Heavy turnout for Syrian presidential election

John Kerry and the rest of Israeli poodles have unanimously proclaimed the recent presidential election in Ukraine under US-NATO guns, “democratic” while predicting the June 3 Syrian presidential election to be “fraud”.

On May 28, Syrians living abroad flocked to Syrian embassies in various foreign capitals to choose among the three presidential candidates; incumbent president al-Assad, Maher Hajjar and Hassan al-Nouri. The election at home will be held on June 3, 2014.

Most political analysts believe that Bashar al-Assad will win the election hands-down as he has become a hero not only at home but in the entire Arab world for foiling US plan to turn Syria into an Israeli colony.

In neighboring Lebanon, 100,000 Syrian expatriates flocked to their embassy on May 28 to vote, causing a massive traffic jam throughout the capital, according to country’s security force.

We are voting for our great leader Bashar al-Assad, who will bring us, Allah willing, back to our homes,” said Mohammed al-Ali, who hails from the southern Syrian province of Daraa.

As the Lebanese police (ISP) was trying to hold back the human wave, clashes broke out with Syrian voters in various places. The crowd was brandishing portraits of Assad and chanted “With blood and soul we sacrifice for you, O Bashar!” or “Only God, Syria and Bashar!.” Unable to cope with the situation, the Syrian embassy had to set up makeshift polling stations.

The vast majority of Syrian voters no longer believe in the western myth of the “Arab Spring.” As they see it, their homeland was attacked by 250,000 foreign mercenaries sponsored by NATO and the GCC. Bashar al-Assad has saved the country from foreign aggression. They explain that they fled their country, not because of the bombing by the Syrian Arab army, but because of they suffered from the crimes at the hands of jihadists backed by NATO and the GCC.

On May 25, addressing a huge rally to celebrate Hizbullah’s victory over the Jewish occupation army in southern Lebanon in 2000, Sheikh Nasrallah pledged that his Islamic Resistance will never allow another Israeli-puppet regime in Damascus.

Professor Flynt Leverett (Jewish) at Pennsylvania University and a senior Fellow at the New America Foundation, wrote on May 29, 2014 that Obama administration Syrian policy has failed. He also said that president Bashar al-Assad remains popular among the vast majority of Syrians living in Syria or abroad. He asserts that the alternate to Assad regime would not serve American (read Israeli) interests in the region.

The current US policy will result unnecessary death of more Syrians, further revitalization of Takfiris, and continue erosion of America’s strategic position – virtually inevitable. A diplomatic solution to the situation is not only favored by Russia, China and Iran but also by the Assad government; it is also, far and away, the morally and strategically preferable scenario as far as America’s real, long-term interests are concerned,” said Leverett.

Earlier this week, Virginia State Republican Senator Richard Black in a open letter thanked president Bashar al-Assad for protecting country’s non-Muslim minorities especially Christians during the 3-year-old bloodshed.

  1. from voltairenet
    Syrian refugees in Lebanon had the opportunity to cast their ballots in the Syrian presidential elections as early as Wednesday 28 and Thursday 29 May 2014 at their country’s Embassy in Beirut.

    Western media report that Syrian refugees are in Lebanon to escape from the Alawite dictatorship, painting the presidential election as nothing more than a farce.

    However, according to Lebanese General Security sources, more than 100,000 Syrian expatriates flocked to their embassy on 28 May to vote, causing a massive traffic jam throughout the capital. As the Lebanese police (ISP) was trying to hold back the human wave, clashes broke out with Syrian voters in various places. The crowd was brandishing portraits of Assad and chanted “With blood and soul we sacrifice for you, O Bashar!” or “Only God, Syria and Bashar!.” Unable to cope with the situation, the Syrian embassy had to set up makeshift polling polling stations.
