Just read the following article in the daily fail and the blatant propaganda to smear and demonise Mrs. Assad made me so angry i just had to respond by typing (in RED) rejoinders under some of the comments as i think this is so typical of the level of “press’ coverage we have in the uk today. It’s not even worthy of being labelled gutter press but should be renamed SEWER PRESS! …..for that is where it belongs.
More power to the Assad’s and the Syrian people who had far more chance of solving their terrorist issues themselves without the SHAMELESS and calculated intervention of the war mongers in US/UK.

Syria’s first lady Asma al-Assad has denied claims that she has left the war-torn country in a show of support for her husband.
State television aired footage of Mrs Al-Assad insisting that she has been in Syria all along with President Bashar al-Assad and their children.
The clip showed the first lady planting trees with children and comforting the bereaved.
At home: An image grab taken from a video released by the Syrian state TV shows Syria’s first lady Asma al-Assad. She denied claims she has fled the war-torn country
Staying put: Wearing a t-shirt with a Syrian flag on, Mrs al-Assad was seen planting trees with youngsters
She was wearing a grey t-shirt with a Syrian flag printed on the front.
When asked about rumours that she was no longer in Syria, Mrs al-Assad said: ‘I am here, my husband and my children are here in Syria. It’s obvious that I’d be here with them.
‘How can I teach my children to love Syria if they don’t live here?
According to the Daily Telegraph, she added: ‘I was here yesterday, I’m here today and I will be heretomorrow.’
The footage comes a little more than a month after Mrs al-Assad, who was born in Britain, was criticised for a shameless PR stunt which saw a number of pictures of her helping some of the country’s refugees.
She was photographed ladling out soup to starving youngsters and comforting some of the countries bereaved families.
What exactly is shameless about helping people when they need it? Unlike our totally SHAMELESS, INEPT, ARROGANT FACE FILLINGTRAITORS who stand idly by while govt. procured kids are routinely abused & “disappeared” and MANY people culled in UK govt. hospitals while they routinely bomb anyone they see fit!!
PR stunt: The first lady has been criticised in the past for posing for pictures showing her comforting bereaved families and serving up soup to refugees….MY comment: At least she obviously gets out among her people and actually does something! when was the last time we saw mrs. blair/brown/cameron/clegg etc etc showing ANY help or empathy for common people???
Trying to win back favour: Mrs al-Assad is pictured comforting a woman who has lost a family member in the Syrian conflict as part of the ‘Syrian Government’s commitment to its families’ “trying to win back favour”….. who the hell writes this stuff? Looks like she is already WELL in favour!
Posed? The pictures provoked much criticism with Mrs al-Assad being described as a Marie Antoinette type figure after the pictures were posted on the Syrianpresidency Instagram page.. “much criticism” …..criticism from who exactly? the daily fail? Doesn’t look much like there is any criticism from the Syrian people and they are the ones that matter, not the self opinionated govt. mouthpiece that concocted this blatant and disgusting smear piece.
Mrs al-Assad has been accused of becoming more of a Marie Antoinette figure, completely out of touch with what is happening around her.
The only people out of touch are the satanic pedo’s and physcopaths running our country!
She has reportedly continued shopping for designer clothes and health products despite more than 100,000 people having been killed since the start of violence in the country in the spring of 2011.
‘I love ur designer clothes and shoes… paid for by the blood of your people! Seriously, u make Marie Antoinette look like an angel compared to you!,’ wrote one Instagram user in response to a photograph. Who was that person i wonder? and was it a Syrian person? i don’t think so!
‘I was here yesterday, I’m here today and I will be here tomorrow.’
Others commented on the ‘hypocrisy’ of Mrs al-Assad being pictured caring for young people when tens of thousands of children have died in the two-year Syrian war. “tens of thousands of children have died” ……YES THAT IS TRUE! ….AS A DIRECT CONSEQUENCE OF US/UK/ INVOLVEMENT AND PRE-PLANNED INTERFERENCE!!
But despite her appearances in publicity shots on social media sites, Mrs al-Assad has rarely been seen in public since the conflict in Syria begun.
Although this week’s broadcast was intended as a show of strength and unity with her husband, it is unclear when the footage was actually recorded.
The first lady grew up and was educated in London, studying at King’s College and working as a banker at JP Morgan.
Though a Muslim, Asma Assad went to a Church of England school, where she was known as Emma.
Trying to purvey normality: Mrs al-Assad is pictured presenting an award to a student who excelled in his exams.
I CAN ONLY IMAGINE HOW DIFFICULT IT MUST BE FOR THIS LADY…..KNOWING HOWDISGUSTINGLY CORRUPT AND EVIL is THE COUNTRY where she grew up AND WHICH IS TRAINING & SUPPLYING WEAPONS TO TERRORISTS WHO ROUTINELY RAPE & BUTCHER DEFENSELESS CIVILIANS INCLUDING EVEN TODDLERS AND WOMEN IN THE MOST BASIC, BARBARIC WAY.
She met her future husband while working for the bank – he was training in London at the time to become an eye surgeon.
The pair married in 2000.
Mrs al-Assad was rumoured to have been pregnant earlier in the year.
State television footage also showed her husband attending prayers in a mosque in Damascus to mark Eid al-Adha.
The broadcast was aired as an Imam in a rebel-stronghold of the Syrian capital Damascus issued a fatwa allowing people to eat cats and dogs in a bid to stave off starvation.
Cleric Salah al-Khatib reportedly lifted Islamic restrictions after medical and food supplies to the area were choked off by President al-Assad’s forces.
According to the Daily Telegraph, he said the move was a ‘reflection of the reality we are suffering’ and not religiously permitted.
Defiant: A smiling Mrs al-Assad is pictured with a group of students in Damascus. She was brought up and educated in London.
NOTICE THE WAY THAT EVERYONE IS VERY COMFORTABLE IN HER PRESENCE AND OBVIOUSLY THERE IS MUCH RESPECT AND REVERENCE TOWARDS THE FIRST LADY.
NOTE ALSO THE ABSENCE OF “HEAVIES” in close proximity which would be a MUST in UK/US!
