Syria : Abdel Halim Khaddam

عبد الحليم خدام


Abdel-Halim Khaddam, who now lives in Paris, told Germany’s weekly Der Spiegel magazine on Saturday that al-Assad was facing growing pressure from economic problems at home and the international investigation into the killing of Rafiq al-Hariri, the former Lebanese prime minister.

Khaddam, who accuses al-Assad of ordering al-Hariri’s murder, said: “His fall has already begun. I don’t think his regime will last out this year.”

The former vice-president, for 30 years a confidant of al-Assad’s late father, Hafez al-Assad, left the government in June.

He has been accused of treason and expelled from the ruling Baath Party after a series of verbal attacks on the president.

  1. Dear sir/Mne:

    I did grow up in Lebanon at the time during the Attassi Era. Syria has been unstable and changed government every two years since 1956. Syria did not stable until the President Hafez El Assad took over, and to took Syria forward to return. Mr Khadam was part of the changes for over 30 years.

    My question to you: Whay for what price you got to turn against your conutry?

    What cause you to get made all in the sudden, after 30 years or more in the same Government?

    What steps, you are taken to appologized to the Syria people?

    How did you manage to embrace your enemy and the enemy of the Syrian people?

    If you can honestly answer these questions on TV face to face on camera talking directy to your people. Then I will admire you honesty. May be the people of Syria will forgive you.
