George gives an excellent introduction on the nature of systematic, paid-for, organized, deliberate, war propaganda on Syria, to deceive people and whitewash the nature of the heinous, criminal, actions of the terrorists dubbed by the west as “rebels” who have beheaded children, among other crimes.
He kindly points out that I and others who have been telling the truth on Syria are being vindicated on a daily basis.
During the interview, I noted the media portrayal of what is happening in Syria (incessant demonization of Syria and Russia), and that Syria has a legal right to fight terrorism, and an obligation to the Syrian people to do so. CONTINUE READING
Recently, I spoke with Michael Welch of Global Research News Hour, for his episode, “Truth and Lies of the Syrian Conflict”.
Michael Welch’s introduction includes:
“The Syrian crisis is once again making headlines. In particular, humanitarian agencies like UNICEF, AVAAZ, Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International are blaming Syrian and Russian airstrikes for civilian deaths in East Ghoutta while completely ignoring the carnage meted out by rebel factions in the area.
While such respected agencies, as well as supposedly independent media outlets like Democracy Now may fall short of actually endorsing war, the distorted coverage and one-sided humanitarian narratives they relay play into the hands of the military interventionists.
This week’s installment of the Global Research News Hour returns its gaze to Syria and attempts to provide a fuller picture of what’s happening on the ground and why.
First up is Eva Bartlett. She has visited Syria frequently over the last several years, interviewing numerous people in all parts of Syria. She can attest to the important stories that are being deliberately weeded out of the corporate press. In her conversation with the Global Research News Hour (transcribed below) she details missing reporting about terrorist activities in the country. She also corrects the record on the meme of her being on Russia’s payroll, while disclosing areas where the objectivity of UN and other humanitarian agencies are compromised. CONTINUE READING
People around the world are rightfully outraged by Donald Trump’s recent effective handing over of Jerusalem to Israel.
Behind the scenes, out of sight, an outrageous and illegal practice continues, the alleged“only democracy in the Middle East” on a near-daily basis abducts Palestinian men, women, and children under false pretexts (or no charges at all), using sham legal proceedings to enforce prolonged, illegal, detentions.
According to October 2017 statistics by the Palestinian prisoner support group Addameer, Israel holds 6,198 Palestinians in prison (including 280 children and 58 women).
“People need to listen to Israeli Hebrew-speaking media and read Haaretz. Listen to what most Israeli officials and politicians are saying. They are openly talking abut genocide, killing all Arabs, and even raping Palestinian women systematically…
The current state of Israel is not the real Israel and has nothing to do with the Torah or Judaism and most the current Israelis are not the descendants of the Israelites of the past — let alone Semites —- or even practicing Judaism.
There is also major media censorship about the tens of thousands of practicing Jews that have held marches in opposition to Israel and who refuse to recognize this “Israel” as a Jewish State. Why is this not being reported? Because it would make people question the claims of this “Israel” and the religious criteria it presents for its justification. CONTINUE READING
Gaza has been locked down at least since 2007 (and incrementally for decades), bombed and starved, its infrastructure decimated time and again, not allowed to re-build, its power plant bombed, its sewage and sanitation and water lines destroyed time and again, denied replacement parts for said destruction… and now, just as the rest of the world is again occupied with holidays, the Zionists are bombing Gaza anew.Gaza has no tanks, no attack helicopters, no warplanes, no warships, no nuclear arms (nor electricity). Israel does.

Throughout the so-called “Operation Pillar of Cloud” that began on November 14th 2012 and lasted until November 21st 2012, pro-Israel apologists launched another wave of hatred in the cyberspace.
Here are screenshots of some of what I received on my personal Twitter account, timed and dated. I tried to link the screenshots to their users but it seems to me that those apologists either disappeared from Twitter or deleted their posts.
When Israeli bombs struck the Abu Khadra complex for civil administration, they also gutted the sixth floor of the Abu Shabaan complex, located ten metres across the road. According to the Palestinian Centre for Human Rights (PCHR), eight Israeli warplane-fired bombs levelled roughly half of the government compound in eastern Gaza City in the early hours of Nov. 21.
The bombings also took a considerable toll on the homes and businesses nearby, including the Gaza bureau of Al Jazeera.
Over 50 percent of the private medical centre in the Abu Shabaan building was destroyed, says Dr. Naim Shariff (42), owner of the Benoon In Vitro Fertilisation clinic.
Two weeks after the bombing tore apart the sixth floor and ravaged the fifth floor, Shariff has re-paned the windows, ordered new specialised machinery, and re-opened for clients.
“The problem with replacing my machines and equipment is that most of it doesn’t exist in Gaza. It takes months to arrive and costs more money than it would elsewhere,” he says.
“What else can I do but start again? There’s no insurance here for war damages.” CONTINUE READING
