She's not one of the 100 wealthiest Arab women in the world, nor is she one of the 100 most influential women, but Suheir Atassi has become a symbol of the Syrian rebellion. Whenever the tragic events across the border finally end and a new government arises, Atassi will undoubtedly play a role.
Atassi hasn't rested a moment since the uprising began. She gives speeches, provides explanations, writes incessantly on her Facebook page, responds to every development, flies to Washington and Turkey, and appears in uniform alongside the commander of the Free Syrian Army. And last month she was chosen as one of the vice presidents of the National Coalition for Syrian Revolutionary and Opposition Forces, also known as the Syrian National Coalition.
This makes her the most powerful woman in the political opposition. In a war where women and children pay the steepest price, most members of the country's opposition are men. In the revolutions in Egypt and Tunisia, women played a key role in demonstrations and in front of the television cameras. But in Syria, a place of battlefields instead of protests, women are rarely at the front.
The most tragic tales of the civil war are described by men. Meanwhile, in the refugee camps, women are raped or sold as *** slaves in Arab countries; they disappear from the opposition organizations.
Last month, a woman's revolutionary council was established to help get women involved "in light of male monopolization of the political arena and the ousting of women from political activity," according to the council.

DAMASCUS, Dec. 31 — Syrian troops arrested four Turkish fighter pilots near a military airport in the northern province of Aleppo, a pro-government daily said Monday.
The guarding troops of the Koerc military airport arrested four Turkish officers who were trying to sneak into the airport with an armed group, al-Watan said, giving no further details about the fate of the Turkish pilots but saying that the incident came to explicitly implicate Turkey.
Also in Aleppo, the paper said more than 100 armed men were killed when the Syrian air force bombarded the Finance Directorate in al-Sufaira town, where the armed men had been gathering.
In the central province of Homs, army units targeted armed groups’ positions in al-Rastan town, killing scores of them, al- Watan said, adding that violence and clashes have renewed in the Yarmouk camp for Palestinian refugees in the capital Damascus between local committees and armed rebels.
Meanwhile, opposition activists reported shelling on many hotspots nationwide by the Syrian army on Monday.
France does not support any extremist Sunny fraction in the ME.I really can't understand why the US and other western countries are making the same mistakes all over again. Why for God's sake are western countries supporting extremist Sunny fractions in the Middle East?
But in the typical stupid and shortsighted politician fashion (I'm not referring to France specifically here, but the West in general), I guess that anything can be "corrected" with additional bombing. So what if with our (political & financial) help Syria fell to the islamists and become an Al-Qaeda breeding ground, we will just bomb them five or ten years from now, which will magically solve the problem...
About Turkish pilots issue,seriously EPIC,i can understand if they said special forces,commandos etc. but PILOTS.
If they captured Turkish pilots they would give info about their ID without thinking a second,seems some dudes are seeing dream.
Turkey denies reports on Turkish pilots arrested in Syria
