Conspiracy by Bandar Bin Sultan and Feltman to "destroy" Syria
Media sources reveal details of a conspiracy by Bandar Bin Sultan and Feltman to "destroy" Syria
Several media sources have revealed the details of a "well-organized" plan to destroy Syria and create chaos in the country. The plan is said to be drawn up by Bandar bin Sultan, the former Saudi ambassador to the United States, in collaboration with the former U.S. Ambassador in Lebanon, "Jeffrey Feltman" to overthrow the regime in Syria and to bring Syria back to the "stone age", according to the sources.
The lengthy and detailed plan, developed by Bandar bin Sultan and his friend Feltman in 2008 with a funding reached $2 billion, consists of many items and precise details which significantly intersect with the incidents of disturbances the city of Daraa has recently witnessed.
According to sources, the plan "strategically" depended on the exploitation of peoples' legitimate desire in freedom, dignity and getting rid of corruption and on the turning of these wishes into a revolt against the regime through convincing the people that the road to reform from within the regime is closed and the solution is an all-out revolution.
However, the plan tactically divided Syria into three areas (big cities, small cities and villages), and the established five types of networks:
1. The "Fuel": This network comprises educated and unemployed youths who are to be linked in a decentralized way.
2. The "Thugs" network, which includes outlaws and criminals from remote areas, preferably non-Syrians.
3. The "Ethnic-Sectarian" network which consists of young people with limited education representing ethnic communities that support or oppose the president. They must be under the age of 22.
4. The "Media" network that comprises some leaders of civil society institutions which have European funding not American one.
5. The "Capital" network which comprises traders, companies owners, banks and commercial centers in Damascus, Aleppo and Homs only.
On how to use these networks and link between each others, the plan provides for:
The utilization of ambitious young people from the first network (Network of fuel) through attractive phrases such as:
s You must have a voice
s Change can't be achieved except by force
s Your future is yours to determine
s Your silence is the cause, and so on ….
The plan also provides for exploiting the skills of members of the second network (Network of thugs) through:
s Training the thugs on professional killing including sniping and murdering in cold blood.
s Training them on burning public buildings quickly by using flammable substance.
s Training thugs on penetrating prisons police centers and security buildings.
According to the plan, members of the third network (sectarian ethnic netwrok) will be exploited by
s Feeding their strong feeling of support for or opposition against the President.
s Making them feel that their communities are threatened in all cases.
s Creating the concept of using excessive force against others.
s Convincing them of the idea that all who oppose them in anything are traitors.
s Leading them to a "state of color blindness", so see only black and white.
s -Exploitation their age and lack of knowledge of history and geography and leading them to the brink of being ready to do anything.
The fourth network (media network) will also be exploited to serve the plan. Members of this network will be recruited and their skills will be enhanced to lead the (public opinion) through:
s Enabling them to communicate with the media by satellite phone that can't be monitored or cut off.
s Promoting them as nationalists and as individuals who don't oppose to the regime, but call for civil society.
s Qualifying cadres and training them on techniques of modern media such as blogging and using the Internet which help them communicate with the public.
s Holding regular meetings with them and coordinating their efforts so that no one will contradict the other.
The fifth network (capital network) will be exploited by using their fear of their money being wasted, so the following must be achieved:
s Linking traders with trade officials in the European embassies under the cover of trade relations.
s Holding luxurious parties to be attended by businessmen and during which exclusively Arab Gulf deals and investments are to be made.
s Threatening them with certain sexual relations that are filmed for later blackmailing them.
s Urging them against the regime and creating ideas such as: "The country is yours and outsiders control you. The regime makes wealthy people on your expense. You are the ones who build the country and others rule it. Bashar al-Assad steals you via taxes and his supporters enjoy it. All your businesses projects are a loss due to bribery and corruption. Your wealth is threatened and must be transferred outside Syria because the regime will collapse. We will make you rule the country after the collapse of the regime."
The plan also contained in its "executive" chapter several scenarios, and precise details of how to start and move, how networks will be exploited and how to move forward.
According to executive chapter, the plan adopts the following stages:
1- If a targeted person from the Fuel Network responded, another stage will immediately begin based on exploiting his/her need for money, so the plan starts to:
s Provide him/her with small amounts of money.
s Ensure him/her a rented car, a cellular phone and Internet connection.
s Ask him/her to look for and bring other young people and use the same method with them.
s When the number of young people reach 5000 in major cities and 1500 in small cities and 500 in the villages, these people are asked to start to express their desire in change and reform. At this very stage any talk against any side of the people must be avoided. Not a word on sectarian, partisan, rightist or leftist basis is allowed at this stage.
