The Syrian Revolution: Another Madness to Bring the Sharia Law

by U.S. Backs Wahhabist Extremists Thursday, Dec. 27, 2012 at 11:16 PM

The so-called Syrian Revolution is being led by Wahhabist extremists against the rational secular government of Bashar al-Assad. The U.S. backed Wahhabists are seeking to overthrow the stable government of al-Assad to further escalate tensions between Iran and Israel. Once again U.S. foreign policy is in the same filthy gutter of deception where the GW Bush regime left off. Some change, eh?

This isn't new info, just trying to counteract corporate media propaganda;

Posted on February 29 - 2012

by The Truth about Syria

"The so-called “Arab Spring” uprisings were arguably the most significant events of the last 12 months. Protests are still raging across the region, even after regimes were toppled. Many observers say that these protests brought no improvement to the region but economic and political instability. However the worst thing they brought seems to be the “Sharia law” as the last elections in Egypt and Tunisia showed, and as the events in Libya went.

When we talk about the “Sharia Law” and the “Arab Spring”, the so-called “Syrian Revolution” is no exception. While the Syrian government itself is known to be secular, Syria lacks an effective secular opposition that can bring some positive changes and developments to the political life in the country.

There are secular opponents or individuals, but there is no effective secular groups or parties within the opposition. Those secular individuals unfortunately seem either singing outside the flock or living in an ivory tower.

The Syrian opposition is mainly dominated by the Muslim Brotherhood, and the other parties in the opposition have no real weight. The Syrian Muslim brotherhood inspired by the success of their peers in Egypt and Tunisia are trying nowadays to bring the same negative change.

The so-called “Syrian National Council” is not actually a good example that any national opposition may want to follow, however they describe themselves as a team of experts, technocrats, and political figures!!!! But in fact they are a bunch of traitors, terrorists and outlaws.

For example the terrorist sheikh “Anas Aerout” is a member in that council. This bastard issued many fatwas that resulted several deaths in the city of Banyas among both the civilians and military personnel, let us just remember what happened to “Niadal Ali Jannoud“.

Terrorist sheikh Anas Aerout

Aerout himself also supervised the torture of many Syrian soldiers who were kidnapped by the terrorists in Banyas, yet they chose him as a representative in that “Democratic” and “free” council!

The council is just a cover for the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood terrorist organization, and the other members are just for public relations and prestige. The brotherhood members are controlling the council and using it to implement their dirty agenda.

I will list some of these terrorists:

Terrorist sheikh Murshid Al-Khaznawi – From Al-Hasaka, lives in Fredrikstad, Norway

Terrorist sheikh Mohammed Yasser Almosadi – From Homs, lives in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia

Terrorist Mohamad Bassam Yusef – From Damascus, lives in the UK

Terrorist Molham Al Drobi – From Homs, lives in Toronto, Canada

Terrorist Amir Alkadrou – from Deir Ezzor, lives in Istanbul, Turkey

Terrorist Firas Qassas – from Idleb, lieve in Berlin, Germany

I will finish this animal-show with a terrorist who reminds me of a homeless dog I used to see in my village.

Terrorist Muhydin Lazkani – From Idleb, lives in London, UK

No need to tell that their ugly disgusting faces promise of a Wahhabi terrorist Syria under the Western umbrella.

As you see, the Western states are harboring terrorists. It is a direct violation of the international law. We have the right to use whatever means to arrest these terrorists or kill them. We have the right to sue the Western states that clearly don’t care about the international law. They are supporting terrorism on our land and introducing the terrorists as freedom fighters, while the true resistance organizations such as Hezbollah are forbidden in the west.

We also have to refer to those people who support the so-called “National Council”, they are basically extremists who have been raised to hate. Religious hatred is their everyday food and most of them are not educated (after the elementary school which they have to attend as the Syrian law states), essentially all what they know they learned in the mosques from sheikhs who are not necessarily good men.

For example the Syrian national council has some support in Idleb countryside, while it lacks this support in the city itself, it is clear that the education plays the big role here.

Check the video blow, what are you going to see didn’t ‘t happen in Afghanistan or the tribal regions in Pakistan. It actually happened in the town of Binsh in Idleb countryside. The Syrian terrorists inspired by their fellows in Libya raised Al-Qaeda flag to express publicly their terrorist beliefs.

