"With all humility, and with the recognition of all differences of political values, I'm still with Syria and with President Bashar al-Assad."
I am with him at first, because the United States and Israel against him, and whenever I read in an American newspaper or on a Hebrew website an opinion calling for the overthrow, to replace its "dictatorial" regime another "democratic" one, I remember immediately what the American did with the intervention in Iraq, and my memory recalls most of the scenes of Israeli criminality against the Lebanese and Palestinian peoples.
I am with him secondly, because Abdul-Halim Khaddam is against him, and I do not want to replace the regime which has withdrawn its army from Lebanon as a fait accompli by another headed by the engineer of guardianship previously who jumped over on the national independence, since the seventies of the last century until the beginning of the present century.
I am with him thirdly, because I am convinced that Syria is in Syria and Lebanon is in Lebanon, and because all the talks about Syrian intervention that continues in Lebanese affairs is to trigger and justify at same time the intervention of dozens of other countries in the world.
Fourthly I am with him, because I do not see that an opposition from Syrians in Syria, but a few groups and individuals and most of them with civilian good faith, only a few with extremist backgrounds which raised slogans in Daraa saying: "Send Aalawites to the coffin, and send the Christians to Beirut."
Fifthly I am with him, because Syria is not Egypt nor Tunisia where religiously homogeneous communities, or where large majorities of one doctrine live together. Their revolutions might be valid, even with slight security developments. In Syria just as in Lebanon and Iraq, revolution becomes a sectarian war, and when war starts it never ends, and it becomes a national way of life with spaces of time intervals between a war and another war.
Sixthly I am with him, because Syria is not Germany in 1989 when the Berlin Wall fell fulfilling the unity of one community, and because Syria is not South Africa where the apartheid regime fell thanks to historical leaders such as Nelson Mandela. Syria is like Yugoslavia, where the fall of the unity regime means only war.
Seventh, I am with him for I am with Lebanon, and with the modest understanding that I have, the following slogan is true "the security of Lebanon depends on Syria's security, and the security of Syria depends on Lebanon's security," so that the collapse of the Syrian regime could mean a sentence of death in the transformation of Lebanon "Naher-el Bared war 2" with a whole country substantial war fighting against Extremist and Fundamentalist , and again the Lebanese army not getting any support from the West to overthrow them, just as it did not even have ammunition to annihilate them in the last "Naher-el Bared" small war in 2007. The West backing up the fundamentalists and terrorists that took refuge in a Palestinian camp to destroy the Lebanese army representing unity of the People, claiming that these ammunitions might reach Hizbullah, while actually Hizbullah fighters fought secretly along the army to destroy the fundamentalists.
Eighth I am with him, because I visited Syria many times in recent years, and I know that the religious freedom in it is amazing just as Lebanon, and the building of churches which is not forbidden, such as in Saudi Arabia, and I saw the modern way of life that was growing further and on the way to more development.
Ninth I am with him, because I feel that its "dictatorial" regime is more freedom than some of the systems defended by the West with all their strength, and to which they allow all their dirty works just as they did in Bahrain, and that they always do in Saudi Arabia. I do not know why the Syrian regime has to fall, while the Saudi regime and the other Gulf regimes supported by Americans have to stand-up.
Tenth I am with him, because I was against the Syrian regime before and particularly before 2005, when he was occupying Lebanon, I was one among the thousands who refused to cancel Lebanon from the political map, and I was with the resolution 520 in 1982 and the law of the "Syria Accountability and Lebanese Sovereignty Restoration Act" in 2003 , before the adoption of resolution 1559 in 2004, before the assassination of Rafik Hariri in 2005. So now I am with him also, because I always was "free sovereign and independent" from the beginning, before all the "Lebanese" liars who claimed that they have become as well after the end of the occupation.
Finally I am with him, because I know that all the Lebanese files in relationship with the Syrian regime, including the demarcation of the borders and the Missing-People is the responsibility of the Lebanese government before becoming the one of Syria, I am fully aware that the request to replace the term "relations parity" with "fraternal relations" in the ministerial statement (to the Government of National Unity ), and I am not even Saad Hariri "...
So after a year and a half as a Christian Lebanese writer, do you think I was wrong?

Lebanon has some interesting history with its christian population in general.
But honestly, Americas action have long ago stopped being that of a "christian" nation.
I would think the ultimate goal of a christian nation would be to ensure the sanctity of life, protecting the innocents and such.
Just look at the republican party to see the biggest Group of christian hypocrisy...
Christ would of been the biggest liberal socialist out there... Sell all your goods and give to the poor?
Yea, Christians need to separate themselves from the countries they inhabit.
The kingdom is not on the earth...
Thats one of the things I feel the Jehovas Witness may have got right, the removal of all aspects of defense and politics from their practices.

