Growing A Local Peace Economy Daily #186


“Instead of taking a life, I want to save a life.” – Khaled Omar of the White Helmets

Daily Practice: The White Helmets are 1,200 rescue workers in Syria. Instead of being pulled into fighting they decided to save lives and have saved some 56,000 lives in 3 years. A beautiful expression of growing their local peace economy in the midst of war. The peace economy creates conditions conducive for life. What are you doing to create conditions conducive to life in your community. How can you do more of that?

    Pyotr Arlanch, I meant Code Pink brother. I use to respect them(Code Pink) a great deal, because they protested against every single war since the 90s, often getting arrested.Now they turn around and embrace the White Helmet propaganda ….it is beyond disappointing.

    Ask to real people living in Syria what they think about white helmets, not ask to geoge clooney or ben afflek . As individual who took part to many rallies for peace i consider this behaviour of code pink a betryal!

    These White Helmets work hand in hand with the terrorists in Syria, catapulting the propaganda that only civilians in rebel held areas are victims of this war. They never pull anyone out of the rubble in West Aleppo or Damascus. Where is your lionization for first responders in government held areas? I have been a supporter of Code Pink in the past, but please do not be seduced by the anti-anti-war left.

    Stop the war propaganda. If the US Isreal NATO Gulf States didn’t arm and support the terrorists in Syria this so called civil war wouldn’t even be happening. White Helmets are new face of mercenaries carrying out acts of terror on a sovereign state. As a supposed anti war group you should not be supporting White Helmets.

    WTF? Doesn’t Codepink know that the ‘White Helmets’ is a propaganda tool of the US and UK? Please wake up and expand your information on Syria. See the concise article “Seven Steps of Highly Effective Manipulators” for expose of White Helmet origins. See online petition to NOT givem them Nobel Prize. See many articles by Vanessa Beeley, Corey Morningstar and others.

    You have been manipulated. Please study this and issue correction to educate your many followers and fans (including me) about the error. Everyone makes mistakes. This is one.

    Isn’t it a crime to support terrorism? Are you people stupid promoting Al Qaeda? Your credibility has blown away for supporting terrorist groups. Their blood is now on your hands.

    I am blown away by this latest from Code Pink. Like Clinton, Medea protested Bush and asked for sanctions against Iraq not overt invasion. Now she promotes the child beheaders and heart eaters of the Al Queda Medic/PR support the White Helmets. I am blown away by this latest from Code Pink. Like Clinton, Medea protested Bush and asked for sanctions against Iraq not overt invasion. Now she promotes the child beheaders and heart eaters of the Al Queda Medic/PR support the White Helmets. Please White Womyn 4 peace, I know you care more than just about the womyn of your race and passported country. Why have you forgotten to protest HRC “Killary” and get your country, your Democratic party, out of other less wealthy folks. We know you are comfortable and bless your public relations. But your support for the Iraq sanctions killed all too many Iraqi children. Your support now for the Nusra Front that during photo ops wear white helmets and at other times use dull knives to cut into the necks of 12 year old Syrian children until their cries muffle by sick gargle and the blood spurts as the child dies.
    Please Medea, you can’t continue your advertisement as a comfortable well compensated world traveler and attention getter, postor child for the Non-Profit Industrial Complex, aiding and abetting child murder, torture and rape of civilian Syrians. Please consider opposing your government’s funding arming of these moderate child killers. We all don’t support President Assad but he was elected by Syrians, and would any member of Code PINK be brave enough to help the secular Syrian army against the terrorist barbarians organized funded and lethally armed by your USA government who snipe kill and death squad teachers, journalists and other Syrian civilians? The White Helmets and their patrons in the foreign war against Syria are not syrians generally. They are the PR face of the US war against Syria. Please know that while you continue in this way the justice of history may find you guilty of war crimes like a good German during the NAZI actions. But know that even as you are guilty, I will ask that no death penalty be advocated against my former volunteer lecturer from my student organized Central America class.
    its never too late, please help the children of Syria or at least stop killing and harming them.

    “Instead of being pulled into fighting”?! Wake up! The White helmets are armed, embedded with al Qaeda groups and paid by the big powers. See this video:
