Today, this Facebook feed cited an article from SANA, The Syrian Arab News Agency, about the recent bombing of top Assad administration officials in Damascus. They claim that U.S. and Israeli terrorists were the cause of the attack. However, there is NO mention anywhere in the source article from SANA of who claimed responsibility for the attack, and when queried, Global Public Alert refuses to provide any, instead citing a mass-media conspiracy as the reason for their lack of information. However, The Washington Post, BBC News, The Telegraph, Al-Jazeera, AND the New York times all report that the responsibility for the attack was claimed by two groups: The Brigade Of Islam, and The Free Syrian Army, neither of which are Jewish, and certainly NOT American. The claims this website makes are FALSE and their evidence is bullshit. Absence of evidence is NOT evidence of absence, and these people are no better than Fox News at telling you what to believe on one hand and calling you a free thinker on the other.
There are plenty of real problems in our world that demand urgent attention, and this sort of manufactured controversy does nothing more than stir the shit and make bigots like these feel important, by generating conflict where none existed. This shameless display of anti-Zionist fearmongering does more harm than it could ever possibly do good.
Here are two articles from Al-Jazeera and The Telegraph where you can find some accurate information regarding the attack:
