The parable of those who take [beings or forces] other than God for their protectors is that of the spider which makes for itself a house: for behold, the frailest of all houses is the spider's house. If only they understood this! (Quran 29:41)

Videos from Syria
Some videos from the demonstrations in Syria today. The first is from a mosque in Dar`ah which is being used to treat the wounded. The second shows a demonstration in Damascus, they're chanting "God, Syria and freedom only"*. The third video shows a demonstration in Hims. They chant "With blood, with spirit we will redeem you oh Dar`ah". And finally there's a demonstration in Dar`ah which has become the Sidi Bouzid of Syria. They're chanting "God is Great", "the people want the overthrowing of Al-Asad" and "We are the struggling people of Syria" or something, it's difficult to make that one out.
*That's a response to Syria's motto during the Al-Asads' rule (both father & son) -"God, Homeland, President" in another protest the loyalists chanted "God, Syria and Bashar" (thanks Maria)
