Syrians filled the polling stations to defend their sovereignty and now fill the streets to celebrate the result


1622232364022.png

The Western leadership and establishment media have once again derided the Syrian presidential vote, but the people don’t care. They’re too busy celebrating the outcome of the election and the defeat of terrorism in their country.
The irony of media outlets and pundits from America tweeting about what they view as the failure to hold free and fair elections in Syria was not lost on some. I wrote yesterday of the jubilation I saw in eastern Ghouta, where Syrians were celebrating the arrival of election day and proudly voting. I also noted that people “in eastern Ghouta were put through a hell that most of us, living safely far from war, cannot begin to fathom.” Back in 2018, I had seen their tortured faces shortly after their liberation. That made seeing them this week smiling incredibly moving.

Just ahead of the vote, I predicted there would be Western cynicism if President Assad won again, which would mean the West had failed in its regime-change project. I was right.
Syrian analyst Kevork Almassian, of Syriana Analysis, tweeted a thread about the mass celebrations around Syria, including in Homs, once dubbed the “capital of the revolution” by the delusional crowd, and Aleppo, the city the Western media said “fell” when it was liberated of the terorists who reportedly murdered up to 11,000 civilians via their bombings and snipings.
He also noted that the media’s claims of Sunni Muslims hating Assad had no basis in reality (never mind the fact that the First Lady is Sunni, as are many in top leadership positions), tweeting photos of masses of Sunnis voting.
The Guardian, guilty of some of the filthiest war propaganda against Syrians, and usually reporting from Istanbul, deemed the 2021 elections “fake” and a “sham”. But the Guardian has never liked to give voice to the vast majority of Syrians in Syria, preferring instead to quote al-Qaeda-linked “media activists” and “unnamed sources”. So, it’s hardly surprising it would denigrate the event that Syrians are currently celebrating around the country.
Likewise, the BBC, another contender for the most outstanding war propaganda on Syria, unsurprisingly cited the “opposition” as calling the elections a “farce”.
The Western media likewise bleated “farce” when Syria provided 17 witnesses to testify at the Hague against the claims that Syria had used a chemical agent in Douma – a narrative that has been thoroughly debunked. And they’re still lying after all these years.


Speaking to Syrian media yesterday in Douma, Assad said of the West’s derision of the elections: “The best response to colonialist countries with histories of genocide and occupations was the mass turnout of the people for the vote.”
And, regarding what the West thinks of the legitimacy of those elections, he concluded: “Your opinions are worth zero, and you are worth 10 zeros.”
Amen to that.
On Wednesday, the government extended the time in which people could vote by an additional five hours, as they did back in 2014, due to the high turnout. It even had to provide more voting boxes. In fact, in 2014, in Lebanon, which hosts the largest per capita population of Syrian refugees in the world, voting was extended not merely by five hours, but by an entire day.
As I wrote recently, Western nations have closed Syrian embassies globally to prevent those eligible from voting. But interestingly, as I learned from political analyst Laith Marouf in our discussion this week, “Syrians in the US went to the embassy at the UN and voted. That was a direct challenge to American hegemony, since the Americans closed the Syrian embassy in DC. But there is still a Syrian embassy at the UN, and that they can’t touch, the Americans. So many people showed up at the UN headquarters, waving flags, and so on.”

According to Marouf, in Beirut, tens of thousands Syrians went to the Syrian embassy last week, but “members of the Lebanese Forces party cut the roads towards the embassy and attacked cars and buses carrying Syrian citizens,” allegedly killing one in front of his children and on national live television.
“The other two countries that host the majority of Syrian refugees or immigrant populations, Germany and Turkey, again blocked the Syrian votes from happening,” he said.
Marouf spoke of the candidates, noting there were three: a leader of the opposition, a former minister, and President Assad.
“They have been vetted through security, making sure that they stand for the sovereignty of Syria, given that Syria has been living under a global war of terrorism, led by the US.”

On the ground on election day​

I wrote on election day of the vibrance and peace I witnessed in Douma, and tweeted about the celebrations, about the Syrians singing and dancing. One woman in Irbeen, a village in eastern Ghouta, told me, “Today is historic. He is writing victory, a renewed victory for Syria, the general and protector of Syria, Bashar al Assad. The people you see coming, do so by their free will.”
A side note: from the cross necklace she wore, I knew the woman was a Christian. The “rebel” terrorists the West supports and whose sadistic death cult they would have installed to govern Syria would have persecuted, even killed, women like her.
And that’s the crux of it: Syrians aren’t just celebrating the leader they overwhelmingly love and respect, they’re celebrating the defeat of this terrorism in their country and of the imperialists’ regime-change project in Syria.




