Syrië is altijd al een doorn in het oog van Israël en imperialisten vazallen geweest.
De seculier, filosoof en politicus Antoun Saadeh, oprichter van the Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP) in 1932, gedood door zio nazis in 1949 had al een vooruitziende blik.
In dit artikel wordt tot in details weergegeven hoe de imperialisten het seculiere, pluriforme, verdraagzame Syrië steeds geprobeerd hebben voor eigen gewin te veranderen in een sektarische staat.
How Imperialism Crushed Syrian Secularism With Sectarianism
Politician Antoun Saadeh was a champion of Syrian secularization, advocating the separation of religion and politics to create greater national unity. But his secular society would be demolished by Western powers that sought to divide and conquer the country.
The philosopher and politician Antoun Saadeh was a true visionary. He died in 1949; but before he perished, he foretold of the sorts of conflicts and wars that we are seeing today in Syria and the Middle East. He is perhaps best known for founding the Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP) in 1932, which would result in his arrest three years later.
His 1935 arrest was the first of several that would see him locked up in intermittent periods between that year and 1937. But his imprisonment did not stop him from expanding on the ideology he established with the SSNP, as he would write three books (“The Rise of Nations,” “Principles Explained” and “The Rise of the Syrian Nation”) while in prison. His manuscript for the third book was taken by French authorities and now sits under lock and key in the Louvre, much like Saadeh himself when he was jailed.
One of the cornerstones of his ideology was secularization. He advocated the complete separation of religion and politics as a fundamental condition for real national unity. He valued diversity, saying “Every nation is made up of diverse racial groups, and none of them is the product of one race or one specific tribe.”
But in the years since his death, his birthplace of Lebanon has become a highly sectarian nation and society. In the political scene, the nation is broken into pieces by religion and sect. The President must be Maronite Catholic, while the Prime Minister must be Sunni Muslim and the Speaker of the Parliament must be Druze. Religion and sect are not chosen through one’s own free will, but are imposed at birth.
Foreign powers, hoping to create chaos in the Middle East, have long used the tactic of igniting sectarian strife in the countries they wish to target, pitting some of the population against others through the strategy of “divide and conquer.” The U.S. and NATO have used this extensively in Iraq, Syria and Lebanon.
The SSNP’s official logo, the “Zawba’a,” is a symbol derived from Mesopotamian art. The red whirlwind symbol is said to symbolize the blood that was shed by the party’s martyrs throughout its history, while the black circle symbolizes the dark ages of sectarianism and colonial oppression.
In keeping with his ideology, Saadeh opposed the colonization that broke up greater Syria. His ideology refers to a “Natural Syria,” including the Fertile Crescent, that comprises a Syrian homeland that includes the Taurus and Zagros mountains, extending to the Suez Canal and the Red Sea, across the Sinai and Gulf of Aqaba and down to the Mediterranean Sea, including the island of Cyprus, down to the Arabian Desert and Persian Gulf.
Saadeh traced Syrian history back to the ancient Phoenicians, Canaanites, Assyrians and Babylonians, believing that the people of Syria transcended religious distinctions. To him geography was the defining characteristic of the nation – not religion or ethnicity. He felt that Syria was historically, culturally and geographically distinct from the rest of the Arab world.
Saadeh witnessed the end of World War I in 1918, which saw the violent partitioning of Syria into smaller states, with part of Syrian territory given to the new Turkish government. Lebanon was cut out of Syria and declared an independent state in 1920. Syria then endured a brutal and repressive military occupation by France from 1920 to 1946.
My bounty is as boundless as the sea,
My love as deep; The more I give to thee
Even while I’m aware that my earthly life is very finite.
