Fakes Debunked

What is a fake? A fake is a form of war propaganda invented by Joesph Goebbels, the Nazi German propagandist, that was later heavily used in Russian propaganda. Goebbels said of Russia, “Lenin is the greatest man, second only to Hitler, and that the difference between Communism and the Hitler faith is very slight.”

What is propaganda?
To attract people, to win over people to that which I have realized as being true, that is called propaganda. In the beginning there is the understanding, this understanding uses propaganda as a tool to find those men, that shall turn understanding into politics. Success is the important thing.  It is not supposed to be lovely or theoretically correct.The point of a political speech is to persuade people of what we think right -Joseph Goebbels
What is a propaganda fake? Joseph Goebbels said
If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.
Houthis adopt Nazi propaganda techniques, such as deflecting blame for their corruption, theft and mismanagement onto jews, shouting “Death to Israel, Damn the Jews.”

Houthis also kidnapped Dr. Guneid. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/yemen-twitter-abdul-kader-al-guneid_55cd0a81e4b0399742ef3e1f , a doctor who was tweeting facts on the ground which contradicted the false information Houthis were spreading via unaccountable and corrupt aid organizations.

Unlike under Ali Saleh’s time before he received help from Russia and Iran, his forces with Houthis kidnap activists in Yemen who contradict his propaganda.
There is such impunity that the kidanpper’s press agent messages Human Rights Watch, that after the message came up with a report with crocodile tears. Ali Saleh’s last name is Afaash/Afaashi. Hamed Ghaleb Afaashi is his relative, known to disburse incentives to work with the former dictator.

Both of these two Hameed Ghaleb Al-Afaashi tweeted at were later featured in a BBC film. The reason for the Omeisy screenshot from a different time is to illustrate the relationship between him and Ali Saleh’s press agent. Saleh’s other agent is businessman Faris Sanabani.
This is real. A Polish MP, as Poland has seen Russia use propaganda called the coverage unprofessional  http://blogs.new.spectator.co.uk/2015/09/tory-mp-accuses-bbc-of-bias-over-amateurish-newsnight-yemen-special/
There are others trying to sue the BBC for libel and accusing it of bias. See BBC Watch  http://bbcwatch.org/
Many of those activists are jailed by Houthis, defamed abroad of have their accounts hacked.
Yemen is a corrupt third world country, whose former dictator Ali Saleh stole $60 billion, is one of the world’s richest dictators trying to return to power. There is no accountability. An anecdote from a ex-Saleh associate illustrates it, an American journalist told him “What I am writing is total bullshit, but nobody gives a fuck about Yemen” and took the money.
Most westerners do not believe corruption exists. When activists try to explain to westerners outside of Poland and Ukraine about corruption, westerners say “this is a conspiracy theory”. Conspiracy theories are pushed by Russia, Iran and the Soviet Union that the west is corrupt like the east. Conspiracy theories about collusion of capitalists in transparent accountable societies are untrue, or Martha Stewart would have not gone to jail for insider trading. There are laws that prevent collusion. However, in the lawless third world, there is no accountability. Even in criminal and drug gangs in the west, the few remaining areas of unaccountably until they are thrown in jail, collusion exists.
What is a criminal activity relegated to drug gangs in the unaccountable highly transparent west is a normal way of doing business in corrupt dictatorships.
In Yemen, Africa, the Lebanese civil war and other warzones, corruption of aid agencies and journalists is the norm, not the exception because of the lack of accountability. http://www.transparency.org/topic/detail/humanitarian_assistance
Corruption is common in the United Nations. Recently, the US arrested a former secretary general. http://www.reuters.com/article/2015/10/07/us-usa-crime-macau-idUSKCN0S01CG20151007
“If proven, today’s charges will confirm that the cancer of corruption that plagues too many local and state governments infects the United Nations as well,” Bharara said.The intermediaries included Francis Lorenzo, 48, a deputy U.N. ambassador from the Dominican Republic who prosecutors said Ng paid $20,000 monthly as “honorary president” of one of his organizations, South-South NewsAshe, 61, also received more than $800,000 from Chinese businessmen to support their interests within the U.N. and Antigua, and kicked some of the money to Antigua’s then-prime minister, who was not named, the complaint said.The complaint said Ashe solicited bribes in various forms, including payments to cover a New Orleans family vacation and construction for a $30,000 basketball court at his house in Dobbs Ferry, New York.
aid goes to black market
You can buy UN aid from Houthis on facebook https://twitter.com/RashaJarhum/status/646779709448044544
There are no reports of local civilians in South and Central Yemen receiving UN aid. Activists report the majority of aid in Aden taken by Houthis to be sold on the black market https://twitter.com/Dhalie1/status/61736670700336742aid sold to Houthis4
Instead of docking in Aden, UN and World Food Program’s ships docked in then Houthi occupied Hodeidha. Dhaela is in South Yemen, was the first area liberated from Houthis who were under siege at that time.
Corruption in in the third world very real. This is not a conspiracy. You can verify it yourself.

