DAMASCUS, SYRIA (6:45 P.M.) – Syrian President Bashar Assad received today a number of Islamic scholars from various Islamic countries worldwide amid rumors of fleeing the country ahead of an expected US strike.

The Islamic scholars are visiting Damascus to participate in the Conference of Islamic Nations Unity as the Syrian Army is liberating the last rebel-held pocket in East Ghouta.

In his speech to the scholars, Assad confirmed that “Muslims’  unity based on variety and adherence to the essence of religion is the only guarantee to protect our societies against Western schemes  aimed at weakening and dividing us”.

The Syrian President also underlined the important role undertaken be scholars to initiate an open dialogue amongst the basic religious institutions, as well as the youths and public.

Assad’s appearance comes amid rumors circulated by opposition media that the Syrian president left the country with his family as Washington threatens a deadly strike against the Syrian Army in response to an alleged chemical attack in Douma.

Assad did not leave Syria for his safety during the whole war, even when damascus was full of rebels. So why would anyone believe he would leave now?

Actually, you don’t need any scheme to have division into Islam. All you need is to contain it then it cannibalises itself as all seeds of self destruction are already planted from the start.

“Islam was initiated as something strange, and it would revert to its (old position) of being strange, and it would concentrate between the two mosques [Mecca and Medina]”
– Sahih Muslim Book 001, Hadith #0270
