Syria’s President: Bashar al-Assad

IMG_6357

“You call it Freedom, I call it TERRORISM. You call it Jihad, I call it MURDER. You call him a Dictator, I call him our LEADER. You call it an Islamic State; I call it a SECULAR state. Syria will always have its flag held up high! ONE flag. ONE President. We are with you Bashar al-Assad!”304694_301377276635950_1253765912_n

Western Media along with the gulf nations have framed Bashar al-Assad for being a tyrant dictator. Many of whom do not even reside in Syria are the ones making such repulsive remarks. There is no proof that Bashar al-Assad is committing such atrocities against his people, only biased accusations are made not only by people, but by foreign Presidents as well. The sole purpose of the Syrian Arab Army is to protect Syria from falling into the hands of the terrorists, whereas the “rebels” are not even Syrian and have pledged full allegiance to Al-Qaeda. Wake up, the news is deceiving you and the truth about Syria is kept hidden.
Many Arabs and Muslims that are against President Bashar al-Assad mainly dislike him because he is Allawite . Saudi Arabian Sheikhs consider people of the Allawite sect of Islam to be “dogs” and often time preach heinous chants that provoke hatred and encourage the genocide of Allawite Muslims and Shiite Muslims. These are the type of Muslims that hold extremist views and believe Jihad is appropriate because God essentially wants them go to sacrifice themselves for their creator. Not only do they read the Qur’an backwards but they practice the Islamic religion incorrectly as well.

2011, Syria

Before United States “democracy”, Syria was a peaceful country. There were no traces of oppression, even the poor were happy because they were thankful for what they had. Money does not bring happiness, and the people of Syria knew that. They made the best out of what they had and indeed love their President. It is true that some Syrians do not like President Bashar al-Assad but it seems like most of the hatred comes from non-Syrians that wish to see Muslim Brotherhood in Syria.
The Western Media only shows you a few protestors on the news and mainly images of ruined buildings or deceased civilians, but have you ever seen massive protests in Syria like the ones in Egypt or Libya? The news has never showed us Syrians protesting in their country like the massive ones we have seen in other Arab countries. The reason why the Western Media doesn’t show it is because such massive rallies against the President do not exist. Massive rallies for Bashar al-Assad do occur in Syria and in cities such as Damascus, Tartous, Aleppo, Homs, Da’raa, Lattakia etc. That is why the news never shows you any of it because they do not want you to see that the people of Syria actually want President Bashar al-Assad as President.

President Bashar al-Assad kept Syria a giant home for people of all religions. He protected individual sovereignties and cared for his people. Syria is a Secular state meaning Jews, Christians, Muslims and Atheists were allowed to practice their religion freely without getting ridiculed. Religious tensions between opposing religions were not very prevalent because Syrian’s are not divided by religion but are united by being Syrian.

Bashar al Assad made Healthcare is free, school education (aside from University) is free, they do not pay taxes, nor do they pay for home mortgages or car payments. All Syrians really had to pay for was rent if they rented a house, food and clothing. Their lives weren’t as miserable as the West portrayed it to be. In fact, even under recession people made the best out of it and generally never complained unlike civilians from other countries (mainly first world). Bashar al-Assad gave his people freedom, he looked after them and made sure Syria was a giant family. Unlike most Arab countries, Women in Syria are treated very well and are given a lot of freedom. Generally they aren’t treated any differently than the men. In 2012 when Bashar al-Assad revised Syria’s Constitution, he gave women a tremendous amount of rights and allowed women to participate in politics more. Women in the Middle East do not have a voice, but in Syria they do.
What the world really does not see is that President Bashar al-Assad is one of the brightest, strongest, and bravest Presidents. For nearly two and a half years he has been playing tug of war with the West and Gulf nations. If his people truly hated him he would have been out the door in less than a year but he is still standing proud and tall. He was made in Syria and will die in Syria; he does not need to be a Western puppet to keep his people happy. What his people want is to continue to see the sun rise again each and every day and to see Bashar al-Assad as their protector and President. Syrians do not fear Bashar al-Assad; they fear the evil that has entered their country.

