A Canadian of Syrian origin, who was a leading contender to head Syria’s interim rebel government, is critical of Canada’s lack of support for the rebels trying to overthrow President Bashar al-Assad and form a new government in the war-ravaged country.
“Syrians are very frustrated by the lack of Canadian support,” Osama Kadi said on Monday from Istanbul, following a day of discussions on the composition of a new government. “Canada talks the talk but won’t walk the walk, and Syrians will remember who stood with them in their struggle and those who did not.”
Mr. Kadi, an economic adviser from London, Ont., and a former president and co-founder of the Syrian Canadian Council, was one of three leading candidates seeking to become interim prime minister in the Syrian opposition’s new government. Ghassan Hitto, a Kurd with links to the Muslim Brotherhood, was elected in the early hours of Tuesday at a meeting of leading opposition figures of the Syrian National Coalition...The Muslim Brotherhood, eh?
Sorry, Osama, there's no way we infidels have to back that "struggle"/jihad.
