The truth always causes division among those who resent hearing it! A mistake made by a scholar, the argument of a hypocrite in writing and the perpetuation of the mistake to gamble with people’s mind created sedition among Muslims and the Zionists took full advantage!

Two Wahabi political regimes of the region, Saudi Arabia and Qatar, have been playing a major role in all of the theaters of conflict as soft powers with enormously deep pockets. Curiously enough, these two major Wahabi states are the staunchest enemies of democracy and individual liberties, yet they seem to be pressuring Syria to “democratize”.

Up until this time Arab nationalism was “essentially secular and had succeeded in reconciling Islam and nationalism “where during the 1960s and 1970s the Saudis used their money to transform the very character of Islam by financing Wahabi Islam around the world.

This political “Islam”, call for social and economic change, but it has as real purpose the radicalization of Muslim faith and wants to throw civilization back in the Middle Ages. It reached its peak in Afghanistan in December 1978 marking the “launching of an ‘international jihad’ through Pakistan.” The Iranian revolution further threatened the Wahabi Islam promoted by the Saudi government and led to the current power struggle between the Saudi funded and Western backed movements and the moderate Muslims for influence in the Islamic world because a real Islamic identity is consistent with secularism as understood in Western liberal democracies” and that the problem is one of “recent making” resulting from the “infection” of Islam by Wahabism.

The Prophet (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) said:

“From his progeny (descendants) will rise a Group who will recite the Holy Quran but it will not go below their throats. They will leave the Deen (Islam) just as an arrow leaves the bowstring. They will kill Muslims but spare the idolaters. If I ever confronted these people I would slaughter them just as the people of Aad had been destroyed’. (Mishkat, pp – 535). Imam Bukhari has quoted this Hadith from Abdullah Ibn Umar (رضئ اللہ تعالی عنہ) that Prophet (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) once prayed for Syria and Yemen. It is narrated that there were some people of Najd also present in the gathering and they requested the Prophet (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) to make supplication (du’a) for Najd also. Prophet (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) continued saying: ‘O! Allah, Shower Blessings on Syria and Yemen’. The people of Najd again requested the Prophet (pbuh)to offer prayers for Najd. The Prophet (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) said: ‘It is a place of tremor and mischief (Fitna) and the Horn of Shaitaan will rise from there.” (Bukhari, Vol – ii, P – 1050).
The incompatibility of Islam with secular, liberal, democratic forms of government, is a result of Wahabi/Salafi ideas of Islam propagated by the Saudi government and arising from U.S. opposition to and fear of Arab nationalism. By 1957 the United States perceived Arab nationalism as the greatest threat to its interest in the region, rather than communism, and that “radical Islam was to be the antidote to Arab nationalism”.

Also the British used Wahhabis/Salafis to make an Arab revolt against Ottoman Khilafa but the Arab nationalism and secularism is what really brought down the Ottomans but the wahabis took advantage of this to seize power. After that Khilaf was destroyed and left big wounds and pains all over Muslim lands caused by the sectarian seeds, till this day, there are countless attempts in which the Turkish rulers are being used against Arabs exploiting their desire to revive the Ottomans.

The Ottomans, rulers of Arabia at that time were set out to completely smash the locally called Wahabis. Ottomans did not succeed very well; hence Wahabi’s influence remained to control the Muslim holy sites and Mosques in and around Arabia. Wahabis have spent last 300 years waiting for an opportune time to gain political influence and as we witness these days, the Ottomans and Salafi leaders join their power in common targets under the Imperialist directions but stab each other when it comes about the personal interest.

Saudi Arabia

The Saudi regime has a policy of preservation of a Saudi Nationalist Identity And Culture. This protects the monarchy and its corrupt control of Arabia’s resources. In order to preserve it, it adopts policies of elitism, segregation, discrimination. That includes denying citizenship and equal status to non Saudi Muslims who have resided there for generations. (In fact, the Saudi adoption of Saudi nationality and nationalism is born of the Judeo Christian biblical conceptualization of national identity which serves to justify Zionism- they are of the same origin).

The King consolidated his authority ruthlessly, killing every Muslim who did not convert to Salafism and destroying the entire Islamic heritage kept intact for 1300 years by successive Muslim governments.

It is reported that, during the last expansion of Prophet’s ( صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) mosque in late 1980s, Saudis have structurally partitioned the Green Dome from the rest of the Mosque in preparation for razing it into rubble by a powerful dynamite.

Saudi Government claims their country is free from slavery but are hesitant to allow international scrutiny of their claim. They continue to refuse to sign United Nations treaties on slavery and human rights abuses, probably because they do not want to be covred under these obligations. They have not signed any extradition treaty even with Unted States to protect members of Royal family being extradited out of Saudi Arabia for their alleged crimes but, still.

Mutawwas (Saudi Religious Police) are nothing but Government paid informers, well connected with General Intelligence Directorate (Saudi Secret Service), assigned to keep an eye on individual members of public and help Saudi Royals to remain in power. They are trained to keep an eagle’s eye on public activities and close their eyes completely from the members of Royal family. Mutawwas work under the network of Government run Salafi Dawa Centers whose responsibility is to baptize people into Salafism, a political doctrine imposed on people in the name of Islam.

The Western powers sustain and protect the Saudi monarchy from various threats while working to replace it with their own idea: Free officers movement (FOM) in Egypt was the start of this.

All Saudi princes including the king Fahad are Wahabis. They grew up in schools and education system run by Wahabis. Western education to some of them has not changed their outlook. Saudi King(s) have created a special government department which looks after all the religious affairs including Hajj pilgrimage, opening madarssa – the key to galvanizing Muslims in their home countries. With cash at their disposal the local Mullahs are free to help terrorists find shelter, food money and training. Madarssa curriculum is based on Wahabi teachings.

From 1973 – 2001, the price of oil scaled new height; hence more money became available to be distributed through out the Muslim world. All teachers of the Madarassas, Mullahs of the Mosques under pretext of Hajj pilgrimage underwent Wahabi training in religious schools in Saudi Arabia. Care was taken not to indulge in political propaganda to alarm the home country government. The latter was left for the mullah’s and teacher to undertake after their return.

In Afghanistan, the Saudis involved themselves in a first war of the twentieth century against the “infidel”. To this, they were encouraged by the USA and Saudi’s paid for their religious indoctrination and recruitment thru the Mosques and Madarssas built by them all over the world.

During the Crimean War in the mid 19th century the British supported the Ottoman Turks against the Russian threat. At the same time, the Ottomans were looking to closer relations with European powers.

The British stirred the Arabs against the Turks and now they stir the new Ottomans against the Arabs.

In the 18th century, however, a reactionary reform movement – later called Wahabism – had begun among the Arabs. The Wahabis, and the British, supported the warlord chieftain Ibn Saud and legitimized the Saudi dynasty and its struggle against the Ottomans. In the periods when Wahabis took control of the Holy Places in Arabia from the Turks (with British support) they proceeded to destroy 1500 years of Muslim heritage, including the desecration of the tombs of the wives and companions of the Holy Prophet. And since the Ottomans had control of the Caliphate – the symbolic leadership of all Muslims – it seemed that Islam would be dealt a telling blow. There were some Europeans in this period who confidently predicted the demise of the Islamic faith-so they decided to create a second entity called Israel. This was arguably essential for the survival of Wahabism itself and, at the same time it was a blow for the moderate schools preacing the real Islam – it empowered the “fundamentalists”.

This deceptive interpretation of history is derived from Abdul Wahhab, who appeared in the mid-18th century. According to his memoirs, a British spy by the name of Hempher, was assigned to the Middle East in order to discover ways to undermine Islam, with the aim of advancing British control over the region. His mission eventually focussed on the support of Wahhab, and backing him through the Saudi family, through whom he preached the British’s destructive message of Islam.

Essentially, Wahhab’s innovations made it legal for his followers to fight other Muslims, by pronouncing them “unbelievers”, under the pretense of “purifying” Islam, but in reality serving British strategy against the great Ottoman Empire. Wahhab did so by claiming that all of Islamic history, except for the generations of the Salaf, that is, from the time of the Math’habs onward, had fallen out of Islam.

Once adherence of the Muslims had been unbound from their traditional legal schools, it was possible for the British and their agents to come in with their own. And this is the purpose of the Salafi movement.

While the Saudis have been under agreement with the CIA to finance many of its covert activities, including the funding of the Mujahideen in Afghanistan, and the support of Islamic terrorists worldwide, many of the Saudi scholars as well as the government are putting on a public face of rejecting terrorism and bin Laden. They claim that terrorism and anti-government activities are contrary to the true tenets of Salafism.

This is not true. At times the purpose of Salafism is to inculcate terrorism, but in general, the purpose of Salafism is to provide a new Math’hab, to estrange the world’s Muslim population from traditional Islam, and thereby lead them wherever Western interests deem fit.

The Wahabi-backed House of Saud took full control of the Hijaz, Mecca and Medina, in 1924 and established the modern state of Saudi Arabia, with Wahabism (or Salafism) as its official religion. Thereafter, until the present day, the Saudi regime has promoted Wahabism (Arab purism) – an 18th C. Hanbalite heresy – as normative Islam throughout the Muslim world. The Saudi regime was consolidated on massive oil wealth. From the 1930s until the present day the Saudis have spent vast sums of money building Wahabi mosques, printing Wahabi literature and funding Wahabi institutions world-wide. By the end of the 20th century, with Wahabi control of the Holy Places intact, virtually every aspect and corner of modern Islam has been penetrated by Wahabi influence through the agency of the Saudi regime.

Wahabi Islam is a fossilized superstition that replaces the spirit of a living religious tradition with the dead hand of literalism motivated, at core, by Arab chauvanism, the deep belief that only Arabs are “true” Muslims and that only Arabs can dictate the norms of religion to the Muslim world. Other related forms of fundamentalism such as that inspired by the Egyptian Sayyid Qutb are extensions of the same ideology. It was none other than the Saudis and their Masonic origins, who have betrayed the Muslim and the Arab world. The pain that is today experienced in Iraq and Palestine and Syria is a result from this betrayal. The Saudis and their Islam has been formed by the British in order to undermine the true Islam and also destroy the Ottoman Caliphate.

The radical faction of Islam, known as the Salafi, are a movement created through British intrigue and coordination with occult secret societies, toward fomenting a “Clash of Civilizations”. “According to CIA agent Miles Copeland, the Americans began looking for a Muslim Billy Graham around 1955… When finding or creating a Muslim Billy Graham proved elusive, the CIA began to cooperate with the Muslim Brotherhood, the Muslim mass organization founded in Egypt but with followers throughout the Arab Middle East… This signaled the beginning of an alliance between the traditional regimes and mass Islamic movements against Nasser and other secular forces”

The British, supported the creation of a Jewish state in Palestine after World War 2. Reminescent of the strategic role played by the Crusader states in the Middle Ages, this venture restored the opportunities of enmity for the British to exploit. Having removed the Ottomans from the equation the British needed leverage against the newly Arab puppets called al Saud. It is entirely true to form that the British continue to support both the Israelis and the Saudis and to juggle their interests between them. British petroleum interests have a huge stake in the Middle East. The CIA was following the example of British Intelligence and sought to use Islam to further its goals. They wanted to find a charismatic religious leader that they could promote and control and they began to cooperate with groups such as the Muslim Brotherhood.

The Brotherhood became an even more important asset after Nasser announced the Egyptian takeover of the Suez. Author Stephen Dorril documents how this move was viewed from Britain,

“On 26 July in Alexandria, in a calm speech, but one that was described by London as hysterical, Nasser made his nationalisation announcement, which from a strictly legal point of view was no more ‘than a decision to buy out the shareholders.’ That night in Downing Street, [British Prime Minister] Eden’s bitterness at the decision was not concealed from his guests… Eden summoned a council of war, which continued until 4 a.m. An emotional Prime Minister told his colleagues that Nasser could not be allowed, in Eden’s phrase, ‘to have his hand on our windpipe.’ The ‘muslim Mussolini’ must be ‘destroyed.’ Eden added: ‘I want him removed and I don’t give a damn if there’s anarchy and chaos in Egypt.'”

To prepare the way for the desired coup the British Information Research Department (IRD) was called into action. They ratcheted up their efforts to control radio broadcasts into Egypt and they planted false stories in the BBC, the London Press Service and the Arab News Agency. Forged documents were created that suggested that Nasser was planning to take over the entire Middle East oil trade, and a bogus report was disseminated that alleged that Egyptian dissidents were being sent to a concentration camp manned by ex-Nazis.

The British had a problem though in deciding who would take over Egypt after Nasser’s removal. MI-6 held meetings with members of the old Wafd party and allies of former premier Nahas Pasha. The original Free Officer’s leader General Neguib, who had been removed and placed under house arrest by Nasser, was viewed as a possible president, and some British circles even advocated that Prince Abdul Monheim, the most ‘presentable’ Egyptian royal, be made king.

According to Dorril, the most important recruit to the British plot to topple Nasser was an Egyptian Intelligence officer Isameddine Mahmoud Khalil, who was maintained as a contact by supplying him with intelligence about Egypt’s most pressing enemy: Israel. Dorril offers a Mossad chief’s remarks about this situation who said, “Harming Israel’s security by handing over secret information about her did not apparently trouble the conscience of the British.” This was a very complicated time for the British, because they were presently working with Israel to coordinate a military attack on Egypt which eventually took place in October.

In the end all of this British subversion and agitation failed, even after they decided upon the direct military confrontation that was played out in the Suez War of October 1956. Popular Egyptian support for Nasser was just too much, and the international community sided with Nasser against the British as well, forcing the Suez Canal to be returned to Egypt. Nasser emerged leading an Egypt finally free from British control. The secular Egyptian government has traditionally been one of the toughest enemies of Islamic terrorism, whereas the single most important backer of Egyptian terror groups has been Britain.

The Gladstonian policy of divide-and-exploit prevails in British policy to this day. In the post-WW2 environment, with the decline of the British Empire and the rise of American global dominance, the Americans have adopted and continued the same policy. It is no accident that the Israeli and Saudi lobbies – are the largest and most influential lobby groups in Washington as it protects its own creation while Turkish rulers were integrated in the picture as executors of the creations’ desire.

The West recklessly ignored some rulers’ wish to revive the Ottoman Empire but they thought to use it at some point against Arab nationalism: exploiting the historical background , which ensured the Zionists that a big powerful enemy could not arise in the Middle East, and with the help of the puritanist Islam, founded the military brand of Salafi called Al Qaeda and the political wing called Muslim Brotherhood, a situation that remains to this day. Today an Anglo-American alliance – along with Zionism – and guided by British and oil interests, continues the long British tradition of exploitative interference in and manipulation of the politics of the Middle East, that has stimulated, spread and consolidated fundamentalist Islam at the expense of other expressions of Islamic religion. Support for the oil-rich Saudis has also facilitated the continued infiltration of Wahabi doctrine into the new Western Muslim communities. Islam in the West has been characterized by prolonged “turf wars” to see who controls and speaks for the Western Muslim communities. In most cases, Muslims in the West have been dislocated from the traditional madhabs and have little or no clerical supervision in their new homes. In these circumstances, Salafism – aided by Saudi money – finds fertile soil.

Saudi Arabia and Qatar

These neighboring petro-monarchies have sought to influence political transformations in the Levant and North Africa on their own respective terms, both to advance geopolitical interests and to ensure that their own populations do not initiate popular uprisings.

Although neither country is a bastion of democracy at home, Qatar has proven much more amenable than Saudi Arabia to bolstering” USA-democratic” Islamist movements abroad. The resulting Saudi-Qatari rivalry undermines Saudi Arabia’s historic role as the “self-proclaimed bulwark of Islamic conservatism” in the Middle East and the powerhouse of the Gulf Cooperation Council.

A few days ago, a coalition of 14 groups of Al Qaeda terrorists among others gather and issue a statement vowing to establish an Islamist state and denounce the ‘lecherous US way of life it’s trying to impose on them’ through the new coalition of opposition figures in exile it created in Qatar,


Prior to Qatar’s indepedence in 1971, the Saudi royal family’s connections with Qatari businessmen, members of Qatar’s ruling family, and Qatari Bedouin tribes facilitated strong Saudi influence in the affairs of its tiny Gulf neighbor.

In 1992, two Qatari guards were killed in a clash along the Saudi-Qatari border, precipitating a decade of poor relations until September 2007, when Qatar’s head of state paid a visit to the Saudi royal family in Riyadh, followed by a visit of Saudi King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz to Doha in December. .

The Arab Awakening has reignited tensions. Saudi Arabia – frequently labeled the “counter-revolutionary state” for its role in suppressing democratic movements throughout the region – fears the wave of popular uprisings while Qatar has sided with revolutionary forces.

The influence exercised over Muslim Brotherhood have become a source of particular tension as in Qatar’s relation with Turkey too,where Qatar has fostered an alliance with the Muslim Brotherhood.

Indications of Qatar’s influence continued to surface through Yusuf al-Qaradawi, a Qatari national of Egyptian origin – member of the Muslim Brotherhood.

Expected that the con­fronta­tions among the youth of the rev­o­lu­tion in Tahrir Square pro­test­ers, the sup­port­ers of the junta and sup­port­ers of Salafi/Muslim Broth­er­hood to worsen. It is most likely that the hid­den hands will try to esca­late the con­fronta­tions, giv­ing jus­ti­fi­ca­tion for a pos­si­ble mil­i­tary coup, which will enter Egypt in a new July Revolution.

In Tunisia it was attributed the Islamist Ennahda party’s success to an infusion of Qatari petro-dollars. The fact that Prime Minister Rashid al-Ghannouchi’s first post-election international visit was to Qatar – and that his son-in-law, formerly a researcher for Al Jazeera in Doha, became his Foreign Minister – has further stoked suspicions about ties between the Gulf emirate and the Ennahda party.

The speculation has even led to protests in Tunisia against Qatari interference in Tunisia’s affairs.

Freedom and Justice Party with 24.3 percent of the vote in Egypt – received a “steady stream of funding, much of it originating in the Gulf States, which gave Salafi candidates a significant financial edge over their rivals.”

Revkin adds that Saudi support for Egyptian Salafis is “spiritual as well as material.” A Salafi cleric from Saudi Arabia, Adnan Alkhtiry, visited Egypt shortly before the parliamentary elections and delivered a sermon encouraging Egypt’s conservative Muslims to take advantage of “a great opportunity” to “establish an Islamic state” Riyadh’s support for Salafi factions in countries undergoing political openings is the latest attempt to counter the rise of regional movements that conflict with the kingdom’s interests. Qatar’s influence could be crowded out and Doha may need to reign in its international ambitions and address its democratic deficit at home.

Indeed, when it comes to democracy in the Gulf, the two kingdoms are rivals no more and use many clerics with radical views who are flocking to social media ,with an ever-growing numbers of followers who largely refrain from wading into politics, and occasionally issue fatawa solely to remind citizens of their obligatory submission to Saudi political will and its hegemony in other countries using the Ikhwan from the tribal confederations of Arabia who converted to Wahhabism, and serve as a military force of Saud,destroying towns and ruthlessly killing the inhabitants including women and children.

Its such a pity that Muslims deviate form the main path of peace and believing in One God and let themselves influenced by the Zionist demons! Real Muslims believe in modesty, Wahhabi believe in extremism! Real Muslims believe that killing people just because they don’t believe in real Islam is a sin, as long as they do not harm your land and people, Wahhabi believe that it is an obligation for killing those who do not believe in their idea of Islam as one of the most fundamentals of Islam known as Jihad, and Allah will reward those killings.

Wahhabi believe that human being should strive for 72 virgins they can get in heaven, they believe that the more jihad you do the more virgins you will get in heaven. Real Muslims believe that we should follow Allah because of the Love for Allah and not for having sex with 72 virgins.

Wahhabi believe that women should not take education other than reading Quran and Hadith. All moderate Muslims believe that for all human being education is a must.

Wahabi women are not allowed to drive a car, while in other Muslim countries, the women are pilots!

Syria has presented the UN Security Council a list of 143 foreign citizens killed in Syria fighting government troops. Damascus hopes the move will force the UN to declare the presence of foreign nationals in Syria to be international terrorism.

The Syrian government reportedly presented proof that citizens of 19 different nations had fought in the country alongside rebel forces.

Bashar Jaafari, Syria’s permanent representative to the United Nations, wrote a letter the Security Council requesting they register the list of mercenaries as an official document on the UN’s agenda of “measures to combat international terrorism.”

The UN Security Council has not yet officially recognized Syria as a country confronting international terrorism. Last month, Syria delivered a previous version of the list containing 108 names.

The new list contains the names of citizens from 19 countries accused of joining Syria’s rebels: Afghanistan, Algeria, Azerbaijan, Chad, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon…

Friends of Syria

Tens of years during which most of the Arab countries and their summits did not provide anything to the Palestinian cause but words and speeches, while the Palestinian people was the sole victim, and most of the Arab countries made plots against each other and stood up against the resistance in Lebanon, Palestine and Syria.

“They (referring to the Zionists) are not wolves, but most of us became ewes,” said Qatari Prime Minister Hamad bin Jassem on Saturday during the urgent ministerial meeting of the Arab League in Cairo to tackle the Zionist assault on Gaza.

It took long for the Arab leaders to find a suitable description for their fear of the Zionist entity. Their meetings which coincided with attacking Gaza have resulted in nothing but in the first aid which was even insufficient for healing the wounds of victims.

Gaza had been under a similar attack in 2008…

The Zionist military command decision to process “the column of clouds” -why now ?

To answer this question, we must assess the general scene.
With an active Arab media today to assess the role of Egypt known for its previous position and Salafist movement, there is a reality settled, the Egyptian position will not change ,as what happened in Egypt was not a change in the system, but only a change of the name of the puppet, leaving the essence the same as changing the title, so there is no fear for the Southwestern Front for Israel other than the quantum missile available in the hands of the Palestinian fighters.
Tunisia, Libya and Morocco? They are a replica of Egypt, but in different sizes, and the Libyan reality was taken to mold another substance and image.
Algeria ‘s secularism remained the only one existent in the North Africa, where the leadership of the “Arab Spring”, headed by Mr. Bernard Levy is waiting for the proper moment , and delayed the beginning of a social “struggle” only wait to see what it will accrue to the situation in Syria.

The most prominent change defined by this axis founded on the data emerging in recent years was the obvious reason for the pre-emptive war on Syria from the inside.After decades of known fragmentation of the Levant and sponsored disagreements among its leaders ,the weak link of it ,Iraq fell first as it was the cause of successive wars and crises spread from the days of Saddam Hussein’s power until today when the US ,under false pretext and after the bloodshed of millions of Iraqis managed to establish its troops closer to the borders of resistance.At the same time the accumulated expertise and experience in Syria, or in the occupied Palestine Syrian the axis of resistance became more aware of the potential and more aware of the limits of the power of the enemy.Syrian diplomacy succeeded to avoid the military conflict with Turkey as wished by Turkish leaders, like Erdogan and get the support of the Turkish people converted to strategic partners, and demonstrated this success ,when the split occurred in Turkey between the Turkish leadership and Turkish people who refused to accept their country being seen in the partnership of the Israeli-west axis.

Israel, since 1860, succeeded to create inside Syria and also inside Lebanon, loyal small groups for the Zionist project taking advantage of a few administrative corrupted elements trying to make it look, without succes,as a general sittuation present in Syria, symbols able to twist the reality ,covered up sometime, by slogans regarding development and construction nationalism and politics at other times.All of these groups began to fade in Lebanon and Syria, and the Western military project began to break-up, creating serious problems on the scene, in spite of all attempts to distort the reality .As a result, with the approaching end of the crisis done by Israelis inside Syria, reflected in the inevitable Syrian response to Israel and when the entity will be forced to face the failure of breaching the resistance for Gaza,and as we have mentioned , with a secured Southern front ,Israel decided that it must take advantage of the current conditions that would soon dissipate, in the Syrian crisis, to liquidate the outpost in Gaza.
Arab League?
After the failure of UNSC to stop and condemn Israel( as always) and where all its active members are the players of the game by Israeli side, AL sobs in front of cameras ,visits the destructed sites of the murdered Palestinians and giggles in the back of the stage counting the money! Why don’t the Gulfers ask for real support of the Palestinians?Why not asking for the arming of resistance,as they did for the terrorists in Syria?Treacherous Qatari Emir Identified Locations of Hamas Leaders during his Visit to Gaza where the residence and offices of a number of Hamas leaders were identified during the recent visit to the Gaza Strip by Zionist puppet Qatar’s King and later targeted by Israeli missile and bomb attacks, informed sources disclosed.

The treacherous emir of Qatar gifted a number of watches and ballpoint pens to Hamas leaders, which transmitted low-frequency signals to Israeli satellites, the sources, who asked to remain unnamed due to the sensitivity of the information, told FNA, adding that the Israeli military officials would then use the received signals to spot and assassinate senior Hamas officials when he arrived in Gaza on October 23 to become the first head of state to visit the besieged enclave since the Palestinian resistance movement, Hamas, took power in the territory five years ago. Qatari Emir has repeatedly met with Israeli leaders, and is working hard to boost the diplomatic clout of his small Persian Gulf country.The new wave of Israeli aggression on the Gaza Strip has claimed more than 41 lives since November 14. Ahmed al-Ja’abari, the popular and influential head of the Hamas military wing, the Ezzedeen al-Qassam Brigades, was assassinated in an Israeli attack on his car on Wednesday.On Friday, Ahmed Abu Jalal, a field commander of the Ezzedeen al-Qassam Brigades, was also killed in an Israeli airstrike on the central Gaza district of Maghazi.

*The Real Story* A Documentary Film: Scenes from The Conspiracy Chapters Against Syria

Starting from joint legal and moral responsibility of shouldering the sublime message of information embodied in professionally and objectively transferring truth to the public opinion away from the unilateral vision associated with political agendas, and strongly believing in the importance of working together as media institutions which work is regulated by media honor charter and the ethics of profession for a subjective information oriented towards national and nationalistic issues realizing glory and dignity of Arab people, rounding up their views and unifying their stances, it is important to state that Syria, since the beginning of the crisis it is passing through, is subject to a major media misleading campaign assumed by both Arab and foreign information media that have dedicated themselves as an information arm for the armed terrorist groups covering up their terrorist attacks against the Syrian people, both civilians and soldiers, and coordinating with them in fabricating and photographing massacres committed by those armed groups against Syrian citizens with a view to accusing the Syrian Arab army, order-keeping forces and the government, without any consideration of the circumstances, backgrounds and aims of committing such crimes, and to whom interest and within what contexts they have been committed, only for the purpose of defaming Syria and damaging its stances on Arab, regional and international levels.

International Conference on “9/11 Revisited – Seeking the Truth”

Perdana Global Peace Foundation (PGPF)

Kuala Lumpur, November 2012


The tragic events of September 11, 2001 constitute a fundamental landmark in American history,  a decisive watershed, a breaking point.

Millions of people have been misled regarding the causes and consequences of 9/11.

September 11 2001 opens up an era of crisis, upheaval and militarization of American society. The post September 11, 2001 era is marked by the outright criminalization of the US State, including its judicial, foreign policy, national security and intelligence apparatus.

9/11 marks the onslaught of the “Global War on Terrorism” (GWOT), used as a pretext and a justification by the US and its NATO allies to carry out a “war without borders”, a global war of conquest. 

A far-reaching overhaul of US military doctrine was launched in the wake of 9/11.

9/11 was also a stepping stone towards the relentless repeal of civil liberties, the militarization of law enforcement and the inauguration of “Police State USA”.

In assessing the crimes associated with 9/11 in the context of a legal procedure, we must distinguish between those associated with the actual event, namely the loss of life and the destruction of property on 9/11,  from the crimes committed in the aftermath of September 11, 2001 “in the name of 9/11″.

The latter build  upon the former. We are dealing with two related dimensions of criminality. The crimes committed “in the name of  9/11″ involving acts of war are far-reaching, resulting in the deaths of millions of people as well as the destruction of entire countries.

The 9/11 event in itself– which becomes symbolic– is used to justify the onslaught of the post 9/11 US-NATO military agenda, under the banner of the “Global War on Terrorism” (GWOT), not to mention the ushering in of the Homeland police state and the repeal of civil liberties.

The crimes committed in the name of 9/11 broadly consist in two intimately related processes:

1. The launching of the “Global War on Terrorism” (GWOT), used as a pretext and a justification to Wage a War of Conquest. This GWOT mandate was used to justify the 2001 and 2003 invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq. The GWOT mandate has since extended its grip to a large number of countries in Africa, the Middle East and Southeast Asia, where the US and its NATO allies are intervening selectively under a counterterrorism mandate.

2. The derogation of civil liberties and the instatement of an Orwellian police state apparatus within Western countries. In the US, the introduction of the PATRIOT legislation and the establishment of the Department of Homeland Security in the immediate wake of the 9/11 attacks set the stage for the subsequentrestructuring of the judicial and law enforcement apparatus, culminating in the legalization of extrajudicial assassinations under an alleged  counter-terrorism mandate.  

The 9/11 attacks constitute what is referred to in intelligence parlance as a “massive casualty producing event” conducive to the deaths of civilians.

The dramatic loss of life on the morning of 9/11 resulting from an initial criminal act is used as a pretext and a justification to wage an all out war of retribution, in the name of 9/11 against the alleged perpetrators of 9/11, namely the “state sponsors of terrorism”, including Afghanistan, Iraq as well as Iran.

We are dealing with a diabolical and criminal project. The civilian deaths resulting from the 911 attacks are an instrument of war propaganda, applied to build a consensus in favor of an outright  war of global domination.  

The perpetrators of war propaganda are complicit in the conduct of extensive war crimes, in that they readily justify acts of war as counter-terrorism and/or humanitarian operations (R2P) launched to protect civilians. The “Just War” (Jus ad Bellum) concept prevails: The killing of civilians in Afghanistan and Iraq are “rightfully” undertaken in retribution for the deaths incurred on 9/11.

