THE Elected Leader of the Syrian People

H.E. President Bashar Al-Assad's recent interview with  the Turkish  TV channel Ulusal Kanal and Aydinlik Newspaper, highlighted some of the Syrian basic principles ad doctrines. Among the principles highlighted was commitment to dialogue among all Syrians as to end the ongoing crisis, largely imposed by colonial powers and their proxies: any dialogue to solve the crisis in Syria ''should include only Syrians. It should not include foreign intervention. We have no other red lines from this. Syrians can talk about and discuss anything. This country is for all Syrians, and they can bring all things to the table.'' Pointing out that "The only red line is about foreign intervention,"

President Al-Assad issued a strong warning to those anti-Syria forces that their playing with fire and fueling of the crisis would definitely burn them and spread to their own countries. It is the "domino effect that will reach countries across the Middle East, to the west, east, north and south. This would mean instability for many years, even decades."

H.E. accurately reflected the Syrian dismay and wrath of the majority in Syria against the so-called Arab League, which ''lacks legitimacy. It's a league that represents the Arab states, not the Arab people, so it can't grant or retract legitimacy. Real legitimacy is not accorded by organizations or foreign officials or other country... legitimacy is that which is granted by the people. All these theatrics have no value in our eyes." This very league is remote-controlled by anti-Syrian forces, who are indeed not independent actors but rather act under the guidance of foreign countries.

President Al-Assad's statements were a stitch in time in the face of continued meddling in Syria's domestic affairs and in its steadfast legitimate right to defend itself and get purged from every foreign-backed and Takfiri terrorist group. Actually, the West has no right to establish democracy in Syria as it is responsible for bloodshed in the region. The ongoing crisis is but  a "struggle to redraw the region’s map and one going on between major powers," pointing out that the United States has stood by Israel's crimes since the latter was founded. The US executed massacres in Afghanistan and Iraq; it has killed millions, injured millions and inflicted disabilities on millions. France and Britain executed massacres in Libya with American support.

"We are surrounded by countries that help terrorists and allow them to enter Syria," H.E. President Al-Assad underscored, asserting that many countries wanted to ruin Syria, but that didn't not happen, as they try and that many countries assist  terrorists in Syria.  Israel was, however, the real enemy, which occupied our land. Israel, according to my simple belief, is but the enemy of itself, given its ongoing sword-rattling and sponsoring of al-Qaeda affiliates on the 1974 armistice line.

H.E. President Al-Assad lectured some egoistic and narrow-minded politicians important moral lessons in morality and good manners. Turkish Premier Erdogan is but such a liar, who has not said a single word of truth since the beginning of the crisis in Syria, and who is working with Israel to destroy Syria. idiot, immature leaders shouldn't, however, be allowed to destroy relations between Syrian and Turkish brethrens.

The world is no more US-dominated; the establishment of BRICS sent a signal to the whole world that the US can no longer remain the sole pole of global power and that others will now have to bear in mind the opinion and interests of the BRICS countries, which were not assisting either the Syrian government or Syrian state per se and, instead, were holding out for stability in the region.

Yes, Your Excellency, YOU are the elected leader of the Syrian people, who flooded every corner and street on June 10, 2000, in the aftermath of the untimely passing away of the Syrians' father, crying and shouting: we sacrifice our soul and blood for Bashar Al-Assad.
