Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi said on Saturday his country supported the Syrian revolution and that President Bashar al-Asasd's administration had no place in Syria's future.

Morsi said Egypt's priority was to halt the bloodshed and to work, with "Arab, regional and international support and consensus", for a political solution that would allow "the Syrian people to replace the current regime" with elected leaders.

"All of that while preserving the unity of Syria," Morsi, an Islamist, said during a televised speech to Egypt's Shura Council, or upper house of parliament. "There is no place for the current regime in the future of Syria."

Assad has been losing ground to rebels waging a 21-month-old uprising. Egyptians ousted their longtime authoritarian president, Hosni Mubarak, in a popular revolt in February 2011. Morsi won office in a free election earlier this year.

"The revolution of the Syrian people, which we support, will go forward, God willing, to realise its goals of freedom, dignity and social justice," Morsi added.

Morsi, Qatar, S Arabia deceiving the musim world
Morsi is in the pockets of Qatar, S Arabia and the other arab countries who are slaves to the west. Muslim brotherhood is the biggest lie being told they have no concept of ummah or brotherhood, wake up people, get rid of those uneducated non-muslim Camel hearders in Qatar, Saudia Arabia, Jordon, and Gulf states

When a rat is called 'Assad'
'Assad''s family is famous for brutality. His father has done much more. Muslim Brotherhood, in Syria, have suffered the most during his father tenure. To say Morsi is a puppet, or using Obama's speech writer, shows great deal of ignorance. Most of us who care for human rights are against what happens in Syria, regardless of ideological differences.