Evidence is fabricated to the effect that the “state sponsors of terrorism” had committed, on the morning of 9/11, an outright act of war against the United States.

Realities are turned upside down.  The US and its allies are the victims of foreign aggression. America’s crimes of war in Afghanistan and Iraq are committed in the name of 9/11 under a counter terrorism mandate. 

The 9/11 attacks are used to  harness public opinion into supporting a war without borders. Endless wars of aggression under the humanitarian cloak of “counter-terrorism” are set in motion. 

Chronology of Events

At eleven o’clock, on the morning of September 11, the Bush administration had already announced that Al Qaeda was responsible for the attacks on the World Trade Center (WTC) and the Pentagon. This assertion was made prior to the conduct of an in-depth police investigation.

CIA Director George Tenet stated that same morning that Osama bin Laden had the capacity to plan  “multiple attacks with little or no warning.”

Secretary of State Colin Powell called the attacks “an act of war” and President Bush confirmed in an evening televised address to the Nation that he would “make no distinction between the terrorists who committed these acts and those [foreign governments] who harbor them”.

Former CIA Director James Woolsey, without mentioning Afghanistan, pointed his finger at “state sponsorship,” implying the complicity of one or more foreign governments. In the words of former National Security Adviser, Lawrence Eagleburger, “I think we will show when we get attacked like this, we are terrible in our strength and in our retribution.”

That same evening at 9:30 pm, a “War Cabinet” was formed integrated by a select number of top intelligence and military advisors. And at 11:00 pm, at the end of that historic meeting at the White House, the “War on Terrorism” was officially launched.

The war cabinet had decided to launch an an illegal and criminal war on Afghanistan, based on essentially two interrelated concepts:

1.  The 9/11 attacks although allegedly conducted by Al Qaeda were upheld as an all out military attack by a foreign power.

2. Afghanistan in allegedly supporting Al Qaeda, was responsible for an act of military aggression directed against  the United States of America.

The tragic events of 9/11 provided the required justification to wage war on Afghanistan on “humanitarian grounds”, with the full support of World public opinion and the endorsement of the “international community”.  Several prominent “progressive” intellectuals made a case for “retaliation against terrorism”, on moral and ethical grounds. In taking on this stance they provided legitimacy to the conduct of war crimes. The “just cause” military doctrine (jus ad bellum) was accepted and upheld at face value as a legitimate response to 9/11. 

In the wake of 9/11, the antiwar movement was completely isolated. The trade unions and civil society organizations had swallowed the media lies and government propaganda. They had accepted a war of retribution against Afghanistan, an impoverished country in Central Asia of 30 million people.

The myth of the “outside enemy” and the threat of “Islamic terrorists” was the cornerstone of the Bush administration’s military doctrine, used as a pretext to invade Afghanistan and Iraq, not to mention the repeal of civil liberties and constitutional government in America. The post 9/11 era was also characterised by the development of Islamophobia, including routine ethnic profiling directed against Muslims.

Where was Osama bin Laden on September 11, 2001?

Is there any proof to the effect that Osama bin Laden, the bogeyman, coordinated the 9/11 attacks as claimed in the official 9/11 narrative?

According to CBS news (Dan Rather, January 28, 2002), “Enemy Number One” was admitted to the urology ward of a Pakistani military hospital in Rawalpindi on September 10, 2001, courtesy of America’s indefectible ally Pakistan. Rawalpindi is the Headquarters of the Pakistani military including its intelligence apparatus. He could have been arrested at short notice which would have “saved us a lot of trouble”, but then we would not have had an Osama Legend, which has fed the news chain as well as presidential speeches in the course of the last eleven years.

DAN RATHER. As the United states and its allies in the war on terrorism press the hunt for Osama bin Laden, CBS News has exclusive information tonight about where bin Laden was and what he was doing in the last hours before his followers struck the United States September 11.

This is the result of hard-nosed investigative reporting by a team of CBS news journalists, and by one of the best foreign correspondents in the business, CBS`s Barry Petersen. Here is his report.

(BEGIN VIDEOTAPE) BARRY PETERSEN, CBS CORRESPONDENT (voice-over): Everyone remembers what happened on September 11. Here`s the story of what may have happened the night before. It is a tale as twisted as the hunt for Osama bin Laden.

CBS News has been told that the night before the September 11 terrorist attack, Osama bin Laden was in Pakistan. He was getting medical treatment with the support of the very military that days later pledged its backing for the U.S. war on terror in Afghanistan. (transcript of CBS report, seehttp://www.globalresearch.ca/articles/CBS203A.html , see alsohttp://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2002/01/28/eveningnews/main325887.shtml

CBS News footage of the Rawalpindi, Pakistan, hospital where bin Laden was allegedly treated the day before 9/11. [Source: CBS News]

CBS News footage of the Rawalpindi, Pakistan, hospital where bin Laden was allegedly treated the day before 9/11.

The foregoing CBS report which  is of utmost relevance indicates two obvious facts:

1. Osama bin Laden could not reasonably have coordinated the 9/11 attacks from his hospital bed;

2. The hospital was under the jurisdiction of the Pakistani Armed Forces, which has close links to the Pentagon. Osama bin Laden’s whereabouts were known to both the Pakistani and US military.

 U.S. military and intelligence advisers based in Rawalpindi. were working closely with their Pakistani counterparts. Again, no attempt was made to arrest America’s best known fugitive. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld claimed, at the time, that the whereabouts of Osama bin Laden were unknown. According to Rumsfeld:  “Its like looking for a needle in a stack of hay”.

Recovering from his hospital treatment in Rawalpindi on the 11th of September, how could Osama have coordinated the 9/11 attacks?

How could Afghanistan be made responsible for these attacks by Al Qaeda? Bin Laden is a national of Saudi Arabia who, according to CBS News, was not in Afghanistan, but in Pakistan at the time of the attacks.

September 12,  2001: The Invasion of Afghanistan: NATO’s Doctrine of Collective Security

The immediate response of the US and its NATO allies to the 9/11 attacks was to the declare a war of retribution against Afghanistan on the grounds that the Taliban government was protecting “terror mastermind” Osama bin Laden, who at the time of the attacks was in Pakistan, protected by the Pakistani military and intelligence apparatus. In a bitter irony, the Pakistani government  and military, which had facilitated bin Laden’s hospitalization in Rawalpindi on September 10, offered to assist the US in “going after bin Laden”.  An agreement to this effect was reached on September 12 in Washington between the head of Pakistan’s military Intelligence (ISI) General Mahmoud Ahmed and Secretary Colin Powell.

Parroting official statements, the Western media mantra on September 12, 2001 had already approved the launching of “punitive actions” directed against civilian targets in Afghanistan. In the words of William Saffire writing in the New York Times: “When we reasonably determine our attackers’ bases and camps, we must pulverize them — minimizing but accepting the risk of collateral damage” — and act overtly or covertly to destabilize terror’s national hosts”.

By allegedly harboring bin Laden, the Afghan government was complicit, according to both the US administration and NATO, for having waged an act of war against the United States.

This decision was taken by the Bush-Cheney war cabinet in the evening of September 11, 2001. It was based on the presumption, “confirmed” by the head of the CIA that Al Qaeda was behind the attacks.

On the following morning, September 12, 2001, NATO’s Atlantic Council meeting in Brussels, endorsed the Bush administration’s declaration of war on Afghanistan (taken by the war cabinet at 11pm on September 11), invoking Article 5 of the Washington Treaty.

Meanwhile, on two occasions in the course of September 2001, the Afghan government –through diplomatic channels– offered to hand over Osama Bin laden to US Justice. These overtures were turned down by president Bush, on the grounds that America “does not negotiate with terrorists”.

The War on Afghanistan: First Stage of the “Global War on Terrorism”

The war on Afghanistan was launched 26 days later on the morning of October 7, 2001. The timing of this war begs the question: how long does it take to plan and implement a major theater war several thousand miles away.

Military analysts will confirm that a major theater war takes months and months, up to a year or more of advanced preparations. Confirmed by press reports, the war on Afghanistan was already in an advanced state of readiness prior to September 11, 2001, which begs the question of foreknowledge of the 9/11 attacks.

In other words, the 9/11 attacks were used as a means to trigger a military agenda which was already on the drawing board of both the Pentagon and NATO.

The repeal of civil liberties in America was launched in parallel with the bombing and invasion of Afghanistan. Immediately following 9/11, the PATRIOT legislation was adopted. The Homeland Security apparatus was launched, with a view to “protecting Americans against terrorists”. This post-911 legal and institutional framework had been carefully crafted prior to the 9/11 attacks.

Article 5 of the Washington Treaty: NATO’s Legal Argument

In invoking Article 5 on the morning of September 12, 2001, NATO’s Atlantic Council endorsed a criminal military agenda, in derogation of international law.

The legal argument used by Washington and NATO to invade Afghanistan was that the September 11 attacks constituted an undeclared “armed attack” “from abroad” by an unnamed foreign power, and that consequently “the laws of war” apply, allowing the nation under attack, to strike back in the name of “self-defense”.

On the morning of September 12, 2001, NATO’s North Atlantic Council meeting in Brussels, responded to the decision of the War Cabinet taken a few hours earlier at 11pm on 9/11, adopted the following resolution:

“if it is determined that the [September 11, 2001] attack against the United States wasdirected from abroad [Afghanistan] against “The North Atlantic area“, it shall be regarded as an action covered by Article 5 of the Washington Treaty”. (emphasis added)

In this regard, Article 5 of the Washington Treaty stipulates that if:

“The Parties agree that an armed attack against one or more of them in Europe or North America shall be considered an attack against them all and consequently they agree that, if such an armed attack occurs, each of them, in exercise of the right of individual or collective self-defence recognised by Article 51 of the Charter of the United Nations, will assist the Party or Parties so attacked by taking forthwith, individually and in concert with the other Parties, such action as it deems necessary,including the use of armed force, to restore and maintain the security of the North Atlantic area.” (NATO, What is Article 5,  NATO Topics – NATO and the Scourge of Terrorism, accessed 24 November 2009, emphasis added)

An act of war by a foreign nation (Afghanistan) against a member of the Atlantic Alliance (the USA) was considered as an act of war against all members under NATO’s doctrine of collective security.

Under no stretch of the imagination, can the attack on the World Trade Center and Pentagon be categorized as an act of war by a foreign country. But nobody seemed to have raised this issue.

“Use of Armed Force” only “If It is Determined…”

There was an “if” in the September 12 resolution. Article 5 would apply only if it is determined that Afghanistan as a Nation State was complicit or behind the 9/11 attacks.

In practice, the “if” had already been waived prior to 9/11. The entire NATO arsenal was already on a war footing. In military terms, NATO and the US were already in an advanced state of readiness. Known to military analysts, but never revealed in the Western media, the implementation of a large scale theater war takes at least one year of advanced operational planning, prior to the launching of an invasion.

The use of article 5 of the Washington Treaty had in all likelihood been contemplated by military planners, as a pretext for waging war, prior to 9/11.

There was, however, no official declaration of war on September 12th. The Alliance waited until 3 days before the invasion to declare war on Afghanistan, an impoverished country which by no stretch of the imagination could have launched an attack against a member state of “The North Atlantic area”.

The September 12 resolution of the Atlantic Council required “determination” and corroborating evidence, that:

1) Al Qaeda led by Osama bin Laden with the support of a foreign power had ordered the “attack from abroad” on the United States of America;

2) The terrorist attacks of 9/11 constituted a bona fide military operation (under the provisions of Article 5) by an alleged foreign country (Afghanistan) against a NATO member state, and consequently against all NATO member states under the doctrine of collective security:

“Article 5 and the case of the terrorist attacks against the United States: The United States has been the object of brutal terrorist attacks. It immediately consulted with the other members of the Alliance. The Alliance determined that the US had been the object of an armed attack. The Alliance therefore agreed that if it was determined that this attack was directed from abroad, it would be regarded as covered by Article 5. NATO Secretary General, Lord Robertson, subsequently informed the Secretary-General of the United Nations of the Alliance’s decision.

Article 5 has thus been invoked, but no determination has yet been made whether the attack against the United States was directed from abroad. If such a determination is made, each Ally will then consider what assistance it should provide. In practice, there will be consultations among the Allies. Any collective action by NATO will be decided by the North Atlantic Council. The United States can also carry out independent actions, consistent with its rights and obligations under the UN Charter.

Allies can provide any form of assistance they deem necessary to respond to the situation. This assistance is not necessarily military and depends on the material resources of each country. Each individual member determines how it will contribute and will consult with the other members, bearing in mind that the ultimate aim is to “to restore and maintain the security of the North Atlantic area”.

By invoking Article 5, NATO members have shown their solidarity toward the United States and condemned, in the strongest possible way, the terrorist attacks against the United States on 11 September.

If the conditions are met for the application of Article 5, NATO Allies will decide how to assist the United States. (Many Allies have clearly offered emergency assistance). Each Ally is obliged to assist the United States by taking forward, individually and in concert with other Allies, such action as it deems necessary. This is an individual obligation on each Ally and each Ally is responsible for determining what it deems necessary in these particular circumstances.

No collective action will be taken by NATO until further consultations are held and further decisions are made by the the North Atlantic Council. (NATO, NATO Topics – NATO and the Scourge of Terrorism, accessed 24 November 2009, emphasis added)

The Mysterious Frank Taylor Report

The final decision to invoke Article 5 in relation to the 9/11 attacks came three weeks later upon the submission to the NATO Council of a mysterious classified report by a US State Department official named Frank Taylor. The report was submitted to NATO on October 2nd, 5 days before the commencement of the bombing and invasion of Afghanistan.

Frank Taylor was working in the US State Department. He had been entrusted with the writing of a brief to establish whether the US “had been attacked from abroad”, pursuant to the North Atlantic Council’s resolution of September 12 2001.

US Ambassador at Large and Co-ordinator for Counter-terrorism Frank Taylor briefed the North Atlantic Council on October 2nd, five days before the commencement of the bombings.

On October 2nd  he handed his brief to NATO “on the results of investigations into the 11 September attacks…. ” NATO – Topic: Terrorism, NATO and the fight against Terrorism, accessed 24 November 2009).

The classified report was not released to the media. And to this date, to our knowledge, it has remained classified.

NATO’s Secretary General Lord Robertson casually summarised the substance of the Frank Taylor report in a press release:

“This morning, the United States briefed the North Atlantic Council on the results of the investigation into who was responsible for the horrific terrorist attacks which took place on September 11.

The briefing was given by Ambassador Frank Taylor, the United States Department of State Coordinator for Counter-terrorism.

This morning’s briefing follows those offered by United States Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage and United States Deputy Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz, and illustrates the commitment of the United States to maintain close cooperation with Allies.

Today’s was classified briefing and so I cannot give you all the details.

Briefings are also being given directly by the United States to the Allies in their capitals.

The briefing addressed the events of September 11 themselves, the results of the investigation so far, what is known about Osama bin Laden and the al-Qaida organisation and their involvement in the attacks and in previous terrorist activity, and the links between al-Qaida and the Taliban regime in Afghanistan.

The facts are clear and compelling. The information presented points conclusively to an al-Qaida role in the September 11 attacks.

We know that the individuals who carried out these attacks were part of the world-wide terrorist network of al-Qaida, headed by Osama bin Laden and his key lieutenants and protected by the Taliban.

On the basis of this briefing, it has now been determined that the attack against the United States on September 11 was directed from abroad and shall therefore be regarded as an action covered by Article 5 of the Washington Treaty, which states that an armed attack on one or more of the Allies in Europe or North America shall be considered an attack against them all.

I want to reiterate that the United States of America can rely on the full support of its 18 NATO Allies in the campaign against terrorism.” (Lord Robertson, NATO Secretary General, statement to the NATO Council, State Department, Appendix H, Multinational Response to September 11 NATO Presshttp://www.state.gov/documents/organization/10313.pdf, accessed 24 November 2009, emphasis added)

In other words, 2 days before the actual commencement of the bombing campaign on October 7, the North Atlantic Council decided, based on the information provided by Frank Taylor to the Council  “that the attacks were directed from abroad” by Al Qaeda, headed by Osama bin Laden, thereby requiring an action on the part of NATO under Article 5 of the Washington Treaty ( NATO – Topic: Terrorism, NATO and the fight against Terrorism, accessed 24 November 2009):

NATO action under article 5, was outlined in an October 4 decision, 3 days before the commencement of the bombings.

Two days later, on 4 October, NATO agreed on eight measures in support the United States, which were tantamount to an illegal declaration of war on Afghanistan:

to enhance intelligence sharing and co-operation, both bilaterally and in appropriate NATO bodies, relating to the threats posed by terrorism and the actions to be taken against it;

to provide, individually or collectively, as appropriate and according to their capabilities,[military] assistance to Allies and other states which are or may be subject to increased terrorist threats as a result of their support for the campaign against terrorism;

to take necessary measures to provide increased security for facilities of the United States and other Allies on their territory;

to backfill selected Allied assets in NATO’s area of responsibility that are required to directly support operations against terrorism;

to provide blanket overflight clearances for the United States and other Allies’ aircraft, in accordance with the necessary air traffic arrangements and national procedures, for military flights related to operations against terrorism; to provide access for the United States and other Allies to ports and airfields on the territory of NATO nations for operations against terrorism, including for refuelling, in accordance with national procedures;

that the Alliance is ready to deploy elements of its Standing Naval Forces to the Eastern Mediterranean in order to provide a NATO presence and demonstrate resolve; and that the Alliance is similarly ready to deploy elements of its NATO Airborne Early Warning Force to support operations against terrorism. NATO – Topic: Terrorism, NATO and the fight against Terrorism, accessed 24 November 2009 emphasis added)

Press reports of Frank Taylor’s brief to the NATO Council were scanty. The invocation of Article 5, five days before the bombings commenced, was barely mentioned. The media consensus was: “all roads lead to Bin Laden” as if bin Laden was a Nation State which had attacked America.

What stands out are outright lies and fabrications. Moreover, prior to October 2nd, NATO had no pretext under Article 5 of the Washington Treaty to intervene militarily in Afghanistan.

The pretext was provided by Frank Taylor’s classified report, which was not made public.

The two UN Security Council resolutions adopted in the course of September 2001, did not, under any circumstances, provide a justification for the invasion and illegal occupation  of a UN member country of 28 million people. (see Security Council resolution 1368 (2001) Threats to international peace and security caused by terrorist acts,  Security Council resolution 1373 (2001) Threats to international peace and security caused by terrorist acts).

UNSC Resolution 1373 (2001) called for prevention and suppression of terrorist acts, as well suppression of the financing of terrorism:

“(e) Ensure that any person who participates in the financing, planning, preparation or perpetration of terrorist acts or in supporting terrorist acts is brought to justice and ensure that, in addition to any other measures against them, such terrorist acts are established as serious criminal offences in domestic laws and regulations and that the punishment duly reflects the seriousness of such terrorist acts;

“3. Calls upon all States to:

“(a) Find ways of intensifying and accelerating the exchange of operational information, especially regarding actions or movements of terrorist persons or networks; forged or falsified travel documents; traffic in arms, explosives or sensitive materials; use of communications technologies by terrorist groups; and the threat posed by the possession of weapons of mass destruction by terrorist groups;

“(b) Exchange information in accordance with international and domestic law and cooperate on administrative and judicial matters to prevent the commission of terrorist acts;

“(c) Cooperate, particularly through bilateral and multilateral arrangements and agreements, to prevent and suppress terrorist attacks and take action against perpetrators of such acts;

“4. Notes with concern the close connection between international terrorism and transnational organized crime, illicit drugs, money-laundering, illegal arms-trafficking, and illegal movement of nuclear, chemical, biological and other potentially deadly materials, and in this regard emphasizes the need to enhance coordination of efforts on national, subregional, regional and international levels in order to strengthen a global response to this serious challenge and threat to international security;

“5. Declares that acts, methods, and practices of terrorism are contrary to the purposes and principles of the United Nations and that knowingly financing, planning and inciting terrorist acts are also contrary to the purposes and principles of the United Nations (excerpts of UNSC Resolution 1373 (2001, See also UN Press Release SC 7178 SECURITY COUNCIL UNANIMOUSLY ADOPTS WIDE-RANGING ANTI-TERRORISM RESOLUTION; CALLS FOR SUPPRESSING FINANCING, IMPROVING INTERNATIONAL COOPERATION, Security Council, 4385th Meeting, September 2001)

Nowhere in this resolution is there any mention of military action against a UN member State.

The US led war on Afghanistan, using 9/11 as a pretext and a justification is illegal and criminal.

The US and NATO heads of state and heads of government from 2001 to the present are complicit in the launching of a criminal and illegal war.

The Big Lie: Al Qaeda Made in America

Amply documented but rarely mentioned by the mainstream media, Al Qaeda is a creation of the CIA going back to the Soviet- Afghan war. This was a known fact, corroborated by numerous sources including official documents of the US Congress, which the mainstream media chose to either dismiss or ignore. The intelligence community had time and again acknowledged that they had indeed supported Osama bin Laden, but that in the wake of the Cold War: “he turned against us”.

Both the 9/11 Commission Report as well as the Western media have largely upheld the “outside enemy” mythology, heralding Al Qaeda as the “mastermind” organization behind the 9/11 attacks. The official 9/11 narrative has not only distorted the causes underling the collapse of the World Trade Center buildings, it has also erased the historical record of US covert support to international terrorism, while creating the illusion that America and “Western Civilization” are threatened.

Without an “outside enemy”, there could be no “Global War on Terrorism”. The entire national security agenda would collapse “like a deck of cards”. The war criminals in high office would have no leg to stand on.

After 9/11, the campaign of media disinformation served not only to drown the truth but also to kill much of the historical evidence on how this illusive Al Qaeda “outside enemy” had been fabricated and transformed into “Enemy Number One”.

This is why a legal procedure directed against the actual perpetrators of 9/11 is absolutely essential.

History of Al Qaeda

Important to the understanding of 9/11, US intelligence is the unspoken architect of “Islamic terrorism” going back to the heyday of the Soviet-Afghan war.

Bin Laden was 22 years old and was trained in a CIA sponsored guerrilla training camp. Education in Afghanistan in the years preceding the Soviet-Afghan war was largely secular. With religious textbooks produced in Nebraska, the number of CIA sponsored religious schools (madrasahs) increased from 2,500 in 1980 to over 39,000.

“Advertisements, paid for from CIA funds, were placed in newspapers and newsletters around the world offering inducements and motivations to join the [Islamic] Jihad.” (Pervez Hoodbhoy, Peace Research, 1 May 2005)

 ”The United States spent millions of dollars to supply Afghan schoolchildren with textbooks filled with violent images and militant Islamic teachings….The primers, which were filled with talk of jihad and featured drawings of guns, bullets, soldiers and mines, have served since then as the Afghan school system’s core curriculum. Even the Taliban used the American-produced books,..”, (Washington Post, 23 March 2002)

Under the Reagan administration, US foreign policy evolved towards the unconditional support and endorsement of the Islamic “freedom fighters”. This endorsement has not in any way been modified.

In a twisted irony, throughout the post 911 era,  US intelligence in liaison with Britain’s MI6, an Israel’s Mossad, continues to provide covert support to the radical Islamist organization allegedly responsible for the 9/11 attacks. Al Qaeda and its various affiliated groups including the Libya Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG) and factions within the Free Syria Army (FSA) are directly supported by the US and NATO.

In a bitter irony, the US and its allies claim to be waging a “war on terrorism” against the alleged architects of 9/11, while also using Al Qaeda operatives as their foot-soldiers.

Iraq: Alleged State Sponsor of the 9/11 Attacks

The formulation of a war of retribution conducted in the name of 9/11 was not limited to Afghanistan.

 In the course of 2002, leading up to the invasion of Iraq in March 2003,  “Osama bin Laden” and “Weapons of Mass Destruction” statements circulated profusely in the news chain. While Washington’s official position was that Saddam Hussein was not behind the 9/11 attacks, insinuations abounded both in presidential speeches as well as in the Western media. According to Bush,  in an October 2002 press conference:

The threat comes from Iraq. It arises directly from the Iraqi regime’s own actions — its history of aggression, and its drive toward an arsenal of terror. .,..  We also must never forget the most vivid events of recent history. On September the 11th, 2001, America felt its vulnerability — even to threats that gather on the other side of the earth. We resolved then, and we are resolved today, to confront every threat, from any source [Iraq], that could bring sudden terror and suffering to America. President Bush Outlines Iraqi Threat, October 7, 2002)

Barely two weeks before the invasion of Iraq, September 11, 2001 was mentioned abundantly by president Bush. In the weeks leading up to the March invasion, 45 percent of  Americans believed Saddam Hussein was “personally involved” in the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks. (See . The impact of Bush linking 9/11 and Iraq / The Christian Science Monitor – CSMonitor.com, March 14, 2003)

Meanwhile, a new terrorist mastermind had emerged: Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi.

In Colin Powell’s historic address to the United Nations Security Council, in February 2003, detailed “documentation” on a sinister relationship between Saddam Hussein and Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi was presented, focussing on his ability to produce deadly chemical, biological and radiological weapons, with the full support and endorsement of the secular Baathist regime. The implication of Colin’s Powell’s assertions, which were totally fabricated, was that Saddam Hussein and an Al Qaeda affiliated organization had joined hands in the production of WMD in Northern Iraq and that the Hussein government was a “state sponsor” of terrorism.

The main thrust of the disinformation campaign continued in the wake of the March 2003 US-led invasion of Iraq. It consisted in presenting the Iraqi resistance movement as “terrorists”. The image of “terrorists opposed to democracy” fighting US “peacekeepers” appeared on television screens and news tabloids across the globe.

Iran: Condemned by a New York City Court for Supporting Al Qaeda in the 9/11 Attacks

In the wake of the Iraq invasion, the same alleged “state sponsorship” of terrorism accusations emerged in relation to Iran.

In December 2011, the Islamic Republic of Iran was condemned by a Manhattan court, for its alleged role in supporting Al Qaeda in the 9/11 attacks.

The investigation into Tehran’s alleged role was launched in 2004, pursuant to a recommendation of the 9/11 Commission “regarding an apparent link between Iran, Hezbollah, and the 9/11 hijackers”. The 9/11 Commission’s recommendation was that this “apparent link” required  “further investigation by the U.S. government.” (9/11 Commission Report , p. 241). (See Iran 911 Case ).

In the December 2011 court judgment (Havlish v. Iran)  “U.S. District Judge George B. Daniels ruled  that Iran and Hezbollah materially and directly supported al Qaeda in the September 11, 2001 attacks and are legally responsible for damages to hundreds of family members of 9/11 victims who are plaintiffs in the case”.

According to the plaintiffs attorneys “Iran, Hezbollah, and al Qaeda formed a terror alliance in the early 1990s. Citing their national security and intelligence experts, the attorneys explained “how the pragmatic terror leaders overcame the Sunni-Shi’a divide in order to confront the U.S. (the “Great Satan”) and Israel (the “Lesser Satan”)”. Iran and Hezbollah allegedly provided “training to members of al Qaeda in, among other things, the use of explosives to destroy large buildings.” (See Iran 911 Case ).

This judicial procedure is nothing more than another vicious weapon in the fabricated “War on Terror” to be used against another Muslim country, with a view to destabilizing Iran as well as justifying ongoing military threats. It also says a lot more about the people behind the lawsuit than about the accused. The expert witnesses who testified against Iran are very active in warmongering neocon circles. They belong to a web of architects of the 21st century Middle-Eastern wars, ranging from high profile propagandists to intelligence and military officers, including former U.S. officials.

But what makes this case absurd is that in September 2011, a few months before the judgment, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who has questioned the official 9/11 narrative, was accused by Al-Qaeda leaders of  “spreading conspiracy theories about the 9/11 attacks”. The semi-official media outlet of Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, insisted that al-Qaeda “had been behind the attacks and criticised the Iranian president for discrediting the terrorist group.” (See Julie Levesque, Iran Accused of being behind 9/11 Attacks. U.S. Court Judgment, December 2011 (Havlish v. Iran), Global Research,  May 11, 2012)

Al Qaeda: US-NATO Foot-soldiers

Ironically, while Washington accuses Afghanistan, Iraq and Iran of complicity in the 9/11 attacks, the historical record and evidence indelibly point to the “state sponsorship” of Al Qaeda by the CIA, MI6 and their intelligence counterparts in Pakistan, Qatar and Saudi Arabia.

Realities are turned upside down. Al Qaeda death squads have been recruited to wage America’s humanitarian wars throughout the Middle East an d North Africa.

In Syria Al Qaeda units were recruited by NATO and the Turkish High command:

“Also discussed in Brussels and Ankara, our sources report, is a campaign to enlist thousands of Muslim volunteers in Middle East countries and the Muslim world to fight alongside the Syrian rebels.” (http://www.debka.com/article/21255/  Debkafile, August 31, 2011).

In Libya, jihadists from Afghanistan trained by the CIA were dispatched to fight with the “pro-democracy” rebels under the helm of “former” Libya Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG) Commander Abdel Hakim Belhadj:

Western policy makers admit that NATO’s operations in Libya have played the primary role in emboldening Al Qaeda’s AQIM faction (Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb). The Fortune 500-funded Brookings Institution’s Bruce Riedel in his article, “The New Al Qaeda Menace,” admits that AQIM is now heavily armed thanks to NATO’s intervention in Libya, and that AQIM’s base in Mali, North Africa, serves as a staging ground for terrorist activities across the region. http://www.globalresearch.ca/al-qaeda-and-natos-pan-arab-terrorist-blitzkrieg/

“Crimes against Civilization”

9/11 mythology has been the mainstay of war propaganda, which in itself constitutes a criminal act under international law.