What kind of revolution that claims to demand freedom while at the same time raises Al-Qaeda flag !?

We posted before a translation of the Muslim Brotherhood statement about the so-called “Syrian Revolution”. The statement is disgusting and entirely depends on hatred preaches to incite people to protest against the government, and of course the promise of the long-awaited “Sharia law” was not absent.

So, this is it how the Syrian opposition especially its Islamic wing operates. They try so hard in every occasion to ignite the religious hatred among the different sects in Syria. Their goal is simply to make permanent cracks in the Syrian society through which they can snake and seize power.

This is actually how the demonstrations started mid-March in the border city of Daraa, backed up by the ِArabic and Western media. They keep saying that the demonstrations were spontaneous and they just demanded freedom and came as a first reaction for “the torture of kids by the Syrian security”.

Yes, the Syrian opposition always claimed that the demonstrations started in Daraa when the Syrian security arrested and tortured a group of children. It is just a big lie. What kind of information would a group of kids provide the Syrian security with!? also we all know that it is too easy to intimidate a child and no need to use violence.

Check this article (especially the second half of it) so you can see how the Syrian opposition got their footage about the alleged torture, and how they in general fabricate news about Syria in order to tarnish the image of the Syrian government.

Here is also another proof that this “Uprising” was never spontaneous. The photo below has been used as the profile picture of the “Syrian Revolution” Facebook page on 17.01.2012 when the liars celebrated the first anniversary of that page.

In case they kept the photo, you can find it under this link. If they didn’t, the image above is a snapshot.

The funny thing is that they wrote on the photo: “15-March uprising”, and above this “15-March” they wrote: “18-1 our revolution completed its first year”!! How exactly completed!? How can it be a spontaneous revolution if it was being prepared for months before, even the Facebook page was created two months before the start of the so-called “spontaneous revolution”. How did they exactly manage to swallow these two months, just to make it spontaneous!?

It is not a spontaneous revolution as they claimed, it is a pre-planned terrorist act.

In the video below, you will listen to one of the “Syrian Revolution” leaders in the city of Daraa, his name is sheikh “Abd Al-Salam Al-Khalili”.

He used in his preaches to incite his followers and those who pray behind him against the government. But in this preach he revealed a new talent. The hatred against other sects especially the Druzes who live in the neighboring province. He said that their women are whores and half-naked, but I say: the shoe of every Druze woman has an honor thousand times more than he has.

The so-called “Syrian Revolution” started originally in the mosques by sheikhs who incited their followers against the government. By sheikhs I mean here of course “disturbed sheikhs” and unfortunately they are so many.

Daraa was no exception, the demonstrations in other cities such as Jablah started in the same way.

The scums in Jablah decided that the scums in Daraa are not better than them, so why the hell should they refrain from protesting?

Their sheikh is called “Ayman Kassam”, just another stupid who should have a reserved place in some mental facility rather than some mosque. Ayman Kassam was jealous of Al-Khalili, the the stupid sheikh we talked about in the previous video.

So, this is how the scums started their demonstrations everywhere. They were all driven by religious hatred. They demanded only one freedom, to be free from law and from morals.

In Daraa they attacked the Druze and in Jablah they attacked the Shiites (the Alawites included).

Look also how they carried sticks and blades, and how they seemed determined to slaughter everyone who will stop their demonstration as their sheikh ordered them, yet they claimed that it was peaceful!!!

What type of revolution is this? A disgusting revolution of course.

The Syrian protesters and rebels don’t really know anything about freedom or human rights. They are a bunch of thugs and barbarians who just want to live in the wilds away from civilization and free from any law. Those protesters know nothing about patriotism and loyalty to homeland, they are only loyal to sheikhs such as Yousuf Al-Qardawi and Adnan Al-Arour, sheikhs who promote hatred and sectarian conflicts.

In the video below you will see clips from:

A demonstration in “Bab Amro” quarter in the city of Homs, where the protesters chanted the slogan:

“Peaceful. Peaceful. Until the annihilation of all Alawites”.

A demonstration in the city of Homs, where the protesters chanted the slogan:

“We will say it clear. We don’t want to see any Alawites”.

