The Syria Times Online, 5 Years On!

A brief review of the Syria Times Online: www.syriatimes.sy , relaunched On October 6, 2012, and of President Bashar Al-Assad unofficial Website: www.presidentassad.net, launched in 2007- as a personal dedication by Dr. Mohamad Abdo Al-Ibrahim- necessitates indeed at least, given the millions of clicks and visits from around the globe, a one-year thorough reading for what has been stated by H.E. President Bashar Al-Assad, considered by many as, not only the defender, protector and most popular humanitarian world leader, but too as the second to none observer, analyst and strategist president journalist, especially when it comes to foreign mainstream media language, discourse and dubious goals!

"Pictures cannot tell you the story, even videos, everything could be manipulated these days. I wouldn’t say that there are no such attacks on any building, but as a government, we don’t have a policy to destroy hospitals or schools or any such facility for a simple reason: first of all, morally, the second reason is that if we do so, we are offering the militants the incubator, the social incubator that they’ve been looking for, it’s going to be a gift, something we wouldn’t do because it’s against our interests. It’s like shooting ourselves in the foot," stated President Assad in his Danish TV2 Interview, October 6, 2016.

Strategic victory

 Lifting the ISIS siege of Deir Ezzor city is a great victory as it puts an end to dark days imposed by ISIS terrorists on the city for three years. This achievement is a turning point in eliminating terrorism as it brings us closer to the moment of the final victory. Breaking the siege on Deir Ezzor city is a strategic shift in the war on terrorism and it confirms the ability of the Syrian Arab Army and its allies and their determination to defeat the terrorist project completely in Syria.

After a series of successful operations, units of our armed forces, in cooperation with the supporting and allied forces and backed by the Syrian and Russian air forces, have completed the second phase of their operations deep in the Syrian Badia (desert) and they managed through qualitative operations and heroic actions to break the siege on our people who were besieged for more than three years in Deir Ezzor.

The siege-breaking operation came after the forces advancing from the direction of Raqqa/Deir Ezzor met with the forces that have stood firmly in Deir Ezzor, protected the residents there, achieved heroics and set a model to be followed in sacrifice and steadfastness that led to this great victory. Hundreds of ISIS terrorists were killed or injured during the operation, in addition to the destruction of many of their sites, fortifications and hundreds of vehicles. The victory constitutes a turning point in the war on terrorism and affirms the ability of the Syrian Arab Army and its allies to defeat the terrorist project in Syria and foil the fragmentation plans of its sponsors and supporters.

This achievement is also an important point for the expansion of military operations in the region and its surroundings to eliminate the remaining hotbeds of ISIS terrorist organization, whose military structure has been destroyed and which has collapsed rapidly under the strikes of the Syrian Army. This achievement is also a vital artery for delivering supplies to the city and the forces defending it.

The victory highlights the resilience of the people and steadfastness of the valiant armed forces in Deir Ezzor. The Syrian Arab Army will remain the shield of the homeland and its invulnerable fortress. Deir Ezzor victory reflects determination of Syrian Arab army to continue the war on terrorism until eliminating it and the restoration of security and stability to the territory of the Syrian Arab Republic. The lifting of this siege provides helpful conditions to the achievement of another necessary goal, which is the total liberation of the Deir Ezzor city from the terrorists.

The great victory will increase determination to defeat the terrorists until security and stability are restored to the entirety of Syria. The situation in Syria is developing with the Syrian Army’s achieving victories in its war against terrorism. Terrorism is a complicated global matter and the main problem is that some sides continue to provide aid to the extremist terrorist organizations.

The situation in Syria has been radically changing in favor of the Syrian Army with more areas being liberated from terrorism. Current talks in Geneva and Astana will lead to a political solution to crisis in Syria after victories being realized by the Syrian Arab army with the support of Russia, Iran and resistance forces in the region. The end of crisis in Syria is near after lifting the siege of Der Ezzor.

The victory in Der Ezzor is a slap to the international and regional forces, mainly the US, Zionist Entity, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and their tools in the region that bet on the project of fragmenting Syria. The lifting of siege of Deir Ezzor city is an overwhelming defeat for the Zionist terrorist plot in the region. The victory affirms that Syria will remain the land of dignity and Arabism.

The lifting of the ISIS siege of Deir Ezzor is a historic victory over the forces of evil and Zionist and Wahhabi terrorism. The achievement comes with the series of victories being realized by the Syrian Arab army against terrorism.

