Bashar-Al-Assad PPT

  1. 1. Bashar al-Assad • Bashar Hafez al-Assad; born 11 September 1965 is the President of Syria, General Secretary of the Ba'ath Party and Regional Secretary of the party's branch in Syria. He has served as President since 2000, when he succeeded his father, Hafez al- Assad, who led Syria for 30 years until his death. • He is a dictator, which is why the west support those who want him to step down. As a dictator, he is doing everything in his power to STAY in power, including killing innocent people. That's what dictators do, and that makes him a baddie. Trouble is, many if not most of the people who want him to go are just as bad, and will bring in an Islamic fundamentalist government. It's a lose-lose situation for the west. By: Rahul Jose
  2. 2. Interesting Timelines • August 18, 2011 - Both the United States and the European Union call for al-Assad to step down. U.S. authorities also impose new economic sanctions against Damascus, freezing Syrian government assets in the United States, barring Americans from making new investments in Syria and prohibiting any U.S. transactions relating to Syrian petroleum products, among other things. • November 14, 2011 - Jordan's King Abdullah calls on Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to resign. • May 19, 2011 - Al-Assad is harshly criticized in a speech by U.S. President Barack Obama, that Syrians have displayed "courage in demanding a transition to democracy [but Assad's regime] has chosen the path of murder and the mass arrests of its citizens...President Assad now has a choice: He can lead that transition, or get out of the way."
