A most revealing and shocking statement

According to the World Socialist Web Site [www.wsws.org]:

Abr Moussa, the Arab league's secretary general, warned that the war
would "open the gates of hell," and Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak
said it would ignite "a gigantic fire" of violence and terror. Syria's
al-Baath newspaper, the official mouthpiece of President Bashar
el-Asad's Baathist regime, put it even more bluntly. It said, "The first
shot in the Anglo-Saxon war on Iraq will be the coup de grace to the
corpse of the Arab system-that least influential player in what is
happening in the world today."

I don't know which "Arab system" the Syrians are referring to, but are
they actually talking about themselves?
