President Bashar al-Assad sworn in for a new term, addresses Syrians in milestone speech

Damascus, SANA – President Bashar al-Assad was sworn in Wednesday before the members of the People’s Assembly. Following the swearing-in ceremony, the President delivered a speech in which he first saluted the Syrian people.

Below is the full text of the President’s speech following the swearing-in ceremony: Honourable Syrians, Free Syrian Revolutionaries,

Three years and four months have passed since some declared, on your behalf: “The People want.”  Yes, The People wanted…. The People decided… The People took action.

A few years ago, some called for freedom – your response was to remain free in the age of subservience, to be masters in the age of slaves.  They patronised you with their calls for democracy – your response was to show your will in the most democratic manner possible and refuse foreign intervention in your national affairs; you chose your constitution, you chose your parliament, you chose your president.  Throughout, the decision was yours and your will has created our democracy.

They chanted: “The Syrian people are united” – your response was to face their storm of sedition, never allowing the winds of division to poison your hearts and minds; you were truly one people with one heart.

They preached: “They bow only before Allah” – your response was to never bow before their masters, to never surrender, to never give up.  You stood fast and held fast to your homeland, always believing in one God, a God who doesn’t share His powers with super-nations and who can never be substituted for oil or dollars.  And when they said; “Allahu Akbar” – God was greater than them and their supporters, because God is always on the side of justice and justice is on the side of the people.

During these years, whilst they were talking, you were doing; they sank in their illusions, whilst you made today a reality.  They called for a revolution and you rose to be the true revolutionaries; so, congratulations to you all on your revolution and your victories and congratulations to Syria for her great people and their steadfastness.

Congratulations to Syria whose people defied all forms of hegemony and aggression with all the means available to them: with their reason, their intellect and patriotic consciousness.  There are those who fought with weapons in their hands, others who fought by speaking the truth and others still who fought with their resilient hearts despite all the threats.

Congratulations to Syria whose people defied all forms of fear and terrorism and voted under fire in the referendum and the elections, thwarting the aggression, the aggressors and their machinery.  This steadfastness altered all expectations, circumstances and facts; positions changed, players withdrew, terminology dropped, alliances vanished, councils divided and other bodies disintegrated.  Many who were blinded to the truth, either out of ignorance or deception, regained their sense of direction.  True motives were revealed when their masks of freedom and revolution fell and they drove their fangs into Syrian flesh; killing, beheading and cannibalizing hearts and livers.  Every dirty trick was used; they left no perverse or deviant path untrodden.  And still they failed.

President Assad: Syrian Crisis in Turning Point Due to Army’s Achievements

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad stressed that the current crisis in his country is passing through a turning point on the military side due to the continuous achievements of the army in the war against terrorism.

In a meeting with the teaching staff and post-graduate students at the Faculty of Political Sciences in Damascus, Assad warned that the intellectual war is one of the gravest aspects of the colonial aggression targeting Syria.

“Intellectual war and attempts to abolish or replace identity are one of the gravest aspects of the colonial aggression targeting Syria,” official news agency, SANA, quoted President Assad as saying.

The Arab region is originally based on an ideology of correlation between Arabism and Islam, the President said, “which makes adherence to this principle one of the most important factors for restoring intellectual and social security to Arab societies.”

The West has sought to abolish this ideology so as to dominate the region and the role of Arab countries. Having failed to do so, the Syrian leadert said, the West turned to play on concepts to alter the essence of the ideology.

President Assad here noted that intellectuals and academics have a role to look into concepts and furnish them with clear-cut meanings to confront attempts aimed at voiding ideologies of their content.

Syria is targeted, not only for its weighty geopolitical position, but also for its pivotal role in the region and the sway it has on the Arab street, the President said.

Annan: Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Turkey supplied Syrian opposition with money and arms

Vienna, (SANA) Former UN Secretary General and former international envoy to Syria Kofi Annan said Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Turkey have supplied the “Syrian opposition” with money and arms.

In an interview with the Austrian Die Presse newspaper, Annan noted that some regional and Western countries rejected the six-point plan which he presented for solving the crisis in Syria because they had differences with the Syrian leadership or with Iran, Russia and China, adding that those countries then formed the so-called “Friends of Syria” group.

He reiterated the need to solve the crisis in Syria by peaceful and political means, expressing his opposition to any form of military intervention.

