Manufacturing Dissent: The Truth You Were Not Told About Syria

Manufacturing Dissent is a documentary posthumously dedicated to Syrian Palestinian actor Mohamad Rafea, who was kidnapped, tortured and finally brutally murdered on Sunday, November 4th, 2012 by terrorist groups that have been set loose on the country since the US, UK, Israel, Saudi, and their western and Gulf State allies launched a covert war in Syria in early 2011, dressed up by the media as a “revolution”.


Rafea was kidnapped and killed by the terrorist group calling themselves the “Free Syrian Army” (FSA) to which today the US government considers to be “al Qaeda” and the “Moderate” rebels that the US tax payers just funded $500 million for arms and training.

The words spoken in this video are by Rafea, and the courage he shows here in this great documentary, is why he was murdered.

Manufacturing Dissent is a feature about the psychological-warfare by the mass media and political establishment of the west and their allies aimed at facilitating the US, European and Israeli agenda of getting rid of the current Syrian government. It demonstrates how the media has directly contributed to the bloodshed in Syria.

Manufacturing Dissent includes evidence of fake reports broadcasted/published by the likes of CNN, BBC, Al Jazeera and others and interviews with a cross section of the Syrian population including an actor, a craftsman, a journalist, a resident from Homs and an activist who have all been affected by the crisis.

Produced by journalists Lizzie Phelan and Mostafa Afzalzadeh.

Edited by Lizzie Phelan.
