In power for 40 years, the current religious Alawite Assad family.

For 40 years, hated and despised by the Sunni majority.

An Alawite power in Syria, according to Daniel Pipes, a controversial but influential analyst and historian of the Middle East, the dictatorship of the Assad family, of confesione Alawite, took power in a coup in 1970, as the defense of the nation presuposto conspiracy against both Islamic and Western and the facts prove it today, the propaganda of the regime of Assad is acting consistently with his genealogy and confessional politics.

Faith is one of the least mentioned in the case, "Syria", while it should be an important key to understanding can explain many things. Perpetuate the power for forty years is inserted in the genetic code of the Alawites, which some consider this confessional minority akin to Shiism. In fact the oligarchy Assad, data links with Iran, shows a close link confessional as well as political, while maintaining a very fredo relationship with neighboring Saudis are Wahhabi-hanbalista-extraction-and of course with the rest of 'Sunni Islam.


The Alawites are born as a mystical sect (which in a way we could compare to Sufism, obvious, with different models and presuposti confessional) whose dogma and practices which are known only by the religious authorities.

The President Assad among the spiritual leaders of various denominations in Syria.

Some do not even recognize their membership in the Umma, the Muslim community. Others do not even consider them to be Muslims, their beliefs being the product of a syncretism which includes Orthodox rites, Sunnis, Shiites, Christians. "They believe in reincarnation, consider only the symbolic pillars of Islam, do not fast during Ramadan or make pilgrimage to Mecca," writes John Myhill University of Haifa.

Confessional community persecuted for centuries in Syria, came to power with the Baath party in the 60s, beating the domain of secular Sunni elite. Settled their people in the military hierarchy and the security apparatus and guaranteed the armed wing to resist religious pressures, and internal and external policies, the Assad family today, despite the reforms and opening up to multi, is using force against dissidents that animate part of the population, and a logic of action in the protection and preservation of a belief, this does not exclude the political and economic interests (oil), the alliances in the field of Islamic and not, but it is another matter, which requires a different type analysis of geo-politics.

A population that calls for reforms, for the freedom and rights, which compares with a defined autocratic and anti-democratic regime, and this is the perspective from which it is viewed in the West and overseas, the Syrian revolution, in the same spirit with which it is compared very superficially to the recent Arab Spring, which many other reasons and interests ociidentali originate in the form oculta.


We do not hide that a dictatorship is a form of government negative, but we should know the history of a country rooted ethnic and religious, and today its economic potential, to fully understand this "spring", and not only, but we believe it is a duty to take into account the theme of "globalization" and its obvious failure.

Only in this way can we fully understand certain issues Middle East, Arab-Islamic, and those behind them, and which the Western powers, who are looking for a hegemonic economic role to save their economies, and it is known that the euro " card "good for the stock market and speculation that the dollar is in a state of bankruptcy, then?? ....


We can support without a shadow of denial that politics today or better governments, especially those of old Europe, from the colonial past, are slaves of the system Lobbies, originally incurred by the bank.

Banking system, which now tries to survive to himself, after being strangled or internal economies riccorendo aid policy, so hence, the need to push governments to other places where there is still market and raw materials to exploit lobbies, which have to pay off the bank who unnatural gaming, with the game of "bags" (virtual money) and taking possession and driving it.

A similar situation is for the United States, the recent flop show the bank. What can I say?? ... After the near-collapse of the "new economy" here is that the brains of big business and the economy came up with "globalization" always with the support of the banks, who are suffering today if not for bankruptcy "played" with headlines stock market to finance the lobbies.

By engaging in this perverse "virtual game" even "bonds" so-called "primary" because the politics, governments, has had to incur a public debt not only internal, but also that these "gentlemen" who involved the whole system at the international level.

But this would not be a problem if you do not intacasse citizens, who increasingly like sheep all'amasso must settle the accounts of governments that were absent or victims of lobbies and conesso of the banking system or rather the "infamous globalization."

So perhaps, though not desirable, a "dictatorship conscious" would perhaps be better than a government, so-called "democratic" but inconsistent and inattentive or external systems dominated by politics, and this is not "pairs a heresy."


