Video Imagines Syrian First Lady’s Outrage Over Gaza War Applied to Killing in Homs

Whoever put this together is brilliant – MB

A video blogger has remixed footage of an interview Asma al-Assad gave to CNN in 2009, in which Syria’s British-born first lady decried the Israeli bombardment of Gaza, to make it seem as if she was speaking out against the violent crackdown on dissent currently under way in Syria.

The remix posted on YouTube cuts together outraged comments from Mrs. Assad in 2009 (including, “the barbaric assault on innocent civilians has been horrific,” and, “this is the 21st century, where in the world could this happen?”) and video shot last week of the Syrian government’s bombardment of Homs, the city her family is originally from. (Readers should be aware thatthe clip includes some extremely graphic video of a dead child with a gaping head wound.) SEE THE VIDEO AND READ THE REST.
