Druze leader in Lebanon calls to topple Assad regime
Druze leader in Lebanon Walid Jumblat called Monday for toppling Syria's regime, terming it the "first title for terror." Jumblat, in an editorial to his progressive Socialist Party weekly magazine, said Arab leaders should "start confronting the Syrian regime's terror that has been inherited from father to son."
"This regime is the first title for terror, confronting and toppling it are a must," Jumblatt added in the editorial to be published by al-Anbaa on Tuesday. Excerpts of Jumblat's editorial were distributed Monday by the state-run National News Agency (NNA).
According to the Druze leader, the Syrian regime's sole objective is to "practice programmed sabotage" in neighboring states. Jumblat described the Damascus summit as "dim that lacked political vision."
"This dim summit, as its hosts are, did not achieve any progress in tackling major controversial topics, topped by the Palestinian cause, Iraq and Lebanon," Jumblat added. "The Syrian regime is active in practicing sabotage and widening rifts in all three arenas," he noted.
