Syrian First Lady says she was offered a deal to flee Syria

“I’ve been here since the beginning and I never thought of being anywhere else at all”


MIDDLE EAST MONITOR – The wife of Syria’s President Bashar Al-Assad said in an interview her husband’s foes had offered her the chance to flee Syria in order to try to shake confidence in him, but that she had not left the country since the war erupted.

Speaking in English to Russia’s state-backed Rossiya 24 channel, Asma Al-Assad, a London-born former investment banker, did not say who made the offers.

But she said the people trying to get her to flee had not been Syrian and that their offers were “stupid”.

“I’ve been here since the beginning and I never thought of being anywhere else at all,” the 41-year-old mother of three told Rossiya 24 in an interview broadcast today.

“Yes I was offered the opportunity to leave Syria or rather to run from Syria. These offers included guarantees of safety and protection for my children and even financial security. It doesn’t take a genius to know what these people were really after. It was a deliberate attempt to shatter people’s confidence in their president.

    The problem with the mafia who control this country is that they do not care who is going to be there in the W.H. as long as they do whatever the Criminal Mafia tells them to do which will always be against the American people and in favor of Greater Israel.