The reopening of the Deir Ezzor road is a strategic disaster for ISIS, which is now at its weakest since 2014 and seems unable to break out of an accelerating spiral of defeats.

Syria will ever remain united as all the schemes against it began to be exposed. The huge achievements realized by the Syrian army earlier in Aleppo and  in Deir Ezzor are turning points on the long way for defeating terrorism and fulfilling the aspirations of the Syrian people and Syria’s friends in the region and the world.

The Brave Savior!

Had it not been for President Bashar Hafez Al-Assad, not only Syria, but the major part of the region would have been turned by now into a Moslem Brotherhood ISIS satellite region in the US-Israeli orbit of exploitation, subjugation and hegemony.

The reality of the ongoing terrorist war against Syria, people, Army and President, and for years, does assert the heroic, brave and strategic role of President Assad in standing tall, firm and steadfast in defending his country, friends, allies and citizens against terrorism.

It has been a fierce war by the greedy powers of the new colonial and expansionist powers, using every possible means of distortion, lies, fabrications and slaughter! Syria's geography, history, civilization and roles was the target as to create new realities and facts on the ground in the interest of sinister greedy objectives of the new colonials!

Behind the Movement

Never before has a prime minister of the Zionist entity appeared so confused as did Benjamin Netanyahu in his meeting with President Vladimir Putin. Netanyahu was looking through a set of papers he was holding, as if he’s hoping to find a way out. This is the first time he relied on what was written in his notes in such an important summit meeting. The viewer did not need to hear what he was saying, because Putin’s stern expressions expressed his suspicion of the repeated Israeli usual dull hyperbolic claims about the Iranian threat, and the Russian President refused Netanyahu’s aggressive schemes. In Pravda’s report on 25 August 2017, entitled “Netanyahu’s nightmare becomes a reality,” the newspaper reveals that Putin answered Netanyahu saying: “Iran is a strategic ally of Russia in the Middle East.” And when the latter exaggerated in describing the Iranian threat, President Putin responded: “Unfortunately, I cannot help you here.” Pravda reports that Netanyahu failed to convince Putin of the -by now- boring Israeli argument about “Iranian expansion in the Middle East.” Commenting on the Putin-Netanyahu summit, the Israeli newspaper Maariv said in its reports on 23 August 2017: “Israel has become isolated on the international scene.” It’s only friend now is the ruling Wahhabi families in the Gulf, whose media, representatives and hired mercenaries mindlessly repeat Netanyahu’s claims. But what is behind this Israeli hysteria and the visits by its official to the US and Russia in order to promote these “threats” to Israeli’s security? And what has happened recently that provoked such a reaction from the Zionist entity’s leaders? Does Netanyahu and the ruling clic in Tel Aviv really think that world power are as stupid and naive as the rulers of Gulf Sheikhdoms?

Syria is THE Life!

This is Syria, the country has been encountering, and -on behalf of the entire globe- the enemies of life, light, amity, and peace!

The foreign-backed terrorists, groomed-up, trained and armed-even with chemicals, according to proofs on the ground, have been destroying, slaughtering, robbing and killing every piece of thought light, freedom and progress! In vain!

Syria has its Army, Soldiers, has its brothers, allies and friends as to united hand in hand fight the forces of darkness, hatred, extremism and of death. Syria has its true Syrians and its true Army, Brothers and President of heroism, truth, dignity and honor, elected and voted for, H.E. President! Bashar Hafez Al-Assad, under whose patronage, the 59th session of Damascus International Fair was declared open!

The grandeur  of the Syrian civilization, history,  people, has indeed been intermingled with the imprints of the Late President, Hafez Al-Assad, Martyrs, Mothers' pride and children's tears and eagerness for their family members, who were martyred as to save Syria from the enemies' bloody and schemes, which used and even exploited slaughter for cheap meaningless political means!

This is Syria Al-Assad standing as the fortress in the face of the mushrooming increasing craziness of terrorism! Syria Al-Assad and its brothers' steadfastness and fight against terrorism not only made the 59th Damascus Fair possible, but proved indeed   that, thanks to the sacrifices of all Martyrs of the war against terrorism, Syria is the throbbing heart of all LIFE!

The region and the world at large are to benefit and be better once Syria is safe and better. Once peace, instead of terrorism and occupation, would prevail, the humanity in its entirety is getting better! Hope, the ongoing in Syria is to humanize the globe and make life indeed sustainable and not unbearable!

