Caution: Graphic Images from Syria

It is the duty of every Muslim
to protect the oppressed.

Huffington Post: Syria

Narrated Anas: Allah's Apostle said, "Help your brother, whether he is an oppressor or he is an oppressed one. People asked, "O Allah's Apostle! It is all right to help him if he is oppressed, but how should we help him if he is an oppressor?" The Prophet said, "By preventing him from oppressing others." 

Doing nothing 
is like being an accomplice 
to the crime.

“…if any one slew a person - unless it be for murder or for spreading mischief in the land - it would be as if he slew the whole people: and if any one saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of the whole people.
(Quran 5:32)

And the believers, men and women, are protecting friends of one another, they enjoin the right and forbid the wrong.
(Quran 9:71)

The ummah is like a body,
when one limb is harmed,
the entire body responds.

Muhammad, peace be upon him, said, "You will see the believers in their mutual kindness, love and sympathy just like one body.  When a limb complains, the whole body responds to it with wakefulness and fever."
(Muslim and Bukhari)
