Reuters – Dec. 9, 2011: Syrians living in Jordan shout slogans during a demonstration against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad after Friday prayers in front of the Syrian Embassy in Amman.
BEIRUT – Syrian troops battled army defectors Sunday in clashes that left several military vehicles in flames.
The fighting and other violence around the nation killed at least five people, activists said.
For the first time, an act of violent protest against President Bashar Assad’s regime spilled across the border into Jordan, where about a dozen Syrians attacked their embassy Sunday in the capital, Amman, wounding at least two diplomats and four other consulate employees.
The 9-month-old uprising against Syria’s authoritarian President Bashar Assad has grown increasingly violent in recent months as once-peaceful protesters take up arms and rebel soldiers joining the uprising fight back against the army. The U.N. says more than 4,000 people have been killed since March.

A Connecticut dad has accused an industry giant in education, Scholastic, of delivering Occupy Wall Street propaganda to his 4th grade daughter in her school classroom.
The company’s response?
“We truly appreciate you taking the time to share your concerns with us and I made sure that staff in our corporate headquarters will see your comments. Again, thank you. We truly appreciate your support of Scholastic Book Clubs.”
The father, Edward, whose last name is being withheld so his daughter is not identified, told WND it was the standard, “We don’t care about your opinion” response that he expected.
But he said he’ll be pursuing the issue with his local school district.
The issue arose over the Scholastic News handout given to students and dated Dec. 5 and Dec. 12:
It describes the Occupy Wall Street movement, which has been tied to professional agitators linked to groups funded by billionaire radical George Soros.