2011, Syria

People will break you, shake you, rate you and test you, but what makes you who you are is how well you stand and cope with the pressure. A true leader does not need to have the support from countless countries; a true leader needs to have the support from his people and we are with you Bashar al-Assad because a true leader stands alone when the sheep’s come in a pack. You can choose to ignore our voice but we are the voice of Syria and united we will stand with our President.

Armenians in Syria

In 1915, countless Armenians were driven out of their homes and were forced to walk until their death under the blistering sun and the warm desert of Dier Ez-Zor Syria. 

When the Ottoman Empire found out that many Armenians were peacefully living in Syria, the Ottoman Empire ordered Syria to send all the Armenians back, but Syria refused and protected the Armenian people from the tragic events held by the Ottoman Empire.

Decades later Armenians found themselves as being one of the largest ethnic minority groups living in Syria. Aleppo being home to the largest Armenian population.

Bashar al-Assad has treated Armenians very well and has granted them many rights and privileges. Even though they were driven out of their homes in 1915, they created a new home in Syria.

When the fake Revolution occurred, hundreds of Armenian boys volunteered to enroll in the Syrian Arab Army and countless were martyred. Armenians have and always will support Bashar al-Assad. Armenians all over the world support Bashar and love him as well.

Lebanon and Syria are the only two Arab countries that protect Armenians under their governments and allow Armenians to live their lives freely, have their own churches and schools and practice their language as well.

 Rest in Peace to every Soldier that died fighting for Syria! Armenian, Syrian, or Assyrian, at the end we all make Syria the beautiful country it is today! ❤✌

This is Syria

ImageFrom Homs to Daa’ra, Aleppo to Damascus… The city is torn, burnt and left to ashes..

Where is humanity? Is this their justice?

This sectarian violence has left Syria in ashes…

In the name of freedom they have destroyed countless homes

Children are being killed but their voices are left unheard

They live in fear that one day they will not see the sun rise again..

Not allowed to enjoy life because terror is the devils friend

Bodies mutilated and others killed

Yet the true killers are hidden behind their western friends

In the name of freedom they have glorified their acts

Deceiving the world and suppressing facts

Destroying mosques and burning down Churches…

From Persecuting Christians to hanging muslims..

Is this their freedom? Is this what Syria deserves?

The devil may be strong but God is stronger

The cries of the weak will be heard at the end… Because God is with Syria we don’t need the devils friendship

Shiites and Allawite Muslims in Syria

Sunni Muslims in Syria make up over 60% percent of the Syrian population. Since Syria does not follow sharia law, it is not an Islamic state, which angered those who want Syria to be all Islamic. However, once this fake revolution was created, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and later Turkey attempted to destabilize Syria. In all essence, the revolution was created for political purposes such as imperialism and a complete control over Syria. Another reason was for resources, but lately the issue of religion has sparked much interest into the Royal Gulf families.

Shiite or Shia, is the second largest sect of Islam and is mainly prominent in Bahrain, Iran, Iraq, Lebanon and Syria. Shiite Muslims in Sunni dominated countries are treated poorly, to the extent where they are deprived from their every day essentials. Life is a precious commodity, but in the Middle East, someone’s life can be taken away within a blink of an eye.

In reality, all we have heard on the news is generally fabricated material that has been put out to blind the citizens from doing further research to actually seek the truth. There is no revolution in Syria. In fact, if there were a revolution in Syria, it would look much like the Revolutions of Libya, Egypt, Turkey etc. The news shows us one rebel or a hand full of rebels protesting against Bashar, chances are they are not even Syrian. Furthermore, unlike thousands of protesters that went against their governments in other countries, Syrians actually demonstrate for their President and have massive rallies all over Syria. However, what the news does not tell you how the “rebels” who want “freedom” obtain freedom by slaughtering religious minorities in brutal ways. Much like the Christians that have received a tremendous amount of discrimination and hardship, Shiite Muslims, and Allawites (a sect that emerged from Shiite Islam) have received just as much discrimination.

Here’s a typical scenario an average Shia and or Allawite would face in Syria.

1)      Rape and abduction of girls and women starting as young as the age of 13.

2)      Abduction and severe beatings.

3)      Killings of an entire family; generally they would either break into the house and shoot the entire family, but there has been incidents were family members have been hung or decapitated.

4)      Torture and decapitation, and in the process they kill under the name of “Allah”

5)      Schools and mosques have been burnt down, people burnt alive.

