Global Research TV: How the Syrian Chemical Weapons Videos Were Staged


In the wake of the Syrian chemical weapons attack, shocking footage of the victims of that attack were widely circulated in an effort to raise the ire of the public and spur support for military intervention.

Now, a new report on that footage finds troubling inconsistencies and manipulation with the video that calls the official narrative of the attack and its victims into question.

    In this video, Global Research present evidence that the footage of the victims of the chemical attack in Ghouta in Damascus was deliberately staged as propaganda by the Syrian rebels. There is an excerpt from footage, allegedly from the rebels, showing them gassing two rabbits as a demonstration that they also have chemical weapons. The video also argues that the footage of the attack’s victims shows their families seeing their bodies in different places, as if the event has been staged several times. This is entirely credible. One of the anti-Islam blogs showed how the Palestinians had staged footage of supposed attacks on them, in which people shown dead or injured in one video were seen walking about unharmed in other film shot a few minutes later. Unfortunately, the only people who are likely to take this new information on board are the anti-Islam blogs and organisations, not Mr and Mrs Joe and Jo Average, who really need to see it. Most controversially, this video argues that the victims of the gas were not Sunni rebels, but Alawite women and children, who were kidnapped and then gassed by the rebels to make this propaganda video. Now this is an extreme claim, which needs very careful investigation. If true, then the people Obama and Cameron are currently backing have committed a truly horrific atrocity. Again, the Islamist forces trained and backed by the Saudis are perfectly capable of it. Sunni rebel leaders have demanded the extermination of the Alawites. Whole Christian villages have been forced from their homes, and many of their members martyred by the Jihadis. Remember: according to the Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia, Shia Muslims are heretics that should be exterminated. As an extremely heretical form of Islam, this prohibition would also affect the Alawites. And if the victims in this video were indeed Alawites, and their bodies used for propaganda, then by using it to demand our intervention in Syria Obama, Kerry, Cameron and Hollande have become complicit in a war crime comparable to the My Lai massacre in Vietnam.
