Beirut - The crackdown in Syria has killed 10 108 people since the uprising against President Bashar Assad's regime erupted last March, the head of the Syrian Observatory of Human Rights said on Monday.

"10 108 people were killed - 7 306 civilians, 2 248 members of government forces and 554 soldiers who defected from the Syrian army," Abdul Rahman told AFP.

For its part, the United Nations says that more than 9 000 people have died in the crackdown launched by the Syrian regime to crush the uprising against Assad's rule.

    Not a peep from the Israel haters. Just shows you, if you muslim you have right of way to kill other muslims.

      Patrick, the point is Muslims who have an anti-Israel OCD are out in droves when there's half an article about Israel and the Palestinians, but when there are articles about Muslims being slaughtered by brutal Muslim dictators or Muslim terrorists with their car bombs and suicide attacks: hardly a peep. It's weird.

      In fact, when these articles appear (about the actions of dictators and terrorist) Muslims blame the US and Israel. Even weirder.
