You may know me for my journalism from Syria, but I've lived in and reported from many more countries, including Palestine (3 years in Gaza), Venezuela, Donbass, and currently Russia.This year will see me travelling less, writing more.

Thank you for supporting my journalism!

I'm very grateful to my supporters, support which has enabled me to report from numerous countries/regions over the years.

I began in occupied Palestine, in 2007, with no support and only the determination to see with my own eyes how Palestinians are oppressed. Going to and spending 8 months in the West Bank of occupied Palestine (https://opt2007.wordpress.com/category/my-entries-from-occupied-palestine-apr-dec-2007/ ) and inevitably living in Gaza for several years (https://ingaza.wordpress.com/interviews-and-talks-on-palestine/interviews/ ) was the beginning of my political awakening.

De-arresting a Bil'in villager, pursued by Israel in its attempt to quash popular resistance. On this occasion, I had a pile of people on top of me, was kicked in the head by an Israeli soldier, and had tear gas chucked at the pile of us.

Outing MSM lies

Most of you are here because you're aware the independent journalism doesn't pay. To the contrary, we put more into actually going to the place than we could ever make from one, two, ten articles.

Because of my supporters, I've been able to go to contested places like Douma, Syria, and share the Syrian side of the story:

Taking Unpopular Positions

Although I from the beginning supported Syria's sovereign right to fight terrorism and restore peace to the country, because I was living in Gaza until March 2013, I wasn't able to go to Syria until after that, April 2014.

Since then, I have been 13 more times, including extended stays, and visiting most of the key places war propagandists outside of Syria have written about.

Taking the position I have has gotten me a lot of flack, smears, accusations, as I'm sure most here will be aware of.

But I did, we do, because standing with Syria against vulture media and the NATO-Israeli-Gulf-Turkish alliance is the right thing to do.

 While in Damascus recently, I spoke with Pierre Le Corf, a French humanitarian I've known since 2016, who has been living in Syria for the past six years, and has seen and deeply experienced all aspects of the war on Syria, living mainly in Aleppo. 

Given that Pierre lives among Syria's poorest families and devotes his time to helping poor communities in a myriad of ways, he is well-equipped to talk in detail about how Western sanctions against Syria are hurting the people. 

Excerpts:

“You might not see people starving in the street, but that's not what suffering is. People are suffering in silence. More and more, the youth are leaving the country, not because they want to leave Syria or feel oppressed, but because they feel that they have no hope anymore. The currency went from 50 Syrian pounts (before the war) to 4,000 Syrian pounds. People work from morning to night, and at the end of the day, their kids might ask for a banana. One kilogram of bananas is 5,000 Syrian pounds. When you earn 60,000 a month...”

He spoke of the pressure the US puts on every company and person who deals with Syria, that they can be imprisoned, fined. “They are forcing companies to not work with Syria,” to isolate Syria. 

“If you ask any Syrian in the street what the sanctions are for, they will tell you, 'It's hurting us and no one else.' I know families for who I'm trying to figure out how to bring them medicines that they can't find any more. A week ago, I went to bury a guy who we had been bringing medicine, because we couldn't find it any more. It became 90,000 pounds a box, he needed four boxes a month. He needed more medicine and better treatment, that we can't have, because its forbidden. Fobidden why? Because they pretend it's 'double use', maybe it could be used for the army. The people are paying the price, no one else. 

The sanctions are not just starving people and killing hope, they're also killing people.”

The issue of Turkey sending weapons to terrorist in Syria is nothing new.  But since a Turkish mobster formerly close to Erdogan has spoken out, its a good opportunity to remind people of Turkey's dirty role in the war against the Syrian people.

Speaking to Syrian media yesterday in Douma, Assad said of the West’s derision of the elections: “The best response to colonialist countries with histories of genocide and occupations was the mass turnout of the people for the vote.”


And, regarding what the West thinks of the legitimacy of those elections, he concluded: “Your opinions are worth zero, and you are worth 10 zeros.”


Amen to that.

Fantastic endorsement by the esteemed John Pilger. I'm humbled.
"This outstanding report from Syria by Eva Bartlett penetrates the 'iron dome' of Western propaganda, also known as news.
It is about a chemical attack that never happened in a country attacked, subverted and blockaded in your name."
The article in question was published at Off Guardian, May 25, 2021 

