recommended readings on Syria

From Akram in Damascus:  "Here you (and angyarab followers who can read Arabic) can read this important piece of Fateh Jamous recalling a conference held by the Syrian opposition forces in the Syrian city of Deir Ezzor in 2005 (Arabic). The piece is part of a series of three pieces (can be read in the same site). It reveals the deep roots of part of the Syrian opposition’s tendency to rely on the US intervention to topple the Syrian regime. The piece is very dense and is written with a style that can’t be considered particularly attractive but I found it worth to be read.
As a background, Fateh Jamous is a deep-rooted communist militant, leading figure in the Communist Labor Party, a dissident group of the official Syrian Communist Party, and co-founder (with Qadri Jamil) of the Movement of Peaceful Change. More can be read on Mr. Jamous and his party here.

Also recommended is this piece of Mohammad Sayyed Rassas treating the same subject (Arabic)"
