Here We Go Again: YouTube Clips Of Syrian “Chemical Attacks” Are Back – Meet The Man Behind The Propaganda

US foreign policy is becoming so easy and predictable, even Derek Zoolander can do it.

Two weeks ago, when discussing the relentless attempts to provoke, or at least greenlight another quasi war with Syria’s president Assad, we wrote “one can be confident that the ISIS “campaign” will continue and get ever
closer to Damascus until yet another appropriately-framed YouTube clip appears and leads to another war with Assad.

Fast forward to today, when precisely this script which by now everyone could predict, is being rerun.

According to Reuters, “a group monitoring the Syrian civil war said on Tuesday government forces carried out a poison gas attack that killed six people in the northwest, and medics posted videos of children suffering what they said was suffocation.” Of course it could be just a bunch of actors like in the summer of 2013, but that’s irrelevant – there is a YouTube clip out there and it is only a matter of time before John Kerry latches on to it as this year’s pretext to declare war on Syria.

Syria would laugh if it could, however it can’t: “a Syrian military source described the report of an attack in the village of Sarmin in Idlib province as propaganda. “We confirm that we would not use this type of weapon, and we don’t need to use it,” the source said.”

Too late: the “facts” are out there: “The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which tracks the conflict through a network of sources, said the six dead included a man, his wife and their three children. It cited medical sources as saying they died as a result of gas from barrel bombs dropped late on Monday and that the chemical used was likely chlorine. Dozens more were wounded in the attack, the Observatory said. Reuters could not independently verify the report.”

The propaganda is coming hot and heavy:

The Idlib branch of the Syrian Civil Defense rescue organization, which operates in insurgent-held areas, posted seven videos on YouTube, some at nighttime and some in a medical center.

One video showed three children and a woman, all apparently unconscious, in a medical center. A voice off camera said the name of the village, Sarmin, and Monday’s date.

“One of the infants, only a few months old,” a male voice says, shaking, as he films a baby on a gurney with liquid around its mouth. Two more infants with limp bodies are brought in, one by a man wearing a gas mask and another carrying a young girl.

“She’s still alive doctor,” a man checking the girl says. “Doctor, doctor, she is still breathing.”

The Syrian Civil Defense includes more than 2,000 humanitarian volunteers, known as the “White Helmets” for the hard hats they wear, who work as first responders in a country where the medical infrastructure has broken down.

Another video posted by the group and shot at night showed a very young girl, naked except for underwear and pink shoes, being doused in liquid by people wearing white helmets, her horrified expression illuminated by their headlamps shining on her face.

This is a good time for a look at just who this Syrian Observatory for Human Rights is, aside from an organization with some pretty impressive video editing skills. Here is a report from April 2013 written before the release of the infamous summer of 2013 YouTube clip which almost provoked world war over Syria, and should provide sufficient doubt about the veracity of any YouTube-based clips.

Pro-Democracy Terrorism”: The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights is a Propaganda Front funded by the EU

The NYT admits fraudulent Syrian human rights group is UK-based “one-man band” funded by EU and one other “European country.”

In reality, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has long ago been exposed as an absurd propaganda front operated by Rami Abdul Rahman out of his house in England’s countryside. According to a December 2011 Reuters article titled, “Coventry – an unlikely home to prominent Syria activist,” Abdul Rahman admits he is a member of the so-called “Syrian opposition” and seeks the ouster of Syrian President Bashar Al Assad:

After three short spells in prison in Syria for pro-democracy activism, Abdulrahman came to Britain in 2000 fearing a longer, fourth jail term.

“I came to Britain the day Hafez al-Assad died, and I’ll return when Bashar al-Assad goes,” Abdulrahman said, referring to Bashar’s father and predecessor Hafez, also an autocrat.

One could not fathom a more unreliable, compromised, biased source of information, yet for the past two years, his “Observatory” has served as the sole source of information for the endless torrent of propaganda emanating from the Western media. Perhaps worst of all, is that the United Nations uses this compromised, absurdly overt source of propaganda as the basis for its various reports – at least, that is what the New York Times now claims in their recent article, “A Very Busy Man Behind the Syrian Civil War’s Casualty Count.”

The NYT piece admits:

Military analysts in Washington follow its body counts of Syrian and rebel soldiers to gauge the course of the war. The United Nations and human rights organizations scour its descriptions of civilian killings for evidence in possible war crimes trials. Major news organizations, including this one, cite its casualty figures.

Yet, despite its central role in the savage civil war, the grandly named Syrian Observatory for Human Rights is virtually a one-man band. Its founder, Rami Abdul Rahman, 42, who fled Syria 13 years ago, operates out of a semidetached red-brick house on an ordinary residential street in this drab industrial city [Coventry, England].

