BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:10 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Republic’s return to the Arab League is ‘inevitable’, Arab League Assistant Secretary-General Hossam Zaki said on Friday, as reported by Asharq Al-Aswat.

“In 2011, Syria’s membership was suspended. The country was not expelled from the Arab League. Its return is, therefore, normal,” he said.

According to Asharq Al-Aswat, Arab League Secretary-General Ahmed Abul Gheit said that Syria’s return to the Arab League would be contingent on member-states reaching a consensus.

“This issue is sensitive and we must recognize that Syria is a founding member of the Arab League,” he said after holding talks with Lebanese President Michel Aoun.

Abul Gheit said this consensus has not been reached at this time.

What does the Arab League pay for the return of Syria?

The two well informed Arab League Secretaries overlook that Syria was attacked by members of the Arab League that ganged up with foreign powers to pay Jihadi mercenaries to wage war.

Syria the victim of the aggression was suspended from the Arab League while the perpetrators, who incidentally lost the war, still hold their seats are still talking big. Why sit at the same table with the Gulf blood hounds?

Was I Assad, I’d say “Arab-League FÜCK OFF, Syria is not interested by returning after how A.L. backstabbed the country”. I’d rather consider to integrate BRICS or build up some Mediterranean thing with North-African countries, Cyprus, Israel, Armenia, Greece and Lebanon. I’d make Syria neutral especially from the KSA/Iran disputes and the Palestinian big-lie then even reinstall Syriac-Aramaic as Syria’s language. Syrians are NOT Arabs, they’re mainly Arameans and Assyrians, then Kurds. Arabs are a small minority. Ara-Leaue only pushed Syria into stupid humiliating wars with southern neighbour Israel while never had been attacked by ’em. Time to follow Egypt… Read more »
