Assad joined the huge crowds of Syrian citizens went out to the main squares and streets of Damascus in support of the vision of Syria outlined in the speech given by President Assad on Tuesday, stressing national unity and determination to move forward in the reform process taking place in Syria.

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has once again vowed to crush foreign-backed conspiracies against his government, saying the crisis in the country is nearing its end.

Addressing tens of thousands of supporters in the Syrian capital, Damascus, Assad said on Wednesday that the support of Syrians for his government gives him power to fight hard against the external conspiracy trying to destabilize the country.

“I wanted to be with you so I can draw strength from you in the face of everything that Syria is subjected to. It was important that we maintain our faith in the future. I have that faith in the future and we will undoubtedly triumph over this conspiracy,” the Syrian president told his supporters.

On Tuesday ­Beirut-based political analyst Kamel Wazne said that some Arab countries have adopted the US agenda and will raise no objections if Syria slides into civil war if it keeps the country from being a major regional power. Nevertheless he believes that Assad has really solid support among Syrians, who have witnessed how the country has changed over the last decade.

“[Assad] has a solid record on politics, on education, on infrastructure, on investment, so there is really solid support for the president,” Wazne explained. “I think the Assad regime is listening to the people and the president has promised reforms. He promised constitutional reform and he put a deadline by March, and he said he is going to put a referendum to the people.”

“And that is what has really upset a lot of these Arab countries which do not have democracy themselves,” Wazne added. “They talk about democracy, they talk about the rule of law, but they have none.”

US president-elect Joe Biden and the Middle East

If Joe Biden rejoins the Iran nuclear ‎agreement ‎ and adopts Obama’s approach to the two-state ‎solution, with Palestine issue, which I believe he might do, since the ‎compromises made in the democratic party ‎between the Progressives ‎and the liberals during the ‎selection of the presidential candidate , indicated ‎that might be happening soon

Joe Biden and Kamala Harris

Interview with Saeb Shaath, Author and Middle East affairs expert and David Yaghoubian, Prof. of History, CSU San Bernardino.

Iran FM advises US president-elect to abandon Trump’s ‘disastrous lawless bullying’.

Shaath Said: “Zionist entity Prime Minister Benjamin ‎Netanyahu and Saudi Crown Prince ‎Mohammed bin Salman have kept silent since ‎American media projected Biden’s will win.‎ We can recall the Netanyahu-Kushner plan ‎which believed in and relied on Trump’s victory ‎for the second term, that would be followed by ‎Netanyahu’s victory in the elections, aiming to ‎implement their deal of the century and the ‎normalization of Arab countries ties with the ‎Zionist’ entity,‎”

Shaath went to say :” it did not accrue to the planners that ‎Trump would become the only American ‎president in three decades not be elected to ‎serve a 2nd term in office.‎”

Shaath added “what might do away with their planes …I think Biden ‎will revive the nuclear agreement with Iran, ‎since it was an Obama- Biden’s admiration ‎achievement …he will do it in a way that avoids ‎any clash with Zionist entity.”

Shaathe went on t o say “‎ If Joe Biden rejoins the Iran nuclear ‎agreement ‎ and adopts Obama’s approach to the two-state ‎solution, with Palestine issue, which I believe he might do, since the ‎compromises made in the democratic party ‎between the Progressives ‎and the liberals during the ‎selection of the presidential candidate , indicated ‎that might be happening soon.‎”

Shaath added “That means everything that Netanyahu and ‎Kushnaier, dreamed about in making the ‎Zionist entity the pivotal state in the ‎Middle East with the Gulf States and the rest of ‎the Arabic countries as their satellite States ‎such dream is over. ‎ Since its clear that Biden needs to pay attention ‎and to focuses US resources on fighting covid-19 and ‎to Jump Startg the US economy”. ‎

‎ Shaath concluded “Since the Netanyahu – Kushner’s Deal of the ‎Century and Arab normalisation relation with ‎Zionist entity geared up to create a military ‎alliance to face Iran… Joe Biden with reviving the US commitment to the Iran nuclear agreement does not need such alliance…as well Joe does not have a Dime to waist on Netanyahu’s dreams. ..This is the new way we going to see it happening in the region.”
