European News Wires Rewrite Syria Report

Agence France Presse duped its readers in its recent coverage of a reported U.S. deal offer to Syria. Read about it here. Thanks to blogger TT-kritik, who also noticed the manipulation at TT, Sweden's national news wire. Read about it (in Swedish) here.

Thank you for the publishing, CAMERA!

I’d like to answer the question why some European news wires like French AFP and Swedish TT silenced the USA alleged demand on Syria to stop supporting Palestinian terrorist groups.

Sins 1980-th the Arab-Israeli conflict was portrayed as “conflict between Israel and Palestinians.” This was the most successful PR-move the Arab and leftist spin doctors ever made. By silencing the role of the Arab countries an Iran in the ongoing war against Israel, they created the image of Palestinian David and Israeli Goliath.

Any mentioning of Arab countries, arming and exploding different Palestinian terrorist group in their proxy war, can destroy the myths of the “Palestinian underdog” and the “popular resistance”.
