Lebanese press and Syria

This may surprise you, but are you aware that the Lebanese press which has been most critical of the Syrian regime has been As-Safir and Al-Akhbar, and not the March 14 Hariri-Saudi press?  In fact, Al-Mustaqbal, the Hariri rag, led its front page with the news that Saudi King was reassured about the situation in Syria.  This is another tough critique of the Syrian regime by comrade Ibrahim Amin who even recommended putting the cousin of Bashshar on trial (without naming him).
