Syria paying price of backing resistance: Opinion Poll

Majority of the respondents to a Press TV survey believe that the main reason behind attacks against Syria is the country’s support for the anti-Israeli resistance front.

The survey, conducted from July 20 to July 29, indicates that nearly 58 percent (7,096 people) of the 12191 participants were of the opinion that as Syria is part of the axis of resistance to Israel, it has been the target of growing attacks. 

According to the poll, nearly 27 percent (3,302 people) of the respondents
attributed the escalation of attacks against Damascus to Syria’s independence from the US and its regional allies to .

Nearly 10 percent of those surveyed (1,250 people) said attacks against Syria have recently intensified because the Syrian government does not represent its people. 

Meanwhile, 5 percent of those polled (543 people) linked government’s failure to implement political reforms to the recent escalation of unrest in Syria. 

It should be mentioned that 21.9 percent of the respondents were from the US, 11.1 percent from Canada, 4.4 percent from England and 62.6 percent from other countries. 

Syria has been experiencing unrest since March 2011 and many people, including large numbers of security forces, have been killed in the turmoil. 

The Syrian government says outlaws, saboteurs, and armed terrorists are the driving factor behind the unrest and deadly violence while the opposition accuses the security forces of being behind the killings. 

Damascus also says that the chaos is being orchestrated from outside the country and the security forces have been given clear instructions not to harm civilians.

Dear PM, Once more for next budget 2013?

TELAH DI HANTAR SBG MSG DLM FB Mohd Najib Abdul Razak pada 8 July 2012.

Assalamualaikum wrt: 
Dato Seri PM & Menteri Kewangan Malaysia.

Kebanyakan potongan/ pengecualian cukai buat bagi gulungan OKU yang ada sekarang adalah pembelanjaan berbentuk 1off sahaja seperti pembelian kerusi roda dan untuk golongan OKU berduit/berharta seperti pembelian kereta.

Sedangkan di antara kami ramai yang perlukan bantuan berterusan seperti untuk perbelanjaan perubatan secara tradisional selain daripada bantuan untuk belanja makan minum dan kehidupan harian serta persekolahan/pendidikan anak-anak.

Anak-anak yang membantu kami ada bebanan sendiri seperti menjelaskan hutang PTPTN yang juga tidak mendapat potongan/pengecualian cukai.

Dengan demikian saya syorkan, sekali lagi, cadangan seperti dalam surat di bawah yang telah di kemukan kepada Dato Seri beberapa tahun dahulu dan setiap kali datangnya musim membuat bujet.
