A few of us warned about this over a year ago and the perpetrators and their tiny group of weak minded (or worse) Syrian supporters tried, but failed to shoot the messengers.

The organization the patriarch heads has got a lot of grants from UNHCR and FAO among other bodies for projects and all this is done by highly competent and professional Syrians; but you wouldn't ever hear about the thousands of Syrians who are doing great things. Interestingly if the "hijackers", "gatekeepers", "orientalist", opportunists and outright agents hear these Syrians do projects with UN funds etc they will most likely condemn them!

We in the English language Syrian pages who stayed on trying to salvage the online movement have spoken out repeatedly about what's going on. Much of this can be traced back to the disgraceful betrayal of a few Syrians who took on leadership of the online English language Syrian cause and were utterly responsible for enabling these agents to disrupt, hijack and redirect our social media movement in order to neutralise this part of the fight back strategy (via social media) of Syria. This is how the empire works.

The empire works in this way using a hierarchy of operatives, with the bottom rung often being unaware of their role in this hierarchy and just happy about the attention and free run of their colonialist, orientalist egos where they can pursue their own organisations agenda, their personal one too.

A few steps up the ladder the more smart ones take on a few pet topics which they flood the social media platform with, drowning out any other news or stories and indigenous writers/reporters that they don't have control over.

As they hijack and completely take over the space and the Syrians retreat, leaving a few who for various reasons stay around, they build up a narrative about themselves and present themselves as saviours and that without them Syria would cease to exist!

THE MUSLIM SPRING TAKE II By Ghassan and Intibah Kadi 6 July 2017

By Ghassan and Intibah Kadi
6 July 2017

In a previous article titled “A Muslim Spring” published on the Saker, on the 12th of June 2017, the analysis of the then recent Qatar standoff took us into the direction of whether new Middle Eastern alliances were taking form and old ones dismantling.
Developments since then reveal that the distinctive parts of the new embryos are already differentiating and emerging. The initial article foresaw the formation of two new alliances in this manner:


By Intibah Kadi
11 July 2017

Earlier on in the War on Syria, an Israeli operative, an academic at the time based at Haifa University, filled his 5000 friends quota on FB with as many Syrians and their supporters as he could. He wrote private messages to all those he thought were Alawites. He made a private group for Alawites and Jews. He accidentally wrote to a Syrian Christian inviting her to his group and when she said she was Christian he apologized, saying it was only for those two groups.  My friend sent me the screenshots. They are placed below along with the cover details of the academic and his sneaky post in a patriotic Syrian group.

I did some research on this person and found out that he has written academic and policy position papers on how Israel can bring closer to them the Alawites and offer them a “better” alternative than being with their Sunni brothers. Here are some of his titles:
“The Alawites and Israel” and in the article says
“The current regime in Syria, terrified of a Sunni takeover, might appeal to the Jewish state for help…From personal contact with Alawites, I know that they are already beginning to discuss the possibility of appealing to Israel for help. If they do – and they probably will at some point – and the international community does not help them, Israel should step in to aid the Alawites, which would also mean helping their Shi’ite allies, who will by that point be similarly embattled .” 

We have had other nefarious characters all the way from Moscow to parts of the USA come among us, trying to sow sectarian discord and lies, trying to spark a nightmarish Sunni-Shia war. This attempt of the Israeli academic really puts it all out there quite openly whilst others have been far more covert, or so they think!

The academic now works for a think tank associated with a Tel Aviv based university and appears to be climbing up the strategic ladder and that of national significance. He is one of the creative thinkers on how to advance Israel’s strategies.

Fortunately, this Israeli academic underestimated his targets in Syria and he gave up eventually. So, his next target became the people of South Sudan. The people who have for years now been telling stories to deaf ears of incredible atrocities perpetuated against them because they are either Christians or Animists. It seems the Israel academic hit the jackpot with these people and that his strategies are powerfully assisting the Israeli government to get into the heart of the intelligentsia, government departments, UN officials of South Sudan.
That was obviously the plan for Syria as well!

So to add the 5000 new South Sudan contacts on his FB page this academic had to drop all his Syrian ones (and Syria supporters). However he kept TWO. The interesting thing about these two contacts is that one is a proven operative of a cult, known to have engaged in efforts to convert Syrians, obsessed with getting intelligence, as typical of that cult which is still stuck in the days-gone-by mindset of the Cold War, a cult that built enormous armament and other business interests that intersect with the many dangerous entities that cause mayhem and murder on this planet, including a history of collaboration with US Intelligence.

