Syrian Opposition Leader: Hizbullah Showed Real Face by Siding with Assad

(Daily Star-Lebanon) "The Syrian revolutionaries in the streets daily shout slogans against Iran and Hizbullah after the resistance's [Hizbullah's] mask slipped off when it sided with the Syrian regime and helped it crush its oppressed people," the head of the Syrian National Council Burhan Ghalioun said Monday in the Lebanese newspaper Al-Mustaqbal. Reconsidering Syria's strategy with Iran and putting an end to arms supplies to Hizbullah are among the Syrian opposition's demands, Ghalioun said. Ghalioun stressed that the next Syrian government would "not interfere" in Lebanon's internal affairs. "We send a clear message to all allies and spies of the Syrian regime in Lebanon to think about their future in their country... after the collapse of the criminal regime in Damascus," he warned. "The end of the regime is inevitable within a few months," he said. "All we need are safe zones that Syrian opposition members, who will immediately multiply, can resort to; and then the regime won't be able to hold out against this popular flood," he said.
