White Helmets Busted on Video Celebrating Slaughter of Syrian Civilians Alongside Al-Qaeda

white helmetswhite helmets

The White Helmets, a Nobel Peace Prize-nominated group that has been painted as a selfless “humanitarian group” by the media, was once again caught on video helping the same terrorist group that is hurting the civilians they claim to protect. This time, however, the video was ironically put together by Now This as a pro-White Helmet piece.

The group, which was the subject of an Oscar-winning documentary in February, is described by IMDB, “a group of indomitable first responders [who] risk their lives to rescue victims from the rubble” in war-torn Syria “as daily airstrikes pound civilian targets.”

However, a recent post from Vanessa Beeley, the associate editor of 21st Century Wire, painted the White Helmets in a very different light.

The video appears to show the famed White Helmets standing with Al-Qaeda and celebrating the massacre of Syrian civilians in Idlib. Ironically, Now This put out a propaganda piece attempting to paint those who show the misdeeds of the White Helmets as Russian agents and conspiracy theorists. However, the proof is in the pudding.

In the video, Now This shows a brief and out of context clip at the 3:18 mark. In the clip, White Helmets are seen celebrating with Al-Qaeda. To clarify the context, Beely tweeted still from the video she shot.

In the images, we can clearly see the “hero” White Helmets standing alongside terrorists and celebrating. But the is more. In the Now This video, Beeley points out a scene that appears to show an armed Al Nusra militant wiping the nose of a White Helmet.

Luckily, it appears that most people aren’t buying the lies. The top comments on the Now This video show the reality.

To those paying attention to Syria, the White Helmets aiding or even participating in terrorism should come as no surprise.

A Twitter post from earlier this year by user ‘Walid’ appears to show the famed White Helmets taking care of injured Al-Qaeda fighters who were recently wounded on the Syrian battlefront. This is just the latest in a series of videos, which has served as evidence that the White Helmets are not what they appear.

While helping injured people, regardless of what ‘side’ they are fighting for is noble, it is important to point out that the white helmets never help those injured by ISIS. Countless Syrian citizens have come forward to expose the group’s utter lack of care for injured men, women, and children alike — while helping only those who are friendly to the resistance.

The first such scandalous revelation came about when a video was uploaded to social media demonstrating the WH staging an attack reportedly carried out by Syrian government forces. When the group discovered their video flub, they quickly stated they were simply carrying out a mannequin challenge. Few bought their explanation, yet their documentary later went on to win an Oscar.

The group also came under fire in June when video surfaced that showed members of the White Helmets assisting in disposing of the dead bodies of Syrian soldiers. The US-backed “aid workers” were seen celebrating their kill whilst holding the heads of the dead.

As it stands, the White Helmets are heavily funded by the U.S. and the U.K., as well as many other international entities. That may be the reason they always worked in rebel-held areas of the greater Syrian conflict. The WH serve as a de facto propaganda wing of the West to sway public opinion into supporting regime change in Syria.

As proof, one only has to look to the story of Omran Daqneesh, a Syrian boy reportedly pulled from the rubble of a bombed out building. Daqneesh’s image was broadcast around the world and used as a propaganda tool against Syrian President Bashar Al Assad.

The truth was later revealed by The Free Thought Project and others that it is very likely the opposition itself destroyed the very building in which Daqneesh was residing, then used his image to promote the myth he was attacked by Syrian forces.

As TFTP reported:

“But it was a lie — from mass media’s parroted claims the boy had escaped an airstrike within an inch of his life, to bandages eventually wrapped around Omran’s head — virtually none of the narrative stemming from the starkly persistent image bore the weight of truth.”

According to The New York Times, Mr. Daqneesh told the real story of what happened immediately following the bombing. He never supported the opposition and appeared on Syrian state-run media to proclaim his support for Assad. He described how the White Helmets used his son as a propaganda tool without his permission.

”They took Omran, got him to the ambulance, where they filmed him,” Mr. Daqneesh said. “It was against my will. I was still upstairs in the house.”Mr. Daqneesh said he was pressured by opposition activists after Omran was released from the hospital to “talk against the Syrian regime and the state,” adding that he had been offered money to do so, which he refused.”

With the latest Twitter revelation, one can draw their own conclusions of whether or not the group is simply giving humanitarian aid, or whether its members are taking part in the Syrian/Iraqi genocide. According to Salon, they’re already beheading people on film. So much for that impartial humanitarian aid!

UK taxpayers hand £200mn to Syrian opposition & White Helmets, journalist tells RT (VIDEO)

Speaking to George Galloway on his RT show Sputnik, Beeley said the funds were released from the UK’s Conflict, Stability and Security Fund (CSSF) to support the Syrian opposition. She said part of that money was used by the White Helmets to feed media outlets that are rarely in Syria and offer a false narrative of what is happening there.

