The Syrian opposition on Monday rejected a proposal by the Arab League to start a dialogue between the government of Bashar Assad and the Opposition, Israel Radio reported.

Abdel Helim Khadam, a leader of the anti-Assad movement and former deputy of the Syrian president, said in an interview on the American Radio station "Savannah" that after killing thousands of Syrians, injuring many and imprisoning tens of thousands, it is hard to believe that someone in the Syrian nation would agree to let Assad stay in power, according to the report.
