30.4.2016. - As the Syrian battle front rages in Aleppo, the White Helmets are emerging even more strongly as the long arm of US and UK propaganda. The Manhattan campaign managers at Purpose.inc have sprung into action. Red is the new black on Facebook and “Aleppo is burning” is the new slogan. White Helmets are in every video and photograph being circulated by western and gulf media. We will be writing a series of articles to cover rapidly developing events. White Helmet leader, Raed Saleh, recently deported from the US is top of our list but as usual our research has uncovered more than we bargained for. Watch this space.
Today, however, lets consider the White Helmets and their nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize in 2016.
Yes, you heard that correctly. The UK and US funded 5th Columnists embedded in terrorist held areas across Syria have reached the dizzying heights of Nobel Peace Prize nomination while acting as crisis support team for Al Qaeda operatives, Jabhat Al Nusra.
White Helmets work closely with the PR firm Purpose, Inc. to lobby for military intervention against Assad. Purpose co-founder Jeremy Heimans also helped create Avaaz, a global “pro-democracy” group that’s been accused of furthering the U.S. agenda in the Middle East and elsewhere.
The leader of the Syrian Civil Defense (“White Helmets”), Ra’ed Al-Saleh, was banned from entering the United States (U.S.) after he traveled to the country last week to receive a humanitarian award from InterAction. State Department Spokesperson, Mark Toner, confirmed that the Syrian Civil Defense leader was banned from entry, despite the fact the U.S. just gave his group $23 million. ---- Full transcript

Mike Robinson speaks to Vanessa Beeley from the Syria Solidarity Movement about the activities of NGOs in Syria and Yemen, with particular focus on the "White Helmets". “White Helmets demonizes the Assad government and encourages direct foreign intervention. A White Helmet leader wrote a recent Washington Post editorial. White Helmets are also very active on social media with a presence on Twitter, Facebook etc.,” Beeley said. The White Helmets work mainly with the rebel group Jabat al Nusra (al-Qaeda in Syria). There are videos of the recent supposed chlorine gas attack which starts with the White Helmet logo and ends with the logo of Nusra. In reality, White Helmets is a small rescue team for Nusra/al-Qaeda, Beeley said.
According to Rick Sterling’s article on the ‘Highly Effective Manipulators, he also elaborated that the “White Helmets is the newly created name for ‘Syrian Civil Defense.’
Despite the name, Syria Civil Defense was not created by Syrians nor does it serve Syria. Civilians from rebel controlled territory were paid to go to Turkey to receive some training in rescue operations. The program was managed by James Le Mesurier, a former British soldier and private contractor whose company is based in Dubai,” Global Research reported.
The claims regarding the number of people trained by the White Helmets and the number of people rescued are quite different. “The numbers are probably highly exaggerated especially since rebel-controlled territories have few civilians. A doctor who recently served in a rebel-controlled area of Aleppo described it as a ghost town.”
The so-called Syrian White Helmets were founded by former British infantry officer James Le Mesurier. Mainly using social media propaganda campaigns they agitate for a No-Fly Zone. The imposition of a No-Fly Zone would entail U.S. cruise missile strikes on Damascus, and other SAA/SyAAF strongholds, with the goal of regime change. These "humanitarian" strikes would result in tens of thousands of civilian casualties, allow for a complete al-Qaeda/ISIS/Muslim Brotherhood takeover of Syria and likely cause wider regional war/chaos (perhaps the intent).
After RT and Sott.net among others, exposed the gaping holes in White Helmet propaganda whereby the group recycled older photographs on Twitter in an effort to blame Russia for ‘civilian deaths’ – even before the alleged Russian bombing had occurred. Since then, the propaganda “war” has only ramped up. The Russian involvement in Syria, did not only betray the US military deception, it also brought some heavyweight media giants of its own into the fray who set about de-constructing the Western media and NGO indoctrination that had, for so long, been largely unchallenged.
It is becoming harder and harder for White Helmets to maintain their veneer of impartiality, a fact that is borne out quite effectively by the fact that the majority of Syrians in government held areas have never heard of them, even unbiased civilians in Aleppo have not come across them. Their association is exclusively with the extremist elements of the Syrian opposition. Their purpose is to facilitate calls for a No Fly Zone, cue Avaaz, and destabilize the region in the manner demanded by their masters in the US, UK and Syrian National Council.
These same agents of change can also be seen organising various NGO-affiliated live events in both Europe and the US, in order to drum-up political support and cash for the western-backed regime change project. This aspect of the campaign is detailed here in the article by Tim Hirschel-Burns, entitled, Developing Change A blog on development, activism, political advocacy, and NGOs.
