MIT rocket scientist Theodore Postol has accused the OPCW leadership of overseeing “compromised reporting” and ignoring evidence that challenged claims that the Syrian government carried out a chemical attack in Douma.
In April 2017 in Damascus, BSNews co-ed Alison Banville filmed the wall (above), commemorating the Syrian journalists killed while reporting on the conflict. Mike Raddie (co-editor) was being interviewed on Syrian national television that day and we both took the time to pay our respects to these brave people who exemplify what real journalism should be and who paid the […]
Syrians who fled the crimes of ISIS and other terrorist groups which invaded their towns in Homs eastern countryside and sought refuge at the US-controlled Rukban camp are living indescribable suffering like what they fled from. Dozens of families have managed to pay their way out of the Nazi-style concentration camp in the far southeast of the Syrian desert at the borders […]
In the western media narrative, SAA-targeted underground bunkers and terrorist run prisons become ‘hospitals’. We should not allow ourselves to be collectively hypnotised into believing the media hype that would portray armed-group murderers as heroes, and the Syrian people and government struggling to expel them from the country as villains. IDLIB PROVINCE, SYRIA (Report) — In recently liberated Qalaat Al Madiq […]
Recent storylines from the Western press on the “Idlib” narrative, particularly the extraordinary spate of “on-the-ground” reports from Sky News reporter Alex Crawford, have failed to paint an accurate picture of the reality faced by Syrian civilians. Brett McGurk – the U.S. government’s Special Presidential Envoy for the Global Coalition to Counter ISIL — described Idlib as “the largest Al Qaeda safe […]
Latest attempt to prosecute President Assad at ICC is further criminalisation of “international justice”
In March 2019 two law firms filed cases at the ICC against Syria’s President Bashar Al Assad and unnamed members of the Syrian government. Toby Cadman of Guernica Chambers and Rodney Dixon of Temple Garden Chambers were the protagonists in this latest attempt to criminalise the Syrian President and government. These law firms are basing their case upon the testimony […]
If you want to understand what is really happening in the world today, a mid-ranking official named Ian Henderson is vastly more important to you than Theresa May. You will not, however, find anything about Henderson in the vast majority of corporate and state media outlets.
The liberation of Idlib, and also Hama, Latakia and Aleppo countrysides, will mean not only an end to terrorists’ incessant bombing of civilians, but also an end to the savage rule of terrorists – rule which in every prior instance around Syria has meant imprisonment, torture, and public executions of civilians by sword or point-blank assassination, starvation, rape of women, and even organ theft.
George Monbiot is an influential journalist, and his words on Syria over the past seven years will have carried weight in shaping public opinion. Some critical readers, however, have been concerned.
Background: Our co-ed Alison Banville wrote a piece recently on the corporate media disappearing the children murdered in Syria last week by NATO backed Jihadists. Included was an admonition of Media Lens for consistently refusing to acknowledge Vanessa Beeley’s outstanding investigative work on the ground in Syria. In response, the Davids Edwards and Cromwell posted a reply to Alison on […]
It is bad enough that our governments and our expert institutions deceive and lie to us. But it is even worse that we have a corporate media addicted – at the most charitable interpretation – to its own incompetence. The evidence demonstrating that grows stronger by the day.
I have just heard some news which is almost too heartbreaking to put into words. This morning, a little boy, Marcel Shadi Nemeh, died of his wounds in hospital after sustaining them last Sunday in an attack by Nusra Front terrorists on his home in Skeilbiyyeh, Syria. In that same attack, his brother Bashar was killed, along with three other children who were innocently playing in a monastery courtyard and some in their own homes.
