Syrian ‘opposition’ conference in Paris attracts…25 people

September 30th, 2005 · 3 Comments · Uncategorized

25 people have attended the ‘opposition’ conference in Paris, rendering it a total failure.

The number was far below even the most conservative estimates. Most of the 25 were Kurdish separatists.

The “National Forum for Democratic Dialogue” quickly spiraled into agenda driven secular politics. Not a single non-Syrian dignitary attended the conference, something they would need to give the meeting international legitimacy.

The meeting had been postponed twice before, because not enough people could be persuaded to attend.

    Haha… which opposition is this exactly?

    Can the opposition even be properly classified as a single entity :-p

    This is kind of sad. But kind of funny.

    The British, French and Israelis have been using the Muslim brotherhood to fight seculrist regimes. What is happening in Syria is similar to what happened during the Iranian revolution. The French allowed the Iranian revolutionary council to be set up in France and allowed Ayatollah Khomeini to come to France to live until Air France flew him back to Iran. The Shia branch of the Muslim brotherhood was instrumental in the overthrow of the Shah and the placing of Khomeini and other hardliners into power.
