Formed in September 2011, the so-called Committee of Inquiry on Syria (COI) is an instrument of pro-Western imperial propaganda.
Its reports largely blame Syria’s Bashar al-Assad government for high crimes of war and against humanity committed by US and so-called coalition partners, as well as ISIS and other jihadists used as imperial proxies.
Syria’s UN envoy Bashar al-Jaafari earlier slammed its biased reports, saying the following:
They deliberately “blow things out of proportion…fully disregarding or downplaying core issues,” adding:
“There are blood-curdling scenes that flagrantly contravene the Syrians’ dignity and human rights regarding the crimes of the armed terrorist groups…”
They “rang(e) from eating human flesh, cutting throats, mutilating bodies, beheadings on sectarian and confessional grounds, throwing bodies from rooftops to committing hundreds of suicide bombings using car bombs in populated areas, recruiting children, abducting and slaughtering clergymen, assassinating scholars in mosques, issuing instigative fatwas on ‘sexual jihad,’ killing children on the charges of infidelity, robbing factories and transporting them to Turkey.”
COI reports largely ignore these horrors, focusing attention on vilifying Assad, wrongfully blaming his forces for atrocities committed by US-supported terrorists and Pentagon-led terror-bombing.
Its latest report is similar to earlier ones.
Nor did the latest COI report mention the US genocidal Caesar Act.
The legislation aims to starve 17 million Syrians into submission by threatened sanctions on nations, entities and individuals that maintain legitimate economic, financial, military, and intelligence ties to Damascus — their legal right under international law.
On all things related to endless war in the country, Damascus, Moscow, and Hezbollah are on the right side of history.
The US, its coalition partners and jihadist proxies are guilty of the highest of high crimes of war and against humanity.
