The National Progressive Front on Wednesday condemned the Arab League resolution to suspend Syria participation in its meetings, describing the move as undermining the AL principles and violating its conventions.

“It is not the first time Syria confronts big challenge, but this time, it is the most dangerous because it was cooked in the Zionist, US and western kitchens,” the Front said in a statement.

The statement considered that the foreign intervention which some Arabs seek for, aims at enabling the hegemony projects in the region to establish the so-called the new Middle East Project in the interests of the US and Israel.

The Front saw that what is going on now is a big conspiracy against Syria and its pan-Arab role, but this conspiracy is doomed fail because of the people’s awareness and their support to the Syrian leadership.

In turn, Syrian community in Chile denounced the Arab League decision against Syria, voicing support to the reform process under the leadership of President Bashar al-Assad.

In a statement issued Tuesday, the Syrian community in Chile stressed its categorical rejection of all attempts aimed at “undermining Syria, the beating heart of the Arab Nation”.

The Syrian community in Chile called on the Arab countries which agreed to the unfair resolution to get rid of their dependency on neo-colonialist countries.

Also the Syrian community in the Czech Republic condemned Wednesday the Arab League decision against Syria, reiterating their support of the comprehensive reform process under the leadership of President Bashar al-Assad.

The Syrian community warned of the dangers of such decision on the unity, security and stability of the homeland as it paves the way for foreign interference in the internal affairs of Syria, stressing that the Arab League has become a tool for western powers to carry out their plots at international forums.

For his part and in an interview to the Syrian TV on Wednesday, Archbishop of the Sebaste Roman Orthodox Church, Atallah Hanna, stressed the sinister conspiracy hatched against Syria targets its principled and supportive stances towards the Palestinian Cause.

“When Syria is targeted, Palestine is targeted and when Damascus is targeted it is as if Jerusalem is targeted,” said Archbishop Hanna criticizing the Arab League (AL) decision on suspending Syria’s membership in the AL.

He described the League’s treatment of Syria as “unwise” because Syria plays a key role in the AL as it is “the beating heart of Arabism”.

“Syria is supposed to remain in the Arab League. The Arab Initiative is supposed to go on and there should have been an Arab contribution to resolve the problem in Syria,” the Archbishop added.

He called on the AL to shoulder its responsibilities and correct its mistake against Syria through restoring the seat back to Syria, “instead of conspiring against it” because Syria is one of the founder states of the AL and has played a pioneer role in activating the joint Arab action.

“In order to reach the modern Syria, everyone should stand by the Syrian leadership and people,” he added.

He also called upon the Arab countries to stand by Syria for foiling the conspiracy against Syria and ending the crisis it is going through.

In another interview with the Syrian TV, Russian and Arab researchers and analysts expressed rejection of the Arab League decisions against Syria, dismissing them as a “misstep”.

Top researcher at the Institute of Oriental Studies in Moscow Boris Dolgov said the Arab League decision has been taken under the pressure of NATO, Western countries and Israel which seek to destroy Syria.

Dolgov said that the Russian and Chinese stances on Syria can prevent foreign military intervention in Syria, adding that the Russian and Chinese veto poses an obstacle to this intervention.

Khaled al-Ani, member of the Russian Committee for Supporting the Syrian People said Syria is the ”spearhead” in the Arab struggle against the Zionist expansionism and imperialism, adding that Syria is an independent country and has always kept it doors open to the Arabs.

Maxim Shevchenko, member of the Public Chamber of the Russian Federation, reminded in a press conference that Syria has hosted more than 2 million displaced Iraqis in the wake of the US invasion of Iraq and supports the Lebanese and Palestinian resistance.

He warned of grave consequences in case Syria is destabilized, affirming that Russia won’t allow foreign intervention in Syria.
