Qatar Emir: Syrian people will not turn back on their demands

Qatar’s emir Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani said Monday that Syrians are determined to keep protesting against President Bashar al-Assad’s regime despite a deadly crackdown.

“The killing is nearly daily. But it’s clear that the Syrian people will not turn back on their demands,” Sheikh Hamad told pan-Arab news channel Al-Jazeera.

“The question now is how to get out of this domestic standoff in Syria,” he said.

In August, Sheikh Hamad criticised Syria’s use of force against protesters demanding democratic change, describing the approach as fruitless and urging serious reforms.

Qatar had long enjoyed cordial relations with Damascus, but Doha-based Al-Jazeera television has come under strong criticism by the Syrian authorities for its coverage of the popular uprising.

    So the Syrio-Iranian murderers tried their hand at his assassination!  It takes a brave leader to point the finger at the criminals while trying to maintain calm in his own country, despite the hovering mass of fruit-flies and snivelers that surround the non-slave states of today.
