Personal Heroes!

 "It was President Assad’s interview with RT in 2012 that started to wake me up about Syria in the first place. Until I watched that, I could not have picked out a picture of him or perhaps not even been able to confidently locate Syria on a map. I was an all-too-typical American, full of opinions about the Middle East but empty of knowledge, understanding or in many ways I’m ashamed to say, empathy.

While acting as Commander in Chief during one of the most complex and brutal conflicts in history, against an array of enemies including the US, UK, France, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Turkey and of course the Muslim Brotherhood, President Assad has also had to fight an unprecedented information war against the most well-coordinated and sophisticated media propaganda blitzes ever seen.  This dark, false narrative has supported the terrorists on the ground and the diplomatic terrorism that’s been employed against Syria by every major western country and their allies as well as the UN.

That is all in addition to running a country in wartime and in the most conflicted region in the world.

Yet I have watched him rise to each challenge. He and the First Lady are exemplary in my opinion and personal heroes of mine now. Have mistakes been made? I would be shocked if there weren’t; he is human after all and these are extraordinary times.  However, the foundation he was and is trying to build of quality secular education, health care, sciences and technology, opening and growing of the economy and tourism, respect and protection for women , all religious and people groups, is positive and productive. I particularly appreciate the Assads’ devotion and commitment to the younger generation. They know that that is where real change begins to defeat extremism.  I am heartbroken when I consider what the past several years would be have looked like had the west and allies not intervened to try to crush the prosperity and stability that was growing."

Protectors Of Syria’s Pluralism

Bashar and Asma al-Assad Visit Saidnaya Monastery For Christmas, Reaffirming Their Status As Protectors Of Syria’s Pluralism

by Jonathan Azaziah

December 26, 2016

Gotta love Bashar and Asma al-Assad. The Syrian Arab Republic’s President and First Lady, as well as their daughter Zein and two sons Karim and Hafez, spent Christmas Day at Our Lady of Saidnaya Monastery in the ancient Aramaic-speaking town of Saidnaya, which rests on the slopes of the rugged Qalamoun Mountains that were liberated from Takfiri terrorist occupation by Hizbullah and the Syrian Arab Army last Spring. The Assads visited with the nuns and orphans of the Monastery and spent the day eating, laughing, snapping photos, unwrapping gifts and just generally enjoying the holy occasion.

 “God bless you!” is what Bashar and Asma were hit with when they first entered the Monastery, and as they made their way down into the courtyard where they were adorably mobbed by loving children, they were also told by the nuns, “Now we are truly feeling the holiday spirit!” ‘Twas one of those moments in which you realize that these individuals, Dr. Assad and First Lady Asma, truly are FOR the people, OF the people and BY the people. This is the kind of popular support that cannot be bought, nor staged, nor forced. One simply has it or one does not. Clearly the Assads ABSOLUTELY have it.

And this is the essence, isn’t it? Every drop of Zioganda that the mainstream media has spewed out like an obese ‘Israeli’ settler with a torn stomach tract over nearly 6 years is rendered useless with scenes such as these. If Syria’s First Family was as despised by “everyday Syrians” as the Zionist press says they are, why the warm welcome and embrace from nuns and orphans, i.e. some of the most vulnerable persons in all of Syria, especially during this “conflict”? If the Assads were so petrified of their well-being because of this aforesaid hatred from “the people”, why’d they travel to an area as volatile as Saidnaya, which had been attacked by Takfiri gangs at numerous points, with nothing but basic security?

And if Bashar, Asma and their children were “divorced from reality” as a cornucopia of officials from Western ZOGs, “activists” of the NGO-Human-Rights-Industrial-Complex and terrorist-sympathizers the world over have suggested since the opening days of the manufactured rebellion in March 2011, wouldn’t they be holed up in some mountaintop mansion bunker somewhere instead of traveling around Syria to be with their countrymen in these most desperate times? Yes. Certainly. Dr. Assad and the First Lady are in fact very much in tune with Syrians, hence why they were voted back to the People’s Palace in overwhelming numbers by Syrians, why the SAA is supported just about entirely by Syrians and why Syrians view the Assads’ leadership as a trusted source of guidance.

For posterity’s sake, let us be fully lucid: The Saidnaya visit was not some kind of publicity stunt or media operation but the latest stop in the routine nationwide rounds made by the Assads. The Syrian President has recently been in Kafar Souseh to celebrate Mawlid al-Nabawi and was also on the front lines of Aleppo to mark the liberation of the city. Asma, for her part, has been seemingly even busier, visiting wounded soldiers, the disabled, orphans, shellshocked students and the families of martyrs in and around Damascus, Latakia, Hama and Tartous.

