Everyone remembers the boy Omran Daqneesh, who in the West became the main “symbol of the suffering of Aleppo”. The photos of the child in blood and dust were published on the front pages by all leading newspapers of the world, the efforts of Western television companies (primarily CNN) were then referred to this picture by all those “hawks” who substantiated the need for missile strikes on the “bloody regime of Assad” and new sanctions against Russia.
When Aleppo was completely released, it became clear that the story of the boy’s wounding was another production of the scandalous organization of volunteers “White Helmets”, funded by the governments of several Western countries, and the Omran family thanked Russia and Assad for the city’s liberation from terrorists. But many people who cried over the photo of the bloodied boy did not even know about it – the very media that took out Omran’s photo on the front pages, or reported that the family of the injured child gives confessions at gunpoints, or even chose not to say anything or anything about it write.
In Syria, they talked about the preparation of the US staged chemistry.
But all the people gradually get closer to the truth. Recently, a delegation of Christian preachers and activists who visited Syria returned to Britain to help local Christian communities. They also met with the Omran family, having listened to their history without any automatic weapons or torture.
The other day, this mission, led by a member of the House of Lords, Baroness Cox and the priest of the Anglican Church, Andrew Ashdown, met with students from the London University of SOAS (School of Oriental and African Studies). This caused great resonance, and the British press could not pretend that it did not notice anything. However, it took the Times newspaper several days to publish the report, by itself, far from the front pages.
The Anglican priest Ashdown told the students about the suffering of this boy Omran. During the explosion, he was wounded in the head, bleeding. Representatives of the White Helms “put him in an ambulance and forced to sit there for 40 minutes while they were photographing him.” “His father was angry,” the priest claims, “but he could not intervene because they were militants.”
Baroness Cox, known for her work in support of the Anglican Church, pointed out to the audience that the main sponsor of White Helmets is official London. “The money of your taxpayers,” she said, “goes to the maintenance of groups that are uniquely related to jihadists.”
Russian viewers and readers all know this, they saw an interview with the Omran family immediately after the liberation of Aleppo. And for many Englishmen who use the information of their mainstream media, this has become a real revelation.
It would seem that the British media should ask the question: if the story of the “boy from Aleppo” was a brutal staging of the White Helmet militants, then the “gas attack” in the Syrian Douma is also a performance, as Moscow and Damascus repeatedly stated? But so far The Times and other Western media (many of them also preferred “not to notice” the revelations of Ashdown) can not go. After all, then everyone will have to admit their lies and the absolute groundlessness of missile strikes against Syria, which were hotly supported by the British media.
The scheme is simple: any unconfirmed rumor accusing Moscow of any “evil deeds” is carried out on the front page and massed. But when it comes to its exposure, the media prefer to ignore it. For example, in Kiev last week, a verdict was read in the defendant’s case of an assassination attempt against militants Adam Osmayev and Amina Okueva, committed in June 2017. Then, and especially after the repeated assassination attempt on them, which led to the death of Okueva, the Western newspapers carried the news about “Russia’s involvement” to the front pages, everyone was roaring about this and everywhere.
Do you think anyone was interested in the statement of Ukrainian prosecutors that “the Russian trace” is not found? Nobody paid attention to this. Otherwise, we would have to admit our own lies and expose colorful stories about how Putin in Kiev “created the metropolis of assassins.”
That’s why they are trying to prohibit RT in the Western countries, so that the viewer does not come across information about the boy Omran or assassination in Kiev. That is why Ashdown is being criticized, who is trying to convey the truth about the events in Syria.
