despicable Alawites, either you renounce Al-Assad, or else Syria will
become your graveyard. Enough of your silence, enough killing of Sunnis.
From this day on, we will not remain silent. An eye for an eye, and
a tooth for a tooth.
I swear that if you do

will not be silent. The entire world condemns you. We will turn Syria
into the graveyard of the Alawites, if they do not stop the killing.
Long live Syria. Down

From this day on, you will see what we Sunnis are made of.