Can the same be said about the Takfiri terrorist darlings of Washington, the EU, the GCC and ‘Israel’? No. Because celebrating Mawlid al-Nabawi and/or Christmas in the ever-shrinking “rebel”-held areas is grounds for lashes and beheadings. Zio-NATO’s proxies continue tormenting Syrians from all ethno-sectarian backgrounds and from every age bracket. And the only “martyrs” that these Wahhabi mercenaries have any interest in receiving are the ones who bring disgrace and dishonor to the very concept of martyrdom, i.e. those who are brainwashed as well as manipulated, among them children, into unleashing suicide operations on Syrian civilians.

Indeed, Christmas Day highlights the genuineness of the Assads along with the stark contrast between their commitment to upholding and safeguarding Syria’s pluralism vs. the hateful, destructive barbarity of the Takiri scourge. Imagine for a moment what life would be like for the people of Saidnaya, or Maaloula, or Halab, or Armenian Kessab in Latakia, or Wadi al-Nasara (Valley of Christians) in Homs if the Assads were no more and all that remained was the Christmas-hating Wahhabi fanatics bankrolled, armed, trained and politically supported by the US-‘Israeli’ Empire.

Let that sink in and try not to scream from the horror. So if it comes down to the democratically elected Resistance Axis leader and his brilliant, compassionate, composed-but-fierce and elegant missus, or the head-chopping maniacs that Zio-Imperialist powers keep referring to as “revolutionaries”, check the scenario: I’ll take the “dictator and his wife” over the “democratic freedom fighters” each and every day of the week plus twice on a beautiful Christmas Sunday in Damascus.

And you know what? Syrians–from liberated Aleppo to protected Saidnaya–would, and do, agree. Emphatically. #LongLiveSyria #LongLiveTheAssads #MerryMouqawamistChristmas

They Said About The President

Assad's Courage and Integrity

It's interesting how westerners who spend time in Syria end up supporting President Bashar al-Assad. Why is that? Why does he have the support of 80% or more of his people when "leaders" in the west struggle to get into double digits? (Hollande in France - 4% support!) Well, I'll tell you why I support him:

1. His courage and integrity. "Anyone can be president. I'm Syrian. I was born in Syria and I'll die in Syria" he said. And he meant it. He could have run from Syria with a blank check by the Saudis; his wife and children safe. But they stayed. Like the captain of a ship he determined to stay at the helm. He is known throughout Syria to be incorruptible. He and his wife are steadfast in their devotion to the people.

2. He is a unifying figure. His support comes from every religious and people group in Syria. The majority of Sunnis (Sunnis make up about 70%+ of the population), the Alawites, the Christians, and other minorities support him. They despise the "rebels" and their fanatical religious fundamentalism.

3. His total commitment to secular government. Syria is predominantly Muslim but everyone is free to practice their own religion without any persecution. He has a fierce dedication to education - free, quality, secular education and positive initiatives for young people. Sports, the arts and sciences. Care and protection of all historic and archaeological sites. Quality healthcare.

4. Women's rights. Women are engaged in every aspect of Syrian society. They can wear miniskirts or burkas - it's up to them and their families. They are leaders in government, scientists, business owners, professors - you name it.

5. Non-aggressive. Bashar al-Assad has never invaded another country. He had always wanted positive relations with the west - but he was unwilling to be our puppet. He is not a puppet or proxy for Russia or Iran btw but is committed to maintaining Syria's sovereignty and independence.

6. His patience and wisdom. Even while being continuously and maliciously slandered by the west and our allies, his calm and pragmatic nature and message have not wavered. He has told the truth of this conflict from the beginning. Both he and his wife Asma have modeled the highest standard of conduct in the face of terrible danger - and unending false horrific accusations by western and gulf media.

7. His reforms. Syria has plenty of problems to deal with especially being at the heart of the Middle East - a region subject to intense pressures from regional and global factors and factions. Yet Assad has been patiently working on improving the lives of all Syrians while building a strong foundation for a functioning and maintainable democracy. I'm sorry if it offends people in the west that he is a "dictator". But as long as our governments keep bowing down to the utterly depraved despots, the absolute monarchy, the ISIS and al Qaeda godfathers - of Saudi Arabia - who behead more people than ISIS, who allow no religious freedom whatsoever, and who consider women as property - I will keep laughing at this "offense". Truth is when you're in a region as volatile as the Middle East with the Saudis bankrolling violent fundamentalism and terrorism wherever they go, and every global power wanting to control your gas and oil, you've got to have a strong man in charge.

8. His warmth. He's just a likable guy. When I first showed my husband an interview with him in 2012, Syd said, "I want to have that guy over for dinner!" He drives himself around Damascus often. Wherever he or his wife are, the people swarm around him, get so close. Would never happen in the US.

