West and the Role of Institutions

The idea of the state was based primarily on the foundations of the various forms and functions of the society, which are essentially a public service for the society, whether security, social or economic matters. The institution-building was based on legal rules that control public behavior against rights and duties, the idea of citizenship and the rule of law.

In this context, the institutions played an important role in building and stabilizing the modern state based on the idea of justice and good governance. Despite the dedication of the institutions, this did not miss or negate the idea of leadership . where the belief in the West tends to the idea of leadership and the disappearance of the role of institutions and the adoption of the resolution is one of the most important reasons for the two world wars in the last century.

The basic idea that should be mentioned in this context is that the Western liberal political style does not allow the role of institutions to be bypassed and does not accept the idea of monopoly of the decision even from the head of the institution or inflated the role of the person at the expense of the institution, The general principle is that the institution is greater than its president.

 What the American president is pointing at in his decisions and choices is an indication that we have a president who wants to lead the largest liberal capitalist state with an oriental mentality that has its own understanding and culture in its view of power that is structurally different from that of Western liberal states. In addition, The American president is a prisoner of the culture of money. He is looking at the financial gain, not the political, because he views America as a major company, not as an economic, political and military superpower.

In the footsteps of their ancestors


The great and landslide victories recently realized by the Syrian Arab Army and the allied forces, especially in eastern Ghouta, are considered a continuation of the relentless and unabated march of struggle started by the heroes of national independence who fought the Ottoman and French occupiers and offered great sacrifices and forced them out of their homeland. The steadfastness of Syrians today was inspired by the legacy of the heroes who achieved independence. The heroic deeds and valiant acts of Yousef al-Azmeh, Sheikh Saleh al-Ali, Sultan Basha al-Atrash and others have been an inexhaustible source of inspiration for the Syrian people and army in their battle against Takfiri terrorism and its sponsors. The Syrian Army and the allied forces are cracking down on terrorist organizations in all Syrian cities in defense of the homeland and the values of justice and freedom, and to ward off extremism and subversive takfiri ideas. The heroes of the Syrian Arab Army are now following in the footsteps of the legacy of their forefathers who achieved independence in clearing every inch of the homeland of the terrorism that has been exported to Syria form over 83 states with the aim of destroying the country and creating sectarian war among Syrian people to facilitate the passing of the Zionist project against Syria an the Arab region as a whole.

As the Syrian people celebrate the 72nd anniversary of the Independence Day, they are more determined to step up their struggle against takfiri terrorism and its supporters. This year's celebrations coincided with landslide victories realized by the heroes of the Syrian Arab army against al-Nosra and ISIS terrorists in different Syrian areas, the most recent of which was the liberation of the eastern Ghouta and uprooting the terrorist organizations stationed there for six years.

Desperate Attempt

From the very beginning of the crisis in Syria, the US and Israel have been involved in supporting the Takfiri terrorist organizations, especially in the aftermath of every victory realized by the Syrian Arab army. The recent tripartite aggression launched by the US, Britain and France is considered a desperate attempt to help the defeated terrorists as they were recently uprooted from eastern Ghouta by the Syrian Arab army and the allied forces.  The new aggression on Syria came as a revenge for the defeat of these three countries’ terrorist proxies in Ghouta.

71st anniversary of the Baath Party Socialist Party

  It is a great co-incidence that the Syrian and Arab people mark today an important turning point in the modern history of the Arab nation, namely the Baath Party foundation anniversary, as the zero hour for announcing victory over takfiri terrorism is approaching.

As the Syrian and Arab people mark the 71st anniversary of the Baath Arab Socialist Party (BASP) foundation, they become more determined to adhere to the noble principles of the Party which has always been expressing the aspirations of the Arab people nation-wide.  The Baath Party, which has been coping with the people’s struggle since its founding conference on April 7th, 1947 is now strengthening its commitment to its responsibilities in defending the Arab causes of destiny and confronting the conspiracies being hatched against the Arab people.

The anniversary comes while the Syrian Arab people are still confronting an internationally-led war just because they adhered to their independent decision in the region where genuine independence became scarce as the Arab League was subjugated by the Gulf petro-dollar blackmail to be a tool in the conspiracy being hatched against Syria.

The fierce war against Syria is confronted by the strong determination by Syrian people to go on and defend the homeland and the pan-Arab thought. What is happening in Syria doesn’t aim at creating democracy or justice; rather it seeks to change its firm positions and stances which have been advocated by the Baath Party since its foundation. Throughout its eventful march, the Baath Party Socialist Party has advocated and enhanced the culture of resistance to liberate the occupied Arab territories. For this reason, Zionism and its supporters hatched the global conspiracy Syria. The events taking place in Syria came to realize Israel’s goals after the failure of its aggression on Arab resistance movements. This global conspiracy seeks to weaken the resistance axis as Syria constitutes the beating heart of this axis. However, the developments on the ground caused the Israelis to become increasingly worried instead. The danger of toppling the Syrian state has passed, and the threat of dividing Syria has passed as well, and most states now adopt the political solution for the crisis in Syria, thanks to the unity of the Syrian people and the heroic deeds of the Syrian army in confronting Wahhabi takfiri terrorism.

Land Day

Every year on March 30, Palestinians demonstrate their commitment to resisting Israeli occupation. But this year's commemoration coincided with Trump's ominous  declaration to transfer the US embassy to Jerusalem.  The  Palestinians are planning a massive demonstration beginning on March 30 and extending through May 15, the anniversary of the Nakba - "the catastrophe", when more than 750,000 people were driven from their homes to make way for the creation of Israel.
