Bashar Wins Presidential Election

(Salam)

Bashar Assad has won a landslide victory in the Syrian presidential poll with 88.7 percent of the vote. This will secure him a third seven-year term in office amidst a bloody civil war, which stemmed from protests against his rule.

"I declare the victory of Dr Bashar Hafez Assad as president of the Syrian Arab Republic with an absolute majority of the votes cast in the election," parliament speaker Mohammad Laham said in a televised address from his office in the Syrian parliament.

A total of 10.2 million people voted for Assad. The voter turnout stood at 73.42 percent. No violations have been reported, Syria’s Higher Judicial Committee for Elections said as quoted by SANA news agency.

Syrian officials said the result was a vindication of Assad’s three-year campaign against those fighting to get rid of him.

This was the first multi-candidate presidential election in Syria for almost 50 years. The other two candidates for the top post were Hassan Abdullah Nouri, from the National Initiative for Administration and Change in Syria, and Maher Abd Al-Hafiz Hajjar, formerly from the People's Will Party.

Despite the high turnout figures, residents of some areas in the country’s north and east were obstructed from voting by rebel forces.

The conflict in Syria has already killed 160,000 people and created nearly 3 million refugees, as well as displacing more people inside Syria.

But while opposition groups inside Syria and most countries in the West have denounced the election as a sham, many Syrians are supporting President Assad and see him as the only option to return stability to the country.

“This is our duty, we can’t allow people from outside the country to decide for us. Our duty is to vote – or order to protect our country,” Usam Hammami, a resident in the capital Damascus, told RT’s Maria Finoshina.

Russia and Iran both supported the election and Assad himself has said that it is part of his efforts to meet the opposition’s demands.

Were there any other candidates?

 

Also, of course, they're going to elect Bashar again. Who else do they have who can act as a symbol in the fight against the takfiri terrorists? After all, those who wouldn't be content with Bashar being president probably didn't even show up to vote because they're too busy waging war.

Nah. He didn't "win" anything. Because there were no real elections. Plus, why are the Shias of Amirul Mu'mineen(as) clapping and cheering for elections anyways.?! Astaghfirullah..

 

May Allah curse all tyrants. Ameen. 

 

Seems like there was some real election, could you prove otherwise?

 

There is nothing wrong with elections, don't push your own ideas on the madhab. The book attributed to the leaders of the Shiites of Amir al-Mu'minin, Nahj al-Balagah, tells people to elect a person amongst them as a leader should a number of them gather together. A group obviously needs someone to guide them and make the final decision, how do you suppose they should elect that person? raffle? pick straws? wait for Jibra`eel to come?

 

 

That awkward moment when you log on to your facebook and see some of you're Shia friends cheer for the winning of this tyrant and at the same time remember that those same people hold every year public events on the martyrdom of Imam Hussain and their opposition to tyranny and oppression.

My opinion on this election?----> lol

 

It becomes less awkward when you stop, pause, and think 'Oh, maybe they don't believe he is a tyrant or oppressor, nor do they buy the accusations made against him since they may not have seen compelling proof'. 

 

I didn't even know the elections took place, i must be so out of it.

 

Hopefully the Syrians didn't make a mistake by electing him. Not a fan of him myself.

Could've made it seem a little more legitimate by saying 66-70% voted for him rather than the 88%.

 

Not saying it was rigged but how many legitimate elections have there been where a person has won by that big a margin?

 

Btw, was there any observers? Iranian or Russian?

 

Also if they would have had another alawite win and defeat bashar, a person which would have continued the same policies, the west would have had nothing to go on. Just saying.

With this type of thinking, next time don't accuse Sunnis of being unjust when they praise Saddam Al-Yazeed and label him as "Asad El-Arab" (Lion of the Arabs).

If they believe he hasn't done oppression, or proof hasn't reached them about his oppression, then i don't and won't, i like to try and use sound judgement when approaching things. Until and unless people see the same evidence as you think you have, then you shouldn't expect them to hold the same views as you. 

 

It's unjust (in the general sense of the word) to formulate views and opinions about people or situations without relying on real evidence that we are ready to use between us and God as proof, both in this life and the hereafter. If people choose not to form a negative opinion about a person because most of what is being said against them is coming from fussaaq and people they do not trust, then they surely aren't to be blamed.

Outrages Politically Incorrect News Flash

 

 

Time Tunnel News, Europe, 1864,

 

European Leaders today decry the outcome of Amerika's 1864 Election as "fraudulent" because country is in civil conflict and areas under insurgency could not vote.

