billions going into defense while washington looks set to keep up support for revolutions even if they threaten its allies. next a former syrian politician persecuted and forced on the ground for more than ten years tells us what he thinks is going wrong with this country right now. he was a critic of the syrian authorities long before it was safe to do that spending fourteen years in prison for his political activism dr abdul aziz al hayat a prominent member of syria's domestic position is joining us now on r.t. thank you very much for time sir for receiving me syrian opposition has so many faces at this moment there bearded men with kalashnikovs there are some people who are trying to direct the uprising from abroad you represent grassroots opposition do you think that your long time goals for this country the future of it here in
2:32 pm
visage is actually being served by the ongoing question well it's a very important. question thank you for that. you know it's not easy now to decide that. what we've struggled for a long time to achieve in syria is within reach nowadays because too many complications happened in the uprising of syria i mean most of the most of the uprising started peacefully for democracy can really predict calls for freedom and dignity. but there was a curve of the events because the regime decided to treat that was to wish him only by military means forcing syrians to hold arms to defend themselves at the beginning and then there was a chance really an important chance for extremists and the opposition to enlarge their forces and to. gain support from some regional
2:33 pm
states and maybe global as well their national i mean. that's who i think started to get. worse and worse but we still stick to hope because we have to and we are still fighting to gain a peaceful political process in order to preserve the syrian people aims from their uprising do you have any. specific idea how we can start or you can start this political process because everybody is talking about every consideration but nobody knows how to carry this out. we are trying to. sort out. any kind of understanding any kind of agreement on the. international scale to calm things
2:34 pm
or the political parties involved including the americans versions trying is there a principle there of. the states that it's just. that everybody is losing and the result of the situation if it goes on will be a lose lose situation and no one will benefit from that. that's why everybody must cooperate. to congress the military groups first of all the regime second round groups although it was shown that it's time it's high time need to come to a cease fire to start negotiations about what to do and how to arrange some peaceful future for the country of course this includes the president and his family must step aside at least for
2:35 pm
a while. and the power must be passed on to some acceptable personnel from the regime acceptable to the regime and accept the opposition as well. to start with resolution of period in which. some new constitution and some new legality will be established in the country if those transparent elections here in visiting . would result in the current president assad getting the majority of votes would that be acceptable to you and i guess most importantly would that be acceptable acceptable to the world one says. any person accepts the principle of voting and the voting is really legal and transparent everyone must accept the results the outcome. the elections you spent fourteen
2:36 pm
years in prison and definitely your have an axe to grind with jessup's family why are you not among those who are carrying arms at this point you're not fighting him because first of all being a studying and practicing politics for decades and i came to the conclusion which is the only logical conclusion that arms will lead to the destruction of the country and to democracy that's why it's harmful way it's useless and it will. support the extremists on both sides that's why from the very beginning it was very clear for me and for others that peace for struggle is the only way towards a democratic future of the country you know in the western eyes the home grown
2:37 pm
civil of position and armed groups are perceived as allies given what you just said why haven't you or groups who support you've been more vocal in trying to distance themselves from using terror for achieving political goals among the armed opposition you have different political goes on and different political attitudes i believe many groups through the armed opposition declared. they will be. in favor of a political process on certain terms and conditions of course while others will not respond to that we have some stellar fifths some that isn't islamists who have their own agendas so among the sea real. the spirit.
2:38 pm
there are really connections with some armed. opposition groups. and there is a common understanding. among them not too hard to hear or see believe is not to attack any. infrastructure establishment or it's only illegal to use arms to defend lives and civilians now from the very beginning you've been strongly against. international intervention into syria in the forest and one can argue that what we have now in syria is a form of government military intervention because you have lower forms going through your borders even you admit that there are some foreign nationals fighting
2:39 pm
the syrian army in the north rich do you think is more damaging the open libyan style military intervention or covered by its so lasting intervention in the form of supplying arms believing. is. completely imaginary when you are right up like in syria it's impossible. all because circumstances of the syrian creature. circumstances what happened and why we're here to answer it is number two yes day after day the circle and the fighting in syria is. coming some kind of a proxy war now they off today very easy number one and the only group in the opposition. are becoming more and more hostages in the hands of their
2:40 pm
allies. are losing their. independent decision. they cannot apply what they think or believe and because they need support in arms nomination and fine until. it's at or etc etc freedom can mean very different things to. many different people and the footage that we often get from the north of the fighters. shouting allahu akbar . there are also reports that they are fighting for the creation of their islamic state. and my question to you is is there any danger that in search for greater political freedoms syria may lose other forms of freedom for example faucheux religious gender freedom and you know all those other aspects of dignity and freedom is simply very frankly yes there is
2:41 pm
a possibility now and it was not. created just now accommodated through days that the syrians may lose some of the freedoms that they are used to it's a possibility but there are other possibilities of well that's why we say now you cannot preserve your rights by just being afraid of what it you must be active. we believe that the majority of the syrians would not choose any kind or even just state i sometimes get an impression that here in syria the hatred for the opponent within some people is chong the law for their own country and they would rather be right than merciful to people around them how can you in the current circumstances and given your experience how can you foster the spirit of free
