Above and below are PDFs of two Powerpoint talks prominent Syrian doctors give in Buswell’s Hotel Dublin at 12 pm 31 January, with Mr George Galloway chairing. The original files, as well as some supporting ones, may be downloaded at wesavesyria.com/Homs The talks and Powerpoints are on two of the most sickening war crimes committed in the course of the war on Syria. The speakers are prominent medics, one a cardiologist and the other a surgeon. More to the point, they are relatives and neighbours of these kidnapped and slaughtered children.
There are a number of minor mistakes in these Powerpoints. It was, for example, not Deputy Coveney but Deputy Mick Wallace, who visited the two schools that were suicide bombed in Homs and who met the relatives of the slaughtered and kidnapped of Foua/Kafraya.
The results of the December 2017 votes in the Irish Parliament on death by sanctions may be seen here. The vote on the emasculating amendment, which specifically asked for the kidnapping of the children of Foua and Kafraya to be condemned, can be seen here. Most deputies cannot even condemn slaughtering children and kidnapping the survivors.
When I return for my eight and ninth visits to Syria at the end of October and for Christmas Day. Your money will be given directly and in full with zero deductions to orphanages, women’s groups and others who look after Syria’s tens of thousands of orphans. My self-funded journey will take me and my 24 strong group to Damascus, Maaloula, Saidnaya, Homs, Aleppo, Palmyra and Deir Ezzor, where we hope to cross the Euphrates. Your money is important to help Syria’s unsung heroes give these child victims immediate help and some kind of a future. Securing them a future will take a lot of work and examples, such as you can do by giving in this direct way to those who need your help the most.
As I will be leaving for Damascus on 22 October and again on 15 December, your help is needed before those dates. Though I will also be distributing $10,000 raised from other sources and about $2000 of electronic equipment, the more I can distribute, the more optimism we can give to them.
The photo above is of me in front of a tank in Maaloula on Easter Sunday 2014, just after the Syrian Army freed it. Maaloula like Aleppo, Homs and most other places has not been forgotten and its women and orphans left to their own devices. The road back for them will be a long one but your contributions can help a lot.
On our last visit in March 2017, we gave the money we had collected to the Melkite Church, the Syriac Orthodox Church in Aleppo, to women working on art therapy with orphans in the Old City of Damascus and to other good causes and people.
I am an Irish citizen, a professor of finance who has written extensively on Syria and who has brought Syrian Muslim and Christian leaders to the Irish Parliament form my own resources. This is the latest in a number of ongoing initiatives to help those who need help the most.

Donald Trump illegal bombing of a Syria airport solely dedicated to attacking ISIS is the latest in the USA’s 16 year-long hot war against the secular Arab world, which it wages, based on a tissue of lies, with Al Qaeda, Qatar and Saudi Arabia and which it previously waged in Afghanistan with its same repulsive proxies of Al Qaeda, the so-called CIA’#s Arab Legion.
When people ask what does the “benevolent” USA get out of all this, the answer is all that US policy in the Middle East always wanted: proxy states, their oil money, arms sales and control. The destruction of both Libya and Iraq were hugely profitable not only for the oil but for the funds, art galleries and museums the USA and its proxies looted. The fact that the USA’s allies, most notably Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Israel, have, along with the USA itself, track records in such matters should be noted.
But what of the children is the cry that is supposed to stampede our emotions into supporting Israel, the USA, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar into killing more Syrian children? Ok, let’s think of the children, the dead ones to begin with. Last week, the USAF incinerated 200 of them in Mosul and not a peep of protest was heard in the West from rent a crowd. This morning, the USA murdered six Syrians and orphaned many more.
But they were not gassed, you say. True, but the kids in the above photo were gassed to death three years ago in Akrama school in Homs (45 were murdered then) and there was not a peep of protest then by rent a crowd because the moderate rebels. the USA’s proxies, did it. The US did not try to bully the UN and nor did it threaten illegal, unilateral action of the sort that allowed the USA, her allies and their proxies ravage Libya and which we again saw last night. The USA and her allies have repeatedly turned a blind eye to their rebel proxies gassing Iraqi and Syrian kids.
