The article states:

One of the most prominent German language newspapers Reported that the 
Houla massacre was conducted by sectarian rebels (the Free Syrian Army).

Victims of the massacre in Houla were members of the Alawite and Shiite 
minorities. The head of one of the Sunni families killed in Houla was a 
government supporter and participated in the parliamentary elections 
(part of the democratic reforms sweeping the country).


Aren't they aware that the UN blamed Baathist death squads for the Houla 
massacre only 12 days ago?

U.N. Panel Blames Syrian Army and Militia for Houla Massacre

I wasn't aware that Thierry Meyssan had gone to work for Amnesty.
