The Syrian ‘Civil’ War

I’m not sure that the Syrian War was ever a civil war.    The inflammatory incident in Dara’a very early in 2011 was documented by false flag videos on Al Jazeera and was augmented by a huge weapons stash in the central Mosque, brought in through Jordan from Libya by foreign fighters.    The FSA were payed and trained by the Turkish and Qatari governments.    Syria is a multi-ethnic, religiously diverse country.   The Grand Mufti’s youngest son, a college student in Aleppo, was assassinated by a couple of Saudi hit men in mid 2011.   But, Ahmad Badreddin Hassoun, the most revered Sunni scholar in Syria did not quit.   He joined forces with the Orthodox Bishops to promote peace.   Both claim all Syrians as their children.

Foreign TV and print news framed the violence as a religious war, a sectarian war.   And it’s true that there has been considerable ‘Sunni’ fundamentalist violence directed at others.  However, the Grand Mufti’s story tell us it isn’t a ‘religious civil’ war as the highest Sunni stands with the minorities who are the victims.   The perception of a civil war confused many people, including Syrians, off the jump.   People had to adapt all over Syria to militias taking over their communities and propaganda from English language sources and Saudi Arabian and Qatari news outlets told them over and over that a civil war had begun and they would have to choose a side.    Massacres occurred, and  local press descriptions of events and government attempts to stabilize the situation were countered by the same international media, claiming that their own government and army were attacking citizens around the country.    This propaganda has been a very effective part of the war on Syria.
