Fuck Western Media

I am home, I know that.

I am home and these are my people, my beautiful and amazing people. And I cannot express how I feel, I don’t understand how do western journalists write what they write about Northern Syria, I have been to Latakia mountains and now I am in Idleb, Kafranbel, will be staying here for few days then heading to Aleppo.

Every single person I meet, and I have met a lot, and I have met many Free Syrian Army battalions, and oh my God, they’re heroes, some of them are fucked in the head – well some want to act like macho men in front of me coz I am a woman- but they’re good people. They, the armed revolutionaries, want to go back to their lands, cows and olives farms, they’re good people.

I am overwhelmed. I am home and among amazing people who share with you inspiring stories with a big smile on their face. All I can do is look deep in their eyes and wish that someday I have the strength to become as firm as they are.

So my question to the western media who’re depicting this area as bunch of Salafists, Islamists and Qaeda: where the fuck are you getting your shit from? Why are you deliberately missing out on the people of Syria who have since day one lead this revolution and been through the shelling, besiege, detention..you know what, you don’t even know what each of these words mean, do you know what detention means? what shelling means? what the sound of airplane means as it’s flying over your village? Over your children’s heads? No electricity here at all in some areas, I am lucky to go around some activists’ places to check my mail and write this blog post, but families spend the hours on candles and warm their bodies with wood instead of gas – it’s very expensive to buy gas here.

Latakia mountains, December.

Latakia mountains, December.

There isn’t anyone here who hasn’t had at least one near-death experience. That in itself is just unbelievable.

As I said, I am overwhelmed by the people here and their stories. But I cannot forgive the journalists who’re coming here and missing out on life, love, hope and inspiration, and they go on reporting on hate, on black flags just so they can get ahead on their careers. Your career is ruining our revolution, our homes and our very future. Fuck you big time, dear journalist.

This blog will try as much as possible to report on how we, Syrians, see our own revolution.

You just wait and see.

  2. I love what you wrote , only using the “F” word isn’t appropriate, so would you please consider to rectify your blog ? I know you’re angry, we all are, very angry, but let us not use this language.
    Thank you

    • Masha’Allah Sister, i am an American Muslim. I and many like me have expressed extreme contempt for the West and it’s inadequate response. Allah commands us to do better. The Holy Qur’an tells us what to do. The Media is Biased, even bigoted, in the West. Assad should be tried for genocide. insha’Allah.

  3. Dear bloger, bravo for your angry, you are right, continue in this way. I contacted some one to try to publish it. If I translate, I will transform the “F” in something more soft… I am, we are with you totally, your people is really fantastic, continue to “F” the occidental vision, but can you relate your trip, your meetings, your journey, some anecdotes… why you are overwhelmed by the people and their stories and so on. How they reorganize the life in this liberated region…
    Yet bravo for your action, and your reactions, freedom is coming, I wish all the best for your beautiful people, and for you!

  4. Thank you for writing this and please keep on writing. Syrians on the outside and the rest of world need the unfiltered information from people like yourself. After twenty one months of savagery endured by the people of Syria,with little concern from the rest of the world, the F word is not only appropriate here it is actually an understatement.

  6. Thank you for this post and please keep on posting. Syrians on the outside and the rest of world needs unfiltered information from brave people like you. After 21 months of unspeakable savagery against the Syrian people, your use of the F word is not only appropriate but is actually an understatement.

  7. Western assholes are obsessed with ‘jihadis’ who do more to save innocent lives than all the Western powers put together! Are these the priorities of (what’s left of) Western morality?

    • Well put, Michael. The Murder the Assad’s have commited angers me beyond belief. The West long ago surrendered Moral authority to lead anything.