6)      Shiite mosques being exploded while the proud terrorists pose in the background.

7)      Terrorists entering villages and causing massive massacres onto the Shiite and Allawite community.

Before the fake revolution occurred, Syrians of any religious background lived their lives and respected their neighbors. The Shiites v. Sunni rivalry has gone on for decades, and generally the Shiites are the ones that are facing the discrimination, regardless of which Arab country they are in. But, since Saudi Arabia is behind the fake revolution and funds jihadists to kill as many Christians and Shiites as possible, Shiite Muslims have been the ultimate target along the rest of the religious minorities in Syria.

A Saudi Arabian Sheikh has granted Fatwas that permit the rape of any Non-Sunni Muslim while they explicitly stated that they preferred to have the terrorists rape Allawite women, since President Bashar Al-Assad belongs to the Allawite Sect. Furthermore, Saudi Arabia has permitted terrorists to have temporary marriage licenses with the girls and women they abduct, essentially making them sex slaves and often times when their job is done and they are no longer needed, chances of them returning back to their families are extremely low.

The Gulf nations consider Allawite Muslims to be a disgrace to Islam and humanity and according to them; they should be terminated for good. As for Shiite Muslims, many Sunni Extremists along with Salafi and Wahhabis do not consider Shiite Muslims to be Muslim and often ridicule on their religious sect.

Syria, however, is better than this. You will rarely see Shiite Muslims and Sunni Muslims praying together. You will not see a Sunni Sheikh visit a Shiite village and pray with them, let along seeing a Sunni Sheikh enter a Church and pray and speak out to the Christians! This is what they want to destroy and remove in Syria. The only proper peace that was attained in the Middle East has been destroyed.

For all those non-Syrian Muslims who hate Bashar Al-Assad because he is “killing” Muslims. Their freedom fighters who have pledged their complete allegiance with Al-Qaeda have been doing all the killing! And for those non Syrian Muslims, here’s a reality check, the majority of those Muslims have been dying in Syria, are mostly Shiite and Allawite. Not saying every Sunni is safe, those who side with President Assad are under danger, but generally the Shiite and Allawite sect, along with the Christians are the ones facing the most problems.  Syria will and always will remain to be Secular.  Stop the Sectarian violence and discrimination! Syria is home to every religion. Christian, Shiite, Sunni, Druze, Jewish, at the end they are all Syrian and will remain to be. The only person who can bring religious peace is Bashar Al-Assad. For those who believe President Assad is ‘evil’? Which of the lesser two are evil: the one that pledges all allegiance to Al Qaeda and is funded by the West and Gulf, or the man who won’t go a day as a Western puppet and is called a tyrant by the devil himself, John Mccain? Bashar Al- Assad will remain to be Syria’s hero and savior whether President Obama and John McCain like it or not.

The Syrian Conflict from both sides.

Image

March 15, 2011 will be an unforgettable day not only for all the Syrians around the world, but for the entire Middle East.  To some, that day held a revolutionary uprising that sparked hope for a better future. To others that melancholy day brought fear of losing a secular Syria to the hands of radical extremists.  The Arab spring had hit other countries hard like an epidemic, moving from one country to the next. Many tyrant leaders had been toppled long before the Syrian Revolution began, and the next leader on that list was none other than President Bashar Al-Assad of Syria. It is evident that as a super power, one of America’s moral obligations is to assist countries in need, whether it is economically, financially or with other means of humanitarian aid. However, there are hundreds of humanitarian crisis’ happening around the world each day, why would the crisis in Syria be of any interest to America? Syria happens to be located in the heart of the Middle East and plays a vital role in Middle-Eastern politics,even as a third world country. Aside from that, America takes interest in Syria because America knows if the Syrian government crumbles and falls, violence will spread to neighboring countries of Iraq and Lebanon, there is also a huge possibility that Al-Qaeda is involved in the Syrian revolution and if Syria falls it can potentially hurt America. Even though there are a lot of risk factors regarding America’s intervention in Syria, President Obama had been getting a lot of criticism for the delay, which is why after a course of two bloody years of war, President Obama acknowledged the ‘Syrian Rebels’ and sent aid, along with having the CIA train the rebels.