Fiction prevails over reality. For propaganda to be effective, public opinion must firmly endorse the official 9/11 narrative to the effect that Al Qaeda was behind the attacks. A well organized structure of media disinformation is required to reach this objective. Perpetuating the 9/11 Legend also requires defying as well smearing the 9/11 Truth Movement.

Throughout the post 9/11 era, a panoply of Al Qaeda related events and circumstances is presented to public opinion on a daily basis. These include terrorist threats, warnings and attacks, police investigations, insurgencies and counter-insurgencies, country-level regime change, social conflict, sectarian violence, racism, religious divisions, Islamic thought, Western values, etc.

Muslims are presented as the perpetrators of the 9/11, thereby unleashing a Worldwide demonization campaign.

In turn, 9/11, Al Qaeda – War on Terrorism rhetoric permeates political discourse at all levels of government, including bipartisan debate on Capitol Hill, in committees of the House and the Senate, at the British House of Commons, and, lest we forget, at the United Nations Security Council. All these various bodies are complicit in a criminal project.

September 11 and Al Qaeda concepts, repeated ad nauseam have potentially traumatic impacts on the human mind and the ability of normal human beings to analyze and comprehend the “real outside World” of war, politics and the economic crisis.

What is at stake is human consciousness and comprehension based on concepts and facts.

With September 11 there are no verifiable “facts” and “concepts”, because 9/11 as well as Al Qaeda have evolved into a media mythology, a legend, an invented ideological construct, used as an unsubtle tool of war propaganda.

Al Qaeda constitutes a stylized, fake and almost folkloric abstraction of terrorism, which permeates the inner consciousness of millions of people around the World.

Reference to Al Qaeda has become a dogma, a belief, which most people espouse unconditionally. According to the media, “Muslims were behind the attacks”,  thereby justifying a war of retribution against Muslim countries. 

Racism and Islamophobia are an integral part of war propaganda.

Is this political indoctrination? Is it brain-washing? If so what is the underlying objective?

People’s capacity to independently analyse World events, as well as address causal relationships pertaining to politics and society, is significantly impaired. That is the objective!

The routine use of  9/11 and Al Qaeda to generate blanket explanations of complex political events is meant to create confusion.

It prevents people from thinking. It strikes at the core of human values. In a sense, it destroys civilization. 

All of these complex Al Qaeda related occurrences are explained by politicians, the corporate media, Hollywood and the Washington think tanks under a single blanket “bad guys” heading, in which Al Qaeda is casually and repeatedly pinpointed as “the cause” of numerous terror events around the World.

The criminality underlying post 9/11 propaganda is of much broader nature, affecting people’s mindsets, redefining fundamental social, political and institutional relations. 

“Crimes against Civilization” have been committed.

9/11 mythology precipitates the World into barbarity.

the real Syrian Free Press


Leaders of military units on Friday promised the Syrian people and President Bashar al-Assad to remain in a state of high preparedness to defend the homeland and preserve its security and stability regardless of the challenges and terrorism.

The leaders’ promise was made during the Armed Forces’ celebration of the 42nd anniversary of the glorious Correctionist Movement which constituted a historic turning point in the course of the Syrian people’s march and drew a new path for the modern Syrian state through having made a strong ideologized army that has revealed Syria’s importance and capabilities.

In their speech, the military leaders highlighted the great achievements of the Correctionist Movement, which was led by late president Hafez al-Assad, and the outcomes it came up with across the political and social map of the homeland.

The most prominent of those achievements were those made on the level of the Armed Forces…

Escaping  from the spider swirls of media -getting informed

Why Syria?

“ The history boldly favors every aggressor on the land of Muslims and the International forces – imperialism and war – have profoundly affected the Syrian state”.
There is nothing unusual in the secret deals of the current and previous Arab regimes (Al Saud, Qatar, Jordan, Egypt Hosni Mubarak, Tunisia Zine El Abidine etc. ..) with Israel ,the exception being the Syrian regime, where nor late immortal Hafez al-Assad or actual president Bashar al Assad did not sign an agreement to surrender and did not shake hands with Israelis, but marked the history in Tshreen war or fevered Arabism of Lebanon!In Syria those who do business with the Zionist usurper is punished and it remains the only country where the Israeli products do not have access ! Syria was the only entity keeping Israel at bay and they try to destroy it !Who are they?
The rulers of the Gulf- among others- that allowed Israel to exist and expand and flourish and standing as an impasse regarding any attempt at liberating Palestine ,the state of Qatar which is supporting terrorism, sectarianism and sedition against Syria along with Saudi Arabia and Turkey are enabling terrorists, sedition mercenaries and covert operatives to destroy secular Syria.

The division of Muslims has its roots in an age-old rivalry between those who believed the Prophet Muhammad’s (pbuh)successors should be selected from among his faithful companions (Sunni) and those who believed that Muslims should be led by members of the Prophet’s family (Shia), the issue is essentially a political one — the Sunni and Shia share the most fundamental Islamic beliefs and the Cora’n is the Holy book!
The fight over succession ended centuries ago, but this issue has reared its head in the past few decades with the kind of political cynicism that shows the real divide — with the exception of small groupings of hardcore fundamentalists — is between political “worldviews” more than religious tradition as the Wahhabi brand of Islam was introduced not by Muslim Scholars, rather by the British MI6 in early 19th century in the desert of Arabia.

But now days we witness the spread of a “culture” of Al Saud and of Salafi circulating in the region, facilitating the lying prosecutors and the spin in the media of the “Arabs” targeting the Alawis and others, as the Aljzeera and Alarabya and newspapers as Alhayat and “Middle East ” are a good example, on how they would be when the alliance of the” culture “of Saud with “neo-liberal “wild West strives to bolt a new Middle East?!
“I pray to Allah that among their offspring will be those who worship Allah”-saying of The Prophet (PBUH)
Sermons Sh.M.Saeed Ramadan al-Bouti
Mawlid Khutba Fiqh of Minorities
All praise is due to Allah, praise that complies with His blessings and compensates His abundance. Our Lord, for You is all praise as befits the majesty of Your countenance and the might of Your authority.
O Allah, I cannot sufficiently enumerate praises upon You; You are as you have praised Your self. I bear witness that there is no god but Allah alone and He has no partner, and I bear witness that our Master Muhammad is His slave and Messenger and His sincere and intimate friend, the best Prophet that Allah sent to the entire world as a herald of glad tidings and admonition. O Allah, pray upon, give peace and give blessings upon our Master Muhammad and upon the family of our Master Muhammad, prayers and peace that last inseparably until the Day of Judgement. I advise you and my sinning self to have fearful awareness of Allah the Exalted.
To proceed, O slaves of Allah:
It has been authentically related from our Beloved Mustafa that he said: ‘None of you will truly have faith until Allah and His Messenger are more beloved to one than anything else.’ He also said: ‘None of you will truly have faith until I am more beloved to him than his wealth, his children and his own self that is between his two sides.’
Creating and dispersing fundamentalists in the Arab World under Imperialist directions
Why Syria?
Needless to explain to talk about the strategic geopolitical location as has become known in the Levant or “Syria” in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries was a geographic entity, known at various times as “Greater Syria,”“Geographical Syria” or “Natural Syria.” which included the current Syria Lebanon, Palestine, Jordan and a large part of Iraq (there are some who include the whole Iraq for this geographical unit) This area has always been the center focus of competition between colonial powers at different periods in history .. related here: the Western colonialism (French or English) at the beginning of the twentieth century. After the defeat of Turkey in the First World War on May 16, 1916, in the middle of World War I, Paris and London approved a secret agreement to dismember he Ottoman Empire and divide the Middle East between themselves.

The Sykes-Picot agreement set new boundaries for many countries in the region, and began a period of direct control of the Middle East that the West has sought to perpetuate to the present. , the English and French shared the Arab region after it reneged on their promises to the Arabs to recognize the major Arab state (Hijaz and the Levant and Iraq) and they occupy this country under the pretext of a Mandate and claiming that the Arabs were not yet ready to govern themselves. .. The plan Sykes – Picot was ready to divide or The Natural Syria because by keeping it united it would have allowed a stronger state in the future which would have threaten the interests of these countries in the region so a boundary was drawn roughly halfway across Syria from east to west, dividing the Syrian rectangle into two parts. The southern part, called Palestine, was assigned to Great Britain; the northern part, called Syria and Lebanon, was assigned to France. The southern part was further subdivided into Palestine, to the west, and Transjordan — an entirely new name — to the east of the River Jordan. Syria was subdivided into five parts: Lebanon, including as its principal towns Tripoli, Beirut, Sidon and Tyre; the Cilicia and later the Iskandarun area was assigned to the Ottomans and the state of Syria, with the main towns of Aleppo, Hama, Homs and Damascus; the mountainous region of the Jabal al-Druze, with Swaida as the principal town; the Sanjak of Latakia, with Latakia as its principal town; and the Sanjak of Alexandretta,Aqttawa Mosul area in eastern Syria was annexed to Iraq, under the tutelage of British – and put the remaining of Syria (namely current Syria ) under the French mandate. The formulation of a postwar settlement for the Middle East was agreed upon at the San Remo Conference in April 1920. The former Ottoman provinces were divided into entities called mandates. The new mandates were awarded conditionally and under the supervision of an outside authority, the League of Nations. Over the next decade, the populations of these territories were arbitrarily and artificially divided. The mandatory powers, Britain and France, delineated new desert frontiers and communal boundaries. In Syria, the French went further, creating semi-autonomous local states within a national polity .and as it wasn’t enough they tried to split the remaining of them on the religious and sectarian basis as regionally: the state Aleppo in the north ; the State of Damascus in the center and south; and Alawites state on the coast and the Druze state in the south .. 
Fortunately they could not succeed because of the awareness of the Syrians and their struggle for the unity of their homeland and against French colonists which was shown in the Revolution burst characterized in four areas: in the south ( Druze areas ) led Sultan Pasha al-Atrash – in the Sahel ( coastal areas) led by Sheikh Saleh Ali – in the north led by Ibrahim Hanano (Idleb areas and Sunni Aleppo) – In Damascus and Gottha (Sunni areas) which has resulted in the Syrian national victory over the French colonists .Syria gained independence in 1946 and it was yet to know as the Syrian Arab Republic.
Al-‘Azmah graduated from the Ottoman Military Academy in 1906. He joined the Arab revolt against the Ottomans which gave Syria its independence in 1918.
As planned in the secret Sykes-Picot Agreement the French General Gouraud issued an ultimatum to the Syrian government in 1920 to disband its troops and submit to French control. The government of Damascus submitted reluctantly to the French ultimatum and disbanded its troops. But Yusuf al-‘Azmah refused to give in. He raised a small body of disbanded troops and civilians, poorly armed relative to the modern, well-equipped professional French Army. Although he had no illusions about the outcome of the battle, al-‘Azmah wanted to make it clear that Syria would not surrender without fighting!
Sultan Al Atrash fought the Turks with his father and other men of the Djebel in their revolt against the Turks. Then, in 5/3/1911, Thoukan was hanged by the Turks in Public Square in Damascus (al-Marja). Later, in 1916, the Great Arab Revolution against the Turks was commanded by Sharif Hussein of Mecqua. Sultan participated in this Revolution, and was the first to enter Damascus with his men, after the battle of “Tilal al-Manea”, near Damascus, and the first to raise the Arab flag on the top of Government building in Damascus (Saraya). This flag was made by the women in the family of Sultan Al-Atrash.
In Mayssaloun, Sultan wanted to help Youssef al-Azma, he went to Braq, in the south of Damascus, but it was too late: the French entered Damascus on 24 of July 1920. In order to dominate the people, the French divided Syria into separated states, according to our religions communities. Sultan Pasha Al-Atrash refused these states and reclaimed the reunification of Syria.
Ibrahim Hanano, the leader of the rebellion in the north of Syria, came to Djebel al-Arab to be protected by Sultan Al-Atrash.
-In 1922, and during 9 months, Sultan commanded his first revolution and the battle of “Tal al-Hadid” in Souweida. The aim of this revolution was to unify the Syrian regions in one independent Nation, and her slogan was: “Religion is for God, the Nation is for all of us”. So the secularism objective was very clear in this revolution. But the French Mandate was against secularism in Syria, because it divided Syria into religions communities’ states!
The Arab Nationalism and its specific in Syria
It is not difficult to note that Syria was the only one of the occupied Arab states which was divided in this way: they kept Egypt, Sudan, Libya, Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia, and to a lesser extent Iraq on a very large geographical scales. Hence the division of Syria to small states and planting the Zionist entity in Palestine would have a heavily psychological impact on the Syrian people and will determine the political orientations of the most Syrian parties to adopt slogans of nationalism and unionism slogans (the most important of these parties: Baath Arab Socialist Party and the Syrian Socialist National Party) as well as the communist oriented parties tendency. Syria has kept the hope of unity (not only in Syria, but the in whole Arab World) in the conscience of every Syrian citizen .. Arab nationalism is a nationalist ideology celebrating the glories of Arab civilization, the language and literature of the Arabs, calling for rejuvenation and political union in the Arab world as .one nation bound together by common linguistic, cultural, religious, and historical heritage ,was formed through the gradual establishment of Arabic as the language of communication . Both Arabic and Islam served as the pillars of the nation. A stranger could easily observe that Syria is the only Arab state which incorporates in its name in the word “Arab” before “Syrian”, where the others accepted Israel as the dominant power in the Arab region and some Arabs are just “money”,”investment” & oil, slaves and satellites rotating in the Israeli orbit .
After 1967 the power of the Islamic movements greatly increased, the West favored Israel and the Arabs who accepted to deal with the Zionist entity as Saudi Arabia and Qatar. This third phase of Western-Islamic relations began when factions of this predominantly Fundamentalist Islamic movement began to exercise their new political influence throughout areas of the Muslim world. Sadat and Faisal and less portentous acts didn’t interrupt Western and Arab client regimes’ support for Islamic movements, and Saudi Arabia and Egypt allowed pro-Islamic use of their state propaganda apparatus… And Israel, forever inclined to back divisive movements, surfaced as another supporter of Islam and began to fund the Muslim Brotherhood .
The Islamic movements moved to assume the political leadership of the masses of Arab Middle East. One exception was standing in their way: the President of Syria:Hafez al Assad,the only president of an Arab country who was not installed by the CIA and and who refused to obey and integrate in their plan. 

Copeland interviewed in 1969,was reflecting ruefully on the disaster they had created in Syria. His is the voice of a generation of Americans who had tried to intervene to bring democracy to the Middle East – not just in Syria but later in Iran and in Nasser’s Egypt.

The “Game” he refers to is a management game-playing exercise the CIA did in the 1950s when planning the interventions. It’s aim was to predict how all the “players” in the country would behave,but the predictions were wrong!Za’im promised the Americans he would throw all the corrupt politicians in jail, reform the country, recognize the new state of Israel, and then bring in proper democracy. All the Americans were convinced that it was a brilliant plan – except for one man, a young political officer called Deane Hinton. Copeland describes a moment when they were out in Damascus planning the coup when Hinton turned to the rest of the group and said:”I want to go on record as saying that this is the stupidest, most irresponsible action a diplomatic mission like ours could get itself involved in, and that we’ve started a series of these things that will never end.” ( Deane Hinton, Political officer, US Embassy in Syria, 1947. Hinton had been right,speaking to the American CIA which had “opened the door to the Dark Ages” in Syria back then). The “Game” is a management game-playing exercise the CIA did in the 1950s when planning the interventions, when most of the Syrian people were terrified of America, not just because of the interventions and the coup, but also because of their support for Israel so they have turned to the Soviets as a message to America. They also see Israel as America’s agent.
In 1963 in Syria,the favorite gag “joke” was that the coup will only happen when the western media arrive. In that:the plotters are waiting for the Panorama reporter to turn up because they know that coup will not be real until it is reported by the West. It is an early example of the techno-orientalism that is being repeated today in the media’s firm belief that it is the western social media networks that made possible the rebellions in Tunisia and Egypt. In 1963,while in Iraq another CIA coup was harvesting the results,the Syrian Ba’thists weren’t going to be outclassed. A month later they mounted their coup, and this time without the CIA’s help:Hafez al-Assad was one of the leaders. His plan for in Syria was to overcome the sectarianism that had always riven the Arab world, to create a secular society in which everyone was included!The hatred was deep because when the French ruled the country as in the Ottoman period too,they had practiced a program of divide and rule which deliberately fomented and exaggerated the sectarian divisions in the country .Of course the a Syrian patriotic ruler which refused to be an actor in Western scenarios could not be seen as a good sign in the Zionist circles and a secular Syria became that obstacle .
Secularism is “a political concept which requires a separation between civil the society and the political society, where the state does not exercise any authority of the religious and the churches do not exercise any political authority “where the “religion is for God and the homeland for all “…… about secularism in the Middle East, Ali Abdel Razek, a scholar of Islamic law, a judge and the author of “Islam and governance” in 1925, stated it for the first time in Islamic history that nothing in the texts of the Holy Islamic books contradicts it but is required that Muslims can choose a political system that suits them …… This book has caused controversy, and was blamed by extremists in Islam , especially by the Wahabis and those who dream about the revival of Ottomans .
The secular state is prevailing today in the civilized world ,thou the religious state exists and constitute the hard core of extreme Islamists ‘ project (exception:the only religious state in Europe:Vatican)
Secularists and religious minorities are exposed ,in the Middle East, to Salafist extremism and growing conservatism .Secret American,French and British teams work on deepening the conflicts! The creation of P2OG and would launch secret operations aimed at “stimulating reactions” among terrorists and states possessing weapons of mass destruction, meaning it would prod terrorist cells into action, thus exposing them to “quick-response” attacks by US forces. The means by which it would do this is the far greater use of special operations forces. The model that AKP party’s leaders wanted the Arab and Muslim worlds to follow is on the verge of collapsing. The doctrinal rhetoric of those leaders has basically become a reference for most of the radical movements in the Muslim world. The media is used as a terrific weapon and as everyone can observe,the the media war these days is concentrated on a lie”the Alawite regime” ,a sectarian idea used as planed by all biased media and totally ignoring the horrible crimes committed by different armed groups ,where the victims belong to all religious communities in Syria because everyone opposing the “game” became a target in order to pursue the Zionist plan!That plan who created Israel ,where in a farce , many countries worldwide would view Israel as a democracy, if not as the only democracy in this part of the world! Democracy is ,however, inseparable from people’s free choice throughout history. Was Israel democratically established and built as any other country worldwide? Israel was established on the blood and bones of innocent civilians in Palestine. Its founders made no elections as to get voted in from Diaspora to Palestine! Any way, what follows the Israeli usurpation of Palestine was a history of killings, assassinations, expulsions and the like. The so called prefabricated garrison state was there; yet it rejects to state definite borders, constitutions… It even acts and deals differently with its Jews, Ashkenazi or Sephardim. If so, how would Israel respect non-Jews mere existence and presence? Actually labeling Israel as a democracy is but the very humiliation for what real democracy is! But they target the Muslim sect and poison Muslims ‘minds .

Secular modern Syria
In August 2008 The Grand Mufti of Syria, Ahmad Badr El Din El Hassoun, has invited Benedict XVI to visit his country on the occasion of the Pauline Year.
At a meeting in Damascus with a group of journalists participating in a tutorial organized by the Opera Romana Pilgrimages to follow in the footsteps of the Apostle and held at the invitation of the Syrian Ministry of Tourism, the highest Sunni Muslim Syria has relaunched the dialogue Christian-Muslim view of world peace. On 15 January in Strasbourg, speaking in front of MEPs met in formal session.
The Grand Mufti had spoken of the need for a fruitful intercultural dialogue in view of the peaceful coexistence of peoples from the common foundations of different religions, because “the culture of the spirit, whether Christian or Muslim, gives humanity its moral dimension.” He also said that we should create a large zone in the Mediterranean without weapons or drugs, without war, without fundamentalism.
Now,in 2012 the fear of fundamentalism was proven as founded : the winds that blow on Damascus from neighboring countries threaten the Christian minority and the Syrian wish ,being the biggest challenge is the uncertainty, despite the general desire of a secular state.


Syria, a land of history and ancient civilization, the cradle of monotheistic religions where you feel the scan along the history, where every grain smells of old civilizations and religions, where it reflects the proud history and human creativity. Here it was created the first alphabet, the first library, agriculture and irrigation systems thousands of years ago. Syria has a strategic geographical position as a crossroads of three continents, Asia, Africa and Europe, this position made Syria a meeting, here intertwined trade caravans, those of the Silk arrived from China and away from the extremes of ‘Europe. Meetings with the theater were markets and palaces of the major Syrian cities, Damascus, Aleppo, Tadmur (Palmyra), Bosra, Rasafa, where he made a continuous exchange of cultures that transformed Syria into a land of hospitality handed down from one generation to the next .
The capital of Syria is Damascus, the oldest inhabited city, was named on the tablets of Ebla in the third millennium BC and grew up in the era Aramaic became a great kingdom. It was one of the top ten Roman cities in the east and  reached the height of its glory when it was chosen in the seventh century capital of the first Islamic state, the Umayyad state. Thus turned into the land of science and Islamic culture. It was erected in the center of the city the Umayyad Mosque, one of the oldest and largest in the history of ‘Islam. In the prayer hall is the shrine of the head of John the Baptist. The mosque was visited in 2002 by Pope John Paul ll, was the first visit of a Pope to a mosque during which he met with Muslim and Christian in an example of brotherhood and dialogue between religions. On that occasion, the Pope spoke these words: “The dialogue between religions is more effective if the experience of daily living in the same civilization. Christians and Muslims lived side by side for centuries in Syria, the other maintaining a constant and rich dialogue of life . ”

In a sermon at the prayers, imam Walid Abdel Haq called on Syrians to “stop quarreling because you are all brothers”.
“Do you not see what has been happening for two years in the country, the destruction and death? Stop this,” he said.
“Syrians must return to God to defeat this sectarian discord that they are trying to create in Syria. We must ourselves create a new Middle East and not the one trying to be imposed … by the enemies of Islam and of Syria.”
But Syria is unique… Muslim Sheikhs go to church to congratulate the priests in Christmas or Eastern holy days and they are being congratulated in Eid’s or participate in the funeral of a priest…

At the Grand Mosque , Damascus Influential traditional scholar Muhammed Saeed Ramadhan Bouti proves that Islam has nothing to do with Terrorists or terrorism.
Incitement and sectarian killing ordered by “screen sheiks”
All materials which were published on sites like “Wikipedia” have suffered modifications in order to sustain the devilish campaign which targets the Syrians and their history .The majority of Western or Gulf’s channels air long speeches of “screen sheikhs” like Youssef Karadaoui whose ex-wife reveled that her husband has relationships with Mossad and that Qatar uses him as preacher in the USA/Zionst plan to control the Arab world ,being a fluent speaker of Hebrew . Some Arab Intelligence reports had already reveled some secret Youssef Al-Karadaoui’s past visits in Israel and also some meetings (secret discussions) in 2009 in Doha Qatar’s capital as the principal reason of her divorce.

Christians and Muslims in Damascus

An irregular succession of churches and mosques distinguishes the predominantly Christian neighborhood of Damascus. Is there to lose their heads want to count the variety of Christian rites that here you can find Greek-Orthodox and Greek-Catholic, Syrian Orthodox and Syrian Catholic, Maronite, Chaldean, Armenian Catholic and Armenian Orthodox. And a little ‘further, the Latin.
The neighborhood of Damascus, which extends through the two gates of Bab Tuma and Bab Sharqi, is a pot -pourri of churches and mosques. This must not be misleading as to the numerical presence of Christians in a country where the vast majority of the population is Muslim. “There are no official statistics” – he says a deacon of the church Syrio-Catholic-“but the Christian presence in Syria should be around six percent.”
And what about the government’s policy: “In Syria there is freedom of worship it is certainly is the most quiet of the area.” Here in Damascus, to ask for relations between Christians and Muslims to the people on the street, one is astonished by the answers tolerant. “We are all Syrians. Then everyone has their own god.” Whether it’s a response “window dressing” or not, but one gets the impression that, because they have a history which stretches over thousands of years in many cultures and religions, the Syrians have a good experience in the difficult field of coexistence among different religions.
It ‘ s a matter of perspective. The cradle of Christianity is here, in these areas. It ‘logical to think that a Syrian there is no contradiction between belonging to their country and at the same time the Christian religion. In Damascus …there is the first church in history, namely the Church of Ananias, who baptized and cured St. Paul when he arrived in Damascus.And near the house of Ananias, inside the door of Bab Kisan, is preserved the memory of the escape from the walls of the holy city, hidden in a basket to escape the Roman legionaries.
And of memories biblical there is more than one. On a mountain in the city, called Arba’yyn Jabal (Mount of forty), there is a small mosque that stands exactly for the presence of forty mihrab (the niche in the wall indicating the direction of prayer), but that is famous mainly because inside is the rock where Cain had killed Abel.
A half hour from Damascus, in the village of Ma’alula, people still speak the ancient language of Aramaic, which is the language of Jesus’ a country with a Christian majority, where some caves to preserve the memory of the miracle of St. Tecla. For some ‘time the Syrian government has worked hard for the protection of this language, the real “archaeological living” in the history of languages.
The policy of the government in power is the other important factor that balances the balance of coexistence between communities. In modern Syria, the extremist Islamist oriented parties have never had space I have often been remarked that the president or other government officials will never be lacking to make presence at the most important Christian holidays.
Extremists created by West calling themselves Muslims

See the present,when the Middle East they aspire to and which is based on submission, humiliation and on depriving peoples of their identities and their rights, and it has become an illusion .Everyone knows now that the plan was prepared in advance and many wrote about the fact that this plan, of the war, has been set years before. That’s what extremist fundamentalism has brought in Syria that Wahabi trend who infests the Middle East,an controversial ideology since its roots,as Ibn ʿAbd al-Wahhab was criticised for disregarding Islamic history, monuments, traditions and the sanctity of Muslim life.His own brother, Sulayman, was particularly critical, claiming he was ill-educated and intolerant, classing Ibn ʿAbd al-Wahhab’s views as fringe and fanatical. Sulayman ibn ʿAbd al-Wahhab also suggested his brother was selective with the juristic predecessors, to the point of being ignorantly dismissive towards some and treating others as divinely infallible. Both Sulayman and Ibn Humaydi (the Hanbali mufti in Mecca) suggested Ibn ʿAbd al-Wahhab was even selective with the works of Ibn Taymiyyah, whose views otherwise closely influenced the Salafi. His brother Salman Ibn Abd al-Wahhab,and a Chief justice of Mekka,wrote a book in refutation of his brothers’ new teachings, called: “The Final Word from the Qur’an, the Hadith, and the Sayings of the Scholars Concerning the School of Ibn `Abd al-Wahhab”, also known as: “Al-Sawa`iq al-Ilahiyya fi Madhhab al-Wahhabiyya” (“The Divine Thunderbolts Concerning the Wahhabi School”). In “The Refutation of Wahhabism in Arabic Sources, 1745–1932”.

