Lebanese Media: Assad 'Weak' for Not Attacking Israel


A clip from a popular Lebanese satire program on the Lebanese Broadcasting Corporation (LBC) channel, blasting Syrian President Bashar Assad for being too "weak" and "ineffective" to respond to recent Israeli air strikes on Syrian military targets, has gone viral in Arab social media circles. The clip, which highly resembles shorts from popular Israeli TV show Chartzufim (the Israeli version of British satire program Spitting Image), confronts an official "spokesman" for Assad about statements made after Israeli strikes on a Syrian weapons transports on May 5, 2013.