A demonstration in “Al-Khalideyyah” quarter in the city of Homs, where the protesters chanted the slogan:

“The folks want Adnan Al-Arour”

A demonstration in Jabal Al-Zayeah in Idleb, where the protesters chanted the slogan:

“It is too soon master Al-Arour! don’t give up. Our revolution is better than OK. Thank you thank you Wisal TV”

PS: Wisal TV is a Wahhabi TV channel that is very well known of attacking and insulting the other sects.

A demonstration in the city of Jablah, where the protesters chanted the slogan:

“Master Al-Arour! Don’t care about any thing. We are your men and we are ready to drink blood when you order us.”

A demonstration in the city of Hama, where the protesters chanted the slogan:

“Salute sheikh Qardaqwi salute!”.

Here is another video for pro-Sharia demonstrations, you can see clips from:

A demonstration in the city of Hama, where the protesters chanted the slogans:

“Salute Qardawi salute.” and “Salute Arour Salute.”.

A demonstration in Al-Khaledeyyah quarter in the city of Homs, where the protesters chanted the slogan:

“The folks want Adnan Al-Arour”

A demonstration in the city of Hama, where the protesters chanted the slogan:

“It is too soon master Al-Arour! don’t give up. Hama’s men are your men.

Say to the Shabbiha, the people of Hama are slaughters.”

A demonstration in Daraa, where the protesters chanted the slogan:

“It is too soon master Al-Arour! don’t give up. Daraa will rebel against the government.”

The hatred slogans and extremism of the Syrian protesters didn’t stop at this point, may be the Wahhabism led them to attack the Alawites directly and more than the others. However the people of Aleppo, Damascus and Al-Raqa also got their shares from the hatred, and they were harshly attacked by the protesters in their slogans. The Syrian protesters couldn’t also keep the Christians away. Here is a clip from a demonstration that took place in Al-Dublan quarter in the city of Homs. The protesters chanted the slogan:

“The religion of Muhammad is the religion of pride and dignity. The religion of Jesus is the religion of dance and shaking.”

As you see in the videos, the Syrian protesters are basically loyal to sheikhs, I mean here bad sheikhs, and I refer in specific to Adnan Al-Arour who is the godfather of the Syrian revolution. Whatever he orders them they obey without hesitation.

Adnan Al-Arour is a Syrian sheikh from the city of Hama. He lives right now in Saudi Arabia, the capital of terrorism in our world. He appears regularly on Wisal and Safa, the disgusting Wahhabi TVs where he spreads his hatred preaches.

Terrorist sheikh Adnan Al-Arour

Al-Arour didn’t spare anyone who opposed the madness called “the Syrian Revolution”, he repeatedly insulted the people of Damascus, Aleppo and Al-Raqa. He also promised the Alawites to be chopped and fed to dogs. Listen to the terrorist in this video:

Let us also consider another issue, the Syrian revolution is a “Friday-Revolution”, they used to gather themselves, attend the Friday prayers then go out to bark and protest. Each Friday had its own name; so let us take a look at one of these names:

Friday 13.May.2011: They called it “The Friday of Al-Harayer”. Al-Harayer is of course an ancient Arabic word; You can translate it as “The soft women” or sometimes as the “Free women”. However this is not the way this word has been used during history.

Needles to say that some “gangs” controlled the Islamic empire many years after prophet Muhammad’s death in the age of the royal families. They employed the concept of “Slavery” as if it is an Islamic principle, while in fact slavery entirely contradicts the principles of Islam. They began to invade other nations and enslave their people. They used to call any woman that has not been enslaved as “Harirah” or “Hurrah” and the plural is “Harayer”, these women used to wear the Islamic veil, while the enslaved were not allowed to wear that veil, so it was so easy to distinguish between the “Free” and the “Enslaved”. The Syrian terrorists used this ancient slavery-related word in order to refer to their women whom they consider to be free. Actually their women are being treated like trash, and without the Syrian laws they would be enslaved exactly like the women in Saudi.

If you once listened to the Syrian protesters: They throw a bomb then chant”Allah Akbar”. They cut off the heads then chant “Allah Akbar”. Every thing they do will be followed by “Allah Akbar” slogan, may be even after they ****.

They chant the slogan and I bet that they don’t know what it means. When a Muslim (a true Muslim) chants “Allah Akbar”, it means that the God is the greatest and the God will protect him (the Muslim), but the Islamists and Wahhabis don’t understand it that way. They actually consider the God as a weak creature who needs them to defend him and even call for Jihad to protect him, so he is great as much as they decide, not great in his essence.

