Is Syria the next target for Globalist intervention?
According to Human Rights Watch, a supposedly independent global human rights watchdog group, there has been rampant torture and illegal arrests occurring in Syria. Human Rights Watch reports,
Human Rights Watch interviewed 19 people who had been detained in Daraa, Damascus, Douma, al-Tal, Homs, and Banyas, as well as several families of detainees. Those interviewed who had been detained included two women and three teenagers, ages 16 and 17. Human Rights Watch also collected information from Syrian activists about dozens of people detained in Daraa and Banyas, and reviewed the footage of some detainees released from Daraa, whose bodies appeared to have marks from torture.
How they can declare the testimony of 19 people “rampant torture” I’m not quite sure. However, if these allegations are true, there is indeed human rights violations occurring. The same human rights that the United States violates when extralegally arresting, torturing and murdering supposed terrorists. The same human rights that the United States violates when conducting secret military tribunals at Guantanimo Bay and while people are held without trial or charges. Human rights violations only really count if it is in a third-world country, or more likely only in countries the Globalists seek control of.
In an article published in 2009, Jeffrey Goldberg, national correspondent for The Atlantic wrote,
In other words, yes, the director of Human Rights Watch’s Middle East division is attempting to raise funds from Saudis, including a member of the Shura Council (which oversees, on behalf of the Saudi monarchy, the imposition in the Kingdom of the strict Wahhabi interpretation of Islamic law) in part by highlighting her organization’s investigations of Israel, and its war with Israel’s “supporters,” who are liars and deceivers. It appears as if Human Rights Watch, in the pursuit of dollars, has compromised its integrity.
Quite interesting that they would speak out against the Syrian Government while staying completely silent while Saudis are doing the same thing. In fact, Secretary General of the Islamic Renewal Party Mohamad al-Massari told PressTV,
Second, not only was there an addressing of issues of those accused under acts of terrorism but this is only a fraction, maybe seven or eight thousand. The rest of them were detained because in just one day they expressed their view more boldly than it should be. They expressed misgivings about the regime, trivial policies like the municipalities failure in issues of floods like in Jeddah.
It’s not only terrorism but a very wide number of issues have been addressed by the people in a very mild level of criticism; nevertheless, they were taken, tortured, and imprisoned. The style of imprisonment for anyone accused of terrorism, or even distributing on a radio broadcast, or distributing leaflets is something like five years.
So we are talking about a level of oppression only exceeded by communist and extreme fascist regimes in the recent past by Europe and the Soviet Union…
Meanwhile, Obama supports the Syrian Government Human Rights Watch is now targeting. World Tribune reports,
Obama, who has assured Arab leaders that the Arab revolt would not hamper U.S. policy, was said to side with the Assad supporters in NSC and the State Department. On April 12, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said the administration, amid the Arab revolt, would launch another diplomatic offensive to establish a Palestinian state throughout the West Bank.
“The president will be speaking in greater detail about America’s policy in the Middle East and North Africa in the coming weeks,” Ms. Clinton told the U.S.-Islamic World Forum. “America’s core interests and values have not changed, including our commitment to promote human rights, resolve long-standing conflicts, counter Iran’s threats and defeat Al Qaida and its extremist allies. This includes renewed pursuit of comprehensive Arab-Israeli peace.”
The Telegraph has released an “unverified amateur video” of a Syrian protest in which activists are seen running and gunshots are heard in the background. There was no actual footage of security forces firing. Thus the inclusion of “unverified” as the gunshots could easily have been edited in. The Telegraph describes the video,
The first amateur video posted on a social website on Friday shows a crowd of Syrians running in Homs, the scene of recent crackdowns by the President Bashar al-Assad’s regime, as gunshots in the background.
The other video posted on a social website shows Syrian security forces beating protesters while they are tied up and lying on the ground in the coastal city of Banias.
The second part of the video is indeed brutal treatment but the first part of the video does not seem to hold as much water as the clip is brief and quite inconclusive. Only time will tell if this video and other reports on social media networks will be utilized in order to justify yet another “humanitarian intervention”.
Every day that goes by this situation becomes more muddled and riddled with hypocrisy. Human Rights Watch is obviously not an independent human rights watchdog group, or else they would be speaking out just as strongly against the Saudi government. Unfortunately, HRW is just like every other Globalist group in that they serve their monetary and political interests, not human rights.
In fact, a moment’s research reveals,
In its Annual Reports, HRW always claims that it “accepts no government funds, directly or indirectly.” However, that was a lie according to the 1995 list, and it is still a lie. The Dutch Novib – now part of the Oxfam group – is a government-funded aid organisation, and in turn it funded the activities of Human Rights Watch Africa in the Great Lakes region and Angola. Oxfam itself is primarily funded by the British government and the European Union, see their annual report. It is also funded by the United States Agency for International Development, USAID. Oxfam in turn partly funds Novib, so some of that money finds it way to HRW. Both Oxfam and Novib funded the HRW report on the Rwanda genocide. So, if it is as accurate as HRW’s claim not to accept any indirect government funding, look elsewhere for the truth.
Even more importantly,

Now does that list of Globalist elite foundations controlling the funding sound like an independent group to you? Do you really think that a group that clearly weighs funding over the treatment of human beings, evidenced by their silence regarding Saudi crimes, would potentially upset one of their $100,000+ donors? I seriously doubt it.
Oh but wait, Human Rights Watch is independent right? They sure claim to be:
We are a fully independent non-governmental organization, supported by contributions from private individuals and foundations worldwide. In order to maintain our independence, we accept no money from any government, directly or indirectly.
If one takes a moment, one skim Human Rights Watch’s 28 page 2010 Financial Report PDF here. One might notice that they seem to be doing as much investing as they should be investigating human rights violations. They have an extensive portfolio and a massive endowment, clearly they don’t like to make their sponsors angry.
The New Republic reported this statement from a board member of HRW,
“I think we tend to go where there’s action and where we’re going to get reaction,” rues one board member. “We seek the limelight—that’s part of what we do.”
In HRW’s 2010 Annual Report they write,
As the world order changes, Human Rights Watch
must find new strategies, new allies, and new
ways to bring greater justice and security to
people around the world.
It doesn’t take a genius to see HRW is yet another Globalist tool in the war against sovereignty and the destabilization that will eventually lead toward the supposed solution of one world government. Decrees from HRW carry a lot of weight in the diplomatic world, evidenced by the power of their reports on Saddam Hussein preceding Operation Iraqi Freedom. Will we witness yet another Globalist intervention in Syria as well? Only time can tell but this much is clear: the destabilization campaign is in full effect.
