The White Helmets In Depth

Are the White Helmets worthy of a Nobel Peace Prize or are they the propaganda arm of ISIS? Or both? Below is our running collection of evidence tying the White Helmets to ISIS.

Who Are The White Helmets?

The White Helmets are officially known as the Syrian Civil Defense. According to their website, "When the bombs rain down, the Syrian Civil Defence rushes in. In a place where public services no longer function these unarmed volunteers risk their lives to help anyone in need - regardless of their religion or politics. Known as the White Helmets these volunteer rescue workers operate in the most dangerous place on earth." The White Helmets operate primarily in rebel held territories.

The White Helmets were nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in 2016, but they did not win.

A documentary about the White Helmets won the Oscar for best documentary in 2017.

HOWEVER, a large amount of evidence suggests they work for ISIS.

Who Founded Them?

Le Mesurier's Connections

James Le Mesurier is credited with founding the White Helmets back in March 2013, as his own website claims. Le Mesurier is a former British Armed Forces Officer who has worked for the United Nations, European Union, the U.K. Foreign and Commonwealth Office and the private sector.

Who Funds Them?

According to the WH website, "Syria Civil Defence receives funding (through Mayday Rescue and Chemonics) from the governments of the UK, Holland, Denmark, Germany, Japan, and the USA."

Donations we know of include:

$23 million from the U.S. via USAID as of March 2016.

DKK 60 million from Denmark.

£32 million as of November 2016 from the U.K.

They have raised over $12 million US dollars from their own 'Hero Fund' on their website.
