Fearing for the stability of its only real ally in the region, the Iranian regime media outlets have begun to downplay and even disparage the protests in Syria, claiming that what is happening in Libya, Bahrain and other countries in the region have nothing to do with what is happening in Syria.
The Islamic Republic News Agency also reports that Bashar Jafari, the Syrian representative to the U.N. has also said: “Those who who compare the issues in Syria with events in Libya and other parts of the region are delusional. There is an Arabic proverb that says human beings are always claiming to know things about things they know nothing. The major global problem today is the ignorance of some of the world leaders. Anyone who claims to know what is happening in Syria without knowing anything about Syria has proven to be ignorant.”