“If we look at the narrative produced from Aleppo… it never came from the 1.5 million majority in West Aleppo that was government-held and government-protected, but who lost over 11,000 civilians from mortar fire from East Aleppo – so from the Western-backed terrorists in East Aleppo.

“The narrative came from East Aleppo and it came from affiliates of Nusra Front, which included the White Helmets and from citizen activists that had been produced in Gaziantep [in Turkey], with money coming in from the UK government,” she added.

“[The UK government] actually admitted very recently that almost £200 million [US$260 million] has gone from this public fund into funding the Syrian opposition inside Syria.

“So in other words, all of these journalists, media activists, who were trained in Turkey and then infiltrated back into Syria, to product the propaganda, and that includes the White Helmets.”

The White Helmets have been hailed by the Western media as “peace-bearing heroes” who save lives. A Netflix documentary film praising the group as “unarmed and neutral civilian volunteers” even won an Oscar for best documentary short feature in February.

However, the group has long been plagued by allegations of having ties with terrorist groups. Russia’s Foreign Ministry spokeswoman, Maria Zakharova, said in April that the White Helmets are involved in covering up terrorist crimes.

“The White Helmets not only feel at home on territories controlled by Al-Nusra Front and Islamic State [IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL], but also openly express positive attitudes towards them, providing them with information and even financial assistance,” she said at the time.

Beeley has previously told RT that Aleppo residents, who have lived under terrorist rule for five years, “witnessed the White Helmets working alongside Al-Nusra Front as well as participating in executions and torture and working as an Al-Nusra Front civil defense unit.”

She went on to say that the “White Helmets is a major construct funded by the UK, the US, the EU and the Gulf States that promulgates the propaganda against the Syrian government and the Syrian Arab Army,” and that this can partly explain the media silence when such scandals emerge.

In June, a member of the White Helmets was caught on camera helping a group of unidentified militants disposing of bodies of beheaded Syrian Army or pro-government soldiers in Daraa province.

In another incident in May, footage emerged showing several members of the group’s rescue team helping to remove a body of a man shot dead by rebels in the town of Jasim, also in Daraa province.

Moscow slams Reuters for citing al-Qaeda/White Helmets as ‘evidence’ of Russian airstrikes killing civilians

    

The widely discredited White Helmets still have an audience at Reuters UK.

Russia has slammed Reuters UK for a breach of journalistic integrity, after the organization published outright lies which have been derived from the propaganda arm of al-Qaeda in Syria.

Western governments, including those of the US and UK, have engaged in a concerted effort to publicly rehabilitate al-Qaeda, the notorious Gulfi funded Takfiri jihadist group which the US held responsible for the 9/11 atrocities. It was the group al-Qaeda in Iraq which eventually became ISIS and in Syria al-Qaeda’s Syrian branch commonly known as al-Nusra, has been responsible for countless acts of barbaric in parts of western and central Syria.

Enter a fake charity/aid group called White Helmets, sometimes confusingly referred to as Syrian Civil Defense. The group has no affiliation from real aid groups in Syria such as Syria’s actual civil defense service, nor are they at all affiliated with the UN recognized White Cross and White Crescent aid groups.

Among other things, White Helmets have been exposed by Russia as staging chemical attacks and staging them poorly at that. At various times, White Helmets actors were seen handling bodies that were supposedly infected with toxic gas, without gloves or proper masks. One image also showed a White Helmet actor smoking a cigarette in an area which was supposed to be cloaked in gas.

Even more seriously, the group has been exposed participating in the killing of children as well as the exploitation of children.

The group which has been photographed carrying al-Qaeda flags during savage celebrations has been named and shamed multiple times by the Russian Foreign Ministry and Russian Defense Ministry.

In October of last year, RT’s CrossTalk explored the extent of the dangerous fraud that is White Helmets when Peter Lavelle interviewed Patrick Henningsen, Vanessa Beeley and Eva Bartlett, three journalists who helped expose the sham to the wider public.

After the Battle of Aleppo was won in 2016, al-Qaeda’s fortunes in Syria were dashed. Today, one of the only areas in Syria where al-Qaeda and therefore the White Helmets still have a presence is in Idlib Governorate. Idlib is currently home to a civil war between al-Qaeda/al-Nusra and various factions of the FSA as well as some jihadist groups linked to the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood.

In an effort to pacify the region, the most recent meeting of the Astana Group created a new de-escalation zone in Idlib Governorate which is largely policed by Turkey. The new zone, like other de-escalation zones, allows for the continued targeting of al-Qaeda and ISIS.

