I want you to cast your mind back to about a year and a half ago. It was at that time, that the world was introduced to one of the most iconic photos of recent years. I am of course referring to…
When this image hit, there was outrage all across the Western world. Suddenly, social media was flooded with people who had probably never even heard of Syria (let alone, the war that had been taking place there for about four years at that point), virtue signalling about how we needed to open up our borders and allow infinity people into our countries to live among us, so that something like this would never happen again. It didn’t seem to matter to these people that the child and his family were already safe and settled in Turkey, and the only reason they got on the boat in the first place, was because his father wanted to come to Europe to get dental work done, thus putting the child in this dangerous situation unnecessarily. No, we can’t blame the child’s selfish father for his death. It’s all Europe’s fault for having the audacity to control our borders, and not allowing infinity people to flood and overrun us from perfectly safe countries.
The dental work story was confirmed by the child’s aunt, in an interview with Sky News, as we can see in this video here.
Anyway, the Aunt made a media appearance again recently, and she had some pretty interesting comments to make, comments which more or less line up with things that I’ve already been saying.
The Western countries have done nothing to resolve the Syrian crisis, pursuing their false narrative instead, while the real situation in Syria stays underreported, the aunt of a Syrian refugee toddler who drowned in 2015 on his way to Europe told RT.
Or the fact that they may very well be committing fraud against their advertisers, by possibly using Chinese bots to artificially drive up traffic on their sites. Nevertheless, we should probably continue to trust them anyway, because they’re clearly very honest and trustworthy.
“Our country is being destroyed by outsiders,” said Tima Kurdi – a Syrian-born Canadian lawyer and the aunt of Aylan Kurdi, a three-year-old Syrian boy who died in September 2015 en route to the Greek island of Kos from Turkey – adding that “Western countries are not doing anything” about that.
Outsiders? But the media insisted that what is actually happening, is that the ordinary Syrian people are rising up against a tyrant who is brutally oppressing them. A tyrant, who is so brutal, yet was democratically re-elected in 2014, in a landslide victory, that had international observers present, who claim it was fair and transparent.
She said the death of her nephew became “a wake-up call to the world, a message from God, who told us [that] enough is enough,” adding that the Syrian people “were suffering for four years [at that time] and Syria was crying out to the world for help but nobody was hearing” to these pleas, as “there was not enough media coverage until” the picture of the body of her nephew washed ashore in Turkish resort city of Bodrum made global headlines.
That image prompted politicians in many Western countries to open their borders and take in refugees. However, “months later, they started to forget that image and just got back to their everyday business, but the suffering [of the Syrian people] continued,” Kurdi said.
Yeah, they opened up their borders alright. The problem though, is that they weren’t just opened to Syrians fleeing the war. They were opened up to pretty much the entirety of the Middle East, South Asia, and Africa, and this has caused all kinds of chaos in Europe.
She went on to say that the West not only did “nothing to end this terrible war,” but also conducted a “terrible” regime change policy in Syria that actually only made the situation even worse. The Western funding of the so-called moderate rebels only prolongs the suffering of the Syrian people, Kurdi stressed, adding that “there are no moderate rebels in Syria.”
There was no “also” about the attempted regime change. Getting rid of Assad was the sole reason that the US and its allies, had any interest in interfering in the war. They wanted to do this because Assad is one of Iran’s closest allies in the region, and thus, one of the greatest threats to Israel.
“When [Western governments] fund the ‘moderate’ rebels, their [aid] somehow eventually ends up in the hands of the most powerful groups on the ground, which are Al-Nusra Front and Islamic State [IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL],” she said.
It’s just an unlucky chance occurrence that “somehow”, the weapons intended for the non-existent “moderate rebels” always seems to end up in the hands of the terrorist groups that Assad and Russia are fighting against, and which the US also claims to be against (yet won’t cooperate with Russia and the Syrian government against them).
The military solution would never work in Syria, Kurdi said, and “we will just see more suffering and more people will die.” She added that she does not take any side in this conflict and supports neither Syrian President Bashar Assad nor the opposition, but she had talked to many Syrians who live in refugee camps in Turkey, and believes that the Western media coverage of the Syrian conflict is biased.
The Western media report that “only President Bashar [Assad] kills his own people,” she said, adding that this sounds absurd to the Syrians. “I want people to understand one thing: if President Assad wants to stay in power in his country, he has to fight for his country but he would not kill his own people as he needs their support.”
But…but… he’s clearly insane. Sure, he needs their support to maintain power, but clearly, he’s just brutally murdering his own citizens, because he’s an unfeeling monster, who takes a sadistic pleasure in murdering his own people for absolutely no reason.
Also, it doesn’t seem to matter if he’s killing them, because the Syrian people are all clearly stupid, seeing as they chose to re-elect him anyway. That narrative makes perfect sense, right?
The reports in the West on Syria “do not make sense,”
as “there is more than just the [Syrian] government and Russia there, there are many rebels, who are fighting and killing my people,” she said, adding that “nobody [in the West] reports about rape” committed by the rebels and stressing that those stories are “terrible.”
If I didn’t know better, I would start thinking that maybe the West has a biased agenda here, and are trying to demonise only one side in this conflict, while ignoring the atrocities committed by the other.
Tima Kurdi admitted that Assad’s forces “did hurt the Syrian people,” but did so unintentionally. She also stressed that Syria was “peaceful and safe” before the war.
EXCEPT FOR ALL THOSE TIMES THE BRUTAL MADMAN ASSAD WOULD BARREL BOMB HIS OWN PEOPLE FOR NO REASON!!!!
“Most Syrian people were just living their lives before the war and did not get involved in any politics,” she said, adding that “all kinds of religions” co-existed peacefully in Syria. “Sunni, Shia, Druze, Alawites, Christians – we all lived together and respected each other,” Kurdi, who was born and initially lived in Damascus, told RT, adding that “most Syrian people did not want to leave their homes” when the war came.
She then addressed the issue of the refugee crisis and said that the only way to stop it is to put an end to the war in Syria.
Ideally, that would be the case, but as I’ve said before, helping the Syrian people, was never the real motivation behind this push for “refugees” to enter Europe. It was just a convenient excuse to justify it to the public. As soon as the Syrian war ends, the powers that be, will just try to find some other excuse to justify the fact that millions of people from countries other than Syria are entering Europe, allegedly to escape the Syrian civil war.
“I encourage the governments of each country to help find a political solution and [to stop violence] in my country. Bring peace to Syria so that you won’t need to see those refugees anymore,” she told RT.
I can think of one political solution that might solve this problem.
Now of course, RT is funded by the Russian government, so it’s understandable that people might be hesitant to take any information they provide at face value (if only people were equally skeptical towards the likes of CNN, The Huffington Post, The New York Times, etc.). So rather than just taking the text at face value, here’s a video of the woman actually saying these things.
Hopefully, this war will be ended before long.
