Commander of Iran's Basij (volunteer) forces Brigadier General Mohammad Reza Naqdi deplored vast and strong censorship in the mainstream media in the West, and said what is reported from unrests in Britain is just tip of the iceberg.And, of course, the inside scoop on Syria requires a "senior Lebanese analyst":
"We should not assume that we are aware of the different aspects of the violation of human rights in Britain because many humanitarian disasters in Britain have not been disclosed to the public due to strict news censorship," Naqdi said on Monday.
He underscored that the Zionist media have resorted to massive propaganda campaign to hide the deep crises in the arrogant countries.

"Since several months ago, satellite channels, internet websites, TV and radio channels, newspapers and media in and outside the region have embarked on waging intensive media attacks against Syria," Head of the National Council of Audio-Visual Media Qaleb Qandil told FNA on Monday.
He added that these fabricated stories aim to distort the truth in Syria, create a series of demands and attribute them to the people of Syria in a bid to bring them (people of Syria) into confrontation with the Syrian government.
Qandil cautioned that enemies have used videos of protests held in Lebanon, Iraq and Jordan in the past and mixed them with fabricated voices in a bid to falsify facts and portray them as new anti-government demonstrations in Syria.
Meantime, he stressed ineffectiveness of such acts and stated that Syrian citizens are well familiar with such plots and conspiracies. [...]
