I am now relying on people in Syria who inform me of what is happening. I have reached the following conclusion: I can't rely on Aljazeera and Al-Arabiyyah TV to know about Syria. They have become so unreliable. Of course, on the other side, Al-Manar TV has proven to be most unreliable: as far as they are concerned, all is quiet on the Syrian front. But then again: how can I take seriously a network that peddles in a special section (on its website) the writings and analysis of Mr. Franklin Lamb.
