The following video was recorded by a member of the so-called Free Syrian Army (FSA). He has published the recording online because he did not agree with what his group has done.

The video further down shows how the terrorists blew up a mosque in Aleppo, while they are cheering and shouting “Allahu Akbar”.

As already explained in the article “The Wahhabis are destroying Mecca without resistance” (English / German), the Sunni sect of the Wahhabis are destroying historical mosques and shrines at the holy places in Mecca and Medina as well as in other Muslim countries because they would be “heresy”.



One thing that always moves me to express my opinion about it is when I see hypocrisy and double standards when things are measured with a double standard. This time it is about a question that I want to ask my Muslim readers.

Why there are many protests worldwide over cartoons and films, which are seen as an attack on the faith, but we hear not even a peep from you about the fact that the Saudi royal family is destroying the holiest places of Islam? Is this no attack on the faith?

The ruling sect of Wahhabis demolishes historic buildings in Mecca and Medina, and there is no protest. Such as the birth house of Mohammed, there is a library now. Added to this is that the Wahhabis are those who fund the Islamic extremists of the Salafists that are pushing the entire Islam in a bad light with their bloodthirsty terrorism.


A melange of deserters, NWO-satraps and bandit chiefs will probably tomorrow, on 4 November, in Doha in Qatar, which is predestined for such subversive activities, establish a “Syrian government in exile”, after once again “all differences” of the different fractions will be put aside.

Here one would like to comment immediately that “government in exile” is a term that is used for a genuine, real government, which was forced by not representable reasons for them, to leave the seat of government of their country and their country.

However, when a bunch of sinister or at least opaque dudes in comfortable under pleasant climatic conditions and for the money of other countries founds some institution, so this has to undoubtedly be named somehow different than a “government in exile”.


While the foreign supporters of the Syrian President Bashar al-Assad know what they want, the objectives of the states, that want to help the regime’s opponents, remain unclear.

The two recent political victims of the “Arab Spring”, the Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu, also have sure imagined this different some time ago.

Intoxicated by the seemingly inevitable breakthrough of the JDP (Justice and Development Party / AKP), which has led to a transformation of the old Kemalist Turkey, it has urged them into the Middle Eastern politics, in order to provide the new JDP-Turkey finally the proper role in world politics.

The following actions were always spectacular, but it was never quite clear, what was really the objective of them. There was the deliberately sought confrontation with Israel about the Gaza “flotilla”, the rumble in the direction of Europe, the self-presentation as a “modern” Islamic state model, the cozying up to Iran and Syria, and, last but not least, the dream of a “Neo-Ottoman” Turkey as the centre of power in the Middle East with global ambitions to even higher Orders.


Peter Scholl-Latour is probably one of the best known journalists in Germany – also because of his unconventional positions and interpretations. Some interviews with Mr Peter Scholl-Latour about Syria were already published in recent months.

Meanwhile, the best-selling author has also published his new book with the title “The world out of joint” (Original: Die Welt aus den Fugen). Here is a translation of the recent interview with Peter Scholl-Latour about the Syrian conflict, the current role of Turkey and also about the so-called Syrian rebels, which are not really the kind of rebels which people should like.

In contrary, these Western-backed fighters, terrorists and religious fanatics are even totally worse than the Syrian leadership under the Syrian president Bashar al-Assad was ever accused with.


A reporter from the BBC (mainly biased reports) has seen wooden crates in the Syrian city of Aleppo and was able to photograph these crates. These pictures of the reporter confirm that Saudi Arabia, an ally of the United States and an economic partner of Israel; deliver ammunition and weapons to the so-called “Free Syrian Army” (FSA) in Syria.

The BBC reporter made pictures of three boxes, which are from a weapons manufacturer in Ukraine. This is not surprising. Already months ago, there were rumors that weapons from Ukraine and Georgia are smuggled behind the borders of Syria.

These crates with the weapons and ammunition for the Western-backed radicals, fighters and al Qaeda members were addressed to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.


The Syrian Arab Army has discovered another arms cache, which was hidden in a drainage canal in the Syrian capital Damascus, while the battles and the urban warfare in parts of the country between the Syrian Army and the Western-backed terrorists and religious fanatics continue.

The hidden arms cache was discovered in the Qaban area of the Syrian capital Damascus on Sunday. Among the discovered weapons, the Syrian Arab Army has also found rocket propelled grenades and also a mortar launcher.

As usually, the weapons are either hidden in tunnels like it was the situation in Qaban (Damascus), in empty flats and, sadly but true, the Western-backed armed groups of the so-called “Free Syrian Army” (FSA) also converted mosques into bases and weapons depots. Of course, because of reasons.

