Syrian president: 'We are facing a war from abroad'


www.cnn.com

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad addressed his country and the newly-elected People's Assembly on Sunday, decrying what he called the "terrorists" and "conspiracy" against Syria.

"At this time, we are facing a war from abroad," al-Assad said in his first public speech since January. "Dealing with it is different from dealing with people from inside."

His remarks stand in stark contrast to what the opposition and many world leaders have said for more than a year -- that al-Assad's forces, not external "terrorists," are behind a sustained slaughter stemming from the regime's c

As every time such news stories get reported on either CNN or on any other western news outlets, without any proof, CNN relays on the Rebels yet again.


the president spoke, heavy shelling rained on the anti-government bastion of Homs, the opposition Local Coordination Committees of Syria said. Simultaneously, at least five people were killed in Homs, Aleppo and Hama, the group said.

Opposition activists also reported seeing a large military convoy of about 45 trucks carrying tanks, armored personnel carriers and soldiers heading toward Deir Ezzor during al-Assad's speech



Here comes a better part Qatar is calling for a military action.


Qatari Prime Minister Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim bin Jabor Al Thani said Annan's peace initiative should be placed under Chapter VII of the U.N. charter, Qatar's news agency reported. Such a move would allow the U.N. Security Council to take action that could include the use of military force.


If a military action does happen you can bet that Russia, china will also step in and why is that? Russia has a naval base in Sryia if some nation targets it, that would lead us to a war with Russia.

And look at the comment section its unbelievable
just who the heck are those users?? take look at one comment.

Brad76:I doubt anyone believes Assad's terrible stories, blaming the United States for every little thing is getting old and dumb.

DinSel1:They dont "limit" access.

They simply are not allowed to get to the truth.

Reports from the Free Syrian Army and the Activists are far more reliable than official statements of the regime.

You only have a problem with CNN reporting activists truth because you support the Syrian Regime.


This user finds the Reports from the Free Syrian Army and the Activists are far more reliable?



Honestly whats with the people? are they that stupid? or are they buying into the war propaganda?

I believe everything that Assad is saying. After the crap that happened in Libya, you can be damn sure someone, somewhere has an agenda in Syria. I remember that unedited interview with Assad at the start of the year, where he said that the constitution of Syria states that the President has no authority over the military in these types of scenarios. The journalist who was reporting (i think for CNN or FOX) couldn't get it through her head that the Syrian constitution was different to that of the USA's.

Regardless, after seeing the Al-Qaeda flag in Libya which was flying above the new Libyan one, i would never trust a rebel force. Gaddafi was right, and I'm sure that Assad is right.

I love that, when faced with the theater that is war propaganda, the general population feels they are simply privy to it. As if, their worth matters so much to the people that have killed in return for property and money for centuries, these overlords, in their highly esteemed regard to the general population, just "release the truth". For freedom, and such.

The general population just accepts it, loves it in fact. "That's just how it is, because it was said so." Yet when someone totally involved in these matters, and totally vulnerable, paints a different light it's time for.. "CONSPIRACY THEORIES"!

I will tell you, there is nothing worse than a conspiracy theory from the general population. You find these theories on Facebook, usually, if nowhere else. Or maybe just the MSM comments section.. but those are all bots, frankly. They're usually stock military-industrial complex propaganda snippets that even the dumbest human being could decrypt.. but it doesn't get past the general stupor of the general population.

Because, of course there's nothing fishy going on. It's just a random event. You know, it's not like there are no conflicted interests and involvement or anything... what with all the.. let's see.. There was Afghanistan, oh and Iraq which was a big downer that everyone hates.. oh and Libya which was bombed during Fukushima... you know, critical bombing, really needed. Then there was Egypt, but we the general population, forgot about that. Then there's that Iran talk we always hear about. That leaves Syria too.. hrm.

Yea, these are just all completely unrelated, totally isolated events and they're all neat and tidy. The MSM reports on it as-is, and I believe it.

No conflicts of interest at all. No agendas whatsoever.

This place confuses me. In the US everything the Government says is wrong and everything that comes from alternative news places is right. When it comes to Syria, everything the Syrian regime says is right and everything that comes from the rebels on thousands of alterantive news sites, blogs, social media is all wrong. At ATS everyone thinks the US/NATO is making the entire thing happen so they can invade, while in the rest of the world the US/NATO are being called out for doing nothing.