An Iraqi Mukhabarat (General Military Intelligence Directorate) Top Secret report, “The Emergence of Wahhabism and its Historical Roots,” dated September 2002 and released on March 13, 2008, by the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency in translated English form, points to the Dönmeh roots of the founder of the Saudi Wahhabi sect of Islam, Muhammad ibn Abdul Wahhab. Much of the information is gleaned from the memoirs of a “Mr. Humfer,” (as spelled in the DIA report, “Mr. Hempher” as spelled the historical record) a British spy who used the name “Mohammad,” claimed to be an Azeri who spoke Turkish, Persian, and Arabic and who made contact with Wahhab in the mid-18th century with a view of creating a sect of Islam that would eventually bring about an Arab revolt against the Ottomans and pave the way for the introduction of a Jewish state in Palestine. Humfer’s memoirs are recounted by the Ottoman writer and admiral Ayyub Sabri Pasha in his 1888 work, “The Beginning and Spreading of Wahhabism.”
In his book, The Dönmeh Jews, D. Mustafa Turan writes that Wahhab’s grandfather, Tjen Sulayman, was actually Tjen Shulman, a member of the Jewish community of Basra, Iraq. The Iraqi intelligence report also states that in his book, The Dönmeh Jews and the Origin of the Saudi Wahhabis, Rifat Salim Kabar reveals that Shulman eventually settled in the Hejaz, in the village of al-Ayniyah what is now Saudi Arabia, where his grandson founded the Wahhabi sect of Islam. The Iraqi intelligence report states that Shulman had been banished from Damascus, Cairo, and Mecca for his “quackery.” In the village, Shulman sired Abdul Wahhab. Abdel Wahhab’s son, Muhammad, founded modern Wahhabism.
The Iraqi report also makes some astounding claims about the Saud family. It cites Abdul Wahhab Ibrahim al-Shammari’s book, The Wahhabi Movement: The Truth and Roots, which states that King Abdul Aziz Ibn Saud, the first Kingdom of Saudi Arabia monarch, was descended from Mordechai bin Ibrahim bin Moishe, a Jewish merchant also from Basra. In Nejd, Moishe joined the Aniza tribe and changed his name to Markhan bin Ibrahim bin Musa. Eventually, Mordechai married off his son, Jack Dan, who became Al-Qarn, to a woman from the Anzah tribe of the Nejd. From this union, the future Saud family was born.
The Iraqi intelligence document reveals that the researcher Mohammad Sakher was the subject of a Saudi contract murder hit for his examination into the Sauds’ Jewish roots. In Said Nasir’s book, The History of the Saud Family, it is maintained that in 1943, the Saudi ambassador to Egypt, Abdullah bin Ibrahim al Muffadal, paid Muhammad al Tamami to forge a family tree showing that the Sauds and Wahhabs were one family that descended directly from the Prophet Mohammed.
At the outset of World War I, a Jewish British officer from India, David Shakespeare, met with Ibn Saud in Riyadh and later led a Saudi army that defeated a tribe opposed to Ibn Saud. In 1915, Ibn Saud met with the British envoy to the Gulf region, Bracey Cocas. Cocas made the following offer to Ibn Saud: “I think this is a guarantee for your endurance as it is in the interest of Britain that the Jews have a homeland and existence, and Britain’s interests are, by all means, in your interest.” Ibn Saud, the descendant of Dönmeh from Basra, responded: “Yes, if my acknowledge means so much to you, I acknowledge thousand times granting a homeland to the Jews in Palestine or other than Palestine.” Two years later, British Foreign Secretary Lord Balfour, in a letter to Baron Walter Rothschild, a leader of the British Zionists, stated: “His Majesty’s government view with favor the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people . . .” The deal had the tacit backing of two of the major players in the region, both descendant from Dönmeh Jews who supported the Zionist cause, Kemal Ataturk and Ibn Saud. The present situation in the Middle East should be seen in this light but the history of the region has been purged by certain religious and political interests for obvious reasons.
After World War I, the British facilitated the coming to power of the Saud regime in the former Hejaz and Nejd provinces of the Ottoman Empire. The Sauds established Wahhabism as the state religion of the new Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and, like the Kemalist Dönmeh in Turkey, began to move against other Islamic beliefs and sects, including the Sunnis and Shi’as. The Wahhabi Sauds accomplished what the Kemalist Dönmeh were able to achieve in Turkey: a fractured Middle East that was ripe for Western imperialistic designs and laid the groundwork for the creation of the Zionist state of Israel.
In the early ’50ies CIA began to cooperate with the Muslim Brotherhood, the Muslim mass organization founded in Egypt but with followers throughout the Arab Middle East… This signaled the beginning of an alliance between the traditional regimes and mass Islamic movements ,following the example of British Intelligence and sought to use Islam to further its goal.
The first was the period during which Britain used Islam to help legitimize the puppet dictators that they had installed over their Arab colonies after World War I. The second phase was a period during which Britain and America used militant Islam as a force to help topple governments that were trying to fight Western domination.
Western support for extremists of Islam was provided openly and accepted by the leadership of the Islamic movements without reservation.” Washington directly and indirectly condones the Saudi view by arming, financing and defending groups and governments leading to rising sectarian violence and tension as the Islamists movements, to undermine Islam. The Muslim Brotherhood has acted as a clever technique to recruit agent-provocateurs . The lowest ranks may sincerely believe they are defending Islam, and confronting “Western imperialism”. However, these various terrorist groups through representing different factions, are part of a single network serving the same division and the sectarian cause!In the past two years,their “Arab spring” brought feeds extortion , exposing civilians to criminals and extremists and sectarianism is also mounting.
Syria blocking Israeli ambitions even though Israel’s mouth waters for oil and Israel wants to get hold of Arab oil is why Syria is standing almost alone in the face of such ambitions.

International forces – imperialism and war – have profoundly shaped the Syrian state. Imperialism’s frustration of its identity set Syria on a radical Arab nationalist tangent while the resulting wars, notably those of 1967,
1973 and the struggle with Israel in Lebanon, led to the construction of a national security state. Seale’s two classic books illustrate the changing nexus between inside and out admirably: in the first, Syria was a weak state, destabilized and radicalized by the external ‘struggle for Syria;’ in the second, he pictures Syria in the realist caution set by Hafez al Assad through the 1967 war,who shaped the stable administration needed to conduct a ‘realist’ struggle with Israel and ‘for the Middle East’.Syria manifestly did have powerful grievances and faced real, not invented,external threats that its people expected the state to counter. The powerful impact of the external environment on domestic politics seems underlined by developments under Bashar al-Asad. He adopted a hard line toward Israel amidst the al-Aqsa intifadah and opposed the US invasion of Iraq; this, in arousing intense American hostility, soured the international environment for his economic reforms and where the Hariri affair, a product of the struggle for Lebanon was meant to obstruct the adhesion to the Euro-med partnership that Syrian reformers expected would give them leverage over entrenched anti-reform interests. The ongoing consequences of external forces are set to continue powerfully impacting Syria, with the renewed struggle for Lebanon between Syrian and US/Saudi proxies and an intensely sponsored and media supported Salafi, Taliban-like regime to replace the actual with extensive Saudi support without it being at all reflective of Syrian society, or even most of its Sunni community,a segment of the Syrian population who has contradicted the expectation of the Western warmongers and who has demonstrated what Syria is and fights for: a continue fight against Zionism and extremism ,a secular state who can not accept the seeds of sedition and sectarian lies.

A crucial objective of the U.S. policy in the years since the October war is the objective promised Israel by this U.S. policy, namely not to allow the Arabs another victory over Israel. This is why this policy has sought to keep the Arab reality unchanged, especially since Egypt shifted to the fold hostile to the Arab nation, and to keep the Arabs preoccupied with marginal issues totally unconnected with the crucial struggle against the Zionist enemy’s occupation of the Arab territories. Despite all this, Israel has not been able to achieve prominent victories with its aggression against the Arabs on front front,instead the entity managed to infiltrate the Gulf economies and use those money to fund its interests . Israel’s aggression has brought upon it repeated defeats since the 1973 war and through the war of attrition on the Syrian front which lasted nearly 70 days and the 1982 Lebanon war and its destructive subsequent effects on the Zionist presence in its entirety-as we can observe -all Syria related. This is what Kissinger once said to the Syrian leader :”Thank God, Mr President, that you are not the president of a European superpower, for you would have the United State’s head spinning.”I have two things to add to Kissinger’s remarks about intelligence and spinning heads. And he was terrifying his Zionists enemies !Since then they have started a campaign in order to demonize him through the sect he belonged as a Muslim! And not only a campaign against him but against what he has created: a powerful army which gives nightmares to the Zionist Israel .He used to be on the side of the common folk rather than the elite. His elite was the common man and his worry were the common people.

Since the beginning of the Syrian crisis and the terrorists from Al Qaeda Levant or as some western mainstream media like to call them: the Free Syrian Army, use mosques to store weapons, position snipers, launch attacks from, plot inside, organize gatherings and then booby trap when they feel surrounded and blow the mosque just to accuse the Syrian Army of attacking mosques knowing that many masses of Muslims would become furious just like what we witnessed with the stupid films and cartoons already.
This is one of the first clips we managed to obtain of them filming it to please their clerics abroad and show their ‘heroic’ acts. This cleric, last year ,asked them to blow up mosques if it helps demonize the Syrian Army.

Who are those called by the biased media “The Alawi miority ruling the country” in order to accomplish their sectarian target?
Some journalists coming from Europe who believed their media and had no good knowledge about Syria came with an idea bearing in their minds that the Alawis are a rich elite that is in power. A Danish journalist from “Politiken” was shocked to see some quarters on the suburbs of Damascus with Alawi majority that they are below intermediate. It is a general fact in our days and and it lasts since the Ottoman era! They were accused that they didn’t build mosques as the richer inhabitants of the other areas or as those who had the support of Ottomans,for example .Just turn your eyes to the poor villages of the European countries which knew what Ottoman invaders meant !You won’t find churches in the mountains used as hideout and shelter by those trying to protect their families of the thirst of blood of the occupiers! Alaween were to poor to have money to build a place for prayers,a mosque. During Hafez al Assad ‘s presidency there have started the construction of such worship places !What was written about that? In order to create the swirl they said”see the sect do not have mosques so they are not Muslims!” but forget to say” a good Muslim President who want to help them !” Why?

Although there were many Shia branches throughout history, modern Shia Islam is divided into three main branches. The largest Shia sect in the early 21st century is the Ithna Ashariyya commonly referred to in English as the Twelvers while smaller branches include the Ismaili and Zaidi (“Fivers”) Alaween and Druze are also sects of Shia Islam.
It is no secret that the Alaween Muslims are of the Twelve Ja’fari and they believe in Allah and His Messenger(pbuh) and follow the way Aljenbelania Alkhosaibih a mystical Kalnqhbandih way and Refaiya for the Sunnis .. Etc
Only a few who fairly wrote about the Alawi in situations of peace, let a side when moments in which the written about them in slaughtering seasons ,when they were slaughtered at the hands of barbarians of the twenty-first century .. Among those rare few who have written about the Alawites , from people of fairness, is the late writer and political person ,the Damascene Munir Sharif ,in his important book, “Alawite Muslims .. who are they? And where are they?” in the first half of the last century.
Notables members of the Alawite sect have already issued along, with spiritual,leaders a statement in the month of July 1936 ..among the first concrete steps of resistance

It was in July of 1936. A Syrian delegation was negotiating in Paris. A memorandum from people claiming tore present the mountain reached the French capital, disavowing the delegation, demanding the consecration of secession and disclaiming Arabism and Islam. The mountain rose up and flocked to al-Qardahah in the biggest mass rally representing 200,000 ‘Alawites to submit a memorandum, published by the Damascus newspaper, AL-QABAS, on 30 July 1936, clearing up matters about the mountain being an integral part of the country. It said that the ‘Alawite Mountain was Muslim and followed the Shiah faith, one of the five faiths of Islam, that there was no substitute for its Arabism and that the ‘Alawites would not settle for anything but unity. This crowd was led by ‘Aly Sulayman al-Asad, the father of young Hafiz al-Asad who was barely 6 years old at the time. But I had another rendezvous with the president’s father one month before the Qardahah conference. The 10-member committee of leading historians entrusted with writing Syria’s modern history—Professor Yusuf Zakhur and Dr Joseph Hajjar to photocopied all the archives on the mandate at the French Foreign Ministry document stating that ‘Aly Sulayman al-Asad and six others, including Shaykh Salih al-‘Ali, were the first to ask France to return Latakia to mother Syria (Document No 3547, 15 June 1936, French Foreign Ministry archives, petitions section).Of the most important parts of it: “1- any Alawi is a Muslim, believes in two testifications, and stands the five pillars of Islam. 2 – each Alawit who does not recognize himself as being Muslim, and denies the holy Quran as the Holy book, and that Muhammad(SAWA) is The Prophet, that person is no longer allowed into Alaween in Sharia , and will be denied any affiliation of Muslims Alawites .. etc. “among the signatories of this statement, which was published in the newspaper Al Qabas al Damascene on July 27, 1936 was Saleh al Ali Salman ( the leader of the Revolution against the French occupation in the mountains of Alawites) and Nasser Hakim and Jabir Abbas and Abdul-Karim Imran and Ali Mohamed Kamel .. Etc.. The essence of this statement was repeated in the fifties and sixties of the last century, and was signed by more than a hundred top clerics.
That who was the first to shoot in the face of the French occupation (in Syria) is the Revolutionay Sheikh Saleh Ali a signatory of the statement aforementioned ,the leader of the Alaween revolution in the mountains of Alawites in the days of 1918 spring of 1918, which continued for more than three years and nothing stooped it but end of supplies. And fairness requires that we mention that a lot of Sunni people of Tartous were leaders of that revolution and its supporters and lot of them were among the heroes who were sacrificed by the French army while defending the Syrian soil.
Mr Ihsan al-Jabiri, when he was governor of Latakia. A group from the al-Kinj clan that supported the French mandatory powers came to him threatening to chastise him personally if he did not stop his animosity toward France. The noble peaceful man was at a loss of what to do. ‘Ali Sulayman, who was present, told Ihsan and the other people there: “So long as you are right and are working for the good of the country, I am on your side, my people are on your side and the whole mountain is on your side. Tonight, I will send some people to guard the offices and the residence, come what may.” The Kinj clan was afraid of civil strife when they saw 20 men (most of them from the al-Assad ) betting on victory.
Sheikh Hussein Bin Hamdan Khusaibi ,an Alawite elder refused the alliance with the Fatimid state in Egypt, despite its proximity to them ,ideologically speaking (relative to the doctrine of al-Jaafari) and has chosen a proximity to the doctrine of the Arab state – in Baghdad,forming an Islamic alliance with them – the Abbasid state -despite their vulnerability and fragility, as the Abbasid was in pedaling stages. And his alliance with them is what we translate in the achievements of Seif al-Dawla al-Hamdani in the defense of Arabian front lines in the face of Roman! And it is self-evident that the relationship that linked Seif al-Dawla al-Hamdani with Hussein bin Hamdan Al Khusaibi does not need a definition.
As Catholics , Orthodox or Protestants are all Christians ,so the Alawi and Sunni are Muslims, and The Holy Quran, is the book of Alaween, and those who have the Coran as The Book are Muslims, like it or not, except if rebound from Islam “) quoted from Qabas Damascene July 30
The year 1936 :there are data about to the existence of secession and loft among people with political or personal reasons and social reasons, but none of those figures did not deny that the Alaween are from The Twelve Ja’afariun.What have mentioned above was in the stage to built up a conflict between nationalists (who refused to split) and separatists seeking to divide Syria according to the desire of the French (as the majority of the Syrian opposition wagered), and of course no one forced Alawites and elders such as Saleh Ali and Ismail Hawash and Jaber Abbas to issue this statements and rejecting the division indicating that Alaween are Muslims but it were testimonies of their faith :the Islam and that they only differed from an ideologically point of view for the Sunnis and others.
The Damascene writer Munir Sharif mentioned the words of the respectable Sheikh Abdul Latif Nashabeh cleric (father of great Law expert Mr. Abdul Wahab Nashabeh), who has heard him
in 1930 says: “The Alaween are Muslims, may been pushed far away by populists rulers with no culture nor architecture .And Mr. Sharif mentioned it is stated exactly: “As I toured in the villages of Alawites in Latakia (the Latakia included at that time Tartous and Misyaf and Talkalakh. Clarification from me: by my father), and did not spare any important village but visited it , and studied the conditions of these group closely, in their mountains and their valleys and their plain lands, and in this adequate study , I say: The Alaween are a part of Islam, they ever read the Koran with respect, and learning teans , and including today it’s to remember that I had entered some homes in remote villages by surprise, and without them to know anything me and I found boys busy in learning the Koran,and that their religious rituals, are appointed as Islamic rituals .. “(Alawites .. Who are they? And where are they?
Pp. 107 – Mounir al-Sharif, i 2, public printing press in Damascus). These is how Alaween lived as including
equitable summed by author with a conscience missed by lot of the authors at the time of al-Saud.
Alaween absolutely refuse the unification of divine self in Ali ibn Abi Talib, and disagree with the those who claim this, but probably say: that fit place for the manifestation of the divine powers in relation to what has been described, and what emerged from him, and appears from him as paranormal, invoked every Shiite scholars and mentioned by the majority of mother Books and Sunni sources, they did not have in other not what fit for that ,unlike Ibn al-‘Arabi, who says: God is reflected in the stone, and trees, and animals, even dogs .. In the words of the poet and scholar Ahmed Ali Hassan; here must be reiterated that the Alawites or Nusayris as it was called (the ratio of the Mohammed Bin Naseer) are not an independent entity and so are not alone from the other doctrine,they are Muslims ,their doctrine is Ja’fari and their way Junbulanah Khosaibih a as other of Sufi or other known division of Islam at present.
In July 1973 Musa al Sadr said that Alawi are Muslims and named one of them as a “Twelver Mufti of Tripoli and Northern Lebanon”
As we have noted above, some might believe in reincarnation does not come not from Shariah but from a personal philosophical point of view to life, although some men believe that divine justice or get straight without reincarnation (reincarnation), as well as we witness several amazing phenomena in our public life as those who telling you about precedent animals they lived.

Turkey ‘s history of massacres against religious minorities

Davutoglu argues that Syria is like Kosovo … forgetting that his country ‘s history of massacres against the Armenians and Kurds and Alaween, where there were killed a million and a half Armenians and hundreds of thousands of Alaween and tens of thousands of Kurds, as well as displacing the villages where they live, and trying to change the confessional map for many regions of the Alaween and Kurds, especially in the District of Iskenderun and the city of Antioch(Antakya) while offer a truly unique paradise designated only for Syrian “refugees “ who are mainly from a purist extremist Sunni environments ,belonging to the Muslim Brotherhood.
Turkey’s previous persecution of Alaween 
Alawites appeared in the political history of the Ottoman Empire, in the early sixteenth century AD, where they were accused by the Sultanan Bayezid II and Selim I Ottoman of allegiance to Cefoyen, and there were real massacres in the years 1511 and 1513. Alawites disappeared since that period from the political scene and bent on themselves, till the announce of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk of the national liberation war between 1918 and 1923, which draw the borders of Turkey as it is today and declared it republic. Despite the significant improvement to develop the Alawite community in Turkey,Alawites continued cautious ,fearing the Authority, and forcibly kept away from top jobs and remained unemployed, especially where most of them had lived away from the West of Turkey and major cities such as Istanbul and Ankara and where there was an extent of the state’s openness to the Islamists which created barriers in the relationship which needed to be respected or risk to fall.
Alawite fears reappeared in the periods in which they witness Islamic Turkish governments , with “Islamic fundamentalist policy” pursued by President governments:
In the fifties Adnan Menderes and coalition governments in which the Islamic National Safety Party led by Necmettin
Erbakan in the seventies,as well as the Islamic dimension of policies of the prime minister, the president of the republic
Torghout Ozal in the eighties and early nineties.
The pursue Turkish system generally, on the one hand, stricter about secular Islamic movements, while the system itself is moving, on the other hand, the ” extreme Sunni Muslim mentality” toward the Alevis, so they feel they are third-class citizens or tenth. Even more, acts of violence were practiced against the Alawites in the late seventies and the first half of the nineties, claiming the lives of a large number of civilians and there are fingers pointing to the complicity of the security forces in these massacres.

Alawites in Turkey are not a minority
The Alawite sect represents a unique case and ambiguous in its relations with the secular system as in its relations with majority (relativel) Sunni. It is not correct to classify the Alawite bloc as “minority” in light of the estimates indicating that the number of Alevis in Turkey is nearly twenty million.
The Alawites are distributed mainly on three races: Arabs, Kurds and Turks.
And it must be noted that all Alawites Although there are some minor differences in practices, but they return to the tenets of one to follow Imam Ali, peace be upon him and his preference to all creatures after the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him.

On April 24 in 1914 there has been the arrest of more than 250 dignitaries Armenians in Istanbul. After that, the Ottoman army proceeded for the expulsion of Armenians from their homes and forced them to march for hundreds of miles into the desert of what is now Syria, deprived of food and water, the massacres were randomized and many were killed regardless of age or sex, women were raped and sexual abused . Today the majority of Armenian in diaspora communities are the result of genocide committed against them by Erdogan’s grandparents. The Ottoman state in deliberately and systematically killed the Armenian population during and after the First World War, implementing this through massacres and deportations, forcible transfer which is about marches under harsh conditions designed to lead to the death of the deportees. Researchers estimate that the number of Armenian victims is ranging between 1 million and 1.5 million people.
Christian ethnic suffered also because the attacks and murder committed by the Ottoman Empire, including Assyrians / Syriacs / Chaldeans, through a series of military operations launched by the regular forces of the Ottoman State leading to the deaths of hundreds of thousands of them. They have also been displaced also from the original home areas in southeast Turkey and northwestern Iran. These massacres that targeted the Syriacs are called as Sipho massacres and they are also known as the Assyrian massacres and scholars estimate the number of Syriacs / Assyrians, victims between 250,000 to 500,000.
Not even the Greeks were spared of the evil Ottomans, as the successor government of the Young Turks of the Ottoman Empire ‘ instigation of violence against Greek Abanntih minority in Pontus and other areas inhabited by the Greek minority. Trying to avoid the campaign of massacres, in addition to a wide campaign of murder against these minorities most of them leave in exile. The number of victims according to sources is about half a million.
Wayne Madsen wrote for Strategic culture foundation:
There is a historical “eight hundred pound gorilla” lurking in the background of almost every serious military and diplomatic incident involving Israel, Turkey, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Greece, Armenia, the Kurds, the Assyrians, and some other players in the Middle East and southeastern Europe. It is a factor that is generally only whispered about at diplomatic receptions, news conferences, and think tank sessions due to the explosiveness and controversial nature of the subject. And it is the secretiveness attached to the subject that has been the reason for so much misunderstanding about the current breakdown in relations between Israel and Turkey, a growing warming of relations between Israel and Saudi Arabia, and increasing enmity between Saudi Arabia and Iran…
Although known to historians and religious experts, the centuries-old political and economic influence of a group known in Turkish as the “Dönmeh” is only beginning to cross the lips of Turks, Arabs, and Israelis who have been reluctant to discuss the presence in Turkey and elsewhere of a sect of Turks descended from a group of Sephardic Jews who were expelled from Spain during the Spanish Inquisition in the 16th and 17th centuries.

The Dönmeh rise to power in Turkey-Modern Turkey: a secret Zionist state controlled by the Dönmeh
Many Dönmeh, along with traditional Jews, became powerful political and business leaders in Salonica. It was this core group of Dönmeh, which organized the secret Young Turks, also known as the Committee of Union and Progress
Ataturk’s suspected strong Jewish roots, information about which was suppressed for decades by a Turkish government that forbade anything critical of the founder of modern Turkey, began bubbling to the surface, first, mostly outside of Turkey and in publications written by Jewish authors. The 1973 book, The Secret Jews, by Rabbi Joachim Prinz, maintains that Ataturk and his finance minister, Djavid Bey, were both committed Dönmeh .
The Young Turks’ support for Zionism, the creation of a Jewish homeland in Palestine, after World War I and during Nazi rule in Europe was rising and that endeared Turkey to Israel and vice- versa . An article in “The Forward “of May 8, 2007, revealed that Dönmeh dominated Turkish leadership “from the president down, as well as key diplomats . . . and a great part of Turkey’s military, cultural, academic, economic, and professional elites” kept Turkey out of a World War II alliance with Germany, and deprived Hitler of a Turkish route to the Baku oilfields.”
Israel has always been reluctant to describe the Turkish massacre of the Armenians by the Turks in 1915 as “genocide.” It has always been believed that the reason for Israel’s reticence was not to upset Israel’s close military and diplomatic ties with Turkey. However, more evidence is being uncovered that the Armenian genocide was largely the work of the Dönmeh leadership of the Young Turks. Historians like Ahmed Refik, who served as an intelligence officer in the Ottoman army, averred that it was the aim of the Young Turks to destroy the Armenians, who were mostly Christian. The Young Turks, under Ataturk’s direction, also expelled Greek Christians from Turkish cities and attempted to commit a smaller-scale genocide of the Assyrians, who were also mainly Christian.
The US Central Intelligence Agency along with the MI6, their British counterpart, managed to present the Muslim Brotherhood scholars falsely as the defenders of the correct Islam, while they were actually agents of anti-Islam agenda, willingly in general and unwillingly ,in some very few cases. By organizing their movement, financing it, training them and marketing them, the CIA & MI6 managed to present finally, after decades of preparations, their agents as the rulers of Islam, taking control of important Arabic countries in North Africa like Egypt, Tunisia, Libya and pushing them in the Levant unto Syria, Jordan, Iraq, recently Lebanon, then Yemen in the Arabic Peninsula and of course the GCC ,the Ottomans borrow Western practices and distort the real Islam and because Syria didn’t accept the diabolic game the Syrian nation became a target!

Where the majority of the Syrian people live modern lives and refuse to march backwards into the bosom of radical Islam, which degrades minorities and is trying to impose its rules in Syria and comparing with other Arab states ,the rulers of Damascus were able to evade from the Zionist control of economies and from IMF imposed structural adjustment ,in an unique economical system where the private sector partners the state’s one and where a professional army of Syrians belonging to all religions or sects was created to defend the country’s borders and forced to intervene in combating terrorism inside ,terrorism spread by those following the seeds planted by the Ottomans and French occupation,are the actual claims of some imperialist warmongers sustained by the reality?Are those in the segment they lie about not employees or are they present in all state’s higher institutions and the highest positions ,crossing all the limits of sectarian definitions?(unlike Turkey,or KSA or Qatar)Did you know that the most of the soldiers of Syria are Sunni because they are the sons of this land and no foreign mercenaries ? And that the highest ministerial positions where occupied by Sunni ? Here are some facts:

Since 1970 ,the Syrian minister of defense The Syrian Prime minister,the Syrian minister of Interior,have always been Sunni .
The Syrian Chief of Staff has always been Sunni or Christian (such as General Daoud Rajha that was martyred in the bombing of the headquarter of the National Security);
The Syrian General Intelligence Director (GID) General Ali Mamlouk is Sunni;
The Syrian General Director of the state Syrian Radio and TV has always been Sunni;
When they targeted Aleppo,one of the first victims were the Berri clan, Sunni citizens who stood for the unity and against sedition!All Sunni imams who refused to join the hegemony became targets or payed with their lives or with the lives of dear ones as Grand Mufti’s son Sariya Hassoun and the Mufti of Aleppo, Mahmud `Akkam blamed the armed gangs for the attack .This is the Grand Muft’s speech at the funerals of Sariya:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Ila4kTP24Y

In Damascus, gunmen assassinated Sheikh Mohammad Ahmad Ouf Sadeq, an imam at the mosque Anas bin MalekThe Islamic priest was returning to Damascus when an armed group intercepted his vehicle in Qadam Assali, in al-Bweideh district, in Damascus Countryside.Imam Sadeq, 36, who strongly condemned the terrorist attack on January 6 in al-Midan and called for national unity, had a Ph.D. in Sharia (Islamic law).
The priest Fadi Haddad Terrorists have assassinated Pastor of Mar Elias Church for Roman Orthodox in Qatana town in Damascus after days of abduction.
A source at the Roman Orthodox Patriarchate in Damascus said that the body of Father Fadi Haddad was found near Drousha area on Damascus-Quneitra highway, sustaining a gunshot wound to the head.
The source noted that the terrorists kidnapped Father Haddad in Artouz town while he was seeking the release of a kidnapped person from the hands of terrorists.
And when the terrorist destroyed the old market of Aleppo ,did they asked about the owner’s sect? When they target the security barriers,do they ask the soldiers’ sect?

And how come all the extremists’ revolutions supported by the Muslim Brotherhood and Salafist hegemony always coincide with the different invasions on Israeli agenda?
Do you really think that a divided,sectarian external “opposition” with an anti-state,anti-land ,anti-rural and anti reform plans ,having as the only target the seats on the political scene backed by oligarchy and petrodollars ,against the popular sectors could succeed?
Remember that the subject is Syria-an independent nation since ancient times,a national true type rooting from every heart of its citizens which was developed across the centuries and positioning Syria in our days as the heartland of anti Zionism fight!

De ce Siria?”Istoria favorizează îndrăzneala fiecarui agresor pe taramul musulman: cum forțele internaționale – imperialismul și războiul – au afectat profund statul sirian”.

Nu este nimic neobișnuit în intelegerile secrete ale regimurilor actuale și anterioare, Arabe precum Al Saud (, Qatar, Iordania, Egipt Hosni Mubarak, Tunisia Zine El Abidine, etc ..) cu Israel, excepție fiind regimul sirian,unde nici presedintele trecut in nemurire, Hafez al-Assad sau actualul președinte Bashar al Assad nu au semnat vreun acord să se predea și nu au dat mâna cu israelienii, dar au marcat istoria tarii în războiul Tshreen sau arabismului febril al Libanului! În Siria cei care fac afaceri cu uzurpatorul sionist se pedepsește aceasta rămânand singura țară în cazul în care produsele israeliene nu au acces! Siria a fost singura entitate ce a rezistat ocupatiei numita Israel, spre deosebire de statele din Golfși ei încearcă să-l distrugă! Cine sunt ei?
Conducătorii din Golf- care,printre altele-au permis Israelului sa existe și sa se extinda și sa prospere și sa impiedice orice pas cu privire la orice încercare de eliberare Palestina,precum statul Qatar, care sprijină terorismul, sectarismul și revolta împotriva Siriei, împreună cu Arabia Saudită și Turcia ce permit teroriștilor ,mercenarilor, sediționistilor și agentilor operativi sub acoperire sa distruga seculara Siria.

Diviziunea musulmanilor își are rădăcinile într-o rivalitate veche între cei care credeau succesorii Profetului Mohamed (pacea fie cu el) ar trebui să fie selectati dintre tovarășii săi credincioși (sunnit) și cei care au crezut că musulmanii ar trebui să fie condusi de membrii ai familiei Profetului (Shia), problema este, în esență unul politic – sunniți și șiiți împărtășesc aceleasi convingeri fundamentale islamice și Cora’nul este cartea sfântă!
Lupta asupra succesiunii sa încheiat cu secole în urmă, dar această problemă a reinviat, în ultimele decenii, cu un fel de cinism politic care prezinta decalajul real – cu excepția a grupuri mici de fundamentaliști extremisti – si viziunea lor asupra lumii politice si a tradiției religioase ca marca Wahhabi a Islamului carenu a fost introdus de către învățații musulmani, ci mai degrabă de MI6 britanic in secolul al 19-lea în deșertul Arabiei.

