Madaya, which has been a mainstream media focus, is a Sunni Muslim town. The Syrian 'rebels' (terrorists) are exclusively Sunni, as is the Syrian Opposition (Syrian National Coalition), which Washington recognizes as the legitimate government of Syria. In fact, the SNC are a Muslim Brotherhood group.

By focusing on Madaya, the media portrays the Syrian government as anti-Sunni, fueling sectarian hatred, which further fuels the civil war. The goal of Saudi Arabia and the US is to divide the Sunni and Shia and have the Christians leave the Middle East for good.

The MSM does not report on Alawite towns and villages which are also under siege, suffering the same as Madaya. Why is the media coverage so unbalanced? Because it is counter-productive for them to inform the world that the Syrian rebels, the US supported terrorists, starve and torture minorities all across Syria. They don't want you to see that. They want to focus your attention on places where they can demonize the Syrian government.

Here are the facts: Madaya has been under siege by the Syrian government because the terrorists have entrenched themselves in residential neighborhoods. They picked a Sunni town hoping to get support among the people. But the people hate them because they stole everything that wan't nailed down. The terrorists took all the money, gold and food from the residents. Every time food was delivered to the area, the terrorists took all of it, and the residents starve. It works to the terrorists' benefit to show starving residents. They can blame it all on the government. Aid and food and medicines have been delivered in the past many times, but everything was confiscated by the terrorists. The same thing happened in the Old City of Homs.

In the North there are several Alawite villages, and even some Shite villages, which were occupied by terrorists, who refused any aid or food going to the people, saying it was in retaliation for Madaya. But the MSM will not tell you about that.

The bottom line is that every government must fight terrorists who are harming civilians. And when they do so, inevitably there is collateral damage among innocent civilians. This is what happened in Madaya.

Meanwhile, here on the coast we continue to enjoy safety, calm, and a near normal life. When you watch TV, it looks like Syria is a real mess. However, you can drive to Damascus and go shopping, stay in Hotels, go to the University, go to nightclubs and parties. The same is true in Homs and Latakia. There are areas in Aleppo which are under government control and are operating normally, but they have almost no electricity.

Watch for the next Geneva peace meeting soon. Something may happen which could benefit Syria.
