He's no true democrat, but Syria is far more democratic in comparison to most Muslim Arab countries, like Jordan or Saudi Arabia. :wink:


You won't get away with that Kuru, it does not fit the propaganda that LR and the Koala have been indoctrinated with! It is what the Syrians say about Assad and the way they vote that counts and that is clearly at odds with what these two are led to believe. The Syrians certainly do not want the alternative that the coalition has tried, and failed, to force upon them ..... they have seen what happened in Libya, Iraq and Afghanistan, which are yet more failures by the US and its puppet's.

:lol:

You see - that's the sort of (everyday) supercilious post which tends to make you a pariah on forums. "Propaganda" "Indoctrinated" "Led to believe". :roll:

It's something I've gotten used to over the years but when you wander around in Sherwood Forest you had better be prepared to hear a lot of it. :eyecrazy: :lol:

Are we dragging you away from important business on your new forum? :D

I wonder if they hold elections like they do in Syria in Sherwood Forrest.

Maybe there is something in the water there that reduces their IQ to dingbat level where they can see pigs fly and believe in Syria's election process where Assad gets 99% of the popular vote. So popular he is despite the 55 militias that want to kill him. Interesting.

He is so loved, that even those that lose all their immovable properties vote for him. In this alternate universe of lunacy, all the Greek Cypriots will vote for Denktash!

He did not get 99%!! And the reasons he got a high percentage are explained here:
https://www.macleans.ca/news/world/5-th ... -in-syria/
At the time they had about 6 million refugees, however there were 3 main candidates plus more than 30 others, and he got about 11M out of 15M registered votes. If you work out the numbers, assuming everybody had participated in the election, he would still be elected, albeit with something like 55-60%

Oh FFS Pyro. All the candidates have to be approved by Assad himself and that source of your is a Shiite source.

There were also another 7 million people not in Government Controlled areas. And these people will never be allowed to vote ever, or hold their property under Law 10

I find it very strange that for someone who is such a vociferous supporter of Israel and their ‘land redistribution’ policy regarding Palestinian land, that you could possibly find fault with Assad’s latest Version of Law 10?

At least with Assad they get a year to provide some proof of ownership, the opportunity to apply for inclusion and are treated just as Syrians. All Syrians will get the same treatment with some proof of ownership.

In Israel, those Palestinians the Israeli’s decide to take the land from have the homes they are living in bulldozed, without any compensation and the land is blatantly awarded exclusively to Jewish settlers

How do you reconcile your view of Law 10 with the Laws being enacted daily in Palestine/Israel? :?:


BTW: The 7m you refer to in occupied areas were invited to vote but were prevented by YOUR 'moderate' terrorists from doing so. Presumably because they knew that their prisoners would vote for Assad, having had a taste of the Sharia Paradise on offer!

Why not compare Syria with Qatar and United Arab Emirates? Democracy isn't exactly the only measure here. You don't have to be democratic to be a good country. This standard applies to Syria as well. The fact that they are "democratic" or not is not really an issue at all, or even a consideration. There is no problem if Syria was a Dictatorship like Saudi Arabia, or Jordan. The issue is the rights of some 14 million people, half of which are now refugees outside of Syria and can't return, and the other half are displaced inside Syria and can't return to their properties. It's about their rights as citizens, getting gainful employment, maintaining their titles over their immovable properties, getting access to education and health, and living in security and safety.

Where would you rather be? Syria or UAE? The UAE isn't democratic either but what really is the problem with that when you live and work in Dubai?

One more thing, Iran and Syria are on the same scale as Saudi Arabia. It's just that one Wahhabi and the other Shiite. But Iran isn't exactly high on the freedom index.

And secondly, we are talking about Syria, not Saudi Arabia or Jordan.

I have been both in Syria and UAE, koala. :)

I would definitely choose Syria, because it has a large Christian Orthodox minority and more tolerance to Christians in general. :wink:

I would never choose to live in an Islamic backward country, like Turkey or UAE. :wink:

Indeed, mate. The problem lies in the fact that they are slaves of the NWO. :wink:

Well mate, if you would choose Syria, then you are VERY STUPID!

And let's get this straight, you prefer Syria and earn an average salary of $1748 USD per year? Gosh Kuru, I knew you were fairly simple but this is another revelation. :lol:

Maybe all the Cyprus Airways pilots in Dubai and Abu Dhabi should leave UAE (Emirates and Etihad) and go work for Syrian Airlines which are embargoes and can't fly anywhere other than China, Iran, and Russia.

Dream on mate!