 

Abraham Lincoln's re-election is determined to be invalid, a sham, and an "insult to democracy".

 

:lol:

A tyrant remains in his seat. You have a Ba'athi and Secular tyrant on one side, and a bunch of mindless Nasibees' on the other side.

Syria is being destroyed.

 

Takfiris or Assad

May Allah bless all democratic leaders like obama and curse all tyrants like bashar.

Or how about "May Allaah (s.w.t) rid the world from tyrants such as Bashaar al-Fasaad and O-Drama"?

Takfiris or Assad

 

you decide

This is like choosing between Yazeed' (l.a) and Saddam Hussein (l.a)

no it's not... you cannot come with a hypothetical statement like that, because there's no one who will have the opportunity to decide whom they would like to choose between Yazed al-Maloon  and Saddam al-Tikriti....

 

 

HOWEVER, the Syrian people had the opportunity to decide whom they'll support, and it was Assad.....

Congratulations and anyone calling him a tyrant is the real tyrant. Don't be mad because he's been smacking you and wahabis around for the past 3 years with his Zulfikar sword. Its amazing how some shias and wahabis are on the same page when it comes to one of the Leaders of the Axis of Resistance.

You don't really know anything. Just another sheep who loves him because he supports Hezbollah and an ally of Iran. Do you actually think that Allah s.w.t is proud of Bashar? Do you think Allah would be happy of a ba'athist, secular person and government?! Would Imam Mahdi(as) like this? Get over your dreams and wishful hopes. It's all deception. No government today is just, and there can not be a just government until Imam zaman(aj) returns. Till then, we're supposed to stay quiet and not support anyone, because every banner before the Qaem is taghut. That's why we were told from the imams(as) not to do jihad with anyone till zuhoor. A real Shia will just accept this and relax himself from the deceptions of the world and pleasures. All we need is to keep hope and always make dua' and be good musims. The rest is all politics which the believers shouldn't get involved in now. Salam.

you are not going to follow him in akhlaq and fiqh.

we have no interest in his religion because we shia athna asharis are not going to follow anyone except our aimms (as) and just faqih(s)

 

we should support him because he is fighting against our enemy and his foreign policy is best

You sound like a coward using the Imam(atf) as an excuse.  While you just sit back and watch your women and kids get raped,butchered,blown up step aside and stay silent while real men do something about it.

Anyone who has followed this conflict even a little tiny bit, knows which side is the side of truth.

 

Anyone with just a tiny bit of perspective, knows what is at stake and why it is absolutely necessary to support the SAA and Dr. Bashar al-Asad (even if most of us can only do it in our hearts).

 

Anyone with just a little bit of knowledge of history knows what will happen if the government in Syria were to collapse.

 

 

 

This is not about your personal preferences. Your personal preferences mean nothing in this conflict. If you don't like secularism, hey, good for you. Pat yourself on the back. We're talking about the livelihood of a nation of over 20 millions. So you can kindly take your personal preferences about political systems and choke on them.

 

None of us like the Saudi government; we don't like their ideology nor their treatment of their Shia minority.

None of us applaud the killing of Shias in Pakistan and the pervasive sectarian, takfiri contagion there.

None of us have any feelings of nostalgia for the Taliban in Afghanistan.

 

So why do some of us applaud when in Syria, the groundwork is being done for similar conditions to be created in Syria?

 

This isn't hyperbole; rather, this is a very realistic outlook based on the unfolding events. This contagion -- which has already begun cannibalizing itself (as it always does, because that is its nature) -- is nothing to be glorified, nor admired. And the crushing of this contagion is not an act of brutality but an act of prudence.

 

This is way bigger than Bashar, by the way. Bashar is one man, and although his political stances are -- for the most part -- principled and admirable, the more important issue and the issue of urgency is the livelihood of a people.

 

And I know Qa'im is gonna come in here immediately and say "Oh I'm Syrian so I know everything about Syria and you're wrong because I'm Syrian." Well, he takes advantage of the fact that he's the only Syrian on SC (other than Syrian Sister who is MIA) to silence the discourse. But he's just one person with one perspective. There are 22 million others.

 

In conclusion, if you like takfiri ideology, keep thinking what you are thinking.

If you like instability and sectarian violence, keep thinking what you are thinking.

If you want Israel to have a blank check for mayhem, keep thinking what you are thinking.

If you think thousand year old churches should be destroyed, keep thinking what you are thinking.

If you think OUR OWN holy sites should be destroyed, keep thinking what you are thinking.

If you think it's fun and good to play with the decapitated heads of corpses, keep thinking what you are thinking.