This particular individual from a cult, the remaining friend of this Israeli academic, curiously, like a number of other proven nefarious characters, has cover and protection from a club who came as “friends” to defend Syria but who seem committed more to assuring their survival for their particular aims and objectives. At times we see them engaging in bizarre acts related to mutually assured support and no one dares ask the pertinent questions in case they get cauterized liked the Kadis did (and survived only to become stronger) in order to prevent the infection of “truth” spreading to those who need to hear it.

That cult member who remains on the Israeli academic’s list of friends, in the past became inconsolably hysterical when faced with the prospect of losing the money launderer of the project as he was being outed for his antics and wild stories. The most surprising was the reactions from a few others to this unravelling and, that is when the red flag went up. A host of other “friends” of Syria came from nowhere, like angry wasps swatting at myself, Ghassan and others who were busy completing the parts of the jigsaw puzzle that we gained from the tall stories in the private messages we had been given. Predictably, in times of war and hardship, a “useful boy” can be found who feels no concern about collaborating with these characters for as long as he got what he needed. Some others who used him no longer are allowed visas for Syria and others are under investigation.

The second one this Israeli operative academic kept has a Facebook profile adorned with Syrian flags and a Jewish sounding surname who also, like the cult member, has been busy defending the many shady and questionable “friends” of Syria in what seems to be a “you scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours” arrangement.

Why, whenever nefarious characters emerge and are exposed, a particular grouping of “friends” of Syria rush to protect them aggressively, is anybody’s question, as the variety and contradicting sets of agendas these “supporters” possess is mind blowing and mind boggling. The mutual support they display indicates a banding together to protect their individual agendas from being exposed, and they morphed into what is best described as soldier ants! Their attempts to silence and shut down patriots who obstruct their paths is futile and will only backfire as they fumble and make mistakes under the covert gaze of those patriots with keen observation skills.

As with the Israeli academic’s strategies, it is all about getting into the heart of the country and its institutions, via social media contacts, finding recruits, getting on with the sneaky divide and rule tactics, in order to achieve whatever aim has been set.  We have seen other examples of “friends” coming to us, whispering words we want to hear but in private uttering ugly sectarian words, and being completely caught out and then defended by the cohort group. 
Very strange “friends” of Syria indeed, “friends” for the unaware or naïve only!

"In an article published on the Saker titled “Kurdish Autonomy; Partition or Masterplan”, and as the unsavoury prospect of establishing an independent Kurdish state in Syria was taking form, I emphasised that this scenario is avoidable, and at worst, if it had to happen, and if all cards were played correctly, then a seemingly impending disaster could be turned around and that any potential harm could be mitigated. The first of many conditions I had put for this turn around to be successful, was that Syrian Kurds should stay under the roof of Damascus" (Ghassan Kadi)

TRUMP'S SHOW-ME-THE-MONEY WORLD TOUR: By Ghassan Kadi, 2 June 2017

TRUMP'S SHOW-ME-THE-MONEY-WORLD TOUR: By Ghassan Kadi, 2 June 2017

Recently Ghassan has written many articles and some of them were seen as more urgent than others for publication on The Saker. This one was in the queue but keeps dropping out! It's here for anyone interested.


By Ghassan Kadi
2 June 2017

In my previous article titled “Al-Saud’s Only Gamble Option”, the focus of the analysis was Saudi Arabia, and how it was coerced to pave for Trump a golden highway or face dire consequences. But the game that Trump has more or less successfully played in Riyadh (pending Congress approval to the huge arm’s deal), is only a single act in a multi-act play that Trump is trying to enact with the rest of the world. For some reason however, the world does not seem to be reading Trump correctly.

As more evidence emerges, it is becoming increasingly clearer that the twists and turns that we have learned to experience from Trump are all financially motivated. The odds that favour any other speculation do not stack up in a manner that forms a comprehensive view.

Certainly, some analysts and observes are happy to simply see Trump as a madman and that he doesn’t know what he is doing. I beg to differ, and I see clear and obvious footprints in Trump’s recent overseas tour, and which should for fairness be dubbed; Trump’s show-me-the-money world tour.

