The Syrian opposition is more inclined towards the postponement of addressing the issue of al-Nusra Front, basically owing to the bloody developments that take place on daily basis. They are, in fact, quite justified because you might plan to discuss the matter in the evening then wake up in the morning to news of another massacre, thus decide to put the whole discussion off, at least until the dead are buried.
This is what exactly has been happening with me for two consecutive weeks. Last week, Lebanese Minister Jibran Bassil decided that another statement needed to be issued about Syrian refugees in Lebanon and this week the Syrian regime, through the Homs massacre, drove us to want to postpone the discussion till after the funeral.
The model of al-Nusra has always served the Syrian regime’s ends and which always revolve about stripping the conflict of its political dimensionHazem al-Amin
