Syrian ex-VP, Muslim Brothers team up in bid to topple AssadAssad will fall soon. But before that happens, expect Assad and Iran to get their assorted jihadostooges to create as much havoc as possible - even attempt to ignite an all out Arab-Israeli war. (More HERE from the Arab, GULF DAILY NEWS.)
Former Syrian Vice President Abdel-Halim Khaddam and the exiled leader of the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood agreed on Wednesday to join forces to topple President Bashar al-Assad.An Iranian Website, close to the Revolutionary Guard, reported that the Syrian republican guard, the elite security force that ensure the stability of regime, was placed on high alert and all leaves were cancelled, following Khaddam's recent statements against Assad's rule.
A source at Khaddam's office said the former official held talks with Ali Bayanouni, head of the Sunni Islamist group, in Brussels on Tuesday and Wednesday. "There was agreement on a joint vision to save Syria from the crisis that the regime has placed it in," the source told Reuters in Beirut by telephone. "It was also agreed to contact other opposition leaders inside and outside Syria to come up with a joint plan of action."
