Last Wednesday, gunmen in Damascus perpetrated an attack on the Syrian TV station al-Ikhbariya (al-Ekhbariya). Thereby, three journalists and four technicians were killed, the Syrian TV station, the office, was destroyed.

The assassination of the Syrian journalists and the attack on the Syrian TV channel has triggered outrage in Syria. But as mentioned here, the reaction (no reaction) of international media was not only a shame, but also a unique sign for the one-sided values in the West. Syrian journalists and the government condemned the attack quite rightly. But as mentioned, almost nothing was heard, nothing really reported in the NATO countries about the horrible attack on journalists in Syria.

While one still can remember the outcries in the world as foreign journalists became the victims of the situation, Western media not even took the time to mention the names of the murdered journalists, who were killed by the Western-backed radicals and religious fanatics.

The Middle East expert Günter Meyer draws a reality of the conflict in Syria which differs from the Western media reports. He believes neither in a breakthrough in Geneva or a Turkish intervention in Syria.

This interview was published by the Swiss newspaper bernerzeitung.ch and as stated, the statements by the expert in affairs of the Middle East, Mr. Günter Meyer, truly differ from the coverage of the situation in Syria by Western media.

But to be honest, that is no real surprise, because some people, after all, rather stick with the truth than with the propaganda and American aims.

The statements of Mr. Meyer are reminiscent of the information from the German journalist Mr. Jürgen Todenhöfer and some can also take it as given that the known Middle East expert, Peter Scholl-Latour, also shares this stance, which differs to the propaganda and one-sided reports in Western media.

The Turkish newspaper Hurriyet Daily News wrote on 26 June:

“There are currently two Russian ships and a Russian frigate was in Latakia harbor,” Masum Turker, leader of the Democratic Left Party (DSP) said today in an interview with TV8. “One of them, Admiral Chabanenko, has the technology to detect th e slightest action in the air.”

Masum Türker said that the Russian warship Admiral Chabanenko (Udaloy class destroyer) hit the Turkish jet that went down on June 22nd.

Yesterday, we have reported about the murder of the Syrian journalists and the parallels to the war of NATO in Libya. How are now the reactions of the “international community journalists”, when people, real colleagues, were blown in a Syrian television station to pieces?

The reactions of those journalists, who report so outraged, that the Syrian President Bashar al-Assad would allegedly “bombarded his own people”?

Europe

The EU is silent about the dead journalists and about the attack on the media. The EU foreign ministers have announced, by your leave, this moronic sentence:

“As long as the violence continues, the EU will continue to impose sanctions against the regime”, said the EU foreign policy-representative Catherine Ashton.

Germany

The newspapers are silent. The “human rights activists” stay silent. The German Foreign Minister is silent.

Backstabbers

The state media stay silent, also the yellow press, and the press of the big business say nothing. Also the association of writers, the German Association of Journalists, stays silent and says nothing. However, this association had demanded the following in a letter in February 2011 from the Arab States:

“Prevent attacks – no matter if it is committed by a party or group – against correspondents. The government of your country is responsible for the safety of the journalists. Fulfill this responsibility!”

The DJV letter was sent to the ambassadors of Bahrain, Egypt, Libya, Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Jordan, Yemen, Kuwait, and Oman.

(Information: The German Journalists Association (DJV) – Union of Journalists is the largest organization of journalists in Europe, with headquarters in Berlin. It has about 38,000 members. National chairman since 2003 is the journalist Michael Konken, Ulrike Kaiser is the deputy national chairman since 2007. Federal Executive is the lawyer Kajo Dohring. From 1989 to 1998, Hermann Meyn was chairman of this German Journalists Association (DJV). The German Journalists Association (DJV) is a member of the International Federation of Journalists (IFJ).)

One gets the impression that freedom and human rights only applies to the journalists from the West and not for the Arabic journalists, which are killed by the West or its hangers-on.

