Tipperary Peace Convention | ABOUT

BREAKING NEWS
The Syria Civil Defence White Helmets are to receive the 2016 Tipperary (Ireland) International Peace Award. The announcement was made today by Tipperary Peace Convention through its Hon. Secretary, Mr. Martin Quinn.
Today’s announcement will focus international attention on the Syrian crisis and supports those who are risking their lives to save others. The White Helmets’ selection is a testament to the enormous bravery and courage shown by these ordinary Syrians who have saved upwards on 100,000 people, and the 192 volunteers who have paid the ultimate price with their lives.
Extraordinary decision. Martin Quinn was interviewed on Morning Ireland just now. He just waffled in a *very* pompous tone when the female interviewer pointed out that the WH themselves have acknowledged past links with Islamic terrorists.

Quite a few negative comments on their FB page.

This is absolutely farcical. It seems like they are deliberately courting controversy by awarding a prize to a notoriously compromised organisation with a murky background that has been identified countless times cooperating with jihadists and Islamic extremism in Syria.

It seems like a calculated publicity stunt to give attention to an irrelevant prize ceremony that most people in Ireland never mind anywhere else haven't even heard of nor give a fiddlers about.

If their spokesman on the radio this morning is anything to go by then you can guess at the type of gormless fools they have adjudicating for their prize.

RTE interviewer feeling obliged to push a pro-Assad pro-Putin line isn't unusual in their attempt to provide balance.

WTF is the 'Tipperary Peace Prize' anyway. Do we have the Crossmolina Academy Awards too?
It's a generously funded (by us) vanity "astro turf" operation.

Sounds like they're over egged the pudding this time. They had a nice business in getting publicity by giving a nonsense award to boost the egos of various Irish Americans and other notables of the international quango circuit.

did I hear Martin McGuinness was considered, maybe I am wrong ?
Yes, that helped the white (islamic loons) helmets bag the prize. Establishment Ireland cannot be seen to offer peace prizes to People who fought against their beliefs.

Questions were ok. But she should have asked about the membership, management and funding of his outfit.

Various White Helmet "truthers"—who range from Assad and his supporters to Russian embassies, and even to Alex Jones—accuse the group of staging rescue photos, belonging to al Qaeda, and being pawns of liberal bogeyman George Soros. The story of how that conspiracy grew is a perfect distillation of how disinformation can spread unchecked, supplanting fact with frenzy where no support exists.

After all, you see even non-ISIS members raising a single finger all over the place. Like, say, Obama. Or even the White Helmets:

#WhiteHelmets psywar continues. Embedded with Al Nusra/Al Qaeda, funded by UK,US,Holland, EU over $ 60m.

If no one—not even a first responder—is worth saving in Syria, it makes it awfully easy to justify killing them.

The standard of English in that link is awful. Its basic premise is that is is crazy to link Soros/NATO to the terrorists Soros/NATO sponsor and which the CIA is now abandoning. Allied to that is the quaint belief that MI6 would not engage in the sort of psy ops White Helmets typify.

I guess you'll be buying Bana's book, a semi-literate 7 year old, whose home was in the same building as Al Queda's HQ

Ah yes, another state funded bogus 'peace' group, no surpises that Free State 'peace' group wants to honor a Brit financed phoney 'humanitarian' group the White Helmets. Here's a Canadian journalist exposing the White Helmets for fraud they are, she starts about 1.25 seconds in -
