I admit

I admit that I have made an error.
Science has conquered me and proven that I have at times been writing that which was proven scientifically inaccurate.
On this point, a few months ago I wrote that the bodies discovered in the area of Majdal Anjar may be the remains of martyrs who died during the Zionist rancorous bombardment on the international road of Beirut/Damascus at the time of the Zionist invasion of Lebanon in 1982.
My writing was not based on substantiated evidence. Instead, it was based on personal experience of my own and the testimony of the some witnesses as well as the topic of a fellow journalist whose professional integrity I trust.
I simply adopted this viewpoint in order to remind the people of the possibility of the potential existence of these bodies in that area, unlike the sheer “truth” about which the drummers banged their drums and the pipers blew their pipes at the time—since they wanted to tie these bodies to the “tutelage reign”. They also banned any speech from waiting the investigation and scientific pursue of the truth irrespective of the intimidation and defamation that was practiced against the people and against those who use their brains before being drawn into the campaign of incitement against Syria.
However, the facts failed me.
How could I have known that these bodies have existed in Tal El-Nabi Auzeir for 300 years, before the emergence of this parasitic February class that is investing everything, even the bones of the dead?
How could I wait the results of the investigation while I witnessed the invasion of the misguiding information and the flood of the informative propaganda that overwhelmed almost everything?
I admit that I have made an error.
But they have sinned. Will they admit?