9. His accomplishments are many. President Assad was voted Most Popular Arab Leader in regional polls in 2008 and 2009. Syria was one of the 5 safest countries in the world to live in before 2011. It was becoming one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. The economy was opening up and improving. Syria has gone from one recognized political party to over 20. They have a popularly ratified constitution and have held elections for parliament and president even while at war.

But the bottom line is this...whether anyone likes Assad or doesn't...what is reality it what he said himself: ONLY the Syrian people can and should decide their leader and government. Not the US, UK, France, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Turkey. Not the Muslim Brotherhood. ONLY Syrians.

I said before, I make no apologies for President Assad. In EVERY other country in the world, the forces he is fighting are called terrorists. Terrorists is what they are and have always been. It is impossible to fight terrorists without killing people, without bombs. There would be no terrorists in Syria to fight if the United States had not been using them to perform our illegal regime change coup against this popular and positive president.

In honor of President Bashar al-Assad's birthday tomorrow...a video tribute to beloved Syria. God bless her with victory, peace, safety and prosperity once again - soon!

The lyrics to this song...just seemed perfect:

"Rise"

I won't just survive
Oh, you will see me thrive
Can't write my story
I'm beyond the archetype

I won't just conform
No matter how you shake my core
'Cause my roots—they run deep, oh

Oh, ye of so little faith
Don't doubt it, don't doubt it
Victory is in my veins
I know it, I know it
And I will not negotiate
I'll fight it, I'll fight it
I will transform

When, when the fire's at my feet again
And the vultures all start circling
They're whispering, "You're out of time,"
But still I rise

This is no mistake, no accident
When you think the final nail is in
Think again
Don't be surprised
I will still rise

I must stay conscious
Through the madness and chaos
So I call on my angels
They say

Oh, ye of so little faith
Don't doubt it, don't doubt it
Victory is in your veins
You know it, you know it
And you will not negotiate
Just fight it, just fight it
And be transformed

'Cause when, when the fire's at my feet again
And the vultures all start circling
They're whispering, "You're out of time,"
But still I rise

This is no mistake, no accident
When you think the final nail is in
Think again
Don't be surprised
I will still rise

Don't doubt it, don't doubt it
Oh, oh, oh, oh
You know it, you know it
Still rise
Just fight it, just fight it
Don't be surprised
I will still rise

President Assad, 

 

I am a US citizen, and I am so deeply ashamed of my country and their involvement in your country.  There are many like me who are so angry at the actions of our government.  I wish I was able to adopt all your young children and bring them to this country to get them the medical treatments they need, to feed and clothe them, to give them comfortable sleep without fear.  I just want to cry when I think of how sad all this devastation is on your people, young and old.  We have been lied to by our government, but we are slowly opening up our eyes to the truth.  I will pray for your country, your people, and you to keep strength in your convictions.  I applaud your people for not allowing another country to further divide your people by religious convictions.  

The US has already done as much division of it's own people, not only in religion, but nationality, financial capability, political party, race, sex, and I find it unacceptable and unforgivable.  I realize the reason they do this as well.  They do it to divide people to be confused and misdirected to take away our own personal power in our own politics.  Many of us are fighting this problem and wanting unity among our people, as people that all bleed red.  That's the only division any human being should have as a marker of mankind, the fact that we all bleed red.  There is no reason for people to be divided, not if they are intelligent, educated peoples.  There has to be rational communication to settle differences, peaceful protests, not violence.  Unfortunately, the US seems to feel it has the right to interfere with regime change.  I do not.  Many of us do not.  We are scared for our own people since we do not trust our own government any longer.  Again, I pray for your country to survive this assault on all of you.  May the god of your faith give you strength, courage, and the ability to withstand what you all face.   I'm so sorry for what my country is doing to you.

Happy Birthday to His Excellency, Legal President of the Syrian Arab Republic, Doctor Bashar Hafez al-Assad! (11/9/1965)
Thank you Dear President for the offerings you made for the Syrian People. Only a Lion could have stand for more than 5 years, when the whole West Plotted to overtrow you. Overthrow, 'cause you refused to disarm #Hezbollah & the Palestinian Military Camp. Overthrow, 'Cause you refused to become a puppet for the West.

The Syrian People will never abandon you!
Long live Syria al-Assad! Allah, Syria, Bashar W Basssss!

Leader of All Honest Arabs

 

"President Bashar Al-Assad is the leader of Arab Nationalism and of all honest Arabs, who are defending the Arab people's independence and sovereignty. President Al-Assad will triumph in the war waged  against Syria by the hawks of the U.S. Democratic Party, Britain, France, Israel and the Unites States' agents in Ankara, Doha and Riyadh. Syria under President Al-Assad  is indeed the last defense line for civilization and Europe is indebted to the Syrians who have been defending civilizations against terrorists."

Magdalena Tasheva,  Bulgarian Member of Parliament, August 2016.