When the US refers to some home grown anti goverment groups as terrorists ATS declares them freedom fighters. When Syria does the same ATS agrees completely. Who knew ATS was so pro Goverment and a dictatorship at that. Very interesting.

The problem is these none alterantive news sites, blogs, social media are backed by the CFR and former exiled or ex Syrians who are working with the American NGO based Groups.

I guess you would have believed the Danny activist who was proven to be an agent? and who was lying on air? while waiting for CNN?

You remember that?

Oh please. Spin it any way you want.

This has been going on for decades and even a cretin could see it. The west has been destabilizing the middle-east since the 70's. The west is actually, and officially AT WAR with two countries in the region. They have openly bombed several others. Libya, Egypt, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq. These are official "hot zones" that the US OPENLY ADMITS to having action in.

I sympathize with the people in this entire region, to have to put up with despotism, dictators and the wholesale oppression and meddling of the MIC in the west. There is no Good vs Bad in this situation, it's just Bad, and Bad. I really do hope the people get out of this mess somehow, but I don't see how this is going to happen. I do believe 100% that the west has had a hand in this all along, and still does, as they do with the entire region.

There will not be another invasion as the world population wouldn't stomach it. However, there will be the continuation of destabilization, or "business as usual".

Also, you presume to say the US could ever be "right" in it's foreign policy, and clearly it cannot. It has never done anything right in regards to foreign matters, even since it's inception and the wholesale slaughter of the American Natives. America is too interventionist. It always meddles, it always intervenes and causes havoc. Iraq is in utter chaos, no better than how it was before the invasion and probably bound to be worse because of the power vacuum. Afghanistan is a joke.

I mean, really.. like what is your intended goal here. To persuade people that the US is somehow not a "meddler" in all affairs middle-eastern? Cognitive dissonance, plausible deniability.. what ?

Islamic fanatics are bad no matter how you spin it. The only thing that keeps these dark-aged barbarians in check is a ruthless dictator. When you attempt to alleviate the problem, the perceived power vacuum is nothing more than a chance for the most ruthless to come to power. You can be sure as in Egypt, the Muslim brotherhood is well entrenched. Those who claim to administer social justice at the command of God and his law must be stopped.

Syria: Devout Muslims expel all families from Christian village
Is it any wonder that Christians are terrified of Islamic rule? (As bad as Assad is, there is worse.)

Christians living in conflict-torn Syria are afraid their community would fall victim of religious extremism if President Bashar al-Assad's regime collapses and Islamists come to power.
"I am afraid that we will suffer bad times," a member of Damascus's Christian community, who identified himself as Jorge, told Russia's RIA Novosti news agency.

"If the regime falls, Islamists will come to power," Jorge said. (Newstrack India)

Much thanks to Spencer for translating from the Arabic.
Syria: Jihadists expel all families from Christian village Jihadwatch

Here is my rough translation from the Arabic of the UPI story: "Breaking: Gunmen expel families from Christian village in Hama, Syria," from UPI Arabic, May 10:

Damascus, Syria, May 10 (UPI) - Gunmen Thursday expelled all Christian families from the village of Qustul al-Burg in the rural province of Hama in central Syria.
A local source from among the villagers told United Press International that "armed takfiris from the region came to the village and threatened us, demanding that we leave our homes and evacuate the village empty-handed."

"Takfiris" are those who practice takfir, or the pronouncing of rival Muslim groups as infidels so that they can be killed legally under Islamic law. It is a common term for Islamic jihadists.

The source, who preferred not to be named, said the militants "took control of all the houses in the village houses, and occupied the church and made it into their headquarters."
The village of Qustul al-Burg is in the province of Hama, in the northern part of the jungle plain, 42 km from Alsagalbeh and 48 km northwest of Hama. It contains around 10 Christian families.

well stated

This Bolton fiend is reason enough alone for god to obliterate america forever

Its unbeleiveble that this info and the like are full in public face and there are still those STUPID ( inbred crackheds, I can't think of a word or phrase that does this justice) enough to think this is about anything other then a few people taking over the world
which also inludes the land of Johm Bolton for those that can't read maps

Oh yeah, the muslim Brotherhood and alciaduh and the taliban etc are all just divisions of ISRAUKAMERICAS dirty tricks squads...as opposed to the secret service that just does tricks