Russia has recently struck al-Qaeda forces in Idlib who martyred civilians in Latakia, when they began firing rockets at the birthplace of the Assad family, the mountainous town of Qardaha.

The reach of White Helmets has gone down in-line with the reduction of al-Qaeda as a formidable force in Syria. However, as Russia works to help Syria squeeze the group out of Idlib, they decided to engage in yet another propaganda drive against Russia and Syria. Al-Qaeda/White Helmets has accused the Russian Aerospace Forces of targeting urban neighborhoods and killing civilians even though the strikes targeted weapons outposts and storage facilitates away from populated areas.

While lies from groups like White Helmets are less and less noticed, UK Reuters picked up the propaganda as though it was deriving from a reliable source. It is also crucial to realize that the al-Qaeda/White Helmets report was released on the day Russian President Vladimir Putin lands in Ankara for talks with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Al-Qaeda is clearly worried about Turkey’s pivot to Russia and away from western backed terrorist factions in Syria.

Russia’s Defense Ministry Spokesman Major General Igor Konashenkov has blasted Reuters UK and others who picked up the story as falling victim to fake news.

He stated:

“Syria’s Civil Defense which UK news agency Reuters cites, reporting of alleged civilian deaths, is the same thing as the White Helmets. The attempt of the British to pass these war scammers off as a new brand of objective information sources is a manipulation for amateurs.

The Russian Aerospace Forces’ planes to not carry out airstrikes on residential neighborhoods in settlements to avoid civilian casualties. The targets are terrorist bases, armored vehicles and munitions depots, identified with unmanned devices and confirmed through other channels.

This week, all airstrikes of Russian planes in the province of Idlib were concentrated on equipment, reserves and groups of Nusra Front militants who were trying to rescue terrorists from the Akerbat encirclement in eastern Hama with a sudden offensive. The actions of Russian planes in Syria derailed this operation, and the terrorists participating in it were destroyed.”

This video of the airstrikes, clearly corroborates Russia’s statement. It is apparent from the footage that Russia is not targeting an urban or residential area.

The racist Sunni supremacist White Helmets have simply produced more propaganda to bolster their increasingly hopeless cause. The real shame is with so-called ‘respectable’ outlets who have reported blatant propaganda as fact.

Seven members of Syria's White Helmets shot dead by unknown gunmen

Seven member of the Syrian White Helmets rescue group were shot dead by unknown gunmen on Saturday, sparking a manhunt and deep suspicions in the rebel-controlled province of Idlib.

The men were killed in their operations centre in the village of Sarmin at dawn on Saturday. Two of their vehicles as well as several of their distinctive white helmets were stolen, the group said.  

Many White Helmet volunteers have been killed in airstrikes during the six year Syrian war but opposition activists said it was the first time that members had been shot dead like this. 

Photographs from the scene showed the volunteers’ bodies lying across the floor of the centre and blood splashed over the logo of the White Helmets group. All had been shot execution-style at close range.

“The heart is saddened, there are tears in our eyes for you departure,” said Raed al-Saleh, the founder of the White Helmets. “May God strengthen us and make us patient for facing this tragedy.”

One of the men killed was Mohammed Abu Kifah, who appeared in a widely-shared video last year where he wept with emotion after rescuing a baby girl from the rubble of a bombed-out building. 

The White Helmets have been lauded by Western countries for saving civilian lives in opposition areas in Syria and in 2016 they narrowly missed out on winning the Nobel Peace prize. 

But the group also operates in areas controlled by jihadists and supporters of the Assad regime regularly accuse them of allying with terrorists.

Idlib province is now mainly controlled by Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), an Islamist rebel group that is dominated by jihadists linked to al-Qaeda. 

Activists in Idlib said they were baffled by the killings but did not think that HTS was responsible. The group has not targeted White Helmets in the past. 

One theory was that agents of the Assad regime had killed the men to create suspicion and distrust between rival rebel groups. 

The murdered White Helmets were buried on Saturday in Idlib - Credit: OMAR HAJ KADOUR/AFP/Getty ImagesThe murdered White Helmets were buried on Saturday in Idlib - Credit: OMAR HAJ KADOUR/AFP/Getty Images

HTS recently fought an open battle against Ahrar al-Sham, another prominent rebel group, and there is lingering distrust in Idlib as a result. 

“The ones who did this are clever. They want to make conflicts worse between the rebel groups and show that there is no security and no safety in the opposition areas,” said Abdulkafe al-Hamdo, an English teacher in Idlib. 

