Excerpts from the Arab and Iranian Media & Analysis of US Policy in the Region

Who Writes the Aspen Institute Briefings?: “More atrocities in the Syrian conflict and more injustice…than in the Palestine-Israeli conflict.”

The weekly roundup by the Aspen Institute is always useful in highlighting what the hardline is on all things lebanon, syria, iran and hizbullah.

Sometimes they go way, way overboard like this careless graf:

“What is more revealing in Nasrallah’s statement is an underlying recognition of the Syria opposition. For over a year, Hezbollah toed the Syrian line by claiming that the protests were American-Israeli conspiracies targeting the “Resistance,” even as it supported protests across the Arab world. Its new stance, however, seems to admit, at the very least, that there is an opposition group. Hezbollah went a step further in an earlier speech he gave last month, saying that it stands with the group in Syria that want reform but rejects Israel and supports Palestine. It was lost on Nasrallah that there are more atrocities in the Syrian conflict and more injustice, as Druze leader Walid Jumblatt said this week, than in the Palestine-Israeli conflict.”
