REFLECTING ON SYRIA, A Photo Essay by Andre Vltchek & Yayoi Segi

Damascus – city of dreams

Ms. Yayoi Segi is based in Beirut, Lebanon, and she has worked in Syria for almost 3 years. She is extremely passionate about the country, which she admires and tries to support in her position as an accomplished specialist in national education development.

She agreed to share her collection of personal photos from Damascus, Homs and Aleppo.

I asked about her impressions regarding Syria and its people, and she replied, frankly:

“Syria is not what the mainstream media wants us to believe it is. One has to see it, to understand. Seeing is believing! It is an extraordinarily exceptional country. All that we have been told about Syria and its people is a lie.”

And what is the war doing to the country?

“The war… it is devastating the country. Life is of course tough now, but it never stopped; it definitely goes on. Electricity is cut often and water supplies are limited, but still life goes on. People endure; they even socialize. Syrians are very humble, very caring, warm and gentle people. They like to joke. They believe in their nation, in themselves; they are truly remarkable.”

Yayoi has been literally dedicating her life to the Syrian nation. She is ‘building schools’ there, and she is defending the nation whenever she goes. She is drawn to the Syrian people and she admits that she is philosophically close to them. She says:

One of gates of Damascus – martyrs and heroes

“It is extremely important, what goes on in Syria, especially on the ideological front in highly politicized field of education, because ideology shapes education, and vice versa.”

“Even in the time of crises that was implanted from outside, the Syrian people still maintain tremendous sense of solidarity towards those whose lives have been shattered for decades, mainly Palestinians.”

Conversation: An Open Letter to President Trump , by Tom Duggan

Dear President Trump,

While walking through the city of Damascus at around 11.36 today a missile went over my head , passed a school yard with close to 200 children from ages 6-10 and exploded down the street ,luckily none of the children were hurt ,but to witness 200 children in shock and terror is not a pleasant sight ,children shaking some crying, running in all directions some just frozen to the spot , now I know you have only been in office for a meagre 100 days ,and have been ineffective in both domestic and foreign policy , the only action you have done is to bomb Syria in support of your so called moderate rebels , well these so called moderate rebels ,target populated areas at the time when children are playing , or during rush hour for maximum damage , listen to children scream in fear is not a good thing , I wonder what your reaction would have been if the missile had hit the school playground ?

But then you would not know as MSM would not report it ,please do what you said during your election campaign and put America first, and stop supporting terrorism, build a better America and never bomb a sovereign state ,to improve your popularity among the American public ,or listen to lies from advisors ,you should change the advisors you have, as sooner or later they will make you look more foolish than you are at this moment.

One very angry English man.

Yours,

Tom Duggan

Conversation: The Bloodlust Calls

The average western mainstream ‘good citizen’ is in a state of satanic trance. In between the yoga classes and eco friendly living they still feel a thirst.

This thirst is shared by their fellow red necks too. The common man in the west has absorbed the propaganda dished out by their governments and media from cradle to school to adulthood and will keep drinking the koolaid to their graves.

But this thirst requires a ritual sacrifice in far away lands of brown and black people ruled by ‘brutal dictators’ as their media constantly trumpets. The lure is too strong, the thirst too deep…they need a feed.

And so they – like a cult – want more war, more blood and gore ! Then they will go in a few years and cast a ballot to cleanse their conscience by participating in ‘democracy’ as they ‘elect’ another bloodhound.

The bloodlust calls.

America Illegally Bombs Syria Under False Pretexts. Links for critical thinking. , by Eva Bartlett

Source: In Gazza

*“…the White Helmets are handling the corpses of people without sufficient safety gear, most particularly with the masks mostly used , as well as no gloves. Although this may seem insignificant, understanding the nature of sarin gas that the opposition claim was used, only opens questions. Within seconds of exposure to sarin, the affects of the gas begins to target the muscle and nervous system. There is an almost immediate release of the bowels and the bladder, and vomiting is induced. When sarin is used in a concentrated area, it has the likelihood of killing thousands of people. Yet, such a dangerous gas, and the White Helmets are treating bodies with little concern to their exposed skin. This has to raise questions.” (from: “Jumping to conclusions; something is not adding up in Idlib chemical weapons attack“)

This morning, under the orders of President Trump, the US military fired a reported 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles at an airbase in Syria, killing at least 6, according to early reports. The false pretext for this is the tired old refrain that “Assad used chemical weapons”, a ‘red line crossed claim’ made–and disproven–in 2013 in Ghouta, and in allegations prior and since. Any actual instances were the western-backed ‘rebels’. All others were fabrications of the NATO aligned media and faux human rights groups.

