You obstacle to the true, noble Resistance! We will not forgive you; you and the regime are but two sides of the same campaign of repression. Wait for us. The free, honorable Syrian people will expose your lies and your hypocrisy against our sacred blood. In Bahrain, you call it a revolution. In Syria, you call it a conspiracy. But you are the one will lose out, you sick sectarian. Long live a civil democratic, free Syria, free of your wretched like."
