Syria has been suspended from the Arab League. At an emergency meeting in Cairo Saturday, the Arab League agreed to expel Syria from the Arab League over the ongoing government crackdown on Syrian citizens. 

On November 2, Syria agreed to a peace plan from the Arab League, which required President Assad to withdraw tanks and security forces from cities, begin talks with opposition members and release political prisoners (The Arab League estimates there are a staggering 70,000 political prisoners in Syria.)

One day after the Syrian government accepted the deal, dozens of civilians were killed in the city of Homs. Activists said an additional 19 people were killed by tank shelling in a nearby district. 

The Arab League - suspending the country over its lack of progress towards the brokered peace deal - also agreed to impose economic and political sanctions.

More than 250 people have been killed in just the past 11 days in Syria, according to Human Rights Watch.

The UN says over 3,500 people have been killed in Syria since anti-government protests began in March.

Two callers called a Shiekh in a Religious show today1-  A Syrian, who asks the Shiekh; “I’f I’m fed bullets in my body does that break my fasting ? 2-  A Somali, who asks the Shiekh ; “If  I’m fasting but can’t break my fast due to no food available to me, does my fasting count ?
The Shiekh broke down in tears when both these questions were asked.
If you have food in your  table Thank God and think of others, If you are safe in your home Thank  God for the safety of the house and the roof above you, think of the  refugees in Turkey going by the thousands from Syria after being invaded  by tanks, and the Somali refugees walking 3000 meters to get to Kenya  refugee camps.
SubhanAllah wAlhamdulillah wAllahuAkbar