The USA is the core of the problem, and is not the solution. It has destroyed Iraq and illegally occupies part of Syria and murders Syrians in concert with its allies, who are amongst the most despicable regimes on earth.
This is a fake false flag attack and those calling for no fly zones, safe zones and so on have, working on their “successful” Libyan model, been calling for them for the last seven years as a means of destroying Syria and handing it over to the butchers and cannibals who rule Idlib. They have not only been caught lying again and again but have been caught stockpiling and using chemical weapons both in Aleppo and in Iraq. They have been caught with the smoking gun on countless occasions.
The USA, their Saudi and Qatari allies and their ISIS and al Qaeda proxies have paid pro humanitarian bombing groups like Human Rights Watch, GOAL and Amnesty International (which encouraged the widescale lynching of blacks in Libya) shilling for them.
I mention that not to boast but to point out that literally hundreds of British and Irish based professional;s are up to their eyes in jihad in Syria, Iraq and Libya and I have entries on many of them here.
For my own part, I intend to update this basic reference guide which you can download for free; the work of PhD Chemistry student and MIT associate researcher Mimi Laham, videod above, appears more than once in it disproving earlier chemical weapons’ claims. War or no war, I also intend to return to government-held Syria for both Halloween and for Christmas, both of which are celebrated in government-held Syria and both of which bring an automatic death sentence in the side the USA supports and has always supported.
So, yes, I will continue to think of the children. The children the USA and its proxies murder, the children they cynically use in their snuff videos and other propaganda and the children of liberated Aleppo, photographed above, the USA, her allies and their proxies have scarred for life, just as they previously scarred the children of Vietnam, El Salvador, Nicaragua, the Philippines, Mexico, Yemen, Iraq, Libya and so many other places the USA with her exceptionalism, her Manifest Destiny and her rampant greed and insufferable arrogance destroyed.
The Syrian people, their army, which has dispatched into Hades well in excess of 70,000 foreign mercenaries, and their secular government have stayed strong despite the unprecedented attacks on them. Once Iran, Russia, China and Lebanese and other irregulars continue to stand with them there is hope for Syria, and for the world. Thanks to Syria’s enemies, there is no other hope.
The St Petersburg slaughter by the Syrian rebels has been forgotten in the rush to bomb Syria; #syriahoax trended on twitter with some informative posts; the abandoned Christians of Mhardeh, N. Hama together with the Syrian and Russian Armies, are preparing to make a last stand against the Saudi, Turkish and Qatari rebels the USA arms, trains and funds: it is imperative for the USA’s grand plan to do an Iraq on Syria and cleanse it of Christians; sanctions are still killing Syrian children at a higher rate than ISIS; the next round of fake talks are due to begin soon and the #SyriaHoax was implemented to strengthen the hand of the rebel “negotiators” whose forte is caging women and organ harvesting children,The rather than arguing their indefensible corner. The fact that Israel has said it will step up its pro ISIS humanitarian bombing of Syria shows us just how bad things are.
Assad and Me: I was in Homs and Damascus for the Syrian Presidential election. Assad has an overwhelming mandate from the Syrian people, as one would expect a war President to have. Trump has none. His troops illegally occupy Syria and he murders Syrian soldiers and civilians. In Syria, he is the criminal.
Once Assad Goes: So too will Christians, Druze and other minorities as they will have no future there, save as sex slaves or spare parts in the rebels’ organ harvesting factories. Of course, this war is not about Assad at all but rather about replacing the secularism he represents. Nor is it about promoting democracy for, it it were, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar could have no role to play. Nor is it about murdering children for if it were, then Saudi Arabia and her German, American, French and British arms suppliers would be in the media’s cross hairs because of their unparalleled war crimes in Yemen. But then the media with its fake news and its serial collaboration in war crimes should also be in the cross hairs.
