Ahmadinejad: “World must condemn killing of Press TV reporter, Maya Nasser, in Syria”

Press TV correspondent in Damascus, Maya Naser, who was killed in a terrorist attack on September 26, 2012

 

Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has called on the international community to condemn the assassination of a Press TV correspondent in Syria.

“I do hope that such an event will not be repeated anywhere in the world and I do hope that all, without paying attention to the personal preferences, will come to condemn such events,” President Ahmadinejad said in a press conference following his speech at the 67th session of the UN General Assembly in New York on Wednesday.

Insurgents in the Syrian capital of Damascus attacked Press TV staff, killing the Iranian English-language news network’s correspondent, Maya Naser, and injuring Press TV and Al-Alam Damascus Bureau Chief Hosein Mortada, on Wednesday.

Naser was shot and killed by a sniper, while Mortada, a Lebanese national, was shot and wounded in the back.

The two were covering twin bomb blasts, which targeted the military command building in the Syrian capital and killed at least four Syrian security forces.

The Iranian president expressed his sincere condolences over the death of the Press TV correspondent and called on everyone to respect the sanctity of reporters.

He said that reporting is a very important tool which sheds light on realities and informs the international community about events that happen in faraway places.

Iran’s Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast on Wednesday strongly condemned the latest terrorist attacks in Syria, which led to Naser’s death.

“The mass media are working in the most difficult circumstances to reflect the realities and truth to the public opinion, and recourse to violence and terrorism can never prevent Syria’s realities from being revealed to people,” he said.

Born on July 30, 1979 in Syria, Maya Naser had studied political science, was fluent in Arabic and English and had worked in many countries including the US, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Egypt and Bahrain.

Syria has been the scene of deadly unrest since mid-March, 2011 and many people, including large numbers of army and security personnel, have been killed in the violence.

The Syrian government says that the chaos is being orchestrated from outside the country, and there are reports that a large number of the insurgents are foreign nationals.  Continue reading

Britain and US plan a Syrian revolution from an innocuous office block in Istanbul

 

[Editor’s note: We are not posting this article to spread western propaganda about how US-Britain are willing to help the Syrian opposition in their “legitimate fight” againt Bashar Al Assad. We perfectly know that what the West wants, is a splitted Syria. Hence, a weak Syria. Plus, as already reported, the SNC is not “legitimate” oppisition but a western backed opposition, with absolutely no legitimacy whatsoever.  We’re just posting this article to show, once more, that foreign meddling is blatant. In total violation of the UN Charter & International law. ]

An underground network of Syrian opposition activists is receiving training and supplies of vital equipment from a combined American and British effort to forge an effective alternative to the Damascus regime.

By , Istanbul

Dozens of dissidents have been ferried out of Syria to be vetted for foreign backing. Recipients of the aid are given satellite communications and computers so that they can act as a local “hub” linking local activists and the outside world.

The training takes place in an Istanbul district where handsome apartment blocks line the steep slopes and rooftop terraces boast views over the Golden Horn waterway. Continue reading

What’s behind the U.S. based “Syrian Support Group” ?

Logo of the US Department funded “Syrian Support Group”

By MKERone (Co-Founder of CounterPsyOps)

In a recent Russia Today video, we learn that the “Syrian Support Group” received a waiver from the US treasury department authorizing it to provide financial and logistical help to the so called Free Syrian Army.

Let’s have a closer look at this mysterious group…

1. The SSG has “received a license from the U.S. Department of Treasury Office of Foreign Asset Control (“OFAC”) that permits the organization to raise funds and provide certain services to the Free Syrian Army (the “FSA”)“.

That basically means that this Group has the right to take its own decisions and doesn’t need to go through Congress nor any official institution prior taking action. A very important question arises: what does “Certain services” mean? The general public is clearly not being told to what extent & how its tax money is being used for. Is the SSG talking about communication equipment? Heavy Artillery? Targeted assassinations? No one knows. Not even those paying for it: the US tax payers through the U.S. Department of Treasury Office of Foreign Asset Control.

2. In the FAQ section, we can also read “SGG is a U.S.-based nonprofit organization formed to support the establishment of a free, independent and democratic Syria. Towards that end, it seeks to facilitate, through all legal means, the protection of Syrian civilians during their historic struggle for freedom against the Assad regime”

“Legal means” ? The SSG is blatantly admitting that it funds and provides “certain services” to the so called Free Syrian Army. Which is a clear violation of the UN Charter and UN resolution A/RES/56/154 which states: “6. Calls upon all States to refrain from financing political parties or other organizations in any other State in a way that is contrary to the principles of the Charter and that undermines the legitimacy of its electoral processes”

I strongly recommend you to go to the SSG website and look through it by yourself. Though, the previous examples should be enough for the people to understand what the SSG is. It is a so called “Nonprofit organization” totally and hiddenly controlled by the government enabling it to do whatever it wants with no risk of being held accountable. On top of that, the SSG enables people to make donations. Hence, if anything leaks, who would be to blame? Not the government. Because the SSG actions are based on people and corporations donations.