Corruption is endemic in most African societies but is worst in countries where:

  • institutions such as the legislature and judiciary are weak;
  • the rule of law is not strictly enforced;
  • political patronage is the norm;
  • the independence and professionalism of the public and private sectors have been eroded; and
  • civil society lacks the means to hold perpetrators to account.(15)
This is the case in Saleh’s Yemen. This is why fakes are published. For more information on Corruption in Africa, read
Ali Saleh Al Afaash, Yemen’s ex dictator, wanted to return in a coup, and went to the Nazi-Germany idolizing government of Iran and of Russia for help .
houthi loves putler
Now that we established that
1) corruption exists
2) there is impunity for westerners to take bribes.
3) UN has been caught for corruption charges
4) Saleh has aid from totalitarian regimes like Iran & Russia
It might be extremely hard for a westerner to comprehend that Russia and Iran are totalitarian and corrupt regimes. They teach corrupt Ali Saleh to be totalitarian too. Iran has a long history of a relationship with Nazi Germany, even before the Islamic revolution http://www.independentsentinel.com/irans-unholy-alliance-with-hitler-enshrined-in-a-name/
The west appeased Iran which began more and more aggressive the same way it appeased Hitler. Now combine this with in Yemen :
  • the rule of law is not strictly enforced;
  • political patronage is the norm;
  • the independence and professionalism of the public and private sectors have been eroded; and
  • civil society lacks the means to hold perpetrators to account.
It would be no wonder that considering appeasement of Iran and Russia and the corruption in Yemen that most information about Saudi is fake. Here is a senator with experience as a lawyer in America confronting a biased NGO that is likely lying about its data. The NGO refuses to answer the question about scientific evidence and keeps saying “97% percent of scientist have a consensus” regardless of the facts that were produced. An NGO arguing about science refused to consider any scientific evidence that would counter its political agenda openly and refused to retract anything if refuted based on scientific evidence.  If this happens in America, with senators who are lawyers what hope is there for Yemen?
This is not a new practice. This is what Russia always did in Ukraine. The difference is the mainstreamization of totalitarian propaganda through mainstream western institutions because civil society lacks the means to hold perpetrators to account. Also Saudis have never done media relations before and ignored media relations. There is no connection between Saudi media, media relations people and local Yemeni activists. Pro Iran Intercept alleges that Saudi hires media relations staff. There is no evidence of this on the ground.
Here is an example of Russian style fakes. A common Russian practice is to fire on their own people, bring their own television crew then say Ukrainian army, that doesn’t fly planes there, did http://www.stopfake.org/en/russia-s-top-100-lies-about-ukraine/ Russians published false information when they shot down a Malaysia Airlines plane, MH17. Iran and Hezbollah use the same techniques in Syria.

Here are some debunked Assad regime fakes, a whole website of them.


Twice has Seymour Hersh given his outstandingly ridiculous conspiracy “analysis” as to the events of Ghouta’s 21st August attack, and twice he has been shut down with his ramblings dissected:

