"To the impartial eye, the world not only seems an unlikely one-off phenomenon, but a constant strain on reason. If reason exists, that is, if a neutral reason exists. So speaks the voice from within. So speaks Joker's voice." - Jostein Gaarder

Labwani, 12 years in jail... and Assad for 7 years in Kassioun.

The verdict was announced as President Bashar al-Assad was addressing the Syrian parliament.

He said Damascus would not co-operate with a UN-backed tribunal to try suspects in the killing of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri if it would undermine Syrian sovereignty.

"The abandonment of sovereignty means that Syrian law no longer protects Syrian citizens," Mr Assad said in the televised address.

Because that's what syrian laws do, they protect their citizens.

Yazan, I applaud your stand, I love your comment on Mosaic and iwas going to publish it but I knew you would do it on your own blog. Hoping for better times but I think we have to regroup in the future, the regime won this battle.

In a recent article on www.dctcrs.org by Mr. Almaleh, he explains how the regime is controlling and not abiding by the current Syrian constitution. Article 3 of the constitution calls for the election of president (not referendum), the regime is not giving a damn to the constitution.
The parliament should accept or reject the nomination from the Baath Party who should receive application from all citizens interested.
It is not only pleasing piece of info that presidential election is not legal after all, but for history and record, it should be told.
