Avaaz is beating it’s war drums once again – this time in
Let’s send them a message that we don’t want this ! Over a million and a
half of you signed their petition for a no fly zone. But, that petition was
sent out to 40 million Avaaz members starting back in the Spring of 2015. If I had Avaaz’s email list, I’ll bet I
could get millions to sign this petition against a “no fly zone”.
Over the last two years a lot of new information has come out about how progressives were duped into signing that Avaaz petition. That is what you will find out below.
There is currently a CIA and State Department propaganda offensive to put
pressure on Russia. This appears to be an alternative to Obama's reluctance to
further escalate US support for the Syrian rebels, now viewed as a lost cause,
which of course the CIA armed in the first place.
There is a split within the Obama Administration. Realizing that the non‐ISIS
rebels are now inseparable from the dominant Al Nusra Front (Al Qaeda), the
Secretary of Defense and the CIA now want to drag Russia and Iran into a
quagmire by prolonging the Syrian civil war. The former acting CIA
director Michael Morell said exactly that, in a recent interview with Charlie
Rose. After billions of dollars in arms and training to support the rebel’s
regime change cause, this is now their plan B, to salvage something from
their years of futility. They have made the decision not to escalate the arms
shipments, but rather escalate the propaganda.
By restarting their "no fly zone" campaign at the exact same time, about October 1st, as numerous Neocon pundits and publications also ramped up their calls for
it, I believe that Avaaz has intentionally joined this coordinated propaganda
offensive and has adopted a Neocon agenda, which it keeps hidden from its 40
What does this tell you about Avaaz, that they would join in on the propaganda
, and could be fooled so easily? Keep in mind that Avaaz also sponsored a
petition under similar circumstances in 2011, that was a major factor for
bringing us the "no fly zone" for Libya. And here they go again,
right on queue !
Over a million of you out there signed that Libya petition in 2011 ! I'll
bet now, you wish you had not signed that !
The vast majority of the rebels within East Aleppo are Al Nusra Front (Al
Qaeda), according to DOD Col Steve Warren, at a press briefing in April.
And the other rebels there have refused to separate themselves from Al Nusra,
as was agreed on with the latest ceasefire. If the remaining civilians, who are
mostly extended family of the rebels, want to leave that war zone they are free
to do so, as Russia has repeatedly offered, and has established safe corridors
last July to do so.
The United Nations supervised safe escape corridors were just re‐established on October 20th. After being open four days only 48 people came through, all women & children. News reports say the rebels prevented the civilians from leaving. But, perhaps there are very few civilians still left in East Aleppo? That would change everything, wouldn't it?
The Avaaz petition relies on an argument about "protecting the
civilians" in East Aleppo. But, all they have is the word of the
"white helmets" for that figure of 275,000 civilians still living
there. East Aleppo is now a ghost town. Aerial drone video shows extremely few civilians, miles of uninhabitable buildings and streets filled with rubble. At least 600,000 civilians moved over
into West Aleppo years ago because they wanted to live under a secular
government, not Al Qaeda. The "white helmets” are nothing but Al Qaeda
rebels wearing white helmets, which operate exclusively in rebel territory.
Their leader was recently prevented from entering the United States because he
is on our terrorist watch list. (see the links below).
Update: ..... As of December 9th. the rebels in East Aleppo have lost at least 85% of their territory over just a three week period. But yet, the United Nations reports that only 40,000 civilians came out of that lost rebel area. Obviously Avaaz has lied to it's membership when they claimed in their petition that there were 275,000 civilians in East Aleppo. Can we believe anything Avaaz tells us?
Are we supposed to take a chance on a war with Russia based on this?
Avaaz also appears to have a major conflict of interest. A major international
public relations firm called Purpose Inc. has a very large contract to
promote favorable publicity for the Syrian rebels and promote regime change.
Their CEO is Jeremy Heimans, and he is also a co‐founder of Avaaz.
Inc. is being paid a lot of money by someone. That Propose PR contract
began in the Spring of 2014, and they created an organization called The
Syrian Campaign. And that organization then partnered with the "white
helmets”, operating in the field, to provide propaganda for western media.
Now, Mr. Heimans currently does not work at Avaaz, but, his friends and former
like minded associates certainly do.
One must admit that this connection to the PR firm does look very suspicious
! And so, one must ask, is the Avaaz "no fly zone" petition part
of a massive PR campaign trying to save the civilians of East Aleppo, or is
it really just trying to save the Al Qaeda rebels in East Aleppo so that they
can prolong the civil war? I would imagine that Mr. Heimans would very much
like the latter option for his wealthy PR client, who supports the Al Qaeda rebels.
The link below is to an excellent article by Max Blumenthal
on this subject. You will need to select & copy & paste this link into