Those who spent billions to destroy life, civilization and humanity should seize the available opportunity for repentance! A Marshal Plan is indeed in the entire humanity interests. Wake up call as for terrorism-backers to make a u-turn and build peace, stability and security!

''The 59th session has a message to the entire world that the will of life for Syrians has ever been stronger than terrorism, hoisting the flags of life victory against death, flag of right against wrong, flag of honor against treason and of independence against submission,'' said the Premier, Engineer Imad Khamis.

Premier Khamis, added in his opening address to the 59th session of Damascus International Fair,

That the new chapter of victory would not have been written, had it not been for the blood and sacrifices of the Syrian Arab Army, allies, and friends' blood in defence integrity and independence.

All bids to down the Syrian State, infrastructure, resources, not to mention the unjust sanction by the West and some Arab rulers, failed, underscored Premier Khamis. In his live speech to representatives of 43 participating countries in the 63-year old international Damascus Fair even.

The losses inflicted by terrorism, be social or economic, are high and painful as a shock to the world conscience, but what consoles is that the war of terrorism was not able to kill the Syrians' determination to live nor their commitment to the principles and rights, underscored Premier Khamis.

The Premier cited the of investment opportunities available as to rebuild and develop growth in Syria.

As H. E. President Bashar Al-Assad outlined in his landmark inauguration speeches that the enemies of Syria  continue to support terrorism in Syria have tried to destroy all aspects of life within it.  The killing, which targeted Syrians from all walks of life without discrimination or exception was concurrent with the systematic destruction of our infrastructure, which took decades to build and consumed the efforts, money, sweat and blood of generations of Syrians.

President Al-Assad added that there is no doubt that this widespread destruction, which has affected the entire nation, has also affected every individual, particularly in terms of people’s livelihood.

 Since the greatest damage to our economy was inflicted on the vital material structures of economic growth and sustainability, our economic recovery should start from the same point by focusing on rebuilding these material structures: the buildings, houses, factories, roads, and all other forms of infrastructure that was destroyed or sabotaged. This in itself is a very wide sector that will benefit the different strata of society without exception, and will influence positively and strongly the other economic sectors, which will not recover fully without a comprehensive reconstruction, President Al-Assad underscored.

President Al-Assad asserted that reconstruction is the title of the economy for the coming period, asserting the need as to:

''Reconstruction in all fields and economy sectors, support for handcrafts, small and middle industries, as well as for public and agriculture sectors" are among the state priorities during the coming stage.''

The Syrians have consensus on the protection of the homeland, reconstruction as well as on eliminating terrorism,"
''Those who are waiting or a foreign solution to end the war are living in an illusion because the ‘political solution’, as it is called, can only be based on internal reconciliations, which have proven to be very effective on more than one occasion.  I stress that we will continue to proceed on this course because it saves Syrian blood, restores security, leads to the return of the displaced, the reconstruction of those areas and to thwarting any foreign schemes designed around internal shortcomings.''

''Since the greatest damage to our economy was inflicted on the vital material structures of economic growth and sustainability, our economic recovery should start from the same point by focusing on rebuilding these material structures: the buildings, houses, factories, roads, and all other forms of infrastructure that was destroyed or sabotaged. This in itself is a very wide sector that will benefit the different strata of society without exception, and will influence positively and strongly the other economic sectors, which will not recover fully without a comprehensive reconstruction.''

''Reconstruction is the title of the economy for the coming period. We need to concentrate our collective efforts on this area and should work, in parallel, to restore all other sectors that will be complementary to reconstruction especially craftsmen and the small and medium-sized industries that can grow and expand very quickly, creating jobs in a short period of time.  We will continue our strategic support of the public and agricultural sectors, which constitute the main lever of the Syrian economy and had a significant role in our resilience during the current crisis.  The reconstruction process and the associated economic recovery should not be linked in timing to the end of the crisis.  In fact, the state has already started to create the necessary legislations and regulatory framework that will facilitate and encourage investment in this area.''

''Let us all start, hand in hand, the process of rebuilding Syria in order to be worthy of her. Let our race against time be in favour of building not destruction; and let us continue to prove, as we have done during the past three years, that the will of Syrians is many folds stronger than the will and acts of terrorists and traitors.''

''We need to concentrate our collective efforts on reconstruction.''
