Aoun: Syria Is Actually Heading towards Democracy unlike Arab Countries which Toppled  Governments

Oct 11, 2012

BEIRUT, (SANA)- Leader of the Change and Reform Bloc in Lebanon, Michel Aoun, stressed that Syria will achieve victory over the conspiracy and will turn into a democratic state that will be a model for the rest of the countries currently fighting it.

In an interview with the Syrian TV, Aoun affirmed that Syria will not fall down and will win the war waged on it by the conspiring countries, reiterating that Syria is actually heading towards democracy unlike the Arab countries which toppled their governments and is the closest to democracy from any other Arab country.

He said Syria will put an end to the radical extremist surge in the region and its win of the war would result in a new world order as the U.S. unilateralism is no longer acceptable.

Aoun emphasized that despite the painful human and big economic losses, Syria's steadfastness in the face of the conspiracy has been very strong, highlighting that the administrative, judicial and military structure of the country has not been affected by the crisis.

He said Syria constitutes an advanced model of humanity with all its social components and it has always worked steadfastly in the face of Israel, "which stresses that it is impossible to bring it down."

He considered that what is happening in the region is not an 'Arab Spring' but rather an 'Arab Hell' that was planned in advance in the context of the 'creative chaos' declared by U.S. Secretary of State in 2006 that is aimed at establishing a 'New Middle East' based on making peoples fight each other.

Aoun said when peoples want new governments they aspire for the best, but what happened was that the new governments have leaped backward and not forward.

He highlighted how the freedom of belief and choice of social lifestyle is being practiced in Syria, while other Arab countries are imposing the way of eating, drinking and dressing.

He also referred to the amendment of the Syrian constitution and the launching of political and party pluralism and journalistic freedoms, noting if that was the opposition's goal, it would have come to dialogue and waited for the next presidential elections so as for the Syrian people to decide their leader through the ballot boxes.

He reiterated that the leadership in Syria is the one defending democracy while the Western countries want to overthrow this leadership by force completely ignoring the Syrian people's desire.

Aoun stressed that the security of Syria is Lebanon's security, noting that the real meaning of the policy of self-distancing adopted by the Lebanese government is for this government to keep away from taking sides and keep its people away from carrying out acts of riot in the neighboring countries.
