Pro-Russian Media Highlights Trump Adviser
Editor’s note: the Voltaire Network was founded by the French left-wing activist Thierry Meyssan, who hails Russia for preventing the overthrow of the al-Assad regime in Syria.
Meyssan was invited to Moscow to appear on “the top three political shows on Russian television to present his analysis on the insurrections in the Arab world,” his website proudly announced. Meyssan described his network and its “Axis for Peace” project as aimed at “initiating a dialogue between world political leaders and intellectuals who want to reach a common understanding and strategy against imperialism and Zionism.” His books in English include 9/11 the Big Lie and Pentagate, which argue that Muslims were unfairly blamed for the terrorist attacks.
An “Axis for Peace” conference was held in 2005 and was newsworthy not only for the speakers and topics but who covered it. The conference was covered by Russia Today; TeleSur, the television channel of the Hugo Chavez regime in Venezuela; and Al-Jazeera, the voice of Arab terrorism and the Muslim Brotherhood. Support for the conference in the U.S. came from American Free Press, which claims to be exposing the likes of George Soros but which features interviews with such figures as anti-Israel activist Medea Benjamin as she boarded the Gaza Flotilla to support the
Palestinian terror group Hamas.
The conference final declaration read like something written in Moscow. It denounced those who “propagate theories of an international Muslim plot and fuel conflicts between civilizations” and went on to praise the Russian role in global affairs. “We salute the mediation of Russia who stands by the application of the nuclear non-proliferation treaty, and the presumption of innocence in international relations,” it said. “We call upon the UN General Assembly to support Russia’s efforts in favor of the reestablishment of a multilateral dialogue; to support its strong stance against financing terrorism, double standards in international politics and the interference in the internal affairs of sovereign states.”
