A Syrian in Aleppo's take on the Syrian 'refugee crisis' and the West's war against Syria

ALEPPO, SYRIA, 8 SEPTEMBER 2015: I have several points that I would like to share with you, they might shed a light or help us understand what's really going on. They might be unrelated, contradicted, or has an argumentative nature. I'll share my own ideas, and those of my Syrian friend who moved to Germany 2-3 years ago.

- The hysteric focus on the immigrants to Europe, is to create a public opinion, to support the European governments and armies to interfere in Syria, under humanitarian grounds. It's like scaring their people: "If we don't go to war, Europe will be invaded by Muslims, Arabs, Africans, and Asians."

I am Charlie but I don't think the Western newsmedia is a free press - that's our problem

This article argues that you could probably get away with some nasty cartoons in a truly free press because such a press would freely report all sides to a dispute and not leave whole regions and classes of people with no expression in an international argument mediatized by the very same bunch of pillaging and plundering power elites, corporate and government, who profit from their silence. The article also wonders (but does not profess to know) whether the cold blooded assassinations at Charlie Hebdo were really an act of Islamic terrorism, or another false flag, on the principle of cui bono.

What is happening in Syria - update from Mother Agnes Mariam

In Adra, Syria, in parts controlled by the 'rebels', more than 2,500 people have been abducted. No one knows their fate, however, according to reliable reports, scores of women taken hostage are raped and exhibited naked on balconies every day. Children have been thrown from roofs as the army has advanced. Inside we have embedded a video with statements from people who have survived in Adra. The Syrian government may be making some headway, however, against the terror. As reported here in another embedded video, there has been heartening reconciliation and amnesty between 'rebels' and the government in Babbila, Yalda, and Beit Sahem, three country towns in Damascus. Australia should not interfere with Syrian government attempts to restore order. They are Syria's only hope, although you will not hear this in the mainstream news, like the ABC or Murdoch papers.
