In recent years, many people from Europe and elsewhere have come to visit us in the monastery in Syria,to see for themselves what is happening in Syria. They quickly understood that what the mainstream media writes about is usually the opposite of the truth. Nearly all testify that they cannot share this reality with their own family or closest circle of acquaintances because they are not believed. After all, the majority of people need a clear label. Which they get from the media. Even when they repeat the crudest lies over and over, they become the truth to the majority of people – including believers, ecclesiastical, and intellectual circles. Only a small minority, is able to distance themselves sufficiently from the hustle and bustle and appearance of this world, seem able to see through its outward trappings and deceit. They are then ridiculed by the majority and presented as being anti-social. In the depths of the Soviet times, some Russians knew that what Pravda (Truth -newspaper) continued to proclaim with great emphasis was a lie and what was repeatedly presented as a lie was actually their reality. Our mainstream media has now fallen to this level of what was then Pravda.

Whenever the Syrian army and its allies were able to free part of the Syrian people from the terrorists, our Western media reported a spectacular story of chemical attack, bombs, attacks on hospitals or torture carried out by the Syrian army.