These rebels have no civil culture, just some twisted religious crap, and they invested it very well in the Syrian revolution.

Look at the crap they believe in, here is a video in which they claim that an angel fell from the sky and carried one of their alleged martyrs.

Take also a look at the crap they used as description for the video:

Who is the one who was wearing the white dress, and walked in front of the security forces and “Shabbiha” while someone was shouting “pull him” “pull him”. None could take a step, only this man that dressed in white (the clothes of the believers in paradise) walked very confident in front of the murderers and then carried with only one hand the martyr (the martyr is Diaa Al-Najjar from the city of Homs) and delivered his body to his family.

More than a half million views on the video and 744 likes. That equals double the number of views on the 170 videos in my YouTube channel.

They are simply a bunch of stupid low-life nomads who still live in the middle ages.

The concept of Jihad has been always present either with the Syrian protesters slogans or in the preaches of their leading-sheikhs.

In many demonstrations the protesters chanted Jihad-related slogans, including direct calls to fight.

In this video they claim that it is a funeral, but usually in Syria we don’t sing in funerals. The singer chants: “What does the Syrian people want?”. The herds answer him: “The people want to declare Jihad”.

The Syrian opposition also called for Jihad in its demonstrations outside Syria, like what happened in Egypt, the new promised paradise of Sharia law.

Here they are in a demonstration in front of the Syrian embassy – former embassy – in Cairo. Move to the moment 01:09 to hear them chanting calls for Jihad.

Another video of the demonstration in front of the Syrian embassy in Cairo. Just take a look at the black placard that appears at the moment 03:32, they wrote on it: “The people want to declare Jihad”.

The so-called “Syrian Revolution” attracted every extremist in this world. Extremists who have been given the freedom to declare publicly their hatred beliefs in states such as Egypt , Libya and Tunisia. However the fever didn’t stay within the states of the so-called “Arab Spring” where the Islamists took power, it actually spread worldwide. We witnessed the extremists in Europe, US and Australia showing their support for the terrorists in Syria under the sight of the local authorities there.

I can even say – from an experience – that specific states such as Germany opened the door widely for the extremists to attack the Syrian government. The German authorities even harassed the pro-government Syrians who still live in Germany, and tolerated the aggressions carried out by opponents against the Syrian community that supports the president.

From the very beginning of the unrest many sheikhs issued fatwas for Jihad against the Syrian army such as Anas Al-Aerot from Banyas in April 2011. There were also calls for Jihad in many mosques in Damascus countryside like what happened in Al-Muadameha.


Other evidence points to the continued false flag operation "al Queda" that is in fact the CIA created evil terrorists that exist to spread fear and continued support of the U.S. military-industrial complex. After all, if it wasn't for those pesky terrorists how could we justify the billions of tax dollars spent on military weapons contractoers?

"The US agenda of proxy wars and fake revolutions in Syria are pointed to one end: to eliminate oppositional forces who have any potential of disrupting the global takeover of the Elite.

Al-Qaeda, the CIA funded Boogeyman, has been aiding and encouraging the Free Syrian Army (FSA); even in so far as recruiting more members to fuel the “political transition” of Assad out of power in his own country.

The FSA are not just tied to al-Qaeda, the fake Islamic terrorist group, they ARE al-Qaeda. In a video of members of the FSA, these men are brandishing AK-47s provided to them by the CIA and have al-Qaeda flags flying in the background.

Members of FSA openly admit they are fighting for al-Qaeda. Abu Khuder, militant in the FSA explains : “We have clear instructions from our [al-Qaeda] leadership that if the FSA need our help we should give it. We help them with IEDs and car bombs. Our main talent is in the bombing operations.”

Abu Thuha (a pseudonym) is an al-Qaeda operative who claims that “we have experience now fighting the Americans, and more experience now with the Syrian revolution. Our big hope is to form a Syrian-Iraqi Islamic state for all Muslims, and then announce our war against Iran and Israel, and free Palestine.”

As the fighting forces of the FSA are “new” to this proxy “revolutionary” war, they lean on al-Qaeda “experience in these military activities and it knows how to deal with it.”

