On Friday, September 14, 2018, Brig. General Yousif Raaghib Shakkoor, passed away at the Yousif Al-‘Azhma Hospital.  His coffin was then carried to the Orthodox Church of the Cross where several eloquent eulogies were delivered by Lt. General Mahmoud ‘Abdul-Wahhaab Shawwaa (ret) who is Deputy Defense Minister speaking on behalf of the Syrian Army General Staff and his daughter, the Ambassador to France, Lamia Shakkour.  Ambassador Shakkour was one of many Syrian diplomats ordered to close their embassies in the wake of the NATO and Qatari/Saudi-supported conspiracy against the Syrian people in 2011.

Lt. Gen. Shawwaa discussed the deceased’s exploits as former Chief of the Syrian General Staff during the 1973 October War.  His daughter, Ambassador Lamia Shakkour, discussed the affectionate nature of her father and his love for country, family and his close friends.

Afterward, the procession headed to the St. George Orthodox Cemetery in Baab Sharqi where the general was laid down in his final abode.  The coffin was draped in the flag of the republic with the words “Syrian Arab Army” emblazoned on it along with two (2) wreaths of roses, as is the tradition of the SAA.

In attendance were Mansour ‘Azzaam representing the President and Commander-in-Chief of the Syrian Armed Forces, Dr. Bashshaar Al-Assad, Dr. Faysal Miqdaad, Deputy Foreign Minister and Dr. Ayman Soosaan, Assistant Foreign Minister.

Brig. General Shakkour commanded the Syrian Armed Forces during the famed 1973 October War during which both Syria and Egypt initiated a coordinated attack on the Golan Heights and, Sinai respectively.  While the Sinai campaign got bogged down with Zionist forces after the Apartheid State mobilized its army and crossed the Suez to strangle the Egyptian Third Army (a campaign led by dead Russian-Zionist slob, Ariel Sharon, real name “Ariel Scheinermann”), the Syrian Army was forced to retreat to defensible positions and commenced a very effective “War of Attrition”, blunting the Zionist attack at Sa’sa’.  The success of the Syrian effort was due to the planning and resoluteness of General Shakkour and former defense minister, Lt. General Mustafa Tlaas who should have been in attendance at the funeral.  I have received a message explaining that General Tlaas has health issues.

Brig. General Shakkour is one of two (2) Christian Orthodox men to occupy the post of Chief of the General Staff.  If some will remember, the second, Lt. General Daawood ‘Abdullah Raajiha, was murdered in an American/Zionist/Saudi plot that failed to decapitate the Syrian Army command in July of 2012.

In Pace Requiescat.

Reuters is owned by the Thomsons a Canadian old money Oligarchy family (around $30 billion net worth, according to Forbes).

I worked for a company once that was taken over by the Thomson family. They are like the mob, they arrived to the meeting they had set up with the employees to inform us of our now being a purchased part of their empire in a convoy of black limos.

It really felt like a mob style takeover, and I left that company shortly after that.

Ziad’s hero > Tulsi Gabbard Slams “Betrayal Of American People” Over Syria.
comment image
“Hawaiian Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard 13 Sept. slammed Washington’s standing-up to protect 20,000 to 40,000 al-Qaeda & other jihadist forces in Syria, and threatening Russia, Syria, and Iran with military force if they dare attack these terrorists. A betrayal of the American people – especially victims & families that perished on 9/11.” (again and again I salute Tulsi Gabbard, a brave, determined heroine for Syria. Mike).

One of the things I admire about Syrian culture and society is the rich diversity of its people. Syria has been as is still now beating back the ZioNato/Gulf Arabs & Turkish attempt to dismember it and impose a sectarian dystopia upon its people (those remaining alive and not outright genocided by the wahabbist inspired and methamphetamine fueled sex jihad). The Syria I admire refused to die, and fought back against the empire! The Syria I admire is winning this existential struggle and will emerge victorious and stronger. The SAA represents, AND is also representative of the tapestry of Syria.… Read more »

The general was a great man of army, in 1973. The Egypt betrayer president Sadat begin this war with a secret agreement with the Zionist invaders and USA. He need a war becouse he did a white coup d’etat and jailed or murdered all the Nasserians in the power roles. People were angry and the army were near to do a counter golpe. With Kissinger, planed a war in wich Egypt could take the Sinai, in change, Israhell will receive Palestina and could destroy Syria by arriving in Damascus where some betrayers as Gemayel in libano would take the power… Read more »

Israel has attempted to strike Syria again. Damascus International Airport this time around- what’s that over two hundred plus strikes now- maybe 250? I’ve lost count. Fortunately, based on early reports Syria succeeded in intercepting the missiles and thwarting the attack Despite what’s been claimed there is SANA footage on Youtube Not sure how or why or even where this rumour began regarding removing Syrian information from Youtube-? but- here’s video posted on youtube, right now! SANA youtube- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1cHovv_6fh8 Video available at SANA site- Link to SANA’s report below https://sana.sy/en/?p=147083 And sputnik for good measure “Our air defences responded to… Read more »

Firstly, let me express my regard for Brig. General Yousif Raaghib Shakkoor, who clearly lived a full life. A Syrian patriot, but all of us sadly pass on sooner or later. My sympathies to his friends and family. Secondly, also allow me to express my regards for Tulsi Gabbard, who seems to one of the few US politicians to have any sense of morals and ethics (I will add Senators Richard Black and Rand Paul to that very limited list, although I don’t necessarily agree with their manifestos). Thirdly, I will admit to disappointment that the SAA and RF have… Read more »

UPDATE: RUMOURS OF THE END FOR MBS. 1. There are some rumours in the western media including a British newspaper and a Spanish on the potential dismissal of MBS by his father. 2. Apparently senior Saudi religious clerics also had a meeting with King Salman to convey their displeasure with MBS, this means that MBS cannot totally restrict alternative voices accessing his father who is still king and absolute ruler of Saudi. This poses the question on how much access others such as senior Saudi princes can gain access to Salman and tell him to get rid of MBS? Apparently… Read more »

Government forces struck militant positions in the settlements of Kobajjep and al-Rashwaniyah, control of which opens the way to the strategically important area of Humeimah, [NOT Hmeimim] which lies on the border with Deir ez-Zor province.
