“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!”
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.
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.
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.
