BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:00 A.M.) – The Syrian Foreign Ministry slammed French President Emmanuel Macron in a new statement that was released by the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) on Monday.

According to the statement, the Syrian Foreign Ministry said that Macron’s recent statements on Syria show that he has refused to abandon his failed policies.

Furthermore, the Syrian Foreign Ministry criticized France’s history, calling it a “dark legacy of colonialism and enslaving people.”

“Those who provided all sorts of support to terrorist groups, and whose foreign minister described al-Nusra terrorists as rebels, and worked to undermine political initiatives to resolve the crisis in Syria lack the minimum of credibility, because they talk about a political process with colonialist Western criteria that contradict the Syrians’ interests and aspirations,” the Foreign Ministry source told SANA.

The Foreign  Ministry went on to affirm that Syria is not the least bit interested in having relations with a state that contributed to the terrorists they fought.

Well, if Walid Muallem considers Syria’s history, and it’s a very long history since traces of settlements from about 9,000 years ago were found in Damascus, he may discover that Syria has a way longer dark history of colonisation and slavery, not speaking about human sacrifices to Ba’al or Marduk, Just considering how Islam imposed itself in Syria is not for the fainted hearts : the so-called “Army of Muhammad” that submitted this hugely Christian country in 636AD just either killed or took in slavery (near) ALL males when females were taken as sëx-slaves, forced into marriage to Muslims or… Read more »

Awesome analysis DBS. Islam has ruined many a countries. It reminds me of the Black Spiderman and the alien creature which attaches itself to the host and amplifies the dark thoughts.

Being a guest I wonder how come Al Masdar is allowing you to post so much content. If I type anything more than 2 lines, AMS gives a warning saying under moderation 🙂 🙂

They are not You knowing nothing about free speech is other opinions. Syria never was a country as well – You have to go back to the Bagdad Khalifat 1258 which were collapsed by Mongols, to fin anything near. News to me Ottomans and many others took slaves there as well as Syria was not fx Aleppo and Raqqa provinces at all. Syrians also not even liberated themselves. France did – even it very much was for own purpose. Defending a Dicatatirship acting like the Feudals in the Ottomans like that is just Assadsky. A thin one string systems, which… Read more »

@Long Live Syria, actually he is no guest but lost his pass some wile ago. AMN has no censorship. Which is IMHO a plus.

Some of the things he said are true. The Muslim rules of war took all land and treated Christians as dhimmi at best. Syria was a Christian not Muslim land then.

But France had no right to set up a colony in Syria the Arabs had been the Entente’s allies in WW I and Wilson’s 14 point promised self determination to all not only to Europeans. And the French had no right to sell Hatay to Turkey.

What a joke, talking about a 2.000 year old history to make conclusions about the present. France armed these salafist groups and bought oil through Turkey coming from ISIS. It even pushed the EU in 2013 to start arming them officially. That’s the present. Or should we talk about Louis XIV, Napoleon, the slaughter of Algiers in 1830, Vietnam and so on? Did Syria armed terror groups in France?

To me its a completly different story. You probatly are learned from before birth, That Assads are Great Leaders. They are lousy third class ones of the worst. That well described by many from the outside. All opposition systematicly has been jailed, tortured and killed, so the only option for any opposition here became Jihadist, because they are the only ones, which are not afraid to die. TO DIE BECAUSE HAVING OWN OPPINIONS. And was Assads able to defend the territory SDFs has now. NO. So they mainly kurds helped themselves for own reasons and did it. But not because… Read more »

@svine beach, the Alawites were suppressed under the Sunni for centuries. Much of Your claims come from Sunni that feel thwarted of their position at the top. And they find it unjust that other religions have a fair or better chance in a wasta based society.

@Willy, You are mistaken. France armed and helped the Kurds against attempted IS genocide and not the other US and KSA vetted Jihadi.

You talk about the slaughter of Algiers in the 1830ies and before. Obviously do not know or overlook why the Europeans went to destroy the Pirate based economy of the Barbary Coast.

Syria armed terror groups before this Syrian war but that does not justify anything that the US and Israel do now.

How about you starting talking about what the filthy Franch did to the North Africans up until the 1960s? Syria never supported terrorist groups against the West (these are all unfounded allegations with no solid evidence to support this). The French killed millions of innocent people up until the 1980s. Just check out this video and you’ll shut up! Syria is not even on there, but France is ranked as 6th place: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-IGHByjToO4

So chew on that moron 😉

@Daeshbag-Sux your opinions are wrong and that’s okay 🙂

Because Syria abolised slavery long ago, while the French were still enslaving people in the 1960s before they decided to murder all their slaves. Did Syria have any slaves in the 1960s? No. So why do you keep lying 😉

@George, but I hope You know why the French originally went to the North African Barbary Coast slave and piracy states. The Muslim pirate city states had for centuries savaged the European coasts with their raids. The word razzia comes from the word ghazi. And is “a hostile raid for purposes of conquest, plunder, and capture of slaves, especially one carried out by Moors in North Africa.”

@Stern Daler, Yes that is correct. However, that does not give the right for the French to enslave, rape and murder many innocent people living there who had nothing to do with the raids.

You have failed to comment on my video or the fact that the French have committed many serious criminal offences. You have also stated that “Syria armed terrorist groups” – can you please provide evidence of your sayings as it all “means nothing without evidence” (quote from Bashar Al-Assad the Lion 😉 )

@George, the French acted like the Muslim pirates. I was not justifying either behavior. I just pointed people that are not aware of the historical causes. I know that the French have committed crimes. They are our neighbors, we fought for centuries and they are sore losers. Most colonial nations committed crimes by current standards in their colonies. You did not have to prove that e.g. with a video. The Syrians officially supplied what some consider terrorist groups during the Lebanese war, plus against Israel and the PKK against Turkey until 1998. But that was before the current war –… Read more »