But in the case rittornando Syria: Someone, however, is not so hasty in judging. 75% of Syrians are Sunni Muslims made up only 13% are Shia, Ismaili and Alawite. The Druze are 3%, Christian 9% including the Orthodox component. Religious minorities have always enjoyed tolerance and protection by the Assad family.

It could not be otherwise, in order to maintain a similar mosaic, but it is now all over the Sunni majority to demonstrate against Assad's Alawite mainly because he despises.

If the power were to be changed, the location in Syria of tomorrow diverebbe great uncertainty for the entire religious system, and above all for the Alawites.

Who are the Alawites it is a religious group found mainly in Syria, the term ʿ Alawi shows their reverence that this religious group has to Ali, the cousin and son in law of the prophet Muhammad.


THE secretary general of the Arab League, Nabil al-Arabi, the Hayat newspaper published its proposal that the organization will present to President Bashar al-Assad.

Prosta consists of thirteen points. First of all: you are prompted immediate discontinuation of the repression of civilians, the release of political prisoners, laformazione of a national unity government and the announcement of free presidential elections.

Nabil al-Arabi argues that it is necessary "to avoid the risk of a civil war of a sectarian basis and avoid the excuses for foreign intervention, not only that but President Assad must publicly announce that it intends" to form a national unity government, headed by a Prime Minister accepted by the opposition. "

The transitional government will have to prepare transparent and pluralistic elections, to be held in 2014. The new parliament will elect the members of a "constituent committee" to draw up a democratic constitution which will then be approved by the people "in a referendum."

The Baath party, in power for 50 years, will have to accept "the transition to a democratic regime based on the election results."


Condemnation by King Abdullah unacceptable violence

Even Saudi Arabia withdrew its ambassador in Damascus, considering the violence of the repression enacted by President Bashar al-Assad against anti-government protesters unacceptable, the Arab League issued a statement in which it strongly condemns the violence and repression of the revolt by the Assad government, as denounced by anti-regime activists,


United States increased sanctions against companies who support Assad.

Russia, India and Brazil are pushing for a "soft line"

While continuing the army's offensive in major Syrian cities, the diplomatic world seems increasingly divided. The straoridinaria meeting of the Security Council, which lasted two hours, ended with a stalemate.

A share is the decision on the measures to be taken to stop the violence Syria: Western countries would like a greater interventionism, while other states, including in particular Brazil, India and Russia, are the promoters of the "soft line."

During the meeting, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has read the UN report on the clashes, according to which the beginning of the protests would die two thousand people, trapped 13 thousand and three thousand other would disappear. Some mind-boggling numbers but will then be true?? ...

The media, by their nature they use to make dramatic numbers in order to make interesting news or work to make desatabilizzato a government, drawing on this popular international and dislikes and then maybe to justify external intervention to protect the interests of third parties .

(See Iraq yesterday with Sadan where the government is now in the hands of those who do not know well, but the oil was too "throat" to the interests of familia-Busch Cheney & compani, moral and smenbrato a country today is experiencing a civil war sottoranea more or less divided between religious movements and international interests, primarily in the U.S. and then eventually the Anglo-French and Italian ENI., but also neighboring Syria and Iran are not divorced from interests in the area).

At the same time, the case for Syria, also mobilize diplomatic channels of the Middle Eastern countries. In Rabat, in a note of the Moroccan Foreign Ministry, says that the kingdom of Morocco has expressed "strong concern for the sad events" occurring in Syria.

In Egypt, activists are trying to collect a million signatures to pressure the government to decide to expel the diplomat represented Damascus to Cairo.

The spokesman for the Iranian Alaeddin Boroujerdi, visiting the Egyptian capital, said that "Iran supports the efforts of the Islamic countries to end the crisis" and called for "dialogue." Boroujerdi has criticized Turkey's position, which would have implemented a policy of "anti-Syrian" and recalled how Syria should be defended by the American interference.

The United States, however, have decided to tighten sanctions against banks and telcos who support the Assad regime, in particular the Commercial Bank of Syria, who was accused of financing the purchase and production of non-conventional weapons and Syriatel company, led by a cousin of President Assad, held a corrupt enterprise, by whom and how we do not know?? but that's another story.