As this stage proceeds, objections by non-enthusiasts are to be faced by a set of appropriate responses such as:
s If someone says there is a change, the response must be: "There is no change at all. This is all a lie"
s If he says change is coming, then the response must be: "We have heard this for more than 40 years"
s If anyone says that time is not suitable, the response must be: "So when must we move. Are we going to move after 100 years?"
s If one says that of our dignity lies in resisting America, the response must be: "We have nothing to do with resistance, we want to live" and so on…
s A Moving group has to be pushed into streets inside already existing gatherings such as in crowded markets, in mosques after prayers and in narrow alleys. This group is divided into three rings: The shouters, the photographers, and the hidden people. The shouters gather at the center of the circle and begin chanting within the gathering. This ring is surrounded by the ring of the hidden people, while the photographers' ring surrounds all. If anyone tried to disperse the shouters the hidden people defend them under the pretext: " let them speak", and if no one try to disperse them, the same ring of the hidden people assaults the shouters and disperse them. In both cases," We get an excellent picture for the media."
s In general, the authorities have to be provoked to be drawn into the use of torture and cruelty. Here the authorities have to choose one of two solutions; either to intervene or not to intervene.
s If the authorities don't interfere, the number of enthusiasts will begin to increase, because young people's demands will attract a bigger number of new enthusiasts who all, according to the plan, must not know anything about the network link.
s If the authorities intervene and arrest one of the network members, he/she must make himself/herself appear "innocent and pathetic", immediately change his/her stance and illusively promise the authorities not to do that again. According to the plan he/she is to be completely frozen to the final stage, but funding continues.
s If the authorities intervene and arrest one from outside the network, the incident must fully be exploited by raising the level of demands. If the security forces torture him/her, this will be better as it will help in fueling the people's feelings and here phrases linking torture to the whole regime not only to the security forces are to be promoted and the following statements and ideas are to be disseminated: "Have you seen what happened to the poor man, this is what the president wants. It isn't fair, the man wants only to live. Do those traders only have the right to have money? Is it a government or a group of thieves? The reason behind this is the top leadership", and so on ...
2- When moves start in the streets, people must be instigated as fast as possible to change their just demands into calls for the downfall of the regime. Here the following must be implemented:
s The second network, "network of the thugs", is introduced to the scene immediately to attack all of the demonstrators and security personnel.
s Videos and photos for dramatic events which hurt religious and social feelings, such as attacking women, preferably veiled ones, must be taken. As a result alleged demonstrators shout general slogans and if they are attacked by security forces it will be very excellent. But if they are attacked by civilians, the group says "security forces dressed in civilian clothes," attacked the demonstrators. However, if no one attacks them, a member of the same group will attack the demonstrators, even if this leads to minor injuries. Video shots must not last more than 20 seconds and they must be taken from a very close position not from a far one.
s The rapid use of bloodshed, because of its significant impact on the people. This includes the killing of a protester from outside the network, preferably a youth from big and famous families, or a youth who has major social ties or a highly educated person, especially a doctor, an engineer or an intellectual. The killing must be committed rapidly by snipers and with bullets of the same type used by police or security forces. This stage also includes the killing of security personnel or guarding police.
s Burning properties of the traders who have been involved in the plan and dragging them into a state of fear together with other economic figures with the purpose of having influence on the lives of as many people as possible.
s Provoking Bashar al-Assad loyalists and engaging them in polemics with others, especially the Islamists. Here the loyalists are to be accused of being from the intelligence and that they are horns of the regime and beneficiaries from the authority.
s Creating mistrust and tension between the loyalists and the people, telling about the near end of Bashar al-Assad and calling for random supportive demonstrations and calls advocating slaughter, murder and terrorism are planned to be launched. In turn, opponents keep calm and delay any move till after the creation of sectarian and ethnic killing. They have to be well-organized in their calls for political reform, freedom, democracy and civil life.
s Foiling any attempt to attain political solutions by the regime through burning symbols of power such as the Baath Party headquarters, police stations, prisons and security forces centers in addition to distorting Bashar al-Assad pictures.
3- The fourth network (The media) is introduced. The aim here is to link Bashar al-Assad to all previous era and to devalue all his actions by opening all the old files and holding the current regime responsible for them.
s Bandar bin Sultan recognizes in his plan that Bashar Assad enjoys a real popularity inside and outside Syria that should not be underestimated. He believes that this popularity must be exploited and transformed from a point of strength into a point of weakness through the use of the enthusiasm of supporters against demonstrations.
s To undermine the military, the government and the security system, Bandar believes that they must be torn into sects, and here comes the role of the third network the ( "ethnic-sectarian" network) taking into account the neutralization of major doctrines like the Shafi'I and the Hanafi. This will be done as follows:
s Urging each sect to commit horrible bloody massacres against violators. These crimes must be filmed and posted to the media as soon as possible. The start should be in places far from Damascus and there should not be a lot of blood for fear that people may retreat.
For instance, in Lattakia and Tartous, people from the Alawite sect from the network slaughter youths from the Sunni sect, cut parts of their bodies chant long live Bashar.
In Aleppo, Salafis from the network attack Alawites' villages, burn their homes and terrorizing the people to leave their villages and chant "Death to the "Nasirien" death to the enemies of the Sahaba".
