Pink Floyd Frontman Leaks Email Exposing How White Helmets Recruit Celebs With Saudi Money

in news •  6 months ago

 Earlier this week, The Free Thought Project reported  that Pink Floyd frontman Roger Waters stopped a concert in Barcelona to  warn the crowd about pro-war propaganda that is coming from a group in  Syria known as the White Helmets. In the days since Waters has taken several interviews to further  explain his views, the most interesting of which was with a group called  the Grayzone Project, where exclusive emails were featured, showing conversations between Waters’ team and representatives of the White Helmets. 

Waters’ first encounter with the White Helmets was actually long  before his April 13 concert, back in October 2016 when Saudi-British  billionaire Hani Farsi invited him to a lavish fundraiser that he was  holding on behalf of the White Helmet affiliated group “The Syria Campaign.”  

The Syria Campaign is a subsidiary of the New York-based PR agency Purpose, which claims to be impartial in the Syrian civil war. But as Alternet reported, they are on a mission to provoke western intervention in the region and have even openly called for a no-fly zone. 

The Syria Campaign works very closely with the White Helmets and likely has many of the same members. Last year, the Syria Campaign paid actors up to $600 each to  participate in a pro-White Helmet flash mob and orchestral performance  at New York City’s Grand Central Station.   

Despite the firm’s best efforts to fill the crowd with people at  least pretending to be in favor of their message, anti-war activists  still showed up to protest the event, holding up signs that read “Hands off Syria!” “This is U.S. war propaganda,” and “No U.S. bases in Syria.” 

 The White Helmets were founded in Turkey by a former British MI5  officer named James Le Mesurier. The group has received at least $55 million from the UK government and an additional $23 million from the U.S. government, both of whom have regime change interests in the region. 

According to data agency Gov Tribe, the U.S. government has given at least $339.6 million in foreign aid to groups attempting to bring about a “transition” in Syria. The “transition” that the White Helmets and affiliated  groups are hoping to bring in Syria is far from peaceful and  well-intentioned. 

Members of the WH have been filmed and photographed  standing and celebrating with Al-Qaeda-affiliated terrorists after battles, helping to conduct public executions, and they were even caught carrying around headless bodies. 

The Syria Campaign has attempted to cover up these atrocities by dismissing  video evidence as “Russian propaganda,” a familiar excuse that has been  parroted by government representatives in the U.S. and the UK. The event that Waters was invited to in 2016 was officially sponsored by one of Farsi’s holding companies, called the Corniche Group

According to the company’s website, “For the past fifty years,  the Farsi family has been active in Europe and the Middle East in urban  planning, real estate, property development, the arts, and  philanthropy. Led by Hani Farsi, the son of visionary civic leader and  philanthropist Mohammed Said Farsi who is credited with shaping modern  Saudi Arabia into a global business power player.” 

The invitation that Waters received said: 

“I am writing to invite you and a guest to join Hani  at a fundraising dinner that he is hosting on Monday 21st November on  behalf of The Syria Campaign…The Asfari Foundation provided the start-up  funds for The Syria Campaign and we will be joined on the evening by  Sawsan Asfari…Their work with The White Helmets has helped these rescue workers attract more than $15 million in government funding and turned them into household names – narrowly missing out on the Nobel Peace Prize this year.”

Waters said he did his research and was suspicious of the motives  that these interests had, so he never responded and avoided getting  involved in those efforts. Instead, Waters did his own research on what  was going on in Syria and used his platform to speak out against U.S.  intervention. 

Unfortunately, a handful of other celebrities did take the bait and  signed on to publicly support the White Helmets and the Syria Campaign.  These names include George Clooney, Ben Affleck, Daniel Craig, Justin Timberlake, Aziz Ansari and Zoe Saldana. 

“I was quite suspicious after I was invited to that [White Helmets] dinner. And now my worst suspicions have been confirmed,” Waters told the Grayzone Project. “I  would encourage the celebrities who’ve signed to endorse the White  Helmets to stop supporting them because we know what they are. I don’t  blame them for having bought into it. On the face of it, it felt  plausible that the White Helmets were just good people doing good  things. But now we know they’re trying to encourage the West to drops  bombs and missiles illegally in Syria.” 

Then just last week before his recent concert, Waters was approached  yet again through e-mail, this time by a French photojournalist named  Pascal Hanrion who described himself as a “militant with the Syrian White Helmets.” 

The Email read: 

“Good afternoon, my name is Pascal Hanrion, I’m photo reporter  and climber. I’m a militant with the Syrian White Helmets to denounce  crimes against humanity in Syria, especially against children. Last  Sunday, I made an important happening in Paris, climbing to the top of  center Georges Pompidou museum. I am in Barcelona to do the same, in  relation with a very powerful Syrian network. Please, could I meet Roger  Water to ask to invite me few seconds on the stage tomorrow during the  concert to send a message with him to the children of Syria ‘you are not  forgotten!'” 

As I reported earlier this week, Waters did not give this man his  requested time onstage but instead addressed the audience himself with a  message of peace and non-intervention. These e-mails give a behind the scenes look at how pro-war PR firms  attempt to harness the power of celebrity to promote political ideas  that these celebrities often know very little about. These agencies are  depending on busy artists or musicians to take them at their word in  regards to life and death political issues, but luckily at least a few  of them seem to be doing their research.

Roger Waters is a hero. Natalie Portman just stepped up, as a dual-Israeli, and boycotted them too, Netanyahu in particular.

TFTP has an article coming out about that in the next few days :-)

In a society obsessed with celebrities, we need these voices to be louder than ever. It is sad we must wait for drama students to inform our masses. But most wont listen to us avid info diggers.

Thank you for following up on this story @johnvibes. This is great that Mr. Waters is releasing this information & talking about this subject. I pray it'll motivate other folks in his sort of circumstances (rich & famous) to speak out & release information they have on this & other important topics... Operation Mockingbird anyone.

Look at the face of Roger waters. That's what being a musician does to you. Music is a world that we compete in and we express heart with. Heart and competing don't get along. That inner conflict eats up the majority of talent. In a world were people give their heart and get nothing in return its hard to exist.