May 20 marked the start of the 2021 Syrian presidential elections. Syrians around the world outside of Syria will cast their votes—if their embassies haven’t been closed, or voting prohibited, in the countries they reside in that is.
As I wrote last week,
Western leaders hypocritically claimed concern for Syrians and wanted to ensure they live democratically – by funding and arming terrorists from around the world to slaughter them and destroy their homes, governmental buildings, and historic and cultural places–but continue to do everything in their power to make it difficult-to-impossible for Syrians to exercise their rights to vote for their president.
In closing Syrian embassies around the world, the regime-change alliance made very clear that they do not want the Syrian people to exercise their democratic right to vote in presidential elections past and future. They know that Syrians would come out in masses to vote for their president. 
Otherwise, Syrians will, on May 26, vote in Syria. This is a historic moment: after 10 years of would-be regime change in Syria, ten bloody years of unnecessary war on Syria, Syrians voting, whether for Assad or not, are voting in defiance of the West’s attempts to install a puppet government. 
In their attempts to overthrow President Assad, the West and allies have concocted accusation after accusation about alleged atrocities committed by Syria. Among the many fabrications, the more recent and perhaps notable was that of the April 2018, Douma “chemical attack” allegations. 
The Douma “Chemical Attack”
Three years ago on April 7, France, the UK and the US (FUKUS) and their allies, along with the entirety of Western corporate media, alleged that the Syrian army had used chemical weapons on civilians in Douma, just northeast of Damascus. 
The allegation was that a chemical agent airdropped onto the town had killed dozens of civilians.
As I wrote at the time, the West’s claims to have evidence to back these allegations was a transparent lie: what they had were dubious, unverified, video clips and photos shared on social media, provided by the Western-funded White Helmets and other partial and non-credible sources with affiliations to, and admiration for, Jaysh al-Islam and co-terrorist groups in eastern Ghouta.
One week later, the night before Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) inspectors were due to visit Douma (at the request of the Syrian government), FUKUS launched 103 missiles at Syria. Bombing within Damascus itself and putting the lives of Syrian civilians at risk.
They carried out this attack without waiting for any evidence at all, much less a full investigation by the OPCW. Far from a concern for the truth, or wanting to “protect” Syrian lives, FUKUS’ response was clearly about applying both political and military pressure to the government they had been trying to change for almost a decade. 
Indeed, the immediate attribution of guilt to the Syrian government, alongside the promptness of the retaliation, suggests at least foreknowledge of the “attack”, if not outright responsibility for it.

Independent Media on the Ground in Syria
In contrast to the propaganda put forth from outside of Syria – by dubious propaganda outlets like Bellingcat, as well as most of Western media – a number of journalists actually went to the area in question and spoke with medical personnel and residents. 
These include Russian and Syrian media, followed by foreign journalists including One America News Network, Vanessa Beeley, Robert Fisk, Germany’s ZDF, and myself.
We learned: there was no indication that any of the people brought in to the medical point had been exposed to a chemical agent; they were, instead, treated for normal shelling injuries, as well as for breathing difficulties due to the combination of smoke, dust, and their having taken refuge for extended periods in basements; they were all sent home after treatment, no one died in the makeshift hospital. 
We also heard of the horrific suffering of civilians in eastern Ghouta, under the savage rule of Jaysh al-Islam, Faylaq al-Rahman, and the other terrorist factions occupying the region. In fact, most residents I spoke with were more desperate to emphasize how awful life had been under their rule than talk about what they clearly viewed as lies, the chemical allegations....

Brief conversation I had last night with geopolitical analyst Laith Marouf about yesterday's Syrian presidential elections. I visited eastern Ghouta towns yesterday and saw jubilation among Syrians on the streets, including in Douma, singing and dancing. 

No matter what the lame corporate media is saying about the elections, Syrians wanted them and are still celebrating today. Hell, in 2014, a week after the elections, I saw a party raging in Homs, what the pro-"revolution" crowd used to call the "capitol of the revolution" 

Laith: “Syrians in the US went to the embassy at the UN and voted. That was a direct challenged to American hegemony, since the Americans closed the Syrian embassy in DC. But there is still a Syrian embassy at the UN, and that they can't touch, the Americans. So many people showed up at the UN headquarters, waiving flags, and so on. 

The other two countries that host the majority of Syrian refugees or immigrant populations, Germany and Turkey, again the blocked the Syrian votes from happening. At the same time, countries that were responsible for the war in Syria, like the UAE, opened the embassy, allowed Syrians to vote. 

Last week in Lebanon, tens of thousands of Syrian residents of Lebanon went to Syrian embassy in Beirut. The fact on the ground is that Syrian people are out in the millions voting in these elections.”

Marwa Osman on Israel's genocide of Gaza, and the new precedent of united regional Resistance

A very informative discussion with Beirut-based journalist and political analyst Marwa Osman, on the litany of Israeli crimes against Palestinians in Gaza during Israel's horrifying bombardment of the besieged and densely inhabited Gaza Strip.

Marwa also speaks of the unity not only among Palestinian resistance groups, but also Resistance movements throughout the region.

Israel is bombarding Gaza anew.

It's always harder to be outside of Gaza when this happens.  That may sound like a death wish or crazy statement, but whenever I've been outside of Gaza and the bombing started, my first impulse was to get back there, which is impossible now so all I can do is write and share posts about it.

Here I will give the context missing in MSM reports--if they even report on it; NY Post had the audacity to report that Hamas airforce killed 20 Israelis, when Hamas doesn't have an airforce, and it was 20 Palestinians killed by Israeli bombings. 

Two days ago, I spoke with Beirut-based geo-political analyst and media policy and law consultant, Laith Marouf, about Israel's current indiscriminate bombing of Gaza, the events preceding this latest assault, and the remarkable new capabilities of Palestinian resistance in justly & legally resisting their occupier.

*

"The Palestinian people, under international law, under the Geneva Convention, has the right for any occupied people to resist by any means available to them, including armed resistance to their occupier.
Palestinians can actually target every colonist in the land of Palestine until they are free, and they are legally right to do so. And in fact it is the only way ever to end the occupation, colonization, is to resist it militarily, to defeat it. Because those who believe that they are supreme to others, like the Zionists do, they don't understand any language but the language of resistance and violence."
