Al-Laham: National Media Should be the Voice of People 

May 29, 2013

The People’s Assembly Committee of Journalism, Printing and Publishing in the presence of Speaker Mohammad Jihad al-Laham and Minister of Information, Omran al-Zoubi held a meeting with the members of the National Media Council, Head of the Journalist Union, Head of the Writers Union and the directors of the media establishments to discuss the ways of improving the national media in the light of the fierce media war imposed on Syria.

During the meeting, Speaker al-Laham affirmed that the national media has proven to be the voice of right, which forced the countries involved in the war on Syria to cease the transmission of the Syrian media on their satellites.

He added that the Syrian national media offered martyrs not only to defend Syria, but also to defend the Arab Nation, pointing out that the hostile countries are attacking the Syrian media because they are afraid of it.

For his part, Minister of Information stressed that the media today is more courageous and free and its platforms are available for all people, including the national opposition, adding that there are no red lines in the dialogue apart from harming Syria’s sovereignty and army.

The Minister of Information reviewed the Ministry’s strategy in the current stage and the pressure imposed on the media cadres such as the operations of kidnapping, assassination and threats.

He added that the Ministry is promoting the conception of “State Media”, and not  the “media of the authority”, which is the media that is responsible for all spectrums of the state and that is committed to its firm principles and sovereignty, in addition to touching upon the burdens and views of its people.

    National Media Council: Protecting Syrian human heritage a defense of the homeland


    DAMASCUS_ The National Media Council stressed that protecting the Syrian human heritage is a defense of the homeland threatened by groups of extremist gunmen allied with the mafias of ancient monuments, and a defense of the world human civilization.

    In a statement on Wednesday, the Council called upon the journalists, reporters, intellectuals, students and clergymen to defend the Syrian cultural identity through defending the national ancient monuments that are a symbol of this culture, indicating that the international organizations should shoulder responsibilities in protecting this human heritage as this lies at the core of the tasks of the Arab League Educational, Cultural and Scientific Organization (ALECSO), the Islamic Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (ISESCO), and the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).

    The Council saw that there must be an immediate scientific action that would put an end to the violations and thefts threatening these human and cultural milestones, calling upon the Syrians who value their heritage to be a staunch shield in defense of their heritage.

    The Council alarmed to the grave danger threatening the archeological sites, historical buildings and the Syrian museums amid the current war waged on Syria, adding that in parallel with targeting the economic, educational, service and health structure, the terrorist groups are targeting the Syrian cultural identity and world mafias are threatening the Syrian ancient treasures.

    He indicated that the barbaric targeting of Syrian antiquities is evidenced by reports on the excavations in al-Madiqe, the Krak des Chevaliers and Ebla citadels and attempts to steal the mosaic floors in Apamea and the Aramaic golden statue from Hama museum, and armed attacks on Maaret al-Nu’man museum, burning down Aleppo ancient souks, demolishing ancient churches, monasteries and mosques in Homs as the armed terrorist groups are using citadels, historical buildings and souks as barricades, making the invaluable cultural achievements a battlefield.

    ”The Syrian civilizations have endowed the Syrian society with diversity and made the Syrian spiritual structure take pride in the cohesive social fabric…this historical cultural memory is derived from the material landmarks exhibited in museums,” the statement concluded, warning of the goals of the terrorist colonial war on Syria which aims at uprooting this unequalled example of diversity.
