Fabrications and lies of Al-Arabiyya (the news station of King Fahd's brother-in-law)

From Ali, Angry Arab's chief correspondent in Turkey: 
"Assad this may be a long mail but I think it's important, because it is one of the best example of media manipulation of all time.

Al Arabiya: "Syrian opposition fighters have announced the capture of suspected assassins of French journalist Gilles Jacquier who was killed in a rocket explosion in the city of Homs early last year. A Free Syrian Army commander appeared in a video aired by Al Arabiya on Tuesday saying that four months ago a few members of Assad’s Shabbiha gangs were captured while conducting assassinations in the Baba Amr area."

When Jacquier was killed last year, the western&Gulf media and top western officials blame the regime. However, they never mentioned that he was killed by a rocket while "watching a pro-regime" demonstration in Homs.

- like all western media and top officials, AFP manipulating the event by concealing Jacquier "was watching a pro-regime demonstration" when the rocket hit: and they reported the statements of "activists" and "syrian national council" who were blaming it on the regime.

- But the truth (interestingly the truth was exposed by an AFP journalist Joseph eid, AFP never asked his opinions on the event although he was an eyewitness :

Later on Le figaro exposed the truth and blame "syrian rebels" for the killing: l'enquête française pointe les rebelles syriens - source:  )

When the lie was exposed the western media became dumb and terminated their campaign against Syrian regime, like Al Arabiya...
For almost a year later, Al Arabia suddenly show up again and blame the regime for killing."
