I admit that i can not see things as cynically as you or i do not wish to do so and i am always trying to see the humanitarian aspects of events as well, i have to admit that your arguments even though cynical, they have a logic but, first of all you are asking me to support the person on that video

I am sorry, i would never do that, like never in my life, this person is an insult to humanity, how could i ever support such a person?

But let's ask a very useful question, that it has not been asked in public. What does America wish for Syria, what does Israel wish for Syria, what does Europe wish for Syria, what does the Russian, the Arabs and Iran wish for Syria. What we do know is what the three last want, but i am afraid that we do not have to propose anything or that the propositions are at least ridiculous unrealistic or horrific!

And this is a true same, it proves our cultural decline a decline we do not do anything to avoid. The Syrian situation, the economic crisis, just show that we have no principles, no ideals and we have become the worst of the worst and we are going to pay for that, mark my words.

I put all of us in this same pot, all western nations, because Israel is a Western nation as well, the same is Greece, the same is Cyprus, the same is England, France and America. Look at what we propose for Syria. Kerry says remove Assad and let the "good" rebels take over, while Assad wins the war and while nobody knows if such good rebels even exist? Is there any space for judgements on such propositions, propositions without a purpose, without a clear goal, without any kind of realism, Israel officials say let them kill each other, how about the people, nobody cares about the people? Civilians from all sides and Christians being the victims of a holocaust of a genocide. No doubt Israel has to look the interests of it's state, but what good is to live even in paradise, if around you is hell?

What about Europe? Oh Europe does not have an opinion, whatever "master" Kerry says! How long do they think that they can keep up by playing this game against people with the will to conquer, people who clearly hate us? You would argue that they do not have such military power, i would beg to differ, because if those people transfer the war inside our cities then no technology will be able protect us!

I am ringing the alarm as loud as possible, we have lost our path in total and the war in Syria is just a sign for this, we have lost our humanity, but along with it our rationality as well! Our greed has made us blind, arrogant, irrational and unhuman.
