Lies Regarding Syria
Commentary by Michel Chossudovsky	
Global Research, February 1, 2012

We bring to the attention of our readers the Observers' Mission 
Report of the League of Arab States to Syria.

The report acknowledges the existence of  "an armed entity" involved 
in the killings of civilians and police as well as the conduct of 
terrorist acts, which in turn have contributed to triggering actions 
by government forces.

The Report refers to "armed opposition groups" as well as to the 
"Free Syrian Army",  both of which, according to the AL Mission, are 
involved in the deliberate killing of innocent civilians:

"In some zones, this armed entity reacted by attacking Syrian 
security forces and citizens, causing the Government to respond with 
further violence. In the end, innocent citizens pay the price for 
those actions with life and limb.

  "In Homs, Idlib and Hama, the Observer Mission witnessed acts of 
violence being committed against Government forces and civilians that 
resulted in several deaths and injuries. Examples of those acts 
include the bombing of a civilian bus, killing eight persons and 
injuring others, including women and children, and the bombing of a 
train carrying diesel oil. In another incident in Homs, a police bus 
was blown up, killing two police officers. A fuel pipeline and some 
small bridges were also bombed. "

"Such incidents include the bombing of buildings, trains carrying 
fuel, vehicles carrying diesel oil and explosions targeting the 
police, members of the media and fuel pipelines. Some of those 
attacks have been carried out by the Free Syrian Army and some by 
other armed opposition groups."

The Mission also underscored to role of media distortion in the 
coverage of events in Syria as well as the campaign to discredit ithe 
Mission's findings:

"The Mission noted that many parties falsely reported that explosions 
or violence had occurred in several locations. When the observers 
went to those locations, they found that those reports were unfounded.

"The maintenance of secrets acts like a psychic poison which 
alienates the possessor from the community" Carl Jung

Fear not therefore: for there is nothing covered that shall not be 
revealed; and nothing hid that shall not be made known. What I tell 
you in darkness, that speak ye in the light and what ye hear in the 
ear, that preach ye upon the housetops. Matthew 10:26-27

Die Pride and Envie; Flesh, take the poor's advice.
Covetousnesse be gon: Come, Truth and Love arise.
Patience take the Crown; throw Anger out of dores:
Cast out Hypocrisie and Lust, which follows whores:
Then England sit in rest; Thy sorrows will have end;
Thy Sons will live in peace, and each will be a friend.
