Believe me, I am no expert on the Middle East...so all I'm doing is sharing information about what I've learned by reading their own words on their own websites. This doesn't sound very neighborly to me...but read it for yourself.

Political Situation in Syria
It seems that Bashar al-Assad will remain in power for the moment once the icons of the old guard who are impeding the execution of the American reforms are removed together with the security teams whose hands are tainted with the blood of the demonstrators and once the unilateral dominion of the ruling Baath party is terminated, even if it led to its dissolution.
Answers to Questions
It is important to study the issues according to their original plane when making a political link. This would be by identifying the root from which the events have originated and the track towards which they are proceeding. It would be wrong to pile up the events and the issues on the top of each other without the presence of a link between them, or for simply suspecting the presence of a link. In order to maintain the soundness of political perception, it is imperative to discard logic and not to resort to universal analogy and generalisation.
The International situation
The United States of America is forging ahead towards strengthening her grip on the international issues in terms of overseeing these issues and conducting the various crisis. She endeavours to rapidly establish a host of fresh relations and conventions, through which she will be able to maintain her unilateral dominance of the international situation, and to prevent any other state or any other force from competing with her or rivalling her or even from aiming at budging her from the apex of the international situation.
One of the most important fundamental basics of explaining the current political events in the wake of the unilateral dominance of the U.S. over the international situation is reflected in the fact that the U.S. endeavours to establish and promote the world peace through the regional situations, regimes and the international relations in a manner that would enable her to establish hegemony over the world.
Changes that the U.S.A has endeavoured to introduce to the U.N
One of the fundamental objectives of the United States, of which she has already achieved a great deal while on her way towards completing the rest of her objectives ever since she effectively participated in establishing the United Nations Organisation, was to destroy the role of Europe in running international politics and controlling the international situation, and to turn Europe into being part of the world policy
A unified Europe, after all these changes, is not expected to have any effect on the international situation. This would rather consolidate the American position as the sole superpower in the international situation. America’s use of the unified European stance in the international issues will help disguise the ugly face of the American supremacy in the international situation, i.e. the “Uni-polar Policy”. America does not object to allowing the European states to gain some benefit in return for this. Meanwhile, the European states see no harm in supporting the American policy aimed at establishing peace and stability in the world, because this serves the interests of the European companies as well as the interests and investments of America.
Out of these information and current events, and out of this profound political perception of the leading superpower’s reality, and what may become of this state and these relations in terms of changes that necessitate accurate pursuance and sound linkage, it is possible to determine the situation of the Islamic World, in order to eradicate America in her quality as a head of Kufr and a state of corruption. At the same time, the hope rests on those who work towards resuming the Islamic way of life to press their ranks closely together, rally their forces, gather the faculties of the Ummah and activate her dormant powers of goodness, under the international conditions that drive nations and various human societies to search for higher values and aspirations than the existing ones, amidst the fierce domestic struggles and the cauterisation by the corrupt values of the Western system and its economic, cultural and social policies, as well as its colonial legacies. Now that the means of diffusion, pursuance and knowledge have become diverse and sophisticated, it is no longer easy to conceal the facts from peoples and nations, and it is no longer easy to get away with the acts of deception and distortion in the long term. Hence, the policies of economic privatisation, the market economy, the so called democracy and the fight against dictatorship will have direct adverse effects upon the relationship of the ruling factions and the political circles, with the peoples and the rest of the various sections of society. This will lead to instabilities in the viewpoint about the nature of the current relationships in society and will expose the reality of the authority that supervises such relationships. This in turn will pave the way, in an effective manner, to rob them of their sleep and to shake the earth beneath them. It will also develop peoples’ and nations’ desire to seek the right to determine the reality of their respective authorities. Hence, the antecedence in deciding which direction the settlement of this aspect should take will undoubtedly be in favour of those who seriously work in the field of resuming the Islamic way of life and within a sound programme. This necessitates from the Da'awah carriers to have a tremendous determination and a formidable mettle, to work assiduously towards pressing close together the ranks of their Ummah and to be her weapon in her war against the Kuffar, so that they succeed together in implementing Islam, uproot the influence of Kufr, restore the light of Islam and its political entity, remove the leading superpower from her position and rearrange the international relations according to what Islam stipulates in terms of justice and mercy.