In aceste zile,asistăm la răspândirea unei “culturi” de Al Saud și Salafi ce circulă în regiune, facilitând marturii mincinoase și de spin în mass-media de “arabilor” ce vizează Alawitii și alte secte religioase sau credinte, precum Aljzeera sau Alarabya și ziare ca Alhayat și “Orientul Mijlociu”, ce sunt un bun exemplu, pentru modul în care alianța ” a culturii” Saud se impleteste cu “neo-liberalalismul” Vestului Salbatic straduiandu-se sa creeeze un nou Orientul Mijlociu?!
“Mă rog la Allah că printre acesti agresori sa fie si din cei care intr-adevar se închină lui Allah”-spunea de Profetul (pacea asupra lui)
In una Predici Sh.M.Saeed Ramadan Al-Bouti
Mawlid Khutba Fiqh al Minorităților,spunea
Toate lauda se datoreaza Allah, lauda în conformitate cu binecuvântările Sale și compensează abundența Lui. Domnul nostru, pentru tine este ca se cuvine toată lauda măreției feței dumneavoastră și puterea autorității dumneavoastră.
O, Allah, eu nu pot enumera suficiente laude pentru Tine; Sunteți așa cum ați lăudat Sinele vostru. Depun mărturie că nu există nici un Dumnezeu, doar Allah singurul și El nu are nici un partener, si Depun mărturie că nostru Profetul Muhammad este Trimisul Lui și sclavul sau
“Nici unul dintre voi va avea cu adevarat credinta in Allah si Trimisul Sau decat atunci cand acestia va vor fi sunt mai dragi mai mult decât orice altceva.” El a mai spus: “Nici unul dintre voi va avea cu adevarat credinta, până când ei nu va vor fi mai dragi decât averea, copiii sau sinele…”

Crearea și dispersarea fundamentaliștii din lumea arabă în direcții imperialiste

Inutil să explicam importanta locației geopolitice strategică a regiunii cunoscută ca Levant sau “Siria”,ce la sfârșitul secolului al XIX-lea și începutul secolului XX a fost o entitate geografica, cunoscut sub denumiri diverse precum”Mare Sirie”, ” Siria geografica” sau ” Natural Siria “, care a inclus Siria ,Liban, Palestina, Iordania și o mare parte a Irakului (sunt unii care includ întregul Irak pentru această unitate geografică) din zilele noastre.Această zonă. a fost întotdeauna centrul de concurență între puterile coloniale de la diferite perioade de timp în istorie .. referitoare aici: Vest colonialismul(francez sau englez), la începutul secolului XX. După înfrângerea Turciei în primul război mondial pe 16 mai 1916, în mijlocul primului război mondial, Paris și Londra a aprobat un acord secret pentru a dezmembra Imperiul Otoman și a împărți Orientul Mijlociu între ele.

Acordul Sykes-Picot stabilie granite noi pentru multe țări din regiune, și a început o perioadă de control direct al Orientului Mijlociu pe care Occidentul a încercat să o perpetueze până în prezent. Britanicii și francezii si-au impartit regiunea arabă după ce au renegat promisiunile lor fata arabi să recunoască Statul Major arab (Hijaz și Levant și Irak), și au ocupat aceste țari, sub pretextul unui mandat și susținând că arabii nu erau încă gata să se guverneze singuri. .. Planul Sykes Picot era gata să împartă Siria geografica , deoarece prin menținerea acesteia unită ar fi permis un stat mai puternic în viitor, care ar fi amenințat interesele acestor țări in regiune, astfel o graniță a fost elaborata impartind Siria de la la est la vest,de la nord la sud si o zona centrala. Partea de sud, s-a numit Palestin asi a fost repartizat Marii Britanii, partea de nord,s-a numit Siria și Liban, a fost repartizat Franței. Partea de sud a fost ulterior împărțită în Palestina, la vest, și Transiordania – un nume complet nou – la est de râul Iordan. Siria a fost împărțită în cinci părți: Liban, inclusiv în principal orașele Tripoli, Beirut, Sidon si Tyre, Cilicia și mai târziu zona Iskandarun a fost repartizat otomanilor și statul actual Siria, cu principalele orașe ale Alep, Hama, Homs și Damasc, regiunea muntoasă a Jabal al-druzi, cu Swaida ca orasul principal; sangeacul Latakia, Latakia cu cât orașul său principal, și sangeacul Alexandretta, Aqttawa zona Mosul, în estul Siriei a fost anexată în Irak, sub tutela britanică – și a pus restul Siriei (și anume Siria actuala), sub controlul mandatului francez. Formularea unei soluționări postbelice pentru Orientul Mijlociu a fost convenit la Conferința de la San Remo, în aprilie 1920. Fostele provincii otomane au fost împărțite în entități numite mandate. Noile mandate au fost acordate condiționat și sub supravegherea unei autorități din afara, Liga Națiunilor. In urmatorul deceniu, populația din aceste teritorii au fost arbitrar și artificial divizata. Competențele obligatorii, Marea Britanie și Franța, au delimitat noi frontiere in deșert și limitele comunale. În Siria, francezii a mers mai departe, creând mici state cu semi-autonomie locala în cadrul statului,cu un sistem politic național și cum aceasta nu era de ajuns au încercat să împartă restul dintre ele pe baza religioasă și sectariana la nivel regional:. Alep -stat în nord si Statul de Damasc, în centrul și sud -Sunite, statul de pe coasta de Alawita și statul Druz, în partea de sud ..
Din fericire, acestea nu a putut reuși, din cauza gradului de conștientizare a sirienilor și a luptei lor pentru unitatea patriei și împotriva coloniștilor francezi, care a fost prezentate în rafală in Revoluția de Eliberare caracterizata în toate cele patru zone: în partea de sud (zone druzior) a condus Sultan Al-Pașa Atrash – în regiunea Sahel (zonele de coastă), condusa de Ali Saleh Sheikh – din nord condusa de Ibrahim Hanano (zone Idleb și sunniți Aleppo) – În Damasc și Gottha (zonele sunnite), care a dus la victoria naționala siriana asupra coloniștilor francezi. Siria si-a câștigat independența în 1946 și a fost numita Republica Arabă Siriană.
Al-‘Azmah a absolvit Academia Militară Otomana în 1906. El s-a alăturat revoltei arabe împotriva otomanilor, care au redat Siriei independența în 1918.
Planificat, în secret, conform Acordului Sykes-Picot, generalul francez Gouraud a emis un ultimatum guvernului sirian în 1920 să dizolve trupele sale și să le prezinte sub control francez. Guvernul din Damasc prezentat fără tragere de inimă la ultimatumul francez și a desființat trupele sale. Dar Yusuf Al-‘Azmah a refuzat să dea inapoi un inch. El a ridicat un corp mic de trupe desființate și civili, slab înarmați față de moderna, bine echipata Armata franceză profesională. Deși el nu a avut nici o iluzie despre rezultatul bătăliei, Al-‘Azmah a vrut sublinieze clar faptul că Siria nu ar preda fără luptă!
Sultan Al Atrash s-au luptat cu turcii, alaturi de tatăl său și alți oameni de Djebel, în revolta lor împotriva turcilor. Apoi, în 5/3/1911, Thoukan a fost spânzurat de turci în Piața publică în Damasc (Al-Marja). Mai târziu, în 1916, Marea Revoluție arab împotriva turcilor a fost comandată de Hussein al Sharif Mecqua. Sultan a participat în această revoluție, și a fost primul care a intrat Damasc cu oamenii lui, după bătălia de la “Tilal Al-Manea”, în apropiere de Damasc, si primul care a ridicat steagul Arabilor Uniti pe acoperisul clădirii Guvernului de la Damasc (Saraya) . Acest steag a fost făcut de femeile din familia sultanului Al-Atrash.
În Mayssaloun, sultanul a vrut să-l ajute Youssef Al-Azma, el a mers la Braq, în partea de sud a Damascului, dar era prea târziu: francezii intrasera in Damasc, la 24 iulie 1920. În scopul de a domina oamenii, francezii divizat în Siria state separate, în funcție de comunitățile religioase. Sultan Al-Atrash Pasha a refuzat aceste state și a luptat pentru reunificarea Siriei.
Ibrahim Hanano, lider al rebeliunii, în nordul Siriei, a venit la Djebel al-Arab a fi protejat de Sultan Al-Atrash.
-În 1922, și pe parcursul a 9 luni, sultanul a condus revoluția prima sa bătălie a fost cea de la “Tal al-Hadid” în Souweida. Scopul acestei revoluții a fost de a unifica într-un singur stat regiunile siriene,o națiune independentă, iar sloganul ei a fost: “Religia este pentru Dumnezeu, Națiunea este pentru noi toți”. Deci, obiectivul secularismul a fost foarte clar înca din această revoluție. Dar Mandatul francez a fost împotriva secularismului în Siria, de aceea a împărțit în Siria state comunități religioase “!

Naționalismul arab și specificul lui în Siria

Nu este greu de observat faptul că Siria a fost singurul dintre statele arabe ocupate, care a fost împărțit în acest mod: invadatorii au păstrat Egiptul, Sudanul, Libia, Algeria, Maroc, Tunisia, și într-o mai mică măsură, Irak, la o scară geografica foarte mare . Prin urmare, divizia Siriei in statele mici in scopul protejarii entitatii sioniste din Palestina si pentru a avea un impact puternic asupra moralului poporului sirian ,fapt ce a determinat si stabilit orientările politice ale partidelor siriene -să adopte sloganuri pentru sustinerea naționalismului și unionismului (cel mai important dintre acestea părți: Baath Arab Socialist Party și Partidul Național Socialist Sirian), precum și cele cu orientari comuniste. In Siria părțile și-a păstrat speranța unității (nu numai în Siria, dar în intreaga lume arabă ), în conștiința fiecărui cetățean sirian acest lucru fiind inradacinat. . Naționalismul arab este o ideologie naționalistă care celebrează gloria civilizației arabe, limba și literatura araba și uniunea politică în lumea arabă . O națiune in care cetatenii sunt legați de lingvistica comună, patrimoniul cultural, religios și istoric, format prin stabilirea treptată a arabei ca limba de comunicare. Atât araba cat și islamul au servit ca piloni ai națiunii. Un străin ar putea observa cu ușurință că Siria este singurul stat arab care încorporează în numele său în cuvântul “arab” înainte de “sirian”, în cazul în care ceilalți au acceptat Israelul ca putere dominantă în regiunea arabă, iar unii dintre ceilalti arabii moderni reprezinta doar “bani”, “investiții” și petrol, sclavi și sateliții ce se rotesc pe orbita israeliana.
Dupa 1967, puterea mișcărilor islamice crescut foarte mult, Occidentul a favorizat Israelul și arabii care a acceptat să lucreze cu entitatea sionistă precum Arabia Saudită și Qatar. Această a treia fază a relațiilor vest-islamice a început atunci când facțiuni ale acestei mișcări islamice fundamentaliste au început să-și exercite influența lor politică nouă de-a lungul unor largi zone ale lumii musulmane. Sadat și Faisal nu au întrerupt sprijinul acordat regimurilor occidentale precum și unii arabi clienti “pentru mișcările islamice- Arabia Saudită și Egipt permis pro-islamic utilizarea aparatelor lor de propagandă de stat … Și Israel, ca totdeauna, înclinat să susțină mișcările separatiste, a actionat la suprafata ca un alt „suporter” al Islamului și a început să finanțeze Fratia Musulmana.
Mișcările islamice au incercat să-și asume conducerea politică a maselor arabe din Orientul Mijlociu,cu ajutorul agentiilor straine , excepție facand Președintele Siriei: Hafez al Assad, presedintele singurei țari arabe, care nu a fost instalat de CIA și și care a refuzat să se supună și să integreze în planul lor.

Copeland intervievat în 1969, reflecta cu tristețe asupra dezastrului creat în Siria. El este vocea unei generații de americani care au încercat să intervină pentru a aduce „democrația” în Orientul Mijlociu – nu doar în Siria, dar mai târziu, în Iran și în Egipt lui Nasser.

“Jocul(The Game)”, el se referă un joc de gestionare , exercițiu al CIA in anii 1950, cand planificarea intervențiilor incepuse. Scopul lui era de a prezice modul în care toti “jucatorii” politici din țară s-ar comporta, dar previziunile au fost greșite! Za’im a promis americanilor că va arunca toți politicienii corupți de la închisoare, să reformeze țara, să recunoască noul stat Israel, și să aducă apoi în democrația corectă. Toti americanii erau convinsi că ar fi un plan genial – cu excepția unui singur om,o tânăra ofițer politic numit Deane Hinton. Copeland descrie un moment cand au fost în Damasc pentru planificarea loviturii de stat atunci ,când Hinton a apelat la restul grupului și a spus: “Vreau să fie trecut la dosar ca eu consider ca acest lucru este stupid, este acțiunea cea mai iresponsabila într-o misiune diplomatică ca a noastra si ar putea avea implicatii nedorite…am început o serie de aceste lucruri pe care niciodată nuo vom putea sfârși “(Deane Hinton, ofițer politic, Ambasada SUA în Siria, 1947. Hinton a avut dreptate, vorbindu-i CIA ului american care a” deschis. ușă catre Evul Mediu “, în Siria de atunci). “Jocul” este un joc de gestionare ,un joc -exercițiu al CIA in anii 1950, cand se realiza planificarea intervențiilor, atunci când cea mai mare parte a poporului sirian a fost ingrozit de America, nu doar din cauza intervențiilor și a loviturilor de stat, dar și din cauza sprijinului lor pentru Israel.De aceea ei au apelat la sovietici ,pentru a transmite un mesaj Americii. Ei vedeau, de asemenea, Israel, în calitate de agent al Americii.
În 1963, în Siria, “gluma” favorita era :” lovitura de stat, care se va întâmpla doar în cazul în care mass-media occidentala soseste”. În care: complotiștii se așteaptă reporterul Panorama pentru a porni deoarece ei știu că lovitura de stat nu vor fi reala până când este raportată de către Vest(exemplu al media din zilele noastre).Acesta este un exemplu timpuriu de techno-orientalism, care se repetă astăzi mass-media unde populatia are convingerea că este rețelele sociale mass-media occidentale au făcut posibilă revoltele din Tunisia și Egipt. În 1963, în timp ce în Irak altă lovitură de stat a CIA recolta rezultate, Ba’th-ul sirian , de această dată fără ajutorul CIA,dadea prima lovitura de stat : Hafez al-Assad a fost unul dintre lideri. Planul său în Siria a fost de a depăși sectarismul care a impanzit întotdeauna lumea arabă, pentru a crea o societate seculară, în care toată lumea a fost inclus,nutrind o ura profundă pentru conducerea tarii de francezi ca și pentru perioada otomană si cei ce au practicat un program „divide et impera”, în mod deliberat întreținand și exagerat diviziunile sectariene din țară. Desigur, un conducător sirian patriotic ,care a refuzat sa fie un actor în scenariile Vestului nu a putut fi văzut ca un semn bun în cercurile sioniste ci un obstacol.
Secularismul este “un concept politic care necesită o separare între societatea civila și societatea politică, în cazul în care statul nu exercită nici o autoritate de religioasă iar castele religioase nu exercită nici o autoritate politică”, religia “este pentru Dumnezeu și patria pentru toți “…… despre secularism în Orientul Mijlociu, Ali Abdel Razek, eminent doctor in dreptul islamic, un judecător și autor al cartii “Islamul și guvernanța”, în 1925, a declarat pentru prima dată în istoria islamică că nimic din textele cărților sfinte islamice nu contesta faptul ca este necesar ca musulmanii sa poata alege un sistem politic care li se potriveste …… Această carte a provocat controverse, și el a fost acuzat de către extremiști din Islam, în special de către Wahabi și cei care visează revigorarea otomanilor.
Statul laic predomină astăzi în lumea civilizată, iar statul religios există și constituie nucleul dur al proiectului islamistilor extremisti “(excepție: singurul stat religios în Europa: Vatican)
Seculariști și minoritățile religioase sunt expuse, în Orientul Mijlociu, Salafismului extremismului și conservatorismul în creștere ,echipele secrete americane, franceze si britanice echipele lucrand la aprofundarea conflictelor.! Prin crearea P2OG s-a inceput lansarea de operațiuni secrete care vizează stimularea de”reacții” printre teroriști și state care posedă arme de distrugere în masă, ceea ce înseamnă că ei produc celule teroriste în acțiune, ceea ce le expune un “rapid răspuns” -atacuri de către forțele americane. Mijloacele prin care s-ar face acest lucru este mult mai marea utilizare a acestor forțe pentru operații speciale. Modelul pe care liderii partidului AKP l-a desemnat lumii arabe și musulmane este in punctul de colaps. Retorica doctrinară a acestor lideri a devenit practic o referință pentru cele mai multe dintre mișcările radicale din lumea musulmană. Mass-media este folosită ca o armă teribila si asa cum oricine poate observa, războiul mass-media în aceste zile se concentrează pe o minciună “regimul Alawite”, o idee sectariana folosita ca tipar de către toate mass-media părtinitoare și ignorând în totalitate crimele oribile comise de către diferite grupări armate, unde victimele aparțin tuturor comunităților religioase din Siria si pentru că toată lumea se opune “jocului” aceasta a devenit o țintă, în scopul de a urmări planul sionist! Acest plan, care a creat Israelul, în cazul în care într-o farsă, multe țări în toată lumea ar vedea Israel ca o democrație, dacă nu ca singura democrație în această parte a lumii! Democrația este, cu toate acestea, inseparabilă de alegerea liberă a oamenilor de-a lungul istoriei. Fost-a oare Israelul, democratic stabilit și construit ca orice altă țară în toată lumea? Israel a fost stabilit pe morminte, sânge și oase de civili nevinovați în Palestina. Fondatorii săi nu a făcut nici alegeri ,nici nu au votat pentru a obține acordul de la diaspora pentru Palestina! In orice fel am analiza, ce a urmat uzurparii executate de israelieni in Palestina,acolo a fost o istorie de crime, asasinate, expulzări și acaparari. Așa numita prefabricata garnizoana de stat a fost acolo, dar ei nu pot preciza frontiere definite sau beneficia de o constituție … Aceasta chiar acționează și trateaza în mod diferit evreii Ashkenazi sau sefarzi. Dacă da, cum s-ar respecta Israel non-evreii prin simpla existență și prezență? Etichetarea Israelului ca o democrație, este ,de fapt,o umilință pentru ceea ce este democrația reală! Dar ei țintesc sectele musulmane și otravesc mințile musulmanilor “.
Seculara Siria -Siria o țară deschisă la dialog
În august 2008, Marele Muftiu al Siriei, Ahmad Badr El Din El Hassoun, l-a invitat pe Papa Benedict al XVI-lea să viziteze țara sa, cu ocazia Anului Paulin.
La o întâlnire în Damasc cu un grup de jurnaliști care participă la un tutorialul organizat de Opera Romana ,in pelerinaje să urmeze în urmele Apostolului și avut loc la invitația Ministerului sirian al Turismului, cea mai mare sunnit musulman din Siria a relansat dialogul creștin -musulman in vederea păcii în lume. La 15 ianuarie, la Strasbourg, vorbind în fața deputaților în Parlamentul European reunit în sesiune formală,Marele Muftiu a vorbit de necesitatea unui dialog intercultural fructuos în vederea coexistenței pașnice a popoarelor din bazele comune ale diferitelor religii, deoarece “cultura spiritului, fie creștină sau musulmană, dă umanității dimensiunea ei morală.” El ,de asemenea, a spus că ar trebui să creeze în zona Marii Mediteraneene , fără arme sau droguri, fără război, fără fundamentalism.
Acum, în 2012 teama de fundamentalism a fost dovedita ca fiind fondat: vanturile care sufla pe Damasc din țările vecine amenință minoritatea creștină și dorința siriana, cea mai mare provocare este incertitudinea, în ciuda dorinței generale a unui stat laic.
Siria un exemplu de coexistență a comunitatilor creștinilor si musulmanilor pentru întreaga lume

Siria, un teren de istorie și civilizație antică, leagănul religiilor monoteiste de-a lungul istoriei, în cazul în care fiecare bob miroase a civilizații vechi și religii, unde istoria se reflectă mândru și creativitatea umană si-a pus amprenta. Aici a fost creat primul alfabet, prima bibliotecă, agricultură și sisteme de irigare cu mii de ani în urmă. Siria are o poziție geografică strategică ca o răscruce de trei continente, Asia, Africa și Europa, această poziție a făcut ca in Siria sa se intalneasca aici rute strâns legate de comerț, precum „Drumul matasii” din China și departele extreme ale Europei. Piese de teatrul au fost jucate in piețe și palate ale marilor orașe siriene, in Damasc, Alep, Tadmur (Palmyra), Bosra, Rasafa, un schimb continuu de cultura, care a transformat Siria într-un teren de ospitalitate transmis de la o generație la următoarea.
Capitala Siriei este Damasc, cel mai vechi oras locuit, a fost numit Ebla, în al treilea mileniu î.Hr. Care s-a dezvoltat in epoca aramaică devenind un mare regat . Acesta a fost unul dintre primele zece orașe romane din est și a ajuns la înălțimea slavei sale, când a fost ales capitala secolului al șaptelea al statului islamic în primul rând. Umayyad a fost transformat în țara științei și culturii islamice. Acesta a ridicat în centrul orașului Moscheea Umayyad, una dintre cele mai vechi și cel mai mari din istoria “Islamului. În sala de rugaciune este altarul pentru capul lui Ioan Botezătorul. Moscheea a fost vizitata în 2002 de către Papa Ioan Paul al Doilea- prima vizită a unui Papă într-o moschee în care sa întâlnit cu musulmani și creștini într-un exemplu de fraternitate și de dialog între religii. Cu această ocazie, Papa a vorbit aceste cuvinte: “Dialogul dintre religii este mult mai eficient dacă experiența de viață de zi cu zi, în aceeași civilizație de creștini și musulmani ce au trăit alături de secole în Siria pentru, menținerea unui dialog constant și plin de viață. “In perioada actualelor evenimente,intr-o predică din rugăciunile, imamului Walid Abdel Haq ,el i-a chemat pe sirieni să oprească lupta „pentru că voi toți sunteți frați”.
“Nu vedeti ce sa întâmplat timp de doi ani în țară, distrugere și moarte? Opriti acest lucru”, a spus el.
“Sirienii trebuie să se întoarcă la Dumnezeu pentru a învinge această discordie sectariana pe care ei încearcă să o creeze aici! Noua Siria sau Noul Orient Mijlociu, trebuie sa fie create de noi și nu cele care se încearcă să fie impuse … de dușmani ai Islamului și a Siriei.”.
Dar Siria este unica … Șeicii musulmani merg la biserică să îi felicite pe preoți în zile ale sarbatorilor sfinte și acestia sunt felicitati de Eid sau un imam participa la înmormântarea unui preot …

La Marea Moschee, din Damasc,Excelenta Sa ,Muhammed Saeed Ramadan Bouti dovedește că Islamul nu are nimic de-a face cu teroriștii sau terorismul sau cu instigarea și uciderea sectariana ordonata de “șeicii de ecran”
Toate materialele care au fost publicate pe site-uri, cum ar fi “Wikipedia” au suferit modificări, în scopul de a susține campania diabolica, care vizează sirienii și istoria lor. Majoritatea celor occidentale sau apartinand Golfului sunt acele canale in care discursurile transmise apartin “seicilor de ecran”, cum ar fi Youssef Karadaoui a cărui fosta soție a evidențiat faptul că soțul ei are relații cu Mossad și că Qatar îl folosește ca predicator în planul Statelor Unite ale Americii / Zionste pentru a controla lumea arabă, fiind un vorbitor de ebraica fluent. Unele rapoarte, din informații arabe, au evidențiat deja unele secrete ale lui Youssef Al-Karadaoui precum vizitele anterioare în Israel și, de asemenea, unele întâlniri secrete (discutii), avute în 2009, în capitala Doha a Qatarului, ca principalul motiv de divorț.

Creștini și musulmani în Damasc

O succesiune neregulată a bisericilor și moscheilor se distinge cartier predominant creștine din Damasc,distingandu-se o varietate de rituri creștine pe care le puteți găsi aici :greco-Ortodox și greco-catolic, ortodox sirian catolic și sirieni maroniti, caldeeni, Orthodox, armeni catolici …etc
Cartierul din Damasc, care se extinde pana la cele două porți de Bab Tuma și Bab Sharqi, este o aglomeratie de biserici și moschei. Acest lucru nu trebuie să fie înșelător cu privire la prezența numerică a creștinilor într-o țară în care marea majoritate a populației este musulmană. “Nu există statistici oficiale” – spune un diacon al bisericii Syrio-catolice-“, dar prezența creștină în Siria ar trebui să fie în jurul valorii de șase la sută.”
Și despre politica guvernului: “În Siria există libertatea de cult care este cu siguranță este cea mai liniștită a zonei.” Aici, în Damasc, atunci cand intrebi despre relațiile dintre creștini și musulmani pe oamenii de pe stradă, unul poate fi uimit de răspunsurile tolerante. “Suntem cu toții sirieni Apoi, fiecare are propriul lui mod de a se ruga la Dumnezeu.”,un răspuns dintr- o istorie care se întinde pe mii de ani in multe culturi și religii, si sirienii au o experiență bună în domeniul dificil al coexistenței între diferitele religii .
E o chestiune de perspectivă. Leagănul creștinismului este aici, în aceste zone. Este logic să ne gândim că pentru un sirian nu există nici o contradicție între apartenență la țara lui și, în același timp religia creștină. În Damasc … există prima biserică datata în istorie, și anume Biserica lui Anania, care a botezat și vindecat Sf. Pavel când a ajuns în apropierea Damascului.Si casa lui Anania, în interiorul portii din Bab Kisan, este păstrata dovada de evadare din zidurile orașului sfânt, ascunsi într-un coș pentru a scăpa de legionari romani.
Și amintiri biblice există … Pe un munte în oraș, numit Arba’yyn Jabal (Muntele de patruzeci de ani), există o moschee mică, care reprezintă exact pentru prezența de patruzeci mihrab-ul (nișă în peretele care indică direcția de rugăciune), dar care este faimoasa, în principal ,deoarece interiorul este stâncă în locul în care Cain la ucis pe Abel.
O jumătate de oră de la Damasc, în satul Ma’alula, oamenii vorbesc încă limba aramaică veche, care este limba lui Isus o zona cu o majoritate creștină, si unde unele pesteri păstreaza memoria miracolului Sf. Tecla. De ceva timp “, guvernul sirian a lucrat din greu pentru protecția acestei limbi, adevarata” viu arheologică “, în istoria vorbirii.
Politica guvernului aflat la putere este un alt factor important care echilibrează balanța de coexistență între comunități. În Siria moderna , partidelor cu orientari extremiste islamiste nu le-a fost permis accesul pe scena politica si este adesea remarcat faptul că președintele sau alți oficiali guvernamentali participa ca oaspeti in celebrarile crestine,lucru exploatat in mod mincinos si in imagini negative de catre extremisti!
Extremiștii creati de Vest

A se vedea în prezent, aspiratiile Orientului Mijlociu care se bazează pe umilire și pe privatiunea popoarelor si pe alienarea identitatii și a drepturilor lor, și unde Arabismul a devenit o iluzie. Toată lumea știe acum că planul a fost pregătit în prealabil și s-au scris multe despre faptul că acest plan, al războiului, a fost stabilit cu multi ani înainte. Asta e ceea ce fundamentalismul extremist a adus in Siria, de care Wahabi, tendință care infesteaza Orientul Mijlociu, o ideologie contoversata inca de la radacinile sale, unde Ibn Abd al-ʿ Wahhab a fost criticat pentru distrugerea istoriei islamice făcând abstracție,de monumente, tradiții și sfințenia lor. Fratele său , Sulayman, a fost deosebit de critic, susținând că Ibn Abd era prost-educat și intolerant, clasificand viziunea lui Ibn ʿ Abd al-Wahhab ca absurda si fanatica.Sulayman ʿ Abd al-Wahhab, de asemenea, a sugerat fratele său a fost selectiv cu invatatii predecesori , până la punctul de a ignoranta sau desconsidera pe unii si tratarea altora ca divini infailibili. Atât Sulayman și Ibn Humaydi (muftiul Hanbali în Mecca) au sugerat ca Ibn Abd al-ʿ Wahhab a fost chiar selectiv cu lucrările lui insusi Ibn Taymiyyah, ale căror opinii contrare i-a influențat îndeaproape pe Salafi. Fratele lui Salman Ibn Abd al-Wahhab, unul din invatatii si imamii de seama de la Mekka, a scris o carte în respingerea învățăturilor frații săi numită:” Cuvântul final din Coran, Hadith, și Zicerile inteleptilor În ceea ce privește Scoala de Ibn Abd al-Wahhab “, de asemenea, cunoscut sub numele de:” Al-Sawa `iq-al Ilahiyya fi Madhhab Al-Wahhabiyya” (” Divine fulgere În ceea ce privește Școala Wahhabi”). În “Respingerea Wahhabismul în Surse arabe, 1745-1932”. Conexiunea Dönmeh cu Casa al-Saud din Arabia Saudită.

