BERNARD-HENRI LÉVY'S "SOS SYRIE" CONFERENCE: Zionists, Muslim Brothers, and Other Leaders of "Change in Syria" http://mrzine.monthlyreview.org/2011/furuhashi060711.html
Bernard-Henri Lévy, well known for his devotion to humanitarian military interventions, organized a conference to "stop the massacre" in Syria, "SOS Syrie," in Paris on the fourth of July. There is no doubt that BHL is eager to replicate his Libyan success in Syria. The call for the conference, issued through BHL's journal La Règle du Jeu, was joined by France-Syrie Démocratie and "Change in Syria for Democracy," the latter being a group that had emerged from the Syrian opposition conference held in Antalya, Turkey on 31 May-2 June 2011. On the "Change in Syria" Web site, posters for SOS Syrie are prominently displayed.http://english.changeinsyria.com/index.php/reports/111-stop-the-massacre-assad-must-go.html
What Syrians would want to join hands with the who's who of French Zionism and imperialism? Most of the prominent Syrian invitees named in the conference advertisements are the leaders of the aforementioned organizations that backed BHL's call. According to As-Safir's Paris correspondent Mohammad Ballout, among the invitees were many of the Executive Council of "Change in Syria": Amr Al-Azm, Ahed al-Hendi, Abdel Ilah Milhem (a leader of the Anza tribe), Ammar al-Qurabi (chairman of the National Organization for Human Rights in Syria), Sondos Sulaiman (of Al Hadatha Party). Lama Atassi, the president of France-Syrie Démocratie as well as a participant in the Antalya conference, took credit for linking up the Antalya opposition with BHL in an interview with Le Nouvel Observateur.
There was also Ashraf al-Moqdad, a member of the "National Salvation Front in Syria" led by Abdul Halim Khaddam. Moqdad, says As-Safir, bragged that, once "democracy" comes to Syria, "Hezbollah, 'Iranian agents,' and Palestinians" will be made to "pay the price." The As-Safir reporter says Moqdad went on to threaten him as well.Perhaps the most intriguing participant in SOS Syrie was Mulham al-Droubi, who is in charge of international relations of the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood as well as a member of the "Change in Syria" Executive Council. As the Muslim Brotherhood came out in favor of "normalization" with Israel without an end to the Israeli occupation and backed the monarchy in Bahrain and the rest of the Gulf Arab states, the United States and the European Union have made their support for the Muslim Brotherhood public, to the delight of the Brothers.
