Louis Proyect: The Unrepentant Marxist

RT.com report on the rebel sabotage of the Wadi Barada springs

Filed under: Syria — louisproyect @ 8:17 pm

RT.com has just identified the jihadist who blew up the pumping station in Wadi Barada. He is the infamous leader of the al-Malarki militia that has been funded by Saudi Arabia, Qatar and East Waziristan. He goes by the name Yossan Miti al-Sami and has reputedly killed and eaten the hearts of 2,386 Syrian soldiers.



  1. So do you think the rebels can be compared to the the NoDPL water protectors? Maybe they should be called “activists” instead of “rebels”. Do you know their position on women’s rights? It is obvious the Assad regime has ruined their own water supply due to their evil nature.

  2. Doug, if you read the article that preceded this one, you’ll understand that the Syrian bourgeoisie bought the land from underneath the feet of the poor farmers who owned it in Wadi Barada under Bashar al-Assad’s neoliberal dictatorship so the analogy with NoDAPL (not NoDPL) is not that far-fetched..

  4. Thank you for your reply (and correction). Can we assume the activists are operating schools for girls? Perhaps the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is helping the water protectors at Standing Rock. I haven’t heard of it, but it would make a lot of sense.

  5. Yes, being supported by Saudi Arabia is the kiss of death. Unless Russia is allowed to bomb hospitals with impunity, these bearded, heart-eating devils might come to Park Slope and impose Sharia law, kill people selling cigarettes and force women to wear burqas.

  6. I am trying to think of ways to help the activists. Maybe sending money to fund one of their schools where girls are getting a real education. Since they have been prevented from learning to read by the evil regime their only hope must lie with the activists. Of course, they need water too, maybe we should petition UNICEF to dig wells or something. Do the activists in the Wadi Barada area have a name? Or is there a name for the school? I think that “Al Malarky milita” is fake.