In Hasakah, Arabs from the network slaughter and hang some young people and make fun of the Kurds in a visual way without language and clear enough to be understood by the Kurds without translation. Some Christians, particularly Armenians are planned to be killed.
In Daraa, "snipers" from outside the city of Daraa kill young people from the Jawabra and the Mahamid families without approaching anyone from the Abazeed and the Masalmeh families.
In the city of Al-Boukamal, the Shi'ites kill Sunnis and scream, "Oh Karbala, Oh Hussein".
In Homs, Arabs kill Turkmen and loot their shops, particularly gold shops and also kill Catholic Christians and Murshdis.
In Sewidaa, Druze members of the network kill a number of Christians in surrounding villages and burning several churches
In Qamishli, Kurd members of the network avenge the killing of Kurds in Hasaka. Some Armenians also kill Arab Muslims.
In Deir Ez-Zour, "snipers" from outside the city kill young people from the Agidat and Bani Naeem tribes without approaching smaller tribes like the "Rolla", the "Jabour" or the "Shummar" and scream during the filming in the name of the "Bokhabour and the "Mohassan".
Bandar thinks that the regime as a whole will be busy trying to settle the disputes between communities and ethnic groups. Bashar al-Assad will send delegates from his government to resolve sectarian and ethnic differences while Damascus will be empty of government pillars and here comes the turn of Damascus where each minority group avenge and the city flares up from all sides. This will be done as follows:
s The Christians in the east of Damascus kill Muslims who live among them in areas like Qassaa and Bab Touma. They also kill the Druze in the village of Jaramana.
s The Sunnis in the south of the city kill Shiites living among them in the "Shaghour" and the "Muhajereen" areas.
s Salafis in the areas of "Duma" and "Darayya" burn the headquarters of the municipality, courts and police stations.
s Alawites in the west of the city in "Mezze Jabal" area kill Sunnis who live among them.
s Kurds in the north of the city in "Rukn Eddin" area attack Arabs from all sects.
Meanwhile, Bandar believes that the army will be divided, the security systems and the government will collapse and Bashar will only have the Republican Guard, which he will not be able to move because the army will stand against him. This will make Bashar al-Assad's presence in power the cause of all problems, and here comes the role of the fifth network the (network of the capital). The following has to be implemented:
s Holding a meeting between capital owners (businessmen) and leaders of the army and security bodies as well as ministers from Damascus and Aleppo. The plan is to convince them to abandon Bashar al-Assad promising them survival after the end of the President's rule.
s In case some businessmen refuse to cooperate, they are threatened of canceling authorizations, of withdrawing investments and of sex scandals if they are among those penetrated by sexual relations.
s In case some army leaders refuse, they are threatened of imprisonment or assassination. If it is possible under a state of chaos, officers of high ranks, not from Damascus or Aleppo, could be assassinated to terrorize them.
s -A national council of businessmen, ministers and security chiefs must be formed and recognized by the United States, France, Britain, Saudi Arabia and Egypt.
Bendar believes that at this stage, the following must be achieved
s The Council must demand Bashar al-Assad's resignation.
s The Council must cut Syria's ties with Iran, Hezbollah, Hamas and the Islamic Jihad.
s The Council must secretly undertake the responsibility of completing the peace process with Israel.
s The Council must form an interim government to dissolve parties and call for early elections and for the amendment of the constitution.
s The Council must set up an inquiry commission to investigate all the symbols of the former regime. It must blame the events on the Muslim Brotherhood exclusively.
s The Council must exclusively open the Syrian economy to the U.S., European, Saudi and Egyptian companies.
In the same context, al-Alam satellite news Channel revealed that what is being posted on "Facebook" is run by about 200 people who work for a company called "Dot and Com" and who have been trained to create sedition.
According to the channel, the company and its employees work in silence and secretly under the protection of Jordan, but the company's funding and the strategy which control the company's works are set up by the Saudi intelligence - Bandar bin Sultan's Branch -.
The channel's report said the company "Dot and Com", is apparently a private company owned by someone called Mohammed al-Qaisi. The company's major center is based in the Jordanian capital Amman. It has branches in major Saudi cities. The company works with the Saudi Ministry of Defence and provides services to the Saudi intelligence system and the Ministry of Interior.
The Channel also confirmed that the company has established a crisis cell that works directly under the orders of Bandar. Two hundred internet specialists led by Saudi officers who are supported by U.S. advisers and psychological war experts, work in the company to hit Syria through Bandar bin Sultan's crisis cells particularly in southern Syria. Meanwhile, the Lebanese Marwan Hamadeh, Basem al-Sabe' and Hani Hammoud in cooperation with US Psychological war experts and a specialists in rumors called Elie Khoury manage similar crisis cells supported by officers from the Information Branch of Saad Hariri.
Bandar bin Sultan, the former Saudi ambassador in America, currently serves as Secretary General of the Saudi National Security Council. He was the only ambassador in Washington who enjoyed permanent guardianship by the US Presidential Guard. He is known for his link to issues related to supporting anti-resistance and pro-Israeli forces.
