Ferzli Says Berri May Meet Assad Soon


Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri could soon meet with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, Deputy Speaker Elie Ferzli has said.

“A meeting between Speaker Nabih Berri and Syrian President Bashar al-Assad is possible at any given moment,” Ferzli said in an interview with al-Mayadeen television.

His remarks follow a visit to Ain el-Tineh by Syrian Ambassador to Lebanon Ali Abdul Karim Ali.

“There is speculation that Speaker Berri could go to Damascus before or after the rally that the AMAL Movement will organize tomorrow at 5:30 pm in Baalbek to mark the 40th anniversary of the disappearance of the movement's founder Imam Moussa al-Sadr,” al-Liwaa newspaper reported.

Berri has not met with al-Assad since the eruption of the Syrian conflict in 2011.

Ferzli also told al-Mayadeen that “President Michel Aoun's decision to meet with whomever he wants, including Assad, is a sovereign decision.”

“The ties between presidents Aoun and Assad have never been severed and the ties between Lebanon and Syria are historic and pivotal,” Ferzli, who is close to Aoun and Damascus, added.

“We only want the relation with Syria to serve Lebanon's interest before anything else and the Lebanese-Syrian relation will not resemble the previous era at all,” Ferzling went on to say, noting that “Lebanon will not be a corridor or a launchpad for conspiracies against Syria and vice versa.”

Lebanon and the Lebanese need to be ruled by a colonial criminal regime.

I concur. Bring back the Ottomans or French! Alternatively, Russia is willing to do so for a fee !

Mark Twain once said :“If a cat sits on a hot stove, that cat won't sit on a hot stove again. That cat won't sit on a cold stove either. That cat just don't like stoves.”

My conclusion is that cats are smarter than people like Berri.

The more things change the more they remain the same. I said a week ago or so that the best thing that could happen to this failed republic is for the french to come back and make us an overseas territory with a french governor. Under french laws and use the Euro, Everything run by the french and send these warlords to sit in the castles with absolutely no power. Enough is enough.

The French are too smart to make that same mistake again. No civilized nation will think about occupying Lebanon again...even the desperate Yids learned that lesson.
