Druze students returning to the Golan Heights from Syria said on Monday that they never saw any demonstrations, and that reports and pictures emerging from the country were not reliable.
However, questions came fast and furious from journalists at the site, who practically pounced on the returning students, many of whom were taken aback.
"There was a feeling of uncertainty, people are very confused," said Nadar Khalabi, who studies Arabic literature.
"I went out to the street when I heard there was a demonstration, but I didn't see anyone," he said. "A large part of the pictures and reports from Syria are not reliable, at least that was our impression."
Another student, Wissam Safdy, agreed. "I went to the al-Mazzah neighborhood in Damascus when there were reports of demonstrations, but I didn't see anything," he said. "We don't know what's happening, but in Damascus things are calm, and the prevailing feeling is that in the end Syria will come out of this crisis."

As i suspected. The whole Syria "crisis" may just be another Hoax perpetrated by the MSM and mirrored all over the world, except in Syria, of course. It is the same thing as happened in Libya it seems, where a few CIA orchestrated initial shootings where blown up and magnified in the MSM, and blamed on the Libyan regime.
And we all know how that ended.
Who stands to profit from an Islamist middle-east?
