واشنطن في 6/5/2004 -- من خلال أتصال أجرته الإدارة الأمريكية مع المقر الرئيسي المؤقت لحزب الإصلاح السوري في واشنطن اتضح أنه في القريب العاجل سيتم تطبيق أغلب بنود قانون محاسبة النظام السوري، وصرح عضو القيادة المركزية لحزب الإصلاح السوري السيد خالد حقي أن بشار أسد يتوسل البيت الأبيض عبر جورج تينيت رئيس وكالة الاستخبارات المركزية الأمريكية لتأجيل تطبيق العقوبات المقرة حيال نظامه، ولم يوفق بهذه الوساطة.

Personal Testimony of Baathist Iraq
This is from an Iraqi-American who, because of the fact that she has family still in Iraq, will remain nameless, but is a credible source I know and trust.
Baath killed my great grandfather and two cousins because they were Christian. My grandfather was killed because he had a gold mine and a lot of property and farm fields and the Baath came and they wanted to buy it and he didn’t want to sell it because it was his so they stabbed him continuously until he bled to death. My two second cousins were killed because they tried assassinating Saddam’s son [as revenge for the fact that the Baath] ... killed their father, [who was an Iraqi] general at the time. Saddam killed my uncle because he disobeyed his order so he shot him between the eyes. My two cousins were almost raped by Saddam’s guards but my aunt managed to help them escape the park they were having a picnic at. They almost were killed. And all that happened just because they were Christian. Isnt this all crazy, no one really knows what happens in Iraq but Iraqi people, the rest of the world just has 5% of what really happens to Christians and other civilians
Baathists Say : No to Israel, Yes to North Korea
Syria banned four ships that made stops in Israeli ports, and placed nine Israeli companies on a blacklist. The ships were from Denmark, Greece and Malta.
Meanwhile, a North Korean and an Italian ship were taken off the blacklist after they assured Syrian officials that they would not visit Israeli ports. Arab boycotts of Israel once were widespread but have weakened during the past decade, despite occasional attempts to revive them.
