Bashar al-Assad: the resilience of the Syrians defeated the car of the aggressors
As I reported in a previous article, on July 16, the inauguration of the newly elected Syrian President Bashar al-Assad took place in Damascus. After the ceremony, he delivered a massive program speech.
The head of state called all honest Syrians revolutionaries, despite the fact that revolutionaries in the West are those who throughout the crisis terrorized the civilian population and played a traitorous role in relation to their own country.
“A few years ago, hostile forces spoke of a“ struggle for freedom ”. Your answer was that you remained free, rejected the obedience and fate of the slaves. They talked about democracy - your answer showed your will in the most democratic way. You rejected foreign interference in our internal affairs, you voted for your Constitution, you chose your parliament, you chose your president. Throughout this time, you made your decisions, and your will created our democracy. They chanted: "The Syrian people are one." Your answer was that in the face of confusion, you never allowed your ideas and ideas to poison your souls and thoughts. You really were one people with one heart ... All these years, while they spoke, you did. They are mired in their illusions, while you have made reality today. They called for revolution, and you became true revolutionaries. Congratulations to all of you with your revolution and your victories, congratulations to Syria and its people, great and steadfast. ”
Bashar al-Assad thanked his people for steadfastness, noting that “there are those who fought with weapons in their hands, others fought, speaking the truth, and still others fought, keeping their hearts steadfast, despite all the threats. ”
This perseverance, according to the president, defeated the aggression, the aggressors and their whole car, it contributed to the change of positions of many players, many of them left the stage, were forced to change the rhetoric, many of the structures they created disintegrated. The true motives of the enemies were also manifested - the mask of “freedom fighters” slipped from them, and they showed their real face by killing, decapitating people and even eating their organs.
“You defied the storm, you stood in the face of treachery. You have achieved your goal - you have raised the voice of justice against lies, hypocrisy, falsification and deception. You made the whole world see the truth. The truth, which for three years the enemies tried to bury with the help of their political influence, oil and the media. The few hours during which you expressed your views and showed your determination were enough to destroy all frauds, defeat the psychological and moral terror that has been practiced against Syria for many years, ”said the Syrian leader.
He described the elections held in the country not just as a political act. They became a battle to protect the homeland and its sovereignty. “With your votes you defeated the terrorists and agents who gave them political cover. You defeated their owners, their directors, including the superpowers and their satellites who make decisions, as well as their obedient performers, ”the politician emphasized.
He particularly noted the fact that a large voter turnout was among Syrians who are abroad. And this is despite all the threats and obstacles that Western countries have created to the voting process.
The head of state addressed with warm words and to those who came to the polling stations in Syria itself: “I would like to express my gratitude to every citizen of Syria who defied shelling, threats and fear by coming to the polling station. For example, this is a worthy woman who, from five o'clock in the morning, stood with a portrait of her dead son. This is a soldier who, despite his wounds, came to the area in a wheelchair. This is a century-old woman who came to cast her vote in spite of illnesses. ”
In addition, he nobly thanked his rivals in the elections - Hassan An-Nuri and Maher Hajjar. And, of course, all the soldiers who bled to defend the Motherland, without which this victory for Syria would be impossible.
Bashar al-Assad drew attention to the fact that some countries in the region that are trying to teach the Syrians "democracy" themselves have no idea about it. Addressing fellow citizens, he said: “Today you could teach those people in the Arab region who do not know such concepts as sovereignty, perseverance and dignity. You could give them the lessons of democracy, teach them to take part in determining their national destiny, so that they learn about things that they have not heard about before: elections, freedom, law, the state and civilization. They only knew repression, extremism, subordination, dependence and the export of terrorism. ”
According to him, the ballots were bullets fired at terrorists.
“The war against the Syrian people is a dirty war. But, despite all the injustices and sufferings inflicted on every Syrian family, despite all the blood and all the destruction, the Syrians did not surrender. On the contrary, we as a nation received strength from the trials. Increased pressure has made us more manly. We meet all attempts to humiliate us with pride, dignity and self-confidence, ”he stressed.
The president also noted that the West is still a colonizer today. He also touched those who exploit religion for their own purposes, fulfilling the will of external forces: “At the beginning of the crisis, I spoke of them as“ devil brothers ”. Some thought that while I did not leave room for a future compromise. They said: “How can a president call them devils if they are a political party? He should call them the Muslim Brotherhood. I apologize, but we should not call them "devil brothers" - they are the devils themselves. Because murder, terrorism, corruption, instigation of insurrection and all these terrible acts are the work of the devils. ”
As for the term “civil war”, which is often used by various media in relation to the Syrian situation, the head of the SAR emphasized that the enemies, speaking of civil war, thus try to create a cover for their aggressive actions, and also to legitimize terrorists as one of the parties to the conflict.
But, in addition to external factors, the crisis has internal ones. Among them, corruption occupies a large place. In addition, according to the president, it is necessary to strengthen the role of educational and religious institutions in the field of education, on which a lot depends too. It is also necessary to intensify the role of the Syrian media.
The president paid special attention to the problem of restoring the country, in particular, to the destroyed infrastructure facilities. So, he noted that due to the constant attacks on power plants and power lines in the country - the most serious problems with the supply of electricity. In addition, a great deal of damage was caused to the oil industry, as well as to external and internal tourism.
“Let's join hands to begin the process of restoring Syria to be worthy of it.” Let our creation be ahead of destruction. Let us prove, as we have done over the past three years, that the will of the Syrians is many times stronger than the will of the terrorists and traitors, ”he urged.
Speaking about the so-called “Arab spring”, Bashar al-Assad stressed that if these were really people's revolutions, they would have begun in the most backward and despotic countries. In fact, it was these countries that stood behind the catastrophe that befell the Arab nation.
He also sharply condemned Israel’s actions in the Palestinian Gaza Strip.
In his speech, the Syrian President thanked the allies - in particular, the resistance forces in Lebanon. Special words of gratitude went to Iran, Russia and China: “These are states that respect the decision and the will of the Syrian people for three years. They defended the UN Charter and the principles of respect for sovereignty and non-interference in the internal affairs of states. ”
“Our problems are huge and the tasks are difficult. Our successes in dealing with difficulties and our self-confidence should not make us rest on our laurels. Our enemies are treacherous, but our will is strong. We will turn the trials into opportunities. As long as we have a desire to act, let our achievements in the future be of the same scale as the price we paid, and even more. A new stage has begun, and we are fully prepared for this. Syria deserves all our efforts, sweat and work. We will not regret anything, just as our heroes did not spare their blood and their lives. I will always be one of you living among you. I am guided by your opinion and inspired by your consciousness. Together, hand in hand, we will do everything to ensure that Syria remains strong, proud, steadfast and inviolable to any foreigner. We Syrians must remain the strongest defense of Syria and its dignity. Peace be with you, ”said the President, concluding his speech.
It is not surprising that the terrorists, supported by external forces, were angry both by the words of the Syrian leader and by the very fact that the people expressed their will at the elections. Therefore, as always, the gangsters committed another crime. Immediately after the inauguration ceremony, they subjected the capital to mortar fire. Several shells exploded in the Damascus Business Center, which caused the death of an 4 man. Other shells fell near the TV and Radio Center on Umayyad Square, as a result of which there were wounded.
