Sheikh Qassem pointed out that saying, without President Bashar Assad participation in the Arab Summit, it would have been uninteresting underscores Syria’s major indispensable role and means that the 13-year conspiracy aimed at pushing Syria into the Israeli side has failed.
His eminence emphasized that the Palestinian resistance, led by the Islamic Jihad Movement, foiled the Zionist scheme during “Revenge of the Free” battle, adding that cooperation among the various factions, including Hamas, maintained the balance of deterrence which protects the Palestinian civilians.
Domestically, Sheikh Qassem called on the various parliamentary blocs to settle their nominations for the presidential elections in order to prevent more procrastination in this regard, noting holding a national dialogue would bridge the gaps and clarify the vague considerations required to nominate candidates.
