The Moral Forces Behind Syrian Prez Bashar al-Assad

In the buildup prior to the premeditated terminations of Saddam and Gadhafi regimes Western media took turns at demonizing these leaders, who have done much to their people than any leaders in the West, by showing images of violence supposedly committed by these dictators against some sectors in their own societies which were proven to be CIA/Mossad inflicted.

They could not do the same with President Assad of Syria, because internally he has no enemies. The Assad family’s leadership is seen as just and tolerant as can be made possible in the Middle East.
All they could say until now is “Assad must go,” but why? They could not provide an intelligent answer.
The so called rebels were imported from the ranks of the Muslim Brotherhood and rag tag mercenaries who are willing to do the CIA’s bidding for a fee, which in this case is derived mostly from controlled oil fields.
It’s always been this way, i.e. the strategy of sowing terror and making it self-sustainable by the subsequent exploitation of the spoils of conquest, and this is the democratic world bereft of any accepted international norms that Western plutocrats have been creating in the Middle East and elsewhere, one country at a time.
Western leadership is known for direct extortion, too. Just before they decide putting mercenaries on the ground a dinner table is allowed to witness uncanny external interference.
Here are the real reasons why uncooperative men like Assad must go.
“A trained physician like Assad was thought to be the least of their (Anglo-American Axis, AAA) troubles during the choreographed Arab Spring events.  After all, doctors everywhere take the sacred vow known as the Hippocratic Oath — “First, do no harm.”
The Israeli-Franco-Anglo-American power-brokers, who have controlled the destiny of most of the Middle Eastern nations for decades, have entered a new and desperate phase of conquest.  Unfortunately for the entire Mideast, that desperation manifested as the fomenting of a number of revolutionary Arab Spring events.  The resulting widespread death and destruction reflects just how determined the AAA is to advance their misguided agenda.
Whereas each of these engineered protest movements was initiated by the agents of the AAA, not all of them were entirely successful.  While the CIA, MI6 and MOSSAD may have most of the Middle East hardwired by way of information technology, many of the indigenous peoples still remain off their grid, to varying degrees of course.  Nevertheless, they still expected Assad to simply resign after so many other countries had succumbed to the CIA-directed Facebook revolutions and civil wars via Twitter.
President Assad, they have come to find out, is a completely different kind of being.  Not only is he not of their ilk, his very presence on the Mideast geopolitical chessboard causes them great consternation.  Why?  Because President Assad has a conscience in contrast to the many other leaders who clearly govern without any conscience whatsoever.  Of course, the AAA leadership has demonstrated time and again that it operates without any discernible conscience.  So devoid of a moral compass are the American, French, and British invaders that Assad’s continued leadership makes them all look bad … VERY BAD.  Hence, their compulsion to demonize him at every turn.
Because of the strategic geopolitical importance of Syria, the AAA can no longer tolerate such an honest peace-broker or righteous leader in such a vital location and position of leadership.  Most are completely unaware, but President Assad is as just and principled as they come anywhere in the world today, particularly in the Mideast.  The only way that the al-Assad family was able to stay in power since 1970 (45 consecutive years) was because of the family trait for fairness and tolerance.
Four Major Reasons For Assad’s Upright Posture Towards Governance
