Al-Jaafari: International Commission of Inquiry on Syria turns a blind eye on crimes

New York, (SANA)_ Syria's Permanent Representative to UN, Dr. Bashar al-Jaafari called on Chairman of the UN Independent International Commission of Inquiry (CoI) on Syria, Paulo Pinheiro to view the crisis unfolding in Syria from a wider perspective just for calling things by their names in order to tackle the roots of the problem, instead of approaching it from a one-sided perspective.Speaking during a UN General Assembly session to discuss human rights in Syria, Dr. al-Jaafari said '' The Commission of Inquiry on Syria is still deliberately blowing things out of proportion when displaying its findings, also fully disregarding or downplaying core issues.''
''There are blood-curdling scenes that flagrantly contravene the Syrians' dignity and human rights regarding the crimes of the armed terrorist groups, ranging from eating human flesh, cutting throats, mutilating bodies, beheadings on sectarian and confessional grounds, throwing bodies from rooftops to committing hundreds of suicide bombings using car bombs in populated areas, recruiting children, abducting and slaughtering clergymen, assassinating scholars in mosques, issuing instigative fatwas on 'sexual jihad', killing children on the charges of infidelity, robbing factories and transporting them to Turkey,'' al-Jaafari said.
Dr. al-Jaafari reiterated that the Syrian government will do everything in its power to supply the inquiry commission with all the confirmed information it has for the sake of forging a neutral and independent vision that helps the commission fulfill its commitments and duties.
''How could the international community allow the Saudi, Qatari and Turkish regimes to sponsor fundamentalist terrorism publicly? And how could Western governments which had suffered from terrorism accept to sponsor and support that terrorism?'' al-Jaafari queried.

Mr. al-Jaafari makes a fair point recently when speaking at the UN. How are we and other countries siding with groups that eat flesh, execute men and women, behead people, and fight based on sectarian grounds. This is not who we should be supporting. I believe we should stay completely out of the conflict. Saying that its always good to hear the other side of the story, and stating that, i dont side myself with the Assad regime but im just saying he makes a very fair and good point.
