The second meeting of the so-called “Friends of Syria” in Istanbul, Turkey, is over and it has delivered all what you already could have expected in advance. If you declare the United States, Saudi Arabia and Qatar, who all have participated in this meeting, as friends of Syria, then it really needs no enemies anymore.

The three countries plus a few other states, like Turkey and France, are interested in a so-called “regime change” in Syria and this was also to realize in this second meeting of the so-called “Syrian Contact Group” in Istanbul.

The other states participate and try to pull their activities into perspective, to avoid that they also will be isolated. As with the first meeting of the so-called “Friends of Syria”, Russia and China refused to participate, also the Iraq has decided to stay away of this strange meeting.

The results of this so-called conference can be summarized relatively briefly: The only one to blame for the situation in Syria is the leadership in Damascus. Like Russia and China have already said before, it was a one-sided and hypocritically meeting in Turkey. Because of the massacres in Syria, they threatened the Syrian President Bashar al-Assad with consequences if he doesn`t immediately comply with the six-point plan from Kofi Annan.

The Gulf States like Qatar and Saudi Arabia, which are interested in arming the opposition fighters in Syria, are still kept on a slight leash, but finally, all have agreed on the support of the opponents of the Syrian President al-Assad, just like it was to expect. To boost the role of this support for the opponents of the Syrian government and President al-Assad, the 83 participating countries and organizations recognized the dubious and partly Islamist “Syrian National Council” (SNC) as the umbrella organization of the external Syrian oppositions.

Some of the Western editorial offices published the sentence that the so-called “Syrian National Council (SNC) is the legitimate representative of all Syrians”; which is interesting and shows the lack of objectivity and journalism within this Western offices.

Of course, this statement is false. Even in Qatar and Saudi Arabia they have acknowledged that the huge majority of Syrians support the Syrian president al-Assad and reject the so-called “Syrian National Council” (SNC).

As stated, it seems that Western media should dismiss some so-called journalists and recruit some real journalists; but even then, nothing would really change in the tone of these articles, based on false information, propaganda and also because of the economic pressure within these Western editorial offices.

Indeed, in reality, the contrast of some Western reports in newspapers, the head of the so-called “Syrian National Council” (SNC), Ghalioun, was disappointed that this questionable organization was only recognized as an official representative of the Syrian opposition and as a representative of the Syrians. Of course, the dubious head of the “Syrian National Council” (SNC), Ghalioun, brought in office by the Muslim Brotherhood, was interested in much more. Ghalioun had hoped, that “his Syrian National Council” (SNC) will be appointed as the legitimate representative of Syria, so that it is able to operate outside the real Syrian government in Damascus.

Similar to the model of the so-called Libyan rebels, who were recognized relatively quickly as a new transitional government of Libya. The questionable head of the “Syrian National Council” (SNC), Ghalioun, overlooks two things: the Libyan rebels were in the country and they were united with each other in one goal (what has already changed after the overthrow of the former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi (Qaddafi)). Both points don`t apply to the fractious bunch of exile-Syrians in the external opposition.

Of course, this wasn`t able to prevent, that Ghalioun has spread further poison against the legitimate Syrian government and the Syrian President in the capital Damascus; but Ghalioun is what he is, a wannabe and a liar, “elected” by the Muslim Brotherhood as a willfully puppet.

This time, Ghalioun said, that the people of Syria were suffering much more after the first meeting of the so-called “Friends of Syria” in Tunisia. This violence must be stopped. Ghalioun still covers the fact that the most violence is committed by “his” fighters in Syria. Of course, such statements are perfect for the democratic Western population and the Western mass media which was brought in line. Maybe, the events around Syria are the biggest propaganda show since the time of the Second World War

The partly sectarian head of the “Syrian National Council” (SNC), Ghalioun, used a wonderful phrase to convince the so-called “Friends of Syria” that the divided and mostly Islamist “Syrian National Council” is the right choice for the after Bashar al-Assad. Ghalioun stressed, that the democracy for which they fight, is the natural enemy of terror. The AIPAC-Darling, Hillary Clinton, must have instructed him very well.