Annan, who was appointed as UN Special Envoy to Syria in February 2012, highlighted that the Syrian government showed positive reaction to his efforts early in his mission with regard to declaring a limited ceasefire while the other parties rejected that step.

The former international envoy stressed that Iran must be part of the solution in Syria given its great capabilities that allow it to exert an influence in the region and play an objective role to end the crisis, pointing out that Saudi Arabia opposed any Iranian role as it views Tehran as a rival in the regional and international arena.

Annan underscored that what made the US President Barack Obama hesitant to launch any military action against Syria despite pressure by the Pentagon and the US’s Western and Gulf allies was because of the fact that the situation in Syria is totally different from Libya or any other country given its sensitive geopolitical position.

He said that belief matched his visions to end the crisis in Syria peacefully when he told everybody that there could not be a military solution to the “conflict” in Syria, adding that no full agreement on his proposals was reached at the UN Security Council, “and that was why I had to quit my mission as an international envoy to Syria”.

Annan quit his position as an envoy and informed the UN of his intention not to renew his mission, which lasted until August 31 of 2012.

Annan expressed regret that Austria withdrew its forces from the UN Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF) in the occupied Syrian Golan, considering that the withdrawal of some Western states’ forces from Golan reflects these countries’ lack of desire and indifference to solve the crisis in Syria.

L’axe de l’espoir, de Pékin à Beyrouth, en passant par Moscou, Téhéran et Damas

La stratégie états-unienne, imaginée par Zbigniew Brzezinski, de soutenir l’obscurantisme islamiste pour lutter à la fois contre les politiques musulmanes progressistes et contre la Russie a suscité une alliance pour lui résister. Désormais, la Chine, la Russie, l’Iran, la Syrie et le Hezbollah sont contraints de faire bloc pour survivre. En définitive, observe André Chamy, le piège se retourne contre celui qui l’a posé.

Dokou Oumarov, émir d’Al-Qaïda au Caucase du Nord, était chargé de paralyser la Russie durant les Jeux Olympiques de Sotchi, pendant que l’Otan changeait le régime en Ukraine.

Islam contre islam…

L’Iran, la Syrie et le Liban grâce au Hezbollah et à ses alliés, considérés par les occidentaux depuis des années comme une source du Mal, en raison de leur soutien à ce que l’Occident appelle « le terrorisme », n’ont pas fini de faire parler d’eux. Après un traitement individuel pour chacun d’entre eux en fonction des clivages politiques dans la région, un axe s’est mis en place qui commence aux portes de la Russie et de la Chine pour finir à celles de Tel-Aviv.

Cet axe trouve ses racines dans la politique occidentale réservée à cette région du monde. Les États-Unis, suivis des principaux pays occidentaux, ont décrété la manière dont leurs intérêts économiques devaient être préservés coûte que coûte. Cette politique partiale a généré au fil des années des tensions, source de conflits armés et de combats de rue qui n’en finissent pas d’alimenter les journaux télévisés.

Cette politique, inscrite dans la durée, a été être mise en œuvre avec l’appui d’acteurs locaux. Toutefois, une accélération s’est opérée après la chute du Mur de Berlin, vécue comme un événement historique, ce qui est évidemment le cas, mais qui a marqué l’avènement d’une stratégie agressive et méprisante à l’égard du Proche-Orient.

L’URSS ayant disparu, les pays de la région ne pouvaient plus rien espérer comme autre salut que de s’en remettre à la volonté occidentale, et notamment à celle des États-Unis. Au lieu de tirer profit de cette position privilégiée d’arbitre, ces derniers et certains pays occidentaux allaient privilégier l’écrasement et la domination du « Proche-Orient élargi », à travers des interventions directes en Irak, en Afghanistan, mais également au Liban, au Yémen, dans le Maghreb avec l’intention déclarée d’intervenir en Syrie et en Iran.

Les États-Unis savent, depuis les années soixante dix, suite au choc pétrolier, qu’ils doivent contrôler les sources de matières premières, tout particulièrement celles du pétrole, ainsi que les voies d’acheminement de ces ressources, car ils ont fait l’amère expérience de découvrir cette nécessité vitale tant pour leur économie que pour le confort de leurs citoyens.

Les avis des experts divergent dans l’évaluation des réserves en gaz et d’hydrocarbures, mais une idée reste constante, celle du caractère épuisable de ces trésors qui se trouvent selon eux entre les mains de bédouins cupides qui n’ont que faire de l’utilisation qui sera faite de leur or, dès lors que leurs loisirs et plaisirs sont financés.

