[An Nahar] Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi on Wednesday told a meeting of Arab League
...an organization of Arabic-speaking states with 22 member countries and four observers. The League tries to achieve Arab consensus on issues, which usually leaves them doing nothing but a bit of grimacing and mustache cursing...
ministers it was time for the Syrian regime to step down and added that a resolution of the crisis was an Arab responsibility.
"I tell the Syrian regime 'there is still a chance to end the bloodshed'. Now is the time for change... no time to be wasted talking about reform," Morsi told the Cairo meeting.
"Don't take the right step at the wrong time... because that would be the wrong step," he said.
He urged Hereditary President-for-Life Bashir
Oppressor of the Syrians and the Lebs...
to "take lessons from recent history" and step aside, in reference to Arab Spring revolts that overthrew the longtime dictators of Tunisia, Egypt and Libya.
