Part one of this series will go from 1946 to 2012 although the US, UK, EU interference in Syria began long before that. Part two will cover events from 2012 onwards demonstrating the manipulation of events and biased media coverage of the US Coalition proxy war against Syria leading to a ten year war, barbaric economic sanctions and horrifying bloodshed to remove the Syrian government from power and to secure US/UK/Israeli/Turkish/Gulf State interests in the region.
Over the next few weeks, I intend writing a series of short articles detailing aspects of Syrian society and the context of the latest destabilisation campaign engineered by CIA, MI6 agencies & supported by allies in Israel, Turkey, EU, Gulf States, NATO. I hope to expose the reductionism that continues to plague the Syria narrative on both sides of the fence – and to bring to light perspectives that have previously been kept from view.
Anwar al-Sadat, holder of the titles of President, Prime Minister, ASU Chairman, Chief Commander, Supreme Military Ruler, entered into conspiracy with the Israelis, betrayed his ally Syria, condemned the Syrian army to destruction and Damascus to bombardment, allowed General Sharon’s tanks to cross without hindrance to the western bank of the Suez Canal, and actually planned a defeat of the Egyptian troops in the October War.
In an interview with Press TV on Tuesday, Vanessa Beeley stressed that Washington and Tel Aviv engineered the fuel crisis in Lebanon in a bid to demonize Hezbollah, but the resistance group, along with Tehran and Damascus, used the opportunity to demonstrate their ability to provide the much needed aid to the Lebanese nation.
The recent article in The Guardian written by suspected MI6-linked Martin Chulov is a sign of the collapsing regime change project driven by the UK and US intelligence agencies since well before 2011.
I talk to opposition MP in Turkey, Ilay Aksoy, about the 2.5 million Syrian children in Turkey many of whom are being exploited and abused on an unimaginable scale. Many are not going to school, child marriages are rife, children are being “rented” from their parents in Idlib under occupation of western-backed Al Qaeda affiliated armed groups. These children are then being repeatedly abused.
I speak to Peter Ford, former UK Ambassador to Bahrain and Syria, about the emerging geopolitical alliances in Afghanistan and how they will impact upon Syria and the region after the dust has settled on the theatre that is US withdrawal.
Israel used two civilian airliners carrying hundreds of passengers as human shields to camouflage their warplanes during the attack and delay the response of the Syrian Air Defence. Any mistake or miscalculated actions by Syria, could have led to a massacre. The Syrian Air Defence did a superb job avoiding civilian human shields and intercepting the Israeli missiles fired from warplanes violating Lebanese airspace.
We cover the recent unrest in Turkey and backlash against the growing Syrian refugee population, now believed to be an estimated five million. We talk about emerging energy sector alliances that may be surprising in who they bring together, partnering Israel with Lebanon to counter the rise of Russian influence in the region with Iran and Hezbollah and much more
Marouf is outspoken about the white supremacy and orientalism among even the supposedly independent media and does not shy away from calling it out. His voice is becoming more and more important as the instruments of power in western media and social media ratchet up their censorship of indigenous voices challenging the dominant war-mongering narratives.
