Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad called the Damascus regime to engage in dialogue with the Syrian people in order to put a stop to the violence and reach an understanding regarding the political reforms in the country, Lebanese Al-Manar television reported on Thrusday.
"The people and government of Syria must come together to reach an understanding," he told the station, which is run by the Iranian and Syrian-backed Hezbollah movement.
The online website "Now Lebanon" quoted Ahmadinejad's interview in Al-Manar, saying that the Iranian president claimed the violence in Syria only "serves Zionist interests."
"When there is a problem between the people and their leaders they must sit down together to reach a solution, away from violence," he said. "One must not kill the other."
Despite these declarations, Ahmadinejad conveyed a different message back in 2009, when thousands of Iranians took to the streets to protest against his re-election. YouTube videos appeared online, showing the regime's militia firing at the masses, killing dozens and injuring thousands.

I say BS , armagedonajad knows very well that if the Syrian regime falls , it could only lead to the end of Hizbullah in Lebanon , and that is the last thing the shiat want to happen over there , so i call this a lie or him just playing with words business as usual.

The time for sitting down and talking has come and gone. The Syrian people are never
going to allow Bashar al-Assad and his regime to remain in power after what they have
done. He has sealed his own fate and will end up like gaddafi has in Libya

Yes. Israel sneaks its sub over to the South China sea and sinks the Shi Lang.
LONDON — Iran's elite military units have been deployed to attack protesters of the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad.
