Western Companies Aid Assad in Killing Syrians

In the recent days, Bloomberg had a new report about western companies that aid Bastard Assaid in killing and torturing Syrians . As we said before, Bloomberg had a report about Iran and how western companies aid the savage Mullahs in killing and torturing Iranians (check Archive), and now you can see the same thing is true for Syria. The report is about monitoring the internet traffic in Syria with the help of western companies. It can be very interesting for Iranians, because we have the same situation in Iran. In fact, the Mullahs block and monitor the internet traffic with the help of western companies. The report says: “Syrias current electronic surveillance captures only a portion of the nations communications, and lacks the new systems ability to monitor all Internet traffic“, and it’s like our situation in Iran in 2007 or 2008. But the report adds: “Now NetApp storage will allow agents to archive communications for future searches or mapping of peoples contacts“. And it’s like our situation in Iran, in 2009, 2010 and 2011, when the Mullahs got aid of western companies. Unfortunately, the world thinks that the savage dictators of Iran and Syria are enemy of the west. As you know, almost all other dictatorship and savage dictators in the Middle East and Africa are friends of the west, and the world knows this matter. But the western mass media and the stupid lefts pretend that Iran’s regime and Syria’s regime are enemy of the west and the western countries are fighting against them. And that’s why the western countries have imposed dreadful sanctions on Iran (and also on Syria). Unfortunately many naive people have accepted this big lie. But now, Bloomberg’s reports can show the truth. Of course, as we said before, there are many other evidences that can prove: “The war between the Mullahs and the west is a fake and phony war”. It’s really tragic that Iranians (and also Syrians) should pay the high price of the fake and phony war between their regime and the west. While the Mullahs and their families can go to the west and invest the dirty embezzled money there, the ordinary Iranians are the victims of dreadful western sanctions, and they can not transfer money to outside Iran, or work with the foreign banks, or get visa and go to the west, or buy western products, or do many other things that are quite normal and routine in other countries. The same thing is true about Syria and Syrians, and we know that many members of Bastard Assad family live in the UK, and other western countries. Until know, Bastard Assad has killed at least 4,000 Syrians (3,000 is the old number), but the west has closed its eyes to this great tragedy. “In Syria, a banner, written in English, says: “Damn the world’s presidents and Nato leaders. How can you smell the Syrian blood, watch the people die and then sleep tonight?“, the media reported recently. It’s what Syrians say, and it’s exactly like what Iranians said in 2009, and in 2011. Anyway, lets take a look at excerpts of Bloomberg’s report:

“As Syrias crackdown on protests has had more than 3,000 lives since March, Italian technicians in telecom offices from Damascus to Aleppo have been busy equipping Assads regime with the power to intercept, scan and catalog virtually every e-mail that flows through the country. Employees of Area SpA, a surveillance company based outside Milan, are installing the system under the direction of Syrian intelligence agents, whove pushed the Italians to finish, saying they urgently need to track people, a person familiar with the project says. The Area employees have flown into Damascus in shifts this year as the violence has escalated, says the person, who has worked on the system for Area. Area is using equipment from American and European companies, according to documents obtained by Bloomberg and the person familiar with the job. The project includes Sunnyvale, California-based NetApp Inc. (NTAP) storage hardware and software for archiving e-mails; probes to scan Syrias communications network from Paris-based Qosmos SA; and gear from Germanys Utimaco Safeware AG (USA) that connects tapped telecom lines to Areas monitoring-center computers. The Italians bunk in a 3-bedroom rental apartment in a residential Damascus neighborhood near a sports stadium when they work on the system, which is in a test phase, according to the person, who requested anonymity because Area employees sign non-disclosure agreements with the company. When the system is complete, Syrian security agents will be able to follow targets on flat-screen workstations that display communications and Web use in near-real time alongside graphics that map citizens networks of electronic contacts. Such a system is custom-made for repression, says an expert. Any company selling monitoring surveillance technology to the Assad regime is complicit in human rights crimes, he says. Area, which got its start in 1996, has code-named the system Asfador. The price tag is more than 13 million euros ($17.9 million)”

“Area Chief Executive Officer Andrea Formenti says he cant discuss specific clients or contracts. Area is installing the system, which includes companys Captor monitoring-center computers, through a contract with state-owned Syrian Telecommunication Establishment, or STE. Also known as Syrian Telecom, the company is the nations main fixed-line operator. Without the Area gear, Syrias current electronic surveillance captures only a portion of the nations communications, and lacks the new systems ability to monitor all Internet traffic, say the two people who know of Syrias capabilities through their work for Area. Businesses that sell surveillance equipment to Syria should be held accountable for aiding repression, says Edward Mousa, a Syrian blogger who has fled to Sweden. Every single company who is selling monitoring technology to the Syrian government is a partner to stopping democracy in Syria, he says. They are a partner to the killing of people in Syria. They are helping the Syrian government stay in control. The European Union has imposed a series of sanctions against Syria, including a ban on arms sales and a freeze on assets of people in the regime [and these stupid sanctions are only for deceiving the naive people in the west]. The sanctions dont prohibit European companies from selling Syria the sort of equipment in Areas project [!!!!]. The U.S. has banned most American exports to Syria other than food or medicine since 2004. That means the U.S. government may need to determine if the shipment of NetApps hardware to Syria violated sanctions [!!] Syrias purchase of the system illustrates how authoritarian governments [that the western media pretend they are enemy of the west and are fighting against the west, and the naive people accept this big lie] are using Western-produced surveillance technology to track dissidents. In Iran, a Bloomberg News investigation showed, European companies provided gear to track citizens locations and communications that law [savage] Mullah security agencies would have access to.”

The U.S. is looking into reports that Syria is using technology made by Blue Coat Systems Inc. (BCSI), another company based in Sunnyvale, to censor the Internet and record browsing histories“, State Department spokeswoman said at Oct. 24 news briefing. [As we said before, Swedish hackers, Telecomix, downloaded 54 gigabytes of Syrian telecommunications data that indicated that the Blue Coat technology was being used to filter Internet in Syria. They said that these devices are clearly manufactured by Blue Coat, a big American company, and used by the Syrian regime]. The turmoil began in mid-March. Two weeks into the violence, on March 30, Italian employees of NetApp and Area exchanged e-mails in which the computer supplier gave advice to the surveillance company on how to configure equipment that had just been delivered, copies of the correspondence show. That same day, Assad addressed the parliament, blaming the protests on a conspiracy. If the battle was imposed on us today, we welcome it, he said. By then, more than 90 people had been killed in clashes. An Area schematic for NetApp Storage Cluster B, dated May 26, shows how the U.S. companys stacks of disks were being wired in computer cabinets. The schematic bears the Asfador code name as well as a cover sheet titled STE PDN Monitoring Center Project. On May 26, Assad’s security forces killed more protesters, bringing the death toll to more than 1,100 people.If Areas installation is completed as planned, Assad regime will gain the power to dip into virtually any corner of the Internet in Syria. Schematics for the system show it includes probes in the traffic of mobile phone companies and Internet service providers, capturing both domestic and international traffic. NetApp storage will allow agents to archive communications for future searches or mapping of peoples contacts, according to the documents and the person familiar with the system. The equipment has already been set up in an air-conditioned room at a telecom exchange building in the Mouhajireen neighborhood of Damascus, where about 30 metal racks hold the computers that handle the surveillance and storage, the person familiar with the installation says. Two people familiar with terms of the deal say that as a final stage of the installation, the contract stipulates Area employees will train the Syrian security agents and teaching them how to track citizens [and kill and torture them]
