Fouad Siniora and George Galloway.
The ‘anti-Syrian’ brings good news, and the ‘pro-Syrian’ brings trouble.
Fouad Siniora, Lebanon’s Prime Minister and leader of the ‘anti-Syrian opposition’ has arrived in Damascus for talks with Bashar Al-Assad. In keeping with Lebanese tradition, the Prime Minister’s first foreign journey is to Syria. They’ll be trying to resolve the border dispute, which has seen trucks delayed while searches are carried out.
Siniora insisted Lebanon comes with the hand of friendship, and the two countries share nothing but good feelings. And the sun set with the music playing.
That’s despite calls from right-wing extremists like Beirut’s Jubran Tuwani who called on Siniora not to compromise, and not to feel shy about making demands.
Meanwhile anti-everything British MP George Galloway has arrived in Damascus. The British demagogue rallies against anything Western. And it seems his latest cause is Syria. Thanks George.
So will trouble follow? Are the western missionaries starting to take their positions?
