Overall, the proposed ”Syria Disintegration” plan seems to be not so practical. Also, it seems to favour the NATO-US-Saudi-Zionist agenda in the long-run. The alternative is a united Syria free of West-backed Salafists and al-Qaida terrorists. Even if Bashar were to be gone, the change must bring about democracy including all the opposition parties minus the Salafists. But the victory by the Salafist rebels and a civil war leading to disintegration of Syria just serves fulfilling the NATO-US-Saudi-Zionist plans.
This is an analysis of a recently published article on Syria with some information compiled by one esteemed analyst on one social media forum. The article proposes a plan as the only solution to end the Syria conflict by dividing Syria on the ethno-religious grounds. The original article has the title: Ethno-religious division of Syria into West Syria, East Syria and Kurdistan is the only solution. The readers are encouraged to read the original article as well by clicking on the above link.
|The proposed ”Syria Disintegration” map|
It is not known who has proposed this solution originally. Is this a proposal by the author himself or some plan devised by the troika of NATO, USA and Israel? In any case it has a few characteristics that would appeal to many who aspire for peace in Syria at any cost. This plan does indeed have some merits and some demerits. It seems to be based on a thorough homework about the ethno-religious divide in Syria using the sources, all of which unfortunately belong to the parties who are on the side of the rebels or who would very much like to see Syria disintegrated, just like what they want in the case of Libya. However, assuming that all the information given on the sources used in this plan is correct, this seems like an ”interesting” division that apparently will bring about peace in the short-term but in the long-run will fulfil the expansionist agenda of the war-mongering odious alliances aspiring to topple Bashar al-Assad.
In the following my responses to different parts of the proposed plan are given.
West Syria (WS): The plan shrinks the current Syria, and with that I mean the Syria with the political and foreign policy as of today, into a mere strip ruled by the Alawites and Christians, which is squeezed between Turkey and northern Lebanon. The plan claims that it will please the Iranians because they could still support Hezbollah. But in fact this ”incentive” is not true. The tiny WS will stretch down to the Northern Lebanon, not the South that is the Hezbollah stronghold. And of course it won’t have any border with Iran. Moreover, the WS implies giving up on Golan Heights to the Zionist regime of Israel that the current Alawite-Christian government so strongly claims.
East Syria (ES): This is the big chunk with all the resources and will be ruled by Sunni Muslims (Shafai and Hanafi) and the minority Salafists – the minority who has so much been supported by the West and is leading the ”revolution” i.e. there is a big chance that they will be in the driving seat or very influential in the East Syria having borders with Turkey, Jordan, Iraq, Middle to South Lebanon and Israel including Golan Heights. As the Salafists are in the front to ”free” Syria, they will be willing to give up on Golan Heights and accept this plan. The Saudis and the Turks and all the Western powers will fully support them and the ES will forver become a safe haven for the Salafist and Al-Qaida terrorists, a permanent threat – a pressure group to which ever government comes into power. Moreover, they will easily operate inside Iraq to accomplish their Salafist goals that includes the persecution of Shia Muslims and destroying Iran
Damascus, Shia Muslims and Shrines: The plan states that ”UNESCO as well as UN army will be responsible for the security of holy shrines and historical sites in Damascus, Aleppo and other cities in East and West Syria. UN army will also ensure security of thousands of Shia and Sufi Sunni Muslims originally from Turkey, Pakistan, India, Iraq, Iran etc who are settled in the Sayyida Zainab area of Damascus”.
This is not a permanent solution rather a temporary solution that cannot go for too long. Moreover, the track record of UN peace keeping forces in places around the world is not remarkable. Moreover, it will put the Shia Muslims, the Sufis and the whole activities of the holy Shrine as well as the activities of the scholars and students of the seminary under constant watch of the UN. Also the Israeli and other agents in the disguise of the peacekeeping forces will be there to monitor every move of them. Moreover, this just is not a good idea because the Shrine is one of the most important places for Shia Muslims and has millions of pilgrims visiting it each other. SO, the pilgrims or all the students and clergymen would have to apply for residence permits to the East Syria government. Or which authority otherwise? This would eradicate Shia Muslims from the Syrian soil or make them completely ineffective. Not a good idea, all in all.
The Kurds etc will get their sovereign states making it difficult for Iraq as well as Iran because this will inspire the Kurds there bringing about troubles for the Iranian and Iraqi governments.
Overall, the plan seems to be not so practical. Also, it seems to favour the NATO-US-Saudi-Zionist agenda in the long-run. The alternative is a united Syria free of West-backed Salafists and al-Qaida terrorists. Even if Bashar were to be gone, the change must bring about democracy including all the opposition parties minus the Salafists. But the victory by the Salafist rebels and a civil war leading to disintegration of Syria just serves fulfilling the NATO-US-Saudi-Zionist plans.