Another theory is that the killings were the work of a criminal gang, who wanted to steal equipment from the White Helmets centre. Two vans were taken from the centre as well as several motorcycles and some walkie-talkie equipment. 

One of the vans was later found burned out on the edge of a field several miles from the centre.

The White Helmets centre is close to several other houses in the village of Sarmin but neighbours said they had not heard any gunfire during the night. That raises the possibility the White Helmets were killed with silenced weapons. 

The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) has released videos in the past showing its fighters using guns equipped with silencers. The Assad regime also has access to silencers through its allies in Russia and Syria.   

Mr al-Hamdo said members of the group had last been seen on Whatsapp at around 1am, suggesting they were killed sometime after that. 

Gareth Bayley, Britain’s special representative for Syria, condemned the killings. 

HTS has a network of checkpoints around Idlib province and activists said they hoped that the group’s fighters would be able to catch the killers. 

Idlib is one of the last major opposition strongholds in Syria and faces intense bombardment by the Assad regime and its Russian allies.

Many of the fighters and civilians the opposition areas of Aleppo fled to Idlib after the city fell in late 2016.

GRAPHIC: ‘Attack’ on White Helmets Quarters in Idlib Leaves 7 Dead

White Helmets Sarmin Attack – blurred

Al-Qaeda’s ‘Civil Defense’ aka White Helmets issued a circular claiming their quarters in Idlib countryside has been attacked by unknown armed group leaving 7 killed and material stolen.

The notorious ‘White Helmets’ known best for faking rescue operations always following Syrian or Russian army attacks on al-Qaeda’s bases in north and northwest Syria has claimed in a circular that ‘an unknown armed group’ attacked their quarters in the city of Sarmin in Idlib countryside, northwest of Syria.

On the day of the fake Civil Defense in Syria receiving an award in South Korea, the UK’s MI6 founded and sponsored organization White Helmets stated the attack has left 7 of its on duty members killed or ‘eliminated’ as per their statement, and 2 Van vehicles were stolen and other gears.

White Helmet’s director Raed al-Saleh in his circular called on check points erected by terrorist groups in the north of Syria to confiscate any van owned by his organization without an official mission sealed with the organization’s stamp.

The Oscars 2017 winner released what appears to be a graphic image of the ‘killed members’ swimming in what they assume is human blood. We are highly skeptical of adopting their story as in most cases earlier the same organization has staged traumatic footage and iconic images used in propaganda against the Syrian state and its allies, especially the Russian Federation.

image-White Helmets Sarmin Attack - blurred

In one of their claims, the White Helmets managed to trick the US president Trump into bombing a Syrian Army Airbase in retaliation to a movie they filmed of a claimed ‘aftermath of a chemical attack in Khan Sheikhon’ in the same Idlib province. Trump has since worked as al-Qaeda’s tool. Idlib is now the hotbed of expelled terrorists from all over Syria and from Arsal in neighboring Lebanon.

The case of Omran Daqneesh is another fake propaganda created by an iconic picture taken of the young child in an ambulance after what this al-Qaeda’s ‘Civil Defense’ claimed to be an air raid on the boy’s house. The child and his father’s interview refutes categorically the claims and accuse the ‘White Helmets’ of trying to blackmail him to frame the Syrian state in the fake attack.

BUSTED: Video Appears to Show White Helmets Aiding Al-Qaeda Fighters

Everyone should wear helmets. So why pick on cyclists?

Author Todd Babin wonders why there this obsession about cyclists and helmets. So do I.

Everybody apparently has an opinion about bicycle helmets, often with drivers of cars yelling out the window, “Get a helmet!” and lazy journalists who might be covering a crash where someone is squished by a cement mixer still turning it into a discussion about helmets. I stopped writing about the issue a few years back when my late mom took a spill and hit her head. Now I think everyone should wear a helmet, particularly drivers, who have the most head injuries, and seniors, who fall down a lot. I think of Mom and now wear a helmet most of the time (on my bike, not when I am walking).

Tom Babin, a Calgary journalist and author who writes about bikes, recently made a video about urban cycling and didn’t wear a helmet, and the reaction was quick: “Don’t you think wearing a helmet at least for the video would have showed a much better example of responsible bicycle riding?” Tom responded with one of the most thoughtful and articulate discussions of the issue that I have read on his blog, Shifter.

In a nutshell: I wear a helmet in situations in which I feel the risk of being struck by a car or the risk of crashing is great.

