"The US Presidential candidate for the Green Party, Jill Stein, has tweeted that a planned Qatari-Turkish "US-backed" pipeline in Syria explains "so much" about the conflict, referencing a widely discredited conspiracy theory that appears to defend the regime of Bashar al-Assad." When did Jill Stein defend the regime of Bashshar Al-Asad? She never did. Her vice-president spoke in a language which appeared apologetic of the lousy regime, but Jill Stein consistently distanced herself from views which are apologetic of the regime. Also, Al-Arabiyya and other media of Saudi princes--which were founded on grotesque Jewish conspiracy theories and on anti-Semitism--are hardly the arbiters about journalism and conspiracy theories. These are the same media which promote the view that Obama is a secret Shi`ite.