There are various reasons for President Assad’s popular government and respected leadership style among the Syrian people.  Four of these have become particularly invaluable during this time of great trial and tribulation for the nation.  Without the following key relationships and forms of mutual support in the life of President Assad, it would have been unlikely that he could have lasted this long.  Therefore, none of these vital associations should be underestimated in any way.
Reason #1: The Spiritual Foundation of Bashar’s Alawite Faith
First and foremost there is Bashar al-Assad’s unwavering dedication to his family’s spiritual traditions and religious faith.  Being an ardent practitioner of the Alawite religion like his father and forefathers before him, Assad has drawn great strength from this mystical and tolerant branch of Shia Islam. He went into the medical profession and trained as an ophthalmologist because of his desire to serve the Syrian people.
Also known as Alawis, Alawites “are a prominent religious group, centered in Syria, who follow a branch of the Twelver school of Shia Islam but with syncretistic elements.“[1]  Because his religious community had suffered religious persecution and many other indignities over generations prior to his father’s presidency, he is quite sensitive to the need for religious tolerance.  Particularly within the context of Syria’s historical religious diversity, did the Alawites rise to provide the cohesive leadership necessary to maintain the peace and mutual acceptance.  This remarkable achievement occurred over decades when many neighboring nations suffered the fate of one failed government after another.
For those who are cognizant of the well-known Hindu religious tolerance in India, Alawites are quite similar.  They not only believe in reincarnation as in the East, they have also absorbed many other aspects of the predominant religions in Syria especially those found in Islam and Christianity.  Because of their syncretic approach in both philosophy and practice, Alawis have evolved into a genuinely tolerant spiritual community who actively cultivate a climate of mutual respect.  However, it is the mystical aspects of their spiritual practice which has earned them the respect of the Syrian people.  Because they are known to walk their talk, they have been trusted to lead as they have done for almost 5 decades.
Alawites consider themselves to be Muslims, although some Sunnis dispute that they are. Alawite doctrine incorporates Gnostic, neo-Platonic, Islamic, Christian and other elements and has, therefore, been described as syncretistic.
Alawite beliefs have never been confirmed by their modern religious authorities. Alawites tend to conceal their beliefs (taqiyya) due to historical persecution. Some tenets of the faith are secret, known only to a select few; therefore, they have been described as a mystical sect.[1]
The final point here is that the people of Syria were quite content to be governed by a disproportionately smaller number of Alawites throughout government.  In spite of an overwhelming Sunni majority the arrangement worked out well even while there was so much conflict in countries all around them.  However, Assad knew that the very delicate balance of power could be upset at any time.  And so it would be … by those powerful AAA nations who would deftly utilize their divide and rule MO whenever it suits their geopolitical purposes, especially their pursuit of oil reserves.
Reason # 2: The Strength and Support of His Wife Asma al-Assad
As is often the case, the Assad marriage reveals how a strong woman often exists behind every great leader.  In the person of his regal and supportive wife did Bashar Assad find the perfect “power behind his throne”.  From a strictly political standpoint, she was raised in a powerful Sunni family which endeared her to the Sunni majority of Syria.  Because of his choice of a Sunni wife, President Assad was seen as a leader who sincerely lived his authentic acceptance of every religious orientation found within the boundaries of Syria.
The Secret Strength Behind Bashar al-Assad

