Family Matters

[Warning, very graphic] This peaceful freedom protester, Mahmoud, was shot and killed by the government on Friday, May 6, 2011 (dubbed The Friday of Defiance). Mahmoud’s father was killed by the government in the 1980s, when the people defied the dictatorship of the current president’s father.  Mahmoud’s father’s in law was also killed at that time, when Mahmoud’s wife was only 2 months old. Mahmoud and his wife currently have a one year old son. Unless the Syrian revolution topples this dictatorship down, he may very well grow up and get killed by the government, just like his dad and two grandfathers, with the current president’s son as president at that time. (Syria is officially a democratic republic but it has been ruled by the Assad family, father & now son, for decades)…