He then really gets into the oddness of the whole issue, the statistics about who gets killed or has head injuries, and shakes his unhelmeted head.

cause of head injuriesRebel Metropolis/via

..you are hella more likely to be struck by a car by simply walking the streets than riding a bike on them. Yet only cycling is perceived as dangerous enough to require a helmet. It makes no sense, yet helmet use has gone from the fringes to orthodoxy in a generation. It’s now so ingrained in many people that it’s unfathomable that someone would choose to ride without a helmet. Yet the idea of wearing a helmet as a pedestrian is so absurd as to be laughable. The most dangerous thing you will do in your day, statistically speaking, is drive a car, yet where is the helmet debate there? Such a suggestion would get you laughed out of the room. Yet, if we were to require helmets while driving, we would almost assuredly save more lives than if we require them on bikes.

Tom notes that the campaign to get people to wear helmets creates a perception that cycling is dangerous, and scares people off bikes. He probably hasn’t read Tara Goddard’s new research yet, or he would note that that is entirely the point; drivers do not want bikes in their way and will do everything to make it more miserable, from helmet laws to mandatory licensing.

The real issue here is a battle over pavement and who controls it.

The other thing that bothers me about this whole debate is the way it distracts from the real issues around bicycle safety…. it’s beyond debate that building a strong network of protected bike lanes creates a safer environment for people on bikes. If you really care about bike safety, this is where you should focus your efforts.

Sure, if you fall off your bike you are better off with a helmet. But Tom is right: why single out cyclists? Everybody is better off wearing a helmet if they fall. I mean really, coal miners even wear them in the White House. What is going to fall on their head there? Nothing, because in the White House, they are symbols. They have taken on a meaning that is bigger than their actual function. The same can be said about bike helmets.

There are certain tropes that you read over and over. “The driver stayed at the scene” is in every news article where a pedestrian or cyclist is killed by a car, because that means the driver didn’t mean it and “it was an accident.” The child “darted out.” When have you ever heard the verb “darted” when it wasn’t in a story about a car hitting a kid? And of course, “the cyclist wasn’t wearing a helmet,” which gives drivers licence to crush them to death under their wheels. It is not about safety, it is about semiotics.

fedex laneLife in the Fedex Lane last week in Toronto/ Lloyd Alter/CC BY 2.0

I live in a city with crappy bike infrastructure, almost no truly separated lanes, and the few bike lanes that we have have been co-opted by the delivery companies. Oh, and streetcar tracks. I wear a helmet. But as Tom concludes: “If you spot me, or anybody else, riding without one, all I ask is that you stop before trying to shame them and give some thought to the real issues around bike safety that impact all of us.”

I swore I was never going to write about bike helmets again but Tom Babin wrote such a good piece that I had to. Read it all on Shifter.

White Helmets Beheadings of Soldiers: Ugly Background

white helmets
Capitol Hill had grotesque video of slaughtered Syrian soldiers censored as is difficult to support blatant savagery of White Helmets

The ugly background behind the White Helmets beheadings of Syrian soldiers in Daraa is a bit more grisly than most geopolitical atrocities.  It was launched with the impunity afforded by US President Donald J. Trump coming out on the side of terrorists against Syria. Its foundation was laid when he cheered the rabid Erdogan’s invasion and occupation of Jarabulus. More concrete was poured when UN Ambassador Nikki Haley announced US support for the fraudulent JIM anti-Syria propaganda.  The horrors became cemented when Trump bombed Ash Sha’irat, to make al Qaeda great again.  He flaunted the infinite war criminal exceptionalism of the American presidency by shooting down a Syrian air force jet — from an illegal US base in…Syria.  At this writing, the Syrian pilot is currently held hostage by the US foreign merc  militia, HSD .  Also at this writing, dupes of US orchestrated gang v. countergang are blind to the fact that the HSD is the US created foreign mercenary militia illegally in the SAR.

[WARNING:  GRAPHIC AND GRISLY VIDEOS AND PHOTOS]

Since the beginning of the foreign terrorist war imposed on Syria, the takfiri have proudly uploaded their atrocities to the internet.  It is a bad habit that the most impatient among them have been unable to break.  The 20 June heinous video of the decapitations of Syrian soldiers caused the CIA and MI6 funded death squad White Helmets to issue a tepid denunciation, though not of the beheadings  — more likely a reminder for the savages to remove helmets, tee shirts, and other WH identifying markers.  WH always has a statement excuse on hand:  They were there as a courtesy — during a reputed public execution — to immediately take the body to prepare for funeral. The mannequin freeze was just a way of letting off steam. WH has never explained not owning a stethoscope, not knowing CPR, not knowing spinal precautions, or why it supported the attempt to destroy al Fijah water spring.