A Syrian-American friend, Johnny Achi, flew to Syria expressly to vote in the elections. He told me: “I’m a Syrian citizen and have lived in the United States for about 30 years. I’m here in Damascus to exercise my rights and duties as a Syrian citizen, since the US chose to close our embassies. As long as the embassies are closed, we’re going to keep making the trip here, to exercise our duty and our democratic right.”
“I chose Douma, in eastern Ghouta, under the ‘rebels’ until 2018, to show that there is a big turnout here, that people are happy to be back in a government-controlled area. Everyone I talked to is so jubilant that they got rid of all of Jaysh al-Islam, Faylaq al-Rahman, and all those brigades that were making their lives miserable,”
he said.
In Achi’s view, the US would not have accepted any of the candidates, no matter who won.
“They decided that this election was illegal. Their excuse this time is how can you have a democratic election when you have land under occupation? But the land is occupied by Turkey and the US. If they would leave us alone, we would have freed those three provinces and would have all 14 provinces under Syrian control,” he said. “But this vote will help us liberate those provinces still under occupation.”
The pundits will opine, the media will screech, but aside from addressing that, I don’t care, and Syrians don’t care because they’re too busy celebrating.
On Thursday, while the votes were still being counted, I passed through Umayyad Square, a massive roundabout in central Damascus, where a party was beginning. Later in the evening, I returned, staying until after the votes had been counted and Assad had been declared the winner. Electric doesn’t even begin to describe the mood of triumphant Syrians celebrating their victory.



I’ve been coming to Syria since 2014, making 15 visits in all, gathering many heartbreaking testimonies, being caught up in many dangerous encounters with mortars and terrorist sniper fire. I, too, celebrate the return of peace to Syria. But, moreover, I celebrate the Syrians’ shunning of Western diktats and for continuing to live their lives as they choose.
As I stood filming cheering Syrians, the results were announced. The crowd went wild and the party continued. Of course, Western media outlets won’t accept Assad’s 95.1% result, but those Syrians simply do not care. They know the West has lost the plot.

Is their any doubt about Assad's Presidential victory?
Any doubt the majority of the Syrians approve of their President?

If not, what was the 11 years war about?

Hillary Clinton might have the secret answer...

I'm very happy for them!

By watching this I wonder if we still believe we are smarter than the Syrians and Homsis we make fun.
I like asking Hariri, Jumblatt, Geagea and their followers how superior they feel they are to the Syrians who managed to elect a President, form a cohesive and productive government without Saudi interference or charity let alone the Saudis are visiting Damascus and speaking nicely to them and, after 11 years of resisting a sinister international plot that destroyed their infrastructure through ISIS, the Syrians have 24-hour electricity and capable of supplying Lebanon only if our sectarian mafia that destroyed Lebanon's infrastructure without war would accept their offer...

Guys, I do not think you need to suspect the election result - 95.1%

In the part of Syria still controlled by Russia Assad indeed can be and probably is that popular if not higher.

For years we looked down at Syria as a dictatorship. By now we realized dictatorship might be better choice for the people than a democracy controlled by an invisible deep state apparatus. At least, in dictatorship the dictator has a name and address that the people can revolt against and resort to a revolution against a specific leader if the regime becomes excessively abusive. On the other hand, the Lebanese lost their livelihoods and lifetime savings in a proud Western style democracy where every bank transaction is monitored and control by Uncle Sam who encouraged and protected the invisible hand that stole the people’s money thanks to their own agent/asset on site by the name of Riad Salameh. All that, so they can control and punish the people for making their personal free choices and, in broad day light, Lebanon’s “security service” in civilian clothing and some are masked, braking in activists homes arresting them and the lawyer who’s representing the victims of Lebanon’s democracy…

Did the Syrian people lose their money in Syrian banks under their Syrian “dictator”? Ironically, they lost it in Lebanon's Banks...

As a matter of fact, the most prosperous counties in the Middle East are Monarchies and dictatorship like UAE and Saudi Arabia where people can’t even vote. (
At least the Syrian people vote). Incidentally, the rich countries that failed are the ones that the US pretended to be doing them favors bringing them democracy like Iraq and Libya…

Funny. No?

Basho is elected overwhelmingly, do you know if the solution will start any soon or we have to wait for the administration transition and until the new one settles in??? 😁 😁 😁 😁 😁 😁

This is the best part for the Lebanese to hear and understand.
Lebanon is 10 years behind Syria when it comes to the so called Revolution and who owns it.
The geopolitical transformation in the region thanks in part to Assad's survival and the defeat of ISIS proved GMA's wise vision vis a vis Syria and the short visions of Hariri, Geagea and Jumblatt camps.
Hariri has a bigger problem than Saudi Arabia's lack of blessings for his government. His problem is his historic bet against Syria that is coming back to hunt him now. Hariri government if formed will be short lived. Lebanon's government cannot succeed in recovering its economy without open bordered and full cooperation with it's main and direct neighbor Syria. Not to mention the job opportunities for the Lebanese to help rebuild Syria