It wasn’t by accident that Trump made of Riyadh his first stop. That strategy boosted the pathetic vulnerable ego of the Saudis. On the negative flipside of this, they were put on the spot, unable to gauge what reaction to give to his request of a whole third of a trillion dollar arm’s deal other than submission, with a smile, because they need those weapons to finish the war in Yemen and be able to stand up against Iran. 

In choosing Saudi Arabia as his first stop, Trump was also using his unsuspecting hosts to send a message to his future hosts; EU/NATO partners. The message was: You’re next.

His request that other NATO members lift their contributions was not received very warmly. The fact that Merkel was quick to announce that the EU should rely more on itself for its own defence, comes with a clear message that behind the scenes; Trump’s price was higher than a home-grown force to replace NATO down the track.

Then came Trump’s renegement of the Paris climate deal. This is yet another mere economic decision that will give American industries and economy the benefit of unfair advantage. But Trump cares only about money. This is how he led his life and succeeded in business.

Certainly, the EU/NATO leaders are not as foolish and/or desperate as their Saudi counterparts. They can and did give Trump the cold shoulder.

In every stop he made, every step he takes and every promise he breaks, every twist he makes, Trump’s actions and inactions are all centered on one single issue; financial pragmatism as perceived by the eyes of a businessman. This again points to the state of desperation of the American economy and its uncompetitive status quo.

America is no longer able to excel on a level playing field in its trading with other nations. It must therefore capitalize on its remaining edge; military prowess and hardware industry. It will use those advantages to put itself in positions of unfair advantage, and to bully other nations into doing military business with them.

It is for this reason and this reason alone that America sees Russia as a huge threat, not because Russia is interfering in Ukraine and/or American elections as alleged, but because America can only bully its way in by means of maintaining what is left of its status as the single superpower of the post USSR ‘New World Order’. But that order is no more, and the USA must always conjure up new ways to stay on top of the military industries.

China is Trump’s other huge nightmare, because China is not only an emerging military giant, but certainly an economic one. 

It is most ironic that America’s stand on South China Sea is done in the name of protecting trade routes. No nation on earth has a vested interest in protecting those particular routes more than China itself; after all, they are China’s trade routes, and for every shipping container that moves across those waters into China, at least ten move the other way, brining China wealth and more global significance.

To be fair to Trump, if he deserves any fairness at all, he has come to the stark realization that the innovative nature of American industrial economy is a thing of the past, and for him to stick to the election promise of jobs, jobs, jobs, he has to play dirty. With a decaying infra-structure, rusted factories and insufficient number of highly qualified and self-motivated young technicians, an American techno resurgence is unfathomable, and for Trump to create jobs and put the economy back on track, the only trick up his sleeve is to be a bully.

Given that America has no concrete reason for its anti-Russia and anti-China moves, it must create some to feed the media and the masses. This is a new-age unprecedented form of piracy. In the past, up till recently, nations were at least more transparent in demonstrating their reasons for war against each other, and the rule of the game was always for the stronger and more advanced nation to be in the position of having the upper hand. America however is not in a position to make admissions that it is in the process of conjuring up stories against Russia and China because it has lost its competitive edge; not whilst Trump is claiming to be making America great again. Such an admission would be tantamount to an athlete admitting that he cannot win without performance enhancement drugs. But such actions are actions of desperation and they cannot go very far. 

A few years ago, I wrote an article titled “How Far Will a Desperate Radical America Go?”
. I predicted that such an America will likely blackmail other nations in a manner that coerces them to do business under the threat of nuclear attacks should they refuse. We have not seen this come to pass, but down the track, with more audacious advances from Trump and future presidents, this possibility cannot be zeroed out, because America will not sit down and watch its economy and world domination fall to pieces.

A few years ago also I predicted that one day America will elect a president that will make George W. Bush look like mother Teresa. I am not sure if Trump is that president, perhaps close. And now, it is not hard to predict that one day America will elect a president that will make Trump look like Socrates.

A MUSLIM SPRING By Ghassan Kadi 12 June 2017

Ghassan’s take on the fallout of the Qatar crisis and its possible wider implications


By Ghassan Kadi
11 June 2017
When President Assad and the gallant Syrian Army decided that Syria was to stand up against the multi-national conspiracy against her, fought against all odds, certain of victory but preferred to risk to go down standing rather than surrendering long before she earned the respect and support of friends who eventually came to her aid, she had nothing up her sleeve other than her redlines.