DEATH SQUAD WHITE HELMETS FAKE DISMISSALS

There was actually no need for the death squads to have announced the “dismissal” of one of their ‘volunteers,’ as NATO media completely ignored the atrocity, busily involved in the gang v. countergang operations involving ‘rightwing’ media concern over innocent Trump falling prey to deep state machinations, and neolib media committed to the return of the McCarthy witch hunts and obsessed with rightwing concern over deep state (simply another term for what Eisenhower called the “Military industrial complex” in his Farewell address), and essential outrage that overweight advisor Bannon “fat shamed” press liaison Spicer.

NATO msm had absolutely no interest in this hideous video of savages cutting off the heads of martyred soldiers:

The following photo is from a White Helmets/al Nusra rally in Idlib, cheering the takeover of the region by the terrorist gang still on the US terror list.  Left, in yellow vest is takfiri Muawiya Agha Hassan.

Hassan was fake dismissed after showing up in this heinous video of kidnapped Syrian Arab Army soldiers who were tortured and executed.

Subsequently, Hassan appeared as White Helmets photographer, in Idlib.

Hassan also managed a selfie in al Rashidin, prior to the massacre of around 130 civilians released from 3 years of captivity, exchanged for terrorists.   The slaughter was too great to be completely ignored by NATO media, so it was rearranged to be made into a propaganda attack against Syria (‘forced displacement’ fraud), and used as another bloody fundraiser by SCAMS.   CNN — terrorists most trusted name in news — introduced another terrorist sculpted into hero, a magician who had previously been interviewed from Khan Sheikhoun and pre-liberated Aleppo.

Soon, however, we can anticipate a new round of massive anti-Syria propaganda, as the WH have begun the choreography of ‘rescuing’ civilians in Daraa.  Less than one month ago, the SAA had launched a campaign to shut down al Qaeda in Daraa.

THE UGLY BACKGROUND OF WHITE HELMETS BEHEADINGS:  TERRORISTS WERE AWAITING MORE TOWS FROM US

AltISIS: US & alQaeda troops both illegally in Syria

The US has been providing terrorists in Syria with tube launched, optically tracked wire guided missiles since April 2014.   On 17 May, the terrorist gang of Mahal Thawraaweer  thanked US for 20 trucks — some loaded with TOWS — to be used to murder Syrian soldiers in Deir Ezzor — mere days after the SAA foiled an ISIS attack on the airport. How much more obvious does the US/ISIS collaboration need to be?

Take a look at this video, proudly uploaded by the terrorist gang Ahar Horan; consider this ugly background made possible by US providing weapons to the savages to martyr Syrian soldiers, defending their homeland from foreign backed human garbage.  Note the demonic, sadoerotic joy of the killers.  Note the atrocities, their stark reality, devoid of any Hollywood FX production, used to pimp war and war crimes against Syria.  Compare it to the Hollywood extravaganza when the Jordanian war criminal pilot  was shot down by the friendly fire of the boobs on the ground UAE war criminal pilot.

Oops, sorry! The ghastly video was removed, after being viewed more than 12,000 times. YouTube claimed that its violence breached fraudulent ‘standards.’  The truth is that terrorist supporters in Congress can’t hashtag #SaveDaraa when the demons they want to ‘save’ are murderers of Syrian Arab Army soldiers, truck drivers who take the soldiers’ bodies to a trash dump, where they are beheaded, like cabbages.  SyriaNews shares instead, screengrabs from the takfiri video.

Terrorist ‘fighter,’ supported by the newly created monsters of  Congress gang, proudly holds the head of a murdered Syrian soldier. Note the blood all over this white truck.  In the censored video, the left tail light was broken, as was the tail light in the white truck at the dump site.

Imagine if western soldiers were so massacred, brutalized, tossed onto a truck and taken to dump to have their corpses further mutilated by decapitation.

Imagine, also that this is what Congress demon Kinzinger is supporting. A previously unknown representative, he is gaining national prominence as a talking head on CNN — terrorists most trusted name in news — re-rounding the good old McCarthy witch hunts, braying over evidence-less hacking of US elections, and also disputing former SoS operative Nuland’s bragging that the US had spent $5 billion bipartisan dollars on the Nazimaidan coup against the Ukraine.

Kinzinger has done nothing to improve the standard of living in his home state, Illinois, Illinois whose per capita income of a meager $41,000 is well below the US national average of $56,000.  No matter, though, as he is a war whore, a representative who represents only the interest of the military industrial complex that supports perpetual war.

