The dishonest Sunni vs Shia binary applied by propagandists to misrepresent the situation in Syria



Peja Mistry:  I keep insisting that BBCUrdu is full of Islamist journalists with Deobandi/Wahabi leaning funded by Saudi Arabia. They ensure that they hide the identity of Wahabi/Salfi Islamist whenever they report about Islamist terrorist, they deliberately propagate Shia-Sunnai binary and hide the fact that a vast majority of Sunnis are not Wahabi/Salafi/Deobandi and they don’t have issues with Shia.

Peja Mistry correctly highlights the dishonest Sunni vs Shia binary that is applied by propagandists to misrepresent the situation in Syria?

If Syria is about Sunni vs Shia, then what about Assad’s wife and army and senior officials and muftis who are all Sunni!

What about the Syrian Kurds – who are majority Sunni – who are being bombed by Turkey while being supported by Russia!

What about the Druze and Christians and Yazidis – who are all being massacred by the “moderate rebels” of the Wahhabi-Salafi Al Qaeda/FSA/ISIS etc? How does the dishonest “Sunni vs Shia” binary explain the genocide of Christians, Druze and Yazidis in Syria and Iraq by Saudi-Qatari-Turkish-NATO backed Wahhabi-Salafi “moderate rebels/insurgents”

Saudi backed Ayyan Aloush of the Jaish al Fatah/Jaish al Islam (can’t keep up with the various avatars of these Saudi backed Al Qaeda-ites) used to threaten to do to Pro Syrian government citizens what the Ommayads did to the Holy Prophet’s family! – is that a Sunni vs Shia thing!!
What rubbish!

Peja Mistry is absolutely correct – propagandists like BBC continue to peddle the Deobandi/Wahhabi narrative that seeks to 1. Perpetuate Sunni vs Shia Binary 2. Hide the specific Deobandi/Wahhabi identity of the Al Qaeda extremists being branded by hacks like BBC as “moderate rebels”
The same rubbish is being peddled for Iraq.

Whenever someone uses generic terms like “Islamists” without highlighting the specific Deobandi/Wahhabi/Salafi identity of Al Qaeda/FSA/ISIS in Syria and Iraq, you should know they are up to cover ups and obfuscations.