Nevertheless, they are annoyed, quite rightly, by the call for murder by Islamists (Salafists) against German journalists. But why the murdered Syrian counterparts are not worth a word, let alone protest, is hard to understand, this might be only explained with political adaptation.

Syria

Syrian journalists and the government are outraged. The Syrian journalists of Al-Ikhbariya said that this massacre of their colleagues will not keep them away from reporting of the truth about the events within Syria.

Syrian Information Minister al-Zoubi:

The massacre on journalists and against a free TV channel is a direct application of the decision of the Council of the Arab League, in order to stop the programs of the Syrian TV by force.

The last sanctions against Syria by the EU from Tuesday were immediately implemented at the expense of journalists and civilians.

The EU/UN Security Council, the UN observers, the UN Secretary-General of the UN Human Rights Council, the Secretary General of the Arab League, and the foreign minister, are partners in this crime and they should take responsibility.

The director of the al-Ikhbariya (al-Ekhbariya) TV channel, Imad Sarah said that the massacre was an attack on the entire national media and an attack against another opinion.

The National Media Council of Syria condemned this violence in all forms.  It also denounced the sanctions of the EU countries against the Syrian Television and said that they finalize them by cowardly acts against the Syrian media.

Blameful are the double standards of German journalists, colleagues.

War in the country and in the ether

The hot war is always prepared with a war against the heads. Also the war against Iran and Syria.

On June 2, the Arab League has closed Arabsat and Nilesat satellites for the Syrian state television, in order that the NATO propaganda of the Qatari ruler channel Al Jazeera and also Al Arabiya are not exposed by the facts of the Syrian side.

War against Journalists

Yesterday morning on 27 June 2012, the Syrian TV station al-Ikhbaryia was attacked.

Secretly, the most Syrians say, that Assad will not make it. Many have started to support him, since the external interference in Syrian affairs came to light, just after a few days; at least for the insiders.

In recent days, the “Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung” has – but not only this newspaper globally – discovered, that the NATO media were just as misguided about the massacre of al-Houla (al-Hula) as later the Western countries on the UN Security Council (UNSC).

But that therefore only a Syrian ambassador returned back to his job, any excuse on the part of NATO, some new advances to break the bloody power play of Washington: No chance!

Marat Musin of the news agency ANNA News has recorded a conversation with Father Maximos, an Orthodox priest from the Syrian city of Homs.

In light of the recently published reports of the desecration of Christian holy places by various armed gangs, this is currently very topical on the one hand; on the other hand, it is also quite surprisingly neutral, peaceful and conciliatory in content.

This is a clear indication that the religious or sectarian component that some want to teach in some media in addition to the riots in Syria (Alawites and Shiites vs. Sunnis, and so on…), is an influence from the outside and it is also a game with baser instincts.

Today, a serious attack against a TV station in Syria took place. The Arab League (AL) kills the freedom of information; its armed wing kills the people of Syria.

The attacks by the terrorists of the “Free Syrian Army” (FSA) and al-Qaeda against the Syria`s media is the command execution of the decision by the Arab League to silence Syria.

The Arab League (ALI) had decided to stop the broadcasting of the Syrian channels on Arabsat and Nilesat – the murderer wants to silence his victims.

Russia Today (RT) has reported that Russia suspended the delivery of the SAM-system (surface-to-air missile) Type S-300 missiles to Syria.

It was not known before, that there was a contract for the supply of such systems to Syria.

The information, that it is apparently like this, comes from the annual report 2011 of the engineering plant Nizhny Novgorod, where the S-300 surface-to-air missiles are assembled.

Quote from this annual report (Page 13):

At present, more than 10 contracts are for the supply of products and services at the stage of implementation. The largest of these are contracts for the supply of S-300 systems to Algeria – Contract volume of 39 million U.S. dollars – and Syria – Contract volume of 105 million U.S. dollars. These products should be delivered in the course of the year 2012 to the beginning of the year 2013.