The above people, along with very many of their compatriots, belong in The Hague. But the USA says it will invade if any of its citizens are tried as the war criminals that they are. Although the hypocrisy of the USA and her proxies, toadies, flunkeys and sundry allies is bad enough, their willful slaughter of Syria’s innocents, children included, is beyond disgusting. If Trump really must bomb any belligerent, he should bomb the USA, the guiltiest party to this and so many other conflicts.
There is, of course, my other infinitely more honourable exit strategy, that entails working with Russia, Armenia, Iran and other peace makers and not enriching the USA’s arms manufacturers or kowtowing to Saudi and Qatari despots. Trump has made his money. He does not have to be another Clinton or Obama, another carpet bagger on the make. He could try to be human. And respect humans, Syrians included, even if that is the antithesis of USA foreign policy.
Chemical and biological weapons are the poor country’s equivalent of the rich country’s nuclear arsenal. Syria possessed chemical weapons as a weapon of last resort against an Israeli invasion. Because Israel currently illegally occupies parts of Syria and Israel collaborates with Al Qaeda in the Golan against UN, Druze and Syrian forces and because Israel is now threatening a “humanitarian war” against Syria, this is a very real possibility but, much to Israel’s delight, Syria no longer has any deterrent to stop further aggression..
Following the Ghouta false flag attack (pp106 et seq), where David Cameron and other war mongers in hock to Saudi Arabia wanted to use to do a Libya on Syria, Russia brokered a peace deal which meant Syria surrendering its chemical stockpile in return for Russia’s assistance with the defence of Syria.
Though these frauds, liars and charlatans are easily exposed, the problem is they are funded and trained by the West and so their lies never stop. Though that would be ok in a kindergarten (schools for babies the rebels regularly bomb), people die as a result of their criminality and of our failure to stop them.
Check these links here and here to consider the case of Louise Mensch who says the most bizarre and stupid things about Putin but is rewarded very handsomely for it in the USA. Until these puppets can be effectively muzzled and the CIA ventriloquist taken to task, the killing will continue.
Great Deal to See Syria: Only $450US for 10 days, 9 nights.
Overview/Pricing/Strategy/Caveats et al: This $450US is a ball park figure a leading Syrian tour operator gave me. It is for bed and half board in good Syrian hotels for 9 nights and 10 days. The idea is to allow interested people see the human, cultural, culinary, religious, secular and other treasures of secular Syria the Gulf States and their NATO allies are destroying with their sanctions and proxy “rebels”, to see how GOAL, Hand in Hand for Syria, OXFAM and other dubious outfits fit into this game plan, and to offer pecuniary and other practical help to Syria’s Christians, Muslims, atheists, women and children with a variety of projects where, crucially, Syrians and their existing institutions, rather than foreigners and their CIA/MI6 agendas, are in control.
We are again soliciting funds which will again be passed on with zero deductions to our Syrian partner groups. We hope to have this on a more formal basis by September 2017.
Arrival Beirut: 26 October 2017. Departure Beirut: 4 November 2017.
Key Dates: The key dates are Halloween, 31 October, All Saints’ Day 1 November, All Souls’ Day 2 November 2017, 100th anniversary of Balfour Declaration (where Perfidious Albion and France gave a country they did not own to people who had never been there) 2 November 2017. Though some people with too much time on their hands object to one or more of these dates and events for one reason or another, they are the next dates we can build around and we already have significant uptake in Australia, Germany and Ireland, as well as a few thousand $$ to donate.
Key Monetary Target: is to raise money for Syrian (and Syrian-Palestinian for 2 November) children and their guardians. Much of this is ring-fenced for art therapy. Whether the kids and their guardians want to dress up for Halloween or do anything on the other days is up to them and their guardians. We, quite rightly, have no say in the matter.
Though donors can stipulate money to go to wherever and whatever they choose and we will facilitate, we are making a special effort to help and salute Syria’s Assyrian children, not least because the “rebels” kidnapped and organ harvested the kids in the above photo a few days after they went out trick and treating. We also hope to branch out into the countryside where, currently, only Armenia and Russia give help, with little Armenia giving more than the entire EU (which makes a fortune selling weapons to Saudi Arabia and Qatar to murder Syrian and Yemeni children with).