Un spion irakian (General in Direcția de Informații Militare) in Raportul Top Secret, “Evolutia Wahhabismului și rădăcinile sale istorice”, datat septembrie 2002 și eliberat la 13 martie 2008, de către Agenția de Informații a SUA al apărării, tradus în engleză , puncteaza radacinile Dönmeh ale fondatorul ui sectei saudite Wahhabi a Islamului, Muhammad ibn Abdul Wahhab. O mare parte din informațiile sunt culese din memoriile se remarca aparitia unui domn ” Humfer, “(așa cum sunt în raportul DIA”, a spus Hempher “, scris ca recordul istoric), un spion britanic care a folosit numele de” Mohammad, ” ce s-ar fi pretins a fi un azer care vorbea fluent turcă, persană, arabă și și care l-a contactat pe Wahhab în mijlocul secolului al 18-lea cu scopul de a crea o sectă a islamului, care ar aduce în cele din urmă despre o revolta arabă împotriva otomanilor și să deschidă calea pentru introducerea unui stat evreiesc în Palestina. Memoriile Humfer sunt povestite de scriitorul otoman și de amiral Ayyub Pașa Sabri în 1888 lucrarea sa, “începutul și răspândirea wahhabismului.”
În cartea sa, evreii Dönmeh, D. Mustafa Turan scrie că bunicul lui Wahhab, Tjen Sulayman, a fost de fapt Tjen Shulman, un membru al comunității evreiești din Basra, Irak. Raportul de informații irakiane, de asemenea, prevede că, în cartea sa, evreii Dönmeh și originea Wahhabi sauditi, Rifat Salim Kabar relevă faptul că în cele din urmă Shulman Hejaz,s-a stabilit în satul Al-Ayniyah ceea ce este acum Arabia Saudită, si unde nepotul său a fondat secta Wahhabi a Islamului. Raportul de informații irakian prevede că Shulman a fost alungat din Damasc, Cairo, și Mecca pentru “sarlatanie.” În sat, asa cum dorise Shulman Abdul Wahhab,fiul lui Abdel Wahhab , Muhammad, a fondat wahhabismul modern
Raportul irakian de asemenea, face unele pretenții uluitoare despre familia Saud. Aceasta citează cartea Abdul Wahhab Ibrahim al-Shammari lui, Mișcarea Wahhabi: Adevăr și Radacini, care prevede că Regele Abdul Aziz Ibn Saud, primul monarh al Regatul Arabia Saudită, a fost coborât de la Mordechai bin Ibrahim bin Moishe, un negustor evreu, de asemenea, de la Basra. În Nejd, Moishe alăturat tribului Aniza si-a schimbat numele in Markhan bin Ibrahim bin Musa. În cele din urmă, Mordechai a casatorit pe fiul său, Jack Dan, care a devenit Al-Qarn,cu o femeie din tribul Anzah a Nejd. Din această unire, viitorul familiei Saud a fost născut. În cartea lui Said Nasir,” Istoria familiei Saud,” se susține că, în 1943, ambasadorul saudit in Egipt, Abdullah bin Ibrahim Al Muffadal, a plătit pe Muhammad al Tamami pentru a crea un arbore genealogic care arata ca Saud și Wahhab erau o familie care descinde direct de la profetul Mahomed.
La începutul primului război mondial, un ofițer evreu britanic din India, David Shakespeare, s-a întâlnit cu Ibn Saud din Riyadh și a condus mai târziu, o armată saudita, care a învins un trib spre deosebire de Ibn Saud. În 1915, Ibn Saud sa întâlnit cu reprezentantul britanic la regiunea Golfului, Bracey Cocas. Cocas a făcut următoarea ofertă lui Ibn Saud: “Eu cred că aceasta este o garanție pentru rezistenta, deoarece este în interesul Marii Britanii ca evreii sa aiba o patrie și existența, și interesele britanice sunt, prin toate mijloacele, în interesul dumneavoastră.” Ibn Saud, descendent al Dönmeh de la Basra, a răspuns: “Da, în cazul în care recunoașterea mea înseamnă atât de mult pentru tine, recunosc mie de ori acordarea a unei patrii evreilor în Palestina sau de altă natură decât Palestina.” Doi ani mai târziu, secretarul britanic de externe Balfour, într-o scrisoare către baronul Walter Rothschild, un lider al sionistilor britanici, a declarat: “opinia guvernului Maiestății Sale este in favoarea stabilirii în Palestina a unui cămin național pentru poporul evreu.” A avut sprijinul tacit al doi dintre cei mai importanti jucatori din regiune, atât la evrei descendent Dönmeh care a susținut cauza sionista, Kemal Ataturk și Ibn Saud. Situația actuală din Orientul Mijlociu ar trebui să fie văzut în această lumină, dar istoria regiunii a fost stearsa de catre anumite interese politice și religioase, din motive evidente.
După primul război mondial, britanicii au facilitat venirea la putere a regimului Saud în Hejaz fosta provinciile Nejd a Imperiului Otoman. Saud a stabilit wahhabismul ca religie de stat a Regatului nou Arabia Saudită și, la fel ca Dönmeh Kemalist în Turcia, a început să se miște împotriva altor credințe islamice și secte, inclusiv suniți și Shi’a. Saudi Wahhabi au realizat ceea ce Dönmeh Kemalist au fost capabili să realizeze în Turcia: un Orientul Mijlociu, care a fost fracturat dupa modele occidentale imperialiste și a pus bazele pentru crearea statului sionist Israel.
La începutul ’50ies CIA a început să coopereze cu Fratia Musulmana, organizație fondată în Egipt, dar cu fani în întreagul Orientul Mijlociu arab … Acest fapt a semnalat începutul unei alianțe între regimurile tradiționale și mișcări de masă islamice, urmând exemplul Inteligentei britanice și a încercat să folosească islamul pentru a-si promova obiectivul.
Prima a fost perioada în care Marea Britanie folosit Islamul pentru a ajuta la legitimarea dictatorilor marionetă pe care i-au instalat peste coloniile lor arabe,si după primul război mondial a doua etapă a fost o perioadă în care Marea Britanie și America de folosit militantii Islamul extremist , ca o forță pentru a ajuta la răsturnarea de guverne care au încercat să lupte dominația occidentală.
Sprijinul occidental pentru extremiștii Islamului au fost furnizate in mod deschis și a fost acceptat de conducerea mișcărilor islamice fără rezerve “de la Washington. Direct și indirect a trecut cu vederea armare, finanțarea și apărarea grupuri și guverne care duc la violență sectariana a Sauditilor ,aflata in în creștere și tensiunea din mișcările anumitor islamiști , pentru a submina Islamul. Frăția Musulmană a acționat ca o tehnica a inteligentei pentru a recruta agenți provocatori-. Cei din paturile de jos poate cred sincer că apără Islamul, si ca se confruntă “imperialismului occidental”. Cu toate acestea, aceste grupuri teroriste prin intermediul diferitelor facțiuni diferite, ce le reprezinta, fac parte dintr-o rețea unică care servește divizarea și aceeași cauză sectariana ! În ultimii doi ani, de “primăvara arabă” a adus fluxuri de extorcare de fonduri, expunând civilii criminalilor și extremiștilor și o raspandire periculoasa si rapida a sectarismului.
Siria blocheaza ambițiile israeliene,unde Israel vrea să facă rost de petrol arab, chiar daca acesta beneficiaza si de resursele teritoriile ocupate Acesta este unul din motivele pentru Siria a adoptat pozitia de rezistenta astfel de ambiții.

Forțelor internaționale – imperialismului și războiului – au modelat profund statului sirian. Imperialismul a fortat positia Siriei pe o tangentă radical naționalismului arab, în ​​timp ce războaiele care au rezultat, în special cele din 1967,1973 și lupta cu Israelul în Liban, a dus la construirea unui stat de securitate națională. Seale in cele două cărți clasice ilustrează legătura intre schimbarea din interiorul și în afara tarii admirabil: în primul rând, Siria a fost un stat slab, destabilizat și radicalizat de “luptele externe pentru Siria;” în al doilea rând, imaginilor Siria intru prudență realista stabilita de Hafez Al Assad prin războiului din 1967, care a modelat o administrație stabilă necesară pentru a desfășura o “realistă” lupta cu Israelul și “pentru Orientul Mijlociu”,expunand obiectiv Siria amenintarile reale si puternice cu care se confruntă , nu inventate, amenințările externe, si modul in care oamenii săi așteapta ca statul sa o pentru a contracareze. Impactul puternic al mediului extern asupra politicii interne pare subliniat de evoluția sub Bashar al-Asad. El a adoptat o linie dură față de Israel în mijlocul intifadah Al-Aqsa și s-a opus invaziei americane din Irak, aceasta, trezind ostilitatea intensă a americanilor, si a mediului internațional pentru reformele sale economice și unde afacerea Hariri, un produs al luptei pentru Liban era menit să împiedice aderarea la parteneriatul Euro-Med pe care reformatorii sirieni il anuntasera ,preconizand ca aceasta le-ar da peste cap influența înrădăcinata a unor interese anti-reformă . Consecințele au fost desfasurarea de forțe externe , stabilite pentru a continua un puternic impact asupra Siriei, cu lupta reînnoită pentru Liban între proxy-uri siriene și SUA / Arabia și un intens sponsorizat și mass-media suportate Salafi, cum este si regimul taliban pentru a înlocui actuala conducere , cu sprijinul Arabei Saudite ,extins fara succes in a societatea siriena, unde chiar cea mai mare parte a comunității sunnite, un segment de populație sirian care a contrazis așteptările lorzilor razboiului din Vest și care a demonstrat ceea ce Siria este și luptă pentru: o continua lupta împotriva sionismului și a extremismului, un stat secular, care nu poate accepta semințe de răzvrătire și minciuni sectare.

Un obiectiv esențial al politicii SUA dupa războiul Tshreen este obiectivul promis lui Israel prin prezenta politica aSUA, și anume să nu permita arabilor o alta victorie asupra statului Israel. Acesta este motivul pentru această politică a încercat să mențină realitatea Araba neschimbata, mai ales scoaterea Egiptului de pe harta celor ostili , precum și pentru a menține arabii preocupati cu probleme marginale total care nu au legătură cu lupta crucială împotriva ocupației inamicului sionist al teritoriilor Arabe Cu toate acestea, Israelul nu a fost capabil să obțină victorii importante cu agresiunea împotriva arabilor , în schimb a reușit să se infiltreze in economiile din Golf și de a folosi acei bani pentru a finanța interesele sale. Agresiunea Israelului a sfarsit in repetate infrangeri de la războiul din 1973 și prin războiul Tshreen pe frontul sirian care a durat aproape 70 de zile și 1982 războiul din Liban și a avut efecte distructive ulterioare privind prezența statului sionist, în ansamblul ei, așa cum se poate observa – toate au fost legate de Siria. Aceasta este ceea ce Kissinger a spus odată liderului sirian: “Mulțumesc lui Dumnezeu, domnule președinte, că nu sunteți președintele unei superputeri europene, pentru ca atunci Statele Unite ar fi avut reale batai de cap.” Inteligență și maiestria sa i terifia pe dușmanii săi sioniști .De atunci, ei au început o campanie în scopul de a-l demoniza,precum faptul ca ar apartine unei secte ce de fapt nu apartine Islamului,deci nu este musulman – o campanie nu doar împotriva lui, dar împotriva a ceea ce el a creat:.! o puternica armata care dă coșmaruri Israelului sionist.Hafez a fost parte a maselor populare ,mai degraba decat parte a elitei decât elita.. elita lui a fost omul de rând și griji lui erau oamenii de rând.Daca cineva doreste sa-l incadreze neaparat intr-o structuara elitista aceea este a marilor strategi si ganditori ai timpului sau!Continuand acest patern in ultimii doi ani,inca de la începutul crizei siriene ,teroriștii Al Qaeda din Levant ajutati de mass-media occidentala,cei ce se auointituleaza ALS(ASL or FSA) : Armata siriana libera, utilizează moschei pentru a stoca arme, si lunetiști pe poziție, de a lansa atacuri , pentru a complot din interior, a organiza adunări pentru ca atunci can sunt inconjurati sa mineze locul in vederea expodarii acestuia pentru a acuza Armata siriană de atac al unor moschei știind că masele de musulmani ar deveni furioase si demonstrand acest lucru cu filme și desene animate devenite stupide deja.
Aceasta este una dintre acele clipuri in care ei demonstreaza mentorilor din strainatate si clerici lor în actele lor „eroice”.Un cleric, anul trecut, le-a cerut să arunce în aer moschei deoarece ii ajută in a demoniza armata siriană.

Cine sunt cei numiti de către mass-media părtinitoare „minoritatea Alawita ce conduce Siria”, în scopul de a realiza obiectivul lor sectar?
Unii jurnaliști provenind din Europa care au crezut mass-media lor și nu a avut o bună cunoaștere despre Siria a venit cu o idee sedimentata în mintea lor ,precum că Alawite sunt o elită bogata, care este la putere. Un jurnalist danez de la “Politiken” a fost șocat să vad câteva familii din suburbiile din Damasc, cu majoritate Alawi, că acestea sunt sub intermediar. Este un fapt general în zilele noastre și și-l durează din epoca otomană! Ei au fost acuzați că nu au construi moschei ca locuitorii unor arii mai instarite sau ca cei care au avut sprijinul turcilor, de exemplu. Cercetati satele sărace din țările europene care au aflat ce înseamnă invadatori otomani si veti intelege! Nu veți găsi biserici în munții utilizati ca ascunzătoare și adăpost de cei care încearcă să protejeze familiile lor de setea de sânge a ocupanților decat pe alocuri sau deloc! Alaween erau prea săraci pentru a avea bani pentru a construi un loc pentru rugăciuni, o moschee. În timpul președinției lui Hafez al Assad e acolo a început construirea de moschei ,cu sprjin de la stat si in spiritul protejarii cultului Islamic! Ce s-a scris despre asta in media mincinoasa si partinitoare,afiliata sionismului? “Vezi secta nu are moschei in fiecare sat al sau deci nu sunt musulmani!”, Dar uită să spună “un președinte ca bun musulman a dorit să-i ajute!” De ce?

Deși au existat mai multe ramuri șiite-a lungul istoriei, Islamul șiit modern este împărțit în trei ramuri principale. Cea mai mare sectă șiită, în începutul secolului 21 este Ashariyya Ithna denumit în mod obișnuit în limba engleză ca Twelvers (cei doisprezece)în timp ce ramurile mai mici includ Ismaili și Zaidi (“Fivers”) Alaween și druzi, sunt, de asemenea, secte ale islamului siit.
Nu este un secret faptul că musulmanii sunt Alaween dintre cei Doisprezece Ja’fari și ei cred în Allah si Trimisul Lui (pacea asupra lui) și urmați calea Aljenbelania Alkhosaibih-un mod mistic și Kalnqhbandih Refaiya pentru sunniții .. Etc
Doar câțiva sunt cei care a uscris despre destul de Alawi în situații de pace, lasand o parte acele momente tragice nescrise despre ei în sezoanele de sacrificare, când au fost sacrificate în mâinile barbarilor din secolul al XXI-lea .. Printre cei puțini si rari care au scris despre Alawites, este scriitorul și omul politic , Damaschin Munir Sharif, în cartea sa importanta, “Musulmani Alawiti.. cine sunt ei și unde sunt ei?” în prima jumătate a secolului trecut.
Membri notabili ai sectei Alawite au emis deja împreună, cu liderii spirituali, o declarație în luna iulie in 1936 .. printre primii pași concreți de rezistență

Acesta a fost în iulie de 1936. O delegație siriană a mers pentru negocieri la Paris. Un memorandum inaintat in capitala franceza si semnat de peste 200.000 de oameni din muntii Alawite, delegația, cerândrenuntarea la tendintele de secesiune subliniind arabismul și Islamul din care ei fac parte. Multimile din munti au mers la Al-Qardahah în cel mai mare miting de masă, reprezentând 200,000 Alawites de a depune un memoriu, publicat de ziarul Damasc, AL-QABAS, la 30 iulie 1936, privind elucidarea pozitiei acestora ca parte integrantă a țară. Acesta stipula că ” locuitorii din Muntii Alawite sunt musulmani și a urmeaza credința Shiah, una dintre cele cinci credințe ale Islamului, si că nu a existat nici un substitut pentru arabismului său și că” Alawites nu nu vor accepta altfel decat unitatea tarii. Această mulțime a fost condusa de “Aly Sulayman al-Asad, tatăl tanarului Hafiz al-Asad, care a abia implinise 6 ani la momentul respectiv,unde cu o luna inainte de aceasta avusese loc o întâlnire intre tatal celui ce mai tarziu devenea președintele Siriei . Comitetul 10-membru al istoricilor de conducere însărcinate cu scrierea Siria modern al istoriei-profesor Yusuf Zakhur si Dr. Iosif Hajjar au fotocopiat din arhivele franceze documentul , Ministerul de Externe precizând că “Aly Sulayman al-Asad și alți șase, inclusiv Shaykh Salih Al-‘Ali, au fost primii care cereau Franței să întoarcă la patria mama , Latakia (documentul nr 3547, 15 iunie 1936, Ministerul de Externe francez arhive, petiții pct.) Dintre cele mai importante părți ale acestuia: “1 – orice Alawi este. un musulman, crede în cele două testificatii si cei cinci stâlpi ai Islamului. 2 – oricare Alawit care nu se recunoaște ca fiind musulman, și neagă Coranul cel Sfânt ca si cartea Sfânt, și că Muhammad (pacea asupra lui) este Profetul, acelei persoane nu ii va mai fi permisă integrarea în Sharia Alawita, și ii va fi negat orice afiliere cu Alawites musulmani .. etc “, printre semnatarii acestei declarații, care a fost publicat în ziarul Al Qabas al Damaschin, la 27 iulie 1936 a fost Saleh Al Ali Salman (liderul Revoluției împotriva ocupației franceze în munții din Alawites) și Nasser Hakim și Jabir Abbas și Abdul-Karim Imran Ali Mohamed Kamel și .. Etc. Esența acestei declarații a fost repetata în anii cincizeci și șaizeci ai secolului trecut, și a fost semnată de mai mult de o sută de clerici de top.
Primul ce a pus mana pe arma impotriva ocupației franceze (în Siria) este Revolutionarul Sheikh Saleh Ali, semnatar al declarației menționate mai sus, liderul al revoluției Alaween în munții din Alawites în zilele din primăvara anului 1918 , care a continuat pentru mai mult de trei ani și pe care nimic nu a putut-o impiedica! In spiritul acuratatii si corectitudiniii trebuie să menționăm că o mulțime de oameni sunniti din Tartous erau printre liderii acestei revoluții și suporterii săi și multi dintre ele au fost printre eroii care au fost sacrificați de către armata franceză în timp ce apărau solul sirian.
Mr Ihsan Al-Jabiri, cand era guvernator al Latakia,era amenintat de clanul Al-Kinj care a sprijinit puterile franceze ,venind la el să-l pedepsească si pentru a-l amenința personal, dacă el nu oprea animozitatea lui față de Franța.. “Ali Suliman, care a fost prezent, a declarat pentru Ihsan și alte persoane acolo:” Atâta timp cât dreptate este de partea noastra și acest lucru este facut pentru binele țării, eu sunt de partea ta, oamenii mei sunt de partea ta și tot muntele este pe partea ta. In seara asta, voi trimite niște oameni să păzească birourile si locurile ce ar putea fi atacate” Clanului Kinj ii era frică de conflicte civile dar când au văzut 20 de oameni (majoritatea din familia al-Assad) au pariat pe victorie.
Sheikh Hamdan Bin Hussein Khusaibi, Alawite a refuzat alianța cu statul Fatimid din Egipt, în ciuda apropierii sale ideologice vorbind (relativ la doctrina lui al-Jaafari) și a ales proximitatea față de doctrina de stat arab – în Bagdad, formând o alianță islamică cu acesta- statul Abbasid , în ciuda vulnerabilitatii lor și de fragilitatii, cum a fost în Abbasid trecut in etape. Și alianța sa cu ei este ceea ce traducem în realizările lui Seif al-Dawla al-Hamdani în apărarea frontului arab în fața romanilor! Și este de la sine înțeles că relația ce lega Seif al-Dawla al-Hamdani cu Hussein bin Hamdan Al Khusaibi nu are nevoie de o definiție.
Existau date in 1936 despre existența de rivalitati în rândul persoanelor cu motive politice sau personale și motive sociale, dar nici una din aceste date nu a negat faptul că Alaween sunt din Ja’afariun Doisprezece Cele menționate mai sus, incercau construirea unuiconflict între naționaliști (care a refuzat să împartă) și separatiștii care doresc să împartă Siria în funcție de dorința franceza (ca majoritatea opoziției siriene pariată), și, desigur, nimeni nu forțat Alawites inteleptii precum Saleh Ali și Ismail Hawash și Jaber Abbas sa faca aceste declarații de respingere a diviziunii populatiei care indică faptul că sunt musulmani, Alaween depunand mărturii ale credinței lor: Islam și că acestea diferă doar dintr-un punct de vedere ideologic fata suniți și altele,si ca asa cum pentru crestini exista Ortodocsi sau protestanti sau Catolici tot asa Alawitii sunt o parte a Islamului.
Scriitorul Damaschin Munir Sharif a menționat cuvintele respectabilului Sheikh Abdul Latif Nashabeh cleric (tatăl marelui legislator Abdul Wahab Nashabeh), care l-au auzit
în 1930 spunand: ” Alaween sunt musulmani, si nu pot fi dati la o parte de conducători populiștii fara cultura si nici architectura.And Dl Sharif a menționat se precizează exact:” Am făcut turul satelor populate de Alawites în Latakia (Latakia incluzand la acel moment Tartous și Misyaf și Talkalakh Clarificare de la mine:. pe tatăl meu), și nu a mcruțat nici un sat important, dar am vizitat, și am studiat condițiile din aceste grup strâns, în munții și văile lor și campiile , și în acest studiu adecvat, spun: Alaween sunt o parte a Islamului, citesc Coranul cu respect, și de învata indrumarile lui si doresc sa mentionez că am intrat niște case din satele indepartate prin surprindere, și fără ca ei să știe ceva mine și am găsit băieți ocupati în procesul de învățare a Coranului, și că ritualurile lor religioase, sunt ritualuri islamice .. “(Alawites .. Cine sunt ei și unde sunt?
Pp. 107 – Mounir al-Sharif, i 2, tipografia publică în Damasc). Acestea este modul în care a traiau Alawitii incluzând o echitabilă descriere a autorului si nu cum a fost descrisa de cei cu o conștiință pierduta prin tragere la sorți de catre „scriitorii” lui Al-Saud.
Alaween neaga in mod absolut faptul ca ei zeifica persoana lui Ali ibn Abi Talib, și nu sunt de acord cu cei care sustin asta, dar asa cum toate sectele Islamului recunosc,inclusiv cartile sunite,spun ca acesta ar fi fost inzestrat cu puteri speciale de catre divinitate si ceea ce a fost descris, confirma anumite caractere” paranormale” , recunoscute oamenii de știință șiite spre deosebire de Ibn al-‘Arabi, care spune: Dumnezeu este reflectat în piatră, și copaci, și animalele, chiar și in câini .. În cuvintele poetului și savantul Ahmed Hassan Ali; aici trebuie să fie reiterat faptul că Alawites sau Nusayris cum au fost numiti ( in raportul lui Bin Mohammed Naseer) nu sunt o entitate independentă și, astfel, nu sunt legati la o altă doctrină, acestia sunt musulmani, doctrina lor este Ja’fari și modul lor de Junbulanah Khosaibih un alt drept de diviziune sufită sau de altă natură cunoscută a islamului în prezent.
În iulie 1973 Musa al Sadr a declarat că Alawi sunt musulmani si a numit unul dintre ei ca un Muftiu din cei Doisprezece al orasului Tripoli și Libanului de Nord”
Așa cum am menționat mai sus, unii ar putea crede în reîncarnare dar acest lucru nu provine din Shariah, ci un punct de vedere personal,referitor filosofic la viata, desi unii oameni cred că dreptatea divină se aplica direct, fără procesul reîncarnarii, asa cum asistăm la mai multe fenomenele uimitoare în viața noastră publică și auzim despre cei ce vorbesc despre animale anterioare a caror viata au trăit-o.
Istoria de masacre a Turciei împotriva minorităților religioase

Davutoglu susține că Siria este precum Kosovo … uitând istoria țării sale de masacre împotriva armenilor și kurzilor și alawitilor, unde au fost uciși un milion și jumătate de armeni și sute de mii de alawiti și zeci de mii de kurzi, precum și distrugerea satelor în care locuiesc, și încercarea de a schimba harta confesională pentru numeroase regiuni ale alawitilor și kurzilor, mai ales în districtul Iskenderun și orașul Antakya, în timp ce creaza un adevărat „paradis” unic „refugiaților” sirieni desemnati în principal din mediile puritaniste extremiste sunnite apartinand „Fratiei Musulmane”.
Persecuțile anterioare ale alawite in Turcia
Alawitii au apărut în istoria politică a Imperiului Otoman, în AD începutul secolului al XVI-lea, cand acestia au fost acuzați de către Baiazid al II-lea și Sultanan Selim I de credință față de Cefoyen, existand masacre reale în anii 1511 și 1513. Alawitii au dispărut din acel moment pentru o lunga perioada de pe scena politică pana la anuntul facut de de Mustafa Kemal Ataturk alrăzboiului de eliberare națională între 1918 și 1923, care trasa granițele Turciei așa cum este astăzi și a declarat Turcia republica. În ciuda îmbunătățirii semnificative in dezvoltarea comunitatii Alawite din Turcia, Alawitii au continuat prudent, temându-se de autoritati, fiind fortuit ținuti departe de locuri de muncă de top sau ramasi șomeri, în special în cazul în care cei mai multi dintre ele au trăit departe de vestul Turciei și marile orașe, cum ar fi Istanbul și Ankara datorita unor măsuri de deschidere statului fata de islamiștii fundamentalisti care au creat bariere în relație,obligatorii pentru a fi respectate sau riscand a reintoarce la tensiunile initiale .
Temerile Alawite reapărut în perioada guverneleor islamice turce, cu o “politica fundamentalist islamică”, promovată de guverne si de Președinte:
În anii cincizeci :Adnan Menderes și guvernele de coaliție, în care Partidul Islamic de siguranță națională condus de Necmettin
Erbakan în anii șaptezeci, precum și dimensiunea islamică a politicilor primului-ministru, președinte al republicii
Torghout Özal în anii optzeci și începutul anilor nouăzeci.
Sistemul turc, pe de o parte, este strict cu privire la mișcările seculare islamice, în timp ce sistemul în sine este în mișcare, pe de altă parte, catre “mentalitatea extremist sunnita musulman” facand alawitii , să se simtă că sunt cetățeni de clasa a treia sau a zecea . Chiar mai mult, actele de violență au fost practicate împotriva Alawites în aniișaptezeci și prima jumătate a anilor nouăzeci, avand ca pret viața unui număr mare de civili și există cei ce arata catre complicitatea forțelor de securitate în aceste masacre.
Alawitii din Turcia nu sunt o minoritate
Secta Alawite reprezintă un caz unic și ambiguu în relațiile sale cu sistemul secular ca și în relațiile sale cu majoritatea (relativa) sunnita. Nu este corecta clasificarea blocului Alawite ca “minoritate” în lumina estimărilor care indică faptul că numărul de alawiti în Turcia este de aproape 20 milioane, distribuite în principal pe trei etnii: arabi, kurzi și turci,toti de credinta alawita musulmana,deși există unele diferențe minore în practicile lor, dar inradacinate la principiile urmate Imam Ali, pacea fie asupra lui și de preferința acestuia pentru toate creaturile, după Profetul Muhammad, pacea fie asupra lui.
Stramosii lui Erdogan si armenii

Pe 24 aprilie, în 1914, a avut loc arestarea a mai mult de 250 de demnitari armeni in Istanbul. După aceea, armata otomană a procedat intru expulzarea armenilor din casele lor și i-a forțat să mărșăluiască sute de kilometri în deșert si in a ceea ce este acum Siria, lipsiți de hrană și apă, masacrele au fost aleatorii și mulți au fost uciși, indiferent de vârstă sau sex, femeile au fost violate și abuzate sexual. Astăzi majoritatea armenilor în comunitățile din diaspora sunt rezultatul genocidului comis împotriva lor de către stramosii lui Erdogan. Statul otoman, în mod deliberat și sistematic, a ucis populații armene în timpul și după Primul Război Mondial, puse in aplicare prin masacre și deportări, transfer forțat, reprezintand marșuri în condiții dure menite să ducă la moartea celor deportați. Cercetatorii estimeaza ca numarul victimelor armene este cuprins între 1 milion și 1,5 milioane de persoane.
Crestinii au suferit , de asemenea, din cauza atacurilor și crimelor comise de către Imperiul Otoman, inclusiv asirienii / siriacii / caldeenii, printr-o serie de operațiuni militare lansate de forțele regulate ale statului otoman care au dus la moartea a sute de mii dintre ei. Ei au fost, de asemenea, de asemenea, strămutati din zonele de origine, într sud-estul Turciei și Iranului de nord-vest. Aceste masacre care au vizat în siriacii sunt numite masacrele Sipho și sunt, de asemenea, cunoscute sub numele de masacrele asiriene și oamenii de știință estimează că numărul de siriaci / Asirieni, victime este între 250.000 și 500.000.
Nu grecii au fost cruțați de otomani , unde Guvernul „Tinerilor Turci „ instigau Imperiul Otoman “la violență împotriva minorității grecești din Pontul Abanntih și în alte zone locuite de minoritatea greacă. Încercarea de a evita campania de masacre, si o o amplă campanie criminala împotriva acestor minorități le-au fortat sa plece si sa traiasca în exil. Numărul de victime, conform unor surse este de aproximativ o jumătate de milion.
Wayne Madsen a scris pentru „Strategic culture foundation”:
Există un monstru ascuns în fundalul fiecarui incident grav ,militar și diplomatic care implică Israel, Turcia, Iran, Arabia Saudită, Irak, Grecia, Armenia, kurzii, asirieni, și unii jucători din alte tari ale Orientului Mijlociu și Europa de sud-est. Acesta este un factor care este, în general, este doar șoptit la receptii diplomatice , conferințe de presă, și sesiuni secrete datorită factorului exploziv și naturii controversate a subiectului ,despre defalcarea curentă în relațiile dintre Israel și Turcia sau dintre Israel și Arabia Saudită, și ura in creștere intre Arabia Saudită și Iran …
Deși cunoscut istoricilor și experților in domenii religioase, influența veche de secole (politică și economică) a unui grup cunoscut in Turcia “Dönmeh” este arar discutat de turci, arabi, israelieni și care au fost reticenți în a discuta despre prezența în Turcia și în altă parte a unei secte de turci coborât dintr-un grup de evrei sefarzi care au fost expulzați din Spania în timpul Inchiziției spaniole, în secolele 16 și 17.

