Fake Cities Of The Arab Spring

The 'Fake' Cities of Syria's Unrest

"It’s been reported briefly by a number of news outlets that a documentary/news show in Syria recently suggested the unrest currently taking place there is not really happening. Instead, they allege it's actually being staged in cinematic replicas of Syrian cities for the Al Jazeera news organization.

That's right: fake cities, built in Qatar by Al Jazeera, occupied by hordes of actors, under the direction of filmmakers to create a false impression of what’s happening on the ground in Syria. Or at least that’s the spin.

Or perhaps more accurately, propaganda. As this post from The New York Times mentions, the station that ran the allegations on September 9 is closely tied to the ruling regime of President Bashar al-Assad.

“Addounia TV is owned by Mohamed Hamsho, who is the brother-in-law of Maher al Assad, the commander of Syria’s Republican Guard and the brother of President Bashar al-Assad of Syria.”

The post also links to this video of the broadcast, subtitled in English by a YouTube channel called the Syrian Interpreter and aptly titled "Addounia TV hitting the crack pipe, 9 Sept."

Al Jazeera’s fake Libyan Green Square

"Al Jazeera and Sky News on Sunday aired videos showing rebels celebrating their surprisingly quick victory over Tripoli in Green Square.

But we believe that they have actually been showing a staged scene, including a fake scenery, one that’s reportedly been built in Doha, Qatar. Impossible you say? Then continue reading.

First off, let’s see a recording of a show aired on the Libyan state television on 17 Aug, just four days before the incident. In it, we are told that parts of Tripoli have been reproduced in Qatar, to be used as a scenery for fake proof of the fall of Tripoli."
