Lies of the Ikhwan opposition in Syria

I have posted below about fake footage on the side of the regime.  Here is the other side.  Raed sent me this:  "I don't know whether you have spoken about this. There seem to be some crude video fabrications of atrocities by the syrian regime, set up by anti government forces in the country. For example, there is something clearly suspect about these two videos:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oFDGy4-DDH4 (the ambulance guy smashes the window with his own arm, rather than any bullet doing it, plus when they take him out he doesn't look too injured)
http://vimeo.com/27689008 (a bunch of guys supposedly killed by security forces, but they don't look dead or injured at all to me, all seem to be moving!)

There is also the recent case of Sari Saoud of Homs, which aljazeera reported on-- they claimed he was killed by the army. But later on when journalists spoke to the mother, it seems he was in fact killed by armed thugs (which, it is claimed, are anti-government) when the army wasn't deployed in homs. This is shown in

I am aware of propaganda efforts on both sides, but i didnt realise this stretched to creating fake videos!"
