    Op-ed: Hands off Syria?

    BY HAROLD BROWN WASHINGTON, DC – More than any of the previous events in the Arab Spring, Syria’s turmoil has presented serious difficulties for Western policymakers. Just as Syria comprises a more complex society than the other Arab countries currently in the throes of political transition, so, too, are its external relations more complex. As a result, any attempt at decisive military intervention would be not only difficult, but also extremely risky. Syria’s leading role in Lebanon, even after withdrawing its occupying forces there, is only one complication. Another is Alawite-minority rule in a Sunni-majority country, which makes Syria a…

    Egypt’s stake in the Syrian revolution

    Numerous segments of the Egyptian public have thrown their weight behind “their” Syrian revolution and cheered for their team.

    BY AMRO ALI When Tahrir Square was not playing host to Egypt’s revolutionary sequels, it became one of the chief unofficial nerve centres of the Syrian Revolution.

In a nutshell, think new beginnings. The first part of the term, Arab, is a misnomer. In…

    Syrian refugees tell their stories

    11-year-old Yasmeen shares her story on the Syrian Voices blog.

    BY MAURICE CHAMMAH Cairo: By necessity, the work proceeds in secret. A small group of activists and refugees are collecting and distributing goods to Egypt’s growing population of Syrian refugees, who have escaped increasing violence as the Free Syrian Army battles Bashar Al-Assad’s government. “We can no longer shoulder the amount of people coming in,” they say in a statement that circulates online. “There are approximately 2,000 Syrians in Egypt that have fled the violence and the number is slowly but steadily growing.” An activist who goes by the email handle Damascus Rebel visited a handful of the Syrian refugees,…
