    OK, so who were the people massacred in Houla…a very important question, thats been ignored:

    BUT from blogger JOUD we learn:Joud ‏@Hey_JoudWatch from 0:57,1 of the revos admits the people killed in #Houle were pro regime yet says the govt killed them #Syria!/Hey_Joud

    Syrian Commando ✩ ‏@syriancommando
    The #AlHoulahMassacre was committed against pro-Assad families, confirmed by sources within #Syria, investigation = end of #FSA.

    Joud ‏@Hey_Joud
    @Ani0978 @pgraha3003 @RT_com @SaraFirth_RT Their neighbours were interviewed on Syria TV and they assured that they opposed the revolution.

    Joud ‏@Hey_Joud
    @pgraha3003 @RT_com @SaraFirth_RT The massacred were pro regime living in an FSA-controlled area, there was no presence of army whatsoever.

    Joud ‏@Hey_Joud
    @HebaNoori They were pro Assad in an anti Assad area, do the math if you have 2 brain cells.

    Joud ‏@Hey_Joud
    @HebaNoori Yeah but the area is controlled by the FSA, there’s 0 syrian army members there so obviously it wasn’t the army who did it

    Joud ‏@Hey_Joud
    @HebaNoori shelled but when you see the video you’ll know that knives were used to kill them and obviously the army doesn’t use knives.

    Joud ‏@Hey_Joud
    @HebaNoori living in an area controlled by the FSA with no presence of army or security forces whatsoever. the opposition claimed they were

    Joud ‏@Hey_Joud
    @HebaNoori Calm your hormones and listen to facts. The people massacred were from al Kurdy family and their relatives, they’re pro regime

    so if pro-govt,..the killers had to be anti-government
