German intelligence dismissed that a change in the Syrian regime is to take place, in spite of the unrest continuing over the past weeks.

In a meeting with the German daily Der Spiegel in Damascus, Ernst Uhrlau, head of the German intelligence service, said that he doesn’t see the situation in Syria leading to a regime change.

Uhrlau revealed his view that the ruling Alawite minority in Damascus, headed by president Bashar al-Assad’s clan, will not give up their posts, adding that the Assad clan will attempt to create splits within the ranks of the opposition through concessions like allowing a multi-party system and elections.

Uhrlau says he believes the opposition itself does not seem unified enough to force a change in the ruling regime.

Understanding the issues
The real issue here is, the savage and brutal way of killing a man on the assumption of killing a policeman, in a civilized society in which Egypt isn't, would have legal right to stand a trial, are we in agreement here?
