Why? Because he said this:
"Our enemies work every day in an organized and public fashion to hurt Syria," Assad said. "Our enemies' aim was to divide Syria as a country and force an Israeli agenda onto it, and they will continue to try and try again."

With gthese words Assas earned the adoration from the usual "human rights" suspects! Even though Bashir Assad's own father, former President Assad of Syria & a fan of British sit com "Dads Army" used to refer to his son as "stupid boy!" Western anti-Israel activists look to Bashir as a hero in the "anti-zionist" cause!
Easy for them to beleive the bloodshed in Syria is all the work of dastardly Zionists, just as they had previously branded the ethnic Africans in Darfur being murdered by the Arabist Sudanese regime not as victims of racism but as "Zionist pawns"