As military sources have told, a number of these armed fighters and mercenaries were also killed during the fighting between the Syrian Arab Army and these Western-backed groups in this district of Damascus on Sunday.


The German expert on affairs in the Middle East Mr. Peter Scholl-Latour speaks about the violence in the Middle East, hate-preachers from Saudi Arabia and the dangers of the future.

Peter Scholl-Latour, with his intimate knowledge of the Islamic world, blames the West with a massive misinterpretation in considering the new outbreaks of violence in several Arab countries.

In his interview with the editor Mr. Thomas Shepherd of the German newspaper “Saarbrücker Zeitung”, the 88-year-old Middle East-expert, Mr. Peter Scholl-Latour, demands more restraint of the West in this region of the world.

(The original interview with Mr. Scholl-Latour was published on 15/09/2012 here)

Interview with Mr. Peter Scholl-Latour:

Editor: Mr. Scholl-Latour, the Arab world is in turmoil, embassies burn, there are dead. What is currently happening in Libya, Egypt and elsewhere? Where does this hatred come from?

Peter Scholl-Latour: The West and especially the Americans have started with an illusion from the beginning. They believed that a revolution against the local potentates would lead to a Western form of democracy in these countries. This is clearly not the case.  Take Libya as an example: The people there wanted to get rid of the dictator, no doubt.

But the opponents of Gaddafi were no pro-American forces, but in contrast, they were especially Islamists – and very, very dedicated (Islamists). In addition, there is this stupid movie now, a form of defamation of the Prophet Mohammed, which goes far beyond of what they were earlier used to by cartoons.

The Americans always think that the enemy of their enemies must necessarily be their friend. But they are wrong. They already were wrong with this in Afghanistan.

Because the Afghans had fought very bravely against the Soviets, the Americans thought that the Afghans became pro-Western, but that was nonsense, of course. I was traveling with radical mujahedeen in the time of the war against the Russians.

While they were fighting against the Russians, they also shouted at the same time “Death to America”. I was wondering if they are crazy, because they were operating the war by American money. But they sang: “Neither the west, nor the east, but only Islamic”. One has to know that.

Editor: What is behind the murder of the U.S. ambassador to Libya?

Mr. Scholl-Latour: One has to see that chaos is threatening in Libya, because there are a lot of tribes in this country. Moreover, there are several Islamic brotherhoods, and what should not be underestimated, the emergence of the Salafists – Islamic extremists, financed and armed of all from the Western allies Saudi Arabia.

I suspect that what has happened in Benghazi has been initiated by such forces, because in Libya, a moderate government was elected, which was set up by the Americans. The slain U.S. ambassador was the one who has built up the opposition government against Gaddafi.

Editor: You mentioned Saudi Arabia. Is the danger, which is posed by Saudi-Arabia, underestimated?

Mr. Scholl-Latour: There are two forces. On the one hand, the government, it has an interest in the status quo and seeks the protection of the Americans. And on the other side, there are the religious institutions – and they are relentless. The people, who have blown up the World Trade Center, were no Afghans, they were Saudis.

And if hate preachers occur here, then they are persons from Saudi Arabia. It is the land that is, in terms of religion, the most reactionary country of all. But one needs the Saudis, just because of the oil. The Americans have totally taken a side and want to make the Saudis strong against the Iran. And we (Germany) provide (Saudi Arabia) them with another 600 Leos (tanks).

Editor: How do you assess the situation in Syria?

Mr. Scholl-Latour: The Assad regime was bad, but it was no better and not worse than others. In terms of religion, the Syrians have been infinitely much more tolerant than Saudi Arabia, which do not tolerate Christians at all, where one is not allowed to import cross and a Bible. Syria is much more liberal. But the whole wrath of the West is against Assad and they do not consider who is really part of the opposition.

This uprising in Aleppo is no longer a Syrian uprising. The ones, who are really fighting, are mostly people who have previously fought in Iraq, running around with black flags and they totally reject the West. They are what is commonly known as Al Qaeda. These bombings, which are occurring in Syria again and again, which are not carried out by Syrian nationalists, must be implemented by people who are deeply steeped in religion.

In Syria strange as it sounds, Al Qaeda became an ally of the Americans. We came there to the absurd situation that Assad will eventually be overthrown, which will lead to a long civil war.

The twelve percent of the Alawites in the Syrian population know that after the fall of Assad that they will not only lose their privileges, but that they also would get massively massacred. But the Alawites will defend themselves to the last. The war could then jump on Iraq.

Editor: Can the West do anything?

