Russia: Douma Open to Press, Says Trump/May Lied

Fighting the US Censorship Blockade

Editor’s note:  Theresa  May admits her intelligence on Syria came from the same social media that helped hack the Brexit vote and US election, now a project we are told headed by John Bolton who is replacing Steve Bannon as “Goebbels” to Trump’s Hitler. Does this make May “Mussolini?” … Gordon Duff
[ Editor’s note 2: See how Macron got nailed with some on that Institutionalized resistance leadership I have been talking about. The cameras got him in profile with these EU Parliament protests in a wide shot, knowing it would make the front page. Macron in going to bleed politically on this now, as he should, and so should May…Jim W. Dean ]

After speaking with eyewitnesses on the ground in Syria, even mainstream media are beginning to cast doubt on the West’s narrative of an alleged gas attack in Douma, as medics tell French, German and UK media it never happened.

Agence France-Presse (AFP), the world’s third largest news agency, and the Independent, a British online newspaper, have each published stories that question whether chlorine or any other chemical was used against Syrians in Eastern Ghouta on April 7.

In a French language video report, AFP spoke with Marwan Jaber, a medical student who witnessed the aftermath of the alleged attack.

“Some of [the victims] suffered from asthma and pulmonary inflammation. They received routine treatment and some were even sent home,” Jaber told AFP. “They showed no symptoms of a chemical attack. But some foreigners entered while we were in a state of chaos and sprinkled people with water, and some of them were even filming it.

‘Oxygen starvation, not gas’: Veteran UK reporter Fisk doubts MSM narrative on Douma ‘chem attack’

Jaber’s testimony is consistent with claims made by a Douma doctor who spoke with veteran UK journalist Robert Fisk. Although Dr. Assim Rahaibani did not personally witness what happened in the medical clinic, he said that “all the doctors” he works with “know what happened.”

According to Rahaibani, intense shelling had created dust clouds that seeped into the basements and cellars where people lived. “People began to arrive here suffering from hypoxia, oxygen loss. Then someone at the door, a ‘White Helmet’, shouted ‘Gas!’, and a panic began. People started throwing water over each other. Yes, the video was filmed here, it is genuine, but what you see are people suffering from hypoxia – not gas poisoning.”

Writing in the Independent, Fisk noted that locals he spoke with “never believed in” the gas attack stories – and that tales of President Bashar Assad’s chemical atrocities had been spread by armed Islamist groups who had imprisoned and enslaved thousands of people in Ghouta before the town was liberated by Syrian forces in April.

Meanwhile, a report aired by the German RTL Group-owned channel n-tv says it’s unclear whether the attack took place at all, given that most of the locals told them on camera they didn’t smell any chemicals at all, one local told them he remembers a “weird smell” and was fine after a glass of water, and one man, who didn’t want to show his face, insisted there was a “smell of chlorine.”

However, a local doctor told the channel: “Saturday, a week ago, we treated people with breathing problems, but chlorine or gas poisoning – no, those are different symptoms.”

All of these stories published by different outlets corroborate testimony from two men who appeared in the “gas attack” footage spread far and wide by western media and governments. Interviewed by the Russian military, the two men said they were unknowing accomplices in the gas attack ruse.

“We were working and did not pay attention to who was filming us,” the first eyewitness said. “They were filming us, and then a man came in and started screaming that this was a chemical attack…People got scared and started spraying each other with water and using inhalers. Doctors told us that there was no chemical poisoning.”

Doctors and medical workers questioned by the Russian Center for Reconciliation confirmed that there had been no reports of patients suffering from chemical poisoning in Douma during the timeframe of the alleged gas attack.

The French and British media reports seem to contradict statements made by Paris and London, which have both stated unequivocally that the chemical attack did take place – and that Assad was responsible.

French President Emmanuel Macron said before Saturday’s missile strike against Syria that he had proof that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad had used chlorine to attack civilians in a militant-held enclave of Eastern Ghouta.

For her part, British Prime Minister Theresa May insisted that a “significant body of information including intelligence indicates the Syrian Regime is responsible for this latest attack.”

  1. 3 countries, 3 protests against unilateral military decisions. And meanwhile, the “arguably” most powerful chair of authority is being challenged face to face, by the “perceived’ lowest of low stationed.
    Stormy Daniels is a time stamp. It’s a clump. Just like the 3 ‘clients” are a clump. The rule of 3’s.

    War is no longer acceptable. The pace of the awakening has surpassed the well laid plans. There’s a tightening.

  2. How do you know no-one hacked the Brexit vote? What about the Scottish referendum? We simply can’t be sure of any recent election result. What if Brexit isn’t about Britain’s future at all and is just a ploy to further weaken and destabilise Europe?

  3. See the videos here and judge for yourself. It’s all too obvious what really went on in Syria on Friday evening:

    Beside the ever growing evidence, that again a high ranking PR firm was tasked with this propaganda campaign (, it should also be of interest to anybody to know if Mrs. May might have some form of personal interest in this bombing, because her husband plays a significant role in the British BAE corporation.

    • I forgot the last link:

      Because of a total meda shutdown over anything about France here in Germany and from what I get from some open sources, Macron will face some serious allegations. His unconstitutional bombing of Syria will not get unnoticed despite the total media block. You can smell here already their fear of getting out of control, allthough it might look normal from the outside.

      As also shown in the above video, something is already underway all over Europe. And this time, England and France are in the center.

      What’s saddening to note is the fact that Israel again succeeded to go under the radar again with their massive killings and shootings in Ghaza. We will not forget it!

    • If the men act poorly it disgraces the men and their leader. If the leader acts poorly, it does not disgrace the men. The stars are supposed to be earned.
