Numerous labels apply: Parallel Left, Imperial Left, Fake Left. Whichever label is used, however, the reality remains that people and agencies who posture as “Left” or “Progressive” on one hand, and support terrorism and illegal warfare on the other, are neither Left, Progressive, nor forward looking. They represent anti-Life embracing trajectories, and they are arguably more dangerous than the Right. In fact, their disguised ideology intersects with the war-mongering “Right”.
Just like the warmongers and fascists, they embrace the ridiculous notion that war is somehow “humanitarian”, that al Qaeda and ISIS are “rebels”, that non-existent “moderate” terrorists exist, and that the dirty war on Syria is a “civil” war.
The Fake Left embraces taboos. False flags are “conspiracy theories” so they could never happen at home or abroad. NGO’s are credible sources and not fronts for intelligence agencies, nor do they receive government funding according to the Parallel Left. The White Helmets must be legitimate since they won an Oscar, and Hollywood never lies.
When Democracy Now or other sources that represent “controlled opposition” interview pro-regime- change people, and omit evidence-based sources, and credible sources who have actually been to Syria and studied the war in context,the Fake Left accepts the omissions, which amount to Big Lies. For the parallel Left, the Lie has become the Truth. The Fake Left denounces the Establishment and the deep state, but is (unwittingly?) the strongest cheerleader for both, since its“opposition” disguises its support.
Democracy Now poses as Left and progressive but it supports ISIS and al Qaeda when it presents lies about Syria as the truth, because the opposition to the Syrian government is ISIS and al Qaeda.
Democracy Now amplifies evidence-free (war-mongering) narratives about the war on Syria, even as it exclude evidence-based (peace-making) narratives. Reportedly, Democracy Now chose not to interview Vanessa Beeley, who is an expert on the White Helmets, but did interview Anand Gopal, who demonstrates support for the war on Syria. Similarly, at the time of this writing, Democracy Now has failed to report on Seymour Hersh’s recent revelations – involving military and intelligence transcripts of real-time communications – which disprove Washington’s stories about the alleged sarin gas attack at Khan Sheikhoun, in Idlib Province, Syria.
Hersh’s evidence-based conclusion? “Syria did not drop a sarin bomb that morning. It was known to everybody in the command. Period.” Omissions of studies such as Hersh’s amount to Big Lies that enable the wars of aggression and the terrorism, and the widespread death and poverty.
Democracy Now has received over $900,000 in grants from the Lannan Foundation alone, since 2014. It also receives monies from other foundations, and it is a profit-making organization, despite its non-profit status.
Similarly, any protest movement which is funded by foundations or fake NGOs is counter-productive. Controlled opposition, mentioned above, balkanizes broad-based protest movements.
Prof. Chossudovsky notes in “Rockefeller, Ford Foundations Behind World Social Forum (WSF). The Corporate Funding of Social Activism” for example, that the 2016 World Social Forum received funding from corporate foundations including Ford, Rockefeller, Tides, et al.
He notes that,
“there is an obvious contradiction: another world is not possible when the campaign against neoliberalism is financed by an alliance of corporate donors firmly committed to neoliberalism and the US-NATO military agenda.”
The Truth will set us free, but currently the West is enslaved by War Lies Inc.

Selected Articles: Criminal Israel Under the Spotlight
Pushed by its Zionist ambitions, Israel has been taking part in the global war OF terrorism. On the one hand, backing Washington with the notorious Saudi royal family, Israel has contributed to “collateral damage” in the Syrian “civil war” since at least 2014. On the other, it has continued its egregious criminal moves to displace Palestinians. See our selection of articles below to know: .
Al-Qaeda attacked a Syrian Arab Army position in Madinat al-Baath (map) next to the Israel occupied Golan heights. Al-Qaeda requested Israeli fire-support by launching some mortars towards empty space in the Israel occupied area. The Israeli Defense Force accepted the request and destroyed two Syrian Arab Army tanks. Two Syrian soldiers were killed. The SAA held steady and the al-Qaeda attack on its position failed.

Israel is likely in direct military talks with jihadist commanders in Quneitra province whom have now established a joint operations room for the ongoing border offensive against the Syrian Arab Army (SAA).

Israel wants to steal and occupy even larger parts of Syria than the parts of the Golan heights it illegally holds. It pays al-Qaeda and supports it by fire to achieve that. The main stream reporting on this is at least three years late. Why is it now starting to publish about this? Is there a new media advisory that Haaretz and the WSJ are now allowed (or required) to report on the issue? To what purpose?

Terrorist groups can’t exist without foreign support. Their tanks, rockets and other heavy weapons don’t materialize out of thin air. They’re supplied by America, NATO, Israel, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar.

In a press release, the organisation said the Israeli occupation’s moves against social, cultural, educational, relief, housing, legal or engineering institutions were political and go hand in hand with the Israeli policy of collective punishment against the defenseless Palestinian civilians in order to Judaise the city by force.

After the decision was announced, the Israeli air force sent 18 of its fighter jets, including F16I, F15CD and F16CD, along with two Gulfstream aircraft, two tanker airplanes and two C130 planes, special for electronic warfare, to Saudi Arabia at the demand of the new crown prince bin Salman to block his cousin (bin Nayef)’s possible measures.
