Wrong Conduct and the Desire for Revenge

Anyone who believes that a certain pattern from any community organization or political , cultural practice constitutes a criterion for civilization and urbanization is mistaken, as democracy and the correct political practice has forms, methods and models, and are based on social modernization which is variant completely to destruction, and contrary to the principle of the social deconstruction practiced by Takfiri groups and other groups calling itself opposition and are supported by the West and speaks from outside the borders of the homeland.

 The reform steps have come so far emanating from our history, our culture and our civilizational character, stemming from the needs of our society and the requirements of our reality. Where these reform steps are considered a start to what will be the outcome of building a modern state and solid democratically capable to withstand whatever shocks may be.

 The success of any modernizing experience is conditioned to  social conscious, cultural and political level, but this has to come expressing a real will of the community, and not as an implementation to external destructive theses that intend to eliminate the Syrian society and the destruction of its cultural and historical components to satisfy the goals and desires for revenge against Syria as a resisting country which lives in a state of social diversity, which a lot of the countries that claim civilization, democracy lack and fight us with their ignorance, backwardness and accumulated funds.

These funds form the spearhead of the aggressive U.S. Zionist project with the help of regional tools and the result is to dismantle the Syrian society. The goal is to return Syria back and convert the destined issues in the Arab-Zionist conflict to peripheral issues.

Through the daily events of the crisis, Syrians see that there is an exclusionary and Takfiri thought that motivates murder and terrorism against Syrian citizens and can't be right to be a model for what is meant to be Syria the future.

The national mission today is to find appropriate ways to talk among ourselves without external interference and dictates imposed by Western agendas in order to get the form of effective and objective dialogue, which is considered a platform and a base for the construction of a democratic state.

Dogs Bark and the Caravan Moves on




Some of the negative regional and international reactions to President Bashar Al-Assad's January 6th, 2013 speech are indeed irresponsible, expected, unjustified and reckless. Such reactions are out of place, time, and prove but the involvement of regional and international governments in the ongoing crisis in Syria. The speech was, however, addressed to '' all those who want dialogue and all those who want to see a political solution in the near future in Syria''

The speech, historic and remarkable by all accounts, wasn't addressed to ''those who don't want dialogue''. Thus, all of their shallow reactions and comments were but scoring a goal after the referee's final-match whistle; they have wasted their time, the same way they have been wasting their sources and petrodollars for the killing of the Syrians, and the destruction of Syria, a big thorn in their throats, at times causing hunger for the greedy ewes eying the Syrian green nature, resources and strategic geopolitical position and role.

The bloody trouble makers, intruders, and colonialists want but what they consider a tasty piece of the Syrian cake; they have exploited every means and ways to weaken, destabilize and dismember Syria- but in vain. So, their reckless reactions were a copy for their sinister, terrorist and aggressive practices against the majority of the Syrians and their bread, infrastructure, and above all against their security, tranquillity and stability.

H.E. President Al-Assad's speech included every possible generous idea, proposal and invitation, including even the so-far achieved and enacted laws, decrees, parties, elections, Constitution and reform measures. What matters for President Al-Assad is but Syria, a country that is thousands of years old, the Syrian sovereignty, and independent national decision. The Syrians' national interests are second to none, and the Syrians' Army achievements, voting and popular referendums, ''not through the president, government, dialogue or any other thing'' are but the deciding factor.

Iran: Supporters of Syrian Nation Should Pay Heed to Assad's Peace Plan


TEHRAN (ST)- A senior Iranian official stressed that any country which claims to be advocate of the progress and well-being of the Syrian nation should support President Bashar al-Assad's peace initiative.

Senior Presidential Advisor Mojtaba Samareh Hashemi made the remarks in a meeting with Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal al-Miqdad in Tehran on Sunday.

He said that Assad's peace plan matches the six-point peace plan the Islamic Republic unveiled recently.

On Sunday, Assad voiced his readiness for dialogue with the opposition and political parties in Syria. The Syrian leader also proposed general elections, adoption of a new constitution as well as a national reconciliation conference.

"The Syrian president's new initiative clears the way for a stronger presence by Syria in politics and in resolving (ongoing) problems, and I believe that anyone who claims to be a supporter of the Syrian nation and its progress must support this plan," Samareh Hashemi stated.


President al-Assad has outlined 'important initiative', says Zinin

MOSCOW,(ST)_ Russian Professor has said President Bashar al-Assad's speech delivered today is important and includes initiative to halt violence. 

Professor and Intellectual at the International Relations University of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Yuri Zinin, told SANA reporter: "The President's speech contained a very important  initiative to halt violence in Syria and avoid deteriorating situation."

He sees that regional and international powers have to listen to this speech to end foreign meddling in Syria's affairs, noting that the  continuation of meddling would increase number of victims and it would be difficult to stop violence then.

The professor hoped that the whole world would read the speech carefully and correctly.

He cited that the speech is addressing all Syrian citizens including those who really seek democratic changes. 

"President al-Assad has not left out, in his speech, voicing thanks  to Russia, China, Iran and other countries that stand by Syria and defend principles of justice and right in international relations," Zinin said.

He added that Syria has turned to be a target for a fierce aggression launched by international terrorist forces that flew- like ravens- from all over the world and alighted on the Syrian land which has a great history.

President al-Assad delivered on Sunday a speech at the Opera House in Damascus in which he set out a plan including national dialogue conference and a new government, but demanded regional and western countries stop funding and arming terrorist groups in Syria first.

The President said that Syria is in a state of war in every sense of the word, adding that:""The nation is for all and we all must protect it."
