Interesting. Assad asks for a dialog and the headline says he rejects dialog... Assad claims the rebels are Al Quida terrorists. So does Jordan, by the way. Not all, but certainly a lot of terrorists and extremists. Assad asks the west to stop funding and arming the terrorists. The West has laws in every countrt preventing the funding and arming of terrorists. And Britan's Foreign Minister flatly rejects everything Assad says. As members of the judeo-Christian faith, If someone calls for peace we need to respond positively. We can't assume there is a lack of sincerity like the British Foreign Minister. I'm very concerned that if Assad falls without a peace plan, extremists will over take the country.
