BBC Caught Recycling Old Footage to Create More Humanitarian Mythology for Madaya, Syria

Vanessa Beeley
21st Century Wire

Since the story of the Madaya “starvation” story broke seemingly hours after the Saudi lawless and brutal execution of inspirational opposition speaker and cleric Sheikh Nimr al Nimr, we have been presented with a ceaseless array of fake images many of which have been corrected or withdrawn by the offending mainstream media outlets but then relentlessly and brazenly recycled, regardless, by the social media propaganda rings.

However the cherry on the propaganda cake came tonight with a report from the BBC on the plight of the town of Madaya, Syria.  Not only do they try to conceal the fact that civilians are arguing with Ahrar al Sham terrorists and yelling at them:

You are not hungry, we are!!”

… but the paragon on international news reporting has also falsified elements of its reporting in order to achieve the dramatic effect it felt it needs to sell western interventionalist foreign policy for Syria.

The BBC uses the ambiguous and misleading term “fighter” instead of clearly specifying the civilians are referring to Ahrar al Sham militants who are occupying Madaya.  Or one of their associates from Al Nusra or the FSA [less than 10% of the rebel contingent in Madaya].

Even more shockingly the BBC then went on to use footage from Yarmouk 2014 and described the boy in this footage as being in Madaya just after the October 19th 2015 food delivery from the Red Cross.

The boy comes into the film at 0:50 in the BBC Madaya footage posted on January 11, 2016. Watch:

    The NEOCON-Israeli Operatives are the responsible ones for every death and starvation there and in Ukraine, Libya, Iraq, Yemen. The agents of SATAN must be FUMIGATED.
