Lebanon ‘stands by brotherly Syria’ in rejecting Arab League’s call to end crackdown


Arab League issued statement last week calling for Syria to end the bloodshed ‘before it is too late.’

ed note–Lebanon is not “rejecting” the AL’s demand to an ‘end to the bloodshed’. Lebanon recognizes that the revolts in Syria are foreign (Israeli/US) in origin and that one of the many dominos to fall if Assad is driven out includes Lebanon. This is just more of the typically Jewish method of coloring things in such a way as to propagandize the masses into believing certain things that they normally would not if given all the facts. 

Lebanon on Wednesday backed Syria in rejecting an Arab League statement demanding an end to the bloodshed in the country.

“Lebanon stands by brotherly Syria and its stance is clear in this regard,” Foreign Minister Adnan Mansour told the Hezbollah-run al Nour radio station.

Foreign ministers from the 22-member Arab League last week issued a statement calling for an “end to the spilling of blood and for Syria to follow the way of reason before it is too late.”

The organization also announced a peace initiative aimed at resolving the crisis in Syria where more than 2,000 people have been killed in anti-government protests.

Mansour noted that Syria made the right decision by rejecting the meeting’s closing statement, adding that “a consensus had been reached by the conferees not to issue a statement at the end of the meeting but some attending the meeting, breached it and issued it.”

“Such a stand by some of the Arab League’s foreign ministers prompted the Syrian delegation to send a diplomatic note to the Arab League’s general secretariat in which it noted that the released statement did not reflect the meeting’s final agreement,” he said.

An Arab diplomat based in Beirut told DPA that “Syria, in its diplomatic note to the organization’s secretariat, said the statement by the Arab foreign ministers amounted to a clear violation … of the principles of the Arab League charter and of the foundations of joint Arab action.”

He added that Syria described the statement in its letter as “unacceptable.”

The diplomat said Arab League Secretary General Nabil al Arabi was still awaiting an invitation from Syria to travel there, but there has been no response from the government. This, he said, “proves that a conflict between Syria and the Arab League is looming.”

    “This, he said, “proves that a conflict between Syria and the Arab League is looming.”” : the arab league is on the side of the forces of evil, they want conflict with Syria, hence the provocation..

    A Middle East analyst was interviewed by Press TV this morning, re: the demos in Israel. Apparently, the situation there is similar to that in the US, with a huge divide between the wealthy minority, of which government officials are a part, and the remainder of society, who are struggling economically. The people there support the demos in Egypt, and are against government agression toward neighbouring countries. Could be they are getting worried, since they don`t only have the Palestinians to concern them anymore..