Creșterea Dönmeh la putere în Turcia &Turcia modernă: un stat controlat de sionistii Dönmeh
Dönmeh mulți, împreună cu evreii tradiționale, au devenit lideri puternici politice și de afaceri din Salonic. Acesta a fost un grup de bază de Dönmeh, care a organizat secrete intalniri ale turcilor, de asemenea, cunoscut sub numele de Comitetul pentru Uniune și Progres
Ataturk a fost suspectat de rădăcini puternice sioniste, existand informații suprimate timp de decenii de guvernul turc, care a interzis orice critică a fondatorului Turciei moderne, a început abordate, în primul rând, cea mai mare parte ,in afara de Turciei și în publicațiile scrise de autori evrei. Cartea din 1973, „Evreii secreti”, scrisa de rabinul Joachim Prinz, se susține că Ataturk și Ministrul sau de finante Djavid Bey, au fost atât Dönmeh .
Sprijinul „Tinerilor Turci” pentru sionism si crearea unei „ patrii a evreilor” în Palestina, după primul război mondial și în timpul regimului nazist în Europa a fost în creștere și a propulsat Turcia catre Israel și vice-versa . Un articol din Forward din 8 mai 2007, a relevat faptul că Dönmeh dominat de conducere turcesc “, de la președinte în jos, precum și diplomații cheie. . . și o mare parte a elitelor militare ale Turciei, culturale, academice, economice, profesionale și ” a ținut Turcia ferita deun război mondial in alianță cu Germania, și l-a impiedicat pe Hitler in drumul spre campurile petroliere de la Baku.”
Israelul a fost întotdeauna reticent în a descrie masacrul armenilor din Turcia de către turci în 1915, unde motivul pentru reticența sa au fost legăturile strânse militare și diplomatice cu Turcia si genocidul in sine,existand mai multe dovezi descoperite ce arata ca genocidul armean a fost în mare măsură rezultat din activitatea de conducere a Dönmeh ,”Tinerii Turci”. Istoricii, cum ar fi Ahmed Refik, care a servit ca ofițer de informații în armata otomană, a afirmat că acesta a fost scopul Tinerilor Turci de a distruge armenii, care au fost în mare parte creștini. Ei sub conducerea lui Ataturk, au expulzat, de asemenea, creștinii greci din orașele turcești și a încercat să comită un genocid la scară mai mica asupra asirienilor, care erau, de asemenea, în principal, creștini.
CIA -ul American, împreună cu MI6, omologul lor britanic, a reușit să prezinte Frăția Musulmana în mod fals ca „apărători „ ai Islamului corect, în timp ce ei erau de fapt agenti de anti-Islam pe ordinea de zi, de bună voie in generat și fără voie, în foarte puține cazuri. Prin organizarea deplasării lor, finanțarea acesteia, antrenându-i și prin mediatizarea acestora, CIA si MI6 a reușit să prezinte în cele din urmă, după zeci de ani de pregatire,, agenții lor in lumina de conducători ai islamului, preluand controlul unor țări arabe importante din Africa de Nord precum Egipt, Tunisia, Libia și împingându-i în Levant in Siria, Iordania, Irak, Liban recent, apoi Yemen si în peninsula arabă și, desigur, tarile Golfului Persic ,unde Otomanii au încercat să se împrumute practicile occidentale și distorsionand Islamul adevarat si pentru ca Siria a ramas o piedica in ducerea la bun sfarsit a acestui plan diabolic ,natiunea Siriana a devenit o tinta .

Majoritatea poporului sirian trăieste o viața modern și refuză să mărșăluiască înapoi în sânul islamismului radical, care degradeaza drepturile minorităților și încearcă să impună normele sale în Siria și in compararea cu alte state arabe, conducătorii din Damasc au fost în măsură să fereasca controlul sionist asupra economiei precum si protejarea fata de impusa ajustarea structurală interna de catre FMI, într-un sistem economic unic, unde partenerii din sectorul privat conlucreaza cu cei reprezentati de stat și unde care o armată profesionistă de sirieni aparținând tuturor religiilor sau sectelor a fost creat pentru a apăra granițele țării dar a fost forțata să intervină în combaterea focarelor terorismului create in interiorul granitelor , terorism răspândit de către cei ce respecta si ingrijesc semintele plantate de otomani și de catre ocupația franceză! Sunt oare reale pretențiile unor „virusi raspanditori de moarte si razboi” imperialist sustinute de realitate? Sunt cei ce apartin segmentului majoritar depre care ei mint,someri si marginalizati sau sunt prezente în toate domeniile si cele mai inalte functii de stat instituții și cele mai înalte poziții, trecand de toate limitele definițiilor sectare (spre deosebire de Turcia,de exempl,sau Arabia Saudita sau Qatar)? Știați că cei mai multi dintre soldații din Siria sunt sunniți, deoarece ei sunt fiii acestui pământ și nu mercenari străini ca in alte armate? Și că cele mai înalte poziții ministeriale sunt ocupate de sunniți ? Iată câteva fapte:

Din 1970, ministrul sirian al apărării Ministrul sirian Prim, ministrul sirian de Interne, au fost întotdeauna sunnită.
Șeful Statului Major sirian a fost întotdeauna sunni sau creștin (cum ar fi General Daoud Rajha care a fost martirizat în bombardarea sediul Securității Naționale);
Seful Directiei Generale de Informatii Siriene (GID) General Ali Mamlouk este sunni;
Directorul general al Radio Televiziunii Siriene,Syrian TV a fost întotdeauna sunni.
Când au vizat Alep, unul dintre primele victime au fost clanul Berri, cetățeni sunni care a sustinut unitatea și a fost împotriva „revolutiei”! Toți imami sunni care a refuzat să se alăture hegemoniei au devenit ținte sau platit cu viata lor sau cu viețile celor dragi ,ca Marele Muftiu fiul lui Sariya Hassoun și Muftiu al Alep, Mahmud `Akkam Acesta este discursul Muft Grand la funeraliile Sariya:. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Ila4kTP24Y

În Damasc, asasinat de bandele armate: Sheikh Mohammad Ahmad ouf Sadeq, un imam de la moscheea Anas ,preot islamic Malek un grup armat interceptat vehiculul în Qadam Assali, în cartierul Al-Bweideh, la Damasc Countryside cand acesta se intorcea in capitala.Imam Sadeq a condamnat cu fermitate atacul terorist pe 6 ianuarie, în al-Midan și a militat pentru unitate națională era doctorand în Sharia (legea islamică).
Preotul Fadi Haddad Teroriștii – Pastor al Bisericii Mar Elias pentru Roman Ortodoxă din Qatana în Damasc, după zile de la răpire sa.
O sursă de la Patriarhia Ortodoxă la Damasc a declarat că trupul preotului Fadi Haddad a fost găsit în apropierea zonei Drousha pe autostrada Damasc-Quneitra.
Sursa a remarcat faptul că teroriștii din orașul Artouz au comis aceasta oribila fapta deoarece el dorea eliberarea unei persoane răpita si scoaterea acesteia din mâinile teroriștilor.
Și când teroristii au distrus vechea piață din Alep, au întrebat ei oare despre secta proprietarului? Când au viza barierele de securitate, au intrebat ei in prealabil secta acelor soldati?

Și cum se face că toți extremiștii “revoluționari” sunt sprijiniti de Frăția Musulmană și hegemonia Salafista si coincid întotdeauna cu invaziile diferite de pe ordinea de zi israeliana?
Chiar crezi că o divizată si sectara “opoziție” externa cu un program anti-stat, anti-teritorial, construind planurile de reformă anti-rurale și anti sociale, având ca țintă numai ocuparea de locuri de pe scena politică susținută de oligarhie și de petrodolari, împotriva sectoarelor de populare ar putea reuși?
Amintiți-vă că subiectul este Siria-o națiune independentă din cele mai vechi timpuri, un tip națională adevărată de înrădăcinare la fiecare inimă a cetățenilor săi, care a fost dezvoltat de-a lungul secolelor și pozitioneaza Siria, în zilele noastre ,ca inima de combatere a luptei impotriva sionismului!

Syrian Information Minister: “No power in the World can defeat Syria’s Army and People”.

LATTAKIA, (SANA) – Minister of Information Omran al-Zoubi said on Monday that no power in the whole world can defeat Syria thanks to its people and army.

In a lecture at the Science Faculty in Tishreen University on the occasion of the 39th anniversary of the Corrective Movement, al-Zoubi said, “We believe in Syria. Syria’s enemies inside and abroad don’t know that our connection to our country is permanent and eternal”.

He stressed that the 7000-year old Syria can’t be defeated by any power.

“The Corrective Movement, which was led by late President Hafez al-Assad devoted our belief in our people and army,” al-Zoubi said.

Minister al-Zoubi said that there are acts that aim at sabotaging the Syrian society and its structure, adding that the Syrian people are united not just co-existing.

He noted that…

Friends of Syria

The ‘Friends of Syria’ (not us we were here long before) which was founded in the USA who have been meeting in Qatar to find a new Leader to be the opposition leader in Syria have chosen a Muslim Cleric Moaz al-Khatib. He has been chosen by the USA, UK, France, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Turkey, Al Qaeda and all the other enemies of Syria. Voted on by countries outside Syria. The same people who are funding and supplying weapons to kill the innocent people of Syria. The very same people who are murdering and butchering innocent people on a daily basis expect the Syrian people to vote for them. Are they crazy, because that is what Freedom and Democracy means.

This group plans on killing themselves to power. Is this what they call Democracy??? They have made it quite clear who is voting for them and it is not anyone inside…

Exclusive interview with RT: Mr.President Bashar Assad

Exclusive interview with RT: Mr.President Bashar Assad


الأسد:اردوغان يعتقد شخصيا انه السلطان العثماني الجديد

‘I’m not Western puppet – I live and die in Syria’ (EXCLUSIVE)

In an exclusive interview with RT, President Bashar Assad said that the conflict in Syria is not a civil war, but proxy terrorism by Syrians and foreign fighters. He also accused the Turkish president of eyeing Syria with imperial ambitions.
Assad told RT that the West creates scapegoats as enemies – from communism, to Islam, to Saddam Hussein. He accused Western countries of aiming to turn him into their next enemy.
While mainstream media outlets generally report on the crisis as a battle between Assad and Syrian opposition groups, the president claims that his country has been infiltrated by numerous terrorist proxy groups fighting on behalf of other powers.
In the event of a foreign invasion of Syria, Assad warned, the fallout would be too dire for the world to bear.
‘My enemy is terrorism and instability in Syria’
RT: President Bashar al-Assad of Syria, thank very much for talking to us today.
Bashar Assad: You are most welcome in Damascus.
RT:There are many people who were convinced a year ago that you would not make it this far. Here again you are sitting in a newly renovated presidential palace and recording this interview. Who exactly is your enemy at this point?
BA: My enemy is terrorism and instability in Syria. This is our enemy in Syria. It is not about the people, it is not about persons. The whole issue is not about me staying or leaving. It is about the country being safe or not. So, this is the enemy we have been fighting as Syria.
RT:I have been here for the last two days and I had the chance to talk to a couple of people in Damascus. Some of them say that whether you stay or go at this point does not really matter anymore. What do you say about this?
BA: I think for the president to stay or leave is a popular issue. It is related to the opinion of some people and the only way can be done through the ballot boxes. So, it is not about what we hear. It is about what we can get through that box and that box will tell any president to stay or leave very simply.
RT:I think what they meant was that at this point you are not the target anymore; Syria is the target.
BA: I was not the target; I was not the problem anyway. The West creates enemies; in the past it was the communism then it became Islam, and then it became Saddam Hussein for a different reason. Now, they want to create a new enemy represented by Bashar. That’s why they say that the problem is the president so he has to leave. That is why we have to focus of the real problem, not to waste our time listening to what they say.
‘The fight now is not the president’s fight – it is Syrians’ fight to defend their country’
RT: Do you personally still believe that you are the only man who can hold Syria together and the only man who can put an end to what the world calls a ‘civil war’?
BA: We have to look at it from two aspects. The first aspect is the constitution and I have my authority under the constitution. According to this authority and the constitution, I have to be able to solve the problem. But if we mean it that you do not have any other Syrian who can be a president, no, any Syrian could be a president. We have many Syrians who are eligible to be in that position. You cannot always link the whole country only to one person.
RT:But you are fighting for your country. Do you believe that you are the man who can put an end to the conflict and restore peace?
BA: I have to be the man who can do that and I hope so, but it is not about the power of the President; it is about the whole society. We have to be precise about this. The president cannot do anything without the institutions and without the support of the people. So, the fight now is not a President’s fight; it is Syrians’ fight. Every Syrian is involved in defending his country now.
RT: It is and a lot of civilians are dying as well in the fighting. So, if you were to win this war, how would you reconcile with your people after everything that has happened?
BA: Let’s be precise once again. The problem is not between me and the people; I do not have a problem with the people because the United States is against me and the West is against me and many other Arab countries, including Turkey which is not Arab of course, are against me. If the Syrian people are against me, how can I be here?!

Bashar Assad speaking with RT’s Sophie Shevardnadze
Syria faces not a civil war, but terrorism by proxies’
RT:They are not against you?
BA: If the whole world, or let us say a big part of the world, including your people, are against you, are you a superman?! You are just a human being. So, this is not logical. It is not about reconciling with the people and it is not about reconciliation between the Syrians and the Syrians; we do not have a civil war. It is about terrorism and the support coming from abroad to terrorists to destabilize Syria. This is our war.
RT: Do you still not believe it is a civil war because I know there are a lot who think that there are terrorist acts which everyone believes take place in Syria, and there are also a lot of sectarian-based conflicts. For example we all heard about the mother who has two sons; one son is fighting for the government forces and the other son is fighting for the rebel forces, how this is not a civil war?
BA: You have divisions, but division does not mean civil war. It is completely different. Civil wars should be based on ethnic problems or sectarian problems. Sometimes you may have ethnic or sectarian tensions but this do not make them problem. So, if you have division in the same family or in a bigger tribe or whatever or in the same city, it does not mean a civil war. This is completely different and that is normal. We should expect that.
RT:When I asked about reconciling with your people, this is what I meant: I heard you say on many different occasions that the only thing you care about is what the Syrian people think of you and what Syrian people feel towards you and whether you should be a president or not. Are you not afraid that there has been so much damage done for whatever reason that at the end of the day Syrians won’t care about the truth; they will just blame you for the carnage that they have suffered?
BA:This is a hypothetical question because what the people think is the right thing, and regarding what they think, we have to ask them. But I don’t have this information right now. So, I am not afraid about what some people think; I am afraid about my country. We have to be focused on that.
RT:For years there have been so many stories about almighty Syrian army, important and strong Syrian secret services, but then we see that, you know, the government forces are not able to crush the enemy like people expected it would, and we see terrorist attacks take place in the middle of Damascus almost every day. Were those myths about the Syrian army and about the strong Syrian secret services?
BA: Usually, in normal circumstances when you have the army and the secret services and the intelligence, we focus on the external enemy even if we have an internal enemy, like terrorism because the society is helping us at least not to provide terrorist’s incubator. Now in this case, it is a new kind of war; terrorism through proxies, either Syrians living in Syria or foreign fighters coming from abroad. So, it is a new style of war, this is first and you have to adapt to this style and it takes time, it is not easy. And to say this is as easy as the normal or, let us say, the traditional or regular war, no, it is much more difficult. Second, the support that has been offered to those terrorists in every aspect, including armaments, money and political aspect is unprecedented. So, you have to expect that it is going to be a tough war and a difficult war. You do not expect a small country like Syria to defeat all those countries that have been fighting us through proxies just in days or weeks.
RT:Yes, but when you look at it, I mean on one hand, you have one leader with an army, and he orders this army go straight, go left, go right and the army obeys. On the other hand, you have fractions of terrorists who are not unified and have no one unified strategy to fight you. So, how does that really happen when it comes to fighting each other?
BA: This is not the problem. The problem is that those terrorists are fighting from within the cities, and in the cities you have civilians. When you fight this kind of terrorists, you have to be aware that you should do the minimum damage to the infrastructure and minimum damage to the civilians because you have civilians and you have to fight, you cannot leave terrorists just killing and destroying. So, this is the difficulty in this kind of war.

Bashar Assad speaking with RT’s Sophie Shevardnadze
Without foreign rebel fighters and smuggled weapons, ‘we could finish everything in weeks’
RT: You know that the infrastructure and economy are suffering; it is almost as if Syria is going to be fall into decay very soon and the time is against you. In your opinion, how much time do you need to crush the enemy?
BA: You cannot answer this question because no one claimed that he had the answer about when to end the war unless when we have the answer to when they are going to stop smuggling foreign fighters from different parts of the world especially the Middle East and the Islamic world, and when they are going to stop sending armaments to those terrorists. If they stop, this is when I can answer you; I can tell that in weeks we can finish everything. This is not a big problem. But as long as you have continuous supply in terrorists, armaments, logistics and everything else, it is going to be a long-term war.
RT:Also, when you think about it, you have 4,000 km of loosely controlled borders, so you have your enemy that can at any time cross over into Jordan or Turkey to be rearmed, get medical care and come back to fight you!
BA: No country in the world can seal the border. Sometime they use this word which is not correct, even the United Stated cannot seal its border with Mexico for example. The same can be applied to Russia which is a big country. So, no country can seal the border. You can only have a better situation on the border when you have good relations with your neighbor and this is something we do not have at least with Turkey now. Turkey supports more than any other country the smuggling of terrorists and armaments.

Bashar Assad speaking with RT’s Sophie Shevardnadze
‘The Syrian Army has no orders to shell Turkish land’
RT: Can I say to you something? I have been in Turkey recently and people there are actually very worried that a war will happen between Syria and Turkey. Do you think a war with Turkey is a realistic scenario?
BA: Rationally, no I do not think so – for two reasons. The war needs public support and the majority of the Turkish people do not need this war. So, I do not think any rational official would think of going against the will of the public in his country and the same for the Syrian people. So, the conflict or difference is not between the Turkish people and the Syrian people; it is about the government and officials, it is between our officials and their officials because of their politics. So, I do not see any war between Syria and Turkey on the horizon.
RT: When was the last time you spoke to Erdogan and how did the talk end?
BA: May 2011, after he won the election.
RT: So, you just congratulated him, and it was the last time
BA: Yes and it was the last time.
RT:Who is shelling Turkey? Is it the government forces or the rebels?
BA: In order to find the answer, you need a joint committee between the two armies in order to know who shells who because on the borders you have a lot of terrorists who have mortars; so, they can do the same. You have to go and investigate the bomb in that place itself and that did not happen. We asked the Turkish government to have this committee but they refused; so, you cannot have the answer. But when you have these terrorists on your borders, you do not exclude them from doing so because the Syrian army does not have any order to shell the Turkish land because we do not find any interest in this, and we do not have any enmity with the Turkish people. We consider them as brothers, so why do it; unless that happened by mistake, then it needs investigation.
RT:Do you accept that it may be mistakenly from the government forces?
BA: That could happen. This is a possibility and in every war you have mistakes. You know in Afghanistan, they always talk about friendly fire if you kill your soldier; this means that it could happen in every war, but we cannot say yes.

Bashar Assad speaking with RT’s Sophie Shevardnadze
‘Erdogan thinks he is a Caliph’
RT:Why has Turkey, which you call a friendly nation, become a foothold for the opposition?
BA: Not Turkey, but only Erdogan’s government in order to be precise. Turkish people need good relations with the Syrian people. Erdogan thinks that if Muslim Brotherhood takes over in the region and especially in Syria, he can guarantee his political future, this is one reason. The other reason, he personally thinks that he is the new sultan of the Ottoman and he can control the region as it was during the Ottoman Empire under a new umbrella. In his heart he thinks he is a caliph. These are the main two reasons for him to shift his policy from zero problems to zero friends.
RT:But it is not just the West that opposes you at this point; there are so many enemies in the Arab world and that is to say like two years ago when someone heard you name in the Arab world they would straighten their ties, and now in the first occasion they betrayed you, why do you have so many enemies in the Arab world?
BA: They are not enemies. The majority of Arab governments support Syria in their heart but they do not dare to say that explicitly.
RT: Why not?
BA: Under pressure by the West, and sometimes under pressure of the petrodollars in the Arab world.
RT:Who supports you from the Arab world?
BA: Many countries support Syria by their hearts but they do not dare to say that explicitly. First of all, Iraq which played a very active role in supporting Syria during the crisis because it is a neighboring country and they understand and recognize that if you have a war inside Syria you will have war in the neighboring countries including Iraq. I think there are other countries which have good position like Algeria, and Oman mainly and there are other countries I would not count all of them now but I would say they have positive position without taking actions.
RT: Saudi Arabia and Qatar, why are they so adamant about you resigning and how would an unstable Middle East fit their agenda?
BA: Let’s be frank, I cannot answer on their behalf. They have to answer this question but I could say that the problem between Syria and many countries whether in the Arab world or in the region or in the West, is that we kept saying no when we think that we have to say no, that is the problem. And some countries believe that they can control Syria through orders, through money or petrodollars and this is impossible in Syria, this is the problem. May be they want to play a role. We do not have a problem, they can play a role whether they deserve this or not, they can play a role but not to play a role at the expense of our interests.
RT: Is it about controlling Syria or about exporting their vision of Islam to Syria?
BA: You cannot put it as a government policy sometimes. Sometimes you have institutions in certain country, sometime you have persons who try to promote this but they do not announce it as an official policy. So, they did not ask us to promote their, let’s say, extremist attitude of their institutions but that happened in reality whether through indirect support of their government or through the foundation from institutions and personnel. So, this is part of the problem, but when I want to talk as a government, I have to talk about the announced policy. The announced policy is like any other policy; it is about the interest, it is about playing a role, but we cannot ignore what you mentioned.
RT:Iran which is a very close ally also is exposed to economic sanctions, also facing a threat of military invasion. If you were faced with an option to cut ties with Iran in exchange for peace in your country, would you go for it?
BA: We do not have contradicting options in this regard because we had good relations with Iran since 1979 till today, and it is getting better every day, but at the same time we are moving towards peace. We had peace process and we had peace negotiations. Iran was not a factor against peace. So, this is misinformation they try to promote in the West that if we need peace, we do not have to have good relation with Iran. There is no relation; it is two completely different subjects. Iran supported Syria, supported our cause, the cause of the occupied land and we have to support them in their cause. This is very simple. Iran is a very important country in the region. If we are looking for stability, we need good relations with Iran. You cannot talk about stability while you have bad relations with Iran, Turkey and your neighbors and so on. This is it.

Bashar Assad speaking with RT’s Sophie Shevardnadze
‘Al-Qaeda’s final aim is an Islamic emirate in Syria’
RT:Do you have any information that the Western intelligence is financing rebel fighters here in Syria?
BA: No, so far what we know is that they are offering the know-how support for the terrorists through Turkey and sometimes through Lebanon mainly. But there is other intelligence, not the Western, but the regional intelligence which is very active and more active than the Western one under the supervision of the Western intelligence.
RT: What is the role of Al-Qaeda in Syria at this point? Are they controlling any of the rebel coalition forces?
BA: No, I do not think they are looking to control; they are looking to create their own kingdoms or emirates in their language, but they mainly try now to scare the people through explosions, assassinations, suicide bombers and things like this to push the people towards desperation and to accept them as reality. So, they go step by step but their final aim is to have this, let’s say, Islamic Emirate in Syria where they can promote their own ideology in the rest of the world.
RT: From those who are fighting you and those who are against you, who would you talk to?
BA: We talk to anyone who has genuine will to help Syria, but we do not waste our time with anyone who wants to use our crisis for his own personal interests.
RT:There has been many times…not you but the government forces have been accused for many times of war crimes against your own civilians, do you accept that the government forces have committed war crimes against their own civilians?
BA: We are fighting terrorism. We are implementing our constitution by protecting the Syrian people. Let’s go back to what happened in Russia more than a decade ago when you faced terrorism in Chechnya and other places; they attacked people in theaters and schools and so on, and the army in Russia protected the people, would you call it war crimes?! No, you would not. Two days ago, Amnesty International recognized the crimes that were committed few days ago by the armed groups when they captured soldiers and executed them. Also Human Rights Watch recognized this. Human Rights Watch recognized more than once the crimes of those terrorist groups and few days ago it described these crimes as war crimes, this is the first point. The second point, if you have an army that committed a crime against its own people, this is devoid of logic because the Syrian Army is made up of Syrian people. If you want to commit a crime against your people, then the army will divide, will disintegrate. So, you cannot have a strong army while you are killing your people. Third, the army cannot withstand for twenty months in these difficult circumstances without having the embrace of the public in Syria. So, how could you have this embracement while you are killing your people?! This is a contradiction. So, this is the answer.

‘I must live in Syria and die in Syria’
RT: When was the last time you spoke to a Western leader?
BA: It was before the crisis.
RT:Was there any time at which they try to give you conditions that if you left the post of presidency then there will be peace in Syria or no?
BA: No, they did not propose it directly, no, but whether they propose that directly or indirectly, it is a matter of sovereignty; only the Syrian people will talk about this. Whoever talks about this in the media or in a statement directly or indirectly has no meaning and has no weight in Syria.
RT: Do you even have a choice because from what it seems from the outside that would not have anywhere to go. Where would you go if you want to leave?
BA: To Syria. I would go from Syria to Syria. This is the only place where we can live. I am not a puppet. I was not made by the West to go to the West or to any other country. I am Syrian, I was made in Syria, I have to live in Syria and die in Syria.
‘I believe in democracy and dialogue – but we must be realistic’
RT: Do you think that at this point there is any chance for diplomacy or talks or only the army can get it done?
BA: I always believe in diplomacy and I always believe in dialogue even with those who do not understand or believe in it. We have to keep trying. I think that we will always achieve a partial success. We have to look for this partial success before we achieve the complete success. But we have to be realistic. You do not think that only dialogue can make you achieve something because those people who committed these acts they are of two kinds: one of them does not believe in dialogue, especially the extremists, and you have the outlaws who have been convicted by the court years ago before the crisis and their natural enemy is the government because they are going to be detained if we have a normal situation in Syria. The other part of them is the people who have been supplied by the outside, and they can only be committed to the governments which paid them the money and supplied them with the armament; they do not have a choice because they do not own their own decision. So, you have to be realistic. And you have the third part of the people whether militants or politicians who can accept the dialogue. That’s why we have been in this dialogue for months now even with militants and many of them gave up their armaments and they went back to their normal life.

Bashar Assad speaking with RT’s Sophie Shevardnadze
‘The price of a foreign invasion will be more than the world can afford’
RT:Do you think a foreign invasion is imminent?
BA: I think the price of this invasion if it happened is going to be more than the whole world can afford because if you have a problem in Syria, and we are the last stronghold of secularism and stability in the region and coexistence, let’s say, it will have a domino effect that will affect the world from the Atlantic to the Pacific and you know the implication on the rest of the world. I do not think the West is going in that direction, but if they do so, nobody can tell what is next.
RT: Mr. President, do you blame yourself for anything?
BA: Normally you have to find mistakes you do with every decision, otherwise you are not human.
RT: What is your biggest mistake?
BA: I do not remember now to be frank. But I always, even before taking the decision, consider that part of it will be wrong but you cannot tell about your mistakes now. Sometimes, especially during crisis, you do not see what is right and what is wrong until you overcome the situation that you are in. I would not be objective to talk about mistakes now because we still in the middle of the crisis.
RT:So, you do not have regrets yet?
BA: Not now. When everything is clear, you can talk about your mistakes, and definitely you have mistakes and that is normal.
RT:If today was March 15, 2011, that is when the protest started to escalate and grow, what would you do differently?
BA: I would do what I did on March 15.
RT: Exactly the same?
BA: Exactly the same: ask different parties to have dialogue and stand against terrorists because that is how it started. It did not start as marches; the umbrella or cover was the marches, but within those marches you had militants who started shooting civilians and the army at the same time. May be on the tactical level, you could have done something different but as a president you are not tactical, you always take the decision on a strategic level which is something different.
RT: President al-Assad, how do you see yourself in ten-years’ time?
BA: I see myself through my country; I cannot see myself but my country in ten-years’ time. This is where I can see myself.
RT: Do you see yourself in Syria?
BA: Definitely, I have to be in Syria. It is not about the position. I do not see myself whether a president or not. This is not my interest. I can see myself in this country as safe country, stable country and more prosperous country.
RT:President Bashar al-Assad of Syria, thank you for talking to RT.
BA: Thank you for coming to Syria, again.
الرئيس الأسد لـ”روسيا اليوم”: كلفة الغزو الأجنبي لسورية ستكون أكبر من ان يستطيع العالم بأسره تحملها

الرئيس الأسد لـ”روسيا اليوم”: كلفة الغزو الأجنبي لسورية ستكون أكبر من ان يستطيع العالم بأسره تحملها
الرئيس الأسد ل”روسيا اليوم”: أنا لست دمية، أنا سوري، علىّ أن أعيش وأموت في سورية
أدلى الرئيس السوري بحديث خاص لقناة “روسيا اليوم” تطرق فيه الى آخر المستجدات في الملف السوري وقدم رؤيته الى مستقبل بلاده والمنطقة.

نص المقابلة التي أجراها القسم الإنكليزي في تلفزيون روسيا اليوم مع السيد الرئيس بشار الأسد:

روسيا اليوم: الرئيس بشار الأسد، شكرا لمنحكم هذه المقابلة لمحطة “روسيا اليوم”

أهلا وسهلا بكم في دمشق.

روسيا اليوم: كثيرون كانوا مقتنعين قبل عام مضى بأنكم لن تصمدوا حتى هذا الوقت. رغم ذلك، فها نحن نجلس اليوم في القصر الرئاسي، بعد تجديده، ونسجل هذه المقابلة. من هم أعداؤكم في هذه اللحظة؟

عدونا هو الإرهاب وعدم الاستقرار في سورية. هذا هو عدونا. الأمر لايتعلق بالأشخاص. المسألة لا تتعلق ببقائي أو رحيلي، بل تتعلق بأن يكون البلد آمنأ أو غير آمن. هذا هو العدو الذي نقاتله كسوريين.

