Only last night here in the UK this co-editor was watching in anguish another manufactured report on the Syrian Arab Army’s ‘crimes’ in Idlib, complete with, of course, footage supplied by the terrorist White Helmets. The reporter for ITV’s News At Ten, Geraint Vincent, colluding in blatant propaganda that will add to the suffering of the Syrian people, is to […]
Russian journalist Aleksandr Kharchenko gives a compelling and moving account of his work at the front lines in the Syrian Arab Army’s fight against NATO and Gulf state backed terrorism: Syria is a nice Middle Eastern country.

I am a survivor of rape, gang rape and the abusive police process I was subjected to when I reported it and I am fed up with watching sexual violence being used as a cover for political attacks on Julian Assange, ais colleagues and his supporters.
Martyrs Day. #Syria I recently posted an interview I did with a retired schoolteacher in Mesyaf – Ali Habib. Ali called out, not only the governments in the West, but the people.

I was diagnosed with breast cancer April 2013 in Gaza, after days spent wrestling with over exuberant porters, Egyptian Intelligence and army at the Rafah border, this was not the outcome I expected.
