BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:10 A.M.) – Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Canada and the US had requested Israel’s help in evacuating a contingent of White Helmets from Syria, in a statement issued from Jerusalem on Sunday.

“In the last few days, United States President Donald Trump, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, and several others asked for our help in assisting hundreds of Syrian “White Helmets,” Netanyahu said.

He stated that the White Helmets had found themselves in life-threatening danger.

“I therefore permitted their transfer through Israel to additional countries, as an important humanitarian step,” stated the Israeli prime minister.

Israel helped evacuate some 800 members of the White Helmets and their families from Syria on Saturday, according to media reports citing the IDF.

They were evacuated from areas experiencing heavy fighting. They reportedly entered Jordan and from there will be re-settled in Western countries.

There’s a lot of framing going on in Western media, and their story doesn’t make sense.
Why couldn’t the White Helmets step on the green buses to Idlib?
Why wouldn’t Assad honor the brave rescuers that saved Syrian lives?
Why couldn’t those White Helmets go into a reconciliation program like the jihadis could?

What’s interesting is that he has obviously extorted some sort of bribe from those countries, and the reason why he speaks publicly is so he can blackmail later on if need be. What a brilliantly evil cretin he is, a compliment he might say.

I’d use the term diabolical to describe his current and past behaviors. These 800 belong to various proxy armies that could not escape to the US base on the Jordan border. Israel has supports the terrorist groups on its border. They were evacuated at night for a reason. It would not bode well with the Israel public to know their country supports Al-Qaudi.

Oh, with about 170-180 IQ, I doubt him being a cretin at all and not so evil : if you want pure evil, Qassem Soleimani isn’t nicknamed Keyser Soze without reason! Zarqawi isn’t the REAL founder of ISIS, Soleimani is… “What’s interesting is that he has obviously extorted some sort of bribe from those countries” => Well, you know, with the military help Israel gets from the USA, he doesn’t needs to blackmail e.g. like Golda Meir blackmailed Nixon in 1973. In fact, I’m a bit surprised the demand came from Trump and Trudeau. It’s very probable this was after… Read more »

Your Hasbara is quite boring already. Go to steal something instead of writing pure jooshit.

Huh? I don’t get it… Hasbara is Israeli propaganda, therefore, PRO Israeli
Jooshit is anti-Jewish (but in this case we can assume) ANTI-Israeli.

So a) To whom are you replying? and b) Are you saying that person is pro or anti Israeli? :/

Cascos blancos no fueron trasladados junto a otros terroristas, prefirieron llevárselo a sus mercenarios, ¿Cuál será el plan malévolo de los conspiradores.

He will be using this as a trump card next time he goes on the slaughter of women and children again! How he saved the eu and u.s. bacon by not allowing questions to be asked of the white helmet rats.

What surprises me is why Qatar is not taking in these WH guys? None of Moslems who are escaping from Iraq & Syria or any ME country wanna go to Saudi/Qatar/Iran/Egypt/UAE asking for asylum rather for them their promised land is in EU/US West. Why do these guys have to be taken into an EU/US/Canadian country? Basically a non holy, Non Moslem Kafur country and that too being assisted by the Jooish who are even supposed to be the biggest enemy of Moslems? These WH guys are so scared that they don’t want to be shifted to Idlib in Syria… Read more »
