Julian Röpcke, or often referred to by a hashtag as #JihadiJulian, works for German tabloid Bild. He has been at the forefront of legitimizing  terrorist groups as viable options to the Syrian government if they were to collapse.

With work exposing the falsifications surrounding Madaya, Julian took a back foot from the starvation claims and changed his agenda. Instead, he attempts to portray the women, children, men and elderly who starved for months as actors paid  by the government from surrounding towns.

This disgusting gesture undermines the suffering. Thankfully, Russia Today’s Murad Gazdiev who is currently on the ground in Syria exposes this lie on the following video.

  1. If you think Bildt is “unaware” of jihadi-julian and his actions, you should check up the history of the publication.
    Bildt was created by Axel Springer, a german “journalist” who created the media-empire Axel Springer SE; the mother company of Bildt.
    The company follow strict political guidelines from 67; claiming to be a liberal world-view:

    To uphold liberty and law in Germany, a country belonging to the Western family of nations, and to further the unification of Europe.
    To promote reconciliation of Jews and Germans and support the vital rights of the State of Israel.
    To support the Transatlantic Alliance, and solidarity with the United States of America in the common values of free nations.
    To reject all forms of political extremism.
    To uphold the principles of a free social market economy.

    This should make all his writing much clearer; he is paid to do this job and he does it quite well. Writing whitewash articles for terrorists in Syria does not conflict in any way with these guidelines as long as you read them correctly.
    “common values of free nations” does not equal the Nation State system with National supremacy over own territory. It is a political term used to define nations under the US empire. It is the common-way of writing Pax Americana; “The American Peace”.
    “Support the vital rights of the State of Israel” speaks for itself.

    “To reject all forms of political extremism” again; not meaning what you first think. “Political extremism” is a self-defined term that we can only assume definitions of based on their 5 political guidelines & that they call them “liberal”. 1 might argue that the vital rights for israel (a state exclusively to the self-defined racial group of jews) might be an example of political extremism, but not Axel Springer and by extension; none of their owned publications.

    Instead of calling Julian a nut job just ask for a copy of his job-description. What is he exactly hired to do and how are the 5 guidelines from Axel Springer influencing his work; or a basis for employment.

    Anyways this is how all corporate journalists should be treated. They are politically motivated entities that throw huge amount of work and money into presenting themselves as objective; solely on the basis of not being “state owned”. But I will take state-owned propaganda outlets any day over a billionaires private megaphone to spew tailor-made propaganda to promote political policies that are actively hidden to the consumer by using humanitarian excuses with emotional triggers.
    Not that I care for either.

  2. Related to blockade of the civilians, Julian tweeted that RT denied Murad Gazdiev with quoting the Khaled Mohammed, a Madaya doctor (Video at 3:45)
    “They were turned away at the checkpoint controlled by Hezbollah and the Syrian regime”.