Al-Qaeda’s role in FSA is to provide more than leadership, but become psychologically entangled in these young minds so that their mission is not deterred at any cost. The use of religion and discipline are tactics that keep the men in line and ready to kill or be killed for the cause of the US government.

Khuder says: “al-Qaeda goal is establishing an Islamic state and not a Syrian state. Those who fear the organization fear the implementation of Allah’s jurisdiction. If you don’t commit sins there is nothing to fear.”

While the ground troops are being coerced by al-Qaeda, NATO is becoming a more active presence in the convoluted mess of “freedom fighters” that seem to only have global Elite schemes in mind.

The Obama administration is focusing on increasing aid to the Free Syrian Army and other oppositional factions to facilitate a forced regime change in Syria.

Andrew Tabler, a Syria expert at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, admits that the US government “[is] looking at the controlled demolition [of the Syrian government]. But like any controlled demolition, anything can go wrong.”

The Pentagon have been plotting and overseeing terrorist activities in Syria as the campaign for regime change marches on. Along with NATO and French Special Forces, the US government has been placing strategic measures to make sure terrorism is carried out in Syria.

The globalists at the RAND Corporation admit that “al-Qaeda has conducted roughly two dozen attacks, primarily against Syrian security service targets. Virtually all have been suicide attacks and car bombings, and they have resulted in more than 200 deaths and 1,000 injuries.”

James Quinlivan, senior operations research analyst at the RAND Corporation, a globalist front for Elite agendas, regarding Syrian chemical weapons, claims that “calibration is a big deal for these things. While mustard [gas] lasts amazingly well, nerve agents do not. For nerve gases, particularly sarin, retention relies on purity, and this must be tested.”

More propaganda surrounding the framing of Syria surfaced in Austria’s Kronen Zeitung wherein a Photoshopped picture of a supposed war torn Aleppo masked a man walking with his child in his arms.

The picture was enhanced because the Syrian family in the photo “merely fleeing a city ravaged by guns and mortars apparently isn’t quite dramatic enough on its own.”

Meanwhile the Turkish army is conducting “staged tank exercises” at the Syrian border where military is deployed. While the mainstream media claim that none of the Turkish military forces will be added to the FSA and oppositional terrorists in Syria, more than 25 tanks were involved in practicing for war.

Turkey, who is a NATO member, has been setting up areas for training camps for the CIA to create more members of FSA, provide intelligence and military weaponry before sending them over the border to assist in the regime change.

Tayyip Erdogan, the Turkish Prime Minister, has been working with the US government in attempting to “hand over Assad”.

The global Elite have decided that the US State Department and the Syrian National Council will control Syria . As of now, they are involved in a strategic divide and conquer mission. In the future, as Hillary Clinton, Secretary of State, has stated , the geopolitical objective is to turn fake humanitarian efforts by the UN’s Kofi Annan while establishing international mandate that will end in the globalist control over this region.

The false flag assertion of Syrian chemical weapons is giving the general public the necessary fuel to support the US/Israeli military attack of Syria.

It is being kept secret from the general public with the assistance of the MSM that the murder of Syrian civilians is being committed by the FSA under the direction of the CIA, the script being played out to keep Assad’s armies under foot with “little chance of turning defeat into victory.”


Of course we can count on some honesty from Dennis Kucinich;

"Congressman Kucinich Warns Of Al Qaeda False Flag In Syria"

Wednesday, August 22, 2012

"Representative Dennis Kucinich warns of Al Qaeda’s presence among the Syria rebels in damning editorial that warns Syria is ‘rife with potential for a false flag’

You’ve heard it from all across the alternative media and you’ve heard it from me repeatedly.

For many however, the fact remains they just don’t believe unless it comes out of the mouth of a government official or from a news source controlled by a mega-corporation.

For those people, this should be a real wake-up call for them as Congressman Kucinich has penned an editorial posted on the Huffington Post link to those corporate media news sources to warn about Al Qaeda Jihadists among the Syria rebels.

Perhaps the most impactful part of this article is the one liner where he bluntly states ‘This situation is rife with potential for a “false flag” operation.’

As I have repeatedly warned, it isn’t even about Al Qaeda being at work but the Jihadists who engaging in the purging of Christians in their mission to install a prophet who promises to chop up the bodies of the Alawites who remain and feed their remains to the dogs.

