The blows became real for some outspoken critics in Beirut. Ali Haidar, who describes himself as a “humanitarian activist”, returned home to Lebanon recently on a break from work in Sudan. Weeks before, Haidar had posted a short statement on Facebook condemning the attack against three of his friends attending a vigil in Hamra in support of Syrian protesters. Haidar said his friends were beaten by the Syrian Socialist Nationalist Party (SSNP), a secular organisation that is staunchly supportive of the Syrian administration. In his post he called the SSNP a “fascist militia” and demanded they cease beating people in the streets.

This morning, al-Arabiya news reported that a statue of Hafez al-Assad (Bashir al-Assad’s father and predecessor) raising his arm in a Nazi salute has been destroyed in Deraa, as part of retaliation of Sunday’s massacre of civilians by Syrian army tanks. Deraa’s governor’s house was also torched. There was a giant sit-in taking place in the central square of the city of Jassem earlier today. Jassem lies west of Deraa in Southern Syria.
Baathist Asad – Incorporating SSNP
Radical Politics and the Syrian Social Nationalist Party :: Daniel Pipes
There is reason for this disparaging treatment. From its founding in 1932 until the present time, the party has fallen short in virtually everything it attempted. Quixotic conspiracies, foiled coup attempts, and unpopular ideological efforts won it a reputation for ludicrous impracticality, and for not being serious. It always remained numerically very small and never got even close to power. In the SSNP record, frustration far outweighs achievement.
But the SSNP’s failures should not obscure the fact that the party has had profound political importance in the twentieth-century history of Lebanon and Syria, the two states where it has been most active. It provided the minorities, especially the Greek Orthodox Christians, with a vehicle for political action. As the first party fully to embrace extreme ideals of the inter-war period, the SSNP incubated virtually every radical group on those two countries; it had, in particular, great impact on the Ba’th Party. Finally – and this may mark the apogee of its power-the government of Hafez al-Asad has allied with the SSNP and incorporated some of its ideas into Syrian state policy.

Since then, conditions have changed, and fascism outside Europe has become a possibility and, in some cases, a reality. The Iraqi and the Syrian regimes have pronounced fascist features, even though they are secular rather than clerical in inspiration, and are ruled by politically ambitious officers rather than religious dignitaries… Both the Iraqi and the Syrian leadership belongs to the Ba’th Party, an elitist, pan-Arabist group that arose in the 1930s partly as a result of the rise of fascism in Europe.

The Nazi Fascist supremacist SSNP
The SSNP, founded by Antun Saada in 1932 and modeled after the Nazi and Fascist parties of Germany and Italy, is the most vicious and sinister of all Lebanon’s parties, more so even than Hezbollah. Last week seven members were arrested by Lebanese police and several truckloads of weapons and explosives were captured. Ali Qanso, the party leader, defensively said “we are a resistance force, and we use different methods of resisting, among which is using explosives.” If the Syrians use Lebanese proxies to carry out bombings and assassinations, the SSNP are most likely the culprits.
(Johns Hopkins Professor Fouad Ajami, who grew up as a Shia in South Lebanon, wrote about Saada and the SSNP at length in his masterful Dream Palace of the Arabs.)

As soon as Hitler rose to power, parties that imitated National Socialism were founded in Arab countries, like the Social-Nationalist Party in Syria led by Anton Sa’ada, who openly and enthusiastically copied the Nazis. Sa’ada, who styled himself as the Fuhrer of the Syrian nation, stated in the party platform that the Syrians were the superior race by their very nature. Hitler
was “Islamicized” and known by his new name Abu Ali (in Egypt, for some
reason, it was Muhammed Haidar). Egyptian followers even “found” the house in
which Hitler’s mother wasborn in Tanta, Egypt and the place became a pilgrimage site…

Anton Saada, referred to as the Fuhrer of the Syrian Nation by his followers, was head of the “Hisb-el-qaumi-el-suri,” the Social Nationalist Party (PPS) of Syria established in Damascus. A Lebanese branch of the PPS would later give rise to various fascist style Muslim militias and organizations, which would clash in the 1975 Lebanon Civil War as Lebanon disintegrated into warring Muslim and Christian Phalangist militias which also maintained fascist bona fides.
A PPS branch, directed from Syria, had been previously implicated in the assassination of the Christian Lebanese President Pierre Gamayel in 1958. The PPS of Anton Saada proclaimed in its party platform “Syrians were the superior race by their very nature.”

Party rituals imitated the Fascists in many details, from the Hitler-like salute and the anthem set to “Deutschland, Deutschland iiber alles,” to the party symbol, a curved swastika called the red hurricane [zawba'a).

Beirut Gossip (Quotes excerpted from miscellaneous press reports on the demonstrations in Downtown Beirut): - Updated Dec. 24, 2006
SEIZURE OF WEAPONS IN LEBANON: [Note from the editor: In Lebanon, you can invoke the right to owning bomb-making materials and missiles by simply saying "We are a Resistance". In the US, the claim is based on a constitutional "Right to Bear Arms"]. To wit: Lebanese security forces arrested members of the Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP) on Thursday after confiscating large quantities of explosives, detonators and timers [i.e. bomb-making equipment] during raids on the members’ homes in North Lebanon, as far away as one can be in Lebanon from any lines of confrontation with the “Zionist enemy”. Party leader Ali Qanso responded hours after the raids on his home, saying “…The party did indeed own the stash of weapons…that it had kept ‘just in case’…We are not a militia and we are not a party of murderers. We are a resistance force…” Qanso’s SSNP is allied with Hassan Nasrallah’s Hizbullah and Michel Aoun’s Free Patriotic Movement that have been staging an open-ended demonstration to force the government of Prime Minister Fouad Siniora to resign. Qanso added, “The Social Nationalists’ patience has limits…We are a resistance force, and we use different methods of resisting, among which is using explosives.” The SSNP, created in 1932 along the models of the German Nazi Party and the Italian and Spanish Fascist parties of that era, is a Fascist Syrian nationalist party advocating a “Greater Syria” encompassing Lebanon, Jordan, Palestine, Iraq, Kuwait and Cyprus, and proclaiming the racial supremacy of the Northern Arabs (“the Syrians”) over the Southern Arabs of the peninsula. (All quotes are from the Daily Star, December 22, 2006).
Troubling Partnerships: Extremists Left and Right :: Hudson New York Oct 9, 2009 – The SSNP is backed both by Syria and the Lebanese terrorist group Hezbollah. It was, moreover, molded directly on the European fascist movements of the 1930s, and still retains a swastika (called the “red hurricane”) as its flag, uniforms for its “martyrs,” and an anthem sung to the tune Deutschland, Uber Alles.
