject the Brotherhood also have a cause and popular support. We are confronting a struggle in Egypt. But the struggle in Egypt is political above all, while in Syria there is a criminal regime which is popularly hated and which has deliberately committed murders on a daily basis on an unprecedented scale.