This statement was very nice, indeed, but unfortunately, just a completely empty phrase, from lips of a man who has no real idea of Syria anymore, and who is the so-called head of a dubious “organization”, which consists in its majority of Islamists and radicals. Not to mention that the huge majority in Syria reject this “Syrian National Council” (SNC), in contrast what Western media tries to sell.

The number of liberals and religious minorities, who are supposed to be represented in this “Syrian National Council” (SNC) are (if they exist at all) extremely slight. The fact, that the most Syrians are very worried about their future after the downfall of President al-Assad, is fully justified. Again, the reference to the events in and about Libya is also justified. Libya is just before a civil war or rather before the decay, supporters of the former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi (Qaddafi) are still tortured and killed.

The so-called NATO rebels and al-Qaeda thugs within Libya are not really united and not willing to lay down their army. They fight for more power and influence. The “Libyan National Transitional Council” is a huge farce and just a puppet. Dark perspectives, which could also expect the Syrians.

Of course, during the dubious meeting of the so-called “Friends of Syria” in Istanbul yesterday, they have spoken again and again about the atrocities committed by the Syrian government and the Syrian army, and stressed, that this violence must come to an end.

The fact, that the most violence is committed by the “Syrian rebels”, was hidden. (Not to mention that the violence of both sides has to end). Germany, for example, has also something to contribute to the imperialism and the exploitation of more sovereign, independent states. Being under pressure by other governments and organizations, the German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle has announced further sanctions against Syria and also increased the German “humanitarian assistance” for Syria to 5.7 million Euros.

Good job, Guido, now take a seat. Germany has fulfilled its duty. Of course, during the questionable meeting in Istanbul, it was also mentioned, that the crime against humanity should be recorded, so that the responsible people can be punished later – if the Syrian President al-Assad is still alive then. Just recall Libya and the threats of some exile-Syrians that al-Assad has to die like Gaddafi (Qaddafi).

Not to mention the dubious persons who said, that al-Assad and his whole family have to be killed – statements by members of the external opposition. All well and good, but why is nobody mentioning the atrocities committed by the “Free Syrian Army” (FSA), the Libyan fighters, Iraqi jihadists, al-Qaeda thugs and other foreign mercenaries and religious radicals in Syria? The atrocities committed by the so-called “opposition forces” in Syria?

But OK, why should they mention this? Considering the latest reports by Human Rights Watch (HRW) or the Vatican about the human rights violations of the “opposition forces” in Syria, it seems that a great bunch of hypocrites has participated in the meeting in Istanbul yesterday. Not to mention the reports (e.g. AI / HRW) about the fact that these “opposition forces” (e.g. FSA) use child soldiers in their fights against the Syrian army.

Again, we should also mention that Human Rights Watch (HRW), the Vatican and Amnesty International (AI) have known about these violations of human rights in Syria by the “Free Syrian Army” and other opposition groups / fighters since a long time and not only since a month. These human rights organizations are to put into questions.

But this fact, that a lot of violence is committed by the “Free Syrian Army” (FSA) in Syria and that the Syrian army tries to protect the Syrian population, was completely faded out at this conference of the “Friends of Syria”. No surprise, that the most Syrians in Syria call this group the “Enemies of Syria”; only your Western media will not tell you this. The so-called “Friends of Syria” listened to the demands of Ghalioun to arm the “opposition forces” in Syria and the Qatari suggestion to form Arabic “peacekeeper troops”, although these proposals were rejected in public until now.

Of course, also Saudi Arabia calls for the arming of the “Free Syrian Army” (FSA) in Syria, but as long as this demand is not internationally blessed, they will go on to financially support these radical fighters and to deliver weapons behind the curtains. The officially financial support for these armed groups (e.g. religious fanatics, violent criminals) in Syria has been announced yesterday.

