The pretence that Bana’s family are anything other than extremist criminals is a fantasy belonging to a JK Rowling storyline.
Of course, this isn’t the fault of the child called Bana, it is her family and critics of Bashar al Assad that are effectively abusing her. The media have not admitted that her family practically lived next door to an extremist base, hence the constant danger she was in. Neither have they shown the numerous images of her father posing with guns and his terrorist friends.
Instead of being exposed by the media as the deception the ‘Bana’ story clearly is, they have actually helped to spread the lie that her family are innocent victims of a brutal regime when in fact they are a part of a violent insurrection, financed by the enemies of Syria and supported by thousands of mercenaries posing as humble religious foot soldiers. The depths to which the Western media will stoop to create the devil known as Assad, knows no limits.
There are countless examples of the mainstream media merely repeating the government line both here in the UK and the US. The persistent attacks on Assad and his allies are ridiculed by anyone with an inquisitive mind. The evidence of outside interference and particularly the Israeli efforts to partition Syria into small and militarily weak enclaves, is overwhelming.
This is where the aims of Bana’s family and JK Rowling coincide. The so called ‘rebels’ are supported wherever possible by Israel and Rowling is a staunch supporter of Israel. These people don’t mind how many innocent people die, nor how many lives are inextricably damaged by their selfish attempts to support immoral and indefensible causes.
Bana’s close family are now living very comfortably in Turkey but they are still campaigning for more death and destruction in Syria. Rowling has never had the misfortune of enduring a warzone and having said that, neither have I. But then again, I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy, never mind people that I don’t know.
Rowling should stick to what she knows, writing fantasies for grateful Hollywood producers. Openly supporting the occupation and the slow ethnic cleansing of Palestinians isn’t her style, it’s one thing that she doesn’t crave publicity for.
