'Omar the Syrian': journalist-activist killed in Homs
7th February 2012, 1 comment
"Omar the Syrian" was the pseudonym of Mazhar Tayyara, a stringer for Agence France-Presse and activist killed in overnight shelling of the city of Homs, where regime forces stand accused of having carried out a "massacre."
The 24-year engineering student left his home in Inshaat district in the middle of the night and went to the protest stronghold of Khaldiyeh that was bearing the brunt of an onslaught last Friday, activists said.
"He was trying to help some people wounded in the bombardment when a second volley of shells fell and he was hit," a friend told AFP.
"He was hit in the head, the stomach and in a leg and died of his injuries three hours later in hospital," early Saturday, the friend, who lives outside Syria, said requesting anonymity.
Tayyara was stringing for several media including the AFP video service, the British daily The Guardian, and the German newspaper Die Welt. He also appeared on the satellite networks Al-Jazeera and CNN.
"Last April, just after the start of anti-regime protests, he told me that something had to be done, that the revolution would not stop at Syria's borders," his friend said.
"He then started to take part in protests and then to help foreign journalists who had managed to make their way to Homs," in central Syria.
"He found his calling and bought a new camera," he said. "He died doing what he believed was right for his country."
The very first video footage he provided AFP was of a tank entering the city of Homs back in December.
The Syrian army has surrounded Homs for several months, laying siege to the country's third largest city and hotbed of anti-regime dissent.
Opposition groups and activists reported a "massacre" overnight Friday in Homs, saying more than 230 civilians were killed during a heavy tank and mortar bombardment by regime forces.
The Syrian government which has launched a lethal repression on democracy protests since mid-March blamed the violence on "armed terrorist groups."
Tayyara's friends have set up a Facebook page to pay tribute to the young man.
They have posted pictures of Tayyara smiling to the camera and show a lighter side of the young man and his passion for football and basketball.
Tayyara was a keen fervent supporter of the Homs football team, Al-Karama (Dignity).
"Dignity is what he wanted for the Syrians. He wanted their lives to be less bitter," said a childhood friend who has now left Syria and who also did not wish to be identified.
Video footage of his funeral has been posted on the Internet that shows a crowd carrying his body inside Omar bin Khattab mosque in Homs. In the background the crowd is chanting: "The people demand the fall of the regime."
French journalist Gilles Jacquier was killed in bombing of Homs on January 11.

THE BLOOD-OOZING "GLOVALIZATION" AGAINST ARABS AND SEMI-ARABS -1
BY THE WEEK AND BY THE DAY AND BY THE HOUR, .. AND WITH EACH PERSON KILLED OR INJURED, OR RAPED OR CORRUPTIZED, OR DETAINED OR TORTURED, OR PUSHED TO ILLNESS OR DEPRESSION, OR STRIPPED OF SHELTER OR BELONGINGS, .. THE IN-SHADOWS INFRA-BLACK-EVIL “NEO-IMPERIALIST” PLOTS OF LUCIFER’S WORSHIPERS AND FREE-MASONS AGAINST ARAB AND SEMI-ARAB PEOPLES AND COUNTRIES, AND THEIR VALUABLES, RESOURCES AND HERITAGES, .. ARE GETTING MORE AND MORE AND MORE PROTRUDED AND SWELLED, AND HENCE EXPOSED, AND BEHELD ...
For so much of the in-office-terms of the 'Deceptive Fake Absolute-Rulerships' of each of :- Hosny Mubaarak, Zeyn el-Aabedeen, Aly Saaleĥ, Baŝŝaar el-Asadd, and even Mu'âmmar el-Qađđaafy, .. the Ruling-Trick was One and The Same :
" In Front Of Their Tamed Same-Nationality Subjects, They, Combined With Their Surrounding Blood-Sucking Oligarchies, Act Falsely And Showingly Like 'Oppressive Native Dictators', .. But In Front Of Their Ruthless 'New World Dis-Order' Masters, They Act Like 'Obedient Treacherous Vassals' ".
Hence and So : After they were secretly 'Disordered', What they are 'Ordered' to do of 'Blood-Oozing-Gloves' works, and other 'Stone-Pyramids-Sized' crimes, to and against their utterly helpless and ultra-victimized peoples, .. they just Do, in tens of cases, and with very little resistances and very small delays.
They have literally succumbed and surrendered themselves and their God-given peoples and countries and their national wealths to the Sprayers Of Poisoned-Drugs-And-Gene-Engineered-Viruses : The Depopulating Blood-Shedding "Glovalists".
Many of us, previously, were not aware that "Glovalization" was actually a "Secret-Super-Weapon", and a "Killing-Fields-Opener", by which THE IN-SHADOWS INFRA-BLACK-EVIL “NEO-IMPERIALIST” LUCIFER’S WORSHIPERS AND FREE-MASONS Would Be Able To Thrust And Implement Their Horrible Population-Reduction Agendas And Programmes, AGAINST ARAB AND SEMI-ARAB PEOPLES ...