Those redlines were and still are underpinned by her sovereignty and integrity, and her laws that reflect those principles.

Like all other nations and states, it is up to Syria and Syria alone to decide what her redlines are, and in times of crisis, when friends come to one’s aid, Syria is not alone in expecting her friends and supporters to know and understand what her redlines are; otherwise, how on earth can those friends and supporters discern where the defence lines would be drawn and what to uphold?

Not even Syria’s President would cross those redlines, and the very reason why he received so much popular support, why the overwhelming majority of Syrians stood by him and regarded him as the voice, the embodiment of all of what is good in Syria, why the Syrian Army remained defiant against all odds, and why Syria won her war, was because President Assad has set the precedent, the perfect example as he cherished and symbolized Syria’s unwavering principles, redlines, and the laws that define those principles and redlines.

It is therefore most unacceptable for patriotic Syrians to see supposed supporters trying to impose what their own redlines are; not only on other people who are meant to be supporters, but on the nation as a whole.

Until the laws of Syria change, if they change by the natural course of the democratic process that is in place, those laws need to be respected and adhered to, just like the laws of any other nation. And if and when those laws change, they will change in accordance with the will of the people; not in accordance with the fantasies and agendas of couch activists, personal profile builders, fund-thirsty opportunists, gate-keepers, propagandists and religious freaks and zealots of different descriptions.

And when any of such suspicious characters are not Syrian, if they have any integrity at all, they must understand that there is a bigger onus on them to stay away from the law-making process of Syria; because this is a matter for Syrians and not for them. And if they truly support Syria, they should be demanding to stay out of imposing their own vision, but do they?

The true friends of Syria do, and they are highly appreciated for their unconditional support, but those who pretend to be friends are in a totally different paradigm.

Some alleged supporters of Syria, alleged Syrian patriots or otherwise, think that they have a mandate to decide how to stretch the laws of Syria and put themselves in a position to decide what laws can be stretched and broken. Among other things, they believe that they have the right to decide what constitutes a breach of Syrian laws even when it comes to matters relating to national security; including matters that relate to the steadfast position of Syria against Israel.

What is more ironic and most audacious is that those same people accuse anyone, including genuine Syrian patriots, who question their self-given mandate to break Syrian law as enemies of Syria. Inadvertently and perhaps subconsciously, they are referring to those patriots as personal enemies, only and simply because they feel challenged by them as they expose their agendas.

But redlines can only be seen by people of colour vision and those who are able to discern red from black. But those with colour blindness are only able to see a reflection of their own shades of grey and confusion.

It is not within the power or mandate of anyone to make claims about what Syria should accept, who to allow on her soil, what should be deemed acceptable and not acceptable by Syria; outside what is stipulated within Syrian law.
To those who believe they are above Syria’s law, we say: Hands off Syria.

This article analyses the events leading up to the underlying reasons and ironies of the farcical situation of Qatar being declared a terrorist state.
"The sudden, unprovoked and coordinated outrage of Middle East regional powers, as well as international powers, against Qatar is something akin to a story in “Fables de La Fontaine”. With a bit of a twist, it resembles the story of “The Animals Seized with the Plague”."QATAR QQQQ

