The Syria Times takes pleasure in publishing some of the just, accurate and exact statements made about H.E. President Bashar Al-Assad since the untimely demise of Syria's great builder, the late Hafez Al-Assad, the father of modern Syria. Still the memories and bitter tears of June 10th 2000 alive inside the lucky among the Syrians who have had the opportunity to be eye witnesses to the late Al-Assad's epic of steadfastness, correction, liberation and resistance.

The Syrians who in millions took to the streets on that day are but to take the streets and in more numbers celebrating the victory of all Syria and Arab masses and the free world against al-Qaeda Wahabi and Takfiri terrorism. The millions along with their post-2000 born family members are now to chant ''Allah, Syria, Bashar''. Bashar has proved himself to be not only the man of humanity, hope, amity, fraternity, salvation and safety, but as the invincible President of all presidents and leaders.

His Excellency President Al-Assad ''came out of the people and lived with them'' and has remained one of them. The Syrians have seen him ''everywhere whether in the work place or on the streets or in your picnics in order to learn from you and sharpen his determination by his contact with you and shall work for you as he has always done.

The man who has become a president is the same man who was a doctor and an officer and first and foremost is the citizen.'' ''Our dear people, My trust in you is infinite and so is my love to you.'' And so, your Excellency, you are the savior, guardian and the majority does adore, trust and believe in you. The following is but some of the statements issued about you during 2011:

  “President Assad is a very cultured man.”

He believes that his modest lifestyle is another component of his appeal…from conversations with residents in Damascus at least, it does in fact seem to make Assad somewhat better esteemed by his own people than many other Arab rulers.''

Andrew Gilligan, the Telegraph Journalist, October 30. 2011 

'' His Excellency President Bashar Al-Assad has accorded the most of care, human initiatives, generosity, sublime politeness and amity to the Artists.

Had President Al-Assad asked for my eyes, I would happily have given them to His Excellency as a gift in recognition of his great humanity.''
