Ammar Abdul Hamid leaves Khaddam's party

Ammar Abdul Hamid says he is leaving the Baath/Muslim Brotherhood party, the National Salvation Front.

"I think I just can’t think of any other way to say that I am severing my association with the National Salvation Front. The Reason? A loss of faith really," he says.

After a guessing game - is he, isn't he part of the NSF, he revealed that he would work as one of their representatives, and open an office for them.

Now, he has become disillusioned, and says he is going to focus on his empowerment project Tharwa, instead of the politicking of Khaddam. From negative to positive.

"Oppositional politics per se have always been more of a distraction than the real deal for me" he says.

But he does hint at a personality clash within the NSF in his parting swipe: "It’s not the lack of ideas and possibilities that is the problem here, but the lack of necessary means and the right personalities".

It would be interesting to hear why this NSF-exile is bailing out. Leaving the sinking ship perhaps?



'Leaving the sinking ship perhaps?'
Sasa, the NSF is not a sinking ship.. it is a ship that never sailed, and will never see its maiden voyage!..
What would you expect from the unholy union of a corrupt former Baathist politician-turned-mafioso-turned-make-believe-patriot, and a defunkt, outdated, debased theocrat?..
