About Us

This site archives news & opinion articles, videos, and images related to the proxy war on Syria. The site was created in 2011 (previously, handsoffsyria.blogspot.com) and has been being maintained since then.

  • We are in solidarity with a nation fighting against imperialist provocation, intervention, demonization and cruelest sanctions since 2011.

  • We believe only the people of Syria have the right to determine who commands the Syrian state. The people of Syria should be left to determine their own future.

  • Nothing could be more harmful to the people of Syria than an intervention of any kind. US & NATO's Illegal wars on Iraq, Afghanistan, and Libya are ENOUGH to demonstrate how these powers destroy countries, take their society hundreds of years back in time..

Although every war makes ample use of lies and deception, the dirty war on Syria has relied on a level of mass disinformation not seen in living memory. The British-Australian journalist Philip Knightley pointed out that war propaganda typically involves ‘a depressingly predictable pattern’ of demonising the enemy leader, then demonising the enemy people through atrocity stories, real or imagined (Knightley 2001). Accordingly, a mild-mannered eye doctor called Bashar al Assad became the new evil in the world and, according to consistent western media reports, the Syrian Army did nothing but kill civilians for more than four years. To this day, many imagine the Syrian conflict is a ‘civil war’, a ‘popular revolt’ or some sort of internal sectarian conflict. These myths are, in many respects, a substantial achievement for the big powers which have driven a series of ‘regime change’ operations in the Middle East region, all on false pretexts, over the past 15 years.