Organisational Units: We will work in units of approximately six persons and organise bespoke tours and apply for free group visas with that number in mind. This will allow us to be flexible and for all of us to achieve our objectives, which are a mixture of tourism, fact-finding, helping, shopping (the economy badly needs it), learning and planning for the next visit. (I’ll be back for Christmas). Thus, for example, teamsof six or more coming from Australia will not be delayed in Beirut waiting for planes to comes from other places.
Here is the main itinerary
Day 1: Arrival Beirut, transfer to Damascus, dinner & overnight in Damascus. This would entail groups (of six or so) arriving on more or less the same plane and then being driven the 3 hour journey to Damascus to freshen up and wait for kick-off. Drivers wil take care of all paperwork, including visas which would be completed long before arrival. I would need relevant details of participants long before that.
Day 2: Damascus City Tour. Damascus is the world’s oldest inhabited city and is replete with history. A life time, let alone a day, does not do it justice. Local volunteers will help with shopping and with visiting such places as the Ummayad Mosque, Straight Street and, subject to security, the Sayyidah Zaynab Mosque. The shopping is of interest as most goods are locally sourced. One of the reasons for this war to wipe Syria off the map is to replace all their spices, perfumes and hand crafted kitchen goods with a huge shopping mall of imported junk products and junk food, much as already has been done in the West Bank. Syria is just too independent and replete with history for some folk.
Day 3: Damascus-Maaloula-Damascus. Maaloula was always on every tour of Syria. However, NATO’s rebels, working on Turkey’s orders, have deliberately gutted the place. Some Australian groups have developed practical links with the town and will overnight there to help with financing and other important logistics. As Maaloula remains a military zone, we were the first “tourists” to reach it in years. It is worth a visit to see the level of depravity NATO and the Gulf States have lumbered Syria with and why no one should truck with these demons.
Day 4: Damascus-Adra-Homs– Krak des Chevaliers.- Damascus. NATO’s rebels did severe damage to the Krak des Chevaliers World Heritage site. The moderate rebels baked locals alive in Adra and they committed unspeakable atrocities, in which Western collaborators like Marie Colvin were fully complicit, in Homs before the Syrian Army sent them packing. Much of Homs resembles Stalingrad after the Nazis, Germany’s equivalent of the moderate rebels, surrendered.
Day 5: St George’s Monastery, Valley of the Christians, Safita, Hama. As NATO’s rebels get pummelled, they are now setting their sites on destroying these World Heritage sites. Safita was half Christian and half Alawi prior to the Genocide. Now, Sunnis, fleeing NATO’s moderate head hacking cannibal rebels, have flooded into it. Alawis and Christians cannot flee to rebel areas. The overwhelming majority of Syrians live in government-contorlled Syria. Almost all aid goes to the rebels who, as with Aleppo, Homs and Yarmouk, starve their human shields, may of whom they keep in cages, for which crimes they are allowed negotiate in Geneva and elsewhere. British newspapers approve of this treatement of “Assad loyalists” as the Indepedent puts it.
Day 6: Homs, Aleppo. The rocky road to Aleppo takes some time and is interesting in its own right as we traverse the Syrian steppes with their bee hive houses. We have several partner schools there. Please note we hace given some small help to Aleppo and we have corroborating evidence of tghat. Please note there is zero evidence GOAL, Hand in Hand for Syria or similar outfits gave any of the tens of millions of dollars they got to Syrians in Aleppo. GOAL refuse to operate in government-held Syria. They feel safer with the head hackers and cannibals of Idlib.
Day 7: Aleppo: NATO’s rebels did their best to destroy this town, whose defenders, such as the soldiers, prison warders and prisoners who defended its prison for years on end, are now the stuff of legends and about whom Hollywood would wax about them if they had been American and not being attacked by American-armed rebels. The people of Aleppo are now brushing off the dust and trying to start anew, Your dollars can help them. We stayed at a hotel beside the Hotel Baron where Charles De Gaulle and Agatha Christie stayed (but in separate rooms). We had been their first guests in five years.
