It seems that Sadat predicted what is happening in Syria after all !!!

This short clip for Egypt’s President Sadat in 1980 went viral not only in Egypt but also in the Arab world recently.
That clip was taken from a long speech for the late President on 5th October 1980 at the National Democratic Party “NDP” in Cairo.
Those few seconds focused on what was happening in Syria during the clashes between the Muslim Brotherhood and Hafez El-Assad Baath regime in what is known as The siege of Aleppo. Thousands were killed and arrested in that fight. If you think that Syria was enjoying stability and peacefulness in the 20th century then you have to think again about how El-Assad and his son reached to that fake stability based on fear.
Anyhow here is what Sadat said about El-Assad in his speech where he slammed his opponents as usual.
Sadat slams El-Assad and speaks about Soviet Military support .. from more than 30 years
There is civil war in Syria. Hafez El-Assad wants to keep his head along the heads of his brother “Refaat El-Assad” and his Alawite sect and so he asks for the help of the Soviets in Syria and signing a common defense treaty with them against 98% of the Syrians … to protect his head. 
Relations with Syria went from bad to worse after Camp David treaty with Hafiz El-Assad and Saddam Hussein leading the boycott Egypt movement in the Arab world.
It is well known that when Sadat was assassinated, Hafiz El-Assad and his regime celebrated it.
Regardless of what happened in 1980s in Syria, it seems that Anwar Sadat was predicting the future of Syria after three decades amazingly describing what happened and is happening right now in Syria.

It is like a deja vu or history repeating but on a bigger scale.
Here is a quick explanation from AJ+ about what is happening in Syria.

What the Heck Is Russia Doing in Syria?

I am afraid with the more public military intervention of Russia and Iran in Syria, the Alawites and Shiites will pay a bigger and hard price.
Yes eventually the remaining factions in the Syrian conflicts will sit on negotiations table but after more blood I am blood. There will be no use for talks as long as Bashar Al-Assad and ISIS exist in Syria. Needless to say, both of them need each other.
Now I found this video while watching comic video mocking El-Sisi’s position from what is happening in Syria in Egyptian popular comedy Facebook page "Asa7be Sarcasm society"  .

Officially, El-Sisi's administration supports the Russian strikes in Syria. Needless to say that strange love triangle between El-Assad-Sisi-King Salman of Saudi Arabia , nobody knows how it will end. 


  1. Syria is a land made up of several sects that existed next to each other but never co-existed as countrymen. Of the Syrian population, 74% are Sunnis (including Sufis),13% are Shias, Kurds(including 18.0% Alawites from which about 2% are called Mershdis , 3% Twelvers , or 1% Ismailis , 3% are Druze, while the remaining 10% were Christians. Therefore Syria, just like Lebanon is not a country in the true sense but a creation of French colonialists who put these sects under one region and called them a country! True peace will come if Syria is separated or forms a federation.

  2. I loved President Sadat, and read Mrs Sadat's book she wrote, "A Woman in Egypt", years ago before I visited or rather on the plane going there. A great book about a great man. We once visited just after the 2011 Revolution Alexandria Library and visited a nice museum they had there in the library dedicated to Sadat. It included his Uniform still with the blood stains, his desk, his pipes, etc. Sad but interesting to see if its still there in the Library in the rear rooms or the museum section.

    1. I remember this exhibition :)
      By the way he got a similar exhibition in the Pharaonic village in Giza

  3. I respected President Sadat, more then all the others put together.