ANTI-SYRIA INCEST AMONG WHITE HELMETS, EU,  & unSNC

In order to see — with clarity — the anti-Syria, incestuous relationships among EU countries, various terrorists gangs, and the mostly Syria-less Syrian National Coalition (later renamed) one must understand that the European Union was created by traitors of countries in this continent, traitors who brought together the international financier oligarchy, to destroy national sovereignty. Previous, independent countries have been forced to accept a common currency (UK refused to submit to this affront), and a outsourced, collective border patrol.  Though FRONTEX — Frontières extérieures — has only been named as official border patrol for the EU, in October 2016, it was founded in 2004, went ‘live’ in ’05, and has been involved in human trafficking (with the UAE)  since at least mid-2015, when complaints arose of other criminals moving in on its boat people trafficking.

white-helmets
FRONTEX previously competed with Libyan smugglers, now also competing with NGO smugglers. Impressive outsource of border protection.

On 4 April, scant hours after al Nusra declared Syria used chemical weapons in Khan Sheikhoun, Federica Mogherini dictated that the “regime” was ‘responsible for the awful chemical attack.’  It was of no concern for any NATO medium to mention that there was no time for an investigation into whether there was a ‘chemical attack,’ nor the lack of diplomacy in decreeing culpability for that which had not been shown to have happened.

white-helmets
Mere hours after Nusra & White Helmets announced a chemical attack, EU’s Morgherini condemned Syria as guilty

Morgherini is the High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security.  The elite tend to use the word “high,” to distinguish themselves from us peons of the world.  Morgherini went a step further, after condemning the SAR — proud of her lack of evidence — by warmly receiving terrorist supporter, Anas Abdah, at the headquarters of the European Commission, on 6 April.

white-helmets
Syria-hater Morgherini warmly greeted terrorist sympathizer Anas Abdah at EC headquarters

At the time of this meeting, Abdah was the president of the NATO and Gulfie supported NCSROF, previously named the “Syrian National Coalition.” Abdah followed the stoner Turkemen  Khoja as hoax leader (Khoja followed al Jarba, a convicted drug dealer and suspected pimp).  The NCSROF as SNC was founded in Doha, Qatar, which is not Syria.

Though Wikipedia reports it is headquartered in Idlib, none of these NATO and Gulfie sponsored suits has been photographed amidst Jabhat al Nusra and the White Helmets. Their election hoaxes are always held in Istanbul, which is in Turkey, not in Syria, and their website reports Istanbul as headquarters.

white-helmets
Who funds these parasites in suits? Gulfies tyrannies, US & EU taxpayers?

The same sources which claim Abdah was born in Syria, admit — albeit in fine print — that he lived in Jordan from age 13 through 24, when he settled in the UK, eventually forming the Movement for Justice and Development in Syria.  Headquartered in London, UK (also not Syria), it was founded two years before NATO inflicted ‘Arab Spring’ on the SAR.

Why is a 50 year old man who has spent most of his life not in Syria, to be an honored guest of the EU? Why also, was the gang of terrorists in suits, none of whom live in Syria, recognized as the sole, legitimate representatives of the Syrian people, by 30 countries and absolute monarchies?

Colonialists who funded takfiri terror against the SAR recognize the head-choppers as ‘sole & legitimate representatives’ of their victims.

NATO & Gulfies do not recognize the elected Dr. Bashar al Assad as Syria’s president

One day after the Morgherini-Abdah meeting, the MEP head banned Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Ayman Soussan from attending a conference on Syria.  al Nusra and White Helmets claim of GB was the reason given, despite there being no time in which to launch any investigation.  The ban was 6 weeks before the OPCW‘s first report, the fake one in which this watchdog gang admitted having sent no one to investigate Khan Sheikhoun, because it is overrun by terrorists. Considering the worth of takfiri promises were demonstrated in the slaughter of 130 Syrian civilians in al Rashidin, OPCW not going to Khan Sheikhoun was an act of self-preservation, though it does not explain the hypocritical lies in its May report to the UN:  Why should it take the word of the same terrorists that it fears?

France’s new president, neolib supporter of the EU, Emmanuel Macron has also been clear on his anti-Syria stance. While campaigning before the French Association for the Paralyzed, he turned his back on the handicapped, literally, and announced his desire to create a kangaroo court to try President al Assad for the GB hoax claimed by al Nusra.

On 30 May, immediately after a state meeting with Vladimir Putin, during which he accused two Russian media of behaving like “organs of influence, of propaganda and of lying propaganda” (imagine if he had lost) in the French election, Macron held a surprise meeting with suited terrorist, Riad Hijab. Hijab, hens’ teeth rare actual Syrian, was Prime Minister of the SAR, until being dumped from the position, in August 2012. This traitor then fled to Jordan, before fleeing to luxury housing in Doha, Qatar (not Syria), where he co-founded the mostly free of Syrians NCSROF. More money, and a better title was found in Riyadh, Saudi occupied Arabia, where Hijab now resides, and enjoys the absurd appellation of High Negotiation Committee head, a position selected for him in December 2015.

