Germany’s AFD party demands end of EU sanctions against Syria

The German Member of parliament Dr. Christian Blex and other members of the Alternative for Germany (AfD) have passed two resolutions which demand an end of the EU-sanctions against Syria and condemn western air strikes, according to a press release obtained by the Syriatimes e-newspaper.

“We demand Germany be no longer complicit in the sanctions, which are an instrument of power against the current government”, the first resolution passed at the party convention in Augsburg reads. “A prolongation of the suffering of the Syrian people is incompatible with AfD-principles and not in the German national interest.”

The submitter Dr. Christian Blex, Member of Parliament of North Rine-Westphalia, said to delegates: “I ask you to put my proposal on the order of business, so the public can learn that the sanctions chronically threaten the health care system of Syria’s lower- and middle class.

US political analyst to ST: Victories of Syrian Army and allies turned the tide against Israeli, Saudi, US puppets

The US geopolitical analyst Dean Henderson has underscored that the victories being achieved by Syrian Army and allies in fighting terrorism have turned the tide against Israel /Saudi/GCC puppets and the Rothschild/Rockefeller sponsors. 

He told the Syriatimes e-newspaper: “The balance of power has already shifted in a good way and the momentum is on the side of justice,” Henderson said, indicating that the survival of the City of London crowd depends on keeping the US President Donald Trump on their leash and divide the US from Russia and China,” Henderson said. 

Canadian political analyst to ST: U.S. to continue to use White Helmets as long as general domestic population accept war lies

U.S. policymakers will go ahead with using not only the White Helmets but also the false flag chemical weapons events in Syria for as long as broad-based domestic populations accept the war lies and the engineered deceptions, the Canadian political analyst and Research Associate at Global Research Mark Taliano told the Syriatimes e-newspaper.

The analyst asserted that U.S. policymakers support al Qaeda in Syria, and the White Helmets are al Qaeda auxiliaries, so it makes sense that the U.S. which seeks global control, would continue to support them.

But he pointed out that the US aspirations are being frustrated on Syrian soil.

Slovak politician to ST: Situation in Syria is completely different to what MSM portray


The Slovak politician Marian Kotleba has affirmed that the situation in Syria is completely different to what the Slovak and European mainstream media outlets try to portray. He has also regretted the subjection of the vast majority of his country’s politicians to the US and Israeli masters.

In an interview with the Syriatimes e-newspaper, the leader of the People’s Party Our Slovakia (Ľudová strana Naše Slovensko), who visited Syria in June for the first time, said that he has been amazed at how positive life in contemporary Syria is.

“Before our departure to Syria, we did not know what was waiting for us there. We were worried as information available in Slovakia and in Europe say that Syria is at war. Even the Ministry of Slovak Republic has issued ‘do not travel’ warning for Slovak citizens to Syria in anyway. But we overcame all these concerns and we came to Syria. After arriving from Beirut to Damascus, we have been really surprised at how positive life in contemporary Syria is and how Muslims and Christians are living together, “said Kotleba, who came to Syria with a European delegation composed of politicians from Belgium, Slovakia and Croatia.  

MP. Nora Arissian to ST: US must be held to account for its war crimes in Syria

The United States should not be within the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) and it should be held to account for its crimes in Syria, the Syrian Member of Parliament Dr. Nora Arissian told the Syriatimes e-newspaper Thursday.

The MP made it clear that the main reason for the US withdrawal from the UNHRC,  is Washington’s loyalty to Israel and its interests.

“The US Administration could not take UNHRC criticism of Israel’s savage practices against unarmed civilians and its violation of human rights. Therefore, it withdrew from the council,” Dr. Arissian said, adding that when the United States fails to have hegemony over any organization in the United Nations, it withdraws from it.

 She referred to the US withdrawal from the UNESCO and the Paris Climate Agreement.

“I think, the US withdrawal from the UNHRC won’t have big effect on the work of the council whose mission has been limited to certain issues and not to actually protect human rights. the parliamentarian said.

UN organizations’ decline

She asserted that the continuity of war crimes being perpetrated by the US-led Coalition against humanity and Syrian people prove the decline of UN organizations in applying international law and UN Charter’s principles.

“In fact, the United States should not be within the UNHRC and it should be held to account for its crimes in Syria,” Dr. Arissian affirmed, pointing out that the Syrian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates has repeatedly called on the UN to shoulder its responsibility towards protecting international security and peace.

The MP concluded by saying: “ The US withdrawal from UNHRC is indicative of Washington’s weakness and its rejection of multilateralism…This is Trump’s policy…The US policy contradicts international law.”
