inside the country with. neighboring states. deep inside the syrian conflict right now. as the conflict in syria continues to unfold under the watchful gaze of the world's media there are all those that say that we aren't receiving the full picture of what's going on on the ground in the embattled middle eastern country now one of those people joins me right now manuel oxon the writer thank you very much for speaking to me thank you well to start off how long were you in syria and where were you mean what did you see i was for nine days in syria in july and i was exactly the time when the so-called bentyl of damascus was reaching and i was
inside the mosque with all the time and i could compare every day the worldwide media coverage with what i saw with my own eyes now what you saw while you were on the ground in syria doesn't seem to fit with what we're seeing on our t.v. screens does it well at first it is a difference everybody saw what's in damascus because the worldwide media coverage of the mainstream media coverage claimed that the massacres is what's at that time when this so-called battle of the massacres that massacres will cain or the opposition of the rebel to the armed opposition called this operation they were seeing that hold the mouse because it's on fire their heavy fighting so i think even a couple of days later when the battle was reaching they were saying that now the rebels are so close to the city center that they are a power to conquer now the city the government will fall i was inside the city and then you didn't see any of them therefore there was no war in the city of course
they were in some suburbs you saw that that they were fighting but it wasn't at all a better reaching inside the city now in terms of the scale of this conflict nine days isn't a whole lot of time to spend on the ground there has been going on for over a year what you saw though did you feel that that was typical of what was the beliefs and feelings of people in syria in general what i didn't we. this is the beginning what what happened in march or in april last year when when the demonstrations and so on began and what eyewitnesses i spoke to a lot of people who are not outspoken not with the syrian government and they didn't have any problems to tell me as a foreign journalist that they are not with their government but in this is i think the most important difference to the media coverage here they were all against this war which is now raging so they said all of the we are not with our government right now we support our army in pushing back the foreign terrorists from our
countries so then we can make the changes and the reforms we need in our country now you've been quite critical of german foreign policy concerning syria one of the main problems for you well first of all it's really ridiculous how drew many seems to react on what is happening in syria because. i got very much the impression that the german policy makers the german politicians get all their information by the mainstream media and i ask myself why did we use to have an embassy in this country why did we use to have diplomatic personnel in this country and by the way why do we have a secret service who is monitoring what is going on we are doing a lot of things based on. more or less very very bad information sources but when it comes out later that it's wrong we don't step back now their example which is maybe a little bit more funny if you compared but it's serious of course if you look of about the political consequence of the tapes was the so-called syrian gager if you
remember last year in june there are several n.g.o.s homosexuals in she owes where not just to clarify what you're speaking about was a a blog that was supposed to be from a lesbian woman in syria that turned out to actually be written by a man based in scotland. so so it was it came out in june there was a big campaign they were claiming that this syrian girl which never existed which is also it well known today that she never existed that she was arrested by the assad security forces so the german chairman for for human rights in the german foreign ministry marcos learning from the liberal party was immediately reacting he gave a statement on what happened and he was saying this is showing obvious that there's a sub government is not taking seriously the reforms in t. show the release immediately i mean up dollar so what came out i think just two or
two or three days later it came out that it was as you say at the u.s. american guy located in scotland to making this block so it was a complete fraud so what was for me interesting as a journalist where two questions the first question was how does it how does it manage that german official is reacting so quick. such an issue and the second much more important question is when it comes out later that it is also fraught how do we react do we say sorry do we take it back do we corrected for the german audience are you a critique of of the citizen journalism i'm not i'm not criticizing it generally because this citizen journalism can be a really important instrument but what we learn about the within the conflict of syria is that this so-called citizen journalism is abused by several the end shiels by by lobby groups who are abusing like their life for what for what ends are they being abused for making pressure on politicians for making decisions for example
the decision of breaking up diplomatic relations with a country that is the decision to support with financial means and with technology means the so-called opposition to make. but who gains from that no nobody makes a decision nobody pushes this hard without gaining something and what you're saying who gains out of the situation you put forward well they have they are there are a couple of interest groups who benefit from such a politics you have it first the interest groups of the big interests interest groups of the western governments who want to have the regime change there and who are supporting that the information you get from these countries are very much one sided or money that where you are speaking about information there was a statement it came out from a senior u.s. military official who said that if you want information on syria first call is always to germany germany is far more involved in this than most people think only
yes unforgivably and it's really really very embarrassing for for germany because what i don't see what i really don't see is any german national interest so in my opinion this shows in particular foreign politics that germany's they're not really acting like a super in state should do me personally i don't see a necessity why we should. invite fifty syrian opposition worlds to germany to educate them in berlin by educate what do you mean political trading what we are doing by that is that we support the overthrow of the syrian government we are interfering in syrian why shouldn't germany train these people and how the democratic process works to make sure that syria isn't run by the guy with the most guns in his hands is that our german chop is that our german shock to train people from all over the road what happens if their government is overthrown and a revolution is taking palace what with the russian what the russians say if if we train our people to overthrow putin what would the u.s. american see if we train now here by taxpayers money so we all donating this is the
germans for a revolution in u.s. or in any other country so we are now or in that case of syria maybe the populations are look this government is so cruel and this assad is so mean he's so brutally slaughter it's good that we train these people because it basis and we were talking before on this wrong information and they don't that's wrong image about what is going on that country so you see this this fits together but as i said if this is really my point of view it's not our job as germans to educate them to train people for taking over governments in other countries it's not our job to do our job is to get good relations to put the government's existing this is my point well this conflict in syria isn't going anywhere anytime soon it does seem and it's plenty much more we could talk about safer now thank you very much ben well thank you.