Asma al-Assad’s professional relationship with her husband was especially exemplary for the woman of Syria to see and experience.  She not only sought to help liberate her gender all over the nation, the First Lady also served as a glowing example throughout much of Islamic society. Her various unprecedented and courageous initiatives to spread enlightenment and empowerment in every sphere of Syrian life were recognized by many for their efficacy and magnanimity.
Asma al-Bashar has occupied a unique position in the highly patriarchal societies of the Middle East.  To be presented side-by-side with her husband in her capacity of First lady, as she often is, has provided the male-dominated Arabic and Islamic culture with a new model of leadership.  While President Assad is obviously in charge, he has given his wife a special role in the Administration’s various mandates to address a whole host of social, cultural and religious issues.
Post Arab Spring, Asma al-Assad has taken on much greater responsibility because of the epic disaster that has been left in the wake of the manufactured civil war by the Western powers.  The Franco-Anglo-American machinations, which produced this terrible tragedy, have posed formidable obstacles for President Assad and his wife.  The warmongering has been so relentless and intense that only by the “grace of Allah” has the Syrian First Family weathered one harrowing storm after another.
Reason #3: Bashar Assad Received Excellent Training and Guidance from His Father

Hafez Assad

The loyal and genuine support from the Syrian people, which the Assad family has enjoyed for nearly 5 decades, began with Hafez al-Assad.  This was a man who is considered to be one of Syria’s greatest sons having taken power in a bloodless coup during a particularly delicate and volatile period of Syrian history.  Had he not taken such a decisive stand at that critical point, Syria could have easily erupted into a full-blown civil war driven by religious strife.
Assad’s rule “began with an immediate and considerable advantage: the government he displaced was so detested that any alternative came as a relief”. He first tried to establish national unity, which he felt had been lost under the leadership of Aflaq and Jadid. Assad differed from his predecessor at the outset, visiting local villages and hearing citizen complaints.[2]
A humble and practical leadership style is what distinguished Hafez al-Assad from the beginning of his presidency.  Although his son Bashar was trained as a physician who had no political aspirations, he followed in his father’s footsteps quite naturally. Trained as an ophthalmologist, Bashar had the sensitivity and temperament of a very reluctant leader at first.  However, he quickly realized that he could not shirk the solemn responsibility which destiny had brought to him and his wife.
Because of his egalitarian approach to governance and genuine concern for the cohesion of Syria, he was quickly accepted by the people as an ideal replacement for his father.  The Syrian people especially embraced his socially dynamic and progressive wife Asma and received them with open arms.  They became an exemplary power couple who were admired for their genuine dedication to the interests of every Syrian citizen.
It is especially the Assad family’s extraordinary religious tolerance and their cultivation of a truly ecumenical atmosphere throughout all of Syria that has set them apart.  When compared to most of the other Muslim Arab countries, Syria has experienced a high degree of acceptance and camaraderie among a diverse number of religious communities.  This critical personal and family inclination toward religious tolerance has been actively translated into public policy; subsequently, all of Syrian society was distinguished by its remarkable religious tolerance and mutual acceptance.
The following excerpt quotes Asma al-Assad from an interview conducted just before the recent civil war was instigated by the Anglo-American Axis.  This revealing and laudatory article was quickly removed from the internet by its publisher because of the positive portrayal it painted of the Bashar family, particularly that of Asma’s enlightened stewardship.
Back in the car, I ask what religion the orphans are. “It’s not relevant,” says Asma al-Assad. “Let me try to explain it to you. That church is a part of my heritage because it’s a Syrian church. The Umayyad Mosque is the third-most-important holy Muslim site, but within the mosque is the tomb of Saint John the Baptist. We all kneel in the mosque in front of the tomb of Saint John the Baptist. That’s how religions live together in Syria—a way that I have never seen anywhere else in the world. We live side by side, and have historically. All the religions and cultures that have passed through these lands—the Armenians, Islam, Christianity, the Umayyads, the Ottomans—make up who I am.” [3] 
Russia has sent sophisticated anti-ship missiles to Syria
Reason #4: Russia, Iran, and the BRICS-aligned Nations stand with Assad
Russia has been ardently opposed to all of the bellicose meddling in the internal affairs of sovereign nations.  President Putin has stated on numerous occasions that there needs to be a new global platform of international relationships built on the foundation of implicit respect for national sovereignty.  He has expressed that the world community of nations is obligated to reject the outside interference of those powerful nations which routinely commit actions of naked aggression.
In fact, Russia, China and India have repeatedly singled out the USA and UK for their outright interference in the affairs of countries large and small, rich and poor.  Toward that end they have proclaimed their support for Syria’s only legitimate government under Bashar al-Assad.  Putin has even supplied Syria with sophisticated weaponry which he would only do in the case of unprovoked acts of aggression being systematically being perpetrated against the Syrian people.
The AAA does not yet understand the seriousness of the war crimes that they have committed in Syria.  Each act of violence against the people and their property has been recorded.  Every act of wanton destruction and needless killing has been catalogued for the purposes of accountability.  Russia and their allies are watching the conduct of ISIS and how they are supplied and financed.  It is common knowledge that the Israeli-Anglo-American intelligence services have coordinated the attacks on Syria from the very beginning of this manufactured civil war.
At the end of the day, the AAA will be held responsible for their actions and inactions which directly contributed to this terrible tragedy.  The Syrian Civil War has created the greatest European immigration crisis of the modern era.  Should the AAA continue their imperialistic designs against the Assad Administration and the people of Syria, they will bring upon themselves the wrath of the Russia bear.”