The New York Times also for the first time reveals that Abdul Rahman’s operation is indeed funded by the European Union and a “European country” he refuses to identify:

Money from two dress shops covers his minimal needs for reporting on the conflict, along with small subsidies from the European Union and one European country that he declines to identify.

Photo: “Rami Abdelrahman, head of the Syrian
Observatory for Human Rights (Reuters)

Abdelrahman is not the “head” of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, he is the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, run out of his UK-based house as a one-man operation.

And while Abdul Rahman refuses to identify that “European country,” it is beyond doubt that it is the United Kingdom itself – as Abdul Rahman has direct access to the Foreign Secretary William Hague, who he has been documented meeting in person on multiple occasions at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office in London. The NYT in fact reveals that it was the British government that first relocated Abdul Rahman to Coventry, England after he fled Syria over a decade ago because of his anti-government activities:

When two associates were arrested in 2000, he fled the country, paying a human trafficker to smuggle him into England. The government resettled him in Coventry, where he decided he liked the slow pace.

Abdul Rahman is not a “human rights activist.” He is a paid propagandist. He is no different than the troupe of unsavory, willful liars and traitors provided refuge in Washington and London during the Iraq war and the West’s more recent debauchery in Libya, for the sole purpose of supplying Western governments with a constant din of propaganda and intentionally falsified intelligence reports designed specifically to justify the West’s hegemonic designs.

Abdul Rahman’s contemporaries include the notorious Iraqi defector Rafid al-Janabi, codename “Curveball,” who now gloats publicly that he invented accusations of Iraqi weapons of mass destruction, the West’s casus belli for a 10 year war that ultimately cost over a million lives, including thousands of Western troops, and has left Iraq still to this day in shambles. There’s also the lesser known Dr. Sliman Bouchuiguir of Libya, who formed the foundation of the pro-West human rights racket in Benghazi and now openly brags in retrospect that tales of Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi’s atrocities against the Libyan people were likewise invented to give NATO its sought-after impetus to intervene militarily.

Unlike in Iraq and Libya, the West has failed categorically to sell military intervention in Syria, and even its covert war has begun to unravel as the public becomes increasingly aware that the so-called “pro-democracy rebels” the West has been arming for years are in fact sectarian extremists fighting under the banner of Al Qaeda. The charade that is the “Syrian Observatory for Human Rights” is also unraveling. It is unlikely that the New York Times’ limited hangout will convince readers that Rami Abdul Rahman is anything other than another “Curveball” helping the corporate-financier elite of Wall Street and London sell another unnecessary war to the public.

* * *

This was written in April 2013, before the person above with the wilful assistance of his UK and EU funders, released the first YouTube clip meant to unleash war in Syria, and permit the passage of a Qatari gas pipeline under the nation, ending Gazprom’s energy monopoly over Europe.  The first time failed, and now the “Syrian Observatory for Human Rights” is back and eager to succeed where its warmongering propaganda failed the first time around.

 

[Bryan] “…I think the central powers are finally catching on…”

Finally? They were gearing up the Syrian rebel propaganda machine months before the fake Sarin attack in East Ghouta. Didn’t it strike you as a bit odd that East Ghouta neighborhoods had no running water or electricity or cell phone service, but ‘local activists’ were able to upload pre-edited dramatic video on some kind of high-speed internet connections? Internet connections which, presumably, were monitored and controlled by the Syrian government? Same thing applies if they were using their cell phones to upload the videos – the Syrian government controlls the cell phone networks.

The local ‘rebel activists’ had some kind of pre-arranged methods of uploading their videos that the Syrian government couldn’t disable or intercept. U.S. provided satellite-intenet access comes to mind. Now why would the U.S. gov provide computers and satellite internet access to these activists before the supposed Sarin attack?

“…Behind the curtain, pushing and pulling the buttions and levers is….. Bibi…”

He’s a large part of it, y3maxx. But the U.S. and the ME oil mafia have just as much incentive. Israel would have benefitted most from a U.S. cruise missile attack on Syria. Bibi was absolutely furious with Obama for backing down. But the U.S. and the ME oil mafia ‘made it up to Israel’ by establishing a huge Syrian rebel (mostly al Nusra) JSOC training camp in Jordan. The rebels of that so-called ‘Southern Army’ were the first to get the U.S. TOW missiles. Their military operations were confined almost exclusively to taking out Syrian anti-aircraft and electronic surveilance sites on the hills bordering the Golan. Israel and the U.S. wanted unhindered drone and bomber access to Damascus and got it. The same thing happened in North West Syria on the coastal hills – again, benefitting Israel and the U.S. by opening an air corridor for attacking North Syrian cities.

