My favorite First Lady…
Mrs. Asma al-Assad’s interview with Russia’s Channel 24 English
It’s the first time in 8 years that the First Lady of Syria has made a public interview.
Mrs. al-Assad is dedicated to her husband, President Assad, and the people of Syria.
She’s principled, strong, courageous, intelligent and highly educated, feminine, compassionate, composed, and did I say feminine?
The First Lady has worked tirelessly to make civil society, and social and economic programs a reality in Syria. She’s spearheaded numerous charities and government projects devoted to relief, support for soldiers and their families, widows and orphans, and honoring them in society.
Mrs. al-Assad, a Sunni raised in Britain, says the best way to help her husband is to self-lessly help the Syrian people.