If you think sex trafficking is all well and good, keep thinking what you are thinking.

 

 

There are no words to describe people so oblivious...

- Amir-ul-Momineen says: "Muslims should not participate in battles under the

leadership of the one that does not have full acquaintance of the Islamic laws

and does not follow Allah’s Commandments regarding the spoils of war.

Muslims who are killed in such battles are regarded as supporters of our

enemies in the question of refraining from giving us our rights (of leadership)

and shedding our blood. In addition, they will be considered among those who

died before Islam." Al-Khasail, vol, 2, pg. 611

 

- Ibn Yaqida, who from Yahiya ibn Zikarya, who from Yousif ibn Kaleeb Masyoodi, who from Hakim

Salaman, who from Mohammed ibn Kaseer, who from Abu Bakr Hazme, who says the following:

"Once Abaan and myself were in the service of Abu Abdullah and we were told

about the black flag rising in the Khurasan. We asked from the Imam what is

yourasws opinion about the (uprising)? Imam replied: You should stay in your homes until you find out that we have agreed to support someone, only then come out to serve us fully prepared and armed." Ibid, h, 44

 

- Amir-ul-Momineen says, in one of the sermons (189):

"Stick to the earth, be patient in trials, do not move your hands and swords after

the liking of your tongues, and do not make haste in matters in which Allah

has not asked for haste because any one of you who dies in his bed while he had

knowledge of the rights of Allah and the rights of His Prophet and

members of the Prophet's house, will die as a martyr. His reward is

incumbent on Allah. He is also eligible to the recompense of what good acts he has intended to do, since his intention takes the place of drawing his sword.

Certainly, for every thing there is a (prescribed) time and a limit. "

 

- Ibn Walid, who from Saffar, who from Baraqi, who from his father, who from Mughara, who from

Mufazzal ibn Salay, who from Jabir who has narrated the following:

Abi Abd Allah (Mohammed Baqir) said: "People will face a time when their

Imamasws will be in occultation. Blessed are those who would stay firm on the

mastership of the ‘Sahib-e-Amr’ (the Divine Authorityasws) from us. The

minimum reward for them will be that Allahazwj will Say to them: ‘O Myazwj

servants! You have believed in Myazwj secret, you ratified the one whom Iazwj

have obscured from your eyes; therefore Iazwj give you news of the best rewards.

In fact only you are Myazwj slaves and slave-girls, Iazwj will Approve of only your

good deeds and only Forgive your shortcomings. And will disregard your sins in

the Hereafter; for your sake Iazwj will send down the rain, withhold disasters; Iazwj

would have sent down torment if you were not among others.

Jabir asked: O son of the Prophet! Please inform me what a ‘Momin’

should do during the time of Occulation of Imam? Imamasws replied: To

keep quiet and adopt solitude (to remain at home). Ibid, h 6

 

- Ahmed ibn Mohammed ibn Isa Alavi, who Haider ibn Mohammed Samar Qandi, who from abu

Ummero al-Ladshi, who from Hamidia ibn Bashir, who from Mohammed ibn Isa, who from al-

Hussain ibn Khalid who has narrated the following:

"I once asked from Abu al-Hassan al-Reza that I have heard a hadith from

Abdullah ibn Bakir and he gave an interpretation for it but I would like to hear

from yourself. The Imam said: Narrate it to me. I (the narrator) said: Ibn

Kaseer says that I have heard it from Aubaad ibn Zaara that once I was in the

service of Imam Jafar-e-Sadiq at the time when Mohammed ibn Abdullah ibn Hassan had initiated a revolt against the government. At that time, a person

from our companions came and asked from the Imam: ‘May I be sacrificed

for your cause. Mohammed ibn Hassan has risen up against the ruler and people

have started supporting him. What do you say about our involvement? Shall we

support him in his uprising? Imam replied: You should remain inactive until

the skies and the earth are silent.

Abdullah ibn Bakir says about this (hadith) that since the instructions have been

issued to keep silent until the earth and the skies are quiet and stationary so

there will neither be any establishment of a leader nor there will be a rising

(against unjust government). Abu al-Hassan al-Reza replied: Abu al-Hassan

(Imam Jafar-e-Sadiq) said the truth but interpretation of ibn Bakir is wrong.

