Syria Thumbs Its Nose at West


Syrian Foreign Minister al-Moallem sounded like Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad Tuesday, blaming the West for lack of reforms and claiming Syria will be a great democracy.

He tried to put Israel ban in the center of woes in the Middle East, charging that it :"usurped" the Golan Heights, and he rejected documented evidence that Iran is helping Syrian President Bashar Assad suppress the uprising in the same brutal way Ahmadinejad did in Iran two years ago.
