BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:00 P.M.) – The prominent Jordanian politician Leith Shubeilat called on the government of King Abdullah II to apologize to Syria and restore relations with Damascus.

In a letter to Prime Minister Omar Al-Razzaz via his Facebook page, Shubeilat stated that Jordan should apologize to Syria for turning their government into a foe and cutting ties with them.

“You should apologize on behalf of all of us, those who did not stop our previous government from being turned into an arch foe of Syria; apologize for what your predecessors have done, and especially the opposition MOC [Military Operation Center] which united Western countries, Jews, the Gulf countries in Jordan with the aim of overthrowing Syrian authorities,” Shubeilat stated.

Shubeilat also reminded Al-Razzaz of his father who also held high-ranking posts in Jordan.

“Given the legacy of your father, postponing even longer the restoration of relations with Syria is just a shame for you,” Shubeilat noted, arguing that the Syrian people are closer to those in Jordan than the Arabs of the Gulf.

Shubeilat has been imprisoned by the Jordanian authorities on a number of occasions in the past, as he has long opposed the current government in Amman.

It is not within the Arab psych to apologize or seek forgiveness, not without Washington’s approval – these leaders know not God let alone the teachings of God’s Prophets, their authority comes from Washington and they’re worshipers of mineyand false power. Assad is an exception