Israel and the GCC still have some conflicting goals – namely natural gas pipelines. Qatari gas piped across Syria would ultimately compete with the Leviathan Field gas of Israel, so it seems odd that they would cooperate. I could see Israel eventually back-stabbing Qatar by constantly blowing up their pipeline while Israeli gas pipelines kept flowing. Those attacks would, of course, be blamed on ISIS. Not sure how that’s going to play out, but all these powers are cooperating (however reluctantly) to get rid of Assad first. Al Nusra has every incentive to attack Israel, so they are obviously being paid not to attack it. Israel is even providing medical support for them in the Golan and Jordan. It ‘seems’ their plans have gone off the rails, but there’s too much at stake. You know they’re all scheming behind the scenes. As long as Israel/U.S./GCC can act before Russia does, they’ll get what they want.

The best source for details on what is happening in Syria is Ziad at Syrian Perspective.

https://syrianperspective.com

Yes, he is biased in favor of the Syrian people, the Syrian government, and the Syrian armed forces, and biased against the Coalition of the Killing, and he makes this clear. So what?

He also provides detailed reports from his sources in Syria.

As for the scumbag that calls himself the Syrian Observatory on Human Rights, he’s just another shill in the employ of MI6.

Another one is Eliot Higgins of the infamous propaganda site BellingCat. He was also quick to accuse the Syrian government of the Ghouta chemical attack (exposed by Seymour Hersh as a false flag). The guy came out of nowhere with bogus pseudoscientific claims and became the go-to reference for Human Rights Watch. His claims were subsequently discredited by a real scientist.

Last year Higgins generated more pseudoscience in support of the west’s claims about Russian complicity in the downing of MH17. This year, he claimed that US-made rifles found at the Donetsk airport after Kiev troops were driven out were not supplied by the US/NATO, but were Russian “trophies” from Georgia in 2008.

You’ve earned your potato for the day, but it’s too late to play the WMD card, that ship sailed LONG ago. We sold them to Saddam so he could gas Iranians and other Iraqis who opposed him. France, Germany, the UK all took part in those sales and it is no secret. The WMD were not active as bio and chemical weapons do have a shelf life.

Old WMD found by our “frenemies” ISIS: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/middleeast/iraq/10913275/Isis-…

Just because some shit was found from the 1980’s and 90’s it still doesn’t excuse the war, or the Depleted Uranium WMD we used over there which causes some horrendous birth defects and has a million year shelf life.

The rebels are confirmed to have used chemical weapons and so far the evidence that Assad used them has been iffy.  Assad has said he’s willing to give the weapons up if there are assurances the west will stop blaming him for using the weapons they can’t prove he used.

It’s always been the case that it’s easy, and usually accurate, to judge people by the friends and the company that they keep.

Rami Abdelrahman is a rat lover, a terrorist supporter, SOHR must be brought down due to its long list of criminal attempts to promote and propagate false flags and lies.

I can not stop laughing from the last attempt by SOHR to frame Syria in a supposed chlorine gas barrel bomb in Idlib two days ago, it was so pathetic that the lie basically died out before it got any legs…and that is exactly the fate of SOHR, to die out and people will not remember what the hell was this organization few weeks later.

FFS, at least leave out the ZH comments when in future scraping the arse of the barrel, Ziad!

PS: “precisely this script which by now everyone could predict, is being rerun“, is this the same one you reassured the Fanbois was ‘not a problem’ when Vlad voted “DA!” for Chap.VII retaliation on the next available pretext?

Watch how the mighty Lavrov will now ‘defend’ Syria by effectively saying to his Yanki ‘partners’, “Go ahead, be my guest!“.

It’s all part of the ‘military pressure’ strategy to induce Assad to ‘voluntarily’ bend over for ‘negotiations’ with something like a boat oar.

Interesting to note that besides the advances in Handarrat village and the now on going fights in Al Malah farms once more, the front on Bashkuy-Duwayr al Zaytun-Kafr Tunah remained unchanged and defenses are very solid. Worth noting as well the SAA/NDF advances in Layramoun, getting closer and closer to Kafr Hamra.

