The picture of bloodied Omran Daqneesh sitting alone in an ambulance was exploited to illustrate the “suffering of Aleppo” and the “brutality of the Assad regime.”
However, now new pictures of Omran Daqneesh have emerged that show him happy, healthy, and living with his family who say that “rebel groups and the international media wanted to use his son to attack the Syrian regime.”
Indeed, the Omran’s picture was used to justify U.S. support for the Syrian “rebels.” Hillary Clinton invoked the image of Omran Daqneesh during one of the Presidential debates, clearly signaling she would continue to help the “rebels” in Syria if elected.
The “rebels” are actually foreign fighters, jihadists, Sunni Muslims answering an international jihadist cattle call to take up arms against the Alawite government in Syria. These are not the sons of Syria who are cutting open the bodies of those they have killed to eat their internal organs.
The Obama administration lavished these foreign invaders with weapons, money, and training. The result of that was a Sunni caliphate, the Islamic State. The White Helmets, an al Qaeda front group in Syria, won the Academy Award this year, and were up for a Nobel Peace Prize.
Despite all this, despite Western governments giving enormous aid to the Sunnis armed insurrection in Syria, and support of their foul propaganda, today we have Sunni Muslims running amok and killing unarmed people “for Syria.” But they are not killing for Syria. They are not killing for Omran Daqneesh. They are killing, both at home, and abroad, to impose their primitive, barbaric, fascist ideology called Sunni Islam.
New photos emerge of Omran Daqneesh, the boy who became a symbol of Aleppo’s suffering
Raf Sanchez for the Telegraph, June 5, 2017:
New photographs have emerged of Omran Daqneesh, the little Syrian boy whose image was seen around the world as a symbol of the suffering of Aleppo.
Three-year-old Omran became a global icon last August after his home was bombed by Russian or Syrian regime forces in the final months of the siege of Aleppo.
In photographs published on social media on Monday he appears healthy and recovered and is sitting on his father’s knee.
Omran’s image was widely used to illustrate the brutality of the Assad regime as it tried to crush the opposition in Aleppo, Syria’s largest city.
But his family, like many others in rebel-held east Aleppo, are reported to have remained loyal to the regime throughout the siege.
They refused all media interviews and reportedly went into regime-held west Aleppo when they had a chance.
The family was interviewed this week by several pro-regime Syrian and Lebanese television channels. In a clip from one interview, Omran’s father said rebel groups and the international media wanted to use his son to attack the Syrian regime.
“They wanted to trade in his blood and published his photos,” he said. He said his shaved his son’s head to try to disguise him and shield him from media attention.
It is possible the family felt forced to take part in the interview for their own safety.
Omran’s older brother Ali, aged ten, was killed in the same strike that injured Omran.
Kinana Allouche, a pro-regime journalist, posted photographs of herself interviewing Omran and his family. “The child Omran, those who tried to shed Syrian blood mislead the news that he was hit by the Syrian Arab Army,” she wrote. “Here he now lives in the Syrian state with its army, its leader and its people.”
Ms Allouche drew internet attention last year after she posted a smiling selfie of herself standing in front of dead rebels.
The siege of Aleppo ended in December last year, when a deal was reached to allow residents and fighters from east Aleppo to leave their homes and go into the countryside.
