The Bottom Line By Ghassan Kadi Aug 2011

The Bottom Line

August 5, 2011
By Ghassan Kadi
The most important reason behind my stand about what is happening in Syria is the bottom line.
The bottom line to me means that the Levant is under serious threats coming from different origins and which are aimed at providing Israel with hegemony over the region. With this threat, standing up against this threat is the only important issue. Nothing else matters. Every thing else has to take a second place in priority or no priority at all. It is like a situation of a person in Intensive Care. Your concern, only concern, would be to keep him/her alive.

Any good Syrian citizen knows this. Any self-respecting Syrian who refuses to kowtow to Israel knows that he/she should be prepared to accept certain austerities and the loss of certain privileges for the sake of honouring the utmost cause and bottom line.

Most Arabs states have sold themselves to the devil. This includes the PA itself. The PA is now begging for scraps. They have sold out Palestine.

We don’t know how Egypt will pan out, but right now, and for the last 40 years, only one Arab regime stood up against Israel, and that regime is that of Syria.

Hezbollah would not have been able to achieve what it did without Syria’s support. I am not prepared to accept taking the risk of changing this and I will support Assad for as long as he stands up honourably and alone against Israel.
