Syria has long been a source of frustration to those of us who would like to see Assad deposed, but do not want direct military intervention by the US. The problem is that the Syrian opposition to Assad has been so disjointed, that it was impossible to know where aid would be most effective. Fortunately, that has changed.

This is a painfully complicated situation, though I believe that supporting a new beginning in Syria is in our best interest for long time peace and the prosperity of the people.

I hope this coalition can hold itself together long enough to help Syria on the road to peace.

"Khatib, the imam of the historic Umayyad mosque in Damascus before he was arrested for supporting the uprising, is seen as an independent as he is not linked to the Muslim Brotherhood or any other Islamist party.

The National Coalition also appointed two deputy leaders — prominent dissident Riad Seif, who was the architect of the new opposition structure, and secular female opposition figure Suhair al-Atassi, who hails from the central city of Homs, one of the bastions of the uprising.

A third post was left vacant for a representative of Syria’s Kurdish minority. "

For me, it is still too early to tell if this will provide the stability and peace that the Syrian people so richly deserve. However there is hope in the base of the leadership. It is too bad that so many people died to get this far. I hope that this will hasten the end of conflict.

Hope Syria settles down and reaches peace because here in Israel it's a great threat and we have also been bombed from their side the last two days, something that hasn't happened since 1973...