Mr. Scholl-Latour: We should finally stay out of the whole story. These constant proclamations that we are now applying tougher sanctions (e.g. sanctions against Iran, Syria …), only harms the poor people. I witnessed it in Iraq, when it was not allowed to import chemicals for many years.

The ground there could not be fertilized, it was not enough food there, water could not be purified, and the infant mortality rate has increased enormously.

Editor: Should the West just watch?

Mr. Scholl-Latour: Whom do you want to come to the rescue? In Egypt, the military or the Muslim Brotherhood? Do you want to help the Salafists, who are funded by Saudi Arabia, but are the most rabid enemies of the West and also recruit people over here? Whose side do you want to join? The West cannot do anything anyway. He is also not able to do anything militarily.

Editor: Your new book is called “The world goes to pieces”. This is probably correct.
Mr. Scholl-Latour: The equilibria, which have stabilized in crises in former times, this understanding between Washington and Moscow, is not happening at the moment. Then, in addition, there is an uncertainty for the future, there is a new world power: China. Insignificant are only the Europeans with their internal trifles.

Editor: In conclusion, where are the trouble spots of the future?

Mr. Scholl-Latour: There will be riots in Algeria. Also, the mercenaries of Gaddafi have returned to their home countries with their weapons. We see the result in Mali: The northern part is in the hands of the Islamists. And it’s not only Mali. Niger dissolves; Burkina Faso stands on swaying feet, in Nigeria are signs of evil, where extremists systematically murdered Christians.

What one does not think of: It would be the responsibility of Christians to care for the Christians in the Middle East. But that is nobody doing. The Pope could paint the town red a little bit more; a few pious sayings, that is not enough. He really has to rise a more powerful voice.

Personal information of Mr. Scholl-Latour

Mr. Peter Scholl-Latour was born March 9, 1924, in Bochum, Germany, as a son of a physician and he is a Franco-German journalist and publicist. In 1945 and 1946, Mr. Scholl-Latour became a member the Commando Parachutiste Ponchardier, a unit of French paratroopers, with whom he has even fought in the First Indochina War.

He has studied political science, Arabic and philology in Mainz, Paris and Beirut. In 1948, he was a volunteer of the German newspaper “SZ” for which he has reported from Africa and Asia among others. He has worked as a journalist since 1950, spending many years as a correspondent in Africa and Indochina, as a studio manager in Paris, as television director of the tv station WDR, and editor-in-chief of the German magazine Stern. In 1973 he and his team were prisoners of the Viet Cong for about one week.

In 1954 and 1955 he was a spokesman for the government of the Saarland under the Prime Minister John Hoffmann.  Scholl-Latour is also one of the most successful non-fiction authors in Germany.

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 Syrian command placed the government of Ottoman illusion before the hour of truth, after the Syrian air force deterred the Turkish combat jet which violated Syria’s airspace. Hence, the downing of the Turkish aircraft constituted a strong message to Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan who has always been known for his threats to justify direct intervention in Syria. Firstly, the confusion was clear at the level of the Turkish reaction vis-à-vis the Syrian strong deterrence which drew a line of fire on the border, in parallel to the progress of the Syrian Arab army’s operations which aim at cleansing the border regions from the pits of armed and terrorist groups and at ending the smuggling of weapons and armed elements from Turkey.

Numerous journalistic reports revealed that the Turkish government was sponsoring networks smuggling arms and camps in which the armed men are being trained, especially following the New York Times report which pointed to the presence of officers from the CIA in the Turkish border regions, managing the operations in Syria and informing the armed terrorist gangs about the positions and movements of the Syrian Arab army via American satellite images. Moreover, according to Arab experts, the information is also being collected via reconnaissance operations carried out by Turkish fighter jets or American unmanned planes which the American newspapers have already revealed they were conducting flyovers on the Syrian border. That same report also assured that a CIA team was supervising the smuggling of weapons purchased by Saudi Arabia and Qatar for the Syrian armed gangs.

Secondly, a Turkish governmental source denied this report and Turkey’s involvement in the smuggling of weapons and armed men, thus using political hypocrisy when talking about the wish to end the violence witnessed in Syria. It was clear, based on the Turkish reaction to the downing of the plane that the hour of truth and the brink of the abyss engineered by the Syrian administration placed Erdogan in a critical position. Therefore, he had no other option but to accept the opening of the hot lines between the commands of the Syrian and Turkish armies under the headline of the search for the missing pilots, instead of using the incident as a pretext to trigger a war which Erdogan repeatedly said he was willing to launch, as opposed to the reports he received from the Turkish generals and the economic officials in his country, opposing involvement in any war with Syria.
