Jumblatt: The Syrian people will crush the ruling gangs


Progressive Socialist Party leader MP Walid Jumblatt said in his weekly column to be published Tuesday in Al-Anbaa newspaper that “the Syrian people will sooner or later crush the ruling gangs and triumph.”

“I wish some countries that are still supporting the ruling gangs in Syria learn from the experience of Egypt’s [presidential elections] and allow its people to practice democracy… because the Syrian people will sooner or later crush these ruling gangs,” Jumblatt said.

Russia, China and Iran still support the Syrian regime of president Bashar al Assad in its crackdown against the pro democracy protesters

The PSP leader reminded the Syrian regime and its supporters that Mohamed Morsi went from being a detainee in an Egyptian prison to becoming the country’s president.

“If we have to learn something from [Morsi’s experience], it is that injustice cannot continue forever,” he added.

Egypt’s President Mohamed Morsi – elected in June after a revolution that overthrew strongman Hosni Mubarak – on Saturday called for an end to bloodshed in Syria in his inaugural address. “We support the Syrian people. We want the bloodshed to stop,” Morsi said