You remember Al Qaeda, right ? The group that attacked us on
9/11 fifteen years ago ? Right? I thought we were supposed to be fighting
them, not protecting them with a “no fly zone” !
If you or I were to give material support to Al Qaeda like Mr. Heimans does (and by conjecture Avaaz does), we would have the F.B.I. knocking at our door within a few minutes.
A No fly zone is exactly what the Neocons have wanted all along, so that they
can carry out their latest regime change, following the Iraq and Libya
blueprints, where the "no fly zone" worked quite well to accomplish
Syria has been on the regime change target list of Israel and it's Neocon
supporters since it appeared on their Project For A New American Century target
list 20 years ago. Iraq, Iran and Libya were also on that target list.
What we need is a petition to stop the CIA and The Saudis from sending arms to
the rebels! The death toll is now 400,000, with two million refugees knocking on
Europe's door and another 6 million displaced regionally.
The Saudi's, who are mostly responsible for this catastrophe, have not taken in
a single refugee !
How about a petition for that?
And ... where was Avaaz's petition in the summer of 2014 to stop Israel from
bombing Gaza and killing 2,200 civilians, including 500 children? All we heard
back then was the mantra ‐‐ "Israel has the right to defend itself".
Doesn't Syria have a right to defend itself? Avaaz now argues that other UN member States have the right to use force to stop Syria from defending itself because of reports of civilian casualties, reports mostly provided by the "white helmets".
The Avaaz leadership ....Alice, Mais, Ricken, Nick, Mohammad, Marigona ....
what are you thinking? Are you just trying to set the Middle East on fire like a serial arsonist, to
further the Neocon cause?
And, I don't suppose Avaaz noticed the Russian aircraft carrier that just
appeared in the Mediterranean in the last few days?
Avaaz needs to read something other than the New York Times and Washington
Post, the articles cited in support of their petition. Remember 15 years ago
the front page articles by Judith Miller about nonexistent WMD's in Iraq? Back
then, it was "curveball" providing the fake information to Judith
Miller. Now, we have the discredited "white helmets" providing the
front page propaganda.
Don't get fooled again folks.

The ongoing media propaganda war against Syria:
What does The Defense Intelligence Agency say?
The US supported ALL of the rebel groups as early as 2012 as
the DIA intelligence report from 2012, which is cited below, shows. This
support included Al Qaeda groups as well as the precursor to what later became
ISIS. Back then, the report describes all of these groups as “strategic
assets”, to be used by both the US and The Saudis for regime change.
Even Robert Ford, the US Ambassador who was out in the streets of
Damascus organizing demonstrations against Assad back in 2011, has now
abandoned ship, as the following article shows:
Philip Gordon, Obama's former Middle East adviser,
has also changed his mind about regime change.

General Wesley Clark says all of these regime change wars were planned from
day one !
Here are your tax dollars at work folks. This video shows the CIA
supported rebels in East Aleppo executing Syrian Army soldiers who had been
defending a hospital in East Aleppo. This video is for adults only!
A "no fly zone" to protect those criminals ? Avaaz thinks it is just fine !
