 The Syria Times takes pleasure in publishing some of the just, accurate and exact statements made about H.E. President Bashar Al-Assad since the untimely demise of Syria's great builder, the late Hafez Al-Assad, the father of modern Syria. Still the memories and bitter tears of June 10th 2000 alive inside the lucky among the Syrians who have had the opportunity to be eye witnesses to the late Al-Assad's epic of steadfastness, correction, liberation and resistance.

The Syrians who in millions took to the streets on that day are but to take the streets and in more numbers celebrating the victory of all Syria and Arab masses and the free world against al-Qaeda Wahabi and Takfiri terrorism. The millions along with their post-2000 born family members are now to chant ''Allah, Syria, Bashar''. Bashar has proved himself to be not only the man of humanity, hope, amity, fraternity, salvation and safety, but as the invincible President of all presidents and leaders. His Excellency President Al-Assad ''came out of the people and lived with them'' and has remained one of them. The Syrians have seen him ''everywhere whether in the work place or on the streets or in your picnics in order to learn from you and sharpen his determination by his contact with you and shall work for you as he has always done. The man who has become a president is the same man who was a doctor and an officer and first and foremost is the citizen.'' ''Our dear people, My trust in you is infinite and so is my love to you.'' And so, your Excellency, you are the savior, guardian and the majority does adore, trust and believe in you. The following is but some of the statements issued during 200-2003:



full support of the Syrians

 "In President Bashar Al-Assad, I have seen all success, an identical image of his late father in features, morals, sense of responsibility. President Bashar definitely enjoys the full support of the Syrians and would achieve the sublime status realized by his late father.’’

like father like son

"Lieutenant General Bashar Hafez Al-Assad is the best successor for the best predecessor. He is the man of the time like father like son.'' "Dr. Bashar is fully aware and knowledgeable of all the specific details of the issue under discussion as he put precise questions in indication of his all-out grasp and knowledge of the issue.”  

Kofi Annan the UN Secretary General. 

 "I do believe that President Bashar Al-Assad held the UN resolutions, especially 242 and 338 as the basic reference for the peace process.” 

Kofi Annan the UN Secretary General.

need to work with the Syrian leadership

"It's important for Dr. Al-Assad to take on the mantle and for the transition process to be  pursued,” "I will repeat again to whomever I meet that the door is open, and we will be exploring.” “There is no question that we need to work with the Syrian leadership in order to accomplish a comprehensive peace.”

US ex-Secretary of State, Madeline Albright.

 Sayed Hassan Nasralalh, Hizbollah Leader, stressed the Lebanese resistance would be

“Permanent following the steadfastness and struggle inclination of the late President Hafez Al-Assad and to back his process.’’

“I am here to support the process and inclination of Dr. Bashar Al-Assad due to his being perpetuity to his father.’’ 


David Ignatius, the Washington Post


“The 37-year-old Syrian president expressed strong and sometimes scornful opposition to U.S. war plans. He likened American policy to a car hurtling toward a big concrete block and said the coming weeks will test which is stronger -- the car or the concrete block.”

  David Ignatius, the Washington Post


an articulate man

“This practical science analogy is typical of Assad, who was trained as a doctor and spent two years in Britain practicing his specialty of ophthalmology. He's an articulate man who speaks good English but preferred to conduct most of the interview in Arabic through an interpreter.”

David Ignatius, the Washington Post

 “Despite his youth and interest in modern technology, Assad is his father's son. He speaks in a similarly didactic style -- mixing references to science with comments about Syrian history and culture. This straddle of past and future can be seen in the twin portraits of father and son that appear along every Syrian highway and in every public place. The son's legitimacy clearly depends in part on the continuity of his father's policies.”

David Ignatius, the Washington Post 


The reputed British Journalist, Patrick Seale.

"The Syrian Leadership, on top Dr. Bashar Hafez Al-Assad, would seek via all means to modernize Syria and to boost the economy,”

Patrick Seale

"Dr. Bashar has a well-studied comprehensive timetable to upgrade Syria. Dr. Bashar Hafez Al-Assad wishes to open for the world. He is an excellent person characterized with many merits and attributes.”

Patrick Seale

 "President Bashar Al-Assad, the young leader of Syria, believes, as his late father did believe, that Arabs are masters in their countries and should never leave their destiny conditioned to the will of others. Furthermore, President Bashar courageously and categorically rejects whatever dictations regarding the policy and stances of Syria,”

Patrick Seale

"President Al-Assad is determined to improve and develop Syria' relations with the west hoping that the west would understand the reality of facts in the Middle East region as to support Arab causes and the big role which Syria plays in the peace process,”

Patrick Seale

 “In addition to his notable and remarkable moves regionally and internationally, President Al-Assad has started large scale development initiatives in Syria covering all walks of life, where all political observers underlined that these initiatives would reactivate the political and economic life in Syria,” 

Patrick Seale

 "Dr. Bashar Al-Assad is the pioneer of Internet and Media Means modernization. He works as to attract investors in support of the Syrian Economy in an atmosphere of transparency.” 

Patrick Seale

 "The performance of President Bashar Al-Assad as a Statesman exceeded all expectations; he represents a high minaret in the region; he who follows president Bashar in conferences: Arab and international circles, feels how much this leader is very powerful.’’
