US – based Syrian dissident and human rights activist, Ammar Abdulhamid, discusses the roots of the Syrian rebellion and exposes the hypocrisy of the Assad regime on VOA’s Press Conference USA with host Carol Castiel.
Syrian human rights activist Ammar Abdulhamid says democracy protesters are disgusted with Iran’s support of Assad regime. Protesters also burn Russian and Chinese flags. Ammar tells Carol Castiel, host of VOA’s Press Conference USA, that western leaders have nothing to fear from a post-Assad Syria.
Noted Syrian human rights activist Ammar Abdulhamid tells VOA’s Carol Castiel and Dakhil Shammo that the formal Arab opposition groups remain cut off from the street. The Syrian revolution is being made by the new protest movement in the street. They are more pragmatic and inclusive than the “official” opposition in Syria who are stuck in their old ideologies.
Ammar Abdulhamid tells Carol Castiel and Dakhil Shammo on VOA’s Press Conference USA that pro-democracy protesters outnumber the regime supporters and Bashar is unsuccessfully exploiting the sectarian divide.
Outspoken Syrian dissident and human rights activist Ammar Abdulhamid tells VOA’s Carol Castiel that if the international community, particularly Washington, said unequivocally that Bashar al Assad must step down, it would embolden those in the military and business community who have yet to abandon the regime.
