‘WHERE ARE ALL THEIR PARENTS?’ Mother Agnes Mariam el-Salib, Mother Superior of St James’ Monastery, Qara Syria, Melkite Catholic nun’s report: ‘same bodies…same clothes…in different locations? … footage peddled as evidence fabricated in advance’ @ Independent Catholic News + Global Resarch + LA ROSA
A Melkite Catholic nun, who has lived and worked in Syria for 20 years has complied a comprehensive report on some recent films and images of the civil war which are being circulated by the media.
Mother Agnes Mariam el-Salib, Mother Superior of St James’ Monastery in Qara, questions the validity of the photographs and video footage which are being circulated as proof that the Syrian President used sarin gas on his own people. No one doubts that a lot of children died, but Mother Agnes has examined the pictures and asked why there are only piles of dead children. She asks: Where are all their parents? And why do the same bodies in the same clothes keep on cropping up in different locations?
Mother Agnes is a well- respected religious who has been consistently outspoken about the atrocities committed by Western-backed Syrian rebels against Christians and other minorities. She said of the events of the morning of 21 August: “I am not saying that no chemical agent was used in the area – it certainly was. But I insist that the footage that is now being peddled as evidence had been fabricated in advance. I have studied it meticulously, and I will submit my report to the UN Human Rights Commission based in Geneva.
