Ambassador's wives in YouTube attack on the First Lady of Syria


The wives of two ambassadors to the United Nations have created a YouTube video which personally attacks and seeks to humiliate the wife of the President of Syrial, Asma Assad.   Who are these three women involved and why are women attacking women?   It sounds like a "cat-fight', which is usually based on petty jealousies and insecurities of the attackers.   I have noticed this attack is also based on propaganda and ignorance by the two female attackers.

Asma Assad

Huberta von Voss Wittig is the wife of the German ambassador to the United Nations,   Dr. Peter Wittig.   Huberta is identified as a journalist and writer by internet sources.   She may have written a book, "Portraits of Hope: Armenians in the Contemporay World".   If she had many Armenian friends who live inside Syria, they would have already told her that they do not share her misinformed and ignorant views of the violence inside Syria.   I know many Armenians living inside Syria and they are all supportive of the actions of the President of Syria, Dr. Bashar Al Asad.   In fact, Kasab, which is a wholly Armenian village, located on the Syrian-Turkish border, has been a victim of violence by armed terrorist groups, who are fighting the Syrian Arab Army.  


However, Huberta, sitting safe in her New York City home, seems to think herself well informed on the violence which is inside Syria.   I wonder how many times Huberta has traveled to Syria, how many friends she has here to keep her informed, and if she has ever been attacked by an armed terrorist?   I have lived in Syria for twenty years, all my friends are scattered around Syria in various locations, and I have been attacked by armed terrorists in Syria.


Huberta should know that the German Navy, without German parliament mandate, had sent a spy ship to sit off the coast of Syria, with the express purpose of giving the terrorists inside Syria satellite information on troop movements of the Syrian Arab Army, in and around Homs.   Huberta's husband's employer is involved in aiding the terrorists inside Syria. Huberta is pleading for the Syrian first lady to pressure her husband to stop attacking terrorists in Homs.   Huberta is pleading for the Syrian first lady to assist the west in regime change.   When my home was being attacked during the summer of 2011 by armed terrorists, it was only the Syrian Arab Army and the local police who came to fight for my life and my family's protection.   Of the many thousands who have died in Syrian since March 2011 the majority have been soldiers, police and national security officers.   Men in uniform: doing their national duty, to save and protect innocent civilians from armed terrorists.


Sheila, Lady Lyall Grant, is the wife of Sir Mark Lyall Grant, the British ambassador to the United Nations.   I wonder if she is wearing old clothes.   Maybe Lady Lyall Grant likes to save her husband money and run around in tattered jeans she buys from a New York City second-hand shop.   She certainly seems incensed that the first lady of Syria has been noticed as having good taste in clothes and represents the Syrian fashion industry well.   Maybe Sheila would like to start a worldwide campaign to prevent first ladies from dressing well.   Maybe she should start in London, not Syria.


Here is a list of some of the many positive things which Asma Al Asad, the first lady of Syria, has done to help Syria in general and Syrian women in particular.   For example:

  1. Changing the national school uniforms worn from the militant army fatigues to royal blue, grey and pink fabrics.
  2. Developing a micro-finance program for women in villages, who need help starting their own income producing project.
  3. Changing the law which effect women in divorce: that they can keep custody of their young children much longer than the previous law stated.
  4. Developing charitable organizations focused on youth and learning.
