An Egyptian Nasserist Party (ENP) delegation has stirred controversy by visiting Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad.

“Our visit to Syria in support of Bashar Al-Assad came out of our genuine intention to back the resistance against American and Zionist plans in the region,” Farouq El-Eshri, co-founder of the ENP told Al-Ahram Arabic website.

The delegation had no intention of meeting with the Syrian opposition at the moment, he added.

Around 60,000 people have been killed during an ongoing two-year uprising against the Al-Assad government.

The meeting with Al-Assad on Tuesday did not find any solutions to the Syrian crisis, El-Eshri added, because no one can end it now.

“If Bashar falls, we are left with three scenarios: 1. the fall of ‘Arab Nationalist’ Syria, 2. Syria will fall under the rule of the Muslim Brotherhood, 3. It will be a civil war.”

Syria is the last defence line for Pan-Arabism, El-Eshri added.

Bashar Al-Assad is also the leader of the Arab Socialist Ba’ath Party in Syria.

The NSF is made of some disgusting and untrustworthy people!
Assad bombs his own people and he's a hero, Morsy attempts to get rid of the old regime and fix the country peacefully and he's a "dictator"?! The hypocracy is evident.

That's not much of a surprise
Leftists...they are really the same everywhere. I think the world doesn't need any more of the Stalins, Mao Zedongs, Pol Pots, Assads and the likes of these leftist criminals who don't hesitate to kill and opress in order to stay in power...
