“Kill us!” cried a Syrian woman carrying a baby in her lap, as dozens of gendarmerie forces and police were passing by. “Get rid of us,” she shouted.

Police fired tear gas on stone-throwing Syrian refugees who were protesting at the lack of food and water at camps on the border with their conflict-ravaged homeland.

 
 

A Turkish official said demonstrations erupted at two of the 10 camps set up along the border which shelter about 40,000 Syrians who have fled the escalating violence at home.

“The clashes were some of the most violent of recent months,” the official said.

The unrest flared after Syrian rebel fighters seized a nearby border post after hours of fighting during the night, the third now held held by the anti-regime militants.

“We have had no food for three days,” said a young Syrian boy standing outside the container city of Kilis, which is home to some 15,000 people who have taken refuge from President Bashar al-Assad’s bloody crackdown.

“We have no water. They give us cards for shopping but we need money, we need weapons to take to our fellow fighters,” said Ahmet Abbas.

The Kilis camp lies nearby the Oncupinar border crossing which faces the Al-Salama outpost on the Syrian side, the latest to be seized by the rebels.

“Kill us!” cried a Syrian woman carrying a baby in her lap, as dozens of gendarmerie forces and police were passing by. “Get rid of us,” she shouted.

Refugees at the Kilis camp said two demonstrators has been killed but the Turkish official said there was no confirmation of any deaths, although one Turkish policeman was injured.

“After the clashes, many refugees gathered outside the camp, and some were leaving Turkey in their cars, heading back toward the Syrian side of the border.”

    “we need weapons to take to our fellow fighters,” said Ahmet Abbas.”

    sounds like a bunch of banditos.

    maybe when the israelis don’t need their services in the mideast any more, they’ll ship them off to mexico to work for the jewish mafia’s mexican drug cartels. they would probably be good at chopping heads off recalcitrant leftists and peasants who refused to pay protection money.

    It doesn’t matter how much propaganda you and who=me post on here because most of us know there is a massive propaganda war going on so we don’t believe half of it or perhaps 99% of it. It’s a shame you are devaluing deLiberation with you endless propganda feed though.

      “It’s a shame you are devaluing deLiberation with you endless propganda feed though.”

      ls appears to be using the same tactics as azz use in pro-palestine movements to gain control. only instead of rooting out the so-called “anti-semites” in the movement as a tactic to remove those not in “the club”, ls is trying to get alternate views from hers removed from deliberation. change “propaganda” to “anti-semitism” in ls’s comment and the similarity becomes obvious. it’s an attempt at censoring opposing views and persuading the site to to censor in “its own interest” those views. her objection is not to posting articles, but to posting articles which disagreed with her pov, and to which she had no information she could counter with, that would not be immediately exposed as jp/zionist propaganda.

      • who_me July 23, 2012 at 8:59 pm #

        in other words, it is ok to repeatedly post the same anti-shiite bigotry (as ls and ka incessantly do) or msm sound bite propaganda (such as about syria), but posting articles that are actually informative, rather than msm zionist/fascist propaganda, is bringing deliberation down.

      Laura to who_me:

      “It’s a shame you are devaluing deLiberation with you endless propaganda feed though”

      In addition to being patently ridiculous, this statement–only one of many — shows a complete inability for self-examination and a wanton disrespect for others.
      You post only darkly bigoted sectarian views, you make statements of stark irrationality (e.g., “Libya is better off now”), which you support with testimonies you communicate to us from your “friends” and with BBC reports.
      Your sidekick, sadly an author on de Lib in the general section of the site, instead of a special category that should be called “Weird and Creepy” does not conduct a dialog, he only aberrates about us (except you, naturally) being agents of the Syrian secret police and Satan, that is, when he does not lie outright, contradicting himself and peppering his bits with repetitive insults:

      fool me once:
      @Khalid
      “How can I be a sectarian when I represent 1500 Million Muslims?”