The US Is Backing Genocidal Christian Cleansing Terrorists In Syria

Syria rebels are fighting to bring a ‘prophet’ to power that has promised to feed the chopped up corpses of non-believers to the dogs and rid Jesus’s whore religion.

In the video below, the Voltaire network reports and substantiates their reports with actual chants of protest footage.

The NATO-supported Salafist terrorists are bringing about a revolution to put a prophet into power who is quoted as saying in the video that he promises all of the Alawites remaining after their victory will be chopped to pieces and feed to the gods.

In subsequent clips the protestors chant how their profit should be happy because they have started the revolution and “We are men who drink blood.” and how the mindless animals [non-muslims] are bad news for Syria, the Middle East, and humanity.

For more background see and substantiate of the shocking revelations in the video see:

I will continue reporting on it until we have sacked Syria and installed our a puppet human rights violating dictator in Syria so here it is from the Congressman his self.

Tilling the Ground for the Seeds of Terrorism

After more than 10 years of war against al Qaeda and the accompanying global “war on terrorism,” we have failed to learn that our actions create reactions. Our presence creates destabilization, then radicalization. Occupations create insurgencies. In Afghanistan, we have fueled the very insurgency we struggle to fight.

Al Qaeda had relatively little if any presence in Iraq prior to the U.S. invasion. The U.S. invasion and occupation of Iraq, and the subsequent destruction and violence, enabled al Qaeda to flourish. Al Qaeda and its affiliates are now conducting an accelerated campaign of relentless attacks and suicide bombings in Iraq.

Last year’s intervention in Libya is another example. The U.S. and its North Atlantic Treaty Organization allies spurred a civil war, taking sides despite persistent questions about the nature of the opposition. The war and the chaos that followed have allowed radical groups to gain another foothold.

In Syria, prominent leaders in western nations are trying to make the case for intervention, despite the fact that our own intelligence agencies do not know exactly what is transpiring on the ground or who is doing what to whom. We do know that the chaos has provided al Qaeda the opportunity to expand, as recently reported by The New York Times:

The evidence is mounting that Syria has become a magnet for Sunni extremists, including those operating under the banner of Al Qaeda…

Daniel Byman, a counterterrorism expert who is a professor at Georgetown University and a fellow at the Brookings Institution, said it is clear that al Qaeda is trying to become more active in Syria. As it has already done in Somalia and Mali, and before that in Chechnya and Yemen, the group is trying to turn a local conflict to its advantage.

Headlines in papers around the world eliminate any doubt. The Guardian: “Syria: Foreign jihadists could join battle for Aleppo” and “Al-Qaida turns tide for rebels in battle for eastern Syria.” The New York Times: “As Syrian War Drags On, Jihadists Take Bigger Role.” The Washington Post: “In Syria, group suspected of al-Qaeda links gaining prominence in war to topple Assad.”

Recently, despite the presence of extremist elements among the opposition, President Obama stated:

“We cannot have a situation in which chemical or biological weapons are falling into the hands of the wrong people… We have been very clear to the Assad regime, but also to other players on the ground, that a red line for us is we start seeing a whole bunch of chemical weapons moving around or being utilized.”

This situation is rife with potential for a “false flag” operation.

Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria — al Qaeda surfs instability created or supported by U.S. interventions. Al Qaeda is ready to exploit resentment toward the U.S. while capitalizing on the openings created by U.S. interventionism. As a result our U.S. tax dollars are being used to fuel the rise of extremism.

Have we learned nothing from the Soviet Union’s demise as a result of its adventure in Afghanistan? Will we continue to spend tax dollars to create even more U.S. enemies which will then be used to justify the expenditure of more U.S. tax dollars, thus setting the stage for an accelerated downward spiral for our economy and our own decline as a great power?"

Right now it feels like we are crying in the wind, our voices drowned out by the roar of corporate media and their masters in the military-industrial complex.

So many games does our beloved U.S. government play with our heads!!

Their mocking deception and false flag operations are being exposed to the light of day!!

Some day soon the military-industrial propagandandists will be the ones crying in the wind!!

"Are these your words with laughter

Is this your voice begging to be spared

Oh, you seemed so unassailable, you seemed so far away hey hey

Is this a voice begging to be spared

Is this your voice ?

Please, don't speak to me for a while."