Thank you for this wonderful translation. I have been telling people this same thing, The Christians do NOT want what the Brotherhood is promising in Syria, and seemingly many people are blind to these facts.
S&F! Great article!
Representatives participated Aalmeon photography. Chinese intelligence reveal the details of the fake film of the fall of Syria and finance $ 36 billion

A spokesman for the Federal Intelligence Service of China "Zonko Kingpau" that the project aims to portray the process of film showing scenes look really fake to the process of a "fall of the regime of President Bashar al-Assad." A spokesman for the agency Col. "Ishma Songa" in an interview with Channel Russian second is that the Chinese intelligence information leaked from her clients from within the project that the company "Asa Des Duck Riley", based in Philadelphia, Nevada in the United States is the main product of the scenes called in confidence by the name "Risawnding bean" or "falling resounding regime" and is intended to ultimately weaken the morale of members of the Syrian Arab Army and pro-Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. The broadcast by saying scenes of models sizes real representing the Republican Palace and Mount Kassioun and Damascus International Airport and a playground Abbasids and building national leadership and squares of the Umayyads and the Abbasids and the seven Bahrat and a library-Assad and President bridge in Damascus as well as airport conscience of the military and one of the farm belonging to a senior officer, and the aim is to draw scenes of a real scenario, "the fall of the regime." Songa said the channel that the project includes the depiction of scenes of "split" for senior officers and politicians who were inside the country and renowned representatives have participated in the filming of some of those scenes as producers seek to design the scenes of some of the officers by a three-dimensional design techniques. He added that the financing of Songa Alemczura a $ 36 billion paid by Qatar and Saudi Arabia, Oman, Egypt and Tunisia in addition to contributions from both Iraq and Morocco.
The broadcast schedule will coincide with the cut scenes all satellite channels broadcast pro-Syrian regime in Syria, Lebanon and the Islamic Republic of Iran, within the political scheme - an accelerated time frame is expected to mature before the middle of the month of August next. Songa commented by saying that what is happening confirms the occurrence of a cosmic plot to the Syrian Arab Republic for the friendly Republic of China. He added that his country would not leave the Syrian regime faces a cosmic conspiracy alone, but will be a huge moral support in order to fend off the effects of the plot.

Thought this might be helpful for those who do not believe in disinformation.
"The Pentagon is developing plans to provide news items, possibly even false ones, to foreign media organizations as part of a new effort to influence public sentiment and policy makers in both friendly and unfriendly countries, military officials said.
Little information is available about the Office of Strategic Influence, and even many senior Pentagon officials and Congressional military aides say they know almost nothing about its purpose and plans. Its multimillion dollar budget, drawn from a $10 billion emergency supplement to the Pentagon budget authorized by Congress in October, has not been disclosed.
Headed by Brig. Gen. Simon P. Worden of the Air Force, the new office has begun circulating classified proposals calling for aggressive campaigns that use not only the foreign media and the Internet, but also covert operations."
-The public outcry against this was so strong the pentagon publicly stated this office was shutting down. However, Donald Rumsfeld is on record stating;
"And then there was the office of strategic influence. You may recall that. And "oh my goodness gracious isn't that terrible, Henny Penny the sky is going to fall." I went down that next day and said fine, if you want to savage this thing fine I'll give you the corpse. There's the name. You can have the name, but I'm gonna keep doing every single thing that needs to be done and I have."
-the DOD website has since removed this transcript from their site, the transcript in the above link was copied directly from their site before it was taken down... If you go to this link www.defense.gov... you can see that the article is in the archives section of the official DOD website but if you click the link it comes up as a removed page
The article (link above) was written by an LA Times military affairs analyst after the shut down of the office of strategic influence and subsequent comments made by Rumsfeld. The author of this article is not stupid, he knew about the closing of the office of strategic influence and exactly what Rumsfeld said, this is the LA Times, not some fly by night newspaper, this proves that the comments were in fact made by Rumsfeld, and serious military analysts believed this was still an ongoing operation.
The Military's New War of Words
"In a policy shift that reaches across all the armed services, Secretary of Defense Donald H. Rumsfeld and his senior aides are revising missions and creating new agencies to make "information warfare" a central element of any U.S. war. Some hope it will eventually rank with bombs and artillery shells as an instrument of destruction."
-Since 2002 mainstream media is absolutely silent about these programs. Since that time however, we have found disinformation throughout mainstream media reports, all siding with US government agenda. We are also finding more and more journalists loosing their employment for speaking against government policy.
Everything we are getting about the Situation in Syria is disinformation because the mainstream media stopped being actual journalists to being copy pasters without checking sources or caring in the least for truth.

Can I say something, seriously?
The Brotherhood is doing this with the support of your government. Should the people of America not be in support of such actions then it is the Americans who need to speak out to put an end to this madness!