Initially, when the online social media-based Syrian defence groups took off, they were meant to fill-in the social media gap that the Syrian Government was not prepared for. For this reason, concerned and responsible Syrian citizens took upon themselves the task of using the new communication medium to do their bit in defending the homeland.
In the beginning it was monumental, and reached out to the world, and most importantly, the English-speaking world.
It was perhaps because of this initial success that the movement was soon to be attacked and become subject to information warfare. It would be foolish to think otherwise and believe that the enemies of Syria would leave this very successful movement alone.
Before too long, that online social media-based Syrian defence movement, especially the English-speaking version of it, turned into a forum for implants and weak links of a multitude of motivations including, but not restricted to, the following:
1. Hired (ie paid) trolls who were planted into the online Syrian defence front just like the terrorist militants were hired and paid to go and fight inside Syria.
2. Individuals who jumped on the band-wagon in order to gain personal accolade for their own gratification and satisfaction.
3. Money-hungry opportunists who capitalized on crowd-funding for their own personal benefit, and did so repeatedly without showing any evidence of passing on any portion of those funds to needy Syrians.
4. Religious zealots, mainly Christian Zionists, who grabbed the opportunity of the rise of Jihadi Islamism to promote their own doctrine and their own version of Christianity and presenting it as a religion that is better than Islam.
5. Highly suspicious Syrians who have allowed enemies of Syria to infiltrate into social media groups, allowed them to become admins of such groups, and defended them against Syrian patriots.
6. Corrupt and complacent Syrian government personnel who did not properly vet out would be Western visitors to Syria and ignored warnings about the above repeatedly and did nothing about it.
7. Orientalists, ie Westerners who believe that nothing good can and will happen in the East in general, the Levant to be specific, without their involvement and seal of approval.
8. Well-intentioned Syrians with bad judgement who were deluded enough to follow wolves in sheep’s clothing.
9. Weak Syrians who were unable to see the forest from the trees and followed their enemies against their own compatriots.
10.Corrupt Syrians who were prepared to sell their souls to the highest bidder, be prepared to lie, fabricate stories, and attack other Syrians for no reason other than being told to do so by their sponsors.
Six years, going on seven, after the “War on Syria” started, a good look at what is left of the online English–speaking defence groups makes one wonder; where are the genuine indigenous Syrian patriots? There seems to be none left!
But this is not all.
The moment a Syrian stood up to expose the truth, any truth about any of the above culprits, despite their vast differences, they all rallied up together to call that Syrian an enemy of Syria. They used everything in their power to defame him, destroy him, and shone the spotlights on themselves as THE defenders of Syria and the custodians of her war. Many of the non-Syrians among them even dared call genuine Syrian patriots as enemies of Syria, and the weak Syrians and corrupt Syrians and personnel shamelessly danced to their drum beats, seemingly unmoved by the blood of tens of thousands of Syrian soldiers and many more tens of thousands of civilians who have perished defending the homeland.
Eventually, many Syrians who joined that online movement initially have either been bullied out, walked away in disgust, or have been destroyed. But as time goes by, the tides have been turning.
History is recording everything and once exposed, the non-Syrian trolls, ego-trippers, money-grabbers, Zionist-church-builders and other enemies of Syria will be temporarily put in a specific basket and then forgotten and relegated to the rubbish bin of history.
The ones who will not be forgotten or forgiven will be the Syrians who took up arms to fight against Syria.
In this particular context herein however, the ones who will not be forgiven the most are Syrians who have betrayed the online Syria defence movement. After all, it was them who have allowed the enemies of Syria to infiltrate the online social media-based Syrian defence groups despite all evidence that was presented to them. They are not any better than those who carried guns. They are in fact two of a kind. The first group gave the militants the key into Syria and the second group gave the key to the media infiltration agents.
Those Syrians who are at best spineless, perhaps shameless, but most probably deliberate troll-admins, who knowingly and deliberately covered up for the enemies of Syria, have eventually driven away Syrian patriots, and even had the audacity to appoint Christian Zionists who clearly belong to Churches that endorse Israel, against evidence provided, to be admins in online social media-based Syrian defence groups. Furthermore, they defended them when they were exposed, and turned the attack against the Syrian patriots who highlighted the evidence. Their actions are akin to treason, and they know it.
The once biggest online Facebook Syrian defence group “The Syrian Revolution; The Untold Story” which I was a proud member of for many years, and had written many articles for, has turned into a group run by Christian Zionists and Syrians of highly suspicious agendas who endorse their actions.
Moreover, those Syrian admins have even knowingly allowed the Christian Zionist admins to perpetrate lies, slander, endanger and defame Syrian patriots. And when they were given the benefit of the doubt and alerted to what they were doing, knowingly or unknowingly, they remained defiant and steadfast on their path of destruction. This can only indicate that they knew exactly what they were doing, and they knew that it is against Syria’s interest.
They do not need to be named at this stage, but a time will come when they will be named and shamed, and this time is coming soon, and eventually they will face justice.

