In 1973, the government of Syria removed all references to Islam as the religion of the state from their Constitution. It was at that time that the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood began their campaign to remove the secular government via violence, in order to form an Islamic Syria. They failed in their first massive attempt in 1982, but regrouped and waited for the next opportunity – which was 2011.
By the time you finish reading this Intel report, you will note that the Muslim Brotherhood continues to use the same modus operandi as they did in 1982:
that the “government” conducted massacres (when it was the ‘opposition’ who did it) and the spreading of propaganda that thousands of Syrian Army members defected – a very big lie.
From the beginning, the “Free Syrian Army” only consisted of a handful of Syrians (who were Muslim Brotherhood members), and the rest of the “Free Syrian Army” were mercenary fighters from various countries. This was propaganda at its finest to fool the west into thinking the Syrian people backed the “rebellion”.
As this Intel report states, it was during the 1980’s that “a sophisticated worldwide propaganda campaign was launched supporting the rebellion and emphasizing its victories and wholesale desertion of Army units to the rebel side.”
I have wondered for years how mainstream media became such liars for the Muslim Brotherhood. And also, how the alleged “massacres” supposedly conducted by the Syrian government in the 1980’s could have possibly happened when all witnesses living in Syria at the time state that this was untrue.
Sadly, today on Wikipedia and all sources you find on the Internet state that “between 30,000 – 40,000 civilians were killed by the Syrian government”. Yet, all of the factual reports, including this report in 1982 by US Intel, proves this to be a lie. It was propaganda.
