“But we the people are born from the womb of the revolution, the sons of the revolution, and the servants of the Syrian revolution,” ~ Brigadier Fouad Soueid of the Free Syrian Police
In 2013, the British government launched the pseudo first response unit, the White Helmets, in Turkey.
The White Helmets is a multi-million-dollar-funded so called NGO, paid, equipped and supported by the NATO and Gulf states focused on regime change in Syria.
One year later in 2014, Phillip Hammond, UK Foreign Secretary, was collaborating with the Syrian National Coalition, a Syrian opposition party, heavily populated by the Muslim Brotherhood, on another shadow state project.
I will be writing an in-depth article on the Free Syrian Police, over the next few days, in the meantime, Mike Robinson and Brian Gerrish of UK Column spoke with me about the FSP founders and the current media moves to highlight the role of the FSP in the Nusra Front and ISIS terrorist, occupied, region of Idlib.
An unexpected silver lining to the cloud of Trump’s visa ban, came to light a few days ago when it was announced that the White Helmet representatives would not be permitted entry into the US, under the new legislation that will be enforced for the next ninety days.
The multi million dollar, NATO and Gulf state funded, pseudo humanitarian, Nusra Front aka Al Qaeda “civil defence” group, has, yet again, been thwarted, in its quest for red carpet honour and recognition.
White Helmets leader Raed Saleh and cinematographer Khaled Khateeb, both Syrian, were invited to the 2017 Academy Awards by Joanna Natasegara, the producer of a short documentary about the organization available on Netflix. The documentary film ‘The White Helmets’ has been nominated for an Oscar, along with four other contestants.
Natasegara expressed her outrage over the new development in a statement:
“They’ve been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize,” she said. “These people are the bravest humanitarians on the planet, and the idea that they could not be able to come with us and enjoy that success is just abhorrent.”
The travel ban for seven predominantly Muslim countries imposed by US President Donald Trump last week also affected acclaimed Iranian filmmaker Asghar Farhadi, whose film The Salesman is nominated in the Foreign Language category, and Syrian woman Hala Kamil, the subject of Watani: My Homeland, another nomination for the short documentary award.
This is not the first time Saleh has been banned from entering the United States. In April 2016, he had to return to Istanbul after discovering that his visa had been cancelled by the US. This prevented him from receiving an award in Washington at a gala party supported by White Helmets sponsor USAID.
The White Helmets, who also call themselves the Syrian Civil Defense, have been touted as a non-political aid organization focused on saving lives in war-torn Syria. The Oscar-nominated documentary depicts them in line with that narrative.
Critics say it is a foreign-funded propaganda vehicle closely aligned with Islamist militant groups opposing the Syrian government. Members of the group have been accused of stealing vehicles, rescue equipment, and its very name from the government-run Syrian Civil Defense, an organization with a decades-long record of rescue operations in Syria.
The following is a film produced by Steve Ezzedine of Hands Off Syria, Sydney exposing the Netflix documentary as a propaganda vehicle for this Al Qaeda support group:
