Assade francoeur biography
Korean army units fighting for Syria regime: Soon after the death of Bassel, Hafez al-Assad made the decision to make Bashar the new heir apparent.
Assad was quoted in The Guardian as telling the Qatari paper:. The US was the only party qualified to sponsor any direct talks, [Assad] told the paper, but added that the Bush administration "does not have the vision or will for the peace process. It does not have anything. According to leaked American cablesAssad called Hamas an "uninvited guest" and said "If you want me to be effective and active, I have to have a relationship with all parties.
Hamas is Muslim Brotherhood, but we have to deal with the reality of their presence," comparing Hamas to the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood which was crushed by his father Hafez al-Assad. He also said Hamas would disappear if peace was brought to the Middle East. Assad has indicated that the peace treaty that he envisions would not be the same kind of peace treaty Israel has with Egypt, where there is a legal border crossing and open trade.
In a interview with Charlie RoseAssad said "There is a big difference between talking about a peace treaty and peace. A peace treaty is like a permanent ceasefire. There's no war, maybe you have an embassy, but you actually won't have trade, you won't have normal relations because people will not be sympathetic to this relation as long as they are sympathetic with the Palestinians: During the visit of Pope John Paul II to Syria inAssad requested an apology to Muslims for the Crusades and criticised Israeli treatment of Palestinians, stating that "territories in Lebanon, the Golan and Palestine have been occupied by those who killed the principle of equality when they claimed that God created a people distinguished above all other peoples.
Semites are a race and [Syrians] not only belong to this race, but are its core. Judaism, on the other hand, is a religion which can be attributed to all races. When I say Israel carries out killings, it's the reality: I didn't speak about Jews," and criticised Western media outlets for misinterpreting his comments. In FebruaryAssad backed an initiative to restore 10 synagogues in Syria, which had a Jewish community numbering 30, inbut only Jews by Assad met with U.
In response to Executive Order which mandated refugees from Syria be indefinitely suspended from being able to resettle in the United States, Assad stated that he believes President Trump's intentions were to protect the United States from terrorists.
He explained "It's not against the Syrian people, it's against the terrorists that would infiltrate some of the immigrants to the West. It happened in Europemainly in Germany and could happen in the United States in the future.
North Korea has allegedly aided Syria in developing and enhancing a ballistic missiles programme. InAssad condemned the September 11 attacks. He was quoted as saying, "Is there really an entity called al-Qaeda? Was it in Afghanistan? Does it exist now?
Assad's relationship with al-Qaeda and the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant has been subject to much attention. Injournalist and terrorism expert Peter R. Neumann maintained, citing Syrian records captured by the U. During the Iraq Warthe Assad government was accused of training jihadis and facilitating their passage into Iraq, with these infiltration routes remaining active until the Syrian Civil War ; US General Jack Keane has stated that "Al Qaeda fighters who are back in Syria, I am confident, they are relying on much they learned in moving through Syria into Iraq for more than five years when they were waging war against the U.
Secretary of State John Kerry claimed that the Assad government has tactically avoided ISIS forces in order to weaken "moderate opposition" such as the Free Syrian Army as well as "purposely ceding some territory to them [ISIS] in order to make them more of a problem so he can make the argument that he is somehow the protector against them". Inthe al-Nusra Frontal-Qaeda 's Syrian affiliate,  issued a bounty worth millions of dollars for the killing of Assad.
Assad condemned the November Paris attacksbut added that France's support for Syrian rebel groups had contributed to the spread of terrorism, and rejected sharing intelligence on terrorist threats with French authorities unless France altered its foreign policy on Syria. During the Civil War, the Druze in Syria have largely sought to remain neutral, "seeking to stay out of the conflict", while according to others over half support the Assad government despite its relative weakness in Druze areas.
It has been reported at various stages of the Syrian Civil War that other religious minorities such as the Alawites and Christians in Syria favour the Assad government because of its secularism,   however opposition exists among Assyrian Christians who have claimed that the Assad government seeks to use them as "puppets" and deny their distinct ethnicity, which is non-Arab. Inthe Christian Syriac Military Councilthe largest Christian organization in Syria, formed an alliance with the Free Syrian Army opposed to Assad,  joining other Syrian Christian militias such as the Sutoro who had joined the Syrian opposition against the Assad government.
In JuneAssad won a controversial election held in government-controlled areas and ignored in opposition held areas  and Kurdish areas governed by the Democratic Union Party  with Individuals interviewed in a "Sunni-dominated, middle-class neighborhood of central Damascus" claimed wide support for Assad among the Sunnis in Syria. Assad's support from the right-wing has mostly been from the far-rightboth before and during the Syrian Civil War. David Duke hosted a televised speech on Syrian national television in Nick Griffinthe former leader of the British National Partywas chosen by the Assad government to represent the UK as an ambassador and at government-held conferences; Griffin has been an official guest of the Syrian government three times since the beginning of the Civil War.

President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko has expressed confidence that Syria will eliminate the current crisis and continue under the leadership of President al-Assad "the fight against terrorism and foreign interference in its internal affairs".
At the outset of the Syrian Civil War, Syrian government networks were hacked by the group Anonymousrevealing that an ex- Al Jazeera journalist had been hired to advise Assad on how to manipulate the public opinion of the United States. Among the advice was the suggestion to compare the popular uprising against the regime to the Occupy Wall Street protests.

Do you think that there are different standards for men and women recording artists? Where do I start?
I think the Haitian music industry producers have not given the women a chance to evolve in the business. I can only think of two producers who believe in working with women.
We have to work twice as hard—if not three times harder to prove ourselves. What are you working on right now and what should we expect to hear from you in the future? I am actually finishing the work on my first solo album that will come out at the beginning of It will contain twelve titles and represents a different side of me.
It will come out in the upcoming weeks and will also be part of the new album. My daughter and my niece are featured in the video, which will be a first for women artists in the Haitian music industry.
They are both talented and they can also sing and rap. I have been working very hard with a great team—including my sisters—on this new production and I want it to make a great impact when it comes out. I want to please my fans as well as the new fans-to-be! I want to thank you so much for the support and keep up the great work. Live, love and music. Your email address will not be published.
