Terrorist Group Nominated for Nobel Peace Prize

Terrorist Group Nominated for Nobel Peace Prize

by Stephen Lendman

Nobel hypocrisy is notorious for favoring warmakers over peace champions, a rogue’s gallery of miscreants among their honorees - notably Obama, Henry Kissinger, Shimon Peres and Yitzhak Rabin.

If imperial-sponsored/al Nusra-connected misnamed Civil Defense White Helmets operating in Syria win this year, ignoble Nobel tradition will continue.

Created by Britain and America in 2013, they’re managed by James Le Mesurier, a former UK soldier and private military contractor in Dubai and Raed Saleh.

They operate in al-Nusra controlled areas, proliferating propaganda, vilifying Assad, intent on regime chance, supported by Western media scoundrels.

Calling themselves volunteer rescue workers responsible for saving 60,000 lives in Syria is rubbish, their mission polar opposite their propaganda. America and Britain supply millions of dollars. Soros’ Open Society Foundation funding is involved along with other Western interests.

They’ve been photographed and videotaped together with al-Nusra terrorists during beheadings and other atrocities. They support creation of a no-fly zone to prevent Syrian aerial self-defense.

The Syria Solidarity Movement calls them al Qaeda “with a facelift,” fostering terrorism and imperial ravaging on the pretext of humanitarianism.

People associated with the group are enemies of fundamental freedoms, warriors, not peacemakers, foreign-supported dark forces wanting tyranny replaced Syrian sovereign independence.

Nominating them for Nobel Peace Prize recognition gives a terrorist organization a chance to be this year’s winner. Can Nobel tradition get any more debauched than that!
