[ Ed. note – Iyad Ameen Madani, the secretary general of the so-called Organization of Islamic Cooperation, says “We don’t see a position for President Bashar Assad in any future Syrian solution.” The fact that Madani is a former official of the Saudi monarchy and that the “conference” where he made this statement took place in Turkey, one of the principle backers of ISIS, probably tells us all we need to know. Nonetheless, Mark Glenn, in the video above, offers some additional thoughts on the matter.
Meanwhile, the Syrian people are voting today to elect members to their parliament–which is as it should be. All people should have the right to choose their own leaders–not have them selected for them by foreign governments. ]

Voting centers, which number over 7,300, opened their doors to voters at 7 AM and will remain open until 7 PM. The duration of the elections can be extended for five hours by a decision from the Higher Judicial Committee for Elections.
