After being considered a “light” pro-Syrian before being elected, President Michel Sleiman advocated the “centrist” policy to the extent he made himself irrelevant in the political balance of power. Thanks to his little bloc in the parliament. But recently, he voiced some subtle opinions, which can be interpreted as critique of the Syrian regime and Hezbollah.
Since the start of the uprising, Syrian state media wasn’t deterred from claiming the silliest, and illogical claims just to defend their unreasonable case, which no one outside their influence believes. Similar insane claims were for example accusing Qatar and Aljazeera of fabricating the protests and filming them in studios. Or getting sensitive with the Syrian weather forecast on AlArabiya Channel, accusing them of coding the forecast news with orders to insurgents!
Today, the Syrian regime went down to a new low, by implementing the saying that Bashar Assad gave in his first speech (since the start of the uprising) before the ‘parliament’: ‘lie, lie, lie until you believe your lie’. So to proof their lie about the presence of Al-Qaeda, which is supposedly responsible for the bombings in the capital, they fabricated an Al-Qaeda today – literally.
