"Many people are hiding their heads in the sand, obediently repeating the official Western narrative, while others are gradually resorting to... alternative sources of information"
"The recent opportunistic statements by certain badly informed and biased Western 'progressive' intellectuals, calling the Syrian system "disgraceful" has confused things even further."
"there is very little support among the [regional] general population as well as among the intellectuals, for the Western assaults on the country, conducted directly, and indirectly by proxies"
"ask the thinkers from all over the region, and the reaction is near unanimously against the assaults that are being conducted by the West."
"In Latin America, Russia, China, much of Africa and of course in the neighboring Iran, people are beginning to see clearly both the pattern and predictability of the Western foreign policy."
"What is now clearly detectable in the region is not just a condemnation of the US and Western actions, it is also a deep fatigue of having to endure the same type aggression which brings absolutely nothing except misery"
