Sixty dead in Gaza and the end of Israeli conscience

On the night of the Palestinians’ slaughter, Zion exulted an embassy and a Eurovision. It’s difficult to think of a more atrocious moral eclipse When will the moment come in which the mass killing of Palestinians matters anything to the right? When will the moment come in which the massacre of civilians shocks at least the left-center? If 60 people […]

Israel distorts timeline of events to play victim in the dangerous escalation with Iran and Syria

Distorting the timeline of events is a longtime Israeli strategy to make its enemies look like the aggressors and pass itself off as the victim. Israel’s massive aerial attacks earlier today on Iranians and Syrians — its most extensive cross-border strikes in decades — are carrying out this propaganda strategy to perfection, and even normally skeptical news outlets are being fooled.

Dispatches From Damascus: Part Five

The area I was standing in was made safe only a few days previously by the SAA victory in Douma and East Ghouta as a whole. Under the surrender terms Jaysh al Islam agreed to release all their kidnapped civilians, a number believed to be around 5000. All the families of these disappeared turned up hoping to be reunited with them, but only 200 people emerged from the tunnels. The others had all been killed.

Syria: An Exchange Between the Communist Party of Great Britain and Media Lens

We here at BSNews have a great respect for Media Lens, particularly as our co-editor, Alison Banville, has enjoyed friendly email communication with both David Edwards and David Cromwell (with the latter for a decade)and this has proved invaluable in terms of support when the fight to expose the damage wrought by the corporate media became sometimes emotionally and psychologically […]

Corporate Media in West Doubles Down on the Douma ‘Chemical Attack’ Narrative

Moscow’s delegation to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) held a press briefing in the Hague on April 26 on the alleged 7th April chemical attacks in Douma, Eastern Ghouta. While the US, UK and France have been clamouring for justice and bombing Syria based on alleged offences committed by the Syrian government ‘against their own people’, […]

The fiasco of the bombing raid on Syria

The more time passes since the allied attack against Syria on 14 April 2018, the more the available information reveals the amplitude of the disaster. While the United States still mange to prevent leaks from their armies, those from France are irrevocable. Washington, Paris and London clearly demonstrated that they still intend to rule the world, but they also showed that they no longer have the means to do so.

The west closes its ears to Douma testimony

The first strange thing to note is that the US, UK and France boycotted the meeting, denouncing Russia for producing the witnesses and calling the event an “obscene masquerade” and “theatre”. It suggests that this trio, behaving like the proverbial three monkeys, think the testimony will disappear if they simply ignore it.

‘No Attack, No Victims, No Chemical Weapons’: Douma Witnesses Testify to OPCW in The Hague

Yesterday, both Syria and Russia presented witnesses to Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) in in The Hague, Netherlands. Multiple witness and participants in the White Helmets video testified of a ‘staged’ gas attack in the Syrian town of Douma, as well as how the online video productions supplied to western governments and media were part of the […]
