    Syria violence at 'unprecedented level,' U.N. monitor says

    Gen. Robert Mood, head of the U.N. team, says dialogue is impossible amid the escalating conflict. Meanwhile, the highest-profile defection yet is reported.

    By Patrick J. McDonnell, Los Angeles Times

    July 6, 2012
    BEIRUT — Violence in Syria has surged to an "unprecedented level," the chief of the United Nations observer mission said Thursday, as reports surfaced of the most high-profile defection to date from the security forces of President Bashar Assad.

    Gen. Robert Mood, who heads the observer team in Syria, painted a grim picture of a nation where both sides in the conflict seem determined to use force and show little appetite for compromise or dialogue.

    "The violence is continuing and escalating because the parties involved have decided that their objectives are better served by using violence than by choosing a political process," Mood told reporters in Damascus, the Syrian capital. "It is not possible to sit down and have a dialogue in the middle of this kind of violence."

    The comments from the Norwegian general are the latest indication that the situation in Syria is spiraling toward all-out civil war as diplomatic efforts have failed to produce any prospect for peace.

    Really, Princess? Do you actually believe that Syria sliding into civil war has no bearing on Israel and those hapless "Palestinians?" You really are every bit as dim as you seem to be.

    "You do not represent Palestine as much as we do. Never forget this one point: There is no such thing as a Palestinian people, there is no Palestinian entity, there is only Syria. You are an integral part of the Syrian people, Palestine is an integral part of Syria. Therefore it is we, the Syrian authorities, who are the true representatives of the Palestinian people".

    Everyone reading the link will have a better understanding of the situation and should cause Pali lovers to doubt their beliefs.

    You've probably been at this long enough to know you can't shake the beliefs of "Pali lovers" with facts and truth because they are interested in neither, nor do they actually love "Palis."
    For the vast majority of them this is all about the hate ... hate for Israel and hate for Jews (not necessarily in that order).
