8 Ways Bashar Al-Assad Is The Reincarnation Of Hitler

As more images of Assad’s war crimes are released, we cannot help but find them eerily similar to images of Hitler’s crimes during the Holocaust. As a result, we have decided that Bashar al- Assad is the 21st century reincarnation of Adolf Hitler.

1. Let’s start with their uncanny physical similarities

Dark hair, blue eyes, distinguished mustache, that “I’m going to kill your family and enjoy it” stare, and let’s not forget the hand raise.

2. Just like Hitler, Assad annihilates anyone who opposes him

Anyone who dares oppose Assad and his regime automatically become terrorists and targets for Assad’s army…including young children like 13 y.o. Hamza al Khateeb. Hamza was arrested during a rally in April 2011, detained for a month, then returned to his family as a mutilated corpse with welts, cigarette burns and wounds from bullets fired to injure, not to kill. His kneecaps were smashed, neck broken, his jaw shattered and genitals cut off.

3. Assad’s Mukhabarat and Shabiha are equivalent to Hitler’s Schutzstaffel (SS)

And they are known to carry out massacres in Syria…like the Houla Massacre (pictured above) which claimed the lives of 108 village residents, according to the United Nations, including 49 children and 34 women, most of them murdered with hatchets, knives and guns.

*Notice how the children wet their pants from fear as they were being slain. It is more apparent in other photos of the massacre, but those were too graphic to post*

4. Fun for Assad is having his soldiers belittle, humiliate, and degrade civilians

In this image, Assad’s soldiers beat and jump on the backs of arrested Syrian civilians while yelling, “Do you want freedom?! Is this the freedom you want!?”

**Unfortunately this is just one of many many instances, each with video proof**

5. Both Hitler and Assad gassed their victims

On August 21, 2013, Bashar al-Assad carried out a chemical weapons attack in Ghouta, Syria, killing (suffocating) over 1,700 civilians in just a few hours. He used Sarin gas, a nerve agent classified as a weapons of mass destruction.

**This was not the first or last time chemical weapons has been used against Syrian civilians since the start of the revolution in 2011**

6. They also starved their victims

Starvation has become Assad’s favorite weapon of war recently. He usually just used to starve his prisoners and detainees, but he figured out a way to starve Syrian people outside of prison….which brings us to the next point…

**These are images of people who have died of starvation and malnutrition due to a siege on the city of Yarmouk, Syria**

7. Assad has besieged many cities and towns in Syria, closing the citizens inside off to the world….similar to a WW2 era ghetto

What does it mean for Assad to besiege a city? No food, medicine, water, humanitarian aid, or aid workers can get in…and no one can get out. A full blockade is placed around the city, resulting in starvation, disease, malnutrition, and ultimately death of the civilians living in those towns.

**Homs, a city in Syria, has been under siege for over 600 days**

8. Mass, systematic torture and execution of prisoners? Don’t worry Hitler, Assad has got that covered!

55,000 images of 11,000 tortured and executed prisoners in regime prisons and torture centers had been recently released and examined by forensics experts. Over 285,000 people (including women and children) are currently detained by the Assad regime, and undoubtedly being tortured.

In 2012, Amnesty International released a report defining over 40 torture methods used in Syrian detention centers, along with testimonies of survivors who endured the brutality.

As the popular Syrian Revolution rally slogan goes, “Assad and Hitler are the same, only difference is the name”

Here are some more ways Assad is the reincarnation of Hitler:

-No respect for human life

-Good brainwashing skills

-Abuses, tortures and executes mentally and/or physically handicapped persons

-Will do anything to stay in power

-Is a criminal of war

*We want to thank Adolf Hitler for killing himself and look forward to the day his reincarnation, Bashar al-Assad, does the same*