The fighters of the “Free Syrian Army” (FSA) will receive about $ 100 million in the next three months from the known Gulf States. The payment for the armed fighters in Syria, which have committed and still commit violations against human rights, terror against Syrian soldiers, policemen and even civilians. In addition, they hope that this money will be able to smear the regular Syrian soldiers so that more and more will switch the sides. To end corruption by corruption and to bring democracy with terror and violence is sure no good base for a better Syria.

Well done to all those who support and who contribute to the further escalation of the situation and the deteriorating situation in Syria. The West still makes the same failures as always. The West is, as well as the “Syrian National Council” (SNC), responsible for the further violence and bloodshed in parts of Syria. Since when are revolutionaries paid for their revolution?

As was already said by a member of the “Syrian National Council” (SNC), about $ 500,000 were already delivered to the fighters in Syria last week, in ways that should not be called in more detail. This means, that this huge money was illegally brought into Syria to support armed radicals and so-called “opposition forces”. Not to mention that money is sure not all.

Arms, advice and equipment also. On the one hand, they support the “Free Syrian Army” (FSA) with money and weapons; on the other hand, they demand the implementation of the six-point plan from the Syrian President Bashar al-Assad? WTF? Is this logical? Not really. It´s a huge farce.

The Syrian President al-Assad has already agreed to the peace treaty, the six-point plan from Kofi Annan, but has also said that he will continue to fulfill its obligation to protect the Syrian population, which is understandable. This means he will not withdraw the Syrian troops from the cities before the opponent does not lay down their weapons and stop their bloodshed, especially against Syrian minorities.

Meanwhile, the so-called external Syrian opposition has never agreed this six-point plan. Just like the “Syrian National Council” (SNC) has always rejected any offers for negotiations and discussions to solve the situation peacefully. Who`s more democratic? The so-called external opposition announced after the hypocritical meeting of the “Friends of Syria” in Istanbul, that they will stop the fighting, when the Syrian government withdrew its soldiers. Of course, this step was to expect and it`s just another farce in this game.

This so-called “Syrian opposition” has never shown real honesty and willingness to negotiate until now. Not to mention that this opposition doesn`t have the full control over all armed “opposition forces” in Syria.

The spokesperson of the Syrian Foreign Ministry, Jihad Makdissi (Maqdissi), announced on Friday on Syrian television, even before the announcement of the financial support of the “Free Syrian Army” (FSA) by foreign powers, that the so-called “rebellion” is over that that the phase begins, where is all about creating stability and prospects for reforms and developments in Syria.

Whether this is really feasible is questionable. Especially in light of the financial support of the “Free Syrian Army” (FSA) from the Gulf States; this will strengthen these armed fighters again. The vultures are still circling over the heads of the Syrian government; some of them are beginning to nosedive. Even Turkey signaled an understanding of the armament of the enemies of Bashar al-Assad. Davutoglu and Erdogan have announced comprehensive support for Assad’s opponents, especially, if the opponents are from the Sunni camp. (Of course…)

Turkey reaffirmed the possibility of a demilitarized buffer zone along the Turkish-Syrian border, ie create a refuge for gunmen, where these armed criminals, Islamists and radical mercenaries receive new weapons and ammo. A war, just behind the curtains. The meeting of the “Friends of Syria”, the so-called Syrian Contact-Group, ended like expected. This meeting just confirmed what was already known in advance. Not to mention that the arming of these radical fighters is already happening since months.

The West still tries to sell the imagination to their populations, that they only stick to the peace plan for Syria and that the Syrian government is the only responsible for all crime. The situation within Syria isn`t black and white and that journalism is under pressure by economic reasons and other relationships is more and more obvious. Kofi Annan has already spoken with the Chinese and Russian government. Annan wants to negotiate with Iran and Saudi Arabia now.

The armed groups in Syria have time and support enough to continue their fight against the regular Syrian army, to torture civilians, to film all this for further staged and faked videos. The Syrian government seems to bob up and down. The seriousness of the situation seems to still not have reached the most parts of the Syrian government.

The regular contact with the Syrian population is missing, also actually deeds that prove that the Syrian government has figured out to finally move its butt out of the situation and deeds that confirm that it is able to protect all Syrian civilians are missing.