À l’heure où les « chocs de civilisation » de Samuel Huntington ont remplacé la Guerre froide, l’islamisme est devenu pour les États-Unis le nouvel ennemi utile, « allié » à eux, en quelque sorte, contre l’Europe. Pragmatiques et opportunistes, ils ont vu dans le mouvement islamique une « lame de fond », et ont choisi de jouer la carte musulmane pour mieux contrôler les artères de l’or noir. Cet allié dangereux qu’est l’islamisme, ils avaient pressenti son intérêt bien avant l’implosion du communisme.

À partir des mêmes années 1970, les États-Unis vont soutenir les extrémistes islamistes, des Frères musulmans syriens aux islamistes bosniaques et albanais, des Talibans à la Jamaa Islamyah égyptienne. L’on évoqua même leurs liens avec le FIS (Front islamique du salut, devenu le groupe violent « GIA ») en Algérie. Ils ont choyé les wahhabites à la tête de la monarchie pro-US d’Arabie Saoudite qui finance la quasi-totalité des réseaux islamistes dans le monde. Ils ont joué les apprentis sorciers, et les mouvements fondamentalistes qu’ils croyaient manipuler se seraient parfois retournés contre le « grand Satan » pour réaliser leurs propres objectifs.

En revanche, les USA ont abandonné ou voulu neutraliser les pays musulmans susceptibles d’acquérir une puissance politique et une relative autonomie. Songeons au président Jimmy Carter abandonnant le Shah, alors que l’Iran était en train de devenir maître de son pétrole. À cela se rajoute la volonté d’écraser toute velléité d’indépendance même intellectuelle des pays arabes laïques tels que la Syrie, l’Égypte ou l’Irak.

Jouer avec l’islamisme s’est fait au détriment des mouvements laïques pouvant représenter une alternative à l’islam politique radical, celui-ci redevenant une valeur refuge après chaque échec dans cette région. Cependant, cet « islamisme » n’est évidemment pas à confondre avec la République « islamique » d’Iran qui a un parcours atypique. D’ailleurs, plusieurs auteurs de travaux de qualité sur les mouvements islamistes font parfois l’erreur de confondre la République islamique d’Iran avec les islamistes, alors qu’ils n’ont rien de commun, si ce n’est le fait de revendiquer la référence à l’islam et à la charia. La différence fondamentale vient de la définition même de l’islam politique prôné par les uns et les autres.

Tout les sépare fondamentalement, et si effectivement les États-uniens n’ont pas fait grand chose pour sauver le Shah, cette attitude était justifiée selon eux par des raisons stratégiques, car l’Iran ne devait d’après eux en aucun cas devenir une grande puissance régionale. Ce qui expliquera que quelques temps après la chute du Shah, les États Unis aient initié la guerre menée par Saddam Hussein à l’encontre de son voisin, ce qui permettait de ruiner les deux seuls pays qui pouvaient exercer une influence déterminante dans la région du Golfe.

Hezbollah guns down 32 al-Nusra terrorists in Lebanon

Hezbollah resistance movement fighters have ambushed al-Qaeda-affiliated al-Nusra Front terrorists in east Lebanon over the weekend killing at least 32 of the terrorists, a senior security source told.

The source added that a member of the Lebanese Hezbollah movement was also killed.

Hezbollah fighters lay the ambush early on Saturday, the source said adding that the bodies of the slain al-Nusra Front terrorists were in Hezbollah fighters’ possession.

Another Hezbollah member was wounded in the clashes that followed the ambush.

Fighting erupted between the Hezbollah fighters and al-Qaeda-affiliated al-Nusra Front terrorists in Wadi al-Jamala, on the outskirts of Nahle, a rugged mountainous area along the porous border between Lebanon and Syria.

Earlier, Hezbollah Secretary General Seyyed Hassan Nasrallah says Syria is the pillar of resistance, and the Lebanese resistance movement will stay in the crisis-hit country as long as necessary.

Nasrallah made the remarks in a speech in southern Beirut on Thursday, that marks the occasion of Ashura.

In June, Syrian troops, backed by Hezbollah fighters, fought the foreign-backed militants in Qusayr and regained the strategic town, which borders Lebanon.

THE QUENELLE : THE NEW SIGN OF RESISTANCE

20131128-083421.jpg
We make a quenelle action.
Send me your resistance sign as you take pictures next to any representative of the regime or before its institutions.