To understand totalitarian propaganda, one must read George Orwell’s 1984. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nineteen_Eighty-Four . An excellent quote is “two legs good, four legs bad” or “all poor including thieves good, all rich including the non corrupt bad” http://www.sparknotes.com/lit/1984/
When a whistleblower cannot be killed, totalitarians come with a campaign to discredit him, and westerners are soft pansies that prefer to appease any thug or tough lobbyist they see. Therefore, thugs can easily get away with totalitarian misinformation and corruption outside of Ukraine. For example after one phone call from New York Times that reported fakes in Yemen, the Atlantic editor that questioned this began to cave and appease Hezbollah. After Iran invaded several countries as did Putin the west did what they could to appease them through the Iran deal. They did the same with Hitler as atheists do not have the stomach to fight. If a nerd doesn’t use their lazer gun, a cave barbarian can beat them to death with a club. Therefore Russia and Iran buy up and lobby western institutions with impunity to push for their totalitarian agenda and see what they can get away with. A German scientist came up with this chart. This is only the connection of Russian money through German institutions and those connected to them.
putin propaganda orgs
If there was more research money, Saleh, Putin,  Iran, Assad, Hezbollah and Hamas corruption information propaganda network can be exposed. Currently most money for research, perks and grants comes from the corrupt dictator network. There is no money or effort by the west to invest in anything to keep their own institutions accountable.
Therefore, the less the scrutiny, the more there is the mainstreamization of Russian-Goebbels fakes.
Goebbels was sued by Weiss for lying about Jews, Goebbels later defamed Weiss http://www.haaretz.com/news/features/this-day-in-jewish-history/1.538730
Some of the most notorious libel in history came from the Nazi tabloid Der Strummer.
 Stories of Jewish men and German women having sex were staples of Der Stürmer[12] but many were creations of Streicher’s imagination, derived from little fact, or random occurrences. Streicher described Jews as sex offenders who were[11] “violators of the innocent”, “perpetrators of bizarre sex crimes”, and “ritual murderers” performed in religious ceremonies using blood of other humans, usually Christians. Streicher also frequently reported attempts of child molestation by Jews. Der Stürmer never lacked details about sex, names, and crimes in order to keep readers aroused and entertained. These accusations, articles and crimes printed in Der Stürmer were often inaccurate and rarely investigated by staff members.
Bashar Assad still uses this propaganda today. His propagandist Partisan Girl. Eventually the tweet was taken down.

Hitler managed to get away with pushing his propaganda into the mainstream western media in the 1930s. More information here. http://commons.emich.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1313&context=theses
David Halton wrote of his father Matthew Halton’s biography, a Canadian journalist in WW2 who went against mainstream media in the 1930s and wrote for the Toronto Star that Hitler was a bad man. http://www.amazon.com/Dispatches-Front-Matthew-Halton-Canadas/dp/0771038135 The interesting point about Dispatches from the Front is to what extent David Halton was like South and Central Yemen’s Steve Day – a lone voice when most journalist enjoyed the perks of sympathizing towards Hitler or hoped to enjoy them. A similar situation is occurring in Yemen. Few westerners have the courage to challenge the propaganda thugs of Iran and Russia outside of Poland and Ukraine.
1) Ali Saleh is corrupt
2) NGOs/Media can be corrupt if there is no oversight or consequences and if civil society lacks the means to hold perpetrators to account.
3) There are currently no consiquences for libeling Yemenis
4) Saleh contracted out help from Russia and Iran. Russia is known for fakes and Iran is known for using Iran methods of libel.
5) Appeasing Iran emboldened it, as did appeasing Russia. If they get away violating international law, invading countries, bombing hospitals, they can get away with giving a few perks to famous newspaper editors and a few threats.
6) Saleh who stole $60 billion from Yemen, contracted Russia and Iran for propaganda help since he was an abysmal failure in media relations on his own in the Arab spring.
This means all news on Yemen for western organizations would be to promote Ali Saleh’s goals of destroying democracy in Yemen and being ruler.
Here is an example of a fake from BBC
fake lies BBC report on Sanaa
Saleh propagandists promote a communist narrative that the richest country in the middle east is bombing the Middle East’s poorest, when six month before, the middle east’s richest dictator Ali Saleh over threw the country’s democratic government and began to rob, kill and steal through houthis. South and Central Yemen rose up against Ali Saleh. Saleh propagandists try to erase south and central Yemen and make it about Rich Saudi versus poor Poor Houthi. In fact, little of the fighting is done either by Saudi or Houthi. Houthis front Saleh forces, his former Yemeni army he built over 35 years. Saudi does areal bombings, but only 10% of deaths from Sanaa are Saudi airstrikes. South and Central Yemeni resistance do most of the fighting. It is a Libyan style war, with Saudi as airforce, and Houthis are merely a mask of Saleh, estimated to be a couple 100 in total. Houthis are from a small tribe in Al Houtha, near Saada. Saleh’s army dress like them and try to imitate their accents.
The Yemeni revolutionary civil war is one of the largest propaganda deception operations in modern western history, with the average westerner not knowing the existence or names of the actors on the ground doing the fighting.
Yemen is an Orwellian situation where the majority of newspapers accept some sort or lobbying and allegedly bribes in some cases as well as western aid organizations to lie for ex dictator Saleh and his “Death to Jews” screaming Houthi militias. Most western press publish libel is liable to legal action more than actual news since they believe Yemenis won’t sue. Lying for Yemen and Iran dictators is a lucrative business. It is proof that democracy is dead in the west, as the west does not care to safe guard its institutions from abuse from the dictators that want to destroy the west.
Here is a debunking of the fake recently published on the wedding.

Our problem with BBC, the propaganda arm of Iran
There allegations he did this in more than one country for Hezbollah
He did this in Yemen