I think you need to get a clue into just what radical Islam is, read their law.
It is not the place of governments to administer corporal punishment under the laws of religion.
If I am a Buddhist, do my religious beliefs justify my death?
So likewise, death by stoning or beheading for the crime of adultery.
As a Muslim man to place himself above all others because he is loved by Allah more.
Tribal warfare days are long gone, especially those that use religion to brutally justify their dominance

ok i think i need to educate some of you

SHIA...AND SUNNI muslims

NO sunni state practises any stoning etc etc

shia muslims are from..pakistan, afghanistan, iran, southern parts of iraq.
you can notice them..they have long scary beards, they talk too much, they sound asian when they talk

sunni muslims are form egypt, lebanon, palastine, syria, jordan.....
these lot are the "peaceful" ones who really frown on terrorism and extremism....

when we talk about syria or palastine or egypt.....THEY ARE NOTHING like the extremists you seem to know so much about.....palastinian suicide bombers etc are not fighting for religion but for their occupied land.

end of day, syria shares a border with isreal and christian lebanon....you tell me where the "terrorists" are....are they not in the border towns..

what about the picture with the "soldiers" killing people....but the soldiers are wearing trainers, white reebok classics.

the syrian situation needs no ignorance...could backfire

peace




sunni

If the majority of the people want to live under these laws, so be it.
I feel comfortable with that knowing they have a dictator keeping them in line.

Some common laws of “Islamic Sharia” which are regularly practiced in the Islamically ruled (Sharia-based) nations with some minor variations:
1- Jihad defined as “to war against all non-Muslims to establish the religion” is the duty of every Muslim and Muslim head of state (Caliph). Muslim Caliphs who refuse jihad are in violation of Sharia and unfit to rule.
2- A Caliph can hold office through seizure of power meaning through force.
3- The head of an Islamic State (Caliph) cannot be charged, let alone be punished for serious crimes such as murder, adultery, robbery, theft, drinking and in some cases of rape (Hudood cases) - Codified Islamic Law Vol 3 # 914C of and page 188 of Hedaya the Hanafi manual.
4- A percentage of Zakat (alms) must go towards jihad.
5- It is obligatory to obey the commands of the Caliph, even if he is unjust.
6- A caliph must be a Muslim, a non-slave and a male.
7- The Muslim public must remove the Caliph in one case, if he rejects Islam.
8- A Muslim who leaves Islam (apostate) must be killed immediately.
9- A Muslim will be forgiven for murder of : a) an apostasy b) an adulterer c) a highway robber. Making vigilante street justice and honor killing acceptable.
10- A Muslim will not get the death penalty if he kills a non-Muslim.
11- Sharia never abolished slavery and sexual slavery and highly regulates it. A master will not be punished for killing his slave. Slavery still exists amongst Arab Muslims.
12- Sharia dictates death by stoning, beheading, for sins like killing, adultery, prostitutions; and other Quranic corporal punishments like: amputation of limbs (chopping hands and feet), floggings, beatings and other forms of cruel and unusual punishments even for the sins like: stealing, sexual promiscuity, robbery, burglary etc.
13- Non-Muslims are not equal to Muslims and must comply to Sharia (pay Zizzya: poll tax) if they are to remain safe. They are forbidden to marry Muslim women, publicly display wine or pork, recite their own religious scriptures, or openly celebrate their religious holidays or funerals. They are forbidden from building new churches or building them higher than mosques. They may not enter a mosque without permission. A non-Muslim is no longer protected if he commits adultery with a Muslim woman or if he leads a Muslim away from Islam.
14- It is a crime for a non-Muslim to sell weapons to someone who will use them against Muslims. Non-Muslims cannot curse a Muslim, say anything derogatory about Allah, the Prophet, or Islam, or expose the weak points of Muslims. However, Muslims can curse, criticize or say anything derogatory they like to the religions of others.
15- A non-Muslim cannot inherit from a Muslim.
16- Banks must be Sharia compliant and interest is not allowed.
17- No testimony in court is acceptable from people of low-level jobs, such as street sweepers or a bathhouse attendant. Women in such low level jobs such as professional funeral mourners cannot keep custody of their children in case of divorce.
18- A non-Muslim cannot rule even over a non-Muslims minority.
19- Homosexuality is punishable by death.
