Perhaps White Helmets can be categorized as a sister organization of the Syrian Emergency Task Force (SETF), a US-based opposition organization run by Syrian renegade Moaz Moustafa (the man who accompanied John McCain to Syria to meet Al Qaeda in 2013) having close ties with WINEP and AIPAC and is a serial lobbyist for "regime change in Syria."
Tons of reports have been published by White Helmets on that hackneyed narrative of ""Assad's barrel bombs,"" but not a single one on the countless indiscriminate uses of tow missiles, wire guided anti-tank missiles, mortars, assault rifles, pistols, and a countless variety of hand grenades & rocket propelled grenades (all US-made) by Al-Nusra Front and ISIS (via Turkey) causing record breaking destruction in government controlled civilian areas.
Widespread cases of rape, sex-slavery and human trafficking of Syrian women, girls and children by foreign fighters conflate as yet another sordid episode on which White Helmets conveniently seem to have no information whatsoever.
Recently on July 27, a devastating car bomb was carried out by one of the many terror groups at Qameshli city of Haska province in Syria. It killed dozens and wounded scores. But the White Helmets were nowhere to be seen because the attack was carried out by their "moderate" allies.
The very ugly practice of image fraud is getting much too rampant. It's the sort of manipulation that plays wonderfully in the hands of hardcore anti-Assad reporters like Ken Roth and his likes. Photos of unspeakable mayhem and blood cuddling atrocities carried out by ANF and ISIS that are passed on as results of ""Assad's barrel bombs"" and randomly used by Al-Jazeera and Western channels including Time magazine without a jot of verification are by courtesy of White Helmets. Cautiously crafted deceptions such as Israeli bombing of Gaza in 2014 circulated as 'Victims of the Syrian Army' in 2015 and ISIS massacre of pro-Assad tribesmen in Deir Ez-Zorr in 2014 captioned as 'SAA bombing of Ghouta' 2015 are the kind of bluffs no more uncommon. Netanyahu must be blowing kisses at the White Helmets. The Israeli Defense Forces slaughter Gazans at will as a pastime while dozens of those images are picked and dumped on Assad by White Helmets. Check the image below taken from an article by Venessa Beeley that appeared on Global Research, a very accurate example of the image-bungling going on within the circles of propagandists and provocateurs.
Maryam Rajavi is one of the staunch supporters of White Helmets. I'm sure everyone knows who she is. She heads the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) supported by anti-revolution Iranians living abroad and US politicians. Her husband, Masoud Rajavi, is the leader of the terrorist organization, Mojahideen-e-Khalq (MEK), also known as the Rajavi cult. Rajavi's website contains some ridiculous one-sided stories by White Helmets blaming the Syrian government for just about every single death of Syrian civilians, going to the extent of demanding Assad's prosecution for "war crimes."
Fair clarification of sources and causes of attacks on civilians is imperative. Only if the international community is not misinformed will it stop supporting the preemptive invasions across Syria which will help bring an end to this needless bloodbath. But apparently White Helmets see that as a problem, indulging in massive manipulation and cover-ups along side their humanitarian work.
The Syrian government is simply upholding territorial integrity and national sovereignty by resisting a horde of foreign invaders which, taken for granted, is the entitlement of every government in the world in a similar situation.
Intent is the keynote of every ideology. When politicking and nepotism permeates within a humanitarian institution, it gets pitifully dehumanized!
