Assad continues to encourage Palestinian Terrorists....

This is truly an evil regime.
Syria's Baathist president, Bashar Assad, has directed Damascus-trained Palestinian Arabs in Lebanese refugee camps, as well as Gaza and West Bank terrorists under Syria's control, to escalate their anti-Israel operations, according to Arab, Israeli, and U.N. sources.

A U.N. official told The New York Sun that at two meetings conducted yesterday by Secretary-General Annan's special envoy, Terje Roed-Larsen, in Cairo, participants raised concerns that Mr. Assad would try to use attacks against Israel - carried out by his Palestinian Arab proxies - to deflect criticism of his regime. Mr. Larsen's meetings were with Egypt's president, Hosni Mubarak, and separately with the Palestinian leader, Mahmoud Abbas. The Egyptians invited Mr. Larsen to brief the U.N. envoy on an earlier meeting Mr. Mubarak had with Mr. Assad earlier this week .
