Damascus welcomes...

Fouad Siniora and George Galloway.

The 'anti-Syrian' brings good news, and the 'pro-Syrian' brings trouble.

Fouad Siniora, Lebanon's Prime Minister and leader of the 'anti-Syrian opposition' has arrived in Damascus for talks with Bashar Al-Assad. In keeping with Lebanese tradition, the Prime Minister's first foreign journey is to Syria. They'll be trying to resolve the border dispute, which has seen trucks delayed while searches are carried out.

Siniora insisted Lebanon comes with the hand of friendship, and the two countries share nothing but good feelings. And the sun set with the music playing.

That's despite calls from right-wing extremists like Beirut's Jubran Tuwani who called on Siniora not to compromise, and not to feel shy about making demands.

Meanwhile anti-everything British MP George Galloway has arrived in Damascus. The British demagogue rallies against anything Western. And it seems his latest cause is Syria. Thanks George.

So will trouble follow? Are the western missionaries starting to take their positions?

Do I detect animosity towards George Galloway? How come?

He's very antagonistic, he tends to anger his opponents. George galloway is like a red cloth to a bull.

And he lacks sincerity: he jumps from bandwagon to bandwagon.

He is, however, incredibly articulate. But no-one listens to him anymore.

For what it's worth, I still listen to him. :)

Sasa.. As someone living in the UK.. I still listen to him too.. as so many people I met here from different backgrounds!

ok, maybe i was a BIT harsh!

I know he still has a lot of support. And i still Respect him too. But i'm sure nothing would make him happier than to see the UK's relationship with Syria deteriorate so he can have a new cause to champion.

The problem as i see is that he might know more about the intention of the west more than syria itself,so his comming to syria might be asign of what is comming to syria not a cause if it ,god bless syria and help her.naim