Macron stirred the hearts of the geopolitically naive — or, rather, the willful and woeful dupes — when he recently announced that Syria had the right to decide its leaders.  The dupes ignored the fine print of his colonialist red line — bien sûr — of believing the White Helmets’ GB story.  The French have never forgiven Syria for throwing out the French Mandate occupiers.  Let us not forget that Hollande was willing to breach EU sanctions, in order to fund and arm terrorists against Syria.

A CLOSER LOOK AT TERRORIST NCSROF & THE STETHOSCOPE-LESS WHITE HELMETS

The current ‘secretary general’ of the NCSROF is Nazir Hakim.  Elected to this position by the NATO and Gulfie sponsored gaggle of suits in Istanbul, this Muslim Brotherhood member is reputed to have been born in Aleppo, 1950.  He emigrated to France when he was 26.  According to the Carnegie Middle East Center’s 2012 mini-biography, Hakim was/is “president of the European Institute for Humanity Studies in Paris, the general manager of Al-Kindi private school in Paris, the technical manager of ST Fine Electronics Company, and the current vice-president of the Union of Islamic Organizations of France.”  Being France-based of course makes him one of the sole and legitimate reps of the Syrian people, in this brave new, Orwellian world.

On 6 May, Hakim was ‘elected’ secretary general of the NCSROF.

On 19 May, Hakim was the guest of the IB Consulting gang at a conference of “academics and military experts” in Seoul.  This meeting was organized by IB, a Blackwater-type private mercenary gang.  For those suffering short-term memory deficits, during the reign of Bush/Cheneyac, Blackwater was considered an abomination. Under Obama, war crimes were given such legitimacy by the neo-lib movement, that few demonstrators came to protest CEO Erik Prince when he was given the Philadelphia Free  Library to host a breakfast and book-signing in November 2013 (most of the activists were Vietnam veterans against war).

Prince also received free security from the PPD.

How Hakim became an expert on non-conventional security is irrelevant; all that matters is that IB supports the NATO and Gulfie run NCSROF and that this terrorist gang should participate in all such international meetings (called to order by such private military gangs).

Et voila!  Less than two months after the adoptive Frenchie was wined and dined in Seoul, by an independent mercenary gang, Hakim was back in Istanbul, calling for the [further] military support for the fake first responders, the White Helmets — who, despite tens of millions from the CIA and MI6, still do not own a stethoscope, do not know CPR, do not know spinal precautions.

Perhaps IB Consultancy mercs can provide them with military protection since these weapons do not suffice?

2o June was the date that the grisly video of murdered Syrian soldiers whose heads were severed by the humanitarian White Helmets and their Nusra friends was uploaded to YouTube.

On this same date, the White Helmets affiliated NCSROF reported that a “Brigadier General,” “Mousa Zoabi” — unknown to virtually everyone — announced that the FSA was committed to a truce, now that the takfiri “have managed to repel a large scale attack…”

Shortly before Kinzinger’s announcement of the creation of a Syria-hating caucus on Capitol Hill, the gruesome video was removed by YouTube, which censored under its double-standards breaches.

Grotesque videos are never censored when they can be used as anti-Syria propaganda.

NATO Beloved White Helmets Mass Behead Syrian Soldiers

Beloved White Helmets savage in Daraa

A ghastly video of beloved White Helmets with severed heads of Syrian Arab Army soldiers in Daraa was released on 20 June.  The headless corpses of the martyred soldiers were seen being brutally dragged from a flat bed truck to be tossed into a dump.  

The falsely named “humanitarian” death squads have a long history of savagery against Syrian soldiers, ignored by the lying MSM that continues to glorify them, despite all proof they are funded by the CIA, MI6, EU.

[WARNING: GRAPHIC VIDEO, PHOTO]

The White Helmets have previously bragged of dumping the murdered bodies of Syrian soldiers into the trash.  In this video, the savages stand on the corpses of soldiers, while flashing “V for victory” signs — so very impartial.

The beloved White Helmets were nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize, and received an Oscar from the 5th column apparatus known as the Hollywood elite.

The beloved White Helmets are held in such high esteem by western media and politicians that they do not hide their savagery; with impunity, one of their rabid dogs waves the bloody head of a brutalized soldier as though having won a Captagon award in fiendish inhumanity.  Their increased impunity of barbarism in the slaughter and beheading of Syrian soldiers in Daraa is surely related to Trump’s flagrant collaboration of the US and ISIS against Syria.

UN madwoman Nikki Haley was thrilled to be in the company of the death squads titular head, in April.