Abu al Hassan has said: Remain inactive until the skies and the earth are

silent. It means until there is no ‘Call’ from the skies and until the cracks

opens up the earth". Bihar-ul-Anwar, vol. 52, pg. 189

 

- Mohammed ibn Hammam, who from Jafar ibn Mohammed ibn Malaik, who from Mohammed ibn

Ahmed ibn Isbaat, who from some of their companions have narrated the following:

Abu Abdullah said: "You should keep your mouths closed and stay in your

homes, since from this (uprising) neither you are going to be effected forever nor

general public, nor Zaidia would continue to become your shield (by uprising

against the governments)" Ibid, h, 45

 

- Alqamah ibn Qais says that once Amir-ul-Momineen delivered a sermon from the pulpit of al-

Kufa Masjid, which is famous by the name of ‘Lou Lou’, among many other issues of wisdom;

Amir-ul-Momineen said: "Be aware, I will leave you shortly and go behind a

‘Curtain’. You should expect now the anarchy of Banu Ummaid, the kingdoms’ of

‘al-Kasira’ will be built, in which what Allah Wants to be alive, will be made

dead and what Allah Wants to be demolished will be established. From now

onwards, make your homes a place of worship and remain patient like eating

cinders and keep on remembering Allah as the remembrance of Allahazwj is of

significant benefit, if you have the knowledge" Khutabah Lou Lou Amir-ul-Momineen, Bihar ul Anwar, vol. 52, h, ار ج : 52 ص : , 155 & را H

268

 

- Ali ibn Hussain said: "By Allah, no one from us will rise before al-

Qaim will reappear with Divine Authority and Power, if one does then his

condition will be like that of a bird flying from the nest before its wings are able to

lift it in the air. Subsequently, children pick it up and play with it." Al-Kafi, vol, 8, h, 382

 

- A number of our people have narrated from Ahmad ibn Mohammed, from Utahman ibn Isa, from

Bakr ibn Mohammed, from Sadir who has narrated the following:

Abu Jafar once said: "O Sadir, stay in your home and remain there, keep calm

until the night makes it calm. Until you learn that al-Sufyani has moved then

travel to us even if you have to walk on foot". Bihar-ul-Anwar, vol, 52, h, 69

 

- Zaid bin Ali says that he told by Abu Abdullah: "Do not go for it (up rising).

(Imam Jafar-e-Sadiq says) May Allah bless my uncle who came to my

fatherasws and said: "I want to get rid of this tyrant. He(my father) said: I

do fear for you to be slained and crucified on the gate of Kufa. As I have learned

(from my ancestors) O Zaid! Whoever comes out of the sons of Fatima

against the sultans, before the coming out, of Sufyani, will be killed." Bihar Anwar v.46 p.186

 

Why are you talking your opinion when the imams(as) words are very clear. And what do you think of governments? Do you also believe that there is a just government today?

(from my ancestors) O Zaid! Whoever comes out of the sons of Fatima

against the sultans, before the coming out, of Sufyani, will be killed." Bihar Anwar v.46 p.186

 

Why are you talking your opinion when the imams(as) words are very clear. And what do you think of governments? Do you also believe that there is a just government today? 

All taking out of context. Let me explain something real quick its probably the first time you heard it which is fine. A Resistance is born when their is NO Government. HIzballah was born in 1982 during the civil war when everybody was fighting everybody. Its a basic principle when a people have no government to defend them and their existence is on the line then they have the right to pick up arms to defend themselves. Israel Invaded Lebanon in 1982 and Hizballah was created to defend against the Invasion. The shias in south lebanon were being raped and killed by Israel and for a long time were neglected and forgotten by all of lebanon. So they decided instead of dying for free like your imposing they do they picked up arms and defeated Israel in 2000 and 2006. They haven't lost a battle ever since they were established.  Iran gives weapons to Hizballah through Syria. Syria stood by HIzballah in all the years especially when the whole word was against them.  This war and alliance  is not a religious one its political . Basically if your sitting in your house and someone comes in and breaks the door and tries to rape your wife and take over your land are you going to say hold on let me find a hadith that tells me to defend  myself? And when you decide to defend yourself but the enemy is powerful, so your neighbor decides to help you out because he knows that hes next and you become victories and defeat the enemy. Now the table is turned and your neighbor is being attacked and you know if you don't help him you will be next and plus its dishonorable not to return a favor what do you do ? You dont have to answer. The answer is clear.

No, not out of context. You're just ignoring the hadiths I shared. And if returning the favor includes supporting a tyrant, then the answer is no. 

 

Muhammad al-Baqir(as) said: "On the Day of Resurrection, a pavilion of fire will be made in which the supporters of the oppressors will be put, and nails of iron will be made for them scratching with it beginning with their hearts. So they will say: Our Lord, did we not worship You? He said: So He will say: Yea, however you were supporters for the oppressors."