I’ll keep my own commentary short other than to emphasize that I do not believe for one second that the Syrian government used toxic gases on Idlib last week. My reasons are logical and many, but I will list just a few here and continue with suggested reading/listening:

The Syrian army had no need to do so, are making advances on the ground in various areas of Syria with conventional means of fighting terrorism.  Using a chemical weapon is precisely the ‘red line’ act America and NATO/Gulf/Zionist allies would leap upon to wage their war of ‘regime change’ fully on Syria, as per Libya and Iraq before. Meanwhile, western-backed ‘rebels’ have a history of using toxic gas in Syria (even the UN’s Carla del Ponte admitted this).

-Recently, apparently relations with America, via Trump, had improved. At the time of the alleged gas attacks, relations were looking positive. (That said, today, sadly, Trump has launched an illegal attack on Syria, using at least 59 cruise missiles on a military site and causing unknown deaths. This is an unprovoked act of war. Trump/America have zero evidence that the Syrian government authorized and used toxic gas, something even the United Nations admittedeven the United Nations admitted.)

For the sake of time, because this is an urgent issue that needs clear thinking and a firm stance against American (and Zionist/NATO/Turkish/Gulf) attacks on Syria, I am posting excerpts from a number of good analyses already online. Please share.

Ex-UK Ambassador: Assad wasn’t behind the chemical attack“, Apr 5, 2017

“Former British Ambassador to Syria Peter Ford says he believes it is “highly unlikely” that Russia or the Assad regime was behind the attack in Idlib.”

Even a worm will turn → to become a geopolitical boomerang → more testimony from Orly to Palmyra, Paul Matthews

“To whom do lions cast their gentle looks ? Not to the beast that would usurp their den. The smallest worm will turn being trodden on, And doves will peck in safeguard of their offspring” – Lord Clifford speaking in William Shakespeare’s Henry the Sixth, Part III, Act ii Scene ii.

The gears mesh closer than ever before to keep unpleasant events unfolding and people from thinking. Yet the can of worms doth burst open. Verily, something is rotten in the state of Denmark, when a slip of the tongue by a Mossad operative reveals Israel’s involvement in the 7/7 London bombings. Meantime the French authorities strive to preserve the State of Emergency at all costs. So nobody is surprised to learn that Zied Ben Belgacem, aged 39, was a vulnerable, marked man, with a criminal record, ‘radicalised’ in prison and easily manipulated.

Cynical and unmoved by what passes for information among friends and neighbours, glutted with fake news items, one raises an eyebrow when a reliable, independent source reveals that the first photo of the Orly attacker lying dead last weekend was released by a pro-Israeli website, that the Jewish state controls video surveillance at the airport – among other strategic ‘business acquisitions’ surrendered to Zionism by an erstwhile ‘free world’ and that a ‘dress rehearsal’ for the attack occurred 11 days prior to the act of a man doped with cannabis, cocaine and alcohol. No amount of smoke and mirrors or doctored reports, melded with images of stars with perfectly airbrushed bodies, can disguise the ugly, unvarnished truth. Psyops and false flags are now weapons of mass indoctrination to provoke chaos and popular distrust, whether in Europe, North America or the Middle East.

While mass media coverage signifies the skilful retouching of texts and photos, editing and falsification to dissuade the inquiring mind, nothing can hide the identity of those telling one barefaced lie after another.

Moreover there are physical and psychological limits to what propaganda, disinformation and brainwashing can achieve. Social engineering and censorship – vital assets in a police state – have become double edged swords.

For Hassan Nasrallah, denouncing the billions squandered by the Arabian peninsula in the service of Israel – to the detriment of Arab nations – a pivotal moment has arrived. To paraphrase comments by the Secretary General of Hezbollah in the video (Cf. infra), the evil spell has backfired well and truly to blast the sorcerer. As never before, the true nature of the Empire of Terror is revealed in graphic detail. Whether exemplified by the Orly airport attacker’s corpse or the gore and debris strewn in Palmyra and the Golan, the Emperor wears no clothes.

Conversation: “Human Rights Watch” vs. Professor Stephen Cohen

Watch the head of Human Rights Watch speak for Al Qaeda with a straight face. Of course, Democracy Now is itself Al Qaeda propaganda light.
