COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE IN THE INDEPENDENT

Inside Assad’s prisons: Horrors facing female inmates in Syrian jails revealed

You failed to properly label the source of this utterly ridiculous article.

It should read: “article courtesy of Israel’s Ministry of Truth.”

Assad is liked by most Syrians. He is a strong proponent of religious liberty in a part of the world where that is not common. He has the support of the country’s many Christians.

None of those statements can be made about the government of Israel.

One really has to ask why The Independent could not show better judgment than publishing such stuff.

There is an old journalistic principle regularly ignored by the corporate press today: the bigger the claim in a story, the better scrutinized it needs to be.

Israel’s government goes by the old big lie theory, tell a story loudly enough and often enough, and many will believe it.

The theory comes straight from Joseph Goebbels, and Israel is, without a doubt, its biggest proponent today.
