SYRIA: Young boy’s fury spells trouble for Bashar Assad’s regime(L.A. Times)
A young Syrian boy whose grandfather and relatives were killed and dumped into a mass grave vows revenge, in the latest sign that the weeks-long uprising against the rule of Bashar Assad and his family will continue.
A young man described as the grandchild of Abdulrazaq Abdulaziz Abazeid was shown in a video posted online promising to avenge the death of his family, dug out of a mass grave last week.
The bodies of two generations of Abazeid men, a father and his four sons, were all found in one mass grave with an additional 35 bodies belonging to pro-democracy protesters.
Radwan Ziadeh, director of the Damascus Center for Human Rights Studies, said he believed that many more mass graves will be found in the coming weeks, as the wrath of the Baath regime descends on many other towns.
In the video above, Abazeid’s pre-adolescent grandchild stands, blood boiling, leading a crowd chanting “God is great,” and warning Assad, “Fear God, you oppressor.”
