Former Syrian Vice President, Abed al-Halim Khadem, now in exile in France, continued his anti-Assad rhetoric over the weekend by saying that the Syrian president would be overthrown from power by the end of the year. In an interview to the German daily Der Spiegel, Khadem said, "Assad's regime has already begun to fall, and I don't believe his regime will last past the end of this year." Khadem has recently accused Assad for direct responsibility for the assassination of former Lebanese President Rafik al-Hariri.
