wonder how much he is being paid to make this public statement ......

I don't know. The video couldn't be independently verified and has now been apparently pulled off YouTube.

Real defection? Or just another publicity stunt by the rebels? Both are likely.

We will see.
We are all prisoners of our own device.

The @@@ ...
Where is the @@@ ... when her husband is decimating his own People day by day ...

she would know quite well that the rebels trying to tear Syria apart are being funded by outsiders.

as a woman she would more than likely feel the pain of everu mother that is or has lost a child to the violence.

she is no fool and her indictment of the zionist regime and its brutal treatment of the Palestinian people in that old utube video is more like the common voice the is raised around the world against the zionists.

she sees peace as something the zionist can contribute to but refuse to.

good video and words of wisdom from a very level headed woman. the only people who would disagree with what she has iterated would be zionists.
Man created god before god created man and the world has been in turmoil ever since. Dots freak some people out - so they join them with lines that aren't really there.

Here is the transcript of Asma Assads CNN interview from 2009 that longpong posted as the utube - this is for people who cannot access the utube link.

quote:
THURSDAY, JANUARY 15, 2009
CNN Transcript: An interview with Asma Al Assad, Syrian First Lady.
ASMA AKHRAS AL-ASSAD, SYRIAN FIRST LADY: Just imagine your children living in Gaza. How could that reality be? Let's talk through the scenario.

You wake up in the morning, you feed -- you give your children a glass of milk. Mothers in Gaza can't do that.
But why can’t they do that?
Because, no milk gets through!

You send your children off to school knowing that they'll be safe, knowing that they're going to get a good education. Mothers in Gaza don't do that. Children don't go to school because it's not safe, because -- it's just beyond belief, to be honest.

You cook a meal. Mothers in Gaza can't cook.
Why can't they cook?

Because they don't have access to fuel!
They don't even have access to the basic food stuff (ph) that is required to get a meal together. So, children don't eat.

Mothers -- think about when you put your children to bed at night. This is something I think on a daily basis. You put your children to bed at night and you expect to see them in the morning. That's a luxury that people in Gaza just do not have.

So what would it have been like for you having -- living under those circumstances? That is something that we just cannot survive and wait for it to stop.

CAL PERRY, CNN INTERNATIONAL CORRESPONDENT: Let me ask you this, are you sad? Are you frustrated? Are you angry? I mean, you have to go to these meetings, you have to go to these dinners. Is it difficult with what's going on?

AL-ASSAD: It's been difficult to smile, and that's not just me, it's a lot of people that I'm meeting, it's a lot of people that I'm talking to.
It's the U.N. agencies on the ground, that are seeing some really horrific things.

The stories of the psychological trauma that we're not hearing on our TVs, we're not seeing on our TVs and we're not reading in our newspapers. It's something that's going to have a long-term effect on life not just in the region, but actually in the global community that we all live in, because when you see people suffering like this, it doesn't give you a sense of optimism, it doesn't give you a sense of hope. If anything, it pushes you to become more desperate, and when you are desperate, you have nothing to live for.

PERRY: Now, the Israelis say they're protecting themselves, right to self defence. They're under bombardment of missiles. That it is their children are under threat.

What's your response to that?

AL-ASSAD: Lift the embargo. Lift the embargo. It will -- lift the embargo and engage in a peace process, a real process.

As you said, talk is cheap. It's not enough to say that we want peace.
What are you going to do to achieve peace? What we're seeing on our TV is not a step in the right direction.

PERRY: Do you have any optimism for the future, in the near future?

AL-ASSAD: You have to remain optimistic. You have to remain -- you have to try and keep working towards your goals and objectives, otherwise you get sucked in with everything else that's going on. So, yes, you have to.

It's difficult, especially at times like this, that you have to keep looking in the direction that you want to go. You have to keep not just looking, you need to keep working towards it, to be honest. And you need to grab every opportunity, every platform, every exchange, every experience to work towards the agenda that is set, and that is peace.

Again, give peace a chance.

Note that this interview was from 2009 - the current violence in Syria has nothing to do with the interview but is being used by longpong to cast aspersions on the wife of President Assad - no dount she would be well aware that the rebels trying to tear Syria apart are funded by outsiders who seek to bring about regime change in Syria.

But her views on Gaza and the criminal activities of the zionist regime are still applicable to today - three years later - the Palestinians are still oppressed and under strict zionist sanctions and embargoes.