The Syrian conflict began in a city called Homs in April 2012, and it gained the title of being the capital city for the Revolution, as it was the first city to join the uprising against the Assad regime. According to those who are against the regime, President Bashar Al-Assad is a tyrant leader who is only representing the Alawite-Shiite community since he is an Alawite-Shiite himself. Therefore the majority Sunni-Muslims and the Christian minorities have been under- represented for the past seven years. Aside from that, he is depriving his citizens from their rights and freedoms. He is killing his own people, primarily those who oppose his regime. Not only is he committing such atrocious acts, but he denies the fact that innocent civilians are being killed. It is undeniable that innocent civilians are being killed, but many Pro-opposition supporters have been alarmed over President Obama’s silent behavior in regards to the Syrian Revolution.

First and foremost, Syria is not like Libya; President Bashar Al-Assad did not openly state that he was going to kill his own people on public television the same way Gaddafi did. Also if America gave any form of military aid early on in the revolution, it would not have been clear whether the weaponry would have gone to the rebels or fall into the hands of Al-Qaeda. President Obama was hesitant with his decision because he knew the situation in Syria has many potential risk factors.  If Syria is weak and destabilized, violence can easily spread to border countries of Lebanon and Iraq. America recently ended a war in Iraq and would not want the Iraqi civilians to undergo turmoil in their country once more. As for Lebanon, if violence does spill over to the Lebanese border, there is a fear that another civil war will erupt or Hezbollah will take affirmative action in response to the violence. If such conflicts were to be sparked, it would hold another serious political and diplomatic problem in which President Obama would inevitable have to address.

Furthermore, Syria has support from Russia, Hezbollah, Iran and to a lesser degree, China.  President Obama is not oblivious and is aware that what President Assad is doing is completely unacceptable, but intervening in Syria would end up sparking a war between the super powers which would end up costly. Former President Gorge Bush had warned the Americans about the “Axis of Evil” being Iran, North Korea and Iraq. Iran has been Syria’s backbone from the beginning of the revolution, and as the revolution continued, so did Iran’s support.

However, when the issue of chemical weapons arose, President Obama’s attention was captured and he made it clear that if President Assad were to use chemical weapons against his people his consequences would be severe. After two years, President Obama also acknowledged the opposition group in Syria which angered those who support Bashar. Although the main controversy behind the President acknowledging the rebels, is the military aid and training that he is providing for them. The CIA has currently been training the rebel opposition group in Jordan for several months now. What most of the world does not know is that the CIA has been training the rebels since last year in an undefined location of Jordan. The rebels that are being trained are primarily Sunni Extremists.

The CIA has been delivering weapons to the freedom fighters and is aware that Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Turkey and other countries are sending aid as well. However, most of the armed shipment has been sent from Saudi Arabia and Qatar, but the weaponry sent from those two countries are going to die heart jihadist, even though President Obama is aware of that, he is still allowing the CIA to train the rebels in Jordan and is not putting a stop to the shipment being arrived from Saudi Arabia and Qatar. In accordance with America’s national values, America is responsible as a supreme global leader to defend democratic principles. The Syrian citizens are in urgent need of democracy according to those who support the opposition, and America as a super power, has a right to bring democracy to Syria.

On the contrary, Obama’s acknowledgements of the Free Syrian Army along with having the CIA train them as outraged countless Pro-Bashar Supporters. According to those who support Bashar, they believe the Americans should see the Syrian crisis not from Western media, not from the rebels, but from Syrians themselves. Many Pro-Bashar supporters consider this revolution to be a fake revolution for a number of reasons. This revolution is actually a proxy war formulated by the west along with Qatar and Saudi Arabia to destabilize the Syrian government for their own selfish means. The opposition group is not mainly composed of Syrians; it is consisted of foreigners from Libya, Jordan, Chechnya, Turkey and other Islamic nations. King Abdullah from Saudi Arabia proclaimed that those who do jihad in Syria will be guaranteed to have breakfast with Allah and will have their 72 virgins waiting for them in heaven. King Abdullah also granted Fatwas allowing Jihadist to have sex with women who are not Sunni, making Shias, Alawites, Christians and Druze to be an open target. King Abdullah mainly wants Bashar out of power so an extremist can control Syria and impose Sharia law onto the country. He also has brainwashed the uneducated poor to do Jihad in Syria and to kill as many pro-Bashar supporters as possible, which is why all the main attacks in Damascus and Aleppo are in pro-Bashar areas.