Note: Hotel Baron (above) needs work and investment; its only resident is Mimi, the “Assad loyalist” cat, which is hunting down the rodents to make it as new. Our hotel, which was an education in resistance itself, less so.
Day 8: Aleppo-Saidnaya-Damascus. Saidnaya is a picture-postcard Christian town, which fended off over 30 attacks by the head-hacking, organ eating rebels. Without the help of Lebanese Muslim irregulars, this Christian town would have been over run, ransacked and looted by the Western-backed rebels.
Note: Above pictures taken in the Christian town of Saidnaya where they give the rebels the finger by parading pictures of their President along with the Madonna..
Day 9: Damascus: There is so much to do in Damascus. This allows us to wrap things up in an orderly way and plan for the next visit.
Day 10: Damascus-Beirut: The end, my friend.
Palmyra and other Attractions: These can be included once the Russian Army clears the last of the mines the rebels littered the place with. Our plans include restarting the Syrian economy with the Syrians at the helm. NATO and the Gulf States, which caused this mess, are not part of the solution.
Me in a Sunni house in the Old City of Damascus. The guys in the photo are local Shias who paid the ultimate price to defend Damascus. One notices Syrians still have furniture and other stuff designed to last. Ikea and other predators don’t like that.
As part of their campaign to destroy Syria, NATO and the Gulf States have pulled out and dusted down all the old PR tricks. Syrian men and women in Ireland or elsewhere who milk the situation to advance both themselves and the NATO/GCC agenda are not the heroes, even if the media shamelessly parade them like prize pigs. The heroes are those who did not or could not run, as well as those whose lives have been ruined or lost by trying to flee. Syrians in Ireland or elsewhere who do not try to help their compatriots and those who defend them are no benefit to Syria or the countries they wormed their way into. There are Syrians in Ireland milking this situation for their own narrow ends and their narrow and selfish ends fit into the wider NATO agenda.
These children of Maaloula and their protectors in the Syrian Arab Army are the heroes of the piece, not PR puppets like Bana, who cannot speak English and who should be put into care to spare her from the abuse the Muslim Brotherhood murder gang put her through.
This little angel and others like her are the true victims. The rebels the West supports took a suicide bomb into her kindergarten the day after this photo was taken. She and her play mates are probably long dead now.
These great women lost their children defending the values we should all defend. The West never get worked up about them and are happy to see them, their children and their grands children gang raped and organ harvested.
We should defend and help them and these orphaned kids in Homs, who are brave enough to still give the finger to the rebels and those who support them
We have just returned from another fact-finding visit to Syria and, as we will be returning there again at the end of October and again for Christmas, the invitation to you and to your more informed colleagues to visit secular Syria remains; as delegations have now gone to secular Syria from almost every other EU Parliament, the USA, whose air force is currently busily slaughtering Iraqi and Syrian civilians, will probably OK it.
During last week’s mass terrorist assault on Damascus, we were pinned down under heavy Saudi mortar and machine gun fire in the Old City of Damascus with the attached group of secular Syrian women who are bemused that, their sham feminism notwithstanding, some of your more unrepresentative and uninformed Committee members prattle as if they are de facto Islamic jihadist spokespeople ordered to blindly attack Russian diplomats, Syrian religious and civil society leaders and others infinitely more informed than they are on Syria. I respectfully think your Committee should look at that, as well as your hosting pro-terrorist front groups like the White Helmets (aka Al Qaeda’s undertakers) and how you have given credence to discredited groups like GOAL which has not only pumped tens of millions of dollars into al Qaeda controlled Syria, but which has also enabled terrorist facilitators to tour Ireland, the Oireachtas included. GOAL, along with some of your colleagues, have very serious charges to answer in relation to the ongoing genocide campaign the autocratic Gulf States are waging in Syria, Yemen, Libya and Iraq and the sleeper cells they finance in Europe, Dublin’s north inner city included.
