Syrian President Bashar al-Assad blamed some Western leaders for the terrorism and refugee problems facing Europe.

During a meeting on Sunday with the visiting delegation of the European Parliament headed by Vice-President of the Parliament’s Committee on Foreign Affairs Javier Couso, the President discussed the situation in Syria, the terrorist war waged on it and the growing destructive impacts of the spread of terror to world regions.

Assad said that what is happening in Syria and the Arab region would greatly affect Europe given the geographical vicinity of the two regions and the cross-cultural communication.

He held the leaders of some Western states responsible for the problems of terrorism and extremism and the refugee flows currently facing Europe for having adopted policies that are against the interests of the peoples of these states.

The President slammed those Western leaders for providing the political cover and support to the terrorist organizations in Syria.

Striking a relevant note, President al-Assad said the European parliamentarians could play a significant role to correct the wrong policies of their governments that have caused terrorism to spread and led to worsening the living conditions of the Syrian people due to the economic blockade they imposed on them, forcing many Syrians to leave their country and seek refuge in other states.

For their part, the European delegation members said their visit to Syria and the suffering of the Syrian people they have seen firsthand would make them put effort to the effect of correcting the policies of the European governments and pressuring them into lifting the sanctions.

The European parliamentarians affirmed the need to keep Syria’s sovereignty intact, stressing that the Syrians alone should decide their country’s future without any foreign interference.

On March 27th, President al-Assad received a French delegation that included parliamentarians, intellectuals, researchers and journalists and said during the meeting that such visits by parliamentary delegations and having these figures inspect firsthand the situation in the Syrian cities could be useful for them to efficiently work to correct the wrong policies adopted by some governments, including that of France, towards what is happening in Syria.

Get info : Since Bashar in power, Israel had even less problems with Syria than they had with Egypt or Jordan (not because of these countries governments as the peace treaties really work, but ‘case of some idiots in their population!). Irael was very happy with Bashar at least b4 things got wrong… Frankly, what do yo think Israel prefers? A secular Assad or some fanatic ploting to kill jews because of a stupid book?

Well, there’s a mid east country that has clearly terrorism as 2nd export product… 15 of their people hijacked 4 planes and crashed them against the WTC and the Pentagon… 100Md$ spent since 1979 in spreading their sick ideology, now see the results… I even ask myself if in fact, the US and some western countries weren’t deceived in trusting them… Taqqiyya and double agendas for 37 years… I hurts butts…

Assad is right and that is a fact. ISIS and the whole chaos in Syria is because elites in the West and Israeli lobby in the West want to split up Syria into several parts. This is an open secret. These people are real devils.

In fact, some are really evil, but some other have clearly been deceived, and well, I think even the US have more or less been deceived : there is clearly a double agenda in some of the middle-eastern circles… There are great masters of taqqiyya and it’s high time to open the files about them : this time they’ve gone too far… In fact, som western polititians clearly take bribes from these mofos, some other fear for their economies but are not fooled at all. Just remember the ErdoGollum/al-Jubeir talks when they both complained that E.U. didn’t helped AT ALL… Read more »

Even inside US state, there are people that are far to agree with all this s**t and BTW, foreign politics is the same, whatever the party that wins elections is. It’s even more complicated when a party is the govt and the other helds the house of representatives and/or the senate… The best thing we can hope for is Hillary being indicted and Sanders winning the elections : Trump is a madman, Hillary’s a devil. And we can’t even be sure that Sanders will be able to do anything or not get a bullet in his head from a sniper…… Read more »

This is a little more complicated. CIA backs FSA, FSA which is supposed to be pro-democracy in fact allies with jihadis backed by KSA/Turkey/Qatar (and they’re not much better than IS), but yeah, there are a lot of mercenaries. IS, with is te b*****d child of al-Qaeda and Saddam seize oil areas and then pay more than the others, mercenaries go were they make more money, IS goes more powerfull. Thus FSA has several factions i.e. their “Southern Front” faction has vowed to be neutral and only fights IS and they don’t bark aloha snackbar like most FSA factions. There… Read more »
