Meet some of the lousy Syrian opposition

Here is a sample of some very lousy elements of the Syrian opposition:  "For his part, Rami Abdul Rahman, director of the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, told Asharq Al-Awsat that “the al-Assad regime is well aware, from the Libyan experience, that the west is in a strong position with regards to transforming Syria into a democratic society.” He also expressed his personal opinion that “Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques is the most influential Arab leader in the Syrian street, more than any other Arab leaders, for he enjoys the love and appreciation from sections of the Syrian street, whilst also having influence with the ruling regime in Damascus.”"  This center is the most cited source on news on Syria in the world today, and it seems to me that it is high time it is introduced as "Saudi-funded".  (thanks Nicholas)
