Houla Massacre Victims 'Were Supporters of Syrian Government'

A UN spokesman refused to confirm that the Houla victims were killed by Syrian government forces.

(LONDON) - BBC's Newsnight last night interviewed a London based Syrian businessman who stated that the families murdered by terrorists in Houla were supporters of the Syrian government, not the opposition.

If correct this would make it highly unlikely that the narrative pushed by the mainstream media is true, and suggests the opposite is the case: the atrocity was committed not by the Assad regime but by the insurgents, supported by NATO, Al Qaeda and the gulf arab dictators, and reported to be covertly armed by Turkey's Muslim Brotherhood linked government.

The official story of the Houla massacre has changed substantially since it first broke, with unconfirmed reports from insurgents (routinely described on the BBC as activists). Version one, corroborated by at least one BBC corespondent, had it that the victims were killed by heavy weapons of the Syrian army. Version two was that villagers had been randomly killed by militias sponsored by the Assad government. Version three, the current version, concedes that most of the victims came from a few extended families.

It should not be difficult to establish who the families were loyal to: the insurgents or the Syrian government. The Syrian businessman on Newsnight stated they were related to an MP elected in recent elections which the insurgents have boycotted.

It was not clear whether the information from the Syrian businessman was expected in this live TV show. The potential bombshell was ignored by hawkish presenter Gavin Essler and high profile warmonger Paul Wolfovitz, who demanded a military attack on Syria. A UN spokesman refused Essler's invitation to confirm that the Houla victims were killed by Syrian government forces.

If we now hear less and less about the massacre with no further details, many will conclude that the prima facie suspects for the atrocity are the insurgents, backed by NATO and the Gulf arab dictators, aided and abetted by the mainstream media, including the BBC. This would be a classic false flag terrorist atrocity. Ironically the Egyptian branch of the Muslim Bortherhood has denounced the 9/11 attacks as a false flag atrocity organised by Israel or the CIA.

In one way this would be good news: there are no logistical reasons why these people cannot be arrested, prosecuted and tried. It is established in international law that propaganda on behalf of war criminals is in itself a war crime. The fact that no-one would expect this to happen is testimony to the tacit acceptance that NATO governments and media have no real interest in human rights.

Ian's project Reinvestigate 9/11, which can be visited online here:, provides a window into the story of modern America; a country that leads media-fueled, violent wars in the Middle east over perceptions of terrorism on its own soil. However those who spend time with the subject, quickly discover that the impossible tale of Arab hijackers is indeed dubious at best. It simply does not stand up.

Ian says, "We will support any new investigation of the 9/11 attacks so long as
*it is run by uncompromised people with a range of opinion including those inclined to disbelieve the official 9/11 story,
*it follows the evidence wherever it leads
if it takes place in the US to be credible it will need
*full legal authority to demand immediate access to any evidence and any witness it chooses
*the resources it requires to carry out its investigation

It's easy to see syrian revolution is armed and fueled by the occident, through its partners in the region. It's easy to see the real ultimate goal is Iran and its oil. It's easy to see how western media manipulates it all. C'est facille a voir que la révolution syrienne est armée et propelée par l'occident, a l'aide des pays aliés de la région. C'est facille a voir que le but final c'est l'Iran et son petrôle. C'est facille a voir comme les média occidentaux y manipulent cette histoire. Es facil ver como la revolución síria es armada y impulsada por el occidente, a traves de sus aliados en la región. Es facil de ver que la meta última es Iran y su petroleo. Es facil de ver cómo los medios occidentales manipulan este tema.
