Press Release about the Humanitarian Assistance Response Plan for Syria 19 January 2013

The Syrian Coalition (SC) appreciates all efforts to provide aid and assistance to the needy of the Syrian people, especially in the difficult times they are experiencing for nearly two years now. The decision to allocate the amount of $ 519 million for Syrians inside Syria, as part of the Humanitarian Assistance Response Plan launched by the United Nations on 19 December 2012, is one the most important of those efforts; however, the coalition expresses its deep concern about the management of this aid, or whether it reaches the real needy inside Syria.

The plan* states that it aims at "supporting the Government of Syria’s efforts in providing humanitarian assistance to the affected populations," and that a “Steering Committee” will be “chaired by the Vice-Minister for Foreign Affairs and Expatriates (or whomever he delegates)" and that “The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates is the [Syrian] Government focal point in charge of the supervision of implementation of humanitarian projects" in addition to other administrative and logistical tasks!

The SC sees a clear contradiction in dealing with the Syrian regime as a legitimate government doing its job like any other government, at the same time that the United Nations and its various institutions issues reports holding the regime responsible for the serious deterioration of the humanitarian situation in Syria, including the current government that was assigned by the head of the regime based on his interests! The SC wonders how it can be committed to neutrality if it doesn’t have an independent decision? Is it logical to provide aid to a regime responsible for destroying cities, bombing hospitals and bakeries and displacing population, so it can fix the dire situation it had created!

Moreover, preliminary results of the assessment conducted by the Aid Coordinating Unit (ACU) last weeks show an almost complete inability to deliver the aid provided by the United Nations or other international organizations to the northern regions through Damascus. What was delivered hardly covers ten percent of the original need, taking in consideration that more than ten million people live in those areas, ie. nearly half the population of Syria.

The ACU of the Syrian Coalition is working on providing aid to all Syrian people without distinction or discrimination, and confirms its commitment to humanitarian laws and international conventions in this regard. The SC expects to receive the help and support pledged by the States that have recognized it, and fulfil their promises through supporting the ACU to assist it in assuming the tasks expected from it.

The SC also demands that the humanitarian aid to the widows and orphans, the hungry, wounded and displaced in Syria, should not be delivered to them through the same party that caused their suffering and pain, for it would be an added humiliation and degradation.

      Basher is killing the people of Syria. He is destroying the life's of the Syrian people while the entire world watches thousands being killed, by their own government. The fact that no country has not taken much action to stop the bloodshed makes me wonder what that means for the future of other countries. Is the United States and its allies going to allow chaos to erupt again, and still do nothing about it?

      This UN proposal just indicates how corrupt the UN funding application process already is. The Arab Red Crescent in Syria, have already made statements to say that they have had 95% of their financial aid donated to them through the International Red Cross, robbed from them, by the Assad regime with many of their personnel personally targeted and assassinated by the Assad regime thugs. This means that for the UN to even consider to accept a proposal from the Assad regime, will never see the light of day, let alone be even distributed to the Syrian Arab Red Crescent, which the Assad mafia family would like to use as their 'front' to attempt to extort money from the UN.

      This means this bid is simply only a means for which those same corrupt mafia criminals already responsible for murder of the Syrian Arab Red Crescent personnel, to attempt to extort even more money, using the Arab Red Crescent as a front. If the Assad regime are responsible for assassination already of humanitarian aid workers in their own country, then that therefore proves, that it is highly implausible for anyone from the the Red Crescent, let alone anyone else suffering from the humanitarian crisis in Syria to benefit from this UN bid. For the UN to even consider this proposal therefore would be highly hypocritical and evidence of the lack of accountability that demonstrates the ease with which criminal regimes can profit from the apparatus of the UN.

      The UN accounting departments, have to be accountable to the real people of Syria, in need, and also to the memory of members of the Red Crescent who have already been targetted and assassinated by the Assad mafia family regime, who were prevented from doing their job of providing humanitarian assistance and to those who have stated clearly that the Assad mafia thugs have already robbed 95% of financial aid that the Syrian Red Crescent have received.

      Instead of feeding the greed of mass murdering mafia war criminals responsible for mass murder in their own countries, therefore, I hope this proposal is rejected, for the good of the Syrian people, who really are in need, and to prevent the shame of criminal negligence, fraud, and criminal sponsorship of criminal regimes, that it would represent for the UN funding departments, to even consider to look at this bid.
