Stop Idolizing Bashar Assad

Recommended Posts

Salam,

A very important post!! Sometimes its easy to get carried away in the 'heat of the moment'.

One of the 'indirect' consequences of fighting Jabhat Al-Nusra and perserving the Resistance and the lives/honour of all the Muslims and Humans in the region is assisting Bashar.

One the other side, one of the 'indirect' consequences of supporting the rebels and the overthrow of Bashar is the slavery of the region to Israel, defeat of the Resistance, the strenthing of American influence in the region and the weakning of Islam.

Which of the 'indirect' consequences is for the greater benefit of Islam and humans worldwide?

i'd praise him if he stepped down and or changed his country regime to a parliamentary electoral "democratic" one. i want to see one arab leader with enough dignity ,wisdom and cleverness to do that.

I would like to see that too, but its not as easy as you think. Remember, the axis of resistance has many enemies who are seeking to exploit every weakness. This is why the Internal Security Forces of the Syrian regime were (excessively) harsh on their citizens and incredibly paranoid. Iran experiences similar (justified) paranoia. Democracy is a beautiful thing that we should all taste from, but it is very, very difficult to maintain when you have powerful enemies. Just ask Russia. They'll tell you all about their "Sovereign Democracy".

The Syrian Mukhabarat has a lot to answer for...

I don't idolize Assad, but i don't believe he is evil,

He is definitely evil. Not because I say this but because history shows.

Bashar Assad has betrayed and mistrusted Shia people(even Lebanese Shia and the Hezb) before this Civil War and will perhaps do after, as he has no religion or principles. We should not be fooled by his likes. The Shia also didn't fight because of him, I believe.

As I stated earlier, you cannot stay out of a Civil War. Either you fight for yourself and your people or you and your people die.

There are these options for Shia and Alawi at the moment: Choosing either one side or bringing both to negotiate with each other which means peace and no bloodshed anymore. The Shia have decided for the latter.

Says the expert in levantine politics..thankfully we the people of the land are much wiser than you...keep cursing all you like because 2 and a half years have past and Assad and his regime are more popular than ever!

Who cares who is popular? What does that have to do with right or wrong? Hitler had upwards of 90% popular support in Germany, do you have a poster of him hanging on your wall?

lol its amazing how many ignorant users and mods I've provoked with a rather ambiguous statement.

South Lebanon obviously gets where I'm going.

But the people on here who want him to step down so the country can be ruled by terrorists a big "lol" to you guys.

If he wasn't a good leader he would have sold this country out a while back and kept himself free of the stress and the mess of dealing with it all.

I have no idea whether he's truly a practicing Alawite, or even a Sunni or Shiite Muslim convert. The fact that stands is

that he's fighting for this small fragile Levantine country that has been tired and exhausted from these Salafist retards.

For that he definitely deserves praise and respect, but idolization definitely not as it is haram in our religion to idolize any mortal.

I believe you were just trolling AbuMuslim..yeah that was a good one, he deserved it... alot!

Who cares who is popular? What does that have to do with right or wrong? Hitler had upwards of 90% popular support in Germany, do you have a poster of him hanging on your wall?

But who are you to say who is more right from wrong, what do you know about Syria, where are you getting your info from....and Bashar is the opposite of Hitler, where has he ever engaged in a campaign of ethnic cleansing and made statements about his sect being the ones chosen by god, instead he chose a woman to bare his children, from the sect you are claiming that Assad is exterminating

P.s the only thing i have hanging on my wall is a framed segment from surat al Baqarah

Except that an elementary reading of history would tell you otherwise, men in power don't typically want to give it away (i.e opt to live stress free on some private island), in fact, most fight to their bitter demise to hold onto it, that's not courage, that's simply authority staying true to its nature, I don't see how Assad is any different.

What matters not is monarchy, dictatorship, presidency etc.

What matters is what an individual does for his people. His qualities and his work is what is relevant.

Assad> Zardari

Correct me if I am wrong, but didn't the shah leave once he realized his time was up? I think the military had gone neutral at that point, Assad is far away from that predicament. According to your theory, the Shah should have left Iran and relaxed on a private Island long before, but he resisted and oppressed till his fate became glaringly obvious.

But who are you to say who is more right from wrong, what do you know about Syria, where are you getting your info from....and Bashar is the opposite of Hitler, where has he ever engaged in a campaign of ethnic cleansing and made statements about his sect being the ones chosen by god.

What is the point of being relative when it comes to elementary morality? Just because someone else is more oppressive or violent doesn't mean you ignore your own crimes. Any serious moral agent looks in the mirror first before pointing fingers. And if you seriously believe that Assad has not oppressed his own people then there is no point in further having this discussion.

Your associating courage with giving up power. But in the context of Assad, for him to give up power, is to concede defeat to the terrorists. For him to abandon Syria would surely mean a cowardly act. A leader that is truly a leader will fight for power for the right reasons, not the wrong reasons. Based on your argument, Khomeini, Tito, Nasser and such are terrible leaders because they wanted to remain in power.

For the same reason the paid Shias, the so-called malangs (CIA) agents go to Syria and curse Abu Bakr and Umar openly in markets.

I don't believe they are CIA agents but just uneducated Shia zealots. It is a foolish deed and should be condemned. It is also an act of crime because with that they bring the whole local Shia community in danger.

Brother, that Mullah Malang who is the icon of Mutah king is a CIA agent you can ask any Pakistan member. He has cursed Shia Alims and has divided the Shia community.

It is for these Malangs the Shias got divided and served the Alqaida takfiri and Zionist agenda of giving power to takfiris.

in Pakistan.

Ever heard the phrase that absolute power corrupts absolutely? Either way, that wasn't my point. Assad is not behaving any differently than most authoritarian leaders in the past, they will abuse their power to hold onto it till the bitter end, the bitter end being them being ousted out of contention, whether that means lining up in front of a firing squad, or in exile like the Shah is irrelevant, the point is that men in power are incredibly reluctant to give it up. If you can cite an example in history where some authoritarian leader out of the goodness of his heart (or to pursue a more relaxed lifestyle) decided to give it up when faced with relative stresses of leadership then I am all ears.

Now you may believe that barking orders from an authoritarian position while his soldiers die on ground is a courageous undertaking, but its very typical authoritarian behavior. We will realize how courageous Assad is, or how much he cares for his fellow shias (rather than being primarily concerned with protecting his family empire/rule) when he is ever forced to give up his throne, but that again would be besides the point, there have been evil men in the past who have fought on front lines and displayed what would customarily be considered courage, but real courage is on the behalf of the helpless, and a leader should primarily be judged on his policy and abuse/fair use of authority.

Asad is the only leader who has agreed to Geneva convention of handling power back to people and has openly said that by next year he will step down and let people choose their leader. Tell me which dictator in middle east has agreed to such step down?

LOL! Zia Ul Haq also promised elections in 3 months, then ran Pakistan as a dictator for a decade, talk is cheap.

They are both dictators?

Yeah one dicator serving the foreign Alqaida and the other anti Alqaida, but seems people of Syria like their own dictator which they will show in the coming elections, which Assad has promised.
