Progressive Socialist Party leader MP Walid Jumblat said Monday that the Syrians will “crush the ruling gang” and claim victory over President Bashar al-Assad’s regime sooner or later, urging Russia and Iran to support the people not the government.
In his weekly editorial in the PSP-affiliated al-Anbaa magazine, Jumblat said that “Egypt witnessed a historical moment when elected President Mohammed Morsi took power to initiate a new era.”
“No one is born a leader. The characteristics of a true leader are built up through personal effort and specific circumstances,” the PSP leader said, hoping that Morsi would lead Egypt towards progress and change to retain its position on Arab and regional levels, specifically in supporting the Palestinian cause.
Jumblat said that Syria will follow Egypt in claiming victory over the “ruling gangs, because injustice cannot go on forever,” adding that the “Syrian people will crush the regime sooner or later.”
“Certain countries supporting Syria till this moment should take the Egyptian model as an example and allow the people to practice democracy,” he said, in a clear reference to Russia and Iran.
Jumblat said: “We are looking forward for the Arab world to support Egypt financially instead of investing in useless projects, because the region is in desperate need to regain Egypt’s position and role to support the Palestinian cause.”