WHEN THE FAKES FLAKE By The Kadis 5 May 2017

(By “The Kadis”)
5 May 2017

There has been a lot of discussion about who is and who is not Syrian. For some claiming to support Syria, it is totally contradictory to what Syria is about when they campaign against those who have exposed or objected to the Christian Zionist incursion into Syria. Tellingly, these characters accuse patriotic Syrians, Lebanese-Syrians or other Levantines of going on a “Jihad” against Christian Zionists. When this happened it was totally justifiable and warranted. Hence we can forever turn the table around on these apologists for Christian Zionism and employ the term they used, “Jihad”, to describe their activities against the Syrian patriots and their family members.
These “Jihadists” are in a constant state of frenzy to support a Christian Zionist on a mission to Syria. They went into a meltdown when serious questions were asked as to why staunch Palestinian solidarity activists associated closely with and defended the Christian Zionists.
Curiously, this group have a worrying obsession with insisting that the Sykes-Picot boundaries are strictly adhered to in line with the wishes of the powers victorious in World War One. That agreement split a region known for most of recorded history as “Greater Syria”, Just about everyone has relatives spanning from Palestine, Jordan, Lebanon and Syria.
Some of these characters feel compelled to tell some of the people of the region what their identity is and, in their ignorant and twisted existence, pronounce who is a “real” Syrian and who is a “fake” Syrian.
Why would a group of supporters of Syria be obsessed with who is Syrian and who is not when they themselves are not Syrian? What we are beginning to see now is the result of a break down in the alleged on-line Syria support groups.
It all started to fall apart when certain key people leading the larger Syrian groups put their egos before the cause and, as a result, were unable to see the forest from the trees and, in their attempt to save their egos, they opened up the doors for whatever support from anyone regardless. Just like corruption leading up to the War on Syria gained momentum, and thereby allowed armies to cross the borders into Syria unchecked, those corrupt egos opened up the doors for a horde of different armies.
First came the army of 5th Columnists who were trying to dig a wedge between Syria and her international allies. Then came the army of scavengers who, upon realising that Syria was gaining the upper hand, they too wanted a bite of the cherry. From people who didn’t know where Syria was on the map, or even worse, supported her nemesis i.e., Israel, they overnight turned into staunch supporters of Syria and dared to call her their second home.
The scavengers came in different colours and flavours, but the most dangerous of these were and continue to be the Christian Zionists.
Around the same time, another group was formed, the group of dubious characters who can best be described as “hired pens”. But those hired pens needed to have their own little armies to prop them up and keep them up high with the best. They therefore hired noisy thugs within Syria and outside her.
Lying and fabricating stories, especially those meant to defame and discredit genuine Syrian activists, was part and parcel of the daily chores of those thugs.
So there you go, from corrupt egos who employed and relied on 5th columnists, thereby leading to the creation of scavengers, hired pens and thugs, the picture was complete and all they needed was to repeat the lies over and over and over again until simple minded people too lazy to do their own investigation, believed the lies.
But, it was only a question of time before those different groups fought among themselves and within each other, and what we are seeing today is just the beginning. Just like the former anti-Syrian cocktail has broken up, resulting in each element of it scurrying and trying to establish its own gain or instead find an escape route, those supposed non-Syrian pro-Syria activists who ironically claim to love Syria but hate Syrians, will soon be snarling at each other in more ways than anyone could imagine. Just wait and see.
To an outside observer, this may sound like the pro-Syria support movement is falling apart. This could not be further from the truth, because, those implants were never at any stage a part of the movement. They are imposters, and the war they fought was not very different in essence from that of any of the various terrorist military groups. They all fought in different ways and they will all be defeated, each in their own way, because, at the end of the day, Syria is for Syrians, and non-Syrians who are genuine in their support for Syria, and thankfully there are many of them whom Syrians greatly appreciate, they understand that their role is in lending a hand, not in taking lead. They understand the meaning of support and the difference between this great human passion and that of orientalism and exceptionalism.

By Intibah Kadi. 30 April 2017

Over the past few years Joshua Tartakovsky gained the trust of many in our movement, including quite prominent members who made videos and wrote articles with him or for him. This is no judgement on our comrades as these type of operatives are professional. On exactly what date Joshua suddenly morphed back into his original form, I am unsure, but his recent article about Syria shows his vicious, Israeli attitude to his enemy Syria.

