Syrian Opposition represent Syria at Arab League

You know you’re unpopular when even the Arab League won’t have you. That’s where the Syrian Government is at right now. At a League summit held in Qatar this week, representatives from the Syrian Opposition took the seat in lieu of one of President Assad’s people.

Ouch. Remember, this is the Arab League. Their standards are not high. This group kept Qadaffi’s Libya as a member until the civil war began, and never got around to suspending Saddam’s Iraq. Egypt, a founding member, was suspended for 20 years for making peace with Israel. But Yemen remains not-quite-suspended despite making war on its own people.

So you must be more than slightly on the nose to be unwelcome here, provided you’re Arab. President Assad has achieved this rare feat, though, and Herald congratulates him and his Government. They have been cast out by one of the most unprincipled collections of despots  the world has ever known.

Bravo, chaps.
