In February 2012, a controversy erupted over Bassma Kodmani's participation in a French televised program featuring Israeli writers back in 2008. The video featured on Youtube shows selected excerpts of the program and accuses Bassma Kodmani of defending Israel for stating that "we need Israel in the region." In response to these accusations, Bassma Kodmani published a response explaining that the video was fabricated in order to hurt her reputation as it took her answers out of context and cut everything that she said in defense of the rights of Arabs, Muslims and Palestinians. She described this video as nothing more than an attempt of the regime to destabilize the Syrian National Council.

I noticed with Syria, that there is little to no video's, live stream, or images coming out compared to what happened in Lybia, Egypt, Palestine, Afganistan, and Pakistan. Is there a blackout in the U.S. and abroad to hide what might be actually happening there?