Qatar also created this fake revolution to weaken Syria and potentially damage Iran as a way of revenge for ruining Qatar’s pipeline designs. In 2011, the same year the Syrian uprising began, Iraq and Syria signed a ten billion dollar deal to allow Iran to build a pipeline through its own territory and later connecting it to Syria. Iran also plans to create nuclear energy so they can later sell their oil to countries that need it. However, the pipeline situation directly affected Qatar because King Hamad had similar pipeline designs to be created in Syria that would connect to Turkey. The pipeline is another proxy in the Syrian conflict. Israel has silently been involved with bringing Assad down. Bashar Al-Assad has been known for being close allies with Hezbollah, has sent aid to Hamas, and has stood by Palestine in every conflict. In order to weaken Hezbollah, Bashar al-Assad must go down. The Syrian government had collected countless weapons that were made in Israel and had Hebrew writing on them that were all used by the opposition forces. Israel has opened its doors to the Free Syrian Army by openly allowing the ‘rebels’ to be treated in Israeli hospitals. Furthermore, America wants Bashar go to down so they can replace him with an American puppet as they have done with other Arab countries.

Having said that many Pro-Syrians are outraged by America’s decision because in their eyes what Obama is basically doing is training the terrorists and giving them weaponry. The CIA has recently been training the ‘rebels’ or ‘terrorists’ in Jordan and from Jordan they enter Syria just like many jihadist who fight in Syria. Saudi Arabia may have caused a religious war to bring disharmony between the Sunnis and the Shias, but many Sunnis and other Syrians are loyal to their President. Western media along with Saudi Arabian controlled media in the Middle East have been exposing propaganda to the world and spreading lies so the world can listen to what they want to say, not the truth. Former CNN reporter Amber Lyon stated that the American government made lies about Syria and Iran for their own interest; “CNN channel manipulates, fabricates news and follows restrictiveness when broadcasting news, stressing that the Channel receives money from the U.S. government and other countries’ governments in exchange for news content.” It is about time that the Western countries and Arab countries put aside their own interest and start paying attention to what is best for the Syrian people. America’s assistance to the rebels is not going to make matters better for Syria, it will make it worse and the bloodshed will continue as long as the West is funding and supporting the terrorists.

As an American who has family in Syria I am completely against America’s aid and assistance in training the rebels. America recently sent out ten million dollars to the rebels and supplied them with weaponry. I also believe that President Bashar Al-Assad is not a tyrant leader, outside countries have formulated this revolution for their own benefit and as Syria crumbles, they will all try to take control of it. Bashar has 2/3 majority vote in Syria, Syrians who live in Syria love the president. He is protecting his people, if he were not; Syria would not have been the 4th safest country in 2009 or the 10th visited country by tourists in 2010. The ‘freedom fighters’ are not fighting for democracy or freedom as America hopes, they are fighting to destroy a secular Syria. Saudi Arabia does not want any Christians in Syria. Over 1000 Christians have been killed; over 200,000 have fled the country leaving 10% of Syria’s population to be Christians. My uncle has been a victimized due to his religion, terrorists had kidnapped and beat him while screaming ‘allahu akbar’, fortunately they let him go instead of killing him. Therefore the crisis in Syria has affected me tremendously and Obama’s take on the Syrian crisis upsets me beyond belief. He claims he doesn’t negotiate terrorists but at the same time he is the one who is funding the rebels in Syria. Obama was afraid of sending aid to the rebels because he thought it would fall into the hands of Al Qaeda but Al Qaeda and Al Nusra Font have been fighting alongside the rebels the entire time.

No one can predict the end to the bloodshed in Syria. As a global power it was America’s duty to try to bring an end to the oppression and bring forth democracy.  Many were grateful that America finally stepped in and helped out in some way, others were not. However one thing that is clear is that America cannot afford another war, especially a war that involves super powers. America indirectly intervened in Syria knowing it can bring forth its definition of freedom in Syria, but is it really freedom? One may call it freedom, but it is terrorism. One may call it jihad, but it is murder. One may call an Islamic state, but it is a secular state. One may call him a dictator, but he is SYRIA’S President.