We also visited Aleppo where EU funded rebels threw scores of postal workers off buidngs and over which so many Irish crocodile tears were shed before Russian security forces sent its head hackers and cannibals packing to Idlib, which GOAL heavily subsidises but more of that when criminal prosecutions against GOAL begin. Because we, as the attached photo from Aleppo of acclaimed Australian artist Luke Cornish with Assyrian children shows, help the victims of Ireland’s death sanctions, our hands are infinitely cleaner than those of your more disreputable colleagues. We have no Syrian blood on our hands.
For our part, we will continue to lobby more open-minded TDs and senators from all the main political parties and Independent groups in the hope of bringing secular Syrian women wishing to remain in their homeland to Ireland to testify, even though giving them or any other Arab or Aramean secularists a platform is obviously anathema to those Irish citizens beholden to the Gulf States and/or the CIA.
Again, thank you and your more honest and open-minded colleagues for doing your duty and I hope that you can give Syria’s secular women an official, unpoisoned hearing. I am copying in some of my more open-minded local TDs as well as some of your Committee members who, along with the rest of us, must make the correct moral choices on Syria, Yemen, Iraq and Libya.
I have posted pictures of those secular Syrian women and children the West has betrayed along with a copy of this letter here.
The 2017 St Patrick’s day trip to the Syrian Arab Republic was by far the best and most successful of my seven trips there during the current Crisis. This is not only because we gave thousands of dollars to community groups in Damascus, Aleppo, Homs and Maloula and that I met the most wonderful people I have ever met but because we now have professional partners to make our next visit in late October an even bigger success.
The plan is to offer a 10 day 9 night trip for $450US from Beirut airport, to Beirut airport, visas, half board and accommodation included. Already there has been a significant sign up from Australia and the plan is to offer even greater financial and other help in the communities we visit. It is one part sightseeing, one part shopping and eight parts helping the Syrian religious and secular groups we are working with.
Those communities need your help. To date, more than 40,000 Christians have been murdered by the rebels and they, along with the rest of the Syrian people, rightly feel abandoned and betrayed by the West, which pumps money into rebel-held areas such as Idlib with the controversial Irish-based NGO GOAL pumping in a staggering $53 million dollars a year but refusing to send as much as a bread roll or streak of hairy bacon into government held areas where most Syrians and all secular Syrians live. One wonders quite why the Irish government is allowing this criminal collusion between Ireland and these sick sociopaths to happen with no one calling halt but some idiotic Irish politicians actually cheering on the genocide.
Although traversing Syria is like a journey through hell, the resilience of her people in the face of the most hieneous of crimes by those the Western NGOs subsidise is also inspiring. Though the women in the above picture faced nightly daily mortar and gun attacks while we were with them, they have been enduring it on a daily basis for seven years now and so no laurels should be put our way. They have also been forced to live under the EU’s sanctions, which the Irish government supports and which have killed more Syrian children than even ISIS for the simplke reason that, as with Iraq and Yemen, the sanctions are designed to kill Syria and obliterate her people and her culture. One wonders quite why idiotic Irish politicians who applaud this criminal nihilism are not even held to account, let alone jailed for terror tactics the Nazis pioneered.
Syria resembles Ireland’s darkest days of Cromwell and the Famine where an uncaring and cynical world watches as thousands drown in coffin ships as they flee the rebels and children freeze to death or die for want of basic medicines that Ireland has in opulent abundance.
As with Thackeray and the equally odious Trevelyan at the time of the Irish Famine, so also do Western journalists and policy makers, Irish muppets included, aid and abet the Syrian genocide and few of us rally to the flag of civilisation and humanity or kick against the pricks as St Paul put it.
The Syrian people are being left to their own devices. Old men, far beyond pensionable age, let alone military fighting age, are being forced to take up arms to defend their families against hordes of organ-eating, head-hacking mercenaries that belong in a Hollywood horror movie. And Ireland, like Hitler’s willing executioners, looks away.
Against this crimson tide stand the Syrian Arab Army and an as yet unbroken people, whose dignity in adversity puts us all to shame. Syria’s Christian communities, together with their Druze and Muslim compatriots, must not carry this burden alone. We will be back for Halloween, for Christmas, for St Patrick’s Day 2018 and for however long it takes to end these grave crimes we have all been made complicit in.

