You'd be forgiven for thinking this is Italy or France.. but this is Syria. It's a stunningly beautiful country, with amazing, friendly people.. NOTHING like what you see on TV. Why is this side NEVER reported?? This isn't staged, it's just there, but no one is talking about it..
“US government officials offered “zero real evidence” that the Syrian government was behind the alleged chemical attack in Syria’s Douma, relying instead on information circulating online, Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Kentucky) said.”
An awful lot of journos have taken it upon themselves to address the horrible awful horrifying epidemic of "Assad apologists" lately. Because of all the problems in the world, the biggest is that some people are fighting another US-led regime change war with too much enthusiasm.
It's super encouraging to me that 99% of the messages I see on here are supportive and open-minded about Syria. It makes me think people aren't buying what the MSM is selling, and that's a very good thing...
.3/ It would have been more productive, to actually question the reason why more & more people are indeed turning to alternative voices for information & news, than to dish out ad hominem smears aimed at intimidating by labelling alternative voices as conspirators or apologists.
.2/ This is a dangerous manoeuvre , a witch hunt in fact, aimed not only at character assassination, but at attempting to silence those who think differently or even sway from mainstream & state narrative.
In my entire career, spanning more than three decades of professional journalism, I have never seen MSM resolve to such ugly smear campaigns & hit pieces against those questioning mainstream narratives, with a different view point, as I have seen on Syria, recently.
The @BBC, the world’s largest establishment propaganda machinery, going after independent journalists for rightfully pointing out the West’s hypocrisy & questioning its dubious motives in Syria, is the most pathetic and cringeworthy thing I‘ve seen since Hillary‘s 2017 book tour.
Here's a screenshot of Sarah Abdallah(@sahouraxo)'s statement in response to the BBC smear piece against her and @VanessaBeeley. Read it from bottom to top. Sarah & Vanessa, keep doing what you're doing. #Syria
As a journalist who has covered the #Syria conflict for 6+ years - often from inside the country - I find @sahouraxo's tweets to be far more representative of reality than @BBC ones. Lets be honest, the Beeb basically parrots terrorist & interventionist narratives on Syria.
Wow! You @sahouraxo really are touching a sensitive nerve here for the @BBCWorld to change its profession from "world service news" to a cheap version of "Le Canard enchaîné".
You couldn't get more praise for your work then this. Good job Sarah.

Syria war: The online activists pushing conspiracy theories https://bbc.in/2JSKF0t
Thanks for the heads up BBC. I'm delighted to be a follower of @sahouraxo who I consider to be an excellent source of truth (unlike your propaganda biased bs). Good advert for the truth movement, I'm quite sure she'll get many more followers as a result Cheers ;)
Such “reports” also show that the commentators, activists and journalists who don’t want to see Syria overrun by terrorism have done a hell of a job exposing the shoddy and deceptive narratives of mainstream platforms.
That BBC would write about the influence of my Twitter account and resort to ad hominem smears without addressing any of the facts and arguments presented by dissident activists on the Douma chemical attack shows how massively it has failed with its reporting on Syria as a whole.
Thank you to everyone who stood up on my behalf in the face of BBC’s smear piece against me and others. Who would have thought that they’d be so triggered by an ordinary girl who tweets about Syria? This will only encourage me to keep challenging the mainstream media narrative.
If people are going to write smear pieces on those who don’t toe the NeoCon War Party line on #Syria, then at least they should have the courage to put their name to it, especially as British licence fee payers are paying for it!
Former UK ambassador to Syria Peter Ford tells @TuckerCarlson: We have been deluded. It’s not certain by any means that it was a chemical attack. There are reports from Western journalists who were in Douma yesterday, & who spoke to doctors who said there was no chemical attack.
What does it say about the state of modern journalism that all my reporting heroes - John Pilger, Seymour Hersh and Robert Fisk – are now out in the cold, struggling to be heard anywhere but on social media?
“After speaking with eyewitnesses on the ground in Syria, even mainstream media are beginning to cast doubt on the West’s narrative of an alleged gas attack in Douma, as medics tell French, German and UK media it never happened.”
Living in Goebbels Land - So a tiny independent radio station in Ireland managed to interview Robert Fisk on the ground in Douma, but none of the British mainstream broadcast media today has him on, despite the political fallout from our Syria bombing
Rand Paul: I have yet to see evidence that Assad was responsible for the chemical attack in Syria. The only thing that would galvanize the world to attack Assad directly is a chemical attack. So what logic would there be for Assad, who’s winning the war, to use chemical weapons?