روسيا اليوم: لقد مضى على وجودي هنا يومان، وأتيحت لي الفرصة للتحدث مع بعض الناس في دمشق. بعضهم يقول أن بقاءك أو عدم بقائك في هذه اللحظة لم يعد مهماً. مارأيكم في ذلك؟

أعتقد أن مسألة بقاء الرئيس أو رحيله مسألة تعود إلى الشعب، وليست مسألة تتعلق برأي البعض. والطريقة الوحيدة تتم من خلال صناديق الاقتراع. إذأ المسألة لا تتعلق بما نسمعه، بل بما ينجم عن صناديق الاقتراع، وتلك النتائج هي التي تحدد ما إذا كان ينبغي على الرئيس البقاء أو الرحيل، ببساطة.

روسيا اليوم: أعتقد أن ما أرادوا قوله هو أنك لم تعد أنت المستهدف. بل سورية هي المستهدفة؟

لم أكن أنا المستهدف منذ البداية، ولم أكن أنا المشكلة بأي حال من الأحوال الغرب يخلق الأعداء دائمأ. في الماضي كان العدو هو الشيوعية، ومن ثم أصبح الإسلام، ثم صدام حسين، ولأسباب مختلفة، والأن يريدون أن يخلقوا عدواً جديداً يتمثل في بشار، ولهذا يقولون أن المشكلة تكمن في الرنيس، وأن عليه أن يرحل. ولهذا السبب علينا أن نركز على المشكلة الحقيقية وألا نضيع وقتنا فى الإصغاء لما يقولونه.

روسيا اليوم: لكن هل مازلت تعتقد، شخصيا، بأنك الرجل الوحيد الذي يمكن أن يحافظ على سورية موحدة، والرجل الوحيد الذي يستطيع أن يوقف ما يسميه العالم حربا أهلية.

علينا أن ننظر إلى المسألة من منظورين. المنظور الأول هو الدستور، وأنا أتمتع بسلطاتي بموجب الدستور. وطبقا للدستور، ولهذه السلطات، ينبغي أن أكون قادرا على حل هذه المشكلة. لكن إذا كنت تقصدين أنه ليس هناك سوري آخر يمكن أن يصبح رنيسا، فالجواب هو لا، فأي سوري يمكن أن يكون رنيسا. هناك العديد من السوريين المؤهلين لهذا المنصب. لا يمكن ربط البلد بأسره بشخص واحد فقط وبشكل دائم.

روسيا اليوم: لكنك تقاتل من أجل بلادك. هل تعتقد أنك الرجل الذي يستطيع إنهاء الصراع واستعادة السلام؟

واجبي أن أكون هذا الرجل، واجبي أن أكون الرجل الذي يستطيع فعل ذلك، وآمل أن أتمكن من ذلك. لكن المسالة لا تتعلق بصلاحيات الرنيس، بل بالمجتمع بأسره. ينبغي أن نكون دقيقين في هذا الصدد. لا يستطيع الرنيس فعل شيء دون المؤسسات ودون الدعم الشعبي. لذلك، فإن المعركة هنا ليست معركة الرنيس، إنها معركة السوريين. كل سوري يشارك حاليا في الدفاع عن بلده.

روسيا اليوم: هذا صحيح، فالعديد من المدنيين يموتون أيضا نتيجة القتال. وهكذا، كيف يمكن تحقيق النصر في هذه الحرب؟ كيف يمكن أن تتصالح مم شعبك بعد كل ما حدث؟

مرة أخرى، علينا أن نكون أكثر دقة. المشكلة ليست بيني وبين الشعب، فأنا ليس لدي مشكلة مع الشعب. لكن الولايات المتحدة ضدي، والغرب ضدي، والعديد من البلدان العربية ضدي، وتركيا ضدي. فإذا كان الشعب السوري ضدي أيضا، كيف يمكن أن أبقى هنا؟

روسيا اليوم: إنهم ليسوا ضدك؟

إذا كان جزءٌ كبير من العالم ضدي، والشعب ضدي، وأنا هنا، فهل أنا سوبرمان ؟ أنا إنسان. هذا ليس منطقيا. الأمر لا يتعلق بالمصالحة مع الشعب، كما لا يتعلق بالمصالحة بين السوريين مع بعضهم البعض . نحن لسنا في حرب أهلية. الأمر يتعلق بالإرهاب والدعم الذي يحظى به الإرهابيون من الخارج لزعزعة استقرار سورية.

روسيا اليوم: ما زلت تعتقد أنها ليست حربا أهلية؟ أقول هذا لأني أعرف أن الجميع يعتقد بأن هناك عمليات إرهابية في سورية، كما أن هنك صراع على أساس طائفي، وجميعنا سمعنا حكاية الأم التي لديها ابنان واحد يقاتل مع قوات الحكومة والآخر يقاتل مع قوات المعارضة. كيف لا تكون هذه حربا أهلية؟

هناك انقسامات، لكن الانقسامات لا تعني حربا أهلية. هذا أمر مختلف تماما، فالحرب الأهلية ينبغي أن تكون على أساس مشكلات عرقية أو مشاكل طائفية، قد يكون هناك في بعض الأحيان توترات عرقية أو طانفية لكن هذا لا يجعل منها مشكلة ، إذا كان هناك انقسام في العانلة الواحدة، أو في قبيلة أكبر، أو في مدينة واحدة، فهذا لا يعني أن هناك حربا أهلية. ما يحدث أمرٌ مختلف تماما. وهذا طبيعي، وعلينا أن نتوقع ذلك.

روسيا اليوم: عندما أتحدث عن تصالحك مع شعبك فأنا أعني أني سمعتك تقول في مناسبات عديدة بأن الأمر الوحيد الذي تكترث له هو الشعب السوري، وما يشعره الشعب السوري نحوك، وما إذا كان يعتقد أنك ينبغي أن تكون الرنيس أو لا. ألا تخشى أنه في المحصلة، ونظرا لضرر الكبير الذي لحق بالبلاد، فإنهم لم يعودوا يكترثون للحقيقة، بل إنهم يحملونك المسؤولية فقط.

هذا سؤال افتراضي، لأن ما يعتقده الشعب هو الصحيح. ولمعرفة ما يعتقدونه علينا أن نسألهم. لذلك لا أخشى ما يعتقده البعض. أنا أخشى على بلدي. علينا أن نركز على ذلك.

روسيا اليوم: للعديد من السنوات، كان هناك حكايات كثيرة عن الجيش السوري الجبار،.الأجهزة الأمنية السورية البالغة القوة، لكننا نرى أن هذه القوات لم تستطع سحق العدو كما توقع الناس أن تفعل، ونرى الهجمات الإرهابية تحدث وسط دمشق بشكل يومي ثقريبا. هل كان كل ما قيل عن الجيش السوري والأجهزة الأمنية السورية مجرد أساطير؟

في الأحوال الطبيعية عندما يكون لدينا الجيش والأجهزة الأمنية والاستخباراتية نركز على العدو الخارجي، حتى لو كان لدينا عدو داخلي، كالإرهاب، لأن المجتمع يساعدنا على الأقل في عدم توفير حاضنة للإرهابيين. الآن وفي هذه الحالة، لدينا نوع جديد من الحرب، حيث يمارس الإرهاب بالوكالة، سواء من خلال سوريين يعيشون في سورية، أو مقاتلين أجانب يأتون من الخارج. هذا نوع جديد من الحروب وعلينا أن نتكيف مع هذا الأسلوب الجديد، وهذا يستغرق وقتأ وليس سهلا. والقول بأن هذا شبيه بالحرب التقليدية أو النظامية ليس صحيحا. هذه الحرب أكثر صعوبة بكثير هذا أولا. ثانيا، فإن الدعم الذي يتلقونه والذي يقدم لهؤلاء الإرهابيين ومن جميع الأشكال، سواء من حيث الأسلحة أو المال أو الدعم السياسي أمر غير مسبوق. ولذلك علينا أن نتوقع أن تكون حربا قاسية وصعبة. من غير الواقعي أن نتوقع أن بلدأ صغيرأ كسورية يمكن أن يهزم كل تلك البلدان التي تقانلنا من خلال عملائها خلال أيام أو أسابيع.

روسيا اليوم: نعم، في الحرب التقليدية يكون لديك قاند ولديه جيش، يأمره بالتحرك يمينا فيتحرك ويسارا فيتحرك. لكن في هذه الحالة هنك فصانل من الإرهابيين ليس لديهم إستراتيجية موحدة لمحاربتكم. وهكذا، كيف تحدث عمليات القتال هذه؟

ليست هذه هي المشكلة، المشكلة أن أولنك الإرهابيين يقاتلون من داخل المدن، وفي المدن هناك مدنيون، وعندما تقاتل هذا النوع من الإرهابيين، ينبغي أن تحرص على أن يكون الضرر في حده الأدنى على البنية التحتية والمدنيين. لكن علينا أن نقانل لأننا لا نستطيع ترك الإرهابيين يقتلون ويدمرون. هذه هي الصعوبة في هذا النوع من الحروب.

روسيا اليوم: لقد لحق الضرر بالبنية التحتية للبلاد، والبنية التحية للجيش، وبالاقتصاد، ويبدو كما لو أن سورية ستتحلل قريبا، ويبدو أن الوقت يعمل ضدك. في رأيكم، ما الوقت الذي تحتاجونه لسحق عدوكم؟

لا نستطيع الإجابة على هذا السؤال لأن لا أحد يزعم أن لديه الجواب حول متى يمكن لهذه الحرب أن تنتهي ما لم يكن لدينا الجواب حول متى سيتوقفون عن تهريب المقاتلين الأجانب من مختلف أنحاء العالم، وخصوصا من الشرق الأوسط والعالم الإسلامي، ومتى سيتوقفون عن إرسال الأسلحة لهؤلاء الإرهابيين. إذا توقفوا – وهنا أستطيع أن أجيب عن سؤالك – نستطيع أن ننهي كل شيء خلال أسابيع. ليس في الأمر مشكلة كبيرة. لكن طالما استمرت عمليات التزويد بالإرهابيين والسلاح والمساعدات اللوجستية، فإنها ستكون حربا طويلة.

روسيا اليوم: عندما نفكر بأن لديكم حوالي أربعة آلاف كيلو متر من الحدود التي تصعب السيطرة عليها، ولديكم عدو يستطيع أن يعبر الحدود إلى الأردن أو تركيا للتزود بالسلاح والحصول على الرعاية الطبية ثم يعود لمحاربتكم، فكيف يمكنكم أن تنتصروا في مثل هذه الحرب؟

ما من بلد في العالم يستطيع أن يضبط حدوده تمامأ. حتى الولايات المتحدة لا تستطيع ضبط حدودها مع المكسيك بشمكل كامل. وقد ينطبق الأمر نفسه على روسيا وهي بلد كبير. وهكذا، ليس هناك بلد يستطيع أن يضبط حدوده بشكل كامل . يمكن للبلدان تحقيق وضع أفضل على حدودها من خلال إقامة علاقات جيدة مع جيرانها، وهو ما لا نمتلكه الآن مع تركيا على الأقل، فتركيا تدعم أكثر من أي بلد آخر تهريب الإرهابيين والأسلحة إلى سورية

روسيا اليوم: هل لي أن أسألكم سؤالا. لقد زرت تركيا مؤخراً ووجدت أن الناس هناك قلقون جدا حيال ما يمكن أن يحدث بين سورية وتركيا. هل تعتقد أن حربأ سورية – تركية تشكل سيناريو واقعي؟

عقلانيا، لا أعتقد ذلك لسببين. الحرب بحاجة إلى الدعم الشعبي، وغالبية الشعب التركي لا تريد مثل هذه الحرب. ولذلك لا أعتقد أن أي مسؤول عقلاني يمكن أن يفكر بمعارضة إرادة الشعب في بلاده. وينطبق الأمر ذاته على الشعب السوري. وهكذا، ليس هناك خلاف بين الشعب السوري والشعب التركي بل يتعلق الأمر بالحكومات والمسؤولين، بين مسؤولينا ومسؤوليهم بسبب سياساتهم. وهكذا لا أعتقد بأن هناك أي احتمال لقيام حرب بين سورية وتركيا.

روسيا اليوم: متى كانت المرة الأخيرة التي تحدثتم فيها إلى أردوغان، وكيف انتهت تلك المحادثة؟

كان نلك في أيار 2011 بعد أن فاز بالانتخابات.

روسيا اليوم: هنأته بالفوز؟

نعم، وكانت تلك هي المرة الأخيرة.

روسيا اليوم: من الذي يقوم بقصف الأراضي التركية، القوات الحكومية أم قوات المعارضة؟

لمعرفة ذلك ينبغي أن يكون هناك تحقيقات مشتركة، ينبغي أن يكون هناك لجنة مشتركة بين الجيشين من أجل معرفة من يقصف من. هناك الكثير من الإرهابيين على الحدود ولديهم مدافع هاون، ولذلك فإن بإمكانهم القيام بذلك. ينبغي إجراء تحقيقات في طبيعة القذيفة ومكان سقوطها وما إلى نلك. وهذا لم يحدث. طلبنا من الحكومة التركية تشكيل مثل هذه اللجنة، فرفضت. ولذلك لا جواب لدينا. عندما يكون هناك كل هؤلاء الإرهابيين على الحدود، لا يمكن أن تستبعد احتمال وقوع ذلك، لأن الجيش السوري ليس لديه أية أوامر بقصف الأراضي التركية لأن لا مصلحة لنا في ذلك . وليس بيننا وبين الشعب التركي أي عداوة. نحن نعتبرهم أخوة لنا، فلماذا نفعل ذلك، إلا إن حدث نلك عن طريق الخطأ، وهذا بحاجة للتحقيق. حتى الآن ليس لدينا جواب.

روسيا اليوم: هل تقبلون فرضية أن يكون ذلك قد وقع عن طريق الخطأ من قبل القوات الحكومية؟

هذا احتمال ممكن. في كل الحروب تقع أخطاء. تعلمين أنه في أفغانستان يتحدثون دانما عن النيران الصديقة؟ فإذا كان يمكن للجيثس الواحد أن يقتل أفراده خطأ، هذا يعني أن ذلك يمكن أن يحدث في كل حرب. لكننا لا نستطيع أن نؤ كد حدوث ذلك.

روسيا اليوم: لماذا تحولت تركيا، التي كنتم تعتبرونها بلداً صديقا، إلى موطئ قدم المعارضة؟

ليس تركيا وليس الشعب التركي، بل حكومة أردوغان، كي نكون دقيقين. الشعب التركي بحاجة لعلاقات جيدة مع الشعب السوري. أردوغان يعتقد أنه إذا استولى الإخوان المسلمون على الحكم في المنطقة، خصوصا في سوربة، يستطيع أن يضمن مستقبله السياسي. هذا سبب. السبب الآخر هو أنه يعتقد شخصياً أنه السلطان العثماني الجديد، وأنه يستطيع السيطرة على المنطقة كما كان الأمر خلال عهد الامبراطورية العثمانية وتحت مظلة جديدة. إنه يفكر في أعماقه بأنه خليفة. هذان هما السببان الرنيسيان لهذا التحول فى سياساته من صفر مشاكل إلى صفر أصدقاء.

روسيا اليوم: لكن ليس الغرب وحده هو الذي يعارضكم في هذه المرحلة، حيث لديكم الكثير من الأعداء في العالم العربي. قبل عامين، كان إذا سمع أحد باسمكم في العالم العربي فإنه يقف احتراما، أما الآن فقد خانوك عند أول فرصة أتيحت لهم. لماذا لك كل هؤلاء الأعداء فى العالم العربي؟

إنهم ليسوا أعداء. غالبية الحكومات العربية تدعم سورية ضمنيا، لكنهم لا يجرؤون على قول ذلك علانية.

روسيا اليوم: لماذا؟

لأنهم يتعرضون لضغوط من الغرب، ومن البترودولارات

روسيا اليوم: من يؤيدكم في العالم العربي؟

العديد من البلدان تؤيدنا ضمنيا لكنها لا تجرؤ على التصريح بذلك علناً، لكن هناك أولا العراق الذي يلعب دوراً فعالا في دعم سورية خلال هذه الأزمة لأنه بلد مجاور، وهم يدركون أنه إذا حدثت حرب داخل سورية فسيكون هناك حرب في البلدان المجاورة، بما في ذلك العراق. وهناك بلدان أخرى لها مواقف جيدة مثل الجزانر، .وعُمان بشكل أساسي. وهناك بلدان أخرى لست بصدد تعدادها الآن لديها مواقف إيجابية لكنها لا تتصرف بناء على تلك المواقف.

روسيا اليوم: لماذا هذا الإصرار على تنحيك من قبل السعودية وقطر، وكيف يمكن لزعزعة الاستقرار في الشرق الأوسط أن يخدم أجنداتهما؟

بصراحة، لا أستطيع أن أجيب نيابة عنهم. عليهم هم أن يجيبوا على هذا السؤال. لكن ما أستطيع قوله هو أن المشكلة بين سورية والعديد من البلدان، سواء في العالم العربي أو في المنطقة أو في الغرب هي أننا نقول “لا” عندما نعتقد أن علينا أن نقول “لا”. تلك هي المشكلة. وبعض البلدان تعتقد بأنها تستطيع السيطرة على سورية من خلال الإملاءات أو من خلال المال أو البترودولارات، وهذا غير ممكن في سورية هذه هي المشكلة. ربما يريدون أن يلعبوا دوراً. ليس لدينا مشكلة في ذلك. يستطيعون أن يلعبوا دورا، سواء كانوا يستحقون ذلك أو لا، لكن ليس على حساب مصالحنا.

روسيا اليوم: هل يتعلق الأمر بالسيطرة على سورية أم بتصدير رؤيتهم للإسلام إلى سورية؟

لا تستطيعين القول إن ذلك سياسة حكومية في هذه البلدان. في بعض الأحيان يكون هناك مؤسسات في بلدان معينة، وفي بعض الأحيان يكون هناك أشخاص يدعمون هذا التوجه، لكنهم لا يعلنون عن نلك كسياسة رسمية. وهكذا، فإنهم لم يطلبوا منا الترويج للمواقف المتطرفة لمؤسساتهم. لكن ذلك يحدث في الواقع، سواء كان من خلال الدعم غير المباشر الذي تقدمه الحكومات، أو من خلال المؤسسات والأشخاص. هذا جزء من المشكلة، لكن عندما أتحدث كحكومة، فإني أتحدث عن السياسة المعلنة، والسياسة المعلنة، كأي سياسة أخرى، تتعلق بالمصالح ولعب أدوار، لكننا لا نستطيع أن نتجاهل ما ذكرته.

روسيا اليوم: ايران، حليفكم الوثيق ، تتعرض أيضأ لعقوبات اقتصادية، وتواجه أيضا التهديد بالغزو العسكري. إذا كان عليكم أن تختاروا بين قطع العلاقات مع ايران مقابل السلام في بلادكم، فهل تتخذون هذا الخيار؟

ليس لدينا خيارات متناقضة بهذا الشأن، والسبب هو أنه كان لدينا علاقات جيدة مع إيران منذ عام 1979 وحتى الآن، وعلاقاتتا تتحسن باستمرار، لكننا في نفس الوقت نتحرك نحو السلام. كان لدينا عملية سلام ومفاوضات سلام، ولم تكن إيران عاملا ضد السلام. هذه معلومات مضللة يسعى الغرب لترويجها وهي أننا إذا كنا نريد السلام فلا ينبغي أن يكون لدينا علاقات طيبة مع إيران. ليس هناك أي علاقة بين الأمرين. إنهما موضوعان مختلفان تماما. لقد قدمت إيران الدعم لسورية، ودعمت قضيتنا، قضية الأراضي المحتلة، وعلينا أن ندعمها في قضاياها. هذا أمر واضح وبسيط. إيران بلد هام للغاية في المنطقة، وإن كنا نسعى نحو الاستقرار، ينبغي أن يكون لنا علاقات جيدة مع إيران. لا يمكن أن نتحدث عن الاستقرار في ظل علاقات سيئة مع إيران أو مع تركيا أو مع جيران آخرين.

روسيا اليوم: هل لديكم أي معلومات تفيد بأن أجهزة المخابرات الغربية تقوم بتمويل مقاتلي المعارضة في سورية ؟

ما نعرفه حتى الآن هو أن هذه الأجهزة تقدم دعما معلوماتيا للإرهابيين من خلال تركيا، وفى بعض الأحيان من لبنان بشكل رنيسي. لكن هناك أجهزة مخابرات أخرى، ليست غربية، بل إقليمية، نشطة جدأ وأكثر نشاطا من الأجهزة الغربية، وبالطبع تحت إشراف أجهزة المخابرات الغربية.

روسيا اليوم: ما هو دور القاعدة في سورية في هذه اللحظة؟ هل يسيطرون على أي من قوات المعارضة ؟

لا أعتقد أنهم يسعون للسيطرة على هذه المجموعات، بل إنهم يسعون لتأسيس إمارتهم، حسبا التعابير التي يستخدمونها، لكنهم يحاولون بشمكل رنيسي إخافة وترهيب الناس من خلال التفجيرات والاغتيالات، والهجمات الانتحارية، وأشياء من هذا القبيل لدفع الناس إلى اليأس وكي يقبلوا بهم كأمر واقع، وهكذا فهم يتحركون خطوة خطوة ، لكن هدفهم النهاني هو إقامة إمارة إسلامية في سورية يستطيعون من خلالها الترويج لأيديولوجيتهم الخاصة بهم في باقي أنحاء العالم

روسيا اليوم: من بين أولئك الذين يقاتلونكم والذين يعارضونكم، إلى من يمكن أن تتحدث؟

نتحدث إلى كل من يملك إرادة حقيقية لمساعدة سورية، لكننا لا نضيع وقتنا مع أي شخص يريد استغلال أزمتتا لمصالحه الشخصية.

روسيا اليوم: لقد وجهت للقوات الحكومية اتهامات عديدة بارتكاب جرانم حرب ضد المدنيين السوريين. هل تقرون بأن القوات الحكومية ارتكبت جرائم حرب بحق المدنيين السوريين؟

إننا نحارب الإرهاب ونطبق الدستور لحماية الشعب السوري. لنعد إلى ما حدث في روسيا قبل أكثر من عقد من الزمن. كنتم تواجهون الإرهاب في الشيشان وأماكن أخرى. كانوا يهاجمون المسارح والمدارس وغيرها، وكان الجيش الروسي يحمي الشعب. هل تسمي ذلك جرانم حرب؟ بالتأكيد لا. قبل بضعة أيام، اعترفت “أمنستي إنترناشونال” بالجرانم التي ارتكبتها الجماعات المسلحة قبل أيام عندما أسرت جنوداً وأعدمتهم. كما أن “هيومان رايتس ووتش” اعترفت أكثر من مرة بالجرانم التي ترتكبها تلك المجموعات، ووصفت قبل أيام بأنها جرانم حرب. هذا أولا. ثانيا، من غير المنطقي أن يرتكب جيش جرانم حرب ضد شعبه، لأن الجيش السوري يتكون من أفراد الشعب السوري. لو أراد الجيش أن يرتكب جرائم بحق شعبه فإنه سينقسم ويتفتت. ولذلك لا يمكن أن يكون هناك جيش قوي وموحد وفي نفس الوقت يقوم بقتل شعبه. ثالثا، لا يمكن لجيش أن يصمد لمدة عشرين شهراً في هذه الظروف الصعبة دون أن يحظى باحتضان الشعب السوري. فكيف يمكن أن يحظى بهذا الاحتضان في حين يقوم بقتل الشعب. هذا تناقض.

روسيا اليوم: متى كانت آخر مرة تحدثتم فيها إلى زعيم غربي؟

قبل الأزمة.

روسيا اليوم: هل عرضوا عليك في أي وقت شروطاً مفادها أنه إذا تركت منصب الرئاسة، فسيسود السلام في سورية؟

لا، لم يُطرح ذلك عليَّ مباشرة، لكن سواء عرضوا ذلك بشكل مباشر أو غير مباشر، فإن هذه مسألة سيادة، ومن حق الشعب السوري وحده التحدث في ذلك الأمر. كل ما يُطرح بعد ذلك بشكل مباشر أو غير مباشر أو في وسائل الإعلام لا معنى ولا وزن له في سورية.

روسيا اليوم: لكن هل لديك الخيار؟ ، لأنه كما يبدو الخيار في الخارج ليس لديك أي مكان تذهب إليه فإلى أين تذهب إذا أردت الرحيل؟

إلى سورية. هذا هو المكان الوحيد الذي يمكن أن أكون فيه. أنا لست دُمية، ولم يصنعني الغرب كي أذهب إلى الغرب أو إلى أي بلد آخر. أنا سوري، أنا من صُنع سورية، وعليَّ أن أعيش وأموت في سورية.

روسيا اليوم: هل تعتقد أن هناك، في هذه اللحظة، أي فرصة للدبلوماسية أو للحوار أم أنكم وصلتم إلى مرحلة يمكن للجيش وحده أن يُنهي هذه الأزمة؟

أنا كنت دائماً أؤمن بالدبلوماسية وأؤمن دائماً بالحوار حتى مع أولئك الذين لا يفهمون الحوار أو لا يؤمنون به. علينا أن نستمر في المحاولة. أعتقد أننا سنحقق دائماً نجاحاً جزئياً. علينا أن نسعى إلى هذا النجاح الجزئي قبل أن نحقق النجاح الكامل. لكن علينا أن نكون واقعيين. لا ينبغي الاعتقاد بأن الحوار وحده هو الذي يمكن أن يحقق النجاح، لأن أولئك الذين يرتكبون هذه الأعمال ينقسمون إلى أنواع: نوعٌ لا يؤمن بالحوار، خصوصاً المتطرفين، والنوع الثاني يتكون من الخارجين عن القانون الذين صدرت بحقهم أحكان قضائية قبل سنوات من بدء الأزمة، وعدوهم الطبيعي هو الحكومة، لأنهم سيُسجنون إذا عادت الأمور إلى طبيعتها. النوع الآخر هم الأشخاص الذين تلقوا الدعم من الخارج، وهؤلاء ملتزمون فقط تجاه الأشخاص أو الحكومات التي دفعت لهم وزودتهم بالسلاح. هؤلاء لا يمتلكون قرارهم. ولذلك علينا أن نكون واقعيين. وهناك نوع آخر من الناس سواء كانوا مقاتلين أو سياسيين يقبلون بالحوار. ولذلك فقد شرعنا في هذا الحوار منذ أشهر حتى مع المقاتلين، وقد تخلى بعضهم عن السلاح وعاد إلى حياته الطبيعية.

روسيا اليوم: هل تعتقدون أن الغزو الأجنبي لسورية بات وشيكاً؟

أعتقد أن كلفة مثل هذا الغزو، لو حدث، ستكون أكبر من أن يستطيع العالم بأسره تحمُّلها، لأنه إذا كانت هناك مشاكل في سورية، خصوصاً وأننا المعقل الأخير للعلمانية والاستقرار والتعايش في المنطقة فإن ذلك سيكون له أثر “الدومينو” الذي سيؤثر في العالم من المحيط الأطلسي إلى المحيط الهادي. وتعلمين تداعيات ذلك على باقي أنحاء العالم. لا أعتقد أن الغرب يمضي في هذا الاتجاه، لكن إذا فعلوا ذلك، لا يمكن لأحد أن يتنبأ بما سيحدث بعده.

روسيا اليوم: سيادة الرئيس، هل تلوم نفسك على شيء؟

ينبغي عادة أن تجد أخطاء في كل قرار، وإلا فأنت لست بشراً.

روسيا اليوم: ما هي أكبر أخطاؤك؟

بصراحة، لا أذكر الآن، لكني قبل اتخاذ أي قرار أدرك بأن جزءاً منه سيكون خاطئاً، لكن لا يستطيع المرء أن يعرف أخطاءه الآن. في بعض الأحيان، خصوصاً خلال الأزمات، لا تستطيع رؤية الصحيح من الخطأ إلى أن تتجاوز الأزمة. ولهذا لن أكون موضوعياً إذا تحدثت عن الأخطاء الآن، لأننا لازلنا في وسط هذه الظروف.

روسيا اليوم: إذاً، ليس هناك ما تأسف عليه؟

ليس الآن. عندما يتضح كل شيء، يمكن أن نتحدث عن الأخطاء، ولا شك أن هناك أخطاء.

روسيا اليوم: لو كان اليوم هو 15 آذار 2011، عندما بدأت الاحتجاجات بالتصاعد والتنامي، ما هي الأشياء التي كنت ستفعلها بشكل مختلف؟

كنت سأفعل ما فعلته في الخامس عشر من آذار

روسيا اليوم: نفس الشيء؟

تماماً، أطلب من الأطراف المختلفة الشروع في الحوار والوقوف في وجه الإرهابيين. هكذا بدأ الأمر. لم يبدأ بالمظاهرات، حيث كانت المظاهرات هي الغطاء، لكن داخل هذه المظاهرات كان هناك مقاتلون بدأوا بإطلاق النار على المدنيين وأفراد الجيش في نفس الوقت. ربما على المستوى التكتيكي، كان يمكن القيام بشيء مختلف. لكن كرئيس للبلاد، فأنا أتخذ القرار على المستوى الإستراتيجي، وهذا شيء مختلف.

روسيا اليوم: الرئيس الأسد، كيف ترى نفسك بعد عشر سنوات؟

أرى نفسي من خلال بلادي، لا أستطيع أن أرى نفسي، أستطيع أن أرى بلادي، أستطيع أن أرى نفسي من خلال بلادي.

روسيا اليوم: هل ترى نفسك في سورية؟
