This edition of Nahda Productions doesn’t do justice to the original compilation and the importance of exposing its content to the world. These and many other clips give an unprecedented insight into the imperial cult that has been secretly thriving in Syria for the past decades. They have done a great job in translating these clips, but the spin they put on it is neither factual, nor just, nor what the original compilers intended. This spin is nothing more than blind, hateful sectarianism, which is very damaging to this revolution and Syria as a whole. It is the opposite of what the Syrian people need and ask for, and in contradiction to their tradition and culture, not to mention our religion in general. The consequence of such a mentality becoming widespread in Syria is civil war, and if it will ever come to dominate the next government, another revolution could be expected sooner or later. The Syrian regime is well aware of this, and considering that its only way to survive is through war and chaos, this sectarianism is their policy, it has been from the very beginning and only increased more and more.
It is mentioned in the video that Nahda Productions merely translated this compilation, but the title “Shirk of the Syrian Alawi religion/regime” differs from the title of the original compilation below which is “Horns of the Syrian Regime, Encroachment on the Divine.” The first part of the video as quoted below cannot be found either.
Translation: A compendium of shocking clips exposing the blatant shirk of the Alawi religion. This is the non-Islamic cult whose Assad family was given patronage and leadership of Syria by the west under the Eisenhower presidency and thereafter. Through the personality-cult built around the Assad family, the Muslims of Syria have been denied self rule.
The reality is that this “encroachment on the divine” inside the Syrian regime and amongst its supporters is not exclusive to any particular religious background. This is only natural when the regime and its supporters are not from a single religious background to begin with. Moreover, those of them who worship the Assad family or the Ba`ath party have formed their own religion, regardless of what their background may be. That is what the original compilation intends to expose, as it should for it is the ideology behind intentional and indiscriminate massacre of thousands of innocent people in Syria.
