Throughout a half a century of tyranny and criminality, the Assad regime has proven that it does not have the slightest veneer of honor and patriotism. The criminal Assad the father, former head of the regime, sold and abandoned the Syrian Golan Heights 54 years ago, without firing a single shot, and turned it into a safe haven for decades of occupation.
The son of this criminal, the current head of the regime, is committing similar crimes today, as he brought in occupying forces and enabled them to control the country in exchange for salvaging his regime and continuing to practice his tyranny and criminality.
The Assad regime did not dare to show this brutality or use force except against the Syrian people. Its jets, helicopters, and missiles only targeted civilians who demanded freedom, justice and dignity.
Its intelligence apparatuses did not arrest foreign spies or the corrupt, but cracked down on the noblest sons and daughters of Syria who came out chanting for freedom and demanding their legitimate rights.
The Israeli occupation of Arab land is a continuous war crime. There will be no acceptance of any waiver of the Syrian and Palestinian people’s right to their land, and the right of the Palestinian people to return to their land.
The struggle of the Syrian people will continue until its goals are achieved, namely getting rid of tyranny, restoring all of its occupied, usurped and sold lands, and forcing all the occupying forces and their militias out of Syria.