Next Trip: A 10 day 9 night trip for $450US from Beirut airport, to Beirut airport, visas, half board and accommodation included. A leading Syrian tour operator will be the primary organiser. More information will follow. Bookings will close in early September as a group visa system will operate.
18,000 Syrian children have been organ-harvested in the last two years alone by Irish funded Syrian rebels on the Turkish border near to where our Paddy’s Day tour will end.
More Syrian Sanctions: are to be imposed by the USA, France and the world’s other toadies as Western ghouls crave yet more Syrian and Yemeni child corpses to harvest.
Controversial Irish NGO GOAL which pumps a whopping $50 million a year into rebel-held Syria is to merge with Oxfam. GOAL refuses to give as much as a penny roll or streak of hairy bacon to the heroic children of government-held Syria, who have endured thus far.
The Irish Road to Damascus: kicks off next week, with green-themed events in Damascus, Maloula, Saidnaya, Adra, Homs, Aleppo, Latakia and Kasab. The West cried crocodile tears for Maloula, a Christian town which speaks Aramaic, Jesus’ language, until the rebels captured it and beheaded the local priests. In Adra, the rebels baked Alawi children alive in industrial ovens. In Homs, Irish backed rebels suicide bombed kindergartens the day after I stood outside them. In Latakia, the rebels kidnapped and organ harvested hundreds of Alawi women and children. In Kasab, the rebels executed children in front of their mothers I met because they were “Armenian dogs.”
Green Lipstick for Tiny Corpses: Two world-renowned artists, who are joining us, will lead Syrian children in public art displays both to highlight their losses and to begin their very long road of catharsis under the watchful eyes of their unsung guardians who will continue to keep the ghouls at bay. The objectives here are to allow Syria’s women and children to tell their tales, and not to have Westerners acting as interlocutor.
St Patrick’s Day 2017 in Syria: The objective is to highlight and to help Syria, not to engage in Paddywhackery, except in so far as that helps the mission.
The White Hats are a group of Muslim and Christian women based in the Qalamon Hills, close to the religious pilgrim towns of Saidnaya and Malaoulah, both of which witnessed unspeakable war crimes by the invaders. Most of these women have had relatives murdered, either in the line of duty, defending their country and their communities, or simply killed out of hand by the rebels. You have to meet and see them to even begin to imagine what they and theirs have suffered.
Despite the crimes the rebels have committed against them, these women soldier on, giving succour not only to each other but to their communities which the West has largely abandoned. Though our leaders have abandoned them we should not. We are bound in conscience to stand with them and their communities.

Recipients will include women and children’s groups in Saidnaya, Ma’loula, Kasab, Yarmouk and Bab Tuma, as well as some of the scores of orphanages now active in Damascus and internally displaced groups from towns such as Raqqa, Madaya, Fuah and Kafraya.
We are also trying to establish more direct ways of sending money directly into government-controlled Syria and will be working on that. Although Western Union are very active there, we are aware of its pitfalls. We will most likely send money from our bank account in Ireland to a hand full of trusted individuals only, where we micro-audit their spending. Please email me here for more information about practical ways you can help.
This project is a work in progress. Because we have to create a financial balance between putting smiles on kids’ faces and food into their bellies, we must divide the money between necessary entertainment and purchasing imported dry foods like rice and cooking oil, which most of them can no longer afford. We also have to bear in mind that the rebels will suicide bomb any celebrations they get wind of. That said, the show will go on and all monies expended will be accounted for.
We intend to be fully open and transparent in all this and to absorb all costs ourselves, so that we may better highlight the gangsterism and outright criminality the rebels’ Muslim Brotherhood supporters have been allowed to get away with. Saving Syria is a huge project and it is important matters are done properly from the beginning so that the Syrian people can win the war and win the peace as well.
Syria is a NATO-made disaster. Help us help them. Please keep up to date by following @taigstaigs and those I follow in twitter; also check out the other volumes and the websites.
