As Syria seethes, protesters chant 'God is With Us'

Violence raged across the Syrian city of Hama as anti-government protesters in other cities took to the streets on Friday against the embattled regime.

Hama endured steady shelling and bombing Friday morning as the government's military offensive continued in full swing said a resident whose name is not being released for safety reasons. The man said casualties occurred.

Elsewhere, opposition members said thousands kicked off marches across the country after Muslim prayers, as they have every Friday for weeks. The theme of protests nationwide Friday was "God is With Us."

    Oppressed citizens all over the mid-east are fighting their subjugating regimes! It's their God given right to do so & to form a government that is by the people, for the people! It's sad many have to die, because the power in control aint giving up with out a fight! The citizens aren't either, it seems! They're right, the oppressive regime is wrong, & God (Allah) is with them! !

    there is opposition in Syria but there are millions of us that support our government and see their efforts to improve our country. Those armed groups should stop the violence in the name of freedom. Media, please be fair and not one sided.