Parsifal, November 15, 2013 – lovingenergies

For the connoisseurs of French cuisine, the word ‘Quenelle’ is known.

It is a dish made from minced fish, chicken or meat cooked in water in the form of an oval dumpling.

In fact, the French word derived from the (German) word dumplings.

This article is not about the ‘haute cuisine’ but the explanation why the word ‘Quenelle’ has got a different meaning in France.

It is the expression for ‘f**k you’ or ‘Stick it in your ass’.

Sounds vulgar but is meant as an expression of protest against the elite.

There is also a hand sign and this could become a worldwide symbol of the uprising.

France risks ‘social explosion’ over high taxes

20131128-234046.jpg

The Quenelle is shown in which you stretch your arm straight down indicating with the other one as the measure of the length.

The higher the hand, the longer the measure, the stronger is the symbolic expression of protest.

20131128-083526.jpg

This new meaning has invented the popular French comedian originally from Cameroon Donne Dieudonné or ‘Dieudo’ as he is known in France.

Meanwhile, the character has become very popular with the French, and is exploited ubiquitously is used for ‘f**k the system’, ‘the state can kiss my ass’ or ‘plug it in your ass, Mr. President’.

20131128-083553.jpg

The symbolism has become so popular, the French regime of Hollande is panicking and has taken measures to suppress the symbolism and even prohibit.

The gesture is treated in their eyes as the Hitler salute.

Nevertheless, it is shown at every opportunity.

20131128-091046.jpg

For example, when the French interior minister and upper Zionist Manuel Valls allowed to take a picture with a group of young people.

Unbeknownst to him, the teenagers showed the Quenelle and so what they think of him.

20131128-091125.jpg
This photo with the grinning and unsuspecting Valls in the middle, brought laughter to the whole of France and made the protest sign even more popular.

It has become a sport in France, to approach known politicians to stand next to them, show the Quenelle and to be photographed.

20131128-091158.jpg

Especially the young French show the quenelle at every opportunity, especially when they are photographed next to the officials of the dictatorship.

The photos will then land on the Internet as an expression of protest.

20131128-091228.jpg

We know that France is under the total control of the global financial elite and the population is completely robbed of them.

The Quenelle is mainly directed against the Globalized Banking Industrial Complex.

Therefore, the organization against racism and anti-Semitism has described the Quenelle as ‘reverse Nazi greeting’.

Really, they did.

20131128-091305.jpg

Therefore clearly has crooked-laughed the whole French Internet community.

The regime is not amused and reacted with paranoia, as you would expect from a dictator like Stalin.

They have started a witch hunt and search for hidden ‘quenelles’ everywhere.

If the gesture is detected, especially among civil servants, police or military, then they will be punished.

20131128-091326.jpg

Quenelle Campaign

Of course, this persecution has triggered a flood of photos on the Internet with people showing the Quenelle as resistance to the regime.

Dieudo‘, the inventor of the quenelles, was of course banned from all public appearances on French television and is heavily censored, pelted with mud and slandered.

But his stage performances as a comedian are more popular than ever and he has invited uniformed official in his theatre in Paris, so they perform with him together the quenelle.

The photos are published On his website.

2 French soldiers doing the Quenelle in front of a Synagogue they are forced to guard are going to be sanctioned by order of the Ministry of Defense

Policemen show what they think of the government

We’re now in a frustrating situation, how can we make a ‘regime change in this so-called democracy (laughing), which is completely corrupted, controlled and paid by the moneyed elite and the corporations ?

The ‘Classe politique’ for long not represents our interests.
Millions of people in all Western industrialized countries are totally disgusted with the encrusted power structure because they see no realistic way to change something.
It remains only scorn and derision left.

20131128-232141.jpg

The only ones who are still ‘listening’ (laughing) are the SS, the Secret Services by their mass spying and eavesdropping of all our communications.

Hello slouch hats read along now:
What are you !
Sausages with small cocks !
Shame on you, you traitors to humanity.
How can you have such a crap job ?

We make a quenelle action.

Send me your resistance sign as you take pictures next to any representative of the regime or before its institutions.

Maybe we should take this new protest gesture outside France, because somehow we have to express the resistance of public and ourselves recognize mutually.

20131128-232205.jpg
Monsieur Dieudo shows the Quenelle, stick it up until here, as a protest against the system.
