Syrian opponent Mamoun Al-Homsi’s Israel connection

The Arab Digest | February 27, 2012

The Arab Digest had previously reported on Syrian Opposition member, Mamoun Al-Homsi, and his call for ethnic cleansing of minorities in Syria. Well, new questions emerge on his politics and suspicious ties with Israel.

Mamoun Al-Homsi is pictured above at the Prague Security Conference (NeoCon) with the Israeli-Italian right wing politician and hardline Zionist, Fiamma Nirenstein. Nirenstein who is a neocon Zionist has spent much of her life in an illegal East Jerusalem Settlement called Gilo where she still maintains a home.

Nirenstein is known for translating books of Nathan Sharansky, Bernard Lewis and Ruthie Bloom; she led efforts on behalf of the Israeli government to thwart the Palestinian bid for full UN membership and Statehood.

She is also known for hardline Zionist quotes like “every Jew in the world is an Israeli even if he’s not aware of it. Anyone who doesn’t know it is making a big mistake” and “morally speaking, there mustn’t be negotiations with Hamas, which thinks that Jews are the sons of monkeys and pigs. You can’t negotiate with cannibals, who eat human beings”. Her stances drove Luisa Morgantini, the Vice President of the European Parliament to write an article in 2007, criticizing her hawkish stances, it was titled “Fiamma Nirenstein and the conspiracy of treacherous Palestinians who do not want peace.”

Nirenstein spends her year between an Italian residence and the East Jerusalem settlement with her husband, Israeli photographer Ofer Eshed.

The question remains, what was Homsi doing with her in Prague?

Homsi has also met her and U.S. based Farid Ghadri, a pro-Israeli opposition figure, in Rome where they discussed Syria. Nirenstein later wrote a post about her meeting with the two, expressing her deep worries over Hezbollah’s capabilities and Syria’s arsenal of rockets, capable of reaching Israel.

A Syrian dissident calls for the ethnic cleansing of minorities!

Rhetoric in Syria’s revolution took a dangerous Sectarian shift with former Syrian MP and opposition activist Mamoun Homsi, 56, making ethnic cleansing threats against minorities. He clearly stated that in Syria, “there will be no minorities”, and called for the obliteration of the ruling Allawite community. … continue

  1. Oh dear… Somebody gets on a picture with an Israeli during an international event and immediately they have an Israeli connection… This is nothing but pure supposition & innuendo…

    • Yes, and no doubt it is pure coincidence that both he and Shimon Peres called for the ethnic cleansing of the Allawites.

      • The Allawites minority in Syria are hated by the majority Sunnies for several reasons:

        1) The Allawites are a branch of Shia Islam (the enmity between Sunni and Shia Islam is well known)
        2) Prior to the French mandate in Lebanon and Syria the Allawites were the downtrodden part of the local population… During the French mandate in Lebanon and Syria the Allawites were pulled forward/upward by the French in the age-old practice of “divide & rule… Following Syrian independence and the rise of Allawite rulers the hatred of the Allawite minority by the Sunni majority has only increased…

        To claim that just because (allegedly) Mamoun Al-Homsi and Shimon Peres see some things the same way Mamoun Al-Homsi is a Zionist/Israeli stooge is pure supposition & innuendo… But then again, supposition & innuendo is what propagandists do best…

        • Zionists from Canada have no insights on Syrian society to offer. Just obnoxious dogma.