Hey Jasetat, you or your protege yesterday said ” It’s funny how you Iranian propagandists call a right royal drubbing a ‘victory’. After Hezbollah’s thrashing in 2006 which everyone not connected with the Iranian propaganda machine, acknowledged was a heavy defeat for Hezbollah, Hamas was given an even bigger drubbing in its latest confrontations with Israel, yet the Iranian media shamelessly called it a victory! LOL. At least in ’67 and ’73 wars Israel did indeed suffer casualties and destruction that far exceeded the standard 70-80 dead that the great ‘axis of resistance’ claims as a major blow against Israel!… Read more »

It appears that in conjunction with the ‘nuclear’ talks in Lausanne the Iranian allied media inside and outside Syria are renewing the push for a political solution. This will be a test of how much influence Iran has in Syria, already an economic delegation arrived the other day in Damascus no doubt attempting to bribe Syrian officials to jump aboard the vision of an Iranian-US agreed ‘political solution’. We should count Iran as already in the US camp, agreement or no agreement, if we look at the facts on the ground it is Iranian boots in Iraq that are fighting… Read more »

U.S. concerned about alleged IS use of chlorine http://news.xinhuanet.com/english/2015-03/17/c_134072269.htm WASHINGTON, March 16 (Xinhua) — The United States on Monday expressed concerns about alleged use of chlorine gas by the extremist group the Islamic States (IS) against Kurdish forces. “We are certainly concerned about it. We have not been able to independently confirm it,” said Pentagon spokesman Army Colonel Steven Warren. Iraqi Kurdish forces said on Saturday that they had proof that the IS, which occupied a vast area of Northern and Western Iraq, used chlorine gas against Kurdish forces in a car bombing attack in January. “We have seen what… Read more »

“’We, of course, reiterate our warning to the Assad regime not to interfere with US aerial assets over Syria,’ she added. … the source in Damascus said. ‘The aircraft entered areas where Daesh (ISIS) is not present.’ The fact that no Islamic State fighters are present in Latakia was also confirmed by the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. They say the drone was shot down in Al-Maqata, a village near the provincial capital of Latakia. ‘There are no opposition fighters or jihadist groups anywhere in that area, but there is a large presence of regime forces,’ said Observatory head… Read more »

Obama’s realisation on ISIS http://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2015/03/19/obama-s-realisation-is.html Foreign interventions, regime change and implanting democracy from the outside have all been failed strategies that have only served to destabilise the global scenario. Yet it is rare — especially for superpowers — to admit to the failure of such follies. In this context, Barack Obama’s recent comments regarding the rise of the self-styled Islamic State are a welcome realisation. The US president said the IS phenomenon “grew out of our invasion” of Iraq in 2003, while adding that the so-called caliphate was an ‘outgrowth’ of Al Qaeda in Iraq. Indeed the US — and… Read more »

It seems that more and more establishment figures are coming to the conclusion that the mantra ‘Assad Must Go!’ is not only redundant but that the opposite is true – no solution is possible without President Assad.

The latest is former Swiss Chief Prosecutor and a member of the UN Commission of Inquiry on Syria, Carla Del Ponte.

According to SANA: “Del Ponte believes that the sole solution to the crisis in Syria will be through dialogue and negotiation with the Syrian leadership.

“President al-Assad enjoys a great power, without him, negotiation is impossible,” Del Ponte said.

IS, established and expanding, although the Kuffar dislike it — Shabaab of Somalia considering invitation to unite and pledge allegiance to Abu Bakr and his Doodz.

Old Man Zawahiri’s AQ is obviously yesterday’s news and will soon be completely subsumed into this new and evidently superior political evolution, inspired as it is by the ‘can-do’ attitude of Zarqawi bathed by the beatific smile of the original Bin Laden.

Instead of being allowed to continue fomenting splits with his nationalistic letters, this embarrassed former leader will quickly be shoved out to the pasture of a comfortable and above all quiet retirement in Lahore.

quote Nobilitatis: You should not spend more money than what you collect. Not as an individual, not as a business and not as a state. If you do you will pile debt. Here you demonstrate that you are completely ignorant of economics. There is a world of difference between what makes sense for an individual and at state level.

Check your own indoctrination at the door, mein Freund!

‘Economics’ is a science only insofar as it has been made an integral part of the overarching propaganda superstructure of ImperioCapitalist mass mind-control used to keep the subject populations docile and acquiescent to the myth that, to quote Thatcher, ‘there is no alternative’.

A good few of the comments on that page
are very worthwhile in relation to the Greek situation in particular.

quote Nobilitatis: Anyway there is no magic in economy which makes it reasonable to pile up debt that you could not pay back on state level. In world operating on common sense this would be true but the world is increasingly dominated by financial institutions whose only product is debt. And the more of the is debt they can saddle states with the better for them, and the bigger the catastrophe for everybody else. This is what makes the US the supreme parasite: that it controls the debt-casino that is the current world economic order. The system must be changed… Read more »
