September 11, 2011 – I like BBC coverage in general. I especially like it when the network explains why it has been covering a story a certain way. Today, on the internet site of the BBC World Service, there was an admission that because of the Syrian government’s unwillingness to allow reporters into the country, the BBC has been forced to rely on “amateur” videos of events and on the statements of “dissidents” and activists. Activist, in my idiolect, means “sunni fundamentalist supporter” or “sunni expatriate exile” or “sunni secularist-hater-Muslim Brotherhood sympathiser”. The majority of sunnis in Syria are secular people with a progessive outlook geared for propelling Syria into the 21st Century. Whatever the case, the BBC has explained its rotten coverage of Syria now in a satisfactory way. Thank you BBC.
All of you know how I feel about the Arab League. It is, and always will be, the YMCA of international organizations. Nabil Al-Arabi met with Dr. Assad yesterday for two hours and announced in Cairo that there was agreement over multi-party representation in three years. The Arab League cannot but treat with the Syrian government in this way. Syria is the beating heart of Arab nationalism and would bring the entire organisation down in a ball of fire if any action were taken aganst her by this motley crew of third rate carnival clowns. All apprehension about the Arab League has been calmed. All expectations of Western hypocrites have been dashed. All hopes for Arab League support for the traitors in the streets of Homs have been squelched. No more talk of Arab League.
Abu Mahmoud, my buddy in Beirut who has incontestibly strong ties to the SSNP, has confirmed that NYT’s Anthony Shadid, SyrianPerspective’s leading candidate for the Annual Tony Blair Liar’s Award, and his wife, Nada Bakri, notorious backstabbing, money-grubbing virago, are in the pay of the Saudi stooge and incestuous spawn, Saad Hariri and Company. Only this can explain their incredibly inept coverage of events in Syria – their constant reliance on the worst sources of information and their coordination of effort with Al-Jazeera, Al-Arabia, Foggy Bottom and Whitehall to promote sedition in Syria. They have failed! I suppose they’ll try to recant or display contrition in order to avoid the inevitable Day of Judgment. No amount of money the Hariri gang paid will spare them the Bed of Procrustes being furnished for them care of SyrianPerspective. Their’s was a fateful error.
Of all the daft, misconceived and snafu-laden plans of the U.S., nothing could ever match the numbskullish establishmen of the totally pro-American”Al-Hurra” news network. Let’s not dwell too long on how many Arabs actually watched it. You know no one did. But Al-Jazeera was the most popular news network in the Arab World at the time and the third largest in the world! Al-Jazeera was considered anti-American by all the screwball yankee senators and maladroit generals at the Pentagon. Do you know what the zionist neo-con manure peddlers thought up? Yes. “Let’s talk to Prince Fatso Husband of Madame Banana and convince him of the need to involve his government in the way news is broadcast. In this manner, we can have our Al-Hurra back on stage in the guise of Al-Jazeera to bring down Assad’s government.” But, sad to say, many of the jounalists at Al-Jazeera were Levantines who also operated according to standards of the highest order. Ghassan Ben Jeddo, Faisal Qassem, Joumana Nammour, Jamil Azar and Sami Kuleib, all left Al-Jazeera rendering the network a shadow of its former self – a sleep-inducing programme no more exciting than sermonette followed by the National Anthem. Today, nobody is watching Al-Jazeera. What a shame. Good work, Americans! And congratulations, Prince Fatso and First Lady Banana. Ziad Amin Abu Fadel.
