Dr Bouthaina Shaaban writes
It is of utmost importance to recognize that Gulf media stood shoulder to shoulder with the terrorists created by Zionist intelligence services to target Syria and other Arab countries, and eradicate Arab identity and civilization. In this new era, there’s no middle ground, either one stands with Arab rights and with the truth, or one stands with the agents of foreign nations who target our nation.
Mercenaries and traitors are no longer allowed to hide under the name “opposition.” Every political opposition that operates inside the country and protects its dignity, identity, and borders is a legitimate opposition that should be proud of itself.
But those who call themselves “opposition” and put themselves in the service of the Zionists, the Turks, the Saudis, and the Qataris, those should be exposed.
Here, we must salute al-Mayadeen channel, whose performance adheres to the Arab interests, and they have exposed those channels that work against the Arabs. All Arabs, intellectuals, donors, and journalists must take the chance and stand on the right side of history, and they must begin a new era for free Arab media that rises alongside a wider Arab awakening, which would give the Arab world an active role on the international scene.
Today, media is one of the mightiest weapons, and we must know how to use it to serve our Arab interest.