      July 23, 2012 at 8:56 pm
      … you make an obscene lie when you claim I am the voice of the Sultan.
      ..
      In truth, it is you who is the voice of mendacity and Satan, you are an evil voice for evil, oppression and murder.
      I don’t believe you. Even if you were Christian, you would be a pesudo-Christian. True Christians don’t lie, but you lie as osten as you breathe.”

      You and he have decidedly lowered the quality and level of debates on deLib with your boring and iterative sectarian rants, your non-sequiturs about Assda’s wife’s shopping, or somebody’s suspected plastic surgery, which you “enliven” by insults. This makes your statement to who_me nothing short of brazen.
      That is my opinion. Now you can let loose on those who wishes to “control” commentaries, etc, etc

        thanks

        and you put into words much of the criticism i sought to express, but failed to.

    “Again you just post articles from other agencies.”

    What’s wrong in getting news from news agencies?
    Unlike your Khalid, I have no “Reliable” sources feeding me, neither in Damascus nor in Turkey,Jordan and Tripoly. Unlike you, I never made paid political tourism. I delined three Libyan invitation during Nato criminal war.
    I am independent but not nuetral. I support resistance, despite its ideology/theology especially at hard times.
    I am not an oppotionist, like your Brotherhood. My Polical QIBLAH is Palestine.

    I posted hundreds of articles comments defending Hamas, when all the world was against Hamas.

    Here is a sample. Its a comment on “Hamas’ political immaturity”

    Hamas “Improving”: From “Immunity to learning” To “Immaturity” – updated

    For years, I was at odds with Tony Sayegh (The palestinian pandit) who claimed that Hamas leadership is using resistance to get to negociation table. Events proved that he was right, though Tony, out of suuden stopped attacking Hamas, and joined the global media war on Syria

    What is wrong is that we are not supposed to be like facebook where people post articles from news agencies, it is supposed to be articles written by authors which can be backed up by links to media articles. It is an issue of copyright. You devalue the site by posting propaganda.

      “You devalue the site by posting propaganda.”

      What do you mean by propaganda Laura?

  7. Laura Stuart July 23, 2012 at 12:04 pm #

    I think you would agree Roy that there is a propaganda war taking place on many fronts.

    Posting articles wholesale from other media.

    I could post articles on here without comment but I don’t.

  8. Alex July 23, 2012 at 12:17 pm #

    “I could post articles on here without comment but I don’t.”

    So you want a comment.

    Give me few miniute to post my comments on one of your articles posted at UP.

    My comment expose you ignorance in reading and understanding Quran, because they taught you to put your brain in a deep freezer

    • Roy Bard July 23, 2012 at 12:35 pm #

      “My comment expose you ignorance in reading and understanding Quran, because they taught you to put your brain in a deep freezer”

      I’m sure there is a way to highlight your different views without being so offensive. Some of us are trying to work out what is going on here, and the ad homs don’t really help us. Please lets try and focus on the ideas rather than personal attacks.

  9. Alex July 23, 2012 at 2:49 pm #

    “Please lets try and focus on the ideas rather than personal attacks.”

    Who is preventing you from focussing on Ideas?
    It is not me.. its her and him who wants avoid the real issues, ignore the message and hit the messanger, to turn deLibation into a propagana tool against shiites.

    • Roy Bard July 23, 2012 at 3:31 pm #

      It still helps if you demolish what the poster is saying, rather than tell them that they are ignorant and their brain is in a deep freezer of whatever.

      Obviously the readers have to make their own minds up about the blatant attacks on Shi’ites. I’m sure I’m not the only one who finds them disturbing. (the attacks rather than Shi’ites!)

  10. Alex July 23, 2012 at 5:24 pm #

    I will not spoil my time digging for personal attacks and name calling. If the “The editors can’t say which religious opinions are acceptable and which are not.” as you wrote, editors should not allow humilating a sect.
    Besides its not the editors duty to say which reiligous opinions are acceptable and which are not.

    Turkish Soldiers kill 20 Syrian Security Forces in Massacre

    these refugees are not demanding weapons. instead, they describe how the fsa treated them:

    Syrian refugees are fearing rebels, not Assad!
