It seems that the common Syrian people pushing for months now to get their President out of the way may be receiving some love from an unusual group. The internationally feared Hacktivist group, Anonymous, might have joined the demonstration via the web.
The group has claimed responsibility for bringing down the Syrian Ministry of Defense website, with a message that calls for the stepping down of its President, Bashar Al-Assad.
“To the Syrian people: The world stands with you against the brutal regime of Bashar Al-Assad,” the message begins in both English and Arabic. ” … To the Syrian military: You are responsible for protecting the Syrian people, and anyone who orders you to kill women, children, and the elderly deserves to be tried for treason. No outside enemy could do as much damage to Syria as Bashar Al-Assad has done. Defend your country — rise up against the regime!”
This message was immediately taken out by the Ministry officials. A replica of the message via Anonymous Twitter account has the message with link to a website where they archived it. It is important to state that in the Arab Spring, Libya and Syria are the ones that have remained difficult for demonstrators to break down. Egypt and Tunisia are done. Yemen has been broken down through the incapacitation of their leader who is receiving medical treatment in Saudi Arabia. The Syrian cries is estimated to have taken more than 2,000 lives.
