Prominent Syrian actor Jamal Suleiman said that supporters
of Syrian President Bashar Al Asad insulted and cursed him after he called for
freedom for the Syrian people. Suleiman had also stressed that the government
should play an important role in implementing political reform to improve
living conditions of people.

According to the internet website MBC.net, Suleiman stated
that with regards to Syria either the government enters into dialogue with the
opposition and present sacrifices for the future of Syria, or conditions remain
as they are with smoke filling the skies of every Syrian city.
The actor added that the demands of the Syrian people are
clear cut and all that they are asking for is to live in a democratic country
where their rights are practiced freely.
Suleiman stressed that he does not wish to be at odds with
the current Syrian regime and all he had requested was that people should
practice their freedom to speak out and demand political reform and an
improvement to their living conditions. The actor has expressed his
disappointment at the way protesters, who are calling for reform and holding
peaceful demonstrations, are being treated brutally by security forces.
