Be suspicious about the atrocity stories from Syria – not about the victims, but the alleged perpetrators:
A BRITISH journalist claims Syrian rebels set him up to die in a no man’s land near the Lebanese border, saying he believes they hoped he would be shot by government forces.
Channel 4 News’s chief correspondent, Alex Thomson, said in a blog post overnight a rebel escort led him, his driver, and his translator to a dead end in “free-fire zone” around the town of Qusair.
He says it was “quite clear the rebels deliberately set us up to be shot by the Syrian Army,” adding that if he and his colleagues were shot by government forces, then it would have been a propaganda coup for the rebels.
The “rebels” are of course the majority of sunni muslims who will Â annihilate the Christians and Alewites once they come to power. No matter how bad Assad is, what comes next is worse, far worse.
A UN report released Monday includes Syrian government forces and their allied “shabiha” militias for the first time on a list of 52 governments and armed groups that recruit, kill or sexually attack children in armed conflicts.

And theÂ BBC illustrated its reportÂ on the Houla massacre with a ten-year-old photo from Iraq. All this goes to show: when it comes to jihad violence, you just can’t trust the mainstream media. At all. Not even a little bit. “Report: Rebels Responsible for Houla Massacre,” by John Rosenthal inÂ National Review, June 9

German salafists now have a favorite issue: Syria. They collect donations and curse the dictator Assad as “enemy of Allah”. The security forces are alarmed: Syria could become a new travel destination for jihadists. (source)