The ongoing refugee crisis in Europe has only exposed the hypocrisy of the self-righteous Western leadership, but that is about to end.
There’s now a well-coordinated countermeasures directed against the true enemies of humanity in the form of military, diplomatic and economic offensives.
Russia has sent sophisticated anti-ship missiles to Syria
Russian and Iranian military buildup in Syria are on the way. The White House just backtracked from its plan to shame China’s Xi Jinping’s state visit to Washington, amidst the controlled sinking of the fiat financial system of the Khazarian bankers.

Further, the Western arrogance and stupidity have never been more blatant than its refusal of a Russian offer for Syria’s Assad to step down in a more peaceful manner, three years earlier.
“Russia proposed more than three years ago that Syria’s president, Bashar al-Assad, could step down as part of a peace deal, according to a senior negotiator involved in back-channel discussions at the time.
Ahtisaari held talks with envoys from the five permanent members of the UN security council in February 2012. He said that during those discussions, the Russian ambassador, Vitaly Churkin, laid out a three-point plan, which included a proposal for Assad to cede power at some point after peace talks had started between the regime and the opposition.
But he said that the US, Britain and France were so convinced that the Syrian dictator was about to fall, they ignored the proposal.”

For the rarest time since the Syrian crisis begun, Assad hosted an interview with select journalists whereby he emphasized the fact that the real cause of the ongoing refugee crisis is the European support for terrorist organizations.

‘West crying for refugees with one eye, aiming gun with the other’

  • Assad

Question 1:Mr. President, thank you from the Russian media, from RT, from Rossiyskaya Gazeta, Channel 1, Russia 24, RIA Novosti, and NTV channel, for giving us all the opportunity to talk to you during this very critical phase of the crisis in Syria, where there are many questions that need to be addressed on where exactly the political process to achieve peace in Syria is heading, what’s the latest developments on the fight against ISIL, and the status of the Russian and Syrian partnership, and of course the enormous exodus of Syrian refugees that has been dominating headlines in Europe.
Now, the crisis in Syria is entering its fifth year. You have defied all predictions by Western leaders that you would be ousted imminently, and continue to serve today as the President of the Syrian Arab Republic. Now, there has been a lot of speculation recently caused by reports that officials from your government met with officials from your adversary Saudi Arabia that caused speculation that the political process in Syria has entered a new phase, but then statements from Saudi Arabia that continue to insist on your departure suggest that in fact very little has changed despite the grave threat that groups like ISIL pose far beyond Syria’s borders.
So, what is your position on the political process? How do you feel about power sharing and working with those groups in the opposition that continue to say publically that there can be no political solution in Syria unless that includes your immediate departure? Have they sent you any signal that they are willing to team up with you and your government? In addition to that, since the beginning of the crisis in Syria, many of those groups were calling to you to carry out reforms and political change. But is such change even possible now under the current circumstances with the war and the ongoing spread of terror in Syria?
President Assad: Let me first divide this question. It’s a multi question in one question. The first part regarding the political process, since the beginning of the crisis we adopted the dialogue approach, and there were many rounds of dialogue between Syrians in Syria, in Moscow, and in Geneva. Actually, the only step that has been made or achieved was in Moscow 2, not in Geneva, not in Moscow 1, and actually it’s a partial step, it’s not a full step, and that’s natural because it’s a big crisis. You cannot achieve solutions in a few hours or a few days. It’s a step forward, and we are waiting for Moscow 3. I think we need to continue the dialogue between the Syrian entities, political entities or political currents, in parallel with fighting terrorism in order to achieve or reach a consensus about the future of Syria. So, that’s what we have to continue.
