Lebanese Communist Party on Syria

I was utterly displeased with the weak and mild statement that was put out by the Lebanese Communist Party in reaction to the arrest of Salamah Kilah.  The statement said that Kilah was no "terrorist" as if the rest of the political prisoners in Syria are terrorists.  And some people have written to me that the new Yasariyyah TV Channel (named the Left One in Arabic) has some Syrian involvement particularly from Qadri Jamil (a loyal Syrian opposition figure who appears on Syrian regime TV regularly), along with the participation and partnership with Lebanese Communist Party.
