Arab league says Syrian opposition must unite
Mon, 02 Jul 2012 10:32p.m.
The Arab League chief has called on the fragmented Syrian opposition to unite during a meeting in Cairo to discuss a new international plan for a transitional government.
Arab League Secretary General Nabil Elaraby addressed nearly 250 members of the Syrian opposition at the meeting today in an effort to get disparate groups to pull together. It is the first time the Arab League has hosted a meeting of the Syrian opposition.
Yesterday, Syrian opposition groups rejected a UN-brokered peace plan for a transitional government because it left the door open for President Bashar Assad to be part of the interim administration.
Elaraby says the opposition "must not miss this opportunity" to unite, adding that the Syrian people are more valuable than any factional disagreements.

The Arab league have finally decided to recognise that Syria is an Arab problem, in the centre of Arabia and the Arab League has held its first meeting and is now discussing Syria.The 23 oil rich Arab League states should form their own Peace keeping force as such a force would be familiar with Arab culture and protocols, the region, language and the religous variations. Money, people and arms would be no problem. Committment maybe!!The only first problem so far to date is that the Arab League has hidden behind the petticoats of the UN waiting for the rest of the world to try and fix what everyone can see is basically an 'Arab problem".The second problem for the League is that they so far have not shown any real committment (with actual Action)to assist and help their Arab brothers & sisters in Syria at a time while the Assad Murdering machine just continues killing Arab women and children and the numbers being killed is now on the increase.The Arab League has had its FIRST MEETING and what the world and the Syrian mothers and children want is not more meaningless words from the League but Action. They vulnerable would like Arab League ACTION quickly.
