Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has been facing the biggest challenge to his rule. Popular protests demanding greater freedoms and an end to corruption erupted over a month ago in southern Syria and spread to the capital Damascus and most cities in Syria. Last Friday witnessed the largest ever protest and there are reports pointing to more protests this coming Friday since the Christians were urged to participate on Great Friday.

Just like the Egyptian, Tunisian and Libyan regimes the Syrian regime has been blaming foreigners for the protests. Last week the Syrian regime accused a Lebanese Future movement legislator of funding and arming the opposition to fuel a wave of protests in the country, a charge that was repeatedly denied by the party and MP Jamal al Jarrah.

    I am eager to see the post-bashar Syria and especially see the reaction of HA, Berri, Jumblat, Aoun and Frangieh and how they are going to react. I am expecting another 180 degree turn for Jumblat and the resumption of insulting the Assad family and exposing their crimes once again, starting with the killing of his father.
