The Ongoing Developments in Syrian Mass Media Means

 '' Syria has been exposed to a media attack; media, notwithstanding its importance, cannot outdo the reality. They might be stronger in space- satellite transmission-, but we are stronger on the ground than in the space. Still, we want to win on the ground as well as in the space." said H.E. President Bashar Al-Assad in press statements following the casting of his vote  in Syria's New Constitution referendum, February 26  2012. In his statements, President Al-Assad underscored that the Syrian official media is the best in the region, with an eye on competing not with those who are less, but who are better. Such a mad hysterical media attack of fabrications, lies and disinformation against everything Syrian has been escalated and aggravated by petro-dollar and western media outlets, which affirms, as President Al-Assad declared on August 29, 2012, that the '' Syrian media managed to expose them and undermine their media empires'' as a further ''proof of the success of Syrian media''.

Here comes, actually, the underway modifications, upgrades, and-at times- drastic changes in Syrian mass media means tackling of domestic, regional and international issues of interest. More space as well as coverage- opposition meetings in Syria are being covered live on State TV- is accorded to different ideas and views representing many angles of Syria's spectra. Many of the analysts, researchers, and politicians, unfortunately absent for a long time, do contribute nowadays to enriching the said spectra, especially during the ongoing crisis imposed upon Syria.  An invitation was even addressed by the Syrian Minister of Information, Mr.Omran al-Zou'bi, to national opposition figures as to have their say heard aloud. Most of the Syrians nowadays are in waiting for their Syrian TV main news broadcast at 8:30 p.m., which starts with the newly-introduced brief political analysis. Such a far-sighted deep analysis raises optimism, courage, pride and awareness in most of the Syrians, given the heroic operations- some of which are being broadcasted live- by the heroes of the Syrian Arab Army against the foreign-backed mercenary terrorists. This is but the new Syrian media live coverage for events on the ground, where the brave colleagues stand shoulder to shoulder with army personnel in defence of the sacred homeland. Such coverage for the reality on the ground does make the Syrian media excel in the space. One here can't but to reiterate that such a coverage has instigated those involved in the crime being perpetrated against the Syrians to cut Syrian Satellites transmission.

The ongoing developments in Syrian Mass Media means can also be seen in the light of President Al-Assad's far-sighted vision for media role as has been clarified and reflected in his interview with Addounia TV on August 29, 2012. The work is ongoing, with persistence and determination, on enhancing the role of media means' investigating role as part of 'popular oversight' in Syria's national interest. The issues discussed and topics raised, considered until recently a taboo, if to say, or somehow forbidden, are being highlighted and fleshed out in a series of TV, radio programs, and written articles, offering some suggestions, at times solutions, to the concerned.

The unjust war waged against Syrians by foreign media means made the concerned throw their hats in the ring, standing up to the challenges imposed. Hopefully, the re- launching of the Syria Times would further contribute to shedding the more of light on the realities of everything Syrian, as to get closer to the aspired-for noble objectives. Truth, according to Minister al-Zou'bi, in statements to the Independent quoted by Robert Fisk, ''will no longer be a casualty'' and ''Nothing can be hidden. There is no justification to hide anything. People are used to the real facts now….Thus we don't want a lying media.'' Hopefully ,the Syria Times Editors can  say the truth in a simple, straight to the point and clear way as to help in exposing, encountering and foiling those who are so good at marketing their lies, not to mention those whose media outlets are but the partners in the shedding of Syrian blood with prior knowledge of many terrorist attacks against Syrians.

Yes-Sir- Tools, Masters and Slaves!

The underway 'international war' by the 'willing' among the world's greedy powers. mostly characterized by a colonialist past, not to mention, of course, the inhumane liquidation of  the indigenous red Indians and others, is but a further sinister objective as to weaken, if not to dismember a sovereign great country. These powers have been racing against time, using every possible way, means, and yes-sir- tools and slaves, in the interest of their objective- an illusive one- in tune with the wrongly long-sought-for Israeli and takfiri hegemony!

Syria's Deputy Foreign and Expatriates Minister, Dr. Fayssal al-Mikdad, declared. in an interview broadcast live by the Syrian Satellite TV on September the 6th,  that the Syrian people do know that the USA and the Zionist entity are the mastermind for the ongoing aggression against Syria, when ''the orders regarding the ongoing aggression are for Turkey, France, Britain and for some Gulf countries in support of the terrorist groups and organizations as to shed the blood of the Syrian people''!

Actually, and according to different readings and analyses, the United States, in so doing, is to be taken further more in the same snare! Still alive in memory the US failures in Somalia, Afghanistan, and in Iraq; where the sown seeds are being cultivated by the USA!  Sep.11th  is still a heinous terrorist crime targeting every real human worldwide. The terrorists who were recruited, trained and groomed up by the American Government agencies have been targeting the US soil. One here cannot but to wonder whether the US soil- tainted with red Indians' blood- is different from others' soil, baptized with the blood of freedom fighters and martyrs. The same goes for the Zionist entity. In the global village of today, nobody should think himself to be on the safe side, while others are strenuously working to restore their security and stability.

Foreign and Expatriates Minister Walid al-Moallem, On August 28th, 2012, in the Independent published interview with Robert Fisk, addressed the Europeans that their ''slogan about the welfare of the Syrian people when you are supporting 17 resolutions against the welfare of the Syrian people'' is not understood. Indeed, it is beyond comprehension when the Europeans claim to be concerned and care about Syrians, when their unjustified sanctions hit the majority of Syrians! The Europeans who have exploited many countries worldwide should pay the people of these countries compensations and not penalize them. It is from here that your current prosperity, apart from the prevailing economic and euro-zone crisis, started, and so is the case when it comes to religion, science, history, medicine, and alphabet, not to mention other currently matter of pride and achievement European characteristics. Actually, the European, particularly the French, British and German, consistent meddling in Syria's internal affairs and the European logistic support, even if it were to be 'non-lethal', to the armed terrorist groups is a further black spot in their history.    One can not but to wonder whether the Europeans have been trying to overcome their Euro-zone crisis selling their weapons and sophisticated technology at the expense of the Syrians, with the help of petro-dollars generosity!

The Europeans, at least those involved in the conspiracy against Syria, are before a moral duty as to answer the statement issued by Information Minister, OmranAl-Zou'bi, on September 3, 2012, during his open meeting with accredited journalists, that "On October 19th 2010, there was a meeting for the European Union's foreign ministers, The ministers asked European intelligence agencies for specific details in four weeks time to launch the campaign against Syria."

Even the answer is clear; a clarification is indeed needed, especially when it comes to the so-far uncovered large quantities of weapons, ammunition, and means of killing the Syrians.  

So if one of the reasons is, as Minister al-Zou'bi frankly stated, that your role is the '' shadow of the US role for decades, not only in politics, but also in the military and economic spheres'', why should not Europeans try but once to look after their interests with the secular forces of construction away from extremism and away from the US hegemony over their decisions. Extremism, for which Europe paid a heavy price and waged two world wars, is the real threat and risk for all.


It is aid that a ''friend in need is friend indeed'', but what about a brother! So far, the known of the reasons behind such a war of attrition against the Syrian Arab People by 'some Gulf countries' are unjust and silly! Indeed the majority of the Syrians is satisfied, happy and indeed takes pride in their leadership, model of life, tolerance, unity and coexistence. Why do these 'some gulf countries, want and spare no efforts to kill our people! The majority, including our children, is fed up, but never weaken and -nor will be defeated-, with your bloody war of attrition targeting every Syrian.
