There is a small number of Syrian Refugees who are going to Iraq, but this is usually a movement in transit. Iraq is currently involved in much the same civil war that Syria is, so the people are not staying there.
If you count those staying in Iraqi Kurdistan, the number jumps quite substantially with roughly 250,000 registered.
The talles building in Syria is the Damascus Tower, located in downtown Damascus. Hence the name.
Syria and Israel are not fighting for territory, and at the present time (May 2011),
are not fighting at all. (The Syrian government has other, internal, things to worry
about right now.)
The last direct conflict between Israel and Syria took place in 1973, and the last time any territory passed from one to the other was in 1967.
Israeli forces captured the Golan Heights from Syria in 1967. That area was of interest
to Israel because it had become such a popular spot from which to launch rockets and
artillery upon Israeli farms in the valley below. That kind of behavior has been drastically
reduced since Syria was denied access to the Golan in 1967.
During the Yom Kippur War in 1973, Israeli forces penetrated to within 40 km of Damascus
(that's the capital of Syria), but took no additional territory. Syria has been content with
supplying and supporting its surrogates in Lebanon since then, and neither Israel nor
Syria has conducted any operations across their mutual border since 1973.

The Syrian Rebels are not a uniform entity. There are a number of different factions, some of which are already armed by Qatar and Saudi Arabia (Sunni Islamists), some of which are supported by Iraqi Kurdistan (Kurdish militias), and some of which are armed by the US (Democratic Pretenders).

Syria has the 66th largest economy of any country (at US$59,330,000,000), which is not considered poor. However, Syria has the 114th largest GDP per capita (US$5,078), which is considered poor. As of external debt, Syria is only 13% in debt, one of the lowest in the world. However, as of public debt, Syria is in 30% debt, which is not necessarily bad, but not necessarily good (compared to other nations). Syria is a rich country, meaning the government, however, its citizens do not earn that much money.
Some of the trending recreation ideas in Syria include skate-boarding and bicycle stunts. Soccer and basketball are also common sports in Syria as they are a favorite for the youth and the mature.
Red symbolizes the struggle and sacrifice for freedom; white signifies peace; and black stands for the dark colonial past. The flag is supposed to represent the former United Arab Republic, as these two green stars in the middle represent Egypt and Syria together. However, Hafez al-Assad reuse this flag in 1980 to create as the Syrian flag when the former UAR flag is no longer flag of Egypt when Anwar el-Sadat becomes president.
People are dying under the bullets and bombs of their bloody and dictatorial president, and unfortunately, no one is caring....
They are dying because after 40 years they decided to stand up to the dictator bashar al-assad and want to choose their president and elect him instead of a president coming into power by force.
This is coming to an end but it won't happen very soon because the other countries are not helping that much.

Historically, there was the "Right to Conquest" which was a pervasive idea in political thought. The idea was that it was natural for any country or state to grow and control more territory as it grew stronger. This allowed weaker states to dissolve in place of ones that were better run, a bureaucratic version of "survival of the fittest". The "Right to Conquest" prevailed as the dominant theory of nation-building until the mid-1800s when people started bringing up the concept of self-sovereignty and ethnic nationalism, which held the idea that people should govern themselves even if they are not the most powerful in the world. This view of state sovereignty has become dominant today and the Right to Conquest is seen as incorrect.
Since the Caliphates existed well within the Right to Conquest Period, the Caliphs did not have to assert a reason to conquer neighboring territories in Southwest Asia. It was their natural prerogative.
Most Syrians hate Israelis and "Zionists". Beyond that, who Syrians hate depends on the person. Some people hate Iran and Iranian proxies like Hezbollah. Some people hate the US and US allies in the Middle East. Some people hate theocrats and some hate secularists.
