- Al-Assad: the Arabs have no other choice but to resist
Syria-Israel, Politics, 5/22/2002
President Bashar al-Assad has stressed Syria's
unwavering position and that it has nothing that has
not been declared publicly regarding national issues.
During his meeting on Tuesday with the delegation
representing the Arab bar association and
representatives for organizations concerned, the
president added that Israel's intransigence position
has become clear especially after the Madrid
conference until the Palestinian Intifada.
He stressed Syria's support to the Palestinian
Intifada and commended the national resistance in
Lebanon. He said "the saying that violence should be
given up should be clarified on the ground that there
is a murderer and a victim and that violence for us is
not what the Palestinians are doing, rather a reaction
to violence and a result of violence and that Israel
is the reason behind violence and the one who
practices violence and at the same time it is the
source of terrorism and the Arab have nochoice in
their conflict with Israel but to resist."
