MESOP “ A NASTY PIECE” : JOSHUA LANDIS & US LEFTIES & US ALTERNATIVE PRESS AGAINST THE “WHITE HELMETS” (secretely on Assad’s side)
Hassan Hassan – @hxhassan – This is simply a nasty & despicable piece. These guys are risking their lives to dig people out of the rubble caused by Russia/Assad. twitter.com/joshua_landis/ …
Thanks to an aggressive public relations push by The Syria Campaign, the White Helmets have been nominated for the Nobel Prize, and have already been awarded the “alternative Nobel” known as the Right Livelihood Award. (Previous winners include Amy Goodman, Edward Snowden and Israeli nuclear whistleblower Mordechai Vanunu.) At the same time, the White Helmets are pushing for a NFZ in public appearances and on a website created by The Syria Campaign.
The Syria Campaign has garnered endorsements for the White Helmets from a host of Hollywood celebrities including Ben Affleck, Alicia Keyes and Justin Timberlake. And with fundraising and “outreach” performed by The Syria Campaign, the White Helmets have become the stars of a slickly produced Netflix documentary vehicle that has received hype from media outlets across the West. But making the White Helmets into an international sensation is just one of a series of successes The Syria Campaign has achieved in its drive to oust Syria’s government.