Dear Comrades, this is a warning to you. We have experienced countless such agents from many different but probably related entities including the huge Christian Zionist movement that Zionism relies on for its existence, some strange fascist and fake Left groups from a few corners of the world, the Unification Church (the “Moonies”) and so on. I have no idea about the budget in Israel, but in the USA the budget for creating fake videos about Syria and for paying operatives to infiltrate our movement on the social media is enormous. The figures are mind boggling.

We actually had our first serious experience of this strategy in the Syria online defence movement in the first half of the War on Syria when agents attempted to sway us all away from respecting and supporting the allies of Syria. The operatives still remain among us and are protected unfortunately. That’s when a few of us began to come under serious fire as we exposed their plans.

Having respect for a Professor who avidly read anything new Ghassan wrote in order to speed up his big learning curve about Syria in those early days, I asked him why some of our new rising stars from the West support or even work with an agent from this duo whose Syrian partner’s fingerprints, according to several highly informed Syrians, only fit that of Rifa’at al Assad. The opinion offered was that as long as the agents or suspects make the right noises about Syria, bar the condemnation of Syria’s allies, then they have free game to roam around our community. In my opinion that is, at the very least, poor leadership coming from the Western supporters pro-Syria camp

Back to Tartakovsky. Like a true operative, he created a story of redemption about himself. That was in late 2014. He rapidly gained the trust of so many. Joshua is a graduate from the London School of Economics and another one of these who applied to Stratfor for employment and hence, courtesy of Wikileaks dump on Stratfor, we got access to his CV.

Joshua appears to not be formally employed, doesn’t get paid for media appearances, travels incessantly, runs an add free website from a stand-alone server, and had oodles of cash to pay contributors to his, “gianalytics” website (seems to be gone now with another one getting established). He paid much more than anyone else apparently and hinted at wanting exclusivity. We know the payment scale as Joshua tried to recruit Ghassan Kadi after one of his employees recommended Kadi. Fortunately, already I had worked out that something wasn’t right with Joshua and Ghassan politely declined. On offer back then was 150 Euros for “6k or more characters without spaces, or 100Euros for 2.5kor more characters without spaces”.

So, Joshua launched himself into our movement in late 2014 and, by 2015, with his seemingly endless resources, travelled to many hot spots in the world and set himself up in Greece. Just from his FB posts, and who knows how many other travels went unannounced, he travelled to these places in that year; January he was in Hungary and Ukraine, February around Greece, April in Poland and Russia (Moscow) and then Donetsk, in May he was again in Moscow, then July in New York, and zipped back to Donetsk a few days later, then back to Moscow in October and again to Donetsk and then on to Cuba and so on. Apparently he was desperate to get into Syria.

I believe I am quite diligent with my investigations into matters that I think threaten the State of Syria but more so inside the FB Syria Defence community as that is my main forum for defending Syria. I don’t do things out of vindictiveness. I inquire and act on things based on facts. So at the end of January 2016, I respectfully approached a Professor, knowing he is close to some of Joshua’s employees. I gave the evidence and he agreed that definitely this Joshua was “almost certainly an Israeli agent” and that maybe we should have a FB page to share information on “these types”. He told me that he informed a close friend who is a “gianalytics” employee and that indeed he was employed to write “pro-Syria and pro-Iran” stuff. So that was good.

And here is the wash that became so typical in our online movement.

Evidence is shown, the facts are glaring at members of our community, but, they go into denial. The irony is that when it suits their comfort zone, many are adept at research and exposing issues that the main stream media lies about, but engage in “suspension of disbelief” when an inconvenient “conspiracy” is staring at them or has actually engulfed them.

I thought the evidence I had provided and the endorsement of the Professor would alert all to quit their jobs at “gianalytics” but alas, it didn't happen and even worse, shortly after one of our Syrian icons made a video with Joshua. I am sure, had she been given the evidence I provided, she would have steered clear from this Joshua.

(1)What is the lesson here?

(2)What was the ultimate aim of Tartakovsky when he re-modelled himself late 2014 to become “one of us” and then pushed the “eject” button later on?

(3)Why did he go about with all his cash and resources to collect all the well-known writers and analysts in our community, allowing them the freedom to write their stuff on his website?

(4)Was it all some very elaborate information collecting project?

(5)Did he develop close relationships with those he paid to publish and did he learn a lot from them that was of intelligence use?

(6)How do we apply these learnings in this case in order to be more aware of other threats around us?

I welcome discussion on this.
