The Syrian Foreign Ministry has described statements made by Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi at Wednesday's annual Arab League meeting in Cairo as "blatant meddling in Syria's domestic affairs" and a "breach of the rights of the Syrian people," who, the ministry stressed, would "not accept foreign intervention."

"Morsi reflects the views of the Muslim Brotherhood group, which has nothing to do with the historical relationship between the two countries," the ministry asserted in a Thursday statement.

In his speech at Arab League headquarters on Wednesday, Morsi declared it was "time for the Syrian regime to step down," stressing that it was the Arab world's responsibility to find a viable resolution to the ongoing crisis.

"We should help the Syrians avoid civil war and avert foreign military intervention," Morsi said. "I say to the Syrian regime: there is still a chance to end the bloodshed. Now is the time for change."

Morsi went on to say there was "no time to waste" in discussing proposed reforms, stressing that the Assad regime "has to leave to stop the carnage".

He also called on Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad to "take lessons from recent history," in reference to the fall of longstanding political regimes in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya and Yemen in the wake of the Arab Spring.

"Do something and we'll support you," Morsi told Arab diplomats before leaving the meeting.

The Syrian Foreign Ministry, for its part, described Morsi's speech at the Arab League as "propaganda that aims to promote violence in Syria, which differs little from other governments that support the militant terrorist groups [in Syria] with money, weapons and training."

The ministry statement added: "History will not forgive them for what they did to the Syrian people; we're sure the Egyptians are capable of restoring their leading role in the region."

It`s a nice psychological trick you use by by associating Mursi with Clinton because the use the same language. The iranian regime agreed with the assumption of Bush with regards to Saddam. But I doubt you had a Problem with that. Since the way to Jerusalem runs through Bagdad, right?. Even when Saddam unlike Your Ilk shoot a few firecracker to the Zionist entity. How many Persians died in the war against the Zionist entity. Have you ever declared war on the zionist? And no, I don`t count angry speeches as attacks. Hezpollah never crossed the red line suspiciously. Not in Operation cast lead . but it warns it would get active if iran get bombed. This is exactly where there loyalty is. You are nothing but a persian Hasbara Troll flooding the Comment sections of all Online Newspaper. Using the same tactics of the zionist Hasbaras.

Foreign Intervention
That`s cute. As if Iranian, Iraqi, Russian Intervention on Behalf of the sectarian Assad clique is not foreign Intervention. Syrians are dying at the Hands of persians, the Assad Regime and the Mahdi Army like flies and Arabs do nothing.

Arab league
Has lost it's utility, dignity and standing! Qatar and Saudi interests before Arab interest. Wahabis are traitors since first World War. They feared Palestine hailed at the time, by Western social scholars, as the most progressive, educated and advanced entity in Midlle-East. Lebaneses used to cross to Palestine for work and for studies, ex: Pierre Gemayel at Saint Joseph College in Haifa. Today Palestinians are treated like Zbaly by Arabs and Israel alike.

Mahdi Army
I don`t give a damn about the saudis. But answer me this question. What happened to the Palestinians in Iraq after Maliki rode on american tanks to power with the approval of Iran? And why Iran opened it`s Airspace for the Invasion of Afghanistan?. Why is Maliki for Democracy and the De-Baathification in Iraq while deny the same rights for the syrians. Of course he is for democracy in Bahrain again.
