If the last nail had not yet been pounded into the West’s “The Syrian government is a sectarian dictatorship” line, the recent Syrian Parliamentary elections have gone to great lengths to ensure that very few spikes are needed to finally seal the box shut.

Despite claims by Western governments and corporate media outlets that the Syrian government is led by Assad’s “Alawite clan” and that both minorities and majorities are excluded and persecuted, the truth is that Syria and its government are pluralistic and multifaceted. This has been widely known amongst genuine researchers and those not wedded to the NATO imperialist agenda for some time. Still, such knowledge has been obfuscated and largely hidden by a mass media machine intent on promoting inaccurate views of Syrian society for the purposes of justifying Western intervention under the guise of “Responsibility to Protect.”

Nevertheless, if the Syrian government was truly led by a sectarian Alawite, and Alawites ruled the country in an authoritarian manner, then surely the sectarian Alawite’s cabinet and Syria’s Parliament would be made up of Alawites, right? Surely, the majority would be excluded from positions of power.

That is indeed the presentation that the Western corporate media would have its audience believe. However, the recent Syrian Parliamentary elections have crushed those claims mightily whenever one takes the time to look at the religious affiliations of the members of the Parliament who won positions in the government during this last round of voting. Indeed, the results of the Syrian elections do not show a religious minority controlling the government but a rather predictable and accurate sampling of the geographic areas taking part in the voting process. In other words, the elections yielded results that are an accurate representation of Syrian diversity with the majority religion taking the majority of votes in the given districts. Still, the majority did not always win out, as is evidenced by the fact that, even in Sunni-dominated areas, Christians and Shi’ites were able to win seats as well.

Ziad Fadel of Syrian Perspective provides a list of Syrian politicians who were victorious in the recent elections, along with their religious affiliations. One need only take a cursory look at the results to see that, if the Syrian government is an Alawite dictatorship, it is the most poorly constructed religious dictatorship in history. Either that, or the Western press is wholeheartedly lying. Personally, any observer would be well advised to put his money on the latter.

Below is the list of victorious Syrian politicians as provided by Syrian Perspective.
