Yet Another Horrifying Amateur Video From Syria Of Fsa Atrocities Emerges Online

category international | anti-war / imperialism | other press author Saturday November 10, 2012 22:04author by serf Report this post to the editors

A horrifying amateur video from Syria emerged online, showing an apparent mass execution of Assad supporters in Aleppo at the hands of rebels from the Free Syria Army.
The footage shows several bloodied men stripped down to their underwear being forced to kneel by a wall amidst a throng of excited, machine gun-touting men.
Once their captors open fire, the camera jerks away as the crowd momentarily disperses, seemingly unprepared for the nearly 40 seconds of uninterrupted shooting that follows. As the gunfire dies down, shouts of “Allahu Akbar!” resound as the once skittish onlookers victoriously raise their guns in the air, approaching what appears to be a pile of stripped-down corpses.

Al Qaeda/Taliban-style "Virtue Police" Show up Along NATO Protected Turkish-Syrian Border

First of the photos below shows a pair of Getty images created on November 21, 2012 depicting masked, armed terrorists atop a building with the words "Committee for Promotion of Virtues and Prevention of Vice" scrawled across its facade. The images were taken in al-Bab, northern Syria.

The accompanying captions provided by AFP run roughshod over the intelligence of potential readers, claiming the "Committee for Promotion of Virtues and Prevention of Vice" is actually aimed only at "FSA" fighters, and seeks to "fight abuses and crimes committed by members of the Free Syrian Army."

    A Syrian member of the Committee for Promotion of Virtues and Prevention of Vice gestures near a freshly painted wall reading 'Glory to God' at their headquarters in al-Bab, northern Syria, on November 21, 2012. The committee was created to fight abuses and crimes committed by members of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) only, and has 80 elements recruited outside the FSA. The rebels faced growing criticism, particularly after a video was posted on YouTube earlier in November, appearing to show opposition fighters beating and executing soldiers after attacks. ""

The image ion the right-hand-side can be viewed @ getty-Images here -

In a news story from Friday, 23 November 2012, titled Syria condemns Turkey's defence missile request -
RTE used a photo from Getty Images to illustrate the piece. They gave this photo the caption:
    "Syrian rebels have taken over military installations in the north and centre of the country"

The 2nd image below shows a screencap of RTE mislabelling the photo and misrepresenting events in Syria

In reality, the West and its media agencies, including RTE, are continuing to bury a premeditated US-Israeli-Saudi plan to fund and arm sectarian extremists to overrun Syria.
