ElAraby Of The Arab League In Egypt Is Now On The Right Side Of History, But Apparently In Syria He And Other Arabs Want To Stay On The Wrong Side Of History

Arab League supports Syrian leader, scolds US

By Bassem Mroue July 14, 2011
 

BEIRUT - The Arab League said yesterday that Washington overstepped its bounds by saying President Bashar Assad of Syria had lost the legitimacy to lead his country.

Speaking to reporters in Damascus, Arab League Chief Nabil Elaraby said Assad assured him that “Syria has entered a new era and is now moving on the road of a genuine reform.’’

Syria came under withering international criticism Tuesday as the White House said Assad has lost legitimacy and the UN Security Council condemned attacks on the US and French embassies in Damascus.

It was a sharp escalation in pressure on Assad and a sign that the Obama administration could be moving closer to calling for regime change in Syria because of the violent crackdown on a four-month-old uprising. Previously, the US position on Assad was that he should lead a transition to democracy or leave.

Elaraby said nobody has the right to say the president of any country has lost his legitimacy.

“This issue is exclusively decided by the people,’’ he said after meeting Assad.

The Arab League had been mostly silent about the situation in Syria since the uprising began.