The Last Horrifying Massacres in Syria and Egypt Are Call-Crying, so that we notice that we HAVE TO CONCENTRATE AND COOPERATE TO SAVE MILLIONS OF INNOCENT ARAB AND SEMI-ARAB PEOPLES, FROM THE BUTCHERY OF A DEVIL-WORSHIPING MAJOR MILITARY POWER.
You All Arabs and Semi-Arabs have to become aware, and this hour and this minute, that for Tens of Years There Had Been, And There Still Are, Secret-Gangs Of The Most Degraded Kinds Of Humanity, .. like “The Illuminati” and “The Bilderberg” and “The Club Of Rome”, who plan, train, work, and spend, to Inaugurate A Satanic “World State”, in which the Good Laws And Orders Of God Are Not Respected And Not In-Effect. They want an Evil Anarchic “Global State” where they can ‘SWIM FREELY IN AN OCEAN OF SINS’. Their Ethically-Unrestricted “THINK-TANKS” had produced Some Tremendously Heavy Bulk Of Literature on their Horrendous ways and Frightening goals. In addition to their so-called Scientific Research Papers and Conference Entry-Files and ‘Studies’ of the Alleged “Non-Governmental Organizations”, there are also many Published-To-People Books, and of these you can find some famous ones, that were masqueradingly moulded into the forms of ‘Science-Fiction’ Novels, like : "Nineteen Eighty-Four", "Brave New World" and "Fahrenheit 451". Nowadays there are many ‘Lecturers’, and sometimes ‘Screamers’, on that utterly risky and threatening subject, like : Ron Paul, Christopher Monckton, Alex Jones, Jesse Ventura, … etc. They warn us against 'some' bad plots of the “ELITE-GLOBALISTS”, and their related Major Crimes, but this doesn’t mean that all those seemingly Anti-New-World-Order ‘Lecturers’ and ‘Screamers’, are Totally On Our Side, in the Arab-and-Semi-Arab World, and the Third-World in general. Such First-World 'Thinkers' usually have their "Agendas" too.
BRIEFLY BEHOLD : There are past/current plans that are set for so many Arab and Arab-Like Countries, to Destroy their Independences, and then “Annex” them one by one into the emerging Evil, Rogue, Tyrannical And Oligarchy-Run ‘Global Empire’.
Get A Clear Picture by Becoming Well-Informed FROM the Tongues of the Rightly-Educated and the Logic-Graspers, amongst the Injured and the Endangered : Syrians, Îraaqis, Egyptians, Palestinians, Pakistanis, Yamanis, Libyans, Afghanis, Somaalis, Baĥrainis, Tunisians, Indonesians, Sudanese, Nigerians, …etc., About What Is Actually On-Going And Pending To-Go Now Against Them And Their Countries, And NOT FROM the 'Pages', 'Screens' And 'Microphones' of the Externally-Controlled Seemingly-Official and Secretly-Official Media of these ASIAN And AFRICAN Countries.
BE ALERTED : ALL ARAB AND ARAB-LIKE PEOPLES AND SOILS AND THEIR OIL-DEPOSITS AND OIL-REFINERIES AND OIL-EXPORTING SEA-PORTS Are, Of course, Not Exempted From The Aforementioned Red-Blood-Splashing Infra-Black Plots Of The “Free-Masonic” Lucifer-Followers, Who Are Still Advertising For Their 'Over-Drugged/Ultra-Lunatic' NEW WORLD DIS-ORDER. These 'Beyond-Nefarious-Plots' had been, and still and already are, being ruthlessly implemented and executed, by the Treacherous Gloval-Global Agents, Who are Heading and are Inside the NEW WORLD DIS-ORDER "Puppet-Regimes" Of : Syria, Îraaq, Egypt, Palestine, al-Yaman, al-Paakistan, Yamanis, Libyans, Afghanistan, al-Somaal, al-Baĥrain, Tunisia, Indonesia, Sudan, Nigeria, …etc.
And That’s Why We Should Start To Approach Allah And Ask Him For His Rescue, And Expose And Exhibit Our Enemies Bloody-Greedy Ambitions Right Away, To The All Of Our Minds. And That Is Instead Of Just Helping Them By Exposing And Exhibiting Ourselves And Our Dearlings In The Streets, Roads, Squares And Piazzas, To The Hazards Of The Glovalists-Globalists-Weaponry. The Brutal Kinds Of The Manufactured-And-Delivered-For-Us-Weaponry Include : Unmanned Aero-Drones, Guided-Rockets, 'Smart' Bombs, 'Dumb' Bombs, Sniper Bullets, Spikes, Long Knives And Daggers, Biological Vapours Containing Viral/Bacteial/Fungal Agents, Poisonous/Carcinogenic Chemical Gases, Intoxicating/Drugging Vapours And Gases, … etc.
