Shaykh `Adnan Al-`Ar`ur took an oath

This is amusing and has been playing on Syrian regime media.  Saudi-hosted fanatical cleric, Shaykh `Adnan Al-`Ar`ur (who is quite influential in the Syrian opposition and yet he is not mentioned ever in the Western media and has representatives in the Syrian National Council), is known for his nightly sectarian fulminations from a religious channel owned by Prince `Abdul-`Aziz bin Fahd.  He took an oath that he would close down his shop and would close down his program if Bashshar Al-Asad dares to go to Homs and give a talk there.  So the Syrian media are contrasting his oath with the visit by Bashshar to Baba Amr.
